[01:22] <SpeedEvil> hmm
[01:22] <SpeedEvil> I should get you all to vote up my 'above the standard atmosphere' query
[01:22] <Laurenceb> ?
[01:22] <SpeedEvil> (t'll only give answers up to 60km?
[01:22] <SpeedEvil> or is it 30km
[01:23] <SpeedEvil> http://www65.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=atmosphere+20km
[01:23] <Laurenceb> up to 86
[01:23] <SpeedEvil> now try 200
[01:23] <Laurenceb> us standard atmosphere 1976
[01:24] <Laurenceb> above 86 the molar mass starts to change
[01:24] <SpeedEvil> Also - I haven't found a nice way of using that inffo
[01:24] <SpeedEvil> for example
[01:25] Nick change: KingJ -> kingj
[01:25] <SpeedEvil> atmosphere 20km - sure - it gives a page of info.
[01:25] <SpeedEvil> So what.
[01:25] <SpeedEvil> How do I do:
[01:25] <SpeedEvil> Density of atmosphere at 20Km * 0.1*1m^2*(10m/s)^2
[01:26] <Laurenceb> (air density at 9Km)*0.8
[01:27] <SpeedEvil> which is comedically wrong
[01:29] <Laurenceb> lol
[01:31] <SpeedEvil> Google at least makes a stab at keeping the units consistent

[17:03] <edmoore_> oh actually
[17:03] <edmoore_> i had a thought
[17:03] <edmoore_> a really, really, really useful datapoint for that kind of page would be:
[17:04] <edmoore_> distance and range from launch site
[17:04] <edmoore_> sorry, range and bearing from launch site
[17:04] <edmoore_> much easier for brain to deal with than lats and longs

[17:31] <rjharrison_work> Does it auto update evey 10 secs?
[17:31] <rjharrison_work> I'm running a simulation launch on it at the moment
[17:31] <DanielRichman> Was about to ask if it was fake data ;)
[17:32] <rjharrison_work> hehe. My last launch
[17:32] <rjharrison_work> From last friday
[17:32] <KingJ> The page does reload, but I don't see any change in data
[17:32] <rjharrison_work> hull you should on the top payload
[17:33] <rjharrison_work> ICARUS II is a static test
[17:33] <rjharrison_work> hull = humm
[17:33] <DanielRichman> rjharrison_work, where do you store the data that's uploaded?
[17:33] <rjharrison_work> in a mysql table
[17:34] <KingJ> I'm looking at ICARUS 1, Telemetry is fixed at 2009-06-03 17:33:03, Position at51.856728,0.233106
[17:34] <rjharrison_work> DanielRichman: Soon there will be automatic realtime graphing http://www.robertharrison.org/listen/time.png

[17:34] <rjharrison_work> and http://www.robertharrison.org/listen/altitude.png
[17:34] <DanielRichman> nice
[17:34] <rjharrison_work> I implemented 8bitCRC into the listener last night too
[17:35] <KingJ> If I load it up in a proper desktop browser, it the data does change as it should
[17:35] <DanielRichman> Maybe it's being cached?
[17:35] <rjharrison_work> KingJ: Cool
[17:35] <rjharrison_work> Humm good point
[17:35] <KingJ> Quite possibly, i'll try it in Opera Mini instead of just the standard browser
[17:35] <rjharrison_work> I should set he no cache stuff
[17:35] <DanielRichman> rjharrison_work, I use this:
[17:35] <DanielRichman> Header('Cache-Control: must-revalidate, post-check=0, pre-check=0');
[17:36] <DanielRichman> and
[17:36] <DanielRichman> Header('Expires: 0');
[17:36] <KingJ> It could be the mobile operator's proxy
[17:36] <DanielRichman> so do you store the data in a mysql database or flat file server side?
[17:36] <DanielRichman> rjharrison_work, you could append a random value to the url
[17:37] <rjharrison_work> KingJ: Can you try again with that
[17:37] <rjharrison_work> I have made a minor fix

