In this show we have Chip Margelli N7JA talking about Winter Field day. Also we will talk about Chip and his appearance on the Jay Leno Tonight Show where he did the CW vs Text shootout contest.  We also talk with Bill Brown WB8ELK who is know as the Master of High Altitude Balloons.  We discuss launching a pico balloon for the show in a couple weeks and will be tracking it each prior week on the show.  Some of these balloons have been up over a year and around the world 40-50 times while reporting their position with aprs or wspr.
