[01:28] <MLow> everything i read says this should work
[01:28] <MLow> i should be decoding fine
[01:42] <MLow> everyone is stumped i guess, or out atm
[01:42] <MLow> convenient :()
[01:42] <Darkside> :P
[01:42] <Darkside> yeah, i have no idea
[01:42] <Darkside> mine works fine >_>
[01:43] <MLow> i dont think lemos will refund
[01:43] <MLow> based on my evidence
[01:44] <MLow> what do you use to decode aprs?
[01:44] <Darkside> my handheld (now) or the APRS network >_>
[01:44] <MLow> i mean software
[01:45] <MLow> just trying to eliminate anything on my end
[01:45] <Darkside> uhmm
[01:45] <Darkside> http://sourceforge.net/projects/qtmm/
[01:45] <Darkside> try that
[01:45] <Darkside> thats just a simple AFSK demodulator
[01:45] <Darkside> i used it when i was first testing the module
[01:46] <MLow> im using agwpe which is ancient
[01:46] <Darkside> mm
[01:46] <Darkside> try this program
[01:46] <MLow> i mean it decodes the local packets but ill try anything
[01:46] <Darkside> mm
[01:46] <Darkside> well, see is that program works
[01:47] <Darkside> or put an antenna on your module, and see if the network will decode you
[01:47] <MLow> there is a small antenna
[01:47] <MLow> but i dont know how close nearest igate is
[01:47] <Darkside> aprs.fi
[01:48] <MLow> yeah
[01:48] <MLow> http://aprs.fi/?c=raw&call=KF5KWE-11&limit=50&view=normal
[01:48] <MLow> those are tests with a mobile radio
[01:48] <Darkside> looks like theres a digi nearby
[01:49] <Darkside> so if you get decoded by that you'll get into the network fine

[08:45] <eroomde> if anyone comes across a canon ixus 220 (called the elph300 outside europe) on their ebay travels, for a decent price, please shout!
[08:45] <eroomde> i want to nab one for hab
[08:45] <daveake> why that one in particular?
[08:46] <daveake> and do you want it in red or silver? ;-)
[08:47] <eroomde> wate:)
[08:47] <eroomde> whoops
[08:47] <eroomde> um, i want 24mm (35mm equiv) at the wide end
[08:47] <daveake> ah
[08:47] <eroomde> whereas most of the powershots are 35mm (equiv) at the wide end
[08:47] <daveake> not many compacts have that, as I'm sure you know already
[08:47] <eroomde> and there's quite a noticable difference between the too
[08:47] <eroomde> more curvature
[08:47] <daveake> absolutely
[08:48] <eroomde> yeah indeed
[08:48] <eroomde> i spent a few hours yesterday trying to find something in the intersection of the venn diagram of price, 24mm, and intervalometer capable
[08:48] <eroomde> and the ixus 220 was more or less the only one
[08:49] <eroomde> actually the ixus 220 is ok too
[08:49] <eroomde> d'oh
[08:55] <daveake> not forgetting the 220
[08:56] <daveake> Looking at an ebay photo, that looks like the same iddy biddy battery that Julie's IXUS 50 uses
[08:57] <daveake> You'll need to bring the battery connections out to a larger battery
[08:57] <eroomde> indeed
[08:58] <daveake> I was going to use the 50 on my first launch, and I took apart a standard battery and inserted wires to go outside the camera. You're welcome to have that to save you the trouble.
[08:58] <daveake> http://www.daveakerman.com/?p=66
[08:59] <eroomde> ah, back in the day (imagine me as the fat man in the 'you must be a unix user' cartoon) we had no choice but to do surgery on all our cameras, because there was no such thing as chdk. So I'm perfectly happy to hack them all to pieces.

