It has been asked here a time or two recently what methods can be
utilized to generate custom TLE sets. Some focused on how to
manipulate files while I offer a suggestion for downloading a custom
set tailored to the satellites you seek to observe.
The method I utilize is via the website Space-Track.org. There you
can define favorites lists containing the satellites you desire to
track. From the Favorites list you can then retrieve a custom set of
TLE based on the list you create.
You can create multiple Favorites lists containing satellites that
suit your fancy. I have two lists created; one for inactive
satellites I occasionally monitor and one for active transponder
Visit https://www.space-track.org and follow directions. The site is
fairly straightforward to utilize and works fine in Internet Explorer,
Chrome, and Firefox..
