[08:33] <fsphil> near is relative. it was suppose to be in july
[08:34] <fsphil> was hoping to avoid another winter launch
[08:34] <number10> thats a shame - slow permissiona and poor weather ?
[08:34] <number10> s
[08:35] <fsphil> bit of both yea
[08:35] <fsphil> all the predictions seem to be scotland or the irish sea atm
[08:35] <fsphil> have been for ages
[08:38] <eroomde> number10: we did one at ears once
[08:38] <eroomde> jcoxon and steve and i and doug ellison
[08:38] <eroomde> totally forget which one but probably 2008
[08:38] <eroomde> anyway i think it went up to about 28km and landed about 1km away
[08:38] <eroomde> and just straight up and straight back down
[08:38] <number10> thats amazing
[08:38] <eroomde> we were lying on the ground with binos tracking it visually
[08:39] <number10> presumably a nice sunny day

[11:13] <DrLuke> :/
[11:13] <navrac_work> on wed morning they decided they lost it so amazon dispatched another one
[11:13] <navrac_work> next day delivery again
[11:14] <navrac_work> guess what still hasnt turned up
[11:15] <fsphil> do you know what carrier?
[11:15] <ALLCAPS> 434.650MHz
[11:16] <navrac_work> if you live in a remotish area where they havent got any other deliveries they dont bother and return it to sender. When i asked a delivery driver off the record what happens, he said they save up all the deliveries to remote areas for a few days - as its cheaper to refund amazon than deliver it on time
[11:16] <navrac_work> and if someone complains they say its lost and then send it back to amazon when they 'find' it

[14:37] <eroomde> ah ok
[14:37] <eroomde> it was someone
[14:37] <eroomde> i recall they might have been driving an inductive load
[14:38] <Laurenceb> http://piholder.com/raspberry-pi-cases/5-raspberry-pi-case.html
[14:38] <Laurenceb> first pro case ive seen
[14:38] <eroomde> and so it occured to me randomly during lunch that some back voltage from the inductive load might have driven the v_out side above the v_in side of the reg, above a diode threshold voltage, causing a sort of short which woud clamp the reg output voltage down
[14:39] <Laurenceb> hmm
[14:40] <Laurenceb> maybe thats why there are diodes after the vreg on st discovery boards
[14:40] <Laurenceb> ive removed the diodes on all my discoveries
[14:41] <Laurenceb> as they result in piss poor voltage stability

