Hello Bob
One question
The ballon transmit like this 

With the new n-N paradigm for ballon or aicraft, never use anything other than Wide n-N.
( N=2 OK ).

Is it necessary to put W1-1 before ?

Thanks for your lights.

I just noticed he dropped from over 9000’ to ZERO near the shore line and now it is back up to 3000’ and rising.  I wonder if he bailed out at his last chance to stay dry.  Then let the balloon go since what else could you do with it.

The balloon is IN FLIGHT and just crossed the Canada Shoreline at around 11 AM EDT.  APRS is tracking it though the launchers have not yet updated their web page!
