Up, up, and away....( okay, sing that song to yourself....if you remember it )
This is regarding the next Wisconsin High Altitude Balloon Launch # 5

From Joe N9UX: (with some editing by me, KC9ONY)

We are on track for launch #5, this Saturday March 11. We're watching the weather closely, and will send out another email if we need to postpone.

Setup begins about 8AM.

Launch location:
 (same as last time)

North Park, Allison Park Drive, Richland Center, WI 53581

GPS: 43.347298, -90.388291

Launch and chase will be streamed live on Facebook video again, on the Wisconsin HAB page.

APRS will be beaconing N9UX-11 with the balloon icon. If you want to filter on on the N9UX-11 packets only, you can use a decode PL of 103.5. If you want to share a link to!mt=roadmap&z= 11&call=a%2FN9UX-11&timerange= 3600&tail=3600

Foxhunt voice beacon will be on 146.430 FM, with the recorded message. 

Signal reports from APRS or the voice beacon can be sent to Please include time and your location on the report.

Chase net plan should be familiar, it will be on the FM38 repeater (check their site for all the frequencies, they have a new site in Madison which should help us out!)

If we need it for the ground search, have 146.550 MHz simplex programmed in your HT.
