Blue Horizon info update.
APRS callsign KD2AUC-1.
30m and 40m beacon callsign N2XE.
APRS on 144.39.
HF info: CW mode, transmitting morse code lat , long, altitude, battery
30m at 10.14658 05, 25, 45 minute of every hour.
40m at 7.10231 MHz 10, 30, 50 minute of every hour.
No Positions received for KD2AUC-1 since last night.
Mission info at http://www.projectbluehorizon.com/#mission, including
reports that hams have received 30m position beacons, but for some
reason they are not publishing the lat,lons! Must be a secret<g>.
These locations apparently are indicated on the map at
http://www.projectbluehorizon.com/#flight, marked with a U. Apparently,
a blue marker with a U is an updated prediction. Significance of the
icons and letters not indicated clearly on the site. The icons sure
don't seem to correspond with the Prediction legend colors.
