> Indeed, the Russian Federal Space website says that Kedr 
(ARISSat-1) will be "Activated" on April 12 and you can see this can be 
acheived by connecting ARISSat-1 to the ISS antenna as they did on Feb 

curious how that works with "battery" life.  It is kind of interesting that the Energia folks seem to have thought this one up on their own, it seems to have caught the AMSAT folks a tad by surprise...
