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?

Plane C, there are four free slots in it.

Rui's very meaty article. Will update if deemed successful (32nd if so). 33rd launch overall for the year.
