Subject: ATV altitude record

It looks like Mike Henkowski, KC6CCC, owns the ATV altitude record after a
rocket launch last Saturday, Nov 23 at Black Rock Nevada.  His 2417 MHz ATV
signal gave a view of the earth all the way up to 53 miles, almost 280,000
feet before dropping back to hit the dry lake bed floor.  The video package
survived the impact and helped him home in on the signal seven miles from the
launch site.  The transmitter consisted of a FM ATV e***r, originally
designed by Mike at his company, Microtek, for Part 15 license free use,
driving a homebrew 1 watt amplifier.
