Members of the Nashua Area Radio Club launched a High-Altitude Balloon (HAB) to the edge of space and back this past weekend. Our HAB carried a 2m APRS Transmitter and sent position and atmospheric telemetry to the ground during its flight. Our HAB was tracked by many folks using aprsi.fi during its flight via the N1FD-11 call sign.

You can see an amazing video of the flight include footage taken from the balloon on our club website here -

Our HAB launch was part of a STEM learning project that our club did in partnership with several High Schools here in New Hampshire. You can read more about the project and our STEM work on our Blog here -

Enjoy!
