[05:08] <arko> hello people
[05:17] <nigelvh> Hello arko
[05:17] <arko> how goes it
[05:18] <nigelvh> Doing alright. Got some boards in today, and fiddling with it now.
[05:19] <nigelvh> You?
[05:19] <arko> nice!
[05:19] <arko> sitting here jealous
[05:19] <arko> im studying for a midterm tomorrow
[05:19] <nigelvh> Not tracker boards, but interesting none-the-less.
[05:19] <arko> neta
[05:19] <arko> neat*
[05:19] <nigelvh> I'm not jealous of your midterm studying
[05:20] <arko> :P
[05:22] <nigelvh> Hopefully, if my testing continues well, these boards (with parts) will become kits available for sale, but that's another step.
[05:22] <arko> what is it?
[05:23] <nigelvh> I'm making a battery analyzer kit. Discharges batteries and gives you a Ah capacity at a current load, plus a discharge curve of the battery.
[05:25] <arko> neat
[05:25] <arko> usb?
[05:25] <nigelvh> Yeah, it's got a usb connection
[05:25] <arko> sweet
[05:26] <arko> generate some csv reports :)
[05:26] <nigelvh> Yep
[05:26] <nigelvh> Plus a chart
[05:26] <arko> heh, damn i love data
[05:26] <arko> and excel
[05:26] <arko> and matlab
[05:26] <nigelvh> I've got CSV working presently. Working on the chart drawing.
[05:26] <arko> this list gets big
[05:26] <arko> nice
[05:26] <arko> i'd buy one
[05:27] <nigelvh> This is NOT my site: http://www.westmountainradio.com/cba.php but that's the idea of what I'm doing. Though mine can't discharge at 150W.
[05:28] <nigelvh> But they're selling for 160, and I'm aiming at 65
[05:28] <arko> nice
[05:28] <arko> sounds much more reasonable
[05:28] <arko> if it can do my lipo batteries for my rc/uav stuff
[05:28] <nigelvh> Plus it's arduino based, so you can fiddle if you like.
[05:28] <arko> that would be perfect
[05:28] <arko> nice
[05:29] <nigelvh> Yeah, anything from 0-50V
[05:29] <nigelvh> Right now I'm looking at something like 10W discharge (seeing as my heatsink is much smaller and doesn't have a fan)
[05:31] <arko> hmm
[05:31] <nigelvh> Which to be honest, I'd like more out of it, so I may re-jigger that portion
[05:34] <nigelvh> Problem is that getting heatsinks and fans to accomodate gets to be more expensive.
[05:34] <arko> yeah i bet
[05:35] <arko> scaling too
[05:35] <arko> getting lots of them
[05:35] <arko> trick is to find some part that is still being made and is available cheap at large qty's
[05:35] <arko> prototypes are easy, manufacturing and selling is a pain
[05:35] <nigelvh> Well, scaling is presently not much of an issue, seeing as I'm just starting this website/business, so there's not a lot of demand (read zero) so far.
[05:36] <arko> haha
[05:36] <arko> true
[05:36] <nigelvh> Anyway, the overall idea is to sell a variety of kits that do stuff.
[05:36] <nigelvh> This battery analyzer will be one of them.
[05:36] <arko> cool
[05:37] <nigelvh> A friend of mine is considering doing a plasma speaker kit
[05:37] <nigelvh> I'm thinking I'll do an arduino ICSP programmer kit
[05:37] <nigelvh> Random stuff.
[05:38] <arko> heh we sell one
[05:38] <arko> at least
[05:38] <arko> our hackerspace does
[05:38] <arko> http://www.nullspacelabs.com/
[05:38] <arko> oops
[05:38] <arko> look like they are out of stock
[05:38] <arko> http://wiki.032.la/nsl/AVR_Programmer
[05:39] <nigelvh> Yeah, something along those lines.
[05:40] <nigelvh> So far I've been tending towards mostly thru hole stuff to make the kits easier to build, but I'm sure some of them will include surface mount stuff.
[05:40] <arko> smd is great
[05:41] <arko> i find it easier than throughhole
[05:41] <nigelvh> For you or I, but not for everyone.
[05:41] <arko> all about the right tools
[05:41] <nigelvh> Not everyone has those.
[05:41] <arko> yeah
[05:41] <arko> ok
[05:41] <arko> back to studying
[05:42] <nigelvh> Have fuN!

