I use the same iPhone app, Frank.  It's a shame that they don't include those newer sats.

I've put an icon on my screen to the following URL to at least have a way to see pass predictions for those satellites even though it's not as easy to use as the SatExpPro app:

  What I understand is that the keps are not available as the satellite was launched using a military rocket.You will have to manually copy from

   I use an IOS satellite tracking program called SatExpPro which downloads 
  the TLE's from Celestrak. I can't find the TLE's for AO-85 at the 
  Celestrak site. Does the Celestrak site use a different name for 
  AO-85? There is no listing for Fox either. The SatExpPro program does 
  not allow for the downloading of the TLE's from the AMSAT site which has 
  the TLE's for AO-85.

  I use SatPC32 on my desktop and download the TLE's from the AMSAT site 
  for AO-85. Is there a reason that the Celestrak site would not host the 
  TLE's for AO-85?

  Thanks for any help in solving this mystery.
