The 2017 season has started.
We are excited to announce this years Mission dates:
October, 21 (Pacificon)
Dates are subject to change so check back once in a while for updates.
Volunteers: You don’t have to be a skydiver to participate in Parachute Mobile. In fact, most of our crew is made up of non skydivers. It takes careful planning and will coordinated execution for each jump. From comms to live video production to jumper preparation, I’m sure there is something you can jump into. No pun intended. Of course, if you just want to come by the DZ to check things out, that’s OK too. Drop us a email at kc6tyd@gmail,com.
Check us out on facebook. When possible, we’ll try and post some Facebook Live posts. This may include non mission practice jumps as we test our equipment and setup.
More to come so check back.
Hello everyone. Things sure have died down on this page since our last mission. That’s expected. But just to let you all know we’re getting ready behind the scene for another great season of Parachute Mobile. We’re hoping to set some tentative mission dates, which we will post here. We’ll also be planing what our jumper payload will entail and working to improve our video streaming.
Stay tuned for future updates!
Using D-Star on some of our Missions has made it possible to make contacts with this group of hams in Japan
Well, the weather grounded us but our Pacificon operations were a great success! It was sure nice to meet and talk with a lot of hams that I otherwise would not have seen since I would have been out at the DZ. Come back soon, we’ll be posting some pictures taken over the weekend.
