Launch Day 9/14/2019

Launch day is upon us!
Launch day predictions are 40 miles with an ascent rate of 800 feet per minute, and 30.5 with an ascent rate of 1,000 feet per minute. I strongly encourage you to take a look at the map here and familiarize yourself with both predictions and how ascent rate changes those predictions.
We will mainly be using the W4FWD repeater until it is out of range. Then we will switch to the WB4GNA repeater on 147.090+ with a 131.8 hertz tone.
You can track the balloon online here.
