Mission 18!!!Posted: August 20, 2014
Mission 18 is scheduled for September 14, 2015. We hope to have our first jump around 11:00 A.M. We may or may not have a Parachute Control in place to keep everyone up to date. If not, updates will be made on the W6CX repeater at 147.060 + 100, located on top of Mount Diablo. The QSO frequency will be 146.430 simplex. Our previous video gear experienced some mechanical malfunctions so until we get it fixed we are currently testing a new 5.8 GHz system. Preliminary tests have been unsatisfactory so we may or may not have live streaming video available. The jumpers will be setup with APRS and can be followed on your favorite APRS tracking site. For Jumper 1, search AF6IM and for Jumper 2, search KF6WRW. Our APRS system incorporates not only location but altitude, but heart rate a blood oxygenation of the jumper as well.
