[00:00] <Lunar_Lander> why are thermometers bad?
[00:00] <fsphil> I didn't say that
[00:01] <Lunar_Lander> rephrasing
[00:01] <Lunar_Lander> why are thermometers not really useful?
[00:01] <fsphil> they're not terribly useful. we already know it's cold up there
[00:01] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[00:01] <Hibby> fsphil: have shitty documentation
[00:03] <Hibby> I was working on something, and actually found at the point of setting the registers that the chip I was using didn't support high frequency crystals
[00:04] <Hibby> which was problematic, as it wasn't me that spec'd the board it's being put on and now they all have to be remade because the documentation suggests it'll work until it hits bsctl3, not even the first bsctl register, when it just says "not supported on x boards"
[00:04] <Hibby> which is helpful, given the data sheet is ONLY FOR THAT SINGLE MODEL
[00:05] <Hibby> s/boards/model
[00:05] <fsphil> well that is pretty bad. abuse deserved then :)

[02:38] <VK5KX> Michael VK5ZEA, Happy birthday, are you tracking on 434.078MHz LSB??
[02:38] <vk2awj> I am hearing an intermittent tone, just a broken vertical line on the waterfall
[02:40] <Michael_VK5ZEA> I have no trouble seeing the idle tone, dl-fldigi picks it out of the noise no trouble, but it can't see the data.
[02:41] <VK5ZRL> try 434.075 USB Michael..Happy Birthday :-)
[02:43] <Michael_VK5ZEA> There is too much RF noise here... the urban environment is a b!tch for weak signal work... and using an IC-R10 doesn't help either.

[07:51] <Darkside> nope
[07:51] <Darkside> i never flew that
[07:51] <Darkside> the twirly wirly track was a result of the radar reflector steering the payload on the way down
[07:51] <Darkside> we have brilliant video of it
[07:51] <Darkside> but that won't be ready for upload for a few weeks

[13:49] <fsphil> fldigi has this annoying feature now where it never reduces the filter bandwidth if you switch to a lower baud rate
[13:50] <fsphil> ah, there be rtty

[13:52] <fsphil> new bond movie title? :)
[13:53] <Upu_2E0UPU> only if he's a MI6's nerdy programmer
[13:53] <fsphil> I think someone is doing voice on 434.650
[13:53] <fsphil> nuts
[13:54] <number10_M0MDB> thats unfortunate
[13:55] <fsphil> switching to fm, see if I can hear what it is
[13:55] <Upu_2E0UPU> I don't think there is enough signal to decode ANU
[13:55] <fsphil> there's no repeaters on that channel near here
[13:55] <Upu_2E0UPU> need the FCD on a better antenna I think
[13:56] <number10_M0MDB> is signal not too good there Upu_2E0UPU
[13:56] <Upu_2E0UPU> no fine on the main rig but I have the FCD on the car mag mount sat in the window
[13:56] <number10_M0MDB> rocketboy is filling now
[13:56] <Upu_2E0UPU> its not ideal :)
[13:57] <G0DJA> Upu_2e0upu try dragging the filter in a bit in lowe waterfall - grab one of the filter shirts and pull inwards
[13:57] <fsphil> I can hear the rtty now
[13:57] <number10_M0MDB> you need to track your ublox module thats taped on to of ANU ;)
[13:57] <fsphil> whoever was talking has stopped
[13:57] <number10_M0MDB> wind just really picked uphere
[13:58] <Upu_2E0UPU> G0DJA like this : http://i.imgur.com/QSJeu.jpg ?
[13:58] <Upu_2E0UPU> lol thanks number10_M0MDB :)
[13:58] <G0DJA> upu_2e0upu you might want to put the LO below the signal as well
[13:58] <Upu_2E0UPU> LO ?
[13:59] <G0DJA> Local Oscilator (the upper frequency)
[13:59] <fsphil> woo, partial decodes
[13:59] <G0DJA> Yes, that looks narrow enough :-)
[13:59] <Upu_2E0UPU> not sure I understand G0DJA
[14:00] <G0DJA> Tune is where you RX
[14:00] <Upu_2E0UPU> oh what does that do
[14:00] <G0DJA> LO is the Local Oscillator - usually have LO below the RX freq...
[14:00] <Upu_2E0UPU> how much below ?
[14:00] <r2x0t> you rx in SSB, so you see RX frq +0Hz .... +3KHz or so
[14:00] <r2x0t> then you have decoder at say 1KHz
[14:00] <r2x0t> center frequency
[14:00] <G0DJA> Put LO on something like 434.600 and click on the signal above the LO freq
[14:01] <G0DJA> r2x0t not quite the same thing in SDR...
[14:01] <Upu_2E0UPU> ok s LO is 434.600
[14:01] <G0DJA> Got to go...
[14:01] <r2x0t> so LO is where you tune your radio, then you add/sub offset depending on mode (LSB/USB)
[14:01] <Upu_2E0UPU> Tune doesn't work though does it ? I tune using the Funcube Dongle Controller
[14:03] <Upu_2E0UPU> oh I got one
[14:03] <Upu_2E0UPU> woo
[14:03] <Upu_2E0UPU> probably more to do with the altitude than the fiddling
[14:03] <fsphil> you're doing better than me atm :)
[14:04] <craag> YAY successful decode with rtlsdr :D
[14:04] <fsphil> the air must attenuate the signal quite a bit. if it was just the earth blocking it, it'd jump to full strength within a few minutes

[15:23] <r2x0t> another way to calc would be: IF (X<0) X=65536-X
[15:24] <r2x0t> err IF (X<0) X=65536+X
[15:24] <r2x0t> because X is negative

[15:49] <fsphil> well, 434.199
[15:50] <daveake> Number10 says his jammer must have stopped
[15:50] <fsphil> lol
[15:51] <Upu_2E0UPU> haha
[15:51] <Upu_2E0UPU> what was he doing sitting there with an Audi keyfob going lock unlock lock unlock
[15:51] <fsphil> nice dual tracking Upu_2E0UPU
[15:51] <JFS1> If Buzz gets jammed again as soon as he passes 42km I'd start having suspicions.
[15:51] <Upu_2E0UPU> oh guys
[15:51] <Upu_2E0UPU> can we get someone else on XABEN pls
[15:52] <priyesh> Upu_2E0UPU: i'll move apex onto it

[15:52] <fsphil> tracking xaben
[15:53] <fsphil> I can only do one at a time
[15:53] <Upu_2E0UPU> as soon as you loose ANU if you could switch to BUZZ
[15:53] <Upu_2E0UPU> I'd stick with BUZZ for the moment fsphil
[15:53] <Upu_2E0UPU> oh its ok
[15:53] <fsphil> will do
[15:53] <Upu_2E0UPU> thats a nice spread
[15:54] <fsphil> these are only 100khz apart, just out of reach of the funcube dongle
[15:54] <priyesh> moved
[15:54] <Upu_2E0UPU> well yup I went for XABEN on the FCD and found BUZZ
[15:54] <Upu_2E0UPU> I thought it was XABEN tbh
[15:55] <fsphil> so did I
[15:55] <fsphil> I read the title wrong, tuned to 434.2 by mistake
[15:55] <r2x0t> ANU flying in completely opposite direction from prediction
[15:55] <fsphil> found a very fuzzy looking rtty signal
[15:55] <fsphil> but it's cleared up since then
[15:55] <fsphil> weird
[15:55] <fsphil> there might still be a radio fault
[15:56] <daveake> Think we need to move! It's 21km away
[15:56] <Laurenceb_> hope anu avoids those ponds
[15:56] <r2x0t> it will still turn to the east
[15:56] <Upu_2E0UPU> its not following the prediction daveake but I'd still stay put
[15:56] F5APQ (0205ddac@gateway/web/freenode/ip. left irc: Ping timeout: 245 seconds

[16:29] <fsphil> payload altitude normally does this near the balloons limits
[16:30] <Upu_2E0UPU> we could do with some of the closer stations on XABEN pls
[16:30] <SpeedEvil> If this was a hair further north - it would be audible over the whole UK.
[16:30] <Upu_2E0UPU> ah thats better
[16:30] <Upu_2E0UPU> thanks G8KNN-Jon
[16:30] <navrac> ok tuning
[16:31] <fsphil> buzz dropping fairly quickly there
[16:31] <Laurenceb_> so was xaben invalid or what?
[16:32] <fsphil> yea that was invalid
[16:32] <Laurenceb_> werent there 2 packets at that altitude?
[16:32] <Upu_2E0UPU> yeah sorry
[16:32] <Laurenceb_> 8bit checksum?
[16:32] <fsphil> fooled the 16-bit checksum
[16:32] <Upu_2E0UPU> I got overly excited
[16:32] <Laurenceb_> fair enough
[16:32] <Laurenceb_> we could extropolate from the packets we did get
[16:33] <Laurenceb_> looking at the graph it looked about 1km below
[16:33] <Laurenceb_> 42.7 or so
[16:33] <daveake> ok live video of the walk to the payload coming ...
[16:33] <Upu_2E0UPU> The burst poing was marked
[16:33] <Upu_2E0UPU> point
[16:33] <fsphil> buzz goig back up again
[16:33] <Upu_2E0UPU> in these logs
[16:33] <Laurenceb_> yeah, gnuplot the logs :P
[16:33] <Randomskk> there was a packet that was invalid but had a valid checksum?
[16:33] <fsphil> buzz goes up, buzz goes down ... (repeat)
[16:33] <Randomskk> every sodding record launch and I miss tracking it
[16:33] <r2x0t> buzz is just buzzing up there
[16:34] <navrac> its showing off
[16:34] <Upu_2E0UPU> passed my brain check sum Randomskk (i.e it look ok) but failed actual proper checksum
[16:34] <Laurenceb_> not in the resevoir :-S
[16:34] <Randomskk> oh right
[16:34] <Randomskk> ok
[16:34] <fsphil> above 43km again
[16:34] <r2x0t> yes, again going up
[16:34] <priyesh> how was it posted to habitat?
[16:34] <priyesh> doesn't the transition tool check the checksum?
[16:34] <gonzo_> xaben back temlem
[16:35] <fsphil> and pushing the record again
[16:35] <r2x0t> yeah
[16:35] <fsphil> 43050
[16:35] <gonzo_> and coming down
[16:35] <gonzo_> xaben coming down that was
[16:35] <r2x0t> 43059
[16:35] <fsphil> 069
[16:35] <Upu_2E0UPU> oh good point sorry I didn't notice it had posted the packet
[16:35] <Upu_2E0UPU> wierd
[16:35] <Upu_2E0UPU> have fun sorting that one out
[16:36] <Randomskk> habitat checks the checksum
[16:36] <Randomskk> for sure
[16:36] <Hibby> dat graph
[16:36] <priyesh> Upu_2E0UPU: how was it posted?
[16:36] <Upu_2E0UPU> from me
[16:36] <priyesh> hmm
[16:36] <Upu_2E0UPU> via dl-fldigi
[16:36] <Randomskk> sentence?
[16:36] <priyesh> odd
[16:36] <Upu_2E0UPU> $$$$$$XABEN,472,16:21:07,52.49425,-0.31204,43721,0.0,0.00,Descending*CECF
[16:36] <Upu_2E0UPU> unless it was a valid packet
[16:37] <Upu_2E0UPU> need to go afk for a bit
[16:37] <fsphil> it must be valid if dl-fldigi passed it
[16:37] <fsphil> oh no wait it doesn't
[16:37] <Randomskk> that's a valid checksum
[16:37] <Randomskk> ...
[16:37] <fsphil> either the program read it from the gps wrong
[16:38] <fsphil> or a 65536 to 1 chance of it being a false postive :)
[16:38] <r2x0t> 43721 is crazy
[16:38] <Randomskk> I don't think those are the odds
[16:38] <Randomskk> the packet looks entirely properly formatted
[16:38] <fsphil> probably not
[16:39] <Randomskk> if it was meant to be 43021 that's three bits in error
[16:39] <Randomskk> I think the odds are very good that the payload transmitted 43721
[16:39] <fsphil> yea
[16:39] <priyesh> also look at the packets around it
[16:39] <fsphil> much more likely
[16:39] <Randomskk> what caused that I don't know
[16:39] <priyesh> there's the possibility it is correct
[16:40] jackclark (~jackclark@ppp-94-66-243-58.home.otenet.gr) joined #highaltitude.
[16:40] <Randomskk> yes
[16:40] <Randomskk> there is
[16:40] <fsphil> 43106m
[16:40] <fsphil> (buzz)
[16:40] <Elmar_PD3EM> btw: a nice walk for the ANU chasers
[16:40] <priyesh> http://pastie.org/3940615
[16:40] <navrac> we need to look at th timing and previous readings to see if it was possible
[16:40] <jackclark> How'd it go daveake?
[16:40] <priyesh> the timing is plausible
[16:41] <Morseman> Is XABEN really coming down at 12m/s ?
[16:41] <navrac> balloon tangled in chute?
[16:41] <priyesh> 1333m up in 4 minutes
[16:41] <priyesh> 5.6m/s
[16:42] <Randomskk> so
[16:42] <navrac> well it was climbing at that sort of rate on the previous packets
[16:42] <Randomskk> the two packets before that one give an ascent rate of 5.25
[16:42] <fsphil> that's possible then
[16:42] <Randomskk> in other words if it maintained that ascent rate then the altitude is entirely believable
[16:42] <Randomskk> and given as the checksum was valid
[16:43] <Randomskk> it seems entirely plausible that it really did get 43721
[16:43] <G0DJA> How close will BUZZ get to me I wonder?
[16:44] <fsphil> at this rate, I wonder how close it will get to me too :)

