    Derek Breit, Scott Campbell, Russell Eberst, Kevin Fetter, Marco Langbroek, Jim Nix, Alberto Rango,
    Greg Roberts, Ian Roberts, Peter Wakelin, Mike Waterman, Brad Young, and I, contributed observations
    used to determine one or more of the following element sets.
    
    Greg's obs of Aug 24 and Peter's of Aug 29, confirm that Mentor 2 is now synchronous near 14.9 W.

    I am not confident of the mean motion of 04034A.

    Additional manoeuvres of AEHF 1 can be expected in the coming days, which are intended to raise its
    perigee to 950 km. Three more, of about the same magnitude as Sunday's, would accomplish that.
    Observers should not be surprised to find it running at least several minutes late, and a bit off
    track.
