STRaND-1 Cubesat

Right I have put the CB to one side, it has sadly proved very frustrating but more on that another time.

The current buzz are the newly launched satellites, including STRaND-1

This satellite has received quite a bit of media coverage by virtue of the fact it is carrying an Android Google Nexus-One smartphone as part of its payload. (BBC new article)

So I've blown the dust off the the FUNCube Dongles and removed the cobwebs of the 70cm Yagi and am planning on waving it at the sky in the early evening trying to capture some of the telemetry transmissions on 437.568MHz.
