[22:12] <jcoxon> haha i have returned
[22:15] <gerard_mp> hi jcoxon
[22:17] <jcoxon> hey gerard_mp
[22:17] <jcoxon> the channel has been pretty quiet recently
[22:17] <gerard_mp> how are u?
[22:17] <gerard_mp> yes, u're right
[22:17] <jcoxon> i'm good thanks
[22:18] <gerard_mp> we've made low temp tests today (1/2 of them)
[22:18] <gerard_mp> http://flickr.com/photos/meteotek08/
[22:18] <gerard_mp> dry ice is very useful
[22:18] <jcoxon> yeah it is
[22:18] <jcoxon> looks good
[22:19] <jcoxon> you guys are making really good progress
[22:19] <jcoxon> so the launch is coming up?
[22:19] <gerard_mp> yes, I hope 3 weeks for the first flight
[22:20] <jcoxon> brilliant
[22:20] <gerard_mp> it'll be a controlled flight (low altitude)
[22:20] <jcoxon> fair enough
[22:20] <gerard_mp> then we'll prepare the second flight
[22:20] <gerard_mp> that will be a normal flight
[22:20] <jcoxon> cool cool
[22:21] <gerard_mp> tomorrow we'll test radio+gps+camera+cutoff at -60deg
[22:21] <jcoxon> any form of online tracking we might be able to monitr?
[22:21] <jcoxon> monitor*
[22:21] <gerard_mp> hmm I don't think so, we don't have any station connected to internet
[22:22] <gerard_mp> however for the second flight we could prepare it
[22:22] <jcoxon> :-)
[22:22] <jcoxon> did you see the spirit of knoxville flights?
[22:22] <jcoxon> they had online tracking and we really popular
[22:22] <gerard_mp> yes
[22:22] <jcoxon> means other people can feel like they are involved
[22:22] <jcoxon> like me!
[22:23] <gerard_mp> yes :)
[22:23] <gerard_mp> which project are you involed in right now?
[22:23] <jcoxon> ummmm well i'm working on a payload to take high res photos, HAPS
[22:23] <jcoxon> based on the prototype gumstix goliath system
[22:24] <gerard_mp> do u have any website?
[22:24] <jcoxon> and also i'm involved with Atlas (our high altitude record attempt)
[22:24] <jcoxon> www.pegasushabproject.org.uk
[22:25] <gerard_mp> do u use igniters for cutdown?
[22:25] <jcoxon> yup
[22:26] <gerard_mp> today I've received NiCr wire, tomorrow we'll test it
[22:26] <jcoxon> oh cool
[22:27] <gerard_mp> we took wire from a stove, but it takes 10s to get hot
[22:27] <jcoxon> so you're going for Nichrome wire to burn through the cord?
[22:27] <gerard_mp> yes
[22:27] <jcoxon> cool
[22:27] <gerard_mp> it is a 4mm cord... do u think it will be too much?
[22:27] <jcoxon> thats the traditional way
[22:28] <jcoxon> i'm not sure i've never really experiemented
[22:28] <gerard_mp> ok
[22:28] <jcoxon> check out the balloon people in the USA
[22:28] <jcoxon> thats the method used there
[22:29] <gerard_mp> which one, haarp or ensure?
[22:29] <jcoxon> oh there are others
[22:29] <jcoxon> i'll find a link
[22:29] <gerard_mp> thanks ;)
[22:35] <gerard_mp> ah, atmega8 resisted temps of -60deg for 1h
[22:35] <jcoxon> http://www.kd7lmo.net/cutdown.html
[22:35] <gerard_mp> yes, I saw that website :)
[22:36] <gerard_mp> thanks anyway
[22:36] <gerard_mp> they give the schematic and more things
[22:36] <gerard_mp> they also use the same radiomodem (maxon sd125)
[22:36] <jcoxon> its a great site
[22:36] <gerard_mp> yes
[22:37] <jcoxon> got distracted looking at their glider (NSRV)
[22:39] <gerard_mp> Tygrys also used a cutdown like this one but he never answers any mail or chat message
[22:42] <gerard_mp> well, I'll go to bed, tomorrow more tests are waiting for us :)
[22:42] <gerard_mp> have a nice day
