    Hi Geoff,
    
    The differance can be easily explaned.
    How old were your TLE's?
    When they are a bit outdated a difference of several minutes is quite well
    possible
    depending on how high the orbit of the sat is.
    Lower sats are more effected by the earth's atmosphere than higher ones.
