[00:14] <fsphil> my internet should be faster than this
[00:16] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[00:16] <Lunar_Lander> 7 mins
[00:17] <fsphil> you're going to finish first :)
[00:17] <fsphil> 102
[00:32] <Lunar_Lander> OK

[00:35] <fsphil> it's alternating between the two tones, there is no data
[00:35] <fsphil> but it proves the hardware is good
[00:36] <Lunar_Lander> yeah
[00:36] <Lunar_Lander> and in the end?
[00:36] <Lunar_Lander> it writes
[00:36] <Lunar_Lander> RJ??RJ???RJ???
[00:37] <Lunar_Lander> as you can see
[00:38] <fsphil> switch the radio to USB mode (you'll need to retune)

[00:44] <Lunar_Lander> YES!
[00:44] <Lunar_Lander> ?
[00:44] <Lunar_Lander> did you get that from the video audio?
[00:50] <fsphil> yea
[00:51] <fsphil> had to reverse it with the RV button, so either the radio was in LSB mode or the mark and space frequences are backwards
[00:53] <Lunar_Lander> yes
[00:53] <Lunar_Lander> I was in USB there
[00:55] jasonb (~jasonb@12.201.129.162) left irc: Ping timeout: 264 seconds

[07:14] <griffonbot> @adamcudworth: 2 years in the making, time for #HABE1 to take to the skies - launch set for 2pm BST #UKHAS [http://twitter.com/adamcudworth/status/87056497477025792]
[07:14] <cuddykid> morning all
[07:15] <SamSilver> big day cuddykid
[07:16] <SamSilver> wish you all the best
[07:16] <cuddykid> thanks SamSilver!
[07:16] <cuddykid> perfect weather - clear blue sky and no wind - hot air balloons around too
[07:17] <SamSilver> I am selling snake-oil and anti-tree retarder you want some?
[07:17] <cuddykid> lol
[07:17] <cuddykid> if only there was same day shipping!!
[07:17] <SamSilver> oohh hot air balloons I use to have one
[07:17] <cuddykid> oh wow
[07:18] <cuddykid> didn't get much sleep last night - obv too excited lol - like a little child going on holiday!
[07:19] <SamSilver> lol
[07:19] <cuddykid> fsphil - those photos are fantastic!
[07:19] <cuddykid> hopefully the a570 will get some good ones
[07:23] <cuddykid> launch predictions good :)
[07:23] <SamSilver> figure 8 ?
[07:23] <cuddykid> indeed! not quite 200m away though this time lol
[07:24] <cuddykid> need to adjust chdk script now
[07:24] <cuddykid> then final checks and pack the car!
[07:24] <SamSilver> don't forget to eat
[07:25] <SamSilver> I will be following from South Africa
[07:26] <cuddykid> yep then eat!! - wow, nice!!

[07:29] <mattltm> Is that the prediction for your launch today cuddykid?
[07:29] <cuddykid> mattltm: yeah
[07:29] <mattltm> Cool.
[07:29] <Darkside> oh wow
[07:29] <cuddykid> should be good :)
[07:29] <mattltm> I'll pump up the mast and see if I can track it :)
[07:29] <Darkside> very nice
[07:30] <cuddykid> cheers mattltm
[07:30] <cuddykid> indeed
[07:30] <Darkside> oooooh
[07:30] <Darkside> i'll be able to track all you guys launches when i'm at bath :P
[07:30] <cuddykid> much better than the predictions that have it landing about 100miles away!
[07:30] <cuddykid> yeah Darkside!
[07:30] <Darkside> apparently they have a massive 70cm array
[07:30] <cuddykid> awesome
[07:30] <UpuMobile> morning
[07:30] <cuddykid> right, bbl
[07:32] <UpuMobile> nice prediction
[07:34] <UpuMobile> 2.3kg of lift ?
[07:34] <UpuMobile> are you sure
[07:48] <cuddykid> UpuMobile: about 2.2kg
[07:49] <cuddykid> will get it going up at about 5m/s up to 32000 ish
[07:52] <cuddykid> yeah - ~2.2kg will lift the 950g payload up to about 32km (requires 3.06 cubic ms of he) - ascent rate ~5m/s
[07:56] <cuddykid> any items that anyone has found themselves forgetting before?! Trying to think of everything

[08:03] <jcoxon> got to go shopping with gf
[08:04] <cuddykid> being dragged along?! ;) haha
[08:04] <cuddykid> should be fine any way as I should be able to stay at launch site for a while as it drifts away then comes back
[08:04] <jcoxon> excellent
[08:04] <jcoxon> loading up the data for the live predictor
[08:05] <cuddykid> ahh, cheers jcoxon! that's great!

