It's been on the front page of the website for a few months now. :)

Click on the event link on the left of the homepage, then click on the yellow event link tab in the lower right. It will take you to the GPSL2013 website.

There is also a countdown timer to launch on the homepage.

On the subject of the OT+.....

Do you want to volunteer it to be the tracker for the payload we are launching? You would have a nearly 100% chance of getting it back (we have recovered all 4 of our previous launches).

Otherwise I have to get off my but and get one ordered. I've got the 2m ham radio and all the gear for tracking from the car, we are just short the actual tracker.

letting you use the OT+ isn't a problem

I should be in St Louis either the 19th or the weekend after that, if you can meet me there (i'll swap a soft green gun case and chokes for it  ;) )

What are you using for the GSP?

If you would like to track the launch and balloons, here is the website to do it: http://aprs.fi/#!addr=pella%2C%20ia

Our ROBOMO-5 payload is flying under the callsign of KD0MEQ-11 (that's a zero, not an O). Our balloon mentor, Paul, is also flying a tracker on the flight with the callsign KD4STH-7.


The super Honda chase vehicle will be tracking as KD0MEQ-6.
