    A friend of mine has found a couple of tapes with entries from the old
    days when 28 degree missions were still common.
    At this point, with the early sheding of debris now well established by
    multiple observations, would it still be helpful to submit observations
    of previous normal entries as a baseline for comparison?
    And apologies to Jim and Dale, my first attempt to send this sent it
    to every recipient *other than* SeeSat-L. Doh!
