[00:00] <Dan-K2VOL> astrodog that's not really true, the model includes a lot of information from the ocean/land surface, as they siginificantly affect weather
[00:00] <Dan-K2VOL> interesting: http://www.nco.ncep.noaa.gov/pmb/changes/
[00:00] <Lunar_Lander> OK daveake I was trying to recreate a arduino uno on perfboard wanted to power it off a lipoly, thus I got a stepup that I had left over and that sparkfun doesn't sell anymore
[00:01] <Lunar_Lander> I had everything soldered up and also a green LED directly tied (with resistor of course) to the power rail I made
[00:01] <Lunar_Lander> then I wanted to test it without the chip in place
[00:01] <astrodog> Dan: What I mean is that a model that was run 6 hours ago will be, generally, off by, at the very least, how things have moved in that time. Given that... you might be able to correct GFS to current conditions.
[00:01] <Randomskk> astrodog: the models try and do that
[00:01] <Lunar_Lander> well, connected 2 AA batteries and LED didn't light, tested with the multimeter and the output was 1.5 V
[00:02] <Randomskk> as in, the model published at 0000Z isn't a snapshot
[00:02] <Randomskk> but instead a two week forecast
[00:02] <Lunar_Lander> then I turned the board around and the stepup was burning hot
[00:02] <Randomskk> so they track how they expect things to move in that time
[00:02] <Dan-K2VOL> the GFS provides predicted weather (and system movement) for 192 hours into the future
[00:02] <astrodog> Why not use a shorter term model?
[00:02] <Lunar_Lander> I actually didn't watch the pins when turning over for soldering and connected the input to GND and the GND pin to the VCC
[00:03] <Dan-K2VOL> there are many models, long and short term. The GFS is very accurate in the short term and globally available freely
[00:03] <Dan-K2VOL> interesting page here showing when the models have had insufficient input data: http://www.nco.ncep.noaa.gov/pmb/nwprod/realtime/
[00:03] <Upu> too late for that here Dan-K2VOL :)
[00:04] <Dan-K2VOL> lol
[00:04] <Lunar_Lander> daveake, that was my new stupidiest champion moment
[00:05] <Upu> anyway
[00:05] <daveake> It wins against some stifff competition
[00:05] <Upu> we had a laugh
[00:05] <Upu> and I thought the lauch was one of the smoothest we've done
[00:05] <Lunar_Lander> and I just learned that it has a max current of 100 mA
[00:05] <Lunar_Lander> and that SD cards can use up to 100 mA
[00:06] <Lunar_Lander> means the stepup is pretty underdimensioned
[00:06] <daveake> And we learnt what a 5kg neck lift feels like

[00:07] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[00:07] <Dan-K2VOL> look at this chart - they had a severe shortage of weather balloon data yesterday http://www.nco.ncep.noaa.gov/pmb/nwprod/realtime/gfs/t00z/gfs.012.gif
[00:07] <Dan-K2VOL> well, not severe, but significant
[00:07] Gnea (~gnea@unaffiliated/gnea) left irc: Ping timeout: 255 seconds
[00:07] <Upu> could that have an effect ?
[00:07] <astrodog> Interesting. I wonder if they post the locations for that.
[00:07] <Dan-K2VOL> sure
[00:07] <astrodog> Upu: Fewer data points... absolutely.
[00:07] <Dan-K2VOL> possibly, they're very open about it
[00:08] <daveake> We should send them our data :D
[00:08] <Upu> I'll mention it as a possibility
[00:08] <astrodog> Dan: Lemme see if I can find their coverage. I could lay that on the other map.
[00:08] <Dan-K2VOL> RAOBF stands for rawinsonde fixed base (on land)
[00:08] <Upu> anyway bed time for me had a long day
[00:08] <Upu> daveake should be ok as he snoozed in the pub
[00:08] <Dan-K2VOL> night upu!
[00:09] <daveake> nn seeya tomorrow
[00:09] <Upu> night all
[00:09] <daveake> I just closed my eyes :D
[00:10] <Dan-K2VOL> nice chart here that shows the time of day the launch 175 balloons: http://www.nco.ncep.noaa.gov/pmb/nwprod/realtime/rap/t23z/rap.011.gif
[00:12] <Lunar_Lander> daveake, good night :)
[00:12] <Lunar_Lander> btw
[00:12] <daveake> nn
[00:12] <Dan-K2VOL> night daveake
[00:12] <Lunar_Lander> I don't want to close my eyes
[00:12] <Lunar_Lander> I don't want to fall asleep
[00:12] <Lunar_Lander> cause I miss you baby
[00:12] <Lunar_Lander> and I don't wanna miss a thing
[00:12] <Lunar_Lander> xD
[00:12] <daveake> will monsters jump out at you?
[00:12] <astrodog> Dan: Interesting. It doesn't look like NOAA launches them to cover Europe.
[00:13] <Lunar_Lander> hopefully not
[00:13] <Dan-K2VOL> no, I know they get space data for the rest of the planet, but I'm not sure if they get the rawinsonde data from european daily launches
[00:13] daveake (~daveake@daveake.plus.com) left irc: Quit: Leaving
[00:14] <Lunar_Lander> I think they exchange data around the globe
[00:14] Nick change: arko_ -> arko

