    USA 129 was found again yesterday, but not by me, after having been "lost"
    since Jan.27. It was then about 51 s late wrt. a search elset I issued to
    some interested members. The error increased to 76 s today, when I was able
    to see it.
    This means my assumed MM should be decreased by 0.004, and the small orbit
    raise was performed four days later than I assumed, ie. around Jan.31. I
    also added 0.6 deg. to RAAN
    
    No doubt better orbits will be presented shortly.

    To analysts: Note the varying accuracies - in fact the first point is
    probably useless.
