[10:31] <NigeyS> morning james
[10:34] <jcoxon> morning
[10:34] <NigeyS> i didnt hear back from Bill before i left about the payload recovery :/
[10:35] <jcoxon> eek
[10:36] <NigeyS> Bill seemed convinved it would land on the roadway and not a pylon though
[10:36] <jcoxon> Payloads were recovered from a canal in Buttonwillow Park just west of the hydrogen energy plant....guessing that it floated down the canal for awhile.
[10:37] <NigeyS> ahh
[10:37] <NigeyS> better than being fried on a pylon i guess
[10:37] <rjharrison> Opps sounds bad
[10:37] <jcoxon> oh yes
[10:38] <jcoxon> well it can't of got tangled
[10:38] <rjharrison> water proof?
[10:38] <jcoxon> so thats key
[10:38] <NigeyS> hope so :|
[10:38] <fsphil> makes a change from a tree
[10:38] <NigeyS> lol
[10:38] <NigeyS> a pretty unlucky spot to land mind
[10:42] <jcoxon> depending on weather - might launch picoatlasIII in a week or so
[10:42] <fsphil> coolcomponents seems to have less stuff each time I visit
[10:42] <fsphil> yay
[10:42] <NigeyS> what freq is ure ntx2 james ?
[10:43] <jcoxon> 0.75
[10:43] <jcoxon> .075 sorry
[10:43] <NigeyS> oo mines .650 could try and get them both up on sunday ...
[10:43] <jcoxon> nah i'm on call on sunday
[10:43] <NigeyS> ach dam :(
[10:43] <mattltm> fsphil: and earthshine too :(
[10:44] <NigeyS> jcoxon, how does that on call thing work, you just stay at home and go if ure called ?
[10:44] <jcoxon> no i'll be in hospital for it
[10:44] <jcoxon> 12hr shifts
[10:44] <NigeyS> ah got ya
[10:44] <jcoxon> i'm on weekend days
[10:44] <NigeyS> 12 hrs :|
[10:45] <NigeyS> you must do like.. 60 hours a week?
[10:46] <jcoxon> well
[10:46] <jcoxon> not officiallly
[10:46] <jcoxon> its meant to balance out
[10:46] <NigeyS> oh i see
[10:47] <fsphil> the guy I sold the radio too was an on-call paramedic, worked some silly hours
[10:47] <jcoxon> yeah they do
[10:49] <fsphil> what weight have you got the total payload down too jcoxon?
[10:51] <Upu> I'm launching on Sunday weather/notam permitting NigeyS
[10:51] <NigeyS> if its anything less than 50g im renaming picochu to fattychu!
[10:51] <mattltm> lol
[10:51] <jcoxon> fsphil, well depends on the solar panel
[10:51] <NigeyS> nice 1 Upu ! morning / afternoon ?
[10:51] <jcoxon> smallest i can get it is 30g
[10:51] <Upu> morning
[10:51] <Upu> want a piggy back ?
[10:51] <NigeyS> great, be nice to see that pink beauty in the air!
[10:51] <Upu> yeah it is about time
[10:51] <fsphil> you could probably see it from where you are NigeyS
[10:52] <Upu> I'm on 434.075
[10:52] <NigeyS> lol
[10:52] <NigeyS> sounds good, ill know by thursday what time / where the launch is and let you know
[10:52] <rjharrison> jcoxon, can we launch without NOTAMS if balloon is within constraints?
[10:52] <jcoxon> in theory
[10:52] <rjharrison> ah!
[10:52] <jcoxon> not larger then 2m in all directions at all points of the flight
[10:53] <rjharrison> Have we tried that on DM @ CAA
[10:53] <jcoxon> well thats what is laid down in the rules
[10:54] <rjharrison> Yeah
[10:54] <rjharrison> I'm making some test flights for the common errors page
[10:54] <Upu> cool thanks
[10:54] <rjharrison> A flight around 0,0
[10:55] <Upu> Steve said he'd do a talk on how to use his linux stuff at the conference as well
[10:55] <jcoxon> rjharrison, it hasnt been run past DM, the times i've launched have been from Chu
[10:55] <rjharrison> Cool
[10:55] <mattltm> Im very impresed with this Venus gps module :)
[10:56] <rjharrison> Wasn't questioning really I didn't know we had launched any
[10:56] <mattltm> New firmware with cocom removed works nice :)
[10:56] <rjharrison> Any good alts
[10:56] <mattltm> 20hz update rate anyone?
[10:56] <fsphil> have you tested it mattltm?
[10:57] <NigeyS> rjharrison, you think i should hold off until we asked the caa about the 2m limit then ? :|
[10:57] <NigeyS> my understanding was that it was ok under 2m
[10:57] <rjharrison> Hey I'm not planning asking anything
[10:57] <mattltm> just updated the firmware that was sent to me by SkyTrak. Very helpful guys and have confirmed that it will be ok to any altitude.
[10:58] <mattltm> Still would like to send one up though.
[10:58] <NigeyS> lol oki, fair enough :D
[10:58] <jcoxon> NigeyS, you're within the rules - asking would probably just cause confusion
[10:58] <mattltm> When are you launching fsphil and I can get a complete payload over to you
[10:58] <rjharrison> Read the rules, follow the rules (ish) and wait for them to come back to you. Thats a rule for life
[10:58] <NigeyS> good points
[10:59] <jcoxon> you are keeping it sensible
[10:59] <jcoxon> mimimal payload
[10:59] <jcoxon> the balloons weigh more then the payloads!
[10:59] <NigeyS> i'll be sticking to 4 balloons anyway, i certainly wont launch 5
[10:59] <NigeyS> jcoxon, yup, im down to 78gms now
[10:59] <fsphil> mattltm, requesting a notam for September
[10:59] <fsphil> though I've probably left it a bit late knowing D.M.
[11:00] <jcoxon> NigeyS, what battery size?
[11:00] <NigeyS> 1000mah
[11:00] <jcoxon> not bad!
[11:01] <NigeyS> plenty of power there, i tested alot, 4 hours constant xmitting was .21v
[11:01] <NigeyS> so if by some weird offchance it goes drifiting / floating itll have power for at least 18 hours
[11:01] <jcoxon> not bad
[11:01] <jcoxon> it gets really hard to get the weight down
[11:02] <rjharrison> Anyone mind if I run a test on the tracker
[11:02] <NigeyS> it does, then you have to balance it with the power you need, knightmare
[11:02] <jcoxon> NigeyS, tell me about it
[11:02] <jcoxon> i can get about 10hrs with my 40g setup
[11:02] <jcoxon> relying on daylight
[11:03] <NigeyS> thats fairly impressive mind
[11:03] <jcoxon> yeah
[11:03] <NigeyS> although as ure under 50g maybe you should be a nano class payload? :p
[11:03] <jcoxon> hehe
[11:03] <jcoxon> though i'm not sure if my lipo charger is working properly
[11:03] <fsphil> even with the limited life, you know it's going to come back to life though
[11:03] <jcoxon> needs more investigation
[11:03] <jcoxon> yeah i've tested that
[11:03] <NigeyS> with a diff gps, and smaller board, i might have gotten this down to 60ish
[11:03] Action: SpeedEvil has solar cells in the kitchen that do 1A/g (@0.5V)
[11:03] <jcoxon> it'll powerup in the morning
[11:04] <SpeedEvil> They are very fragile though.
[11:04] <jcoxon> right bbl

