There are many very worthy sources of TLE data and satellite catalogues. 
However, there
is no user-defined source. I.e one where the user can:

Categorise their own satellite types
Choose from one of the many aliases for an individual satellite
Have satellite channels / modes available for viewing
Have individual / mixed schedules (constellations) available

If there is any interest in creating such a service to the AMSAT/CubeSat 
then I should be interested in discussing it. I should be particularly 
interested in API
proposals from existing source providers.

This will NOT be a commercial undertaking, any income will go to AMSAT 

I am going to make a similar propsal at the AMSAT-UK Colloquium in two 
weeks time.
