    PPAS later. Last night of star party; a total success on DSO's and flaring geosats. Not as happy with my searches for  classfd objects - user error is main problem, using unfamiliar equipment in an upside down sky {apologies to Greg et al}. However, COGO elsets also appear to be loose, especially in mean motion, just as Mike had warned me.
    
    One benefit is I had some conversations with the Koreans who were there. Aussies I meet have so far been less interested in HEO / GEO tracking, but the Koreans may look into it.
    
    Used site number 8888 = 31.2773 S, 149.2790 E
    Equipment was typically 18" f/4.2 Dobsonian reflector at 46x or 87x manual sweeping by star hop. I did attempt to use Argo Navis on another 18" and even a 25" scope, with poor results. UT is from the Australian Speaking Clock and my usual Robic stopwatch.

    Notes:
    14930 seen as UNID.
    Sweeps with no results (A = allsat.tle choice of earliest prediction, C= classfd.tle):
    26770 C-10 min -> C+10 min
    10016 fooled by 25460
