[08:21] <fsphil-laptop> hey that's quite similar to my own. what band?
[08:21] <Darkside> all-band
[08:21] <Darkside> thats a codan 9350 tuner on the bottm of it i think

[08:22] <Darkside> http://www.codan.com.au/Portals/0/publications/hfradio/9350M_data.pdf
[08:22] <Darkside> thats the tuner on it
[08:23] <Darkside> we we have 100W of HF capability, and 50W of 2m/70cm, which uses the big omni on the centre of the roof
[08:23] <fsphil-laptop> that's a great idea
[08:24] <fsphil-laptop> having the tuner in the base
[08:24] <Darkside> yep
[08:24] <Darkside> its how all the mobile HF rigs work
[08:25] <Darkside> back later, heading home
[08:25] <fsphil-laptop> and it has a build in preamp
[08:26] <Upu> best chase car ever :)

[09:30] <OZ1SKY_Brian> well thats easy, you just put a upper limit in the range, so trackers 10000km away is automatic deleted
[09:30] <Dutch-Mill-mob> num strings *distance ?
[09:30] <Colin-G8TMV> jcoxon: you will have to scale it somehow or people that live near the launch sites will be peanalised
[09:30] <jcoxon> Colin-G8TMV, i think also launch people won't count
[09:30] <OZ1SKY_Brian> Say 1000km
[09:31] <Colin-G8TMV> jcoxon: well that was a given, but for example I only live 5 miles from Cambridge
[09:31] <jcoxon> yeah
[09:31] <Colin-G8TMV> also - what about those of us that work full time and can't do weekday launches
[09:31] <jcoxon> well i think we'll have to do it on a launch by launch basis
[09:32] <Upu> theres no prizes :)
[09:32] <Colin-G8TMV> might work
[09:32] <jcoxon> and then perhaps have something at the end of the year

[09:32] <Colin-G8TMV> Upu: not even free beer!
[09:32] <G4DPZ> morning all
[09:32] <jcoxon> but also its quite helpful - to see the ranges etc
[09:32] <griffonbot> @rafvz: RT @PD3EM: at 10:00 UTC today, the MUNDO and XABEN-21 High Altitude Balloons will be launched from Cambridge http://t.co/f9vvaXdo #UKHAS ... [http://twitter.com/rafvz/status/191096588406489088]
[09:32] <Upu> MONDO Elmar :)
[09:32] <Colin-G8TMV> Hmm... /me wonders what the current offset from UTC to HAB time is
[09:32] <OZ1SKY_Brian> how are the wind directions for england today?
[09:33] <Upu> oddly they are going north
[09:33] <Dutch-Mill-mob> Kinda golden string context and win a real one :-)
[09:33] <Upu> http://habhub.org/predict/#!/uuid=4def68505d05aed33f7108836ad8ddd03fc36a4e
[09:33] <OZ1SKY_Brian> Upu ahh me like :-)
[09:33] <PD3EM> sorry Upu
[09:33] <Dutch-Mill-mob> contest
[09:33] <jcoxon> Colin-G8TMV, oh yes - when its BST the ISH goes up loads
[09:33] <jcoxon> as people get confused when the gps reports UTC
[09:34] <jdtanner> Morning all&how are things going this morning? Success?
[09:34] <OZ1SKY_Brian> ah north west, well better than south west for me
[09:34] <Upu> not launched yet
[09:34] <Upu> morning
[09:34] <Colin-G8TMV> 26 mins and counting
[09:34] <PD3EM> Nice frontcover article on the new QST: http://imgur.com/gpGav
[09:34] <jdtanner> ooh good&much better than the Grand National
[09:34] <OZ1SKY_Brian> yeah 26min ísh
[09:34] <Colin-G8TMV> is anyone in here and also at the launch site?
[09:34] <Upu> interesting
[09:34] <Upu> not yet Colin no
[09:35] <jcoxon> PD3EM, i've been playing with that
[09:35] <jcoxon> it runs quite slow on my android devices
[09:35] <jcoxon> and has a fixed shift
[09:35] <PD3EM> yep, will scan whole article later for who's interested
[09:35] <jdtanner> Might make a brew and some toast and get comfortable :)
[09:35] <jdtanner> I would offer one&but
[09:35] <fsphil-laptop> yes, toast is good
[09:35] <Colin-G8TMV> Or - if anyone is in contact with the launch crew and can get them to use either PI or PY I can monitor
[09:36] <Upu> PI ?
[09:36] <fsphil-laptop> repeater
[09:36] <jdtanner> (I'm glad you asked)
[09:36] <Upu> oh
[09:36] <Colin-G8TMV> GB3PI the local(ish) 2m repeater
[09:36] <Colin-G8TMV> GB3PY is the even more local 70cms one
[09:37] <Colin-G8TMV> also of use today GB3PE the newly re-established Peterbro' repeater (2m)
[09:37] <jcoxon> one day we'll do a coordinated launch
[09:37] <fsphil-laptop> there's a 70cm repeater a few miles from our launch site, but I suspect we're the only ones who can hear it so ....
[09:37] <jcoxon> with radios and using the repeater etc
[09:38] <fsphil-laptop> shame there isn't a ventrilo client for android, we could use that to communicate
[09:38] <Colin-G8TMV> seems to me that it's much easier for the launch crew to keep the trackers informed with a hand-held than by having to type on a laptop on a flaky 3G connection
[09:39] <jcoxon> Colin-G8TMV, you sort of need a spare person to do that
[09:39] <jdtanner> :)
[09:39] <fsphil-laptop> yea, it's very difficult getting the balloon and payload ready and also being online
[09:39] <PD3EM> gonna sounds like mission control ;-)
[09:39] <Colin-G8TMV> jcoxon: naw, get a handie with a speaker-mic clipped to your collar
[09:39] <Darkside> it helps when theres heaps of people at the launc hsite
[09:40] <Darkside> we'll have... 8 people there tomorrow
[09:40] <Darkside> wait. more
[09:40] MoALTz_ (~no@host-92-2-132-29.as43234.net) left irc: Quit: Leaving
[09:40] <OZ1SKY_Brian> Or use "heytell" app
[09:40] <jdtanner> If we can get a decent 3g up at our site, I'm hoping to be able to broadcast video over the web&if the wife is happy being camerawoman that is!
[09:40] <Colin-G8TMV> OZ1SKY_Brian: this is a *radio* hobby not an Internet one - lets use the facilities of our hobby
[09:40] <jdtanner> Darkside: cool!
[09:41] <Upu> jdtanner I come with streaming video :)
[09:41] <jcoxon> Colin-G8TMV, well interestly its probably more an internet hobby :-)
[09:41] <Upu> as long as you have some 3G signal round there
[09:41] <jcoxon> but i get your point

