Maybe AO-40 *IS* NORAD's current object # 26610



Try plugging these keps in:

STRV 1C
1 26610U 00072C   00337.02909023 -.00000077  00000-0  00000+0 0    98
2 26610   6.3783 242.3238 7347480 186.3603 152.6817  2.03015472   327

AO-40
1 26609U 00072B   00328.20006944  .00000001  00000-0  12451-4 0    45
2 26609   6.4214 245.2971 7351666 180.5141 180.0042  2.03021569   166


They do seem to match much, much better than what NORAD is posting for 
object number 26609.  And the time is shifted just a bit from the set #4 
keps, and in the right direction.  Signals here are so poor that I'm not a 
good judge for precise AOS/LOS comparisons, but they seem like a good fit.


I think our friend (I forget his name/call..sorry!!) that posted this the 
other day is really on to something.