[08:16] <cuddykid> jcoxon, thanks!
[08:17] <cuddykid> btw, just to check, does 2.2kg of lift sound right? Used the burst calc but just wanted to double check
[08:17] <jcoxon> payload weight?
[08:17] <cuddykid> 950g
[08:17] <jcoxon> ballon size?
[08:17] <cuddykid> target alt 32km
[08:17] <cuddykid> 1000g
[08:17] <cuddykid> hwoyee
[08:17] <UpuMobile> sounds a bit much mine is 850g @ 1600g using 1250g lift
[08:18] <UpuMobile> I dunno ask someone with more experience
[08:18] <jcoxon> cuddykid, is that 2.2kg freelift?
[08:18] <jcoxon> or total lift?
[08:18] <cuddykid> total lift
[08:18] <cuddykid> Upumobile: will be about that free lift
[08:18] <jcoxon> so you are planning to fill the balloon to neutral with a weight below of 2.2kg?
[08:18] <cuddykid> yep
[08:18] <cuddykid> got the water bottles filled!
[08:18] <jcoxon> so free lift is going to be
[08:19] <jcoxon> 2.2kg - 0.950kg
[08:19] <cuddykid> oh right, thought that was total
[08:19] <cuddykid> ignore me lol
[08:19] <jcoxon> 1.25kg free lift
[08:19] <cuddykid> yeah
[08:19] <UpuMobile> you'd sure go up quick @ 2.2kg
[08:19] <jcoxon> so actually thats the same as UpuMobile
[08:20] <jcoxon> it'll ascend fast
[08:20] <cuddykid> calc puts it about 5m/s
[08:20] <cuddykid> yeah
[08:20] <cuddykid> cheers jcoxon
[08:20] <jcoxon> i'm of the opinion the more the better
[08:20] <UpuMobile> that works for boobs so why not balloons
[08:20] <jcoxon> its better to go up quick, travel less distance etc
[08:20] <cuddykid> I need to minimise the time it drifts east (beginning of flight) so faster the better for me
[08:20] <jcoxon> you might not get an alt record
[08:22] <cuddykid> jcoxon: can you think of something that I'm likely to forget/you've forgotten in the past (something essential!)?!
[08:22] <SamSilver_> cuddykid: will you be here? #highaltitude during the flight? \
[08:23] <jcoxon> cuddykid, you using lithiums?
[08:23] <cuddykid> SamSilver_: hopefully, however, at the launch site it looks like it's gprs coverage
[08:23] <cuddykid> jcoxon: yeah
[08:23] <jcoxon> http://wiki.ukhas.org.uk/guides:pre_launch_checklist
[08:23] <cuddykid> patchy edge coverage at best and tethering from iphone
[08:23] <cuddykid> thanks :)
[08:24] <cuddykid> might see if I have a big cane or something for the inevitable tree landing
[08:24] <jcoxon> eek :-)
[08:25] <cuddykid> it shouldn't land far away though (fingers crossed!!) so should be able to nip back if necessary
[08:25] <cuddykid> right, off to pack the car :)

[08:28] <RocketBoy> but the script doesn't seem to work

[08:28] <RocketBoy> is there a field day on

[08:37] <mixio> cylinder u mean the tank ?
[08:37] <fsphil> sometimes called Balloon Gas
[08:37] <jcoxon> yeah
[08:38] <mixio> yes, ok I found some athinean company giving helium tank of 3.7L at 70euros
[08:38] <Dutch-Mill> Oke thanks .. It's a bit one the edge for me but I tracked
[08:39] <jcoxon> Dutch-Mill, go for it
[08:39] <jcoxon> perhaps a range record

[08:52] <mixio> ok
[08:52] <mixio> so i need to ask for helium of 3.5L
[08:52] <cuddykid> yarr :)
[08:52] <fsphil> We had another plane flying over the launch site last time -- I think they're actually attracted to the launch :)
[08:52] <cuddykid> lol fsphil
[08:52] <cuddykid> got to remember to call atc just befor
[08:53] <UpuMobile> Would be super cool to get a picture of the payload in the air as it goes up
[08:53] <fsphil> call about hour before cuddykid
[08:53] <cuddykid> will do fsphil
[08:53] <fsphil> gives them time if they need to check anything
[08:53] <UpuMobile> did you set dlfldigi offline fsphil ?
[08:53] <fsphil> I think so, will check
[08:53] <cuddykid> the regional paper is coming along to photograph so should get some decent ground images
[08:54] <UpuMobile> just not seeing it on the map
[08:54] <UpuMobile> would anyone mind if I changed the UKHAS records page from km to meters ?
[08:54] <fsphil> online now
[08:54] <fsphil> good idea UpuMobile
[08:55] <UpuMobile> ok thx thought it might have broken or something
[08:55] <cuddykid> would like to have done a live ustream broadcast of launch but the mobile internet is shoddy here :(
[08:55] <UpuMobile> iphone ustream doesn't via 3g on vodafone
[08:56] <cuddykid> oh :(
[08:56] <cuddykid> i'm on voda
[08:56] <fsphil> UpuMobile, noise blanker doing a nice job or conditions are quiet :) I'll toggle it shortly to see
[08:56] <UpuMobile> I tried all sorts
[08:56] <UpuMobile> just leave it on :)
[08:56] <UpuMobile> its noisy as hell on 434.075
[08:57] <UpuMobile> Sure it must be the electric fences round all the farmers fields
[08:57] <fsphil> I might do a launch webcam - the 3g coverage at the launch site is patchy at best
[08:57] <fsphil> it's a good bet
[08:57] <UpuMobile> well I'm going to put Virtual AP on the laptop
[08:57] <UpuMobile> so the laptop acts as an AP
[08:57] <fsphil> ooh that's cool
[08:58] <UpuMobile> the the iPhone can stream via the Three SIM in the laptop
[08:58] <fsphil> could you get a webcam for the laptop, use it to stream directly?
[08:58] <UpuMobile> yep
[08:58] <UpuMobile> its got one in it actually
[08:58] <UpuMobile> NC10 Samsung not the last word in quality though
[08:59] <fsphil> I'd have to mute the audio in ours, the conversation can be quite expletive :)
[09:00] <UpuMobile> lol
[09:00] <UpuMobile> you can only transmit video if needed
[09:00] <cuddykid> lol fsphil
[09:00] <fsphil> might give it a try next time
[09:04] <cuddykid> now I'm happy I've got such an absurd number of aa batteries
[09:05] <UpuMobile> http://ukhas.org.uk/general:uk_records
[09:05] <UpuMobile> there
[09:05] <fsphil> hehe, MiHAB I - 3291.84 m
[09:05] <SamSilver_> cuddykid: you can never have toooo many batteries or toooo much duct tape
[09:05] <cuddykid> yep lol
[09:06] <fsphil> or too long a pole with a hook knife on the end :)
[09:06] <SamSilver_> lol
[09:06] <cuddykid> haha!!
[09:06] <fsphil> took an hour to cut the four cords
[09:06] <fsphil> but worth it
[09:06] <cuddykid> indeed
[09:06] <fsphil> I think if I stick fresh batteries in it it would be ready to fly again
[09:06] <cuddykid> has anything been ruined by the rain?
[09:06] <cuddykid> nice
[09:06] <fsphil> the bottom was a bit damp
[09:07] <fsphil> but that's about it -- don't know if anything works yet but I think it should
[09:07] <fsphil> the cameras would have gotten the worst of it
[09:07] <cuddykid> :)
[09:07] <cuddykid> at least the sd card survived
[09:09] <fsphil> like this one, possibly fav: http://www.flickr.com/photos/fsphil/5892589662/in/set-72157626013096240
[09:09] <cuddykid> wow
[09:09] <cuddykid> I hope it doesn't cloud over here - really want some photos without cloud like yours
[09:09] <fsphil> half of these pics are cloud lol
[09:10] <cuddykid> but you can still see quite a few bits!!
[09:10] <cuddykid> like that massive lake
[09:10] <fsphil> glad I got that yea!
[09:10] <fsphil> was hoping to see the scottish or english coast, but it was just a bit too cloudy that direction
[09:10] <cuddykid> yeah

