Yup, its a thing! Carlos KD9OLN and I talk about how he #HamsHarder
Come check it out!
I was expecting to see a cool video of making contacts while floating down under a canopy. But after scrubbing back and forth all I see are a few photos, and chatter. I’m not going to let it drone on for an hour to see 30 seconds of jump video (if it exists).
I appreciate the effort that goes into these productions, but for heaven’s sake keep them reasonably short and to the point.
If at first you don't succeed, Skydiving is not for you.....
I wonder if there is any Doppler effect ? HI HI .... ..
Nice! I started thinking about how we could create the doppler effect on one of his jumps... He'd be pretty dizzy.
A hold my Beer, and Watch this moment??
I don't have Facebook or Twitter, so I hope that Carlos posts on QRZ when he
is going to go jumping again. Sounds like some folks in the Milwaukee area
were making contact or at least hearing him in that first jump. Couldn't
believe he didn't have a strap on the FT3DR...that's an expensive radio!
Later videos show a long strap to go around his neck I guess.
Last year, I contacted a parachute mobile in California...via Echolink.
That was interesting.
What's the time stamp of the parachute jumping radio video? It IS a YouTube and all that... right?
I scrolled and saw nothing about anyone in the air making a QSO via parachute
Well, it would have been nice to have a link in the video or something, but I just went to
Youtube and searched KD9OLN. I eventually got to the channel for Carlos:
a tower 14,000 feet high... fantastic
It would be worth trying with a QRP (818 or 705), the only problem is logging the contacts .
