QST, QST, QST…
Parachute Mobile Mission 31 is scheduled for June 16, 2018.
This will be an opportunity to for you to make a unique contact with a skydiver while he descends under his parachute.
Frequencies (Corrected HF Rx frequency typo)
FM: 146.430 MHz simplex
HF: 14.250 MHz up 10 KC (Tx 14.250, Rx 14.260)
Search AF6IM or KC6TYD depending on jumper
Live streaming video: (Updated 6-8-18)
EchoLink: (Updated 6-15-18)
This will be our first time using EchoLink. Please be patient when attempting to make a QSO as we are aware of latency issues. We have tried our best to keep this at a minimum. The node can only handle 10 connections at a time. Once your contact is made please disconnect to make room for others to join in. Please wait until the jumper calls for EcoLink contacts. Since altitude will not be an issue for E/L users the jumper will take simplex contacts first.

We hope to have our first jump as close to 10 a.m. Listen on 146.430 MHz for Parachute Control. Updates will be made throughout the day to keep you advised of jump status. Too far away? Updates will be made on the W6CX repeater (Diablo) on 147.060+ 100. We will also have a running timeline of updates on our website at parachutemobile.org. We hope to complete 4 jumps for the day.
