September 25th, 2022, 23rd Day, Day 1 of Our Second Time Around

This one I’ll have to think about. This is now our 1st day of our second lap. AA6DY has left the Unitied States and woke at Grid FM87TQ at 12:02 UTC, 7:02 am CDT. Thanks to a chart provided by Michael Seedman, AA6DY, we find our waking altitude at 13,900 meters or 45,592 feet. 43 dBm Power in the 1st packet and 50 dBm Power in the 2nd packet.

One of the things we were looking at was the frequency of spotters and distance received to our balloon. We were thinking, possibly one of our antennas had loosened. Things seem to have worked out with multiple spotters comming in on the 2’s, with one from Northern California, 8900 Km away or 5500 miles. We’d like to thank Robert from Half Moon Bay California for keeping track of us.

For those that have been following our Hurricanes and Cyclones, we have a busy season in our area. We had survived Hurricane Dannielle during our first journey around and It looks like we’ll be travelling north and east of Gaston as seen in the next two images.

Our Links to Locate and Track tab have been updated, with today’s fight information.

  1. Congratulations to the NIBBB team on our first global circumnavigation!!
    We’re off to a quick start on our second lap around the world. It’s great to see what team effort can do to make for a successful flight. I’m looking forward to tracking our next lap as we float between several hurricanes. For the first time we can compare flight path from our for first trip to the second lap.