[16:49] <Randomskk> what balloons/gas are these two ridiculous payloads doing? :P
[16:49] <r2x0t> nice video stream
[16:49] <r2x0t> walked right into it
[16:50] <daveake> yeah video a bit slow (here anyway
[16:50] <navrac> lost terlem on xaben
[16:50] <navrac> just carrier
[16:50] <Lunar_Lander> yeah what balloons were used?
[16:50] <x-f> daveake, it's way better than just text updates :)
[16:50] <fsphil> buzz's signal is slowly getting weaker here
[16:51] <fsphil> 2dB
[16:51] <navrac> xaben back
[16:52] <Lunar_Lander> yeah what balloons were used?
[16:52] <daveake> x-f yep!
[16:52] <Lunar_Lander> and what gas
[16:52] <Lunar_Lander> I'll repeat that question all the time XD
[16:52] <fsphil> we'll give you the PBH answer :p
[16:52] <Lunar_Lander> XD
[16:52] <navrac> from memory 100g hw h2
[16:52] <r2x0t> lol
[16:53] <gonzo_> lost xaben now, too weak.
[16:53] <fsphil> right, I'm going to eat. someone interesting always happens just after I leave
[16:54] <fsphil> 43204
[16:54] <fsphil> see, it's going up
[16:54] <fsphil> and I was only half way across the room
[16:54] <fsphil> 43217
[16:54] <Lunar_Lander> XD!
[16:54] <fsphil> 236
[16:54] <Lunar_Lander> well people
[16:54] <fsphil> the other rocket must have fired
[16:54] <Lunar_Lander> XD!
[16:54] <fsphil> ah crap, was I meant to talk about the rockets?
[16:54] <fsphil> 255
[16:54] <Lunar_Lander> I quite like that 50000 you can see on the altitude graph
[16:54] <Lunar_Lander> :D
[16:55] <fsphil> 263
[16:55] <fsphil> 50km is possible
[16:55] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[16:55] <fsphil> the japanese have shown that
[16:55] <Lunar_Lander> XD yea the 53
[16:55] <fsphil> 273
[16:55] <Lunar_Lander> 48 was possible already in 1968
[16:56] <fsphil> ok, descending again
[16:56] Action: fsphil goes for food.. again
[16:56] <daveake> ok back to the batmobiles
[16:56] <Upu_2E0UPU> someone told BUZZ it's done it can come back now ?
[16:56] <Upu_2E0UPU> located daveake ?
[16:56] <daveake> yes I said
[16:56] <daveake> ANU back in 1 piece
[16:56] <Upu_2E0UPU> I just got back
[16:56] <daveake> Camera still running
[16:56] <Upu_2E0UPU> super
[16:56] <G0DJA> When it goes over Melton Mowbray can we say it is "Way up pie" ?
[16:56] <daveake> lol
[16:56] <Lunar_Lander> xD
[16:56] <r2x0t> BUZZ saw highest packet from XABEN and now it's not going down until it gets higher than that :)
[16:57] <Lunar_Lander> ROFL
[16:57] <Lunar_Lander> r2x0t, can you see the Vaisala sounding results btw?
[16:57] <Lunar_Lander> or does one need the vaisala receiver
[16:57] <r2x0t> if you mean proper calibrated results, yes
[16:57] <fsphil> signal down to 0dB
[16:57] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[16:57] <r2x0t> sondemonitor does that
[16:57] <Lunar_Lander> because the GPS from Vaisala isn't the normal one but a doppler one
[16:58] <Lunar_Lander> and that needs that DigiCORA receiver
[16:58] <r2x0t> yes, you need RINEX data for it to work etc.
[16:58] <Lunar_Lander> I read
[16:58] <Lunar_Lander> ah
[16:58] <Lunar_Lander> how high do they go?
[16:58] <Lunar_Lander> is there a record as well?
[16:58] <r2x0t> depends, highest I saw was 40km
[16:58] <r2x0t> but most of the time 32km or so
[16:59] <Lunar_Lander> yeah
[16:59] <Lunar_Lander> I wonder where you can buy the RS-92
[16:59] <Lunar_Lander> on the lake constance flight 2010 they had a RS-92 onboard in a custom stryofoam box
[16:59] <r2x0t> cheapest is just to find it... but hard to do if they are not launching them around you
[16:59] <Lunar_Lander> yeah
[17:00] <Lunar_Lander> but aren't they unusable after landing?
[17:00] <r2x0t> not officially
[17:00] <Lunar_Lander> ah
[17:00] <r2x0t> they say it would not perform as designed and blah blah
[17:00] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[17:00] <r2x0t> but you can recalibrate sonde that was already flown on Vaisala ground checker machine
[17:01] <Upu_2E0UPU> I'd say XABEN got the record, but depends how Steve's code works
[17:01] <r2x0t> and fly it again
[17:01] <Lunar_Lander> yeah
[17:01] <fsphil> 433
[17:01] <priyesh> 43318
[17:01] <Lunar_Lander> where can one get that base machine?
[17:01] <Lunar_Lander> WOW
[17:01] <priyesh> buzz isn't leaving without a fight
[17:01] <Upu_2E0UPU> note the time I said [17:23] <Upu_2E0UPU> XABEN burst
[17:01] <r2x0t> Lunar_Lander: part of DigiCORA
[17:01] <fsphil> it's shooting up
[17:01] <Lunar_Lander> yeah
[17:01] <Lunar_Lander> really expensive I assume?
[17:01] <r2x0t> yeah
[17:01] <Lunar_Lander> :(
[17:01] <fsphil> 43392
[17:02] <r2x0t> BUZZ is at it again!
[17:02] <fsphil> and descending...
[17:02] <Upu_2E0UPU> Well unofficially 43721 to beat
[17:02] <fsphil> I can't go and eat while this is happening

[17:04] <Elmar_PD3EM> i like it fsphil :-) but it's not good for the rigs.... continuous statics now
[17:04] <fsphil> ok, going now. really this time

