AO73 – FUNcube-1 will return to full sunlight

by on September 15, 2021

After a few months of normal eclipse periods, FUNcube-1 will, next week, re-enter full sunlight from next week for a period of approximately two months.

As we have been in continuous transponder mode for some time now, we have decided that, during this sunlight period, FUNcube-1 should operate in continuous high power telemetry mode. The change will be made within the next few days.

FUNcube-1 has now been in orbit for almost eight years and the telemetry indicates that all systems, including the battery and solar panels appear to operating as well now as they did immediately after launch!
