Dongfanghong 3 will launch in first quarter of 1997 instead
Nov./Dec. this year.

The Tempo 1 launch is delayed until Feb./March 1997.

--- HOT BIRD 2:
This satellite has now reached 13 East and further tests have
been performed the last few days. It's expected to start regular
transmissions either on 16 or 20 December.
For updated information, please check the Hot Bird 2 chart
at http://www.satcodx.com/hotbird.html

This satellite is currently testing around 22 East, and probably
moving at the same time towards 30.5 East.
For updated information, please check the Arabsat 2B chart,
at http://www.satcodx.com/a2b.html

The complete Astra chart is/was far too big, and probably took too
long time to download! Today, you can get this in six smaller files,
one per satellite. The complete chart is still available so you can
choose which one to look at. When you take a look at Chart Index for
Europe, it's obvious how you should select the different charts.

Further layout improvements for satellites at 13 East will follow...

There may be irregularities in these mails the next few weeks
due to the upcoming Christmas and New Year celebrations.
