gpredict trsp file for FUNCUBE

Add a file to the ~/.config/Gpredict/trsp directory, with the following contents:

[FUNCUBE BPSK Telem]
DOWN_LOW=145935000


[FUNCUBE U/V]
UP_LOW=435150000
UP_HIGH=435130000
DOWN_LOW=145950000
DOWN_HIGH=145970000
INVERT=true



Depending on where or when you got your keps, you may have a different Catalogue Number for FUNCUBE-1.  Create a file called CAT_NUM.trsp. where CAT_NUM is the catalogue number for FUNCUBE-1.  I have two trsp files, one called 39417.trsp and the other 312.trsp, as I have two sets of keps for FUNCUBE-1 right now. UPDATE 1st Jan 2014: The latest recommended keps (referenced here) are for catalogue number 39444. In gpredict, this is known as 2013-066AE.
  
With the keps for FUNCUBE added to gpredict and with the really cool recently added support for hamlib compatible remote control of gqrx it's easy enough to find FUNCUBE with a Funcube Dongle Pro+ as a receiver.  I'm using a homebrew 2m Turnstile-With-Reflectors in the loft as an antenna.


Update:
I'm going to have a listen for ChargerSat-1 (more) too.  The trsp file for that is called 99912.trsp and has the following contents.


[ChargeSat-1 Telem]
DOWN_LOW=437405000


Here are (or were) the keps.

You mixed UP_LOW and UP_HIGH which confuses gpredict. I fixed this in my version and now it works fine.
