European Tour – Hopefully!

I am planning on launching from Cambridge on Saturday the 13th of April 2013. With updated code and a map of where APRS in the air is permitted the payload being flow will include the APRS transmitter :

IMG_1211With a pack of 6 x AA batteries (3.6V out seen in pink gaffer in the background ) the payload should have about a weeks power possibly longer.

Assembled in a hollow polystyrene ball with antennas for 70cms (1/4 wave) and 2 meters ( Slim Jim suspended underneth the payload) comes in at fairly portly (for me) 180g :


This will be suspended under a 1600g Hwoyee balloon filled with H2 for an ascent rate of about 1.5m/s. Watch from about 10am on Saturday :
