Re: Eutelsat Hotbird

Ian/Douglas,

Here are some interesting views and movies of the Hotbirds in orbit from John Locker.

http://www.satcom.freeserve.co.uk/geos.htm

He reports one of them them shows a tendency to drift more than he would expect and has
sent copies of his findings to Eutelsat , and is at this moment he is waiting to hear from their control centre.

He tells me, "The bird moving rather more than the rest has been labelled HB3 , however ,
there is little to support this at present...it could well be HB6....this is
what I need to iron out with Eutelsat".

Regards,

Peter