[09:15] <fsphil> There's a box near the save button
[09:15] <fsphil> not sure you can add them after the fact
[09:16] <UpuMobile> ok thx
[09:17] <griffonbot> @AnthonyStirk: @adamcudworth Good luck with the launch today #ukhas #habe1 [http://twitter.com/AnthonyStirk/status/87087514078289920]
[09:18] <UpuMobile> did you online dlfldigi fsphil ? not on the map
[09:18] <UpuMobile> its ok if you didn't just check its all working before I have to shoot
[09:18] <fsphil> hehe, I can make out the shops next to my house here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/fsphil/5892628518/in/set-72157626013096240
[09:19] <fsphil> it's online UpuMobile, should be there by now - I'll restart dl-fldigi
[09:20] <fsphil> there it is
[09:20] <Darkside> fsphil: i need to get a copy of that :-)
[09:20] <UpuMobile> ah yes
[09:20] <UpuMobile> I see you now :)
[09:21] <fsphil> wow, big noise there
[09:21] <fsphil> sounds like a tornado
[09:21] <SamSilver_> fsphil: do you see the bands of clouds off the coast look like waves?
[09:21] <fsphil> (on 434.075)
[09:21] <fsphil> I was wondering about that SamSilver -- the previous shot shows them better
[09:21] <SamSilver_> fsphil: bottom left
[09:21] <SamSilver_> linky
[09:22] <SamSilver_> like lenticlure clouds
[09:22] <SamSilver_> mountain wave bounce
[09:22] <UpuMobile> without nb on you get S3-S5 noise
[09:22] <UpuMobile> great pic btw
[09:22] <fsphil> SamSilver, take that back the previous shot isn't better
[09:23] <SamSilver_> you can see the shadow of then on the sea
[09:23] <fsphil> there are no big mountains near the lake
[09:24] <SamSilver_> I was meaning more the effect
[09:24] <fsphil> interesting, a few minutes before they where not there: http://www.flickr.com/photos/fsphil/5892624970/in/set-72157626013096240/
[09:25] <SamSilver_> they also close to the sea looks like only 1 or 2 hundred feet
[09:25] <SamSilver_> hmmmmm...
[09:26] <SamSilver_> most likely cause then is ...
[09:26] <SamSilver_> UFO back blast interacting with wake turbelance
[09:26] <SamSilver_> ;-0
[09:27] <fsphil> oooh guys,... lens flare or the crescent moon? http://www.flickr.com/photos/fsphil/5892630420/in/set-72157626013096240/
[09:27] <fsphil> top left
[09:28] <UpuMobile> I vote UFO
[09:28] <SamSilver_> I see da moon
[09:28] <fsphil> pesky aliens, invading my space
[09:28] <UpuMobile> doesn't look like a lense flare
[09:28] <fsphil> must see where the moon was that day
[09:29] <cuddykid> almost forgot cable ties!! - now that wouldn't have been a wise move
[09:29] <fsphil> I forgot the payload :p
[09:29] <SamSilver_> cuddykid: there are a few of us that are not fans of cable ties for any sort of strain
[09:30] <fsphil> we stopped of at the shop to get some drinks before going to the launch site, and realised I didn't have the payload in the car
[09:30] <cuddykid> just going to use them to fix the balloon to the filler
[09:30] <cuddykid> hahahaha fsphil!!
[09:30] <cuddykid> not good
[09:31] <cuddykid> I've got a problem with the payload - the power for hotglue is here, so will have to hotglue it all together and seal then walk it to launch site (300m or so away)
[09:31] <cuddykid> fsphil, did you have a power supply for hotglue?
[09:31] <fsphil> stellarium confirms it -- the cresent moon was near the sun that day. woo :)
[09:31] <fsphil> I didn't use hotglue cuddykid, just lots of duct tape
[09:31] <cuddykid> oh right
[09:31] <cuddykid> yeah, duct tape is so good
[09:32] <SamSilver_> DUCT TAPE RULES
[09:32] <UpuMobile> yeah screw glue duct tape
[09:33] <UpuMobile> I'm going to speak to gaffertape.com to sponsor the UKHAS conference
[09:33] <UpuMobile> not even joking
[09:33] <SamSilver_> anyone remember bills saying
[09:33] <fsphil> words to live by
[09:33] <SamSilver_> I think it was " it is not real science if it does not have real duct tape"
[09:34] <fsphil> yep
[09:34] <fsphil> right, breakfast time. if I'm not back before you're away cuddykid, good luck!
[09:35] <SamSilver_> cuddykid: I told mates they could not visit today as I was busy I got the High Alti addiction
[09:37] <SamSilver_> I remember a payload being retrieved by boat and another by a swimmer in a lake / dam
[09:38] <SamSilver_> afk
[09:49] <fsphil> aah yes, Tim and his boat

