Catamount-5 To Fly Saturday, Feb. 16, 2013

Our Next Balloon Launch will be coming up on Saturday February 16, 2013. We are expecting to beging assembly and launch of the balloon around 8AM, at the Jackson County Airport.

We are still looking for people who are interested in assisting with chasing and recovering the balloon. If you are interested in attending the launch, please contact us, by means of our contact us page. We will all be monitoring the K4WCU Repeater saturday morning, and be using IRLP reflector 9444 as our central hub for communications.

We will be using the same APRS Callsign of K4WCU-11, and using the same beacon frequency and recovery equipment. We hope that if you cannot attend the launch, you will follow and listen along! Thanks to all of you who have interest in this project.

UPDATE: Launch Rescheduled due to launch issues. Look for us again on April 27.
