[03:57] <arko> my Byonics microtrak RTG-FA just arrived :)
[03:57] <arko> this will be the primary radio for HABEX2

[03:58] <arko> woo
[03:58] <Darkside> bah
[03:58] <Darkside> "micro" trak
[03:58] <Darkside> that'snot micro!
[03:58] <arko> not veryy micro
[03:58] <arko> i know
[03:59] <Darkside> we did micro aprs firs t:P
[03:59] <arko> oh?
[03:59] <Darkside> with the MicroNut
[03:59] <Darkside> well, maybe not first
[03:59] <Darkside> but our APRS tracker is tiny

[03:59] <arko> woah!
[03:59] <arko> thats aprs?

[04:00] <Darkside> nope
[04:00] <arko> i can mill and through hole plate
[04:00] <arko> damn it
[04:00] <Darkside> makes it a bit too easy
[04:01] <arko> i was thinking of designing my own
[04:01] <arko> just for lulz
[04:01] <arko> selling is too much work
[04:01] <Darkside> go for it :-)
[04:01] <Darkside> it's not that hard
[04:01] <arko> :D
[04:01] <Darkside> reasons why we don't sell #1
[04:01] <Darkside> too hard
[04:01] <Darkside> and B) support
[04:01] <arko> i would have publicized the shit out of that
[04:01] <arko> or as much as i could
[04:01] <Darkside> heh

[04:02] <arko> nice
[04:02] <arko> clean design
[04:02] <Darkside> the design is actually a bit outdated
[04:02] <Darkside> http://rfhead.net/?p=470
[04:02] <Darkside> thats the new version of the micronut
[04:03] <arko> ohhH!
[04:03] <arko> on the back!
[04:03] <arko> i was wondering where that way
[04:03] <Darkside> the micronut is meant to be a RTTY payload, but with the right module and power supply, it can do APRS
[04:03] <arko> was*
[04:03] <arko> nice
[04:03] <arko> i like this
[04:03] <Darkside> the trick with the HX1 modules is they require regulate 5V, which is why there was that second PCB with on the APRS transmitters
[04:03] <Darkside> the second PCB being a 5V boost converter
[04:03] <arko> noticed that
[04:04] <Darkside> these boards all have LDOs, to drop down to 5V
[04:04] <Darkside> again, an obsolete design
[04:04] <arko> whats taken over?
[04:04] <Darkside> i've moved on to using boost converters on my newer payloads
[04:04] <arko> cool

[10:59] <NavracWork> vortex2 and helios are very evenly matched signal wise for me
[10:59] <gonzo_> no reason not to set the RX to 1 stop bit though. If the TX is 2 stops, it makes resync a bit more reliable

[11:54] <daveake> How many HAB points was it for landing at Steve's site? :)
[11:54] <M0JCU> Generally, if you have line of sight, 300 works
[11:54] <LazyL_M0LEP> Mostly subjectively. ;)
[11:54] <M0JCU> if you don't 50 doesn't work
[11:54] <G7PMO_Kev> :)
[11:54] <G7PMO_Kev> I guess it is the edge conditions that matter...
[11:54] <G7PMO_Kev> when it is lieing in a field
[11:55] <LazyL_M0LEP> 300 is more sensitive to poor signal strength, and slow computers.
[11:55] <G7PMO_Kev> and you can only get a weak signal
[11:55] <LazyL_M0LEP> Vortex is demonstratinng weak signals atpresent.
[11:55] <NavracWork> yep - once its los I prefer 300 for local qrm, but when its landing/going up 50 wins quite easily for me

[12:27] <birdstrike> or does the predictor work it out automatically?
[12:27] <birdstrike> sorry for the 20 questions, this is all very interesting

[12:30] <costyn> they do,but that's not what was in the email... ?
[12:31] <LazyL_M0LEP> Cut-down didn't happen.
[12:31] <M0JCU> Predicted landing is near Balsham @ 13:04
[12:31] <costyn> LazyL_M0LEP: seems so
[12:31] <Upu_M0UPU> well that wasn't a bad guess at the burst was it
[12:31] <NavracWork> hasnt happened on the way down either...

