As far as I’m aware there are no “sections” of the file, it is simply just a CSV with a different file extension. There is no way to differentiate between alive and dead. And speaking of dead, it’s dead simple to edit the file. With so many different opinions, like everything else, on how it should be done it’s easier if people just generate what fits their need. A satellite no longer is relevant to you, delete the line. Something new in orbit, add a line. We have the technology https://www.amsat.org/doppler-sqf-line-generator/
