As a side note, I am trying to understand hat purpose is served by restricting the keps to a single public distribution point. I am failing. Is there an actual realistic rationale, or is this yet another example of security theater?

For reasons which have to do with AO-85 being launched on a NRO mission, there are permanent restrictions on the dissemination of its Keps. The only place you can download them is the AMSAT list. It is called nasabare.txt, though your program may call it something different such as "Amateur (amsat.org)." I don't use GPredict so can't give you details, but the issue exists no matter what program you are using.

<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
