Hi all,

This is an UP/DOWN balloon flight, aiming for high altitude of around 40,000m.

- LATEX 1600g balloon
- APRS on 145.175Mhz, 30mW, call sign VK3YT-11
- Primary tracker RTTY 100baud, 600Hz shift, 8N1 on 434.650Mhz (Dial 434.649Mhz), 10mW, callsign PS-37, RSID enabled.
- Backup tracker RTTY 100baud, 450Hz shift, 8N1 on 432.220Mhz (Dial ~432,219Mhz), 10mW, callsign PSCD, with CW ID for VK3YT.

APRS tracking on aprs.fi http://aprs.fi/#!mt=roadmap&z=11&call=VK3YT-11
RTTY tracking on SNUS http://tracker.habhub.org/?filter=PS-37;PSCD

At high altitude the RF footprint should cover most of VIC and NSW, and some of SA.

Assistance with tracking on the day will be greatly appreciated.
Hope to see you on the map!
