[aprssig] APRN status?

Is there any standard frequency for APRN?  What would be a good one for 
a balloon?

If there's nothing else going on there, I'd be inclined to use 144.99 
since that's what my alternate APRS IGate receiver will be listening to 
anyway.  I suspect there might be more activity down in the LA area, though.
