Covering the BTLS-N "monoblock" before removing it

Russian friends: am I correct in thinking "monoblock" (which PAO is introducing to Englsh) is just the Russian word for "unit"  (i.e. a piece of equipment consisting of a single item)?

YAY I'm ready to take over. Although the HD video in combination with the flash ads on this site displayed on two screens simultaneously will soon burn this laptop down.

External Onboard Laser Comm Terminal BTLS-N will be removed from universal work platform URM-D and brought inside ISS. In future it will be installed outside MLM module.

EVA Work Station VRM and Biaxial Pointing Platform DPN will be installed onto URM-D in place of BTLS-N.

During EVA-37 on December 16, 2013 high-resolution UrtheCast camera will be installed onto DPN and middle-resolution UrtheCast camera - onto URM-D (in place of Foton-Gamma equipment removed during EVA-33). Both cameras will be delivered aboard Progress M-21M in November.

Ah, that makes more sense. During the depress, PAO talked about something being disposed of aboard the Progress and I thought he was talking about BTLS-N, but I must have misheard (was still rubbing sleep out of my eyes at the time)

I heard the same thing. And it's afternoon here so the PAO must have been wrong :)

They have to abandon installation and bring VRM+DPN back in - will stow on
EVA ladder for now (together with BTLS-N?)

Misurkin is trying to fix a loose WAL antenna cover at the back end of Zvezda.

I missed whether they spotted which WAL is missing its cover?

Misurkin is in an awkward posture such that he can't tighten a screw without others' help....

Looks like Yurchikhin is fixing another loose antenna's covers?  ???

At least one of the cover is completely loose and another one is slightly loose.

Ah gotcha - there are 6 antenna covers that needs to be inspected. Yurchikhin is dealing with the 3 at the front of Zvezda and Misurkin is dealing with the 3 at the aft end.

Sorry, but his surname Юрчихин /Yurchikhin/ ;) !
