You could have came to me and I would have found a way to get an RTrak-HAB to you for this flight.  Not only would it be a proven HAB platform flying, but it DOES work above the 18K limit and will remained lock for the flight.  I just don't understand why these cobbled together payloads are used for such important flights.

Launch from Lancaster PA, mild winds.
Should go up to 100k feet and then come down not far from launch.  Be heard across 15 states.
Though it is a non high altitude GPS and FIX will be stuck above 18k feet until it comes back down.
Callsign is W3ADO-11 and it will be on 144.39
If anyone KNOWS that a Tinytrack3 and GPS2 from Byonics will *not* re-aquire when it comes back below 18k feet please let us know NOW.
Thanks  The rest of the payload costs $10,000 and we don’t want to lose it.  It is a different schools project that noone else can access, so I wont bother with details.
