[07:47] <nosebleed_> Im joking :)
[07:47] <fsphil> I know :) but it's a good image
[07:48] <nosebleed_> this only happens in public services. Usually greeks do 2 jobs.
[07:49] <nosebleed_> working arround 12 hours every day.
[07:49] <nosebleed_> 8+4
[07:50] <number10> does the tax office know about the second job?
[07:50] <nosebleed_> no
[07:50] <nosebleed_> its illigal
[07:50] <nosebleed_> illegal
[07:50] <nosebleed_> I plan to start a second job too :)
[07:50] <nosebleed_> for weekends
[07:52] <fsphil> I enjoy my weekends not at work
[07:53] <nosebleed_> sounds normal for a north guy :)
[07:55] <nosebleed_> our civil services do much damage to money. We are 10million and 1million is working on civil services.
[07:55] <number10> you could get a job processing NOAMS at the CAA
[07:55] <nosebleed_> and now germany says if you want money make that 1million to half.
[07:56] <nosebleed_> and many people are going to loose jobs.
[07:57] <nosebleed_> which will cause sociaty problems and people starts to prepere for that
[07:57] <daveake> "NOAMS"? NUmber10? Deliberate typo?
[07:57] <nosebleed_> NOTAMS*

[07:57] <nosebleed_> what is a NOAM ? :P
[07:58] <number10> NOTAM
[07:58] <fsphil> it's what you get during a pilot strike
[07:58] <daveake> It's like having a NOTAM, but not having it

[11:28] <daveake> Link for that SDR?
[11:31] <navrac> err it was the one in the article on the wiki..one sec
[11:31] <navrac> http://ukhas.org.uk/guides:sdr_tracker
[11:32] <navrac> those are the instructions i've followed -
[11:32] <daveake> I have that same one that Upu used, and yes it's working here
[11:32] <daveake> What's not working?
[11:33] <daveake> The mistake I made was to use the standard SDR# not the dev one
[11:33] <daveake> I think it was smooth otherwise
[11:33] <navrac> it just errors out here and wont start. as soon as i click on it I get 'SDR sharp has stopped working' - I'm on w7 64bit - I cant see it sday thast it doesnt work on it
[11:34] <navrac> i've got the latest 'nightly' build
[11:34] <daveake> W7 64 here too
[11:35] <navrac> i've also tried the extio_usrp with hdsdr and whilst that appears to tune, it doesnt seem to receive anything.
[11:35] <daveake> I doubt it's the ezap side - I don't think the program uses that till you tell it to

[11:41] <daveake> navrac I've just downloaded that latest "nightly" one to a spare folder. It starts up fine
[11:41] <navrac> well dep is off, ive downloaded both versions the dev and stable ones and neither run
[11:42] <navrac> wish i was still on xp - I'd stand a chance then

[11:45] <navrac> it should be ok to run the program from the downloads folder shouldnt it?

[12:00] <daveake> That's all the things I'd have tried too. Not that I had to try any of them :p
[12:01] <navrac> ive even rebooted the machine i was that desperate
[12:01] <fsphil> I hit a wall trying to get the dongle working on windows xp
[12:01] <fsphil> not the same sdr software though
[12:01] <fsphil> hdsdr
[12:01] <fsphil> just refused to work
[12:01] <daveake> hdsdr didn't see mine
[12:02] <daveake> it wants to see a sound device and I guess this wasn't one
[12:02] <navrac> im not sure whether its working with hdsdr - it looks reasonable above 112mhz - but below that i just get the same spectrum display
[12:03] <navrac> ill stick a carrier up and have a look
[12:03] <fsphil> I get the same display below 70mhz
[12:05] <navrac> well i stuck in the extio_usrp - but as you say there is no 'sound device ' that you can select

[12:31] <daveake> Anybody reading it is not allowed to launch a pi before I do :p
[12:32] <Darkside> i should tie a pi to some balloons and launch it
[12:32] <Darkside> don't bother about getting it back :P
[12:32] <Darkside> or tape it to the outside of a normal horus launch

[18:35] <fsphil> the tracker doesn't seem to be updating
[18:36] <jcoxon> oh i haven't launched
[18:36] <jcoxon> i'm going to drive out of canterbury
[18:36] <jcoxon> and then launch it
[18:36] <G0MJW> Ah.
[18:36] <jcoxon> also remember its a pico so the range might be limited
[18:37] <G0MJW> I will miss that then as I have to go. Catch up later.
[18:38] <fsphil> aaaaah
[18:38] <fsphil> when you said "payload is off"
[18:38] <G0MJW> Hand on a minute - a filled balloon inside the car?
[18:38] <fsphil> it's a foil balloon
[18:39] <fsphil> not as big as a typical latex, nor as fragile
[18:39] <fsphil> or smelly
[18:39] <G0MJW> All becomes clear.
[18:40] <Upu> evening
[18:40] <G0MJW> Or perhaps I should reflect on that.

