[amsat-bb] lost amateur satellite.txt in Sat32PC

Hi Scott,
to me it seems that the current Celestrak file amateur.txt is faulty and 
doesn't contain Keplerian data.

I  download the Celestrak files noaa.txt and amateur.txt directly into  
my browser.
To do so I opened Celestrak.SQF (SatPC32 menu "?", "Auxiliary Files") 
and copied the Celestrak addresses for noaa.txt and amateur.txt into the 
address line of my browser.  The data of noaa.txt was displayed 
normally, with amateur.txt I got a blank sheet.

There is a copy of amateur.txt in the folder SatPC32_DataBackup (sub 
folder Kepler). The path to that folder is the same as the path of the 
data folder SatPC32, see footline of menu "Satellites". But the copy is 
an older file, of course.

73s, Erich, DK1TB
