That is why I want so much to continue the 145.825 digipeater on as many
satellites as we can*.
But we can’t seem to inspire any of the other HUNDREDS of satellite
building groups to consider it.
I think there were over 100 cubesats launched last year. None with 145.825
*(and convince the leave-it-on-24/7/365-not-moving user satellite stations
to stop beaconing unattended!)

Too bad we can't get the balloon to switch to the ISS frequency and use the
digi off of it when over the oceans and arctic!

We're a tough crowd to please...
First circumnavigation of the globe by an amateur radio carrying
balloon, and as it passes the milestone...
"So, can you get another lap out of it?"
What about poor old M0XER-3? It's still out there! Sure it got waylaid
in Nunavut for a while, and let M0XER-4 slip on by... It needs some

If the winds are playing nice, and the fates allow, it should be
coming into range fairly soon.
