The Vienna Wireless Society is planning our 8th amateur radio balloon
flight on May 1st. Info on previous flights can be found at
http://www.viennawireless.org/balloon/index.php. WWS-8 is probably a
1200 gram balloon with 2m and 70cm APRS carried by a single 2-3 pound
payload. Might be bigger balloon as some discussion of breaking our
earlier height record.
We have used the EOSS web pages to learn of others experiences.