[16:12] <navrac_work> btw eroomde - the max6 is lovely and jitter free <<2ns at 6mhz - take it off frequency by a few hz and FM!
[16:14] <navrac_work> really nasty at 7mhz
[16:16] <nosebleedkt> lets see who is a linux guru here
[16:16] <nosebleedkt> :P
[16:16] <nosebleedkt> i compiled gcc with multilib. i created both 32&64bit binaries.
[16:16] <nosebleedkt> but the 32bit binary was linked against a 'leaked' version of glibc under /tools/lib
[16:16] <nosebleedkt> propably the compiler was build with that info.how can i change the configure of the gcc?
[16:16] <nosebleedkt> to link things under /lib where my 32bit glibc resides
[16:17] <eroomde> navrac_work: interesting
[16:17] <eroomde> what i have observed at 10mhz is that the jitter builds up
[16:17] <eroomde> so form a ns or so to about 60ns
[16:17] <eroomde> compared to a paerfect square wave this is
[16:17] <navrac_work> rather drifty till it gets gps time but stable even with no actual satellite lock
[16:17] <eroomde> and then goes 'ping' back to 0, like an oldfashioned typewriter
[16:18] <navrac_work> try something like 6000010 and its vile
[16:18] <eroomde> so i assumed something like error accumumlated between the gps's local clock and some sattelite disciplined counter
[16:18] <nosebleedkt> .
[16:18] <eroomde> which it then violently resets
[16:19] <navrac_work> i only had the probe on for a couple of minutes cos my hand got tired - but the jitter was consistent and small.
[16:19] <eroomde> s'ok then
[16:19] <Laurenceb> navrac_work: so 6mhz is good?
[16:19] <eroomde> keep at it!
[16:19] <Laurenceb> what about 8?
[16:19] <Laurenceb> is there a 5x pll ic thats nice ?
[16:19] <navrac_work> 6mhz is good - most other frequencies are very very bad
[16:19] <eroomde> a multiple of the local clock?
[16:20] <Laurenceb> or maybe the local clock
[16:20] <eroomde> factor*
[16:20] <Laurenceb> but in that case how do they tune it
[16:20] <Laurenceb> maybe they actually use a vctcxo
[16:20] <navrac_work> sadly i hoped that i might just be able to change the timepulse frequency to do small shifts - but it goes really nasty
[16:20] <Laurenceb> and tune to gps time
[16:20] <Laurenceb> yeah
[16:20] <eroomde> hmm, i'd have thought the local clock would be a bit higher unless they have a separate one doing the sampling
[16:20] <Laurenceb> this is one reason id try vcxo
[16:20] <Laurenceb> they can pll off it
[16:20] <navrac_work> yes ive got one running here, its pretty good
[16:21] <Laurenceb> i meant the tcxo whatever that clks the thing
[16:21] <kokey> nosebleedkt: ouch, I tend have a completely independent directory tree for each target platform, or an independent VM for each, since mixing it always leads to complications for me
[16:21] <Laurenceb> you have a vcxo using varicaps?
[16:21] <Laurenceb> or a vctcxo
[16:21] <navrac_work> except it has tri state input pins that it says you should leave floating for some settings, but you have to load them and release them for it to select the right multiplier
[16:21] <Laurenceb> ah
[16:22] cuddykid (~acudworth@cpc2-basf8-2-0-cust23.12-3.cable.virginmedia.com) joined #highaltitude.
[16:22] <navrac_work> I did VCTCXO>x3 frequency multiplier yesterday and that worked nicley - very stable and could change the freq with a filtered pwm
[16:23] <navrac_work> so could do domino and very low drift
[16:23] jonquark (jonl@nat/ibm/x-coecyabsscwisrqb) left irc: Remote host closed the connection
[16:23] <navrac_work> but i blew up the vctcxo this morning and hadnt got a spare so this afternoon decided to do the timepule x5 instead
[16:24] <Laurenceb> oops
[16:24] <navrac_work> which is a cheap one chip method of stabilising an rfm22
[16:25] <navrac_work> Ive got to wait till monday for the replacement vctcxo
[16:26] <navrac_work> fing RS i bought two crystals from the variable frequency oscillator range - which turned out not to be voltage controlled at all - a pig to solder and i spent ages trying to work out why they wouldnt tune
[16:27] <Upu> sounds interesting navrac_work
[16:28] <Upu> be amazing to have no drift and the ability to do the different modes
[16:28] <nosebleedkt> .
[16:28] <navrac_work> well for 3v3 its a chap way of sorting out the rfm's. but no use for domino
[16:29] <kokey> I thought I'll actually have some time to myself tomorrow
[16:29] cuddykid (~acudworth@cpc2-basf8-2-0-cust23.12-3.cable.virginmedia.com) left irc: Quit: cuddykid
[16:29] <navrac_work> so its back to the vctcxo's for that - but ive got the component count down now
[16:29] <kokey> now I'm helping someone move
[16:31] <navrac_work> but its tricky trying to get a stable output with a processor running at 4mhz as the difference between the switching frequency required and the pwm means the filtering is a bit critical
[16:32] <Laurenceb> i was thinking of clocking the timer from an external source
[16:32] <Laurenceb> i.e. from the gpio on the rfm22b
[16:32] <Laurenceb> so you can clk timer at 15mhz
[16:33] <Laurenceb> http://i.imgur.com/BIb1h.jpg
[16:33] nosebleedkt (~nose@ppp079167006091.access.hol.gr) left irc: Ping timeout: 240 seconds
[16:39] <navrac_work> by default gpio2 gives 1mhz clock output - enough to start up and switch its output to something faster
[16:43] <Laurenceb> oh nice
[16:43] <Laurenceb> as soon as the power is connected?
[16:43] <navrac_work> thyere is one thing that i would like to try to stop the drift on tx start on the rfm is there is a line in the datasheet which says the vco is calibrated every time the synth is enabled - in certain operations this may be disabled by changing the appropriate register - but it neglects to say which one
[16:44] <navrac_work> laurenceb - yes its the power up default
[16:45] <navrac_work> i dont suppose youve got a link to the register description for the rfm have you - i cant find it now
[16:45] <Laurenceb> search for si4432
[16:45] <navrac_work> ah found it an440
[16:46] <navrac_work> yeah i only use silabs datasheets, the hope ones are just search and replace si4432/rfm22b silabs/hope
[16:51] <Laurenceb> yep
[16:52] <navrac_work> hmm either its one of the 'reserved' registers or they are lying

