[amsat-bb] Updated Fox-1D Preliminary TLEs

Dave,

Here are the lines for Fox-1Cliff and Fox-1D:

FOX-1Cliff,145920,435300,FM,FM,NOR,0,0,U/V
FOX-1Cliff,145920,1267300,FM,FM,NOR,0,0,L/V

FOX-1D,145880,435350,FM,FM,NOR,0,0,U/V
FOX-1D,145880,1267350,FM,FM,NOR,0,0,L/V

Note that when they get an Oscar number, you will need to change the name in
each line to match, so SatPC32 will connect the two.  Same for the Tone.sqf
file.

73,

Alan
WA4SCA
