Just to confirm that, as usual, FUNcube-1 is now in permanent transponder mode for the weekend. Tomorrow, Nov 21st, marks our second birthday in space and an update about the mission has just been posted on the http://funcube.org.uk/2015/11/20/the-second-birthday-of-funcube-1/ webpage to celebrate this event.
The FUNcube team is really delighted to have reached this milestone with the spacecraft continuing to perform pretty well perfectly. We are very grateful to everyone who is continuing to download the telemetry and to forward the data to our Data Warehouse. It is really valuable both to the Operations team and for outreach purposes. Please keep this data flowing if you can and if you know of any possible listening sites in out of the way places around the globe we would be pleased to hear about them.
We are continuing to develop further enhancements of the ground software and will be making further announcements about these as soon as we can.
