the Arizona Near Space research group will be launching a high altitude balloon with a ham radio payload on Saturday at 0900 mst (1600ut) from Maricopa, AZ, about 30 miles south of Phoenix. the balloon will be carrying a cross band repeater and APRS digi and an SSTV system. Expected burst altitude is about 90,000+ feet. this should give a foot print of about 450ish miles at max altitude. If it stays in the central AZ area, this would reach out into SoCal, Western New Mexico, southern Utah & Nevada and northern Sonora 

I'll be trying to work the Cross band repeater and if time allows the APRS digi.

Detail including frequencies and such are at www.ansr.org. 

Kevin KF7MYK, if it get high enough, you should be well in range. This sounds like something you';d be interested in. Listen for my call.
