--- PASI 1 at 161E:  http://www.satcodx.com/g29.html
The Agila satellites have just been renamed to PASI.
PASI 1 is obviously the satellite that already is located at
161 East, also called Gorizont 29.

To confuse things even more, the name Agila has now been given
to the Mabuhay consortium!!

--- JCSAT 4 at 150E:  http://www.satcodx.com/jc4.html
JCSAT 4 has now reached 150 East, and will soon replace JCSAT 1.

Intelsat 801 has now reached 64 East, but nearby Intelsat 602 is
still at 63 East. Intelsat 602 will move to 62 East in August, but
that move is scheduled to take about three(!) months to complete.

=== LAUNCHES:  http://www.satcodx.com/launches.html
Dongfanghong 3 was scheduled to launch on 5 May, but is now
planned to be launched on Tuesday 13 May.

The Thor 2 launch is postponed until 17 May or 18 May, since the
engineers needed to review the unusual fuel consumption on a flight
earlier this week.
Thor 2 will launch on 17 May if Space Shuttle Atlantis STS 84
launches on 15 May, otherwise on 18 May.
Launch windows for 17 May:
17 May 22.39-23.23 UTC (=18 May 00.39-01.23 CET)
