[amsat-bb] TLE UP-Dater In Orbitron

Hi Joe,

I do not exactly know what problems you encounter, but a common
pitfall is that Orbitron does not have the correct persmissions to
download TLEs to the default folder (program files / orbitron/ TLE).
To solve that, run Orbitron as administrator. It should pick up
sufficient rights to write to the TLE folder.

Workaround 1: install Orbitron somewhere out of Program Files
Workaround 2: put the TLEs somewhere out of the Orbitron TLE folder.

Hope that helps
