I am not familiar with the construction of the satellite, but, in the
pictures I saved, I can see the black, cylindrical object attached to the
'bottom' side of the satellite, smaller than the one on top....but unlike
the one on top, there seems to be no whip extending from it. I assume this
is the attachment point of the 70cm antenna and that there should be a whip
extending from it. Maybe it is there, but I couldn't see it.
