[00:51] <fsphil> 2013.. gonna take ages to remember that
[00:52] <fsphil> random fact from QI: 2013 is the first year since 1987 with four unique numbers
[00:53] <daveake> Well that is quite interesting
[00:53] <Lunar_Lander> yeah
[00:53] <Laurenceb_> the mark of a true nerd
[00:53] <Upu> praise be tis a miracle
[00:53] <Lunar_Lander> and you can recycle calendars from previous years
[00:54] <fsphil> I found a bug in one of my websites that was doing that. displayed the days of the month for 2012 for dates in 2013
[00:54] <daveake> It's the first single-digit year for quite a while in the Mayan calendar
[00:55] <daveake> I think I missed their firework display
[00:57] Action: mfa298 wonders how many people just counted through the years to check that fact
[00:58] <fsphil> ah, I always give the 1st Jan as my date of birth on websites and I've now got a couple of happy birthday emails
[00:58] <daveake> happy birthday Mr Mouse
[00:58] <fsphil> Anony to my friends
[01:00] <Lunar_Lander> fsphil, xD
[01:01] <mfa298> I heard recently that 1st Jan is a popular birthday on websites

[10:12] <Gadget-Mac> jcoxon: Seem to get good reviews, only downside being you have to replace the whole head
[10:12] <SpeedEvil> is 1ml/s for 10s OK?
[10:13] <SpeedEvil> for example
[10:13] <SpeedEvil> at that sort of range, a syringe driver might almost be an option

[15:56] <SP9UOB> RocketBoy: You wrote "data will include PIC die temperature (very roughly calibrated)" And im curious how are You measure temp? PIC afaik doesnt have temp sensor onboard
[15:58] <RocketBoy> the pic im using has a temp diode and constant current source that you can measure temp with
[15:58] <RocketBoy> using the 12bit A2D

[16:02] <G8GTZ> Yep - orig position was 275 degrees, tracker just took it round and has tracked it all the way over about 15 degrees

[16:06] <number10_M0MDB> must be a problem daveake - you are well within horizon
[16:07] <daveake> Yeah, found something ... :p
[16:07] <G8GTZ> Be useful if when FLdigi is used to CAT control the rig it could report back the frequency on to space nearus?

[16:08] <daveake> SMA plug from the FCD may not have been loose :)
[16:08] <Upu> think that information is already passed back G8GTZ
[16:08] <G8GTZ> OK
[16:08] <Upu> not sure if anything is being done with it yet
[16:09] <SP9UOB> RocketBoy: ok im found info about temperature diode in datasheet. Thanks.
[16:09] <G8GTZ> Drifting down to .072.2
[16:10] <G8GTZ> Problem would be everyone would report slightly different depending on cal of the rig ;-)
[16:11] <chrisg7ogx> yes would use up processing for what gained?
[16:11] <junderwood_M0JCU> Most modern radios are pretty close on frequency
[16:12] <junderwood_M0JCU> It would save an awful lot of "what dial freq?" requests if it were visible on spacenear.us
[16:12] <mclane> spacenear.us down?
[16:12] <DanielRichman> the latest version of dl-fldigi reports frequency if rig control is connected
[16:12] <DanielRichman> at the moment it's an experiment though, we'll wait to see how reliable it is
[16:12] <junderwood_M0JCU> Is there any way of seeing the uploaded freq data?
[16:12] <DanielRichman> but if it looks good certainly we'll have a page somewhere with current dial frequencies

