    It's been noticed that on the Eutelsat site , the location 21 degs east ,
    has been allocated to W3...as a replacement for the heavilly inclined
    W3 has only recently moved from 7E to 48 east....it took about 6 weeks to
    trundle across the arc.
    Seems strange that this bird should now be slated to move back again.
    The TLEs dont reflect any movement as yet , and of course I'm still ...yes
    still , under this blanket of cloud , so cant check it visually.
    Wonder if anyone has any more info about the proposed move ?