[00:14] <Lunar_Lander> I am just assuming that

[00:20] <Dan-K2VOL> oh my
[00:20] <Dan-K2VOL> yes they take data from EVERYWHERE
[00:21] <Dan-K2VOL> look at this: http://www.emc.ncep.noaa.gov/gmb/gdas/station/global/index_vert.html
[00:21] <Dan-K2VOL> and choose W221(Pibl WIND)
[00:22] <Dan-K2VOL> then View
[00:22] <astrodog> Interesting... it looks like the US Navy's NOGAPS system ties in with GFS now.
[00:24] <astrodog> https://www.fnmoc.navy.mil/wxmap_cgi/cgi-bin/wxmap_single.cgi?area=gfs_europe2&dtg=2012120100&prod=w30&tau=000&set=All
[00:26] <astrodog> It would appear that GFS was off by a few hours. NOGAPS picked it up... but the reverse seems to be just as likely.
[00:26] <Dan-K2VOL> wow choosing W220 or T120 shows the staggering global amount of (presumably) daily weather balloon flights
[00:27] <Randomskk> crazy isn't it
[00:28] <astrodog> Dan: I wonder what the predictor would look like with the NOGAPS data.
[00:28] <niftylettuce> hey all \o
[00:28] <Dan-K2VOL> that's available in the ensemble forecasts, but that's copyrighted
[00:29] <Dan-K2VOL> love copyrights
[00:29] <niftylettuce> so what's latest and greatest, new going on here? i been out for a bit :)
[00:29] <niftylettuce> anyone flying an MQ-9 Reaper Fiber Glass model :)?
[00:29] <astrodog> Dan: NOGAPS can't be.
[00:29] <astrodog> It'd be under the same regs as GFS.
[00:29] <Dan-K2VOL> you can take public domain data and include it in copyrighted material
[00:30] <Dan-K2VOL> look at all the books people sell with shakespeare in it
[00:30] <astrodog> Dan: I think the Navy publishes NOGAPS.
[00:34] <astrodog> Hey, they do. That's slick... you can get a KML.
[00:35] bertrik (~quassel@rockbox/developer/bertrik) left irc: Remote host closed the connection
[00:35] <Dan-K2VOL> what you need is a global forecast data file
[00:40] <astrodog> http://www.usgodae.org/ftp/outgoing/fnmoc/models/nogaps/latest_data/ That, or?
[00:40] <Dan-K2VOL> yeah just found that
[00:41] <astrodog> It looks like they're a bit higher resolution... but worse at predicting severe weather, compared to GFS.

[00:53] <astrodog> It looks like they source the data very differently... which makes the corrolation between the models particularly interesting.
[00:53] <Dan-K2VOL> probably would be interesting to overlay as a second path

[01:00] <astrodog> It looks like the most useful part of NOGAPS might be to fill in the time gaps between GFS runs.
[01:08] <astrodog> It also looks like their COAMPS model might be applicable... it's, aparently, possible to run COAMPS on your own.

