There are a total of 25 spacecraft on board this mission, including KOREA's 425, Space BD’s ISL48, SITAEL’s uHETSat, D-Orbit’s ION SCV Daring Diego, York Space Systems’ Bane, and PlanetIQ’s GNOMES-4.
The ION SCV could be -012; that serial number was skipped over for the Transporter-9 payload.

Several cubesats and/or pocketsats could be aboard the "Daring Diego," including perhaps an Alba Orbital Cluster?
Gunter lists this as ION SCV-012.

ION SCV-002 and up

Less than one hour until Falcon 9’s launch of the Korea 425 mission from California. All systems and weather are looking good for liftoff

Should be T-20 minutes.

EIRSAT-1 webcast has begun.  No launch delay at this time.  Full-size? satellite model on table.

Loving the addition of Irish brogue to spaceflight! 🇮🇪

Thank you.

F9/425 Project: Now presumably 10 minutes to launch; this will be the 88th F9-family launch of '23 and the 278th single-stick F9 flight overall; booster B1061 is making its 17th flight; a successful Vandenberg recovery would be SpaceX's 14th in California and its 251st overall

Edit to add:

Quote
F9/425 Project (correction): A successful 1st stage landing would be SpaceX's 250th overall, not 251st (was looking ahead to the next Starlink launch!)