[11:07] <fsphil> lol, will do
[11:07] <fsphil> your own working fine?
[11:07] <NigeyS> yup, seems to be fine now, user error probably, me and matt tested it and all was well
[11:08] <NigeyS> just dont think that pole in the garden is quite high enough
[11:08] <fsphil> yea - I can't receive any hab flights even in the attic - only from the big pole on the roof
[11:08] <fsphil> infact on 70cm I can only hear a single repeater
[11:08] <NigeyS> weird aint it, yet in 1 spot in this room, i can recieve the habs with just the whip!
[11:09] <fsphil> indeed
[11:09] <fsphil> I noticed the 70cm repeater I can hear is very near a 2m repeater, that I can't hear - I'd have expected it the other way around
[11:09] <NigeyS> but yet in the same room, i barely get a gps signal
[11:10] <fsphil> Radio is proper black magic ;)
[11:10] <NigeyS> yeah thats odd, shouldnt the 2m saturate the 70cm? :|
[11:10] <fsphil> it's possible the 2m repeater is lower down
[11:11] <NigeyS> oh of course
[11:11] <fsphil> I'm heading out that way to talk about habs, so I might ask
[11:11] <NigeyS> yeah pls do, thats kinda pickling!
[11:12] <fsphil> that is, if I remember after the panic of talking in front of an audience
[11:13] <fsphil> yay, proto-pic have uart cameras!
[11:13] <NigeyS> lol u'll be fine dude

