High altitude balloon news

| November 30, 2018

On 6 December 2018, a team from hi-impact on the Wirral will launch another high altitude balloon, in conjunction with pupils from St Bridget’s Primary School in West Kirby.

Once again they will launch from Welshpool.

They are hoping as many local amateurs and SWLs as possible will assist in feeding the data into HABHUB, using the DL-FLDIGI software.

They will be launching at around 10.45am using a licence-exempt transmitter with the call sign STBRIDGET on 434.650MHz USB and RTTY, 50Baud, 425Hz shift, 7 bits, no parity, 2 stop bits.
