Michael, KD7LMO, and Mark, NG0X,  have teamed together on this very
ambitious flight.  So, Thursday afternoon, into the evening and all day
Friday and maybe longer, follow the flight of KD7LMO-11 on 6 meters and HF
PSK-31.  The frequencies are below.  So, fire up the 6 meter and HF gear and
get it working for APRS.


Great plan for a for a special flight.  Best wishes and calm winds at
launch.  I'll be following and I-gate on 50.62 MHz.


Good luck and 73..

Arizona Near Space Research (ANSR) in conjunction with ES-OS
(Experimental Sub-Orbital Society) is pleased to announce the flight
of ANSR-28.  This high altitude balloon flight will take place on
Thursday, December 29th at 3:00 PM MST (2200 UTC). The launch site
will be announced closer to the flight date and will be based on winds

The balloons will be two zero pressure balloons designed to ascend and
float for an extended period of time.  Ballast will be released to
maintain altitude.  A cut down mechanism will release one of the
balloon as it approaches populated areas on the east coast.

The flight will be attempt to set a number records as part of the 2005
Onset ARHAB (Amateur Radio High Altitude Ballooning Record)
competition. The portion we are attempting on this flight includes:

1. Longest Great Circle Distance
2. Longest Mission Duration
3. Greatest telemetry Distance (50 MHz and above)
4. Greatest telemetry distance (HF)

The following is the payload frequency plan:

APRS once a minute
50.62 MHz packet at 57 seconds UTC time via KD7LMO-11

14070.450 KHz PSK-31
At 0, 10, 20, 30, 40, and 50 minutes starting at 00 seconds UTC time
