A small (2 party balloon) payload sending FM CW on 433.72 +/- MHz may be
heard within a few dozen miles of Annapolis Maryland around Noon on Wed.
It sends LAT/LON/ALT using a modified CW and a KeyFob 10mw FM transmitter.



The balloon will only go to 5000’ and wont have a range beyond 50 miles or
less.



See details: http://aprs.org/balloons.html



You will see local APRS bulletins from the chase team, but You wont see the
position on APRS unless someone has time to take the decoded LAT/LON/ALT in
CW and enter them as an object.
