[05:48] <daveake> Upu is doing the video feed this time
[05:49] <daveake> Weather - well, overcast, but some thinner bits of cloud. No rain atm. Expecting some light showers
[05:49] <nick_> What happens if it rains?
[05:49] <nick_> We just sit it out at your place?

[05:53] <nick_> is there any concern about the expected wind speeds?
[05:53] <daveake> Tomorrow is much sunnier, however the wind predictions aren't good
[05:53] <daveake> No should be fine
[05:54] <nick_> What's the cut off speed?

[05:55] <daveake> Oh
[05:55] <daveake> I'm confused
[05:56] <daveake> If it's windy at the launch site it can be tricky to get the neck lift right
[05:56] <daveake> And if it's really windy it's difficult to launch safely
[05:56] <daveake> Today it's ok
[05:56] <nick_> Do you worry more about high wind at altitude or at the ground?
[05:56] <nick_> OK
[05:56] <daveake> Altitude - no don't care, so long as the prediction is safe
[05:57] <nick_> Do you have a link to today's prediction?
[05:57] <daveake> We chased one of mine to Belgium, and at one point we were doing "motorway speeeds" and it was doing more than double that
[05:57] <nick_> That must have been fun
[05:58] <daveake> yup

[09:32] <fsphil> what's the width bug?
[09:32] <G0MJW> Yes the width is variable but if you have a large desktop with two monitors it uses the entire width and a tiny height.

[09:33] <fsphil> that link will take you straight to the viewer, but they're not broadcasting just yet

[10:15] <G0MJW> Just looked at radar - a nasty looking patch of rain on the way. perhaps they will launch in time to miss it. http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/public/weather/observations/?tab=map&map=Rainfall&zoom=5&locId=350928
[10:19] <MI0VIM> just started raining on the webcam
[10:20] <WillDuckworth> well done fsphil on passing exam

[10:40] <LazyLeopard> Getting PAVA on 434.199.4
[10:40] <M0MDB> thats because he is at the launch site
[10:40] <G0MJW> Tracker says he is in Leeds!
[10:41] <M0MDB> I dont think he changes location as he will be chasing soon
[10:41] <M0MDB> best look to see where M0UPU_chase is
[10:42] <G0MJW> There is a noce pub just below where it is now.
[10:42] <G0MJW> nice.
[10:42] <Randomskk> MI0VIM: woo congrats :D
[10:42] <LazyLeopard> Ah! MI0! (Sorry, a bit slow here!)
[10:43] <G0MJW> Fr those looking at the satellite image - speculate what that is just about 1km South. It is "Works" but has a red sign off the M4.