[11:33] <jcoxon> astrodog, :-)
[11:33] <jcoxon> are flights are usually a little more interesting
[11:34] <jcoxon> e.g. high altitude floats
[11:34] <gonzo_mob> was there a launch this morn?
[11:34] <astrodog> You know... it might be possible to divine some of what they were looking to figure out just from the telemetry data. (Things like temperature, and stability, anyway)

[11:37] <astrodog> jcoxon: I've got it. I was wondering if anyone happened to catch what the exact frequencies, etc. were, compared to what they had configured it to be. Then at least, they'd know if the heater worked. *grin*
[11:37] <astrodog> From what I gathered yesterday... the sea has a nasty tendency to do this sort of thing.
[11:37] <gonzo_mob> just seem to recall a mention of an early morn flight

[12:21] <jcoxon> do you have code for switching calls depending on which country you are over
[12:22] <fsphil> don't -- there's code to detect if inside the UK but nothing else
[12:22] <fsphil> if the borders of other countries was available, it would be simple to add support for that though
[12:23] <fsphil> it's stored as an array of coordinates

[15:49] <Lunar_Lander> some 4 km from the beach
[15:49] <Upu> not so often no
[15:50] <Upu> no Lunar its probably not coming back
[15:50] <Lunar_Lander> :(
[15:50] <Lunar_Lander> yea and we got falling tide at the moment as well
[15:50] <Lunar_Lander> :(
[15:50] <astrodog> If they get lucky, it'll wash up tomorrow or the day after.
[15:50] <astrodog> If we don't see it in a week or so... it's in for a very long trip, most likely.
[15:51] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[15:51] <Lunar_Lander> I know of two occasions where payloads were found from the sea
[15:51] <Lunar_Lander> Apex III in Holland
[15:51] <Lunar_Lander> and one of eroomde's payloads I think in Denmark or so
[15:51] <astrodog> The model gives it a 65% shot of washing up near Southsea. Depends on which way the tide is going when it crosses the inlet.
[15:52] <Lunar_Lander> do you have a model of the sea so to speak?

[15:53] <Lunar_Lander> so yea that is not that good
[15:53] <Lunar_Lander> for a small space like that
[15:53] <astrodog> For the model's purposes... that actually helps. The closer it is to shore, the less accurate my model is going to be.
[15:53] <Lunar_Lander> ah
[15:54] <astrodog> (Because I don't have a chart for that area... so I'm stuck looking at very large trends)
[15:54] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[15:55] <astrodog> Upu: Something came up with a client recently, that I think this sort of thing could actually help with a lot.
[15:55] <Lunar_Lander> in other news, last night a Soyuz launched the european dual-purpose earth observation satellite Pleiades 1B successfully into orbit
[15:56] <jaapie> So what are the odds of recovery?
[15:57] <astrodog> jaapie: The odds of it washing up near Southsea are around 65%, the odds of recovering it from there... *shrug*
[15:58] <jaapie> Oh well, the ongoing recovery effort can be fodder for discussion/speculation going forward!
[15:58] <Upu> low to nil
[15:59] <Upu> big sea
[15:59] <Upu> small box
[15:59] <astrodog> I do think some of what they were trying to figure out can be extrapolated from the telemetry, though. For example, we know the heater didn't burst into flame.
[15:59] <astrodog> :P

[15:59] <Lunar_Lander> xD
[16:00] <Upu> I await Lesters write up
[16:00] <Lunar_Lander> astrodog, earlier I watched the last but one ariane 5 launch and when the tracking station in brazil acquired the signal, the commentator said "We were just picked up by our tracking station over the Border in Brazil, and they're reciving telemetry. What's telemetry?"
[16:00] <Lunar_Lander> xD
[16:00] <astrodog> Lunar: Heh.
[16:01] <jaapie> Perhaps if you published a reward offer involving T shirts Lego and Beer some fisherman might turn it in?
[16:01] <Lunar_Lander> (the standalone question is funny, but he was actually addressing his co-host)
[16:01] <astrodog> Upu: Using the battery information, it might be possible to extrapolate a bit more, since you can work out the draw, and temperature.
[16:01] <number10> Upu: did daveake learn any boat negotiating skills from lester - sound like it would be useful ;)
[16:01] <Upu> lol basically to negotiate the hire of a boat
[16:01] <number10> yes
[16:01] <Upu> you pull out a wad of £10's

[16:03] <astrodog> A few clients of mine are trying to get... daily imagery of activity within a 10 square mile area.... without paying SPOT the tens of thousands of dollars it'd take. It occurred to me last night that HAB might be a good solution for them.
[16:06] <number10> this is a pause of the gopro >30km above stansted from their flight http://i.imgur.com/2Prsx.jpg
[16:06] <astrodog> Interesting.... any idea what lens/camera they were using?
[16:07] <number10> it was from the gopro movie paused - so is not meant to be a still

