FUNcube reboot

Hi All,

FUNcube-1 has shut down its transmitter around 2018 UTC yesterday.
We have reasons to believe this may have been due to the large geomagnetic storm hitting earth at the moment.

The team is still investigating the situation, but we have concluded from earlier telemetry analysis that it was safe to switch back to nominal operations.
During the 09:30 UTC pass over The Netherlands, I have commanded it back to nominal mode with full automatic mode switching.

At this time, there is no reason to believe this event was dangerous to the spacecraft, all systems were nominal and the battery is nearly full.

Please enjoy FUNcube-1!
