Hello Everyone,

Here is one news item which is more timely at the moment rather than waiting
for the weekend ANS news cycle. (We'll post a reminder in the ANS).

Interested stations on the USA East Coast may wish to follow this flight on
VHF. The HF beacon may likely be heard with wider coverage:

+ The Project Blue Horizon 6 high-altitude transatlantic balloon 
  flight is planned to launch on Friday, March 23 at 2300 EST (UTC-4) 
  from Owego, NY transmitting on 7.1023 and 10.1466 MHz CW with the
  N2XE call sign and 144.390 MHz FM APRS using the KD2AUD call sign. 
  Please send reports via e-mail to pbh18.data at gmail.com or manually 
  enter received data points at http://www.projectbluehorizon.com/
  More information is available on their web page.