[13:05] <fsphil_MI0VIM> just did :)
[13:05] <daveake> lol
[13:05] <fsphil_MI0VIM> it was basically dead
[13:05] <fsphil_MI0VIM> I couldn't login
[13:05] <LazyL_M0LEP> PAVA is faint and wibbly on 434.200
[13:05] <jdtanner> Chrikey&Buzz is coking through loud and clear here!
[13:06] <jdtanner> coming not coking
[13:06] <jdtanner> I need to shut up now
[13:06] <Darkside> coming and coking eh?
[13:06] <Darkside> sounds like a wild launch
[13:06] <LazyL_M0LEP> Can't decode PAVA here at the moment.
[13:06] <jdtanner> Why do I feel like today is a write off :)
[13:07] <G0MJW> Was someone going for an altitude record?
[13:07] <Darkside> daveake: what was PAVA launched with?
[13:07] <daveake> sanslogc now working again cheers:)
[13:07] <Darkside> hwoyee neverburst?
[13:07] <fsphil_MI0VIM> hmm, glitchy packet
[13:07] <daveake> 1600 neverburst
[13:07] <fsphil_MI0VIM> sorry about that - I'll keep an eye on it, it should never have crashed
[13:07] <Darkside> daveake: underfiled?
[13:07] <Darkside> filled*
[13:08] <daveake> A little
[13:08] <Darkside> goddamnit
[13:08] <daveake> Going up quicker than we aimed at
[13:08] <Darkside> heh
[13:08] <fsphil_MI0VIM> 39.4km, whoa
[13:08] <daveake> Approaching Horus 15.5's position at #10
[13:08] <Darkside> well, you have 43.721km to beat
[13:08] <fsphil_MI0VIM> I can hear pie1
[13:09] <daveake> My base station program is showing the live record tables :)
[13:09] <Darkside> lol
[13:09] Action: DanielRichman can hear UAVA with no filter & the antenna that came with the ezcap
[13:09] <Darkside> DanielRichman: not surprised at all :P
[13:09] <Darkside> the issue will be if something strong near you keys up
[13:09] <Darkside> like, pagers
[13:09] <DanielRichman> i cannot however, decode it
[13:09] <Darkside> or whatever
[13:10] <Darkside> ok thats a problem too
[13:10] <DanielRichman> get callsign and part of a latitute
[13:10] <jdtanner> Was there a version of dl-fldigi for OSX to help with SSDV?
[13:10] <DanielRichman> but that's about it ;P
[13:10] <fsphil_MI0VIM> I'm not actually sure jdtanner
[13:10] <DanielRichman> jdtanner: one does not simply build dl-fldigi for osx
[13:10] <fsphil_MI0VIM> lol
[13:10] <Darkside> one simply does
[13:10] <Darkside> i did
[13:10] <jdtanner> lol...
[13:10] <Darkside> jdtanner: i think ssdv is covered
[13:10] <Darkside> track on eof the other payloads
[13:10] <jdtanner> Roger
[13:10] <Darkside> track PAVA
[13:10] <Darkside> only one receiver atm
[13:10] <DanielRichman> ah fair enough Darkside :P
[13:11] <Darkside> DanielRichman: i am, of course, awesome
[13:11] <Darkside> but anyway
[13:11] <WillDuckworth> can't quite decode pava
[13:11] <DanielRichman> Naturally. IIRC the jsoncpp library was causing trouble for james
[13:11] <DanielRichman> but i think it's ok now
[13:11] <daveake> Hey Darkside Upu here
[13:11] <daveake> shit routing on PCB >> Horus :P
[13:12] <jdtanner> I'm not surprised nobody in on pava&she is silent up here
[13:12] <DanielRichman> anyway linux and windows builds are fully automated. zero intervention required
[13:12] <jdtanner> Well, if anyone wants to share their latest OSX build then I'm happy to take it off your hands :)
[13:12] <DanielRichman> press button, get .deb & .exe. If only it was so simple...
[13:12] <Darkside> daveake: tell upu to diaf
[13:12] <daveake> lol
[13:13] <G0MJW> I thought modern macs could run Windows....
[13:13] <Darkside> also we don't use hydrogen yet
[13:13] <fsphil_MI0VIM> the next proper release will have all the proper ssdv bits in it, I'm not changing the on-air format now so it'll be stable
[13:13] <Darkside> G0MJW: some of us have ethical issues regarding that
[13:13] <G0MJW> And linux too
[13:13] <Darkside> linux is a bit harder
[13:13] <fsphil_MI0VIM> I run linux on my old ppc mac mini
[13:14] <fsphil_MI0VIM> actually runs very well
[13:14] <Darkside> ascent rate is slowing on pava..
[13:14] <fsphil_MI0VIM> nice image from pie1
[13:14] <Darkside> looks just like your
[13:14] <G0MJW> What just happened to PAVA? Frequency jumped
[13:14] <daveake> burst ?
[13:15] <Darkside> doppler due to burst i bet
[13:15] <Darkside> or you just bumped the dial
[13:15] <G0MJW> No - still going up
[13:15] <daveake> don't do that to me
[13:15] <Darkside> lol
[13:15] <Darkside> daveake: buzz burst
[13:15] <daveake> it is slowing
[13:15] <fsphil_MI0VIM> lol
[13:15] <G0MJW> But I missed half the packet re-tuning
[13:16] <daveake> if buzz burst something sup as its atteched to the others
[13:16] <Darkside> :P
[13:16] <fsphil_MI0VIM> pie just a little too weak for me
[13:16] <Darkside> nah, buzz lightyears head exploded
[13:16] <Darkside> due to the low pressure
[13:16] <LazyL_M0LEP> It's drifting down quite fast, so I'd guess auto-tune flipped the dial?
[13:16] <fsphil_MI0VIM> that's possible if it's enabled yea
[13:16] <fsphil_MI0VIM> these images are excellent
[13:17] <jdtanner> pava is all over the place
[13:18] <daveake> yeah images from Pi are great
[13:18] <fsphil_MI0VIM> I had by doubts about using a webcam
[13:19] <Darkside> whats dial on pava?
[13:19] <G0MJW> still 200
[13:20] <Darkside> need a bigger antenna
[13:20] <G0MJW> 434.200 that is
[13:20] <WillDuckworth> got some pava action

[13:28] <G0MJW> Burst of noise but going zero
[13:28] <fsphil_MI0VIM> so you where planning ahead all this time
[13:28] <WillDuckworth> latest pics look good from pie :)
[13:29] <G0MJW> And up - probably GPS uncertainty
[13:29] <fsphil_MI0VIM> ah, some new callsigns
[13:29] <number10_M0MDB> yes fsphil_MI0VIM, but at least I am still #1 with camera :)
[13:29] <fsphil_MI0VIM> for now :)
[13:29] <fsphil_MI0VIM> oh, did I say that out loud
[13:29] <daveake> Really impressed how well 300 baud is working - thanks all who are doing the SSDV :)
[13:29] <fsphil_MI0VIM> I got a packet!
[13:29] <daveake> 600 next time :D
[13:29] <daveake> Well done fsphil :)

[13:35] <fsphil_MI0VIM> nice cloud detail
[13:35] <WillDuckworth> if i can keep on pava and it's quite close i might ask the other half if we can have a 'trip out'
[13:35] <daveake> Surprisngly as we couldn't see any detail from the ground!
[13:36] <daveake> cool
[13:38] <fsphil_MI0VIM> pie1 is getting quieter
[13:39] <daveake> Bit of wind shear I think -soe changes of direction going on.
[13:39] <daveake> It faded out here then came back strong
[13:39] <daveake> I've lost some packets but none lost on the server atm
[13:39] <fsphil_MI0VIM> still a bit weak here .. it's probably sitting at an angle away from me
[13:41] <daveake> Expecting a burst any time now
[13:41] <G0MJW> Should be able to see PI it from here - where did I put that 1W laser pointer?
[13:42] <fsphil_MI0VIM> baked pi
[13:42] <G0MJW> Meanwhile, PAVA is falling slowly on a parachute at 30Km
[13:43] <daveake> That 12" 'chute is obviously too much :p

[13:44] <G0MJW> How hi will pi rise?
[13:44] <daveake> Erm expecting 34km ....
[13:44] <daveake> Maybe the 1200 is the new 1600 :p
[13:44] <daveake> We aimed for 5.5m/s so not expecting great height
[13:44] <number10_M0MDB> got 37.5 from the last one on ANU

[13:45] <fsphil_MI0VIM> at least Eben doesn't have to eat that hat now
[13:45] <daveake> Yeah but not with 1kg of 3 payloads below ....
[13:45] <fsphil_MI0VIM> fade
[13:45] <G0MJW> It will pass over me within about 500m
[13:45] <fsphil_MI0VIM> big fade
[13:45] <fsphil_MI0VIM> it must be windy up there
[13:46] <fsphil_MI0VIM> you'd wonder how that's even possible
[13:46] <G0MJW> Actually, 200m. Glad there is no payload dropping facility

[13:51] <G0MJW> Yes. PAVA is 434.20045 for me
[13:51] <fsphil_MI0VIM> if it bursts lol
[13:51] <jdtanner> ta&will have a look&nothing here yet :/
[13:52] <jdtanner> Looks like it is just you G0MJW...
[13:52] <G0MJW> I think we need someone near Swindon to track pAVA as I will lose it. Water has again got into the coax!
[13:52] <jdtanner> Really faint here&can just about see something on the waterfall

[13:53] RocketBoy (~steverand@b01a8048.bb.sky.com) joined #highaltitude.
[13:53] <G0MJW> There is a mast head pre-amp, but it is powered through the coax. 12V turns the coax into a battery and tries to charge it with much noise created as a result. Wierd but true.
[13:53] <fsphil_MI0VIM> lol no
[13:53] <fsphil_MI0VIM> 39km
[13:53] <daveake> On a 1200 with 1kg of payloads. Unreal.
[13:53] <fsphil_MI0VIM> that's one high pi
[13:53] <daveake> Steve you might want to stock up on 1200's :p

[13:59] <fsphil_MI0VIM> lol, that's true

[14:01] <G0MJW> I was in Kingston Lisle on Tuesday.

[14:02] <LazyL_M0LEP> Hmmm UAVA has overtaken PAVA on its way down...
[14:03] <G0MJW> Unfortunately the 3G coverage round there is awful so not great for the video.
[14:04] <number10_M0MDB> fsphil: looks like sanslogic down
[14:04] <fsphil> tis
[14:04] <fsphil> should be back now
[14:05] <fsphil> or not
[14:05] <craag> wtf - all local qrm to me just disappeared.
[14:05] <craag> The entire sdr# waterfall is now dark blue, with the RTTY as bright as ever.
[14:07] <fsphil> restarting it again, sorry
[14:09] <craag> I've gone from not-quite getting a decode on UAVA, to getting 100% from PIE!!
[14:10] <meujo> PYSY start !
[14:10] <G0MJW> Moved over to UAVA as it is near the ground.
[14:10] <fsphil> yea.. is it nearby?
[14:11] <G0MJW> Yes - heading for Abingdon. Might be able toget it down to ground.
[14:11] <RocketBoy> Pava is coming down very slowly -4.2m/sec @ 20km = 1.05m/sec at ground level
[14:12] <fsphil> server's back on
[14:12] <G0MJW> That is why I stoped tracking Pava as I can go back to it later.
[14:12] <fsphil> and getting destroyed
[14:13] <G0MJW> No reasoning for that site.
[14:13] <RocketBoy> if there is no other explanation (like a large chute) then it might be a partial burst
[14:14] <number10_M0MDB> chute didnt look that large, 12" maybe
[14:16] <fsphil> I've disabled the live view page for the moment, packets are still being accepted however

[15:04] <M0UPU> pretty sure its burst Steve
[15:04] <LazyL_M0LEP> Initial descent looks too fast for it to have any balloon left...
[15:05] <fsphil> yea, it wouldn't have dropped so quickly initially if it hasn't burst
[15:05] <M0UPU> yeah its not a leak
[15:05] <fsphil> it was probably a clean burst, no balloon left attached at all
[15:05] <M0UPU> the payload fell <5m/s with no chute

[15:32] <daveake_> lol fsphil
[15:34] <LazyL_M0LEP> If PI's path is any guide, PAVA should turn south as it descends, so should end up closer to you than the M40...
[15:34] <G0MJW> BTW - why is PAVA not showing as having burst?
[15:34] <daveake_> probably because it's coming down so slowly?

[15:39] <fsphil> bit late, but I've got the site running faster
[15:40] <daveake_> :D
[15:40] <fsphil> the query for new image data was very slow, rewrote it.
[15:40] <fsphil> what was happening was those queries where not completing before the next wave started
[15:41] <fsphil> the overall number of queries just kept rising until the server decided enough was enough

[17:16] <G0MJW> Its not far after you rejoin.
[17:17] <junderwood> It will have stopped raining by the time you get there (acording to the radar)
[17:17] <G0MJW> The green bin looks a good place to stop
[17:18] <junderwood> The layby is just after the Little Chef and petrol station (which I think is being rebuilt)
[17:19] <G0MJW> Yes, just after the Western on the Green junction, the one I take to avoid J9 on the M40. Best route usually
[17:19] <G0MJW> Getting onto the A34 South is a bit confusing but once you have done it once.

