In the same utilities directory is a program called SORTNENG which will
extract specific satellites from a list of Keps.  I use it in combination
with NASAWASH in a batch file to send customized lists to the several
tracking programs I use.

I used to use a program called NASAWASH.  You set up a "mysats" file that
specifies which birds you are interested in, and then you can set up a batch

file that will automatically parse whatever input file you specify (like
nasa.all) and output the filtered results to the filename and location that
you specified.

Looks like it's still available in the AMSAT software archive at

Hello everyone,

Is there a program or script that could automate the creation of a custom
keplerian element list that includes satelites that i´m only interested in,
from data from either either spacetrack or celestrack?
My idea is to create something similar to the list that AMSAT publishes but
more specific to my needs, meaning that there are some sats in there that I
don´t care about.

I tried the TLEretriever but no cigar there, at least for the purpose in
