Sunday Massachusetts balloon launch

                 Southern New England CW and RTTY Balloon
                             SkyQuest 3
  Region:             Eastern Massachusetts/ Taunton
  Date/Time:          Sunday, May 21 / sometime after noontime
  Location:           Taunton, Massachusetts at the Miles Standish
                      Industrial Park office of National Weather
  Coordinates:        41.90 north
                      71.09 west
  Telemetry:          inside temp, outside temp for CW;
                      two temps and battery voltage in RTTY.
                      Note: neither of the following signals
                      is FM mode or audio on FM; signals may be
                      sensed or noticed easily on a regular
                      FM receiver, but demodulation requires a
                      CW receiver (typically a SSB receiver).
                      ~144.0048 MHz CW and on-off keyed RTTY
                      (vertically polarized); frequency subject
                      to several KHz drift due to extreme cold
                      temperature exposure during flight.
