    From memory, the 1.8 degree inclination of this Ekran is a little higher
    that the value of 1.5 degrees which has often been used for Russian GEO
    satellites previously, implying a slightly longer design life.  
    
    The right ascension value of 260 degrees is a little lower than usual,
    (280 degrees is more typical, and more optimal).  Was this the result of
    the launch time being advanced due to lighting constraints in GEO
    imposed by the eclipse season?
    
    Regards,
