Darn! Missed the launch this morning. Glad everything went okay. I guess Charlie saved a bundle on insurance.

No, no Chris :)

The satellite was insured for the actual launch up until vehicle separation. As of 8:11am (Spacecraft separation) Charlie is on his own if the satellite doesn't want to work.

Anyway, it was a pretty launch.

As of 8:33 am still awaiting spacecraft aquisition.

See ya

Satellite aquired at 8:47. Good stuff. Charlie later said that they have a lot of work ahead of them to get the satellite operational by April.

See ya

I left for work when they were still waiting to aquire the spacecraft. (What a great looking launch!)

The voice of the launch said that the satellite would be in a test orbit for 10 days and then would be moved to final orbit and ready for use about 45 days after the 10 day park in the test orbit. This according to my math is 55 Days. Which brings us to around April 18th for the bird to start loading.
