Since we had a FRS radio hackit a while back, [Weirdguy] sent this in. [Scott] gutted a frs radio and added it to his rocket chassis. It’s powered on for the flight, and he can listen to the rockets progress. To locate the rocket once it’s on the ground, he built a 462Mhz Yagi antenna to use with a Radio Shack hand held scanner. This is old hat for most Ham Radio guys – they do ‘Fox Hunts‘ for hidden transmitters just for fun.
