[00:12] <nickolai> does anyone have any advice on filling with hydrogen?
[00:13] <NigeyS> dont smoke at the same time :)
[00:14] <nickolai> why not?
[00:14] <nickolai> :P
[00:14] <NigeyS> boom :p
[00:14] <nickolai> i had an interesting conversation today with someone at work - they were saying that latex balloons will leak hydrogen!
[00:15] <nickolai> i imagine hwoyee are made of latex?
[00:19] <NigeyS> yups
[00:19] <NigeyS> even the cylinders he and h2 come in leak, if you left a he cylinder for couple of years itd eventually all leak out
[00:19] <SpeedEvil> nickolai: They wont'.
[00:20] <SpeedEvil> nickolai: He leaks lots more than H
[00:20] <nickolai> i'm thinking tho, that's a huge safety concern for filling with hydrogen - one we hadn't fully considered when we used it yesterday
[00:21] <SpeedEvil> It's not.
[00:22] <SpeedEvil> The flammable volume in air is something like 4%
[00:22] <nickolai> it wouldn't propogate through the leak to the hydrogen inside the ballon?
[00:22] <SpeedEvil> If you have a couple of cubic meters of hydrogen, and a tenth of it leaks out, that's a bathroom-sized volume.
[00:22] <SpeedEvil> That's at risk.
[00:22] <SpeedEvil> If it's completely sealed.
[00:23] <nickolai> your last 2 statements are a bit confusing to me - to which statements are you referring?
[00:25] <SpeedEvil> If htere are a couple of cubic meters of hydrogen, then even if a tenth of it leaks out (it'll take a day or two to do this), then in a completely sealed bathroom, it may reach the lower limit of flammability
[00:25] <nickolai> i see
[00:26] <nickolai> not to doubt you, but do you have a source for that? i'm sure my colleague would like to see some more details

[00:33] <natrium42> :D
[00:33] <NigeyS> im kinda here
[00:33] <nickolai> hey Dan
[00:34] <NigeyS> if eagle doesnt drive me to insanity in the next few minutes
[00:34] <nickolai> thanks SpeedEvil, but what about the leakage rate of balloons? any idea where i might find info on that?
[00:35] <SpeedEvil> http://mositesrubber.com/technical/silicone-rubber.htm
[00:35] <SpeedEvil> Has some sort-of-related numbers, but they are clearly bogus.

[00:44] <nickolai> hm, interesting stuff. I guess my initial concerns were excessive
[00:44] <nickolai> then again, you can never be too cautious when dealing with this stuff
[00:45] <nickolai> when it came up earlier at work it was while the boss was showing safety videos about various things like pyrophoric substances etc.
[00:48] <Zuph> NigeyS: What eagle-ails you this evening? :-p
[00:49] <SpeedEvil> The permeability is a red-herring.
[00:49] <SpeedEvil> If it's a safety issue at all, you're doing it wrong.
[00:49] <NigeyS> trying to put what ive got so far onto a brd, it just isnt making much sense heh
[00:49] <SpeedEvil> As your filling environment should be able to cope with a burst.
[00:49] <NigeyS> lots of lines all over the place etc
[00:50] <Zuph> hehe
[00:50] <Zuph> No fixin' that.
[00:50] <NigeyS> nup, maybe some sleep will help
[00:53] <Zuph> aye

[01:00] <SpeedEvil> http://www.parker.com/literature/ORD%205700%20Parker_O-Ring_Handbook.pdf - page 74 gives for helium and natural rubber as 3*10^-7 cc per cm^2 per sec at 1 bar differential.
[01:01] <SpeedEvil> But annoyingly, does not list a figure for hydrogen.
[01:01] <SpeedEvil> IT's of the same order of magnitude anyway./
[01:01] <SpeedEvil> It would be less - if you could use monatomic hydrogen
[01:01] <SpeedEvil> But the molecule diffueses slower than He

[03:04] <kristianpaul> sure they are :)
[03:09] <SpeedEvil> If you could get stable monatomic hydrogen, it'd be awesome as rocket fuel.
[03:09] <SpeedEvil> Interestingly, it is possible to get a metastable state in liquid hydrogen that makes it not burn as energetically.
[03:26] <Dan-K2VOL1> hm
[03:26] <Dan-K2VOL1> interesting
[03:42] <SpeedEvil> Or rather - won't adequately regeneratively cool rocket engines.

