Project Horus High altitude balloon project


A visit to SERG at Mt Gambier

Last weekend, Adrian, Matt, Grant & I visited the South East Radio Group in Mt Gambier to give a talk on high altitude ballooning. Our talk was well received by some enthusiastic hams, and Adrian VK5ZSN gave some demos of his truck & its RDF/balloon hunting capabilities.

As well as giving a talk, the team headed to the Mt Gambier airport at 9am on Sunday to observe the launch of a radiosonde from the local automated launch station. The balloon was released at 9:45am with Grant's camera at the ready:

A big thanks to SERG for inviting us to their clubrooms & for their hospitality over the weekend. :-)
