[00:32] <DanielRichman> he is not on the map because dl-fldigi has not uploaded his location

[00:54] <jcoxon> so it won't change until 0200 UTC
[00:54] <OZ1SKY_Brian> ahh great
[00:54] <jcoxon> and will switch back at 0700 UTC
[00:55] <jcoxon> oh i mean 0600 UTC
[00:55] <OZ1SKY_Brian> still hear it, but still too weak
[00:56] <OZ1SKY_Brian> I got a big hill in the direction blocking the signal
[00:56] <jcoxon> form the prediction it'll swing round
[00:57] <jcoxon> so when it does switch to slow-hell it'll transmit 1 string, turn off for 5 minutes and then transmit another
[00:57] <OZ1SKY_Brian> never tryed hell mode
[00:57] <jcoxon> its fun!
[00:58] <jcoxon> though as its not digital it won't upload to the server
[00:59] <OZ1SKY_Brian> ok i see. ive seen a youtube video about hell mode, but never tryed decode
[01:00] <Lunar_Lander__> jcoxon, does that happen automatically?
[01:00] <jcoxon> i guess we can post strings to the irc channel

[04:32] <KT5TK> I'll fix a few errors and add some improvements
[04:32] <heathkid> nice
[04:32] <KT5TK> They're not easy to build though. The parts are tiny!
[04:33] <KT5TK> If it's your first tracker I'd go with a Trackuino Shield
[04:33] <heathkid> a "kit" would be nice so I didn't have to souce individual parts...
[04:34] <heathkid> Trackuino Shield?
[04:34] <heathkid> I'm SO lost and feel like I know absolutely nothing right now... I'm embarrased
[04:36] <KT5TK> http://www.trackuino.org/
[04:36] <CapnKernel> Hello folks. I provided the PCBs that are inside PICO.
[04:36] Action: heathkid is *lost*
[04:37] <CapnKernel> If someone is interested in putting together a kit, it's flown before, and others are interested, then I'd be interested in doing the fulfillment for the kit.
[04:37] <MLow> ok....anyone know a good tracker to buy
[04:37] <MLow> something small, light, tracks reliably
[04:37] <CapnKernel> In other words, I'd do the sourcing of the PCB and all the parts, so you (the designer) don't have to.
[04:38] <CapnKernel> KT5TK: For example, Pecan v2 :-)
[04:38] <MLow> i dont really want a kit
[04:38] <MLow> I just want something that works
[04:38] <CapnKernel> Even better if the design is open source
[04:39] <MLow> i was looking at SPOT
[04:39] <KT5TK> The Pecan design is free for all
[04:39] <KT5TK> http://kt5tk.tkrahn.com/download/PecanNut/
[04:39] <heathkid> but a lot cheaper if someone buys in quantity
[04:40] <KT5TK> I don't have he time for support but you're free to sell kits for it if you want
[04:40] <MLow> if someone can build me a trackuino or pecanNut, send it to me
[04:40] <MLow> what would be the price?
[04:40] <heathkid> same here
[04:40] <heathkid> that's my problem... I don't have time
[04:40] <MLow> i dont have the skill evidently
[04:40] <MLow> i have spent MONTHS trying to get my trackuino working
[04:41] <heathkid> I just want to fly something ASAP just to get a taste...
[04:41] <CapnKernel> MLow: Have you asked for the help of others, for example, at your local hackerspace?
[04:41] <KT5TK> https://www.mouser.com/ProjectManager/ProjectDetail.aspx?State=EDIT&ProjectGUID=f23a581d-3969-4fda-8e3e-b7dcedd1698f these are almost all parts needed
[04:41] <MLow> CapnKernel: local hackerspace?
[04:41] <heathkid> how much $ for a built tracker?
[04:42] <MLow> can i throw money at you and you fix it?
[04:42] <heathkid> I buy a balloon, some helium, add a few sensors and a pre-built tracker...
[04:42] <MLow> worked another double today, have sunday off, first day in forever off
[04:43] <MLow> dont wanna work on the trackuino, but failing having another solution working I will end up picking at it
[04:43] <KT5TK> If you want a out of the box solution for a tracker look at argentdata's OT+
[04:44] <KT5TK> http://www.argentdata.com/products/otplus.html
[04:45] <heathkid> hmm...
[04:45] <KT5TK> They also sell kits for cheap
[04:45] <heathkid> not really what I'm looking for
[04:46] <heathkid> I'm looking for a way to help you KT5TK

[04:48] <CapnKernel> (But I understand you're interested in something prebuilt)
[04:48] <MLow> i was joking because there is only one hackerspace here and they closed up recently for an undefined amount of time
[04:48] <CapnKernel> Well that's no fun!

