[09:57] <jcoxon> thats surely a oxymoron

[13:16] <cuddykid> Hi all, been a while since i've been on here! .. Hoping to launch my first balloon this summer if all goes well (yn)! I was wondering if there are any of you that have made your own yagi for the 434mhz band?? Are there any good tutorials? thanks
[13:20] <SpeedEvil> yes, some here have.
[13:20] <DanielRichman> whatever you do, use a pillar drill
[13:20] <SpeedEvil> Where are you?
[13:20] <cuddykid> worcester
[13:20] <SpeedEvil> The tracker is working quite well.
[13:21] <G8TMV> Is it actually worth building one? I would have thought you could get one on Ebay or the like for less than the materials to build one
[13:21] <SpeedEvil> On several launches, we've had a distributed listener network with >6 people.
[13:21] <SpeedEvil> G8TMV: Well - the materials are a couple of meters and wire, and some bamboo - minimum.
[13:21] <SpeedEvil> Oh - and some coax
[13:21] <SpeedEvil> meters of wire
[13:22] <cuddykid> yes, the spacenear.us is fantastic! great job guys. Do you think i'd be able to receive signal using yagi from worcester area?
[13:22] <G8TMV> Hmm.. wel I guess if you can liberate the bamboo from parents or similar...
[13:23] <G8TMV> cuddykid: yes, several people manage it from long distances
[13:23] <cuddykid> great
[13:23] <SpeedEvil> ~600km
[13:23] <SpeedEvil> Without anything extreme at all
[13:23] <cuddykid> wow!
[13:23] <G8TMV> I think the best distance so far is from Wales
[13:23] <SpeedEvil> IIRC that was a modest yagi
[13:23] <cuddykid> using ntx2?
[13:23] <SpeedEvil> G8TMV: ireland
[13:24] <SpeedEvil> cuddykid: yes
[13:24] <cuddykid> incredible!
[13:25] <G8TMV> it's still line of sight once the balloon gets high enough
[13:25] <SpeedEvil> yes - though not by much once you hit 600km :)
[13:26] Simon-MPFH (~simon@phantom.mpfh.co.uk) joined #highaltitude.
[13:31] <cuddykid> is there any place that i could buy a 434 yagi? checked maplin, ebay and the likes and no luck
[13:33] <SpeedEvil> also search 433,70cm
[13:34] <cuddykid> ok
[13:38] <cuddykid> better luck :) prices are coming out around £40 though, probably will attempt to build my own!

[22:47] <Randomskk> the "data lines received: 12; max distance: 3km" one was amusing
[22:47] <Randomskk> but the other had a respectable three digit distance :D
[22:48] <jcoxon> hehe, i went through the logs
[22:48] <jcoxon> :-p
[22:48] <jcoxon> considering that those were the last transmissions for a good couple of hours I was the same :-p
[22:48] <Randomskk> :P
[22:49] <jcoxon> hopefully will encourage others to follow
[22:49] <jcoxon> wouldn't mind a few myself
[22:49] <Randomskk> yea it's a good idea
[22:49] <jcoxon> have a PBH-9 qsl card from last year
[22:49] <jcoxon> and a card from PD3EM who recovered BH4