[11:21] <rjharrison> Upu, I have created a 6 circular flight around 0,0 by one degree with an elvation of 0 to 1000000m. The thinking is that this should be a good test of most errors

[11:22] <Randomskk> rjharrison: that's a really good idea
[11:22] <Randomskk> what's the flight duration?
[11:23] <Randomskk> theoretically errors should come up almost right away so it seems that just having one or two sentences for each quadrant around (0,0) would do?
[11:23] <daveake> It is. I was asking for just such a thing a while back for my project
[11:23] <daveake> Should have created one myself p)
[11:24] <rjharrison> hehe 6 hours
[11:25] <rjharrison> It's a battery check too
[11:25] <rjharrison> Is now anyway :-)
[11:25] <NigeyS> lol
[11:26] <rjharrison> http://spacenear.us/tracker/
[11:26] <mattltm> For anyone thats interested, this Venus chip is rock solid. 11 sats locked, DGPS fix all from a patch antenna sitting inside near the window.
[11:27] <mattltm> Position and alt have not changed for over 30 mins now.
[11:27] <rjharrison> It is also a good check of the leading zero issues
[11:27] <rjharrison> eg $$icarus,13,10:57:43,0.003781,0.999993,74,116.49,359.8,0.0,26.4*B87F

[11:27] <Upu> where did you get your black power btw ?
[11:28] <fsphil> rjharrison, does black magic?
[11:29] <fsphil> mattltm, I've the old venus here - I might fly it as a comparison

[11:33] <SpeedEvil> mattltm: Also - check it's not falsely static
[11:33] <SpeedEvil> A lot of GPSs will 'stick' in one position intentionally to give a false impression
[11:34] <mattltm> SpeedEvil: whats the best way to check?
[11:34] <NigeyS> run round the house
[11:34] <SpeedEvil> If it's sticking within +-1m for an hour, it basically is lying
[11:35] <rjharrison> black power?

[11:35] <rjharrison> Powder :-)
[11:35] <rjharrison> Smokeless actually
[11:35] <SpeedEvil> move it slowly one minimum increment
[11:35] <rjharrison> I have .5 kg do you want some
[11:35] <rjharrison> I'm going to be making some pyros

