Yes, the keplerian elements or TLE is what I'm looking for. I didn't
know that AMSAT assigned the numbers like NO-84 so I'll just have to wait for them to assign a designation to PSAT2.
The Falcon Heavy launch was designated 19-036 in NORAD elements, and there were more than 20 satellites from that one launch (designated by a final letter). Watching when IGates receive the beacons, my wild-ass guess is PSAT2 is 19-036U, but it could be R, S, or T, those are still pretty close together. Here is the latest TLE for 19036U
1 44357U 19036U 19178.41227610 .00060436 00000-0 94415-3 0 9996 2 44357 28.5325 187.1376 0389997 127.0282 350.5130 14.97361557 296
NORAD is releasing new keps for these several times a day as they refine them, so even if this is the right bird expect these to be worthless in a couple days.
