To elaborate further, we're keeping the Zoom URL under our hat a bit so that we know how many participants to expect on the day.  We have a limited capacity for the zoom session (large, but limited).  We're concerned that if we publish the URL early, that unregistered attendees may show up and end up blocking out some registered people.  It's not likely, but it would suck if the zoom got swamped, and  say, a presenter couldn't get in! 

Anyway, that's the reason.  A few days before the event, we'll email registered attendees two URLs - one for Friday and a second one for Saturday's zoom-a-long with the launches.

Below is the latest schedule for our speakers.  We will open the Zoom meeting a half hour early so that people will have time to diagnose connection issues prior to the official start at 0900 CDT (1400 UTC).

There may be some minor adjustments between now and next Friday, but I think this is pretty solid.  More than likely we would adjust the end time and leave the start alone if we need to make changes.

Thanks again to all those who volunteered to present next week.

Shout out to you in Iowa,

 

I will go to Colorado for GPSL – EOSS-300.

Eileen and puppy Aspen will ride shotgun.

 

I had a new roof put on the house (hail damage paid by insurance) and finally got my antenna back to operational.

Made 89 contacts on Field Day as a 1D-NTX from the house with your fine old Kenwood TS-940-S.

Got FL, SC all the rest of south, all SW, NM CA PR plus most of upper Midwest.

I always think of you when I turn on the power – I have had more fun and good times because you passed that treasure on to me.

 

I never thought I would be able to do HF from my covenant controlled community, but contacts from all over NA, SA EU, Australia & New Zealand are IN the Logbook.

 

Wish we could meet in Omaha, but lets hold out hope for next year…

 

PS – just finished Radiation Treatments for Prostate Cancer – all went very well – no side effects and feeling better than I deserve.

Hope you all in Pella staying safe and healthy.

Re: Zoom practice sessions

I plan on trying the practice session tonight, thank you!

Zoom practice sessions

Michael Hojnowski
 

Gang,

Hearing that there are some "Zoom newbies" that might want some extra time, I'm going to schedule a few brief "zoom practice sessions".   I'll list date / times below.  For those more experienced with zoom, I've scheduled the the GPSL meeting to start 1/2 hour early for people to settle in and work out last moment tech issues.   I encourage experienced users to connect a little early, just to kick the tires.

Zoom has some very good help on their website, and if you google "Zoom participant" or "Zoom student" you'll find lots of short, helpful youtube videos.  Here's one from Zoom inc: https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/201362193-Joining-a-meeting

Practice sessions (please note, each session has a unique URL):

Monday 6/29. 8pm CDT: https://cornell.zoom.us/j/98387509533?pwd=NzJxSEF1Q05ieUdkOFBRc0ZQNXZIdz09

Wednesday 7/1.  8am CDT: https://cornell.zoom.us/j/99833148860?pwd=eDB6aVltYldVS0ZpOXVLRk5iVnlvZz09

If you are trying to connect and have trouble, feel free to email me privately.  I'll be watching my email.  If needs be, we can chat via phone and talk you through.

I can schedule more practice sessions if requested.

'73,
Mike / KD2EAT

Harry,

I believe all you will need is the Zoom client.  You'll also be given the option to download it when you get the meeting URL (it's not all that large of a download).  An account is not necessary to join others' Zoom meetings.

I also believe Zoom can be used purely in a browser window, with some reduced functionality, but I've always used the client for any Zoom meetings hosted by others.

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.

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.

GPSL 2020 less than two weeks away

Mark Conner N9XTN
 

GPSL 2020 is inexorably approaching - we're now under two weeks away.  

Our current plan is to open the Zoom session around 0830 CDT on Friday to give people a little time to test and diagnose Zoom issues with attendees and speakers.  We'll start at 9 and have a mid-morning and mid-afternoon break plus about 45 minutes for lunch, and we should wrap up around 4pm CDT.  We'll leave the session "open" at breaks and lunch for people to ask follow-up questions or to kibitz with others, similar to what happens IRL.  Exact timing and speaker order is TBD, but I should have that by next weekend.

On Saturday we will open a Zoom session around 0830 CDT, about 30 min before launch time, and let people "broadcast" their launch.  Mike KD2EAT will be moderating and monitoring for any Zoom issues.  I will be contacting those launching balloons Saturday to see if there is a preferred time to get together to share flight stories afterwards.

If you've forgotten to register, please do so at https://superlaunch.org and click on the registration link about midway down the page.  We will distribute the URLs to registered attendees a day or two prior to the 10th.  We have just over 60 registrations and have room for plenty more.
