[aprssig] [aprsisce] Transatlantic balloon attempt

It should have CW on HF

30 meter 10.14661 MHz 05, 25, 45 every hour

40 meter 7.10241 MHz 10, 30, 50 every hour

I see stations in the Azores are set to receive APRS on 144.390 to help out

Setup here for HF and VHF should the balloon come close

Best laid plans and all, the balloon is actually flying APRS as KD2AUC-1 and
using a House symbol.  Currently about 180 miles off the coast of
Massachusetts at 106,554 feet and moving very slowly.  Putting out a 402
mile radius footprint from that altitude, so there should be APRS tracking
for a while longer.

    Supposed to be CW.  See

During the flight amateurs worldwide are encouraged to monitor the N2XE CW
telemetry beacons at 7.1023 and 10.1466 MHz. The balloon is also equipped
with an APRS beacon at 144.39 MHz using the call sign KD2AUD.

Im surprised at the lack of information on that site.  But glad to see it is
up.  I am seeing it here in MD.  It is out off the tip of long island now at
9 AM. 

But I have heard nothing on HF.  Are those published freqs the carrier or
dial freqs?  Is it CW or packet?
