[02:10] <Vk3vil> Hi guys
[02:10] <pwoit> hi
[02:11] <Vk3vil> What height does this baloon expect to reach
[02:11] <Vk3vil> We are trying to contact through it from melbourne as part of national field day
[02:12] <mazzanet> we're in bendigo trying too
[02:13] <shenki> Vk3vil: usually about 35km is the max height. a fortnight ago we hit 32km
[02:13] <mazzanet> waiting for the footprint to enlarge
[02:14] <mazzanet> oh wow
[02:14] <Vk3vil> Yeah
[02:14] <mazzanet> so looking another half hour or so?
[02:14] <Vk3vil> We are trying to work out how high it needs to be to reach us here
[02:15] <Vk3vil> We are at scienceworks museum in melbourne with the emdrc station
[02:16] <mazzanet> we're at discovery science centre
[02:16] <mazzanet> with marc
[02:17] <pwoit> is the emdrc listen on another freq?
[02:17] <Vk3vil> We are listening on vk3rec
[02:18] <pwoit> ok
[02:18] <Vk3vil> We also have hf here but not on right this second
[02:18] <Vk3vil> No one is sitting there
[02:19] <shenki> Darkside: ping
[02:19] <mazzanet> we're lisyening on 434.65
[02:20] <shenki> Vk3vil: the prediction for this launch is burst at 31863m, at 4:30UTC
[02:21] <mazzanet> the balloon has a hf payload?
[02:21] <Vk3vil> Mazzanet are you on hf and we can tune up
[02:22] <Vk3vil> For the baloon we are listening 146.450
[02:22] <Vk3vil> Thanks shenki
[02:23] <mazzanet> ah there's a crossband rpt
[02:24] <mazzanet> 146.450/438.900 ctcss 123
[02:24] <Vk3vil> Yep thats it :)

[02:27] <Vk3vil> Hmmm
[02:27] <Vk3vil> Tracker site is not giving me positioning info atm
[02:29] <pwoit> Position: -35.0434,138.9889 Altitude: 5440 m Rate: 2.7 m/s Speed: 57 km/h
[02:29] <Vk3vil> Thanks pwoit
[02:29] <shenki> http://spacenear.us/tracker/
[02:30] <pwoit> its about 40k from its origin
[02:30] <Vk3vil> Shenki. I am on there but i've lost the secton on the right with all the height and position info
[02:31] <pwoit> foot print is almost at mildura east and pt lincoln west
[02:32] <shenki> Vk3vil: as the flight progresses, the large number of data points makes the page quite slow to load, especially if you have a slow PC or net connection
[02:32] <pwoit> pt augusta nth and robe south
[02:32] <Vk3vil> Pwoit at what height would we expect the footprint to reach melbourne city
[02:32] <shenki> Vk3vil: make sure you're using chrome or firefox, and just give it a few minutes
[02:32] <Vk3vil> We are on an ipad for the site and my phone for irc
[02:32] <shenki> ah, yes, it wont work on the ipad :(
[02:33] <shenki> i tried it last weekend
[02:33] <Vk3vil> It worked earlier
[02:33] <Vk3vil> :(
[02:33] <shenki> yeah, the ipad struggles as soon as the number of data points gets large
[02:33] <pwoit> not sure what height im just watching hehe
[02:33] <shenki> not enough RAM i'd guess
[02:33] <pwoit> ipad shmipad
[02:34] <Vk3vil> Not mine and def not a fan :)
[02:34] <pwoit> Position: -35.0382,139.0413 Altitude: 6354 m Rate: 2.9 m/s Speed: 50 km/h
[02:34] <shenki> it's moving quite a bit furhter north than the prediction
[02:35] <pwoit> wonder if any stations have perched themselves on a mountain somewhere
[02:35] <shenki> pwoit: how do you work out the foot print?
[02:35] <pwoit> its on the web page
[02:36] <pwoit> has a radious outline showing
[02:36] <shenki> oh, that's the green circle. gotcha
[02:36] <pwoit> yep
[02:36] <Vk3vil> Gone to car to get a real laptop
[02:36] <pwoit> i can hear locals calling but no where near them unless they are up high
[02:40] <Vk3vil> Now the ipad is displaying again
[02:41] Gnea (~gnea@unaffiliated/gnea) joined #highaltitude.
[02:41] <shenki> Vk3vil: cool. it probably just needs a bit more time - when loading up the page it maxes out the cpu on my laptop using chrome (whcih has kickass javascript performance). so it's no surprise the ipad takes a bit longer.

