Notes:
1) 25744 - again 16-17 secs late and varying in magnitude.  Looked to
   be a large object, using:

New rough element:
USA 144 B I,CAPW,E,W,M,N STAPASOBS=001,001,002 MS=  0.0005, 0.0003
1 25744U 99028  A 99159.09929502 +.00084000 +00000+0 +00000+0 6 00020

2) 49" early using:
Milstar 3       15.0  4.5  4.5  3.8 d
1 25724U 99023  A 99157.21149306  .00000000  00000-0  00000-0 0    03

3)UnId-Ran one pass of alldat.tle and nothing close, but thats been fallible
in the past.  I suspected 99142 because the trajectory was parallel to the 
D & E search elsets, as well as the later Lacrosse 2 pass.
