    Please be aware of the rule prohibiting the posting of USSTRATCOM TLEs to SeeSat-L:
    "Do Not Post Elements Originating from Space Track
    When posting to SeeSat-L, you must comply with's user agreement, by not posting elements or other data,
    e.g. RCS values, that originated from that site. This SeeSat-L rule also includes elements of unclassified objects
    obtained from NASA/OIG or third parties - even those who have Space Track's permission to distribute elements, since it
    is almost impossible to later prove how the data was sourced. This applies also to historical elements, since most of
    those now are also available from
    Where past practice was to include an elset of an unclassified object to substantiate an argument, now it is best to
    state only its name, international designator, catalogue number and perhaps the epoch or serial number of the elset in
    question, and leave it to interested readers to obtain the actual elset, or include a link to a source."