[04:58] <MLow> and i can follow instructions, but sometimes shit dont work :(
[05:00] <heathkid> I just don't have the time to build anything from scratch

[05:01] <heathkid> we'd have balloons all over the place
[05:01] <MLow> not sure that is a good thing
[05:01] <KT5TK> I also started with OT1+ and trackuino. A OT1+ kit is really affordable and gets you a working modem. You can also buy a OTUSB ready built
[05:01] <heathkid> there are only about 100 of us here
[05:02] <heathkid> from all around the world
[05:03] <heathkid> OTUSB?
[05:03] <KT5TK> http://www.argentdata.com/products/otusb.html
[05:04] <heathkid> not bad for $.... what else is needed?
[05:04] <KT5TK> A FM transmitter
[05:05] <MLow> a gps
[05:05] <MLow> so basically, its a uC
[05:05] <MLow> setup to be an ax25 modem
[05:05] <heathkid> why can't that all be on one board?
[05:05] <KT5TK> High altitude GPS to be precise

[05:14] <Darkside> tbh ordering 10 isn't that bad
[05:14] <Darkside> 10 5x5cm pcbs works out to about USD$19
[05:15] <Darkside> then you have options of free shipping (2-3 weeks) or DHL (USD$20 - 3 days)
[05:20] <MLow> it seems like your making the free shipping sound like an option

[05:52] <heathkid> last weather balloon I launched was when I was about 13 and shut down O
[05:52] <heathkid> O'Hare International...
[05:52] <heathkid> oooops
[05:53] <MLow> so KT5TK for the pecan nut
[05:53] <MLow> you use a 14.44 mhz crystal?
[05:53] <MLow> and basically it is your own radio
[05:55] <KT5TK> Yes, the ADF7012 has its own PLL
[05:55] <KT5TK> It's not really a crystal, it's a VCXO
[05:55] <MLow> ah
[05:55] <MLow> i thought you switched to a fixed one
[05:56] <heathkid> fixed would be easier
[05:56] <heathkid> pick a xtal and that's our standard for HAB
[05:56] <KT5TK> Yes, it has only one frquency, but there is a varactor
[05:56] <KT5TK> for smal frequency shifts for FM modulation
[05:57] <MLow> i mean im trying to decide if i want to order another hx1
[05:58] <heathkid> why/how did you choose 14.44 MHz?
[05:58] <KT5TK> 19.44 MHz VCXO was cheap and available
[05:59] <KT5TK> First I used 20 MHz, but that was more expensive
[05:59] <KT5TK> 19.44 works just fine
[05:59] <KT5TK> Just need to calculate different parameters.
[06:00] <heathkid> why not use a xtal then? I've had them made before... pretty cheap
[06:00] <heathkid> and stable
[06:00] <KT5TK> HX1 is nice, but I wanted frequency agility
[06:01] <KT5TK> It should be possible to build a 2m/70cm dualband Pecan with the ADF7012
[06:01] <MLow> yeah
[06:01] <heathkid> that would be sweet!
[06:02] <KT5TK> That's one thing I want to implement in Pecan2
[06:02] <MLow> know what i want

[06:09] <MLow> dont know if i can look that up somewhere or....
[06:09] <navrac2> I wonder if theres a global tuner in sweden
[06:09] <MLow> whats your tracking system

[06:14] <KT5TK> PICO close to Sweden 2814m altitude
[06:17] <navrac2> excellent - now its back on rtty i tlooks like someones receiver has picked it up - hood sign
[06:17] <navrac2> low altitude though - maybe it will rise when the sun comes up
[06:18] <KT5TK> hope so
[06:19] <navrac2> mind you it looks like its coming down quite fast 0.5-1m/s doesnt give it a lot of time
[06:19] <navrac2> wonder what time dawn is over there
[06:21] <navrac2> sunrise was 20 minutes ago
[06:22] <MLow> anyone wanna see the pictures from the now dead camera that made it to about 100ft agl
[06:23] <KT5TK> If it reaches Swedish ground it may rise a bit because its warmer than the sea.

