[00:00] <Lunar_Lander> hi andrew_apex
[00:00] <andrew_apex> evening Lunar_Lander
[00:01] <Lunar_Lander> how are you?
[00:01] <andrew_apex> not too bad thanks. How are you?
[00:02] <Lunar_Lander> quite good
[00:02] <Lunar_Lander> now I can write to the ublox
[00:02] <Lunar_Lander> and set to airborne mode :)
[00:02] <andrew_apex> good to hear :) that bit's very important (speaking from experience of a flight where it wasn't set :P)
[00:05] <Lunar_Lander> xD
[00:05] <Lunar_Lander> yeah I can imagine
[00:05] <Lunar_Lander> which flight was that?
[00:05] <Lunar_Lander> Apex III 2?

[00:07] <andrew_apex> SHARP did four launches - the last three with it in airbourne mode

[00:08] <Lunar_Lander> ahhh yeah I remember that
[00:09] <Lunar_Lander> but I have to say
[00:09] <Lunar_Lander> I forgot a 0x00, 0xFA
[00:09] <Lunar_Lander> resulting in 11 hours of debugging
[00:09] <andrew_apex> whoa, that's a lot of debugging!
[00:10] <andrew_apex> the issue with SHARP is the project was to do a 24 hour turn around - so we recovered, got home at about midnight, and had to have it sorted before leaving for launch the next day at 8am :P
[00:10] <andrew_apex> so 8 hours to sort it and get a nights sleep
[00:10] <Lunar_Lander> yeah
[00:11] <Lunar_Lander> I mean I had to go to another building to come to the chat to ask Upu
[00:11] <Lunar_Lander> but he had a radio exam
[00:11] <Lunar_Lander> and then I had a dinner break too
[00:11] <andrew_apex> alright for some :P
[00:11] <Lunar_Lander> at one point I took laptop and breadboard to the internet building
[00:11] <Lunar_Lander> on one of these rotating chairs
[00:11] <Lunar_Lander> I was actually pushing that chair across campus
[00:11] <Lunar_Lander> got me some looks
[00:12] <andrew_apex> amazing :)
[00:12] <Lunar_Lander> xD
[00:12] <Lunar_Lander> but always it gave FAILED
[00:12] <Lunar_Lander> all that stuff about two missing hex numbers
[00:13] <Lunar_Lander> what I found with daveake though was that I missed a GND connection from GPS to arduino

[08:07] <Morseman> Having difficulty getting full decodes on WDHAB - is it spinning alot I wonder?
[08:07] <junderwood_M0JCU> If the frequency drift is due to doppler, it's having a rough ride!
[08:07] <M0UPU> sounds like it
[08:08] <junderwood_M0JCU> 50Hz = 34 m/s
[08:08] <junderwood_M0JCU> and I have QRM half way between mark and space
[08:08] <M0UPU> yeah 075 isn't a great frequency
[08:09] <junderwood_M0JCU> GPS packed up again
[08:09] <junderwood_M0JCU> and back
[08:11] <M0UPU> can't find it on the FCD oddly

[08:16] <M0UPU> it having a rough ride but I just noticed the ascent rate
[08:16] <Andy-g0poy> As the alt increases it will move out of the antenna lobe. The higher the antenna gain, the more the lobe is pushed down

[11:46] <Andy-g0poy> Question: If Fldigi flight set to buzz, and you receive say ANU by manually retuning, will the correct data be uploaded?
[11:47] <M0UPU> no has to be set to the correct payload

[12:01] <fsphil> anyone know what the heck this is about? http://fpaste.org/Es8q/
[12:02] <zyp> did you get the entire error?
[12:03] <zyp> looks like a syntax error or something, that causes a lot of subsequent errors
[12:03] <zyp> so you have to look at the top to see what the original error were
[12:03] <Andy-g0poy> basic rule of C look at the line before the error :-)
[12:04] <fsphil> that's the lot
[12:04] <fsphil> one sec
[12:04] <zyp> kind of sounds like you put some shit before an include, that causes a syntax error in the included file
[12:06] <fsphil> only thing in hamlib.cxx before that is including config.h
[12:06] <fsphil> but that looks fine
[12:06] <jdtanner> I'm getting Buzz in the Peaks&but no option to configure from fldigi

