As Mark said, it is probably either a QTH or a KEPS issue.  Most likely QTH,
since by default they look at the same keps.  I keep ITrack around to break
the tie whenever there is a discrepancy with other programs.  That tells me
where to look for the glitch.  While not as detailed, the real time tracking
feature on the AMSAT-NA web site can provide some information.   

Good luck,

Dear Folks,

I am attempting to get myself back on the satellites and am having some
problems with SatPC32.

Although WinAOS gives me accurate satellite position data, SatPC32 does not.
Furthermore satellite AOS/LOS data is different between the two programs,
sometimes by a half an hour.

I have checked all the settings and have tried updating the Keps but can't
seem to get the program to display accurate data.

Has anyone had this problem or does anyone know if there way around this
other than re-installing SatPC32?  (I'd rather not have to input all the
settings again if I don't have to.)
