You sure about that? Chrome doesn't seem to think anything is off about it. Do you have some kind of plugin anti-malware? The heuristics engine has probably just gone mad.

seccond atempt
   ?
I believe S-11 means  11 attempts  - right ?   They are listed on the left side of his web page.  S-9 was the best until NORAD shot it down with their ground-to-air laser system (works only on party balloons - but still cost $100 billion).
 
FYI  My Firefox is ok also

Sorry, I didn't saw that, but still thumbs up for repeating it again and again

Wow!
I was thinking of doing something like that, but had no idea about WSPR.
The idea was to either put a cellphone modem or the Iridium modem on the balloon.
But the former probably won't work far from cities and out of the country, so there will be some spotty tracking and then silence.
While the latter is obscenely expensive for a disposable job.

So, this basically rely on the network of tracking stations that can pick up the standard 50 bit packet?
Is there any way to send back more data?

How common are the conditions that allow stunts like hearing a balloon over Europe from New Zealand?
If that can be done more or less all night, then that should be enough for a very compressed picture or something of this scale.

I don't think a cell phone will work at that height. I once made a hot air balloon flight, only a couple of hundred meters in the air over flat land (not even hills). When I tried to phone up people who I was flying over to tell them to look up in the air, it was almost impossible to get a signal from the cellular phone network (GSM).

Chrome works for me also.

When accessing via IE, Norton AV reports

6/15/2016 2:33:30 PM,High,An intrusion attempt by qrp-labs.com was blocked.

Web Attack: Exploit Kit Redirect  4,
"qrp-labs.com (51.255.207.70, 80)",qrp-labs.com/ultimate3/ve3kcl-balloons/ve3kcl-s11.html

I'm not a Web jockey so I don't know if this is a false alarm from Norton, or what.  I have had no problems previously when accessing ve3kcl's website via IE.

IE has some hooks deep into the system, half the features probably get blocked by A/V on the basis that it is an integrated backdoor engine.

I like to link to S9 once in awhile so people will find it.    S-11  is the current flight which can be found on the left side of the screen.  Scroll down to see the flight path of S-9.  It almost made it around the world.
