    Most observers, except British veterans, use the Interactive Orbit Determination
    (IOD) format by George D. Lewis, and the corresponding forms entry program
    (ObsEntry.exe) http://users2.ev1.net/~mmccants/programs/obsentry.zip where you
    will also find the description.
    
    VERY briefly, its output file header is:
    
    USSPC Intl.ID          YYYYMMDDHHMMSSsss MX    HHMMmmm DDMMmm MX   MMm Ee
    
    but the HHMMmmm DDMMmm part varies with a 'Format code' preceding - you can
    enter azim/elev or RA/Dec, in decimal or sexagesimal formats.
    
    At http://www.heavens-above.com you can also enter your observations in a form,
    PLUS select observations by yourself AND/OR others, and by date AND/OR object,
    and have the results formatted as IOD, or any of the British formats, or for the
    ELCOR analysis program.
    
    You should first get a 4-digit station code. I believe Russell (
    eberst@cableinet.co.uk ) keeps a registry, and he MAY accept a suggestion
    similar to those of nearby observers.
