[07:49] <fsphil> I could setup a stream but I'm quite far away

[11:24] <andrew_M0SOT> I really need to get my fasthead preamp sorted - 15 meters of RG8(mini) isn't hel;ping me at all here :P
[11:24] <andrew_M0SOT> *masthead
[11:24] <craag> What's up with it?
[11:25] <andrew_M0SOT> the bias tee I made to power it over coax seems to screw with the signal - I think I picked the wrong inductor for it
[11:25] <andrew_M0SOT> so the only way to use the preamp is to put a battery up in the roof, which is a lot of effort
[11:25] <craag> Ah darn. Might be too much parasitic capacitance.
[11:26] <andrew_M0SOT> quite possibly
[11:26] <craag> We should get a lab session organized with the rf test gear at some point, I've got a few similar issues I'd like to take a look at.
[11:26] <andrew_M0SOT> that would be great

[12:23] <Geoff-G8DHE> As above RTTY 600B 600Hz shift, 8+2 bits but set the bandwidth to \Auto as its around 600Hz that was my problem
[12:23] <HixWork> craag, that's probably result in lots of free-time

[12:23] <gonzo__> yep, I have 600/600 and about 750hz bandwidth

[12:35] <Elwell> I wondered if it altered the flashing sequence depending on telemetry - for those visually tracking it :-p
[12:35] <S_Mark> receiving 600 baud on this, http://www.stratodean.co.uk/2013/01/the-receiver-and-antenna.html not bad
[12:35] <LazyL_M0LEP> PAVA's signal getting chopped about a bit at the moment.
[12:36] <craag> Elwell: Would probably need to be a bit brighter. Something possibly worth trying at night though with a flash bulb or the like!
[12:37] <fsphil> I'm building a small payload with a 3 watt LED for that
[12:37] <Elwell> I wonder about a bloody bright LED close to the baloon - a night / pre dawn launch would look good
[12:38] <HixWork> In the balloon would be very very cool
[12:39] <gonzo__> you could charge a cap and pulse a high wattage LEG phil

[12:57] <Laurenceb> at some point you will hit the bandwidth limit of HAM voice kit
[12:57] <fsphil> 1200 just fits

[12:59] <daveake> for the second time in 2 days I'm sat in a car whilst yours and fsphil's code tracks
[12:59] <daveake> lol
[12:59] <daveake> worked first time
[12:59] <craag> Great, as intended at last.
[13:00] <craag> gonzo__: n-PSK would be the way to go I think.
[13:00] <fsphil> PSK would require new hardware
[13:01] <craag> New software yes, but new hardware?
[13:01] <fsphil> the NTX2 can't do PSK
[13:01] <craag> QPSK at 500 symbols/sec?
[13:01] <craag> Oh, tx hardware ofc
[13:01] <daveake> 30km image resolution increases

[13:02] <fsphil> I'd be happy to try psk
[13:03] <fsphil> but the transmitter needs to be as reliable as the ntx2 :)
[13:03] <SamSilver> the cable that I see in the pictures is for ???
[13:03] <Laurenceb> you might be able to force a si4432 to to n-PSK

[13:49] <LazyL_M0LEP> ...and signal's drifting quite a bit
[13:49] <mfa298> the ssdv packets seem to be getting through better than the telem, I don't think I've got a good telem packet for a while and about 2/3 of the ssdv
[13:49] <junderwood_M0JCU> same here
[13:49] <Geoff-G8DHE> Agreed
[13:50] <craag> FEC ftw.
[13:50] <Geoff-G8DHE> Isn't there FEC in the image data ?
[13:50] <craag> Yep. RS coding iirc.
[13:50] <LazyL_M0LEP> PAVA's sent nowt readable for three minutes
[13:50] <fsphil> yea, RS
[13:51] <mfa298> I wasn't sure if the FEC was for the whole packet or just the data in the packet, I'm guessing it must be on the packet
[13:51] <junderwood_M0JCU> no sign of AVA floating
[13:51] <fsphil> entire packet, apart from the first byte
[13:51] <LazyL_M0LEP> Need a better antenna here, I guess.
[13:51] <costyn> whats the dial for AVA atm? trying to listen in again
[13:51] <GMT> .454
[13:51] <GMT> or .452
[13:52] <costyn> thx
[13:52] <Geoff-G8DHE> Yup PIE4 fading rapidly for me
[13:52] <daveake> did pava comeback on ?

