    Hi Bill and list,
    
    Pictorally, there are 2 main configurations for solar arrays.
    The Hubble-like configuration:
    
    ***       ***
    * *       * *
    * *  SSS  * *
    * *--S S--* *
    * *  SSS  * *
    * *       * *
    ***       ***
    
    and the type used on Superbird A and indeed most GEO birds:
    
    **************  SSS  **************
    *            *--S S--*            *
    **************  SSS  **************
    
    Perhaps we could simply call these "H"-type and "I"-type solar
    arrays.   --Rob