[12:32] <daveake> wossup?
[12:32] <Upu_M0UPU> probably
[12:32] <birdstrike> ah, so balsham implies that your predictor is taking account of the higher landing velocity
[12:32] <birdstrike> whereas the one on the tracking webpage isn't
[12:32] <Upu_M0UPU> no matter what I play with in the filters etc its just a messy siganl
[12:33] <daveake> Upload a screenshot
[12:33] <Luca___> kelly: I am aftraid but from the rate of descent it looks like there is no parachute..
[12:33] <birdstrike> what is the landing velocity in this configuration, out of interest?
[12:33] <M0JCU> My predictor has several alternative descent rates. One of them was "Balloon bursts with both attached"
[12:33] <M0JCU> 6 m/s in this configuration
[12:33] <daveake> 6m/s at a s guess
[12:33] <M0JCU> :)
[12:33] <daveake> :)
[12:33] <costyn> Luca___: they always go really fast when they're that high

[12:41] <birdstrike> you could presumably have them say 500kHz apart and still be within the ofcom exemption?
[12:41] <daveake> Strange - loads here inc 425MHz
[12:41] <daveake> 100k apart is plenty birdstrike
[12:42] <birdstrike> ok fine
[12:42] <daveake> Vortex drifting like buggery
[12:42] <birdstrike> but that still only reinforces the question?
[12:42] <daveake> Just had to widen the filter
[12:42] <M0JCU> Helioss_chase, update. 0.5 km out of West Wratting on the Six Mile Bottom road
[12:42] <daveake> Well yes thoe 2 you mention were very close together. I don't know why
[12:42] <M0JCU> Only had NTX2s - only 2 frequencies available
[12:43] <gb73d> the doppler shift is so fast the afc cant keep up!
[12:43] <daveake> gb73d Widen the filter
[12:43] <GMT> glad to see/hear that I'm not the only one with that prob!
[12:43] <LazyL_M0LEP> Vortex has its fading moments too....
[12:43] <birdstrike> M0JCU: but those frequencies, if i have read correctly, are 434.075 and 434.650. Surely they could not collide? that's a lot of separation
[12:44] <mattbrejza> ha
[12:44] <daveake> They have *3* payloads and *2* frequencies
[12:44] <mattbrejza> different levels of insulation
[12:44] <birdstrike> assuming they are crystal driven
[12:44] <birdstrike> ah I see
[12:44] <birdstrike> apollogies
[12:44] <daveake> So 2 of them are using the same type of NTX2
[12:44] <birdstrike> yes i see
[12:44] <daveake> There is an adjustment in the NTX2
[12:44] <gb73d> ty Dave i see
[12:44] <birdstrike> so they are bothin within the (20kHz?) and pass of an ntx2 on a certain frequency
[12:45] <birdstrike> sorry i should have read the email more closely
[12:45] <birdstrike> band pass*
[12:45] <daveake> Some people use other transmitters like the rfm22b where you can set the freq in s/w
[12:46] <Upu_M0UPU> I can make custom frequency NTX2's btw
[12:46] <Upu_M0UPU> but they aren't cheap
[12:47] <daveake> You may get an order for 20 next summer :D
[12:47] <Upu_M0UPU> yeah well my name isn't going near that
[12:47] <daveake> lol
[12:48] <costyn> whats the latest news on mitigating the drift on the rfm's?
[12:48] <costyn> (apart from adding lots of insulation)
[12:49] <mattbrejza> replace the crystal with one with less drift (or is part the issue the heating of the internal caps?)
[12:49] BoggleMob (~androirc@ left irc: Ping timeout: 245 seconds
[12:50] <NavracWork> use an external tcxo - changing the crystal doesnt help

