The FUNcube team put FUNcube-1 (AO-73) into full time high power Telemetry mode on 9th March, to test out the response of the Battery and PA temperatures as the satellite starts to enter an eclipse period. This has thrown up some interesting thermal responses within the satellite (nothing threatening). The battery temps have gone down in response to the PA consuming / dissipating more energy.
We will be reviewing the move back to transponder mode in the next few days and will publish the timeline here and on other social media channels.
As always we should like to express out thanks to all those who capture data packets and upload them to the data warehouse:
