NOTAMs for today have finally been suppressed before end of window, so I don't think it will launch to-day!

So the next thing we'll know is new NOTAMs? (Just working out the site's article plan).

No NOTAM yet, but they could possibly show up closer to launch time

Galactic Penguin SST: I can get the first NOTAM (A0044/17) to come up on pilotweb.nas.faa.gov. I can't find the second one (A0046/17). What am I missing? Or perhaps it was deleted from FAA's site as it's a near duplicate of the first one? (bounding area looks to be slightly different, though.)

I attached a screencap of my search criteria used to help debug.

Thanks!

Just try Radius 300 NM.

Everything looking good for this one in three hours time?

I found nothing related to the launch yet so maybe?  ;)

Per sensors on the ground (read shaking houses and windows): Liftoff confirmed.  ;)

Launch success has been confirmed with T-0 at 15:18 UTC.

TJS-2, like TJS-1, is described as a "new generation high capacity experimental communication and broadcasting satellite" in the official release.  ;) The earlier rumors of SAST being the satellite producer is also confirmed (making it their 1st geostationary comsat).

Do we have info on the manufacturer of TJS-1?

CAST was its manufacturer (looking back, it took them a few days after launch to confirm that!).

Speaking of these two sats, TJSW-1 was mentioned in the official release to test Ka-band communications. This time Ka band was not mentioned, but instead it will test "high speed/multi-frequency wide-band data transfer". Hmm.....  ::)
