Our HAB has landed just across the MA border in RI! The recovery team is close and can hear the APRS packet transmitter bursting packets. Since the HAB is on the ground, no local digipeaters are picking it up. The recovery team has APRS gear and directional antennas and they are switching to “Fox Hunt” mode. More to follow as the story develops…June 3, 2017 at 3:15 pm #18452
Last ping I saw on APRS.fi

Congratulations. Watched every minute of it. Very interesting, neat even! Would be interesting to know how many ground miles it might have covered during it’s journey, also the chase crew(s). And, how high it might have been if one of you spotted it on the way Dow. Nice job N1FD!

Congrats on the great flight. It was exciting even back here in Nashua watching the progress on APRS.fi. Looks like it is stuck in some trees off of Sumner Brown Rd. Last position i had was 42°1.04′ N 71°24.37′ W
Good luck on the retrieval.
