Abstract : The paper lists the mean Kepler elements, determined from doppler measurements from the TRANET system, for the satellite GEOS-A (1965-89A) from its launch on November 6, 1965 through November 29, 1966. Because of the small precession rate, the table does not span a full period of the precession of perigee. (Author)
