BASE 101 will be flying tomorrow.  We will be using a tandem 600 gram balloon launch with a cut-away of one balloon at 120 mbar (about 50 kft).  This system should have a very rapid climb at launch, about 1300 ft/min, with a marked decrease to about 500 ft/min after cutaway. 


In addition to the normal APRS beacon, W9YJ-11 on 144.39, there will be a DF beacon on 433.92 MHz.


Thanks for your support,

Howard KC9QBN
