Kuss Middle School High Altitude Balloon Launch, June 19, 2013

Roland Daignault, N1JOY writes on BCRA list:

This morning the Kuss Middle School (Fall River, MA) is conducting a high altitude balloon launch with the intent of going all the way to burst altitude. Launch will be at approximately 10:30 from Northford, CT, and projected landing will be in Mt. Hope Bay for a boat recovery. You can track the balloon two ways with SPOT, a commercial cellular based system similar to APRS, and with APRS directly, or over the Internet.

GPS SPOT tracking

APRS (ham radio)

Both sites will be linked up at the Kuss website:  http://www.fallriverschools.org/kuss.cfm

You can follow our progress on Ham Radio on the Fall River 145.150 repeater, PL 123.0.
