Mir Keps

I just (0120 UTC 8/3) heard considerable packet activity on 145.985.  It
was such a strong signal that I suspected a local terrestrial source, but
it then rapidly faded.

I then looked at my latest orbit predictions, and found that they predicted
a pass from 0058 to 0107.  I am using the latest Keps sent out by Amsat,
but when I run the prediction, it reports that the element set epoch is 90
days ago.

Can someone explain to me why I am having this discrepancy?  Should I have
Keps with a more recent element set epoch?

Thanks and 73,
Paul W4SKI
