Delfi-n3Xt had already been heard on the earlier pass over Europe, but that wasn’t a high enough pass to have strong enough signals for decoding. In a later pass, that was the case, telemetry was received and decoded, and all systems are fine with all things deployed. Congratulations to TU …
Following data recorded from some passes over Europe, decoding of the data by the Cubebug-2 team confirmed that Cubebug-2 is also alive and kicking.
Although the signal was to faint to decode the telemetry, Delfi-n3Xt (the successor to Delfi-C3) was also heard of. Congratulations!
And the next satellite has been heard; ZACUBE-1 gave perfect signs of life right over its commanding ground station in South Africa. Always good to get the call home 🙂
The team from Wuerzburg has also heard from their satellite UWE-3. Several beacon signals have been received. Congratulations
Passing over Delft just a short while ago, ‘our own baby’ TRITON-1 sent back its first messages home, acknowledging that it’s fully alive and likes the new environment 🙂
Already shortly after launch, FUNcube-1 was heard by the ground station in South Africa. Following a shallow pass by California, Dove-3 has been heard well by its developers at Planet Labs as well. Waiting for the rest of them.
Congratulations to all who now have their spacecraft in space!
Probably the last post from Yasny before launch, with internet going down in 5 minutes from the mission conference room… only 15 minutes left.
With only 35 minutes to go, we’re all set in the mission conference room at the launch site. Communication has been checked, most teams have already checked in through the various communication channels. Not much more we can do now but wait for the activities to really start about 10 …
