I don't normally post long replies to the list but I though some others might 
find this info of some use:

Below are two groups of listed sats requested.  I don't guarantee
that it is totally complete and accurate, but it is what I have listed 
on my tracking program SatPro.
I don't know of any net site that JUST groups those sats you are
interested in.  However, you can find these sats listed along with
a lot of other sats in either Ted
Molczan's (large) or Allen Thomson's (very large) compressed Z files.
Molczan's file can be found at:
http://www.fc.net/~mikem   or
both files can be found at:
ftp://kilroy.jpl.nasa.gov/pub/space/elements/satelem   OR
ftp://ftp.physics.ox.ac.uk/pub/sat

www.fc.net (Mike McCant's site) has the Molczan file in pkzip format
with the associated intrinsic magnitude added.
ftp.physics.ox.ac.uk (Neil Cliffords site) has the
capability of downloading them on the fly decompressed in case
you are not familiar with the Z compressed format.  Be prepared for a
long transfer time if you decompress them on the fly.
You can also find the Z compression program for PCs (probably not
compatable for Macs) on the kilroy site I believe under the elements
subdirectory.  I don't recall if it is listed on Neil's site.
