"Vaisala Inc. manufactures the devices under an NCAR license. Each season, hurricanes and cyclones devour more than a thousand dropsondes, which cost $700 to $800 apiece, says Holger. And it’s a one-way trip.
Unlike balloon-borne “driftsonde” instrument packages, which have a return-to-sender label to use if found on land, dropsondes are used for open-ocean work, and sink after service.
But NOAA has no regrets about losing them (more than 30,000 GPS-aided models have been expended since full adoption in 2005), since those models have played a starring role in raising forecast-track accuracy."

Our mat blew out of the boat somewhere on our way home from Sherman Cove this afternoon. We left the front gate of the base and up to Gulf Beach Hwy and down to Bauer Rd. If you happened to pick it up, please contact me. I will compensate you for it. My number is 850-496-036eight. Thank you!
I saw where a kite-surfing kite washed up on Pensacola beach and now the Coast Guard is looking for possibly someone in the water. I figure with last night’s storms that it could have blown to sea from shore. If you know of anyone missing one then that might save authorities a bunch of time...
