My friend Andy from Melbourne, Australia is launching a balloon tomorrow. It is expected that the balloon will be sending back live images from over 30km altitude. We will be launching from the NSW country town of Deniliquin at 10am EDST. That is 2300Z Jan 7th.
I will be there with Jason assisting as will a few other of the regulars.
Here are some info for the launch:
– Payloads will include SSDV, APRS, RTTY and cutdown
– balloon tracking positions will be uploaded to spacenear.us
– SSDV images will be uploaded to ssdv.habhub.org.
– Expected altitude is more than 33km
You can track the Balloon on APRS on http://aprs.fi – I will send the callsign later as a comment on this page
Jason and i will be leaving about 1 hour after I post this story. You can track us on the APRS service with the callsign of VK2URB-7 as we travel to Deniliquin. We will probably stop on the way at a motel!