[17:46] <eroomde> mr L. Lander
[17:47] <eroomde> speaking of which, all quite on that front so far today
[17:48] <eroomde> so today we made a simple radio ranging thing
[17:49] <eroomde> all it needs is a bent pipe receiver at 10mW transmitter on the balloon
[17:49] <eroomde> and a ground station to send a specially constructed tone
[17:49] <eroomde> and then listen to the reply
[17:49] <eroomde> it occurs to me that with 3 listeners, you could probably do balloon localisation to within about 500m-1km or so over the uk
[17:50] <eroomde> which might be a fun thing to try
[17:50] <eroomde> this is, 3 listeners who can send the ranging tones
[17:50] <eroomde> it's based on the same principle we were looking at for the landing radar for our hovering rocket
[17:51] <eroomde> but can get away with being much simpler for a sacrifice in accuracy. but 500m-1km is no problem really for rough balloon aquisition
[17:51] <eroomde> i'm also thinking it might work for super simple dumb payloads
[17:51] <eroomde> super lightweight ones, even
[17:55] <eroomde> hmm, continuiing this monologue
[17:55] <eroomde> one could find the distance to your local fm repeater
[17:55] <eroomde> that would be a nice way of upsetting hams and testing experimentental radio stuff
[17:55] <eroomde> double tick

[20:22] <Lunar_Lander> hi MickMondo
[20:23] <MickMondo> Hi ya...
[20:23] <MickMondo> Just at work thought I'd pop on here
[20:24] <MickMondo> I was pestering everyone on here a week or so ago about the RFM22 ... I've now got it working .. yippy
[20:24] <Upu> congrats Mick
[20:24] <Upu> ultra light payloads ahoy
[20:24] <MickMondo> Hi Upu
[20:25] <Upu> see my results from the 1.8V run time ?
[20:25] <MickMondo> ha ha, just finnished design ready to etch
[20:25] <MickMondo> yes I did, pretty poor ....
[20:25] <MickMondo> ha ha joking
[20:25] <MickMondo> amazing
[20:25] <Upu> lol
[20:25] <Upu> just a bit better than I was expecting
[20:26] <MickMondo> cant wait for your test flight,
[20:26] <MickMondo> what does it weigh all in, capsule atenna the lot ..?
[20:26] <Upu> well if you use a AAA 15fg
[20:26] <Upu> 15g
[20:27] <Lunar_Lander> cool!
[20:27] <MickMondo> sorry about the spelling, Im not checking it, crap typing lol
[20:27] <Upu> possibly less if you use Aerogel :)
[20:27] <fsphil> you could launch with just a parachute and a light breeze
[20:27] <MickMondo> is that with a capsule too..?
[20:27] <Upu> no
[20:27] <Lunar_Lander> XD
[20:27] <Upu> thats with battery antenna and bubble wrap
[20:28] <MickMondo> ahh
[20:28] <Upu> probably won't launch that "configuration"
[20:28] <MickMondo> thats lite
[20:28] <Lunar_Lander> ah btw, how can it work at 1.8V with one cell? Lithium?
[20:28] <MickMondo> dont tell him ha ha
[20:28] <Upu> electronic magic Lunar
[20:28] <Lunar_Lander> stepup
[20:28] <MickMondo> yes thats it
[20:29] <Lunar_Lander> ah the TI one
[20:29] <Lunar_Lander> I know that one
[20:29] <Lunar_Lander> :)
[20:29] Action: Upu looks at the bot
[20:29] <Upu> well 61200 actually
[20:29] <MickMondo> I'll send you a mail about that Upu... I had a look at your circuit dia
[20:29] <Upu> ok
[20:29] <Upu> any issues ?
[20:30] <MickMondo> ah, that make sense
[20:30] <Upu> I'm on hols from tomorrow so ask me now or you're not getting an answer for a week :)
[20:30] <MickMondo> you had it listed as a 01 which is fixed voltage

[20:30] <Upu> yes
[20:31] <MickMondo> but you had voltage divider resistor ..?
[20:31] <Upu> For 3.3V R1 = 0R0 , R4 = unpopulated
[20:31] <Upu> i.e VOUT -> FB
[20:31] <MickMondo> yes,
[20:31] <Upu> For 1.8V with the 61200
[20:31] <MickMondo> dont need the resistors
[20:31] <Upu> R1=510k , R4=196k
[20:32] <MickMondo> for 1.8
[20:32] <Upu> yes
[20:32] <Upu> 3.3V fit the 61201 , 1.8 fit the 61200

