      I'm receiving a nice signal on 20m here in Alabama from Jonathan Trappe's manned trans-Atlantic cluster balloon now flying just east of Maine.

      14.0956 MHz (about 1880 Hz in the waterfall display) at 00,10,20,30,40,50 min marks. Two 110 baud ASCII RTTY (170hz shift, 8N1) transmissions as follows:

      $$NG0X,19,12:09:59,4711.74,-06652.88,6899,10,8.72,24*6F

          Johnathan is also sending out APRS packets using the KJ4GQV callsign.

          http://aprs.fi/KJ4GQV

          It is unfortunate that Johnathan still has not learnt that
          WIDE1-1,WIDE2-1 is an unacceptable path from altitude. The good news
          is that he will soon be spending a lot of time over the ocean where
          that poor path won't be causing issues on the ground.

                                        I'm also polling the Habitat.HabHub.com database and updating an HB-NG0X APRS object for any posits reported there.  There's only been 5 packets reported and the last was just about 3 hours ago.

                                                and wwhen he was low with the delorme it looking at the time line is possible just like he did before leaving land. testing altitude controls etc. what i was referring to with the mic-e is not this smooth drop or gain like we are seeing in the delorme track  but when it gots from 15K to 800 in one minute or sends out 0 for altitude.

                                                  If you click on the dots, it will show you the altitude on the Delorme site.

                                                  I haven't noticed any altitude discontinuity since he was re-acquired via APRS having gone high enough to regain line-of-sight to the IGates:
