Of these, no elements are available from OIG for #19461 = 88- 78 B
and #23786 = 96- 8 C.

#23073 = 89- 89 BU probably decayed within a few days of 1996 April 25, 
though the last published elset was dated April 12.

#23664 = 95- 45 H decayed on 1995 September 2.

All the other objects are in orbit - here are their latest elsets:

I suspect that both #8547 and #22110 may decay next March or April, 
give or take, while #21794 and #23674 (despite its 16+ revs/day) 
may decay this September.