[17:34] <NSS> yup.
[17:34] <NSS> cool you can see it here comes another
[17:34] <WJ9H> What's the frequency, I want to check HF...I know it's a long shot.
[17:35] <NSS> -34 or -43 dbm? real long shot but 10.145 USB and 1600 in waterfall
[17:36] <NSS> I see the altitude graph is plotting too,
[17:36] <WJ9H> OK, I loaded KB9KHO and hit autoconfigure. How often does it beacon?
[17:36] <NSS> 1 a min
[17:37] <NSS> if you hear this thats crazy
[17:37] <WJ9H> I got nothin. At least I know *how* to monitor on RF now.
[17:37] <daveake__> This rain is quite pissistant
[17:38] <WJ9H> Besides your home station, will there be other stations trying on HF to feed the tracking site?
[17:38] <NSS> yeah, all that is holding back launch is Steve or Brad to swap out the final, I'm too shaky anymore to do super micro surface mount stuff.
[17:38] <daveake__> I think we may need to break out the dolly mixture
[17:39] <NSS> yup thats the plan thats whats cool about this mode they do not HAVE to be locals, Of course us locals can like regular aprs send in reports, but anyone with propagation like in california can send in reports.
[17:39] <NSS> dolly mixture?

[19:52] <BrainDamage> it's hard to tell from that design
[19:52] <BrainDamage> connections are nonobvious
[19:52] <BrainDamage> what represents what
[19:52] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[19:52] <Lunar_Lander> wait
[19:52] <BrainDamage> but I'm suggesting that if you have to make another board
[19:53] <BrainDamage> consider a perfboard instead

[19:53] <Lunar_Lander> ok
[19:53] <Lunar_Lander> that also would spare having to cut tracks, right?
[19:54] <BrainDamage> yes
[19:54] <Lunar_Lander> I drew a crude sketch that looked like an eagle schematic
[19:54] <Lunar_Lander> here it is http://s.gullipics.com/image/3/b/b/5ztof4-jamhrx-peqo/Bildschirmfotovom20120714215322.png

[19:56] <Lunar_Lander> what do you think?
[19:57] <MrScienceMan> exercise drawing straight lines
[19:57] <Lunar_Lander> yes
[19:57] <Randomskk> maybe draw it in eagle
[19:57] <BrainDamage> looks normal, there's not much to it, the only thing I don't know is the R network for the NTX2, since I don't know the datasheet by heart
[19:58] <MrScienceMan> thats the one from ukhas wiki
[19:58] <Lunar_Lander> yeah
[19:59] <Lunar_Lander> Randomskk, yeah I began with that, the problem is that the NTX2 and the various sensors aren't represented in the libraries I got
[19:59] <Randomskk> it's not hard to add your own parts
[19:59] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[20:00] <Lunar_Lander> SFE made a tutorial about that I think
[20:00] <Lunar_Lander> another work to the first diagram
[20:00] <Lunar_Lander> her idea was to have each box on the sheet represent one hole in the board
[20:01] <DanielRichman> Lunar_Lander: you're in a chatroom full of people, most of which have had to represent the ntx2 in eagle at some point
[20:01] <Lunar_Lander> yea DanielRichman
[20:01] <DanielRichman> ok most might be a bit strong
[20:01] <Lunar_Lander> sorry
[20:01] <DanielRichman> anyway I can't remember where I got the part from but someone might :-)
[20:01] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[20:01] <Lunar_Lander> sorry

[20:05] <Lunar_Lander> hi RocketBoy
[20:07] <BrainDamage> you're not, you seem overconcerned actually
[20:08] <BrainDamage> just test your board, just please, if you ask for help, either use a more understandable schematic, or take the time to make a legend
[20:08] <Lunar_Lander> OK
[20:08] <Lunar_Lander> may I explain again what her motivation for that schematic was?
[20:09] <BrainDamage> you don't have to ask for permission to talk, this is not kindergarden :p
[20:09] <fsphil> "Just do it"
[20:10] <fsphil> "Unless it's illegal"
[20:10] <BrainDamage> "then just do it but make sure nobody knows about it"
[20:10] <fsphil> lol
[20:10] <Lunar_Lander> her idea was to plot the physical placement of devices and to plot where the wires run
[20:10] <Lunar_Lander> xD
[20:10] <navrac2> I've designed huge projects withschematics not too different from that - just worth tidying it up a bit for others to understand
[20:11] <Randomskk> Lunar_Lander: that's a perfectly good way of working out schematics, especially for stripboard projects
[20:11] <Randomskk> but, it's very hard to understand it quickly when just seeing that photo, whereas a proper schematic from eagle is much easier to understand quickly
[20:11] <navrac2> get some graph paper and use that for stripboard layouts
[20:11] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[20:12] <navrac2> you should think about making a homebrew pc - its probably easier than stripboard
[20:12] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[20:12] <fsphil> eagle loves you Lunar_Lander. join us
[20:12] <Lunar_Lander> yeah I already have it

