I have found Orbitron's to be off when I download the keps from 
celstrak.com.  I assume you are downloading them from there - correct?  If 
so, try getting it from stoff.pl.  I have always found them to be right on. 
I have checked N2YO's tracking program out before, and it is very 
dependable.  If the two disagree, I would go with N2YO.

Subject: [amsat-bb] Web Page VS Orbitron

I found a web page that says it can track


and i installed a new Orbitron, and gave it the latest set of keps it
wanted to do.

Thing is the two things do not agree at all where Oscar 7 is at.  not
even close.

soo  how do I tell who is right other than to wait for a pass from
either one and see if i hear anything.
