Good evening!
Just to report that FUNcube-1 is now back in autonomous mode after a great extended weekend in transponder operation. The spacecraft will now switch automatically between modes when it enters and leaves local eclipse.
We hope that everyone enjoyed operating via the transponder during FUNcube-1s first birthday weekend!
Greetings from the whole FUNcube team
PS – We have calculated that FUNcube-1 has now travelled approximately  237.5 million km  or very nearly from here to the sun and back again  (1.9AU) –WOW!
