    Seems to have stopped climb around 110000 ft, or telemetry has stopped?
    110000 was planned cruising altitude.

    • 33Kms. Not bad eh. Makes me wonder if someone under with a receiver would get it if they put the antenna sidways. Its not like its a long distance, its just up instead of sideways

        Got a yagi handy?

        • I have contemplated it. I can get northern ground info from 15odd KMs away. But not solid, usually from 200ft. A yagi would fix that quicksmart.

          But as it stands I was worried my antenna pole would blow over last night. We had 70K winds in the burbs (140 up the hill) and not really easy to drop down to see if I can get the balloon back online for a while

              Also had it for a short time. (8 Minutes) Thought that antenna that is on 45 decree lean after the wind might picked it up bit more

                    • It's coming around nicely. Now it's a matter of who gets to see it, as long as the crap weather gives us some sky.

                      • I just realised the YouTube video I posted was prison break and not NASA's close up launch video. Mybad. Clearly had wrong link in cache.

                        But there is a nice close video From the lunch

                        • Well we've missed it this time around. The point on the Nullschool map is location at 0915hrs Tue NZDT. So possibly it may keep on circling and move off. We can only hope.

                          • What has happened to the unknown callsign / MLAT on the viewers ?

                              • Hi,
                                Maybe its just me, but the fr24 premium feed on 3 separate devices has stopped displaying Mlat planes. It was working 100% not too long ago.
                                I'm hearing planes flying overhead that are not displayed, and can see them in the list on virtual radar ( off NZPP4 ). All full ADSB planes are displaying ok.
                                Thanks, Graham.
