Hi Paul,

Wow, that was a quick response.

Yes, to a large extent it is a software engineering exercise. I was
going to do it for my own uses in the shack(s), so that I can have a
single source of information. If anyone else is interested, then so much
the better.

I had thought about publishing KEPS and that would be the easy one to
do. All we would need would be a simple schema:

<elementset id="9999">
	<satellite name="AO-40" ... />

Agreed it would be compute intensive, but that's part of the challenge

City location is easy as there are several lat/lon databases floating
around the internet for very reasonable prices. Time zone will be
interesting, but not insurmountable. If everyone stuck to GMT it would
be easier.

Many thanks for the input. I'm going to be setting up a discussion board
on the site if you are interested.