[07:34] <UpuWork> ah
[07:34] <costyn> UpuWork: 275 euro
[07:34] <UpuWork> that sounds very reasonable
[07:35] <UpuWork> its a great radio

[07:51] <Darkside> standard forumla is radial is 0.235*wavelength in metres
[07:51] <UpuWork> 164mm...
[07:51] <Darkside> yeah, i get 162mm
[07:51] <Darkside> but thats close enough
[07:51] <UpuWork> I might borrow the clubs meter and test it

[10:15] <daveake> I could do with some sort of mast at home if we have any more trans-european flights to track. We're quite high up but when flights are low on the horizon they go below the tree line
[10:16] <daveake> Don't really want a permanent mast, so something I can erect (ooer missus) in a few minutes would be great.

[13:24] <Laurenceb> ok this is weird
[13:25] <Laurenceb> my stm32 i2c breaks when i connect USART1 up to screen on ym pc
[13:25] <Laurenceb> what does screen actually do... could it be echoing back?
[13:27] <costyn> Laurenceb: screen as in the unix program 'screen'?
[13:27] <Laurenceb> yes
[13:27] <costyn> afaik it's just another terminal emulator; it might send some funny chars when it connects to the serial interface tho
[13:27] <Darkside> i dont think screen echoes back
[13:27] <costyn> no it doesn't by default
[13:27] <Randomskk> screen is likely to assert DTR
[13:27] <Laurenceb> how strange
[13:27] <Zuph> Not by default.
[13:27] <Laurenceb> DTR isnt used
[13:27] <Randomskk> so you might want to check if DTR is getting asserted
[13:28] <Zuph> Laurenceb: What STM32 part?
[13:28] <Laurenceb> stm32f103
[13:28] <Laurenceb> only tx and rc are connected
[13:28] <Laurenceb> *rx
[13:28] <Laurenceb> all i can think is its chucking back a ton of data
[13:28] <Randomskk> put it on a scope or logic analyser, but
[13:28] <Randomskk> I doubt it
[13:28] <Laurenceb> guess i could scope it
[13:28] <Laurenceb> or noise interfereing
[13:29] <Laurenceb> but it boots if its connected to the pc
[13:29] <Laurenceb> if i boot then start screen 1s later its fine
[13:29] <Zuph> Laurenceb: Doing any pin remapping?
[13:30] <Laurenceb> yes
[13:30] <Laurenceb> not of usart1
[13:30] <Laurenceb> actually.. it might be my sensors
[13:30] <Laurenceb> i was power cycling the processor but not the sensor rail
[13:30] <Laurenceb> they might be getting confused and asserting the bus
[13:31] <Laurenceb> - my serial adaptor is off the sensor rail so i lose /dev/ttyUSB0 if i power cycle the sensors
[13:36] <Laurenceb> yeah thats the issue
[13:36] <Laurenceb> epic it works XD

[14:18] <SpeedEvil> So it's not quite ridiculous.
[14:19] <harok222> what do you guys think of spy satellite cameras, do you think they can see a license plate from space?

[14:19] <Laurenceb> maybe
[14:19] <SpeedEvil> Reading it may be problematic though.
[14:19] <SpeedEvil> harok222: 1.22*y/d is your friend.
[14:19] <harok222> the wavelength of light would make that difficult, but maybe you can slow down the speed of light in a material first, thus reducing the wavelength? or use metamaterials
[14:19] <BrainDamage> probably, consider you can reckognize a car model on google maps already
[14:20] <BrainDamage> and that's civillian "low res"
[14:20] <SpeedEvil> harok222: fail.
[14:20] <SpeedEvil> harok222: Your resolution cannot be better than your apature limit
[14:20] <SpeedEvil> Which is generally the diameter of the primary mirror or lens
[14:20] <harok222> have you heard of metamaterial lenses?
[14:21] <SpeedEvil> Not relevant in the case of spysats
[14:21] <harok222> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Superlens
[14:21] <harok222> right, it's just to prove it's possible
[14:23] <SpeedEvil> This works for microscopy, not telescopy
[14:23] <harok222> it's theoretical still, but it might be made to work one day for telescopes
[14:23] <harok222> i think
[14:24] <SamSilver> Would like to find one of these under the x mas tree. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wf_2E2IPk1M&feature=player_embedded
[14:24] <harok222> my theory is spysats use (freq) x (wavelength) = (speed of light). if you decrease the speed of light via a lens, the wavelength goes down and you can zoom in more, maybe ???? frequency stays the same.
[14:25] <SpeedEvil> That doesn't work for telescopes, as the input image is not near field.
[14:25] <harok222> what does near field mean?
[14:25] <Randomskk> you'd need to change the speed of light from the sat to the ground
[14:25] <harok222> that could be hard...
[14:26] <BrainDamage> within 1 wavelenght
[14:26] <SpeedEvil> Yes, you basically need the telescope to be almost pressed to the object in question.
[14:26] <BrainDamage> which for light is few um
[14:26] <SpeedEvil> In which case, it's not really needed anymore.
[14:26] <harok222> so maybe it would work for lithography but not a telescope?
[14:26] <SpeedEvil> yes
[14:27] <harok222> then how DO they see license plates in space ???? maybe they have many infrared cameras far apart and use some kind of interference then ??? i'm baffled.
[14:27] <SpeedEvil> A bloody big mirror.
[14:27] <harok222> it should be fuzzy though
[14:28] <harok222> like, bigger than Hubble?
[14:28] <SpeedEvil> Sure.
[14:28] <SpeedEvil> yes.

