    Most observers, except British veterans, use the Interactive Orbit Determination
    (IOD) format by George D. Lewis, and the corresponding forms entry program
    (ObsEntry.exe) 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 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 ( ) keeps a registry, and he MAY accept a suggestion
    similar to those of nearby observers.
