    Viktor Voropaev and Björn Gimle have reported USA 186 late today, on consecutive
    revolutions:

    The most likely manoeuvre times appear to be today (2009 Apr 09), near the
    perigee passages of 09:36:10, 11:13:35 UTC or 12:51:00 UTC.
    
    Fitting elements to a synthetic position at perigee and Viktor's point, yields
    the following:
    
    09:36:10 UTC manoeuvre
    1 70001U          09099.73399953  .00008786  00000-0  83492-4 0    05
    2 70001  97.8950 163.7241 0536733  25.6744 337.0096 14.77239343    08
    
    11:13:35 UTC manoeuvre
    1 70002U          09099.73400019  .00008793  00000-0  83492-4 0    00
    2 70002  97.8950 163.7241 0537844  25.6744 337.0147 14.77013215    08
    
    12:51:00 UTC manoeuvre
    1 70003U          09099.73400129  .00008805  00000-0  83492-4 0    07
    2 70003  97.8950 163.7241 0539703  25.6744 337.0232 14.76634830    01
    
    I held inclination, argument of perigee and rate decay constant, which are
    derived from the pre-manoeuvre elements:
    
    1 28888U 05042A   09098.85381594  .00008918  00000-0  83492-4 0    03
    2 28888  97.8950 162.8570 0533846  28.5367 334.3991 14.78121565    05
