Came across this article in Space News. It appears that Dish will be using Sea Launch for launch services in the next few years so perhaps E-16 will ride on a Zenit-3SL rocket.

That would be nice. SeaLaunch did a good job for past EchoStar missions.

Thanks for the reminder ... DISH made the launch on Channel 101 a non-recordable event. I almost forgot that it happened today.

I assume everything is "nominal"?

The latest launch on that site was 11/14 (MERIDIAN 6) ... so it may take a while for a launch that was only 8 hours 26 minutes ago to show up. :)

(A Chinese launch on 11/18 is also missing from n2yo.)

Everything occurred as planned with ignition, shutdown and separation of the Proton’s first three stages. Then the Breeze M upper stage with the satellite continued the mission, igniting five times, and then releasing the satellite into transfer orbit.

Now, we should get TLEs soon.

I guess we all fell asleep on this thread. :)

Tracking: http://www.n2yo.com/?s=39008

"ECHOSTAR 16 will raise its orbit to an altitude of 22,300 miles (35,888 km) over the equator in the next few weeks. The craft will also extend its solar panels and activate its communications gear for testing. The satellite, which weighed 14,660 pounds (6,650 kg) at launch, was manufactured by Space Systems/Loral. The spacecraft will be positioned at 61.5 degrees west longitude in the geostationary belt for its 15-year design life. It will be leased by EchoStar Corp. to Dish Network, a leading provider of direct-to-home television programming in the United States. EchoStar 16 also carries a disc with 100 images of humanity and nature—part of a project by artist Trevor Paglen called "The Last Pictures." The images were micro-etched on a silicon disc encased in a gold-plated shell."
