We have seen that the on board temperatures are a few degrees lower than we expected and decided to attempt a command or two on the second pass over the UK.
Everyone was quite amazed that the very first command transmitted up to the spacecraft actually worked first time.
FUNcube-1 is now transmitting at approx. 270mW – about 10 dB stronger than safe mode. We will leave it in this mode for at least this orbit.
More news when we have some, but many many thanks to everyone for their support especially those who have uploaded the data to the warehouse – this has been extremely important in helping us understand what is happening on the spacecraft – we are very grateful to you guys!
We have data in from twelve countries.
