I've sent APRS messages to the CT1AKV and EA7CRT IGates in Portugal and
Spain respectively, but have so far only received acks but no human
response. Hopefully they'll see the messages and possibly switch over
to 144.390 to receive the balloon if/when it gets that far.

PS. Here's the IGates in the area. Not a lot to go on. The red circle
are 1/2 PHG coverage.
