    CNBC reported today that 2 Iridium satellites have failed
recently and Iridium Corp may not be able to make
their projected Sept 23 startup of their satellite communications
network.  Maybe this is why some listees are having
problems viewing some sats, particularly Iridium 71.

    They did not specify which sats had failed,
but that it had occurred quite recently.
