    Dear List,
         In just under two weeks, Greece's first satellite will be launched
    from Florida. I was wondering if a five-digit NORAD satellite ID is
    available? Also, it seems the satellite will be operational about six
    days after launch ... can I assume that it will be in its operational
    orbit soon after launch or will there be manouvering thereafter lasting
    more than the 30 minutes to get it into its proposed slot?
         Finally, the projected slot is at 39-deg East ... is any
    information available at this time as to the actual location with
    respect to existing geosats. For those interested, the solar panels are
    supposed to span 32 meters and the satellite is supposed to measure 4.9m
    x 1.7m x 2.5m (Mike McCant: info for your special file containing