[06:17] <arko> yeah
[06:18] <nigelvh> So how is being armenian the same as not being in LA?
[06:18] <arko> oh
[06:18] <arko> huge armenian population in Glendale

[06:18] <arko> so lots of people know about the country
[06:18] <nigelvh> I see
[06:18] <arko> and the food

[07:30] <eroomde> but you could replace it with an fpga one, or ever just arm cortex something or other, to take advantage of the adc which will do 200ksps simultaneous sampling on 8 channels at 16bits
[07:30] <arko> wow
[07:30] <eroomde> so will end up as a nice datalogging box with 32 pressure channels
[07:30] <arko> holy data batman
[07:31] <arko> whats the sample rate required?
[07:31] <arko> what the required sample rate*
[07:31] <eroomde> and a fancy black anodised front plate nice connectors and our logo in white-filled engraving
[07:31] <eroomde> 2khz will be fine
[07:31] <eroomde> 1khz will probably be fine tbh
[07:32] <eroomde> enough to spot any instabilities in the flow
[07:32] <eroomde> for this application we're building it for, that is
[07:32] <eroomde> but nice to have the option to go audio for other things
[07:32] <eroomde> eg.... a microphone array
[07:32] <arko> ah
[07:32] <nigelvh> Fancy
[07:32] <eroomde> for v high resolution steerable mic arrays
[07:32] <eroomde> which is my secret plan
[07:32] <arko> haha
[07:33] <arko> will this be purely for logging will it feedback control or E-stop?
[07:33] <eroomde> logging for this app that is sponsoring it
[07:33] <arko> coolio
[07:33] <arko> sounds like a fun bit of work ahead of you
[07:34] <eroomde> along with all the usual thinbgs like injector and chamber and nozzle pressures and temperatures, and mass flows, you'll be able to see how well this nozzle is performing
[07:34] <eroomde> http://www.reactionengines.co.uk/images_news/news_july2011/hot-fire-2_800.jpg
[07:34] <eroomde> see all the pressure taps coming off the top?
[07:34] <eroomde> it's doing that
[07:35] <arko> oh yeah
[07:35] <arko> i remember you telling me about this
[07:35] <arko> copper acts as a heat sink
[07:35] <eroomde> yes
[07:35] <arko> it boggles my mind that those pressure tubes just tap in directly
[07:36] <nigelvh> What do you need it to sink heat for?
[07:36] <arko> fire yo
[07:36] <nigelvh> I'm aware of the fire, but other metals can handle fire too.
[07:36] <eroomde> when you want to test some aspect of a new engine, like stability, or really anything, it's much cheaper and easier to make it out of very heavy, thick copper
[07:36] <eroomde> and fire it for a very short time (a second or two)
[07:37] <eroomde> rather than try and engineer a whole cooling system which adds a lot of time an expense when you just want to collect some data
[07:37] <nigelvh> That makes sense, I thought copper would not be a great long term option.
[07:37] <eroomde> so we build them out of copper which has the conductivity, and thick copper for total heat capacity, to endure short firings without any active cooling
[07:37] <arko> much easier to model too
[07:37] <arko> hah
[07:38] <eroomde> then leave it to cool for 45 minutes or so
[07:38] <eroomde> then fire again
[07:38] <eroomde> yeop, much easier
[07:38] <nigelvh> Yes, don't touch
[07:38] <arko> haha
[07:38] <eroomde> you can embed thermocouples along the length and so on
[07:38] <arko> FLIR that
[07:38] <arko> :P
[07:38] <eroomde> because we're using gaseous propellents aswell, 2s is plenty - you've got equilibrium conditions in about 100ms
[07:38] <eroomde> no long startup times
[07:38] <arko> i dream of flir ir camsall day
[07:39] <eroomde> we had a nice one for our blimp project
[07:39] <eroomde> ethernet, 15fps, calibrated and very sensitive
[07:39] <eroomde> if someone typed their password on their keyboard, you could see which keys they pressed for several seconds after they took their hands away
[07:40] <arko> woah
[07:40] <arko> makes sense

[07:40] <nigelvh> I recall that being in one of those movies about using the constitution to find a secret treasure.

[11:37] <daveake> erm no seems ok

[11:37] <navrac_work> 434.073 - sorry was afk

[11:37] <daveake> yep me too :)
[11:38] <x-f> fsphil, yes, it was a test, sorry for interrupting LL's flight, but CAA requested a demonstration :/
[11:38] <fsphil> no worries :) just curious
[11:39] <nosebleedkt> its falling or its my idea?
[11:39] <nosebleedkt> only 22km?

