    Notes:
    (1) Note the two positions of 96072A are amended positions- seems that the
        coordinates reported early were of the centre of the field of view-
        this is now the 5th time that I am aware that this error has occurred
        and either Im more careless than I thought I was or the computer
        program used to determine position has a bug.
    
    (2) Next trackings session tuesday night BUT it wont be a long spell again-
        Im still trying to recover from the previous session.
    
    Cheers
    Greg
