Vulgar names seldom ring a bell to me, but I do have quicksat.mag
and Satellite Situation Reports.

EchoStar 1 is 1995-073 A, USSPACECOM #23754, Radar Cross Section 334 m2!
(EchoStar 2 is 1996-055 A, USSPACECOM #24313, RCS 15.8 m2)

This is for the possible benefit of other memberss -
I do not have the instruments, nor the location, to observe
geostationary objects (except in unusual circumstances)
