BEAR-2 Telemetry Data

Data, except for atmospheric pressure, was calibrated and accurate. RF problems that affected Bear-1 data appear to have been solved and we got a nice set of readings this time. No telemetry data transmissions were missed and only 2 APRS position reports were missed.

It was nice to see that the cross-band radio did not overheat, especially at higher elevations where there is little air to conduct heat away, and even though the radio was almost constantly transmitting it's temperature never got higher than just a nice warm 40 degrees C.

The coldest exterior temperature was −30C on decent at 36,312 ft. and coldest interior temperature was 6C.
