yeah, sorry you drove all the way here for nothing. apparently the lost rocket list was mistaken for the found rocket list. many rockets are still lost. and now a nosecone and ebay are six feet under...

I was mislead! The rocket is still LOST!
:mad:

I don't think you were misled. Someone was trying to do you a favor and a mistake was made. Requesting a picture may help, especially when a long trip is involved.

Off topic, but what kind of tracker doesn't last a day?? I have had the com spec trackers blip out for almost a week on a new battery. I tested the abilities of the thing so I had an idea of how long I would be able to "search" if ever lost.

Good luck with the find. I'm sure it will show up.

Might have been an old battery? Did it die after the button was pushed? I be burned when I didn't do a range test with an installation before flight so that's an awful feeling when there is no signal on the downside and the rocket is not seen. Kurt
