High altitude balloon experiment using APRS this weekend.

For some time (two or three years at least), my brother (N1VG) has been actively involved with developing, manufacturing, and selling APRS trackers. Some of these trackers and GPS units have been deployed in high altitude / near space / edge of space balloon projects. He decided it was time to do a project himself, and combine it with a camping trip to our favorite spot in the Mojave desert, Red Rock Canyon State Park. The details of the high altitude balloon experiment are included on his website. To track the balloon, check out Map at Findu.com and Google Earth: http://argentdata.com:8080 (add as a network link)
