Cross-posts:
There are reports from tour operators that 4 launches from Xichang...are expected in May-June.

After YG-30-08 launched it was reported that they plan for another 7 (!) LM-2C launches this year. They also reported that procedures are being simplified to compress launch processing flows starting with the launch campaign for YG-30-10, so at least two more such triplets are going up soon.

Maybe even more since tour operators at Xichang is reporting 2 launches per month there through to August. Next one there should be FY-4B.

Tianqi-10 series

Tianqi-12 launched with Yaogan-30 Group 08.
Tianqi-14 launched with Yaogan-30 Group 09.

From the Yaogan-30 Group 09 launch thread:
Tianqi-14 was namend Jiaxing-1(嘉兴号)
According to this source http://www.3snews.net/smartcity/260000072347.html the next satellites of the constellation will be launched on July 21st (Ruijin-1;瑞金号) and September 20th (Yan'an-1;延安号)

If the pattern continues, a Tianqi satellite will launch with Yaogan-30 Group 10.

The launch would be on July 21, an apparently sufficient time to turn around the facilities after the launch of Tianhui-3 from Xichang.

That's confusing. Tianqi 14 was launched on 18 June.

That's true, I'm sorry for misunderstanding. So, no new information for this launch.

<NOTAMs snipped>
The coordinates at the center of the 10km exclusion circle match the coordinates of XSLC.

The July 19 UTC launch time is 4 days "early" compared to the next-most recent launch date revealed.  It may be a consequence of this:

The launch time listed by the NOTAMs lines up with Group 02 (2017-075).
Launches Seen: Atlas V OA-7, Falcon 9 Starlink 6-4, Falcon 9 CRS-28,

chinaspaceflightfans.cn now lists launch time on July 19 as 08:16 BST.
08:16 BST - 8 hours = 0016 UTC

Launch site at XSLC stated as LC-2.  This would break the alternating cadence between use of LC-2 and LC-3 and would break the practice of using LC-3 for Yaogan-30 Group launches.

This is likely a typo as the previous launch from LC-2 was less then 2 weeks ago.
