Kurt,

Nine day old keps are just fine for most birds.  Since most are in
fairly stable orbits, and are spin stabalized, keps months old will
generally work.  The only exceptions are MIR and the Shuttle; each fires
rockets for orbit correction.  

There are a couple remailers you will find listed on the AMSAT site to
which you may subscribe to receive timely keps for those craft.  When
the shuttle is in orbit, keps are calculated every 4 hours or so.

If I can be of further assistance, send me a private post.

73, Mike
