    76038D was 129.6 s late, and about 0.3 deg off-track, relative 37 d old

    I did not have good reference stars for 76038D, so positional accuracy is in
    greater than normal doubt. 
    
    My 03054A and C obs seem somewhat inconsistent in accuracy. As always, the orbit
    analysis will be the final arbiter of accuracy.
