I agree with Bill's assessment.

In fact, the latest set of Keps I have for these two objects are shown
below. I had already run these through my tracking program and found
that Object 26610 fits the bill.

At this stage, my money would be on STRV 1C being AO-40. But then, I've
lost money on the Melbourne Cup before now.   :-)

Seriously, it ties in with AOS/LOS, and most importantly the MA(Phase)
appears to be correct. Possibly someone else could check this out.