[17:20] <DrLuke> I've tried the whole UV thing

[18:49] <cuddykid> thanks Upu :)

[18:54] <cuddykid> excellent
[18:54] <cuddykid> thought that's probably one of the cheaper components :P

[18:56] <cuddykid> woo!
[18:56] <cuddykid> yeah - I need to get myself one of those
[18:58] <fsphil> they are lovely stuffs
[18:58] <daveake> indeedy
[18:59] <daveake> A most logical purchase
[18:59] <costyn> also on my wishlist :)

[19:11] Willdude123_ (51b2ba02@wikipedia/W-D) joined #highaltitude.
[19:11] <jonsowman> a scope is great, but for debugging SPI for example, a LA is so much better
[19:11] G8KNN-Jon (~Jon@ joined #highaltitude.
[19:11] <HixPad> Are they involved to use?
[19:11] <jonsowman> not at all
[19:11] <jonsowman> it's free
[19:11] <fsphil> most of the work is just putting on the probes
[19:12] <mclane> does it work in Linux (e.g. using wine)?
[19:12] <HixPad> Hmm ok, for that kind of money it's worth having in the kitbox
[19:12] <fsphil> there's a native linux binary
[19:12] <Elwell> more useful than say a dso nano?
[19:12] <jonsowman> windows, os x and windows
[19:12] <fsphil> which works perfectly in fedora
[19:12] <HixPad> Heh
[19:12] <jonsowman> Elwell: well, scopes and LAs are for different things really, so they're not directly comparable
[19:13] <mclane> ok, I will get one (14$ is under the waf limit)
[19:13] <Elwell> yeah, dropping hints to colleges about a leaving present...
[19:13] <HixPad> I'd like a scope but only because it would make funky shapes I didn't understand
[19:13] <fsphil> haha
[19:13] <daveake> I'd say, for typical micro debugging stuff, it's more useful than a scope
[19:13] <jonsowman> a DSO is on my to-buy list
[19:13] <fsphil> I've a rigol, it's great
[19:13] <daveake> me too
[19:13] <HixPad> And it'd annoy here if I played with it in soap time
[19:14] <jonsowman> mainly because I have access to a scope in the CUSF lab
[19:14] <jonsowman> but they are great
[19:14] <daveake> I have an Owon but it doesn't get used nearly as much
[19:14] <HixPad> There is normally a scope where I work as a general rule
[19:17] <daveake> I work at home; if I don't have it I don't have it
[19:17] <fsphil> I only do software at work, don't get to play with nice gadgets :)

[19:21] <Lunar_Lander> I told you! :D
[19:21] <Lunar_Lander> thanks :D
[19:22] <HixPad> You've been anticipated for most of today
[19:22] <Lunar_Lander> yeah I can imagine
[19:22] <costyn> Lunar_Lander: congrats are in order, yes?
[19:22] <HixPad> Have a look in the logs :)
[19:22] <Lunar_Lander> yeah thank yiu

[19:23] <nosebleedkt> I brought him back
[19:23] <Lunar_Lander> yea :)
[19:23] <HixPad> Though I think you should now be LEM
[19:23] <fsphil> so obvious question Lunar_Lander -- how near was it to that river?

[19:25] <mclane> ok, we are expecting a full report ;-)
[19:25] <Lunar_Lander> yeah
[19:25] <Lunar_Lander> I just checked spacenear
[19:25] <Lunar_Lander> well
[19:25] <HixPad> Within the next 5 mins
[19:25] <Lunar_Lander> we began at 8 am here
[19:25] <Lunar_Lander> and finished the final things to do
[19:25] <Lunar_Lander> including hot gluing on the GPS cap and the battery leads
[19:25] <Lunar_Lander> then the payload didn't turn on
[19:25] <Lunar_Lander> and that seemed to have been because the battery holder had deformed a bit
[19:25] <Lunar_Lander> but we repaired that
[19:26] <Lunar_Lander> and then we tied the payload together and finished a thermal control tube for the temperature sensor
[19:26] <Lunar_Lander> just the cardboard from a toilet roll covered in aluminum foil
[19:26] <Lunar_Lander> then we took that to the roof and let it initialize
[19:26] <Lunar_Lander> spread out the balloon and filled it
[19:27] <Lunar_Lander> until it lifted a bottle of sparkling wine that we found to be a bit heavier even than the calculated neck lift
[19:28] <Lunar_Lander> tied it up according to the instructions, wrapped it with duct tape and then let the balloon rise up and released
[19:28] <Lunar_Lander> finally
[19:28] <Lunar_Lander> five minutes before the end of the notam window
[19:29] <nosebleedkt> .
[19:29] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[19:29] <Lunar_Lander> will continue in a few moments
[19:29] <number10> yea take a breath
[19:29] <costyn> heh
[19:29] <lz1dev> drink some water
[19:29] <nosebleedkt> Lunar_Lander, i posted info about your launch in my fb page so people expect some images @
[19:30] <mclane> yea!
[19:30] <Lunar_Lander> yea one moment
[19:30] <HixPad> Drink some koelsch
[19:30] <nosebleedkt> so tell us where it landed and then dropp da f@@ images !