[06:32] <navrac_bed> excellent the sun is bringing it up
[06:32] <natrium42> amazing
[06:33] <KT5TK> The balloon heats over the generally cold environment => very good lift
[06:34] <navrac_bed> its a silver mylar so quite reflective

[06:37] <MLow> this is cool :B
[06:37] <navrac_bed> yep i think so
[06:38] <KT5TK> I'm confident it will, now
[06:38] <navrac_bed> 10 minutes ago i wasnt so sure

[06:46] <navrac_bed> 1.5v
[06:46] <navrac_bed> by trhe looks of it
[06:46] <MLow> whats the battery?
[06:46] <heathkid> mylar balloon + payload? no parashoot? nothing?
[06:47] <radim_OM2AMR> navrac_bed - one or two AAAs?

[06:50] <Upu> need some Swedish HAMs
[06:50] <navrac_bed> 30 mins ago was diving
[06:50] <Upu> that mean its leaking ?
[06:50] <navrac_bed> yep, got any lying around?
[06:50] <heathkid> navrac_bed: yes it was... I very new to this and learning I don't have a clue.
[06:50] <navrac_bed> not necessarily
[06:50] <KT5TK> not leaking. likely condensate
[06:50] <Upu> ok
[06:51] <navrac_bed> agreed
[06:51] <heathkid> it seems so easy... balloon, aprs.... up and track. but no.
[06:51] <MLow> i know this first hand with my crappy tracker

[06:54] <navrac_bed> 60g even
[06:54] <Upu> and probably way longer if the GPS was turned off when it did HS
[06:54] <Upu> not bad for an AA :)
[06:54] <navrac_bed> no impressive
[06:55] <MLow> seems to have turned

[07:13] <number10> I wonder if the spider is still on it
[07:14] <OZ1SKY_Brian> JFS1 thanks
[07:14] <JFS1> Brian - any luck finding Swedish receivers?
[07:14] <OZ1SKY_Brian> number10 maybe :-)

[07:14] <JFS1> Great.

[07:16] <heathkid> Upu: I don't usually in channels I'm not an op
[07:16] <heathkid> but that just pisses me off
[07:16] <heathkid> same with #arduino.... no ops around ever
[07:17] <heathkid> but in ##hamradio I'd expect an op to be there
[07:17] <heathkid> otherwise the channel is useless
[07:18] <heathkid> I do not put up with that in my channels

[08:32] <jcoxon> will have to wait and see
[08:33] <Upu> I sent a few too

[08:35] <jcoxon> hehe
[08:38] <KT5TK> jcoxon: icing or condensate. It was right at the freezing point at that time
[08:38] <jcoxon> interestingly the radio had warmed to 10C
[08:39] <Willdude123> So, how exactly does one go about making an antenna? Does it need to be omnidirectional?
[08:39] <KT5TK> at what time? When the sun came?
[08:40] <KT5TK> Yes, omni. Try a verical wire dipole or an inverted groundplane

[09:33] <RG-lz1dev> jcoxon: what the verdict?
[09:33] <KT5TK> Nope SP9UOB is QRT since 20:00 UTC
[09:33] <jcoxon> RG-lz1dev, it could still be floating but the transmitter was giving up

[10:33] <jcoxon> hmmmm 708m
[10:33] <jcoxon> thats low
[10:33] <fsphil> could be missing a digit
[10:33] <jcoxon> yeah
[10:34] <fsphil> hoping so
[10:34] <JFS1> But it's more than an hour ago if it's right
[10:34] <jcoxon> yeah
[10:34] <MiniMail> hoy much did PICO cost?
[10:34] <jcoxon> hmm difficult
[10:34] <JFS1> Did Brian say where the receiver was?
[10:34] <jcoxon> so lets think this through
[10:35] <jcoxon> i've emailed the guy who got that
[10:35] <jcoxon> if we can get some partials
[10:35] <Willdude123> Is condensation usually an issue with cameras on payloads?
[10:36] <eroomde> not usually
[10:36] <eroomde> but it's best to avoid things that can cause it like little glass windows for the camera to look through forming airtight seals
[10:38] <jcoxon> the position looks about right
[10:40] <Willdude123> So cameras usually have windows to look out of?
[10:41] <eroomde> no
[10:41] <eroomde> because that increases the chances of fogging
[10:42] <sm6u> I'm guessing it would be possible to record RTTY audio on a cellphone or voice memo, then decode it afterwards?

