I'm planning to attend the Great Plains Super Launch 2016 this year in Granbury, Texas ( for the first time and I'm really looking forward to it!  Previous GPSL events have appear to be well attended and had great presentations!  On Saturday morning, many are planning on launching balloon missions, most are latex balloons, but I'm planning on launching a floater balloon.  It will be a 36" Qualatex helium filled balloon carrying a Pecan Pico 5 tracker configured with LiPo battery & solar cells for what is hopefully a long duration flight.  More to come on that in future posts, but it will look something like the one we launched at the Greater Houston Hamfest this year (picture below).

73 for now, de John
