An update on the satellite IDs.
Still no IDs are available for the satellites launched from the ISS
(except TechEdSat 3P) and the Minotaur.
Several IDs have been published for the objects from the Dnepr launch
but many need to be confirmed. Still not all TLEs are released.
AMSAT-OSCAR 73, ZACube 1 and HiNCube were launched from the same ISIPOD.
As they initially were close together, the JSpOC decided to release only
one TLE set for this cluster under object number 39417 (2013-066B). Now
the distances between these satellites are slowly increasing. So the
question is which satellite is object 39417.
Detailed doppler measurements show that ZACube 1 is now about 25 s early
compared to the TLE for object 39417, while OSCAR 73 is about 11 s
early. This seems to indicate that object 39417 is actually HiNCube.
Hopefully TLEs for OSCAR 73 and ZACube 1 will be published soon.
