         Query for major changes to the satellite catalog by catalog number
         international designator (as of January 2000)
    Re-cataloged objects are those which the launch ID number has been
    assigned to a NORAD number designation _different_ than the original.
    Significant name changes are defined as those clearly not same object.
    In other cases, name is similar, but generally more precise in nature.
    Per current OIG/GSFC Satellite Situation Report release of Mar 31, 2000
    April 2000    41/03 & 41/02   0 recatalog items / 13 variant name changes
