EOSS December 9th Face to Face meeting at

NOAA LASP Flight Recap

EOSS-199 was flown Saturday September 27th from Eaton.  Because of concerns about shock to the fiber optic cable during launch, we used a hand-over-hand launch technique, which is not something we normally do at EOSS.  It did result in a very smooth launch.  Unfortunately, while lowering the fiber there was a failure of some sort that caused the fiber to fracture.  The "fin" was recoverd from a back yard in Eaton with ~30 feet of fiber still attached.  

Welcome to the NEW EOSS.ORG

Welcome to the NEW EOSS.ORG.  As you can see, we are building a new and improved web presence for EOSS.  After 20 years, our webmaster Rick, N0KKZ, has decided to take a step back from running the site.  EOSS owes Rick a tremendous debt, and we really can not express enough our gratitude.