[12:20] <fsphil> lovely signal
[12:20] <daveake2> heart stopped ... buzz signal stopped just now.
[12:20] <fsphil> I've seen that happen daveake2
[12:20] <daveake2> But it's just hdsdr having a turn
[12:20] <fsphil> (the colinear not the payload stopping :)
[12:20] <daveake2> yes
[12:21] <daveake2> Buzz has looped the loop
[12:21] <number10_M0MDB> had probs wit latest fldigi had to go back to 3.20.29
[12:23] <daveake2> ANU rate is slowing ... I think it might pop soon
[12:23] <number10_M0MDB> 37k not bad for a 1200g balloon
[12:23] <daveake2> nope, very good :)
[12:23] <M0UPU> 1200g ? wow
[12:23] <number10_M0MDB> with camera
[12:23] <number10_M0MDB> yea
[12:23] <M0UPU> should be some good pictures today
[12:24] <number10_M0MDB> a495 and keyring cam and rubbish gsm tracker
[12:24] <M0UPU> MDS80 ?
[12:24] <jdtanner> I'm jumping between Buzz and ANU&any preference as to which I should be helping with?
[12:24] <number10_M0MDB> hope so
[12:24] <M0UPU> both seem well covered jdtanner
[12:24] <jdtanner> Fair enough&.I'll stick with ANU at the mo :)
[12:24] <daveake2> ANU for now as that will (should) burst first
[12:24] <M0UPU> generally stick with the one decending as long as you can
[12:24] <number10_M0MDB> at least I didnt have -ve altitude - I think i would have veen kicked out of ukhas
[12:24] <daveake2> If Buzz gets high I'll need people on that for burst p[lease
[12:24] <Morseman> I see Peaksky have their FT790 up and ruuning on RX as well :-)
[12:24] <number10_M0MDB> no just cheap keyring cam
[12:24] <daveake2> lol
[12:24] <M0UPU> yeah you would have lost you HAB points for making the same error 3 times
[12:25] <number10_M0MDB> lol
[12:25] <M0UPU> alot of trackers
[12:25] <jdtanner> exactly&peaksky are rocking the 80s technology ;)
[12:25] <M0UPU> M0ZOS whos that one ?
[12:25] <M0UPU> hi
[12:25] <number10_M0MDB> thats great
[12:26] <fsphil> burst
[12:26] <jdtanner> Well, just shout if you want me to switch to Buzz as I'm getting them both loud and clear here&
[12:26] <jdtanner> yeah
[12:26] <fsphil> nope
[12:26] <fsphil> not burst
[12:26] <jdtanner> just seen that
[12:26] <number10_M0MDB> yep
[12:26] <fsphil> yep
[12:26] <fsphil> going down
[12:26] <daveake2> there we go
[12:26] <fsphil> that's a pretty stable descent
[12:26] <daveake2> Well done impressive for a 1200 :)
[12:27] <M0UPU> 37.5km on a 1200g :)
[12:27] <daveake2> To the Batmobiles, number10
[12:27] <fsphil> turbines to speed!
[12:27] <fsphil> well the funcube dongle is certainly sensitive enough for this
[12:27] <daveake2> That's a nice drive
[12:27] <fsphil> just needs filtering
[12:27] <daveake2> Pretty views first few miles
[12:28] <daveake2> fsphil Good :)
[12:28] <M0UPU> Looking forward to getting some decent antennas on it fsphil
[12:28] <daveake2> Not tried mine on a distant one yet
[12:28] <fsphil> indeed
[12:28] <fsphil> the range of this flight is about 480km
[12:29] <Lunar_Lander> back from lunch
[12:29] <M0UPU> got your radio on Lunar_Lander ?

[12:30] <Lunar_Lander> M0UPU, no, one sec please
[12:30] <Morseman> Interference on 434.200 here
[12:30] <junderwood_M0JCU> Does ANU float?
[12:30] <M0UPU> I was just looking at that junderwood_M0JCU :)
[12:30] <junderwood_M0JCU> Makes a change from lost at sea
[12:30] <junderwood_M0JCU> (but just as wet)
[12:30] <Lunar_Lander> Anu dropped about 10 km already
[12:31] <r2x0t> floating down -31.7 m/s :)
[12:31] <M0UPU> Lunar XABEN is coming in range of you
[12:31] <Lunar_Lander> ah
[12:31] <Lunar_Lander> dial?
[12:31] <Laurenceb__> why is WDHAB showing a balloon on the tracker?
[12:31] <Laurenceb__> not a chute
[12:31] <M0UPU> no idea
[12:31] <junderwood_M0JCU> flakey GPS
[12:31] <Lunar_Lander> yeah, isn't the balloon if it shows a rise?
[12:31] <Lunar_Lander> GPS noise or so
[12:32] <M0UPU> switching to ANU for a bit as it comes down
[12:32] <Lunar_Lander> need a dial for XABEN
[12:33] <M0UPU> 434.304 ish
[12:33] <M0UPU> just tunr around 434.300
[12:33] <M0UPU> tune
[12:33] <number10_M0MDB> cheers
[12:33] <number10_M0MDB> just setting off
[12:33] <M0UPU> Great signal from ANU
[12:33] <Lunar_Lander> which sideband is it?
[12:34] <M0UPU> USB
[12:34] <Lunar_Lander> thx
[12:34] <number10_M0MDB> it was ntx from your store :)
[12:34] <M0UPU> exactly :)
[12:35] <M0UPU> If euroquartz would ever get back to me
[12:35] <M0UPU> I'm going to make some on non standard frequencies
[12:35] <Lunar_Lander> think I hear something through the noise!
[12:35] <Lunar_Lander> 4.304.8
[12:35] <number10_M0MDB> that would be good
[12:35] <Lunar_Lander> on the FT-790R
[12:35] <M0UPU> you should see 2 parallel lines Lunar_Lander
[12:35] <M0UPU> that sounds right
[12:35] <Lunar_Lander> wait let me hook it up
[12:36] <fsphil> xaben and buzz are just slightly to far apart to receive on the fcd at the same time
[12:36] <fsphil> ah, xaben sending idle characters now
[12:36] <craag> fsphil: What sdr software have you got that can do 2 outputs?
[12:37] <fsphil> craag: it doesn't (gqrx)
[12:37] <fsphil> not yet anyway
[12:37] <fsphil> I'm very tempted to hack an rtty decoder onto it
[12:37] <craag> Ok, would be pretty cool if it did!
[12:37] <fsphil> yea -- fire up two instances of it
[12:38] <fsphil> two rtty decoders in gqrx, the rtl-sdr version too would easily handle multiple payloads
[12:38] <craag> Oh ok, I might give that a try with the rtl-sdr.
[12:38] <fsphil> at the moment I'm still using dl-fldigi
[12:38] <craag> dl-fldigi and sdr# here atm.
[12:39] <fsphil> both xaben and buzz are quite weak
[12:39] <fsphil> xaben more so
[12:40] <M0UPU> XABEN is noticably weak
[12:40] <M0UPU> I'm just wondering if the power isn't exactly as it should be
[12:40] <junderwood_M0JCU> Switched to Xaben. It seemed not to have too many friends
[12:41] <fsphil> I'm back at buzz
[12:41] <M0UPU> I would say you could notch up the power a click on the RFM22B
[12:41] <fsphil> can't decode xaben yet
[12:41] <M0UPU> junderwood_M0JCU as your closest to ANU and likely to keep it as low as it will go it would be better if you could stick on ANU for the moment
[12:41] <M0UPU> shouldn't be up for much longer
[12:42] <junderwood_M0JCU> About 20 minutes.
[12:42] <junderwood_M0JCU> Ping me at 6km if I don't notice

