[03:16] <rjharrison> HAB is addictive
[03:16] <rjharrison> Warning :)
[03:17] <rjharrison> It's 3:16 and I'm thinking about power MOSFETS and Pyros
[03:30] <SpeedEvil> :)
[03:30] Action: SpeedEvil is pondering a new freezer.
[03:30] <SpeedEvil> And considering that it's -55C at 30KM.
[03:31] <SpeedEvil> I could just use a really big static balloon, and some string, with a hoist.
[03:33] <rjharrison> hehe
[03:33] <rjharrison> SpeedEvil: I like that idea + no electrical cost
[03:33] <rjharrison> save perhaps for the winch
[03:34] <rjharrison> The CAA might have somthing to say on it
[03:39] Action: SpeedEvil attempts to resist the temptation to DIY a fridge-freezer.

[11:30] <rjharrison> hey RocketBoy: edmoore: is there a gps model of the uk kicking about for checking position against sea boundries
[11:31] <edmoore> i had a text file kicking around about three years ago when i did it for nova2....
[11:31] <edmoore> might be on here somewhere
[11:31] <edmoore> all i did was copy and paste from a polygon on google earth though
[11:32] <rjharrison> Oh good idea
[11:32] <rjharrison> I'll do that
[11:32] <SpeedEvil> OSM
[11:32] <SpeedEvil> osm.org
[11:33] <SpeedEvil> edmoore's answer may be better though
[11:33] <SpeedEvil> as you probably don't strictly want the coast
[11:40] <RocketBoy> rjharrison: - yes I have some code in XABENs that checks current position against a rough UK polygon and works out the distance to the edge.
[11:40] edmoore (n=ed@88-202-192-1.rdns.as8401.net) left irc:
[11:43] <RocketBoy> actually its more than that - it calculates the current landing spot (based on the ascent) and compares that with the UK polygon
[11:46] <rjharrison> RocketBoy: If you don't mind I would quite like the polygon info
[11:47] <rjharrison> I'm gping to have a go a stoing in program memory using unsigned char mydata[11][10] PROGMEM =
[11:47] <rjharrison> Somthing like that

[11:53] <rjharrison> off to radio club till 3

[19:04] <jcoxon> wb8elk launch
[19:06] <natrium42> HF?
[19:06] <jcoxon> no
[19:07] <jcoxon> aprs i think
[19:07] <natrium42> :'(
[19:08] <jcoxon> i know
[19:08] <jcoxon> "Simplex voice repeater on 144.36 MHz
[19:08] <jcoxon> APRS on 144.39: WB8ELK-11"
[19:20] <natrium42> jcoxon, is the stream working for you?
[19:20] <jcoxon> yes
[19:20] <natrium42> i see a black screen
[19:20] <jcoxon> they are filling the balloon now
[19:20] <jcoxon> wish we had a building to fill the balloons in
[19:21] <natrium42> oh, there we go
[19:22] <natrium42> jcoxon, it's so routine with WB8ELK :D
[19:22] <jcoxon> indeed
[19:22] <jcoxon> our launches are a lot more panicked
[19:24] <jcoxon> been trying to persuade Bill to use dl-fldigi
[19:24] <jcoxon> he said he was interested in it, passed him the link then all quiet
[19:24] <jcoxon> hehe
[19:29] <natrium42> is he using aprs?
[19:29] <natrium42> yes
[19:30] <natrium42> i guess there is no reason to use an other system then
[19:30] <jcoxon> i mean for his 10mW missions
[19:30] <jcoxon> he has been testing dominoEX and such
[19:30] <jcoxon> the nice thing about dl-fldigi is that if fldigi supports it you can use it
[19:31] <natrium42> ah
[19:32] <jcoxon> hopefully dl-fldigi might become the trans-a standard :-p
[19:32] <natrium42> yeah
[19:33] Action: natrium42 is about to bake 35 usb stepper motor controllers
[19:34] <jcoxon> oooooo
[19:35] <natrium42> it's quite quick though
[19:35] <natrium42> put the stencil over pcb, add solder paste with squeegee
[19:36] <natrium42> place all components with tweezers and put the pcb onto electric skillet
[19:36] <jcoxon> :-)
[19:37] <natrium42> the placing of components takes the longest
[19:37] <natrium42> should really build a pick & place machine...
[19:37] <SpeedEvil> np: Ini Kamozi - Here comes the hot-stepper.
[19:37] <natrium42> someday...
[19:38] <jcoxon> haha
[19:38] <natrium42> :)
[19:39] <jcoxon> just need an automatd natrium
[19:39] <jcoxon> let that do your pcb making and you can do other cool stuff
[19:40] <natrium42> yes
[19:40] <natrium42> i will try having pcbs assembled in china soon
[19:40] <natrium42> going to be a larger run though
[19:42] <jcoxon> i'm happy with my single sided through hole
[19:42] <natrium42> :)
[19:47] <jcoxon> now got to add a gps
[19:47] <jcoxon> :-)
[19:47] <SpeedEvil> natrium42: these for ebay?
[19:48] <natrium42> dunno yet, i have an online store
