[00:00] <esculca> i understand
[00:00] <esculca> but still, you will learn a lot buy using the Yaesu
[00:01] <esculca> if someone is selling one (cheap!!) pelase let me know
[00:02] <gonzo_> quite a few of the HAB community are radio amateurs anyway, so tend to but transcivers
[00:03] <gonzo_> and a few have got their amareur licences as a result of getting into radio via HAB
[00:03] <gonzo_> but in that case the 817 is a good choice
[00:04] <esculca> do you knowanyone that wants to see one?
[00:07] <fsphil> that pretty much describes me gonzo_

[00:08] <Lunar_Lander> gonzo_, dang, sorry
[00:08] <Lunar_Lander> http://ukhas.org.uk/_detail/guides:ft817.jpg?id=guides%3Alinkingarduinotontx2
[00:08] <gonzo_> it's odd how we get introduced to hobbies
[00:08] <Lunar_Lander> it actually says in the title
[00:08] <Lunar_Lander> XD
[00:08] <gonzo_> yep that's the one LL
[00:08] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[00:08] <Lunar_Lander> I got a 790
[00:08] <fsphil> modified 817
[00:08] <gonzo_> ft817 of ond flavour
[00:08] <gonzo_> one
[00:08] <Lunar_Lander> but I am FT-790R
[00:09] <Lunar_Lander> but I don't know if it is the II or not
[00:09] <Lunar_Lander> because I think I saw one that looked older from the front panel design
[00:10] <gonzo_> the mk2 had, from mem, a line of buttons. The mk1 had a bank of 6 (or was it 8) in a square bext to the VFO knob
[00:10] <gonzo_> I had a few ft290's a while ago
[00:11] <Lunar_Lander> yeah
[00:11] <gonzo_> old tech, but work well. And have the advantage of very low current draw on RX, so will work on theinternal batts foir ages
[00:11] <Lunar_Lander> I got the one with the 8 buttons
[00:11] <gonzo_> the 817 internal batts are a waste of time#
[00:11] <Lunar_Lander> yeah that is true
[00:12] <Lunar_Lander> I ran mine for 38 hours and some more during my duration test
[00:12] <Lunar_Lander> now the batts are empty
[00:12] <Lunar_Lander> simple C size alkalines
[00:12] <fsphil> the 790 runs for ages
[00:12] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[00:12] <fsphil> it's why I still have one
[00:12] <gonzo_> 817 won't last 38mins
[00:12] <fsphil> welllll
[00:12] <fsphil> a few hours at least
[00:12] <fsphil> if you don't tx
[00:12] <gonzo_> mine don't
[00:13] <fsphil> hmm.. mine last a few hours
[00:13] <gonzo_> will take them out and pit sweeties in there, more useful
[00:13] <fsphil> indeed
[00:13] <fsphil> pack it full of lipos
[00:14] <gonzo_> lipo's don't have useful voltages. I have some in a dia cast ali box with a switching reg
[00:15] <fsphil> three in series might do
[00:15] <Lunar_Lander> XD
[00:15] <Lunar_Lander> that reminds me of a tip from years ago
[00:15] <Lunar_Lander> if you don't like people smoking in your car, put sweets into the ashtray
[00:16] <fsphil> or don't let them in your car
[00:16] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[00:16] <gonzo_> rremove that ashtray and put something more useful in the place
[00:17] <fsphil> it's my money box
[00:17] <gonzo_> car park change

[00:18] <gonzo_> three lipo batt is prob useable in an 817
[00:19] <gonzo_> I went for 2cell and a switcher up to 11v or 13.8v (selectable)
[00:20] <gonzo_> took a bit of work to quieten down the rf noise

[07:28] <x-f> haha

[07:29] <x-f> radim_OM2AMR, we have the same "winter problem" here too - seems like nobody expects the snow in late november

