The tools

HAM-RADIO
This ICOM 706 MkII G Ham-Radio gear will be on the Airplane. Transmitting on the Amateur-Bands will be possible with a Sunair long wire antenna, which can be extended and retracted during flight.


THE OXYMETER
This little gadget measures the oxygen saturation of the blood and the heartbeat of the person holding his finger into the slot as shown. This allows to continuously monitor the oxygen saturation of the blood during flights at high altitude. Right now it shows 94 percent of oxygen saturation and a heartbeat of 70 per min.



HAM-RADIO RELAIS WEISSFLUHJOCH

This radio station acts as a relais station during the flight of HB-DGL

 

SURVIVAL
This EPIRB is a sophisticated device that contains:

  • A 5-watt radio transmitter operating at 406 MHz
  • A 0.25-watt radio transmitter operating at 121.5 MHz
  • A GPS receiver

Once activated, both of the radios start transmitting. Approximately 24,000 miles (39,000 km) up in space, a GOES weather satellite in a geosynchronous orbit can detect the 406-MHz signal. Embedded in the signal is a unique serial number, and, if the unit is equipped with a GPS receiver, the exact location of the radio is conveyed in the signal as well. If the EPIRB is properly registered, the serial number lets the Coast Guard know who owns the EPIRB. Rescuers in planes or boats can home in on the EPIRB using either the 406-MHz or 121.5-MHz signal.
