Since there's been no "no-go" message from Bill, I'm assuming that
we're "go" for the test. I'm packing up the car now; we might be a bit
late in arriving.

The APRS gear was tested earlier this AM. Packets are being received,
and the APRS's battery-voltage telemetry reports 11.1 volts.

Not bad for an 8-pack of NiMH AAs that should only theoretically go to
9.6 V!
