    I again downloaded orbital data from spacetrack a few minutes ago, and ran guide 8.
    
    I noticed GEOS 13 in the area, and did a check. Turns out my unid was GOES 13.
     
    It was parked a few days ago bases on tle info, but drifting now.
    
    I did a search, and they say on a site
    
    http://www.osd.noaa.gov/GOES/goes_n.htm
    
    After successful post-launch checkout at 90 degrees west longitude by a coordinated Boeing, NASA,
    NOAA, GOES-N integrated Government and Industry team, from the NOAA Satellite Operations Control
    Center (SOCC) in Suitland, Maryland, the satellite will be placed in an on-orbit storage mode so
    that it can more rapidly replace a failure of any of the other operational GOES.
    
    Fooled by a drifting geo sat.
