The luanch time might be an hour earlier.
No, the launch time is quite good (06:14 UTC would be even better but we should not expect launch exactly to an existing plane for these systems).
The problem starts with selecting arbitrary launch time within a five-hour NOTAM window. This is an error. Even now, we should expect launch between 06:17 and 06:41, and 06:25 is only a guess.
