Joe and all,

Thanks to have relay the message.

Just want to correct my typos as sometimes to fast to press the send, please read “axing” as Txing and “point” as pointing in the quote text. Spelling check does not help sometimes!

Great that nasabare.txt has been updated and thanks also for that.

As general news the birds is in good health and many tests being cattier out these days, will keep you informed.

"Yesterday , after Space-Track published the TLE for both objects 48867 & 48868 I track both (having 2 tracking stations at the QTH) and is was quite obvious that 48868 was MIR-SAT 1.

Reconfirmed today during 2 passes, having the chance here to be in the same footprint than the command station and that the bird is axing most of the time its easier, the doppler and point match 100% 48868.

The following are the current TLE:

1 48868U 98067SP  21179.69602259  .00013025  00000-0  23878-3 0  9995
2 48868  51.6439 285.7711 0003006 182.6608 177.4342 15.49640979  1031 has been updated
