    What happens when Hams launch 4 Styrofoam coolers with re-purposed radio equipment to reach 100,000 feet? Fun and lessons learned!

    This presentation by Wilf, VE7OHM via Zoom from Vernon, BC will detail the Vernon Balloon eXperiments (VBX) when a team of enthusiastic amateur radio operators from British Columbia and Alberta get together about 25 years ago to take amateur radio to new heights over the southern interior of BC. This topic is timely with all the recent media reporting of balloons being shot down.

    Our 2023 February 28 general meeting will be hosted on the main floor of the Calgary Sports Car Club, 4215 80th Ave NE, Calgary. 

    For those do who wish to attend virtually, this will be enabled through a virtual link via a Zoom login.