[09:59] <SamSilver_> or at least a canoe
[10:00] <SamSilver_> Bugger it is only 10:00 UTC
[10:00] <fsphil> plenty of time yet :)
[10:01] <SamSilver_> I was being selfish
[10:01] <SamSilver_> I am hungry for launch now!!
[10:01] <SamSilver_> it is 12h01 local
[10:02] <SamSilver_> I was thinking an hour to go
[10:02] <cuddykid> fsphil: thanks :)
[10:02] <cuddykid> SamSilver_: haha!
[10:03] <cuddykid> will be heading down to launch site in about 30mins probably, to clear some polythene that's lying around away
[10:03] <cuddykid> just about a 300m walk from my house :)
[10:03] <SamSilver_> any bets on how far launch to landing will be in meters?
[10:03] <cuddykid> then will take the car down and set up antenna etc
[10:03] <cuddykid> hmm, I think about 10km max
[10:04] <cuddykid> latest predictions are about 5 to 6km
[10:04] <SamSilver_> acent rate?
[10:04] <SamSilver_> 5
[10:04] <cuddykid> 5m/s
[10:04] <SamSilver_> ?
[10:04] <cuddykid> yeah
[10:04] <SamSilver_> wil you be infalting in sunshine?
[10:04] <cuddykid> looks like it! :D
[10:05] <cuddykid> clear blue sky here
[10:05] <cuddykid> hopefully it will stay that way

[10:05] <cuddykid> Hi WillDuckworth
[10:05] <cuddykid> SamSilver_: yeah, will it matter much?
[10:05] <WillDuckworth> Hiya, all set for later?
[10:05] <cuddykid> yeah! I think so, are you coming?
[10:06] <WillDuckworth> i think so - just placating the other half!
[10:06] <fsphil> meh, grey clouds here :)
[10:06] <WillDuckworth> also charging radio/laptop batteries
[10:06] <cuddykid> haha, no problem, turn up whenever (after about 1:45)
[10:07] <cuddykid> nice, btw, worcester news are coming!
[10:07] <cuddykid> noo, 1st cloud seen..
[10:07] <fsphil> what time is the launch?
[10:07] <cuddykid> 2pm bst all being well
[10:07] <fsphil> ah, no rush to setup here then
[10:08] <cuddykid> nah, probably be around 3/3:30 before you'll be able to hear
[10:09] <fsphil> yea, I expect about an hour
[10:09] <fsphil> though if you're going for a quick ascent possibly sooner
[10:11] <cuddykid> possibly :)
[10:12] <cuddykid> the bit I'm unsure about is filling and tying the balloon.. I've printed out the excellent guide on UKHAS though :)
[10:13] <cuddykid> right, heading off to launch site, will report back in a bit
[10:14] <fsphil> just don't let go!

[10:38] <cuddykid> back :)
[10:39] <cuddykid> cleared launch site - almost perfect conditions - nice and warm too!
[10:40] <cuddykid> think twitter will be best bet for keeping in touch - not sure how well tethering will work due to gprs
[10:40] <WillDuckworth> just trying to re-run the predictor for you... taking a bit of time
[10:41] <cuddykid> cheers
[10:41] <fsphil> Anyone with access to the server update the live prediction?

[10:50] <cuddykid> going to forget the hot glue and stick with duct tape
[10:51] <cuddykid> that way I don't have to ferry the payload to the launch site separately later
[10:54] <SamSilver_> 300m dash will cool glue down
[10:54] <SpeedEvil> You can use hot glue very well with a lighter and a gluestick
[10:54] <SpeedEvil> It's really handy
[10:55] <SamSilver_> remember thatb that the temp of the gas in the balloon will efect it's rate of rise / it's density
[10:56] <cuddykid> SamSilver_: does that mean I should put more in than required?
[10:56] <SpeedEvil> You mean for a hot ass balloon?
[10:56] <SpeedEvil> gas
[10:56] <cuddykid> Speedevil: neat
[10:56] <cuddykid> yeah speedevil
[10:57] <SpeedEvil> Oh - you're trying one?
[10:57] <cuddykid> no, SamSilver was just saying about the gas inside heating up due to temp today
[10:57] <cuddykid> was wondering if I needed to overfill or underfill or just the same
[10:58] <cuddykid> WillDuckworth: do you have latest prediction link?

