I forgot to mention another change I made:
4) I changed the reading of file inttles.tle, which is now in 3-line format (previously was in 2-line format)

I have just uploaded the new version of BulkUpdater at the usual page:
http://www.satflare.com/bulkupdater.html
I had to fix 3 problems to get it work again:
1) I added the flag --no-check-certificate to wget in order to avoid the certificate issue2) I removed the download of intcogo file from McCant's site3) I increased the size of the structure that accommodates satellite names (Line 0) in orderto cope with long names (see the point highlighted by Alan about #39630 DMSP F19 that
appends a right aligned string indicating the orbit height).
Maybe this can be useful to fix the download problem in other software.
Regards,Simone

The problem may be a little more subtle: as Alan pointed out, the download fails also with UpdateBulk, so I've investigated the matter.When downloading any of these files from prismnet server with wget, I get a redirect error (302) which redirects over https protocol.Wget as expected requests again the files over https but fails to verify the certificate, reporting that prismnet is using a self signed certificate.
I solved this problem telling wget not to check the certificate by means of the flag:
--no-check-certificate
I will release soon an update of UpdateBulk.exe (I will also remove the download of intcogo file).

    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.

      Hi Obin,
      

      
      I don't know how Heavensat
        exactly manages the download from McCant's site, but the problem
        might be connected 
      with the availability of all
        the classfd files. At least 3 archives were usually available:
      

      
      http://www.prismnet.com/~mmccants/tles/classfd.zip

      
      http://www.prismnet.com/~mmccants/tles/inttles.zip

      
      http://www.prismnet.com/~mmccants/tles/intcogo.zip

      
      

      
      The last one appears
        unavailable now, so the download procedure might fail there.
      

      
      Regards,
      Simone

        Hello,

           

          I am using Heavensat 2.4.1 and while trying to download Mike
          McCant's TLEs the message "Invalid Zip File" pops up. Then the
          message "Download failed... failed to save file or bad data
          format" appears regardless of what TLE I am using. Is anyone
          else seeing this error with Heavensat? I tried the files
          directly and they appear normal.

           

          Thanks in advance for any troubleshooting tips.

           

          Obin
