To all so far, Thanks. I think I'll take the question back and keep studying the problem. > http://5b4az.chronos.org.uk/pages/norad.html , which is a > translation of Kelso's pascal code into ANSI C. [...] Getting a little far away from the question. Re-interpreting source code is one way to verify that the software design solution used by the author of the code predicts the tracking. I can probably (and did already actually) run this code and generate tracking data. The formulae in the code are suspiciously close to the handbook, but there was a lot of reorganization of the equations to the point I had to replace the brain-fuse. Glad there are spares handy. I'm sure Dr. Kelso, et al. code is just peachy. It's not quite what I'm after. I need to use the formulae in the handbook to arrive at the same answer. If I stumble across an email reply that addresses the questions regarding the formulae in the handbook, I'll summarize. I may trip over the answer myself if I keep re-reading the handbook.
