Another feature that is very handy in Orbitron is the ability to select and use more that one element set by holding Crtl down while selecting sets of elements.  Also I have added the NASALL set from the Amsat page to my list.  You won't find AO-85 in the amateur or cubesat set so the NASA set fixes that issue.
