The launch site of Idar-Oberstein started a volley of DFM06s and DFM09s. One of them made to the vicinity of Stuttgart.
Even after landing, the a weather probe radio network could still receive it — which is an indicator that the probe landed high up.
The position suggested that the probe had landed in a high voltage line. A nearby pylon looked massive and high on google maps.
On 2018-11-29, Claus checked out the landing site on its way home but it was too dark to make visual contact. The probe had stopped transmitting by then, so other means of localization where not possible. The next morning, he returned on his way to work and found the parachute. After Claus had explained to me where to look for the parachute, I moved in on Saturday. I quickly located the probe high up in the cables. Well, what goes up, will come down — now it is a matter of time and weather until the probe will make its final plunge.
