Couldn't find the hand off audio from South to North, but he did get the handshake from the KPBI tower, and no comms after that.
radar contact lost, but alive and well.

The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating an emergency landing on a Palm Beach County road Tuesday night.

The FAA says the pilot of a single-engine Rans S-19 Venterra reported engine issues near Loxahatchee around 11:30 p.m.  The plane made the precautionary landing on State Road 80, west of Lion Country Safari and the Arden community.

Palm Beach County Fire Rescue was dispatched the road, also referred to as U.S. Highway 441,, around the time the pilot reported the issues.

The plane landed on the westbound lanes but moved safely to the righthand shoulder, according to fire officials.
