Hi Mike,

As others have noted, AO-85's keps aren't in the default locations
GPredict gets its information from.  I have the Linux version, but I
expect it's similar under Windows, if that's what you're using.

Go to Edit -> Preferences, and select the TLE Update tab.  Under the
Update from the Internet section there's a list of websites, all from
celestrak.  Click on Add TLE source, and edit the highlighted section with:


Be sure the box "add new satellites to local database" is checked, and
hit OK.

Then update the update the database with Edit -> Update TLE data -> from
Network.  You should then be able to find AO-85 in the search list under
Configure (cleverly hidden under the little triangle in the upper right

GPredict is my primary satellite prediction and tracking app.  Enjoy!

> Hello,   Seeing the posts I downloaded Gpredict  to give it a try. I could not find AO-85 (FOX-1A) in satellites listed. Even AO-91 is in the current list. Can it be under some other name? I found a way to add a bird but looks like a pain to update. Easy way?  And if AO-91 is in the list why was AO-85 left out?TNX 73 Mike K4MIA