[10:25] <eroomde> i haven't had a chance to bash the csv file yet
[10:25] <eroomde> will do so shortly when i get a moment
[10:26] <MLow> i was thinking the argent data transmitter, but they seem to be out of stick
[10:26] <cuddykid> eroomde: no probs, the csv doesn't include altitude - which I'm going to have a look at later and how it corresponds etc
[10:26] <MLow> stock*
[10:26] <MLow> UpuWork: thanks for the sympathy u.u
[10:26] <UpuWork> any time :)
[10:26] <MLow> this whole situation has set me back both in terms of the project and mentally
[10:27] <MLow> ive probably spent hours collectively just staring at the hx1...while it mocks me
[10:27] <cuddykid> MLow: I know the feeling. Where are you based?
[10:27] <costyn> daveake: I read your blogpost yesterday, was a fun read but light on technical details for us HAB nerds. I was curious how the rfm22b performed

[10:27] <cuddykid> nice
[10:27] <MLow> you think it could be a humidity thing??
[10:27] <MLow> we average about 40% hm
[10:27] <cuddykid> doubt it
[10:28] <MLow> ...yeah im just grabbing at straws
[10:28] <fsphil> Have you tried a different receiver?
[10:29] <daveake> costyn Well, yes it's aimed at the general public :-)
[10:29] <cuddykid> MLow: it must be like 4ish in the morning?!
[10:29] <MLow> yeah i woke up
[10:30] <MLow> i work a double tomorrow though i cant sleep
[10:30] <MLow> ugh
[10:30] <cuddykid> MLow: what exactly isn't working? Are you hearing anything at all over the radio?
[10:30] <MLow> yeah i hear it just fine
[10:30] <MLow> it just never decodes
[10:31] <MLow> thats maddening
[10:31] <MLow> it's just as strong as local packets, and the local ones decode just fine
[10:31] <MLow> (though there isnt much traffic now)
[10:31] NickB1 (c24e2462@gateway/web/freenode/ip. joined #highaltitude.
[10:32] <cuddykid> ahh ok, I would doubt it's a faulty hx1 (I may be wrong)
[10:32] <MLow> as far as i got with help was that the sinewave appears to show a difference in deviation with each tone
[10:32] <cuddykid> have you checked the correct voltages/resistors etc?
[10:33] <cuddykid> hmm, I'm no radio expert unfortunately :(
[10:33] <MLow> ive narrowed it down to the radio or how it's hooked up
[10:33] <fsphil> mine is the same MLow .. I'll make a recording later when I get home
[10:33] <MLow> fsphil: it doesnt decode?
[10:33] <fsphil> mine decodes fine
[10:33] <cuddykid> I would yes it's how it's hooked up - but I may be wrong
[10:33] <NickB1> Yay, found certified rope :)
[10:33] <cuddykid> :D
[10:33] <fsphil> I still wonder if the receiver might have an effect
[10:34] <MLow> i can make a recording of mine, can you somehow test to see if it decodes?
[10:34] <fsphil> yea, fire away
[10:34] <MLow> because i also made a recording of the sinewave
[10:34] <MLow> and it looks non-uniform in deviation
[10:35] <MLow-laptop> and im making the recording now
[10:35] <cuddykid> you're code/how it's hooked up
[10:35] <fsphil> the radio will filter the higher frequency tone
[10:35] <fsphil> slightly
[10:35] <MLow-laptop> cuddykid: code is fine, because hooked directly into the laptops mic jack it decodes the packet
[10:35] <MLow-laptop> as well as hooked of to a mobile radio rig
[10:35] <cuddykid> ahh ok :)
[10:37] <daveake> Let's get this right ... your Tx is picked up OK by radios other than this one, and this one decodes packets other than the ones your sending?
[10:37] <MLow-laptop> yeah
[10:37] <MLow-laptop> if i understand you, it is late
