TWIN FALLS – The elephant-sized white balloon bucked wildly in Saturday morning’s west winds.
Seven men anchored the helium-filled sphere in a field at 9 a.m. Saturday northwest of the Washington Street North College Road intersection near the College of Southern Idaho campus.
The balloon was on a course of no return: High above Magic Valley it would capture video and photo images for the group of amatuer radio operators.

Radio Enthusiasts Convene at Hara
TROTWOOD Ã¢â‚¬â€ From state-of-the-art electronics to relic ham radios and parts, it’s anyone’s guess what you’ll find at Hamvention Ã¢â‚¬â€ the annual amateur radio operator convention held at Hara Arena.
Organized by volunteers of the Dayton Amateur Radio Association, the convention is the world’s largest ham radio gathering Ã¢â‚¬â€ with more than 20,000 people expected to turn out.
In the time of Internet and cellphones, ham radio is closer to heritage than technology. But this ancient means of radio communication is, against all expectations, fascinating the young. They are joining ham groups in impressive numbers.
Like this group of 12 fans who have gathered in a flat on a lazy Sunday. These are the members of The Mumbai Amateur Radio Society. There is visible excitement on their faces. They have just made their first contact of the day with a person who has an Italian call sign (identification code), but is currently in Saudi Arabia. The contact’s call sign is IT9ESW, a language these people understand.
Eighteen-year-old Bhoumik Shah, a science undergraduate, is trying to listen into the conversation between IT9ESW and MARS, which has 220 members of whom 40 are in the age group of 15 to 21. A ham radio operator is an amateur who uses advanced equipment to communicate with other enthusiasts around the world.
