Hi, I came across your website when looking for some other information.
Some other hams and I here at the university where I work have put together
a package to be launched this coming weekend, Oct. 31st. It will be
launched from Jacksons Mill, WV at approx. 8am. Frequencies will be 144.39
APRS N8RDT-11, 144.34 APRS K8LG-11, and a cross band repeater on 147.555
out/445.825 in with a 123.0 PL. We do not have a webpage or anything, just
a couple of guys launching a balloon..... If you want a mission name, call
it WV-1. THought I would let you know incase you wanted to put it on your
announcements page. Thanks,
Larry Rowe, N8RDT
