[aprssig] Balloon DFing on APRS

A little of topic I guess but a lot of balloon groups send location data on
HF using RTTY 300 Baud or DomX22 and use and use dl-fldigi to receive and
send to the internet.

I would certainly announce your flight on http://www.arhab.org/ and the
balloon_sked, ballooning and gpsl.

That will at the very least get you more people attempting to track the
balloon.

I am a member of all those, as is I think Lynn, so can post the details for
you if you don't want to join those groups

I'm not really familiar with DF activities.  Can you dummy up a set of 
reports and send it to me so I know what sort of thing to expect?  I'll 
put them into objects so you can visually see what we'll have to work 
with as the real reports start coming in.

PS.  How did your ITEMinMSG object go last night?  May I ask what you 
used to generate it (APRX76?) and why you sent it to TESTING instead of 
a real station?
