Just minutes ago, it has been reported that the 200’ radar blimp tethered
in Northern Maryland has broken loose.
It does NOT have APRS on it, but we need people in MD and PA to look up in
the sky for it and user your APRS to send DF bearing lines so we can track
I have not had time to VERIFY this, but am throwing it out there anyway.
This is what APRS is desiged to do. Just enter y our bearing line in a DF
packet and we can all see the plot on APRS.
