I need an Orbit Guru for our next APRS satellite.

We need someone to be able to generate a ground track (LAT/LONG) table for
a mildly elliptical LEO orbit that starts at 5 South,0 E, with integer
values (rounded) every minute for 95 minutes.

This gets loaded on the satellite so that it can automatically send out its
APRS POSITION as it flies.  Thus, ground users will actually see the
distance and direction to the satellite live in their mobiles or portables
and on their maps.

Yes, we did it manually from Instantrack (took HOURS) but we will need to
do it quickly at the last possible pre-launch opportunity, so we need
someone that can generate the table quickly and in our final format.
