    The following preliminary elset is based on observations by Russell Eberst and
    Viktor Voropaev on consecutive revolutions:
    
    1 71905U 09023A   09125.96358836  .00000000  00000-0  00000-0 0    04
    2 71905  99.0362 224.3748 0005015 251.0476 109.0148 14.06186568    07
    
    I held eccentricity constant in the analysis.
    
    The orbit appears to be about 0.4 deg east, and about 30 km lower than I had
    guessed pre-launch.
