Morning Alberto (and readers)

Glad you got OFEQ 9.  My earlier report of possibly observing
OFEQ 5 during a plane scan looks incorrect as to identity and
it was probably OFEQ 7 which I observed again on the 1st March.

OFEQ 10 was NOT seen.  The problem at the moment is that
OFEQ 7 and OFEQ 10 are almost in the same orbit plane so
it is possible to confuse which is which .

As regards OFEQ 5 I think we can safely say that this satellite
has decayed. It had a low perigee and I now doubt that it
would have lasted till now without being under control.
I will be reporting OFEQ 7 later today.
