Hi Joe,

Looks page you mention could be using at times older keps.

I compared with other predictions and you are right, they were off by
about 10 minutes.

Give a try to http://lu7abf.com.ar/pass this page updates keps 8 times
a day, using the most recent, either celestrak.com or space-track.org
Good luck on next hunt of BY70-1

73, LU7ABF, Pedro