[09:41] <jdtanner> :)
[09:41] <Upu> I like it as it means people can see what what is going on
[09:41] <OZ1SKY_Brian> Colin-G8TMV sure but heytell will work allmost everywhere, not limited to a repeater or nearby stations.
[09:41] <Upu> and why there is nothing on the map yet
[09:41] <jdtanner> Exactly
[09:41] <jdtanner> :)
[09:42] <PD3EM> or use ATV without 3G
[09:42] <Upu> at the end of the day you're reliant on all the nice people here to help but it is quite hard to do all that AND get your payload ready
[09:42] <OZ1SKY_Brian> PD3EM ATV is not widely spred, here in OZ there are none.
[09:42] <jdtanner> (ATV?)
[09:42] <PD3EM> Amateur TV
[09:42] <jdtanner> oooh...nice
[09:43] <PD3EM> very depending on region indeed OZ1SKY_Brian
[09:43] <Dutch-Mill-mob> Teamspeak...
[09:43] <Colin-G8TMV> Upu: true, that was one of the better things about the Southampton crowd, they seemed to have someone whose job it was to be in here and pass messages
[09:43] <PD3EM> Dutch-Mill-mob: also possible, but there seems to be places without 3G
[09:43] <Upu> We have contact with the launch site but no point bothering them
[09:44] <Upu> they'll be up when there are up
[09:44] <jdtanner> Upu: what mobile network are you on?
[09:44] <Upu> My data care is Three
[09:44] <Upu> card
[09:44] <jdtanner> on a dongle?
[09:44] <Upu> my mobile is O2
[09:44] <Upu> well its built into the netbook
[09:44] <jdtanner> cool
[09:44] <Upu> Didn't disconnect once last time I could have streamed from the car
[09:45] <Colin-G8TMV> Upu: do you know if they are vaguely on time? ie ought I to be able to hear anything? If the payload is running I might hear it from here
[09:45] <Upu> they were on site at the expected time
[09:45] <Upu> try tune in
[09:46] <jdtanner> Fingers crossed the lack of cell towers up here doesn;t cause a problem :)
[09:46] <Upu> see if you can hear anything
[09:46] <Upu> as long as they have signal should be something on the map soon

