ARISSat-1 has no 430 MHz transmitter and the MRM2 has no amateur radio antenna.

this is why we did not hear it....they had the 430mhz transmitter turned
on... was anyone listening to the 70cm frequency? all the preparations
on 2m and we were in the wrong place.
Afterwards, Dmitri performed hardware deactivation & close-out
activities on the TEKh-43 Radioskaf-B “Kedr” test microsatellite in the
MRM2 Poisk module which had been connected to an 825M3 Orlan battery and
operated its 430 MHz transmitter yesterday.
