4220679 story Cornell Grad Students Go Ballooning (Again) 58 Posted by timothy on Sunday April 19, 2009 @07:16PM from the ithaca-is-gorges dept. ballooner writes "A group of Cornell University graduate students are attempting to break the Amateur Radio Ballooning duration record this weekend. The project is a continuation from last year when some other Cornell grad students broke the altitude record. The progress of the team can be tracked via their Twitter feed or by monitoring their APRS beacons. For all the HAMs out there, downlinks are available on a 30m wavelength, too."
