What would be the legality (maritime and otherwise) of a floating solar 
powered APRS equipped raft? I am thinking along the lines of a Styrofoam 
NERF-ball type approach that would pose little danger to ships but could 
be big enough for solar panels, APRS, GPS, weather station, camera and 
other experiments . Something that could serve as a relay as well as a 
data collection experiment. For comms, maybe APRS plus some high speed 
satellite data uplink, commercial or amateur. Think of it as an ocean 
going satellite!
