Don't jump to any conclusions.  Wait for the AMSAT engineering people to
give you the current and CORRECT information.  If any info comes from anyone
else, it is not a direct contact with the Space Station people.
Be patient and remember, the engineering team has many questions waiting to
be answered also.

Good question...  after the "test" prior to "Yuri's Day" the battery was
apparently depleted.  Whether it has been recharged or replaced, who knows? 
I'd still like to know whether NASA ever signed off on powering up the
satellite inside the space station...  seems like much of the time Roscosmos
forgets that they have PARTNERS in this venture.
