The University of Akron ARC plans to launch a high altitude balloon (UA-HABP2), with repeater on Saturday, April 12, 2014 at around 11am EDT. Payload includes a cross band repeater, slow scan television, and telemetry.

The repeater will have a coverage area exceeding 200 miles for a majority of the two to four hour flight, reaching a maximum altitude projected to be at least 80,000 feet. Everyone is encouraged to join in! A hand held is all that is needed to receive the balloon, dual band capability allows repeater use if desired. Launch location subject to change closer to launch date. Please check our Twitter feed and habp.w8upd.org website for updated launch info as well as real time tracking when launched.

FM Repeater (input) 438.050 MHz (No PL Required)

After consideration, we have moved our SSTV frequency to 145.600 MHz. The move comes to minimize the interference with our repeater caused by harmonics of the SSTV transmitter.

We always have the latest information at http://habp.w8upd.org/

Thanks everyone!