[20:15] <navrac2> yep comfortably numb
[20:15] <DanielRichman> fsphil: success!
[20:15] <fsphil> it's a sort of success
[20:15] <daveake> Now do the opposite :)
[20:16] <Lunar_Lander> what do you think about what I did there?
[20:16] <DanielRichman> fsphil: you were feeling quite cold, so you wanted to burn some more power to warm up => success
[20:16] <navrac2> very readable
[20:16] <fsphil> indeed, although the server is in london somewhere :)
[20:16] <fsphil> I'm warming the place up a bit before I visit
[20:17] <navrac2> thats why london is always 2 degrees higher than the surrounding countryside

[20:19] <Lunar_Lander> what does that mean?
[20:19] <G0MJW> Must get one. And a lightbox. PCBTrain is a bit dear for one offs

[20:20] <Lunar_Lander> oh
[20:20] <G0MJW> Bubble burtsing
[20:20] <navrac2> Etching tank?? - a chinese take away carton andsome shaking.
[20:20] <BrainDamage> you can do better for 10$
[20:21] <G0MJW> Lightbox?
[20:21] <BrainDamage> nail art curing box
[20:21] <navrac2> sunshine or a desk lamp
[20:21] <BrainDamage> for 15$
[20:21] <Lunar_Lander> XD
[20:21] <fsphil> I've got a fairly big light box that I must get rid of
[20:21] <BrainDamage> the uv lamps are the perfect spectrum
[20:21] <fsphil> have no use for it whatsoever
[20:21] <navrac2> yep the nail drying box is what i bought
[20:21] <G0MJW> Oohh
[20:22] <BrainDamage> for the bubbling tank, get a cheap acquarium pump from dx.com
[20:22] <fsphil> aurora alert tonight
[20:22] <BrainDamage> and a 1L vertical food box from ikea
[20:22] <G0MJW> I was hoping to get a free cast off. We shall see if that pans out.
[20:22] <fsphil> and clear skies. that rarely happens
[20:22] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[20:22] <Lunar_Lander> BrainDamage, the board already does two things
[20:22] <Lunar_Lander> green LED turns on
[20:23] <G0MJW> for the etching tank that is. But I do need a lightbox (UV of course!)
[20:23] <Lunar_Lander> and NTX2 transmits
[20:23] <Lunar_Lander> xD

