My HT on a rubber duck just north of Georgia picked up 12 APRS balloons
during the eclipse  .

When I got home, I counted 244 APRS Balloons on Eclipse day on FINDU.COM.
Subtracting out the 96 from other parts of the world that day left 148 over
the USA.  But looking at the map, I only could find about 46 along the
track?  Where were the others?

I cant get a plot of all the USA ones since the filters on APRSFI wont work
that big.

Looking for someone who can plot all the APRS balloons that day on one map?

Mark, KE6BB posted a plot of all the "Flight" symbols during the eclipse.
Most are balloons, but a few aircraft mixed in as well.  But Ill have to
post it on a web page to share it with the group.
