Great News! both our balloons had reported
K9YO woke at 08:20 UTC at Grid JM29TK between Palma Spain and Cagliari Italy. Pico Balloon K9YO is flying at an altitude of 12,960 meters, 42,509 feet. Our “Best Guess” shows K9YO heading north towards Norway in 84 hours. Of course, weather and Jetstreams do change and we will update this information tomorrow. K9YO and AA6DY tracking information can be found on our Locate and Track page.
Pico Balloon AA6DY has been running silent since November 8th and finally received a report from station KFS from the San Francisco, California area, 4462 miles away from our balloon. KFS is a Maritime Receiving Station.
Pico Balloon AA6DY woke November 11th at 02:12 UTC at Grid RK51, Northeast of the Marshall Islands. AA6DY is flying at an altitude of 14,300 meters, 46,904 feet. Our “Best Guess” is that AA6DY will be traveling east, Northwest of Kiribati, in the Country of Oceania.
Our Locate and Track page shows our “Best Guess” maps for both our balloons.
