SOLO SPIRIT BALLOON REPORT



Hello Farrell, and others 
      Just got a report at 23:00 utc  (8:30am S.Aust) that Solo-Spirit
is just west of Coober Pedy (Lat 29 deg. Lon 134 45 deg) in the far
north of S. Aust. at a height of 22,000 ft. He has come down from 29,000
ft to get more wind, not sure of the speed. Air traffic control in
Melbourne said that he has some up market nav. equipment on board and
that he is in contact with the airports in his area at the time. From
this I gather that he is using aircraft Fqs...Pity he didn't have ham
gear on board, it would have been great fun. This is a bit of topic for
the amsat-BB but I think of interest. 
                          73 de Tony....VK5ZAI.
