The operational Iridiums have mean motions close to 14.3422
(Some with slightly higher MM are tumblers)
The ones marked ? are usually spares in lower orbits, and are
not necessarily pointed as accurately as the operational ones.
The 'man' objects may be moring (utless Reporating/Urdating is
delayed) from a post-launch or spare orbit (or even to the latter)
