If you guess from looking at the dates that 1397 is Telstar 19V, then it does look like TESS had permits and that the launch pad doesn't need to be corrected between 39-A and 40 if they move a flight (at least not on the publicly released documentation on the web site.)  That kinda sucks for lining these up in the future.

1398 from SLC-40 NET July 2.  That would fit well with 1397 being Telstar 19V and 1398 being Telstar 18V.

0715-EX-ST-2018   1397 Launch Vehicle Comms      6/17/2018   SLC-40
0717-EX-ST-2018   First Stage Recovery (ASDS)      6/17/2018   
0762-EX-ST-2018   1398 Launch Vehicle Comms      7/2/2018   SLC-40

SpaceX received it's NOAA remote sensing license on May 2nd, 2018 allowing them to broadcast video from the second stage.

FCC File Number 0915-EX-ST-2018
Quote
This application uses information from previous grant 0416-EX-ST-2018. This STA is necessary for Dragon2 capsule telemetry, tracking, and command, for the upcoming SpaceX Commercial Crew vehicle demonstration mission to the International Space Station. The launch and re-entry licensing authority is the FAA. Launch is also to be coordinated with the Eastern Range. On-orbit rendezvous with the ISS is to be coordinated with the NASA.

Operation Start Date:   08/31/2018

There's a NET date at least, now to see how far that slips...

GO for launch, GO for age of reflight

Four new grants today:

WJ9XHP (2x) (Mission 1419) - TTC prelaunch checkouts & launch vehicle comms, NET August 3
WJ9XFQ (Mission 1398) - Booster recovery ops, NET July 2 - ASDS location (North 28 17 45, West 73 53 39), Telstar 18V
WF9XGI - DM1 capsule communications, NET August 31

The two WJ9XHP grants are the same as the 1002 and 1005 filings gongora posted.

Up to 5 grants today now (there were only 2 when I looked earlier.)

Also a new one:

1111-EX-ST-2018
Quote
Please explain in the area below why an STA is necessary:
The Experimental License application previously filed is required (0314-EX-CN-2018) for long term usage. This STA is meant to cover testing required months before the inaugural flight of the Crew Dragon spacecraft (STA: 0915-EX-ST-2018).

Purpose of Operation
Please explain the purpose of operation:    Low-power, pre-flight checkout/testing of flight hardware prior to launch.

Requested Period of Operation
Operation Start Date:   07/03/2018

Locations are Hawthorne factory and the DPF/NPF buildings at the Cape.

SpaceX filed a new Launch Vehicle Communications permit for Mission 1398 (1166-EX-ST-2018), which I've been thinking of as Telstar 18V.  The NET date changed to August 17 (which fits the latest schedule notes from Ben Cooper's site).  The reason for the new permit is they tweaked the communication frequencies and increased the bandwidth for the booster.  (They are actually showing two different emission designators for each of the two frequencies on the first stage, which is not the usual pattern.)

SpaceX has resubmitted the Telkom-4 (Mission 1419) permits to allow the August 2nd launch date. I am thinking that this mission can now go a day earlier because Telstar 18V has slipped to mid-August. It appeared to have been originally scheduled to go first.

Edit: Or maybe Parker Solar Probe deconfliction? If this one gets delayed a day things will get interesting.

They submitted and already received grants for the launch vehicle communications and recovery operations, don't see anything for the third permit they had for the original date (pre-launch fairing re-rad test).  The payload order did switch.

Looks like something (most likely SAOCOM-1A) is launching before Iridium 8 at Vandenberg. There is a license application for a mission 1335 today launching NET September 5.

Why do we think this is something before IR8?  Last I saw, IR8 was NET Sept 2018 with no definitive date attached.

As I see it, September 5 would be ~45 days between NEXT launches, whereas the average for the last four is more like 65 days. Matt recently quoted Iridium-8 as NET "September/October" and Brian Webb's VAFB Launch Alert put it at NET "Oct/Nov".

I'd say 40/60 odds for iridium-8/SAOCOM-1A in early September.

They're usually trying for 8 weeks turnaround from one Iridium launch to the next and they often miss it by a bit.  I don't think they could do it in 6 weeks.  I expect Iridium-8 in late September or October.

Mission numbers for Iridium missions, excluding Iridium-6 with GRACE-FO (which was contracted later I guess), are consecutive, so Iridium-8 should be 1343.
