We were successful in making our first zero pressure balloon and our Hydrogen Generator has also been successfully tested!
Thanks to Stew Lilley we now have the components we need to test the first N-Prize Satellite!
We are awaiting the delivery of the Satellite and will set the date as soon as we get it here in Texas.
Test to be conducted from the Rocket Ranch test site in Lampasas, Texas.

what dimensions do you have on that thing? also, what antenna, frequency and gain are you using (if you don't mind sharing)? do you want me to send you our PCB test thingy for the same test (i assume you're using a balloon) or are there concerns about interference?

TeraMs
Yes, send it. Our Freq. is Ham and I believe yours is 900mhz was that right? It's a dipole antenna. We are about to do a press release. What is the weight of your prototype? May do a separate but simultaneous launch if you hurry. Or we can do it a few days after if your not ready.
