[15:56] <gonzo_> you'd be better mounting the beam horisontal, then run the coax along the boom and down the mast
[15:56] <gonzo_> that would avoid having it running in the plane of the antenna
[15:57] <gonzo_> having it in the plane will affect the tuning andcause a squint in the pattern

[16:24] <NavracWork> well it will change the tuning - it is always difficult with vertical beams as the feed invariably pulls the tuning a bit - the only option is to stick a rod out at rt angles and run the cable down that. Without an antenna analyser its always hard to tell whats out just using swr.
[16:24] <NavracWork> but 1.22 to 1.3 is really not a lot of difference
[16:25] <NavracWork> it probably only 0.6%
[16:26] <NavracWork> anyway try a zl special - the swr changes when something comes within 6 feet of it

[21:00] <Upu> ping navrac 95mA is what the 1.8V pulls from the battery on average
[21:07] bbjunkie (~bbjunkie@95.151.7.55) joined #highaltitude.
[21:15] <navrac> hi upu
[21:15] <navrac> that seems a lot
[21:15] <navrac> i suppose the rfm is 25mA
[21:15] <Upu> well thats probably the inefficiency in the boost regulator
[21:16] <navrac> yep probsably only 60-70%
[21:16] <Upu> was at 2v input
[21:16] <navrac> i guess the gps is the biggie
[21:17] <navrac> ah linear reg?
[21:17] <Upu> boost
[21:17] <Upu> it drops 20mA when it got satellites
[21:17] <navrac> hmm doesnt the boost just act as a straight path through the flyback diode?
[21:18] <navrac> when vin>vout
[21:18] <Upu> not sure
[21:18] <navrac> that was the issue with the nco14xx ones
[21:18] <navrac> ncp even
[21:19] <navrac> but with the amount of solar you have i dont think its going to be an issue
[21:19] <Upu> nah
[21:19] <navrac> whats the reg?
[21:19] <Upu> 4 is right tbh
[21:19] <Upu> TPS61201DRC
[21:19] <Upu> well TPS61200DRC
[21:19] <navrac> 3x22mA did mine but i was on low power on the gps and intermittant tx
[21:20] <Upu> that would be pushing it
[21:21] <navrac> oh that reg will be fine - it puts the output via a gate so it shouldnt go above 1.8V
[21:21] <Upu> if we fly it
[21:22] <Upu> have an issue that it only falls at 1m/s with no parachute
[21:22] <navrac> one of the issues with the ncp was that when the solarsgot full sone it was putting nearly 4v on the cct
[21:22] <navrac> the other stuff will pull it down - you've got to fly it
[21:22] <Upu> haha
[21:22] <Upu> well
[21:23] <daveake> that's the plan
[21:23] G8KNN_LT (~Jon@cpc1-cmbg10-0-0-cust144.5-4.cable.virginmedia.com) left irc: Ping timeout: 246 seconds
[21:23] <Upu> running some channels through the ball and going to put some proper cord through it and will mount at the top
[21:23] <navrac> or do it on a hook mechanism and a small pico - so when the other balloon pops it floats off...
[21:23] <Upu> should be fine just need to finish it tomorrow
[21:23] <navrac> (please ignore the obvious flaws in that suggestion)
[21:24] <Upu> many flaws :)
[21:24] <daveake> :)
[21:24] <daveake> I was about to ...
[21:24] <daveake> Upu Plenty of time then :)
[21:24] <Upu> it won't be painted pink
[21:24] <Upu> which is a shame
[21:24] <daveake> aww
[21:24] <Upu> but I'm claiming I left it white to reflect the sun
[21:24] <navrac> stripey would be nice
[21:24] <Upu> nothing to do with the lack of time
[21:24] <daveake> :)
[21:24] <daveake> I have paint
[21:25] <navrac> 1) unwrap balloon
[21:25] <navrac> 2) paint payload
[21:25] <navrac> 3) inflate balloon
[21:25] <daveake> 2 <-> 3
[21:25] <navrac> plenty of time to dry
[21:25] <daveake> dry on the way up :)
[21:25] <Upu> well we'll see
[21:26] <Upu> I need to read this
[21:27] <Upu> bedtime reading tomorrow
[21:27] <m0psi> hey upu, if the blades are flexible
[21:27] <navrac> ah yes i read that
[21:27] <m0psi> then how about putting some string to pull them up
[21:28] <m0psi> when the thing is flying down
[21:28] <Upu> well
[21:28] <Upu> not sure it would work
[21:28] <m0psi> may be a streamer
[21:28] <Upu> you'll see on Friday
[21:28] <navrac> still think the gyrocopter approacjh is good - could act as a parachute for the rest of the payload
[21:28] <m0psi> ok
[21:28] <m0psi> i love problems like that
[21:28] <Upu> defintely need a spinner above and below it
[21:29] <daveake> I was about to say that :
[21:29] <daveake> )
[21:29] <m0psi> y, i like the autorotate idea too :-)
[21:29] <daveake> I have plenty
[21:30] <m0psi> has a radar (sonic or otherwise) been used on a hab?
[21:30] <m0psi> to detect height above ground
[21:30] <navrac> too much power required to get an echo
[21:31] <m0psi> light is ok
[21:31] <m0psi> get that from your local ironmongers
[21:31] <m0psi> estate agent measuring tool
[21:31] <daveake> I've never measured an estate agent
[21:32] <m0psi> i wouldnt even try!
[21:32] <navrac> i think the lasers they use dobout at about 50m
[21:32] <m0psi> hmm
[21:32] <m0psi> well, the lidar principle still applies
[21:32] <navrac> or a 2gram gps
[21:32] <m0psi> and the range can be millions of miles,
[21:33] <m0psi> yes, i take your point
[21:33] <m0psi> gps, cheaper
[21:33] <navrac> or a long bit of string
[21:33] <m0psi> you'll need a ref map, to know where the ground is to be expected for that location
[21:33] <m0psi> hey, a plumb line!
[21:33] <m0psi> yes, like the old ships
[21:34] <navrac> recovery is easy - just pull the string
[21:34] <daveake> hmmm
[21:34] <daveake> Upu and I fought a parachute at the top of a tree
[21:34] <daveake> It won
[21:34] <Upu> yeah
[21:35] <Upu> so much for the advertised breaking
[21:35] <navrac> I have a chainsaw
[21:35] <Upu> I nrealy tore my finger off
[21:35] <m0psi> you've heard the adage ? "never fight a parachute"
[21:35] <daveake> Well, a thinner line from parachute to the top payload would have helped
[21:35] <Upu> small details
[21:36] <navrac> I did a machine for bp years agoto make monofilament - it would chop thru the tree
[21:36] <Upu> it was quite far up
[21:36] <Upu> https://picasaweb.google.com/118244444241111963790/201203AvaLaunch2SummaryPics#5732081097448917874

