[amsat-bb] General satellite status?

Does anyone have a link or other resource regarding the operational 
status of non amateur satellites in general? I'm interested in how the 
current solar activity is affecting the space environment. I've got 
links to the standard SOHO measurements, but I was wondering if there 
was information such as if satellites are being put into intentional 
spins because of charge buildup, or if any have had glitches, etc.



Somewhat related questions: Are magnetorquers useable when there is a 
geomagnetic storm? Do the changes in symmetry of the magnetic field 
during a storm disrupt the orbits of satellites containing ferrous or 
magnetic materials by exerting force on them?
