    Greetings from those of us who practice the "dark art" of radio observing.
    
    Ivan Artner of Hungary and myself (in the UK) have been tracking an object
    in highly eccentric orbit. Paul Marsh (also UK) made a series of detailed
    Doppler measurements on one pass and we have been able to derive possible
    elset:
    
    1 80000U 05000A   05278.68515000  .00000000  00000-0  00000-0 0  0001
    2 80000  63.4000 172.0000 7108823 279.5000 180.0000  2.00599011 00001
    
    It does not seem to fit any object listed by SpaceTrack. The obvious
    question is whether any unlisted visual objects might fit the bill.
    
    Regards
    Bob Christy
