Looks like it's now official. 

The FAISAT-2v/VITASAT-1r launch is (finally) scheduled for 23 September 
@16:44 UTC. The backup date is 26 September. 

This is a 'standard' Cosmos launch from Plesetsk... 82 degrees 
inclination 1000 km altitude.  

I will post the main downlink frequencies when I have verified them.  I 
do not have the launch profile, but I suspect this launch is familiar 
enough with most of you. 

More details if/when I have them.
