Congratulations to all who made ARISSat-1/KEDR successful!"
Continuing, Gould said, "ARRISat-1/KEDR has been developed, built, and tested by a remarkable team of radio amateurs. As the Project Manager for ARISSat-1/KEDR these past three years I have had the opportunity to work with a team of creative people to get to where we are now ... IN ORBIT!"
