Hi Paul,

If EVERYTHING goes according to plan then FUNcube-1 could well be commanded 
to operate autonomously within a week or two of launch.

This means that the spacecraft will have a linear transponder for amateur 
use when in eclipse and high power telemetry for educational outreach when 
in sunlight

"Everything" means a positive power budget, reasonable on board 
temperatures, all antennas deployed plus a whole host of other on board 
parameters being ok after launch!




I know Delfi-n3xt and the Tritons won't be available for amateur use for
a few months. How about FUNcube? I wonder what the timetable is for
putting it into it's normal mode where it will be available for amateur
use in the evening.


Paul, N8HM
