Just launched a 10/20 and 6m (In this order) WSPR balloon this morning @ 8:30am EST.
6m a bit unstable.
Have to leave for a few hours and have no time to setup the 10 and 6m spreadsheet for data.
However,20m is working so far but far and few.

U3S-16 is thought to have went down after several issues regarding data.
Very little data was received to to unknown issue(s).
Most can not be determines as valid.
However,may be on the ground or in a tree in FN12PM.

U3S-16 has been transmitting yet in a tree (or somewhere) in FN13PM for 2 days yet.
It could still be heard and appears only between 15:00 and 18:00.Most likely due to solar cell orientation.
Storms went through the area last night and could be destroyed...but who really knows unless it is heard from again.
Could have been moved around to benefit the solar cells or have negative effects.
