the AO-73 Keps are now available from the Celestrak site.

a. Copy  the following address to the aux. file Celestrak.SQF (all aux.
files can be opened and edited from menu "?", "Auxiliary Files"):

b. Copy the following line to the file AmsatNames.txt
39417 13066B   AO-73
That will convert the Celestrak sat name 213-066B to AO-73. In menu
"Satellites" choose "SatNames", "Use Amsat Nanmes if Available".

c. Copy the folling lines to Doppler.SQF:
AO-73,145960.0,435140.0,USB,LSB,REV,,, Transponder

In menu "Satellites" choose "Sat Groups" and select - for example- the group
"Diverse" to have the sat in a separate list. With "Update Keps" download 
the Celestrak file. It will appear in  the left list of the menu. Click on 
the file name. In the middle list you will see AO-73 with this name. Select 
it for the right list and click "OK". The group will  later automatically 
use the chosen Celestrak file.

73s, Erich, DK1TB