[11:01] <SamSilver_> temp
[11:02] <SamSilver_> the H is going from a liquid state at about -245 to local amient temp
[11:03] <SamSilver_> the gas in the balloon is cold it has just come from a liquide stae

[11:03] <WillDuckworth> re-used yours
[11:03] <WillDuckworth> looks ok
[11:03] <WillDuckworth> might try and find a pub with good reception whilst it's doing its stuff
[11:03] <WillDuckworth> ;)
[11:04] <SamSilver_> I vote WillDuckworth
[11:08] <cuddykid> oh dear - doesn't look brilliant landing near droitwich :S
[11:09] <cuddykid> gosh the prediction has changed quite a bit
[11:09] <SamSilver_> cuddykid: you aqre on a roller-coaster of emotions at the mo
[11:09] <cuddykid> yeah lol
[11:09] <cuddykid> this is not good
[11:09] <SamSilver_> the day is only going to get more hectic
[11:09] <cuddykid> needs to drift more east than west
[11:10] <SamSilver_> adjust lift
[11:10] <cuddykid> right - might need to put a little more helium in
[11:10] <cuddykid> yeah
[11:12] <cuddykid> right, definately needs to be ascent of 5 or greater

[11:28] <SamSilver_> what is the result if you launched now??
[11:29] <SpeedEvil> cuddykid: Also - vary the launch point by 1km nsew.
[11:29] <SpeedEvil> If this results in the landing point moving bby about a kilometer - you're probably in a 'stable' part of the forecast.
[11:29] <SpeedEvil> If it moves 10km, then you're not
[11:30] <SamSilver_> well done SpeedEvil
[11:33] <SamSilver_> afk
[11:35] <fsphil> also the biggest variable is the burst altitude
[11:36] <cuddykid> will have a play around :)
[11:37] <cuddykid> looks to be stable part
[11:39] <cuddykid> ahh, that's interesting, looks like a higher altitude will drop it away from droitwich
[11:39] <cuddykid> http://habhub.org/predict/#!/uuid=21955c742f1b62d989c12f66f298f12c4ecbccc7
[11:40] <cuddykid> yeah, want a slower ascent rate.. time to quickly change water weight!
[11:44] <cuddykid> SpeedEvil, fsphil: I'm unsure exactly how to measure the neck lift when using my pipe filler as I'm not sure exactly how to weigh the pipe filler as some will be supported by ground
[11:45] <fsphil> weigh the pipe filler, water bottle and cord separately?
[11:46] <cuddykid> done, that, but the pipe filler has hosepipe attached and that will lie on the ground so will affect the weigh of pip fiiller
[11:46] RocketBoy (~steverand@217.47.75.8) joined #highaltitude.
[11:46] <cuddykid> should I just weight the pipe filler as it would be attached to balloon? (so some on the ground)
[11:47] <RocketBoy> yes
[11:47] <cuddykid> cheers
[11:47] <cuddykid> RocketBoy: going for a much slower ascent now that winds have changed quite significantly
[11:47] GeekShadow (~Antoine@reactos/tester/GeekShadow) joined #highaltitude.
[11:48] <RocketBoy> doubt that makes any noticable difference to the ascent rate
[11:49] <cuddykid> going for neck lift of about 1600g for 950g payload rather than 2200g neck lift
[11:50] <cuddykid> ok, panic over, I think it's back under control!
[11:50] <RocketBoy> sorry - I c -u r going for a slower ascent rate due to a change of wind
[11:50] <cuddykid> yeah RocketBoy
[11:51] <cuddykid> otherwise it looks to be landed near a town
[11:51] <RocketBoy> whats the balloon (i forget)
[11:51] <cuddykid> (v near)
[11:51] <cuddykid> habe1 and it's a hwoyee 1000G

[12:11] <UpuMobile> who has a wedding at 3pm zzz
[12:11] <fsphil> lol
[12:11] <UpuMobile> bored :)
[12:11] <NigeyS> ill refrain from saying anything related to verticals for now ;)
[12:11] <fsphil> are they at least getting a nice day?
[12:11] <UpuMobile> yeah its lovely here
[12:11] <fsphil> sweet
[12:11] <DanielRichman> does anyone know which checksum format cuddykid's using?
[12:12] <NigeyS> not i
[12:12] <DanielRichman> ahh, looks like xor
[12:12] <DanielRichman> cools
[12:12] <fsphil> 8-bit
[12:13] <NigeyS> fsphil, how can i scare off these little birds from the garden ?
[12:13] <fsphil> Morris Dancing?
[12:14] <NigeyS> lol, theyre babies, and they keep coming back, so the cats eating / killing them :(
[12:14] <fsphil> do you really want to? birds are pretty nice to have around -- most of the time
[12:14] <fsphil> aah
[12:14] <NigeyS> they seem to like eating the grass .. or something thats in the soil underneath :|
[12:14] <fsphil> not much you can do, the young birds don't have much of a sense of danger
[12:15] <fsphil> something noisy maybe

[12:15] <NigeyS> bloody eck lol
[12:15] <SpeedEvil> you'd need a couple of servos too though.
[12:15] <fsphil> LOL
[12:15] <fsphil> lasers, is there anything they can't do?
[12:16] <NigeyS> fusion
[12:16] <NigeyS> :p
[12:16] <fsphil> meh, they're not doing it right :)
[12:16] <NigeyS> haha yeah yeah
[12:17] <fsphil> time to face the spiders in the attic
[12:17] <NigeyS> i just found a huge 1 inside the lawnmower, think its dead now though, and in lots of bits!
[12:18] <SpeedEvil> I am considering buying 6W of solid state lasers, to try laser soldering.
[12:19] <NigeyS> that sounds cool!