[17:05] <Lunar_Lander> wait
[17:05] <r2x0t> lol... choose your poison
[17:05] <Lunar_Lander> blue is the visual horizon?
[17:05] <r2x0t> yes
[17:05] <Lunar_Lander> that means BUZZ can see behind my house!
[17:06] <Lunar_Lander> XD
[17:06] <gonzo_> well, there is no sea near, so we can't use dave's track record to forecast!
[17:06] <cuddykid> buzz might actually fly overhead.. in notts atm
[17:07] <Elmar_PD3EM> there's a strange thing on spacenear.is with the blue circle......
[17:07] <Lunar_Lander> yeah
[17:07] <r2x0t> yes, it deforms depending on how you pan the map when it's unzoomed
[17:07] <Elmar_PD3EM> whem moving the map more to the north, the circle is getting bigger.....
[17:07] <gonzo_> buzz can pick up a pork pie on the way
[17:07] <SpeedEvil> Elmar_PD3EM: that's correct
[17:08] <SpeedEvil> Elmar_PD3EM: It's a projection oddity
[17:08] <G0DJA> Never mind see my house Lunar_Lander it may even land *on* my house at this rate...
[17:08] <Elmar_PD3EM> ok. ;-)
[17:08] <SpeedEvil> It's not really a circle - in reality - on that map projection
[17:08] <Lunar_Lander> ohhh
[17:08] <SpeedEvil> To do it 'properly' - you need to distort the circle to the map projection.
[17:08] <SpeedEvil> But that is complex and annoying.

[17:54] <fsphil> gone
[17:54] <cuddykid> damn
[17:54] <fsphil> could it be an altitude thing?
[17:54] <daveake> temperature possible
[17:54] <r2x0t> or temperature
[17:54] <r2x0t> around 10km is the coldest part of flight
[17:55] <daveake> Well we'll keep going that way and hope it comes back on
[17:55] <fsphil> yea, the altitude is different from the ascent

[17:55] <daveake> what alt did it come back on at on the way up?
[17:55] <r2x0t> temp dropped to 0C just before it went off
[17:55] <daveake> hmm
[17:56] <cuddykid> if it's the same as mine - I don't think it's temp or altitude related
[17:56] <daveake> I don't think it's the same
[17:56] <fsphil> yea unlikely
[17:56] <daveake> dodgy chinese arduino
[17:57] <daveake> :p
[17:57] <fsphil> don't know whta altitude it came back on at as nobody was listening to it

[17:57] <fsphil> it was rediscovered by accident

[17:57] <cuddykid> daveake: was this a 'fake' one?!
[17:57] <daveake> ok ta
[17:57] <daveake> it's a cheap one yeah
[17:57] <cuddykid> nice, worked well so far
[17:58] <cuddykid> just the most crucial bit of the flight :(
[17:58] <daveake> well let's hope it comes back on
[17:58] <fsphil> tuned around a bit, don't see anything
[17:58] <cuddykid> yep
[17:58] <fsphil> was hoping maybe it just shifted

[17:58] <fsphil> when I first found the buzz signal earlier there was a lot of noise in it
[17:59] <fsphil> the two bands where wide and undefined
[17:59] <fsphil> it looked more like a 100 baud signal
[18:00] <fsphil> shutting down, even if it comes back it's outta my range
[18:00] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[18:01] <daveake> Do we have a landing spot prediction?
[18:02] <Lunar_Lander> on the tracker the prediction is a LAKE
[18:02] <Lunar_Lander> west of New Brinsley
[18:02] <r2x0t> on the tracker prediction is WRONG
[18:02] <Lunar_Lander> ah
[18:02] <Lunar_Lander> phew
[18:02] <r2x0t> because it was just after GPS died
[18:02] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[18:03] <Lunar_Lander> lets write like THIS
[18:03] <Lunar_Lander> hope they find the PAYLOAD
[18:03] <Lunar_Lander> xD
[18:03] <daveake> Well for that I need a prediction please and some luck!
[18:03] <r2x0t> before, when it was ok, it predicted landing north of Mansfield
[18:04] <cuddykid> daveake: about a mile south of Hucknall
[18:04] <cuddykid> or Hucknall itself

[18:33] <Upu> so whats the thoughts on XABEN then ?
[18:33] <daveake> How did the live on-foot bit go?
[18:33] <Lunar_Lander> I mean I got RealTerm from sourceforge
[18:33] <Lunar_Lander> and I got ubuntu
[18:33] <fsphil> went well daveake, although a bit slow
[18:33] <Lunar_Lander> and I wanted to check the installer on virustotal

[18:33] <Upu> go report it on Sourceforge then Lunar_Lander :)
[18:33] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[18:34] <Lunar_Lander> what do you think about that result? 3/42
[18:34] <Upu> we need to speak to Steve to see how his code works
[18:34] <r2x0t> lol 3/42... that must be virus... for sure
[18:35] <r2x0t> there is so many signatures in typical AV, it's really hard not to hit one with compiled exe
[18:35] <Lunar_Lander> ah

[20:02] <r2x0t> lol... where are you from?
[20:04] <fsphil> you can buy them of ebay
[20:04] <fsphil> I must track the local one tonight
[20:04] <fsphil> the winds should push it my direction
[20:04] <r2x0t> got only one so far this year... bad winds so far
[20:05] <r2x0t> not calm enough to get local sonde land nearby
[20:05] <fsphil> I'm north west of the launch site, so they rarely get this far
[20:05] <r2x0t> but not strong enough to fly german sonde here
[20:06] <fsphil> read you saying that they repeat LW signals, that's pretty neat

[20:06] <fsphil> we don't have analogue ones here so I can test it, but neat that you can hear the stations through it
[20:07] <r2x0t> they will stop producing analogue sondes this year
[20:07] <r2x0t> it will be all SGP/AGPs
[20:07] <Lunar_Lander> r2x0t, germany
[20:07] <Lunar_Lander> I found only RS-80 on ebay
[20:08] <fsphil> my colinear isn't all that good at tracking them, think they're too nearby
[20:08] <r2x0t> germany launches tons of sondes every day... too hard to find?
[20:09] <r2x0t> otherwise I can probably send few your way if you pay for postage etc.
[20:09] <r2x0t> fsphil: I also use collinear

[20:10] <r2x0t> better to get small yagi and point it up
[20:10] <r2x0t> also I use preamp for it, that helps a lot
[20:10] <fsphil> I got a better signal with a little magmount vertical
[20:10] <fsphil> yea
[20:11] <r2x0t> and AR5000 or Icom R2500, connected to SDR...that also should help a bit

