James Coxon M6JCX brings news of the UK High Altitude Society Arctic Challenge.

This is a challenge open to launch a balloon/payload from the UK that crosses the Arctic Circle before the next UKHAS Conference in September 2014.

The challenge will require both development of a payload, launching a floating balloon but also the ability to receive the data confirming it has crossed the Arctic Circle.

There is a prize for the first person to complete this challenge, obviously eternal glory but also a trophy and a cash prize.