[10:37] <MLow-laptop> or early..
[10:38] <MLow-laptop> if i hook this exact breadboard up to a mobile 2m, it sends packet that is decoded and igated by local network
[10:38] <daveake> I'm not a radio guy, but sounds to me that you're overloading the radio. Try getting some distance between them.
[10:38] <MLow-laptop> the antenna is in the attic 15ft away or so
[10:38] <MLow-laptop> and the hx1 is using a whip 9.72in long
[10:39] <MLow-laptop> with 3v3 logic on txd
[10:39] <MLow-laptop> will an atmega running at 3v3 accept 5v serial logic?
[10:39] cuddykid (~acudworth@ left irc: Quit: cuddykid
[10:40] <fsphil> my hx1 and radio are only about 3 metres apart
[10:40] <daveake> It's just one combination (your Tx to this particular receiver) that doesn't work. All other 3 permutations work. Can't be many explanations for that.
[10:40] <fsphil> the radio in this case is the funcube dongle, but I also use the ft817 and it worked fine
[10:40] <fsphil> but I would test it with another receiver just to rule that out
[10:42] <MLow-laptop> http://dl.dropbox.com/u/12996303/mlow-brrraaaap.wav
[10:43] <MLow-laptop> i dont have another receiver
[10:44] <gonzo_> on fm packet, you also have the problems of slow TX keyup delays and rx with a slow squelch
[10:44] <MLow-laptop> the squelch is open
[10:44] <gonzo_> you can try opening the squelch on your rx, if you are using it
[10:44] <gonzo_> rgr, ok
[10:44] <MLow-laptop> ty tho :)
[10:44] <MLow-laptop> i have been at this a few days hahaha
[10:45] <gonzo_> what';s your rx?
[10:45] <MLow-laptop> icom ic2000
[10:46] <fsphil> there's a really bad buzz on that recording
[10:46] <MLow-laptop> the squelch?
[10:46] <fsphil> during the packet
[10:46] <gonzo_> a modern radio, will have filters for a 10/12.5khz channel
[10:46] <fsphil> maybe buzz is the wrong noise
[10:46] <gonzo_> you may just have yuour tx deviation too high
[10:46] <fsphil> but there's definitely some kind of noise there
[10:47] <gonzo_> the remote igate man may have an older radio with wider filters
[10:47] <MLow-laptop> i have modified the deviation to no avail
[10:47] <gonzo_> ok
[10:47] <fsphil> local QRM?
[10:47] <MLow-laptop> using both lower voltage logic and adjusting the trim pot on the modukle
[10:48] <fsphil> can you move the receiver closer
[10:48] <MLow-laptop> i have removed the antenna
[10:48] <MLow-laptop> and it sounds the same
[10:48] <MLow-laptop> also eliminates the local traffic
[10:49] <MLow-laptop> (on the rx end)
[10:49] <gonzo_> a rouugh guide to the deviation level, is, adjust it to be about the some volume as the other local traffic.
[10:49] <fsphil> I'm going to make a recording of mine
[10:49] <fsphil> just as a comparason
[10:50] <MLow-laptop> how would i go about decoding a recording?
[10:51] <MLow> hm your right i can hear a buzz
[10:51] <fsphil> hmm.. my radio at home is not responding
[10:53] <MLow-laptop> my luck spreading
[10:54] <daveake> It already spreaded to you from cuddykid. There's no stopping it now ...
[10:54] <daveake> s/ed/
[10:55] <daveake> Anyone (else) think it would be a neat thing to have a shared Google calendar for our launches?
[10:56] <gonzo_> good idea, there does need an unified notification system
[10:57] <gonzo_> (I usually onkly find out on the mail group, and getting a diaply digest, I find out the day after it happened)
[10:57] <daveake> :-). The calendar can be linked to the google group which makes it easier