[21:36] <navrac> aka a long stick?
[21:36] <Upu> yes improvised cut down
[21:36] <Upu> note tool in left of that pic
[21:37] <daveake> #36 is great
[21:37] <navrac> good tool
[21:37] <Upu> you can see the force it was under with the dents in the side of the payload
[21:38] <Upu> https://picasaweb.google.com/118244444241111963790/201203AvaLaunch2SummaryPics#5732081298772698690
[21:38] <Upu> still love that pic
[21:38] <daveake> Falling with style
[21:39] <m0psi> http://www.mysmartbuy.com/p-280-Eckman-8ft-10in-Electric-Telescopic-Branch-Lopper-Chainsaw.html
[21:40] <m0psi> i have something like this, and not this expensive version
[21:40] <m0psi> just a mechanical lopping thing
[21:40] <m0psi> could be a useful addition to a chase car tool box
[21:41] <fsphil> I was very tempted to cut the tree down that had hadie3
[21:41] <daveake> bring it :D
[21:41] <m0psi> upu, i'm trying to figure out how buzz got into that position
[21:41] <m0psi> ok. i'll stick it in the car
[21:41] <daveake> The support line snagged around the tube holding Buzz
[21:42] <daveake> m0psi I may not be back before you leave though!
[21:42] <m0psi> well, i am still keen to help with the chase
[21:43] <m0psi> if take off is on time, ish
[21:43] <daveake> haha
[21:43] <m0psi> i know
[21:43] <daveake> Friday
[21:43] <daveake> M25
[21:43] <m0psi> one can hope
[21:43] <m0psi> at least that is what Obama said
[21:44] <navrac> ninja throwing stars. That could be good for cutting lines
[21:44] <m0psi> i thought about that too. If i follow you, and then leave my can off the m4/m3, then i don't have to go all the way back to your place
[21:45] <daveake> ok, well whatever works for you
[21:45] <m0psi> so, a hab course; electronics, weather, computing, ninja
[21:45] <m0psi> and gardening
[21:45] <navrac> and sailing
[21:45] <daveake> Set up a chase car program so you appear on the map
[21:45] <daveake> tree felling
[21:45] <daveake> swimming
[21:46] <daveake> Tour of fish & chip shops
[21:46] <m0psi> oh, is that a tradition now?!
[21:46] <number10> no fish and chip shops here
[21:46] <navrac> and bacon butties
[21:46] <m0psi> fish and chips, to warm up after the swim
[21:46] <number10> there is a rubbish one in clare

[21:52] <Upu> ...
[21:52] <Upu> £5 each
[21:52] <navrac> out of stock - you got thr last ones
[21:52] <Upu> steal it but don't every go out in the sunshine with it or I'll know where you are :)
[21:53] <navrac> dont worry - i'll stick the powersavingcode on the gps - you'll only know within a mile :-)
[21:53] <m0psi> just stay in england, upu wont ever know :-)
[21:53] <fsphil> that'll be a new kind of chase
[21:53] <m0psi> or even go to manchester