[02:42] <Vk3vil> Good thing it worked to
[02:42] <natrium42> so the site gets really slow if there are alot of points, i recommend using Google Chrome
[02:42] <Vk3vil> I left my phone to lappy usb cable at home
[02:43] <pwoit> got bluetooth
[02:43] <Vk3vil> Thats a point

[03:57] <natrium42> it was insertion sorting based on gps time -- changed it to server time
[03:57] <natrium42> nost sure why it bugs out with gps time
[03:57] <juxta_> ah awesome, thanks
[03:57] <natrium42> *not
[03:57] <juxta_> the radio horizon ring is working really well
[03:58] <natrium42> :)
[03:58] <juxta_> we can just hear some calls coming i9n from melbourne now
[03:58] <natrium42> that's the 0 degree horizon
[03:58] <mazzanet> i can hear but can't contact :(
[03:58] <natrium42> i could insert the formula for, say 5 degrees if you want

[03:59] <cyberteque> hello!
[03:59] <natrium42> juxta_, btw the change also fixed car tracks
[03:59] <natrium42> hi cyberteque
[04:00] <juxta_> natrium42, 5 degrees could be good
[04:00] <cyberteque> how is the flight progressing? near biliat cons park, thats a nasty area to walk around in
[04:00] <juxta_> hi mazzanet, where are you
[04:00] <natrium42> yeah, no swimming this time :P
[04:01] <Vk3vil> I can now hear
[04:01] <shenki> natrium42: is the horizon ring code server side, or can i find it in the javascript?
[04:01] <natrium42> it's in the js

[04:37] <Vk3vil> Hmmmmm
[04:37] <Vk3vil> Is it still going up?
[04:37] <shenki> yes
[04:37] <shenki> still cilmbing at about 3.5m/s
[04:38] <Gnea> seems to be holding a rather wild pattern
[04:38] <pwoit> what hieght is orbit??
[04:39] <cyberteque> avoiding karoonda! lol
[04:39] <Gnea> out of F2?
[04:39] <SpeedEvil> Orbit is not a height.
[04:39] <SpeedEvil> It's a speed - 8000m/s or so
[04:39] <SpeedEvil> near the atmosphere.
[04:40] <SpeedEvil> But to get an orbit at 35km that'd last one whole orbit would mean something with the density of a hundred m long cylinder of osmium.
[04:40] <cyberteque> actually "orbit" can be used to describe a circling motion, not just space craft
[04:40] <pwoit> its gotta pop soon
[04:40] <SpeedEvil> Sure.