[20:12] <fsphil> I'll try with the colinear again
[20:13] <r2x0t> I usually check habhub predictor for few next days, then decide if it's even worth listening
[20:13] <fsphil> although if it does come near me I probably won't nee dit
[20:14] <r2x0t> yes
[20:14] <r2x0t> also depends where it lands, you may hear it on ground from good distance
[20:14] <fsphil> yea I've had that happen with my own payloads
[20:14] <r2x0t> I heard one hanging on a tree from almost 20km
[20:15] <fsphil> I've lost the link to the site I had with the launch sites
[20:16] <fsphil> ah got it
[20:16] <G0DJA> I think BUZZ went too high too close for my vertical - not very good signals considering not far away
[20:17] <Lunar_Lander> r2x0t, yea
[20:17] <G0DJA> Didn't have time to dig the portable 70cm beam out to test theory though
[20:18] <G0DJA> Was better when it dropped height
[20:18] <fsphil> I noticed it getting weaker as it ascended for some reason
[20:19] <fsphil> but only very slightly
[20:19] <fsphil> it was a remarkably stable signal
[20:19] <Lunar_Lander> hey!
[20:19] <Lunar_Lander> I found the RS-92 on ebay
[20:19] <fsphil> well tonight's launch is landing nowhere near me
[20:19] <G0DJA> Yea, not bad stability but at over 40k high should have been a better signal only 90km away...
[20:20] <G0DJA> Unless a) the clouds had large attenuation or b) I've not connected something properly again
[20:20] <G0DJA> b) is always a possibility
[20:20] <fsphil> probably just an effect of the antenna on the payload
[20:21] <fsphil> hmm.. all the sonde launches for the next few days are rubbish
[20:21] <fsphil> I'll not bother
[20:21] <Lunar_Lander> r2x0t, the one guy on ebay says the RS-92 can easily be converted to 433 MHz
[20:21] <Laurenceb_> back
[20:21] <r2x0t> false
[20:21] <G0DJA> I think there's one near Nottingham but lost the link
[20:21] Action: Laurenceb_ waves hello to balloon
[20:21] <r2x0t> unless you replace transmitter board
[20:21] <fsphil> the Horus team re-lanuched a radiosonde
[20:21] <fsphil> retuned for the 70cm band
[20:21] <Lunar_Lander> ah
[20:22] <r2x0t> you can tune it to 420
[20:22] <r2x0t> with luck
[20:22] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[20:22] <Laurenceb_> was in garden working
[20:22] <r2x0t> but really not to 433
[20:22] <Lunar_Lander> ah
[20:22] <Laurenceb_> didnt see any balloon overhead :P
[20:22] <r2x0t> unless PLL is running on magic :)
[20:22] <Laurenceb_> i should have looked
[20:22] <Laurenceb_> recovered?
[20:23] <fsphil> all but xaben recovered
[20:23] <fsphil> last report was that was in a very tall tree

[20:23] <Laurenceb_> from graph?
[20:23] <r2x0t> max alt looks plausible
[20:24] <Elmar_PD3EM> not a good tree to climb... http://maps.google.nl/maps?q=52.57238,-0.34339&hl=nl&ll=52.572166,-0.343559&spn=0.001314,0.002849&sll=52.132633,5.291266&sspn=5.409732,11.66748&t=h&z=19&layer=c&cbll=52.572037,-0.343402&panoid=EPJJm5ur5JYmy2d-r8Cc0g&cbp=12,351.86,,0,-3.98
[20:24] <Laurenceb_> ah least there is a pub
[20:24] <fsphil> the arhab guys at least require a couple of positions from the altitude
[20:24] <Laurenceb_> yeah was just wondering
[20:24] <Laurenceb_> i guesstimated 42.7
[20:25] <Laurenceb_> its not _that_ bad a tree
[20:25] <G0DJA> Can't find RS-92 on ebay other than a load of car parts
[20:25] <fsphil> Friday night's sonde launch will fly directly over my house according to the predictor
[20:25] <fsphil> which means it won't
[20:26] <r2x0t> predictor always lies, but sometimes that lie is acceptable
[20:27] <fsphil> 5 days out is only sometimes right
[20:27] <fsphil> but I'll keep watching the 2 day predictions
[20:27] <fsphil> all the ones I've track before landed in the sea or scotland
[20:30] <G0DJA> I hate having new PCs

[20:37] <Elmar_PD3EM> I should have stuck with sendmail
[20:38] <G0DJA> I even remember using a PC package that wasn't Windows based on a DOS "laptop" from Toshiba that had a built in screen, keyboard and tracker (not a mouse) weighed as much as a breeze block
[20:39] <Elmar_PD3EM> that where those big cases with the keyboard in the top cover and a small orange screen ;-)
[20:39] <G0DJA> I even put NOS on it and ran a IP over radio account for a while LOL
[20:39] <Elmar_PD3EM> and after all that new and fast stuff where sending 8 or 16 MHz controlers to near space ;-)

[20:49] <Laurenceb_> heh record is beaten by almost 1Km now
[20:49] <Laurenceb_> CNSP by way over 1km
[20:50] <G0DJA> Still can't find where the list of uploaded records for DL-FLDigi goes. LOL
[20:51] <fsphil> they go to the habhub server
[20:51] <fsphil> not sure there is a simple list as there was for the old system

[21:04] <Upu> was very odd
[21:04] <Upu> great Daveke got Buzz back
[21:05] <Upu> anyone want to make a call on that ?

[21:08] <Upu> Well the issue is Steve's tracker was playing up
[21:08] <Upu> it stop transmitting
[21:08] <fsphil> http://ukhas.org.uk/general:uk_records
[21:08] <fsphil> so did buzz
[21:08] <Upu> then came back with the following sequence : http://pastie.org/3940615
[21:08] <Upu> then the very next telemetry line one under it
[21:09] <fsphil> I'd love to trust that line
[21:09] <fsphil> but it's all very isolated
[21:09] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[21:10] <fsphil> whereas with buzz there is no doubt
[21:11] cuddykid (~acudworth@ left irc: Quit: cuddykid
[21:11] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[21:12] <fsphil> had I not seen buzz going above 43km I would have said it was impossible
[21:12] <Lunar_Lander> yeaj
[21:12] <Lunar_Lander> yeah
[21:14] <fsphil> the last string had at least a few preceeding it: $$XABEN,469,16:17:16,52.48139,-0.28616,42388,0.0,0.00,4;5;FA0;0.8*39C6
[21:14] <G0DJA> Personally, I think BUZZ is a solid contender but I have to say that, unfortunately, what I did see from XABEN made me wonder if it was actually so
[21:15] <fsphil> besides, I suspect Steve will repeat it soon enough :)
[21:15] <G0DJA> The variation either side seemed a bit suspect, but I'm not an expert of course
[21:16] <fsphil> it does fit in with the altitude graph though
[21:16] <Lunar_Lander> and what happened on Ava?
[21:16] <fsphil> int16_t happened :)
[21:17] <G0DJA> Like I say fsphil, I'm not an expert, it's like watching a race on the telly and the timing system throws a bit of a wobbler. Do you trust it for a world record?
[21:17] <fsphil> 32767 is the highest value int16_t can store
[21:17] <fsphil> add one and you get -32768
[21:17] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[21:18] <Lunar_Lander> what do you need to do to avoid that?
[21:18] <fsphil> either uint16_t or one of the 32-bit intss
[21:18] <Lunar_Lander> ah
[21:18] <fsphil> int32_t probably the best bet
[21:18] <G0DJA> From what I'm told, and the graphs, that seemed to be a problem on ANU today as well

