On Wednesday, August 10, 2022, radio club Zottegem ON6ZT / UBA section ZTM plans the Friends Round Flemish Ardennes from a warm air balloon.
ON8VC Jurgen, ON3NSB Niels and ON5MB Bernard provide the round on the well-known frequency 145.550 MHz. Balloon will take off in the Zottegem region (JO10??) and the flight will probably take 1 to 1.5 hours from a maximum of 2500 feet. Balloon will also be trackable via APRS. Start time probably between 6 and 8 p.m.
If you want to follow/work this unique round, put a big exclamation mark in your diary at 10 August . For a balloon flight, everything depends of course on the weather conditions. The round will not take place in case of bad weather.
More (technical) info and updates will follow via social media, www.on6zt.be and QRZ.com …
