    Oops!  Never mind!  I had a major misunderstanding:
    
    I assumed the solar panels faced the sun, but now I suspect these 
    calculations assume the panels face the earth (along with the
    communications antenna).  This means that being on the sun-sat line isn't 
    ideal but instead you want to get an "angle shot".  Now it all makes sense 
    to me.  Oct 7 *is* the ideal date for that "bank shot" for 42N.
