Because the balloon traveled in the jet stream at speeds of over 100
MPH and the chase team is stuck on the ground following roads.

Callsigns?  All I see (via aprs.fi) are weather stations,
infrastructure nodes, and a couple of UI-View mobiles.  One of them is
a frequent chase volunteer, who happens to be at the landing site, and
the other is traveling on the interstate.
