Sorry Greg & everyone; I was not knowledgeable enough to put a number on it – after the last pass I trust that everyone has been able to make their own adjustments.

For me it was in the area of a few minutes, but it was moving so fast compared to other sats that I couldn’t get much of a feel for how far off from the track I was expecting.  Just not enough experience on this end.

Also, the predicted AOS from the latest Celestrak keps agrees within 6 seconds to using Nico's 19:00z set.  I'm thinking it's going to be about on time, no?

  How "way" ahead?  Minutes?  Tens?  My next pass is reported to be at 19:36z (11:36am local PST).  (It's the only pass gPredict reports for the future.)

    For anyone planning to try the next two USA passes, please note that it was WAY ahead of the current TLE's. 

    I had to go to manual rotor control; fortunately on the SDR display I could just slide the RX frequency over and the tracking was in the ballpark from there.

    But that image that was posted recently looked like the perigee really 
    hasn't changed a LOT the orbit has become much more circular.

      I would have to think that when the satellite does re-enter the atmosphere it will be in the southern hemisphere because it's Parigi is down there.
