[00:39] <Lunar_Lander> hi nigelvh
[00:39] <nigelvh> How's things?
[00:41] <Lunar_Lander> good thanks and you?
[00:42] <nigelvh> Doing pretty well. Working on a project, watching cartoons, drinking a mike's.
[00:44] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[00:44] <Lunar_Lander> is that a beer brand?
[00:44] <nigelvh> Yeah, it's technically a 'beer', but it's a hard lemonade.
[00:46] <nigelvh> This is the project I'm working on. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ACpA1XSbWTs
[00:47] <Lunar_Lander> ah
[00:48] <Lunar_Lander> cool!
[00:48] <nigelvh> I've had this stepper motor sitting around for years, so I finally decided to sand and stain a board real nice, and make a clock/gauge out of it.

[08:23] <cuddykid> it's rather windy here on the ground
[08:23] <cuddykid> should be interesting filling and launching
[08:23] <cuddykid> last time it swing right down and almost hit the ground - and it wasn't as windy as today!
[08:28] <RocketBoy> has anyone else noticed that the predictor has gone back to being flaky in the last few weeks - I guess its a wind pattern thing
[08:31] <cuddykid> RocketBoy: yep, it's been giving me some very odd predictions for certain times
[08:32] <RocketBoy> it was mostly OK for several months prior to that
[08:33] <RocketBoy> but was flaky in the first months of the year
[08:34] <RocketBoy> I thought someone had fixed the bug - but looks like it was just the wind patterns

[09:21] <Darkside> my server dropped off the web

[09:21] <Darkside> i haven't got my irssi configuration saved properly
[09:22] <kokey> and I had to look it up, and it's because the foil with metal fillings makes a battery that stimulates the tooth's nerves
[09:22] <fsphil> that explains the taste
[09:22] <kokey> Darkside: heh, same here, so joining all the channels and networks, it took ages to get the order back the way I wanted it to

[09:29] <navrac_work> ah cheat!
[09:30] <daveake> I assumed it was a gopro on a quadcopter
[09:30] <kokey> navrac_work: they're roughly 0.1kg
[09:30] <Darkside> this is why i want a AR Drone 2
[09:30] <MrScienceMan> daveake: next time, why not :D
[09:30] <daveake> indeed
[09:30] Action: kokey gets his coat
[09:30] <Darkside> also the AR Drone 2 has a 720p camera on it
[09:30] <Darkside> shit lens of course
[09:31] <MrScienceMan> i've always wanted one of the quadcopters that can lift a dslr
[09:31] <Darkside> but they can be made to carry a gopro
[09:31] <daveake> kokey tsk!
[09:31] <kokey> that the parrot one?
[09:31] <navrac_work> ok how much do the 100fg balloons cost.....
[09:31] <Darkside> kokey: yeah
[09:31] <Darkside> i'd be a little bit wary about flying it anywhere near the balloon tho
[09:31] <kokey> awesome
[09:31] <MrScienceMan> Darkside: for a shot like that
[09:31] <MrScienceMan> its totally worth it
[09:31] <Darkside> MrScienceMan: well i wouldn't get that close..
[09:31] <Darkside> given how the balloons bob around a lot
[09:31] <Darkside> but i'd try and film a launch from it
[09:31] <MrScienceMan> i've been to wierd places with my DSLR
[09:31] <UpuWork> I like the picture though
[09:32] <MrScienceMan> in wierd poses as well
[09:32] <MrScienceMan> worth it everytime
[09:32] <Darkside> the other option is to use a cherrypicker
[09:32] <UpuWork> can we use it on the Wiki somewhere if needed ?
[09:32] <Darkside> and make bloody sure you know the wind direction
[09:32] <daveake> Need a big cherry picker for some of my flight trains :D
[09:32] <MrScienceMan> UpuWork: no probs, as long as there credit to the author
[09:32] <UpuWork> You ?
[09:32] <Darkside> daveake: hah yep
[09:32] <MrScienceMan> yep
[09:33] <Darkside> we were going to fake a launch with a cherrypicker for a tv crew
[09:33] <UpuWork> PM me your name and a link to website

[09:33] <Darkside> can't wiat for that segment to come out

[11:27] <LazyL_M0LEP> WDHAB looks a little too weak for this set-up. I'll flip back to HABE.
[11:27] <navrac_work> wdhab is very very weak compared to habe
[11:28] <LazyL_M0LEP> Yeah. My colinear's just not up to seeing it strongly enough.
[11:29] <navrac_work> i can get it ok - but with so much preamplification going on the local qrm keeps knocking out one bit every sentence
[11:29] <Upu_M0UPU> using the HABAmp ?
[11:30] <navrac_work> yep - cant tell its even there without it
[11:30] <Upu_M0UPU> yeah they are good :)

