As suggested yesterday, we now expect the transponder to be activated during the upcoming pass over Europe around 10:!5 UTC – it should stay on until the battery safe mode trigger is activated after perhaps 6 or 7 orbits. Saturday will probably be a recharge day and not active. However on Sunday we expect it to again be activated.
If you are not able to attend the AMSAT-UK Colloquium tomorrow you can watch a webstream - kindly provided by volunteers from the British Amateur Television Club (BATC). https://beta.batc.tv/live/amsatuk The FUNcube session starts at around 11:10 BST / 10:10 UTC and will provide an update on the plans for the future regular operation of this transponder.
