68 days to go

There are 68 days remaining for the end of the N-Prize and we did it again. Launch13 was a success.

We tested the analog video-link (See the video) proposed by some ham from the URE. The laptop was out of memory and we not recorded the ascending part but we lost the link beyond 1 km. Antennas can be improved and signal could be amplified. One of our students (Rodrigo Sampedro) is working, in collaboration with the Department of Signal and Communications Theory (TSC), in a light weight 5.8 GHz helical antenna.