[07:32] <nosebleedkt> santa-clause is coming
[07:34] <x-f> ooh
[07:35] <x-f> this year i wish for a spectrograph and a permission from CAA to launch
[07:36] <radim_OM2AMR> :-) and all that wasted Helium from redbull stratos
[07:37] <SamSilver> i wish for a meduim size loto win
[07:41] <arko> anyone who has time to look at this: http://wiki.032.la/nsl/Thermal_Vac_Chamber
[07:41] <arko> it's an idea right now, i did some very basic modeling
[07:41] <Dan-K2VOL> you don't really need the vac
[07:41] <Dan-K2VOL> just use dry ice
[07:42] <arko> i want to see the thermal properties of not having convection for heat exchange
[07:42] <Dan-K2VOL> put a block of dry ice in a styrofoam cooler with a little PC fan and your parts will be at 60C in less than an hour
[07:42] <Dan-K2VOL> ah
[07:43] <arko> cooling im not so worried about
[07:43] <Dan-K2VOL> you'll need to add in solar radiation and IR radiation from the ground if you want to really
[07:43] <arko> the vac and cooling at the same time can answer a lot of questions
[07:44] <Dan-K2VOL> unless you have the solar and earth inputs, they won't answer the questions adequately as a flight will
[07:45] <SamSilver> arko: you will need elec connection to inside the box that will not leak air in (wires can let air in through the core)
[07:45] <arko> solar and earth inputs?
[07:46] <SamSilver> i would be keen to see the results .... some graphs and shit
[07:46] <arko> SamSilver: yeah, i have a connectors
[07:46] <arko> yeah, right now i haven't worked the details
[07:46] <arko> but it's definitly getting plotted real time
[07:46] <arko> and logged
[07:46] <arko> data is everything
[07:46] <SamSilver> kewl
[07:48] <Dan-K2VOL> infrared radiation input from the sun and the earth are the major factors in heating a payload, since convection/conduction is essentially nonexistent at float
[07:48] <arko> yeah
[07:48] <arko> i've been thinking about IR
[07:48] <arko> i know it's very important
[07:48] <arko> it's just a 'how' at this point
[07:49] <UpuWork> morning all

[08:58] <x-f> tricky XKCD this morning
[08:59] <costyn> x-f: do you know the answer?
[09:00] <x-f> costyn, it required a lot of googling, but i think i found it
[09:00] <x-f> 1) as the violet lightwaves are shorter than blue, they get scattered even higher in the atmosphere
[09:01] <x-f> 2) cones in our eyes are less responsive to violet color
[09:02] <x-f> so the sky is more violet than we see, but i still appears blue to us

[09:02] <Dan-K2VOL> could also be due to harmonic absorption of the violet by ozone

