A new version of the ArduinoTrack firmware was released that fix two bugs in the tracker. Both issues are considered important, and one of them is critical if the tracker will be used in the Eastern or Southern hemispheres.
Flight 2018b's purpose will be to test the final design of the new ArduinoTrack Flex controllers. The PCB Revision 1 has two successful flights on it, and Revision 2 is currently under construction. The launch location will be from the parking lot of the Hutchinson Regional Airport.
Log Konverter, a tool long used for creating KML map files from APRS data files, has now been updated to support arbitrary datasets from telemetry data. Telemetry contained in the comments portion of the packet can be exported to a spreadsheet.
