West North Carolina HAMS-We Need Assistance!

Recommended Posts

Geocachers/Fellow Hams! I am in need of assistance from any Western North Carolina HAMS and Geocachers!


The UTARC (University of Tennessee Amateur Radio Club) is looking for a balloon that went down south east of Hickory,NC yesterday! The last coords were: Lat: 35.6346 Lon: -80.9998 which places it Catawba County, NC north of Sherrill's Ford Road across some railroad tracks. The altitude shows 838 feet, but this may not be accurate.


Any HAMS in the area can tune to APRS 144.390 and they may be able to pick the signal up, as it is getting weaker by the hour.


Any information, please contact me at TNParamedic18325@aol.com. If you can recover the payload, UTARC will pay shipping charges to get it back.


Thanks for you help and 73!
