Moved to this section instead of the previous one. Not ideal place as we don't have a satellites section, but should do.
If you use Google, it will give you some info.
It was launched in December 2007.
According to Lyngsat, Rascom 1 is now at 2.8°E.

Due to using most of the fuel getting her into orbit thanks to the Russkies botching the launch shes only got a 2 year lifespan!

Theres no info about when services will start.

I would hardly think that there would be much point in doing anything with her now, she will be useless in no time so a bit pointless using her for anything.

Very best regards Wez
