Re: VA5BNC-15 has taken off again from GA

More like in a swamp in SC :-)  My prediction shows it has likely landed about 2 km NW of the last APRS position at 33.3816 / -80.9417  in a clearing near Cooper Swamp just south of Orangeburg, SC.

If it lands in the clearing you have a chance of taking off again tomorrow morning.

I don't think there is a big leak...just normal every day loss which is possibly higher with the 2017 batch of balloons....either that or there was some leakage out of the balloon's filling port during high peak pressure. You now have a hot air solar balloon instead of a superpressure balloon.

Quarantine will likely be 14 days at the top of a tree or Atlantic
ocean.  ;-)
