      Courtesy  WA0ITP - note "local times" quoted are Central Time.  It should be relatively easy to find the balloon on 20 meters but there is no info on frequency nor how to report reception.   I only received a message in plain text, so there are no "live" links.


      An Iowa High Altitude Balloon launch will take place this Friday in Iowa City, IA.  Details below.

      The iHAB Team is excited to announce the next launch of the iHAB Project! iHAB-10 is scheduled to launch Friday May 10, 2013 at 14:00Z (9AM Local).  iHAB-10 is titled, "Lemme" for Lemme Elementary School, where the kindergarden class has designed and decorated 19 CanisterLabs.  This launch will be a demonstration for the student, teachers, and parents.

      Webcast: 13:ØØZ - 8AM Local Time
      Launch: 14:ØØZ - 9AM Local Time

      Payload includes 19 CanisterLabs from the kindergarden students at Lemme Elementary School, a UHF/VHF CrossBand Repeater.  Uplink: 446.000 PL:100 & Downlink 147.500.  Everyone is invited to work contacts via the balloon while it is aloft.  Expected range will be about 250 miles, so monitoring the downlink frequency will be easy with a modest antenna.