[04:46] <natrium42> it got very high
[04:46] <natrium42> nope
[04:46] <natrium42> predicted to land in a conservation area
[04:46] <cyberteque> after last weeks mythbusters we cant say "dropping like a lead balloon"
[04:46] <natrium42> with almost no roads L:S
[04:47] <Gnea> man
[04:47] <Gnea> that's gonna be rough
[04:47] <natrium42> no kidding
[04:47] <Gnea> natrium42: did you happen to catch apogee?
[04:47] <cyberteque> looks near the intersection of herrman and O'rielly road
[04:48] <pwoit> rapidly
[04:48] <Gnea> cyberteque: I wouldn't count on that preciseness until within 5 minutes of landing
[04:48] <pwoit> hope the chutes open
[04:48] <natrium42> Gnea, 34205 m
[04:48] <cyberteque> i guees the wind is different at all altitudes
[04:49] <cyberteque> this is sooo much better than my fm "bipper" on a paper hot air balloon
[04:50] <Gnea> natrium42: 112 221 feet
[04:51] <Gnea> minus the space
[04:51] <natrium42> yeah, puts it in 32nd place on http://www.arhab.org/records/records/haltitude.html
[04:51] <mazzanet> interesting path
[04:51] <natrium42> it's a very good result for payload carrying a repeater
[04:52] <natrium42> it's not the lightest
[04:53] <Gnea> yeah it is
[04:53] <cyberteque> if it keeps circling like this recovery shouldn't be too bad
[04:53] <pwoit> wait till the wind picks it up and about 10000
[04:55] <cyberteque> the BOM doppler says we have 20-30 km/h wind
[04:55] <cyberteque> wow! it really scooted east just then!
[04:56] <natrium42> horizontal speed is increasing
[04:56] <pwoit> jet stream at lower levels
[04:56] <Gnea> prediction seems to have improved over last time
[04:56] <cyberteque> holy wind speed batman!
[04:57] <Gnea> well it's falling too, so that likely has an effect
[04:57] <Gnea> just a little gust and whoosh!
[04:58] <cyberteque> pickin up some serious speed!
[05:00] <Gnea> well, if there's any possible good news, is that they're already en-route pretty quickly, and if the prediction holds up, it will land in a flat portion that should be easily attainable by foot from the roat
[05:00] <Gnea> *road
[05:00] <Gnea> unless there's a marsh in the way
[05:01] <cyberteque> can you imagine falling from that height? way too long to think about it!
[05:01] <Gnea> ugh, it's moving west
[05:01] <Gnea> cyberteque: we've already made a movie of it:)
[05:01] <pwoit> if it lands where the prediction is gonna take a while to get to it
[05:01] <Gnea> yeah
[05:01] <Gnea> it did the same thing last time
[05:01] <pwoit> try east
[05:02] <Gnea> are you sure? looks like the target landing zone is moving west
[05:02] <cyberteque> damn near due east
[05:03] <pwoit> the baloon is moving not the target
[05:03] <Gnea> well, yes :)
[05:04] <Gnea> it's just past sandalwood
[05:05] <pwoit> that grean area looks pretty thick bush
[05:05] <Gnea> oh man, knew this was gonna happen - the target landing area is moving east
[05:06] <Gnea> but it seems to be holding fairly steady on the general area
[05:06] <Gnea> impressive :)
[05:07] <pwoit> green car looks to be heading to drop zone
[05:07] <pwoit> blue car cant be stuffed
[05:08] <pwoit> red car is lost
[05:08] <cyberteque> it only looks thick on the map, that scrub is pretty sparce
[05:08] <Gnea> when's the last time it rained?
[05:08] <shenki> looks like we're not getting telemetry from blue car
[05:08] <shenki> rained a fair bit across the state last night
[05:09] <shenki> was quite dry for the week before that
[05:09] <Gnea> how well do you think the ground will have dried since?
[05:10] <cyberteque> we had 15mm last night
[05:10] <shenki> in adelaide it's been sunny and breezy all day, but not all that warm. it shouldn't be very wet there.
[05:10] <cyberteque> that area is all old dunes, it where they "grow rocks"
[05:11] <Gnea> okay, I wasn't sure what the terrain is really like, I can see the shrubs from the satellite, but they're rather fuzzy
[05:11] <cyberteque> its open malley scrub
[05:11] <Gnea> so hope they've got gollashes
[05:11] <cyberteque> sandy soil
[05:12] <Gnea> yeah, and with lower temperatures, it might've retained moisture
[05:12] <Gnea> dude, red just jumped
[05:12] <Gnea> it's almost there
[05:12] <natrium42> haha, green car is doing 124 km/h

