Delfi C3 is being launched at 03.53 UTC on Monday.
I've loaded the keps from the web site, and it looks like the first stations
to hear the satellite will be on the west coast of the USA at around 05.01
when the satellite exits eclipse heading north. Can anyone confirm this sounds
It doesn't look like the satellite will have a good pass over the University
ground station until around 4.5 hours after launch. All the more reason to
collect some valuable telemetry in the first few hours.
