Did we ever get a permit request for CSG-2?

Launches under the LSP don't usually need an FCC permit IIRC (like they also don't need an FAA license) so I don't think IXPE is good candidate.

Maybe the permit for mission 1562 is for CSG-2 and they just got the coordinates wrong (copy paste error ?)

But then one could ask what mission 1526 is for if they don't need permits for LSP launches...

SpaceX has had permits for LSP missions before.  Maybe it's because of the landing portion of the permits, they typically get them for all missions including government launches unlike ULA.

This application uses information from previous grant 0156-EX-ST-2021. This STA is necessary to authorize launch vehicle communications for Mission 1715 Starlink Group 4-3 from Cape Canaveral FL at LC-40 CCAFS or LC-39a at KSC, and the experimental recovery operation following the Falcon 9 launch.

F9 launch from Florida NET January 10 with no droneship shown
1811-EX-ST-2021

I was thinking this could be the second O3b launch, which will be expendable, but January seems way too early for that.

Why would the 2nd O3b launch be expendable when it will carry the same payload as the 1st one? When SES ordered extra O3b satellites they also modified the SpaceX launch contract to 4 launches of 11 satellites (3-3-3-2).

Interesting, you might be onto something.

My guess is SpaceX might be planning on adding a bunch of Starlink sats to the Transporter stack and then fly expendable with B1049.11 which is the oldest booster in the fleet. Elon has said in the past that the older boosters are a pain in the butt to refurbish because they don't have many of the upgrades that the newer boosters have received.

I don't get this mission numbering.     1908-EX-ST-2021

Starlink 4-5, launching southeast from the Cape, NET late December.
Droneship location east of the Bahamas
North  25  43  12   West  75  2  52

Maybe they are launching two rings at a time?  50+ divided by 2?  So 4-5 is actually ring 5 & ring 6?

Only the SSO planes have more than 22 sats, so launches with 50+ satellites to the 53 or 70 degree shells end up in at least three planes.

Welcome Coveman.

Slight issue with that: 2-1 was from VSFB and 2-3 also indicated to be VSFB so seems a bit odd for it to be opposite way around for shells 2 and 4 but who knows with SpaceX. Maybe someone just likes odd numbers.

Or maybe SARah-1? I don't really see any other options.
