    IRIDIUM 84
    1 25530U 98066D   01005.63685683 -.18147655  00000-0 -55546+1 0  1485

    I suggest searching for Iridium 84 using the last elset from Iridium 9 from
    before it was lowered from the operational orbit:
    
    IRIDIUM 84 search where Iridium 9 was     
    1 24838U 97030C   00257.91101238 -.00000166 +00000-0 -66348-4 0 04242
    2 24838 086.3974 027.7289 0001875 080.7395 279.3927 14.34215052169723
    
    *If* is has moved to fill the gap left by the removal of Iridium 9, it should
    be halfway between Iridium 53 and Iridium 10 (latest elsets below):
    
    IRIDIUM 53
    1 25173U 98010E   01010.99953018  .00000487  00000-0  16687-3 0  3547

    IRIDIUM 10

    Let's see if SeeSat members can find it before Spacecom/OIG!
