Galileo has added two satellites to its constellation.

Shortly after the Galileo satellite using the E24 PRN code started transmitting, its sibling began transmitting using code E30. Several stations participating in the International GNSS Service Multi-GNSS Experiment are tracking the new satellites.

Prof. René Warnant from the University of Liege has reported that as of 10 October, their  PolaRx4 and PolaRxS receivers (but not yet NetR9 receivers) are tracking one of the new Galileo satellites using code E24.

Meanwhile, the latest BeiDou satellite, BeiDou I2-S, appears to have reached its orbital slot with a nominal nodal longitude of 95 degrees east.

    Perhaps one could mention that the newest Beidou satellite uses PRN32 and it is continuously tracked by at least MAL2 in MGEX:

    MAL2, Kenya, ESA / ESOC, -3.00, 40.19, -020.4, SEPT POLARX4, 2.9.0
