[aprssig] KJ4ERJ-14 ISS Object

Now that I've most of my antenna farm back up, I've been experimenting with 
receiving the ISS 145.825 APRS/packet transmissions.

I'm using an Icom discone antenna which works well due to it's fat vertical 
pattern,  and an old Bearcat 760 scanner, which works quite nicely due to it's 
rather wide IF bandpass.   (No need to worry about +/- tuning due to 
doppler.)    I'm feeding the "tape recording" output of the Bearcat into the 
mic jack of a netbook running the UZ7HO Soundmodem. My ultimate plan is to turn 
this setup into a full time sat gate.

However, the times I am actually hearing the space station have no correlation 
to when my APRS maps are show the   KJ4ERJ-14  ISS object   as being overhead.

Lynn, are the Keps for this object updated automatically or do you have to 
periodically update them by hand?