[21:45] <Lunar_Lander> fsphil, still on?
[21:47] <fsphil> maybe
[21:47] <Lunar_Lander> XD!
[21:52] <gonzo_> been out for a while. I take it good recoverirs in this evev;s three launches?
[21:52] <fsphil> good coverage on all three it seems
[21:53] <fsphil> upu did some conducting
[21:53] <gonzo_> all recovered?
[21:53] <fsphil> xaben was in a tree, not sure what's happened there
[21:53] <gonzo_> yep, I was directed for best effectivness
[21:53] <fsphil> the other two recovered
[21:53] <gonzo_> I saw it on the track. Assumed the telem at the end was dave's chase far
[21:53] <gonzo_> car
[21:53] <gonzo_> I see the exact tree
[22:01] <gonzo_> I bet BUZZ's landing was a bit of a worrying one. Looks like it just middes nottingham!
[22:01] <gonzo_> missed
[22:02] <gonzo_> and a new record!! That'll take a bit of beating
[22:06] <fsphil> xaben might have
[22:07] <Upu> I would call Xaben got it
[22:07] <Lunar_Lander> yeah
[22:07] <Upu> 43721 meters
[22:08] <Upu> but we need to speak to Steve to clarify how his code works
[22:10] <Lunar_Lander> Upu, fsphil got a payload idea
[22:14] <gonzo_> ah I didn't motice that. Two records breakers.
[22:19] <Upu> technically 3
[22:19] <Upu> ANU-2 was highest camera payload
[22:28] <gonzo_> a good day's work!
[22:29] <Lunar_Lander> yeah

[22:39] <daveake> Evening all
[22:39] <fsphil> wb daveake
[22:39] <daveake> xd
[22:39] <daveake> I'm f...., er, tired :)
[22:40] <Lunar_Lander> wb DanielRichman
[22:40] <Lunar_Lander> ROFL!
[22:40] <Lunar_Lander> congrats daveake
[22:40] <daveake> cheers
[22:40] <daveake> or prost!
[22:41] <gonzo_> yep, congrats to the whole team
[22:41] <Lunar_Lander> :)
[22:42] <Lunar_Lander> I got a innovative payload idea but no one wanted to hear it yet
[22:42] <Lunar_Lander> :P
[22:43] <fsphil> you don't need permission to talk here :p
[22:43] <Lunar_Lander> XD!
[22:45] <Lunar_Lander> it is based on the work of this man https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Erich_Regener
[22:46] <daveake> I dunno ... I beat Steve's previous record by nearly a kilometre, and STILL didn't get the record :p
[22:46] <Lunar_Lander> xD
[22:47] <fsphil> you had it briefly
[22:47] <Lunar_Lander> he built a small greenhouse for his payload of wood beams and then covered in cellophane and that actually kept a positive temperature inside according to thermographs that were flown
[22:47] <daveake> A great day though - fun launches with a great set of people, fun chases, records galore, and successful recoveries
[22:47] <fsphil> xaben recovered?
[22:47] <fsphil> last we heard it was in a tree
[22:47] <daveake> Nope
[22:47] <daveake> Yep
[22:47] <daveake> The ones I chased we recovered :D
[22:48] <Lunar_Lander> xD
[22:48] <Lunar_Lander> yea and my idea was
[22:48] <daveake> Yeah I called Steve loads of times. Eventually got to speak with him and he'd sadly given up
[22:48] <Lunar_Lander> balsa + cellophane = win (?)
[22:49] <daveake> Buzz landed in a perfect place - top of a small hill with a great view over a valley
[22:49] <daveake> That explains why we picked the signal up frmo 4.6km
[22:49] <Lunar_Lander> yay
[22:49] <daveake> Only 200m from parking places too
[22:50] <daveake> I'll have to sort out a car charger for the 817 as the rechargeables gave up halfway through the day
[22:50] <daveake> Swapped to AAs
[22:50] <fsphil> how'd the 817 work out for you in the end? (apart from the batts)
[22:50] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[22:50] <daveake> Worked well
[22:50] <daveake> Pleased with my purchase :)
[22:50] <jonsowman> congrats on today daveake
[22:50] <jonsowman> another successful flight :)
[22:51] <daveake> Buzz is going in the freezer soon ... see if I can learn mych about what it did
[22:51] <daveake> Cheers :)
[22:51] <daveake> Yes .... very :)
[22:51] <fsphil> yes, the noisy signal and silence was very odd
[22:51] <Lunar_Lander> :P
[22:51] <Lunar_Lander> that is how you keep a secret
[22:51] <Lunar_Lander> just talk into a conversation
[22:51] <Lunar_Lander> :D
[22:51] <daveake> I was convinced the rfm22 had reset, but the only way back from that is if the processor reboots
[22:51] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[22:52] <daveake> Which I know it did later on but don't think it did earlier.
[22:52] <gonzo_> that was while they were uplinking the new firmware with the adjusted alt calibration values!
[22:52] <daveake> I have some work to do starting with the logs
[22:52] <jonsowman> it was only a matter of time until the conspiracy theories
[22:52] <gonzo_> hehe
[22:52] <daveake> lol
[22:52] <jonsowman> altitude *= 1.1;
[22:52] <jonsowman> oh no, how did that line appear in the code? :\
[22:53] <daveake> lol
[22:53] <fsphil> a faulty capacitor might cause the noise I seen at certain temperatures
[22:53] <daveake> I said to people earlier that I was going to start a conspiracy theory that Buzz didn't come back online, but was a separate flight with faked GPS :D
[22:53] <gonzo_> I went low tech in my code, I just parsed for the commar delimiters then copy the nmea strings
[22:53] <jonsowman> you weren't wrong
[22:54] <fsphil> Buzz just went home briefly
[22:54] <gonzo_> stopped off in a pub for a crafty couple
[22:55] <daveake> :D

[22:56] <daveake> Macdonalds in the end
[22:56] <gonzo_> ugh, well makes a change from food I suppose
[22:56] <fsphil> the flaw with weechat .. it splits urls
[22:58] <Lunar_Lander> any thoughts on my idea :P?
[22:59] <daveake> true
[23:00] <fsphil> the good thing about weechat, it tells you when it's midnight
[23:00] <fsphil> you drew eyes onto it? :)
[23:00] <Lunar_Lander> xD
[23:01] <daveake> Yes, I didn't put real eyes on it (weight-saving feature)
[23:02] <fsphil> wise
[23:02] <fsphil> they don't work well at -50c anyway

