Hello Taft and the group,

I have compared the long-term differences in AOS of near overhead passes
derived from the published TLEs (from days 301, 314, 328, 356) and the
approximate speed differences compared to SSETI EXPRESS are for
UWE-1 +0.8 m/s and for CUBESAT XI-V +0.5 m/s. For 28897 with TLEs from
days 355 and 363 the speed difference evaluates to about -0.4 m/s.
All three speed differences are at least within the same order of magnitude.
 Happy New Year to all,
Dr. Viktor W. Kudielka
