2018 APRS Balloon launch schedule

As you may have seen before, I've posted upcoming APRS balloon launches. There are a good opportunity to hone APRS skills and or Ham skills, and you can participate in a number of ways. You can listen in to comms, track the balloons directly with your APRS rig, or follow the balloons on the web with aprs.fi . Our preflight nets (8pm the prior night) and comms are receivable in most places around the Denver area, so you are welcome to listen and check in. You can also get more directly involved by coming out to the launch or follow us on the tracking expedition.
One of the feedbacks has been not enough notice, so I'm going to post our preliminary schedule here now. However, you should always check for the latest at www.eoss.org