[13:53] <S_Mark> is live gunna be on ukhas batc?
[13:53] <fsphil> got the chase car stream again
[13:53] <radim_OM2AMR> yes
[13:53] <daveake> yeah put it back on
[13:53] <mfa298> theres some chase car action on the ukhas batc feed

[13:55] <fsphil> no Pi stream yet
[13:55] <LazyL_M0LEP> PAVA a gonner from here.
[13:56] <LazyL_M0LEP> Last readable packet nearly ten minutes ago.
[13:56] <LazyL_M0LEP> Hope they've got good enough tracking on the ground to find it ;)
[13:57] <fsphil> good spot guys
[13:57] <costyn> thought the image had froze and you had just hit that bus
[13:57] <fsphil> lol

[13:58] <Geoff-G8DHE> Dave gone to watch the Heavens open
[13:58] <junderwood_M0JCU> too weak here
[13:59] <costyn> funny how AVA is coming back around, passing by for a look before heading east
[14:00] <mfa298> 50bd is so slow after watching PIE
[14:00] <fsphil> haha, isn't it
[14:00] <fsphil> oh no!
[14:00] <fsphil> it's landed
[14:00] <costyn> still no 3G
[14:01] <fsphil> daveake: it's on the ground
[14:01] <fsphil> right next to the Goods Hill road, B3353
[14:01] <costyn> next or on?
[14:01] <fsphil> just next to from the look of it
[14:01] <radim_OM2AMR> next to the road, for easy pick-up
[14:02] <mfa298> question will be whats the ground height there. chances are it went a little bit further
[14:02] <fsphil> guess it doesn't have GSM, no stream or data directly from it
[14:02] <costyn> my bet is it's on the other side :) as its still showing -5m/s descent... so that wasn't an update from when it was already on the ground?
[14:02] Action: mfa298 looks for an os map
[14:02] <fsphil> oh it's moved
[14:02] <fsphil> daveake: it's in the field on the left now
[14:03] <mfa298> its got a 3g update :D
[14:03] <mfa298> and theres a stream
[14:03] <costyn> w000t
[14:03] <fsphil> stream is live!
[14:03] <radim_OM2AMR> ooo stream from it !
[14:03] <costyn> coool

[14:03] <costyn> no pics in http://www.daveakerman.com/pi/ yet
[14:03] <fsphil> tardis is in a field
[14:03] <daveake> lol awesome
[14:03] <craag> That is v cool.
[14:03] <Chris_26CT895> That is so cool!
[14:03] <G8KNN-Jon> wow
[14:04] <costyn> very cool yea
[14:04] <daveake> lol
[14:04] <daveake> frikken awesome
[14:04] <fsphil> not so near the road :p
[14:05] <mfa298> next challenge is to have it streaming the payload being caught as it comes down.

[14:08] <recantha> Ooooo, and indeed, arrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
[14:08] <Maxell> daarnnnn kidsss!!!!
[14:09] <recantha> Wonder if they'll be able to find PAVA.
[14:09] <mfa298> now we just need the hat cam so we can watch the chase over the fields.
[14:09] <recantha> @mfa298 lol
[14:09] <costyn> recantha: should be a few minutes
[14:09] <fsphil> recantha: the plan is to float PAVA, it won't be coming back :)
[14:09] <craag> recantha: Pava is attached by string to pie :)
[14:09] <fsphil> oh wait
[14:09] <fsphil> PAVA / AVA
[14:09] <fsphil> I got mixed up
[14:09] <fsphil> AVA is floating
[14:09] <fsphil> PAVA should be in the field
[14:09] <recantha> Ahhh right.
[14:09] <fsphil> unless it fell off when the signal went
[14:10] Action: costyn still waiting for anthony's mug to appear behind the tardis
[14:10] <costyn> any bets who'll pick it up?
[14:10] <recantha> Wish I could get the live video at work. Very frustrating!
[14:10] <junderwood_M0JCU> AVA's ascent is slowing. Not sure whether it will slow down enough to float, though
[14:11] <costyn> recantha: it's not all that riveting, but the tehcnical challenges that had to dealt with to get this all working are what we're excited about
[14:11] <recantha> When you say "float" what do you actually mean? Float in the water?
[14:11] <fsphil> float in the air
[14:11] <costyn> recantha: means float at a certain altitude
[14:11] <fsphil> it will eventually stop ascending
[14:12] <costyn> recantha: instead of climbing or descending, it'll float :)
[14:12] <jonsowman> as in, maintain a constant altitude for an extended period of time
[14:12] <fsphil> what jonsowman said
[14:12] <fsphil> but pretend I said it
[14:12] <recantha> Oh, right. Had no idea you could do that! (Newbie alert!)
[14:12] <fsphil> I see people!
[14:12] <radim_OM2AMR> oo two strange persons there :-)
[14:12] <costyn> you can see them walking

