[07:02] <natrium42> i was just testing stuff
[07:02] <Upu> ok
[07:02] <natrium42> made the payloads scrollable
[07:03] <Upu> ah good idea
[07:03] <natrium42> so i created a bunch of flights, but somebody deleted them!
[07:03] <Upu> wasn't me
[07:04] <Upu> someone deleted BOBAS
[07:04] <Upu> he asked us to leave it there for a day or two
[07:04] <natrium42> well, the data is still on rob's server

[07:18] <jcoxon> SpeedEvil, stones while in the kidney don't actually come under renal
[07:18] <jcoxon> they are urology :-)

[07:18] <jcoxon> cause you can surgically remove stones
[07:19] <SpeedEvil> Not mostly ultrasound?
[07:19] <SpeedEvil> Or is that classed as surgery?
[07:19] <jcoxon> the urological surgeons do organise that
[07:19] <jcoxon> depends on position and size
[07:19] Action: SpeedEvil wonders again about making a MRI scanner.
[07:19] <SpeedEvil> Not a good one.
[07:20] <SpeedEvil> Just one that if you put your hand in, 3 hours later, it can verify if it's a left or right hand, and it has the right number of bones.

[08:37] <daveake> lol
[08:37] <daveake> They did say "unmanned" so that's good :).
[08:38] <daveake> They ignored all the photos from the launch, and chose one from the cloud2 launch

[10:51] <chembrow> Hi guys. I'm looking at my first rig. Is there much practical difference between the older Yaesu ft-817 and an ft-817nd?
[11:00] <russss> not for HAB stuff
[11:01] <chembrow> and outside HAB? I'm not interested in HF.
[11:02] <chembrow> Any general issues with an old second hand 817 to be aware of?
[11:02] <russss> I looked at this when I bought mine and I decided that it wasn't worth worrying about, but I can't remember exactly what differences the ND has
[11:02] <chembrow> you've got an 817 then?
[11:02] <russss> then I ended up getting an ND anyway
[11:02] <russss> yeah

[11:02] <russss> I don't have a license though (yet)
[11:03] <russss> (this is ironic because I organise amateur radio courses...)
[11:03] <chembrow> I was going to get the ND, but the regular 817 can be had for half the price 2nd hand. I should be getting my license soon, I'm finishing the course now
[11:04] <russss> this is a good site if you can stand the comic sans: http://www.ka7oei.com/ft817pg.shtml
[11:05] <russss> the biggest difference to the ND is that they added the 60 meter band
[11:06] <russss> if you can get an 817 for half the price of the 817ND I'd say go for the 817
[11:07] <costyn> russss: useful link, thx. I recently got an 817 as well, still have a lot to learn about it
[11:13] <Upu> Great radios love mine
[11:13] <hibby> 817 is a beauty
[11:14] <GW8RAK> The early 817's had a tendency to blow the PA stage.
[11:14] number10 (568eafbe@gateway/web/freenode/ip.86.142.175.190) joined #highaltitude.
[11:14] <GW8RAK> Late model ND's can only be widebanded with hardware. Early ND's and 817's can be widebanded in software
[11:15] <GW8RAK> (PA stages would blow for apparently no reason)
[11:15] <chembrow> there's also some references to the SEL knob going loose (including on the one I'm looking at)
[11:15] <russss> ah interesting. I wonder if my ND is a late model or not
[11:16] <GW8RAK> Download 817 Commander software, IIRC, and try to wideband it. If successful, then great, if not it's a case of solder links
[11:17] <GW8RAK> Widebanding mostly affects TX. The base 817 has quite wide RX

[17:04] <cuddykid> hi all
[17:05] <cuddykid> daveake_: congratulations with buzz 2 - a very good write up too :D
[17:06] <daveake_> Glad you liked it :)
[17:06] <cuddykid> sounded like you had a great trip!
[17:07] <daveake_> Yeah ... part of me thinks I really should have tried to find the payload, but on the other hand we had a great time in Bruges, and Peter found it for me the next day anyway.
[17:08] <cuddykid> does anyone know if uavs are exempt from any regs if they fly above controlled airspace? the idea is to take it up by balloon and fly it as close as possible to a specific point then deploy chute - that way hopefully avoiding the pesky CAA people!
[17:08] <daveake_> I'm looking forward to reading his write-up. Sounds like it was quite a challenge to find and retrieve it
[17:08] <cuddykid> Bruges looked very nice
[17:08] <daveake_> Dunno if you saw http://www.theregister.co.uk/2011/12/07/balloon_record/
[17:08] <daveake_> Lovely little city
[17:09] <daveake_> Nice time of the year to visit with the Christmas markets
[17:09] <cuddykid> yep, that's how I first heard about it! (via Upu's tweet)
[17:09] <daveake_> Mrs Dave spent quite a bit :p
[17:09] <cuddykid> haha
[17:09] <daveake_> Cool
[17:09] <daveake_> Not seen Upu's tweet ... linky?
[17:09] <cuddykid> also - regarding your in car setup, is that just a standard uhf aerial?
[17:10] <cuddykid> will try and get a link
[17:10] <daveake_> Yeah, nice little 70cm one from ebay
[17:11] <cuddykid> will definitely have to get one of them for next launch - stopping every few miles to get out the yagi wasn't great
