LOL, I did not generate this set of 250 points.
This is a little strange. You seem to be avoiding the question. I need a practical solution not a mathematical proof.
250 evenly distributed around the earth. Need to divide these 250 points into 6 subsets or subnetworks of ~ 250/6 = 40 points each which are themselves evenly distributed around the earth.
Indeed, generate 40 evenly distributed points on a sphere and choose closes points in super set. Easy enough ... but how to generate 40 evenly distributed points around the earth?
