Sunday was a Very Good DayPosted: August 2, 2011
SUCCESS! The data logger works! And using just a vertical and I heard plenty.
The first run we had multiple issues. One was the antenna on the radio as a stubby. I swapped it for a full sized whip. Also I was running the radio at 2.5watts instead of 5watts. Plus the GPS was not facing up. So, that was all changed and on the second run we captured the data you see above.
Michael made a third jump and I swapped from a basic 1/4 wave mag mount to a full size j-pole. I think I heard even more data.
This one is a harder to see. Click to see the full sized image.
I never did try the different antenna configurations. Using a vertical just worked.
If someone can tell me how to create a URL to invoke google earth on the KML files I’ll change this post.
First Run KML
Second Run KML
