[18:15] <OZ1SKY_Brian> what is the freq range for metro weather balloons on 4xxMHz?
[18:16] <fsphil> good question. I only know the local one is 402.7mhz
[18:17] <OZ1SKY_Brian> ok
[18:19] <OZ1SKY_Brian> looks like maybe 403.5
[18:19] <OZ1SKY_Brian> I see they got a permit for that freq

[20:32] <OZ1SKY_Brian> 50mhz ah nice, i got antenna ready for that
[20:33] <SP9UOB_Tom> dds is expensive and needs more power

[20:43] <OZ1SKY_Brian> well during daytime yes, but at night 21MHz is pretty dead
[20:45] <OZ1SKY_Brian> 30meters is pretty good day and night, but also a big antenna
[20:45] <SP9UOB_Tom> OZ1SKY_Brian: should work in Line-of-sight at night
[20:45] <OZ1SKY_Brian> sure just about everything will work in line of sight, but then a higher freq would be better, less noice

[20:46] <mfa298> getting audio into the rpi is also interesting - neither of my cheaper usb sound cards worked.
[20:47] <SP9UOB_Tom> OZ1SKY_Brian: so 21 MHz would be compromise - working in LOS and good overhorizon :-)
[20:47] <SP9UOB_Tom> ad day
[20:47] <SP9UOB_Tom> at day
[20:47] <SP9UOB_Tom> and there are some web SDRs
[20:48] <SP9UOB_Tom> and MUCH cheaper than Iridium :-)
[20:49] <SP9UOB_Tom> OZ1SKY_Brian: 30m - 2 * 7.5 m dipole - it fits :-)
[20:49] <chrisstubbs> mfa298 Yes its a shame it does not have a built in audio input
[20:49] <OZ1SKY_Brian> sure OTH would be better on 21 than 434 for sure, but also to remember the noice and rx setup, on 434 you have less noice and higher antenna gain.
[20:50] <SP9UOB_Tom> OZ1SKY_Brian: ... and I have 10.140 MHz crystal :-)
[20:50] <OZ1SKY_Brian> perfect :-)
[20:52] <mfa298> chrisstubbs: I did see some reports that some cheaper usb sound cards work just not the ones I've got, I also found the pro audio device I've got works but that's probably not a route most people would want to go.

[20:53] <Lunar_Lander> hello
[20:53] <OZ1SKY_Brian> Hi Lunar_Lander
[20:53] <chrisstubbs> mfa298 i have an ezcap that *might* work as a audio input. No idea about linux and drivers though
[20:57] <mfa298> if its an ezcap your using as an sdr again there's limited cpu available. You can run rtl_tcp but I'm not sure if there's enough cpu to get audio out.
[20:58] <mfa298> I've started wondering if there's any chance of doing any of the fldigi/sdr processing on the gpu but it's not something I know enough about at the moment to look at properly.
[20:59] Hiena (~boreger@81.93.195.181.datatrans.hu) left irc: Ping timeout: 256 seconds
[21:00] <chrisstubbs> Oh no i can use my radio for the tuning side of things, its a ezcap with rca inputs
[21:00] <mfa298> could be worth a try.
[21:03] <mfa298> I've only got as far as having dlfldigi running with white noise going in but the waterfall was very slow at updating.
[21:04] <mfa298> the waterfall missed me fiddling with the radio at times so I'm suspecting it will struggle decoding rtty
[21:04] <chrisstubbs> I guess it would have to be pretty much rewritten to use the power of the GPU
[21:05] <chrisstubbs> Were you running the pi at standard frequency or overclocked?
[21:05] <mfa298> one of these days I might learn a bit more about gpu programming and then look at the fldigi code to see if its possible to do.
[21:06] <mfa298> should have been standard frequency
[21:06] <mattbrejza> the biggest cpu time would be the fft, especially if you want to do it at 3.2MSPS
[21:07] <SP9UOB_Tom> Lunar_Lander: are You from Germany ?
[21:07] <SpeedEvil> random question. does anyone happen to know of a nice source of co2 absorbtion graph - I want to make an expired co2 sensor
[21:07] <mfa298> mattbrejza: I think at this point we're more into dl-fldigi with a normal radio rather than sdr so shouldn't that higher a sample rate.
[21:07] <mattbrejza> oh ok
[21:07] <mattbrejza> tbh not sure why fldigi uses what it does anyway
[21:08] <mfa298> but still I suspect it's that aspect of fldigi thats the issue whether it's fft or something else.
[21:09] <mfa298> I did see a couple of posts about people using fldigi on the pi but I don't know what modes that was for.
[21:09] <mfa298> I'm guessing different modes might need different amounts of cpu, but I'm also wondering if the dl part adds much cpu requirement.
[21:10] <mattbrejza> well the dl part should only use some when uploading, and not much anywya
[21:10] <mattbrejza> fldigi needs to fft for afc
[21:10] <mattbrejza> other than that theres FIR filters
[21:11] <mattbrejza> but on screen stuff might be reasonably signifcant
[21:11] <mfa298> I've started wondering about that - especially the waterfall.
[21:11] <mattbrejza> if it were to be run as a terminal application it might be less
[21:12] <mfa298> and whilst you can stop the waterfall I've seen the cpu load doesn't change much so it might be doing processing it doesn't need to (tested on an old xp machine)
[21:12] <mattbrejza> there will be techniques such as reducing FIR filter length and sample rates that would reduce cpu load further
[21:13] <mattbrejza> if you put the fft to max the cpu load is a bit more i think
[21:13] <mattbrejza> not that i would know how, but a profiler for c++ would answer all this
[21:13] <mattbrejza> or rather how to do a profile
[21:14] <mattbrejza> persumably you would also want it to be more automatic then fldigi as a rpi deployment probably wouldnt be manned

[21:16] <mfa298> my interest in whether a pi could do the job would be for a car pc so it could be manned, although if there's less gui (or at least no waterfall) its going to need some way to know where the mark/space freqs are.
[21:17] <mattbrejza> oh i see
[21:17] <mattbrejza> get a windows surface :P
[21:18] <mfa298> but I'm guessing others might like to use a pi as more of a remote system - especially if it could be possible to do sdr as well.
[21:18] <mfa298> but that might be asking a bit much of a pi.
[21:19] <chrisstubbs> I would like to set it up sitting on top of my radio, and just VNC into it to set the freq and select a payload
[21:19] <chrisstubbs> also CAT control of the radio would be nice as an afterthought
[21:20] <SpeedEvil> mfa298: the spectrum display is much cheaper than the waterfall
[21:23] <mfa298> I might have to have more of a play sometime.
[21:24] <mfa298> I also keep meaning to try looking at the gps code on the windows version to see if I can see why that doesn't work
