[09:50] <SamSilver> hi 14h00 still on? jcoxon ?
[09:51] <jcoxon> yeah
[09:55] <number10> morning
[09:55] <nosebleedKT> yoz
[09:55] <jcoxon> number10, hey
[09:56] <jcoxon> whats the wind like up in suffolk?
[09:56] <number10> its a little bit gusty
[09:57] <number10> calmish inbetween
[09:57] <jcoxon> okay
[09:57] <jcoxon> its only a single balloon
[09:59] <Upu> morning
[10:00] <number10> nothing to do with the wind, as its not that bad.I just snapped the pole I was using for antenna.
[10:01] <number10> I think was really not fit for purpose
[10:04] <jcoxon> okay payload weight without insulation is 29.7g
[10:05] <NigelMoby> send it up naked!
[10:09] <number10> thats not bad
[10:10] <number10> whats the dc-dc converter you use?

[10:17] <number10> usefull independent weather http://www.weatherstations.co.uk/aws_map.htm - some not too good but the coastal one at walton is updating
[10:18] <number10> appearst to be more windy there - but you would expect that at the coast http://www.waltonfrintonlifeboat.co.uk/live_weather/live_weather.html
[10:21] <jcoxon> it'll be okay
[10:21] <jcoxon> just need a 1 minute calm bit
[10:21] <jcoxon> and we can launch
[10:21] <jcoxon> once its above the tree/pylon line it'll be okay
[10:25] <jcoxon> time for the last bit of testing
[10:33] <navrac_> its gusty here - with periods of calm inbetween, With a clear enough area I'd risk a 1600 although I'm about 30 miles from the launch site so YMMV

[10:35] <navrac_> I'm going to search out the last section of my aerial pole - without it I won't be able to track until it gets to ipswich as the aerial isnt clearing the chimney at the moment.
[10:37] <navrac_> weatherwise - this site has live weather - again 30miles but gives live wind etc http://www.framweather.co.uk/current.php
[10:44] <jcoxon> whew
[10:44] <jcoxon> got lock
[10:44] <cuddykid> morning all
[10:44] <jcoxon> that was getting a little worrying
[10:44] <cuddykid> jcoxon: good luck today! Are you at launch site?
[10:44] <jcoxon> nah not yet
[10:44] <jcoxon> will leave home at 11:30
[10:45] <cuddykid> cool :)
[10:45] <jcoxon> just to remind everyone there will be quite a bit of drift for about 1 minute in between the change in modes
[10:45] <jcoxon> it'll settle down though
[10:46] <navrac_> does it drift one way for rtty and another for hell?
[10:46] <jcoxon> yeah
[10:46] <jcoxon> at least in tests
[10:46] <jcoxon> doesn't take in to account temp changes
[10:47] <navrac_> ill run two instances of dl - fdigi then
[10:47] <jcoxon> yeah
[10:50] <jcoxon> cool - both hell and rtty are working
[10:50] <jcoxon> and the upload mechanisms work as well
[10:50] <jcoxon> remember hell needs to be manually inputted
[10:50] <jcoxon> http://habhub.org/files/picoatlas/
[10:54] <Upu> same frequency ?
[10:56] <jcoxon> 434.200
[10:56] <jcoxon> for you Upu
[10:56] <Upu> thx
[10:56] <Upu> didn't have much luck last time but see what conditions are like today
[10:56] <Upu> just ordered my brackets for the rotator
[10:57] <Upu> http://imagebin.org/192291
[10:58] <NickB1> tuned in
[10:58] <jcoxon> NickB1, launch is at 1400
[10:58] <NickB1> ok
[10:59] <jcoxon> Upu, what antenna do you have?
[10:59] <NickB1> will probably only be able to receive it when it gets a little to te south of my location
[10:59] <Upu> still under discussion, I was looking at a 19 el Tonna but it may just be too big so might just settle for a 15 el Diamond which is about 2 meters long
[11:01] <jcoxon> NickB1, okay well that will be later this afternoon
[11:01] <Upu> something 2 meter on the other boom for sat work

[11:18] <fsphil> oh wow
[11:18] <fsphil> the price!

