GSBC 2020 Announced! GSBC 2020 Starts April 3. Closing date of the window will depend on what happens with the coronovirus. At minimum, window is extended until August 1, 2020. Please stay safe and abide by local recommendations.
We are a group of amateur radio enthusiasts located 25 km east from Bonn. In 2013 and 2014 we accomplished 3 balloon missions. Two of them started as school projects.
"Ballooino" is an artificial word made from "Balloon" and "Arduino". The payload (APRS and telemetry) will be based on the popular Arduino microcontroller boards. Another challenge is that the gross weight of the complete setup (payload + balloon + parachute) must not exceed 500 grams. This will keep the cost low for balloon an helium and will meet simplified regulations.
We want to share experiences, ideas and have more fun within the community.
Team Launch Date: 04/11/2015
