SATCO DX Satellite Chart - Updates 6-19 January

SATCO DX Satellite Chart - Updates 6-19 January

This is a summary of the last two week's updates to the service.
More details can be found at http://www.satcodx.com/ and even
more in the Daily Update mails (only for regular contributors).

The major story was the loss of Telstar 401 (T1) on 11 January!
All services there have been transferred to other satellites.

Telstar 303 will probably replace Telstar 401 at 97 West until
Telstar 5 is launched, which in turn probably will be located
at 97 West. The cause of the loss is still not known.
