    MPm delivers with the ELSETs 00047.525 - 00048.383... the decay on
                          18 February, 15:28 UTC +/- 03 hours (39.5S, 207.0E)
    on a descending pass over the South Pacific.
    Calculations with another atmospheric model- Jacchia 71 - (lower density at the 
    same altitude) shows the decay exactly one hour later (16:28 UTC, 39.7N, 
    109.0E on a descending pass over China). 
    The relatively small time difference between the two data sets shows that we are
    now at the right decay time region.
