    An analyst I respect a lot has told me that the number of cataloged TLEs posted
    by space-track has decreased by 40% since November (since roughly when those
    six satellites, including the CLUSTER II satellites, were lost).  I'm only able
    to check a few satellites at a time and was wondering if anyone had also noticed
    this? Thanks!