[10:59] <MLow-laptop> http://dl.dropbox.com/u/12996303/mlow-brrraaaap-ht.wav

[12:00] <MLow-laptop> so mic-e is a different encoding?
[12:00] <oh7lzb> that's yet another position encoding in APRS... having three different ones is one thing that drives me to nuts at times
[12:00] <oh7lzb> yeah, you can find it in the same PDF
[12:00] <MLow-laptop> WHY
[12:01] <oh7lzb> hysterical reasons
[12:01] <oh7lzb> historical, i mean
[12:03] <MLow-laptop> why would anyone continue to use it then? or is it better?
[12:04] <oh7lzb> a lot of devices implement mic-e but not compressed
[12:05] <oh7lzb> including a large fleet of Kenwoods and other commercial devices
[12:05] <MLow-laptop> so is compressed less supported by igates then?
[12:05] <oh7lzb> compressed is technically better in some respects (better resolution, for one)
[12:05] <oh7lzb> but some software doesn't decode it, like the older Kenwoods
[12:06] <oh7lzb> No, that's not true - igates support any position encoding just fine
[12:06] <oh7lzb> including any future ones you might come up with on your own
[12:06] <oh7lzb> igates just receive packets and push them as they are on the APRS-IS
[12:06] <MLow-laptop> because they forward the whole packet to is?
[12:06] <MLow-laptop> ah
[12:06] <MLow-laptop> well thats good
[12:06] <MLow-laptop> aprs.fi supports compressed then i guess
[12:07] <oh7lzb> yes indeed, it uses the Ham::APRS::FAP decoder module you can use too if you like
[12:07] <MLow-laptop> im using an avr and C# tracker program
[12:07] <MLow-laptop> i think id rather just come up with the code myself
[12:07] <oh7lzb> it can be fun, yes
[12:08] <MLow-laptop> all i need is clearly laid out in the white page
[12:08] <oh7lzb> but implementing the whole aprs spec and all of it's addendums and variations is a huge task
[12:08] <MLow-laptop> well plain text coordinates is already working
[12:08] <MLow-laptop> icons, etc
[12:09] <MLow-laptop> the program simply connects to agwpe for packets
[12:11] <MLow-laptop> its working nicely with 500+ icons on map
[12:11] <MLow-laptop> scrolls/zooms with ease
[12:11] <oh7lzb> Cool!
[12:11] <MLow-laptop> the maps download so when there is no internet it uses the cache
[12:11] <oh7lzb> Planning on releasing it?
[12:11] <MLow-laptop> uh..never thought about it
[12:12] <MLow-laptop> it's a combination of a couple projects that are open source + my own workings :P
[12:12] <MLow-laptop> so i cant exactly take credit for much of it
[12:14] <MLow-laptop> i wouldnt mind sharing it if someone found it usefull, id imagine they would be more interested in the source, its all in C# so it's easy to muck with(even a simpleton like me)
[12:15] <MLow-laptop> what i want to know is, how am i supposed to tell what encoding(if any) a packet is using....
[12:15] <MLow-laptop> programatically
[12:16] <MLow-laptop> i suppose i can find if it has plain text coordinates with a simple regex
[12:16] <MLow-laptop> but then it's down to which encoding, if any
[12:19] <oh7lzb> The first byte of the packet data gives the packet type
[12:20] <oh7lzb> http://cpansearch.perl.org/src/HESSU/Ham-APRS-FAP-1.18/FAP.pm
[12:20] <oh7lzb> look at "sub parseaprs", it should be somewhat readable
[12:21] <oh7lzb> # Check the first character of the packet
[12:23] <MLow-laptop> lol at the regex for callsign
[12:23] <MLow-laptop> [A-Z0-9-]{1,9}
[12:23] <MLow-laptop> pretty generic
[12:23] <MLow-laptop> -------- would match
[12:24] Jim3 (518b9deb@gateway/web/freenode/ip. joined #highaltitude.
[12:24] <oh7lzb> Yes, it would be a valid callsign on the APRS-IS.
[12:25] <oh7lzb> If it's told that the packet was received from RF it's using check_ax25_call which is more strict
[12:26] <oh7lzb> on the APRS-IS people use lower case in callsign, and letters in the SSID, sometimes just to make the point that no, this is not happening on RF

