Bruce,
According to Special Relativity the satellite clocks would be slower. Since Special Relativity does not account for gravitation, there is no way for me to tell which clocks are slower because I have no idea what the effect of gravitation is on a clock. Scientists are payed trillions of dollars per year to experiment with these things. All I have is a cheap computer.
However, I have noticed that scientists do not like to talk about the distance contraction when you show them the following equation.

c=300,000 km/sec=x/t=x'/[t(c-v)/c]

= x'Lorentz / t'Lorentz
