Delfi-C3 has celebrated its 6th birthday on the 28th of April.
The spacecraft is still operational, telemetry only, on 145.870 USB
Delfi-C3 has exceeded its mission lifetime by six times now, and on-board
telemetry still does not indicate degradation in performance.
So far, our distributed ground station network (DGSN) has collected 2037513
frames as of today, received by 376 registered radio amateurs and many more
on the guest account, using the free RASCAL software. This would not have
been possible without your continued support.
Please note that the original team of students has long graduated, and
delfi-c3 operations are done by very few volunteers. We continue to monitor
the live telemetry in our spare time.
