Meeting Notes for 2011.02.06 Participants

- Onno
- Brian
- Christopher

Started the meeting with giving Onno a walk though of the current state of the project. Outlined what equipment we are using, and what equipment we are planning on replacing. Equipment being replaced

- Camera
- Radio transmitter
- open tracker
- GPS puck
- antena
- Payload bus

Brian gave an update of the new APRS equipment

Onno is interested in adding a live video feed to our payload. Looked at the transmitters. It draws alot of power, so batteries for it will add alot of weight. Possible solutions would be to add a pressure sencor to turn it off at a certin altitud and then back on at a certine altitude for live launch and decent vedio.

- the module is 50 grams, the lithium battery should be about 90 grams.
- Use the android phone to loop the radio call sign as an audio output, route this to the video transmitter to keep call sign broadcasted. 

Project status Camera: Blake has purchsed one new camera for the project, and has started to port the CHDK.

APRS System: Brain has purchased the nessicary parts, but has not started the build process

Video Feed: Still in planning stage
