@Max what happend to 2015?

I wonder the same thing myself. The year went by in a blur... I do remember that Field day occured on the hottest weekend of the year.

@Max dare we hope for a write up with pictures from thsi year's event?

I'll put it on my list of things to do. This will increase the probibility that it might get done.

By the way, if anyone in US/Canada wants to find a Field day site nearby, check out the site locator.

Not that every field day site is on there, only the ones trying to attract visitors...

@Max there's just so much fun stuff to do and so little time to do it all in :-)

Yes and it seems to get worse the older I get. One of the problems with the Internet is that it enables me to know of more fun stuff than I could possibly have time to do. I really should spend more time doing things and less time perusing the Internet....

Only 4 weeks until Field Day - time to start getting ready....

@Elizabeth: I'd be interested in hearing more. Especially if the attempt to maintain altitude proves successfull.

I would love to be involved in this sort of thing -- there's just so much fun stuff to do and so little time to do it all in :-)

I think that one of the universities around where I live has a balloon club where they do similar things so I'm always interested in hearing about different approaches to the design. This is the first that I'd heard of an attempt to control the altitude by releasing gas or dumping ballist. Most ones that I've heard about before just go up untill the balloon pops then return to the earth. Preferably while sending data to allow them to be found again.

I'd be interested in hearing more. Especially if the attempt to maintain altitude proves successfull.
