These days the main UHF satcom  frequency in use is 
261.875MHz there has been a fair amount of launch related 
traffic this afternoon on this channel.

Also there has been some Inmarsat TAL traffic too on three 
frequencies in parallel. 1540.025 1540.050 and 1535.475MHz 
from the AOR Inmarsat at 15.5W

I understand that there has been no related activity on 
263.625 for many years, so it might be worth deleting that 

On the IRC front, I must point out that there is little or 
no activity on #satcom channel, these days poeple have 
migrated to the busy and informative #hearsat channel see 
http://www.uhf-satcom.com/irc/ for details of how to join 
the channel.

Here's looking forward to a successful launch.

Best regards
