You have been able to download it for weeks. However, the wrong satellite was identified with it.
Using the SatPC32 AMSATNAMES.TXT you can identify a satellite with the official numbers, which I did a
few weeks back. Put in the line
39444 13066AE AO-73
in the file, or edit the existing one, and you will get the right AO-73 object. Note that the current
NASA.ALL file has the old identification, and will probably be updated later this week.
