[21:19] <phatmonkey> :(
[21:20] <malgar> gulp
[21:21] <malgar> uhm you have problems with ham radio laws, and i have problems with air traffic control laws
[21:31] <phatmonkey> maybe I should send up a /small/ package with some unreliable form of communication
[21:31] <phatmonkey> just to /do/ it
[21:31] <phatmonkey> we could experiment with long range 802.11b, plus gsm
[21:46] <jcoxon> hey phatmonkey
[21:46] <phatmonkey> hey
[21:46] <jcoxon> tis a tough one
[21:46] <jcoxon> pegasus III will stick to GSM
[21:46] <jcoxon> (gumstix have offered me a new gumstix for free :-D )
[21:48] <jcoxon> how could be boost 802.11b?
[21:48] <malgar> ahhh another gumstix this is a good news
[21:50] <phatmonkey> amplification and direction antennas
[21:50] <phatmonkey> that's nice of gumstix
[21:51] <phatmonkey> 802.11b has been transmitted over 50+ miles I believe on the ground
[21:51] <phatmonkey> so 802.11g in the air should be a tad easier
[21:51] <phatmonkey> but that;s very very directional, which wouldn't work very well with a balloon
[21:51] <phatmonkey> we're only talking 10 - 15 miles I suppose
[21:53] <jcoxon> interesting\
[21:53] <jcoxon> right have to dash
[21:53] <jcoxon> but will think about it
[22:02] <phatmonkey> okay

[23:10] <Professor> whooot! http://www.x-division.com/haarp/
[23:10] <Professor> got my tracking stuff working (mostly)
[23:11] <icez> that's in 8 days?
[23:12] <Professor> what's in 8 days?
[23:12] <icez> Report received 8 days 5 hours 32 minutes 39 seconds ago
[23:12] <icez> :/
[23:12] <Professor> oh
[23:12] <Professor> that's something I haven't worked on yet
[23:12] <Professor> the position data is valid, but the balloon text is not
[23:12] <Professor> I gotta script everything sanely so I can populate that stuff as well.
[23:12] <icez> what kind of balloon is that?
[23:12] <Professor> the "balloon" is my car and I'm currently parked at work
[23:13] <Professor> it will be a kaymont
[23:13] <Professor> I picked up a kaymont KCI 1500 a couple weeks ago
[23:15] <Professor> anyway, I'm done coding for today I think. just sharing.
