SATCOM C-4 LAUNCH TO BE RESCHEDULED

 SATCOM C-4 LAUNCH TO BE RESCHEDULED
 PRINCETON, N.J., Aug. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- GE American Communications,


Inc. (GE Americom) is rescheduling the launch of its communications satellite, SATCOM C-4 tentatively for Aug. 29.
 The launch was originally slated for Aug. 15.
 Routine pre-launch testing uncovered a technical problem in an element of a redundant satellite subsystem. All other elements of that subsystem were tested and met specifications. The company has rescheduled the launch in order to make the necessary corrections and conduct thorough retesting of the redundant subsystem.
 SATCOM C-4 will be placed in geosynchronous orbit at 135 degrees W.L., and will distribute major cable TV programming to cable systems nationwide.
