Arissat will be fun, but objects launched from the ISS don't stay in orbit 
all that long. The linear transponder is going to have to compete for time 
with all the other downlink  modes & experiments the bird can do.  I'm 
thinking the linear transponder probably won't be turned on much, because 
it might upset the FM'ers.
