Re: AV Equipment for GPSL

Ralph Wallio, W0RPK <wallio@...>
 

Paul is in Manhattan but might not be reading GPSL traffic. He recently
confirmed that we will have a PC and projector and it is reasonable to
assume the required VGA connection could be moved over to another laptop PC.
Paul had previously arranged for a VCR and it is reasonable to assume it
could feed video to the projector.

Does anyone have a firm list of AV equipment for the presentations?
Will we have an LCD projector? VCR? laptop connection for a
projector?

Also, thanks to all those helping to get everything organized. Looks
like it will be a good conference. Hope we get a good turn out.

Subject: [GPSL] Time slot rundown

Here's what I have for everyone's slot information.  Let me know
if something's not correct.

KD0FW:  Using DF for recovery

Traveler:  Not time-slotted, interval is quasi-random.  Zack,
what's the approximate interval?

HABITAT: Will be using a MIM on 144.34, fixed time interval set
to 65 seconds.  Interval to be tested.

ANSR:  Repeater can periodically QSY to 144.34 if repeater not in
use.  Mike, you can have the time slot from :24 to :35
(previously for HABITAT) for this if you wish - let me know what
you decide.

TVNSP: GPGGA, GPRMC, GPGSV, and BS2 output from :00 to :11

WB8ELK: APRS data from :12 to :23

NSTAR: APRS posits containing lat/lon/course/speed/alt/vertical
velocity and a telemetry frame from :36 to :47

EOSS: GPRMC; GPGGA, GPGSA  from :48 to :59

I think we'd prefer there not be any ground APRS transmissions on
144.34 until all the balloons are on the ground - we'll have a
busy frequency as it is!  Looks like ~13 packets every minute.
Updated table at

See you all in Manhattan on Friday.

GPSL forecast update, 2 Jul

Mark Conner <n9xtn@...>
 

Today's MRF run shows lighter winds yet. A 95,000 ft burst shows
a landing at 306 degrees at 11 miles. For 75,000', it's due
north at 7 miles. Both locations are generally favorable if
Herington is used for launch, unfavorable if the Johnson Near
Space Center is.

AV at GPSL

pverhage1960 <paul.verhage@...>
 

I'll be looking at the AV eqiupment today. But I've been told there
is a LCD projector that can be hooked up to a VCR (provided) or a
laptop (we need to bring our own laptops). I have my laptop with me
and plan to try it out later today or tomorrow.

Paul


Don and Helium

pverhage1960 <paul.verhage@...>
 

Don, I didn't have a phone message from you on my cell phone. Please
call (208) 631-7162 and let me know how to contact you. Can we drop
off helium at Herington on Wednesday?

I'll check email again later today and early tomorrow.

Paul


Herington 2m repeater

Mark Conner <n9xtn@...>
 

According to the various listings, Herington has a repeater at 385' AGL
on 147.135+. Some listings indicate a PL tone of 88.5 Hz. If we get
out of simplex range of each other and aren't into the Manhattan
147.255+ repeater well, we can QSY there to coordinate before launch
and after landing.

Would each team prefer their own simplex frequency and use the 2m
repeater only for inter-team comm, or would you prefer a common channel
for all teams? I personally would like to stay on 70cm for voice while
the balloons are in the air so that I don't desense 2m data reception.
However, ANSR uses 70cm for data and may want 2m for voice.

We can do this by e-mail now, or maybe have a session before we break
for the day to come up with a chase team comm plan.

- Mark


Re: Herington 2m repeater

pverhage1960 <paul.verhage@...>
 

I'd prefer a single 70 cm frequency for all chase crews, 446.520.

Launch Site

pverhage1960 <paul.verhage@...>
 

I need to know ASAP if we're going to launch out of Herington. Don, I
also need to know ASAP if we can lock helium tanks up at the airport.

Please give me a call.


Reservations and Parking

pverhage1960 <paul.verhage@...>
 

Sirloin Stockade has us down for dinner. The Gold Fork doesn't accept
reservations, but they made a note to themselves to expect up to 30
people for lunch. They'll try to put us all in the same corner.

The visitor booth at the front of the campus opens at 8:00 AM. A one
day visitor's parking pass is free. Be sure to ask for one when you
get to the campus.

I'll be testing my laptop on the library's AV cart in about 30
minutes.

Paul


AV Equipment

pverhage1960 <paul.verhage@...>
 

Okay, folks, I just checked everything out. The AV cart has a VCR and
PC. There is a 3.5" floppy disk drive and a DVD drive in the PC. I
was able to connect my laptop to the cart and project the presentation
stored on my laptop. I also ran my presentation from the PC off of my
floppy. Powerpoint 2000 is installed on the PC. The PC also has an
internet connection, but you must use Internet Explorer, not Netscape.
I also switched in the VCR without a problem.

The overhead projector wasn't in the room, so my Mother reserved it
for Friday.


Dinner 4 July?

pverhage1960 <paul.verhage@...>
 

I'm in the area. Anyone who plans to be here on the 4th, do you have
plans for dinner? Call me at (208) 631-7162 and leave a message.
Perhaps several of us can get together. I'll try getting on the MAARS
repeater this evening, but don't rely on finding me there.

Paul


July 4th Contact

pverhage1960 <paul.verhage@...>
 

I will have no access to the internet on July 4th. If anyone needs to
contact me, please give me a call.

Paul


Re: Dinner 4 July?

mgray@...
 

Paul and others,

I plan to arrive mid afternoon on the 4th, so I will attempt to contact
you when I arrive. I will bring your number as well as try the
local repeater.

Re: Launch Site

Don Pfister <ka0jlf@...>
 

Mark, I guess it is your call if we move launch sites. I didnt' think we would
decide until later, possibly Friday. I guess Paul needs to know now. I'll check
on the locked area. I had thought we would store them at JNSC.

I'll try to get Paul and answer and call him.

Arrival

Harry M <harrymue@...>
 

Hi all!
This is Harry in Tulsa.
We will be arriving from Tulsa Friday, hopefully in time for lunch, and plan
on attending the dinner also. We will be staying at the Super-8 in
Manhattan. We would like to get involved with one of the crews so if anyone
needs some extra help we will be available to do whatever needs done.

ANSR participation at GPSL

Mark Conner <n9xtn@...>
 

Received the following from ANSR:

==============
Mark,

Since I will be the only ANSR guy attending, I don't think I can
launch a balloon by myself. I will bring our Payload Computer
(cross band repeater/tracking system) and Micro Beacon in case we
want to fly them on another balloon train. I'll also have equipment
to track and recover if necessary. If nothing else, I can help with
the launch on Saturday morning.

Michael Gray, ANSR - kd7lmo

===============

See www.ansr.org - does any group have weight to spare and interested
in flying one of the ANSR payloads?

Re: ANSR participation at GPSL

mgray@...
 

We have a 3 pound Payload Computer that has a cross band repeater,
flight data recorder, and DTMF commanding. We also have a 1 pound
APRS beacon. I can also help out with T & R or just help with the
launch day activities.

Information on our Payloads is at http://www.kd7lmo.net
