I just scanned their web page and noted a 252 n.mi. parking
orbit.  In January, I was using  approx 356 n.mi.   Whether
this is due to the increase from 3-5 satellites or is a typo
I don't know at this point.

Below is an elset assuming a 252 n.mi park orbit.  The previous
elset is approx 356 n.mi.
