After Mike M. timed 89-53C (NORAD 20229) for some cycles, he handed 
his stopwatch to me.  It must be an easy one, because my results came 
out in substantial agreement with his!  (He could tell you about the 
cases in which my splits appear to be totally random!  Or clicked 
"stop" instead of "split" ... or clicked splits while having failed 
to start the stopwatch....)  

The observation was at 3:17 UT, 5 August 1996 (location, 30.315 north, 
97.866 west).  Six cycles, 135.6 seconds (+/- 2 seconds) = 22.6 seconds 
per rotation period.  

I forgot to note the magnitude variations.
