Oopps. Sorry got my output files mixed up. I just sent out the corresponding
2-Line file, so delete the AMSAT verbose file I sent last night.
I don't think I have made that error before. Everyday a new day!
Also I just read a note (after sending out the 2-line file) from Nico
Janssen, PA0DLO, indicating that Object J is in fact Pratham. I will make
that change next week, but until then, you should use Object J (NORAD Cat ID
41791) TLEs for Pratham. The objects are so close it probably won't make
much difference either way for mid pass reception. It will take a few weeks
to sort out who is who for the rest.
Also Nico indicates that there is a high certainty that ScatSat is OBJECT H
(NORAD Cat ID 41790).
Thanks Nico for your greatly appreciated help.
NuSat-1/LUSEX has now been designated LO-87. Therefore, NUSat-1/LUSEX (NORAD
CAT ID 41557) will now be listed in the KEPs as LO-87.
On September 26, 2016 at 0342 GMT, Indian ISRO PSLV-C35 launched the
AlSat-1N and Pratham satellites carrying amateur radio payloads (along with
eight other objects). See AMSAT News Service Bulletin ANS-255 (9-11-2016)
for info on Pratham. Also see following URLs for more info.

The following "cloud" of ten satellites has been added to this week's KEP
distribution. Note that it will take a while to sort out who is who. The
Indian Pratham Team believes that NORAD Cat ID 41785 is the Pratham
satellite, so we will call object 41785, satellite Pratham, for now. The
following objects have been added to this week's KEP distribution.
OBJECT A - NORAD CAT ID 41783
OBJECT B - NORAD CAT ID 41784
Pratham (OBJECT C) - NORAD CAT ID 41785 (See above explanation)
OBJECT D - NORAD CAT ID 41786
OBJECT E - NORAD CAT ID 41787
OBJECT F - NORAD CAT ID 41788
OBJECT G - NORAD CAT ID 41789
OBJECT H - NORAD CAT ID 41790
OBJECT J - NORAD CAT ID 41791
OBJECT K - NORAD CAT ID 41792
