Tom is on this list.

Edit the SatLookDown1_28\SimpleSatData\SatData\WebDataSources.txt file
and add the following line:

http://www.amsat.org/amsat/ftp/keps/current/nasabare.txt, AMSAT.txt

Then restart the program and click web update. AMSAT keps should then
be available for selection.

AMSAT keps were available by default in the previous version. I'm not
sure why he took it out. With NO-84 and AO-85, and the possibility of
similar situations in the future, we need to make sure that satellite
tracking program developers always include AMSAT keps as an option.
Too many are locked to CelesTrak which does not and cannot include
satellites launched on classified missions.