[20:34] <Lunar_Lander> hello nosebleedkt
[20:34] <Upu> it doesn't have one
[20:34] <Upu> by 0R0 across R1 you are linking VOUT to FB
[20:34] <Upu> R4 = unpopulated
[20:34] <MickMondo> cool thats what I thought, its your schmatic then
[20:35] <Upu> see the schematic I just PM'd you

[20:48] <MickMondo> got anything planned
[20:48] <MickMondo> launch wise that is
[20:49] <Lunar_Lander> cool
[20:50] <Upu> well the noise problem is a byproduct of the boost converter
[20:50] <Upu> Darkside is looking at ways of quieting it down
[20:50] <Upu> might be a design issue too
[20:50] <MickMondo> Ok on transmission ..?
[20:51] <Upu> fine on TX
[20:51] <Upu> not so good on RX
[20:51] <Upu> you'd need a serious bit of amplification to get through the noise
[20:51] <MickMondo> yeah when I see the resistors I thought it was that
[20:51] <MickMondo> really
[20:51] <Upu> there is a large and a small decoupling cap

[20:56] <Upu> thats just from the data sheet

[21:03] <Upu> happy to have people question it :)
[21:03] <Upu> don't forget to have a via under the TPS module so you can solder it through
[21:03] <MickMondo> yeah,
[21:04] <MickMondo> got myself a new airflow today..
[21:04] <MickMondo> I wonder if the noise is on the line or RF
[21:05] <cuddykid> Upu: did you use the spark fun RFM22 eagle footprint on your board?
[21:05] <cuddykid> going to use the rfm instead of ntx2 in next pcb
[21:05] <MickMondo> No I draw them myself
[21:07] <Upu> Probably did yes
[21:07] <Upu> yes
[21:07] <Upu> its a Sparkfun one
[21:07] <cuddykid> cheers :)
[21:08] <MickMondo> sorry thought that was aimed at me ..lol
[21:08] <Upu> needs some investigation Mick
[21:08] <MickMondo> yeah..
[21:08] <Upu> it may just be what it is
[21:08] <Upu> maybe pickup in the battery leads
[21:08] <Upu> maybe design
[21:08] <MickMondo> thats true, but for what it can do it must be a good thing
[21:09] <MickMondo> a single cell, coooool
[21:09] <Upu> yep
[21:09] <Upu> I don't think we are anywhere near the limits of what this can do either
[21:09] <MickMondo> I think they suffer with noise, it kinda says that in the data
[21:10] <MickMondo> no true, cool find
[21:10] <Upu> if you want to do RX use a linear regulator
[21:10] <Upu> probably going to be carrying more batteries anyway as if you're RXing you are probably going to cut down...
[21:10] <MickMondo> yesh at the end of the day if your uplinkling with cutdown weight is not an issue
[21:11] <MickMondo> thats a nice board you have there
[21:11] <Upu> I think you have to be very specific as to what you want the board to do
[21:11] <MickMondo> you need to make it much much bigger though lol
[21:11] <Upu> as you end up with all sorts of conflicting design requirements
[21:12] <Upu> that was designed for long duration pico flights really
[21:12] <MickMondo> I know I was just messing
[21:12] <Upu> all good questions thoug
[21:13] <Upu> though
[21:13] <MickMondo> any idea of launch
[21:13] <Upu> end of October
[21:14] <Upu> not sure about the 1.8v module
[21:14] <MickMondo> I need to get building, been so busy and that transmitter done my head in
[21:14] <Upu> 3.3v module will be going up with an Adafruit Ultimate GPS along for the ride
[21:14] <Upu> will still be 25g
[21:14] <MickMondo> whats wrong with that then
[21:14] <MickMondo> 1.8v
[21:15] <Upu> Adafruit module doesn't run at 1.8v

