[13:36] <defy> does anyone have any helium volume vs lift algorithms?
[13:36] <Laurenceb> there stuff on the wiki
[13:37] <Laurenceb> but thats a spreadsheet
[13:38] <defy> cheers, found it

[22:28] <edwardmoore_> hi jcoxon
[22:29] <jcoxon> hey
[22:29] Action: jcoxon successfully stole the radio from the engineering department
[22:29] <icez_> uhoh
[22:30] <edwardmoore_> lol
[22:30] <edwardmoore_> did henry notice/
[22:31] <jcoxon> i asked
[22:31] <jcoxon> he ain't back
[22:32] <jcoxon> now i can test the radio off peg v
[22:32] <jcoxon> and also ground control software
[22:32] <edwardmoore_> sexual
[22:33] <edwardmoore_> and to top it all, peep show series 4 is now on

[23:17] <edwardmoore_> jcoxon, do you know if there's some kind of audio-streaming protocol (voip?) that would be good for a larger network for balloon tracking?
[23:17] <jcoxon> what do you mean?
[23:17] <edwardmoore_> I'm thinking from the POV of other people having Yagis and tracking with them, and streaming the rtty back to us
[23:18] <jcoxon> have you seen what the utarc are doing?
[23:18] <jcoxon> they are using hams to decode it
[23:18] <edwardmoore_> if, say, we deliberatelly let something wonder out to europe
[23:18] <jcoxon> and then send the data back into a central server
[23:19] <edwardmoore_> that's what I'm talking about, eye
[23:20] <edwardmoore_> we have a house in mid/east france which would be a cool base if were to be more adventurous
[23:21] <edwardmoore_> although actually it's a little far south now that i see it on g-earth
[23:22] <jcoxon> it might be easier to decode to text
[23:22] <jcoxon> then send it back
[23:23] <edwardmoore_> that's probably true
[23:23] <edwardmoore_> also having a look at ground control software
[23:24] <edwardmoore_> this is a pretty trivial thing, but google maps has a print view button which cuts out most of the fluff and gives you pretty much just the map[

[23:27] <edwardmoore_> steve hasn't been on for a bit...
[23:27] <jcoxon> i've had a few emails from him
[23:27] <jcoxon> oh google maps - i'll make an embedded page
[23:27] <jcoxon> it'll be even better
[23:27] <edwardmoore_> cool
[23:27] <edwardmoore_> i have radio-witchcraft questions
[23:28] <edwardmoore_> the make guys have got a new vid if you've not seen it
[23:28] <edwardmoore_> i quite want bre's cap
[23:29] <jcoxon> hehe
[23:29] <jcoxon> i'm just setting up morse on peg V
[23:29] <edwardmoore_> do you speak morse?
[23:30] <edwardmoore_> in as far as one can speak a language made of beeps
[23:30] <jcoxon> nope
[23:30] <jcoxon> but cocoamodem does
[23:31] <edwardmoore_> ah cunning
[23:31] <edwardmoore_> good old cocoa modem
[23:31] <jcoxon> rocketboy was saying how he is tempted by a mac
[23:31] <jcoxon> for cocoamodem and groundcontrol :-p
[23:31] <edwardmoore_> good!
[23:32] <edwardmoore_> dad is making the switch too
[23:32] <edwardmoore_> well, he says 'i'll run both side by side'
[23:32] <edwardmoore_> but it's the first step :)
[23:35] <jcoxon> yay
[23:35] <jcoxon> morse code is coming through
[23:36] <jcoxon> however
[23:36] <edwardmoore_> how do you input wav files into ccmdm?
[23:36] <jcoxon> cause i don't have an audio input it doesn't work
[23:36] <jcoxon> (i'm getting a usb audio input thingy from ebay)
[23:36] <jcoxon> ummm
[23:36] <edwardmoore_> cool, that'll be a boon
[23:36] <jcoxon> go to window - config and then choose the sound card
[23:37] <edwardmoore_> oh gotcha
[23:37] <edwardmoore_> ty
[23:37] <edwardmoore_> and is there an easy way to covert ogg to wav?
[23:37] <edwardmoore_> i feel so noob. what can ya do

[23:43] <edwardmoore_> hi steve
[23:43] <edwardmoore_> the lugs came through yesterday (had to chase the p-office!) so thanks very much for them
[23:44] <rocketboy> hi ed - just finished my PIC RC servo driver
[23:44] <rocketboy> no probs (I was wondering f you got them)
[23:44] <rocketboy> f = if
[23:45] <rocketboy> I like that sort - very easy to use
[23:45] <edwardmoore_> how much do i owe you for them?
[23:45] <rocketboy> nothing
[23:46] <rocketboy> it was about the same as the meal U brought me
[23:46] <rocketboy> brought = bought
[23:46] <edwardmoore_> wow, that's really kind of you. owe you a drink at the very least anyway
[23:47] <edwardmoore_> i had a radio question but i can't remember what it was...
[23:48] <jcoxon> woohoo - peg V now cycles through morse code then rs232 (rtty)
[23:48] <jcoxon> and on that note i'm off to bed
[23:48] <jcoxon> night all
[23:48] <edwardmoore_> oh yeah- is there a simple way to quantitatively measure signal strength or s-n-r?
[23:48] <edwardmoore_> cya james
