    Hello James,
    
    Most if not all NOAA weather sats and russian Meteor weather sats were
    launched in a 98 degrees orbit
    Also the ESA ERS 1&2 sats. And there are more.
    The israeli Offeq sats were launched in 143 degrees orbits, due to the
    launch constraints from Israel.
    
    Orbital elements are available at OIG, at http://oig1.gsfc.nasa.gov
    
    Greetings and clear, dark skies

    > In particular are retrograde objects with inclinations of around 137
    degrees and 101 degrees.  A journal article (Bagby J.P., Natural Earth
    Satellites, Journal of the British Interplanetary Society, Vol. 34, #7,pg
    289-293, 1981) suggested that these observed objects were still in orbit in
    1981 but I have found no reference to them since that time.
