Angie, I'm glad you asked about this. I knew the satellite wasn't still operational - don't know if it's still orbiting - but looked to see the date (1981). And noted that it was launched on the 17th of May, not the 11th. I obviously misread my notes at one point and then copied the error from year to year.
