    Statistically speaking? Zero.

    I don't know the stats, but I've read of a few aircraft having to do emergency landings due to party buffoons.

    We'll see :D Apparently if the barn is moving at over 500 mph and the bullet is standing still to him is different than the bullet moving at 500 mph and the barn standing still....

    Juan...you will find the arm chair pros in every forum.They have no clue what they are talking about,never did and never will.That is why they talk into a mic for 70 years and never do anything else in the hobby :)

    Please reread both items: the one excerpt by W0EAW, then my reply. And pay attention to what you're reading. Note the italics in my post. Try to keep up here, Jim...

    I been building trackers for balloons for many years.Joined dozens of groups and forums for just about everything and anything I take an interest in.Point is,never fails someone knows more about stuff than people that actually do it.Gets mind boggling after awhile.Us HAB folks have heard everything under the sun in regard to the NEGATIVES of building and launching tracking balloons.Some about the environment,bunches about aircraft dangers and some about interference of 10mw transmitters.Until those that know so much take time to research,build these things,they have only 2 choices...say nothing or ask more questions.Nothing more nothing less.People introduce new exciting things to ham radio which ADVANCE the hobby...we need more people to advance with it and like to share what we do.I personally do it as ordinary ham radio activities bore me to death.SWL since I was 12 yrs old...I can turn the rig on now and hear the exact same conversations...any band,any mode. Becomes robotic after awhile. Give those of us that live outside the bubble do what we do !

    To answer any and all questions about these dangerous balloons and payloads...we can simply do the work and even contact the same Government that granted you a Ham license about the safety of these things.Go directly here,gather all the info you need and ask them what THEY think about aircraft dangers. So much easier to ask your Federal Government rather than us stupid amateurs.They fly much larger payloads and balloons...I think 6 lbs maximum is legal in USA. We are flying stuff @ 6 grams :)

    Beware...there is a lot of thinking involved here !
    More fun than chatting on Forums all day .
