Hi Joe,

That would be neat.  People do it with balloons every now and then.  I've
always wanted to try flying a balloon with an APRS package, but we're so
close to the coast I'm sure it would go out to sea.

Probably the best thing is to set up a date and time and see if you can draw
up some interest of APRS users within a couple of hundred miles that want to
relay through your airborne digi.  I'm interested so send me an e-mail if
you ever want to give it a shot.  There are a couple of guys I can think of
that are active on APRS satellites that I'm sure would be interested.  KB2M
(NJ), KF4OTN (SC), and W3AFE (MD) immediately come to mind.

73!

Thanks for the advice.
Looks like WIDE2-2 and RELAY,WIDE2-2 for the boat and WIDE1-1 for the 
airplane. Speaking of airplanes, has anyone ever made a flying digi?
I would be willing to fly any experimental setup anyone can come up with. I 
*think* I can make my PK-12 relay anything from an alias, but so far every 
time I use it sans PC it goes for awhile and then locks up, never to work 
again until reset and reconfigured.