[19:31] <Lunar_Lander> xD
[19:31] <HixPad> Yeah Lunar_Lander got lat lon for THE spot?
[19:32] <Lunar_Lander> we drove after it and immediately found it
[19:32] <craag> Elwell: Because it looks cool to non-tech people.
[19:32] <Lunar_Lander> in the river Weser
[19:32] <craag> *in* the river??

[19:32] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[19:33] <Lunar_Lander> the people working there were really helpful
[19:33] <nosebleedkt> I want picture from the river
[19:33] <costyn> gawd
[19:33] <Lunar_Lander> they went after it with their boat and got it for us
[19:33] <Lunar_Lander> after that two hams turned up and talked with us as they tracked as well
[19:33] <nosebleedkt> lol whole german ground and it fell on the tiny river
[19:33] <costyn> nosebleedkt: haha
[19:34] <chrisstubbs> congrats Lunar_Lander :)
[19:34] <Lunar_Lander> thanks xD
[19:34] <lz1dev> Elwell: mac keyboard, dell mouse toshiba laptop
[19:34] <fsphil> congrats indeed, and what a recovery
[19:34] <lz1dev> wat
[19:34] <Lunar_Lander> uploading
[19:34] <fsphil> we where all worried it might have landed in the river
[19:35] <nosebleedkt> yes, Lunar_Lander, i was supposed to work in my office today, instead i was watching a balloon
[19:35] <fsphil> lol
[19:35] <fsphil> yea here too
[19:35] <Lunar_Lander> xD
[19:35] <HixPad> From sat images the river looked pretty turbulent around there
[19:35] <Lunar_Lander> ah there is some sort of barrage
[19:36] <fsphil> the landing prediction went from a lake, trees to a river
[19:36] <HixPad> Weird formations on banks

[19:36] <nosebleedkt> Lunar_Lander, next time, please don't use cutdown at 22km. PLZ
[19:36] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[19:36] <fsphil> smoooooth
[19:36] <Lunar_Lander> I'll set it above 100000 ft ;)
[19:36] <HixPad> Seconded
[19:36] <fsphil> yay, straw
[19:36] <nosebleedkt> clean image
[19:37] <nosebleedkt> clean cold atmosphere

[19:37] <lz1dev> Lunar_Lander: and please have a value for cutdown next time
[19:37] <Lunar_Lander> ah, yea
[19:37] <Lunar_Lander> missed that, sorry
[19:38] <nosebleedkt> Lunar_Lander,
[19:38] <nosebleedkt> send us a picture before burst
[19:38] <HixPad> Them dams got smaller after 617 San ;p
[19:38] <HixPad> Sqn
[19:38] <nosebleedkt> did you have cold german clouds below ?
[19:38] <fsphil> looked like a really nice day
[19:38] <nosebleedkt> ye!
[19:39] <costyn> was really nice weather here in NL
[19:39] <nosebleedkt> i hope that he took a clear ground pics
[19:39] <Lunar_Lander> yeah no clouds
[19:39] <Lunar_Lander> one moment
[19:39] <costyn> monday and tuesday would've been 10x better launch days for us than saturday :(
[19:39] <Lunar_Lander> I just uploaded the first airborne photo
[19:39] <Lunar_Lander> and then I will do the highest altitude one
[19:39] <nosebleedkt> Lunar_Lander, you are slow man, my heartbeat is increasing any time you type and it's not a link

[19:40] <x-f> congrats, Lunar_Lander, glad it all went well!
[19:40] <fsphil> it all seems to have been perfect, apart from the splashy landing
[19:41] <nosebleedkt> Lunar_Lander, is your upload connection low? or you are ? :p
[19:41] <HixPad> Definitive proof that flights like a wash after
[19:41] <nosebleedkt> slow*
[19:41] <fsphil> calm down nosebleedkt :)
[19:41] <x-f> at least it was fished out for them
[19:41] <Lunar_Lander> no I have to search