[12:50] <mattbrejza> ok
[12:50] <costyn> NavracWork: so that did the trick?
[12:50] <NavracWork> or just an external crystal with its own driver
[12:50] <NavracWork> yep
[12:50] <costyn> does the rfm have a txco pin?
[12:50] <mattbrejza> so it is the internal caps issue>
[12:51] <GMT> VORTEX now back on freq, but drifting wildly upwards!
[12:51] <Upu_M0UPU> I've never noticed an issue with drift as long as its insulated
[12:51] <NavracWork> https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Y1aenYiKOqeTF7ShiB3ZuWWs0pPSTlTQGekO4xaaXu8/edit
[12:52] <NavracWork> its mainly drift on powering up the tx - if its well insulated it doesnt drift
[12:52] <NavracWork> daveakes hardly drift at all - havent needed to retune on any of his recent flights
[12:53] Action: daveake has smug face
[12:53] <costyn> NavracWork: thanks. unfortunately this goes somewhat above my knowledge level at the moment :) I guess i'll stick to good insulation
[12:54] <Upu_M0UPU> Car is right under them
[12:54] <M0JCU> bad place to be :)
[12:55] <LazyL_M0LEP> Not the fastest drifting payload I've seen, but definitely up there in the race...

[12:55] <daveake> hah
[12:55] <Upu_M0UPU> bonus points for catching it
[12:55] <GMT> if they had a very long stick they could open the sunroof and pull it in!
[12:56] <mattbrejza> NavracWork: its easy enough to do that without an opamp

[12:57] <mattbrejza> lol probably should have read the whole thing?

[12:58] <costyn> heh... gonna land near "Horny Bush Wood"... that's beyond inuendo
[12:58] <NavracWork> the op amp was there so i could quickly adjust things to find the most linear part of the varicaps ramp
[12:59] <mattbrejza> i just drive the entire range from the pwm

[21:16] <Dan-K2VOL> haha
[21:16] <Randomskk> anyway yea danielsaul has the link
[21:16] <number10> i will check Randomskk
[21:16] <number10> I would like to see raw telemetry by tracker
[21:16] <SpeedEvil> http://physics.princeton.edu/romalis/magnetometer/

[21:16] <danielsaul> Randomskk: Under DL Client, there is "Raw Data" - should probably remove that :P
[21:17] <SpeedEvil> I even sorta understand how it works.
[21:17] <Randomskk> ew, yes, indeed
[21:18] <number10> danielsaul: the /ept shows the raw logs but I was interested in the strings sent by trackers, as today I was tracking and hardly any strings were shown on spacenear
[21:19] <Randomskk> you can check two things I guess
[21:19] <Randomskk> logtail shows all new uploads
[21:19] <Randomskk> but you can also just use the raw data export to see who received each sentence
[21:19] <Randomskk> depends if you want to see all uploaded strings, or see all the people who uploadeda good string
[21:19] <Randomskk> the former is a bit trickier to do post-hoc really

[21:30] <number10> Randomskk: I dont think http://habitat.habhub.org/logtail/ seems to show what I am looking for - I was expecting to see strings for vortex and helioss on todays launch but... http://i.imgur.com/nMDqf.jpg
[21:31] <Randomskk> that's what I mean by "harder to do post-hoc"
[21:31] <Randomskk> logtail is for current data really
[21:31] <Randomskk> it does show uploaded sterings but you're "too late" to see vortex etc ones
[21:31] <Randomskk> but uhm
[21:31] <Randomskk> the data is still there - just those strings are essentially floating in the db as they were presumably not parsed
[21:31] <Randomskk> you can readily view all the parsed strings and see who uploaded each
[21:31] <Randomskk> but seeing what other strings were uploaded is a little trickier
[21:31] <Randomskk> uhm

[22:29] <Laurenceb_> for shift control?
[22:30] <Dan-K2VOL> yeah
[22:30] <mattbrejza> that size also would not have helped
[22:30] <Laurenceb_> with pll you dont need to worry about that
[22:30] <mattbrejza> it compensated shift and overall drift
[22:30] <mattbrejza> it was a crystal pulled thing
[22:30] <Laurenceb_> - shift is consistent
[22:30] <Laurenceb_> yeah
[22:30] <Dan-K2VOL> with pll you don't need to worry about what?
[22:30] <Laurenceb_> drifting shift
[22:30] <mattbrejza> that was a nice easy radio, but too cheap and cheerful to use next to a gps (max7057)
[22:31] <Laurenceb_> optical downlink is horribly impractical
[22:31] <Laurenceb_> but we could set the optical link record