[09:55] <daveake> morning all. Mondo (1 of them) is up now
[09:56] <Upu> in the air ?
[09:56] <daveake> yep
[09:56] <Upu> cheers
[09:56] <daveake> xaben coming soon
[09:57] <daveake> I'm uploading XABEN1 sentences but not on the map yet
[09:57] <number10> what frequency is up?
[09:57] <Upu> MONDO-1 on frequency ?
[09:57] <daveake> I'll go ask - Michael is in the next field
[09:57] <fsphil-laptop> No configuration document for callsign 'XABEN1' found.
[09:57] <daveake> Could you sort that pretty please?
[09:57] <fsphil-laptop> sec
[09:58] <daveake> ta
[09:58] <Upu> its XABEN isn't it ?
[09:58] <OZ1SKY_Brian> 434.225 ( testing out small helical antenna - should radiat about 10mw ) - select MONDO-1
[09:58] <OZ1SKY_Brian> 434.375 ( testing out transmitter -10mw ) maybe rubbish but works amazingly on the ground - select MONDO-2
[09:58] <OZ1SKY_Brian> 434.525 limited to 10mw - select MONDO
[09:58] <OZ1SKY_Brian> note:- MONDO-1 and MONDO-2 transmitters are in same capsule ( payload )
[09:58] <OZ1SKY_Brian> rtty :- shift :- 425 ( may shift slightly ) - baud 50 - 8 bit - no parity - 1.5 stop
[09:58] <number10> wasnt it xaben rather than xaben1
[09:58] <daveake> XABEN1
[09:58] <Upu> ta fixing spacenear.us
[09:59] <daveake> It has a crc16 checksum, which may not have been the case before
[09:59] <daveake> should be filled soon
[10:00] <fsphil-laptop> xaben1 config is for crc16 so that's fine
[10:00] <futurity> Morning
[10:00] <daveake> excellent
[10:00] <Upu> daveake is MONDO-2 also in the air ?
[10:00] <jcoxon> anyone getting it?
[10:00] <futurity> i'm hearing 434.525 is this the one I should be tracking?

[10:44] <Upu_2E0UPU> right now would be a good time to go walk the dog
[10:44] <cuddykid> with the tracker zoomed out it looks like cambridge is the epicentre of some huge earthquake with all the circles :P
[10:44] <Upu_2E0UPU> I'll leave it on MONDO-2 back in 20
[10:44] <Laurenceb> heh they are heading towards me
[10:44] <Laurenceb> if we get any floaters
[10:45] <G4DPZ> going to get lunch, will leave the tracker running
[10:45] <cuddykid> I guess it's a spacenear.us glitch but& have a look at the altitude graphs for the flights - odd!

[12:21] <Upu_2E0UPU> I think they are
[12:21] <fsphil-laptop> xaben's shift is spot on 400hz, and I'm using 100hz bandwidth which decodes a lot better than the default
[12:21] <Matt_soton> so buzz just had a dodgy one?
[12:22] <fsphil-laptop> there where a few 1600g flights that burst really early
[12:22] <Upu_2E0UPU> well Steve had 2 fail at 27km too
[12:22] <Matt_soton> this seem fine however :P
[12:22] <Upu_2E0UPU> these are performing well :)
[12:23] <Upu_2E0UPU> anything over 37km is a bonus

