I was very active in the 70's and 80's on the Birds.

And now am attempting to try to help some new folk get into them.

A local Newbie has been trying AO-51 with no luck,  So I volunteered to 
see what he is doing and where he needs help.

BUT........  And there always seems to be a "BUT" isnt there?

I am getting HUGE discreptencies on Pass times.  My location is at,

Latitude: *43.61°*
Longitude: *-90.08°*
Local time zone: GMT -5

And every source I have tried does not give the same time for my next 
available Pass.

Amsat web page,  http://www.n2yo.com/passes/?s=28375
And Heavens Above.

All three aren't even close to each other. My location is dead on with 
all of them.  So I am confused as to why each source is sooo different 
from the other.