[20:27] <G0MJW> 36W! Crikey. How big are these?
[20:27] <navrac2> not very
[20:28] <BrainDamage> they are CCFL
[20:28] <BrainDamage> 4 tubes
[20:28] <BrainDamage> included in the package
[20:28] <G0MJW> How big a pcb?
[20:29] <BrainDamage> sec
[20:30] <BrainDamage> 15cm*15cm
[20:30] <BrainDamage> as etching tank, I use http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/90066708/#/80066723
[20:30] <Lunar_Lander> so is it difficult to make a PCB at home?
[20:30] <G0MJW> That is big enough! Eagle limits you to less.
[20:30] <fsphil> ah well, nearly got rid of it :)
[20:30] <BrainDamage> I don't use eagle
[20:30] <navrac2> its not too hard
[20:31] <BrainDamage> fsphil: well, if you can ship it for less than that
[20:31] <BrainDamage> try also an ebay auction
[20:31] <BrainDamage> Lunar_Lander: no
[20:31] <navrac2> I print out from eagle onto overhead film, then expose the board in the nail drier
[20:31] <navrac2> dip it into developer and agitate for a minute
[20:31] <Lunar_Lander> is there some sort of tutorial?
[20:31] zapag (c6167a9f@gateway/web/freenode/ip. left irc: Quit: Page closed
[20:31] <fsphil> I'm getting rid of all my etch stuff, don't have the space anymore
[20:32] <navrac2> dunk it in the etchant for about 5 mins and watch it and thats it
[20:32] <BrainDamage> Lunar_Lander: tons of tutorials on the net
[20:32] <navrac2> hardest part is the drilling
[20:32] <fsphil> smd parts help
[20:32] <BrainDamage> I drill the least possible
[20:32] <BrainDamage> I use dip parts as smd
[20:32] <navrac2> which is why I like surface mount
[20:32] <G0MJW> Drilling is less of a problem now - I do mainly surface mount
[20:32] <BrainDamage> I simply bend the legs 90°
[20:32] <fsphil> bend the pins out?
[20:32] <fsphil> hah
[20:32] <BrainDamage> and I'm using dip only because I got spares
[20:33] <BrainDamage> when I'll run out, I'll switch to smd completely
[20:33] <Lunar_Lander> drilling is for making the holes for through-hole components?
[20:33] <BrainDamage> yes
[20:33] <Lunar_Lander> ah
[20:33] <G0MJW> I don't mind dip - problem with SMT and home PCBs is the lack of a resist.
[20:33] <navrac2> the only real drawback of smd is working out what is what when youve dropped all the bits in a box - too small to read the numbers
[20:33] <BrainDamage> G0MJW: not an issue
[20:33] <BrainDamage> there's uv curing resist
[20:34] <G0MJW> Is there?
[20:34] <BrainDamage> sec
[20:34] <navrac2> yep comes in cans
[20:34] <BrainDamage> approx 8$ for 100g
[20:34] <BrainDamage> shipping included
[20:34] <G0MJW> Solder resist, not etch resist
[20:34] <navrac2> never tried it myself
[20:34] <Lunar_Lander> so the first thing is that you print out what Eagle outputs?
[20:34] <BrainDamage> http://srx.it.ebayrtm.com/clk?RtmClk&u=1H4sIAAAAAAAAAEWOy2qEMABF94L%2FIAzTXczDaKIQCmM3LR0YamdWQokYnOArxATp3zeuujkcLmdxT410yYefEkwTnFUZrTBLrs13QhAmcWS9eDpn2grCfd9T1cnfVDuo3Qxv9QXcH6D2VnaTAs069cqCq9xG8KWM1FYvA7hJvThwmbwCGKEBQFyinDJKEeXk9cfZcdN9K0yOS5bO7OVYjLTz1go5Des5e%2Ft8vJ9JoZ0Pfq8PX90SPA9m%2FgOzBS2yOJKrwIG6FyyOukBKSs7jSIelQJxzzBEpaThBUBZKOx79H9G%2FFMIHAQAA&ch=3&g=b7525daa1370a5a961a56935ff82e770&i=210195612&aii=
[20:34] <BrainDamage> it's called solder mask btw
[20:34] <BrainDamage> not solder resist
[20:34] <BrainDamage> and yes, solder mask
[20:34] <BrainDamage> uv - curable solder mask
[20:35] <Lunar_Lander> and you use that with an UV lamp to expose the PCB and then you need to etch it?
[20:35] <BrainDamage> 9$, not 8, sorry
[20:35] <BrainDamage> no, not that
[20:35] <BrainDamage> you use another chemical for etching
[20:35] <Lunar_Lander> yes
[20:35] <BrainDamage> that thing is to coat the pcb with a plastic
[20:35] <BrainDamage> to aid soldering
[20:35] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[20:35] <G0MJW> You are right of course. It has been a while. What I hate are vias.
[20:36] <Lunar_Lander> the wikibook I found says: print the board from EAGLE, expose the PCB with UV light, develop the PCB
[20:36] <navrac2> you buy boards pre coated with etch resist after that you can spray on solder resist and re expose it and develop that
[20:36] <Lunar_Lander> and then etch
[20:36] <BrainDamage> yes, you can actually get away witout UV
[20:36] <BrainDamage> using a method called iron-on
[20:36] <BrainDamage> by literally ironing a laser print of the tracks on the pcb
[20:36] <Lunar_Lander> yeah, they write about Toner in the german version
[20:36] <navrac2> first process is to etch off the copper. the optional second step is to sparay and etch off the unwanted solder resist
[20:36] <Lunar_Lander> ah
[20:36] <BrainDamage> toner transfer
[20:37] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[20:37] <Lunar_Lander> but wait
[20:37] <Lunar_Lander> may I interject a question?
[20:37] <BrainDamage> stop asking to ask :s
[20:37] <Lunar_Lander> what about multi-layer PCBs?
[20:37] <navrac2> seed studio
[20:37] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[20:37] <BrainDamage> order them
[20:37] <Lunar_Lander> ah
[20:37] <navrac2> but with some prasctise most boards can be done single or double sided
[20:37] <BrainDamage> 2 layers is ok to do at home, with a bit of complication
[20:38] <Lunar_Lander> ah
[20:38] <BrainDamage> > 2 starts to get rather complicated
[20:38] <BrainDamage> so it's easier to just order
[20:38] <Lunar_Lander> yeah
[20:38] <Lunar_Lander> and the idea was to use the stripboard for two reasons
[20:38] <Lunar_Lander> PCBs need practise
[20:38] <BrainDamage> also, even diy boards at home is not very economical
[20:38] <Lunar_Lander> Stripboards are like breaboards
[20:38] <navrac2> on hab boards theres no real need for more than 2 layers
[20:38] <Lunar_Lander> ah
[20:38] <BrainDamage> unless you aways do 1-off, and don't want to wait
[20:39] <navrac2> i havezero patience so i like homebrew
[20:39] <navrac2> nothing worse than waiting 3 weeks to spot anobvious fault
[20:39] <BrainDamage> did uk have 110 or 220 v mains?
[20:39] <navrac2> 240
[20:40] <navrac2> since 1930 something
[20:40] <BrainDamage> in that case, G0MJW: http://dx.com/s/aquarium+air+pump
[20:40] <BrainDamage> buy an acquarium pump from dx
[20:41] <BrainDamage> you might need a plug adapter
[20:41] <Lunar_Lander> xD
[20:41] <BrainDamage> but it's like 1$ extra
[20:41] <navrac2> i just use the old method and shake the board in the etchant
[20:41] <navrac2> or tilt it like a wave tank
[20:42] <BrainDamage> I cba for that
[20:42] <BrainDamage> I also use an halogen lamp to heat the etchant
[20:42] <BrainDamage> to speed up
[20:42] <navrac2> microwave for me!
[20:42] <Lunar_Lander> XD
[20:42] <BrainDamage> between the pump, and the ikea box, you should have spent ~10-15$
[20:42] <Lunar_Lander> BrainDamage, did you read the reasons why I chose stripboard?
[20:42] <BrainDamage> nope
[20:42] <Lunar_Lander> and the idea was to use the stripboard for two reasons
[20:42] <Lunar_Lander> PCBs need practise
[20:42] <Lunar_Lander> Stripboards are like breaboards
[20:43] <BrainDamage> cutting is kinda annoying imo
[20:43] <daveake> Breadboards are shit
[20:43] <fsphil> they are
[20:43] <fsphil> one minute they work, the next they don't
[20:43] <fsphil> *and nothing has changed*
[20:43] <BrainDamage> between stripboard and perfboard, I think perfboard is better
[20:43] <BrainDamage> you can route how you like
[20:44] <navrac2> I used to like the stripboard that had 3 holes as one pad etc
[20:44] <daveake> Yeah those aren't so bad
[20:44] <navrac2> lessuseful since dil's started dissapearing though
[20:44] <BrainDamage> G0MJW: to sum up, 15$ for tank and 20$ for uv
[20:44] <navrac2> must fix the space bar
[20:44] <daveake> I used that in PIE1 to hold the NTX2 and resistors, plugging in to the Pi
[20:45] <daveake> And another bit to hold the regulator
[20:45] <daveake> OK for simple stuff like that
[20:46] <G0MJW> $35 and $100 import duty plus post office rip off fees....
[20:46] <BrainDamage> no
[20:46] <navrac2> not for small things from dx
[20:46] <BrainDamage> I don't know for uk, but there's a limit
[20:46] <navrac2> and the nail drier is from the uk anyway
[20:46] <fsphil> how's the pi daveake?
[20:46] <BrainDamage> below that limit, you don't pay for duties
[20:46] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[20:46] <BrainDamage> and shipping was included in the prices I told you
[20:46] <G0MJW> Oh yes. Now they can charge for almost everything and they do because it is a big earner for them.
[20:47] <Lunar_Lander> ah what I meant with "stripboards are like breadboards" was the connection of the lines
[20:47] <G0MJW> £8 or £13.5 depending on just VAT or VAT plus duty. Stopped buying from the US.
[20:48] <BrainDamage> even for 6$ items?
[20:48] <navrac2> 6$ items tend to slide through
[20:48] <G0MJW> Not for $6 but not a lot is $6. $18 I think is the limit, inc shipping.
[20:48] <BrainDamage> even if vat is 20%, 20% of 6$is 1.2$
[20:48] <navrac2> mind you so did a roll of heptax - no duty on that
[20:48] <BrainDamage> not a big deal
[20:49] <G0MJW> I don't mind teh duty - it is the post office collection fee that is £8 or £13.5 and you have to go to the depot to pay it and collect.
[20:49] <BrainDamage> http://dx.com/p/2-5w-aquarium-air-pump-ac-220-240v-82604?item=9
[20:49] <Lunar_Lander> BrainDamage, and I once saw how to do connections on perfboard
[20:49] <BrainDamage> 7$
[20:49] <navrac2> yep - on anything more thanabout 24$ it isv annoying to pay the post office
[20:49] <Lunar_Lander> but it means that you have to cut very short wires sometimes?
[20:50] <BrainDamage> Lunar_Lander: for the perboard?
[20:50] <G0MJW> A really good way to build things is dead bug.
[20:50] <Lunar_Lander> yes
[20:50] <BrainDamage> just use the components leads for short wires
[20:50] <Lunar_Lander> ah
[20:50] <navrac2> I had a friend who built quite complex circuits just soldering them to each other and tinned copper wire.
[20:51] <navrac2> with copper wire from mains cable as the supply rails
[20:51] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[20:51] <navrac2> you could roll them up which was quite cool
[20:52] <Lunar_Lander> yes
[20:52] <Lunar_Lander> but isn't that a bad thing?
[20:52] <Lunar_Lander> i.e. to have a supply rail
[20:52] <Lunar_Lander> somone said that having everything in parallel is bad
[20:53] <navrac2> for the sort of things in hab it doesnt really matter
[20:53] <Lunar_Lander> yes

