That's good to hear, Bob.  I was just thinking the other day about how I
could put together a solar-powered bouy with a string of temperature sensors
to toss overboard next time I'm out on a scuba trip to the islands.  It's
probably not practical to have a small embedded processor do the orbit
calculations to figure out when ISS is going to be overhead, though.  And as
big and low as it is, I imagine the keps would be out of date too fast
anyway.

Who's done bouys before?  Being right here on the coast maybe I could get
one of those solar balloons and do a combined balloon/bouy project.  =]
