Further to my comment yesterday the position of 60 degrees East for 
March 2,2016 was based
on the element set used and at the time the satellite was drifting 
westwards. However, as
is likely, the drift rate decreased subsequently so the satellite would 
not have been at 60 deg
east. If Marco is correct with his date as to when the drift had 
stopped- towards end of Feb-
then the satellite is probably at 75 degrees east. I will check next 
time I observe as I have
no reason to doubt Marco's deductions.
