BLT-35 & BLT-36 PECANs to DEUTSCHLAND!
More Floater Experiments! - PicoPecans - from West Houston to Germany
BLT-35 & BLT-36 Specs:
APRS - Callsigns BLT-35 = KT5TK-3 & BLT-36 = KT5TK-4 both on 144.390 MHz - 100 mW
Set to adjust frequency for all global APRS standards
Standard 1200 bps APRS Operation
BLT-35 will use a cluster of mylar balloons and BLT-36 will use one LARGE 1600 gr latex balloon
This means that BLT-35 will fly at lower altitudes than BLT-36, but both will hopefully travel NE, and on to Europe.
Comparing the flight characteristics of the two projects is the primary mission goal.
What will happen? What will we achieve? Let's find out!
