Updated AO-40 Keplerian elements from NORAD Data



NORAD / Space Command determined an accurate set of Keplerian elements for
AMSAT OSCAR 40 using tracking data from their radars at Eglin AFB, FL and
the Kwajalein atoll.  The tracking data has good time and geometric
dispersion, yielding high quality Keplerian elements.  Thus the following
Keps supersede previous estimates:

AO-40