[14:13] <recantha> ;)
[14:13] <costyn> jonsowman: this is terrible yes
[14:13] <fsphil> oooh those power lines really where near
[14:13] <NickB1> anybody got a screenshot of the stream ?
[14:13] <NickB1> firewall problems here ;)
[14:13] <costyn> fsphil: omg yes
[14:13] <fsphil> I may or may not have a video capture
[14:13] <fsphil> I'm not sure
[14:13] <gonzo__> I saw that yes
[14:13] <x-f> i saw PAVA
[14:14] <fsphil> I like that we're all guarding the chase car
[14:14] <recantha> Has someone picked it up and is walking with it?
[14:14] <mfa298> x-f: same, at least there was a quick flash of pink which I would assume is PAVA
[14:14] <costyn> recantha: yes
[14:14] <gonzo__> it moves. Must have missed the wiores. That was bloody close!

[14:51] <fsphil> 17:37 sunset time in london at ground level

[14:54] <fsphil> and still a strong signal
[14:54] <Randomskk> eroomde: around?
[14:55] <GMT> keep listening phil, it's heading away from you, so that range will be increasing
[14:55] <x-f> fsphil, how much above horizon it is for you?

[15:29] <NickB1> or does dl-fldigi do that automatically?
[15:29] <fsphil> you need to configure hamlib in dl-fldigi

[16:04] <fsphil> so I would consider 600 baud a success
[16:04] <daveake> Yes I think so
[16:04] <daveake> Worked just fine from the car though of course we weren't far away
[16:04] <daveake> Other than the lack of ftp upload (must be the script didn't get started, as I know it works) I think everything worked

[16:24] <fsphil> I love that someone 50 years ago came up with that idea. I mean, smaller on the inside. It's still a great sci-fi idea!
[16:25] <fsphil> er

[16:29] <fsphil> nice!
[16:30] <fsphil> you can also add a new 600 baud section
[16:30] <daveake> ah yes
[16:30] <fsphil> I wonder who got the most distant decode
[16:30] <daveake> Who got the furthest?
[16:31] <Elwell> eiciccclvrnhfnrgcelflkdvcucerbldldtjctfihckb

[16:31] <fsphil> F5APQ possibly

[16:32] <daveake> hah
[16:32] <fsphil> editing perl in emacs?
[16:32] <Elwell> yubikey - wrong window
[16:32] <LazyL_M0LEP> Only up to 305kms here. Think my best is over 500, so a way to go yet.
[16:32] <costyn> fsphil: i hear an echo :P
[16:32] <fsphil> you didn't say perl :p
[16:32] <costyn> true

[17:43] <OZ1SKY_Brian> jonsowman it just need to be over the horizon, then i can hear it, if the antenna on the payload is ok.
[17:43] <GMT> rightho, lost the signal ... just east of Cologne
[17:43] <priyesh> jonsowman: did CUSF track alpha below the horizon?
[17:43] <jonsowman> OZ1SKY_Brian: you must have a great antenna setup
[17:44] <jonsowman> priyesh: the trackotron hit -1 degree elev
[17:44] <priyesh> :D
[17:44] <arko> how amazing would it be if the payload arrived in the US.. :P
[17:44] <jonsowman> it would continue the trend of cool things happening accidentally
[17:44] <jonsowman> such as the trans-a last year?
[17:44] <OZ1SKY_Brian> jonsowman well just a comet gp-9 and a preamp
[17:44] <arko> jonsowman yeah

[17:45] <arko> check it out
[17:45] <arko> i have my station setup in los angeles
[17:45] <arko> im ready for it now
[17:45] <PE2G> Freq starts to drift downwards
[17:45] <daveake> Yeah - getting dark up there now

[17:53] <PE2G> Distorted signal during a couple of secs, then gone
[17:53] <x-f> :/
[17:53] <arko> how long can the battery last?
[17:54] <craag> Yeah NTX2 properly tailed off as if it lost Vcc.
[17:54] <LazyL_M0LEP> It just stopped. $$AVA,2777,17:51:09,uX-9

