 Sorry for the short notice but things
 have been a bit hectic.
 On Sunday morning, September 30 I
 launched my first floater, VA5BNC-15 
 from Saskatoon, (52.1N, 106.6W).  It
 survived the first night and has 
 made it all the way from Saskatoon to
 somewhere off the east coast of 
 Newfoundland.  If I'm very lucky, will
 make it across the pond in the 
 next 48 hours.  It should switch to
 144.800 in the mid-atlantic, but if 
 there are any European stations that
 can listen on 144.390, that would 
 be appreciated.  During the day, it
 beacons once per minute at 13 
 seconds after the minute and at night,
 it's on a roughly 15 minute cycle.
 Please pass this on to anyone who many
 be interested.
 73, Bruce - VE5BNC
