Pictures from 2014-08-03 roll

Using the time determined previously, I was able to predict where pictures were taken allowing better correlation and identification of the location when the pictures were snapped.  We have positive ID on the Solomon Islands and Percival Lakes pictures.

I have been attempting to get the Kenwood TH-D7A to send to the satellite using an "eggbeater" antenna, but have been unsuccessful so far.  The first tries were my fault due to misconfiguration, but I have tried at least 3 times with the correct configuration so I don't know why it isn't working, other than my latitude is a little far North for ideal "eggbeater" pattern.  I also need to check the antenna tuning and radio output power.

IMU data from the 2014-08-03 "roll" seems null but I put it and BATT data in the archives anyway.

Here's the best pictures from the roll:
