Thanks, Jay ! From my .mag-, .n2l- and .rpt-files it appears that there
has been at least one operating at a time since 1974, in 92.4 min. ,
65 degreee orbits, and that they have been commanded out of that orbit
after their useful life. Very few are in 74 deg. orbits, or higher,
and/or having different dimensions (than 6.0 m dia.)

Does anyone know which have followed the pattern of later years, with 
frequent small orbit adjustments, operating in pairs or triplets in
the same orbital plane, and forced out of orbit after use ?

Here is what I have:
