For those of you in the right locations, with good equipment...  
Dave Ransom says, in this file:

  ftp://tie.jpl.nasa.gov/pub/dransom/current.data/flash.txt 

that the Space Shuttle crew have deployed a small (about 48 cm, 
19 inch) satellite, PANSAT ("Petite Amateur Naval SATellite") 
that will not be retrieved.  Maybe the 22520 elset below, from 
Alan Pickup's select.tle, is for PANSAT?  I can't get OIG's Web 
site to respond right now.