[17:42] <DanielRichman> KingJ, might be beacuse (just noticed) the META tags arn't inside <head>
[17:42] <KingJ> Ah
[17:42] <DanielRichman> I think they should be, not 100% sure
[17:42] <KingJ> Yes, they should

[17:47] <DanielRichman> sorry

[19:51] <DanielRichman> AGAIN!
[19:52] <sbasuita> DanielRichman, too much awesome
[19:52] <natrium42> DanielRichman, 64 bit ubuntu?
[19:52] <DanielRichman> natrium42, yes
[19:52] <natrium42> you need to uninstall nonfree flash using apt
[19:52] <natrium42> and grab the 64 bit apha from adobe's site
[19:52] <DanielRichman> Hmm
[19:52] <natrium42> at put it into plugins folder manually
[19:53] <DanielRichman> Can I get it from medibuntu?
[19:53] <DanielRichman> that would be preferable.
[19:53] Action: DanielRichman checks
[19:53] <DanielRichman> or perhaps backports.
[19:53] <natrium42> don't think so
[19:53] <sbasuita> never had any flash problems
[19:53] <sbasuita> on ubuntu
[19:54] <sbasuita> amd64
[19:54] <natrium42> nspluginwrapper crashes for some reason with 32 bit flash that you get from the repo
[19:54] <natrium42> you need the 64 bit alpha version
[19:54] <DanielRichman> Oh right, I see
[19:54] <sbasuita> really? I just type `sudo aptitude install flashplugin-nonfree' and all is good
[19:54] <natrium42> and uninstall nspluginwrapper and flash nonfree
[19:54] <DanielRichman> Rofl, there's a lot of crap in medibuntu
[19:54] <sbasuita> DanielRichman, medibuntu is win
[19:54] <natrium42> sbasuita, but are you on 64 bit?
[19:54] <sbasuita> natrium42, yes (amd64 <-----)
[19:55] <natrium42> it works for a while, but then you get white or gray rectangles where flash should be
[19:55] <DanielRichman> Oh
[19:55] <DanielRichman> that's not good
[19:55] <DanielRichman> it wants to get rid of i32-libs
[19:55] <natrium42> alpha fixes it
[19:55] <DanielRichman> skype needs those!
[19:56] <natrium42> which package?

[20:27] <jcoxon> sbasuita, DanielRichman impressed by the range of the FT-790r in regards to receiving radio?
[20:27] <jcoxon> from the weekend's launch?
[20:28] <sbasuita> very
[20:28] <sbasuita> although I have nothing to compare it with
[20:28] <sbasuita> ; P
[20:28] <DanielRichman> yeah, it's encouraging
[20:28] <jcoxon> its a nice raio
[20:28] <jcoxon> radio*
[20:30] <sbasuita> Shame about the 70cm limitation....
[20:30] <jcoxon> it does the job
[20:31] <sbasuita> yep
[20:32] <sbasuita> going down to the local club monthly meeting in one week
[20:32] <jcoxon> oh cool
[20:32] <sbasuita> hopefully someone can show me how do pass the practical exam
[20:32] <jcoxon> oh thats the fun bit
[20:32] <sbasuita> what sort of stuff do i have to do?