[12:44] <fsphil> qrm looks funky when you can see 80khz in one go
[12:44] <RocketBoy> such is habing

[12:53] <fsphil> you autoconfigured?
[12:54] <junderwood_M0JCU> yes.
[12:54] <fsphil> odd, that should be all it needs

[13:10] <Lunar_Lander> M0UPU, oh ok sorry
[13:11] <nick_> Whilst Oxford looks nice from a distance it really annoys me to see it from above.
[13:11] <M0UPU> best on BUZZ junderwood_M0JCU
[13:11] <junderwood_M0JCU> I'm there
[13:11] <M0UPU> if your not already
[13:11] <M0UPU> :)
[13:11] <nick_> You find out how much land the colleges keep hidden away.
[13:11] <nick_> What is the tracking url?

[13:11] <M0UPU> G8KNN-Jon could you switch to XABEN on 434.306 ish please
[13:12] <junderwood_M0JCU> Looks like Anu found the only trees for miles
[13:12] <junderwood_M0JCU> In a farmyard
[13:12] <M0UPU> number10 must be close getting it on the ground
[13:13] <r2x0t> big trees around ANU
[13:13] <M0UPU> thats in a tree isn't it
[13:13] <r2x0t> I think so
[13:14] <junderwood_M0JCU> I don't think I'll be able to track Buzz as low. Otmoor seems to be in the way
[13:15] <M0UPU> 10p says ANU is 30 meters up a tree
[13:15] <M0UPU> Ground level there is 60 m
[13:15] <junderwood_M0JCU> That's a seriously big tree
[13:15] <r2x0t> also there are powerlines there
[13:16] <junderwood_M0JCU> I doubt it's more than 20m up.
[13:16] <M0UPU> Ava Cloud where 30 meters up
[13:16] <junderwood_M0JCU> (academic anyway above 8m)

[16:23] <Adam012> I am looking around for cheaper alternatives to the Go Pro in case we cannot get sponsorship for one, All I have found so far is the Kodak Playsport zx5 at half the price of the Go Pro 1 and 30% of the price of the Go Pro 2. Most reviews do not explain whether the cameras will stop recording at the 4GB limit.

[16:42] <Adam012> That is the kind of functionality we're looking for. As long as they keep recording up to 3hrs they'll make our list.
[16:47] <daveake> You need ~4GB/hour for HD30 mode on mine
[16:48] <daveake> ANU's landing site - http://i.imgur.com/cT0Sl.jpg
[16:48] <Adam012> That was roughly our estimate. IT certainly thins the field when you start looking at weight battery life and storage.
[16:49] <Adam012> @Daveake - Yowzers! How did you retrieve it safely?
[16:50] <daveake> *I* didn't :)

[17:03] <r2x0t> 1W laser would probably do it
[17:03] <MrScienceMan> why is no one considering just cutting the tree down ?
[17:03] <Adam012> This isn't the US
[17:04] <daveake> It's on private land
[17:04] <r2x0t> because it's in someone's garden? and people usually don't like when you cut their trees for fun
[17:04] <daveake> It's easier, cheaper and less stressful to just make another tracker

[20:26] <Upu> autotracking works great
[20:26] <Upu> when you turn it on
[20:27] <Dan-K2VOL> nick, here's the iridium shield: https://github.com/whitestarballoon/Iridium-Shield
[20:27] <LazyLeopard> Yeah. Had to go out, so just left it to do its own thing. It seems to have tracked down to about 1300m on descent.
[20:27] <Laurenceb__> lol @ packets from tree
[20:28] <Laurenceb__> wonder if anyone has issues with their car fobs
[20:28] <Dan-K2VOL> wow the new Iridium 9603 modem weighs only 11.3g
[20:29] <LazyLeopard> Oh dear. Which payloads ended up in trees?
[20:29] <Lunar_Lander> BUZZ I think
[20:29] <Dan-K2VOL> 9602 weighed 30g
[20:30] <LazyLeopard> Hmmm... Sure looks like it....
[20:30] <Upu> All ANU was in a tree but recovered
[20:31] <Upu> BUZZ is still in a tree and unlikely to be recovered (Daveake likes to decorate trees with pink capsules)
[20:31] <Upu> XABEN took a long time to recover for reasons I'm not quite sure as the landing place looked fairly accesible
[20:31] Dan-K2VOL (~Dan-K2VOL@ left irc: Quit: Leaving.
[20:31] <Upu> RocketBoy ?
[20:31] <RocketBoy> yo
[20:31] <Upu> evening
[20:32] <RocketBoy> hiya
[20:32] <Upu> Xaben looked an easy recovery ?
[20:32] <nick_> Do you guys try to find a landowner before recovering a payload, or just grab it quickly and go?
[20:32] Dan-K2VOL (~Dan-K2VOL@ joined #highaltitude.
[20:32] <Upu> nick_ you always contact the land owner or you'll end up in the nick
[20:32] <nick_> How do you find out who it is?
[20:32] <RocketBoy> yes very easy - able to drive the landy within 50ft or so
[20:33] <Upu> cool
[20:33] <Upu> shame about Buzz but thats HAB
[20:33] <RocketBoy> mind you - i wouldn't have been able to drive an ordinary car that close
[20:33] <Upu> nick just start knocking on doors
[20:33] <Upu> whos land rover was it ?
[20:33] <RocketBoy> mine
[20:34] <Upu> oh ok did you know it was going somewhere off road ?
[20:34] <RocketBoy> my van is a freelander
[20:34] <junderwood_M0JCU> You need a decent sized vehicle to tow the Zodiac :)
[20:34] <Upu> I thought it was something else
[20:34] <Upu> never mind :)
[20:34] <RocketBoy> tis the smallest landy
[20:35] <RocketBoy> your GPS module really proved itselft today
[20:35] <Upu> seemed to work :)
[20:35] <RocketBoy> the payload was almost upside down for the entire flight
[20:35] <nick_> Seems tricksy. If someone came knocking on my door back when I lived in the middle of nowhere I couldn't tell them who owned all the land around me.
[20:35] <Upu> how did that happen ?
[20:36] <RocketBoy> fliped up on launch
[20:36] <Upu> it did seem to be having a rough ride
[20:36] <RocketBoy> due to tension in the cord
[20:36] <Upu> glad it worked
[20:36] <Upu> what power setting did you have the radio on ?
[20:36] <RocketBoy> thats what the transmissions were poor too
[20:36] <Upu> ah ok
[20:36] <Upu> ofc
[20:36] <Upu> it was noticably weaker than ANU
[20:37] <RocketBoy> a smige over 10mw (allowing for loss in the co-ax ;-)
[20:37] <Upu> lol
[20:37] <number10> thanks to every one who tracked today - some air shots from ANU-3 http://www.flickr.com/photos/65839734@N04/sets/72157630097374400/with/7173790435/
[20:38] <RocketBoy> this is how the payload was throughout the flight http://www.flickr.com/photos/16828840@N07/7173618921/in/photostream/
[20:39] <RocketBoy> the cord got wrapped round the groundplane radial on takeoff