[11:33] <navrac_work> I'd show you a pic of my hab amp...but I'd get too embarassed

[12:14] <Hix> Hi DrLuke when you mentioned the uBlox NEO-6 had onboard memory, the spec sheet doesn't seem to agree
[12:14] <WillDuckworth> Laurenceb - kPa
[12:14] <daveake> It's a 1000g. Dunno what payload weight though
[12:14] <DrLuke> hix, let me check
[12:14] <Hix> just wanted to check as fsphil wasn't too sure either, no point in buying one if it's same as MAX-6
[12:14] Penfold (~mike@ joined #highaltitude.
[12:14] <WillDuckworth> approx 1kg payload
[12:14] <Hix> DrLuke: http://www.u-blox.com/images/downloads/Product_Docs/NEO-6_ProductSummary_%28GPS.G6-HW-09003%29.pdf
[12:14] <Upu_M0UPU> how much gas did you put in it WillDuckworth ?
[12:14] <Laurenceb> WillDuckworth: then pressure is too high
[12:15] <Hix> http://www.u-blox.com/images/downloads/Product_Docs/LEA-6_ProductSummary_%28GPS.G6-HW-09002%29.pdf
[12:15] <daveake> At a guess of 500g, that's about 34km
[12:15] <DrLuke> http://www.u-blox.com/images/downloads/Product_Docs/u-blox6_ReceiverDescriptionProtocolSpec_%28GPS.G6-SW-10018%29.pdf
[12:15] <DrLuke> page 26, bottom diagarm
[12:15] <daveake> which makes it ~14:20 burst
[12:15] <WillDuckworth> not too sure on neck lift unfortunately
[12:16] <daveake> So you'll be OK to launch from about 3pm
[12:16] <DrLuke> Hix: and it DOES save, I've unplugged it completely from power (wtihout removing the backup battery though), and it still had everything
[12:16] <Hix> DrLuke: are you confusing with the pulse question someone else had?
[12:16] <Hix> ahhh, battery backup stores it.
[12:17] <DrLuke> ?
[12:17] <DrLuke> well
[12:17] <DrLuke> I have no idea quite frankly
[12:17] <Upu_M0UPU> it doesn't have any NV RAM you need a battery
[12:17] <daveake> OK, 1000g --> 32km --> burst about 14:10
[12:17] <Upu_M0UPU> or the external I2C RAM
[12:17] <Hix> Upu_M0UPU: that's what me and fsphil weer thinking
[12:18] <Hix> LEA-6 seems to have EEPROM onboard
[12:18] <Hix> *were
[12:18] <Upu_M0UPU> thats a bigger module though
[12:18] <Hix> yeah, found out
[12:18] <Upu_M0UPU> I maybe able to get some of those if you want them
[12:18] <Upu_M0UPU> just let me know
[12:18] Action: Penfold growls at IT, who have finally *finally* after four frodding weeks got me an IP phone that does more than just acts as an ethernet switch for my laptop. Hopefully I'll stop bouncing now.
[12:18] <Hix> was going to buy fsphil's module but it no NV then not useful for my purpose
[12:19] <Upu_M0UPU> you can put it on fairly easy
[12:20] <Hix> to be honest Upu_M0UPU it's probably easier to add an EEPROM to a MAX-6 using your new board man :)
[12:20] <DrLuke> Hix: just use a backup battery with your max
[12:20] <Upu_M0UPU> I'll see if its viable to put the pads on there
[12:20] <Upu_M0UPU> but yes battery is better option
[12:20] <DrLuke> it weighs next to nothing, certainly less than an eeprom ic with all the wires
[12:20] <Upu_M0UPU> new board has a battery clip on it
[12:21] <DrLuke> quite frankly I would solder the battery
[12:21] <DrLuke> it can always fall out of a clip for whatever reason
[12:21] <Hix> I was looking into something really small that didn't have to rely on battery DrLuke
[12:21] <Upu_M0UPU> these are the PCB mount ones DrLuke its likely to come out
[12:21] <Hix> wanted something that could run without ever needing configuring
[12:21] <Upu_M0UPU> the batteries are really small
[12:22] <DrLuke> hix: fair enough, but batteries last pretty long
[12:22] <DrLuke> I'd be so bold and say a year or 2
[12:22] <Upu_M0UPU> its this one : ome of those if you want them

