The ISS reboosted on the 3rd, which results in significant errors until all
the Keps catch up.  Make CERTAIN that you are looking at the latest Keps
from Celestrak, AMATEUR.TXT.  If you are using the AMSAT Keps, which come
out weekly, it may be a few days before they catch up.

Subject: [amsat-bb] SATPC32 ISS Showing weird operation

Hello group, after finally getting my SSB part of the station fully
operational, I then moved on to getting my packet operations up and running
, and with great success, one wee  problem, I have noticed this when
tracking the ISS, I am able to still digipeat off the station even long
after it is supposed to be beyond the horizon according to my Satpc32 ISS
software. My keps are up to date via the Satpc32 software, is there a error
due to the large amount of mass now docked on the ISS? or have the keps not
be uploaded in a timely fashion to the server I get my keps from?...

Run down of my operation conditions here are as follows...

Radio  - Kenwood TS2000
Software SATPC32 + Satpc32 ISS
PC - Dell P4 2.4Ghz CPU with internet connection

Is there another method of getting my keps to show more accurate tracking of
this big bird?...
