Re: Share a lift?

That's the plan, I will provide a Tracker for you. This'll be my 196th flight. So I'm looking forward to it. Thanks

So there has been a lot of chatter.  I just want to make sure we're still on the same page.  As I understand it, you're providing a tracker at callsign KD4STH-3 for me to use with my flight.  I think you have some others going on too, so I just wanted to confirm that we're still "on" to put one on my payload string.  It's not a big deal if not, but I just want to make sure I'm not missing anything.  I've got plenty of trackers, so if you made other plans, it's no bother at all.  Just let me know.

Also, I've moved my other tracker that was on xx:40 off to xx:50, as documented in the latest spreadsheet Mike has been circulating.

I would be happy to be a backup tracker for you. The tracker is a StratoTrack and it weighs 9 oz. There are four cords to connect it to the payload string.

It's KD4STH-3 and transmits APRS at 144.390.

I'd be happy to have a stowaway.  If it's light enough, I could use it as a second tracker on my little "drop" payload that I'll be releasing between 90-95000 feet.  Otherwise, I could stick it in one of my two payload boxes as a second backup.  Either is fine with me.

I've got a third and light weight tracker that I'd like to see about sharing a balloon. If I can, that would be flight 195 for me. Does anyone have space on their balloon for an extra tracker?