[12:31] <SpeedEvil> At highest altitude, the signal has been recieved 500km away
[12:31] <FutFutFut> lol, yep just remembered that I could hear (not decipher) James' payload when over the North Sea
[12:32] <UpuMobile> ooh yeah should be able too
[12:32] <Laurenceb_> launch in 30mins?
[12:32] <UpuMobile> I'm in Cambridge atm :)
[12:32] <FutFutFut> So on the spacenear.us site
[12:32] <FutFutFut> are each aerial mast a receiver?
[12:33] <UpuMobile> yes

[14:06] <FutFutFut> good signal here in Cambridge, but having problems configuring the software
[14:06] <fsphil> shift is 615hz
[14:06] <FutFutFut> not changed anything from last payload tracked, but can't seem to find how to select the new payload
[14:06] <G3VZV> its good in Bedfordshire:)
[14:07] <fsphil> are you running in HAB mode FutFutFut? should be a drop-down list on the top left

[14:08] <fsphil> no signal in cookstown yet
[14:08] <FutFutFut> when i click autoconfigure, should the text boxes populate with anything?

[14:08] <fsphil> wait
[14:08] <fsphil> they're not working
[14:09] <FutFutFut> hmm the lines to the left and right of the centre line are way further apart than the lines i'm receiving
[14:10] <fsphil> you need to change the shift to 615hz
[14:10] <fsphil> in Configure -> Modems -> RTTY
[14:10] <fsphil> select Custom Shift
[14:10] <fsphil> and use the slider thingy below it to change it

[14:18] <fsphil> even so
[14:18] <fsphil> indoors?

[14:19] <NigeyS> oo if i hold the radio higher at arms length its s5+
[14:22] <fsphil> excellent
[14:23] <fsphil> upu's radio isn't even registering it on the S meter

[14:28] <fsphil> this lawn mower is making a pretty good mess of 70cm though
[14:29] <SpeedEvil> ah
[14:29] <fsphil> shift has decreased, now about 600hz exactly
[14:30] <FutFutFut> my location fixed thanks :)

[15:36] <Lunar_Lander> mixio the mail tracking says "The letter has been brought into the post office"
[15:36] <NigeyS> god knows, fdigi didnt update my new co-ordinates :( lol
[15:36] <Lunar_Lander> jcoxon is that the China problem?
[15:36] <jcoxon> NigeyS, restart it
[15:36] <Lunar_Lander> with the 90° different longitude
[15:36] <jcoxon> nah
[15:36] <NigeyS> i have 3 times :S
[15:36] <jcoxon> have you really changed it
[15:37] <Lunar_Lander> mixio the last time I sent a letter to Latvia, it said "The letter has left our Frankfurt logistics center to Latvia."
[15:37] <Lunar_Lander> I expected that it would say something like that now

[15:46] <jcoxon> cuddykid, the key will be the burst alt
[15:46] <Lunar_Lander> OHH M5 landing
[15:46] <fsphil> since the prediction is quite near, I'd wait until burst
[15:47] <cuddykid> yeah, going to wait for a bit :)
[15:47] <gm8oti> gm4jtj thanks - still not a sausage here, and it's not the antenna, the Angus beacon is fine
[15:47] <cuddykid> target alt is 33000m
[15:47] <jcoxon> quite a slow ascent rate
[15:47] <jcoxon> so i expect about 33000m
[15:47] <Lunar_Lander> yeah
[15:47] <Lunar_Lander> jcoxon did you see the videos?
[15:47] <cuddykid> jcoxon, yeah, last minute adjustment due to predictions
[15:47] <WillDuckworth> the handheld whip aerial isn't quite good enough here now

[16:24] <fsphil> lol
[16:25] <fsphil> the absolute record is 60km by a japanese balloon
[16:25] <Lunar_Lander> xD yeah
[16:25] <FutFutFut> 5th uk record?
[16:25] <fsphil> mattltm, http://ukhas.org.uk/general:uk_records
[16:25] <SpeedEvil> :)
[16:26] <FutFutFut> 3rd place now
[16:26] <fsphil> they're currently third on the UK records
[16:26] <FutFutFut> just a bit higher
[16:26] <fsphil> poor rob
[16:26] <NigeyS> 35.2
[16:26] <gm8oti> Speedevil no complete ones yet - it takes a few characters to pick up, the packet number is mostly right, but the heights are mostly garbled. Odd.
[16:26] <fsphil> his record was beaten twice in two weeks :)
[16:26] <G3VZV> it must be getting warm up there the freq is going back down now!
[16:27] <SpeedEvil> Heading there!
[16:27] <mattltm> That old page needs to be removed :)
[16:27] <FutFutFut> 2nd place
[16:27] <fsphil> wow
[16:27] <FutFutFut> WOW
[16:27] <SpeedEvil> :)
[16:27] <RocketBoy> seems to be doing the slowing ascent rate thing
[16:27] <jcoxon> hey
[16:28] <SpeedEvil> A fair way to get till the next one though :)
[16:28] <SpeedEvil> RocketBoy: yeah - it does
[16:28] <FutFutFut> only 820m to go
[16:28] <NigeyS> 35.4
[16:28] <fsphil> weird that
[16:28] <hibby> is the tracker auto predicting these days too?
[16:28] <RocketBoy> cuddykid - got your monies worth there cuddykid
[16:28] <FutFutFut> i take it slow is better? slow increase in presure
[16:28] <SpeedEvil> As the elastic limit of the balloon is reached, it starts compressing the gas inside more
[16:28] <jcoxon> hibby, if warned in advance yes
[16:28] <SpeedEvil> Until the strain limit of the balloon is reached, and it bursts.
[16:29] <NigeyS> 35.52 .. i really dont wanna eat this whip ya know! lol
[16:29] <FutFutFut> 684m to go. fingers crossed
[16:29] <hibby> jcoxon: cool stuff. was trying to work out what the target was.
[16:29] <fsphil> muihahaha NigeyS
[16:29] <Lunar_Lander> the burst symbol disappeared at about 33 km
[16:29] <jcoxon> Lunar_Lander, yeah well it was working on a 33 burst
[16:29] <fsphil> signal fading
[16:29] <jcoxon> no use me changing it
[16:29] <Lunar_Lander> oh ok
[16:29] <Lunar_Lander> yeah
[16:30] <fsphil> very weak in Upu's place
[16:30] <fsphil> really strong here
[16:30] <fsphil> weird
[16:30] <jcoxon> fsphil, some sort of null on the antenna
[16:30] <NigeyS> 35313
[16:30] <fsphil> yea that's likely, they're both colinears

