Thank you Wouter!
Delfi-C3 truly is and was an inspirational satellite. It broke new ground from a CubeSat perspective and allowed many of us to share in the science and amateur radio part. Congratulations to the team for a job well done! I would greatly appreciate if you could list for us some of the published papers and publicly available presentations to read up on the many accomplishments. It also would make a for a great reference for any upcoming CubeSat project.

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.

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 progress _______________________________________________ Sent via [email protected].
