    Hello everyone,
    
    I have just subscribed to this list for the first time, so let me extend a
    hello to everyone out there. I'm currently located in Sydney (Australia)
    where I intend to stay for another 3 years pending completion of my research
    work at UNSW. I'm involved with Antarctic Astrophysics, currently working on
    a satellite based site evaluation for the Antarctic plateau (South Pole,
    Dome C and Dome A) in regards to atmospheric transparency in a number of
    wavelengths as well as high altitude turbulence.
    
    It is through this work as well as my HRPT station here in Oz
    (http://www.ozabove.com) that I became interested in satellites about a year
    ago and began developing a satellite tracking software that has a bit more
    spiff to it than what is commonly out there (http://www.satwhere.com  for
    more info).
    
    Now for the question I had: A number of weeks ago I came a across a website
    that featured amateur maintained elements for the DMSP and other military
    satellites, but now even with the help of google, I can't find that site for
    the life in me! Does anyone know about that site or where to fetch those
    "secret" elements?
    
    Cheers
    
    - Balt