[09:05] <costyn> x-f: and camera sensors have been tuned to represent our eyes? I would think it would look more violet there?
[09:07] <radim_OM2AMR> fsphil, may I have one "morning" question regarding SSDV ? :-)
[09:07] <x-f> costyn, hmm..
[09:08] <fsphil> can ask as many as you want radim_OM2AMR :)
[09:08] <radim_OM2AMR> :-) thanks
[09:09] <radim_OM2AMR> I'm trying to send converted packet through RTTY and not seeing anything in SSDV RX window
[09:09] <fsphil> if the ozone layer is at 20-30km (wikipedia) wouldn't a balloon at 40km see a dark violet sky?
[09:09] <radim_OM2AMR> is there any other settings in fl-digi necessary ?
[09:09] <fsphil> converted?
[09:10] <radim_OM2AMR> I took jpeg, ran it through ssdv tobinary format
[09:10] <fsphil> ah you're using the current version of dl-fldigi
[09:10] <fsphil> there was a last minute change to the format
[09:10] <radim_OM2AMR> I can see 256 bytes chunks in hexa, divided by start header
[09:11] <fsphil> can you show me a screenshot?
[09:11] <Dan-K2VOL> not much air to scatter any light at that altitude fsphil
[09:11] <fsphil> true
[09:12] <fsphil> although nearer the horizon might still be enough
[09:12] <radim_OM2AMR> fsphil, I'm using 3.21.50 version, unfortunatelly I haven't screenshot now
[09:12] <fsphil> radim_OM2AMR: windows?
[09:12] <radim_OM2AMR> Mac and Win, same behavior
[09:13] <costyn> x-f: :)
[09:13] <fsphil> you'll need to build a version from source, unless someone has a more recent .exe already compiled?
[09:13] <radim_OM2AMR> I'm just sending the first one / packet for test, I hope I can see the first chunk, isn't ?
[09:14] <fsphil> yea
[09:14] <fsphil> but you'll need to build from source
[09:14] <radim_OM2AMR> OK, so I'll try to compile it from latest source tonight
[09:14] <radim_OM2AMR> thanks !
[09:14] <fsphil> I made the checksum bigger just after the last dl-fldigi was released
[09:16] <radim_OM2AMR> is there in dl-fldigi any info, that received packet has wrong checksum ?
[09:17] <fsphil> nope. there's no way for it to identify a packet unless the checksum passes
[09:17] <fsphil> if you upload a recording of it I can run it on my laptop
[09:18] <radim_OM2AMR> ok, so in case checksum is correct, I have to see something in RX window
[09:18] <fsphil> yes
[09:19] <radim_OM2AMR> great, I'll try it at home :-)

[11:49] <SpeedEvil> Laurenceb: had you seen the data level attack paper mentioned OK n Slashdot of GPS?
[11:49] <Laurenceb> yes
[11:49] <SpeedEvil> funky
[11:49] <Laurenceb> its pretty obvious really
[11:49] <SpeedEvil> yeah
[11:49] <costyn> link?
[11:50] <Laurenceb> we often used to do similar stuff with simulators and amplifiers at work
[11:50] <SpeedEvil> I'd not considered the effects of screwing up the receiver badly enough to crash them
[11:50] <SpeedEvil> but data level attacks are quite obvious
[11:51] <SpeedEvil> I wonder if patches to ntpd are coming down the pipe

[12:03] <mfa298> nice one about the device that stores the data to flash and has a divide by zero error.

[12:04] <SpeedEvil> indeed
[12:04] <mfa298> good lesson on never trusting input data until youve checked it.
[12:05] <SpeedEvil> sanity checking almanac and ephemirides is a lot of work
[12:05] <SpeedEvil> basic range checks would be easier though
[12:05] <mfa298> although >0 might seem like a useful check expecially if you're going to divide by that value

[12:07] <gonzo_> there are commercial record/replay units avail now, intended for bench testing of GPS units. But not much req to make them useable as jammers
[12:08] <mfa298> So how long until some media mogul spends some money on breaking some recievers (Random 007 Reference)
[12:16] <gonzo_> wondered when someone would mention that!
[12:17] <gonzo_> we know that simple jamming is easy. Even unintentionally.
[12:18] <gonzo_> and with the availability of GPS repeater kit, it won't be long before jamming blackspots start appearing
[12:19] <gonzo_> There have been documented issues of amplified TV antennas going rogue and causing long term probs
[12:19] <Darkside> what will be interesting is the effect on STM networks
[12:19] <Darkside> well
[12:19] <Darkside> on whatever networks that use GPS timing
[12:19] <Darkside> they usually have about 2 days after the gps died before the rubidium or cesium standard they use gets far enough out for the optical connection to die
[12:20] <gonzo_> I know that tetra use gps locking in the uk, but it is robust enough to cope with loss of that
[12:20] <Darkside> im thinking more high speed fibre networks
[12:20] <SpeedEvil> assuming that the GPS can't be used to pull the rb standard out
[12:21] <Darkside> well this is what i mean
[12:21] <Darkside> all the sites are locked to gps
[12:21] <Darkside> if gps goes away, all the standards will start drifting off
[12:21] <gonzo_> slowly drift the clock (back to the 007 references)
[12:21] <Darkside> i've been told by a network engineer that 2 days without gps will kill a a base station here
[12:21] <Darkside> well, n one of the networks in australia anyway
[12:22] <gonzo_> more damaging are probably going to be the unintentional (or intentional, buit with collatoral damage) jamming
[12:23] <gonzo_> lots of cases of jammers intended to stop spy in the cab boxes, causing probs that the owner were oblivious to
[12:24] <gonzo_> these gps repeaters have the added risk that, having filters in them, if they are going to hoot, it's far more likely it will do so on gps freqs
[12:25] <gonzo_> thet are now licencable, but lots of people install them oblivious to the legalities
[12:26] <gonzo_> (Our work had one, till they were informeed. And that was professionally installed, the co who specialised in that had no idea it was not legal, or were being selectivly forgetful!)
[12:27] <mfa298> I get the impression a lot of people work on the principle that "I can buy it therefore is must be legal to use" especially for anything radio related.

