And now the news:

---------- WEEKLY ROUND-UP

Due to a late launch, Astra 2A will not reach 28,2e by November.

to compensate until Astra 2A is launched and operating.

Apologies for the late weekly update. I forgot to mention that over the

updates. Everything should now hopefully be running (even more)
