HF Voyager Trans-Pacific Mission Tentative Launch Approches

As Jupiter Research Foundation Prepares to launch the HUMPACs mission JRFARC prepares the HF Voyager payload for a trans-Pacific voyage.

Jupiter Research Foundation (JRF) is planning to launch a Wave Glider SV-3 vehicle to look for a 'missing' population of humpback whales in the low northern latitudes. The JRF Amateur Radio Club will be piggy-backing a autonomous 20 meter band station on the mission.This station will tentatively support interactive PSK-31 and FT8 modes, as well as WSPR for propagation study.

We are planning for a mid-December launch and three to four months at sea.

Please check back here for mission status and schedule.
