[10:40] <gonzo___> do wonder what they are doing though.
[10:40] <gonzo___> Seems that each ex uses differing modulation types, so could be testing the susseptability of gos to these different modes
[10:41] <gonzo___> I can't see it being a troops exercise. As if you wnated them to not rely on GPS for an ex, just don't issue them
[10:41] <Randomskk> you wonder what they're doing that couldn't be done in a closed lab
[10:41] <Randomskk> but yea, if it was a troop exercise just don't give them GPS, surely
[10:41] <Randomskk> or reprogram their GPS modules or whatever

[10:42] <Darkside> its likely a research thing
[10:42] <Randomskk> it could be an automated systems test where you want to actually really properly test the response to bad GPS
[10:42] <costyn> maybe it's jamming where the ground troops are seeminly getting signals, but they're 'off' somehow? (dunno if this is possible?)
[10:43] <Randomskk> yea but you'd think they could just reprogram the ground troop's stuff in that instance
[10:43] <Randomskk> maye

[11:29] <astrodog> gonzo: Or, the idea is to figure out how troops and the like react to suprise jamming.
[11:29] <astrodog> Easier than making custom GPSes for them that can fail on command.
[11:30] <costyn> astrodog: but if they're announcing it beforehand, troops are likely to know too?
[11:30] <astrodog> costyn: Sure, but who knows when they actually turn it on or off.
[11:30] <costyn> ah right
[11:30] <astrodog> Or they just assume, probably rightly, that most troops getting ready for an exercise aren't reading Ofcom notices.
[11:30] <astrodog> *grin*
[11:31] <costyn> but officers might?
[11:32] <costyn> well in any case, when is Galileo going to happen?
[11:32] <astrodog> They might. This is actually along the lines of a test we've done in oil and gas.
[11:32] <costyn> Full completion of the 30-satellite Galileo system (27 operational and three active spares) is expected by 2019... hmph
[11:33] <astrodog> (Do the engineers and righands know topography well enough to catch a bad survey, or will they just drill in the wrong place?)
[11:33] <astrodog> As it turns out... they just drill in the wrong place.
[11:33] <costyn> astrodog: hehe
[11:33] <Randomskk> surprise
[11:34] <astrodog> It was a fun setup... company permitted 2 wells, about 500 feet apart... then told the rig guys to drill one, but gave them the survey lat/longs for the other. (Along with the original survey for the correct location)
[11:35] <astrodog> They set up at the wrong location and drilled the well on the other side of a road.
[11:35] <astrodog> No one pointed out that, instead of turning left, they were turning right. It was amusing. :P

[11:38] <gonzo___> when sat navs first came out, someone asked me to reciommend one for them to buy.
[11:38] <gonzo___> I handed them an OS map and compas
[11:38] <astrodog> Heh.
[11:39] <gonzo___> They explained that they wanted a satnav to avoid having to carry maps. And were not too happy when I asked what they would then do wuith the GPS failed/went flat
[11:40] <astrodog> They wanted to avoid carrying... maps?
[11:40] <Randomskk> gonzo___: that's why I have a backup GPS =D

[11:41] <Randomskk> always

[11:43] <gonzo___> does your sextant fit in your map case?
[11:43] <Randomskk> of course
[11:43] <astrodog> Hey, the rolled map thing is legitimate. Who wants to be the one to say they don't know the target depth, because where it's written happens to be across a worn fold? :P
[11:43] <gonzo___> the aviation maps are noce as they have that lmainated coating

[11:44] <Randomskk> very nice

[11:44] <gonzo___> not seen those
[11:44] <Randomskk> they're great
[11:44] <astrodog> I'm curious... anyone here following the new fracking regs in the UK?
[11:44] <gonzo___> what price, compared to std?
[11:44] <mfa298> those laminated os maps can be good but get bulky.
[11:45] <Randomskk> yea, if you've got lots of just want reference it's a pain
[11:45] <Randomskk> but for trekking and stuff, great
[11:45] <Randomskk> http://www.shop.ordnancesurveyleisure.co.uk/products/paper-maps/paper-maps-ordnance-survey-great-britain/paper-maps-ordnance-survey-great-britain-os-explorer-active-map
[11:46] <astrodog> Reference, for me, is all digital. Paper happens when I'm stuck walking somewhere. :\
[11:46] <gonzo___> my living room has a wall that is just crying out for a map board, with pins and coloured strings
[11:47] <mfa298> When I'm out I've made some use of RMaps on android as well (OS Maps on phone/tablet) but that is somewhat reliant on a 3G signal (so backup is a real map)
[11:47] <Randomskk> google maps can pre-download a whole region which is really handy
[11:48] <Randomskk> but I also have a handheld GPS with full UK coverage anyway
[11:48] <Randomskk> and basic worldwide coverage
[11:48] <Randomskk> handy thing
[11:48] <gonzo___> Now I like the custom made map gift card. That really is a prezzie for a real man!
[11:48] <mfa298> RMaps seems to do that as well. Does take half the fun out of trying to work out where you are on a map though - although makes life easier if your surrounded by trees and cant see any useful landmarks/.
[11:48] <costyn> Randomskk: how do you tell google maps to download a regio?
[11:48] <costyn> n
[11:49] <Randomskk> on the menu, "make available offline"
[11:49] <costyn> ah cool
[11:50] <costyn> google maps on IOS is pretty cool now, still lacking some features compared to a real turn by turn navigation system/program, but pretty good
[11:50] <Randomskk> I really like google maps/navigation for android
[11:50] <Randomskk> works very well
[11:51] <mfa298> I've liked the google navigation on android as well the couple of times I've used it.
[11:51] <mfa298> Although I think I turned the voice off once and I'm not sure its working now (even after turning it on again)
[11:52] <Randomskk> it gets reeeeally quiet for me sometimes and I don't know why >_>