[18:52] <fsphil> hi hi
[18:52] <MNSP> I know, I've been off the radar so long I may as well be new ;-)
[18:53] <fsphil> I recognise the letters :)
[18:53] <nigelvh> Happens to everyone.
[18:53] <MNSP> My name is MNSP and I'm a lapsed HABer
[18:54] <nigelvh> Hi MNSP
[18:54] <MNSP> LOL, thanks nigelvh and fsphil

[18:56] <fsphil> I've been HAB'ing for a few years now

[18:56] <MNSP> Shame, but your loss

[18:57] <nigelvh> I have a unique flavor.

[18:58] <arko> this is my favourite conversation
[18:58] <nigelvh> LOL

[18:59] <eroomde> we say chips too, rather than fries
[18:59] <arko> you guys also drive on the wrong side of the road
[18:59] <eroomde> because they're called chips
[18:59] <MNSP> wouldn't it be chips not crisps
[19:00] <eroomde> crisps are crisps
[19:00] <nigelvh> chips means not fries
[19:00] <eroomde> chips are chips
[19:00] <arko> we call them freedom fries
[19:00] <eroomde> it's really quite simply really

[19:02] <DrLuke> probably arrows
[19:02] <eroomde> shooting some ballots votin totin for o'bummer?
[19:02] <eroomde> i am not sure where i'm going with this
[19:02] <nigelvh> Yesterday I was shooting a 9mm. But I also have a .22 rifle and a 12 gauge shotgun.
[19:02] <arko> nice
[19:02] <arko> i got a rebarrelled 308 mauser
[19:02] <eroomde> i can't read '9mm' in the context of a gun without adopting an arnie voice
[19:02] <eroomde> mentally
[19:02] <DrLuke> The biggest gun I've ever been shooting with is my steyr aug airsoft
[19:02] <fsphil> I was with some hunters once, and swore I'd never do it again. it was horrible
[19:02] <arko> looking at getting a 12 gauge
[19:02] <nigelvh> I don't hunt

[19:04] <arko> nah
[19:04] <fsphil> give the animals guns, then it's fair

[19:04] <arko> why do i need to kill it
[19:04] <DrLuke> let your inner animal hang out once in a while
[19:04] <eroomde> i have no objections to shooting stuff to eat
[19:04] <nigelvh> Personally, I don't have the constitution to do all the gutting and whatnot afterwards, so I won't shoot an animal. Otherwise I like animal meat just fine.

