What is the official AMSAT/ARISSat1 team finding on the ARISSat-1 70cm quarter-wave
receive antenna on the bottom of the satellite? I have not heard updated news about that 
since the jettison occurred.

Was it the dummy load or was the dummy load taken off and the flight antenna installed to 
deployment while in the ISS ,but later accidentally broken off when the cosmonauts hand
carried it through the Pirus hatch?
