12th Launch February 8th 2022

4:00 p.m. KC9RP is now at Grid Square EN80en 21:34 zulu Flight Time 6 hours and 4 minutes. I suppose we’re a little early for Hamvention? I missed most of the setup pictures, just snapping a few pictures after launch. I’d like to recognize our launch team Michael Seedman AA6DY, Stewart Spies KB9LM, Cary Willis KD9ITO and Jonathon Weiland. We made a slight change to this launch adding 1 extra gram of free lift for 7 grams total. Below is John KD9THB NOAA Model for trajectory, looks like a wild ride on February 11th.
