[aprssig] K6RPT-12 Balloon Track

Looks like there may be some IGates in Newfoundland that might pick it 
up if it continues the current track.



This map was created with a View / Transport / IGate in an APRSIS32 
instance drawing from a full APRS-IS feed.  You can see the balloon in 
the lower left corner.  The IGates in Nova Scotia haven't gated a packet 
first yet, but I suspect they'll start picking it up as the trailing 
edge of the RF footprint leaves the continental US.  That black curved 
line down through the center is the leading edge of the balloon's 412 
mile radius RF footprint.

PS.  View / Transport / IGate shows stations that have been observed as 
acting as an IGate in packets.  It makes no assumptions on symbols, 
comments, or anything else.  Just the appearance of the station after 
one of the IGate-style q-constructs.