[16:31] <FutFutFut> cuddykid: your first launch?
[16:31] <cuddykid> can't believe it
[16:31] <cuddykid> yeah
[16:31] <fsphil> you're 2nd place on the uk records
[16:31] <NigeyS> 35.7 .... lol
[16:31] <SpeedEvil> Prediction is still looking good!
[16:31] <cuddykid> i am 1/2 way to droitwich!
[16:31] Action: NigeyS gets the strawberry sauce
[16:31] <fsphil> mmm strawberry and antenna
[16:31] <cuddykid> will go back after burst
[16:32] <fsphil> if it bursts
[16:32] <SpeedEvil> Currently the prediction is right in the middle of a large tree. :)
[16:32] <fsphil> don't mention the T word!
[16:32] <SanSilver> lol
[16:32] <cuddykid> lol
[16:32] <NigeyS> 35823
[16:32] <fsphil> burst!
[16:32] <cuddykid> what's the record?
[16:32] <FutFutFut> 383m to go. very exciting this
[16:32] <FutFutFut> 36206
[16:32] <SpeedEvil> (but predictions are worthless at this alt)
[16:32] <fsphil> signals all over the place
[16:32] <NigeyS> burst
[16:32] <fsphil> she's coming down

[16:33] <fsphil> bah NigeyS
[16:33] <FutFutFut> burst
[16:33] <hibby> what we need is a bot that updates altitude/etc from the tracker
[16:33] <cuddykid> nice!
[16:33] <SanSilver> I zoomed in on Droitwich it seems to have a big puddle on it's doorstep!

[16:33] <G3VZV> look at the doppler:)
[16:33] <SpeedEvil> What's the fastest descent?
[16:33] <FutFutFut> got to 35824m
[16:33] <SpeedEvil> 65m/s isn't bad
[16:33] <Laurenceb_> wow new uk 1st and 2nd record in a week or so
[16:34] <fsphil> very impressive
[16:34] <FutFutFut> must be the nice weather for a change
[16:34] <NigeyS> excellent stuff
[16:34] <SpeedEvil> Shows how damn thin the air is up there.
[16:34] <Lunar_Lander> the second highest UK flight to date
[16:34] <Lunar_Lander> :)
[16:34] <Laurenceb_> the superpressure effect is quite visible
[16:34] <Lunar_Lander> It's coming home
[16:34] <Laurenceb_> on the altitude graph
[16:35] <Lunar_Lander> that it slowed down?
[16:35] <SpeedEvil> Yes
[16:35] <SpeedEvil> It looks like superpressure happens _right_ before burst
[16:35] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[16:35] <SpeedEvil> Significant superpressure.
[16:35] <Lunar_Lander> it would be cool to measure it directly
[16:35] <SpeedEvil> GEtting it to that point intentionally will be hard.
[16:35] <fsphil> prediction looks good
[16:35] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[16:35] <SpeedEvil> Without a valve and a pressure senso
[16:35] <SpeedEvil> r
[16:36] <Lunar_Lander> yeah
[16:36] <Lunar_Lander> fsphil it dropped 10 km in 2 minutes or so
[16:36] <SpeedEvil> Nice leisurely walk to the landing point?
[16:36] <NigeyS> lol
[16:36] <NigeyS> bbs
[16:36] <Lunar_Lander> not really
[16:37] <Lunar_Lander> some 7 km right now
[16:37] <SpeedEvil> yeah - it's not _quite_ that close.
[16:37] <SpeedEvil> Have to jog.

[16:46] <SpeedEvil> Find a nice pub, and have a drinky.
[16:47] <SanSilver> or at least a glass of bitters
[16:47] <cuddykid> fantastic launch :)

[16:54] <jgrahamc> Fantastic for a first flight over 35km!
[16:54] <SpeedEvil> Does the predictor use the programmed or the current rate of decesnt?

