Hi All, Just to confirm that FUNcube-1 was commanded back into autonomous mode this evening at around 22:00 UTC. We are planning on switching back email@example.com
Alan BA1DU has provided some additional information on the July launch and has confirmed that CAS-2A and CAS-2B, also with linear transponders, will bem5aka

AMSAT-UK’s FUNcube is an educational CubeSat project with the goal of enthusing and educating young people about radio, space, physics and electronics. It will support the educational Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) initiatives.
The target audience consists of primary and secondary school pupils and the FUNcube satellite will feature a 145 MHz telemetry beacon which will provide a strong signal for the pupils to receive.
A SDR receiver, FUNcube Dongle, has been developed. It is intended that this will be connected to the USB port of a laptop to display FUNcube satellite telemetry and messages in an interesting way.
We welcome you to share your thoughts, pictures and anything you would like to add to this project, please post any question you have. For the latest on the FUNcube SDR dongle visit http://www.funcubedongle.com/
FUNcube will carry a 435 to 145 MHz linear transponder that will have 300 mW PEP output and can be used by Radio Amateurs worldwide for SSB and CW communications.
Measuring just 10 x 10 x 10 cm, and with a mass of 1kg, it will be the smallest ever satellite to carry a linear transponder and the choice of frequencies will enable Radio Amateurs to use their existing VO-52, DO-64, HO-68 equipment.
