I did a simple edit, spacing the data fields out like an existing entry in 
my keps file. They then were recognized by SatPC32...

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
