Hi Ed,

Is that time in Orbitron the start  of your pass, as the on time at 21:01 is 
for 7 mins... if its the start time then you should get almost the full 7 
mins over your house?

Hope that helps..

If I read this right, the satellite will not be "on" during the pass over my

AO27 schedule UTC

The pass over my house is listed on Orbitron as happening at 20:59 UTC.

Does my figuring make sense?