[22:32] <mattbrejza> how about trying to hit the mirror on the moon? :P

[22:33] <Dan-K2VOL> they have nothing else to reference

[22:47] <DrLuke> is there some way to have itoa output capitalized characters for hexadecimal stuff?
[22:49] <mattbrejza> most people use snprintf to generate the transmission string if thats what youre doing?
[22:49] <mattbrejza> no idea with itoa
[22:50] <DrLuke> eh
[22:50] <DrLuke> I used all string.h to do it so far :P
[22:51] <mattbrejza> snprintf/sprintf can do it all in one line
[22:53] <DrLuke> that might be so

[23:06] <eroomde> not the worlds greatest rocket scientist
[23:07] <eroomde> the precooler a bit lost on him
[23:07] <eroomde> which is good for us as it means he wont start pushing it for himself
[23:07] <Dan-K2VOL> eh?
[23:07] <DrLuke> haha
[23:07] <eroomde> and more importantly i had a drink with talulah riley
[23:07] <SpeedEvil> eroomde: :-)

[23:07] <DrLuke> hot
[23:07] <eroomde> and told richard dawkins that i thought his stuff was a bit heavy handed
[23:07] <Randomskk> haha
[23:07] <Dan-K2VOL> is she on the naked scientists?
[23:07] <eroomde> so, a good evening all in all
[23:07] <Randomskk> all in an evening's work huh
[23:07] <Dan-K2VOL> lol
[23:08] <SpeedEvil> is that the hot engineering spacex lady?
[23:08] <Dan-K2VOL> which rocket man did you meet?
[23:08] <eroomde> no, that's musk's ex wie
[23:08] <eroomde> who was there too
[23:08] <eroomde> wife*
[23:08] <SpeedEvil> ah
[23:08] <eroomde> and my age
[23:08] <eroomde> and quite hot
[23:09] <eroomde> http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2012/08/22/article-2191824-14A4E331000005DC-374_306x423.jpg
[23:09] <SpeedEvil> indeed.
[23:09] <eroomde> Dan-K2VOL: elon
[23:10] <Dan-K2VOL> well howdy
[23:11] <Dan-K2VOL> haha wait, his crazy money-grubbing, space-future-threatening ex wife?
[23:12] <eroomde> no idea
[23:12] <eroomde> she was just quite flirty and quite pretty
[23:12] <Lunar_Lander> eroomde, you really met Dawkins?
[23:12] <eroomde> and she's been in a couple of films that are the sort of films i know i probably would never watch of my own volition
[23:12] <eroomde> that's all i know
[23:13] <eroomde> Lunar_Lander: yes i really met dawkins
[23:13] <eroomde> i really live in the same city as him
[23:13] <Lunar_Lander> cool
[23:13] <Lunar_Lander> how is he in real life?

[23:13] <eroomde> he is really as i imagined
[23:14] <eroomde> good at writing books
[23:16] <eroomde> but i don't really get the whole mania
[23:17] <eroomde> he's doing popular science for a subject that is very popular/controversial to a large chucnk of english speakers
[23:18] <eroomde> anyway that's tangential

[23:24] <Laurenceb_> eroomde: you're top man now
[23:24] <Laurenceb_> when are you running for president?
[23:25] <Laurenceb_> did you ask elon if he was serious about recovery?
[23:26] <Laurenceb_> having said that the answer would probably have been scripted
[23:28] <SpeedEvil> I guess grasshoppers progress will tell us that
[23:30] <Laurenceb_> indeed
[23:30] <Dan-K2VOL> that video of it hopping 5m really illustrated the scale of the rocket
[23:30] <Laurenceb_> watching now
[23:30] <Dan-K2VOL> it looks like it went about 0.5m
[23:30] <Dan-K2VOL> but the rocket is freaking huge
[23:31] <Dan-K2VOL> I can hardly wrap my mind around it after watching so many of the lunar lander challenge test flights
