      Last year the CNSP team managed a transatlantic flight, I hope they will frequency switch between 144.390 and 144.800. If the flight path does do Northern Spain or France should be heard from the UK .

      Those in the USA please listen out for it. And of course give reports. You might note I am a big balloon attempt fanJ

      The initial course at float altitude should be around 080, so it should run a little north of last year's track.  I expect it will go over central Colorado then along the Kansas/Nebraska border and on east.  

      I plan to work on a more detailed track but in general it should run a ways north of the 2011 track if it floats as expected.  If it does cross the Atlantic, I think it'll be northern Spain or France rather than southern Spain and the Med.

      California Near Space Project (CNSP) is scheduled to launch a stratospheric floater on Sunday, December 2, 2012, at 4:45 p.m. (PST), weather permitting.

      Mark Conner, N9XTN, from NSTAR is working with us on this project and has given CNSP the final ok to launch.

      CNSP will be filling indoors using a floating arm scale which allows the fill to be very accurate.

      APRS updates will be every two minutes with a total run time of 60 hours. The APRS tracker will report voltage during the flight.
