    When will there be any more dongles to order. I missed the order period by one day. Will there be any more within the next month?

      Hello Stephen

      Thanks for your note.

      Tentatively, somwhere around the weekend of 15/16 January _if_ the 100 units I have on order from my new manufacturer are good.


  2. A little more resolution in the picture and I can see mine… HI, HI !
    Hopefully arrives this week… Help, I’m not sure what sofware is better to play with it…

      Now you know the UK Information Commissioner might have some thing to say about that!

      I tend to use Spectravue, but that’s only because I’ve used it for a very long time.

    Hello Howard. Happy new year.

    Could you tell me if the FunCube Dongle Pro can work with a 10″ ASUS Netbook with Intel Atom?

    I´m wishing to receive my FCD as soon as possible for receiving Cubesats telemetries via hanheld SDR station.

    A local university is working with the project GENSO and is calling to amateur radio operators. I think the FCD could help to open a new window of exploration. Please watch:

      Hello Christian.

      Every unit produced is performance tested using an Acer Aspire 1 532h 10″ Netbook N450 Atom 1.66GHz, as it’s much handier than lugging around the development laptop to the comms test set.

      I believe that someone in GENSO has already written a hamlib interface by the way.

    Hi Howard
    Happy New Year.

    Thanks for all what you are doing. Can’t wait to get mine.
    I am very happy and excited that it’s on his way.

    Thanks Howard!
    Looks like I was the only one in Australia to get up at 6:00am and try my luck!
    (Or I was the fastest typist) A nice birthday present.
    73es and happy new year , looking forward to playing with it.

    Should the first batch(19th dec) be 2010 on the leader board?

  7. tony G3OVH says:

    This was a fantastic piece of work, Howard, over the holiday to get this batch out. PayPal is showing as sold out. What is the procedure to reserve a future unit, or is it ‘first come, first served’ when the next release takes place? Presumably 20% VAT has to be charged now for UK orders?

  8. tony G3OVH says:

    Hi Howard
    No need to answer – I just looked at the ordering FAQs. I guess we just need to set analarm to try and get an order posted when you wave the flag!

  9. Nicolas ON8NP says:

    Hi Howard,

    Thank very much. I got my FCD #195.


  10. Christian EA4EUN says:

    Hello. My FCD nº 191 is in my hands from today. Now I´m downloading WRPlus 1.03 and Spectravue.

    My Setup: Netbook Asus 1000H + FunCube Dongle + Arrow II Satellite antenna.

    And #188 made it through the snows of Tennessee. Working fine, though I am still learning which software, and how to optimize it, for various uses.
