RE: [aprsisce] See you all for Field Day!!! And the Rocket Recovery!
- I forgot to suggest you also I-Gate made on APRSIS32 combined with the RX
device for example using sound modem or connected directly via serial port
if D710 or other KISS capable device will be in place.
This requires Internet access and I have no idea if it is feasible there on
the desert unless you use satellite access.
PS. After waching the video on http://www.soundingrocket.org I understand
why they require good insurance so much. ;-)

Subject: [aprsisce] See you all for Field Day!!! And the Rocket Recovery!
Leaving this morning for our Rocket Recovery and Field Day. Will try and do
some APRS if there is a Digi in reach. We will be doing Radio Communications
for the http://www.soundingrocket.org . This is so much fun to do and watch
the rockets fly. I will be using the "Big Red Bee" APRS GPS in one of the
25,000 foot rockets. Will try to crossband it to the APRS VHF, but doubt I
can. Will save a KML file that I will post to the group if all goes as
planned. Will be able to see in Google earth. Hopefully the chute deploys
and we can recover the unit safe. Will try and save the tracks also. Well,
off to bed to hit the road.
Oh, this takes place South of Green River, UT USA. Not sure how many miles
this year, but in the middle of the desert.