[23:03] <daveake> CNSP will get bumped down the list when ARHAB updates this week :)
[23:04] <daveake> I think the live video feed worked well today
[23:04] <fsphil> very
[23:04] <fsphil> the view from the chase car was quite impressive
[23:04] <daveake> :)
[23:05] <daveake> The webcam i bought has a camera tripod mount, and I found a windscreen camera mount in my box of useful stuff
[23:05] <daveake> 3G worked very well today - just 2 dropouts
[23:06] <gonzo_> I was watching maps trying to see the road bridges coming.
[23:06] <fsphil> dongle or phone?
[23:06] <daveake> dongle
[23:06] <fsphil> nice
[23:06] <fsphil> my dongle has gradually got deaf
[23:06] <gonzo_> btw, what was your 3g useage on the tv stream
[23:06] <r2x0t> maybe add some external gsm antenna
[23:07] <r2x0t> usually there is connector of some sort
[23:07] <daveake> dongle in a 3g access point. That delivers internet via wifi to everything else in the car
[23:07] <fsphil> I got an antenna for it, but the signal is actually worse through it
[23:07] <r2x0t> heh
[23:07] <fsphil> tbh I don't think the antenna port is even connected
[23:07] <Lunar_Lander> wb r2x0t
[23:07] <daveake> dunno about usage - I have a t-mobile sim with "all you can eat in a day for £1"
[23:07] <daveake> Doesn't tell me how much I used
[23:07] <fsphil> that's an oddly good deal
[23:07] <r2x0t> that's good deal
[23:07] <daveake> And I didn't check the AP to find out
[23:08] <gonzo_> interesting dave
[23:08] <fsphil> giffgaff have an unlimited option for £10, lasts a month
[23:08] <r2x0t> here, it would be all you can eat, except after 100MB it will cost 10euro for every next 10MB you use
[23:08] <daveake> Yeah, if you get their "broadband sim" it's £2, but their phone sims it's £1
[23:08] <fsphil> seems t-mobile have the better deal
[23:08] <daveake> For rare use it's great
[23:08] <Laurenceb_> are the photos retreived?
[23:09] <fsphil> I might get that for the dongle, and keep giffgaff on the phone
[23:09] <fsphil> need a new dongle though
[23:09] <daveake> The dongle has an aerial socket so I plug in a rooftop aerial
[23:09] <fsphil> that's what I was trying to do last time
[23:09] <daveake> photos - only ANU had a camera, and that worked so no doubt number10 will be uploading during the week
[23:09] <Laurenceb_> cool
[23:10] <Laurenceb_> will look forward to that
[23:10] Action: Laurenceb_ zzz
[23:10] <daveake> We all have photos of the launch and chase of course
[23:10] <daveake> I'll upload mine tomorrow
[23:10] <gonzo_> was anu in a tree?
[23:10] <daveake> No, field
[23:10] <daveake> xaben in a tree
[23:10] <r2x0t> <number10_M0MDB> pic from anu - cant really see waht i am doing so may not be good http://i.imgur.com/aBr3m.jpg
[23:10] <daveake> ANU was a fair walk from the csar
[23:10] <gonzo_> ah, so many flights I'm getting confused
[23:10] <gonzo_> easy recovery?
[23:11] <daveake> BUZZ was 200m from the car (in a straight line - maybe 350 the way we had to go)
[23:11] <Lunar_Lander> cool
[23:11] <daveake> Was sat ina perfect place for the signal to travel far - top of a hill facing a valley
[23:12] <r2x0t> ANU was in a field, just not as accessible by roads, so longer walk
[23:12] <daveake> Hence we got the signal nearly 5km away
[23:12] <gonzo_> the tree landing xaben?
[23:12] <daveake> signal @ 5km = tree, normally :p
[23:12] <daveake> No - Buzz - on a hill
[23:12] <gonzo_> easy tree recovery
[23:12] <fsphil> great pic from anu
[23:12] <daveake> XABEN dunno how far away the signal got
[23:12] <r2x0t> XABEN is still on a tree
[23:13] <gonzo_> ah ok
[23:13] <daveake> We chased ANU then BUZZ; Steve chased XABEN
[23:13] <gonzo_> you get gain from trees. An extra tree dB
[23:13] <gonzo_> (groan)
[23:13] <daveake> Was going to help Steve out with that but couldn't get through to him (no signal on his phone)
[23:13] <daveake> lol

[23:14] <Lunar_Lander> XD!
[23:15] <daveake> Better than landing at a police station ...
[23:15] <daveake> ... special branch
[23:15] <fsphil> at least they'd treet you well
[23:15] <r2x0t> or minefield
[23:15] <daveake> oh look is that the time? :p
[23:15] <Lunar_Lander> lol
[23:15] <Lunar_Lander> time?
[23:16] <Lunar_Lander> OUTATIME
[23:16] <daveake> Time is an illusion; launch time especially so
[23:16] <gonzo_> sorry I've only just twigged what you said
[23:16] <r2x0t> launch time is very relative
[23:16] <SpeedEvil> Damn.
[23:16] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[23:16] <SpeedEvil> Just slept 6PM to now.
[23:16] <Lunar_Lander> are you up to discuss my idea?
[23:16] <gonzo_> sas that hoopy frood
[23:16] <Lunar_Lander> oh
[23:17] <gonzo_> a combat kip!
[23:17] <fsphil> you've not got to the root of the issue gonzo_
[23:17] Action: SpeedEvil had his sleep-cycle sort-of-sorted.
[23:17] <Lunar_Lander> oh
[23:17] <daveake> Shame Steve had to leave that payload
[23:17] <gonzo_> leaf it out!
[23:17] <daveake> ^^ mine better
[23:17] <daveake> :p
[23:17] <Lunar_Lander> xD
[23:17] <fsphil> I seed what you did there
[23:17] <r2x0t> lol
[23:17] <gonzo_> agreed two all
[23:17] Action: Lunar_Lander hands out beer to everyone
[23:17] <daveake> glug glug
[23:18] <fsphil> I'll just have a coke
[23:18] <gonzo_> just planting the idea in my head

