Dear SeeSaters,

These obs confirm that Lacrosse 2 is in a lower orbit:
9101701267598050320585992  010  12071344  +47252   15 5
9101701267598050320594503  010  12090638  +38250   1 5
9101701267598050321001754  010  12101383  +27082   2  5

I recovered the 84-12 triplet last night.  C and D were 4 secs apart, 
and analysis/more observations are needed to find out which is which. 
There is a slight doubt about the position of F.

Unfortunately 96-29B was probably early on Mike's elset, and so 
passed over while I was observing 84-12.
