I have renamed the files with only the first letter capitalized to fix the 
case-sensitive OS issue.

I have also e-mailed Michael Wyrick to double-check the new Topr.txt file, 
as it shows the analog transponder only on for four minutes, and it 
definitely seemed to be on for the usual 7 minutes when I listened to a pass 
yesterday.  I think it's a typo...
