Actually, you can get TLEs for any object they are available for by 
doing a search of the SATCAT on CelesTrak. For example, if you search on 
Name equal to Yaogan, you'll get a list of all the Yaogan satellites in 
the SATCAT. If you click on the TLE link on the right, you'll get the 
latest TLE for that object, such as this one for YAOGAN 9A:

1 36413U 10009A   14051.08823183 -.00000011  00000-0 12723-3 0  2782
2 36413  63.4043  68.0119 0137921 359.8022   0.2920 13.45090010194747

I hope that helps.

If you expect to be using these on a regular basis, please contact me 
and we can discuss other options that might be available.  - TS

The most impressive observation I've ever made was of one the US 2nd generation NOSS triplets with 7x50 binocs on a very dark sky, their near overhead pass presenting an extremely impressive perspective change in their formation as they passed from horizon to horizon. The 3rd generation US NOSS pairs no longer produce that impressive display.
