      Time to gather a bit more information on your plans for launching your 
      balloon at GPSL...Right now we have 8 groups expressing interest in flying.
      Please reply to this email with the following info:
      (NOTE:  No Helium available this year....ONLY H2)
      
      1.  Balloon Size
      
      2.  Estimated Hydrogen requirements...We supply "K" bottles with about 
      196 cuft of H2.
      
      3.  Planned APRS Frequency and are you frequency flexible is needed?
      
      4.  Any other RF telemetry planned and frequencies
      
      Special note to EOSS...I will bring a backup balloon just in case! (it's 
      only a joke)
      
      Hydrogen is currently running about $58/bottle.  Once I get your 
      feedback, I am hoping to negotiate a discount.
      
      22 days and counting!!!
      
      73,
      mike
