  • make outline of how things fit into the compartments
  • assemble the antenna for GPRS
  • antenna for video
    • Best thing is to just have the transmitter and the antenna inside one of the compartments
  • assemble GPRS GPS tracking system (details only known to Brian etc.)
  • assemble and mount phone
  • connect blinking circuit to the three position lights
    • have Mark have a look at the circuit
    • mount battery holders
    • Finding about blinking circuit: It is just switching on/off two fully charged AA cells and is certainly not the best way to do it. All three LEDs on the payload are connected in parallel.
  • isolate intervalometer electrically
  • maybe buy Kapton tape(?)
  • buy velcro for mounting electronics in box
  • buy helium tank
  • mount video equipment
  • mount 12V power supply
  • fix the position of the video camera (needs to get into launch checklist!)
  • 2x cinch male-male adapters
  • glue plastic sheets that came loose
  • charge video battery fully and measure full voltage
  • replace batteries in blinker before launch (shorting)
  • replace canon camera battery
  • put failed minimal launch data (track on google maps etc.) onto the wiki
  • put callsign and "if found, please call XXX" onto the unit
  • weight completed payload

Completed Tasks

  • enlarge hole for video camera so that there is not plastics in the field of view
  • put this list onto the wiki, also the launch prep check list
  • mount canon camera to faceplate
  • prepare new Y adapter (done, although the pins have to be bent a bit for safe contact!)