[10:42] <jcoxon> sm6u, certainly would
[10:43] <jcoxon> sm6u, that said that string that was posted suggests it is very low now
[10:43] <jcoxon> 708m
[10:43] <JFS1> Hi SP9UOB - brilliant flight yesterday - any update on what happened to your balloon?
[10:44] <sm6u> jcoxon, hope it's incorrect
[10:44] <jcoxon> sm6u, so do i
[10:44] <jcoxon> fsphil, JFS1 look at the temp - its lower then earlier
[10:44] <jcoxon> which is interesting
[10:45] <jcoxon> so that data suggests: https://maps.google.co.uk/maps?q=58.5788495,+13.754335&hl=en&ll=58.573981,13.754883&spn=6.949728,17.929688&sll=52.8382,-2.327815&sspn=8.047465,17.929688&t=m&z=6
[10:45] <SP9UOB> JFS1: thank You. No news about balloon - batteries died in half of predicted time (frozen?)
[10:46] <JFS1> jcoxon: that's a bit off predicted path - due to being at a lower altitude thus different weather patterns?
[10:46] <jcoxon> yes
[10:46] <Willdude123> Woah, the balloon with the callsign pico went cross country.
[10:47] <fsphil> I'm not sure I trust that temperature or altitude :)

[10:49] <jcoxon> SM0DFP_, ok thanks for listening
[10:49] <jcoxon> SM0DFP_, it might still be a little further west
[10:50] <jcoxon> or on the ground :-(
[10:50] <Upu> did that last string from Brian parse ?
[10:50] <jcoxon> no
[10:50] <JFS1> SP9UOB- Was the early battery death due to high Tx power perhaps?
[10:50] <Upu> ok
[10:50] <jcoxon> 3 digits for the checksum
[10:50] <jcoxon> but worryingly 708m alt
[10:51] <SM0DFP_> Yes I saw the prediction. I am located in the "landing area". Just 50km north of it.
[10:51] <SP9UOB> JFS1: because of low temperature after sunset i think
[10:52] Action: jcoxon hopes that it still floats
[10:52] <jcoxon> it would be amazing

[11:26] <jcoxon> i can always remove it
[11:27] <navrac2> it didnt go high enough to burst or spring a leak

[11:38] <m0psi> ok, jcoxon, will have to chat with you about that/generally, maybe at a launch
[11:39] <DrLuke> just do a normal launch like I'm going to do
[11:39] <m0psi> hoping to go to the launch near newbury, I think m0pou is involved in
[11:40] <m0psi> sure, wasp-1 will be a vanilla launch, but will not be able to do it from the school. I had a look at the aviation chart, and it is a busy airspace. so no point of even asking CAA
[11:40] <DrLuke> lol
[11:41] <eroomde> better
[11:42] <DrLuke> well time to do some work now, later guys
[11:44] <m0psi> that is a cool video drluke, it is nice to see how it is supposed to work
[11:44] <navrac2> if the last station to hear was at vanersborg then it dissapearing does rather coincide with the radio horizon at that height. Do we know what he was listening with?

[12:23] <navrac2> I think so - well done jcoxon
[12:23] <Lunar_Lander__> yeah congratulations! :)
[12:24] <jcoxon> quick measure on google maps gives it 1050km
[12:24] <navrac2> pretty impressive and how many hours?
[12:25] <jcoxon> i work it out as 18hrs
[12:25] <jcoxon> oh wait
[12:25] <jcoxon> launch was at 1430 UTC
[12:25] <navrac2> 21 hours?
[12:26] <jcoxon> and final point was 0923

