Oops...Spoke (er typed) too soon.  I just checked the raw packets from 
K5LSU-11 and it has lost the GPS fix, but is still transmitting that 
fact even FASTER than before and in a raw $GPGGA sentence as well.

Both balloons also seem to be attempting telemetry, but aprs.fi at 
least, doesn't like the packets.

Aren't shared frequencies and volunteer infrastructures amazing?

According to aprs.fi, K5LSU-11 was last heard just under an hour ago.  I
think it has taken itself out of the chaos, at least!
