    &nbsp;I still say that 600gm are sufficient for what we are doing&nbsp; 2.5 -
    3 lb payload remember we need about $50 to $75 of helium to fill it.
    &nbsp;&nbsp; Big balloons need more gas and are only need if we want a gbigger
    payload.&nbsp; the big ones make sense when we put up a repeater or
    several radios .&nbsp; Two trackers should be less that 1 lb. <br>
    <br>
    Thats my two cents, I will work with what ever we end up with.<br>
