[aprssig] kc0mic-11 unproto path

KC0MIC-11 balloon put over 40 packets per minute on the network for for TWO HOURS, and maintained a count of over 30 per minute for over THREE HOURS.

This was because the balloon was set to the moronic path of RELAY,WIDE3-3.

Whatever cretin was responsible for the mission planning on this balloon flight, if this was done deliberately, needs a two by four up side the head. It virtually shut down the network for three hours. Unbelievable!

If anyone has a way to contact this "amateur", I would love to hear it.

  This is a balloon southeast of Kansas City, Mo. It is reporting an altitude of 76,000 feet (must have burst). 
   
  Why would anyone choose an unproto path of RELAY,WIDE3-3 for this? It is just melting the network. 
   
  I can hardly believe my eyes....surely I am mistaken?
