    Mike Mccants has list of failed and spare satellite's
    
    http://users2.ev1.net/~mmccants/tles/iridium.html
    
    Spare one's have a different mean motion, then the operational one's. But spare one's can flae up,
    as long as the atitude of them is correct.
    
    I have seen at least one operational one, that was much less then bright then predicted. Means it
    had a bad attitude at the time.
