[aprssig] Need help in Upper East TN to find UX-6

The University of Tennessee Amateur Radio Club launched a balloon yesterday at
about 6:15 pm. See http://balloon.utarc.org/ux-6.uhtml for original details.

The onboard computer locked up and stopped transmitting data about 30 minutes
into  it's flight.  Projections say that the balloon could have landed in an 
area from Mountain City, TN, northeast of Tri-Cities, to Extreme Upper 
Northwest NC, and into VA in the forest area.

If you hear packet on 145.600, or a quick keyup beacon on 433.990, then 
please contact us.  We believe the balloon to be in this area.

If people in these areas could help us out by giving a listen, it would be
appreciated.
