Balloon launch
« on: May 09, 2014, 08:03:31 PM »
I was thinking that maybe we could get someone from another club that was involved in a recent
balloon launch science project.   They were running APRS.   This was with the MRAC and was
using the call sign W9RH-11.   It launched from Baraboo, WI, and ended up in Lake Michigan.
It was exciting to monitor, as it went out over the lake, then back inland, and then back over the lake.

I understand that the MRAC had a presentation at a recent meeting, but still waiting for pictures
from the gentleman and his son who did the science project.   BTW, they are interested in getting
their amateur radio license as well.
