Can you post something on the AMSAT list about listening for my balloon over GA today. It was heard NE of Atlanta at 9:15 am today but his custom RTTY setting kept crashing his program.
WB8ELK on 433.888 MHz AM (plus or minus for temperature drift). Can also hear it via FM and WFM but will be weaker than using AM mode.
110 baud ASCII RTTY (8 bits, No parity, 1 stop bit) Use Custom RTTY mode in FLdigi. Transmits every 15 seconds with a 5-second gap between transmissions.
Last heard over Northeast Atlanta. Possibly heading to the Southeast of Altanta but could also be heading out to SC.
This is a solar-powered floater balloon that could stay up several days.