[20:54] <Lunar_Lander> ok
[20:54] <Lunar_Lander> I'll try working on the board again on Monday
[20:54] <Lunar_Lander> but I don't know
[20:54] <Lunar_Lander> feels like we failed
[20:54] <BrainDamage> Lunar_Lander: you don't have to redesign if it works
[20:55] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[20:55] <Lunar_Lander> I mean what works now is that the NTX2 works with Upu's example code

[20:55] <BrainDamage> then why do you repeat that you failed?
[20:55] <Lunar_Lander> ah maybe the other components don't work
[20:55] <Lunar_Lander> but you can't tell before you tested
[20:56] <BrainDamage> no point in getting pre-frustrated
[20:56] <fsphil> my mum does that
[20:56] <fsphil> worries about everything
[20:57] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[20:57] <Lunar_Lander> but I am dumb
[20:57] <BrainDamage> but here you're worrying about silly stuff, it's not potential problems that you can solve
[20:57] <Lunar_Lander> I brought my microSD breakout

[20:57] <Lunar_Lander> and I said to them: "OK we can use either OpenLog or this one"
[20:57] <BrainDamage> it's just stuff you have no control about, as in, test will arrive Monday
[20:57] <navrac2> lol - my daughter has just rung from latitude festival to play elbow live to us over the phone
[20:57] <fsphil> eek
[20:57] <Lunar_Lander> only then I noticed that OpenLog has 6 pins and the microSD has 7
[20:57] <Lunar_Lander> BrainDamage, yeah
[20:57] <Lunar_Lander> thanks :)
[20:58] <BrainDamage> sd should be spi
[20:58] <fsphil> you know that 7th pin is probably not needed
[20:58] <BrainDamage> and of the spi, only 2 wires are important
[20:58] <BrainDamage> the third is clock
[20:58] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[20:58] <Lunar_Lander> I mean we already soldered a 6 pin socket to the board

