    Brad:
    
    You're being too kind, in that I had one good example and one horrible
    one. The average isn't good.
    
    But, I offered to Dave that I needed to go over my transcription of
    George's text data into my spreadsheet, since his results for the second
    data set were good. I've done that now, and got quite a surprise. I
    translated the times for the first set, since they were not in a format
    that could be used directly. Then, I assumed that all succeeding sets
    would be the same. But the second was quite different! The first set went
    from 12:50 to 12:59, with times at one minute intervals thereafter. The
    second set went 12:50 to 13:10, followed by times at one minute
    intervals. So, I need to use the correct times. Oh, the folly of
    assumptions!
    
    I just re-did the second set of data with the above times, and the
    Longitude comes out 10�49.3'W, much closer. Whew!