[12:36] <m0psi> aaah, bless :-)
[12:37] <Randomskk> is it suitably bright
[12:37] <Randomskk> can you melt things?
[12:37] <Randomskk> 8000 lumens is quite a lot of lumens
[12:37] <Upu> its insane
[12:37] <LazyLeopard> ...for spotting payloads hanging from the highest brances in the dark?
[12:37] <navrac2> for night time launches?
[12:37] <Upu> indeed
[12:37] <m0psi> how much does it weigh?
[12:37] <m0psi> payload?
[12:37] <Upu> lol
[12:37] <Upu> alot
[12:38] <Randomskk> oh man
[12:38] <Randomskk> my torch is only 260 lumens
[12:38] <Laurenceb_> hysplit was very accurate
[12:38] <Upu> http://kaidomain.com/product/details.S020277
[12:38] <Randomskk> and that's already really very bright
[12:38] <Randomskk> what the shit
[12:38] <Randomskk> so many lumens :P
[12:38] <Willdude123> Upu, can it burn stuff?
[12:38] <Randomskk> 260 is enough to light up a huge building at night, I dread to think what 8000 does

[13:59] <navrac2> nearest was 100km
[13:59] <SM-ham> Okay, whats the regulations for launching balloons in the UK? Here it is virtually impossible to get a permit

[14:00] <SM-ham> If it was 100km from me I would be in my car now
[14:00] <navrac2> for small balloons (<2m in all directions inc payload) no regs, above 2m then you need to apply for a notam (notice to airmen) which is not normally refused

[14:02] <Randomskk> you need to apply for a permission to launch

[14:24] <mfa298> I think the baloon was a fairly continuous rtty transmission though
[14:24] <DrLuke> blink.c, the most satisfying code ever written
[14:25] <Willdude123> craag: Yep.
[14:25] <mfa298> someone should probably re-write blink.c so that it displays "Hello World!" in morse code.
[14:25] <SM-ham> It might be low on battery and sending burst, quitting, regaining power and transmitting? (dont know, just guessing)
[14:25] <DrLuke> haha
[14:28] <mfa298> SM-ham: although in theory I think the circuit should still have a few hours of life left. I believe a similar circuit had been tested to 27 hours.
[14:29] <mfa298> but it could be possible it's getting low and the uC is getting rebooted. Might be interesting to see if what asdf__ is hearing decoded as the baloon.
[14:30] <SM-ham> The temperature is quite low in Sweden, the battery life could be affected
[14:32] <Lunar_Lander__> SM-ham, hello
[14:33] <Lunar_Lander__> why is it a problem to get a NOTAM in Sweden?
[14:33] <mfa298> whilst it was running i think the reported temperature was at 10C but it's possible it's dropped since.
[14:36] <SM-ham> I think we have strongly regulated airspace here, that's why
[14:36] <SM-ham> I got 0c here, grounlevlel
[14:38] <SM-ham> Lunar_lander I think there has been som small party-balloon launches without permission, but for bigger balloons it seems hard to get a permit
[14:41] <Lunar_Lander__> ah
[14:43] <SM-ham> And the ham-balloon to be launched is quite a big project with multiple live videofeeds downlinked to a 3m parabola
[14:44] <SM-ham> Both Radar and Lidar tracking from ground and a GPS watchdog that cuts the payload if the ballon drifts into regulated airspace

[19:07] <Lunar_Lander__> cool
[19:07] <Lunar_Lander__> I correctly identified a callsign
[19:07] <Lunar_Lander__> :)
[19:07] <sa6bss> listening on 434.301 but cant hear anything
[19:08] <Lunar_Lander__> ah the balloon has probably landed somewhere
[19:08] <Lunar_Lander__> it dropped all the time when it was last heard
[19:09] <costyn> evening all
[19:09] <costyn> I see I missed an interesting weekend. Unfortunately had lots of other (boring) stuff to do
[19:10] <Lunar_Lander__> oh
[19:10] <sa6bss> ok, its been raining all day so it probaably got heavy
[19:10] <Lunar_Lander__> yea
[19:11] <jcoxon> sa6bss, oh that is interesting to know
[19:11] <DrLuke> this buzzer has the most annoying sound ever: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qhde6ZlcGcw
[19:11] <jcoxon> perhaps it went low got wet and descended further

