    Optus B1 has been or is being repositioned and this disrupted coverage for 
    many customers on a major television network here - it seems this was the 
    sequence rather than the repositioning being made necessary because of loss 
    of signal.
    
    Reports on this are quite confusing. One possible way of interpreting them 
    is that repositioning has taken place but that re-alignment  of the 
    satellite antennas etc towards the target area was not possible because the 
    solar cells were drained by the solar eclipse - the latter hardly being an 
    unforeseen event!
