Because the amsat site is an unusable pile of crap, with various bits
and pieces that don't entirely talk to each other.

The keps download and the pass predictions should pull their information
from the same source.  This would be incredibly easy to script.
However, it appears that the downloadable keps are only updated when
someone can be bothered to get off their hindmost and upload a text file
containing them.

Several people (including) have offered to fix or rewrite the amsat.org
site, even for free.  Instead they're all too busy with their HEO
