Cross-post re: Beidou-3G1Q launch date:
Launch will be on Nov 1st.

Yes and the flight for BDS-3 M17/M18 should be around mid-November per processing time required (they arrived at the launch site in early October).

What orbital slots are these two satellites to take in the Beidou-3 MEO constellation?

Would that give any indication of launch window time-of-day?  (before the NOTAMs &/or NOTMARs are posted)

Or are we waiting for the launch time to determine the intended orbital slots?
