[aprssig] slightly OT: balloon without APRS aloft now

Our fourth superpressure balloon, Soli Deo Gloria 4, is aloft right now.  We
are trying to characterize these balloons before risking an APRS payload -
if this flight goes well, then SDG-5 will carry a MicroTrak 300.

The balloon is heading to the south-southeast from Detroit - it should be
over north-central Ohio soon and heading almost due south from there.

SDG-4 is carrying a CW beacon on 28.636.  Any reception reports - especially
those with bearing information and station coordinates (I can always look
your station up on Findu) - would be much appreciated!