[12:41] <jcoxon> Upu_2E0UPU, no more data :-(
[12:41] <Laurenceb> damn
[12:41] <Matt_soton> 27km
[12:41] <navrac> 27010
[12:41] <fsphil-laptop> I think it has to be received on the ground by more than a few stations
[12:41] <G0MJW> try widening your detection bandwidth. It is just about working
[12:41] <Upu_2E0UPU> wait
[12:41] <Upu_2E0UPU> it settled
[12:41] <fsphil-laptop> 37.5km for xaben
[12:42] <Laurenceb> last packet is soo close
[12:42] <cuddykid> that Mondo is all over the place
[12:42] <jcoxon> descent
[12:42] <navrac> no mondos stable now
[12:42] <Matt_soton> well tahts a very motion sensitive radio
[12:42] <Colin-G8TMV> right I've got it again
[12:42] <Matt_soton> what is it?
[12:42] <G0MJW> 24k?
[12:42] <navrac> but rapid descent
[12:42] <Darkside> jeez they drop fast
[12:42] <Upu_2E0UPU> MONDO ...
[12:42] <fsphil-laptop> resistance is absent
[12:42] <Upu_2E0UPU> burst
[12:42] <navrac> 23701
[12:42] <Darkside> 90m/s was insane
[12:42] <Upu_2E0UPU> unsurprisingly
[12:43] <Upu_2E0UPU> Right we need to keep a track on these as best we can but cover XABEN
[12:43] <jcoxon> thats 200mph
[12:43] <navrac> so the highest complete packet was 41547
[12:43] <fsphil-laptop> 38km
[12:43] <jcoxon> navrac, yup
[12:43] <G0MJW> We all saw 41625 but it must have burst just at the end of it.
[12:43] <navrac> and 41625 not complet
[12:44] <Colin-G8TMV> indeed
[12:44] <Darkside> this is why you should all be using 300 baud :P
[12:44] <fsphil-laptop> just a few more seconds would have done too
[12:44] <navrac> $$MONDO,473,12:38:22,+5226.0065,-00030.2457,41625,040.9,2Î3
[12:44] <Colin-G8TMV> I'm getting some good decodes again btw
[12:44] <navrac> yep i've had 10 greens in a row now
[12:44] <G4DPZ> can track mondo-1 down to about 5k
[12:44] <Upu_2E0UPU> ok switching back to MONDO-2
[12:45] <Darkside> about time i went to sleep
[12:45] <jcoxon> xaben1 still could do it
[12:45] <Darkside> cyas all in about 9 hours..

[12:45] <fsphil-laptop> lovely signal from xaben1 here
[12:46] <Matt_soton> are all non standard frequencies from rfm22bs?
[12:46] <Upu_2E0UPU> no some other transmitter
[12:46] <fsphil-laptop> 39km
[12:47] <G0MJW> Time to look at XABEN1

[12:48] <Upu_2E0UPU> will sit on MONDO-2 until itgets super interesting
[12:48] <fsphil-laptop> I wonder if I can receive xaben on the indoor antenna
[12:48] <navrac> ok - what should i e tracking now - currently on mondo
[12:48] <GW8RAK> So busy here I didn't hear the hailstones outside on the almost dry washing :(
[12:48] <fsphil-laptop> noooo
[12:48] <Upu_2E0UPU> lol
[12:48] <GW8RAK> Xaben is a strong signal
[12:48] <fsphil-laptop> it's decoding perfectly here
[12:48] <fsphil-laptop> which is nice
[12:48] <jcoxon> navrac, keep on mondo
[12:49] <jcoxon> xaben is covered right now
[12:49] <navrac> no prob
[12:49] <fsphil-laptop> 478km distance
[12:49] <fsphil-laptop> and getting closer
[12:49] <Upu_2E0UPU> just outside of OZ1SKY_Brian range :/
[12:49] <fsphil-laptop> 39.5km
[12:49] <OZ1SKY_Brian> yes not going to hear anything even if it gets to 45K
[12:50] <Upu_2E0UPU> MONDO is coming down too fast
[12:50] <fsphil-laptop> now that would be something

[12:51] <fsphil-laptop> you guys are making 40km look easy
[12:51] <Upu_2E0UPU> well XABEN has H2 and isn't a heavy payload so bets are on
[12:51] <fsphil-laptop> just past the 40km mark now
[12:51] <fsphil-laptop> here we go again :)
[12:51] <fsphil-laptop> this isn't healthy :p
[12:51] <GW8RAK> The signal is so strong it overpowers the regular noise bursts I get here
[12:52] <Colin-G8TMV> Upu_2E0UPU: the rate shown might be off because of so many bad decodes
[12:52] <Upu_2E0UPU> Colin-G8TMV it still too quick even with

[12:52] <G0MJW> Getting there...
[12:52] <Colin-G8TMV> did the chase team take a spade to dig it out?
[12:52] <number10_M0MDB> people just have to get in their cars and interfere... dont they know there is a record attempt on!
[12:52] <Upu_2E0UPU> lol
[12:53] <fsphil-laptop> much steadier signal than earlier
[12:53] <on5rz> xaben 622 km distance
[12:53] <Upu_2E0UPU> nice
[12:53] <fsphil-laptop> not much wind above 40km then
[12:53] <Upu_2E0UPU> not bad for 10mW on5rz :)
[12:53] <fsphil-laptop> whoa, decoding on5rz?
[12:53] <fsphil-laptop> impressive
[12:53] <OZ1SKY_Brian> number10_M0MDB when its over, its paybacktime, just put a strong carrier out and look out the window

