[09:27] <defy> jcoxon those radio modules that the MarkII are using look pretty nifty

[10:10] <defy> yeah
[10:12] <jcoxon> http://www.rfsolutions.co.uk/acatalog/High_Power_RF_Modem.html
[10:14] <jcoxon> hmmm very interesting
[10:14] <jcoxon> expensive but potentially good

[16:47] <jcoxon> back
[16:48] <jcoxon> just managed to wire up the phone to the gumstix with out the cable
[16:48] <jcoxon> just on ttl level - no need for rs232
[16:48] <jcoxon> :-D
[16:52] <mark_fiirestone> cool! I'm three hours away from winning this embedded computer... and the guy at project soar is donating an old nokia phone
[16:52] <mark_fiirestone> so we are tooling right along.
[16:53] <mark_fiirestone> been talking to ofcom as well, it is ok to have a beacon after it lands, as long as you have a full license... which I don't
[16:56] <jcoxon> a beacon
[16:56] <jcoxon> cool
[16:56] <jcoxon> how did you get in touch?
[16:57] <jcoxon> i don't see how a beacon is different to communicating on the ground
[16:57] <jcoxon> i mean in the air
[16:58] <jcoxon> wow with out the cable gnokii works far better
[16:58] <jcoxon> obviously the max232 was screwing things up
[17:08] <jcoxon> bbl
[17:16] <mark_fiirestone> Just an email conversation. Part of it is on the website.
[17:17] <mark_fiirestone> I don't see how they are different (ground .vs. air) but ... the rules seem to be stupid
[17:23] <mark_fiirestone> that link looks good but too much money... have to look on ebay
