If it ever gets launched, telemetry and narrow band data should be on 2270.5MHz and the wideband downlink on 25900MHz

Strange, Kourou and optimum trajectory for L2.

One hopes the war vs the battle has been learnt with correct stage fueling.

'Incident' delays launch of James Webb Space Telescope



JWST is the $10bn (£7.5bn; €9bn) successor to the veteran Hubble telescope. It's been designed to look deeper into the Universe than its predecessor and, as a consequence, detect events occurring further back in time - more than 13.5 billion years ago.
Scientists also expect to use its more advanced capabilities to study the atmospheres of distant planets in the hope that signs of life might be detected.
