Reid is correct.
Unfortunately, WISP has a limited number of entries (50) for satellites in
In order to add a new satellite:
1. Go to Database->Edit Satellite data.
2. Go through the list and delete the satellites you do not use or at least
one for your entry.
3. Modify a Kep list to contain only the satellite or satellites you want to
update (AO-51). Limit this only to the ones you want to add.
4. Go to Database->Update Satellite Database and open your modified Kep
The new satellites you put in your Kep file should be in your database and
viewable unless you exceeded 50 satellites, This is the reason for modifying
a Kep file to add only the ones you want to add. Once they are in the
database they will remain unless you delete it. When you load future
keplerian element sets only the ones in your database will be updated
provided there is an update. If your Kep set contains more than 50 satellite
elements they will be added if there are empty slots available in the
database. Otherwise, they will be ignored.
