Prepping for NearSys-17E

The flight train for my next launch is ready to go. Just watching the weather and the flight predictions. Surface winds promise to be a bit higher than I like.

The trackers are KD4STH-9 and KD4STH-12. Total weight is six pounds on a 1200 gram balloon. With three pounds of positive lift, the balloon should make close to 100,000 feet in 100 minutes.
