The FUNcube project is being undertaken by a team of (less than 10) experienced volunteers drawn from radio amateur members of AMSAT-UK, AMSAT-NL and others and is part funded by the Radio Communications Foundation – a Registered Charity.

While this handbook refers mainly to FUNcube-1, readers should note that similar hardware and software was provided to the UKube-1 spacecraft (sponsored by the UK Space Agency) as a sub-system which will provide almost the same functionality.
