Launched from Santa Maria at 10:00 AM.  1200 gram balloon with 140 gram 
payload, transmitting on 144.39 and 144.99.  Comment text shows battery 
voltage, temperature, and barometric pressure.  Periodic status text 
shows maximum altitude attained (hopefully, that was added this morning) 
and GPS parameters.

No landing prediction has been run, this is a one-way trip, testing some 
new hardware, including a Prolific GPS receiver that the manufacturer 
assures me has firmware specially loaded for high-altitude operation.

PSK63 APRS activity)  now tracking the ballloon,
