Likely this launch is going to be from TSLC, not JSLC. That's all I can tell.

Are they talking about a possible suborbital launch from Jiuquan?

No, I have no ideas whether there will be a suborbital from Jiuquan.

Likely this will be deferred to 2016.

Do you have any source for this?

Surprise launch!

Ok, so I need some help as Rui will be in bed! ;D

It's a Yaogan Weixing satellite, right? I see via the translation the rocket and launch site, but can we work out a UTC T-0 for 5:24 local time?

Long March 4C, right - and from which launch site? Oh and we'll need a T-0.

LC9, 21:24 UT.

Awesome, I edited my post as I see some details now, but thanks for the UTC and pad! :)

Cataloged as 41038 in a 615 x 619 km x 97.8 deg sunsync orbit with 0430 local time node.
Rocket stage in 483 x 621 km.

This is the same profile as the Jianbing-5 radar satellites (Yaogan 1, 3, 10 )
although they all had 0600 local time nodes. I think this is a radar satellite, most likely
another JB-5 or a successor generation.

Oh, and the Xinhua link seems to confirm that not only the LV (CZ-4C) but also the payload is a SAST (Shanghai) project, like the earlier JB-5 and JB-7 radar sats

Urghhhh I knew from rumors that there would be a launch from that very pad in late November (with someone even guessing the payload as a radar sat something like what launched hours ago!), but the pre-launch confirmation never came.  :(

Cataloged as 41038 in a 615 x 619 km x 97.8 deg sunsync orbit with 0430 local time node.
Rocket stage in 483 x 621 km.

This link actually claims the satellite has 0.5 m resolution and an imaging swap width 6 times of its predecessors.  ;)

Yes, although that could refer to either an optical or a radar sat.
 
(btw, it's  "swath width", not "swap width" )

0.5 m resolution,a inpressive specification!
