Hi Shakeel,

I do not really understand your question. SatPC32 can move your
antenna and also calculate some future passes.

Funcube can send data to the funcube warehouse. This may be what you
mean for telemetry archive.

The source code is shared here:
Are you using the dashboard here?:

Normally you configure SatPC32 to move the antenna, and use the
dashboard to send all the received data to the funcube warehouse. When
the data is in the warehouse you can access it.

Is this what you need? Are you only receiving the funcube satellite or
do you have different satellites you are interested in?

Are you sending data up to a satellite, and if so which one and what
data format?

Are you looking to make a standardised ground station. There was a
standard, and I think a few stations are operational, but there is not
much information online:

If you are transmitting, then it would be a good idea to try make it
compatible with other similar ground stations.

Please ask questions and try to explain what satellites you want to
receive and what you want to transmit.
