When possible, it would be interesting to have some kind of analysis about the published NOTAM. Thanks!

I wonder if this NOTAM was related to the first WU-14 hypersonic missile test conducted on January 9 as reported in the Guardian

You mean that "test" that probably wasn't anything to do with ASAT except to sinophobes?

Well the article underlines that the rocket was very probably launched from a TEL with an apogee close to GEO, make what you will of that.

Mystery satellite launch out of Jiuquan on March 31!? (and would have been during the final countdown of Dragon CRS-3 had the radar fire did not happen!  :o)

These drop zones are the same as those for Shi Jian 11-05 launched with CZ-2C on July 15, 2013; so it does look like a new launch with CZ-2C from Jiuquan on March 31

The NOTAMed area seems to be aligned with Taiyuan Space launch Center. Could correspond to missile activity.
