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.

Presently, commissioning of the spacecraft is continuing, and there may be future occasions when the FUNcube  telemetry transmitter will be activated during this period.

Although we have not yet released the FUNcube 2 version of the Dashboard, the existing version 830 will correctly decode the data and forward it to the FUNcube Data Warehouse. Therefore if you do receive some data frames then please forward them to the Warehouse in the usual way.
