Note that this is Unknown 990907 [90004/99750A], which we've tracked
for quite a while.

Interestingly, I picked up radio signals from 90004 on 2242.5MHz over
the past few days, showing the rapidly decaying orbit. In the past
90004 was heard regularly on 2242.5MHz, but over the past years it has
been absent. Perhaps the lower orbit allows me to pick up the signals.
See here for some plots:
