Hi, I came across your website when looking for some other information. 
Some other hams and I here at the university where I work have put together 
a package to be launched this coming weekend, Oct. 31st.  It will be 
launched from Jacksons Mill, WV at approx. 8am.  Frequencies will be 144.39 
APRS N8RDT-11, 144.34 APRS K8LG-11, and a cross band repeater on 147.555 
out/445.825 in with a 123.0 PL.  We do not have a webpage or anything, just 
a couple of guys launching a balloon..... If you want a mission name, call 
it WV-1.  THought I would let you know incase you wanted to put it on your 
announcements page.  Thanks,

Larry Rowe, N8RDT