[14:30] <SpeedEvil> Modern U.S. IMINT satellites are believed to have around 10cm resolution; contrary to references in popular culture, this is sufficient to detect any type of vehicle, but not to read the headlines of a newspaper.[2]

[14:31] <Laurenceb> erm.. you arent going to read any numberplates there
[14:31] <SpeedEvil> To read a licenceplate reliably, you're going to need a big mirror.
[14:31] <harok222> "Modern U.S. IMINT satellites are believed to have around 10cm resolution; contrary to references in popular culture, this is sufficient to detect any type of vehicle, but not to read the headlines of a newspaper"
[14:32] <Zuph> Modern US satellites have ~3m mirrors, iirc.
[14:32] <Zuph> (Compare to hubble's 2.4)
[14:32] <SpeedEvil> For much better, you're going to need a _much_ more advanced thingy.
[14:32] <SpeedEvil> Or UAVs
[14:32] <SpeedEvil> Which are lots cheaper.

[14:34] <harok222> I heard if you want to photograph from space you need "permission" from NRO
[14:34] <BrainDamage> killing people is more important than knoledge research
[14:34] <SpeedEvil> An interesting calculation I did was that it's quite possible to use a modest laser illuminator on a target on the ground, if tehre isn't enough light.
[14:34] <SpeedEvil> From a spysat.
[14:35] <costyn> harok222: define 'space'?
[14:35] <harok222> maybe you could use the laser to see vibrations on a window? i.e. "listen in" from space?
[14:35] <harok222> um, orbit = space
[14:35] <costyn> harok222: low earth orbit? geostationary?
[14:35] <harok222> NRO wants you to get their permission if you intend to gather ANY EM data from earth orbit or higher
[14:35] <harok222> even low earth orbit
[14:35] <SpeedEvil> Not really.
[14:35] <SpeedEvil> The atmosphere varies _lots_
[14:36] <SpeedEvil> The path between the object, and teh sat will be very variable on a millisecond basis.
[14:36] <SpeedEvil> This will scramble reflective info

[14:38] <harok222> there are military satellites that use lasers to measure the distance between pairs of satellites. this maps gravity, used for inertial navigations.

[15:00] <UpuWork> harok222 is what happens when you get on slashdot...
[15:00] <NATO_> Zuph, it will be 500mW (probably more with higher Voltage battery and better antenna) but I will need a strong signal since I'm using AFSK.

[15:05] <Laurenceb> NATO_: i thought of doing psk with delay lines and a switch
[15:05] <Laurenceb> a bit hackish, but fairly simple
[15:05] <NATO_> Laurence, how would that work?
[15:06] <Laurenceb> digikey have single to differential baluns
[15:07] <Laurenceb> youd need one of those
[15:07] <Laurenceb> then a DPDT RF switch iirc

[18:18] <Zuph> I'd just like a super cheap, simple transmitter that I can pick up with an HT and decode with FL-DIGI.
[18:18] <Laurenceb_> you can transmit a carrier and change the frequency

[18:20] <Zuph> Yeah, just having trouble finding a part that'll let me twiddle the carrier by so little.
[18:20] <Laurenceb_> the si4432 LNA only has a 4dB noise figure
[18:20] <Laurenceb_> cc1020 is 325hz or so pll step size
[18:21] <Laurenceb_> and the si4432 is very tunable, not sure what harmonic rejection is like
[18:21] <Laurenceb_> but from the datasheet it should work quite well
[18:21] <Laurenceb_> id guess better than funcube, just less frequency range
[18:22] <Laurenceb_> actually no, the input impedance matching doesnt like frequency changes

[18:32] <Hiena> The APEX launch got me thinking. How about making tracker receivers from an old TV tuners? These bastards usually requires few supply voltage and a VCO tuning voltage and spew out the demodulated composite video and sound.
[18:34] <SpeedEvil> Finding suitable documented tuners in high enough availability to bother is gonna be fun.

