FUNcube-1 – One millionth packet milestone!

Many stations, including amateur / ham radio stations have been receiving the telemetry transmitted by FUNcube-1, which has now been in orbit for 221 days. The spacecraft, which has been operating nominally since launch, is providing on-board health and science data for the many schools and colleges who are already participating in the project around the world.

Since launch, data has been received by more than 650 stations. The one millionth data packet milestone has been reached, adding to an online data telemetry store of 256mb.

The FUNcube team have been successful in capturing almost 25% of all the telemetry transmitted including almost all of the Whole Orbit Data. 

The FUNcube team are seeking additional receiving stations in the FUNcube Ground Station Network. This applies especially to anyone near the poles or who is located on an island in the middle of ocean. Their involvement would help improve the rate of data capture still further.

The FUNcube records show that there were three stations who actually managed to upload the same one millionth packet to the data warehouse. They are G0EID, OM3BC and DL3SER.
