24792/97-020A/IRIDIUM 8 according to Satellite Situation Report for June.

Go to http://www2.plasma.mpe-garching.mpg.de/sat/tletools.html
and find sites (links) that provide sat sit reports. Mike McCants *may* 
archive the weekly recently launched/decayed objects. I can't access his 
site right now verify.
