    	Well, I needed the AMSAT format to run in a program that would have
    transmitted STARSHINE's position to other ham operators in the area.
    	Using STK, I made a set of times & AZ/EL's and went out to see if I could
    see anything.  Report?  NOTHING.
    	Anybody else have better results at seeing STARSHINE?
    	I was really hoping to see a reentry tonight, been trying for some time
    now.  Might anyone have some suggestions in that area?  Is there a "trick"
    to it?
    
    	Thanks,
    	Earl
