    Mike McCants, Greg Roberts, Brad Young, and Peter Wakelin have observed AEHF 1 over the past week.
    Mike determined the following element set, using Greg and Peter's observations of the night of Nov
    23 UTC:
    
    AEHF 1                                                7031 X 50396 km
    1 36868U 10039A   10327.84020187  .00000000  00000-0  00000-0 0    00
    2 36868  12.6659 289.5828 6178820 211.4152 299.7200  1.32082500    02
    
    The spacecraft manoeuvres for 10 to 12 hours per revolution, making it a challenge to track. Mike
    has been issuing predicted elements, based on the observed evolution of the orbit, which have
    greatly assisted observers to keep up with it.
