The CAPE Team flew Crawsat IV Saturday to 90,000 and below is the view 
from 90,000 ft. The team was unable to find the balloon Saturday and 
returned Sunday and within 5 min walked right up to the balloon.

The team at Auburn final got com with Aubesat, below is a video of the 
pass. The signal is very week because they did not get full deployment 
of their antenna.

Here is a video of the 9:36 AM cst pass.

Hi All

Weather permitting the CAPE team will launch a balloon on June 9at 08:30 
CST that will go to an altitude of approximately 100,000 ft. Our 
prediction is that it will land in the Lake Charles, LA area two hours 
after launch. The call sign on the balloon is W5UL-11 on frequencies  of 
144.390 MHz and 435.000 MHz. There is a nice tracking map at url: 
http://aprs.fi/#!mt=roadmap&z=11&call=a%2FW5UL-11&timerange=3600 
<http://aprs.fi/#%21mt=roadmap&z=11&call=a%2FW5UL-11&timerange=3600> 
that will show the balloon on a Google map . Details of the balloon can 
be seen at url: http://ulcape.org/

Thanks
