   this should be in the archives and its also on celestraks own website...

in case you missed it...

      Status codes (where present): 
      [+] = Operational [-] = Nonoperational 
      [P] = Partially Operational [B] = Backup/Standby 
      [S] = Spare [X] = Extended Mission 

so pick the tle that has the latest epoch time... and ignore the
status code
