You might want to go 
http://www2.satellite.eu.org/iridium#listing

and get an update on the link "offical list" for the Iridium 
satellites by Motorola.

Mike McCants', Alan Pickup's and Kelso's elsets have the correct
line 0 info for the Iridium common names. OIG's Iridium elsets 
still have not been revised to reflect the information from
Motorola on or near Dec 17.

Rob Matson's program detected what it thought was an error in the common 
name for 24905/97043C. Iridium 46 was the correct name when the 
program was written some time ago.
