Mission 20 has ended

2 jumps completed! With a mission that was almost scrubbed, we somehow managed to pull if off. Considering our weather window was less then 4 hours, we still met most all mission objectives. Winds were high in the early morning and then decreased and stayed at 15 mph until roughly 1330 hrs. Then it rose back up to as high as 20 mph with gusts.

The exciting news was for the first time Parachute Mobile included 10 meters. Not knowing how well it would work out, even one contact would have been a success, and as it turned out, we had about six.

If you made a contact with a jumper please drop me an Email at kc6tyd@gmail.com and tell me which jumper(s) you made contact with to receive your one-of-a kind Mission 20 QSL Card.

Check back soon to view some of the pictures and video taken during the mission and to find out when our next mission will be.
