I think it's fair to say comms are important if you want to attempt the N-Prize. We had some passive ideas a few years ago such as a reflective balloon like the NASA Echo project but locating a balloon that size would be difficult with no locating beacon and to get it to a size that would be usable you would need a location beacon. Anyway you have to think about your "link budget" For a beacon this is not too difficult to figure.
