          I just cross-checked Mike's GEO.TLE file against his ALLDAT file
    and note that only 60% of the geosats in GEO are also in ALLDAT. Of the
    remaining 40%, roughly 38% have epochs during the past two weeks or so
    and the other 2% date back to 1999 and 2000.
          Anyway, thanks for the pointer to the geosats file ... I have
    added it to my list of daily downloads.
