You will need to do a manual import. I am using Firefox to describe download. 

Go to : http://www.amsat.org/amsat/ftp/keps/current/nasabare.txtDo a Right Click Save Page to a location of your choice. Folder, Desktop, etc.

Save it and then open it. In my case I had to change the font to a smaller font and then resave it for some reason as Nova would not take it. 
Then in Nova go to Keps Elements >Disk File update>Manual update from File. Point to the file. That will import the latest keps from AMSAT.
You will then have to set up AO-85 in your Amateur Group. I assume you know how to do that. It is covered in the Nova Manual. SO-50 should already be in the Nova database. While AO-85 is not. 

Good luck 73, Adrian AA5UK

I asked the question wrong below. How do I get the new sats, like AO-85 & SO-50 into the Amateur Database?
