>> SkyQuest Bulletin 2002-1
>> Six fully equipped ham radio balloons launching from
>> southern New Hampshire this Friday and Saturday!!!
>> CAPSAT (http://www.mv.com/ipusers/llb/capsat.html)
>> Launching a total of six radio equipped balloons,
>> two with ATV, two with crossband repeaters, all with APRS,
>> Friday and Saturday from the grounds of the
>> Hosstraders Hamfest/Flea in Hopkinton, NH May 3 and 4.
>> Launches at 10 AM, 12 noon, and 2 PM
>> (times subject to adjustment, please see CAPSAT website).
>> 12 noon each day for the ATV balloon.
>> Most on this list will be in radio range, although these
>> balloons are being inflated to burst a little lower than normal
>> to aid in recovery and to land short of the ocean.
>> At 40,000 feet the radio range will be about 240
>> miles. That covers from Montreal to NYC, and as
>> far west as Syracuse (don't forget to give the balloon
>> time to rise to altitude if you're out more than 50 miles).
>> As a rough guess these balloons may reach peak altitude
>> in under an hour (35-55 minutes). I've posted a radio range
>> map for CAPSAT on HABLIC website.
>> This should be a tremendous event for northeast balloon
