Based on the NOTAMs available, any hint of what cargo may ride this one into orbit? Another Tongxin experimental comsat?

Unfortunately the drop zone locations only indicate something going to a standard GTO.
The fairing size might give out a bit more clues...but not that much.

🚀 Liftoff at ~11:57UTC on June 29, a Long March 7A launched ChinaSat-3A from Wenchang

The satellite's official description is a generic one for a GEO communication satellite - "providing sound, data and TV broadcasting for users". Probably something similar to the classified ChinaSat-1x/2x series?

EDIT: CAST is the satellite manufacturer.
