Romanian high-altitude balloon launch
On October, 15th, a Romanian team will try to launch a high altitude baloon! The baloon will be tracked via APRS and the trace will be available via aprs.fi.The payload will consist of a HiRes Camera, a Video stream equipment for live images and tracking devices (APRS and GPS logger). DONE !
The ballon will be followed by a mobile team with a tactical APRS setup and from a fixed location, also with tactical APRS and live stream capture device.
The APRS callsign for this launch will be YR1X-11 and the tracker will transmit with 10 W on 144.800 MHz with a period of aprox. 8 sec. The data will be digipeated via YO3KSR-2 Digipeater at every 28 seconds (UIFLOOD CHECK).

The proof of reception will be either a audio file from the receiver or a screen capture.