[20:59] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[20:59] <Lunar_Lander> I mean I only told them we had the choice of either of those
[20:59] <Lunar_Lander> OpenLog of course is a bit easier because it works on serial

[21:05] <Lunar_Lander> BrainDamage, and then I have to renew my team if it fails?
[21:05] <Lunar_Lander> or daveake suggested I should change my team
[21:06] <BrainDamage> this is my current expression: ._.
[21:06] <fsphil> what happened your nose?
[21:06] <Lunar_Lander> oh sorry
[21:06] <BrainDamage> swallowed it, along with hair, and earbrows
[21:07] <daveake> Well, LL, how long has it taken so far and how far are you away from flying something?
[21:07] <BrainDamage> really, go out, and drink a beer with your team

[21:07] <BrainDamage> it's not super complicated stuff that require high specialization, etc
[21:07] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[21:07] <BrainDamage> if you failed, try again
[21:07] <Lunar_Lander> I think we could fly in august
[21:07] RocketBoy (steverand@b01a8048.bb.sky.com) left #highaltitude.
[21:08] <daveake> I strongly suggest you stop thinking about stuff, chose what to do do and how (even if in the end it's not the best decision), and DO IT
[21:08] <navrac2> agreed
[21:08] <Lunar_Lander> ok
[21:08] <BrainDamage> don't forget the beer
[21:08] <daveake> Then with that experience, you'll make different decisions for next time
[21:08] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[21:08] <Lunar_Lander> I even did that on friday
[21:08] <navrac2> as a leader you dont always have to be right - just encourage people and make it happen - perfect or not
[21:08] <Lunar_Lander> yeah
[21:09] <daveake> I'd laugh at my first payload now, but it started me on a path to where I am now
[21:09] <Lunar_Lander> I want to talk with you about the humidity sensor
[21:09] <Lunar_Lander> I tried something on friday just because it seemed logical to me
[21:09] <navrac2> Im laughing at my current payload...
[21:09] <Lunar_Lander> xD
[21:09] <daveake> So stop worring about SD or Openlog, vero or PCB, this or that, just make a decision, make a payload, fly it, learn
[21:09] <BrainDamage> btw, ta sign of improvement, is looking back at your old work, and realizing it's shit
[21:09] <daveake> End of sermon
[21:09] <Lunar_Lander> I brought a step up that I still had from home and I thought, that the sensor needs 5V, we give it 5V
[21:09] <Lunar_Lander> yeah
[21:09] <BrainDamage> simply because you learned
[21:09] <Lunar_Lander> thanks
[21:10] <Lunar_Lander> so I put 3.3V from arduino into the stepup, 5V into the sensor and the signal back through a voltage divider
[21:10] <Lunar_Lander> and I noticed that the sensor was unresponsive
[21:11] hextic (~hextic@unaffiliated/hextic) left irc: Quit: Colloquy for iPhone - http://colloquy.mobi
[21:11] <Lunar_Lander> breathing on it etc. didn't move the reading at all, compared to connecting it directly to the Uno
[21:11] <Lunar_Lander> then I simply hooked it up on 3.3V directly to the Mega Pro
[21:11] <Lunar_Lander> and it gave similar readings as on the Uno
[21:11] <Lunar_Lander> (we calculated the new constants first)

[22:00] <Lunar_Lander> BrainDamage, do you know much about the analog inputs of the arduino?
[22:00] <BrainDamage> iirc it's a 10bit adc with ref to the Aref, which is basically Vcc

[22:01] <Lunar_Lander> yeah
[22:01] <Lunar_Lander> my thing is the AREF
[22:01] <Lunar_Lander> daveake posted me the arduino page about it but I got a question
[22:02] <Lunar_Lander> when we set the reference for the battery voltage measurement to 2.56V, can we run the reference for the humidity sensor at 3.3V again?
[22:03] <Lunar_Lander> i.e. can we call the 2.56V reference for the one thing and have the default reference for the other
[22:03] <BrainDamage> I forgot if the 2.56 is the internal or external one
[22:03] <BrainDamage> if it's the external, and you tied 2.56V do Avcc, then no
[22:04] <BrainDamage> at least not without an analogue mux
[22:04] zamabe (~zamabe@unaffiliated/zamabe) joined #highaltitude.
[22:05] <Lunar_Lander> yeah
[22:05] <Lunar_Lander> the mega has 1.1V and 2.56V as internal refs
[22:06] <BrainDamage> I guess you should be able to sw switch it

[22:09] <Laurenceb_> *loud
[22:09] <Laurenceb_> and nothing interesting
[22:09] <BrainDamage> check the datasheet

[22:30] <Lunar_Lander> BrainDamage, I got the datasheet and I found the ADC section
[22:31] <Lunar_Lander> do I have to look for settling time?

[22:32] <Upu> tired

[22:34] <Lunar_Lander> BrainDamage, I find something called conversion time
[22:34] <BrainDamage> that's not that either
[22:35] <BrainDamage> it's how much time passes when you call start converting and it finishes
