    Hello, i would like to purchase 2 dongles, but my delivery adress differs from the one in paypal veryfied. Is that a problem? thank you

      Hello Roman.

      If the address is different to that on Paypal then we have to manually interrupt our upload between Paypal and Fedex. We can do it, but prefer not to for a number of reasons.

      The manual intervention required may mean that your unit is delayed in dispatch. Worse, if your email with the correct address gets stuck in spam filters then we may never see the address change request.

      In addition, if you choose to use a non-Paypal address, then we have to take a risk in that we do not have what little protection Paypal offers sellers.

      Therefore, we very strongly prefer the use of the correct Paypal address.

      The demand for the dongles really is crazy.

      If you look at the comments on earlier sale blog posts you’ll see that batches are normally sold out in one minute or so.

      If you don’t have a properly synchronized clock (DCF77/WWV/GPS/ntp/…) chances are high that you’ll miss the short window of availablility.

      I watched my “atomic clock”, and at about 5 seconds before 21:00 I pushed the “order” button. It took that time to crank around and get to the PayPal page, at which time orders had opened up, and mine went through. I checked 5 minutes later and it was still open. So there was at least a 5 minute window to order, it would appear. Good luck next time!

    AMSAT-UK is working on a new amateur satellite project – FUNcube – that features a 435 to 145 MHz Linear Transponder for SSB/CW operation. The project has received major initial funding from the Radio Communications Foundation (RCF) and is being developed in collaboration with ISIS-Innovative Solutions in Space BV.

    FUNcube is an educational single CubeSat project with the goal of enthusing and educating young people about radio, space, physics and electronics.
    It is anticipated that FUNcube will be launched into a Sun Synchronous Low Earth Orbit about 600-700km above the earth using one of the many launch opportunities that exist for CubeSat missions. In such an orbit the satellite passes over Europe approximately 3 times in the morning, and 3 in the evening, every day, perhaps allowing the morning passes to be used for educational purposes and the evening passes for Amateur Radio communications.
