Hi All,

In advance of the FUNcube-1 launch next week on November 21st at 07:10:11 UTC, this first release of the FUNcube Dashboard User Interface software is now available for download here:  http://funcube.org.uk/working-documents/funcube-telemetry-dashboard 

This software, when used with a FUNcube Dongle or other SSB capable VHF receiver, will decode and display all the 58 telemetry channels, all the on-board status flags and also the Fitter messages from the spacecraft.

The FUNcube Dashboard will also enable users to upload the telemetry they are receiving to a central Data Warehouse so that others around the world can see what is happening on board.

A fully illustrated set of installation and operating guidance notes can also be downloaded from that page.

Additionally we also have some IQ and audio files available here that can be used for testing. http://funcube.org.uk/working-documents/telemetry-examples/

Full details of the telemetry format, which has considerable heritage from AO-40, can be found here.http://funcubetest2.files.wordpress.com/2013/08/fun_downlink_data_draft_13.doc

We are very grateful to our software development team for their efforts in developing the Dashboard and we look forward to your feedback. Please let us have questions and experiences at the FUNcube forum at http://forum.funcube.org.uk/viewforum.php?f=3