[17:54] <PE7ER> prolly FLAG got it!
[17:54] <Randomskk> haha that doesn't sound good
[17:54] <craag> But it's an rfm22 I think. So could be reset in a bit.
[17:54] <PE7ER> (never mention the war, i forgot)
[17:54] <LazyL_M0LEP> Yeah, 2776 was garbled at the end. 2775 was 543.4kms from here.
[17:55] <x-f> arko, it should have lasted another 40 hours

[18:12] <craag> Gone now, was 434.4506
[18:13] <craag> I'll try to screenshot it if it comes back. It wasn't rtty but I've seen my rfm do similar things when it gets into a weird mode.

[19:52] <radim_OM2AMR> Lunar_Lander, maybe one note - try to keep that RG174 cable as short as possible
[19:52] <Lunar_Lander> the black one?
[19:52] <Lunar_Lander> ah it isn't too long actually
[19:52] <radim_OM2AMR> yes, from NTX to antenna
[19:52] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[19:55] <Lunar_Lander> the cable ties were an idea of our lab tech
[19:55] <Lunar_Lander> as he and I were not confident about the soldering spots on the cables
[19:55] <Lunar_Lander> they were always prone to break
[19:55] <Lunar_Lander> so that is better actually
[19:55] <radim_OM2AMR> sure, it's good idea
[19:56] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[19:56] <Lunar_Lander> btw website https://oernen2balloon.wordpress.com/
[19:56] <Lunar_Lander> :)
[19:56] <radim_OM2AMR> another advice - be careful in soldering that black coax cable. When you solder shield, it can melt core insulation
[19:57] <HixPad> Heh you got the Wordpress thing sorted Lunar_Lander
[19:57] <Lunar_Lander> well not really
[19:57] <Lunar_Lander> it is a blog on wordpress' own site
[19:57] <Lunar_Lander> radim_OM2AMR, yea
[19:58] <Lunar_Lander> I looked after that
[19:58] <Lunar_Lander> there is no short circuit
[19:58] <HixPad> That one I set up is still there if you need the host space Lunar_Lander
[19:58] <Lunar_Lander> that is good

[19:59] <Lunar_Lander> yea I have to read into that
[19:59] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[19:59] <Lunar_Lander> let's wait until after the flight happens hopefully successful :)
[20:00] <HixPad> Sure, Gute flug
[20:00] <HixPad> I'm ramping up for a flight soon too :D
[20:00] <Lunar_Lander> thanks :)
[20:00] <Lunar_Lander> cool!
[20:01] <NickB1> looks good lunar
[20:01] <HixPad> There seem to be loads at the moment. HAB is gonna need its own ATC soon :)
[20:01] <NickB1> the only that I wouldnt trust is a switch
[20:02] <Lunar_Lander> hey NickB1
[20:02] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[20:02] <Lunar_Lander> it's too late to desolder it or so
[20:03] <Lunar_Lander> what about arresting it at ON with hot glue or so?

[20:03] <NickB1> you can always bridge it
[20:04] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[20:04] <NickB1> so it starts when you connect the battery

[20:04] <NickB1> one less thing that can brake
[20:06] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[20:06] <Lunar_Lander> problem is that the arduino is soldered below
[20:06] <mclane> how did you connect the radiator wire to the BNC Lunar?
[20:06] <Lunar_Lander> so to change the wiring I have to first disconnect it
[20:06] <Lunar_Lander> you mean the NTX2 pins to the coax?
[20:06] <Lunar_Lander> I soldered the core to the RF pin and the hull to the RF GND pin
[20:06] <mclane> no, I mean the yellow wire on your antenna picture
[20:06] <Lunar_Lander> ah
[20:07] <Lunar_Lander> I put the wire into the hole in the middle of the BNC and applied solder so that ran into the hole and made contact
[20:08] <mclane> ah ok. Consider SMA connectors for your next design; they are smaller and have much better RF performance
[20:08] <Lunar_Lander> yea

