    Here is my 2-line representation of the ILAM data kindly posted by Keith Stein:
    
    T-IV 2nd stage   9.8  3.0  0.0  4.8 v .000
    1 70005U          00230.99602650  .00000000  00000-0  00000-0 0    07
    2 70005  67.9990  38.9490 0077642 170.2460 350.6130 14.79921162    03
    
    I note that the parking orbit will have a 578 km perigee instead of the ~420 km
    perigee of previous Lacrosse's launched on Titan IVs. My guess is that this is
    due to the greater payload capacity of the Titan IV-B, being used for the first
    time for a Lacrosse.
    
    The above elements assume lift-off at 23:45 UTC on 17 Aug 2000.
