    Sorry Kevin, you will have to wait a little longer- owing to an out of 
    specification condition being detected seven minutes before launch, it has 
    been scrubbed to no earlier than February 25.
    
    We will have our chance  with MTSAT 1R- looks like a very nice geosat for us 
    down here- more on that later.
