Australian ham Andy
Nguyen, VK3YT, just keeps outdoing himself. We've reported several times
recently on Andy's successes in flying ham radio-equipped Mylar party balloons
around the world. Now, the ARRL Letter reports, his latest effort - pico
balloon PS-46 - made two complete trips around the world and was into its third
loop before it was forced down in the Indian Ocean by bad weather. The balloon
transmitted WSPR and JT9 signals on 20 meters and was tracked by hams around
the world, including at least two in the United States.
