After many, many, hours, I've made some changes to SSR 11/96.
1st, can someone suggest how to save some time in the future?  I wanted to
sort by Int. Designation rather than SpaceCommand Catalog #.  Is there some
simple quick way to sort date, #, and letter?   A-Z have to come before AA-AZ. 
I have DOS, Windows, QSORT, WordPerfect and a spreadsheet.



Anyway, I have merged in-orbit/decayed sats and sorted by launch order.

I also have another SSR with distances in Miles rather than km.

Either of them available on request.


This from 11/96 SSR.   Isn't the perigee kind of low?           |

This recently cataloged object has 2 different catalog #s.  Which is right?