[16:13] <SP9UOB> hi Lunar_Lander
[16:13] <DanielRichman> yeah. Do you want all the data/a method to get data in the future, or do you just want to see one example?
[16:13] <Lunar_Lander> hi SP9UOB
[16:13] <junderwood_M0JCU> Just curious to see what is being uploaded
[16:13] <Lunar_Lander> is x-f at the keyboard?
[16:13] <g0hww> is the tone spacing getting narrower woo?
[16:13] <g0hww> too, even
[16:13] <DanielRichman> junderwood_M0JCU: here's one example http://pastie.org/private/cbltvevx4watshjx2c38gw
[16:14] <junderwood_M0JCU> Although it would be interesting to be able to check during flights
[16:14] <GMT> I got the spacing down to 390 at the mo, seems to decode
[16:14] <g0hww> i've gone down to 360, looks like a better fit
[16:15] <number10_M0MDB> DanielRichman: thats interesting - I am not being able to control the 817 reporting IO error - so the info for my freq is not valid
[16:15] <junderwood_M0JCU> DanielRichman, fascinating. Is the freq dial or tone?
[16:15] <DanielRichman> junderwood_M0JCU: I have no idea. :P
[16:15] <DanielRichman> um
[16:16] <DanielRichman> it is "the first number I found in the rig control code that looked like it was probably dial frequency"
[16:16] <daveake> :D
[16:16] <DanielRichman> I expect it is dial
[16:16] <G8GTZ> How do I manually tweak the shift?
[16:16] <RocketBoy> bbl
[16:16] <DanielRichman> number10_M0MDB: interesting. It should only upload if the rig has been succesfully connected in the last ~30s or so
[16:17] <daveake> right-click the RTTY box bottom-left corner
[16:17] <DanielRichman> *upload frequency; uploading obviously works as normal without a rig
[16:17] <daveake> Then choose custom shift then set to what you want
[16:17] <DanielRichman> number10_M0MDB: perhaps reads are working but writes are not (or something like that?)
[16:17] <number10_M0MDB> maybe
[16:18] <number10_M0MDB> no its the valus thats in fldigi windo - but not on the rig
[16:18] <G8GTZ> Daveake - Tnks
[16:18] <chrisg7ogx> bearing change fast now
[16:18] <number10_M0MDB> value
[16:18] <g0hww> woohoo good decode
[16:19] <Upu> fsphil should be launching shortly
[16:19] <DanielRichman> number10_M0MDB: that is strange, because the bit that hooks into fldigi to get the dial frequency is meant to be in code called when the frequency is retrieved from the rig.
[16:19] <DanielRichman> which rig control library are you using?
[16:19] <G8GTZ> OK - will have to change from HRD to fldigi control during flights
[16:19] <number10_M0MDB> hamlib
[16:20] <number10_M0MDB> I have the same settings as upu - was wondering if its the usb-232 converter
[16:20] <G8GTZ> Can you operate fldigi in client server mode? My radio is 5 miles away ;-)
[16:20] <Upu> RDP G8GTZ :)
[16:21] <DanielRichman> number10_M0MDB: has the rig been succesfully connected once while fldigi is open, and now is no longer successfully connected?
[16:21] <G8GTZ> Currently using VNC - use remotehams for "normal" operation when I don't need PC control
[16:21] <number10_M0MDB> DanielRichman: rig has never connected to fldigi - works with hamdelux

[17:52] <Rob_m0dts> 434.192
[17:52] <Upu_M0UPU> cheers
[17:52] <Rob_m0dts> very strong!
[17:52] <Upu_M0UPU> we think the module has got too cold, its still responding
[17:52] <fsphil> it's a fantastic signal
[17:52] <Upu_M0UPU> and the code has pulled it out of power saving mode
[17:53] <Upu_M0UPU> fsphil's excellent antenna
[17:53] <fsphil> good old shagi

[17:53] <Rob_m0dts> lets hope it recovers, otherwise we can get rough location with DF from stations with yagi's
[17:53] <Upu_M0UPU> yeap
[17:53] <fsphil> that's what I'm thinking
[17:54] <fsphil> my radio is having to retune to keep up
[17:54] <fsphil> 434.191 now
[17:54] <G3VZV_Graham_> oh yes can see it here now on the waterfall drifting LF rather quickly tho
[17:54] <fsphil> yes
[17:54] <fsphil> it's still going up then :)
[17:54] <fsphil> it would be rather annoying if this thing got to 44km :)
[17:55] <Upu_M0UPU> its over the sea below isle of man I think
[17:56] <fsphil> yea that'd be about right
[17:56] <x-f> is it a 1600g?
[17:56] <fsphil> yea
[17:56] <fsphil> it is however, a year old
[17:56] <fsphil> but been stored well
[17:57] <x-f> i hope the GPS comes back
[17:57] <fsphil> it might come back at sunrise
[17:57] <fsphil> but who knows where it'll be by then
[17:58] <fsphil> dropping in frequency again

