update  3 May 2015


AEOLUS team, a team of greek radio amateurs, shall attempt
for a second time to fly up to stratosphere a pioneering payload
carrying amateur radio equipment. The special call sign
granted for this mission is J43VHF and the flight name is
Mission details
The balloon launch is scheduled for Sunday May, 10 2015
at 11:00 local time (i.e. eastern european summer time)
or else 08:00 UTC. However, launch time may be
affected by prevailing weather conditions or may be
delayed appropriately to ensure a safer landing point.
The launch place is a small, unused nowadays airport
at Plaka, a location very close to the town of
Megalopolis, located in the middle of Peloponnese,
the southern peninsula of Greece. (coordinates
37.424775, 22.115378).
The mission will offer not only the well known APRS
beacon with GPS and sensor data (coordinates, altitude,
temperature, battery voltage) but also an innovative 2WAY
communication setup.



Radio Amateurs will be able to communicate with the control
station of J43VHF:
1. on 144.220MHz (2M band) USB modulation, simplex
communication with the HAB itself, which bears 2W (two
watts) transmit power and a horizontal dipole antenna.
The control team will have an uplink to the HAB at 23cm

2. on 7.120MHz (40M band) LSB modulation, simplex
communication with the ground control station, which will
have the ordinary power of 100W and a multiband dipole.

3. additionally, the APRS beacon will be heard as J43VHF-11
on 438.100MHz (73cm band) at 1200bps though, instead
of common 9600bps speed used in UHF. The transmitter
will have 150mW power.

Special callsign for Greek High Altitude Balloon Team

11 May 2014

On 11 May 2014, 08:00 UTC (+-30min)  our team will launch a payload of amateur radio equipment to the stratosphere, with the aid of a High Altitude Balloon (HAB), from the area of Megalopolis - KM17BJ (Arkadia - Pelloponisos, Greece, SV3 area).

Our primary goal is the HAB to reach the stratosphere at an altitude over 30km. Our secondary goal is to gather propagation data via any station being able to copy and QSL our beacons.

The HAB will provide telemetry data via APRS (144.800MHz) under the callsign J43VHF-11. You can monitor our flight on http://aprs.fi .

Two CW beacons will also be active during the flight, one on 2m and one on 10M.

28,055 MHz (+-3KHz)

144,041 MHz (+-1KHz)

During the event, an on-spot HF base station will be QRV under the callsign J43VHF, providing live info on all preparations and flight data.

7,160 MHz(+-QRM) & Local frequency 433,475MHz (88,5Hz) & R2 & R0

The team members are:

SV1BJY – Yannis (Team Leader)

SV1QT – Sotiris

SV1GZT – Vangelis

SV3IEG – Dinos

SV1NJX – Chris

SV1OAA – Costas

SV4PBH – Manos

All HAM and SWL that will provide feedback via our online QSL report, will receive our special QSL card for free.
