Balloon Cost

After several group discussions, we've managed to put together a list of equipment we're likely to need for this High Altitude Balloon Project.

They payload is to contain:

  • 2 Meter Beacon
  • Amateur TV Transmitter & Camera
    • The ATV side has been volunteered and loaned to the club by the Detroit Amateur TV Society.
  • APRS Transmitter
  • Sensors (via Arduino/Netduino)
    • Temperature
      • Internal
      • External
    • Barometric Pressure
    • Battery Voltage
    • Altitude
All of these items are to be contained within a box designed and built by Bill Yoder (K9ASA). 

This spreadsheet is a work in progress, and available on Google Drive:
