Thanks, I didn't bring up my APRS "Flying Objects" monitor up soon
enough to catch those in flight, so we only have the historical track.
You can readily see the (negative) effects of WIDE1-1,WIDE2-1 or WIDE2-2
paths at altitude. Balloons really don't need a path when the get up in
the air. Certainly the infrastructure hits between the earlier flights
today and these tell the tale.
