Re: AO-07: orbits 26397 & 26398

Hi chaps,

you are correct, 

I have been quoting erroneous orbit numbers...
Just also realized that a couple of programs 
I am using cannot cope with dates a few tens 
of years off from now, in either direction :-(

It's just much easier to talk about orbit
numbers than unambiguous times when referring
to SWL reports :-)

Me thinks the real orbit figure is somewhere in
the order of 109731 or so (for today at around
2100 UTC), but this is really wild guessing.

Maybe our orbital mechanics specialists 
can give a more sophisticated estimate ?

Ah well, let's talk UTC times for the time being ;-)