[22:31] <m0psi> hi all, got some questions re cameras, are there any souls out there with a little time please?
[22:31] <jonsowman> ask way
[22:31] <jonsowman> *away
[22:31] <m0psi> thanks jonsowman
[22:32] <m0psi> looking at canon, cos i can use chdk
[22:32] <m0psi> however, looking at spec, the cameras seem to be speced at 0-50 deg celcius
[22:33] <m0psi> so, is this just a cadgy company, or are they really that intolerent
[22:34] <m0psi> i can't see how you can insulate the lense bit from the cold, so the camera is going to get cold for sure
[22:34] <Randomskk> they're generally fine
[22:34] <m0psi> (btw, I'm a newbie, looking to get the first flight out)
[22:34] <Randomskk> in fact I can't think of a single case where a canon camera has failed where cold is the suspect
[22:34] <Randomskk> wrong settings or batteries or something maybe, but
[22:34] <Randomskk> they seem fine in HAB temperatures.
[22:34] <m0psi> hmm, so they are conservative estimates on the spec
[22:35] <m0psi> it gets down to -50 or so right?
[22:35] <Randomskk> roughly. maybe.
[22:36] <m0psi> ok, next question, what canon models have performed well?
[22:36] <SpeedEvil> things may differ if you try to them them on when cold
[22:36] <m0psi> or, a different way of asking, which to avoid?
[22:36] <SpeedEvil> but if on from launch, they heat lots
[22:36] <m0psi> ah, good point
[22:37] <m0psi> i was thinking of putting a heated jacket, with minimal current
[22:37] <m0psi> but that would be extra battery weight of course
[22:38] <m0psi> so, canon models to avaoid/go for?
[22:39] <sm1thson> Has anyone tried hand warmers to keep the temps up?
[22:39] <m0psi> i saw some project somewhere where they did put handwarmers in
[22:40] <Randomskk> not really worth it
[22:40] <Randomskk> you don't generally need to
[22:40] <m0psi> the are quite weighty though, and i can't imagine they stay warm for that long
[22:40] <Randomskk> and also a lot of them require oxygen
[22:40] <m0psi> there are ones which you boil, which changes the chemical structure, and they when you trigger them, there is an exothermic reaction
[22:41] <m0psi> they are sealed
[22:41] <Randomskk> yes
[22:41] <Randomskk> they would work
[22:41] <Randomskk> but see point (a) re: not needing it
[22:41] <m0psi> y,
[22:41] <Randomskk> I would keep them for use in your gloves on launch day when it's cold
[22:41] <m0psi> so, it seems that the trick is to trun them on, at launch
[22:42] <BrainDamage> because electronics already heat up stuff by working
[22:42] <daveake> m0psi I prefer the A490 and 495 as they're about the lightest ones that use AA batteries. Both are fine, as is the A480 which is a bit heavier. Others have used the A560 with good results.
[22:42] <BrainDamage> with the exception of the power radiated from the radio module, all energy from the battery goes to heat
[22:42] <BrainDamage> ( ok that one is heat too, but doesn't stay in the box )
[22:43] <m0psi> thanks daveake, i'll take a look on ebay
[22:43] <Randomskk> the heat doesn't all stay in the box either ;P
[22:43] <daveake> 2 places to look re choosing a Canon - first the wiki page gives weights etc - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canon_PowerShot_A
[22:44] <daveake> Second the chkdk wiki http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/FAQ
[22:45] <m0psi> y, i was going to check on chdk site to be sure it has an os
[22:45] <m0psi> also, i was going to make sure the resolution is decent
[22:45] <m0psi> i did not want to send it up, and get lousy photos
[22:45] <daveake> You may need patience on ebay to get a good price
[22:46] chris_99 (~chris_99@unaffiliated/chris-99/x-3062929) left irc: Quit: Leaving
[22:47] <daveake> I'm not sure resolution is that big a deal. Clouds are fluffy and there's a lot of atmosphere between camera and ground
[22:48] <m0psi> y, i guess, there resolution will not be the limiting factor, but i did not want a 3MP one
[22:48] <daveake> I was about to suggest anything from 5MP up, but that's just a guess

