Cant find any suitable fix in alldat.tle from sept 19,1999
Ed. The only suspect findsat turns up is fltsatcom 4 rocket,
and with a mean motion of 9 revs/day that doesnt fit stated
angular velocity. There are of course a whole set of
US navy geosats not mentioned in alldat.tle that relay
UHF communications. There longitudes can probably be found
from other sources. note that its actually 5 degrees of
the geo track.
