Try TLEMOP.  It can find TLEs in text files, fix the checksums and write 
them out where you can get them with your predictor.  It can handle a large 
number of elements, (I currently have almost 10,000 in my MASTER.TLE file) 
and it can freshen a short, sweet list from a master file without adding 
unwanted elements.  Among many other advantages, TLEMOP is FAST.

According to the author, Kulbinder Kalirai, TLEMOP1V.ZIP is at
