No, the first name assigned usually sticks. A few times they have initially
assigned a name to the wrong object. Even in that case, they just swap the
names around. Remember, it has a Russian callsign, so that is as logical a
choice as another. Some programs such as SATPC32 allow you to change the
designation to something else, such as ARRISat-1 or Ethel, if it suits you.

Just updated my HRD Sat program and it now lists keps for 'Radioscaf-B'.
(no ARRISat-1' listing)
Will that eventually change?

Just checked the latest AMATEUR.TXT download from Celestrak, used by many
tracking programs. ARRISat-1 is now included, though with the alternate
name RADIOSCAF-B. Thanks as always to Tim Kelso.