[05:16] <Darkside> which isnt running the tracker so well
[05:16] <Gnea> it's getting closer to the road
[05:16] <cyberteque> looks like it might land in that cleared area
[05:16] <Gnea> on the NW portion of the conservation
[05:16] <natrium42> cyberteque, are you looking in satellite view?
[05:16] <Gnea> oh oh
[05:17] <Gnea> it just cleared the conservation area, just to the west of it
[05:17] <natrium42> there is no difference in satellite view
[05:17] <cyberteque> yeah, i know that park pretty well
[05:17] <natrium42> trees go beyound area
[05:18] <Gnea> I switch between satellite & terrain
[05:18] <natrium42> hmm, green car missed turn
[05:18] <pwoit> looks like red car winning
[05:18] <cyberteque> the lighter area is "heathland", the darker area is "open woodland"
[05:18] <Gnea> getting closer to jim jolly road
[05:19] <pwoit> past jim jolly
[05:19] <cyberteque> way past
[05:19] <Darkside> oh man this is awesome
[05:19] <Darkside> tracker is working on my phone now
[05:19] <Gnea> well, if the indicators are correct, looks like they can use some dirt roads to get to it
[05:19] <cyberteque> north about 2-5km will be great for recovery
[05:20] <cyberteque> some of those tracks are just horrible
[05:20] <Gnea> pwoit: what was the vimeo url again? lost it :/
[05:20] <cyberteque> how low can it go before you lose the rf link?
[05:21] <Gnea> last time it landed in the drink, it was still transmitting
[05:21] <Gnea> bets on farmland vs. shrubby land? :)
[05:21] <natrium42> looks like it will land in the tomahawk shaped area
[05:22] <cyberteque> looks like the chase car took the wrong track!

[05:24] <shenki> keep in mind the satelite images might be 3-4, perhaps more, years old
[05:24] <cyberteque> they should have gone right then left
[05:24] <Gnea> it's coming in hot
[05:24] <mazzanet> i did!
[05:24] <Gnea> 732m
[05:24] <pwoit> can we run a book on who gets there first
[05:24] <Darkside> mazzanet: vk5nex?
[05:24] <Gnea> 677m
[05:25] <cyberteque> that area is a pig, its so easy to get lost
[05:25] <Gnea> 618m
[05:25] <mazzanet> Darkside: what's your involvemenr?
[05:25] <Darkside> cyberteque: they have maps with gps
[05:25] <Darkside> they'll be fine
[05:25] <Gnea> 577m

[05:26] <shenki> telemetry has stopped?
[05:26] <cyberteque> next left guys!
[05:26] <Darkside> juxta: !!!
[05:26] <Darkside> shenki: ZSN should still be able to get it
[05:27] <Gnea> i'm showing lack of telemetry as well
[05:27] <Darkside> and terry will get it closer
[05:27] <Gnea> or maybe the hill is blocking signal

[05:27] <natrium42> does anybody know ground elevation?
[05:27] <Gnea> it's basically between 2 hills
[05:28] <Darkside> the cars havent updated for me
[05:28] <cyberteque> it looks like its down, i'll dig out my 1/50,000, but that looks like the right altitude for the area
[05:28] <Gnea> my bet is that it's on the ground between 2 hills, and the hills are blocking RF
[05:28] <Darkside> mm
[05:28] Action: Gnea sticks to that
[05:28] <Darkside> i guess they havent cot telemetry since its landed
[05:29] <Darkside> i wonder why the cars havent updated
[05:29] <pwoit> have now
[05:29] <pwoit> zm close
[05:29] <Darkside> aha yes
[05:29] <Gnea> blue's almost there
[05:29] <Darkside> matt is close in
[05:29] <Darkside> they must be on teh edges of nextG coverage
[05:30] <Gnea> sounds choppy
[05:30] <cyberteque> what nextg coverage? where?
[05:30] <Darkside> cyberteque: well they've been updating occasionally
[05:30] <Darkside> so there must be 3g coverage
[05:30] SpeedEvil (1000@tor/regular/SpeedEvil) left irc: Read error: Operation timed out
[05:30] <shenki> yeah, keep an eye on the positions recieved at the bottom left of the map
[05:30] <Gnea> cyberteque: telstra
[05:31] <cyberteque> sorry, i got conned by a telemarketer, telling me how wonderful next g is!
[05:31] <Darkside> nextg has excellent coverage
[05:31] <Gnea> ah yeah, 1 new position
[05:31] <shenki> and good propogation :P
[05:31] <Darkside> yep
[05:31] <cyberteque> i get better coverage with my optus gprs/gsm/wcdma
[05:31] <shenki> and good backhaul
[05:31] <Darkside> where they are, its going to be crp coverage on any network
[05:31] <Darkside> VZI has dropped out completely it seems

