Re: Having issues with Heavensat and McCant's TLEs

I suspect the problem is due to the fact that Mike's current tle for 
#39630 (DMSP F19) includes the orbit height of "836 x 851 km" at the end 
of "line zero". This is unusual for classfd.tle and appears to cause a 
problem with UpdateBulk.exe when I include the download of 
classfd.zip/tle.  I have not tried it myself with Heavensat, but there 
may be a similar issue with that software too.
