FUNcube-1 Telemetry 21-12-2013 20:01 UTC

After a longtime I gave FUNcube-1 a try using my FUNcube Dongle Pro+. The satellite is running in Eclipse mode, so the Beacon is running in low power and transponder is active. A total of 68 frames decoded and experiencing strong fading on the signal. I guess the satellites is spinning a lot.

In the above spectrum you can clearly see the beacon signal on the left and the transponder signals on the right.
