UKube-1 Update

UKube-1 was successfully launched, as planned, on Tuesday 8th July 2014.

Signals were heard from the spacecraft during the first pass over the UK from both the main telemetry transmitter on 145.840MHz and the FUNcube 2 transmitter on 145.915MHz.

After operating successfully for more than four years, the FUNcube-2 payload ceased transmitting on October 18th 2018 when the bus voltage, from at least one of the batteries, dropped suddenly.