[16:19] <Lunar_Lander> hello
[16:19] <Lunar_Lander> XABEN is bound to burst at 14 km?
[16:22] <navrac_work> looks like that antenna could rach it
[16:23] <Randomskk> sadly that's only half the original planned height
[16:23] <Randomskk> note that most sections are half into the previous section
[16:23] <Lunar_Lander> or why is the burst in the prediction set to 14 km?
[16:23] <Randomskk> but annoyingly the company putting the other antennas up messed up
[16:23] <Randomskk> so everything had to be done via cherry picker
[16:23] <Randomskk> which is only 17m tall

[17:01] <junderwood_M0JCU> :)
[17:01] <junderwood_M0JCU> navrac_work, going to land on you
[17:01] <daveake> Not just me that does that then :)
[17:01] <junderwood_M0JCU> (if it bursts)
[17:02] <navrac_work> depends on the parachute - lower altitude winds should bring it to me
[17:02] <junderwood_M0JCU> So. If it's got that high, it's probably >2m diameter.
[17:03] <junderwood_M0JCU> Which means it isn't legal.
[17:03] <navrac_work> not necessarily - could be just the right fill
[17:03] <junderwood_M0JCU> Good job noone can measure it :)
[17:03] <daveake> :)
[17:03] <daveake> Too high to matter really
[17:03] <navrac_work> not much payload weight=not much helium=not much expansion
[17:03] <junderwood_M0JCU> indeed
[17:04] <navrac_work> however with a 1.8m diameter - it does raise the question of how you get a 70cm quater wave in the 2m envelope
[17:04] <Upu_M0UPU> 23k
[17:04] <Randomskk> navrac_work: 16cm driven element
[17:04] <Randomskk> fits very nicely
[17:04] <Randomskk> at least 4cm of headroom
[17:05] <navrac_work> assuming the balloon has no neck...
[17:05] <Randomskk> navrac_work: or the antenna is taped to the neck, of course...
[17:05] <navrac_work> ah, ok. I'll use that excuse then
[17:05] <Randomskk> ;)
[17:06] <navrac_work> of course when it burst the parachute will be directly connected to the neck too!
[17:06] <navrac_work> cant type anymore - got to get 24k lined up...
[17:06] <junderwood_M0JCU> (rofl)
[17:06] <Randomskk> navrac_work: I'm not even sure a parachute is required.
[17:07] <Randomskk> there's no notice of variation which is what says you need a parachute
[17:07] <junderwood_M0JCU> still no sign of it slowing down

[18:33] <Lunar_Lander> yes
[18:34] <Lunar_Lander> is the stepper motor control computationally demanding for the arduino?
[18:34] <nigelvh> No, it's an external controller, so there's just two pins, one is high/low for step direction, and the other you just send a pulse for a step.
[18:35] <Lunar_Lander> ok
[18:35] <Lunar_Lander> I mean does that put a strain on the arduino? as I saw that the internal works for the BMP085 could be difficult
[18:36] <nigelvh> No, not really. I believe the only reason why they mentioned the BMP085 could be less fun is just that you have to figure out the calculations for barometric pressure. Certainly nothing beyond the capabilities of the arduino.

