I'm not an orbital expert but I think if you setup these keps in NOVA
...

that should give you plenty of examples.

It strikes me that it would be fun to observe a test Molniya Orbit on
the old Nova Screen.... Would one of you orbital gentlemen please advise
us, on the -bb, with a set of keps for such an orbit, or is just
changing the inclination of the A040 keps, to say 63.00 degrees,
sufficient. The first obvious change for me would be the solid pine
woods to the north of my dish. Move dish - or - cut down woods..
