Wirral Grammar School for Girls hope to launch a 434 MHz balloon on Wednesday 2 October 2013 from Middleton Hill near Welshpool
The payload will consist of a camera and the following trackers, lifted by a 1200g Hwoyee:
- WGGS1 : 50 baud 7n2 ASCII RTTY on 434.3 MHz, 10 mW, 470 Hz shift
- WGGS1-B : 50 baud 7n2 ASCII RTTY on 869.8 MHz, 5 mW, 320 Hz shift
The 869.8 MHz tracker is intended as a spare/experiment, it's antenna is a dipole attached to the side of the payload, so may not give a very uniform radiation pattern from it. Polarisation is vertical.
