    Justin Ray has an update on progress toward manoeuvring AEHF 1 into its planned orbit. Last month's
    successful REA (Reaction Engine Assembly) manoeuvres are discussed, as are preparations and plans
    for the upcoming HCT (Hall Current Thruster) manoeuvres.

    Based on the article, my guess is that the recent HCT manoeuvring was part of thruster-conditioning,
    and daily manoeuvres may begin by about the final week of October.