[20:39] <Upu> lucky that worked at all RocketBoy
[20:39] <RocketBoy> Alice Roberts :-)
[20:39] <Laurenceb__> yeah
[20:40] <Upu> with the radial bent down like that
[20:40] <Upu> great pictures Number10
[20:41] <Upu> got to be some stitchable ones there
[20:41] <Lunar_Lander> hi RocketBoy
[20:41] <Lunar_Lander> Upu, what is the nick?
[20:41] <Upu> police station
[20:41] <Lunar_Lander> is that like prison?
[20:41] <Lunar_Lander> oh ok
[20:41] <Dan-K2VOL> nice pics number10
[20:42] <Upu> lol all the ones coming down trees, powerlines water :)
[20:42] <number10> thnx Upu / Dan-K2VOL
[20:42] <Dan-K2VOL> anyone ever get hardware flow control pins to work with an AVR?
[20:43] <number10> was interesting to see the parachute on the ground and the string over the high voltage cables with the paload on other end in bush/small tree
[20:43] <Dan-K2VOL> hmm.
[20:43] <Dan-K2VOL> interesting sounds more like scary
[20:43] <number10> a little worrying
[20:44] <Dan-K2VOL> glad that string wasn't wet or an HF aerial! ;-)
[20:45] <number10> long pole with hook to drag payload from tree, then cut string and parachute droped to ground
[20:46] <Upu> well all in a fun day
[20:46] <number10> must remember to bring rubber gloves next time
[20:47] <number10> was a good balloon RocketBoy, thanks :)
[20:47] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[20:48] <RocketBoy> 1600 number10 ?
[20:48] <number10> 1200
[20:48] <RocketBoy> cool - I haven't got any more - and wont have for several months :(
[20:48] <Upu> 1600g's all gone ?
[20:49] <number10> what about 1600s? was about to order but see run out?
[20:49] <RocketBoy> I should have some more in a couple of days
[20:50] <number10> great stuff - are you near lavenham next weekend?
[20:50] <RocketBoy> yeah - expect to be
[20:50] <number10> ok, I'll send you an email
[20:52] <nick_> number10: how did it go today?
[20:52] <nick_> Sorry I didn't make it along to help (or more likely get in the way)
[20:52] <number10> very well for me nick_ , not so good for daveake
[20:53] <nick_> Because of a tree?
[20:53] <number10> Buzz7 burst a lot earlier than expected, also high in tree
[20:54] <nick_> And idea why it burst early?
[20:54] <Upu> junderwood is still receiving it I think
[20:55] <number10> you also missed a descent bacon buttie nick_
[20:55] <fsphil> I suspect if Dave managed to land a HAB on the moon, it would probably land in a tree
[20:55] <nick_> :(
[20:55] <nick_> You missed out on a pint of my homebrew
[20:55] <fsphil> I tried to talk everyone here into having bacon butties, but nobody wanted to
[20:55] <Lunar_Lander> XD fsphil
[20:55] <number10> :(
[20:57] <fsphil> hopefully next week. going camping, yays
[20:57] <Upu> what day ?
[20:57] <number10> where to?
[20:57] <Upu> you know you have to be back fro EURUS ? :)
[20:57] <fsphil> friday night
[20:57] <fsphil> I can track remotely :)
[20:58] <fsphil> somewhere up on the coast number10, not decided yet
[20:58] <fsphil> depends on the weather
[20:58] <number10> what day eurus going up?
[20:58] <fsphil> saturday or sunday
[20:59] <number10> you need a camping holiday on the highest mountain ;)

