      The balloon is bobbing between 1400 and 2000 meters tonight after an evening launch from Huntsville AL on a 36" party balloon. Possible flight paths take it over Kentucky, WVA, Virginia or NC on Sunday with another scenario taking it up to Ohio depending on the height it will achieve.

      If you are able please take a listen on 434.442 MHz USB  THOR 16 digital mode (WB8ELK-6) if you are in these areas and let me know if you hear anything.

      This mode can be decoded by   dl-FLdigi which is a free download.
