The MC Amateur Radio Club is winding down to finishing their latest high-altitude balloon launch.

“In development since September of 2015, this payload has Spot and Venus GPS units, three high-definition cameras, and APRS capabilities over VHF, which stands for very high frequency,” junior and club President Owen Cruise said.

While the club is excited over their latest feat, there are still some specific things that they need to worry about.

“We are completely ready to launch, but unfortunately the weather can only be predicted accurately about a week into the future,” Cruise said. “Currently, January 23 looks quite promising for the launch, but that is not yet set in stone.”

The club has hopes for this balloon. “We hope the payload will land somewhere near the Anza Borrego Desert,” Cruise said.
