FUNcube Dashboard Summary Update

by on January 21, 2019

Each satellite carrying a FUNcube payload has a dedicated dashboard and we have updated the one page summary (FUNcube Dashboard Summary v3) of those dashboards, their current version number and a dedicated download link.

Telemetry Dashboard

We have included the recommended warehouse settings for each satellite as well as the “FCD Centre Frequency”.  Note that the frequency we quote is 20kHz offset from the published telemetry downlink to allow for the zero hertz spike and close in phase noise that is inherent on SDRs.

Currently, to view the telemetry for a particular satellite, it is necessary to run the dashboard for that satellite.  Any telemetry for one of the other FUNcube satellites can be captured and forwarded to the central data warehouse.  For this reason, some users tend to run all dashboards simultaneously using the same FUNcube Dongle.  Users should remember the that dashboard that was started last, is the one that will control the frequency settings applied to the FUNcube Dongle.

All the dashboards are under continual development and a further planned development is to create a single dashboard that will service all FUNcube Telemetry payloads simultaneously .  Keep a look out for further news on this unified dashboard in 2019.

  1. Hello and thank you very much for the work with Telemetry Dashboard. It is truly one of the best telemetry software in the amateur radio satellite community!

    In future releases, should it be possible to add support for the RTL-SDR Dongle and/or Airspy units? I think if supporting these units would be a great feature as these units are very common among amatear radio users.

    Best regards, 73

    • Hello Lars,

      Thanks for the feedback, we’ll discuss adding RTL support at our next developers meeting this April.
