    Attached is the zipped updated Ageton checker.  When it is unzipped it will have an extension of exx.  Change that to exe before trying to run it.  (This is done to avoid problems with emails that do not accept executables, zipped or not.)  I hope this works for you.

    I do not believe Greg's Ageton Classic would have a "forbidden zone", as it can be considered a "tabular" version of the Law of Cosines.

    FYI, my Celestial Tools program includes several "mainstream" sight reduction method checkers, including Ageton and Ageton-Bayless.

    I was reading through the archives and it seems that in the Ageton-Bayless method, the Sadler technique is required when a term called K is between 82 and 98 degrees otherwise Hc could be up to 30' off. Is this also the case for Greg's Ageton Classic, or is it immune to the "forbidden zone"?
    Also, Stan, would it be possible to please re-attach your updated Ageton checker or put it in a zip archive before sending it? I tried to download it but it gave a "page not found" error