[19:14] <jcoxon> ^ph, those records are really good
[19:14] <SpeedEvil> DrLuke: I have a _much_ more annoying clock radio
[19:14] <jcoxon> nice and clear signal
[19:14] <DrLuke> SpeedEvil: ouch
[19:14] <Lunar_Lander__> DrLuke, is that your buzzer?
[19:14] <DrLuke> yes
[19:14] <SpeedEvil> same frequencies as a crying baby
[19:14] <DrLuke> it's the low battery warning
[19:15] <Lunar_Lander__> ah
[19:15] <DrLuke> (this by the way isn't a balloon payload)
[19:15] <eroomde> what is it?
[19:17] <SpeedEvil> robot hoover?
[19:18] <DrLuke> A custom adotion of Flarm: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FLARM
[19:18] <DrLuke> adoption*
[19:18] <DrLuke> it's intended for hang gliders, as there aren't any satisfying solutions for them
[19:20] <SpeedEvil> interesting
[19:21] G7PMO_Kev (~kevin@oracle.unseen.org) joined #highaltitude.
[19:21] <costyn> DrLuke: that is an awful sound
[19:21] <DrLuke> imagine you're flying
[19:21] <DrLuke> and your batteries get low
[19:21] <DrLuke> :))))
[19:21] <costyn> DrLuke: yes, you'd want to know
[19:22] <DrLuke> yeah
[19:22] <costyn> DrLuke: I've done some hang gliding, looks interesting
[19:22] <DrLuke> what I meant it, constant annoying sound
[19:22] <DrLuke> we once had a glider with a malfunctioning weight-warning
[19:22] <DrLuke> or was it landing gear warning... I can't remember
[19:22] <DrLuke> but just imagine flying with a constant annoying beeping for 8 hours
[19:22] <costyn> urrghh
[19:23] <DrLuke> aahhh... fun times
[19:23] <DrLuke> I remember flying that one time where the elevator wasn't secured and could've come loose any time
[19:23] <DrLuke> I was flying for 5 hours in rough thermals
[19:24] <DrLuke> loose = fall off
[19:24] <costyn> oops
[19:24] <costyn> DrLuke: but this is for gliders or hang gliders or both?
[19:24] <DrLuke> this is just intended for hang gliders
[19:24] <costyn> or do you only need the alarm for hang gliders because you don't have onboard battery
[19:25] <DrLuke> but it's compatible with the system gliders use
[19:25] <costyn> ah ok
[19:25] <DrLuke> so glider pilots will see the hang gliders
[19:25] <DrLuke> hang gliders don't get any warning, they just broadcast
[19:25] <costyn> hehe ok, don't remember the right of way rules for different types of gliders
[19:25] <DrLuke> hang gliders have the right of way
[19:25] RG-lz1dev (~zo@ left irc: Ping timeout: 264 seconds
[19:26] <DrLuke> simply because they can't get out of the way as easily
[19:26] <costyn> ok
[19:26] <costyn> yea
[19:26] <DrLuke> but it's always so nice, they're the only people who wave :)
[19:26] <costyn> hehe
[19:27] <costyn> I liked doing it, but OMG the hassle of carrying around the glider on top of the car and then having to travel hundreds of KM to get to a mountainous spot, just too much
[19:28] <costyn> DrLuke: going to sell my gear next year I think. May try a paragliding course
[19:28] <griffonbot> Received email: James Coxon "[UKHAS] Pico Launch 20/10/12"
[19:28] <DrLuke> costyn: oh, I actually meant paragliders
[19:28] <DrLuke> not hang gliders, sorry for the confusion :P
[19:28] <DrLuke> but hang gliders certainly can use this, too
[19:29] <costyn> well.. now I'm offended
[19:29] <costyn> :P
[19:29] <DrLuke> :P
[19:29] <DrLuke> well it's because in germany paragliders are called "hängeschirmflieger", which literally translates to hanging chute flyers
[19:29] <costyn> ah
[19:30] <costyn> dragonflyer is what hang glidrs are isn't it? drachenfliger?
[19:30] <costyn> flieger*?
[19:30] <costyn> or am I translating it too literally now
[19:30] <DrLuke> yep
[19:30] <DrLuke> too literally :)
[19:30] <costyn> hehe
[19:30] mclane (~mclane@p4FCF4B7A.dip.t-dialin.net) left irc: Quit: Verlassend
[19:31] <costyn> but but... drachen is dragon in German, so says Google translate
[19:31] <DrLuke> it is
[19:31] <DrLuke> but it also is a kite
[19:31] <costyn> I see
[19:31] <DrLuke> it's the same word for two things
[19:31] <DrLuke> what was the term for that again...
[19:32] <costyn> dunno
[19:32] <OH6EH> It would be fun to chase a balloon with a paraglider :-)
[19:32] <fsphil> "We're being attacked by the fire-breathing kite" doesn't sound as bad
[19:32] <DrLuke> OH6EH been there, done that :P
[19:32] <DrLuke> sometimes a lone party balloon comes flying up
[19:33] <DrLuke> I stopped flying into them when one clogged up the inlet for measuring airspeed
[19:33] <costyn> haha
[19:33] <OH6EH> In fact when I saw the news about this balloon, I damned the weather.
[19:33] <OH6EH> Paramotor?
[19:33] <DrLuke> no, this: http://www.dg-flugzeugbau.de/Data/dg1000-7.jpg

