    This reminds me of the 84012 satellites in 2002. C, D and F had made a number of
    periodic manoeuvres to maintain their mean motion, until the spring of 2002,
    when C and F manoeuvred, but D did not. None of them have manoeuvred since, and
    they have drifted out of formation, indicating the apparent demise of the group.
    So, if 86014H fails to manoeuvre, we may have seen the last manoeuvres by
    members of that group.