[19:16] <HixPad> Retarded question of the day: When specifying an rtty mark pin and a space pin. Do they both connect to the voltage divider and take over from each other in the code?
[19:16] <HixPad> On the ntx2
[19:16] <fsphil> ideally you'd only have the one pin
[19:16] <HixPad> Nice photos btw cuddykid
[19:16] <nigelvh> I'm not sure what schematic you're referencing, but I'd guess they'd each have a separate voltage divider as you're wanting two different levels.
[19:17] <fsphil> but if you're using two, normally you'd only have one on at a time
[19:18] <HixPad> Ok, I was reading through Ava code from GitHub Upu had specified a mark pin and a space pin. In the wiki test doc there was only one pin
[19:18] <fsphil> yes, it used to be common to run two pins
[19:18] <fsphil> I'm not sure why
[19:18] <HixPad> Right so kiss deems one pin better?
[19:18] <fsphil> yes
[19:19] <HixPad> Righty no
[19:19] <HixPad> Ho rather
[19:19] <fsphil> makes the code a lot simpler
[19:19] <fsphil> and just all round make sense
[19:19] <fsphil> +s
[19:22] <HixPad> Is there a ref snippet of one pin rtty on paste in or GitHub anywhere?
[19:22] <fsphil> same code, just instead of toggling two pins you just toggle the one
[19:23] <Upu> HixPad I really would not use my original ava code
[19:23] <Upu> its dreadful
[19:24] <HixPad> No I'm just using existing code to enable me to properly appreciate the structure and syntax better
[19:24] <HixPad> By using I mean reading and annotating on a4
[19:25] <HixPad> But I am getting there. I now understand how to parse the nmea and use sprintf to construct a string for rtty
[19:25] <HixPad> Well the theory of it
[19:25] <fsphil> I enjoyed doing that bit
[19:26] <HixPad> Like pins in eyes....
[19:26] <HixPad> For me
[19:26] <HixPad> But I will win
[19:27] <Lunar_Lander> but I based my whole thing around the tutorial with two-pin control
[19:27] <Lunar_Lander> that is not good as I read now?
[19:27] <fsphil> it works fine Lunar_Lander, just one-wire is simpler
[19:28] <Lunar_Lander> ok
[19:28] <fsphil> It's not something to scrap pcbs or programs over :)
[19:28] <jcoxon> i still use 2 pin
[19:28] <jcoxon> just habit
[19:29] <fsphil> you can actually get four levels out of that, but I can't think of any use for that
[19:29] <Lunar_Lander> four levels?
[19:30] <fsphil> two bits
[19:30] <fsphil> 00, 01, 10 and 11
[19:30] <fsphil> normally the rtty code would only ever use 01 or 10
[19:30] <Lunar_Lander> ah

[19:37] <HixPad> Looked at the Wikipedia description and not really much the wiser
[19:38] <fsphil> are you familiar with RS232?

[19:38] <jonsowman> nice one mattbrejza
[19:38] <jonsowman> HixPad: read up on FSK
[19:38] <fsphil> there's also start and stop bits :p
[19:39] <mattbrejza> i suppose the rs232 'layer' is the only bit that was missed
[19:42] <Upu> FSK works as well
[19:42] <Upu> sort of
[19:42] <Upu> on an NTX2 via PWM
[19:43] <HixPad> fsphil: I understand the very basics of rs232 in that you set a baud and transmit bits at that rate
[19:44] <HixPad> Fsk seems to make the whole thing sound a little more digestible
[19:44] JFS1 (6d99771d@gateway/web/freenode/ip. left irc: Quit: Page closed
[19:44] <fsphil> yea
[19:44] <fsphil> it's basically rs232, but instead of changing a voltage to represent the bits, you change a frequency

[19:45] <HixPad> Right so if I get the principles of rs232 and Fsk I should have a better understanding of what is going on
[19:45] <jonsowman> correct
[19:46] <HixPad> *google is my friend
[19:46] <jonsowman> FSK is the modulation scheme, RS232 is the "line code" as it were
[19:46] <HixPad> When you know what you are searching for ;)
[19:46] <jonsowman> that does help
[19:47] <HixPad> Yup
[19:53] <HixPad> So is pwm just creating a 1 or a 0 at 0.02 intervals
[19:54] <HixPad> And the string is being converted into binary?
[19:55] <nigelvh> The string already exists in binary, you're just sending out the bits one by one.

[21:38] <lyra2> jonsowman, thanks
[21:38] <lyra2> was about to ask where to buy them
[21:38] <jonsowman> Lunar_Lander: yeah, same ones
[21:39] <jonsowman> i don't think you can buy direct from Saft though
[21:39] <jonsowman> MDS are a distributor
[21:39] <jonsowman> UK based
[21:39] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[21:42] <lyra2> http://www.atbatt.com/product/6710.asp 17Ah, very nice
[21:42] <jonsowman> yeah they're crazy
[21:42] <jonsowman> also very expensive
[21:43] <lyra2> not that bad, i was expecting hundreds for one battery
[21:43] <Lunar_Lander> but wait
[21:43] <Lunar_Lander> the datasheet says 2.6 Ah for the LS14500
[21:43] <lyra2> Operating Temperature Range: -60°C/+85°C (-76°F/+185°F)
[21:44] <Lunar_Lander> doesn't have the ultimate lithium something like 3 Ah?
[21:44] <lyra2> the biggest problem i gues will to figure out how to charge them

[21:49] <Lunar_Lander> that strange plot with the bars looks like an ad to me not like tech data
[21:50] <Lunar_Lander> does anybody have the energizer ultimate lithium AA datasheet at handß
[21:50] <Upu> whatever
[21:51] <Lunar_Lander> I got the datasheet
[21:53] <Lunar_Lander> 3000 mAh seems to be correct