[19:42] <nosebleedkt> fsphil, I can't. heartbeat in up
[19:42] <Lunar_Lander> I pressed that button with the flower and the mountains
[19:42] <Lunar_Lander> and set it to "mountain mode" and it said "infinity"
[19:42] <nosebleedkt> Troll question: did you expect flowers on 22km?
[19:42] <nosebleedkt> hohohoh
[19:42] <nosebleedkt> :)
[19:42] <HixPad> Heh
[19:43] <nosebleedkt> Lunar_Lander, do you know that someone paid me money today and i was looking at your balloon?
[19:44] <Lunar_Lander> yea you told me
[19:44] Action: HixPad might possibly be guilty of that too.
[19:44] <fsphil> I do the landscape mode

[19:44] <chrisstubbs> ooo very nice :)
[19:44] <Lunar_Lander> unfortunately that is the highest altitude photo
[19:45] <fsphil> so, important question. did you enjoy it?
[19:45] <HixPad> What's the straw thing then, I missed something
[19:46] <nosebleedkt> :D
[19:47] <Lunar_Lander> that is one of the radials
[19:47] <Lunar_Lander> the ground plane
[19:47] <Lunar_Lander> fsphil, yes
[19:47] <Lunar_Lander> it was exciting and I really enjoyed it
[19:47] <HixPad> Ahh, in view of cam on purpose?
[19:47] <Lunar_Lander> no
[19:48] <Lunar_Lander> by accident more or less
[19:48] <HixPad> Ahhhh :P
[19:48] <HixPad> Heh
[19:48] <nosebleedkt> I think camera is focused on that thing.
[19:48] <nosebleedkt> and made the background blur
[19:48] <nosebleedkt> like on portaitrs
[19:49] <nosebleedkt> Kevin, all pictures are focused on that white thing?
[19:49] <costyn> excellent bokeh!
[19:49] <HixPad> Af not disabled Lunar_Lander ?
[19:49] <fsphil> I found the canon a560 often gets the focus wrong even when there isn't something nearby

[19:49] <Lunar_Lander> nosebleedkt, no, I just upload a picture from the beginning of the descent that is not focused on the straw
[19:49] <HixPad> Chdk would sort that no?
[19:50] <Lunar_Lander> HixPad, I just set the thing to "infinity"
[19:50] <Lunar_Lander> oh ok

[19:55] <Lunar_Lander> can you see the black line and the gap next to the straw?
[19:56] <Lunar_Lander> I just checked the GPS coordinates for that time
[19:56] <Lunar_Lander> it seems to be Porta Westfalica

[20:04] <HixPad> Heh
[20:04] <Majed> going to launch my second hab
[20:04] <Majed> just bought 2 Hero 3 cameras
[20:05] <Majed> hihgly excited
[20:05] <HixPad> Ouch, cutdown then ;)
[20:05] <eroomde> Majed: wow
[20:05] <eroomde> that's a hunk of change!
[20:05] <HixPad> For 3D?
[20:06] <Majed> 3D, not realy the idea but good one tho
[20:06] <craag> I'm not sure my eyes could tell distance at 30km up, even with 3D.
[20:06] <HixPad> Gotta be done if you have 2 of them babies, surely a first...
[20:07] <Majed> i now have 2 Hero2 and 2 Hero3
[20:07] <Majed> can do alot with them
[20:07] <Majed> lol
[20:07] <HixPad> Jayzus
[20:07] <daveake> Eyes (and those cameras) will be too close together to get a stereoscopic effect of the ground
[20:07] <eroomde> do you know what the recording time is for high speed video on the 3?
[20:07] <Majed> i know
[20:08] <Majed> have you guys seen my last hab video?
[20:08] <eroomde> not to my knowledge
[20:08] <eroomde> link us up!
[20:08] <HixPad> External power it's the future
[20:08] <eroomde> i've tasted it

[20:50] <fsphil> oh, you've improved it chrisstubbs
[20:51] <chrisstubbs> had to tweak the bandwith
[20:51] <chrisstubbs> are the two lines supposed to blur into a great yellow blob on the waterfall at 600 baud?

