Also, my keps come from https:\\www.celestrak.com/NORAD/elements/amateur.txt Same for you?
From Channel screen, Install keps 5 times. no problem. radio responds to arrow keys, operation in channel mode ok.
Go to Satellite mode, Predicting runs, scroll up/down the list, all ok.
Return to Channel mode (2 x red button).
install keps. Fail. ie radio function corrupt.
I hope this is a clue, -tom

"install keps. Fail. ie radio function corrupt."
Please confirm you are using a GD-77
Please confirm what operating system you are using.
Have you tried uploading any different computers, i.e potentially there is a problem while uploading the data via USB on the computer you are using.
You appear to be the only person reporting this problem, despite hundreds of people using the satellite functionality every day, including regularly updating their keps file, so its likely that this problem is with either your PC or with your radio.
Yes it is a GD-77. now running firmware 11.19 and I'm using CPS 11.11
The computer is an IBM ThinkPad running Windows 7 Home version. I have been using this Laptop for years to download firmware and code plugs to my GD77.
Operation corrupt means, when I return to the normal operation screen from Stalling, the arrow buttons no longer work, zones shows ?, and it takes a real PWR off (sk1 + pwr off) then on to restore normal operations.
I will work of finding another computer to try and recreate. But given the nature of the issue (i.e. it requires multiple download of keps). I doubt it is the computer, but agree it is more likely to be the radio, or something unique with my codeplug.

I am open to more ideas on how to troubleshoot/isolate is strange behavior.
