PCSAT2 completed Astronaut deployment training about
2 weeks ago with a visit of the EVA crew to practice
opening and closing PCSAT2 and deploying the tape
measure antennas with a flight glove.

Since the spacecraft was "man handled" quite a bit
that day, we have now scheduled a performance check
in about 3 weeks to verify that everything still works.
PCSAT2 is complete and sitting in the cleanroom 
ready for shipment.

Current Launch is the coming March?
