Workshop: NEWBS High Altitude Balloon Tracker Build


Title: NEWBS High Altitude Balloon Tracker Build

Workshop Leader: Max Kendall W0MXX

Time: June 29 @10am - 11:30am

Join in on our upcoming New England Weather Balloon Society high altitude balloon launches as a member of the radio tracking team.  Max will show us how to set up our laptops to receive, decode, and post GPS and telemetry from high altitude balloons launched by our own New England Weather Balloon Society.  The only additional equipment needed is an RTL-SDR dongle and a UHF antenna (preferably mag mount).  These balloon trackers use Horus Binary v2 to transmit using 4FSK on the 70 cm band.  Equipment is not provided for this one, but you can come with just a laptop and get things set up while waiting to secure the other parts.

Please read all the details on the Wireless Technology Club web page before signing up.
