This Appeals to My Inner Geek


A high school kid (with some help from a local HAM radio club, and some parental financial support) sends an MIT Early Admittance Tube (get into MIT early, and don't just get a lame form letter) to 91,000 feet with a weather balloon.

If you don't appreciate 9 minutes (almost) of geekiness, you can see an abbreviated version of the video at www.ARRL.org. (That's the American Radio Relay League)

If you click through the video to the YouTube comments, you can get more info about the radio setup. 2 APRS transmitters. etc.

Yeah, it appeals to mine, too.

Thanks for the cool video.
