    In my earlier post, I offered this search elset for USA 186's Titan IVB 2nd
    stage, (05042B / 28889):
    
    USA 186 r        9.8  3.0  0.0  3.0 v                    162 X 899 km
    1 72002U          05303.88490183  .01176087  00000-0  83506-3 0    01
    2 72002  97.8659   6.1332 0532929 146.2634 217.3750 15.10892763    05
    
    Here is an alternative one, based on a bit lower perigee height, similar to that
    of USA 129's rocket body:
    
                                                             153 X 919 km
    1 72002U          05303.88499991  .00998466  00000-0  43600-3 0    00
    2 72002  97.8673   6.1059 0553894 146.2613 217.5204 15.08985864    06
    
    The uncertainty in the mean motion is perhaps 0.05 rev/d, so by now predictions
    may be off by many minutes.