[14:59] <mattbrejza> it was the groups xmas party this morning, so done absolutely nothing so far
[15:15] <Navrac_Work> Some customers leave me speechless. <him> I can't print out anything from this program, its rubbish. <me> have you tried File>print on the menu <him> no
[15:19] <Navrac_Work> he wouldnt let tec support help him - screamed that he wanted to talk to the boss for a refund as it wouldnt print and hadnt even tried the print where its been in windows for 20 years.
[15:20] <Navrac_Work> I'm tempted to instruct sales to give him a refund as I dont want customers that stupid.
[15:20] <lz1dev> asking him to show you his workflow
[15:21] <mfa298> tell him he can have a refund but only if he can print out the correct form.
[15:22] <lz1dev> thats good, maybe offer short printing course for a fee
[15:25] <Navrac_Work> I'm just annoyed because he disturbed me whilst I was busy trying to build a payload.
[15:26] <fsphil> now that's just rude
[15:28] <Navrac_Work> that's what I thought. I pay people so I don't have to talk to customers

[15:54] <nick_> How is data sent from a payload to listeners
[15:55] <nick_> Or how should I write it.
[15:55] <nick_> It uses single side band to encode data using RTTY?
[15:59] <mfa298> for what most people do here it's rtty using ssb and they just send a long string with the relevant bits in it.
[16:00] <daveake> Take a look at http://ukhas.org.uk/communication:protocol?s[]=telemetry&s[]=string
[16:01] <daveake> ignore where it says "XML file"; that's changed now
[16:07] <nick_> Thanks dave
[16:07] <nick_> Is the following sentence a correct way to word it:
[16:08] <daveake> When you've decided what to send, and in what order, go to www.habhub.org/genpayload and enter it there
[16:08] <nick_> "...data is sent as an ascii string encoded in RTTY using single side band"?
[16:08] <daveake> For testing you need a payload doc, which describes how the sentence is built. You don't need a flight doc.
[16:08] <nick_> "...data is sent as an ascii string encoded in RTTY using single side band modulation"?
[16:09] <daveake> Well, the modulation is FSK
[16:09] Action: nick_ is trying to explain some hab stuff for a paper
[16:09] <daveake> We decode using SSB
[16:09] <nick_> OK
[16:10] <nick_> FSK = Frequency shifting ?
[16:10] <daveake> Yes
[16:10] <nick_> k =?
[16:10] <nigelvh> Frequency Shift Keying
[16:10] <nick_> thanks
[16:10] <daveake> ^ he types quicker than me
[16:10] <nigelvh> 75 WPM (I checked yesterday on a whim)
[16:10] <daveake> So 0/1 become 2 UHF frequencies a few 100Hz apart
[16:10] <daveake> :)
[16:10] <nick_> yeah, I understand how it works
[16:11] <nick_> I just need to phrase it in a way that a) people who don't know anything about radio transmissions can understand and b) people who do understand don't think I've said it in a stupid way.
[16:12] <daveake> :)
[16:12] <nick_> So what I have is:
[16:13] <nick_> Position and other data are transmitted from the payload during flight as an ascii string, encoded in RTTY using frequency-shift keying.
[16:13] <nick_> I guess I should not use RTTY
[16:14] <nick_> Although, I guess it's a little redundant anyway. Does it make sense just to say "encoded using frequency.."?
[16:15] <nigelvh> There are lots of encoding schemes that use frequency shift keying
[16:15] <nigelvh> RTTY is one specific kind
[16:15] <mfa298> rtty probably has some meaning as otherwise you're just sending 1's and 0's but nothing to describe their meaning.
[16:15] <Navrac_Work> encoded such that a zero is sent as one frequency and 1 as a different frequency.
[16:15] <nick_> What does RTTY really specify?
[16:16] <nigelvh> Radio TeleTYpe
[16:16] <nick_> yes, but is it just the start/stop bits and the payload?
[16:17] <Navrac_Work> that and control chars that we dont use
[16:17] <nigelvh> Depends on the character encoding. I believe you UK guys generally use ASCII encoding, so yes, RTTY mostly adds the start/stop and whatnot.
[16:17] <nigelvh> If you use the 5 bit Baudot code, then there's other stuff.

[22:06] <SpeedEvil> what can possibly go wrong?
[22:06] <gonzo___> and that tends to drag them around and split the remaining ones. Poss otheres may comment
[22:06] <SpeedEvil> make sure balloon is empty prior to filling
[22:07] <nigelvh> Yes, no mixing of air and H2
[22:08] <gonzo___> I had probs filling from the big bottle as trying to shut off the fill on the reg. Next time will put an air blow gun on the low pressure hose, and have a trigger control to the fill
[22:09] <nigelvh> Makes sense. I've got one of those.
[22:09] <gonzo___> but back to the filled balloon coming down, if it's not found soon, the H2 will leak oyt soon enough
[22:10] <gonzo___> and same as He, make sure your reg main bottle gauge will handle 200bar. I have one that I wound around the clock and is stuck there
[22:10] <nigelvh> Good note.
[22:12] <gonzo___> it was my propane reg. Got mixed up. tut tut
[22:12] <Laurenceb_> you improve the performance if you mix about 50% air in with the H2
[22:13] <Laurenceb_> then launch from a petrol station while smoking
[22:13] <nigelvh> Perhaps have a gas fight right beforehand?
