Delfi C3 first orbit

Hi all.
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 
about right?
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.
Exciting times......