[19:21] <Lunar_Lander> what if I move it left and turn it 180°?
[19:22] <nigelvh> Also is that a voltage regulator in a socket right below the GPS?
[19:22] <Upu> the veroboard is all copper strips
[19:22] <Lunar_Lander> no that is the DS18B20

[19:24] <fsphil> no harm in having extra caps

[19:25] <fsphil> the black/white wire at the top reminds me of beatlejuice
[19:25] <Lunar_Lander> xD
[19:25] <Lunar_Lander> that's our antenna ground wire
[19:26] <fsphil> just a random obeservation, don't mind me :)
[19:26] <Lunar_Lander> xD
[19:26] <Lunar_Lander> green is wired up directly to the power
[19:26] <Lunar_Lander> with a resistor of course
[19:26] <Lunar_Lander> yellow lights if Lock !=3 as said above
[19:26] <Lunar_Lander> red has no function currently
[19:26] <Lunar_Lander> and blue flashes when RTTY is transmit
[19:28] <Dan-K2VOL> Lunar_Lander, the other guys are right. the GPS antenna is a quadrifilar helical, which has a radiation/reception pattern that will cover the entire sky perfectly when the antenna stub points straight up. It is designed to NOT have reception of the ground. any antenna needs to be kept as far away from anything metal as possible
[19:30] <Dan-K2VOL> It will receive signals from any direction, but they're optimized for up
[19:30] johnboiles1 (~Adium@bastion.sfo1.yelpcorp.com) joined #highaltitude.
[19:30] <Dan-K2VOL> Lunar_Lander you could just replace that header on the GPS board with a right angle header
[19:31] <nigelvh> That would work
[19:32] <radim_OM2AMR> Lunar_Lander, try to use very short coax cable from NTX2 to antenna, and as much ground as you can under NTX2
[19:32] <radim_OM2AMR> let the NTX2 lay down

[19:35] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[19:36] <radim_OM2AMR> it was used in my flight with small modifications (another connector, GND under NTX, SMD resistors, etc)
[19:36] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[19:38] <radim_OM2AMR> Lunar, will you use Arduino ?
[19:38] <Lunar_Lander> do you mean to wire up the solder points under the NTX2 to GND?
[19:38] <Lunar_Lander> yes
[19:39] <radim_OM2AMR> no, try to use solid copper (other not-etched pcb) for example, or piece of metal plate
[19:40] <radim_OM2AMR> like is used on NTX housing
[19:41] <Lunar_Lander> ah
[19:41] <Lunar_Lander> I see the coax cable soldered to a ground pin of the NTX2 in your photo
[19:41] <radim_OM2AMR> check Upu's badge board design from UKHAS conference, copper under NTX
[19:41] <Lunar_Lander> as the antenna out pin is the center one on the left side
[19:42] <Lunar_Lander> ah what they call "ground plane"?
[19:42] <costyn> Upu: ping
[19:43] <costyn> does anyone know if I can power the habamp from the EZCAP ? or do I need to get 5v from a separate usb port?
[19:44] <radim_OM2AMR> Lunar, center wire from coax is connected to center pin, coax is bended there, but it was replaced then
[19:45] <radim_OM2AMR> Lunar, Groud Plane is antenna type, not that copper ground
[19:46] <Lunar_Lander> radim_OM2AMR, ah OK

[20:21] <jcoxon> evening all
[20:21] <Upu> Evening
[20:21] <nigelvh> Afternoon
[20:22] <Upu> I got some super caps today 5F 2.5v ones, very small I was expecting them to be much larger
[20:22] <jcoxon> oh awesome, where from?
[20:22] <nigelvh> I bet pretty high ESR
[20:22] <Upu> Farnell
[20:23] <SpeedEvil> there are high and low esr ones
[20:23] <fsphil> the two I have have different capacity. can't wire them in series
[20:23] <Upu> http://uk.farnell.com/cooper-bussmann/hv1020-2r7505-r/capacitor-super-5-0f-2-7v-edlc/dp/2148485?in_merch=New%20Products
[20:23] <Upu> ESR 0.04ohm
[20:23] <SpeedEvil> the price is inversely proportional to the ESR
[20:23] <nigelvh> That's pretty good
[20:24] <Upu> 20mill with 10mm dia
[20:24] <jcoxon> mass?
[20:24] <Upu> 2.3g each
[20:24] <jcoxon> not bad at all

