According to the various listings, Herington has a repeater at 385' AGL
on 147.135+. Some listings indicate a PL tone of 88.5 Hz. If we get
out of simplex range of each other and aren't into the Manhattan
147.255+ repeater well, we can QSY there to coordinate before launch
and after landing.
Would each team prefer their own simplex frequency and use the 2m
repeater only for inter-team comm, or would you prefer a common channel
for all teams? I personally would like to stay on 70cm for voice while
the balloons are in the air so that I don't desense 2m data reception.
However, ANSR uses 70cm for data and may want 2m for voice.
We can do this by e-mail now, or maybe have a session before we break
for the day to come up with a chase team comm plan.