[12:28] <MLow-laptop> if the first byte is one of 2 bytes it's a mic-e?
[12:29] <MLow-laptop> confusing
[12:29] <cuddykid> MLow-laptop: whilst I was logging off - I did notice you said something about using 3v3 logic? Was that to operate tx?
[12:30] <MLow-laptop> i tried with 5v
[12:30] <MLow-laptop> 3.3
[12:30] <cuddykid> oh :(
[12:30] <MLow-laptop> and through a voltage divider to 2v
[12:30] <MLow-laptop> the deviation is near perfect, but alas, not uniform
[12:31] <MLow-laptop> so callsigns in other countries are weird...
[12:32] <MLow-laptop> over here it's always XXYXXX, vanity can shorten then first and last group of letter
[12:32] <MLow-laptop> down to XYXX
[12:33] <gonzo_> I'm assuming that you have an audio tone in ttl coming from your modulation output?
[12:33] <MLow-laptop> kinda
[12:33] <MLow-laptop> it's the pwm pin on an atmega
[12:33] <gonzo_> poss needs some filtering.
[12:33] <MLow-laptop> see thats the thing
[12:33] <MLow-laptop> there are like 20 other people who run this setup exactly like this and it "just works"
[12:33] <gonzo_> The packet AFSK uses two tones, 1200 and 2400 (from mem)
[12:34] <gonzo_> and the 2nd harmonic of 1200 is.....
[12:34] <cuddykid> sounds like the local rag might run my weekend flight - just called up about it
[12:34] <MLow-laptop> ive tried a 10uf cap on the output
[12:34] <gonzo_> also, modulating at 1200db gives sidebands at.... 2400 again
[12:34] <daveake> cuddykid I'm sure they will
[12:35] <gonzo_> why should they spoil it
[12:35] <cuddykid> yeah, not that much happens around worcs any way lol
[12:35] <gonzo_> worries about tons of metal falling from the sky
[12:35] <gonzo_> ah, you mean coming to the launch aand geteting in the way
[12:36] <MLow-laptop> im not sure i understand the use of "rag" here
[12:36] <daveake> newpaper
[12:36] <gonzo_> MLow, not sure how you would filter it though tbh, as you still need the 2400hz tone to get through
[12:36] <daveake> new
[12:36] <daveake> news
[12:37] <MLow-laptop> well then congrats
[12:37] <MLow-laptop> i think
[12:37] <cuddykid> :)
[12:37] <MLow-laptop> gonzo_: the packet sounds normal...
[12:38] <MLow-laptop> it just doent get decoded
[12:39] <MLow-laptop> the view agwpe shows of the input make it look much different than a local packet though
[12:39] <MLow-laptop> it seems non-uniform in deviation, so im guessing thats the problem

[12:40] <gonzo_> unequal tone levels?
[12:40] <MLow-laptop> i dont know enough to say
[12:40] <MLow-laptop> but i would assume that if the packet uses 2 tones, they yes
[12:40] <MLow-laptop> it seems one tone deviates less
[12:41] <gonzo_> yep, that's what I meant.
[12:41] <MLow> it seems like they are both very different in deviation
[12:41] <gonzo_> Supprised that woudl cause a prob, unless the inbalance was dramatic
[12:41] <MLow> well it's all i've got so far
[12:42] <MLow> i cant understand how it's not decoding
[12:42] <gonzo_> you uaing a PC to decode on your radio?
[12:42] <MLow> but that seems to be the only difference between my hx1 and a known working hx1
[12:42] <MLow> right now it's an ht with output plugged into a laptop running agwpe
[12:43] <MLow> my tracker software connected to that agwpe to display the packets and map them
[12:43] <gonzo_> you could try uaing a decoder prog with a spectral display
[12:43] <gonzo_> fldigi / mixw or similar
[12:43] <gonzo_> and see what the levels lookm like
[12:43] <MLow> agepe has a "sound card tuning aid" that shows the input
[12:44] <gonzo_> is it a spectrum, or just a bar graph
[12:44] <MLow> has a waterfall spectrum
[12:44] <MLow> sinewave, frequency spectrum, eye diagram
[12:45] <gonzo_> on a spectrum display, the two tones about equal level?
[12:47] <MLow> not sure how to tell
[12:47] <MLow> i can screen shot it
[12:48] <gonzo_> go for it
[12:52] <MLow-laptop> http://dl.dropbox.com/u/12996303/hab%20pics/packets.JPG
[12:52] <MLow-laptop> see if you can guess which is the good packet and which is mine
[12:52] <MLow-laptop> the good packet is one fsphil provided and decodes fine(from an hx1)
[12:53] Dutch-Mill (3e2d8519@gateway/web/freenode/ip. joined #highaltitude.
[12:55] <MLow-laptop> my packet just looks odd
[12:55] <MLow-laptop> (it's the bottom one)
[12:57] <gonzo_> I assume the swathes of nouise are the unsquelcghed fm noise
[12:57] <MLow-laptop> yeah
[12:57] <gonzo_> looks like there is a lot of roll off of the higher frequencies
[12:58] <gonzo_> either in the rx or the link to the laptop
[12:58] <gonzo_> from the nooise you can see that
[12:58] <MLow-laptop> the top packet is a recording
[12:58] <MLow-laptop> from fsphil
[12:59] <gonzo_> that is probably what's giving the difference in the tones
[12:59] <gonzo_> phil's shopws a similar roll off in frequency
[13:00] <gonzo_> how were you getting pgil;s file into the decode sw?
[13:00] <MLow-laptop> looped the mic and headphone jack
[13:00] <gonzo_> Looks like the rollm off may be in the laptop
[13:01] <gonzo_> any settings for filtering/pre-emphersis etc?
[13:01] <gonzo_> in the sound card driver/mixer etc?
[13:01] <MLow-laptop> why would the laptop decode other packets just fine?
[13:01] <gonzo_> may be borderline
[13:01] <gonzo_> off for lunch, laters

