Below is a request by Quirino, 6jzh.  Quirino is an older person using an
older program (probably DOS) called SATSKED, but he is having trouble
updating the Keplerian elements.

If you are familiar with this program could you help Quirino? I am not
familiar with this program and I can't find anyone who has used SATSKED.  I
see a reference on www.amsat.org in the satellite software area under MS-DOS
programs, Pacsat Programs, but I can't download any data from the link.

Quirino's email address is 6jzh at libero.it  He can read amsat-bb but is not
able to send messages???

Please read the following messages that he has sent me on this subject and
email him directly if you can help.