[18:05] <Elmar_PD3EM> on 434.063 still s1 signal from uXABEN. sounds like some software error or so...
[18:05] <GMT> I can still just about hear some kind of warbling rtty signal from XABEN, not a hope of a decode
[18:06] <PE7ER> drift changed so maybe bursted ?
[18:06] <fsphil> Rob_m0dts: what's on 434.435?
[18:06] <Elmar_PD3EM> didn't sound like a burst
[18:07] <Rob_m0dts> the noise from the ulockedtx i think, folowing it up the band..hi

[19:17] <fsphil> too steady to be the payload
[19:18] <Rob_m0dts> drifting al teh tine 435.600 now, use fm to dind it
[19:18] <Rob_m0dts> *find
[19:19] <fsphil> got noise on 435.608
[19:19] <fsphil> keeps moving
[19:19] <Rob_m0dts> thats it
[19:19] <fsphil> 435.615
[19:19] <Rob_m0dts> yes
[19:19] <fsphil> well that can't be local to either of us
[19:19] <Rob_m0dts> drifting up
[19:20] <fsphil> 635 now
[19:20] <Rob_m0dts> yes
[19:20] <fsphil> hopefully this means it will snap back
[19:20] <Rob_m0dts> hope so
[19:20] <Rob_m0dts> maybe well gone by then distance wise
[19:21] <Upu_M0UPU> well it should get warmer as it gets over 35km
[19:21] <Upu_M0UPU> was a slow ascent
[19:21] <Rob_m0dts> i'm off now for a bit but will be back
[19:22] <Upu_M0UPU> cheers Rob
[19:22] <fsphil> thanks for tracking again Rob
[19:22] <fsphil> that's twice you've been the only one to hear it :)

[20:58] <jcoxon_> evening all
[20:58] <SP9UOB> evening jcoxon
[20:58] <domlin> ahoyhoy
[20:59] <jcoxon_> so
[20:59] <jcoxon_> i've got a proposal for UKHAS and further
[20:59] <jcoxon_> mainly for UK people
[21:00] <jcoxon_> we might be able to get permission for a launch this weekend
[21:00] <jcoxon_> when the winds are going to be very slow
[21:00] <jcoxon_> so a floater is going to stick around
[21:01] <fsphil> that would be cool
[21:01] <jcoxon_> so i've built a FM repeater
[21:02] <fsphil> ntx2+nrx2?
[21:02] <jcoxon_> indeed
[21:02] <jcoxon_> so i propose that on the weekend we make an APRS network on 434.075
[21:02] <fsphil> I made one of those a while back but the quality through it was very poor
[21:02] New2Balloon (~aucuba@ left irc: Ping timeout: 248 seconds
[21:02] <jcoxon_> the balloon can listen into this
[21:02] <jcoxon_> and retransmit the packets on 10mW
[21:03] <fsphil> you thinking digipeater or audio repeater?
[21:04] <jcoxon_> currently its a parrot repeater
[21:04] <SP9UOB> fsphil: we are using cross-band repeater build from 2 BAOFENG uv-3r
[21:04] <jcoxon_> i'm having a fight with soundmodem
[21:04] <fsphil> I've frequently had fights with soundmodem
[21:05] d0wnl0rd (4ff8abef@gateway/web/freenode/ip. joined #highaltitude.
[21:05] <fsphil> baofeng would be too powerful for us
[21:05] <SP9UOB> jcoxon_: just put my dsDIGI up, as digipeater: http://sp9uob.verox.pl/dsdigi.html (use google translate)
[21:05] <SP9UOB> fsphil: right.. UK OFCOM regulations
[21:05] <jcoxon_> so the current setup goes like this:
[21:06] <jcoxon_> 1) send rtty
[21:06] <jcoxon_> 2) record 15 seconds
[21:06] <jcoxon_> 3) play back 15 seconds
[21:06] <jcoxon_> repeat!
[21:06] <fsphil> be interesting to see if I could get a message throuhg that, with the yagi setup here
[21:07] <jcoxon_> what do you think?
[21:07] <fsphil> I think the problem with mine was that it was recording and transmitting at the same time
[21:07] <fsphil> the transmitter was blinding the receiver
[21:07] <fsphil> doing the recording and transmitting separate is a good plan
[21:08] <fsphil> how are you recording it?