[13:37] <daveake> ok. Mine worked well for me last weekend
[13:38] <daveake> it still works, just, after being dunked
[13:38] <number10> is that a largish payload jcoxon ?
[13:38] <eroomde> largish = >3kg

[13:40] <eroomde> comparatively speaking, 3kg is smallish if you compare it to some things
[13:40] <jcoxon> it could end up being a long duration flight

[13:43] <cuddykid> I'll get a time vs voltage graph for the other panel done in a bit
[13:43] <number10> maybe thats an idea for another experiment cuddykid - put on a photo diode and measure you payloads spin rate
[13:43] <cuddykid> see if they match up- they were kept completely seperate
[13:43] <cuddykid> number10: yeah, that would be cool :D
[13:43] <eroomde> the solar cell should also give you that info, really
[13:44] <eroomde> but you'll probably have to sample it at greater than once every 5 s
[13:44] <eroomde> as that means you can only see rotation periods of 10s of longer
[13:44] <eroomde> and i suspect they might be faster
[13:47] <cuddykid> yup - but possibly not in the early stage? it looks like 2 parallel lines
[13:48] <eroomde> that's what it would look like if you were sampling at 2 times the rotation rate
[13:48] <eroomde> facing sun, away from sun, facing sun, away from sun

[21:07] <nigelvh> It's been a little over four years for us now. As for the wondering vs knowing stuff. Personally, I think that's crap. I figure it's natural to wonder what it would be like. I do figure when the time's right you'll know though.
[21:07] <MLow> thats what i mean
[21:08] <MLow> also, my eyes, my eyes, THEY BURN

[21:09] <Upu> probably will given my soldering

[21:09] <MLow> also is that SMA?
[21:09] <Upu> yeah
[21:09] <Upu> x 2
[21:09] <MLow> what are you doing for an antenna?
[21:09] <Upu> good question
[21:09] <MLow> because i cant find any cheap coax source
[21:10] <nigelvh> Is the second one for an antenna?
[21:10] <MLow> i figured id just solder on a whipe directly
[21:10] <MLow> whip*
[21:10] <fsphil-laptop> no way I'm doing the shagi for 2m :)
[21:10] <fsphil-laptop> one is for 2m (aprs on 144.800) and the other is for 70cm (rtty on 434mhz)
[21:10] <nigelvh> I'd use a piece of cable leading to your antenna. That's going to be REALLY hard on your solder joints.
[21:11] <MLow> cant find a source for coax like i said
[21:11] <nigelvh> fsphil: fancy pants
[21:11] <MLow> otherwise id do a sma connector
[21:11] <fsphil-laptop> :)
[21:11] <nigelvh> What kind of coax are you looking for?
[21:11] <nigelvh> And how much?
[21:11] <fsphil-laptop> we can't use APRS here so the rtty is for general tracking
[21:11] <Upu> Well i think Darkside is doing s diplexor for it
[21:11] <MLow> not too thick, and like a foot or two
[21:11] <fsphil-laptop> aprs is for everywhere else
[21:12] <MLow> rg174u?
[21:12] <nigelvh> And what are you considering cheap?
[21:12] <Upu> for 70cms I use a RG316 SMA pigtail
[21:12] <MLow> not having to buy 100ft is a good start
[21:12] <Upu> with a SMA panel mount on the bottom which I make into a 1/4 wave
[21:12] <MLow> <50$
[21:12] <nigelvh> I have a spool of 100m of double shielded 316 that I'd sell you a few feet of if you're interested.
[21:13] <MLow> can you do USPS shipping?
[21:13] <nigelvh> Sure
[21:13] <MLow> id imagine a padded envelope would be good enough
[21:13] <nigelvh> Yeah
[21:13] <MLow> are connectors for 316 common?
[21:14] <nigelvh> Generally I use 174 connectors
[21:14] <nigelvh> If you need an SMA for it, I can sell you one of those too, but you'll want a crimp tool.
[21:14] <nigelvh> Really, I could just put the connector on if it would be easier.
[21:15] <MLow> lol that would be kind
[21:15] <MLow> i was thinking sma-coax-sma-sma chassis, then a ground plane antenna
[21:15] <Upu> just get a SMA pig tail 1 sec I'll get you a link

