Observed six geosynch satellites tonight to get data for the 
SDP4 issue.  Used Mike McCants ALLDAT file from 25 Oct 97
(the current one on his web site)

Name   NORAD  Time(UT)    RA (HH:MM.M)  Dec (DD:MM) (J2000)
ACTS   22796  03:14:03.3   23:14.4       -06:11
DBS 2  23192  03:17:28.7   23:14.6       -06:06
DBS 3  23598  03:17:57.5   23:14.6       -06:06
ASC 2  21227  03:18:18.2   23:14.6       -06:06
DBS 1  22930  03:18:31.5   23:14.6       -06:06
UNID   xxxxx  03:19:35.1   23:14.6       -06:06

The declination was not exactly the same (-06:06).   Will have
to get a better obs to 0.2 arcmin in Dec if required.  Note the
non DBS satellite  (ASC 2)  stuck between the DBS satellites.
Must belong to the same folks.

Could not ID the UNID geosynch in any of my elsets.   If anyone
else can, please advise.
