The FUNcube team are pleased to announce that the Data Warehouse has received two million packets of telemetry data from ground stations around the world.
FUNcube-1 (AO-73) was launched on November 21, 2013 and since then radio amateurs and schools have been receiving the telemetry packets transmitted by the satellite and passing them to the AMSAT-UK Data Warehouse for analysis and storage.
There are normally several people uploading the same packet but for the 2 millionth it was an individual:
• Carlos Eavis, G3VHF
The Data Warehouse statistics as of 09:53 UT on March 15, 2015 were:
Number of registered users: 1529
Number of active users (data received in last two weeks): 193
Number of active users since launch: 818
Number of packets transmitted by satellite since deployment: 8312304 (2.13 GB)
Number of packets uploaded by users before de-duplication: 8539662(2.19 GB)
Number of packets stored in warehouse: 2000000 (512 MB)
Number of packets recovered & stored – Time – Coverage
