Following John Cooke's talk on amateur radio applications for the Raspberry Pi microcomputer at the March 8th meeting (see report below), John now reports that he has successfully received the FUNcube-1 satellite using a Raspberry Pi 3. He writes: 'Just managed the next stage of my satellite project successfully. It uses the DVB-T dongle I showed at the talk, and the Raspberry Pi 3 (at present). I'm really impressed that the satellite is so easy to receive with the dongle- I'm using a turnstile antenna for 145.9MHz outdoors'.
