I added the PLOT of all the 46 APRS balloons on Eclipse day to my Balloon


I assume these were trackers on all the 50 NASA balloons launched that day
by students all across the country to stream live video of the event.  But
there is not a single mention of APRS on their web page, and not a single
Ham has mentioned involvement here on the APRSSIG or on AMSAT.  Yet all the
balloons had Ham calls.  I’d like someone involved to document the HAM
involvement in this massive undertaking and describe the APRS portion so I
can add it to the web page.

And why does FINDU.COM find about 148 Balloons in the USA, and I can only
count about 50 along the path and only a few more..?
