Our local HAM radio club asked us to put a balloon they could track for their field day. I guess we messed up in the helium calculation. 😊
It turned into a floater. It is a 600 gram latex balloon flying one of Bill’s skytrackers. Been floating for about a day now at 100k. Kinda neat to see the track.
Just thought I would share for those that are into that stuff.