[18:35] <SpeedEvil> I was - a couple of years ago - wanting to make a teeeny TV transmitter for the n900.
[18:35] <SpeedEvil> It was all completely doable.
[18:35] <griffonbot> Received email: James Coxon "Re: [UKHAS] Anyone using dl-fldigi on a mac?"
[18:35] <Zuph> Hiena: Dan had an idea like that a while ago.
[18:35] <SpeedEvil> Except the composite modulator chips had been axed a year before.
[18:36] <Zuph> Internet controlled SDR in a box. Send one to grandma, and tell her to plug it in, and it automatically connects to wifi, and waits for a command.
[18:36] <Hiena> The UHF ch.22 only 30MHz higher from the tracker, so only a few voltage drop on the VCO voltage should be enough to reach the frequency.
[18:36] <Hiena> Maybe a PIC and a serial DA would be enough for the PLL function.
[18:37] <SpeedEvil> It's kinda barking mad that there are people - and not that few of them - that can stream a megahertz of spectrum at you.
[18:38] <Hiena> Okay. I'll check the local electronic hobby store for the old Videoton tuner prices.

[19:47] <nosebleedKT> hawkins?
[19:47] <Lunar_Lander> no, Dawkins
[19:47] <Lunar_Lander> Hawkins is awesome
[19:47] <Lunar_Lander> Dawkins is a biologist and atheist

[20:06] <somnium> Hi all
[20:08] <Lunar_Lander> hi somnium
[20:09] <somnium> Could any one give me some advice on the Lassen IQ, does it work above 60k? As i looked on a data sheet and it says its limit is 60k. But its recomended on the UKHAS site..
[20:10] <Upu> I think they've been used sucessfully
[20:10] <Upu> the COCOM limits say it should disable if its over 60000 AND going more than 500 knots I think
[20:11] <Upu> as long as you balloon doesn't do more than 500 knots you should be ok, if it is doing more than that you have bigger issues
[20:12] <somnium> I would be surprised if we manage more than 500 knots!
[20:14] shipit (~shipit@204-15-2-155-static.ipnetworksinc.net) joined #highaltitude.
[20:15] <somnium> I think i understand now.. As it uses and AND statement, more the altitude and speed need to be too large before it gets blocked
[20:17] <SpeedEvil> Some get it wrong, and use OR
[20:17] <priyesh> somnium: Upu: Alpha used the iQ. It's all okay! :P
[20:18] <somnium> Thanks!!
[20:19] <daveake> I used the IQ too. I set mine to flight mode, using the Trimble setup software, but I don't believe that's necessary. For some others (e.g. ublox) it is.
[20:19] <jonsowman> it isn't
[20:20] <daveake> ta
[20:20] <jonsowman> can't hurt though :)
[20:20] <daveake> That's what I thought :)
[20:20] <Lunar_Lander> hi SpeedEvil daveake priyesh jonsowman
[20:20] <jonsowman> hi
[20:20] <SpeedEvil> "
[20:20] <daveake> Also set it to "sensitive" mode. Which I guess is slightly better than it usually is!
[20:20] <priyesh> hi
[20:20] <Lunar_Lander> I think it's 1000 knots
[20:21] <daveake> Still more than a hab will do unless it gets collected by a fast jet ...
[20:21] <Lunar_Lander> definately

[20:35] <nosebleedKT> anyone knows if its easy to decode KISS messages?
[20:36] <jonsowman> KISS?
[20:37] <nosebleedKT> it has to do with TNC.
[20:37] <nosebleedKT> im not so familiar with it
[20:38] <jonsowman> a KISS mode TNC is just one that doens't do the AX.25 stuff
[20:38] <jonsowman> that's left to the upstream device, usually a computer
[20:39] Hiena (~boreger@81.93.195.181.datatrans.hu) left irc: Remote host closed the connection
[20:39] <nosebleedKT> you means it doesnts decode the ax25 frame but sends it raw?
[20:39] <jonsowman> correct
[20:39] <nosebleedKT> so thats why i get garbage output
