    Default MPC Observatory Code

    Beginning in mid-September, and again in mid-October, I have been unsuccessful in trying to get the Minor Planet Center to create an observatory code for my location. I've followed the MPC guidelines on their website. I believe I included all of what is needed and emailed to the right address, but I've gotten no response, nothing. So I have clearly made some mistake, but without feedback I can't know how to fix it.

    I'd appreciate if someone who's done this before would look over the attached file and give a clue about what might be wrong. The attached was the most recent. To submit, I copied the data from this file to an email and sent it as plain text to obs@cfa.harvard.edu. I got an ISP delivery receipt but no other confirmation from MPC. It's been four weeks since this filing. I have many more observations to submit, but can't.

    Thanks.
