14485Jerry's prediction :)
- Aug 21, 2014So figured I'd try everything...
Some new firmware to fix a little bug that I found recently, predicting
with both the UK predictor and Jerry's.
Gen'd the overlay for aprs.... Guess we'll see what happens...
typical flight vehicle.
15gr - tracker, lipo, solar panels
10mW Silab radio on 144.390
35mW on 145.825 when ISS is overhead of the tracker (next one today
14-08-21 2:35p - 2:46p EDT at atlanta, is an 85 degree pass)
vertical dipole antenna
220mah 1S 3.7v lipo
50" tether between balloon and tracker made of 30lb braided fishing line
36" Silver foil Party balloon
approx 2gr of free lift - I was trying to anticipate the weight of the
tape that is used to tie off the tracker, seal the balloon, etc... so it
may be +/- of that a smidge...
Not that its really a concern, but clear pvc heatshrink - 2mil thick
over tracker and battery/gps - was curious what the internal temps would
be like note in black
Another Automagic path flight - hope I don't live to regret that as it's
probably going off shore for a while. Switches from Wide2-1 to no-path
Beacon rate is 2 beacons on 2 min intervals 15 seconds apart
Only time will tell :) - Also planning a flight to 100Kft with Mark
Conner at the end of the month... Checkout flight for HAB. Been to 85k
- everything worked, but also where I found the recent bug :)...
