FUNcube Dongle Pro+ now shipping


On Thursday 18th October we invited those who were first in the waiting list to purchase the new FUNcube Dongle Pro+, and on Friday an additional batch was made available and more were invited to make their purchase. I hold each order for a week before releasing the stock to other purchasers.

It’ll take a few weeks to make our way through the backlog, so please be patient!

I have also added new documentation and downloads for the FUNcube Dongle Pro+ here.

Please note that you can order directly through the website here or with other retailers such as Martin Lynch. It will help us a great deal if orders are placed with only one outlet, as we use the forward orders to anticipate future demand and place bulk orders appropriately.

Many thanks, Howard

    When can expect to receive these two product ? because we are eager to test this wonder.

      Hello Filhol

      The current rate of distribution is 50 units per day. Pretty much as soon as the boards arrive from the manufacturer, I test them, put them into enclosures, test them again, put labels on, put them in their box, and dispatch. 50 per day is about as many as we can do without affecting quality. Zero defect is our aim!

      Many thanks, Howard

    Ordered the Pro+ through Martin Lynch & Sons on 19 September. What sort of distribution did they get of the new units?

      Hello Leslie

      The distribution is shared according to the number of outstanding orders we have.
