Kodiak Star delayed again.



The Kodiak Star launch is on a day-to-day hold for the next few days.

On Sunday, a solar wind disturbance between 0900z and 1300z triggered
a geomagnetic storm.  Particle levels are 1000 times higher than normal
and until this subsides, the launch is on hold.

Launch site weather at Kodiak, AK is improving, and the radar problem of
Saturday is fixed.  Launch window remains at 0100z daily, but we will
NOT make any more postings until everything is GO.  Launch Preps take 8
hours, so you should get that much notice usually by 1700z the day before.
