ISS PASSES

Hello,
I have just joined the fan club and am a little confused.
When I look up the times of passes then look at the aprs tracking they are different. I have listed my qth ok but when I am told its overhead its usually in a different park of the world
what am I doing wrong

regards

mike

Welcome Mike,

Maybe open http://maps.google.com and verify your Latitude and Longitude for your location.

Check the values you put in to issfanclub.com website. Did you forget the MINUS SIGN? 44.952772,-123.021181 Location for Salem Oregon USA. We are west of London England and use minus Longitude values.

After posting this, I will check too.
Don't have a good answer for you question, but share my links below. The "aprs tracking" app was valuable to see. Thanks for pointing it out. I had not used it before.

I am a simple Ham Radio Operator and use http://heavens-above.com with the Tick "ALL Passes"
to view the crossing times of the ISS from my latitude and longitude. Besides the SKY View look for the Ground Track view to see which way the ISS passes your location. You can also check other visible satellites here.

There are many other Satellite tracking programs that others use. Your mileage may vary.
