Here is one news item which is more timely at the moment rather than waiting
for the weekend ANS news cycle. (We'll post a reminder in the ANS).
Interested stations on the USA East Coast may wish to follow this flight on
VHF. The HF beacon may likely be heard with wider coverage:
+ The Project Blue Horizon 6 high-altitude transatlantic balloon
flight is planned to launch on Friday, March 23 at 2300 EST (UTC-4)
from Owego, NY transmitting on 7.1023 and 10.1466 MHz CW with the
N2XE call sign and 144.390 MHz FM APRS using the KD2AUD call sign.
