Hi Mark,

As an update for our flight, we will be flying AE0SS-12 for our 300th flight.  In addition, we will fly Paul’s  Kd4sth -1 (SSID to be verified).  That will be his 200th flight.

Marty, thanks for the info and exciting to hear that #300 for EOSS will coincide with GPSL 2020.  An amazing milestone!


I think the larger group would be interested in hearing about your ADS-B setup, so even if you want to do an extemporaneous 15 minutes on the subject, that's fine.  I've had an ADS-B receiver set up on a Pi 3B since January and have wondered what it'd take to do that on a balloon.

Hello Mark,

EOSS Plans to fly in coordination with your times which look good at 8am MDT.  We will feed video into the GPSL zoom session for those who might be interested.  Congratulations to Paul for his 200th flight  This will be EOSS 300th flight, are glad to celebrate with the virtual GPSL program.  I will provide details on our frequencies and ADS-B information.   We are now sending ADS-B to help the FAA allow us to fly in cloud cover.  Details later.


At this time, we do not have a talk, but we have some interest.  I will advise. 


Good luck with these hard times.

There was a discussion on the GPSL reflector about the launch time.,,,20,0,0,0::recentpostdate%2Fsticky,,,20,2,0,74408777



“I'm thinking about setting a 1400Z launch time for Saturday - that would be 10am ET, 9am CT, 8am MT, and 7am PT/Arizona.  I don't know if we'll have any participants in the Pacific time zone - if not, we could make it an hour earlier.   We probably don't want to go much later for our Eastern Time participants.  Anyone planning to fly a balloon for this, please chime in with your considerations.


As always, suggestions for how to make this a great virtual GPSL are welcome.

Looks like we are in alignment with Mark.

Subject: EOSS300 launch time


Regarding the time for a simultaneous launch across the US from 7am to 10am, I think that would work out to 7am PDT = 8am MDT = 9am CDT = 10am EDT.  So, we should plan on an 8am launch time for EOSS300 rather than the 9am we decided at the meeting last night.
