 Sure ...  Or a GPS V with the same capabiity  ... OR an old dumb terminal ... OR a simple terminal program (read GPS, change parameter, send), OR a Basic program  OR   my serial I/O Excel spreadsheet  OR  Heck one of the 13 or so Radioshack Color Computers in my basement (or any other brand gathering dust).

   If this balloon is like that last one and has command and control ability ...

  Sounds like this group needs some serious mentoring on the electronics end rather than griping on the sig. If someome is up to it.
