    OTOH we should analyze the reason for a reboost just slightly higher than
    01-44A.
    I checked before Greg's latest obs the possibility of a more circular orbit
    (like 01-44A) but the residuals grew (too much?) - now the chances seem nil.
    
    Current elsets indicate that the reboost was made on Nov.18 - very close to
    the time of Tony's obs
    24680 96 072A   8597 P 20041118122330800 27 25 0546800-530004 48 S+035
    and Mike's resulting elset!
    
    At this time, separation was only 2:24 - very premature - and MM became
    14.725!
    Separation is now 2:12 and will "stay" there for a while.
    2:45 may be reached about Feb.01, when perigee is nowhere near the equator.
    So, I have no ideas on the reason for the early reboost.