[20:09] <Lunar_Lander> the next board will be a one level design

[20:09] <Lunar_Lander> thanks
[20:09] <costyn> Lunar_Lander: I have 2 jumpers
[20:09] <costyn> Lunar_Lander: err
[20:09] <HixPad> Costyn are you expecting cold weather ;)
[20:09] <costyn> Lunar_Lander: I have 2 header pins sticking up which I bridge with a jumper when I want to turn on my payload
[20:10] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[20:10] <costyn> with thanks to daveake
[20:10] <radim_OM2AMR> I don't know how DFS is working, slovak ATC could postpone your flight slightly, so we are filling balloon after final ack from ATC
[20:10] <Lunar_Lander> ah
[20:10] <Lunar_Lander> we got one hour
[20:10] <Lunar_Lander> from the DFS
[20:11] <radim_OM2AMR> we have to call one hour before flight, then few minutes before flight again - that's final ack from them
[20:11] <costyn> radim_OM2AMR: bah :(
[20:12] <Lunar_Lander> ah
[20:12] <costyn> I can send mine up where I want when I want as long as it's further than 3km from an airport
[20:12] <radim_OM2AMR> they could say - wait 30 minutes& so that's the reason we inflating after second call
[20:13] <radim_OM2AMR> costyn, without CAA permit ?
[20:13] <HixPad> Good old Dutch leniency
[20:13] <costyn> radim_OM2AMR: indeed
[20:14] <radim_OM2AMR> we obtained 2 hours launch window, when you will miss that window, you are not permited to fly - it is experience of other SK team
[20:14] <costyn> radim_OM2AMR: there are limits to balloon and payload size, but for our hobby hab purposes those are easy to stay within

[20:19] <radim_OM2AMR> so back to theme :-) It looks, that the easiest HAB-bing is in Netherland, hardest in Czech (from laws point of view)
[20:21] <Lunar_Lander> romania and hungary seem to be restrictive too
[20:22] <HixPad> Bye costyn

[20:38] <Lunar_Lander> x-f, Estonia has Skype and so on
[20:39] <Lunar_Lander> they might be more into tech :)
[20:39] <Upu> it detects faults with RFM22B number10_M0MDB and reboots as needed
[20:39] <daveake> evening Upu
[20:39] Action: fsphil suspects a photoshop job one one of these pics :)
[20:39] <daveake> Journey OK?
[20:39] <Upu> but thanks everyone for tracking and sorry it didn't make it
[20:39] <daveake> On one yes :)
[20:39] <Upu> yeah quite quick actually
[20:39] <HixPad> Hey Upu bummer about losing signal
[20:39] <fsphil> the rfm22b probably thinks it is fine
[20:40] <lz1dev> Upu: could it be frozen ?
[20:40] <Upu> very likely
[20:40] <Upu> the RFm22B
[20:40] <fsphil> they probably need to be reset every few minutes regardless
[20:40] <Upu> bet the GPS and AVR are working
[20:40] <Upu> I'll put that in the code
[20:41] <OZ1SKY_Brian> super, tak
[20:41] <HixPad> What is predicted Posn for sunrise?
[20:41] <Upu> trouble is its going to be in Kazakhstan by sun rise
[20:41] <HixPad> Yagshemash
[20:41] <Upu> it was doing 100 mph ?
[20:41] <jonsowman> what happened to ava?
[20:41] <Upu> Looks like the RFM22B sucumbed to the cold
[20:41] <jonsowman> ah
[20:41] <jonsowman> :9
[20:41] <jonsowman> * :(
[20:41] <Upu> it died when the sun went down
[20:41] <daveake> I reported a "LL" prefix then it died ...
[20:42] <jonsowman> had a very good run though
[20:42] <Upu> which was a bummer as that was going to Poland easily
[20:42] <jonsowman> speedy as
[20:42] <Lunar_Lander> daveake, ohhhhh
[20:42] <Upu> yeah the predictions didn't have that speed
[20:42] <fsphil> I measured 160km/h at one point
[20:42] <Upu> however no data for that altitude I suspect
[20:42] <jonsowman> yeah
[20:42] <lz1dev> GFS doesnt cover that altitude
[20:43] <Upu> but great test of the geofencing
[20:43] <Upu> apart from not knowing it was still in the UK it seemed to work
[20:44] <fsphil> it was a very nice float
[20:44] <fsphil> just eased right into it
[20:44] <Upu> yeah
[20:44] <Upu> 2m/s
[20:44] <Upu> 360g neck lift / 60g payload
[20:45] <lz1dev> what balloon ?
[20:45] <HixPad> How many minus stirks?
[20:45] <Upu> Hwoyee 1600

[20:45] <lz1dev> aahh!!
[20:45] <lz1dev> the cat sabotaged it
[20:45] <Upu> don't generate much heat thats the issue

