    Report time 15:00 GMT
    
    1993 - 054C  NAVSTAR 34 (RB) PAM - D
    
    SPACE TRACKS final report  - issued Jan 18, 05:04 GMT - reported
    the decay on:
    Jan 18, 03:40 GMT +/-7 minutes ascending (21.2N, 319.8E) over the 
    Mid - Atlantic after a long apex cross passing over the United States.
    
    Now look to the problem:
    
    MPM + Reentry (V 2.1) shows with the ELSETs 07017.667... - 07018.081...
    (SFX 080, ap 015) the decay on
    Jan 18, 04:32 UTC +/- 03 minutes (04.92S, 153.72E) over the
    Indonesian
    archipelago.
    Another different sophisticated method (based on King - Hele's program
    on
    orbit evolution) shows also a decay around 05:00 UTC.
    
    
    The last perigee passes are:
    
    02:58:16 GMT and 04:26:55 GNT
    
    The last apogee passes are:
    
    02:15:17 GMT  and 03:43:33 GMT
    
    Looking on these data I am somewhat skeptics about SPACE TRACKs FINAL
    REPORT.
