I noticed something odd today while operating satellites for FD. I usually get anyone who wants in the audience involved, I have someone log, I make the contact and run the s/w and radio, I also pass the mic to anyone who wants to make a sat contact, and another person will point the antenna. We find a north marker and I give that person my cell phone as a antenna pointing aid. Anyway on my cell phone running GoSatWatch an iPhone app that there was a AO-73 pass at 9:28 EST. The pass was a nice 77 degree's. I walked to my sat setup with the group and turned on the TS2000 and my Laptop, and I couldn't find the pass on my laptop. To make a longer story short after looking at all data the 9:28 on the iPhone pass was a phantom pass. I noticed it was only 38 minutes after the last AO-73 pass. I still can see it after doing a kep update in my phone. Anyone else see this? Anyone know why this might happen? I've never seen it before.