[11:36] <Upu> well I could do with a few pyros but I want to try make an "emergency" parachute system so I could do with a little for that as well
[11:37] <Upu> If i could nab some that owuld be great, no urgency will be after this flight
[11:37] <Upu> I suspect Hwoyee and cut down are going to become synonimous soon
[11:38] <Upu> I started amending the code last night so it knows what the vertical rate of ascent is
[11:40] <rjharrison> Just subtract the prev alt from the current
[11:40] <rjharrison> You might want to do that for a few cycles to make sure
[11:42] <Upu> yeah 5 min rolling average should do it
[11:43] <Upu> that should detect a float condition too
[11:43] <rjharrison> Liek most things it's not trivial
[11:43] <Upu> ok afk getting some food
[11:43] <WillDuckworth> hey Upu, do you have the iphone app, or any screenshots of it?
[11:43] <rjharrison> You ideally want to cutdown as soon as it strats to fall
[11:43] <rjharrison> but you want to make sure that it is falling
[11:44] <fsphil> WillDuckworth, your sstv will it be FM modulated?
[11:44] <rjharrison> The good news is that we have never has a GPS alt go in the wrign direction of real travel
[11:44] <Upu> WillDuckworth http://ava.upuaut.net/?p=83
[11:44] <rjharrison> Ie no dodgy drop in alt on the way up
[11:44] <Upu> cut down from burst should be done via accelerometers
[11:45] <Upu> cut down from float can be done by average ascent rate I think
[11:45] <Upu> I need to test it
[11:45] <fsphil> uplink might be the best option
[11:45] <Upu> ok really afk now not just pretending :)
[11:45] <mattltm> SpeedEvil Yes, it moves and updates.
[11:47] <WillDuckworth> hi fsphil think so - still work in progress!
[11:48] <fsphil> ncie
[11:48] <fsphil> just noticed the vx7 can receive way up to 990mhz in FM

[12:46] <daveake> Upu why the comment about Hwoyee? Are they known not to shred too well?
[12:46] <daveake> I just now separated my ex-balloon from the 'chute and payload, then weighed it. 725g. So only 275g got "jettisoned"!
[12:48] <fsphil> I wonder how spread out the landing area for the bits of latex are
[12:49] <mattltm> I would take an educated guess at BIG!

[13:00] <rjharrison> daveake Upu wrote 99.9% of it
[13:01] <rjharrison> Ive just played with the simulation stuff at the end
[13:01] <daveake> Cheers Upu then :)
[13:02] <rjharrison> and fsphil looking at the history
[13:03] <fsphil> only a bit
[13:04] Action: fsphil adds an mp3 player to the list of things lost in his room
[13:05] <fsphil> I'll be writing a page on doing it all in integers
[13:07] <Upu> of my 99% fsphil wrote 50% :)
[13:08] <daveake> You'll be needing floating point soon for the credit calculations ...
[13:09] <rjharrison> Upu lol
[13:10] <Upu> daveake with regards to the Hwoyee balloons they don't seem to burst as readily
[13:10] <rjharrison> fsphil part of the testing need to be float to test the leading 0 problems
[13:11] GeekShadow (~Antoine@reactos/tester/GeekShadow) joined #highaltitude.
[13:14] <daveake> Upu - you mean they burst higher, or not so well?
[13:14] <fsphil> not at all
[13:14] <daveake> Oh. That's a bit sub-optimal
[13:15] <fsphil> the last couple floated
[13:15] <fsphil> though they where slightly underfilled iirc
[13:16] <fsphil> if that happened here it would certainly be a wet landing :)
[13:17] <daveake> :). On checking, mine was a Totex
[13:18] <daveake> fsphil - all you need is a boat-shaped payload with prop and some "drive to shore" guidance software :)
[13:18] <fsphil> already working on it ;)
[13:18] <daveake> lol
[13:19] <fsphil> or, a recovery boat - drive to the coast and have it sail out and grab onto it, drag it back to shore
[13:19] <daveake> All adds to the excitement of the recovery operation :)
[13:19] <fsphil> there've been two water recoveries so far
[13:19] <fsphil> well three counting Bill's flight this weekend
[13:20] <daveake> I saw a YT video of one recovered from a river
[13:20] <SpeedEvil> Do you count the one hanging over the water?
[13:21] <fsphil> nope
[13:21] <fsphil> that was close though
[13:21] <daveake> Question - what do people use for sending commands to a balloon, e.g. for a cutdown?
[13:22] <rjharrison> daveake its all done byt the payload
[13:22] <rjharrison> But basically it send a voltage to a pyro to fire it
[13:22] <rjharrison> Sending data to the balloon is not trivial
[13:23] <daveake> That's why I asked :-). I thought at least someone had done that.
[13:23] <fsphil> daveake, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3NrmeVZ1j8g
[13:23] <fsphil> best recovery ever :)
[13:24] <fsphil> DTMF tones seem popular - they're very simple to decode
[13:26] <daveake> fsphil - beats our little 30 mile drive!
[13:34] <fsphil> fooood