[21:01] <eroomde> i am embarrasingly un setup for hab tracking atm
[21:02] <eroomde> need to get stuff sorted for my car i guess
[21:03] <number10> when are you launch eroomde
[21:03] <number10> ing
[21:03] <eroomde> not sure. maybe july?
[21:03] <eroomde> depends on likelihood of getting a notma at work during the olympics
[21:06] Hiena (~boreger@ left irc: Remote host closed the connection
[21:09] <number10> I wonder if that will be difficult
[21:10] <eroomde> the skys seem to be very locked down for pilots certainly even random fields need to apply for landing slots in advance
[21:10] <nick_> Are there specific sites you can/can't get a NOTAM for?
[21:10] <eroomde> the RAF are taking control of all the airspace for the duration
[21:10] <nick_> Or do you have to apply to find out whether an area is not allowed?
[21:11] <eroomde> the latter
[21:11] <Dan-K2VOL> oh fun
[21:11] <eroomde> i'm sure they have some criteria
[21:11] <eroomde> it's all a bit opqaue though
[21:11] <G0DJA> Unless you are organizing a rave, or permanently staying on land, the criminal law doesn't apply to trespass in the UK, even under the 1994 act...
[21:11] <G0DJA> Despite the well known sign trespassers will be prosecuted, trespass is not a criminal offence and trespassers cannot usually be prosecuted. They can, however, be sued. There is little chance of such a matter ever being so serious as to be worth suing over, and so this rarely happens.
[21:12] <number10> ealy start tomorrow (5:30) - nice meeting you today eroomde
[21:12] <G0DJA> If you are asked to leave you have to by the shortest practical route.
[21:12] <eroomde> ?
[21:12] <nick_> On http://notaminfo.com/ukmap has a red box around Oxford, any idea what that means?
[21:12] <G0DJA> Criminal damage is another matter, as is carrying afirearm (including a pellet gun)

[21:13] <nick_> Ah, I see
[21:13] <eroomde> it's only temporary
[21:13] <Lunar_Lander> but wait
[21:13] <eroomde> for flypasts
[21:14] <eroomde> for the jubilee
[21:14] <Lunar_Lander> on the Railways it says "Fine for Trespassing: 1000 Pounds"
[21:14] <Upu> thats different
[21:14] <Upu> that is a criminal matter
[21:15] <Lunar_Lander> ah
[21:15] <G0DJA> No
[21:16] Action: Laurenceb__ sends G0DJA to #legalise
[21:17] <G0DJA> There was a suggestion that you would be criminally charged (put in the nick) for trespass earlier
[21:17] <G0DJA> Not in the UK you wont
[21:17] <craag> Upu: Are the RX_ANT and TX_ANT pins connected to anything on your rfm22 breakout board?
[21:17] <Upu> hi craag

[21:18] <Upu> Yeah RX_ANT <-> GPIO_0
[21:18] <Upu> TX_ANT <-> GPIO_1
[21:19] <G0DJA> For obvious reasons it's a good idea to ask 1st but you can't be arrested for trespass against land in UK
[21:19] <G0DJA> Unless you park up or organise a rave...
[21:19] <G0DJA> park up being for the night/week etc
[21:21] <craag> Ok thanks!
[21:21] <Lunar_Lander> COOL so I can walk down the train line?
[21:21] <Lunar_Lander> awesome!
[21:21] <jdtanner> ...not for trespass...but for damage caused in the process of trespassing you can
[21:22] <jdtanner> Actually, there are specific laws relating to trspass on the railway
[21:22] <Upu> Lunar on the off chance you weren't joking not its illegal to walk on railways
[21:22] <jdtanner> Very illegal...and daft :P

[21:25] <jcoxon> evening
[21:25] <SpeedEvil> Also specific installations - like airfields or airports
[21:25] <G0DJA> Well, some of them throw each other through my hedge...
[21:25] <Upu> evening jcoxon
[21:26] <G0DJA> I checked and whilst it's damage, I have to prove who it was, and sue them
[21:26] <jdtanner> Well I've "had words" for a lot less
[21:27] <G0DJA> No criminal activity of trespass, just 'damage to property' - different law
[21:27] <jdtanner> Yes, but one to be very much aware of :)
[21:28] <G0DJA> If you climb over my hedge to collect something, I can ask you to leave, and you have to go
[21:28] <G0DJA> or, prove you damaged something in doing so
[21:28] jcoxon (~jcoxon@ left irc: Quit: Leaving
[21:28] <nick_> Be glad you're not worrying about this in America
[21:28] <nick_> Don't want someone "standing their ground" against you.
[21:29] <G0DJA> If you throw something over my hedge, you can as k for it back and I have to give it back to you as well (like tennis balls/footballs etc)
[21:29] <nick_> Someone recently did that to me.
[21:30] <nick_> I kinda suspect she was trying to rob me.
[21:30] <nick_> It was very weird.
[21:30] <G0DJA> but if it damaged something (like a greenhouse) you have to pay for the damage
[21:31] <nick_> Have there been any incidents of HAB payloads damaging stuff?
[21:31] <nick_> If so what happened?
[21:31] <nick_> You guys don't all get insurance, right?
[21:31] <jdtanner> I'd probably just speak to the local neighbourhood policing team.
[21:31] <G0DJA> Not heard of any, but insurance should cover it
[21:32] <G0DJA> I probably know the law better than our local lot jdtanner...
[21:32] <nick_> That's how you stay one step ahead of them?
[21:32] <jdtanner> Maybe...but they might surprise you :)
[21:32] <G0DJA> Only if they ever came round here...
[21:32] <jdtanner> Some of them (us) are quite helpful
[21:33] <jdtanner> ;)
[21:33] <G0DJA> Got a number for any in Bolsover?
[21:33] <jdtanner> Yep.
[21:33] <G0DJA> They don't even enforce the one way and no entry laws in the town now
[21:34] <eroomde> nick_: dont know of any damage
[21:34] <eroomde> we dont have insurance
[21:34] <G0DJA> Even the Police don't keep to those...
[21:34] <jdtanner> That is probably due to a lack of numbers :(
[21:34] <nick_> When I was younger I crashed my car and had to turn up at the local station to prove I had a license (despite it being with me when I crashed). That's when I found out the local station is only open a day or two each week.
[21:34] <jdtanner> nick_ .... in the UK?
[21:34] <nick_> yes
[21:35] <G0DJA> Saw one come the wrong way through a no entry, up the wrong way of a one way, cross the pavement and back onto the road (no blues and twos, no emergency, just convenience)
[21:35] <jdtanner> Probably just an enquiry office...bobbies are probably based there all the time ;)
[21:35] <jdtanner> G0DJA: probably should report that
[21:36] <G0DJA> Our local police station now closed - when I was asked to 'provide' my documents I ended up having to go to Chesterfield
[21:36] <nick_> I wanted to report a policeman in America for driving like he was drunk, but I'm scared of their police.
[21:37] <G0DJA> Who would belive me jdtanner, what proof did I have?
[21:37] <jdtanner> Probably best not to continue on here...but that type of thing is taken seriously.
[21:37] <G0DJA> Next time I'll film it as long as the coppers don't then decide to arrest me for filming them - that's happened to people who film the police dong bad stuff as well.
[21:38] <jdtanner> I'm quite happy when people film me :)
[21:38] <nick_> I know there have been some problems in the US with people getting done under anti-terror laws for filming the police breaking the law.
[21:38] <G0DJA> No it ain't - I worked with coppers and had them as Scout members. They know it's your word against them and then they will have my car number plate as well...
[21:39] <SpeedEvil> Filming the police is quite legal. Unless you use one of those big palet wrapping machines. They don't like that.
[21:39] <jdtanner> ...LOL
[21:39] daveake (~daveake@daveake.plus.com) left irc: Ping timeout: 252 seconds

