This Sunday (18th of September) we will be launching Horus 16 at around 09:00 am local time (~00:00 UTC). This launch is a test of the new MicroNut payload, and another shot at an altitude record. We're expecting a peak altitude of 40km, which will give a radio horizon of around 700km.
The current prediction puts the balloon landing around the Lameroo area, so we're in for an interesting chase!
Update: the Horus 16 writeup is now online.
Mark has been keeping himself busy of late putting together new telemetry systems for our payloads. His most recent board 'MicroNut' is an extraordinarily compact GPS tracker & radio transmitter, capable of operating on 70cm/2m RTTY or full blown APRS depending on the radio module installed.
