    I was looking at this sat
    
    Unknown 981016   4.0  0.0  0.0  5.5 d
    1 90002U 98789A   03212.34957421 0.00000000  00000-0  00000-0 0    08
    2 90002  14.7674 347.3190 0007004 296.5638  63.4405  0.99817440    03
    
    And at data for the FLTSATCOM satellites.
    
    This is going to sound crazy but
    
    The oig gives for FLTSATCOM 1
    
    IntID/Name   CatNo Source period   Incl Apogee Perigee      RCS
    ------------ ----- ------ ------ ------ ------ ------- --------
    
    1978-016A    10669 US     1454.4   14.8  36174   36115   2.5000
    OPS 6391 (FLTSATCOM 1)    Launched (1978/02/09) 
    
    It seems that the inclination of Unknown 981016 is close to what the oig gives for FLTSATCOM 1.
    
    So I sometimes wonder if it's the same satellite. 
    
    Told you it was going to sound crazy.
