That is an artifact of the way Keps are being supplied from Celestrak, not
SATPC32. They are indicators of the current SC functionality, as the other
poster mentioned. From an earlier report, SATPC32 works OK with them as far
as tracking, but it can't locate the Doppler correction data since the names
don't appear to match. If you want to use Doppler tracking, download from
the AMSAT archives, or edit the files from Celestrak.
Tim had a good idea, in principle, but it would be nice if it were possible
to select a download without "comments." Or perhaps the next version of
SATPC32 could deal with the "improvement" by ignoring the status comments on
the satellite name line. I just use the AMSAT Keps service and copy them to
several directories they are needed.
