I think the reason for that change in live broadcast style is that this is not a JAXA satellite - the operational QZS system is operated under some organization directly under the Cabinet Office of Japan, so it seems that this might be done by another PR team.  ;)

Local news reported that QZS-3 (heading for geostationary orbit) might be launching around early August.

Launch replay. My brother found Leonardo as a kitten in a drain pipe at his work site. With his tortoise shell colour and underground origin, I named him after one of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

By the way it's years since I have seen a CRT computer monitor.

Congratulations to all involved in this launch.

Upper stage apparently seen by New Horizons team members who are in Argentina to observe an occultation involving the KBO target MU69
We saw the H-2A upper stage post-sep and under burn from Argentina during a field test of our #mu69occ gear tonight!
