Bruce,
Thank you for your kind explanation. It was very impressive. It is wonderful to see that the trillions of dollars spent on satellites were not entirely wasted.
My personal opinion is that your equations are not really an exact representation of reality, but are based on the idea of a distance contraction that does not exist, which gives you a close approximation, correct to several decimal places at the velocities involved in satellite orbits.
However, please do not consider this an attempt to minimize your considerable accomplishment of memorizing these equations. I just do not see how they could be the exact representation of time and space that I am looking for personally.
