I think Pedro might be referring to adding keps to an existing keps
file by manually pasting from the clipboard. Downloading and updating
a keps file is well described in the SatPC32 manual, but I always have
to dig around to find the actual files to manipulate with a text
Here's what I do:
1. Under the 'Satellites' menu, select and recently update a text file.
2. Go to the SatPC32/Kepler directory to find the text file by the
same name as the one you selected in step 1.
3. Open that file with a text editor such as notepad and carefully
append the new Keps. Save this file.
4. Restart SatPC32.
For new satellites, you might want to include a new line in
SatPC32/DOPPLER.SQF to make use of doppler tuning.
