skymap test

Can someone check to see if I am going crazy.

Try the following geo sat as an example

Galaxy 11                      40.0 v
1 26038U 99071A   02128.82175324  .00000000  00000-0  10000-3 0  6463
2 26038   0.0783  74.4544 0006274 213.6969 143.1828  1.00268196  8808

Compare the mag value for that compared to say using a value of 10.0 in the 
satmag.dat file. I have tried it, and I get the same results when using the 
all satellite search menu, and using F7 then F9 and then F10 to generate the 
report file.

I had tried using option F7 under lighting constraints menu to change 

Use Standard Magnitudes in SATMAG.DAT


Use Std. magnitudes in ephem file if present

Either I am doing something wrong, are there is a bug in skymap, then I have 
to get out the bug spray.

I am using version 6.6

Thanks for the help
