FUNcube-1 Frequencies now confirmed

November 1, 2010

News Update 1st May 2012

As we now have a confirmed launch from Yasny later this year, we have had to carefully coordinate our planned operating frequencies in order to minimise the risk of interference between us and other payloads on the same launch.

We have therefore recently proposed a revised set of frequencies to the IARU Frequency Coordination Panel and they have today confirmed the following:

Inverting linear transponder:
Uplink            435.150 – 435.130 MHz
Downlink        145.950 – 145.970 MHz

Telemetry:     145.935 MHz   BPSK

Please ignore any information that has been circulated previously!
