   This just floated in from the HearSat mailing list.  Go to it,
orbitologists! 

   Are there any NOTAMs out indicating launch azimuth? 

   Also, has anyone (other than folks on GRU SIGINT trawlers, of course) tried 
to measure the doppler shifts of the S-band telemetry carriers to help with 
trajectory analysis ?

   Also also, would an up-the-coast trajectory, as John Pike says has been
rumored, allow resolved photography as and after the payload shroud
separates?
