    I just plugged in the new elements Ted generated and looked at last night's data
    which both Paul Gabriel and I observed were lower in altitude than the old
    elements had predicted.  Last night's data fall right in line.  Which at this
    point in my progress, still fumbling around with orbit prediction and analysis
    programs,  is perhaps the same as saying "the residuals are small in
    retrospect!"  Congratulations!
    
    Question:  could the difficulty in rationalizing 91082A be related to the
    1-minute late appearance of USA 89 PKM R 22519/92086C (17-d elset) that I
    observed last night?
