Chip Bisbee (KA0BMU) - Who is coordinating the ground station setup?

Mike (W5VSI) - Rick is coordinating ground station setup. Mike will go down Fri afternoon to do setup. Mike pointed out that Chip had offered his HT to replace the blown transmitter in the Air Force Academy's payload. Mike offered these profound words, "No greater love hath any ham than he who gives up his HT for a balloon flight."

Merle McCaslin (K0YUK) - Talked to Gill and Dr. Foscia. Both plan to fly again. Merle appreciates everyone's efforts.

Greg (K0ELM) - Two items: 1. T&R are out of map overlays, can N0STZ make more? 2. There's a group of Colo. Sprgs. hams that want a T&R workshop. Keep an ear open for an annoucement of the workshop.

Larry (N0STZ) - He still has 15 to 20 overlays. Making more will take some extra effort because of changes in his computers at work.

Greg DeWit (N0JMH) - Wants to be added to the T&R team for the flight on the 6th.
