    Hello from Japan!
    
    I'm trying to do decay predictions of USA 193 debris by using SatEvo,
    with following steps:
    
      1. Put two elsets of same object with different eporch in the same
         text file.
    
      2. Adjust SatEvo params so that results from two different elset
         are approx. same.
    
    Sample screenshot:

    I've not yet done predictions of all known debris,
    but here are some results:
    
      Common param: Solar flux flag: -F70

    Decay date of #32504 and #32501 match with space-track records.
