Great Plains Super Launch this weekend #ARRL #hamradio

Plan now to listen for the Great Plains Super Launch from Granbury, TX Saturday June 18.

The Great Plains Super Launch will take place at the Pecan Plantation airport south of Granbury, TX.  Several balloon are planned for launch - I've lost count of exactly how many.

APRS will be on 144.39, 144.36, and 144.34 MHz.  There are plans to have local and/or mobile Igates on all three frequencies, so the flights should be well-represented on APRS-IS and the usual tracking websites.

The flights are projected to head generally southwest and landings should be between Hico and Hamilton TX.

Thanks to Mark N9XTN for this information.
