This balloon didn't have APRS on it - for ~98% of its flight it would have
been out of range anyway.

However, there is another long-distance APRS-equipped flight in progress


This particular balloon transmits daytime only, so between that and needing
ground stations listening on 144.39 the data may be hit and miss.  It's
been aloft for about 8 days, launched from central California and now near
the Caspian Sea.
