The hadie module lives on! After the successful flight with Project Cirrus the module has been rebuilt and has flew again. You can read more on the further adventures of hadie on its project website at: www.sanslogic.co.uk/hab/
Pleased to report a successful flight and recovery.
The highest telemetry received was from the Cirrus module at an altitude of approx 101,600 feet, just short of 31km! Some of the pictures have been added to the gallery page showing both those from the cirrus payload and the HADIE module.
Flight forecast for Friday at 10:00! Track us on http://spacenear.us/tracker/
If you have a radio feel free to try and receive out telemetry. The page on http://ukhas.org.uk/guides:tracking_guide is an excellent beginners guide. The balloon will be transmitting on two channels… 434.650Mhz and 434.075Mhz. The latter will be transmitting images at 300 baud, which the new version of dl-fldigi can receive, and telemetry at 300 baud. The 434.65 module will be transmitting pure telemetry at 50 baud.
Just remember that if what you are receiving seems like nonsense then it might be an image….. or you may need to flip the signal in dl-fldigi…
If you need help just get over onto the IRC Channel at http://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=highaltitude