[20:25] <Upu> I'm going to pull the solar payload apart and work out why its not working tomorrow
[20:25] <jcoxon> :-)
[20:25] <Upu> answer is probably "no sun"

[20:59] <KT5TK_QRL> Upu: What's wrong with the solar payload?
[20:59] <Upu> hey KT5TK
[20:59] <Upu> doesn't work :)
[20:59] <Upu> got 10 mins ?
[21:00] <KT5TK_QRL> Not enough charging or what?
[21:00] <KT5TK_QRL> sure
[21:00] <Upu> Not sure doesn't turn on properly but might be the total lack of sun here in the UK :)
[21:00] <Upu> PM
[21:00] <KT5TK_QRL> Come here to Texas and fly it here.
[21:01] <KT5TK_QRL> Enough sun :)
[21:01] <Upu> indeed :)
[21:01] <Upu> I've PM'd you :)

[21:06] <Armand> Upu, mono or poly solar cells ?
[21:06] <Upu> err 4 x 50mA cells
[21:07] <Upu> they did work
[21:07] <Upu> then they stopped
[21:07] <Upu> so I need to work out why
[21:07] <Armand> Monocrystalline is better, if I recall..
[21:07] <Armand> I know any cells will run poorly in bad light. :/
[21:08] <jcoxon> hey KT5TK
[21:08] <Upu> well also the stepup I use needs some extra circuits to make sure it doesn't lock on start up in low light
[21:09] <Armand> I get quite a good supply off mine, but then.. I'm using much larger than anything you'd consider for HAB.
[21:10] <nigelvh> Yeah, I've seen funky startup situations too.
[21:11] <nigelvh> BTW KT5TK_QRL, The parts for my new revision are here today, so now it's just the boards I'm waiting on.
[21:15] <KT5TK_QRL> Hi all. Nigelvh: great. Sorry that I didn't have enough time to comment on your boards. They look good though
[21:16] <nigelvh> No problem. I think I'm pretty happy with them. Managed to rearrange a few of the pins to make routing nicer, and the board is a bit smaller, plus the fixed errors, and the boost converter, so I think a big improvment has been made.

[21:22] <jcoxon> KT5TK_QRL, when is your next flight
[21:22] <jcoxon> ?
[21:24] <Armand> Stupid question perhaps... but.. there's like zero chance of getting a permit for HAB flights near Heathrow, right?
[21:24] <jcoxon> its unlikely
[21:25] <jcoxon> worth travelling a bit even just for your own piece of mind
[21:25] <Upu> yeah
[21:25] <Armand> I can't really travel much, I don't have my own car. :(
[21:25] <jcoxon> train!
[21:25] <Upu> balloons going near international airports = brown trousers time
[21:25] <Armand> Not for me.. I won't be on the planes. :P
[21:26] <KT5TK_QRL> jcoxon: Next flight is N0D http://www.w5acm.net/b32.html
[21:27] <Armand> I tend to find the trains a real nuisance if you want to move anything delicate. So many clumsy/ignorant jerks. -_-
[21:27] <jcoxon> KT5TK_QRL, so this weekend
[21:27] <jcoxon> awesome
[21:27] <Armand> I learnt that trying to take scenery to Games Workshop.
[21:27] <jcoxon> is the HF PSK using dl-fldigi?
[21:28] <KT5TK_QRL> Yes, just need to set up habhub
[21:28] <Lunar_Lander> what does brown trousers time mean exactly?
[21:28] <KT5TK_QRL> Same protocol as last time but on 18.100MHz now
[21:28] <Armand> Pooing ones shorts.
[21:28] <Lunar_Lander> ah
[21:28] <Lunar_Lander> thanks
[21:28] <Armand> lol
[21:29] <Armand> I could explain the "alert levels", but I expect I might get kicked. :P
[21:29] <KT5TK_QRL> The PecanPico APRS will QSY to 144.800 in case we get over the atlantic
