Am watching the flight of the U Alabama Balloon from Huntsville to N. GA. (UAH-1) It just landed in the woods and is still hitting the local digi.  You can see exactly where it is.

There is not a chase vehicle in sight.  But there are at least 3 local APRS mobiles within 10 miles and everyone of them is a deaf, dumb and blind APRS tracker.

THey didnt see the balloon, they are not beaconing their frequency, and they cannot be contacted.

Ain't deaf-dumb-and blind APRS just great. :-(
