I would like to receive them, and I would prefer Mike's format for
elcor,
fitelem, firstorb, so they can be used for orbit determination without
reformatting.

If we establish a permanently ordered list of site coordinates of
those who contribute obs. of classified objects, we can combine obs.
from several sites with minimal confusion risk.

The final number on the first sample obs. is a weight ( 1.0 default )

 Mike McCants has modified ELCOR to accept his input format
 of FITELEM.  I have used the same input format for FIRSTORB.

 Mike:

=2E..  I have made a number of minor improvements to elcor.
I fixed it to accept my input format and output residuals in degrees.

Here is Paul Hirose's original test data in my input form:
