How did you get from -35.18333 to 35 10.10? 0.18333*60 = 10.9998 which
would come out as either 35 10.99 or 35 11.00? Unless the -35.18333 was
supposed to be -35.168333 (10.10/60=0.168333) and you dropped a 6 in the
transribing?
No, there is no 6 on findU. You are correct that it should have been 11 but this still could be rounding errors. Again, very far off from aprs.fi.
