Re: Notice of French AMSAT launch



Unfortunately no live broadcast to Europe via Astra/Spacenight/BR3
this night too...

However, there is a Web broadcast at http://www.arianespace.com

Ghislain F1HDD and FY1DW Norbert from AMSAT-France will
be sitting in the Jupiter control centre during launch.
