Try www.amsat.org

James Miller (g3ruh@amsat.org) in Cambridge, England was the primary AO-13 
controller and posted daily updates on the satellite's status. 

His data should be there...or  at least there might be pointers to his website. 

The data *is* out there...

GL!

OIG data base says 88051A/ 19216/ Oscar 13 decayed on Dec 6, 1996.
     
If you go to 
     
ftp://kilroy.jpl.nasa.gov/pub/space/elements/satelem/el-1996/el961201.Z
     
you should find it in the Allen Thomson archive (along with 4000 others). 
If you are not familiar with Z compression, you can find some help at 
     
http://www.satellite.eu.org/tletools.html
     
regarding UNIX compression  and a DOS program gzip.exe to decompress 
them.
