Re: Space Track Web Site

There are a couple of programs (NASAWASH and SORTNENG come to mind) that
take a TLE input file and strip all header and footer information, giving 
you a pure TLE-data
only file as output.  SORTNENG also lets you set up a "mysats" file to 
output only those satellites
that you are interested in.  I believe that SORTNENG is available on the 
AMSAT downloads page.
