I didn't comment on there being two balloons up at the same time. If they were both beaconing at a 10 second-rate for the path of WIDE1-1,WIDE2-1, the air time would be doubled… effectively a 1.5 second beacon rate at times. Hopefully the operator heeds the advice he is getting now, and tames both the path and beacon rate before his hopefully more successful future flights.
