I attached the top and two side solar panels to the satellite today in preparation for an antenna test tomorrow? Last week I also added a layer of kapton tape beneith the panels in order to prevent them from shorting out.

The software supports all four DS2406 (switch used for antenna deployment) though has not been tested on the EDU cubesat
Command is CMD_DEPLOY, [arg]
or "6, n"
where the upper nibble identifies the switch (8=sw4, 4=sw2, 2=sw2, 1=sw1) and the lower nibble identifies the number of seconds to stay closed (0-15). If no argument is set, the default closure time is 1 second for all of the four switches. This default value is likely to be adjusted after antenna deployment testing is completed
