AO-73 : Funcube-1

Spin Period
07 Jun 2019 = 132.3 seconds (from averaged panel temperatures)
08 Jun 2019 = 144.3 seconds (from averaged panel temperatures)
09 Jun 2019 = 162.6 seconds (from averaged panel temperatures)
10 Jun 2019 = 151.6 seconds (from averaged panel temperatures)
11 Jun 2019 = 134.7 seconds (from averaged panel temperatures)
12 Jun 2019 = 143.6 seconds (from averaged panel temperatures)
13 Jun 2019 = 157.1 seconds (from averaged panel temperatures)

During the week Dave G4DPZ downloaded the last 3 weeks of WOD’s for me to analyse.
Having analysed each orbit for the 22nd, 23rd, 24th and 25th May and calculated the spin
period using the +X Panel Temperature I now “appreciate” what is happening during each
orbit of AO-73. The reasoning as to “why” it is happening requires further research.
