I beleive he was talking about the boeing 702, that had the angled solar array's.

One's visible from north america,

Anik F1 - 26624

Intelsat 1R - 26608. Currently being moved to a different orbital slot. 

Other one is Galaxy 11 - 26038, which we can't see from north america.

The other 702's with the angled solar array, are in the graveyard orbit

 I remember Ed Cannon had told me
 about some geosynchs that flare at 60 degrees from
 opposition point, but can't remember which, or find the post
 in the archive. Ed, or anyone, have an idea which sats to
 look for?