[21:41] <G0DJA> I used to be a law abiding fan of the Police and then my credit card got ripped off and was accused of it being my fault for having a meal in London!
[21:42] <G0DJA> Tyhen they told me the Bank was better than the Police for that sort of tjing
[21:42] <nick_> I never really liked The Police. Sting is a dick.
[21:42] <G0DJA> Then they asked if my car was legal, and the tires were OK. (It's a company car so they were) and then about the car that was SORN on my drive!
[21:43] <G0DJA> So, I don't bother with the local lot any more...
[21:44] <jdtanner> Oh dear :( Sounds like you've had a bad experience...and on my patch as well :( All I can say is that, even thos eof us who do it voluntariliy, all try and do outr best.
[21:44] <jdtanner> (sorry...new keyboard)
[21:44] <nick_> I had a relatively pleasant experience when I was cautioned by the police.
[21:45] <jdtanner> (that isn't something you hear often :) )
[21:45] <nick_> I think they took pity on me because I mostly bashed myself up badly.
[21:45] <G0DJA> I got the impression they were low on collars that month and it was an opportunity to go fishing when I was ripped off and they couldn't do anything about it
[21:46] <jdtanner> ...sounds a bit rough
[21:46] <jdtanner> on you
[21:46] <jdtanner> :(
[21:47] <nick_> Do people essentially get flights insured indirectly?
[21:47] <nick_> Via some group's general insurance or something.
[21:48] <jdtanner> I've wondered that as well...
[21:50] <Broliv> night everyone
[21:50] <G0DJA> Don't know about insurance but it would be a good idea IMO
[21:50] Broliv (~Broliv@ left irc:

[21:52] <G0DJA> BTW - I used to be in RAYNET in the West Midlands so I had contact with the EMS - OK 20 years or so ago - plus in Scouts so I know some of the things that are expected of the Police...
[21:52] <G0DJA> If you pay Fire people by the number of fires they put out, the possibility is that they may start some - unitended consequeces

[21:53] <Lunar_Lander> we had to read Fahrenheit 451 in school

[22:03] <smrtz> Like what?
[22:04] <nick_> Maybe you could launch some star trek model and sell it on ebay as having been in space?
[22:04] <jdtanner> I was thinking of making PeakSky2 look like Sputnik...but then I realised that it will already look like Sputnik
[22:04] <jdtanner> ;)
[22:04] <smrtz> Well, near space

[22:05] <gonzo_> just been given some recovered bits from a met sonde. Interesting that it seems to have a bobbin with the cord, between the balloon/chute and the sonde
[22:05] <gonzo_> seems to be some sort of slow pay-out of the line, to avoid having to release them with a ling line to start with?
[22:06] <smrtz> speaking of parachutes, how do you guys attach yours to your balloon? I was thinking a girth hitch, but that doesn't seem like it would slip off.
[22:08] <nick_> Maybe you could launch some of the star wars lego figures and make a few quid from the nerds.
[22:08] <jdtanner> Some of the rocketyou can lash toman chutes have a loop at the top of them which

[22:12] <jdtanner> from http://www.the-rocketman.com/recovery.html
[22:13] <smrtz> hmm.
[22:13] <smrtz> so you mount the balloon directly to the parachute, then just let the balloon pop, and the parachute opens?
[22:13] <jdtanner> Yep
[22:14] <smrtz> ahh, cool, thanks
[22:14] <smrtz> I guess this could work with any parachute? Because I didn't get mine from there.

