TleRetriever 3
« on: September 16, 2018, 11:15:44 AM »
Hello OZ

I used TleRetriever many years ago.
Once setup, just 2 or 3 clicks and you get get all needed tle's
Things changed in 2013? when Space-Track changed their web services
Looks like things have changed again in 2018
You now need TleRetriever 3

I quit using everyone's available downloads procedures and created my
 own personal cygwin Linux Bash scripts.
Mostly wget's to Space-Track, NASA, Heavens-Above, Mike McCants for magnitudes and your tumbler database.

Somehow I have prefixed tum and mag to satellite name.
Very complicated for me to understand and dealing with multiple directories.

I don't understand how to make it available to public but
 I hope to simplify it to one directory on my new laptop and hopefully make
 it available to SatelliteTracker members.
