    Paul Gabriel obtained two points, which combined with Mike Waterman's three
    points, yield:
    
    USA 129         15.0  3.0  0.0  5.3 v
    1 24680U 96072A   03219.58163194  .00020117  00000-0  21441-3 0    05
    2 24680  97.8451 281.7997 0512737 196.7700 358.9910 14.80354588    05
    
    WRMS residuals = 0.037 deg
    
    The epoch is that of the perigee passage at 2003 Aug 07 at 13:57:33 UTC, the
    approximate time of the re-boost manoeuvre.
    
    I set fixed values of decay rate and argument of perigee, and allowed all
    other elements to vary. I retained all five points at 100 percent weight.
