During the International ARISS teleconference Sergey Samburov, RV3DR announced that the ARISSat battery will be charged late July and a test of the system will be conducted on the ISS from 1915 UTC 30 July to about 1200-1400 UTC 31 July.

The standard ARISSat-1/KEDR 2m downlink band plan should be transmitted as well as the FM signal also downlinked on 437.55 MHz. More information as it becomes available.

Today we are looking at a 3 Aug 2011 date for EVA 29 and the ARISSat-1/KEDR deployment. This is all subject to change.
