[09:38] <jcoxon> morning all
[09:39] Action: jcoxon is in the library for the whole day
[09:45] <rjharrison_> Morning jc
[09:45] <rjharrison_> Left you a zeusbot message (first one)
[09:46] <jcoxon> strange, it didn't come through
[09:46] <rjharrison_> Congratulations on your first QSL it is a bit scary the first few times most of the hams are real easy to talk to
[09:47] <rjharrison_> I still mess it up good and proper every now and then
[09:47] <jcoxon> i was more amazed that I got one considering I'm on 70cm on 1W
[09:47] <rjharrison_> Yep
[09:47] <rjharrison_> Good call
[09:47] <jcoxon> he was very nearby :-p
[09:47] <rjharrison_> 1 watt should be good enough for a good few miles
[09:48] <rjharrison_> Sparkfun order has just arrived from last week whils i was crafting my next
[09:48] <jcoxon> being in london doesn't help, and also having taller buildings - my antenna is actually inside attached to my window
[09:48] <jcoxon> hehe, excellent
[09:49] <jcoxon> rocketboy has got back to me about how to change the shift for my rtty
[09:49] <jcoxon> so will fix that soon
[09:50] <rjharrison_> Excellent There is going to be a queue at the launch site
[09:50] <rjharrison_> I guess either of us can launch at the same time as cusf as they're on 434.650
[09:51] <jcoxon> i doubt i'll launch till january
[09:52] <rjharrison_> In reality that's proably true for me I have one w/e free on the 13/14 dec

[09:53] <rjharrison_> Alott of preying to the gods of weather
[09:53] <jcoxon> fair enough
[09:53] <jcoxon> hehe
[09:54] <jcoxon> waiting for a cusf launch as i'm keen to track from home
[09:54] <jcoxon> really want to get a whole track
[09:55] <rjharrison_> Hey you want an icarus launch for that. My track wasn't bad last time
[09:55] Tygrys^ (i=tygrys@moo.pl) got netsplit.
[09:55] <rjharrison_> Going to reception to get my swag bag from sparkfun
[09:55] Tygrys^ (i=tygrys@moo.pl) returned to #highaltitude.
[09:56] <jcoxon> yeah but you were trcking closely, i'm quite far away from the balloon
[09:56] <jcoxon> would be interesting to compare them
[09:58] <rjharrison_> Right i had better not open the swag bag or there will be another hour of no work
[09:58] <jcoxon> haha
[09:58] <jcoxon> what did you order?
[10:00] <rjharrison_> Oh some caps, occilators, power cable for the logomatic #
[10:01] <rjharrison_> Nothing to get too excited over the occilators are 4 8 an 16 MHz and the caps are to connect them to the AVR chip
[10:01] <rjharrison_> Perhaps an hour is an exageration
[10:03] <jcoxon> i was thinking that
