MCubed contains to beacon reliably and indicating good power health. Unfortunately, we have not been able to establish two way communication. We are not alone in this challenge as E1P is also having a similar difficulty.
This week, we should complete our ground station upgrade here at FXB to increase our SNR by 3-6 dB. Continue Reading »
MCubed continues to grow stronger in its beacons, but we do not yet have two way communication with the satellites. Beacons are being received in California, Japan and Europe. Thanks for all the tracking support!
The beacons show that the satellite continues to be power positive. Four of the six panels are producing Continue Reading »
MCubed continues to strengthen in beacon transmission output. HAMs in Japan and Germany are currently decoding packets. We have had little success in decoding at our stations in Michigan due to several ground station inefficiencies. We are working to upgrades those ASAP.
MCubed battery health is good, and it is fully charged. Our current plan Continue Reading »
