High Altitude Balloon - Success!


I remember vividly picking up a copy of MAKE magazine and being captivated by an article on building a high altitude balloon (HAB). For years, I had wished there was some project I could undertake as a hobbyist that would give me a glimpse into space. 720 more words

J43VAA New APRS Digi (Doliana)

(Απρίλιος 2016)
Εγκαταστάθηκε στα Δολιανά νέο Digipeater-APRS “J43VAA” από την ΕΕΡ (στα VHF 144.800 1.2K αλλά και στα UHF 438.100 9.6K).
Από την πρώτη στιγμή παρουσιάστηκαν κάποια προβλήματα στην εκπομπή και στην λήψη, που ελπίζουμε να διορθωθούν στο σύντομο μέλλον και το νέο Digipeater να αποδώσει τα αναμενόμενα!
Όπως και να έχει είναι ένα βήμα προς τα εμπρός για της ψηφιακές επικοινωνίες της ευρύτερης περιοχής της Ν.Α. Πελοποννήσου.
Θα επανέλθουμε με νεώτερα σχετικά με την αποκατάσταση των παρατηρήσεων.

Πολλά 73!