[11:32] <WillDuckworth_> anyone know a good way to simulate the gps data of a flight into a flight computer?
[11:32] <SpeedEvil> simply play out a GPS recording into the reciever
[11:33] <WillDuckworth_> yep, sounds doable - any one got a source location i can grab?
[11:34] <SpeedEvil> Good question.
[11:36] <SpeedEvil> http://www.openstreetmap.org/traces
[11:36] <SpeedEvil> has GPS traces
[11:36] <SpeedEvil> but of course, they won't go up
[11:36] <WillDuckworth_> cool. found this from jcoxon which i'll try: http://ukhas.org.uk/launch:170610nova18pegvii:kmlfile
[11:37] <SpeedEvil> http://www.openstreetmap.org/traces/tag/flight too
[11:37] <WillDuckworth_> excellent - cheers
[11:37] <WillDuckworth_> will try and get http://ukhas.org.uk/code:emulator working too
[11:38] <SpeedEvil> Oh - also, I think gpsbabel can replay logs at the right speed
[11:39] <WillDuckworth_> cheers SpeedEvil - will give that a whirl too

[13:34] <Upu> navrac as above you may not have used the web space initially
[13:34] <RocketBoy> didn't
[13:35] <LazyLeopard> There were no homepages when I got my Demon account.
[13:35] <Upu> and/or archve.org may not have noticed you
[13:35] <navrac> homepages? - it was just email and usenet really
[13:36] <RocketBoy> and ftp
[13:36] <navrac> oh true
[13:36] <Upu> gopher...
[13:36] <LazyLeopard> Yeah. And gopher. ;)
[13:36] <LazyLeopard> ...and Archie
[13:37] <RocketBoy> oh yeah - forgotten that

[13:37] <RocketBoy> just waiting for the jcoxon to turn up for the launch
[13:37] <navrac> i remember it had a gateway to prestel which is what i mainly used it for
[13:39] <navrac> no it wasnt prestel - it was a 1200/75 system that i cant remember the name of that was used for emails
[13:39] <SpeedEvil> Jan 6 1991 is the first post to usenet I can find
[13:39] <Randomskk> older than me :|
[13:39] <SpeedEvil> But I know I was reading through the read-only usenet gateway before that
[13:40] <RocketBoy> yea - jcoxon is ere
[13:41] <navrac> ah it was called prestel - just not the television stuff
[13:41] <RocketBoy> bbl

[13:46] <navrac> never did actually finish the game - however long i spent on it - i remember the window thru the waterfall and got close but ever won it
[13:47] <navrac> trouble was my dev system didnt save properly so each game had to be started anew
[13:47] <number10> daveake__ I broke one of those telescopic poles - was using it for antenna and I think I over pulled the sections out - so that when it bent while putting it up it cracked a section

[17:01] <jcoxon> very frustrating
[17:01] <RocketBoy> I thoight I could hrear it a bit hen I was passing ipswich
[17:01] <jcoxon> thanks everyone for listening
[17:01] <RocketBoy> but then it just faded out
[17:01] <jcoxon> i wonder if its antenna or antenna connection damage
[17:04] <RocketBoy> could be - lets face it - it had a rough time
[17:04] <RocketBoy> just gona swing the yagi around again
[17:04] <jcoxon> yeh

[17:10] <WillDuckworth_> anyone know what the deal is with the launch window launch date/time is on the genpayload page - is it to make it automatically appear in the tracker?
[17:10] <jcoxon> no

[17:10] <jcoxon> its won't accept data outside the window i think
[17:10] <navrac> very very weak, but im pretty sure its there - got a 625, on slowhell just now
[17:10] <WillDuckworth_> for testing i guess?
[17:11] <jcoxon> navrac interesting
[17:12] <navrac> nothing on rtty - but it the signal is displaying the drift, stabalize you mentioned

[17:12] <fsphil> it's alive?
[17:12] <fsphil> ish
[17:12] <navrac> 434.1988
[17:13] <navrac> but i wouldnt trust the display on this receiver - I think its aout
[17:15] <navrac> its coming from the right direction - ish about 140 degerees, but itsincredibly week
[17:16] <jcoxon> nothing on isle of sheppey
[17:17] <navrac> its barely above the noise floor now

[17:23] <Upu> whats the RTTY shift ?
[17:23] <jcoxon> 500
[17:23] <Upu> this must be local
[17:25] <Upu> hmm
[17:25] <navrac> the one i had seemed to go rtty at a bit less then 500
[17:25] <Upu> I might just be seeing things in the noise
[17:25] <Upu> 434.199.74 something there
[17:26] <navrac> it gets a bit like that - an hour of trying to pick things out you see individual numbers now and then
[17:27] <jcoxon> hehe
[17:27] <jcoxon> i'm an expert at that
[17:28] <navrac> but probably due to the way the brain can see paterns in noise. The best I've seen was 3 numbers and a comma and an identical pattern underneath all at the right slope -
[17:28] <navrac> Im following the signal but its too weak to see anything now
[17:28] <jcoxon> well thats where hell helps
[17:29] <jcoxon> reduced filter size?

