I am looking for the "easy way out" here.
I've loaded up the current Celestrak keps
for the new satellites. Names have now been
assigned to KKS-1 and PRISM (amongst

PRISM with significant separation in time.
Suddenly the new keps have them orbiting

someone already knows the answer/s??
Mahalo for your kokua (Thanks for your help)
