OLHZN-5 was the fifth high altitude weather balloon flight for Overlook Horizon High Altitude Balloons. This flight launched on March 26, 2017 at exactly 12:25:27pm EDT (16:25:27 UTC) and featured some tech changes to our tracking apparatus to resolve our radio tracking issues that we experienced on OLHZN-3 and OLHZN-4. This flight debuted our newly designed custom circuit boards for better reliability and to eliminate possible problems on launch day.