[13:06] <jcoxon> it was teasing us
[13:06] <Darkside> now the question is, what made it float for a bit, then go up again..
[13:06] <jcoxon> now its just showing off
[13:06] <Upu_2E0UPU> just a bit
[13:06] <Darkside> Laurenceb: gravity waves?
[13:07] <Laurenceb> looks like it
[13:07] <kokey> I wonder if it's some kind of thermal
[13:07] <navrac> i think it was so many people urging it on....
[13:07] <G0MJW> cussedness
[13:07] <kokey> highish pressure thermal so the balloon doesn't pop
[13:07] <Darkside> i'm betting its a gravity wave
[13:07] <jcoxon> who knows at that altitudes
[13:07] <Darkside> they affect things at those heights
[13:08] <Darkside> hell, gravity waves cause disturbances in the ionosphere...
[13:08] <kokey> maybe space and time got bent so the GPS satellites are closer to it
[13:08] <Darkside> 41.8km...
[13:08] <Darkside> goddamn
[13:08] <G0MJW> tides
[13:08] <cuddykid> get moving chase car! :P
[13:08] <on5rz> god stretched out his hands
[13:08] <kokey> is this an h2 balloon?
[13:08] <Upu_2E0UPU> yes
[13:08] <OZ1SKY_Brian> Upu_2E0UPU wish it would have come abit closer to me, would have made a good distance
[13:08] <futurity> Corby perhaps is more dense, hence the float
[13:09] <Colin-G8TMV> 41.9k
[13:09] <G0MJW> more dense?
[13:09] <Darkside> yeah, waves of denser air
[13:09] <Upu_2E0UPU> less dense ?
[13:09] <GW8RAK> Some really international tracking of this one
[13:09] <Upu_2E0UPU> oh the air
[13:09] <futurity> more mass, so it counteracted the balloon's lift
[13:09] <Darkside> i.e. gravity waves
[13:10] <G0MJW> will it or wont it
[13:10] <futurity> mass not intelligence
[13:10] <navrac> ive got the tardis materialising playing in my office - and a tardis downstairs - i wonder if its warping space time
[13:10] <Upu_2E0UPU> Send this to Cornell : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tN9EC3Gy6Nk
[13:10] <futurity> can't decode now. has it burst?

[13:12] <jcoxon> as it used to not allow you above 40km

[13:17] <Darkside> its well and truly beaten that
[13:17] <Darkside> this is going to make things a lot harder for us!
[13:17] <Darkside> also, this balloon is totally going through gravity waves
[13:17] <GW8RAK> Wasn't there a ZP balloon which got to 43Km?
[13:17] <Upu_2E0UPU> and up we go
[13:17] <vk5gr> anyway - pulling the plug now - 7am start to get ready to fly horus 23
[13:17] <Upu_2E0UPU> damn going to have to put the national anthem on repeat
[13:17] <kokey> there was one that went up to 53km but not latex
[13:17] <Darkside> this is going way higher than you'd expect from just buoyancy oscillations
[13:18] <cuddykid> there are ZP balloons available to buy that claim 50+km
[13:18] <SpeedEvil> Yow. 42km
[13:18] <Upu_2E0UPU> going to be me collecting it at this rate
[13:18] <G0MJW> Floating at 42km
[13:18] <Darkside> haha there it is
[13:18] <Darkside> gravity waves i tells ya!
[13:19] <jcoxon> thats a good range for F5CT

[13:20] <G0MJW> Sorry - just noticed my client was offline
[13:20] <GW8RAK> Which one?
[13:20] <GW8RAK> Came across them this morning and want to play

[13:21] <Darkside> kokey: ooh
[13:21] <Darkside> i have one of those too
[13:21] <Darkside> i was going to test it out tomorrow on our launch
[13:21] <navrac> reaking its own records!
[13:21] <GW8RAK> Thanks. Found one on ebay for 12.99
[13:21] <kokey> well I get white noise, so it's a good start
[13:21] <Darkside> lol
[13:22] <GW8RAK> Listen to it long enough and you'll hear Elvis

[13:23] <Upu_2E0UPU> thats just chinese for lol
[13:23] <r2x0t> any float prediction?
[13:23] <kokey> I think someone should phone the leicester radio station in a bit
[13:23] <kokey> if it's going to fall in town
[13:23] <G0MJW> Oh - faded
[13:23] <Upu_2E0UPU> it won't land on Leicester

