Balloon chase Sunday morning, Southern PA:

Should hear it over all Midatantic states!

Our balloon will be launched near Chambersburg, PA  9 AM? and will fly
across southern PA landing somehwehre near Newark, DE.

It will fly faster than the launch team, so we hope other hams will get to
the recovery site before we do and catch it on the way down.

But when you find it, leave it be, so our students can recvover it.

Balloon is W3ADO-11 and will switch to CRASH symbol when near the ground
and using WIDE1-1 path.    Will use no path at higher altitudes.

Will be on 144.39