[21:05] <Upu> Elwell you can get away with just an AZ rotator
[21:05] <SpeedEvil> the easy way is a couple of servos, and a couple of servo testers

[21:56] <Elwell> lemme guess, they built a windscreen with a dashcam?
[21:56] <Upu> yeah suspect the RFM has frozen
[21:56] <Upu> it does have some recovery in there for the RFM
[21:56] <Upu> but unless the RFM knows its not working it won't work
[21:57] <Upu> I should put a reset in every 50 telemetry lines
[21:57] <Lunar_Lander> Geoff-G8DHE, yea I heard that they launched without any authorization?
[21:57] <SP9UOB> Upu: in my code reinit is every 90 seconds

[21:58] <Upu> unlikely to burst before dawn
[21:58] <Lunar_Lander> btw Upu we dug up some of that isolation foam for walls
[21:58] <Lunar_Lander> good idea to put some around the NTX2?
[21:58] <Upu> can do Lunar_Lander

[22:58] <jcoxon> i can retune
[22:58] <mattbrejza> ok thanks
[22:58] <jcoxon> is 434.300 good for people?
[22:59] <mattbrejza> ive gone and pushed the board into the box and soldered the antenna to it
[22:59] <mattbrejza> so it will probably be a pain
[22:59] <mattbrejza> having said that predictions are getting worse :(
[22:59] <fsphil> anything above 434.100 is probably fine
[23:00] <mattbrejza> .250 is being used potentially too
[23:00] <mattbrejza> sharp is 650 & 869 MHz
[23:00] <mattbrejza> i think tahts all
[23:00] <fsphil> ooh 869, finally

[23:02] <fsphil> 100khz apart, should be within the range of the fcdp+

[23:15] <fsphil> on 2m?
[23:15] <jcoxon> yeah
[23:16] <jcoxon> so Upu's board is pico sized...
[23:16] <fsphil> if there's a 70cm module on there too
[23:16] <jcoxon> yeah its 2 boards that go together
[23:16] <jcoxon> i was just going to fly the 70cm
[23:16] <jcoxon> and not the aprs daughter board
[23:17] <fsphil> foils are tricky things to float, might not be worth sending the aprs
[23:17] <lz1dev> is there aprs coverage in sweden ?
[23:17] <jcoxon> lz1dev, i think so
[23:18] <jcoxon> fsphil, yeah i was thinking that too
[23:18] <jcoxon> but then this flight path would allow for potentially easy recovery
[23:19] <lz1dev> jcoxon: there seems to be
[23:19] <jcoxon> and the aprs could work once landed
[23:19] <fsphil> there is that too
[23:20] <lz1dev> but once you reach Latvia, Belarus or Ukraine, there is no covarage
[23:20] <fsphil> yea good idea, it should be floating long before it leaves dry land
[23:21] <fsphil> well there's the bristol channel
[23:21] <fsphil> and tha little excursion out over the english channel
[23:22] <Randomskk> did we all se ethe inspiration mars stuff & feasibility study?
[23:22] <fsphil> only heard a few comments about it, nothing direct
[23:23] <lz1dev> link ? :)
[23:23] <Randomskk> russss linked to the feasibility study: http://www.inspirationmars.com/Inspiration%20Mars_Feasibility%20Analysis_IEEE.pdf
[23:23] <fsphil> those comments where basically along the lines of, you can't possibly calculate the risk before any of the hardware is developed
[23:23] <Randomskk> basically the plan is to do a free return to mars in 2018
[23:23] <Randomskk> with two people
[23:23] <Randomskk> the press release was like "sex! in space!"
[23:23] <fsphil> urg
[23:23] <Randomskk> the feasibility study is like "we can save space by not having clothing. or food. or toilet paper."
[23:23] <russss> heh
[23:24] <Randomskk> but also like "we reckon about 7m³ should be enough free space"
[23:24] <g7ogxchris> lots of APRS activity in Sweden

[23:25] <g7ogxchris> they reckon technical ability is available for Mars now
[23:25] <Randomskk> on a free return it's fairly easy to send something there and back
[23:25] <Randomskk> having two people onboard would tend to complicate it
[23:25] <fsphil> I think it would be much easier to do a free return to Venus
[23:25] <fsphil> certainly quicker
[23:25] <Randomskk> not as cool though is it
[23:26] <fsphil> still another planet!
[23:26] <Elwell> wow. aprs coverage really does vanish once yoy get to lithuania
