Graham and the FunCube team,

A huge thankyou to all of you for the hard work and regular updates of 
progress, I think I first heard about the FunCube satellite when I was made 
aware of the FunCube Dongle, shortly before it was released for sale.

I was very lucky and managed to get serial no. 104 of the very first batch, 
I've had a great time with this receiving various satellites and terrestrial 
stations, I'm also very happy  Simon Brown added support for this with is 
SDR console software.

I'll have this running for the launch, along with the dashboard software - 
but will be at work for the day, and a good part of the evening - hoping I 
can remote in to home to check up on the reception occasionally.

We have a busy week with launches - I'll be a happy chap to have some new 
'toys in space' to play with.

Good luck on the launch, and thank you to everyone involved in the team 
again for their fantastic work.
