KQ6RS and students have developed a WSPR buoy using a Skytracker WSPR board attached to 6 months worth of batteries and a loaded whip antenna. It was just deployed by a research boat about 380 miles SW of San Diego and is getting great WSPR coverage.  KQ6RS on WSPR,  KQ6RS-1 on APRS.FI ported with my Python program.
