    NOTES:
    -------
    (1) The "battle" continues - this has become torture - seems to
        never end!  However I should be completed tomorrow as only
        four more fields to process - unfortunately some fields
        can contain as many as 15 or more satellites so a slow process
        and rather demanding on old eyes.
    
    (2) Two more unknowns - relatively faint - about mag +12 and seem
        to be low inclination at/near geostationary/geosynchronous
        altitudes. Steady.
    
    Enough for the moment
    Cheers
    Greg