[22:15] <fsphil> the met office put the chute inside the balloon
[22:16] <fsphil> which reminds me, wanna track tonights
[22:16] <jdtanner> tonights what?
[22:16] <fsphil> local weather balloon launch
[22:17] <fsphil> there's software you can get for tracking them
[22:17] <jdtanner> cool
[22:17] <Lunar_Lander> ah everyone is still there :)
[22:17] <gonzo_> do you still have to post process the gps info?
[22:17] <fsphil> I'll have to put it on spacenear sometime
[22:17] <smrtz> Don't live in the UK, fsphil
[22:17] <r2x0t> you get realtime gps pos
[22:17] <Lunar_Lander> jdtanner, yeah and BUZZ already looked like Sputnik too
[22:17] <Lunar_Lander> xD
[22:18] <fsphil> it can do it live gonzo_ , but it needs a current copy of the whatchamacallit
[22:18] <r2x0t> but still need almanach, either from internet or local gps
[22:18] <nick_> Does someone here run spacenear.us?
[22:18] <gonzo_> ephemer-thingy
[22:18] <fsphil> yea, that thing :)
[22:18] <smrtz> Actually guys, I'm using FM, and solo tracking, so that should be hard.
[22:18] <fsphil> nick_: natrium42 does
[22:19] <smrtz> my plan is to pop the balloon by melting some resistors after x hours to keep it from getting to far away.
[22:19] <r2x0t> wxsondes are good source for cheap parachutes, gps antennas and batteries :)
[22:19] <fsphil> lol
[22:19] <fsphil> they rarely land near here sadly
[22:19] <smrtz> how long should I let it float?
[22:19] <gonzo_> I have pjm's chute for our launch
[22:19] <Lunar_Lander> r2x0t, xD yea
[22:19] <fsphil> there's no proper answer for that smrtz
[22:19] <nick_> smrtz: wouldn't it be better to trigger abort based on position?
[22:19] <Lunar_Lander> smrtz, where are you from?
[22:19] <fsphil> however long you want :)
[22:20] <pjm> gonzo_ is that chute alright?
[22:20] Action: nick_ had thought about trying to add some stuff to somethign like spacenear.us
[22:20] <gonzo_> eve agn
[22:20] <gonzo_> looks ok
[22:20] <gonzo_> I'd fly it
[22:20] <smrtz> Lunar_Lander, US of A. and nick_ I really don't understand C++, so I wouldn't be able to do that.
[22:20] <Lunar_Lander> ah
[22:20] <nick_> Adding plots of extra into in the telemetry, for example.
[22:20] <nick_> smrtz: I'm sure people here could help.
[22:21] <smrtz> Anyone want to?
[22:21] RocketBoy (steverand@b0181819.bb.sky.com) left #highaltitude.
[22:21] <nick_> It's not much harder than triggering on time if your microcontroller reads the GPS already.
[22:21] <nick_> I'd be happy to try to help.
[22:21] <nick_> smrtz: where abouts?
[22:21] <smrtz> I would guess not, and Virginia.
[22:22] <smrtz> would it just be an if else?
[22:22] <nick_> The way I would do it is basically write a function to measure the horizontal distane travelled.
[22:22] <fsphil> there is code on the wiki for testing if you're inside a polygon
[22:22] <smrtz> if it goes out of this range, power pin 7 (the resistor)?
[22:22] <nick_> And then trigger the abort if it was greater than some threshold.
[22:22] viewer34 (43bc7ef7@gateway/web/freenode/ip. joined #highaltitude.
[22:22] <nick_> Basically
[22:22] <smrtz> oh thats, a good idea.
[22:23] <nick_> And just run this on a ticker or somehow in your code periodically.
[22:23] <smrtz> fsphil, inside a polygog
[22:23] <smrtz> polygon?
[22:23] <nick_> Polygon is just an arbitrary shape.
[22:23] <fsphil> yea, a series of points (geographic points)
[22:23] <fsphil> a closed series I should say
[22:23] <smrtz> like whiten the loop. hmm. let me look at that code.
[22:23] <fsphil> you could draw a box for example,
[22:24] <fsphil> http://ukhas.org.uk/code:uk_polygon
[22:24] <fsphil> code is that the bottom
[22:24] <nick_> That's a little more complicated than calculating r = sqrt(dx^2 + dy^2) but still fairly simple.
[22:24] <smrtz> yeah, around launch and predicted landing areas.
[22:24] <smrtz> Thanks for the link fsphil
[22:25] <nick_> smrtz: what are you running your flight computer on?
[22:25] <smrtz> an arduno
[22:25] <smrtz> Arduino*
[22:26] <r2x0t> doesn't matter which one you choose, but make sure you test it properly before flight
[22:26] <fsphil> indeed
[22:26] <r2x0t> last thing you want is cutdown 5m above your head
[22:27] <smrtz> yeah, I will, thanks again for the help with FM, r2x0t
[22:27] <jdtanner> Right....night all
[22:27] <fsphil> nite jdt!

[22:27] <r2x0t> nice... it was just some idea I got when you asked, never actually tried that in hw
[22:27] <smrtz> haha
[22:28] <smrtz> I was wondering if theres a way to have it do something like 102.2 instead of 434.650.
[22:29] <smrtz> within the arduino.
[22:29] <r2x0t> you would need different tx module for that

[22:41] <r2x0t> 15km should be ok

[22:42] <smrtz> ok, cool, I'll try to do that.
[22:42] <r2x0t> you should test it on ground
[22:42] <smrtz> heh, that's exactly what I maid.
[22:42] <r2x0t> put it on some high building or hill or something

[22:45] <fsphil> possibly
[22:46] <fsphil> not sure what it could be
[22:46] <fsphil> I've filtered out everything below 200mhz with the diplexer
[22:46] <gonzo_> what's it sound like if you put the ssb rx window on it?

