H-A DOES show classified sats !!
In the "Daily predictions ..." I didn't get any for Helios 1A though -
probably since you can only get predictions for objects that can
(regularly) attain mag 5.0 or brighter.
If you want a specific satellite you can search/select it in the satellite
data page, and from there get predictions regardless of magnitude.
And if I know the catalog # I usually take the shortcut of selecting ISS or
Envisat on the main menu, then change the catalog no in the URL
(25566/27386)
