  1. It seems that the checksum of the first line of your TLE file is erroneous.
    For me, the line should ends with the number 2 (and not 0).
    Have you added +1 for the – character ? It looks like not ?

  2. hello
    Same problem with your research.txt.
    The checksum of the first line of XW-2 is erroneous.
    The last character of the line must be a “2”, not a zero !
    All the others satellite TLE are good but the XW-2 is not OK.
    Remember how the checksum of is computer :
    – Add all the figures of the lines except the last one which is the checksum
    – Add +1 for the sign “-”
    – Add +2 for the sign “+”
    – Nothing for the other characters (letters …)
    – Keep the unit figure of the result ( x modulo 10).
    – The 69th character of the line must be equal to this figure.
    From where did you get this TLE of XW-2 ?
