On Thursday, June 11, BBC TV News featured radio amateur Dr Chris Bridges 2E0OBC who was explaining about the FUNcube-1 CubeSat and FUNcube Dongle SDR at the Goonhilly Space Operations training event.
Twenty-four delegates from across Europe and the United States are at Goonhilly Earth Station in Cornwall to learn about satellite communications, and how to control orbiting spacecraft.
The four-day course, which runs until Friday, June 12, is aimed at giving science graduates with an interest in working in the space industry a first-hand idea of operating satellites. Staff said they believed it was the only course of its type in Europe teaching how to operate such equipment.
