The keps files do not include any frequency information. You will need to manually add the satellties to your Doppler.sqf file. AMSAT-UK maintains a good database of Doppler.sqf files and entries here https://amsat-uk.org/satellites/satpc32-doppler-sqf-file/
CAS-4A and CAS-4B are active and available for amateur use. For whatever reason, they were not given the "Hope" prefix (Xiwang / XW) as other Chinese satellites have been, nor were OSCAR numbers requested, so they continue to be referred to as CAS-4A and CAS-4B.

Pardon the flood of newbie questions.
I’m trying to add CAS-4A and CAS-4B to my list of active satellites in SatPC32. When I add them from the NASA.ALL keeps, the file doesn’t include any frequency information for the CAT radio control.
Understand that satellites are renamed (sometimes) when they achieve operational status. For example, XW-2A used to be called CAS-3A.
What am I doing wrong? Are both CAS-4A and CAS-4B active and available for amateur use?
