Delfi-C3 has celebrated its 6th birthday on the 28th of April.
The spacecraft is still operational, telemetry only, on 145.870 USB
Delfi-C3 has exceeded its mission lifetime by six times now, and on-board telemetry still does not indicate degradation in performance.
So far, our distributed ground station network (DGSN) has collected 2037513 frames as of today, received by 376 registered radio amateurs and many more on the guest account, using the free RASCAL software. This would not have been possible without your continued support.
The original team of students has long graduated, and delfi-c3 operations are done by very few volunteers. We continue to monitor the live telemetry in our spare time.
This small team is pictured below:
Not pictured is Nils von Storch, a TU Delft student that is spending lots of his own time to keep the Delfi-C3 ground station in good shape and tracks various objects including our bird!
