My new PC boards arrived this week so I decided to try out the new board
with a flight test. This new board can be configured to do HF WSPR as
well and I may launch that one tomorrow or sometime later next week. My
project tonight is to build a 3 gram 20 meter HF dipole out of braided
fishing line and 34 gauge magnet wire.
The Skytracker 5 flight that I just launched today at sunset:
APRS on 144.390 and also 144.340 MHz FM: WB8ELK-6
It will switch to the European APRS frequency of 144.800 MHz if it makes
it across the pond which will take about 3 days to France if all goes well.
This one has both a LiPo battery as well as solar panels.
