500 more dongles on order


I delivered enough parts for a further 500 FCDs to the assemblers today. The PCBs are due on Friday, and manufacture of the next batch will start next week.

      Hi Bruce

      See the “Order your FUNcube Dongle Pro” menu item. We are currently sold out though I am afraid.

    Thank You for restocking the assemblers. Have not been lucky enough yet, but I will.

    Apparently they sold out in 30sec 🙁

    I’ll try one more time if the next batch is ready. I’m deploying for a year pretty quick so I might have missed the boat 🙁

    Dear Howard,
    FCD had worked very well until now with a filter 87 and 108 MHz in entrance.
    The last two days I had some problems: the FCD was seen by the PC like Sound Card, I installed the last version of FIRMWARW but on SPECTRAVUE didn’t appear the spectrogram; the same thing appened on WRplus.
    Had I to resend everything to you in London?
    Thank you very much for the attention and tell me know what I have to do.
    FCD n° 00231

      Hello Paolo

      If you believe there is a hardware fault, mail it to me and I will take a look. I can usually fix them and return them on the same day.


      • Paolo Valfre' I1VPJ says:

        Dear Howard, all OK after the change of USB port … all OK thanks
        FCD at the time works very well about a 88-108 MHz filter !

    Any idea when the next batch will be posted for sale? I am ready to buy 🙂

    • admin says:


      I am awaiting information from the assemblers. I have discovered that the manufacturing chain turns out to be big on promises and short on delivery: for example, the PCBs were late and turned up at the wrong location, and two of the component parts showing availability turned out to be out of stock.

      I hope to start manufacture this week – it was due to start today, but I fear it won’t be until Wednesday at the earliest. I would suggest ten days until the next sale if all goes to plan (the latest plan that is!)


      • Marc Tessier - VE3TES says:

        Thanks very much for the quick reply, I do appreciate all you have done on this project and do plan to support your work once I get to hit that buy it now button fast enough… HiHi !!!

    Hi Howard,

    • Mans says:

      Hi again Howard,
      please note that the forum, top of this page still shows that “← Next sale: Wednesday 16 March 2011, 22:00 UTC”
      Which I guess misled a lot of people, at least that was my case.
      Oh well lets hope that patience can be rewording.

        Hello Mans

        I have updated the Order page. I am sorry that you were not successful on this occasion, tentatively I am looking to around 12 April for the next sale.


        • Mans says:

          Hi Howard,
          Thanks for the info. I will sure be on the look out on that day

          • Mans says:

            Hello Again Howard,
            I thing that the update you made on the Order page did not update this page (forum) as it still showing “← Next sale: Wednesday 16 March 2011, 22:00 UTC.
            Thanks again
