Hi mark -
Thanks for the reply. The lat/long etc... are definitely correct - I have triple checked that. I am not certain what a TLE file is. If you would let me know, I'll check asap.

Couple quick things to check:
1--make sure you're using the same TLE file for both WinAOS and the regular part of SatPC32
2--make sure you go into Setup/Observer and get your lat/long, time zone, etc. correct
I suspect it's one of those...

>I recently downloaded pcsat32 and find it pretty amazing. I have verified that the keps are current and the time and coordinates are all correct. The program also shows all of the sats that I track in the proper place. When i click the countdown, these times are correct as well. However, when i try to get a prediction through WinAOS, the times are off by approx. 15 minutes and the coordinates for the pass are wrong. I am comparing the satpc32 results to both amsat and satscape.