[20:33] <sbasuita> i think they give a lot of leeway though right?
[20:33] <sbasuita> like one character at a time, repeat it if you need, paper and pen
[20:33] <jcoxon> oh you can't fail i don' t think
[20:33] <DanielRichman> do you still have to learn it? I thought it was removed
[20:33] <sbasuita> DanielRichman, you get a reference sheet
[20:33] <jcoxon> its just to introduce you to it
[20:34] <jcoxon> i got to play on 2m and also on HF
[20:38] <DanielRichman> we missed the course though. Do you reckon that just turning up at the meeting and asking for halp would be acceptable?
[20:39] <jcoxon> you'll probably need to wait for the next course
[20:39] <jcoxon> as while the exam is easy the practical requires a bit of organisation on their part
[20:39] <DanielRichman> sbasuita,
[20:39] <jcoxon> usually the do courses when they have enough people
[20:39] <sbasuita> mmm
[20:39] <sbasuita> thing is they just finished one
[20:39] <sbasuita> so it will be a long time till the next
[20:39] <jcoxon> so perhaps if you can find a few people who might be interested
[20:40] <jcoxon> perhaps school
[20:40] <jcoxon> then they'll put something on for you
[20:40] <sbasuita> how many do you think?
[20:40] <jcoxon> not sure
[20:40] <sbasuita> well, i'm going to turn up on wednesday anyway
[20:40] <jcoxon> would have to ask what - the club i did my course at required 6 people
[20:40] <jcoxon> to make it worthwhile hiring the hall
[20:41] <sbasuita> That's what the guy I emailed said
[20:41] <sbasuita> But he will apparently talk to the other guys and see if they can arrange something
[20:41] <jcoxon> but considering that amateur radio is a dying hobby they are keen to expand
[20:41] <sbasuita> mmm
[20:41] <DanielRichman> dying hobby? bleh
[20:41] <sbasuita> They're not going to turn away another ham in the bracknell area
[20:41] <DanielRichman> jcoxon, What's the official status on encryption over radio? (Just curious, remembered this)
[20:41] <sbasuita> oh yeha
[20:42] <jcoxon> encryption isn't allowed
[20:42] <jcoxon> you can use standard protocols
[20:43] <DanielRichman> oh?
[20:43] <jcoxon> but it must be possible to decode the data
[20:43] <DanielRichman> ah.
[20:43] <DanielRichman> sbasuita, gotta be steneographic then ;)
[20:43] <sbasuita> DanielRichman, nah
[20:43] <sbasuita> DanielRichman, nobody is going to be like "OMG CANT SPY ON THEM MUST FOX THEIR HOUSE AND CALL FBI"
[20:43] <DanielRichman> no, cause it's england
[20:43] <DanielRichman> so they'll call OFCOM
[20:43] <jcoxon> the point of amateur radio though isn't for that
[20:43] <jcoxon> its an open exchange of info
[20:44] <DanielRichman> yeah
[20:44] <DanielRichman> but It means no VPNs over HF ;)
[20:44] <jcoxon> i would try networking over HF anyway
[20:44] <sbasuita> People aren't going to be suspicious if they can't decode some digital
[20:44] <jcoxon> urgh propergation would kill you
[20:44] <sbasuita> There are a million different modes
[20:45] <jcoxon> sbasuita, you'd be suprised...

[20:45] <jcoxon> oh i'm pretty good at recognising a digital mode according to its trace on a waterfall
[20:45] <sbasuita> Hmm...
[20:46] <DanielRichman> hehe
[20:46] <jcoxon> but guys, its not for that sort of thing
[20:46] <jcoxon> use tinternet
[20:46] <DanielRichman> Yeah
[20:46] <jcoxon> its for chatting to people
[20:46] <DanielRichman> indeed
[20:46] <jcoxon> and seeing how far you can transmit etc
[20:46] <jcoxon> hence why i don't really bother :-)
[20:46] <sbasuita> hehe
[20:46] <DanielRichman> Do most people use their radios with a mic and possibly a morsekey rather than a computer?
[20:46] <DanielRichman> generally?
[20:47] <jcoxon> ummm depends
[20:47] <sbasuita> DanielRichman, depends on whether you're talking about the general population or a general subset of a specific portion of the general population
[20:47] <DanielRichman> Thanks for that.
[20:48] <jcoxon> incerasingly people use computers
[20:48] <jcoxon> as its easier
[20:48] <jcoxon> but morse isn't the only mode
[20:48] <jcoxon> psk31 is incredibly popular
[20:48] <jcoxon> tons of it on 40m
[20:48] <sbasuita> that's just FM with two frequencies right?
[20:49] <jcoxon> its usually ssb

[20:51] <jcoxon> amateur radio was where trolling begun
[20:51] <DanielRichman> jcoxon, have you ever witnessed bad things happening over the airwaves?
[20:51] <jcoxon> urgh
[20:51] <sbasuita> the possibilities...
[20:51] <sbasuita> ; P
[20:52] <jcoxon> basically there is no amateur radio in central london i've found
[20:52] <DanielRichman> What does psk31 have over RTTY except for crazy variable char lengths?
[20:52] <jcoxon> due to abuse
[20:52] <SpeedEvil> much better spectral efficiency
[20:52] <jcoxon> DanielRichman, the range is far better