[21:56] <New2Balloon> someone able to answer a parachute question?
[21:58] <daveake> They're round
[21:59] <New2Balloon> :) they are BUT friend of mine, a rocketeer, is curious as to why deployable chutes aren't used? He suggests that for a closer decent to home, the chute could be set to be deployed at say 5000ft. There must be a reason why you don't do this?
[21:59] <lz1dev> complexity
[21:59] <daveake> It's possible. Not good if it doesn't work.
[21:59] <daveake> Simple is good
[22:00] <Upu> no need to have the added complexity
[22:00] <daveake> things go wrong in hab. Simpler = more reliably
[22:00] <daveake> _e-y
[22:00] <Upu> we don't go up quick enough for it to be a problem
[22:00] <Upu> also if it just dropped from altitude it would tumble badly
[22:00] <Upu> RX would be a nightmare and you'd likely loose your antenna or bend it
[22:01] <Upu> so having the parachute adds a level of stability
[22:01] <New2Balloon> I'm comfotable with simple, I like this, these answers will show him :) What about a streamer to slow and stabilise before the shute goes?
[22:01] <Upu> or how about just the chute :)
[22:01] <daveake> Yep. It's common to get telemetry all the way down from burst. Didn't even lose any packets in my SSDV flights
[22:02] <New2Balloon> don't get me wrong, I'm with you
[22:02] <Upu> the other thing is if doesn't deploy
[22:02] <New2Balloon> but he's going to want more than "cause thats what we do"
[22:02] <Upu> you have 1kg of payload which immediately poses an imminent danger to members of the public
[22:02] <lz1dev> one day somebody must build a sky crane for landing a hab
[22:02] <Upu> simple is good
[22:03] <daveake> Many HAB points for 1st person to emulate the Curiosity landing
[22:03] <lz1dev> what do you have against skycranes :(
[22:03] <Upu> oh Skycrane was just amazing
[22:03] <Upu> opposite end of the scale from simple though :)
[22:03] <lz1dev> oposite end of the awesome scale
[22:04] <lz1dev> wait
[22:04] <daveake> And Mars isn't populated by people who may get killed and/or litigious if you land 1kg of payload on them
[22:04] <lz1dev> i've confused myself
[22:05] <New2Balloon> :) thanks guys, enough here to cut and paste to show him!
[22:05] <lz1dev> if we move all the people to mars
[22:05] <lz1dev> that would solve the problems
[22:06] <Upu> a worthy plan however I wonder if the lack of breathable atmosphere may scupper it
[22:06] <fsphil> get your hab to mars </arnie>
[22:08] <lz1dev> would habing work on mars?
[22:08] <lz1dev> give the lack of atmosphere
[22:08] <daveake> You're in a JohnnyHAB

[22:09] <lz1dev> so, we need to terraform mars to produce atmosphere
[22:09] <lz1dev> and move all humanity there
[22:10] <fsphil> you could do a balloon on mars
[22:10] <fsphil> the atmosphere is mostly carbon
[22:10] <fsphil> just need a big balloon, and it wouldn't get very high

[22:11] NickSF (~NickSF@027bc91d.bb.sky.com) left irc: Ping timeout: 252 seconds
[22:12] <fsphil> jupiter is mostly hydrogen
[22:12] <fsphil> a regular launch would actually fall
[22:12] <lz1dev> so, fill the balloon with air
[22:12] <fsphil> you'd need some kind of vacuum balloon
[22:12] <fsphil> air would fall quicker
[22:12] <lz1dev> nowait
[22:12] <fsphil> I guess if you heated it
[22:12] <fsphil> you could do a hot air balloon
[22:12] <fsphil> or hot hydrogen in this case

