I can run two channels on my radio, but with it hooked up to the laptop,
that's a bit of a challenge.

I have the van set up to seat 4+ strap down 1 helium tank.  Blake is helping
with driving (so I can mess with APRS) but I'll have room for 2 more.  I'd
strongly suggest you guys be in a different vehicle so we have a little
radio diversity.  I know Chris is borrowing a car so he can take more.  I
have an external antenna for my (not very well tested) APRS receiving rig
too.

I don't know who else is going.  Albert is presumably meeting us out there
since he'll be coming from south bay.  There are some other folks who have
mentioned they might meet us out there too.  It's my understanding that
we'll meet at the 76 station near where we launched from last time, out near
Tracy.