[14:41] <on5rz> complete LOS - good luck hunting
[14:41] <jcoxon> on5rz, thanks for tracking
[14:41] <fsphil-laptop> there, caught up
[14:41] <fsphil-laptop> what a flight!
[14:42] <on5rz> first time and by the look of it a nice one ..
[14:42] <fsphil-laptop> still partially decoding here
[14:42] <fsphil-laptop> although weakening fast
[14:42] <jcoxon> on5rz, what was your longest range of decode?
[14:43] <jcoxon> might be able to add it to the records
[14:43] <on5rz> height 16.589 @52.755 -1.95793
[14:44] <fsphil-laptop> aand it's pretty much gone here now
[14:45] <on5rz> 432.7km bearing 112°
[14:45] <fsphil-laptop> I was really surprised when I came back into the room and heard rtty
[14:45] <fsphil-laptop> was thinking I'd better get the car ready :)
[14:46] <on5rz> fsphil-laptop snr something 1/2 ?
[14:46] <jcoxon> on5rz, 7th
[14:46] <fsphil-laptop> snr is -16dB here now :)
[14:46] <fsphil-laptop> it's on the waterfall but I can't hear it
[14:47] <on5rz> ;-) ! last decode here was at snr1
[14:47] <WillDuckworth> it's swinging around a bit now i think

[14:47] <on5rz> the line on the tracker was right for my setup

[14:48] <Lunar_Lander> I just checked spacenear and I don't believe my eyes
[14:48] <Lunar_Lander> new UK or even world altitude record?
[14:49] <Lunar_Lander> hydrogen?
[14:49] <OZ1SKY_Brian> yep
[14:49] <Lunar_Lander> wow
[14:49] <OZ1SKY_Brian> yep to newq record
[14:49] <Lunar_Lander> UK or also world?
[14:49] <OZ1SKY_Brian> world
[14:49] <Lunar_Lander> YES!
[14:50] <OZ1SKY_Brian> why didnt you track?
[14:50] <fsphil-laptop> this is a solar system record!
[14:50] <SpeedEvil> Get pure protium. You don't want any duterium in your H2.
[14:50] <fsphil-laptop> well if you don't count the big japanese balloons :)
[14:50] <fsphil-laptop> signal's gone now totally from the waterfall
[14:50] <Lunar_Lander> I was asleep, sorry
[14:50] <Lunar_Lander> but wait
[14:50] <fsphil-laptop> closing down dl-fldigi. awesome
[14:51] <Lunar_Lander> arhab says CNSP-10 41619 m
[14:51] <Lunar_Lander> mondo is like 70 m below
[14:51] <fsphil-laptop> only 41.6km? pah
[14:51] <Lunar_Lander> but still
[14:51] <Lunar_Lander> awesome
[14:51] <OZ1SKY_Brian> so?
[14:51] <Lunar_Lander> it's still 2nd place :D
[14:51] <fsphil-laptop> you're missing the 42687m there Lunar_Lander ? :)
[14:51] <OZ1SKY_Brian> Xaben1 got to 42687
[14:51] <Lunar_Lander> oh wait
[14:51] <Lunar_Lander> there it is!!!
[14:51] <Lunar_Lander> YAY
[14:52] <fsphil-laptop> more than 1km higher
[14:52] <fsphil-laptop> after a bit of a tease
[14:52] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[14:52] <OZ1SKY_Brian> chill Lunar, you need to sit down with a brew and wienerschnitzel :-)
[14:52] <fsphil-laptop> it got to within a few metres of the record, and started descending
[14:53] <Lunar_Lander> xD yeah
[14:53] <Lunar_Lander> fsphil-laptop, yeah and then went into the float?
[14:53] <fsphil-laptop> more of a wobble Lunar_Lander
[14:53] <fsphil-laptop> it sort of wobbled its way up to 42.6km
[14:53] <Lunar_Lander> yeah
[14:53] Rob_M0DTS (57c262d3@gateway/web/freenode/ip. left irc: Quit: Page closed
[14:53] <fsphil-laptop> I guess that was from heating
[14:53] <Lunar_Lander> did it burst or did steves cutdown actuate?

