Re: COVID-19 and GPSL

Right now, the HamSci group is holding a virtual conference using Zoom (Yes, University of Scranton paid for the subscription; there's gotta be a way) in Webinar mode. Up to 100 presenters, and up to 1000 online attendees. Audio and video quality have been very good, and they leave it up during the breaks for group discussions.

I'm totally OK with virtual meeting and presentation.  If we do a launch that day, I may attempt to livestream it again.  I had decent results with a 1.3ghz transmitter on my flight last Fall.  We had video all the way to apogee, though not beautiful, it definitely worked.  That might be fun to watch for some stranded with no balloon to chase.

I propose, everyone we have the virtual meeting online using one of the many programs that do that sort of thing.

The when it comes to launch day we all launch from our usual launch sites.

I'd still love do do our EBBE flight, but have yet to find a willing partner group to try it.
