    The short answer is no.
    It has been several years since any of the Trumpets were knowingly tracked by
    hobbyists. In recent times, hobbyists have tracked and determined the orbits of
    several objects in Molniya and Geosynch orbits, which may include a few SIGINTs,
    but we do not know which ones they are. Some objects likely are upper stage
    rocket bodies.