[14:53] <fsphil-laptop> or stretch of the balloon
[14:53] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[14:53] <fsphil-laptop> burst
[14:53] <Lunar_Lander> ah
[14:53] <fsphil-laptop> there was no cutdown
[14:53] <Lunar_Lander> oh
[14:54] <Lunar_Lander> I thought steven puts on on all the XABEN
[14:54] <Lunar_Lander> *steve
[14:54] <Lunar_Lander> sorry
[14:54] <Lunar_Lander> cool! :)
[14:54] <Lunar_Lander> you know what we would need?
[14:54] <fsphil-laptop> rockets
[14:54] <Lunar_Lander> xD!
[14:54] <Lunar_Lander> some really big testing runs on balloon rubber
[14:54] <Lunar_Lander> like material testing
[14:55] <Lunar_Lander> to get tables and so on of its behaviour and properties
[14:55] <OZ1SKY_Brian> i think the test today pretty much said it, 2 ballons going +40
[14:55] <Lunar_Lander> yeah
[14:55] <F6AGV> well touchdown in few moment for xaben payload ?
[14:56] <fsphil-laptop> be interesting to see if CNSP try to follow it up
[14:56] <Lunar_Lander> it pushed back the border of what is possible
[14:56] <Lunar_Lander> I just wonder what is the next practical maximum
[14:56] <Lunar_Lander> if I would be bold, I'd say 45 km
[14:56] <OZ1SKY_Brian> no one going to recover xaben1?
[14:57] <F6AGV> 42687 meters high congratulations is it a world record ?
[14:57] <Lunar_Lander> yes

[15:07] <F6AGV> Jet Stream is coming soon 16 april 12Z !
[15:07] <OZ1SKY_Brian> some turn that speedometer of on daveake, so he can get there sooner :-)
[15:07] <Matt_soton> also being nice and big i can tap the e4k output should i be bothered to do somthing else iwht it
[15:07] <jcoxon> F6AGV, lets see what hte ground weather is like
[15:07] <jcoxon> if too much wind will postpone
[15:07] <jcoxon> http://ready.arl.noaa.gov/hysplitout/10368_trj001.gif
[15:08] <r2x0t> this is a good path
[15:08] <jcoxon> this will be another low altitude path
[15:08] <F6AGV> yes be carefull a strong wind for few days is coming
[15:08] <r2x0t> would help with tracking if it goes even further east
[15:08] <jcoxon> let me look at hte forecast
[15:09] <jcoxon> hmmmm 15mph on the ground
[15:09] <jcoxon> thats too much
[15:09] <jcoxon> lets postpone
[15:09] <r2x0t> :(
[15:09] <jcoxon> will launch another day when its better
[15:09] <F6AGV> My chase zone is LE TOUQUET and belgium border
[15:09] <jcoxon> the problem with this pico flights is that if they get damaged at they don't work well

[15:44] <Upu> we are in you sky stealing your records
[15:44] <r2x0t> that's why they have to go other way
[15:44] <Upu> yep looks like they are going to have to ask for access
[15:44] <Dan-K2VOL> boy there's a lot of UK receivers today
[15:45] <Upu> that Dan is why this is a good place to send your payload
[15:45] <OZ1SKY_Brian> oh its a power line, not a radio tower
[15:45] <Dan-K2VOL> hehe send me the radio upu!
[15:45] <Upu> its not done sorry
[15:45] <Dan-K2VOL> aww
[15:45] <Upu> was going to do PCB today

[15:46] <Upu> or a power line
[15:46] <Upu> as ground level at that location is 116meters and its at 114

[15:55] <Dan-K2VOL> well, the purpose of the training is so that people in other time zones can control it long after launch, when others here are sleeping or working
[15:55] <Dan-K2VOL> it's designed to fly for 72 hours

[17:19] <nibbler> has anybody yet tried some mechanical stabilisation when using a camera? all the videos i've seen so far suffer from quite intensive motion.

[17:20] Dan-K2VOL (Dan-K2VOL@ left #highaltitude.
[17:24] <nibbler> Hibby: indeed. imho there are two ways to solve it: attitude control, or multiple cameras/lenses to cover 360°/180° seamlessly and do postprocessing on the video material.
[17:32] <Hibby> nibbler: managing the attitude of the payload whilst keeping the weight down will be difficult
[17:32] <Hibby> we had a student group try aerodynamic methods, but obiously the atmosphere is too thin for that to beof any effect
[17:33] <Hibby> And we're not willing to use our reaction wheel design as it's in use in some cubesats and still owned by the uni

