The FUNcube Dongle is primarily designed for use with AMSAT-UK’s forthcoming FUNcube satellite, but we’ve found it’s being used in a pleathora of other space applications including radio astronomy, deep space probe monitoring and receiving signals bounced off the moon.
But it doesn’t end there. There are plenty of other applications, terrestrial as well as space, not to mention its use as a piece of test equipment. You only need to take a look at the FUNcube Yahoo group – with nearly 2,500 members – to get an idea. Although the group is independent of the day-to-day FUNcube Dongle manufacturing and distribution operations, the community on the FUNcube group also have been invaluable in getting many people started with their FUNcube Dongles – a big thank you to all on the group!
Many thanks, Howard
