There is also a downloadable PDF version of the above Xcell issue 75 journal at http://www.xilinx.com/publications/archives/xcell/Xcell75.pdf Good article, AMSAT-UK is also building their own FunCube satellite and AMSAT-ZL is designing, building their own KwiwiSAT satellite both due to launch in late 2011. Biggest breakthrough is the FunCube Dongle by Howard Long which will allow licensed radio amateurs and academic schools a cheap method to receive and decode digital signals between 64MHz to 1,700MHz using Software Defined Radio. The more schools and universities become involved the better the future looks.
