GPredict, by default, uses Celestrak keps. Since AO-85 was launched as a
secondary payload on a classified mission, only AMSAT is permitted to
receive and re-distribute the keps for the satellite. You will have to use
AMSAT’s keps if you want to track AO-85 in GPredict (of any tracking
program for that matter).