[05:32] <Darkside> adrian has coverage
[05:32] <Darkside> or so it seems
[05:32] <Darkside> new balloon update
[05:32] <Gnea> bam
[05:32] <Darkside> 83m altitude
[05:32] <Gnea> 3 new position
[05:32] <cyberteque> i hope they have a compass as well as a gps before going in the scrub
[05:32] <Darkside> ZM is back in coverage range
[05:33] <Darkside> i bet its in a tree
[05:33] <Gnea> that's what i thought
[05:33] <Gnea> but... shrubs?

[05:34] <Gnea> something is going horribly wrong with the prediction software
[05:34] <Darkside> nah, it thinks its ascending
[05:34] <Darkside> just bodgy gps data
[05:34] <natrium42> it calculated descent rate to be very low
[05:34] <Gnea> I'm guessing he's got a visual
[05:34] <natrium42> as it's resting
[05:35] <Darkside> hmm no updates on ZMs location
[05:35] Action: natrium42 should add landing detection
[05:35] <Darkside> what the hell is ZSN doing
[05:36] <cyberteque> why are they going north? is the chase car a 2wd?
[05:36] <Darkside> blue and green are 4wds
[05:36] <Darkside> red isnt
[05:36] <Gnea> looks like he's trying to get on top of it
[05:36] <cyberteque> so why didnt they take the track? unless the gate is locked
[05:37] <Darkside> they might be walking in
[05:37] <Gnea> do they have rangers?
[05:37] <cyberteque> the track would get them to within a km,
[05:37] <Darkside> ima give terry a call
[05:37] <VK3FGOV> little bit of ground to cover if the are walking
[05:38] <cyberteque> not full time, its why i used to poach goats there
[05:38] <natrium42> they are close
[05:38] <Gnea> heh
[05:38] <Darkside> terry is out of range
[05:38] <natrium42> australia only has lame animals right?
[05:38] <Darkside> yup
[05:38] <cyberteque> the 1/50,000 says its about 400M there
[05:38] <natrium42> :)
[05:38] <Darkside> nothing that would carry a balloon away :P
[05:39] <mazzanet> heh
[05:39] <Darkside> cyberteque: GPS says 80m
[05:39] <Gnea> well, it looks like blue's on it
[05:39] <cyberteque> am i looking at the wron page?
[05:39] <mazzanet> 1/50,000?
[05:39] <cyberteque> and 80m is awefully low for there
[05:40] <vk3uh> 1:50,000 height is probably in feet
[05:40] <cyberteque> 1/50,000 topographic map
[05:40] <Gnea> 6 new positions?!

