An ordinary party balloon equipped with a 434 MHz solar-powered transmitter launched by Leo Bodnar (M0XER) from Silverstone, UK travelled east across Asia and has reached Alaska.  Two of Leo’s other balloons are still airbourne between Japan and Mongolia.  Talk about endurance from an ordinary object!  Aloha de Russ (KH6JRM).