[22:52] <Lunar_Lander> we have seen a big evolution there
[22:52] <Lunar_Lander> I recently saw that the first digital camera had 0.1 MP
[22:53] <m0psi> :-)
[22:53] <m0psi> they've scaled back the development, when they realised that beyond 14MP, there really is no advantage for the average punter
[22:54] <m0psi> i think you're right, we got to these giddy heights very quick
[22:54] <m0psi> i remember in 1999 having a 3MP was a big deal
[22:55] <m0psi> and memory for that matter. 2GB on a micro SD card is pretty cheap now
[22:55] <Lunar_Lander> actually Wikipedia mentions that Fairchild made a CCD with 0.01 MP that was integrated into a camera in 1976
[22:55] <Randomskk> 32GB on a microSD card is pretty cheap now!
[22:55] <m0psi> whereas a 16Mb usb stick was a biggie not that long ago
[22:55] <Randomskk> we only can't make them smaller because you couldn't fit the connectors on and you'd lose the sodding card all the time
[22:55] <Randomskk> insane
[22:56] <Lunar_Lander> Nokia made a smartphone with a 41 MP camera
[22:56] <Randomskk> plus the data transfer rates are way too low compared to the capacity
[22:56] <Randomskk> insane.
[22:56] <m0psi> y, pretty wild
[22:56] <Lunar_Lander> but Wikipedia says that people don't like it due to oversampling decreasing picture quality
[22:56] <Laurenceb_> theres 64GB micrSD
[22:56] <Lunar_Lander> yeah, SDXC
[22:57] <m0psi> y, exactly, imagine having holiday snaps at 41MP, you'd need a few Tb disks to store the damn wedding photos!
[22:57] <BrainDamage> the size is not a huge deal, it's that you're sampling with so much resolution that you're going way past the lens's resolution on the die size
[22:58] <BrainDamage> almost a factor of 10
[22:58] <Randomskk> meh. oversampling can help reduce noise.
[22:58] <m0psi> ok, so there's a A490 for ?32, is that a reasonable price?
[22:59] <BrainDamage> sure, after lowpassing and resampling to a more sane res
[22:59] <BrainDamage> but do you think people are going to do that?
[22:59] <BrainDamage> moar pixels is bettah
[22:59] <Randomskk> no reason the camera can't do that
[23:00] <BrainDamage> -> users will complain that their pics are not 40MP :p
[23:00] <Lunar_Lander> xD
[23:00] <Randomskk> don't need to advertise the native pixel resolution of the sensor
[23:00] <Randomskk> just the output resolution and the low noise
[23:00] <Lunar_Lander> someone said to me that the old films would correspond to 35 MP digital or so
[23:01] <m0psi> it depends on the ISO etc
[23:01] <BrainDamage> Randomskk: but they did!
[23:01] <m0psi> a fast film is pretty grany
[23:01] <Lunar_Lander> that was when I asked why Titanic HD was possible to make
[23:01] <Lunar_Lander> and he said that the film was scanned with new technology or so
[23:01] <m0psi> i got the impression that ISO 100 is about 14MP
[23:02] <Lunar_Lander> i.e. that you can show "old" movies on HDTV because of the high resolution

[23:15] <Randomskk> hey ed, we have a gas oven and things keep burning on the bottom
[23:15] <Randomskk> I hear pizza stones might help regulate heat
[23:15] <eroomde> yoyo sucks aweful terrible catastrophic imbecile wtf
[23:15] <Randomskk> you seem like the type of person to have an opinion on that
[23:15] <eroomde> yes, a pizza stone will help
[23:15] <eroomde> not so much regulate, i don;t think
[23:15] <eroomde> but good for baking
[23:15] <eroomde> let it reach equilibrium for a bit first
[23:16] <Randomskk> other people suggest these cooler baking trays that have a trapped layer of air as insulation
[23:16] <Randomskk> which helps stop the bottoms of things burning
[23:16] <Randomskk> I baked cookies and when the bottoms are just right the tops and middles are a little less done than I'd like (if I let the tops be done the buttons burnt)
[23:16] <eroomde> for about 20 mins or so
[23:16] <Randomskk> we had toad in the hole and the bottom 3mm or so of pastry burnt out
[23:16] <Randomskk> hmm
[23:17] <eroomde> but yeah a baking tray will reflect ir back
[23:17] <Randomskk> it seems like all the heat from the fire in the bottom of the oven is just making cookies hot at the base
[23:17] <Randomskk> wondering if putting a baking tray on the bottom shelf to block ir
[23:17] <Randomskk> well. to insulate a bit. it'd absorb and re-emit
[23:17] <BrainDamage> is it ventilated?
[23:17] <Randomskk> probably also help with redirecting convective air flow
[23:17] <BrainDamage> because it'll block convection
[23:17] <Randomskk> not actually sure. don't think so.
[23:17] <eroomde> that's the aga thing too
[23:18] <eroomde> a 'cold shelf' (baking tray) between the thing and the hot surface helpslower the temp
[23:18] <Randomskk> think I might pick up an oven thermometer from town tomorrow
[23:18] <Randomskk> this 'gas mark' thing is a joke
[23:18] <eroomde> gas ovens are not nice
[23:19] <Randomskk> but gas hobs are lovely.
[23:19] <eroomde> at least the ones i have been exposed to
[23:19] <eroomde> yes
[23:19] <Randomskk> also having an oven after three years of no oven is much nicer.
[23:19] <eroomde> duel fuel was a requirement for myoxford house
[23:19] <Randomskk> at home we have really nice gas hobs and an electric fan oven. which is the way to do it.
[23:19] <Randomskk> still. https://www.dropbox.com/s/02xneetgk3mra2g/2012-10-05%2016.58.10.jpg
[23:19] <Randomskk> not unsuccessful
[23:19] <Randomskk> need to work on my size regularity perhaps
[23:19] <BrainDamage> +1 on gas hobs and electric oven
[23:20] <Randomskk> might hold back some choc chips next time to put right at the top of the cookies so some are clear after baking
[23:20] <Randomskk> used some spare dough to make rasin cookies which were actually really nice, too.
[23:20] <Laurenceb_> hi eroomde
[23:21] <Laurenceb_> feeling ok now?

