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).