[22:41] <G8KHW> rjharrison:yo
[22:42] <rjharrison> G8KHW
[22:42] <rjharrison> Do you add CR/LF to the end of your string
[22:42] <rjharrison> or just LF
[22:44] <G8KHW> cr lf in that order
[22:45] <rjharrison> hehe
[22:45] <rjharrison> Just spent a few hours wondering wtf was going on
[22:45] <rjharrison> I forgot DOS uses CRLF
[22:45] <rjharrison> fixed now :)
[22:46] <rjharrison> You will need to install the latest version of the client soon
[22:46] <rjharrison> Will take me 20 mins to get it up
[22:46] <rjharrison> Shouldn't crash anymore either
[22:48] <natrium42> G8KHW, got any temp sensors on board?
[22:49] <rjharrison> natrium42: That reminds me I need to upgrade my tables to include temp
[22:49] <G8KHW> nope - just the basics - tracker + camera
[22:49] <natrium42> rjharrison, good idea
[22:50] <natrium42> rjharrison, do you think two fields for temp is good?
[22:50] <natrium42> internal + external
[22:50] <rjharrison> yep I have 3
[22:50] <rjharrison> int ext and cam
[22:50] <rjharrison> but 2 is fine
[22:50] <natrium42> ah
[22:50] <G8KHW> I had some sensors (analoge) in the past but want to swap to using I2C sensors
[22:50] <natrium42> maybe a TEXT field for sensor data then
[22:50] <rjharrison> I couldn't think of any more
[22:50] <natrium42> not sure if there will be a performance impact
[22:51] <rjharrison> I have the idea of custom data stored in a text filed separated 2;4;5;5 like that
[22:51] <natrium42> yep, maybe with field names too
[22:51] <natrium42> that way the javascript can just grab whatever you give to it
[22:51] <natrium42> and show the fields
[22:52] <rjharrison> Yep but you will have to radio tx them which is not good
[22:52] <natrium42> your dl-fldigi could add them in
[22:53] <natrium42> dunno, i want to add a missin settings screen
[22:53] <natrium42> perhaps fields would be configurable there
[22:53] <natrium42> missin = mission
[22:54] edmoore (n=ed@pomegranate.chu.cam.ac.uk) left irc:
[22:56] <natrium42> another thing we need is a 'via' field
[22:56] <natrium42> i.e. the list of stations that received that particular position
[22:57] <natrium42> that way the map will be able to show lines to the stations which received a pos, a la aprs.fi
[22:58] <rjharrison> hehe I like it I can give you that info if you like via php
[22:58] <natrium42> cool, i was wondering whether it would be possible to integrate with your system
[22:59] <rjharrison> remind me do you keep the sequence or counter in your table
[22:59] <rjharrison> If so we can link posters to the counter/cycle
[22:59] <natrium42> no, right now it's auto-inc
[23:00] <natrium42> for each new position
[23:00] <natrium42> does your flight computer send position id?
[23:01] <rjharrison> ok well an extra field to store the id of the telemetry and you are sorted

[23:01] Xenion (n=robert@p579FC932.dip.t-dialin.net) left irc: Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer)
[23:01] <rjharrison> all payload here send aout a unique id per telem
[23:01] <natrium42> what happens if your flight comp reboots?
[23:02] <natrium42> is it stored in eeprom?
[23:02] <rjharrison> ahh
[23:02] <rjharrison> well
[23:02] <rjharrison> I think mine start back at 1
[23:02] <rjharrison> it never happens :)
[23:02] <rjharrison> well occasionally
[23:03] <natrium42> this could in theory be detected though
[23:03] <natrium42> the ids could be based on modulus, so you just roll over past a cutoff
[23:05] <rjharrison> yep true
[23:05] <rjharrison> or i could detect in the listener
[23:17] <rjharrison> G8KHW: Files nearly up
[23:22] SpeedEvil (n=user@tor/regular/SpeedEvil) joined #highaltitude.
[23:24] <rjharrison> all windows users of dl-fldigi need to upgrade asap
[23:25] <rjharrison> G8KHW you need to do this for your payload to work and you should not get any more crashes

