SatEvo decay list #24  (issued 1997 February 1)

Here is anoth batch of SatEvo decay analyses and predictions. 
The "Actual?" decay dates are estimates based on the final 
available elements. Pegasus debris are included only if I predict 
their decay before the end of February; other objects are included 
to the end of March.
