Hi Ed, KL7UW

If you read the Gould Smith report SB SAT @ AMSAT $ANS-104.01
ARISSat-1 Not Heard During Gagarin Commemoration you will realize
that there was a very poor connection between NASA, AMSAT and
RSC-Energia so that any possible responsibility about the unsuccesful
test of ARISSAsat-1 is not only in partnering with the RSC-Energia.