[20:56] <mclane> fsphil: question with regards to ssdv: if I receive a bad packet all the rest of the packets are bad too
[20:56] <mclane> any idea why?
[20:57] <fsphil> bad in what way?
[20:58] <mclane> bad: ssdv_dec_is_packet != 0
[20:58] <Lunar_Lander> hey OZ1SKY_Brian !
[20:59] <fsphil> mclane: are you using a sliding window?
[20:59] <OZ1SKY_Brian> hi Lunar_Lander, congrats on your flight
[20:59] <mclane> what means sliding window? - I am using the routines from ssdv-master
[21:00] <Lunar_Lander> thanks OZ1SKY_Brian
[21:00] <Lunar_Lander> we had a splashdown in the end
[21:00] <stilldavid> Lunar_Lander: did you get photos of the recovery?
[21:00] <OZ1SKY_Brian> in the river?
[21:00] <fsphil> mclane: the ssdv program expects the packets to be aligned in the file, starting at each 256th byte. this might not be true when receiving from radio
[21:01] <Lunar_Lander> no, sorry just the onboard cam
[21:01] <fsphil> *packet starting at each 256th byte
[21:01] <Lunar_Lander> i.e. you can see someone pulling the payload from the water
[21:01] <Lunar_Lander> OZ1SKY_Brian, yes
[21:01] <fsphil> ideally what you want is to test starting at each byte (bytes 0-255), then if that fails test from the next byte (1-256)
[21:01] <OZ1SKY_Brian> oh ok, i did note there was a river close to your landing spot
[21:01] <Lunar_Lander> yeah
[21:01] <Lunar_Lander> OZ1SKY_Brian, http://s.gullipics.com/image/q/b/8/5yverr-kmotja-sobe/IMG8097.jpeg
[21:02] <OZ1SKY_Brian> very nice
[21:03] <OZ1SKY_Brian> when you got close to 23000 and the CD was still on, i got abit worryed
[21:03] <mclane> fsphil: so if I loose one byte I will try to get back in sync that way?
[21:03] <Lunar_Lander> yeah me too
[21:04] <fsphil> mclane: yes, basically test the last 256 bytes for a packet after each byte is received
[21:04] <fsphil> until the decoder says it found one
[21:04] <fsphil> this is how it works in dl-fldigi
[21:04] <fsphil> and I should probably make the ssdv command line app do the same thing
[21:05] Geoff-G8DHE (5d61a0c6@gateway/web/freenode/ip. joined #highaltitude.
[21:05] <mclane> ok, I will have a look into the source code of dl-fldigi to get some inspiration
[21:06] <craag> hehe congrats daveake on the pi camera!

[21:08] <daveake> I knew it was coming but I didn't know about the competition thing