[17:41] <nibbler> it's a challenge though :-) i wonder if it's practical to use accelerometers and servos.
[17:41] <Hibby> depends
[17:41] <Hibby> what would you use the servos for?
[17:41] <Hibby> would they have a fast enough response?
[17:42] <Hibby> reaction wheels work well because of newton's third and the gyroscopic effect

[18:25] <fsphil-laptop> 42.6km

[18:25] <Lunar_Lander> Astrobiol, are you the Oliver?
[18:26] <Lunar_Lander> from the google group and so on
[18:26] <Astrobiol> So 140K ft! What is needed for it to be a verified record?
[18:27] <Astrobiol> That is I, Lunar_ . I've never been "The" anything though
[18:27] <fsphil-laptop> the arhab website needs prior notification of the launch (which was given) and for the telemetry to be received by a certain number of stations
[18:27] <Lunar_Lander> oh sorry Astrobiol

[20:57] <navrac> no its ok
[20:57] <navrac> just looking for a new outer housing. The last one got a bit beat up
[20:57] <jdtanner> 5g
[20:57] <jdtanner> :)
[20:58] <navrac> wow - far too much!
[20:58] <jdtanner> our dog chews them like a bone
[20:58] <jdtanner> so we've got loads :) of course&5g might be the smallest accurate weight my scales go to
[20:58] <navrac> polystyrene is a bit heavy- so i was thinking of what else i could use
[20:59] <jdtanner> well&cheap loo roll has worse cardboard tubes
[20:59] <jdtanner> i.e. thinne
[20:59] <jdtanner> r
[21:00] <jdtanner> sounds a bit daft, but what about an origami box?
[21:00] <jdtanner> http://www.metacafe.com/watch/2374322/make_a_strong_paper_box/
[21:00] <navrac> I think the solar cells really need to be horizontal- I was thinking of folding them round s loo roll
[21:03] <jdtanner> you could use waterproof paper

[21:05] <navrac> it would take me longer to make a box than it would to build all the electronics again
[21:05] <jdtanner> haha
[21:06] <navrac> I reckon I'd need a ream of paper till i got one that worked
[21:07] <jdtanner> I might make one&looks cool :)

[21:36] <Darkside> ok guys, clearing tracker
[21:38] <Upu> don't want to let Steve takes some screen shots ?
[21:38] <Darkside> i've left xaben up
[21:38] <Upu> ok
[21:38] <Upu> when are you launching ?
[21:38] <Darkside> 2.5 hours
[21:38] <Upu> good luck
[21:42] <Randomskk> Darkside: gonna beat the record? ;D
[21:42] <jdtanner> :)
[21:42] <Darkside> not today
[21:43] <Upu> the bar has been set awfully high no pun intended
[21:44] <Randomskk> what was on/what balloon xaben?
[21:45] <Darkside> Randomskk: guess
[21:46] <Randomskk> dunno, 1600? 2000? hwoyee I assume? minimal payload? hardly pico though?
[21:47] <Darkside> 1600g hwoyee
[21:47] <Upu> 1600g Hwoyee with H2
[21:48] <Randomskk> ah was about to ask h2/he
[21:48] <Randomskk> cool
[21:48] <Upu> Steves payloads aren't that heavy
[21:48] <Upu> he used the regulator Dave and I bought
[21:48] <Upu> So break out your 2000g and H2 if you want a stab at that
[21:48] <Upu> record
[21:49] <Randomskk> heh
[21:49] <griffonbot> Received email: Steve Aerospace "Re: [UKHAS] XABEN-24 Launch Announcement Saturday 14/04/2012"
[21:49] <Randomskk> what was the ascent rate?
[21:49] <Upu> typical H2 started slow
[21:50] <Upu> and builtup about 4.5 to 5.5 at the end I think
[21:50] <Randomskk> huh, I didn't realise the h2 was typically not a constant ascent
[21:50] <Upu> be interested to see the data when Steve posts it
[21:50] <Upu> yeah its a bit all over the place
[21:50] <Randomskk> all on habitat if you want I guess
[21:50] <Upu> was on our H2 launches too

[21:52] <Upu> bear in mind
[21:52] <Upu> Mondo using He and same balloons was <1km behind it
[21:53] <Randomskk> yea, possibly just the difference ;p
[21:53] <Upu> Mondo probably got the world record too , it was transmitting just as the balloon burst and it was over it
[21:53] <Randomskk> wow talk about excellent rx coverage
[21:53] <Upu> but string didn't complete
[21:53] <Randomskk> aww
[21:54] <Randomskk> feels so recently that we set the uk one at 36km
