SARCNET is an affiliation of primary school amateur radio clubs
We plan to launch at 10am a Qualatex 12683 90cm microfoil balloon with a 50g UHF payload, callsign SARC1, transmitting on 434.650MHz FM with BPSK31 telemetry, which can be decoded and uploaded to HABITAT/HABHUB using DLFLDIGI. The balloon will be tracked by a large group of school children and scouts during an ANZAC day holiday special amateur radio event.
We joined GSBC to be part of the exciting global event.
Team Launch Date: 04/25/2016