[22:26] <DrLuke> 5' ?
[22:29] <Lunar_Lander>
[22:29] <Lunar_Lander> like 5° antenna elevation
[22:31] <Lunar_Lander> I am just wondering
[22:32] <Lunar_Lander> lipolys output 3.7 V
[22:32] <Lunar_Lander> would that even be enough to power an arduino and stuff?
[22:33] <BrainDamage> they don't output 3.7V fixed, they output 4.2V or so when charged, and 3V when discharged
[22:33] <BrainDamage> and 3.7V most of the time
[22:33] <BrainDamage> you'll need a voltage regulator
[22:33] <BrainDamage> either linear, or switching, switching would be better
[22:33] <lyra2> so, i am out of luck: i cannot find rechargeable saft batteries to buy anywhere
[22:34] <lyra2> they are selling only non rechargeable
[22:34] <lyra2> e. g. MP 176065 - good one, but where to buy one?
[22:35] <jonsowman> LiSOCL2s aren't rechargable
[22:35] <Lunar_Lander> yeah I got a regulator
[22:35] <Lunar_Lander> I was just wondering
[22:35] <Lunar_Lander> BrainDamage, switching = step-down?
[22:35] <BrainDamage> I'd use a buck boost
[22:35] <BrainDamage> so it can do both step up and down
[22:35] <BrainDamage> and use the full batt swing
[22:36] <lyra2> only li-ion are rechargable
[22:36] <BrainDamage> if you're tight on weight, a simple linear regulator is the simplest
[22:37] <lyra2> why they are not selling those?! nah....
[22:44] <lyra2> are there any other good (military/space grade) battery makers?
[22:52] <Laurenceb_> the lithium polymer primaries get even higher energy density
[22:53] <Lunar_Lander> what does this one do btw? https://www.sparkfun.com/products/8249
[22:54] daveake (~daveake@daveake.plus.com) joined #highaltitude.
[22:54] <fsphil> pretty much what the description says ;)
[22:54] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[22:55] <Lunar_Lander> what if I load 2 ultimate lithiums into that?
[22:55] <fsphil> you can get the converters on their own board
[22:55] <Lunar_Lander> ok
[22:55] <fsphil> you'd get 5v
[22:55] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[22:55] <Lunar_Lander> but not longer runtime I think?
[22:55] <Lunar_Lander> I mean we now increased from three to four cells
[22:55] <Lunar_Lander> so that is no way to spare cells?
[22:55] <daveake> linear or switching?
[22:57] nick_ (~nick_@cpc5-oxfd23-2-0-cust350.4-3.cable.virginmedia.com) joined #highaltitude.
[22:58] <Lunar_Lander> my regulator is linear
[22:58] <fsphil> the one you linked to earlier is switching
[22:58] <daveake> Well adding an extra cell will give you a little more life
[22:59] <daveake> For switching it gives you a lot more
[22:59] <Lunar_Lander> yeah
[22:59] <Lunar_Lander> I was thinking about if I should replace my regulator
[22:59] <daveake> For what reason?
[23:01] <daveake> Can we hurry up it's past by bedtime :)
[23:02] <Lunar_Lander> yeah
[23:03] <Lunar_Lander> DrLuke said that linear models create much heat
[23:03] <Lunar_Lander> and step-downs are more efficient
[23:03] <DrLuke> they waste power
[23:03] <daveake> Of course they do. You're a physicist. Do the calculation.
[23:03] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[23:03] <Lunar_Lander> thus the thought of replacing
[23:03] <daveake> Whether you care or not is a different matter
[23:04] <fsphil> nite!
[23:04] <daveake> nn!
[23:04] <Lunar_Lander> good night
[23:04] <BrainDamage> if the battery lasts enough for a flight + margin, the regulator being inefficient is not much of a concern
[23:04] <daveake> If you have enough run time, and you don't need to cut down on the number of cells, then linear is fine. It's simpler/cheaper and much much much less noisy (electrically)
[23:04] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[23:04] <BrainDamage> actually, you could think as benefit, builtin heater :p
[23:05] <Lunar_Lander> just wanted to say that
[23:05] <Lunar_Lander> :)
[23:05] <daveake> In other words, if you don't have a problem, don't try to fix it
[23:05] <Lunar_Lander> ok
[23:05] <daveake> Heat can be helpful (though excess heat, as in my Pi flight, isn't)
[23:05] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[23:06] <Lunar_Lander> on the ground the max temp inside was 45°C
[23:06] <daveake> My next Pi flight will be the first of my trackers to use a switching supply. That should tell you something/
[23:06] <daveake> 45 is fine
[23:07] <Lunar_Lander> OK
[23:07] <Lunar_Lander> yea

