Unfortunately, it looks like my new Pockettracker (which I hadn't
cold-tested prior to the flight) didn't like the balmy weather up there and
decided to take a little break...  The LiSO2 battery should be fine and the
Etrex has never had a problem.  

We might see some packets later tonight (I hope) on descent - if it's not
too far out to sea.
