    NOTES:
    ----------
    (1) Main purpose of session was to try and locate some high altitude
        sats that needed observing as well as observe AEHF1 R.
    
    (2) Reasonably bright unknown seen - about magnitude +8 - no obvious
        match. Trace steady so little or no variation
    
    (3) Did quite a search for Ekran 5 - not seen, and for DSP F20 cover -
        also negative.
    
    (4) Also looked for MITEX 2 #29241 - not seen so query observation of a few
        days back ?    Drfiting westward according to elements
    
    (5) DSCS 3-08 (#22915) also scanned for - nil obvious
    
    Cheers
    Greg
