Thanks to Kevin I probably saw Telstar 19V last night.

I was ending my observing after seeing the three Echostars
(#41592, 39008 and 36792).

#37602 comes by about five minutes later and the objects
#32293 and #41382 9-10 minutes after #37602.

Last night I was timing passage of these objects and I see
two objects co-located aligned roughly north-south.

Continue observing until #32293 and #41382 are likely seen
then I check the timings against Skymap plotted positions
and the double object is at the position of #37602 (Telstar 14R).

One of those should be Telstar 19V and I would guess the
brighter of the two.

The Telstar 19V elset with epoch 18218.2616  appears to be invalid.

The close three objects that include Amazonas 2 and 5 (#35942
and #42934)is still visible.   I am not sure why Skymap does
not plot the UNID third object.
