In an earlier reply to a query I was silly enough to say
that the HOTBIRD satellites were military satellites.
They are not of course, they belong to a commercial
organization Eutelsat. The latest elements from OIG,
put Hotbird 4 some distance from the others, and with
a different mean motion. This of course maybe an error on
SPACECom's part like they exhibited with a member of the 
ASTRA constellation as reported by Bruno Tilgner