[23:11] <SP9UOB> anyway im burn one rfm22 just by let step-up converter drain battery
[23:11] <SP9UOB> it was flapping and after a while died
[23:11] <fsphil> I think I prefer the ntx2
[23:12] <SP9UOB> i can write/read register but rf signal doesnt came up
[23:12] <daveake> Yes, there's something reassuringly simple about the NTX2 ... If Power Then Signal
[23:12] <chrisg7ogx> is there a particular freq worth leaving on to monitor over night please?
[23:12] <daveake> (except for when I didn't screw in the SMA plug properly)
[23:13] <fsphil> the frequency drift means it's very unlikely leaving a radio on would catch it
[23:14] <fsphil> yes even the ntx2 can't help when the antenna falls off
[23:14] <fsphil> although someone still managed to track that one

[23:18] <fsphil> I was going to have it reset every 10 strings
[23:18] <fsphil> exactly the same idea
[23:18] <fsphil> the problem might not have been with the rfm22 in this case
[23:18] <fsphil> the signal got very noisy before it disappeared
[23:19] <SP9UOB> im resetting every 15 minutes
[23:19] <fsphil> there could have been something wrong with the power
[23:19] <chrisg7ogx> ok good night and thanks very enjoyable
[23:19] <fsphil> night chrisg7ogx
[23:19] <fsphil> thanks for trying
[23:19] <SP9UOB> fsphil: You mean low voltage or noisy vcc ?
[23:19] <fsphil> the noise could have came from the vcc
[23:20] <fsphil> the gps lost lock first
[23:20] <fsphil> which itself is unusual
[23:21] <fsphil> it's a tricky one to test
[23:21] <fsphil> we need a really good freezer :)
[23:22] <SP9UOB> fsphil: strange is: ny gps also lost fix, and uXaben too
[23:22] <fsphil> aliens
[23:22] <SP9UOB> ny freezer cools down to -20C
[23:23] <fsphil> there's a chance the power supply on this was too efficient, and didn't generate enough heat to keep itself going
[23:23] <fsphil> which is a nice idea, means it could all come back on when it warms up
[23:23] chrisg7ogx (0278ee09@gateway/web/freenode/ip. left irc: Ping timeout: 245 seconds
[23:24] <SP9UOB> ok, im set thr receiver on at about 6 utc