[23:24] <chris_99> hey eroomde
[23:24] <chris_99> i need to get an oven soon to solder a ublox :)
[23:25] <eroomde> nah u can do that by hand no problem
[23:25] <eroomde> just need a decent tip on a decent iron
[23:25] <chris_99> how? the leads are actually under the chip
[23:25] <chris_99> i mean they don't protude at all
[23:26] <eroomde> there should be a bit of exposed pad
[23:26] <Randomskk> they stick up the sides don't they
[23:26] <eroomde> if you can get the tip of the iron onto that, and add some solder, the solder will be drawn underneath
[23:26] <Randomskk> and like have a cutout
[23:26] <Randomskk> totally fine

[23:28] <chris_99> hmm i didn't notice exposed pad actually i could be wrong though
[23:29] <eroomde> i think it's there
[23:29] <Randomskk> isn't it like, on the side.
[23:29] <Randomskk> I might be thinking of a different one
[23:30] <eroomde> sure but the pcb footprint has a little exposed iirc
[23:31] <Randomskk> yea

[23:31] <eroomde> see
[23:31] <eroomde> b4 ovening
[23:32] <chris_99> yeah i just had a look there is a little bit exposed
[23:32] <chris_99> i think i'll go for the ovening approch too though
[23:33] <eroomde> it's good yep
[23:33] <chris_99> i just like the idea of the oven doing the hardwork for me
[23:34] <eroomde> yes it makes lots of sense
[23:34] <eroomde> and is pleasing
[23:34] <eroomde> like muffins or yorkshire puddings
[23:34] <eroomde> the results that come out are like magic compred to what went in
[23:34] <chris_99> yeah heh
[23:35] <DrLuke> is that soldered?
[23:35] <DrLuke> the paste looks so pasty
[23:35] <chris_99> that's before reflow in the oven
[23:35] <Randomskk> eroomde: have you seen the new sarentels?
[23:35] <Randomskk> they are so much happier.
[23:35] <eroomde> show
[23:35] <Randomskk> not got any photos handy
[23:35] <Randomskk> imagine a small PCB sticking out of the middle with three large pads on both sides
[23:36] <Randomskk> and none of the super fragile shit

[23:36] <Randomskk> I'll take a photo tomorrow maybe. we have some samples.
[23:36] <eroomde> after
[23:36] <DrLuke> love it :)
[23:38] <chris_99> eroomde, what's the connector for, the NTX2?
[23:38] <chris_99> (the gold one)
[23:41] <DrLuke> yeah looks like it
[23:41] <eroomde> yeah sma for angenna
[23:41] <DrLuke> looks like an SMA connector
[23:41] <DrLuke> ah
[23:41] <DrLuke> I've bought an SMA cable today, simply because that's cheaper than buying a male and female sma jack, lol
[23:41] <eroomde> antenna*
[23:41] <DrLuke> and it comes with 3m of handy coax
[23:41] <eroomde> ouch but true
[23:42] <eroomde> so long as the sma's are rusabler
[23:42] <BrainDamage> DrLuke: even from dx?
[23:42] <DrLuke> BrainDamage: ebay
[23:42] <DrLuke> I will solder the groundplane antenna directly onto one connector
[23:42] <DrLuke> and solder the other end with a bit of cable to the ntx2
