    NOTES:
    --------
    (1) Not sure which is PAN (#35815) and which is YAHSAT 1A (#37393).
    
    (2) The unknown reported yesterday appears to be related to the
        launch of six GLOBALSTARS  (11-080 - possibly object 11-080F)
        Many thanks to Mike McCants for this.
    
    Cheers
    Greg
