Balloon Launch - Sat. October 19th, 2019

UPDATE: Congratulations to Mike and the entire Balloon team! They had a beautiful day for this flight.  The balloon traveled almost 70 miles in just over 2 hours reaching altitudes over 100,000 feet! Go see the video of the launch and trip at the You-tube link referenced below!

The Amateur Radio Club at Cornell, W2CXM,  in cooperation with the Five Rivers Council of the Boy Scouts of America will be hosting a High Altitude Balloon launch during their 62nd annual JOTA Jamboree on the Air event on Saturday, October 19, 2019 at 10:00am.  

The balloon will be launched from the JOTA event in Howard, NY.  The payload is expected to reach 100,000 feet and land approximately 70 miles downrange in the vicinity of Richford, NY.  If all of our technology works, we will be live streaming live video from the payload for the duration of the flight.  

The stream will be available on youtube beginning at 9:45am here:   
Additional tracking links will be in the “Description” of the youtube page.
