 OK   I've set HeightTrack to color-code from black through 
brn-red-org-yellow from 0 -100,000 feet.  This will make the tracks of 
any vehicles on the desert floor come out black while the balloon should 
have a vari-colored track. 

Are you going to have any HF radio out there?    I think a 40 M or 60 M 
NVIS dipole setup might be ideal for the distances involved.
