1449 Changing of the guard here. 🙂 Sorry for the gap. Prepping Mark for an HF jump is always time consuming. He is still getting suited up. Will let you know when he is manifested for a jump as soon as I am able.
1519 Mark is manifested for the next load. It’s a fuel load, which means they will take a little extra time to fuel up the plane. We estimate his jump to be in approximately 30 minutes (~1550).
1540 Mark is on board and the plane has taken off. Expect him to jump in approximately 15 minutes.
1547 Mark will be transmitting on 14.250 MHz. If time allows, he will also be on 146.430.
1555 Jumpers away! This will be the last jump of the day. The next two loads are full. 😦
1615 Mark (AF6IM) is safely on the ground. Sorry we won’t get a fourth jump in today. That’s a wrap! Thanks for participating!
