Dear all,

Delfi-C3 has been in orbit 7 years and one day today! When we designed
Delfi-C3, no-one would have dreamed it would last this long.

The satellite still remains healthy and strong. We are delighted to still
get the support of the ham radio community and in all those years there
have been very few days where no telemetry was decoded and submitted. Thank
you very much to those still decoding and sending in telemetry and also to
those still signing up for new accounts.

Delfi-C3 has been praised numerous times as the ideal example of a
cooperation of radio amateurs and an university and the team is very proud
of that. Together we have demonstrated the first successful Distributed
Ground Station Network (DGSN) built around radio amateurs. We as a
community can be very proud of this achievement! Without your continued
support, this would not have been possible.

73s on behalf of the team,

Wouter Weggelaar

ps: in the near future we may have to re-locate the data collection server
and when this happens we will of course make sure to update AMSAT-BB on the