[19:52] <Lunar_Lander> RocketBoy ?
[19:52] <RocketBoy> BB shortly
[19:53] <Lunar_Lander> ok
[19:54] <cuddykid> camera is no longer blurred
[19:55] <cuddykid> when I found the camera it was freezing and had dew all over it
[19:55] <SpeedEvil> :)
[19:56] <SpeedEvil> Congrats!
[19:56] <SpeedEvil> argh
[19:56] <cuddykid> cheers SpeedEvil, however no photos!
[19:56] <SpeedEvil> 0 photos - after analysing the card?
[19:56] <cuddykid> yeah
[19:56] <SpeedEvil> I mean on a PC?
[19:56] <cuddykid> still not sure what happened
[19:56] <cuddykid> yeah
[19:56] <SpeedEvil> Tried 'photo rescue' tools?
[19:57] <SpeedEvil> copy an image of the SD first
[19:57] <cuddykid> 3.94gb still left :(
[19:57] <SpeedEvil> I was wondering if it's screwed up the FAT or something
[19:57] <cuddykid> hmm.. on mac?
[19:57] <SpeedEvil> most SDs will be formatted as vgat
[19:57] <SpeedEvil> vfat
[19:57] <SpeedEvil> For cameras.

[20:01] <SpeedEvil> cuddykid: I mean it sound s overwhelmingly likely that it's been saving pics if it was making shitter noises. But it's possible it may not have updated the filesystem tables and directory entries as it crashed at altitude
[20:01] <SpeedEvil> Due to temp
[20:02] <cuddykid> possibly, however running the script now, it just shuts down after a certain point in the script..
[20:02] <Lunar_Lander> RocketBoy yeah :)
[20:02] <Lunar_Lander> LOOL the typo there SpeedEvil
[20:03] <cuddykid> I changed the time delay this morning from about wait for 15 mins to wait for ~17mins
[20:03] <cuddykid> bet there's a bug somewhere
[20:03] <cuddykid> camera shuts down after startup routine (before taking photos)
[20:03] <SpeedEvil> Don't write to the card! Try another one if you want to experiment - as you may be able to rescue saved images
[20:03] <SpeedEvil> If there are any of course.
[20:04] <cuddykid> ok :)
[20:04] <RocketBoy> BBL
[20:05] <cuddykid> running recovery program now
[20:05] <cuddykid> formatted FAT32 by the looks of it
[20:07] <cuddykid> SpeedEvil: is there a way to save the kml file permanently?
[20:10] <SpeedEvil> No idea, sorry
[20:11] <SpeedEvil> kml from what?
[20:12] <Lunar_Lander> spacenear.us?
[20:13] <cuddykid> yeah, I've downloaded it but wondering whether the track will change when another payload comes online
[20:16] <cuddykid> payload still in tact though
[20:17] <SpeedEvil> ah
[20:17] <SpeedEvil> yes, it will
[20:18] <SpeedEvil> Read the file
[20:18] <SpeedEvil> you will see a URL - specifically

[21:05] <Laurenceb_> hmm this is interesting - more pitot experiments
[21:05] <Laurenceb_> if i turn down the pga gain the noise decreases, but not by much at the high gain settings
[21:05] <Laurenceb_> at 1x gain im seeing ~1lsb noise
[21:06] <Laurenceb_> its looking like inductively coupled noise into the pressure sensor thats leaking through the band pass filter on the adc
[21:09] <Laurenceb_> probably seeing gain saturation at the high frequencies the noise leaks it at

[21:35] <Laurenceb_> guess this is a fundamental issue with delta sigma adcs - they pick up really high frequency noise quite easily
[21:35] <SpeedEvil> I'd have thought unless you were unlucky, the correlation should pull that out
[21:36] <Laurenceb_> well its delta sigma + switched cap filter
[21:37] <Laurenceb_> from the datasheet it seems to alias down frequencies at integer multiples of 15KHz
[21:38] <SpeedEvil> hmm
[21:38] <Laurenceb_> with a quick inductive pickup probe i made for my scope, i see ~2mv rms over serveral mhz bandwidth around the sensor
[21:38] <SpeedEvil> Huge, I guess
[21:38] <Laurenceb_> easily enough to give 10uv noise
[21:38] <Laurenceb_> if you let through 15hz every 15khz
[21:39] <Laurenceb_> - factor sqrt(1000) reduction for white noise
[21:39] <Laurenceb_> its the stm32 chucking out all the noise
[21:39] <Laurenceb_> well most of it
[21:40] <Laurenceb_> i didnt rtfm :P never spotted the aliasing graphs in the datasheet
[21:42] <SpeedEvil> More bypassing of the stm?
[21:42] <SpeedEvil> To reduce circulating currents?
[21:42] <Laurenceb_> the proper way to do thise would be a sealed metla package for the pressure
[21:43] <Laurenceb_> its not possible really to avoid the inductive effects
[21:43] <SpeedEvil> I guess most people really don't care about c ouple of pascals of noise
[21:43] <Laurenceb_> the caps are right up to the package, so its just the size of the package

[21:49] <SpeedEvil> Especially with many sensors
[21:50] <SpeedEvil> I still want to know if my idea for silencing will work
[21:50] <SpeedEvil> Take a massive evacuated cavern, Drop salt from the top so that the cavern is filled with about 30% salt, and then explode a bomb in the middle
[21:51] <SpeedEvil> The latent heat of the salt vapourising and then the three/four phase flow will efficiently slow the shock.
[21:51] <Laurenceb_> give kim jung il a ring and try
[21:53] <SpeedEvil> :)
[21:53] <Laurenceb_> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vela_Incident
[21:55] <SpeedEvil> Also - if you put styrofoam round the bomb, with a size sufficient to contain the initial fireball, yuou only get a single flash
