END of drill.

We found launch team and they are in contact with FAA.

Theis reminds me to put on a priority list:

1)      Come up with a new Balloon symbol to differentiate BIG balloons
from small ones

2)      Come up with similar BIG and SMALL drone symbls…

Bob (out the door rightr now though)

FAA operations center has called me and wants immediate info on a balloon
over Syracuse.

Call is KD2HEQ-11

Donno how they got my number… I’m not involved.

If you have info on this balloon, EMAIL me asap and I will put you in
contact with them.

Im only here till 1340 EDT.

I do not know that they have any specific concerns (They might think it is
a BIG balloon that has not filed any NOTICE)

But I said it is probably a Ham balloon with mass less than the minimum 2
LBs which is  not required to file a NOTICE.

They are apparently watching it on APRS.FI because that is where  they are
seeing it.
