Hello Michael,
I will send you a Keps file "amateur.txt" with the data for Delfi C3 from
their website with a separate mail.

When you add the Delfi-C3 Keps from their website to a file like amateur.txt
make sure that the 3 Delfi-C3 lines have the exact format as the other data
sets of amateur.txt. The data set on the Delfi  website is in Norad format.
The line ending chars of these files are different from those of the
Celestrak files  (i.e. amateur.txt). You will see that when you load both
files into Word and let Word dipsplay ALL CHARS.

Use Notepad to paste the Delfi C3 data into amateur.txt and then make sure
that  the  Delfi-C3 data set looks exactly equal with the other data sets.
The satellite name must begin over the "1" of the first data line. The data
lines must have the same length as with the other data sets.
73s, Erich, DK1TB
