October 7 meeting: The Balloon Launch Project

We have Ian MacKenzie, KB3OCF, who will talk all about the balloon launch project the RIT radio club did last year out at RIT. He’ll cover the technology, as well as the FAA rules, and everything else you need to know to do it. Their balloon made it to 100,000 feet on the first try. Great pictures, too.
