As part of a booth organiser for the Amateur Radio & Electronics booth this year we are planning to be more hands on and are going to have a remote station that we’ll have access to in country Victoria we can us to access and transmit on the 40m band via the internet, which we’ll allow the public to make contact with other stations to get a first hand fell to what one aspect of amateur radio is about.
Also hoping to have some IRLP action going to via the VK5RAD 70cm repeater.
This some screen shots put into a video showing PicoHorus-3 flight that was launched approx 1000 ACST the 15th June. This is from my point of view as a listening ground station based on the north side of the Adelaide CBD.
At approx 0800 ACST the 16th June PicoHorus-3 ran out of battery power and stopped broadcasting telemetry and now categories as unknown and lost, but if you happen to find its playload please contact the great people at Project Horus
Quick video showing the reception of Horus from my QTH
Email that came across letting know that there be a Balloon launch this weekend. Check Spacenear.Us in the morning (15/06/2013 1000hrs ACST) to get the frequency if you like to help with tracking.
Update 14/06/2013 18:44
Confirmed freq is 434.150MHz
This Saturday Mark is going to have another shot at a pico floater launch, though instead of a foil party balloon, he’ll be using a 100g latex balloon.
Launch will be at approx 10am local time.
Mark’s aiming for a <1m/s ascent rate, which should float it at 20km altitude. The float prediction has it floating to the south of Mildura, before continuing along the border towards Wagga Wagga, then on to Sydney. Much like Horus 16, but at about half the altitude.
We’re looking for listeners in both Mildura and Wagga Wagga – if anybody has contacts in these areas, please pass the message on.
The frequency and baud rate of the launch haven’t been decided yet, but the information will be on the http://spacenear.us/tracker/ page at the time of launch.
WHAT IS A MINI MAKER FAIRE?
A Maker Faire is where makers of all kinds get together and show what they can do. Adelaide Mini Maker Faire will have all kinds of demonstrations from 3D printing to blacksmithing and knitting to digital fabrication and everything in between.
Maker Faires feature innovation and experimentation across the spectrum of science, engineering, art, performance and craft.
Maker Faire is part of a growing DIY local and global movement of people who look at things a little differently and who just might spark the next generation of scientists, engineers and makers.
Date: Saturday 6 April 2013
Venue: Adelaide College of Arts 39 Light Square, Adelaide
Time: 10.00am to 6.00pm

Yesterday my Softrock RX Ensemble II HF Receiver arrived from Five Dash Inc. in the US within ten days and was very well packed. Any way like most grown men with a new toy I descided to take the day out and build it, the took me about 15 hours in total. The guide by WB5RVZ is comprehensive and easy enough to follow in a half dozen so steps. I also have a nice box for the Ensemble II RX coming from the KM5H store and it will make it to be a nice looking package.
