 This isn't true. SATPC32 will graphically track the birds with the new 
improved Clestrak Kep's, BUT won't do any frequency Doppler correction, as 
the file containing the frequency information(DOPPLER.SQF) would have to be 
changed also. There, SATPC32 looks for a match containing the full name, you 
would have to re-edit the file everytime a sat changed status.