[23:29] <Lunar_Lander> hi CovBalloon
[23:29] <MLow-werk> hi Lunar_Lander
[23:29] <Lunar_Lander> hi
[23:29] <MLow-werk> hey
[23:29] <CovBalloon> evening
[23:29] <MLow-werk> evening
[23:30] <MLow-werk> im thinking about stomping on my hx1
[23:30] <fsphil-laptop> noooo
[23:30] <MLow-werk> release some frustration
[23:30] <MLow-werk> i drove to work at 100mph :S
[23:30] <MLow-werk> i was smoking a cig and thinking about the hx1, next thing i knew a cop was pulling me over
[23:32] <MLow-werk> i guess he found me pathetic enough, let me go
[23:33] <Lunar_Lander> ohh
[23:33] <MLow-werk> yeah i think i should just let the hx1 go, start fresh
[23:33] <fsphil-laptop> it might be wise
[23:34] <fsphil-laptop> listen to some relaxing music :)
[23:34] <nigelvh> No piece of tech is worth getting that much of a rise out of.
[23:34] <Lunar_Lander> you know what my best friends suggests?
[23:34] <nigelvh> Cigarettes kill you know.
[23:35] <Lunar_Lander> MLow-werk: close your eyes, take a deep breath, count to 10 and think of a sunlit field with flowers
[23:35] <Lunar_Lander> that's what my best friend (female) says to me when I am angry or so
[23:35] <fsphil-laptop> what if you're allergic to flowers and sunlight?
[23:35] <Lunar_Lander> um good question
[23:36] <Lunar_Lander> think of water
[23:36] <Lunar_Lander> :)
[23:36] <fsphil-laptop> good thinking!
[23:36] <Lunar_Lander> I think no one is allergic of water
[23:36] <nigelvh> I dunno, that dihydrogen monoxide can be dangerous stuff.
[23:36] <fsphil-laptop> lol
[23:36] Dan-K2VOL (~Dan-K2VOL@ joined #highaltitude.
[23:36] <fsphil-laptop> ban it!
[23:36] <Lunar_Lander> xD
[23:36] <nigelvh> Do you know how many people are killed by it every year?!?!
[23:37] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[23:37] <Lunar_Lander> damn
[23:37] <Lunar_Lander> um
[23:37] <fsphil-laptop> exactly. look at venus -- there is none there, and so far *nobody has died there*
[23:37] <Lunar_Lander> then think of
[23:37] <Lunar_Lander> pfff
[23:37] <nigelvh> And what's worse? It's lurking in your house, at your workplace, in the woods, IN YOUR BODY!
[23:37] <Lunar_Lander> how earth looks from space!
[23:37] <Lunar_Lander> that's not dangerous
[23:38] <nigelvh> Unless you survive on your ego being larger than the earth.
[23:38] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[23:38] <MLow-werk> enough water is toxic
[23:38] <MLow-werk> called drowning

[23:39] <nigelvh> The other option for water killing you is called water poisoning. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Water_intoxication

[23:42] <MLow-werk> how about this
[23:42] <MLow-werk> someone buys my hx1, i buy another hx1
[23:42] <MLow-werk> if the second doesnt work, i pay you back
[23:43] <MLow-werk> because it is then someone obviously my fault
[23:43] <MLow-werk> someone = somehow
[23:43] <fsphil-laptop> I on'y have the 144.800 mhz version
[23:45] <MLow-werk> hm
[23:45] <MLow-werk> right
[23:45] <MLow-werk> i meant buy another from lemos, but since mine would be 144.39 it would be useless to you
[23:45] <MLow-werk> unless you wanted it for telemetry uplink
[23:46] <MLow-werk> too bad the mx146 is not in stock
[23:46] <MLow-werk> i wanted to go with that one from the start