[19:57] <Chris___> Hi all, found this group through the main webpage. I am a teacher of Geography in Stoke on Trent. One of my year 8 classes has shown real interest in weather, in particular changes of temperature at altitude. As a reward for their hard work this half term I have agreed to look into the possibility of launching a weather balloon from school. Having done some background reading this seems possible, a lot of good FAQ's out there
[19:58] <Chris___> would be prepared to act as a point of contact to bounce some questions off as and when I get them?
[19:58] <Chris___> All help appreciated!
[19:58] <daveake> Here's the best place to ask, assuming the wiki doesn't cover it :)
[19:59] <daveake> ot - pic from the last day of my hols - https://sphotos-b.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash3/579157_10151107671842654_1458375558_n.jpg
[19:59] <DrLuke> Chris___: Read the wiki, if anything is unclear after that, ask here
[20:00] <DrLuke> we're glad to help
[20:00] <DrLuke> Just a quick question to you: Do you know any electronics?
[20:00] <Chris___> Yeah I'm pretty good with electronics
[20:00] <DrLuke> And twhere is Stoke in Trent
[20:00] <DrLuke> UK?
[20:00] <Chris___> West Midlands between Birmingham and Manchester, yes UK
[20:01] <DrLuke> ah
[20:01] <daveake> Top Tip - Get yourself invited to a launch to see how it works :)
[20:01] <DrLuke> ^
[20:01] <Lunar_Lander> :)
[20:02] <daveake> If you fancy a trip to Germany I'm sure Lunar will be launching RSN
[20:02] <DrLuke> maybe you don't even have to entirely launch your own ballon but can piggy back your payload onto another balloon
[20:02] <daveake> Failing that, there are lots of launches from near Cambridge
[20:02] <daveake> and I do quite a lot from Berks
[20:02] <daveake> DrLuke's suggestion is a very good one
[20:03] <DrLuke> a temperature sensor, a micro and an sd card would weight next to nothing
[20:03] <daveake> There have been a fair few launches with 2 or 3 payloads under the same balloon
[20:03] <fsphil> piggybacking is great, takes a lot of the pressure off
[20:03] <Chris___> It would ideal, however this is a project for the kids, and I'm not sure of the logistics of getting 30 kids down to Cambridge to see the launch!
[20:04] <DrLuke> maybe you can persuade someone to launch at your school :)
[20:04] <Lunar_Lander> DrLuke, it's Stoke-on-Trent
[20:04] <DrLuke> so?
[20:04] <Lunar_Lander> xD
[20:04] <Lunar_Lander> just so
[20:05] <daveake> I'm not necessarily :-) offering, but in the past I've done the piggybacking thing at someone else's site. e.g. you get the permission sorted for somewhere convenient, then someone else comes along with their tracker etc
[20:05] <Chris___> Fair enough, a case of finding the right chap and sorting out petrol money etc?
[20:05] <DrLuke> and cookies
[20:05] <DrLuke> everybody likes cookies :)
[20:05] <daveake> Bacon Butties
[20:06] <Chris___> As for the payload, we'd be looking to stick a camera onboard too, so not all that light
[20:06] <daveake> Butties are the official HAB currency
[20:06] <fsphil> bacon > cookies
[20:06] <DrLuke> you can strip cameras from all the unecessary plastic casing
[20:06] <daveake> I've done a camera payload in 185g, so they can be pretty light
[20:06] <Chris___> Sensor wise, I've used Valsala Raidiosonde's before...
[20:07] <daveake> That was without removing the plastic, flash etc
[20:08] <DrLuke> chris___: Well, maybe you want to join the ukhas mailing list
[20:08] <DrLuke> and write a mail
[20:08] <DrLuke> maybe somebody will be happy to help you
[20:08] <DrLuke> (I would if I weren't in germany :)
[20:08] <Chris___> Sounds good....how does one go about doing this?

