Typo on the callsign that should have read G0AUK.

As I've had several email already on the subject I'll confirm this was only an initial test of the transponder. It was commanded off towards the end of the pass. 

Testing and analysis of the telemetry data from FUNcube-1 (AO-27) is continuing.

Thank you to all stations who have provided telemetry so far. We would encourage more stations to download the Dashboard software to receive the telemetry and upload it to the Data Warehouse
