My program call 'buildsel C:\TLE\iridium.tle C:\TLE\iridium.sel' will produce the list of numbers 
'applysel C:\TLE\el980311 C:\TLE\iridium.sel C:\TLE\march.tle' (change the path\filenames as appropriate)
will build the elset file for you.

brun40.exe must be in your DOS PATH, or current directory.
All programs are on my home page/programs/ibmpc.

PS: Happy New pseudo-Millennium!
PS2: Some days ago I observed USSPACECOM 00047 - 1960 eta 3.
Nothing worth reporting - a very stable orbit, and not difficult. But it is the oldest object still in orbit that I have been able to observe.(I did see two or three Sputnik objects, and possibly an older Discoverer)
