That usually happens when the name of the satellite in the DOPPLER.SQF file
does not EXACTLY match the name of the satellite in the source of Doppler
information.  For instance "AO-51" vice "ECHO (AO-51)."  The Keps
distributed by AMSAT all use the standard designations, but many of the
other sources have other information in the name line.  One way to solve
this is to look at the AMSATNAMES.TXT file in the Auxiliary Files section of
Help, "?."  It allows SATPC32 to identify the satellites from their official
designations and use the common name.

Subject: [amsat-bb] SatPC32 Cat doppler problem

I find SatPC32 is failing to read doppler information for some satellites
although the doppler.sqf entry seems correct.  The CAT window show no CAT
data and the 'Data Line' at the bottom  shows the last line of doppler.sqf.
Any ideas?
