Thanks for all the pre-launch info!

I'm sure it's operator error, but I have not been able to get Orbitron to 
recognize those preliminary TLE's.

Some of the digit positions (number of digits in certain fields) look 
different from all the other TLE's that are recognized.  Thanks in advance 
if anyone can let me know how to clean up those pre-launch TLE's to work in 


-Scott,  K4KDR
