The following came in via an email list that I subscribe to and I thought I would share it with you .
Sunday morning, July 11, 2010, at around 9:00 am BRAQ will launch another high altitude ballon.
This email has been sent to Clubs from Ontario, Québec, Maritimes and North-East of the USA, hoping that a large number of amateurs will be able to establish QSO
The main payload will consist in a VHF-UHF crossband repeater available to the amateur community while airborne.
THE FREQUENCIES AS BEEN CHANGED
The repeater input frequency is 445.525 Mhz with a tone of 103.5 Hz and the ouptput frequency is 145.560 Mhz. The power output of the repeater should be around .5 watts
This will be a bilingual (French and English) directed net and net control with be Gerry VE2AW. Check-ins are invited to use the phonetic alphabet and then will be required to provide their nickname and location (QTH). A commemorative QSL card will be issued to all stations which are confirmed by the net control station.
