K4WCU-11 is a balloon launched by the Physics Department at Western
Carolina University in Cullowhee, North Carolina.

An as-yet undetermined inflation error resulted in underinflation of the
balloon, and slower than expected ascent.  As of this moment, it is at
approximately 67,000 feet near Keysville, still climbing, and heading 88
degrees at 63 MPH.  The current track passes over Petersburg.

The balloon may burst over the ocean, or over eastern Virginia. Should it
wind up on land, help with recovery from APRS-equipped hams in the area
would be greatly appreciated.

The equipment package(s) are marked with contact information.

400 9442.
