I have had a meeting with my assemblers this morning and it looks like there’ll be a further delay so I won’t see any units until next week (w/c 20 June). I apologise for this delay, and as soon as I know any more I will post here.
In the meantime I thank you for your patience.
I want to buy a funcube avalable 13 june. When can I buy it.
I am hopgin to have some at the end of this week. I will know more on Wednesday if I can expect a delivery from my assembler.
I’m wanting to purchase for use with my school radio club. Just wondering if you have any news on date for educational version and cost. If it is still a long way off I will probably try on your next sale for a pro version. Thanks David G4DWP/MX0PSL Priory Academy School, Lincoln.
The educational version will not be released until after we have a launch date for the FUNcube satellite. There will be additional software available that will provide a simple, and hopefully seemless, end user interface specifically for the satellite.
After reading a thread at Radio Reference I am definitely on board for this one. I currently own an SDR-14 so I’m already familiar with SpectraVue. This looks like great fun. I’ll be watching for availability. Thanks Howard!

I’ve got mine some days ago, but I have some trouble using it.
I tried HDSDR and WinRad, but I got only the same frequency.
Can anyone tell me how to use this? I am a real noob to SDR.
Any other free software? Some frequencies for testing?
Thank you! Greetings from Germany!
First if you have not already done so join the FUNcube and FUNcube dongle yahoo group, you will find many other users more than willing to help,
the link can be found here http://uk.groups.yahoo.com/group/funcube/
I would start out with using Sprectravue the user guide for this can be found in the download section of this site and the yahoo group. Once you have it working,then you can move onto HDSDR and others.
Reasons you may only be receiving one freq could be, you need to run under admin, you don’t have the ExtIO in the same directory as the sdr software. you might need to update the stock firmware on the Dongle.
Hope this helps, But like I say take a look at the guides and join the user group.

Many thanks, Howard
