      I flew the new HAB version of RTRAK at GPSL on July 30, 2011. I am happy to report that Serial #0001 performed perfectly for the complete flight. Balloon burst was about 90,000 ft.

      The unit was powered with 2 Energizer 9V lithium batteries in parallel. The batteries had plenty of life left after the 160 minute flight.

      The BalloonSat weighed only 300 grams. The flight track is on APRS.FI with the call n0mpm-11.
