#MUOS 1 is barnstorming MUOS 2 and 5 at the moment as it drifts eastward to parts unknown... Where MUOS3 is going is a mystery and why it's going anywhere is a greater mystery. It produced a nice family frequency plot though! ImageImage
As I noted in the tweet below, MUOS 1 up and left a couple of UFO comms sat out over the Pacific to make its move.
The MUOS Constellation was planned initially as noted in the image below. Image

#MUOS1 is on the move as noted by @astrobrock. I aimed the S-band dish low to my western horizon and noted her in 'storage mode' as can be seen by the 600 second period of its carrier. During MUOS5's trip to GEO we correlated this to optical characteristics of s/c rotation rate. ImageImage
#MUOS are based on the Boeing A2100 satellite bus. We have seen others of this type perform similarly. SDS-3, GOES etc. We first got a good look during the near miss with #MUOS5. MUOS5 is effectively stranded at ~106W.…
