Oops, here is the info on the Colorado Balloon this Saturday:

> ... around ~630 AM MDT (1230UTC) this Saturday (April 10th),
>... going to be attempting to stream the launch and recovery 
> live on the internet....
> ... carrying 24 lbs of [student] payloads...
> from Windsor, CO at 0700 MDT. The balloon will ascend to 
> ~102,000 feet, burst, and the payload will then descend 
> under parachute. The current prediction has the landing 
> at ~0915 MDT near the Colorado/Nebraska border, 
> ~90 miles downrange from launch.
> The balloon will be carrying an APRS beacon, 
> callsign AE0SS-11, on 144.340 MHz , as well as 
> a CW DF Beacon on 147.555 MHz.  At apogee, both 
> beacons should be copyable throughout Colorado 
> and well into surrounding states.
