AO-73 : Funcube-1

Spin Period

07 Feb 2020 = 34.5 seconds (from averaged panel temperatures)
08 Feb 2020 = 43.1 seconds (from averaged panel temperatures)
09 Feb 2020 = 52.6 seconds (from averaged panel temperatures)
10 Feb 2020 = 41.8 seconds (from averaged panel temperatures)
11 Feb 2020 = 47.5 seconds (from averaged panel temperatures)
12 Feb 2020 = 135.6 seconds (from averaged panel temperatures)
13 Feb 2020 = 48.5 seconds (from averaged panel temperatures)

This last week AO-73 has continued to rotate with reversed spin rotation.
During a number of passes visible over VK it was noted the spin oscillating between the normal and reversed spin direction. AO-73 continues to tumble.

Spin Period

31 Jan 2020 = 16.6 seconds (from averaged panel temperatures)
01 Feb 2020 = 18.4 seconds (from averaged panel temperatures)
02 Feb 2020 = 19.2 seconds (from averaged panel temperatures)
03 Feb 2020 = 21.0 seconds (from averaged panel temperatures)
04 Feb 2020 = 23.1 seconds (from averaged panel temperatures)
05 Feb 2020 = 24.4 seconds (from averaged panel temperatures)
06 Feb 2020 = 28.2 seconds (from averaged panel temperatures)

During the week prior to the 31st January AO-73 started to tumble with increased daily levels of tumble. On the 31st January AO-73 reversed spin rotation for 3 days, reverted back to normal for one day and has been in reversed spin rotation for the last 3 days of this reporting week.
Suffice to say AO-73 continues to tumble.

Many thanks to Terry for his downloading and analysis during my time away from the home QTH.
Greatly appreciate his assistance.
