----> Model Rocketry
My wife, my daughter, and I are avid geocachers (HRHorton, ryleeBUG, and CBHorton respectively)... Other than astronaut Rick Mastracchio taking the Travel Bug TB5JJN1 into space, there really hasn't been any trackable geocaching goodies that have made it to space. Now, with the power of HAM radio's APRS and HAB'ing I can get one kinda close to space! I have an idea that I think is AMAZING for this, but I am NOT gonna share it here..... ::in an evil tone:: YOU WILL NOT STEAL MY IDEA! ::end evil tone:: but it will be EPIC!
And as far as model rocketry is concerned.....My wife might not be into it, but my daughter and her LOVE to watch them blast off! I cant blame them.....I do too!!! And now I can add APRS to it as well to track it without spending a ridiculous amount of money on tracking hardware!
