NASAWASH is still available at http://www.amsat.org/amsat-new/tools/softwareArchive.php#pc-util or direct from me at http://www.mustbeart.com/software/nasawash.html -- but it doesn't have that feature. It cleans up a TLE file but can't select a subset of the satellites.

There are a couple of other old DOS programs still available on the AMSAT web site that do have the feature. Follow the link above and look for EXTRACT or SORTNENG.