[21:49] <NigeyS> got my sums wrong, picochu is drawing to much current :(
[21:49] <rjharrison> Hey Upu I see you have got the tracker working on our site
[21:49] <rjharrison> Your
[21:49] <Upu> yeah put it there for testing our iphone tracker
[21:50] <Upu> and now the Android one it seems
[21:50] <rjharrison> I'v been trying to get it working on mysite but have problem with data.php not returning the values for the map
[21:50] <rjharrison> Did you have any issues?
[21:50] <Upu> don't think I did anything special - no issues afaik
[21:50] <rjharrison> I just get the refresing spinner constantly
[21:51] <rjharrison> However the google earth KML works fine
[21:51] <Upu> http://robertharrison.org/tracker/
[21:51] <rjharrison> yep
[21:51] <Upu> yeah I see
[21:51] <Upu> permissions ?
[21:51] <rjharrison> http://robertharrison.org/tracker/data.php works fine
[21:52] <rjharrison> I have just set 777 on the data.php but not much better
[21:54] <Upu> http://pastebin.com/K1Z7mWhm
[21:55] <rjharrison> thanks
[21:55] <Upu> dunno if that helps
[21:55] <rjharrison> it's weird why it's not working

[21:57] <rjharrison> lol
[21:57] <rjharrison> Cool
[21:57] <Upu> so do you have a file with the raw NMEA data from your test ?
[21:57] <rjharrison> not yet
[21:57] <Upu> ok
[21:57] <rjharrison> Oh yep
[21:57] <rjharrison> I put that on the doc

[21:59] <Upu> oh I see it
[21:59] <Upu> was looking at the bottom
[21:59] <rjharrison> Thought it was better up there
[21:59] <rjharrison> Perhaps the icarus stuff should go
[21:59] <rjharrison> up ot you
[22:00] <Upu> yeah your data is more complete
[22:02] <Upu> well looks like we have some reasonable testing data now
[22:02] <rjharrison> It's prettier
[22:03] <Upu> btw your icarus picture stretches lovely across desktops
[22:03] <rjharrison> lol the big one?

[22:06] <rjharrison> wow that does look good

[23:00] <landraid> hi.. i'm just getting started with arduino code and i've got a few questions
[23:00] GeekShadow (~Antoine@reactos/tester/GeekShadow) joined #highaltitude.
[23:01] <landraid> when you define a char or a byte, what's the number in the square brackets for?
[23:01] <landraid> e.g. byte something[8]
[23:01] <SpeedEvil> That's an array.
[23:01] <SpeedEvil> You have an array of bytes, called 'something' that has 8 storage elements.
[23:01] <SpeedEvil> Which are all bytes
[23:01] <landraid> ahh i see
[23:01] <SpeedEvil> So something[3]=2;
[23:02] <SpeedEvil> Sets the fourth (counted from zero) to 2
[23:02] <landraid> a byte is just 8 bits
[23:02] <SpeedEvil> yes
[23:02] <landraid> what's an example of a bit and a byte?
[23:02] <SpeedEvil> A bit is the smallest storage element.
[23:02] <SpeedEvil> It can store 1 or 0
[23:02] <SpeedEvil> a byte is made up of 8 bits, and can store 0-255
