Michigan Balloon Launch May 5 CANCELLED
- Hello again -
We have discovered, in the 11th hour, that our telemetry system does not convey altitude information. In order to fly a balloon, you must communicate your position, including altitude to FAA air traffic control. This allows them to assure that there will be no Balloon-Aircraft encounters.
So, we have issues a NO-GO for our May 5'th launching at The Allendale Highschool Amateur Radio Club of Allendale, Michigan. The launch will be scheduled for a later date.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact me, or Brian Brethauer <bbreth@...> KC8NPH.
What a bummer, huh? But when it comes to Balloons, you do it right, or you don't do it at all!
