<Hi folks,
<Does anyone know of a person or group that has flown or tried 
<to fly an "amateur radio high altitude balloon" here in 
<Australia? If you aren't familiar with it, the idea is to send 
<a weather balloon into "near space", altitudes as high as 
<100,000 feet (30ish KM) with a small payload (perhaps a couple 
<of KG) using APRS to track the flight.  There is quite a lot 
<of activity in the US (see www.arhab.org or  
<I'm quite interested in doing this, but I'd like to leverage 
<any experience others in Australia may already have.