[20:10] <kokey> I thought you launched it from a sail boat by whitstable

[20:44] <jcoxon> i built the payload ages ago
[20:44] <jcoxon> not sure how i set it up

[20:51] <jcoxon> KT5TK, that makes sense
[20:51] <jcoxon> 2xAAA lithium
[20:51] <KT5TK> So 3V = 833?
[20:54] <jcoxon> probably
[20:55] <KT5TK> Pretty nice launch for a party balloon! congrats!
[20:55] <KT5TK> I wonder where the actual float will be.
[20:55] <jcoxon> it woun't be too long

[21:04] <Lunar_Lander> I am fed up with my board that I made
[21:05] <Lunar_Lander> my professor asked what about making the board more like an Arduino Shield
[21:05] <Lunar_Lander> but the radio and the GPS were like looking over the edge, so I wanted to invert the GPS so that the antenna wouldn't be in the way
[21:05] <Lunar_Lander> changed the connections to the header, but then the green LED I tied to the 3.3V line didn't come on anymore and the regulator got really hot
[21:06] <Lunar_Lander> (GPS wasn't plugged in of course)
[21:06] <M0UPU> all part of the learning Lunar
[21:06] <Lunar_Lander> I'm fed up
[21:06] <Lunar_Lander> can't find the short circuit

[21:06] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[21:06] <Lunar_Lander> I desoldered the regulator
[21:06] <Lunar_Lander> on the breadboard it works fine
[21:07] <Lunar_Lander> well
[21:07] <Lunar_Lander> multimeter shows 3.28 V instead of 3.32 V before

[22:09] <G0MJW> Hello Jules
[22:09] <gonzo_> how did the ral-rt go? Was double booked
[22:10] <G0MJW> It went well - despite your not being there.
[22:11] <gonzo_> probably because I wasn't there!
[22:11] <G0MJW> Bit hectic for me though. I flew out to Geneva 4am the next morning.
[22:12] <gonzo_> that was cutting it fime
[22:13] <G0MJW> It was. If Dave is using a TS2000 and a 37 Element Wimo I don't see why he is not getting a signal
[22:14] <G0MJW> Mind you - if he is using a vertical at that range I am surprised he is seeing anything at all!
[22:15] <jdtanner> This is what I've got http://tinypic.com/r/68efme/6
[22:15] <jdtanner> ;)
[22:17] <G0MJW> At least it is uniform
[22:17] <jdtanner> lol
[22:18] <jdtanner> that bit of noise has haunted me all night
[22:18] <gonzo_> dave is only just in the footprint
[22:19] <gonzo_> would be very low on the horison
[22:20] <G0MJW> Yes. And a vertical gets noise from all around whereas a beam only in the direction it is pointed. More or less.

[22:21] <G0DJA> Older DL-FLDigi does work a bit
[22:21] <jcoxon> G0DJA, what OS?
[22:21] <G0MJW> I found the new FL Digi needed manual config of the tone spacing.
[22:22] <G0DJA> So, it probably wasn't my RX but DL-FLdigi that wasn't working...
[22:22] <gonzo_> 3.21.38 seems stable, which is what I have
[22:22] <G0DJA> OS = Windows XP
[22:22] <G0MJW> Jules - you know the answer to that. All it needs is petrol and oil for the chain.
[22:23] <gonzo_> nope, this would take a war's worth of explosives. I'm in a valley
[22:23] <G0DJA> I do know, and did alter, tone spacing - Please, I'm not that clueless...

[23:14] <jcoxon> time is correct
[23:15] <jcoxon> oh well
[23:15] <jcoxon> will need to keep an eye
[23:16] <jcoxon> so in the gaps the single tone the gps is off
[23:16] <jcoxon> if its a double chirp then gps is on
[23:17] <G0MJW> Single
[23:17] <G0MJW> Double
[23:17] <jcoxon> cool
[23:17] <jcoxon> so it'll tx when it gets lock
[23:20] <G0MJW> PICO,8?23,231803,523691597,10980986, oh dear
[23:20] <jcoxon> G0MJW, not good
[23:21] <G0MJW> Same string. Lost time stamp as it went to new screen. rest is 4193,10,802,325*1148
[23:21] <jcoxon> yeah the timestamp is changing
[23:21] <jcoxon> so are the voltage and temp
[23:22] <G0MJW> Yes, I take it as PICO,0023,231803,523691597,10980986,4193,10,802,325*1148

[23:23] <G0MJW> I think what is happening is you are not allowing enough time for the GPS to send an update. It is locked but not got a position.
[23:23] <jcoxon> yeah, but looking at the code it should tx until its got a 3d lock
[23:24] <G0MJW> The time was also wrong. It has 23 mins past but it was not that late.
[23:24] <jcoxon> 231803
[23:25] <G0MJW> Oh - OK. That was because of teh screen refresh.
[23:25] <jcoxon_> if you open up non-hab version of dl-fldigi
[23:25] <jcoxon_> you can have more lines of slow-hell
[23:25] <jcoxon_> i'm finding the signal is much easier to decode as this ridiculously slow rate
[23:26] <G0MJW> So I deduce it was PICO,823,231803,523691597,10980986,4193,10,802,325*1148
[23:29] <G0MJW> Frequency jumped. Missed start. 824,232633,523691597,10980986,4193,9,803,324*14AE
[23:29] <jcoxon_> PICO,824,232533,523691597,10980986,4193,9,803,324*14AE
[23:30] <G0MJW> 232633 you are right, I can't type
[23:30] <jcoxon> grrrr i wish it would update lat/lon
[23:30] <jcoxon> this makes me sad
[23:31] <G0MJW> Sad/bad/mad. Whatever. Time for bed I think. Get up early....
[23:31] <jcoxon> G0MJW, thanks for listen out for it

[23:47] <jcoxon> just not updating lat/lon/alt
[23:48] <Lunar_Lander> ah, in Slow Hellschreiber?
[23:49] <jcoxon> yeah
[23:50] <Lunar_Lander> cool!
[23:50] <Lunar_Lander> how difficult is Hellschreiber?
[23:51] <jcoxon> its easy
[23:51] <jcoxon> its on off keying
[23:52] <jcoxon> like morse
[23:53] <Lunar_Lander> ah
[23:53] <Lunar_Lander> and an NTX2 can do that too
[23:54] <jcoxon> sure
