Congrats, Hector.

I printed several STRaND-1 packets and need to figure out what to do with them ;)

Which TLEs did you use?  Based on timestamps and scrolling time back in SatPC32, it looks to me like the bird might be behind the pre-launch keps I'm using.  Meaning, I see packets time stamped at the predicted LOS.  I was NOT in the shack, but that's my guess based on time stamps.
