Balloon launch on Thursday 8/22/19

Upcoming Balloon Launch!

Thursday (8/22) The Kopernik Observatory and Science Center in Vestal NY is launching a high altitude balloon as part of their STEM Summer science camp! They have agreed to let me fly my SSTV payload, which has been updated with an SA868 transmitter chip and new code that should fix the saturation problem we had in the first flight!

Launch time is estimated for 9am. And again, if you could listen to 145.600 Mhz and decode photos and upload to that would be awesome! Hoping for some sweet high altitude photos this time!
