While I'm still functioning (its been a long and exciting
day!) - I just thought i'd take a moment to pop on and say a big thank
you to everyone who tracked the Barnaby Launch from Welshpool today - we
were even picked up in Holland (PE2BZ, I believe, and DutchBillMT?)
was far from our first launch, but this was the first one with the
Habduino on it, and so a lot was riding on it! - Thats why I went
overboard and got it on the RSGB news, and southgate etc..
paid off in droves, we got all the data we wanted, we got near
real-time positioning, all in all it worked better than we imagined - I
think its fair to say we'll be using it again!
I monitored from
setup for about 90 minutes from the launch site, I was using an 817 with
just a cheap 2/70 mini whip..and tbh, I got a useable signal the entire
time, I couldnt upload all the time, as the phone signal wasn't
And while were up there, we also stuck a copy of
Oxygene to the craft...If you weren't aware, Oxygene is 40 this year,
and JMJ is planning to produce a book, and wants pictures and artwork -
so I took the opportunity, and it seems to have paid off pretty well!