[21:08] <daveake> Oh dear yeah :p
[21:09] <Lunar_Lander> xD
[21:09] <Lunar_Lander> btw how many screens are there now in your office :)?
[21:10] <Lunar_Lander> because I am now at 2
[21:10] <Lunar_Lander> :)
[21:10] <fsphil> ah man, you've more than em
[21:10] <fsphil> me*
[21:11] <fsphil> Lunar_Lander: you realise you have a 100% recovery rate now
[21:11] <Lunar_Lander> yea :)
[21:11] <daveake> better than most :)
[21:11] <zyp> I prefer buying good monitors rather than a lot of cheap monitors
[21:11] <fsphil> that's 40% better than me ;)
[21:11] <daveake> LL 6
[21:11] <fsphil> I've a nice iiyama, although it's 16:9 and I'd still prefer 4:3
[21:11] <Lunar_Lander> ah
[21:11] <fsphil> the picture is very nice though
[21:11] <daveake> only 4 are on the main pc and get used daily
[21:12] <fsphil> I'd need to stack them vertically, no room on the desk for two side by side
[21:12] <zyp> that sounds uncomfortable
[21:13] <fsphil> yea, not gonna bother
[21:13] <fsphil> if I got rid of the telly I could put another on the side
[21:13] <zyp> http://bin.jvnv.net/f/tvvVf.JPG <- I'm pretty happy with my two monitors
[21:13] <fsphil> hah, cute
[21:14] <fsphil> I really like that
[21:14] <fsphil> my desk is too untidy to show
[21:14] <mfa298> fsphil: I'd agree with you on the iiyama monitors. I've even still got my pro 450.
[21:15] Action: Laurenceb_ has dual iiyama monitors
[21:16] <fsphil> they are good. my only issue is the controls, they're touch sensitive buttons and impossible to find in the dark
[21:16] <zyp> what kind of panels are in those iiyama monitors?
[21:16] <Laurenceb_> http://www.misco.co.uk/product/Q256673/Iiyama-P1905S-B-19inch-DVI-LCD-Monitor
[21:17] <mfa298> my one still has push buttons, although the menus can be a bit of a pain
[21:17] <mclane> Lunar_lander: celebrate your success! - good night everybody
[21:17] <daveake> I hate that. Latest monitor I used has changed those for ones that move, however they have black text on black background
[21:17] <fsphil> oooh 4:3
[21:17] <Lunar_Lander> thanks mclane !
[21:17] <Lunar_Lander> good night mclane
[21:17] <Laurenceb_> think its just regular LCD
[21:17] mclane (~uli@p5DD166F4.dip.t-dialin.net) left irc: Quit: Verlassend
[21:17] <Laurenceb_> not IPS or anything
[21:17] <Lunar_Lander> daveake, so 4 for regular work
[21:17] <Lunar_Lander> what if there is a flight :)?
[21:17] <Laurenceb_> but its 4:3 and has good colour, viewing angle and contrast
[21:17] <Lunar_Lander> Upu, btw hot glue on the GPS cap worked really well
[21:18] <zyp> both mine are IPS
[21:18] <Upu> yeah work well
[21:18] <fsphil> I do like misco -- not often the cheapest, but very quick
[21:18] <chrisstubbs> Upu sorted myself out with an antenna splitter. you wont like it! http://flic.kr/p/dZTJXk
[21:19] <fsphil> that's probably fine chrisstubbs
[21:19] <chrisstubbs> Better than the one i tried to build. Soldered another SMA onto the habamp. went to screw the connector on only to realise it was RP-sma... doh...
[21:19] <zyp> which is especially important for the one in portrait orientation, because TN panels has horrible viewing angles in vertical direction, and that becomes ten times more annoying when rotated to portrait :p
[21:19] <Laurenceb_> or you could get 4:3 and 5:4 :P
[21:19] <Laurenceb_> s/and/or
[21:20] <chrisstubbs> fsphil, we will find out next time there are multiple balloons flying (and im home to track them)
[21:20] <Upu> haha chrisstubbs
[21:20] <zyp> I don't view 4:3 as an advantage :)
[21:20] <fsphil> I got a splitter too, will be trying to compare the rtl-sdr and the funcube dongle
[21:20] <Upu> will you think of the wave lengths!
[21:21] <Lunar_Lander> oh btw
[21:21] <Lunar_Lander> the hams that came up after landing
[21:21] <mfa298> a T splitter probably isn't the most ideal method but should work
[21:21] <Lunar_Lander> they thought the four GND wires became the antenna after splashdown
[21:21] <Upu> you can get a proper splitter for £14
[21:21] <Lunar_Lander> I told him they are soldered to RF_GND
[21:21] <Laurenceb_> http://www.daveakerman.com/?attachment_id=904 lolz
[21:21] <Lunar_Lander> but still they thought that
[21:21] <Lunar_Lander> why?
[21:21] <fsphil> mfa298: a "professional" installer used a block connector to split our TV coax a few years ago
[21:21] <Upu> I took that Laurenceb :)
[21:22] <fsphil> Action HAB
[21:22] <Lunar_Lander> well our tracking car was different
[21:22] <chrisstubbs> Upu I probably should. but im not going to be using the dual setup often so i will see how this goes for the time being :)

[21:22] <mfa298> although I wonder how many pure recievers are really 50/75R impedance
[21:22] <chrisstubbs> my local HAM club did a write up about a £14 amazon SDR dongle. They loved it however it comes with a funny connector and not sure about the ESD diode
[21:23] <Upu> well I have a spare 75 ohm one here
[21:23] <Lunar_Lander> and with me were a water bottle, cups, a coffee thermos flask and cafeteria bags with muffins and rolls
[21:23] <Lunar_Lander> XD
[21:23] <Upu> I couldn't see any difference between that and the 50 ohm one

[21:49] <anerDev> is everywhere
[21:49] <arko> Earth looks mighty thirsty
[21:49] <Lunar_Lander> XD
[21:49] <fsphil> that was the last straw
[21:49] <anerDev> and is very strong ! in gqrx is a red very hard
[21:49] <Lunar_Lander> xD
[21:50] <chrisstubbs> All i can think of is some kind of plant machinery reporting its status back to "base" eg. water board?