[23:08] <daveake> In the case of the Pi, using switching regs I can get the total power consumption down from ~5W to ~2W. That's a big saving. Means the run time more than doubles, from less than 6 hours to more than 12. Or I could use fewer or smaller batteries.
[23:08] <daveake> For my Arduino trackers, they run for long enough on AAAs anyway
[23:08] <daveake> For very light trackers, a step-up means you can use a single AA, saving weight. Important for pico flights for example.
[23:09] <daveake> SFor your flight I doubt there's any point in using a switcher.

[23:17] <SpeedEvil> daveake: what ahve you done? just 3.3, or the 1.8v rail too? Or gone all the way, and vcore?
[23:18] <daveake> The Pi? 2 regs, one for 3V3 and the other for 5V (for the webcam only, really)
[23:18] <daveake> Onboard 3V3 reg removed
[23:18] <SpeedEvil> ah
[23:18] <daveake> Diminishing returns after that
[23:19] <daveake> The 3V3 reg and the Eth/USB chip are the hottest parts on the board
[23:19] <SpeedEvil> Well - if you did vcore, you could probably get another halving
[23:19] <daveake> I doubt it
[23:20] <SpeedEvil> oh - you know about the ethernet chip oops?
[23:20] <daveake> The model A is supposed to be <200mA. That would be a good saving
[23:20] <SpeedEvil> the 1.8v reg on the ethernet chip is accidentally wired in parallel with the real 1.8v reg
[23:20] <daveake> eh?
[23:20] <daveake> wo
[23:20] <SpeedEvil> so some pis the ethernet chip reg takes all the load
[23:21] <daveake> ffs
[23:21] <SpeedEvil> hence it gets hot.
[23:21] <daveake> oh that is so silly
[23:21] <daveake> ok in that case sorting that will make a big difference
[23:21] <SpeedEvil> yeah.
[23:21] <SpeedEvil> plus - what's the CPu volts - .8v?
[23:21] <daveake> pass
[23:22] <SpeedEvil> Directly reg that, you get to 80% or so power saving.
[23:22] <SpeedEvil> for the core, anyway
[23:22] <daveake> OK, so model A plus doing that might be a good option
[23:22] <SpeedEvil> Or just get a proper powersaving board.
[23:22] <daveake> Don't need ethernet at 100k :)
[23:23] <SpeedEvil> properly
[23:23] Action: SpeedEvil sighs.
[23:23] <daveake> Yeah, there are better boards that the Pi. Unless of course the objective is to fly a Pi :)

[23:24] <SpeedEvil> I was earlier complaining that I couldn't find nexus 7 boards to play with.
[23:24] <SpeedEvil> I found a solution.
[23:24] <daveake> You found something using one ?
[23:24] <SpeedEvil> It involved a rock, and gravity. :/
[23:25] <daveake> Newton would be proud
[23:26] <SpeedEvil> The edge did end up sort-of-milled at one point
[23:27] <Lunar_Lander> xD
[23:27] <SpeedEvil> Annoyingly - the display works fine. It's just spanged off 2cm triangle at teh corner, and the touchscreen doesn't work.
[23:27] <SpeedEvil> And - well - the operation without the touchscreen is kinda limited.
[23:44] <gonzo__> I assume XABEN was recovered
[23:46] <daveake> Guess so
[23:48] <Lunar_Lander> btw does someone have Matlab/Scilab experience?
[23:49] <gonzo__> good. Almost bulseyeing an airfield (well private strip)
[23:51] <daveake> I need to get some of those 100g balloons. Seem like fun.
[23:54] <gonzo__> do they fit within the <2mtr envelope?
[23:54] <daveake> Just. Burst spec is 1.8m. Steve put the parachute inside the balloon
[23:54] <gonzo__> brave
[23:54] <daveake> The tracker would need to be in/on/near the neck
[23:55] <gonzo__> there was a hell of a lot of flutter
[23:55] <daveake> That's probably why then
[23:56] <daveake> I was using a yagi in the loft. Craptastic in that direction - worked fine for HABE ealier but got no decodes at all from XABEN
[23:56] <gonzo__> I got a few lines decoded on the big yagi
[23:57] <gonzo__> though I have to bring the mast down and check the wiring, as I suspect it's H polarised
