8:07AM PDT (about 17 minutes after hatch opening).

There’s the 2M whippy antenna on the right of ARISSat-1. Is that the 440 antenna - bent - on the left?


UPDATE 10:25PM PDT - Yet another Bradford “Duh!” moment? Yes - sorry.  Andrew KO4MA points out that the 440 whip should be Kapton tape gold in color. That “object” on the left is the tether ... And now, as I turn up the brightness on my monitor, I can plainly see the curving tether attached to the ISS. OK - enough for today. G’night!
