    This apparently went into effect late yesterday, probably at midnight. When
    I did a routine OIG run at 20:30 UT 11 April 2003, the IGS were there with
    current TLEs.  Just now, at 13:55 UT 12 April 2003, "no elements available."
    11 April is Day 101:

    More sport for the observers, it seems.
