Solar Powered flight is underway from Dallas to St. Loouis.  See the flight.

But since this is APRS and only those in front of a PC can see this, we
need people in RF range of the flight to maintain an OBJECT on APRS
transmitted on RF, so that all those APRS mobiles in the area can be
alerted that it is in their area and they can see it.



Imagine an airplane the wingspan of a Jumbo jet that weighs less than a car.



But help out your fellow ham and do what APRS was designed to do… provide
INFO in the field to mobile operators.  Please use the object SOLAR1 so
that subsequent updates will replace older positions.
