[11:08] <SpeedEvil> Carbonated H2O2?
[11:13] <SpeedEvil> hahahhahhahhahahahhahhaha
[11:13] <SpeedEvil> Let's bash hydrogen - and replace it with ... Alcohol!
[11:16] <Laurenceb> lol
[11:17] <Laurenceb> I got the rocket sim up to 560Km cicular
[11:17] <Laurenceb> with the pressurised modules
[11:17] <SpeedEvil> :)
[11:18] <Laurenceb> you could get a lot higher with a 4th stage
[11:18] <Laurenceb> - small "space tug" with a few hundered m/s delta v
[11:18] <Laurenceb> then go into a highly elliptical orbit and circularise
[11:19] <SpeedEvil> solid?
[11:20] <Laurenceb> its good to have something very controllable
[11:21] <Laurenceb> maybe H2O2 and it can double as attitude control
[11:22] <Laurenceb> the third stage doesnt have to have a very high thrust, in fact it works fine with 200N thrust
[11:23] <Laurenceb> in facts thats required for it not to suffer from crazy accel
[11:24] <Laurenceb> bbl

[20:48] <hallam> hey natrium42
[20:48] <hallam> got a question..
[20:49] <hallam> Fergus says you made something with a Venus chip and a sarantel antenna
[20:49] <hallam> was it an active or passive ant and how well did it work?

[22:20] <jcoxon> hey all
[22:20] <jcoxon> ping natrium42
[22:21] <Fighter1405> hey jcoxon
[22:22] <Fighter1405> Question if you have a second?
[22:22] <jcoxon> go for it
[22:23] <Fighter1405> I found a 9v dc adapter in a cupboard, and I was wondering if that would be appropriate to run the radio based on the fact that the 9v battery worked? I know you said 12v was optimum but is 9v safe?
[22:24] <jcoxon> hmmmm i'm not sure
[22:24] <jcoxon> let me check the manual
[22:24] <Fighter1405> Thanks :)
[22:24] <jcoxon> i doubt it to tell you the truth
[22:25] <jcoxon> in theory 8-15v
[22:25] <jcoxon> but 12 is a lot better
[22:26] <Fighter1405> Hmm ok, perhaps I should just get the 15v anyway then
[22:27] <Fighter1405> *12v
[22:27] <Fighter1405> Thanks :)
[22:28] <jcoxon> i think 8v
[22:28] <jcoxon> will do
[22:29] <Fighter1405> Theoretically I presume the transmission is what requires the most power anyway?
[22:29] <jcoxon> yes
[22:30] <jcoxon> and you aren't allowed to transmit
[22:30] <Fighter1405> Exactly
