Yes (although it's active 17:00 - 21:00 UTC, August 11-14).

BTW you can check it from here by searching through "Free Text" (e.g. P3120/23, Q1638/23) and see if it's there. If not, you can check via "Archive Search", select the date of posting (e.g. 2023-06-30) and Flight Information Region (e.g. RJJJ) and see if it's cancelled or not.

Since the "LTDC" series current has only 2 known satellites - LTDC-1A & B = L-SAR-01A & B, the 2 L-band SAR satellites launched early 2022, I wonder if LTDC-4A is = "20 m resolution high orbit SAR satellite" mentioned in CASC's Bluebook of China Aerospace Science and Technology Activities 2022, released this January. It certainly fits the literal meaning of "LTDC" - "Land Probing".

You're right, I just confused UTC and local time.

XICHANG, Aug. 13 (Xinhua) -- China on early Sunday sent a new satellite into space from the Xichang Satellite Launch Center in southwest China's Sichuan Province.
The satellite, L-SAR4 01, was launched at 1:26 a.m. (Beijing Time) by a Long March-3B carrier rocket, and entered its planned orbit successfully.
The satellite will be mainly used to provide remote sensing information services.
The launch was the 483rd flight mission of the Long March carrier rocket series.

The launch did occur at 17:26 UTC and was successful, including the given payload name! We are still waiting for what the satellite really does.

我国成功发射陆地探测四号01星

my country successfully launches Land Probe No. 4 01 satellite

Land Probe 4-01 satellite is a remote sensing scientific research satellite in the "National Civil Space Infrastructure Medium and Long-term Development Plan (2015-2025)". The satellite operates in an inclined geosynchronous orbit, and the synthetic aperture radar payload carried has the advantages of high resolution, wide coverage, multi-mode, and light weight. Compared with low-orbit satellites and optical satellites, this satellite combines the advantages of short high-orbit observation revisit period and wide imaging width with the advantages of microwave observation that are not limited by climate (all-weather) and light (all-day) , can improve the identification accuracy and efficiency of disaster abnormal change information, and enhance the comprehensive prevention and control capabilities of natural disasters. After the satellite is launched into orbit, it will enrich the means of observation in key areas of our country. It will be able to conduct all-weather and all-weather observations of my country's mainland and surrounding areas, and meet the needs of disaster prevention and mitigation, earthquake monitoring, land and resources survey, and marine, water conservancy, meteorology, agriculture, Environmental protection, forestry and other industry application requirements.
This is a IGEO sat.