[16:09] <number10> as you can see from this weeks flights - they do not always go exactly where predicted
[16:10] <astrodog> That's kind of what I figured, but even if it required multiple launches... it's still much, much cheaper than SPOT.
[16:10] <Lunar_Lander> astrodog, SPOT or Pleiades?
[16:10] <astrodog> I would imagine it'd be set up like a SPOT tasking.... IE, "Here's the footprint we want to cover, at X resolution".
[16:10] g0hww (~g0hww@46.18.104.230) joined #highaltitude.
[16:11] <astrodog> Currently, they use SPOT tasking, or aircraft.
[16:11] <Lunar_Lander> ah
[16:11] <DMDeck16> this was doing the rounds the other week, made me chuckle "Felix Baumgartner has just found the ball from Chris Waddle's penalty in World Cup 1990"
[16:11] <astrodog> Both of which run about 5k per run.
[16:12] <astrodog> (And must be prepaid... so you're paying even if you just get pictures of clouds.)
[16:12] <number10> I think no one has risked sending up an SLR pointing down. I know one of the BBC launches that steve did had a good camera pointing to the horizon
[16:12] <astrodog> By overinflating the balloon... you can reduce the burst altitude, right?
[16:14] Arbition (Arbition@compsci.adl/treasurer/arbition) joined #highaltitude.
[16:14] <x-f> yes, or use a smaller balloon
[16:14] <x-f> or both
[16:14] <RG_LZ1DEV> smaller balloon would be cheaper
[16:14] <x-f> or a cutdown
[16:14] <astrodog> Huh. What would be involved in trying it? No idea what the regs for this sort of thing are. :\
[16:15] <Lunar_Lander> astrodog, hm
[16:15] <Lunar_Lander> and I think a Pleiades run would be even more expensive?
[16:15] <Lunar_Lander> as they explained yesterday how it can do even better imagery and stuff
[16:16] <astrodog> Yeah.
[16:16] <astrodog> You also have to commit to a huge area if you're looking for specific tasking.

[16:19] <Lunar_Lander> hello Spindrift
[16:19] <Spindrift> Hello
[16:19] <x-f> astrodog, if you are in the US, regulations are fairly free, if your payload is under 4 kg (iirc), you don't need a NOTAM from FAA or anything
[16:19] <number10> you need to find a launch site and try to get permission to launch, and hope that the weather good. so getting all these to happen to take photos of a particular area would be difficult
[16:20] <astrodog> number10: The wonders of oil and gas... they'd have an array of possible surface locations to launch from.
[16:21] <number10> ah - I was late into the converation - so didnt realise who may be wanting to do it
[16:21] <Lunar_Lander> Spindrift, you are from Luxemburg?

[16:29] <number10> astrodog: was late in the coversation, so not sure of the imagery they are looking for - all you need is a standard payload with a slightly different arrangement of the antenna and as expesive a camera you are prepared to loose - with maybe having to modify it
[16:30] <number10> for battery and automation of pictures

[16:49] <astrodog> It'd be pretty easy to work out a maximum spin rate, at a given resolution.
[16:50] <SpeedEvil> indeed
[16:51] <astrodog> You could also, depending on the strip size... get away with being quite a bit lower than 30km.
[16:51] <SpeedEvil> a couple of small servos, a mechanical damper to keep the spin under control, a mems gyro, and you're about done

[16:59] <SpeedEvil> there are a couple of ways

[19:07] <astrodog> From what I can tell... an airship is a better technical solution but the regulatory environment makes a balloon preferable.
[19:08] <navrac> yep, not impossible though. I was looking at video downlinks from balloons a few months back - got as far as testing some cheap circuitry to achieve it and to get rid of the spin - but ran out of time to fly it.
[19:09] <navrac> its pencilled in next year after relay balloons and controlling float height
[19:09] <astrodog> For what we're looking at... we could actually get away with high-res stills. The idea being to provide daily imagery over the smaller footprint.
[19:10] <navrac> I was using the video link as a cheap way of sending images down. possibly by takingahires and then sending it as sequential frames

