While monitoring FO-29 for activity tonight, I saw what appeared to be the
distinctive waveform of the telemetry stream from FUNCube-1.
Is this common? Or even possible? It was certainly a first for me. I see
that the telemetry frequency on FUNCube-1 falls inside of the uplink range
The signal was a little too weak for me to decode with the FUNCube
dashboard ground station app, but I made some screen shots if anyone is
interested. My Tweet with pics is at:
FUNCube-1 was over Alaska & FO-29 was flying North-to-South down the
Eastern US. Would that put them in sight of each other?
If this is what happened, then it's my first satellite-to-satellite
reception, which I thought was pretty cool.
