Are you using the correct time zone setting?   Jamaica is UTC -5....

I've been using Orbitron but I see it is not matching the times on the AMSAT 
Pass Predictions, so you must be correct.  I have downloaded fresh info with 
Orbitron's TLE Updater so I'm not sure what's wrong, some type of issue with 
the program or what.

I'll try AO-51 tomorrow morning using the times on the AMSAT page.
