    Will this satellite be called Nadezhda 6 ?
    Previous Nadezhda satellites were in a 1000km/83deg orbit:
    Nadezhda 1: 89-50A
    Nadezhda 2: 90-17A
    Nadezhda 3: 91-19A
    Nadezhda 4: 94-41A
    Nadezhda 5: 98-72A
    Is the newest Nadezhda of similar design(Tsikada, cospas/sarsat) as the
    previous ones and why this change into(sunsynchronous) orbit ?
    There has never been a sunsynchronous launch for the Kosmos 3M rocket as
    well, I believe.
