DELMARVA Hams: We are going to launch an APRS balloon at about 1300 on Friday if we get it all together by then. It will drift at about 5000 feet with a radio range of only about 100 miles or so. It has a wireless 2.4 GHz live camera on Channel 1.
We will command cut-down somewhere over the eastern shore to assure recovery before the Atlantic...
We will probably use the 146.82 (T156) Salsbury repeater during the chase?

You'll probably need some kind of 2.4 GHz dish to see it beyond a mile or so. We have a 4' dish on a van with an AZ/EL tracker that we hope to be able to follow it with.
