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.