[21:51] <mfa298> anerDev: what radio mode were you in (AM/FM/USB/LSB etc)
[21:51] <anerDev> usb
[21:51] <anerDev> because i'm seraching the ntx2 frequency
[21:51] <arko> Great work, glad to see you got some nice pics :)
[21:52] gpedder (cf23f08a@gateway/web/freenode/ip. joined #highaltitude.
[21:52] <mfa298> you might find it's something more reckogniseable in a different mode (maybe nfm)
[21:52] <Lunar_Lander> thanks arko :)!
[21:53] <mfa298> but as chrisstubbs suggested it sounds like some sort of data transfer.
[21:53] <mfa298> lots of things operate around that frequency, one of the common ones I've come accross are the home weather stations
[21:54] <anerDev> yes, I think is a "clock"
[21:54] G8KNN-Jon (~Jon@ joined #highaltitude.
[21:54] <chrisstubbs> I am still meaning to take a photo of the odd antenna that has been put up on a street lamp in town. not like the normal lighting control antennas on the other lamp posts
[21:54] <anerDev> is every day, every hours, every minute !
[21:55] <chrisstubbs> anerDev, could also be a wireless home energy monitor. they report back the current power level every few seconds
[21:55] <mfa298> the pulse before the data makes me think it's something with a carrier wave, like AM/FM. Most likely NFM
[21:55] <anerDev> but the range is over 120 km !!!!
[21:55] <Lunar_Lander> btw
[21:55] <mfa298> could be interesting to see what it sounds like if you set the reciever to nfm
[21:55] <Lunar_Lander> when I got my radio someone told me a frequency which is known as "the beeper" or so?
[21:56] <mfa298> how do you know it's over a range of 120km
[21:56] <Lunar_Lander> some sort of a russian defense signal?
[21:57] <anerDev> because
[21:57] <anerDev> i went to palermo
[21:57] <chrisstubbs> Interesting one Lunar_Lander. I would love to tune into it some time
[21:57] <anerDev> and there is this signal !
[21:58] <fsphil> Lunar_Lander: the buzzer?
[21:58] <chrisstubbs> UVB-76 as i remember
[21:58] <anerDev> the distance from my town and palermo is about 120 km
[21:58] <Lunar_Lander> yeah fsphil
[21:58] <fsphil> anerDev: it could be another one of the same device
[21:58] <mfa298> anerDev: I would suspect it's either multiple devices on the same frequency, or something you're taking with you.
[21:58] <fsphil> often overlooked mfa298
[21:59] <anerDev> probaly .. but is in every place !
[21:59] <anerDev> and sicily is very big !
[21:59] <mfa298> if it's one source over that range it's going to be high up (over 1km) and potentially fairly high power.
[22:00] <mfa298> At that frequency the radio signals are pretty much line of sight and with the earths curvature if one end is at ground level the other end is going to be over 1km in the air
[22:01] <mfa298> personally I'd like to hear a recording of it in nfm as it might become decodable

[22:03] <gpedder> hi, newbie here. I'm planning a HAB project, arduino based, as a way to learn some basic electronics etc.

[22:03] <Lunar_Lander> gpedder, no problem

[22:04] <Lunar_Lander> :D
[22:04] <SpeedEvil> you know you need pastiche permission?
[22:04] <SpeedEvil> launch permission
[22:04] <gpedder> have a couple of questions as i'm slightly overwhealmed at the moment
[22:04] <Lunar_Lander> yea I was too
[22:05] <SpeedEvil> are you in the UK?
[22:05] <gpedder> in Vancouver, Canada. Moved a few years ago from Luton

[22:10] <gpedder> cool, thanks
[22:10] <SpeedEvil> gpedder: you can, but it risks no output if the gos dies
[22:10] <SpeedEvil> GPS
[22:11] <craag> Yeah I'd suggest an RTC. The gps can occasionally lose lock momentarily, and that might break things.
[22:11] kpiman (1f363183@gateway/web/freenode/ip. left irc: Quit: Page closed
[22:11] <SpeedEvil> at least keeping some sort of internal time, even if just rougfh, and elapsed, is good.
[22:13] <gpedder> that's true. I was thinking maybe there's some way of counting in the arduino incase that happens and adding to the last good gps lock time
[22:13] <SpeedEvil> even just a sequence number can be useful
[22:13] <SpeedEvil> the number of the sentence you are transmitting
[22:14] <gpedder> also, i've heard that the time from gps is offset in some way? like no leap seconds
[22:14] <mfa298> presumably you could use a timer based interupt to count seconds since power on which you could use along with gps time (when available) to log data
[22:14] <Geoff-G8DHE> <fsphil> doesn't work in firefox, doesn't it ? Can you give me some more details ?
[22:14] <gpedder> I really need buy a module and start experimenting
