Folk --

Bob W0BUX has offered to donate one of the other of these two trackers to
our Balloon effort.

Comment on which we should prefer?

Dave,



Yesterday I ran a battery life test on the Beeline BLGPS 2M tracker, powered
by a 7.4v 1800mAh lithium battery.  Nominal output was set to 5W with
transmissions every minute.  After nearly ten hours the output power was
still over 5W.  I haven't yet tested the 70CM version - I have to check to
see if I have the correct battery.



The 2M BLGPS weighs 45 grams and the battery is 74 grams.



73,



Bob  W0BUX