[05:44] <Gnea> yeah, it hasn't changed
[05:44] <Darkside> so he hasnt been able to update

[05:44] <Gnea> ah ok
[05:44] <Darkside> whic has better coverage

[05:47] <Darkside> he wont get it until he gets back

[05:48] <Darkside> just wait for ZM to get to the balloon
[05:48] <Darkside> i'm betting terry is with them too

[12:22] <shenki> yeah, i noticed juxta and natrium42 discussing ways to alleviate that issue
[12:22] <jonsowman> i mentioned to natrium that that needs to be sorted
[12:22] <jonsowman> be really careful if you're on a bandwidth-critical connection
[12:22] <jonsowman> the code is already in place to fix it
[12:23] <shenki> it's not just bandwidth tho, the amount of processing it does when it draws the line for several thousand data points at once stalls even on real machines
[12:23] edmoore (~ed@88-202-210-81.rdns.as8401.net) joined #highaltitude.
[12:24] <shenki> you could fix the bandwidth issue by storing the data locally using a HTML5 webdatabase api
[12:24] <shenki> http://dev.w3.org/html5/webdatabase/
[12:25] <shenki> but then you want to do some sort of filterting so you don't try to render too many points

[14:32] <eroomde> good thanks. you? how's term?
[14:32] <jonsowman> yep going well so far :)
[14:32] <jonsowman> had a crazy week this week. but an easier one next week
[14:33] <eroomde> i remember the number of supervisions takes a bit of a jump up
[14:33] <eroomde> is that the case for you too?
[14:33] <jonsowman> it's not that so much as we have 5 supervisions one week, and none the week after
[14:33] <eroomde> ah right
[14:33] <eroomde> out yes
[14:33] <eroomde> oh*
[14:33] <eroomde> that was it
[14:34] <eroomde> week of hell followed by week of not working as you had no supervisions that week causing a week of hell the next week
[14:34] <jonsowman> yep that is going to happen
[14:34] <jonsowman> trying to do as much as I can in the off-week
[14:34] <jonsowman> you been up to much?
[14:34] <eroomde> had food poisoning the last few days
[14:35] <eroomde> but better today though
[14:35] <jonsowman> D:
[14:35] <jonsowman> that's not good
[14:35] <eroomde> also anterior cruciate ligament busted while making a dodgy step hiking, which really sucks
[14:35] <eroomde> so rather bed bound the last few days
[14:35] <jonsowman> :(
[14:35] <eroomde> but i guess the rest that they mutually enforced in mutually good for the other
[14:36] <jonsowman> that's true
[14:37] <SpeedEvil> Ow.
[14:37] <eroomde> more time on a pc as a result, maybe I should use it to try and be a little more productive
[14:37] <SpeedEvil> Surgery to repair?
[14:37] <eroomde> i'm doing some hiking in sweden so i really want the knee to be good for it, so really am keeping it rested
[14:38] <SpeedEvil> Busted as in snapped? Or strained.
[14:38] <eroomde> SpeedEvil: I really hope not! just compression, elevation, anti-inflams, ice, repeat
[14:38] <SpeedEvil> Have you had an actual doc look at it?
[14:38] <SpeedEvil> One skilled in the art.
[14:39] <eroomde> a physio friend
[14:39] <eroomde> it's not proper bad, just painful to walk on for extended periods
[14:39] <SpeedEvil> Fair enough.
[14:39] <eroomde> and getting up and down the stairs
[14:39] <SpeedEvil> Mum broke a ligament in foot, and it ended up quite disabling over time.
[14:40] <SpeedEvil> It's especailly hard to repair if it's left, as it contracts, and needs re-stretched ove rhte course of months
[14:40] <SpeedEvil> Sorry to be depressing, and I hope yours isn't serious.
[14:40] <eroomde> i have heard that they can be a real pain, yep

[17:03] <SpeedEvil> (not related to anything)
[17:03] <SpeedEvil> I forgot.
[17:04] <Laurenceb> oh ive got it working with proper code, seems to be reliable but the register settings from CAPE broke the AGC
[17:04] <SpeedEvil> I was wondering if he'd pop up when highlighted.
[17:04] <Laurenceb> so annoying - theres just so many registers to set correctly
[17:05] <SpeedEvil> :)
[17:05] <Laurenceb> theres a header with all the default registers, but some of it is hardcoded into the functions

[18:49] <Laurenceb> second problem might be solvable with a shared clock
