    PPAS and further dates later. Having somewhat slaked my thirst for DSO's I started sweeping for more classified objects this night.
    
    Used site number 8888 = 31.2773 S, 149.2790 E
    Equipment was typically 18" f/4.2 Dobsonian reflector at 46x or 87x manual sweeping by star hop. I did attempt to use Argo Navis on another 18" and even a 25" scope, with poor results. UT is from the Australian Speaking Clock and my usual Robic stopwatch.

    Notes:
    Still trying to figure out 17181 - will report reductions later or no match.
    26715 very late and near DirecTV2 23192. First 3 points were a faint steady satellite and fairly match a very late Milstar, but then I had moved the scope to keep up with drift and seem to have happened on 23192, which was slowly variable at 11->12 A. Questionable.
    
    Sweeps with no results (A = allsat.tle choice of earliest prediction, C= classfd.tle):
    26356 A->C spread
    
    23467 near start of A->C
    10016 while it should've passed 27516
    4376 <A->C spread
    9856 A->C spread
    37232 near start of A->C
