         APRS Balloon Tracking Wanted - Raleigh Area - Feb 27

==== Please reply to:  Robert Krasowski <rkrasowski at yahoo. com> ====

Can you help with some APRS tracking, especially mobile?  Here's the
request I received from Robert Krasowski KB2PNM:

============ =
I am planning to launch balloon that hopefully will go up to 100,000
ft. Everything is completed, tested and I just waiting for time to
launch (27 Th of February).

I am in Asheboro. I plan to launch balloon from a location west from
my QTH. That will put landing zone close to Raleigh. Distance that my
balloon will travel as per latest jet stream speed and position give
traveling distance of balloon close to 200 miles with flight time 3h.
In order for me to catch up with the balloon I will have to drive

I am looking for somebody who can receive APRS from the car
(preferably) close to Raleigh. Balloon has GPS on board and APRS
transmitter, however, transmitting frequency will be 144.430MHz rather
than 144.390MHz. The reason for that is that I do not want to block
entire APRS network transmitting position of the balloon every 30 sec.

Check my Internet site www.anchorsat. com/balloon. html
Thanks in advance