[22:53] <smrtz> How sensitive is the U-BLOX timing in regards to software serial vs HW serial?
[22:53] <gonzo_> tetra?
[22:53] <r2x0t> fsphil: that's more like TETRA/TETRAPOL band
[22:53] <nick_> Why would you want to use software serial?
[22:54] <smrtz> nick_, I don't have the HW.
[22:54] <r2x0t> every arduino have HW serial
[22:54] <smrtz> I'm looking at http://ava.upuaut.net/store/wiki/doku.php?id=levelconvertor by the way.
[22:54] <nick_> Arduino does, d0/d1, no?
[22:54] <smrtz> oh, well then. thanks
[22:54] <nick_> OR 1/2, I forget the numbering
[22:54] <r2x0t> you just can't use it at same time as programming cable
[22:55] <fsphil> tetra, yea I've heard of that
[22:55] <daveake> 0/1
[22:55] <smrtz> oh. it says I'll need a "UM232 Serial UART Development Module or equivalent"
[22:55] <nick_> I thought you could, you just get the same signal on USB and the serial pins
[22:55] <fsphil> yea spot on r2x0t, that's what it is
[22:55] <fsphil> there must be a transmitter nearby
[22:55] <r2x0t> you can multiplex it, there's clever way with some resistors
[22:56] <r2x0t> but GPS output will mess up with programming
[22:56] <r2x0t> so you can't have connected output from GPS while programming
[22:56] <nick_> OK, yeah
[22:56] <r2x0t> that's only problem
[22:56] <r2x0t> small jumper will solve it..
[22:56] <daveake> Yeah, either use a jumper or switch
[22:56] <nick_> Sorry, I thought you meant while monitoring the serial, not actually programming. I wasn't thinking precisely.
[22:57] <daveake> or an ISP
[22:57] <r2x0t> yeah, or that
[22:58] <smrtz> r2x0t, the guide I'm following says I'll need a "UM232 UART Module", do I not?
[22:58] <daveake> What Arduino?
[22:58] <smrtz> thats an arduino? what?
[22:58] <r2x0t> what type of arduino?
[22:59] <r2x0t> or atmel chip on it
[22:59] <smrtz> I have a pro mini 3.3v, but the guide uses an uno
[22:59] <fsphil> hmm.. now to find a tetra filter with sma sockets:)
[22:59] <r2x0t> best tetra filter is RPG
[22:59] <r2x0t> solves the problem
[22:59] <daveake> OK, for the pro mini you need a USB-serial adapter
[22:59] <SpeedEvil> fsphil: Checkout fish suppliers.
[22:59] <fsphil> lol
[23:00] <fsphil> people tried that here r2x0t, didn't work out well :)
[23:00] <smrtz> daveake, yea, to program, but do I need one to do HW serial for a U-BLOX 6?
[23:00] <r2x0t> no, you can connect GPS directly
[23:00] <r2x0t> it's all 3.3v
[23:00] <smrtz> I have a 3.3v arduino.
[23:01] <r2x0t> there's guide on wiki for that as well
[23:01] <daveake> No, for h/w serial you just connect directly
[23:01] <daveake> The USB-serial is to program the AVR
[23:01] <smrtz> oh, I'll check that out, but, is tracking over software serial practically impossible
[23:01] <daveake> But not both at the same time
[23:02] <r2x0t> SW serial is possible, but it's much less reliable
[23:02] <nick_> You don't want to do software serial if you can avoid it (which you can)
[23:02] <daveake> So you to program you disconnect the GPS (plug/socket, or jumper, or switch)
[23:02] <smrtz> ok, thanks daveake the guide on ava.upunet says otherwise. thanks
[23:02] <r2x0t> if you can use HW serial, do it
[23:02] <smrtz> I can now that I know I don't need another part.
[23:02] <daveake> s/w serial is to be avoided
[23:03] <smrtz> thanks guys, I'll set that up somehow...

[23:09] <smrtz> yeah, the one I linked
[23:10] <r2x0t> maybe it was UKHAS wiki
[23:10] <r2x0t> *was
[23:10] <smrtz> I couldn't find it there either...
[23:13] <r2x0t> just ignore the level converter
[23:13] <r2x0t> you connect GPS on same port you use for programming
[23:13] <r2x0t> then set it to correct baudrate
[23:13] <r2x0t> and rest of the example with HW serial is same (parsing, commands, ...)
[23:14] <smrtz> I am, and remap the pins to those used for programing? or are they already set for HW serial? also, is there a way to test this over serial monitor like nick_ was saying?

[23:47] <fsphil> -49C
[23:47] <r2x0t> the carriers are caused when normal BPSK would have zero amplitude
[23:48] <fsphil> gotcha
[23:48] thecduck (~thecduck@139.109-247-46.customer.lyse.net) left irc: Ping timeout: 252 seconds
[23:49] <fsphil> slowing down, 4m/s ascent
[23:50] <fsphil> isn't moving very far either, still above the motorway
[23:51] <r2x0t> have you did habhub prediction?
[23:51] <fsphil> must just do that...
[23:51] <r2x0t> I always check few next days, if it's even worth monitoring the sondes
[23:53] <fsphil> I hate spectravue
[23:53] <fsphil> it's stopped working
[23:53] <r2x0t> using sdr-iq/14 ?
[23:53] <fsphil> going again
[23:54] <fsphil> http://habhub.org/predict/#!/uuid=5e566f10a0f53ed1538d8f23f4229cc3997d3aba
[23:54] <fsphil> that's bang on
[23:55] <r2x0t> good wx you have, not flying far away
[23:55] <fsphil> yea, wish I could launch my own payload
[23:56] <fsphil> this is gopro weather :)
[23:58] <fsphil> temperature dropping again
[23:58] <fsphil> -46C
[23:59] <fsphil> stuuupid spectravue again
