N4KGL Beacon Rocket Launch Planned for Feb 12th

I plan to launch the N4KGL Beacon Rocket at approximately 1730 UTC 11:30 Central on Saturday February 12th from the Samson, AL launch site. The CW Beacon will be on 14.060 and identify as N4KGL/B. The power is 1 watt. The expected altitude is 1500 to 1700 feet and the flight time will be 80 to 100 seconds. If preparations are on schedule I'll send a post to at 1700 UTC. If there is a change of plans I'll post it to I would love to get any reports via or Please give the UTC time and note any variation of the signal. I will also have my SST QRP rig on at the site and may give a CQ 14.060 + or - after the rocket is recovered.

The launch is with SouthEast Alabama Rocketry Society SEARS and my N4KGL blog is
