Hi all.

I see Spaceflightnow.com  have announced a delay to the amateur satellites initially due to fly on the 20th July

I was searching around for the up and downlink frequencies for the transponder, but instead found this: 

Long March 6 • Multi-payload
Launch time: TBD
 Launch site: Taiyuan, China
A Chinese Long March 6 rocket will launch with a cluster of small Chinese amateur and university research satellites. The flight will mark the first launch of the Long March 6, a new rocket fueled by kerosene and liquid oxygen to replace China’s previous generation of launch vehicles. Delayed from July 20. [July 6]

It suggests the new launch date will be in September.