[23:36] <bigcw> evening gents
[23:36] <griffonbot> Received email: Philip Heron "Re: [UKHAS] Belated launch announcement: STORM"
[23:36] <fsphil> howdy bigcw
[23:36] <bigcw> i just wondered what the current thinking on the EZCAP dongles was in terms of using them as a receiver
[23:36] <bigcw> I don't have an SSB-capable rig for 70cm
[23:37] <jcoxon_> bigcw, yeah if you've got one then go for it
[23:37] <jcoxon_> they aren't the best
[23:37] <jcoxon_> but are a great start
[23:37] <bigcw> I don't have one
[23:37] <fsphil> they're great for testing
[23:37] <bigcw> we tracked a balloon some time ago using a scanner borrowed from a mate
[23:37] <bigcw> in fact I think it was one of yours jcoxon ;)
[23:37] <fsphil> I believe they've been used to track flights too
[23:37] <jcoxon_> oh right!
[23:38] <jcoxon_> my ft790
[23:38] <bigcw> no I mean one of your balloons
[23:38] <jcoxon_> oh right
[23:38] <jcoxon_> my ft790 is in the wild somewhere :-)
[23:39] <daveake> mine is in bits
[23:39] <bigcw> just for a beginner it's an expensive bit of kit to buy
[23:39] <bigcw> I only have FM kit for 70cm
[23:39] <fsphil> hunting defenceless CB radios?
[23:39] <jcoxon_> bigcw, if budget is tight go for an ezcap
[23:40] <fsphil> there's also an amp+filter for 434mhz, although I believe they're out of stock at the moment
[23:40] <bigcw> is it a reasonable proposition to track your own balloon with one?
[23:40] <jcoxon_> yes
[23:40] <jcoxon_> you can compensate by perhaps getting your antenna a bit higher
[23:40] <bigcw> fsphil - yes, I've seen those, was going to ask about them next ;)
[23:40] <bigcw> I've got a big Diamond outside
[23:40] <fsphil> they'd be useful in a chase car, as you're likely never more than 50km from your payload
[23:41] <bigcw> X-200N
[23:41] <bigcw> it's base is about 4m above the ridge of the roof
[23:42] <fsphil> nice
[23:42] <fsphil> I've got the little brother of that, and have tracked flights 580km away
[23:42] <fsphil> with an ft-817 to be fair
[23:42] <fsphil> but also a funcube dongle
[23:42] <bigcw> ahh yes, I suspect the yaesu will have far better performance!
[23:42] <fsphil> yea
[23:43] <fsphil> both the funcube dongle and the rtlsdr have trouble with the diamond
[23:43] <fsphil> broadcast fm signals and tetra are very strong in this area
[23:43] <fsphil> and tend to over power them
[23:43] <fsphil> I have to have filtering or they don't hear much
[23:43] <bigcw> do you have the habamp unit?
[23:43] <fsphil> yea
[23:44] <bigcw> is it still a problem when using that?
[23:44] <fsphil> I've not used it with the rtlsdr, but it makes a huge difference with the fcd
[23:45] <fsphil> without it the fcd just can't hear the signals
[23:46] <fsphil> but I am very far from most launches, so they tend to be borderline decodable anyway
[23:46] <fsphil> it doesn't take much to push them into the noise
[23:46] daveake (~Dave@daveake.plus.com) left irc: Quit: Leaving
[23:47] <bigcw> interesting, thanks phil
[23:47] <bigcw> short of buying a 'proper' SSB rig for 70cm they seem like a reasonable option
[23:48] <fsphil> yea, at that price you can't really go wrong
[23:48] hola_pola (~chatzilla@ip-83-134-158-13.dsl.scarlet.be) left irc: Quit: ChatZilla 0.9.89 [Firefox 17.0.1/20121128204232]
[23:48] <fsphil> if all else fails you can receive TV with them
[23:48] <bigcw> the SDR# software looks quite interesting too
[23:49] <bigcw> at least I can have an experiment with SSB on 2m and 70cm, although my aerial is vertical so probably not the best
[23:49] <fsphil> mine too but then I don't do any voice through it
[23:50] <fsphil> I think the last contest about half the ssb stations where vertical
[23:50] <bigcw> I only do FM at the moment so it's not been a problem
[23:50] <bigcw> I should really make some 'proper' use of the license one of these days
[23:51] <griffonbot> Received email: CHRIS INWOOD "[UKHAS] Re: Belated launch announcement: STORM"
[23:51] <fsphil> haha
[23:51] <fsphil> yea I think I've had a single chat since I got it
[23:51] <fsphil> I do like to dabble with digimodes sometimes
[23:52] <bigcw> yeah digi is where my interest lies mainly
[23:52] <bigcw> i've been doing a lot of fiddling with APRS
[23:53] <fsphil> do you get much traffic on 144.800 there?
[23:53] <bigcw> not as much as I would like
[23:54] <bigcw> but enough to make it interesting
[23:56] <jcoxon_> bigcw, where you based?
[23:56] <bigcw> just outside Aylesbury in Buckinghamshire
[23:56] <jcoxon_> oh cool
[23:56] <bigcw> cool?
[23:56] <jcoxon_> my next launch will actually have an FM tx
[23:56] <bigcw> excellent :)
[23:56] <jcoxon_> though range will be reduced
[23:56] <bigcw> which band?
[23:57] <jcoxon_> 70cm
[23:57] <bigcw> ok, I guess the tracking will be somewhere else then?
[23:57] <bigcw> ie another band
[23:59] <jcoxon_> well they'll be ssb 70cm as well
[23:59] <jcoxon_> basically we are going to try a low power repeater
[23:59] <bigcw> won't you have a load of problem with filtering with all that going on so close together?
[23:59] <bigcw> *problems
