    According to
    With the successful arrival in orbit of a new Milstar, this officially 
    completes the planned constellation of spacecraft needed to form an unbroken 
    communications link around the planet. With four satellites evenly separated 
    over the equator, each can exchange signals directly with counterparts to 
    the east and west.
    So we know there is one at 4 degress east, and that one that was going to 90 
    degrees west. So that means there must be an older one at 180 degress west, 
    and the new is going to 90 east.
    Just means I only see the one that was reported to be going to 90 degress 
    west, if I could only find it :(