[20:12] <navrac> ah yeah, that sort of limits it doesnt it -although if you combined the payload with a buoy.....
[20:12] <Upu> I'd be lying if we hadn't discussed that
[20:12] <Upu> should have done what Tim did
[20:12] <Upu> and put floats around it
[20:12] <navrac> well it didnt exactly follow the predictedpath...
[20:13] <Upu> no
[20:13] <navrac> bunch of whiners on the batc chat
[20:13] <Upu> yeah I heard
[20:13] <navrac> well some of them anyway
[20:14] <Upu> Interesting though
[20:14] <Upu> we picked up G4GUO from either there or Southgate
[20:14] <navrac> I think they expected a full film crew
[20:14] <Upu> and he is on the coast of Worthing which is why he got it at 100 meters
[20:15] <Upu> it sounds like he got a string just as it went in the water
[20:15] <navrac> yes it did bring in some new people who were very nice
[20:15] <Upu> it cut off just at the altitude
[20:15] <Upu> shame he wasn't on the ROCK payload
[20:15] <Upu> might have got all of it
[20:15] <navrac> what happenedto the iridium tracker
[20:16] <Upu> good question
[20:16] <Upu> signal issues with think due to spinning

[20:18] <Upu> did get one more packet after that one
[20:18] <Upu> but the

[20:18] <Upu> S9+20 to 0 mid way through the last packet. I did rush down to the seafront
[20:18] <Upu> with a pair of Binoculars to see if I could see anything but no luck.

[20:19] <jcoxon> GSM sometimes comes through in these situations
[20:19] <jcoxon> navrac, you pinged me earlier
[20:20] <navrac> oh i sent you a sketch for a camera mount idea - but google docs removed the drawingandjust left the labels...
[20:20] <Upu> yeah GSM for once would have been recommended this time
[20:20] <navrac> that ship tracking site might come in handy in the future...

[20:29] <Upu> afk a few
[20:29] <fsphil> pong jcoxon
[20:29] <navrac> knowing the scale from google maps and the fact the positon isshown on the screen of the turn of the ship
[20:29] <jcoxon> fsphil, put http://habhub.org/files/picoatlas/france2.kml
[20:29] <jcoxon> into google maps
[20:31] <fsphil> oh nice
[20:31] <fsphil> did you draw that?

[20:32] <jcoxon> nope
[20:32] <jcoxon> http://downloads.cloudmade.com/europe/western_europe/france#downloads_breadcrumbs
[20:32] <jcoxon> got the .poly file
[20:32] <jcoxon> took out every second line a couple of times to wittle it down to 150 points or so
[20:32] <jcoxon> then make it into a kml
[20:33] <navrac> i presume this is the aprs on boundary
[20:33] <fsphil> perfect. you could even further reduce the resolution around the coast
[20:35] <jcoxon> navrac, also what the country prefix should be
[20:35] <navrac> lol
[20:35] <navrac> good find there
[20:36] <jcoxon> so i propose we make one for every country
[20:36] <navrac> and good work
[20:36] <jcoxon> i'll write a script to do the hardwork
[20:36] <RG_LZ1DEV> what are those boundaries for ?
[20:37] <navrac> lots of spacein the eeprom on the atmels thatsnot uses
[20:37] <jcoxon> to switch callsign prefix on an aprs payload
[20:37] <RG_LZ1DEV> oh i see
[20:38] <RG_LZ1DEV> you can probably go with really low resolution then
[20:39] <jcoxon> yeah it was more to see if could do it
[20:39] <jcoxon> right i'll bbiab

[20:44] <malgar> hello! I would like to calculate the burst elevation for a small, simple party balloon.. how to do it? all the simulators start at 200g
[20:45] <SpeedEvil> you could just measure it
[20:45] <SpeedEvil> measure the burst diameter directly

[20:50] <malgar> SpeedEvil: and from the burst diameter how can I calculate the burst elevation? Ok i have to compute the expansion of the helium and the ascent rate.. BUT the latex is elastic and it compress the helium changing the density? isn't right this?

[20:51] <SpeedEvil> yes
[20:51] <SpeedEvil> neglecting this will get you a max burst salt
[20:52] <malgar> ok; do you think that it isn't very different?
[20:52] <SpeedEvil> ideally you would while inflating it measure the pressure
[20:52] <malgar> uhm
[20:52] <SpeedEvil> burst alt
[20:52] <malgar> ok
[20:52] <SpeedEvil> you can make a simple manometer with a u of clear tube
[20:53] <malgar> yes
[20:53] <SpeedEvil> but the decrease in density rate in the lower atmosphere means the error will be small

[20:57] <malgar> and ideally is right to say that: starting low helium volume = higher altitude but less payload ?
