Re: GPSL cancellation

K. Mark Caviezel
 

Shucks, Jack, sorry to hear the news.

I had been thinking about lofting a low altitude
floater from Denver to Manhattan, but the critical
mass for that project just hasn't formed, and indeed I
will be out of the country July 5th and onwards.

If any of the GPSL participant groups want to try
their hand at a modest sized zero pressure
polyethelene floater, just let me know. I'd be happy
to provide a bag for the GPSL event. Check photos
from EOSS 55 mission archieves to see one of my home
built bags in action.

GPSL cancellation

aa0p <aa0p@...>
 

I am sorry, but an emergency reschedule at work has caused me to
cancel my particpation at GPSL 2002. As this project is of National
need, I will not be able to attend your fine symposium. I will
however, endeaver to get our ANSR video up to the EOSS team and I
hope it will tell our story here in dry, dry, dry, hot, hot, Arizona.
I will also write a tribute to Bill Brown from my early memories of
his projects and the inspriration he provided to us in Colorado and
that we still feel in Arizona. Sorry for the cancellation.

Frequencies for WB8ELK Balloon for GPSL

Bill Brown
 

I am still thinking about the payload I'll be launching...scavenging parts
from a dozen past payloads sitting in my garage at the moment. Currently I
plan to fly an altitude record attempt with APRS GPS on 147.45 MHz
(alternates are 144.34, 144.36 or 144.39) and camera video on 434 MHz
ATV....I'll also have a 20 milliwatt 28.322 MHz CW transmitter as well for
tracking.

Bill Brown
 

Sorry to hear about that Jack,

I was looking forward to seeing you again....guess I'll just have to make
the trip to hot hot dry dry Arizona from hot hot muggy muggy Alabama!!!

I'll try to send a balloon your way this Summer special delivery balloon
mail.

EOSS "Standard" Frequencies

lcerney <lcerney@...>
 

Hello all,

EOSS "standard" frequencies are:

Telemetry 144.34 MHz
Tracking Beacon 147.555 MHz
xBand Down 147.555 MHZ
Up 445.975 MHz
ATV 426.25 MHz
Simplex in field 146.58 MHz

I also suggest a back channel frequency for each group to keep
tactical chatter off the repeater. EOSS could use our xBand Up link
frequency of 445.975 simplex.

This is a preliminary listing. Many Freqs can be changed if needed.
I'm sure Mike, W5VSI, will have more to add when he gets on the list.

GPSL Logos

paul.verhage@...
 

Let me try again. This time the logo and saying are in Corel Draw.
Feel free to do with the logos as you wish, but make sure it's not
something embarassing. I plan to bring a t-shirt with the logos.

Frequency coordination

Mark Conner <n9xtn@...>
 

Hi everybody,

It's been a busy few weeks, and it's not getting any better for
me. In addition to the GPSL, I have a design review for a
software project next week, we are doing some minor renovation,
painting, and installing new floor and carpet in the house in
June, and two weeks after the GPSL I'll be getting married.

I think we are gravitating towards the use of 144.34 MHz for
primary APRS use for all payloads that will support it. I have
been told that it's also used for FM simplex for ATV DX
coordination, but most balloon groups use it for non-.39 work.
ANSR uses 70cm for downlinks, so they'll be the exception.
Backup beacons can use 144.39 MHz if desired, keeping in mind
that you should keep the rate down (1x/minute or less) so we
don't hog the channel.

We have used 147.585 MHz for SSTV in the past in case anyone
plans to fly that mode. A simplex repeater can use 446.300 MHz
which appears to be pretty clear in this area.

I believe we have frequency information for ANSR, TVNSP, KD0FW,
and NSTAR, though not yet compiled in one place. I would like to
get info from EOSS, WB8ELK, HABITAT/SkyLab, and Traveler. I
don't think we have reps from Traveler and EOSS on the GPSL list,
so I'll see about getting them to come up on the net here. If
you've posted your info elsewhere, please copy it here to the
GPSL list so we have it archived. See
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/GPSL/files/ANSRFreqPlan.txt for an
example. You can either post it or upload it to the files area.

Re: July 4th weekend

Mark Conner <n9xtn@...>
 

The launch will be at the Johnson Near Space Center, which is
about 10 miles south of Manhattan. The main feature of the JNSC
is a large storage building where we can fill 4-6 balloons inside
out of the wind.

Take a look at the pictures linked from this site - there are
several taken at the launch site.

Thanks for the info..

The web site told me what I needed.. It is at K-State.. My
father went
there.. My grandparents live in Clay Center.. I am going to
fly to KC,
get a car, and go visit my grandparents for the 4th, then go to
Manhattan
for the conf and launch.. Since it is close enough, I will stay
with my
grandparents and save on the hotel bill. I know the area much
better than
you would expect for someone from New Jersey....

Also, what is JNSC and where exactly is the launch from???

I believe both Manhattan and Topeka have limited air service,
but
it's probably expensive. It's probably more cost-effective
to
travel to Kansas City (MCI) and drive a rental car the 120
miles
(2 hrs) from the airport to Manhattan.

Your return date depends on how sure you want to be of seeing
the
launches. If you go back Sunday afternoon, you could chase
with
us on Saturday if we get off the ground, or if it ends up
being
on Sunday you'd at least see the launch.

If I could get a tank that would be great also. I will be driving my truck to the gpsl and might be able to help haul the tanks. I may not be able to get off work on Friday early so I might not get there till about 6:00 or 7:00pm. Keep in touch and thanks de kd0fw

I have carried one tank in my car, I should be able to get at least two in there.
It might take me a few trips but if no one closer, I'll do it. They will be okay
at Johnson Near Space Center right?

The center locks, so the tanks will be safe.

100k feet?

K. Mark Caviezel
 

7.4% of flights going to over 100k feet is a heck of a
lot more frequent than most anything else that flies.
Paul points out that many missions don't realistically
expect to break 100k, but if the flight operators
'simply' put some extra money into a larger balloon,
then it would happen with more frequency.
I like Paul's slogan for the GPSL.
