Hi Jerry,

I have uploaded manually the Funcube-1/AO73 keps in my
Nova satellite tracker software without any problem.

Copy and paste this 2 line keps into a text file:

1 39417U 13066B   13328.52822701  .00004709  00000-0  65186-3 0   152
2 39417  97.7995  41.0710 0063010 185.6906 174.3718 14.77115537   473

I gave the file name the name funcube1.txt

Go to Nova for windows menu to ---> Kep Elements--->
Disk file update---->Manual update from file-----> Click on
the "Update" button.
Now you see a window appear and browse to the funcube1.txt
If you can not find click in the same window all files.
If you have uploaded the keps from the file than go to
the Nova menu to ---> Views configure current view --->
Click on Artificial satellites ---> browse through the satellite -
list till you see Funcube-1 and drag it to the right window.
Click on the OK button and now you should see Funcube-1 on
the world map.

I have written this message verry basic so I hope others
with less experience understand it too.

Good luck with Funcube-1.
