Far, far more than that....

This project has been a fantastic PR event for all the elements concerned. 

It has brought about an overwhelming exchange of information and
co-operation across the world and has ignited a huge amount of interest for
the future.

These things are far more important to the community than perhaps the
success of the project as originally intended.

1) An object of this size can be deployed safely during an EVA.
2) RF output of the final assembly should be tested before deployment.
3) Slow tumbling of a single whip antenna makes reception difficult.
4) The ISS ham radio cannot receive weak signals.
