Any ideas for near space (weather) balloon telemetry?
The issue I see is that many common systems are only good to about 40 miles which would still be way too short of a distance. Cellphones are obviously out of the question (way too unreliable up there). Satellite phones would break the bank. Power consumption is also a concern I have. I would consider getting an amateur radio license if you guys think it would help.
I plan to use arduinos.
JP Aerospace does some of the stuff I want to do with this potential project. The photo is their Away 46 mission.
