FUNcube Yahoo group


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┬áthe 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

    Hello Howard,

    my FCD Pro V1.1 serial 003827 is not in good working order, because it rpresnts itself as V0.0BL and furthermore it stays in bootloader mode with fast cw output or sometimes gives a S9+ signal, even if no antenna is connected.

    Therefore I want to ship it back and are awaiting your instructions how to do that.

    Awaiting your reply, regards, Jan Berman (Rotterdam nl)

      Hello Jan

      I have been away over the weekend so I have only just seen your message. Can you tell me if you attempted to update the firmware at any time? The unit is tested personally by me for functionality and sensitivity just before dispatch.

      Many thanks, Howard
