    I downloaded the full list, as I'm interested in all the cataloging, for
    updating my launchlist and the RAE-tables.
    I noticed there was some recataloging and some mistakes.
    
    The fragmentation of 1991-82, DMSP 5D-2 F11:
    I already had a fragment F in my list. Checking the numbers gave that 21802
    1991-82 D was re-assigned to
    1991-62 H (Yohkoh fragment), which decayed 2000/11/15.
    Subsequentely 21825 was changed from 1991-82 E to D, and 21836 from F to E.
    Now the new entries F-BN fitt in.
    
    1988-98:
    Number 21859 was first given to 1971-96 C.
    
    1988-85:
    In January/February 2004 numbers 28152 and 28153 were given to 1988-85 CM
    and CN.
    So number 28276 should be for 1988-85 CP.

    Note the wrong NoradID for 28153: 1988-88 CN in stead of 1988-85 CN.
    1988-88 was Cosmos 1973 with a lifetime of 17.8 days and fragments C-J.
    The last fragment decayed after 190 days.
    
    1991-68:
    In december 1999 the 3th stage from the Cosmos 2157-2162 launch fragmented
    and pieces 1991-68 H-AR were catalogued; with AR being 26030.
    In May 2003 number 27804 was also assigned to 1991-68 AR.

    So what happened to 26030? Its TLE fitts that of the other fragments.
    It is still in the catalogue; has not decayed, not even adminstately.
    
    Thanks to Mike McCants for providing the weekly reports.
