Hi Tom,

The files ought to match... perhaps you aren't looking at the
actual TLE files from the disk? They're 'classfd.tle', 'iridium.tle',
'alldat.tle', in the 'text' directory. The TLEs in them look like

YAHSAT 1A
1 37393U 11016B 11176.79389188 .00000110 00000-0 10000-3 0 686
2 37393 0.0104 339.5778 0002398 140.9562 131.3411 1.00273642 721

Spacetrack TLEs ought to look identical for lines 1 and 2. They
may have the name given with a zero in front of it; Guide will figure
it out if that happens.
