Where can I get the correct KEPS for "AO 73"?
Today at Great Bridge HS we wanted to listen to "AO 73" data transmissions. We are using our HP lap top to control our gear. Downloaded NOA Keps. They were wrong! With a cell phone and app we were able to manually track "AO 73" but using our AMSAT SATPAC program we could not. It was at least 1 hour behind. "AO 73" was very strong with dtat transmissions. All other SATS we track are great.
Our Portable SATCOM station will be at Great Bridge HS for a couple of weeks. The electronics and media class will be using it. We are in class from 0845 - 1015 am EST. If we can catch a pass on any of the birds we would like to speak with you.
The class is instructed by W4RMY. He is aided by members of the K4AMG club and members.
