I know WSPR doesn't get much mention here but something pretty amazing is going on and might be of interest - a QRPp (10 mW) WSPR beacon was attached to a very small balloon in Ontario 66 days ago and is about to complete its 5th circumnavigation of the globe.

This evening and tomorrow present the best opportunities for stations in NA to decode the balloon's transmissions on 30m.
