Updated Callsign here from my search of QRZ is 2E0RJH (Intermediate License
now, previously M6RJH), I'm assuming giving the bio that its the same chap.
Amazing pictures in any case.

MR6RJH has gotten a lot of airplay this weekend for launching a weather 
balloon with a Canon camera, GPS, and transmitter attached. Saw two 
different stories about the spectacular photos he got at 22 miles up, 
first on the Rachel Maddow show on MSNBC Friday night, then again on the 
NBC morning news show yesterday. Neither story mentioned he was a ham 
(unless I missed it), but I suspected he was a ham since he said he used 
a transmitter with a GPS to track and recover the payload after the 
balloon burst. Finally caught his name this morning and was able to look 
him up and get his call sign.

You can see the photos here: http://www.robertharrison.org/

Dunno if he was using APRS to track the balloon. Anybody know for sure?

73,
