This was derived by taking an early elset from the 18 Jun 97 Proton
launch and adjusting the RAAN with ADJ2LINE.   Checksum was
corrected with ELEMAN and position / track verified with STSPLUS.

The epoch is not correct for the launch time but the elset seems to
produce accurate tracks for the expected launch time.
