Hello Ed,
I just compared the current positions of the ISS and SO-50 in SatPC32 
and the AMSAT conline tracking program. There is no difference at all. 
My Keps file is the latest file amateur.txt.
Make sure that you are using the latest Keps files.  With "Update Keps" 
(menu "Satellites") download - for example - amateur.txt. Select that 
file as source file in menu "Satellites". The file date shown in the 
foot line of the SatPC32 main window should be the current date. If the 
footline shows a different file date the program doesn't use the file 
you downloaded but one located in another folder. Open menu "File", 
"Open" and navigate to the folder with the downloaded file (usually 
73s, Erich, DK1TB

> Somehow I have managed to clobber my SATPC32 application.  I am tracking FO-29, SO-50, ISS, AO-7, and AO-73.  The application "appears" to be tracking FO-29, AO-7, and AO-73 accurately (not sure, however) but I am positive it is not tracking the ISS or SO-50 accurately.  The footprints are entirely different than what I show using other tracking websites.  Any suggestions would be most appreciated as I need to get SATPC working with my FT-847.  Thanks in advance and you are welcome to contact me off the BB at wa7eth at frontier.com.73'..Ed  WA7ETH