[23:34] <fergusnoble> hello
[23:35] <jcoxon> fergusnoble, !
[23:35] <jcoxon> welcome back
[23:35] <fergusnoble> yes, im back in the land of the living

[23:37] <edmoore> though a brief hi, I am spending the next 3 days in the land of the dead, till project deadline on sat
[23:37] <jcoxon> edmoore, we've updated dl-fldigi a bit more
[23:37] <jcoxon> now it setups up the rtty shift, baud and ascii settings
[23:37] <fergusnoble> ok, got lots more tweaking to do on your scrolling? ;)
[23:37] <edmoore> ok, will have an install, but probs not till sat
[23:38] <edmoore> ha, no, that's all long since done
[23:38] <jcoxon> np
[23:38] <edmoore> it's image proc comp tomoorow
[23:38] <edmoore> final report on fri
[23:38] <fergusnoble> ok cool
[23:38] <edmoore> then 'the customer has changed the spec' mods to the software, and final report for that in on sat
[23:38] <edmoore> then all done
[23:39] <fergusnoble> oh that really sucks
[23:39] <fergusnoble> i guess its good experience for the real world
[23:40] <edmoore> pm
[23:41] <fergusnoble> edmoore: that chip I was looking at was the CC1110 btw
[23:41] <fergusnoble> its TI not cypress

[23:42] <fergusnoble> edmoore: night
[23:42] <jcoxon> night
[23:42] jcoxon (n=jcoxon@217.39.7.252) left irc: "Leaving"
[23:42] <edmoore> fergusnoble: i beleive so yes, though he can obv answer. see you soon
[23:42] <fergusnoble> ok, ye
[23:42] <fergusnoble> bye
[23:44] <natrium42> yo fergusnoble
[23:44] <natrium42> where have you been?
[23:44] <fergusnoble> hey natrium42!
[23:44] <natrium42> yeah, venus works
[23:44] <fergusnoble> ive had exams so i kinda went underground
[23:44] <natrium42> hehe
[23:45] <fergusnoble> oh awesome, what antenna?
[23:45] <fergusnoble> hows things been your end?
[23:45] <natrium42> i tried a helix as well a few different patches
[23:45] edmoore (n=ed@pomegranate.chu.cam.ac.uk) left irc:
[23:45] <natrium42> pretty good, thanks
[23:46] <fergusnoble> cool, so whats new in the world of highaltitude?
[23:46] <fergusnoble> i notice the tracker has come on a lot
[23:47] <natrium42> hehe, it needs a rewrite :P
[23:47] <natrium42> rjharrison did a launch with a 3 kg balloon last week
[23:48] <natrium42> but no new records unfortunately
[23:49] <natrium42> ascent rate decreased and it stayed at over 30km for too long and popped
[23:50] <fergusnoble> yeah, ed said it might have been a gravity wave?
[23:50] <SpeedEvil> Wow!
[23:50] <fergusnoble> shame it sounded like a new record for sure, was a really light payload no?
[23:51] <SpeedEvil> Amateur detection of astrophysical phenomena that billions have been spent on!
[23:51] <fergusnoble> SpeedEvil: hi
[23:51] <SpeedEvil> (or not)
[23:51] <natrium42> fergusnoble, iirc 0.5kg
[23:51] <SpeedEvil> yeah - some sort of upper air turbulence
[23:51] <SpeedEvil> or vortex - cause not well understood
[23:51] <natrium42> pictures of sunrise were awesome though
[23:52] <fergusnoble> maybe a temperature inversion? not sure if they happen that high though
[23:52] <fergusnoble> natrium42: are the pics on the web?
[23:52] <natrium42> yep, rjharisson's flickr account
[23:53] <natrium42> http://www.flickr.com/photos/30721501@N05/sets/72157618814637849/

[23:57] <fergusnoble> nice
[23:59] <fergusnoble> so what is this new modded fldigi?
