    info from reddit

    SpaceX is targeting an early afternoon liftoff on June 23rd 2017 at 14:10 EDT (18:10 UTC). The launch window extends to 16:10 EDT (20:10 UTC) and, in case of weather, range, pad or vehicle issues the launch can be moved to any time available in the window. The launch window is 2 hours long, so in case of an hold during the initial part of the window, there should be enough time to recycle the count.


    Primary Mission - Separation and Deployment of BulgariaSat-1

    BulgariaSat-1 will be the 4th GTO comsat launch of 2017 and 15th GTO comsat launch overall for SpaceX. BulgariaSat-1 is a commercial telecommunications satellite built by Space Systems Loral (SSL) for BulgariaSat, an affiliate of Bulsatcom. It has a mass of approximately 3669 kg and it will be delivered to GTO, but the Delta V to GEO (It can range from 1450 m/s to 1850 m/s usually) is currently unknown.

    BulgariaSat-1 is a geostationary communications satellite intended to be located at the Bulgarian orbital position, which will provide direct-to-home television (DTH) and data communications services to South East Europe and other European regions. BulgariaSat-1 will provide reliable satellite communications solutions to broadcast, telecoms, corporate and government customers. It is the first geostationary communications satellite in the history of the country.

    The satellite is built on the SSL-1300 platform and carries 3 Ku-band FSS transponders and 30 Ku-band BSS transponders. It will be positioned at 2° East.
