Sure there is... just get an extremely accurate upper air wind model,
merge that with a super accurate weather prediction, determine exactly
how the balloon and payload are going to survive, place in a brown
paper bag, and give it a really good shake.

There are wind prediction sites out there, one of which I have posted
links to numerous times over the past couple days. Have you looked at
it? You can get an idea of where the winds are blowing. Just watch
where the lines go. Of course you need to keep looking at each new
predicition as you advance the time frame...

Weather could drop the payload into the Pacific well before landfall.

There are far too many variables involved, and the prediction
timeframe is too long to be able to make much more than a WAG at where
(or even whether) the payload will make landfall. If you are looking
to have someone say, "Turn on your radio at 4:32 am on July 23, and
you'll hear the payload.", you're not going to get that.

If you want the best chance of hearing the payload when it makes
landfall, turn on your receiver now. Of course, there are already
hundreds of stations out there listening for the payload already. If
you are located somewhere that there's no APRS network, then adding
your receiver to the local area will not only help listen for M0XER-4,
but any other APRS users in the area.

You can also run predictions on predict.habhub.org... just put an
extremely slow descent rate into the predictor.

Here's one I just ran.

http://predict.habhub.org/#!/uuid=c6c0224836f0d3a30f6926e7700dd8e0850b000f

Because the predict engine can't run on past data, I had to run on
future winds. This puts the payload running back down the Japanese
coast (which we know it's not doing), and then finally across the
Pacific, teasing the west coast of the USA before looking to start
making landfall on Vancouver Island.

Here's one I like even better!

Re: Moxer 4 out of range

Alan Adamson
 

This is exactly what I've done in my tracker and it's firmware.

The code in my tracker actually does track the ISS in real time. I load a current set of TLE's before flight and on each second, it calculates the lat/lon of the ISS and determines if it is above the horizon of my tracker. Altitude is also used in this calculation. I did this so that I could also determine the doppler shift. The frequency that I set when I transmit to the ISS is also doppler corrected.

After the position determination update for the ISS, there is a set of logic that determines a priority of which frequency/target should be used to beacon via.

Because the ISS is always available, and the only issue is if its in your horizon or not. In my logic, that is my first choice. If it's time to beacon, and the ISS is in view, the tracker switches to 145.825mhz (plus of minus doppler) and it beacons there. I've not tried a sat-gate beacon yet, just a beacon through the ISS gateway (ARISS).

If the ISS isn't in view, then it walks through a set of geofences to determine *if* and on what frequency it should beacon.

There are also places that I call *no mans land* where it wouldn't matter if you beaconed or not, no one would be around to listen. As much as I can I've identified those and save the battery/effort if within one of those areas.

The above uses a set of cascading if statements so it's pretty easy to walk through them and as features allow, they can be fleshed out further with other exotic ways of getting a position report out.

Specific to the ISS - A couple of quick experiential comments about the ISS and beacons through it. I personally use 10mW for my regular terrestrial beacons, and when the ISS is overhead I use the max power that I can on a 2V vcc - about 35mW. I have yet to have a beacon heard, relayed, or confirmed via the ISS! With such small power and no gain in the antenna, while I have an altitude advantage, it's not worked so far... Too many mobile and fixed users that are running 10-100's of watts (which seems to be the norm)..... But I'll keep trying, the codes already written, and working, so why not. :).

Have a look at the last i-gates to push the packets to the APRS-IS

I had run across some information about the flights previously, where there was a description of the profile changes that happen when moving over different regions. The frequency changes, I think the path changes, and there's a suffix on the status that indicates which configuration profile is being used.

I've searched and can't find that discussion though...

There's a good stretch over the Atlantic where the jet stream is up
around 170 km/h. Around Hokkaido there was a bit of a back eddy
happening, which is why the payload took so long to transit the area.
I'm hoping that the payload gets sucked into the edge of the jet
stream and can zip along at a fairly decent rate.

BTW, I'd be good with WIDE7-7... we ignore that path for the most
part, all of my digipeaters won't support it. Besides, we know that a
no-hop path works perfectly well with 10mW! Our i-gates will pump the
signal into the APRS-IS stream no matter what path is used.

Let's hope for more great weather, and a complete circumnavigation of the globe!

What's the code added on at the end of the status when over North

Can I get 3 days, and off the coast of Vancouver Island?

I'm giving it some extra time for zig-zagging along with the jetstream, and averaging about 100 km/h.

I'd really like to see it swing by our neck of the woods just so we can say "Hi!".

We'll happily pass it along across the continent, and send it on it's way back home!

1. How close to a record is this flight?
2. Evidently it avoided the missiles in Ukraine.

The update on this flight stopped. Can I assume it simply flew out of range of any land-based receiver?

Any bets on when it will show up again?
