Hi Kev,
you can do the following (besides the methode Jan, PE0SAT, described 
In SatPC32 click menu "?"  >  "Auxiliary Files"  > "Celestrak.SQF" and 
add the following line to the data section:


Save the file and restart SatPC32.

You can now download the Celestrak Kepsfile tle-new (with the UpdateKeps 
button). It will then appeasr in the left list of menu "Satellites". It  
contains the current Keps for the XW2-3 satellites and others.  The 
object 2015-049L is XW2- 3E (= CAS-3E).
I added that satellite to group "Diverse" (menu "Satellites").
In Doppler.SQF add  the following lines for this satellite (names in 
Doppler.SQF and Kepsfile must be the same):
2015-049L,145910.0,0,USB,,0,CW Beacon
Save that file also and restart SatPC32.

This morning I had a QSO over the satellite. The signal is very good. 
Doppler correction by the program worked very well. I heard may signal 
during the whole pass without any frequency correction.
73s, Erich, DK1TB
