A great way to help make a bit of history, but also a great purchase for the
shack. It works well, with the right antennas, for receiving amateur
satellites. Software is rapidly being developed to support it, and it is
also very useful as an inexpensive service monitor.

Subject: [amsat-bb] FUNcube Dongle serial #200 on eBay,and your name in
A few minutes after Friday's sale, I had a purchaser change their mind, so
rather than add the spare unit to the next sale, I'm making it generally
available with all proceeds from the sale going towards AMSAT-UK launches.
Although every FUNcube Dongle sold adds to the AMSAT-UK coffers, this
special unit, serial number 200, is sold with the added bonus that your name
or callsign will be etched into the FUNcube spacecraft when it's launched in
the next few months.
