We are waiting on a decision whether or not to deploy the satellite as is, 
without the 70cm antenna. If, in fact, the 70cm antenna is missing, there 
would of course be no communications possible through the transponder. 
Translation: one more piece of space junk that is useless to the amateur 
radio community that helped pay for it!
I guess I shouldn't be too upset. I'm sure there are many others that have 
much more invested than I do.