[17:29] <jcoxon> in config

[17:29] <navrac> if it was any smaller i'd have to get qa much bigger screen
[17:29] <jcoxon> there is a slider
[17:30] <navrac> its on 10 at the minute cant go any lower
[17:31] <Upu> I'm in normal Dl-fldigi with slow held on
[17:31] <Upu> I can't see that slider

[17:59] <fsphil-laptop> antenna gremlins
[17:59] <jcoxon> i blame trees
[18:00] <jcoxon> though we have a new technique to get payloads out of trees
[18:00] <fsphil-laptop> they've a lot to answer for
[18:08] <number10> what is the technique jcoxon?
[18:08] <jcoxon> we used piping as the pole
[18:08] <jcoxon> it was quite flexible so we could wiggle it around various branches
[18:08] <number10> how high
[18:09] <jcoxon> about 20m
[18:10] <number10> thats pretty good going!
[18:10] <daveake__> My 10m now feels rather pathetic :(
[18:10] <number10> and my one is now 8m
[18:11] <daveake__> You need something, erm, firmer number10. Try http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/30-FOOT-9m-STEEL-TELESCOPIC-PUSH-UP-MAST-HEAVY-DUTY-/180786192123?pt=UK_ConsumerElectronics_SpecialistRadioEquipment_SM&hash=item2a17b25efb#ht_2266wt_902
[18:11] <daveake__> then the flexi one can be kept for the trees
[18:12] <jcoxon> yeah the flexi bit helped
[18:12] <number10> I'll take a look and see how the bank balance is
[18:13] <number10> I was probably mis-using the flexi pole as an antenna rod
[18:14] <daveake__> I was thinking of getting one of those, plus I saw a pole support in B&Q today ... basically a steel screw that screws into the ground till it's flush, and has a hole in the top for a pole
[18:15] <daveake__> I don't really want (or need) a permanent mast and aerial attached to the house
[18:15] <number10> same here - too old for ladders

[18:19] <number10> may need some guy ropes on the pole
[18:19] <daveake__> They do variations on that general idea
[18:19] <daveake__> Yes
[18:20] <number10> there is a lighter fibreglass one taller but is £300 - http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/50FT-HEAVY-DUTY-FIBREGLASS-GRP-TELESCOPIC-MAST-/350494073332?pt=UK_ConsumerElectronics_SpecialistRadioEquipment_SM&hash=item519b1321f4
[18:21] <NickB1> having a small programming problem (floats)
[18:22] <jcoxon> NickB1, what platform?
[18:22] <NickB1> arduino
[18:22] <jcoxon> whats teh issue?
[18:22] <daveake__> Formatting?
[18:23] <NickB1> I'm extracting the lattitude and longtitude string out of the gps string
[18:23] <jcoxon> NickB1, seen tinyGPS library?
[18:23] <jcoxon> its quite useful
[18:24] <NickB1> then I use atof to convert these to floats
[18:24] <NickB1> these floats are converted into two strings (number before and after decimal point)
[18:25] <NickB1> but the last number of the string after the decimal point sometimes varies a bit from the original string
[18:26] <daveake__> float or double?
[18:26] <NickB1> double
[18:26] <jcoxon> they are the same on the arduino
[18:26] <NickB1> indeed
[18:26] <daveake__> ok
[18:26] <jcoxon> NickB1, yeah they'll be rounding issues with all these converison
[18:26] <jcoxon> s
[18:27] <NickB1> oh made a mistake there
[18:27] <NickB1> its string -> float -> integer
[18:27] <jcoxon> why not do string -> int
[18:27] <jcoxon> skip the float bit
[18:28] <jcoxon> split the string by the decimal point
[18:28] <NickB1> I did that using atoi
[18:29] <NickB1> but it gave me weird numbers
[18:30] <NickB1> i think it has something to do with zero-delimited
[18:30] <NickB1> but i dont fully understand that :)
[18:31] <jcoxon> what version of arduino are you using?
[18:31] <NickB1> 0023
[18:31] <jcoxon> oh right
[18:32] <jcoxon> i'd actually split it into 2 strings
[18:32] <jcoxon> then atoi
