Very interesting Bob, but I'm a little doubtful about the temperatures.
Looking at aprs.fi just now (12:20 UTC):
M0XER-3 over South Korea is at almost 42000 feet, yet the temperature
registers as 10.700C.
M0XER-4 over Alaska is at almost 40000 feet, and the temperature seems
more reasonable at -41.000C. But *exactly* .000C? Hmmm.
M0XER-6 over NW Canada is at almost 44000 feet, where the temperate is
reported at 19.500C.
Did I miss something obvious here?
