Balloon Experiment with Amateur Radio BEAR-5 is expected to be airborne on Sunday, 12th Jun 2022 from around 06:45 SGT. CAAS, RSAF and IMDA have approved our application to launch. Payload DRA818V is assembled by 9V1LW and 9V1CV.
APRS on 144.390 MHz, will transmit telemetry: location, altitude, temperature and pressure.
On reaching higher altitude, every 5 minutes SSTV on 145.500 MHz, transmitting a virtual postcard of the balloon.
Please don’t forget: From March 26th, 00:00 UTC to March 27th, 23:59 UTC, the CQ WPX contest takes place. It’s an ideal opportunity to test your equipment and antennas. The contest draws thousands of entries from around the world. Last year we had a record participation from Singapore.
The latest rules can be found here.
