[23:19] <jcoxon> evening all
[23:19] <rocketboy> Hy jcoxon
[23:20] <jcoxon> hey rocketboy
[23:20] <jcoxon> i'm keen for some drop tests later this week
[23:21] <rocketboy> me too
[23:21] <rocketboy> monday is out but I think I can make the end of the week
[23:21] <jcoxon> okay
[23:21] <jcoxon> thursday looked promising
[23:21] <rocketboy> ah OK - sounds ok
[23:24] <rocketboy> I'll need to check my work calendar tomorrow - but it should be ok
[23:26] <jcoxon> bbc are saying sunny with 6mph winds
[23:27] <rocketboy> spot on - sounds like the site is sorted?
[23:28] <jcoxon> yeah i'll speak to the groundsman tomorrow
[23:28] <jcoxon> shouldn't be a problem
[23:29] <rocketboy> I have a 500g balloon to try
[23:29] <jcoxon> okay
[23:29] <jcoxon> i've got a 200g still
[23:29] <jcoxon> though its probably worse then the last one
[23:29] <jcoxon> and henry has a 350 still
[23:29] <jcoxon> i'm pretty much done setting up the payload
[23:30] <jcoxon> for the servo snooper do you need rx, tx and gnd lines?
[23:30] <rocketboy> don't mind either way - I have pleanty of helium
[23:30] <rocketboy> just Usart rx and power + gnd (5V - from the servo)
[23:31] <jcoxon> basically its now got 2 battery packs
[23:31] <rocketboy> actually i need to make a level shifter down to 3.3V logic for input into the Gumstix?
[23:31] <jcoxon> yeah
[23:31] <jcoxon> i'm not using my rs232 board
[23:32] <jcoxon> just ttl
[23:32] <rocketboy> no probs - I'll get on that tomorrow night.
[23:32] <rocketboy> thats what i was expecting
[23:32] <jcoxon> so from the servo do you tap into the control line?
[23:33] <jcoxon> would it be helpful if i did that now and had some wires ready
[23:33] <rocketboy> yep - I have some specual leads made up
[23:34] <jcoxon> oka
[23:34] <jcoxon> y
[23:34] <rocketboy> I have already made a pir of leads - they have a 3 pin RC plug on one end and a 3 pin RC socket on the other
[23:34] <rocketboy> and a tap off to the servo-snoop
[23:35] <jcoxon> cool
[23:43] Action: jcoxon has made a web browser for mac os x this afternoon
[23:46] <rocketboy> night all
