FUNcube-1 (AO-73) is again transmitting telemetry. A restart took place during the 0930 UT pass over Europe.
The CubeSat had stopped transmitting at around 2018 UT on Wednesday, April 15.
The team is still investigating the situation, but have concluded from earlier telemetry analysis that it was safe to switch back to nominal operations.
During the 0930 UT pass over The Netherlands, Wouter PA3WEG commanded it back to nominal mode with full automatic mode switching.
At this time, there is no reason to believe this event was dangerous to the spacecraft, all systems were nominal and the battery is nearly full.
Many thanks for all the reports that the team have received.
