         It is.  It's registered to a Bellanca Viking, but the 
owner's name doesn't show up in a search at QRZ.com.  Well, that's 
going by <http://home.att.net/~bsviking/dec06.html> -- and the FAA 
database shows the same name, so I guess it's still a puzzle, as the 
packets from N4243B do no contain a valid amateur radio callsign.

         BTW, the station identifying as N4243B today was only moving 
at about 55-60 MPH.  A Viking should make 150 or more.
