    Wisconsin HAB balloon launch Sat. 6/11/2016
    From Joe N9UX:
    "We are "go for launch" tomorrow, June 11.

    Setup begins about 8AM.

    Launch location:
    North Park
    Allison Park Drive
    Richland Center, WI 53581

    GPS: 43.347298, -90.388291

    Launch will be streamed on Facebook video this time, on the Wisconsin HAB page: https://www.facebook.com/WisconsinHAB

    APRS will be beaconing KB9UFO-11 with the balloon icon.
    Search aprs.fi for the above call sign.

    Voice beacon on 146.430 MHz at 50 milliwatts.
    The beacon is 30 seconds on, 30 seconds off.
    Should be able to hear it for 50+ miles.

    Plans remain the same, chase net on FM38 repeater
    http://fm38.org/tiki-view_faq.php?faqId=1#q7
    (check their site for all the frequencies, you will definitely want
    at least Baraboo and Delafield programmed).
    146.550 ground simplex (if needed)."

    I attended last year, but due to family obligations, I won't be able to participate.
    Just thought someone here might be interested in following the balloon via the internet.

    73,
    Tom KC9ONY
