TO ALL AMATEURS

If your tracking program complains about loading the new elements I 
relayed from Gil Carman, WA5NOM, in SAREX Bulletin 6 then you might 
add a space character in each of the two lines (in the two-line 
element set only, not the verbose AMSAT element set which is okay).  
Add it just before the last group of digits as shown here: 

STS-093
1 25866U          99205.98953322  .00195264  00000-0  45119-3 0   118
2 25866  28.4688 185.2125 0016134 214.0160 145.9591 15.96243205   302
                                                                 ^   
The above is a good set.  I'm sure most programs interpreted the 
data without hesitation.  The problem was that I trimmed the line 
to fit my page width format style.  Apparently the edit wasn't 
needed.  I appologize for any inconvenience.  

Good luck in the experiment!  

Sincerely,
