NOTES:
--------
(1) Did an experiment to see how practical to use fair aperture
     small field of view for LEO satellites, so tried OTV4 -
     worked well.

(2) #25677 is GLOBALSTAR M019 - quite variable.

(3) Geosats will come tomorrow - Ive had enough of measuring for
     today - NOT my favourite past time!

Cheers
Greg
