    Who are you calling "amateur"? :-)
    The article is pretty much right within the constraints of space,
    although one could amplify the comments quite a bit ... and I should
    note that although the observations of these satellites by SeeSat-L
    members are incredibly valuable,the analysis referred to in the article
    doesn't directly make use of them - the inadequacies of the US filings
    with the UN are apparent directly from the documents themselves combined
    with internal consistency , common sense, and a little basic knowledge
    about the space program. The SeeSat-L info, of course, lets us know what
    the numbers in the filings SHOULD have been!
     Glad you enjoyed it...
