Good to meet you on e-mail.
If I heard my ears right, the EVA crew deployed ARISSat-1 at 2:43 P.M. EDT from the ISS without the one antenna attached.
Yikes! (So much for a cross-band transponder.)
There is a big story to be told about that one, and I will be first in line to hear.
Obviously, more news to follow.

Patrick, did they really deploy the satellite? I thought they couldn't find the UHF antenna!
