Re: Australian Rocketry still in business?

This is a question that a few people would like an answer to. Me included! I placed an order last October (yes, October 2019!) for an item that was listed as in stock. I finally received a response one month ago (September 2020) saying that the item I ordered was not available, although it is still ...

Re: NanoVNA V2: An Inexpensive and Effective Vector Network Analyser

Thanks for the original heads up OTT. Mine arrived last week and it's definitely more useful than the V1 model with the extended range! It will get a good workout shortly with my patch array.

Re: Avionics bay for HPV4PoC

Nice work there Strud. Looking forward to seeing this fly!

I was wondering about your use of BP ejection at high altitude. Have you ruled out using CO2 ejection?

Keep up the great work.

Re: NanoVNA V2: An Inexpensive and Effective Vector Network Analyser

Yep, I'm in too! I already have the cable & calibration kit, but I'll definitely get the case with it.

My current RF project is a cylindrical patch array on a 98mm airframe for a 921 MHz tracker Tx. I hope to do the same for the GPS L-band Rx, too.

Re: NanoVNA V2: An Inexpensive and Effective Vector Network Analyser

That’s a great write up OTT. I have the V1 model and found it very useful. However, the 3 GHz range of the V2 model makes it great value. It’s no Rohde & Schwarz, but for that price I’d forgive its shortcomings.

Re: Lack of posts....

Yep, the fall off has been quite noticeable. You could be forgiven for putting it down to the crap year it’s been with fires, floods and pestilence. I’m expecting plagues of locusts next! I think our group has only had two L/MPR launches and no HPR launches this year. There’s always stuff to do in t...

Re: AMRS Insurance

My original question regarding insurance was a genuine request, as a member of an AMRS affiliated club, to elicit confirmation from AMRS directly. The fact that the affiliated club can no longer operate under the current arrangement due to an insurance issue, suggests that all AMRS affiliated clubs ...

Re: Launch disappointment......

Whatever the reason, it's not a good look for a space-launching wannabe to spit an igniter at a well publicized launch. However, I really hope they are successful with take two.

AMRS Insurance

What is the current status of AMRS insurance? There are rumours (?) that it hasn’t been renewed. Is this fact or fiction?