[23:18] <gonzo_> (I'll fill the whisky glass)
[23:18] <Lunar_Lander> xD
[23:18] <fsphil> you can't conker them all
[23:18] <Lunar_Lander> so you know that Regener gave me the idea
[23:18] <Lunar_Lander> make a wooden frame
[23:19] <Lunar_Lander> cover it with cellophane
[23:19] <gonzo_> oak kak!
[23:19] <gonzo_> y
[23:19] <Lunar_Lander> and that is then a "greenhouse"thing which gave him, according to his thermographs, positive temperatures inside
[23:19] <SpeedEvil> Of these puns I am sick no more!
[23:19] <Lunar_Lander> and as we got balsa and stuff I thought if that is a good idea today still
[23:19] <fsphil> I'm suppose to be asleep
[23:20] <fsphil> my alarm is very unforgiving
[23:20] <daveake> I'm bushed
[23:20] <gonzo_> puns are ok, if you can stivk at it
[23:20] <gonzo_> stick
[23:20] <gonzo_> (or learn to type)
[23:20] <Lunar_Lander> xD
[23:20] <daveake> There's a grain of truth there
[23:20] <fsphil> I can't remember what twiggered this now
[23:20] <gonzo_> I'll lend you an ear
[23:21] <gonzo_> need to stem this
[23:21] <daveake> It'll knot go any further
[23:21] <gonzo_> last one too you dave
[23:22] <Lunar_Lander> daveake, can you tell me the balloon specs?
[23:23] <daveake> specs?
[23:23] <daveake> big and round
[23:23] <Lunar_Lander> yea, hwoyee or totex and the weight and H2 or He
[23:23] <Lunar_Lander> xD!
[23:23] <daveake> can't say :p
[23:23] <Lunar_Lander> :P why?
[23:24] <daveake> can't say
[23:24] <Lunar_Lander> ah
[23:24] <daveake> XD
[23:24] Action: Lunar_Lander writes down "Ammonia" as inflation gas
[23:24] <Lunar_Lander> :D
[23:24] <gonzo_> given the records that people are gettig with Hwoyee rubber, that company should start making condoms
[23:25] <Lunar_Lander> XD
[23:25] <fsphil> maybe they do
[23:25] <Lunar_Lander> you know back at Horus 16
[23:25] <Lunar_Lander> like the day before, there was in the paper that south africa banned the import of chinese condoms
[23:25] <Lunar_Lander> xD
[23:26] <gonzo_> hehe, then these chinees must have bloody big willies!
[23:26] <daveake> Steve this morning: "I don't think I'll bother launching today - those clouds will stop anyone getting a record"
[23:26] <Lunar_Lander> ROFL!
[23:26] <r2x0t> lol
[23:27] <gonzo_> the force is strong in this one
[23:27] <fsphil> these where special clouds
[23:27] <Lunar_Lander> xD
[23:27] <fsphil> after all, they where floating
[23:27] <Lunar_Lander> <Lunar_Lander> so you know that Regener gave me the idea
[23:27] <Lunar_Lander> <Lunar_Lander> make a wooden frame
[23:27] <Lunar_Lander> <Lunar_Lander> cover it with cellophane
[23:27] <Lunar_Lander> <Lunar_Lander> and that is then a "greenhouse"thing which gave him, according to his thermographs, positive temperatures inside
[23:27] <Lunar_Lander> <Lunar_Lander> and as we got balsa and stuff I thought if that is a good idea today still
[23:28] <daveake> clouds with extra #woo woo
[23:28] <fsphil> woo, virtualbox working on my laptop
[23:29] <Lunar_Lander> xD
[23:29] <fsphil> the woo woo is important stuff
[23:29] <fsphil> I'm gonna try anyway but I'm pretty sure I've no hope
[23:29] <Lunar_Lander> but Brian Cox said there is no woo woo?
[23:29] <fsphil> but it'll be fun to give it a go
[23:30] <fsphil> Brian Cox is just an actor
[23:30] <Lunar_Lander> xD I mean the professor
[23:30] <fsphil> he's a professor now? sheesh, he didn't seem that smart in x-men
[23:30] <daveake> since then, things have only got better
[23:31] <fsphil> you make one indestructible solder with spikes coming out of his hands, and suddenly you're the bad guy
[23:31] <Lunar_Lander> xD fsphil I mean the other guy
[23:31] <fsphil> wolverine?
[23:32] <fsphil> he's pretty cool, but would be useless at a hab launch
[23:32] <Lunar_Lander> no the completely other brian cox from manchester
[23:32] <Lunar_Lander> xD!
[23:32] <fsphil> wolverine, don't hold that balloon. and no, you can't smoke
[23:32] <Lunar_Lander> xD!
[23:32] <daveake> lol
[23:33] <gonzo_> sounds more like blade runner
[23:33] <r2x0t> last words: "what?! I thought you use helium"
[23:33] <daveake> Some of them might be much more useful when recovering payloads
[23:33] <Lunar_Lander> xD
[23:33] <Lunar_Lander> btw
[23:34] <Lunar_Lander> my idea of the "greenhouse" was no joke
[23:34] <Lunar_Lander> :P
[23:34] <daveake> There's a tree .... no, there's a pile of ashes/woodchips
[23:34] <gonzo_> fly some tomato plants?
[23:34] <Lunar_Lander> xD
[23:34] <Lunar_Lander> XD not really
[23:34] <Lunar_Lander> I mean
[23:34] <fsphil> you're making flying tomatoes?
[23:34] <Lunar_Lander> when he began back in 1932, that temperature problem was serious
[23:34] <gonzo_> we did flying spuds once
[23:35] <daveake> fsphil should fly onions
[23:35] <Lunar_Lander> but with that system he was able to fly a high voltage battery for his geiger counter by just insulating the batteries with some feathers
[23:35] <Lunar_Lander> and that was in 1934
[23:35] <fsphil> daveake: only if I could release them from 30km without a chute
[23:35] <fsphil> revenge
[23:35] <Lunar_Lander> xD
[23:35] <daveake> :D
[23:35] <fsphil> I was really enjoying that chicken sandwich
[23:35] <gonzo_> back in the good old days when you cluld buy 90V and 135v batts
[23:36] <fsphil> there was only one, but it was enough
[23:36] <fsphil> that poor sandwich
[23:36] <daveake> For Buzz I used a 12" chute. I thought that was a bit minimal, till I saw Steve with one no more than 8" across, if that
[23:37] <fsphil> anu seemed to have a large chute
[23:37] <daveake> yeah, dunno what size. Didn't notice
[23:37] <daveake> Payload was fairly light so wouldn't need more than 30"
[23:38] <daveake> I used 2$ for buzz5 (250g payload) and that was about right
[23:38] <daveake> 24"
[23:38] <fsphil> I normally use 24"
[23:38] <fsphil> my payloads haven't been that big really
[23:38] <daveake> Buzz6 came down with nearly all of the balloon still attached
[23:38] <fsphil> can't remember what projectcirrus used
[23:39] <daveake> I used a 48" for the dual flight with Upu. We had 1500g worth of payload. Worked out exactly 5m/s landing
[23:39] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[23:40] <Lunar_Lander> is balsa good in the stratosphere?
[23:40] <daveake> I'm falling asleep ... night all
