Elsets for this are in my select.tle file, available via my SatEvo WWW
page. You'll also find them in Mike McCants' mccants.tle and molczan.tle
files and, of course, direct from OIG.

The latest is:

QukSct Titan2 r  7.0  2.5  0.0  5.0 d   12       810 x 255 km
1 25790U 99034B   99186.51684696  .00136470  58020-5  96826-3 0   295

I expect this to decay about 2000 January.
