    Mike Waterman has reported three timed positions of USA 129 (96072A / 24680), on
    2004 Jun 11 at 21:45 UTC, running about 0.6 s late relative less than one day
    old elements, which suggests that it has manoeuvred. 
    A small reboost manoeuvre had been expected in a few days. The last one
    increased its orbital period by 5 s.