[20:12] <Chris___> brill thanx
[20:13] <DrLuke> You're welcome
[20:13] <DrLuke> I really admire your effort
[20:14] <Chris___> What better way to stimulate learning than do kooky projects the kids love? Especially after the Baumgartner jump
[20:14] <DrLuke> haha indeed
[20:15] <DrLuke> once I launch my first balloon, I will offer my services to my old school
[20:16] <DrLuke> An old teacher of mine will probably pee himself about it :P
[20:16] <Chris___> Where abouts in Germany are you?
[20:16] <DrLuke> In the soutwest, in Baden-Baden

[22:08] <m0psi> jcoxon, do you send out qsl cards for the people who received your balloon data and uploaded it? or is that for you regular HAM work?
[22:09] <jonsowman> he's gone
[22:09] <m0psi> so he has
[22:09] <jonsowman> usually they're sent to people who received telemetry
[22:09] <m0psi> nice idea
[22:09] <jonsowman> i don't know the exact details of what James is doing with this one though
[22:09] <m0psi> quite a romantic one, i think
[22:09] <jonsowman> could be the top 20, perhaps
[22:10] <m0psi> sure, but just the thought of it is quite nice
[22:10] <fsphil> I've got one card so far, it's quite neat
[22:10] <m0psi> oh, makes me wanna get one!
[22:10] <jonsowman> I got one from Upu a while ago thanks to some very fortunate geography
[22:10] <fsphil> I must do some card for my next flight
[22:10] <m0psi> hmmm, seems like WASP gang need to make one up too
[22:10] <m0psi> neat idea

[22:12] <m0psi> i've secured a school trip for the wasp teams to go to SSTL
[22:12] <m0psi> surrey satellite tech company
[22:12] <m0psi> just down the road from us.
[22:13] <m0psi> should be quite exciting
[22:13] <griffonbot> Received email: "Re: [UKHAS] Re: Bit of help needed"
[22:13] <fsphil> I'd love to have done that at school!
[22:13] <m0psi> too right
[22:13] <jonsowman> we (CUSF) are a bit involved with SSTL at the mo
[22:13] <jonsowman> http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-surrey-15476754
[22:13] <m0psi> oh
[22:14] <fsphil> we got to a local planetarium which was neat. that trip got me interested in radio :)
[22:14] <m0psi> this is sooo cool
[22:15] <m0psi> one of the kids at wasp said "oh we could play some disco music up there!"
[22:15] <m0psi> i said, funny you say that, i was thinking of having a microphone to measure/record the balloon popping
[22:16] <m0psi> but have a calibration sound, being played at different altitudes
[22:16] <m0psi> not quite the 'Alien' tag line, but kind of close :-)

[22:17] <fsphil> in space, no-one can hear you scream ..... about the horrible plot in Prometheus
[22:17] <m0psi> saw that movie recently
[22:17] <m0psi> pretty good, i have to say
[22:18] <m0psi> not much gets close to alien, but that one did
[22:18] <fsphil> I had many issues with it
[22:18] <m0psi> my biggest issue was the too many 'copies' from the original
[22:18] <m0psi> they could have had a bit better creativity
[22:19] <fsphil> alien and aliens where my fav
[22:19] <fsphil> the other two, not so hot
[22:20] <m0psi> re: app to measure magnetic field. Hmmmm, I would have thought the electric currents in the gadgets would upset the measurement, even when calibrated (difficult to say the least)
[22:20] <m0psi> fsphil, agreed
