    Report time: January 21, 14:30 UTC
    
    1993-068C (#22879)  NAVSTAR 35 PAM-D
    
    SCC'S FINAL REPORT - prepared (very late) Jan 21, 01:04 UTC - shows the decay on:
    20 January, 11:57 UTC +/- 01 minutes (05.6S, 341.5E)
    ascending over the Atlantic.
    
    MPM+REENTRY delivers with the ELSETs 04019.948... - 04020.151...  ans
    SFX 129, ap 022  the decay on:
    20 January, 11:55 UTC +/- 24 minutes (10.05S, 335.07E)
    also northbound over the Atlantic.
    
    Remarks: SCC'S final conclusion is identical with their 02 HOURS BEFORE DECAY
    prediction but this forecast had a decay window of +/- 05 hours !
    The epoch of the last released ELSET was 03:39 UTC, more then 08 hours before
    decay. My and also SCC'S "problem" is that our decay times are roughly one 
    half rev before perigee. A little bit peculiar..... Our 01 DAY BEFORE DECAY
    predictions were very near the finals.
