    Hey Allen,
         I live on the 33rd parallel as well in Plano
    Texas (a suburb north of Dallas TX) and there is also
    the Lake Kickapoo site west of where I live. I wonder
    if you couldn't take a ham radio receiver and pick up
    the bounced signal off satellites from the comfort of
    you home - even during the day. It looks like others
    have done similar things:
    http://www.itr-datanet.com/~pe1itr/navspasur.html
    I wonder how you would do this; interferometric
    (several antennas in orthogonal axis - all tuned to
    216.99 MHz?) or would you need to know the time the
    signal was sent to make any kind of sense (coherence).
    *If you could do this* you could have you're own TLE's
    for any sat at inclination of 33 degrees or higher!
