Now I see what you've been busy with :) I feel bad for bugging you with silly Zigbee questions now.

Hi R.D., Now that two weeks has pasted, it turns out that radio amateurs are communicating through ARISSat-1 just fine. I'd say we got lucky on this one!

I hope that the satellite will work well enough to encourage others to launch others in the future. The idea is really exciting and it is a shame that the antenna was broken. I wonder what more can be done to augment the broken antenna?

As a former satellite guy, I appreciate that all is not lost. Still, the loss of those dB's is painful. But congratulations on getting something up there and getting at least a good chunk of the access you were expecting.

On the broken UHF uplink antenna, people are still able to communicate to the satellite. It is estimated that ~1.5 inches of the antenna exists in the base. Reports coming in say that the orientation of the satellite matter (which makes sense).

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros & cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight, as are piloted airplanes? Is the technology advancing faster than we can answer the questions it poses? Panelists: Chad Sweet, Director of Engineering, Qualcomm; Yannick Levy, VP Corporate Business Development, Parrot; Jim Williams, ex-FAA drone chief; Michael Drobac, Exec. Director, Small UAV Coalition; Moderator: Junko Yoshida, Chief Int'l Correspondent, EE Times
