Also in GB2RS this week…

Category 5 Cyclone Pam caused severe damage when it hit the Pacific nation of Vanuatu last weekend. Recovery is expected to take a very long time. The idyllic location is a haven for tourists and DXpeditioners, with all those who have been there in the past struggling to recognise damaged landmarks now being shown on TV news. Like other countries in the region very few local radio amateurs exist, and no communication has been heard from many islands.

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 21 November, 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.
