>>
>>  Six fully equipped ham radio balloons launching from
>>  southern New Hampshire this Friday and Saturday!!!
>>
>>  CAPSAT (http://www.mv.com/ipusers/llb/capsat.html)
>>
>>  Launching a total of six radio equipped balloons,
>>  two with ATV, two with crossband repeaters, all with APRS,
>>  Friday and Saturday from the grounds of the
>>  Hosstraders Hamfest/Flea in Hopkinton, NH May 3 and 4.
>>
>>  Launches at 10 AM, 12 noon, and 2 PM
>>  (times subject to adjustment, please see CAPSAT website).
>>
>>  12 noon each day for the ATV balloon.
>>
>>  Most on this list will be in radio range, although these
>>  balloons are being inflated to burst a little lower than normal
>>  to aid in recovery and to land short of the ocean.
>>
>>  At 40,000 feet the radio range will be about 240
>>  miles.  That covers from Montreal to NYC, and as
>>  far west as Syracuse (don't forget to give the balloon
>>  time to rise to altitude if you're out more than 50 miles).
>>
>>  As a rough guess these balloons may reach peak altitude
>>  in under an hour (35-55 minutes).  I've posted a radio range
>>  map for CAPSAT on HABLIC website.
>>
>>  This should be a tremendous event for northeast balloon
>>  enthusiasts.
