- Aug 14, 2014Ran a prediction for the next 48 hours in my software. Looks like it is heading north and back across the international dateline (which is a problem for may software to follow).Here is the track as an overlay on aprs.fi aprs.fi/#!kml=...Jerry Gable

Wow, it's been a long dry spell... no M0XER payloads to watch for a
long time, but M0XER-4 has finally moved back into range of VE6NH up
The projected trajectories for the payload after it left Norway were
for it to do a few loops around the Arctic, and hopefully loop back
down around Yellowknife. However it looks like the payload got a
little dizzy, and ended up heading into the Bering Sea before heading
back north along the coast and into Alaska.
Predictions show the payload heading back into the Arctic Ocean, and
touring the North Pole again. If it were a little further east, it
might have a chance of catching the flow across the Territories. Where
it's at though, it looks to be headed far north.
Mark, what's your HYSPLIT info tell you?
M0XER-3 needs to pop up some day soon... it's been MIA for almost 5 days.
My M0XER-6 long range prediction shows it making landfall over the
The ongoing saga continues!
