ITUpSAT1 cubesat reception with Funcube Dongle and Arrow antenna

This is the third satellite reception of a series recorded on Monday, February 28, 2011 using the Funcube Dongle software defined radio receiver and the Arrow II hand-held satellite antenna. The satellite is the ITUpSAT-1 cubesat transmitting with 100 mW FM CW and the recording was done in JO45KG during orbit 7593.

The Funcube Dongle can receive the spacecraft with very good signal to noise ratio. Good performance supporting the usability of the Funcube Dongle as a low cost VHF/UHF receiver for space communications.
