[06:32] <nigelvh> 'MURICA is allowed to do ham in the air
[06:32] <Maxell> Oh nice.
[06:33] <fsphil> yep
[06:33] <nigelvh> It is indeed.
[06:33] <Maxell> And portugal/brasil?
[06:33] <Maxell> FCC is a pain in the but with the LPD/ISM 434-ish band
[06:33] <Maxell> s/but/butt/ ;)
[06:33] <nigelvh> Why are they a pain about it?
[06:34] <Maxell> Limited duty cycle of 2%
[06:34] <Maxell> pretty strict rules iirc
[06:34] <nigelvh> Oh, I think that's pretty reasonable. Considering it's unlicenced and has to be shared by EVERYONE.
[06:35] <nigelvh> Doesn't matter though, stick a ham callsign on it and you can blast 100% all you want.
[06:35] <Maxell> http://www.afar.net/tutorials/fcc-rules
[06:35] <Maxell> lol netherlands does 100% duty cycle I think
[06:35] <nigelvh> Netherlands is also MUCH smaller
[06:35] <Maxell> I've seen things o_o
[06:36] <Maxell> and agentschap telecom (dutch FCC) is a joke :P
[06:36] <nigelvh> And may have different power limits.
[06:37] <Maxell> wat, FCC allows up to 1 watt being fed into the antenna for ISM user
[06:37] <Maxell> WAT
[06:37] <Maxell> :P
[06:37] <nigelvh> Yes, so 2% duty cycle keeps things from being bad.
[06:37] <nigelvh> Because it has to be shared.
[06:37] <Maxell> :)
[06:37] <nigelvh> If it were smaller power, then I can see larger duty cycles.
[06:37] <Maxell> .nl has <10 mW
[06:38] <nigelvh> But, again, ham license trumps the ISM band.
[06:38] <nigelvh> 1500W 100% duty cycle? Sure. As long as you've got the license and want to burn the power.
[06:38] <Maxell> Yeah, I should call agentschap telecom if I am allowed to pump full blast rtty if i get a ham licence
[06:40] <x-f> wouldn't it be limited by LOS anyway?
[06:41] <Maxell> 100 mW is full foce :P
[06:41] <nigelvh> In theory. But if you can manage to haul batteries and an amp, in the US you could do 1500W from a balloon with a ham license.
[06:41] <nigelvh> Not that I'd condone that... ;)
[06:44] <Maxell> 434 is also in dutch ham 70 cm band

[08:01] <Maxell> daveake: I think the key part of the two trackers at the time is the SDR app to support running twice on the same radio.
[08:01] <Maxell> gqrx locks the device, iirc.
[08:01] <Maxell> same for SDR#
[08:01] <Maxell> rtl_tcp only allows one user :(
[08:01] <daveake> Ah shame
[08:02] <fsphil> I've not tried gqrx multiple times yet
[08:02] <Maxell> Yeah, it would be easy-peasy otherwise.
[08:02] <daveake> Darkside recommended "SDR Radio" which apparently allows for 2 LOs in the one instance of the program. Not tried it myself.
[08:02] <Maxell> Yeah, but I find it to be a steep learning curver
[08:03] WillDuckworth (5bc66301@gateway/web/freenode/ip. joined #highaltitude.
[08:05] <Maxell> I'm going to try two SDR# now.
[08:06] <Darkside> sdr-radio v2
[08:06] <Darkside> well worth using
[08:07] <Maxell> Nope. SDR# tells me it's not connected or the driver is borken.
[08:07] <eroomde> CS is at its most satisfying when putting some memory allocation outside a loop instead of inside makes your program 100x faster
[08:07] <mfa298> +1 for sdr-radio v2 (up to 6 vfo's) in the one app and easy tosend to different sound cards
[08:09] <mfa298> I was using sdr-radio with VAC last weekend and it worked well
[08:09] <fsphil> eroomde: anything that makes the program 100x faster would have that effect :)
[08:10] <craag> Hmm, do I use the funcube for better performance on the ssdv, or the rtlsdr to listen to all the flights..
[08:10] <fsphil> 3) more antennas and both :)
[08:10] <craag> Darn you're right.
[08:12] <craag> I might see how much it screws up if I just use a t-piece after the habamp though..
[08:12] <mfa298> craag: I did that last week with the fcd and 817 and didn't notice much difference
[08:13] <mfa298> with the rtlsdr it might be better if it's really a 75R impedance (like most tv)
[08:13] <Darkside> its not
[08:13] <Darkside> the rtlsdr's input is actually 50 ohms
[08:16] <mfa298> Useful to know (I've never trusted that cheap electronics like that would follow a standard spec)
[08:16] <fsphil> well it isn't, it's suppose to be 75 ohm :)
[08:17] <mfa298> true, although I was expecting a random number between 30 and 50K

[11:18] <tim_> yeah
[11:18] <HixWork> the wiki is constantly changing and being added to
[11:18] <eroomde> the wiki is a special thing that can take a bit of getting used to
[11:19] <eroomde> there is lots added to it by lots of people, without any particuarly set of agreed namespacing standards or anything
[11:19] <HixWork> community populated and maintained

[11:20] <HixWork> the search function normally gets you exactly what you want
[11:20] <craag> Subsequently some articles are a bit rough around the edges (like your issue with the centos password). But there is an enormous amount of useful information on there.
[11:20] <tim_> i found it tricky to get to information
[11:20] <HixWork> or you can just use google with "inurl:ukhas.org.uk searchterm"
[11:21] <tim_> would you guys be interested in a navigation menu for the site
[11:22] <eroomde> if someone wants to go through an categorise everything more sensibly, that would probably be very well received

[11:23] <eroomde> i think it's more a librarian job than a code job
[11:23] <eroomde> but all help is appreciated
[11:23] <craag> tim_: You can create an account on it, it's a wiki, so anyone can edit once approved.
[11:24] <craag> I think we'd like to keep it as a wiki without any backend code changes though, for maintainability.
[11:24] <tim_> was thinking you could put a navigation border in css in an ordered list in the left side of the page and link the hyper-text to the other pages

[12:27] <mfa298> I've tried ubuntu a couple of times and both times (with different versions) I've had issues with it and IPv6 :(
[12:27] <fsphil> yea. I'm sure the scottish highlands are a lovely area, but I suspect they're payload eaters
[12:27] <mfa298> the only times I've had issues with IPv6 on Redhat/Fedora is when the linux kernel support was very new

[12:39] <mfa298> I'm planning on packaging up the various bits (and setting up a repositry) so it's easier to keep them all up to date
[12:40] <tim_> good idea
[12:40] <mfa298> I might then look at creating a small vm image using OVF as I think that's a bit more cross platform.
[12:40] <craag> The predictor is due to be rewritten soon(tm). So I think some people are waiting for that.
[12:40] <mfa298> I think there's also a lot of other stuff that's not needed in the existing image
[12:40] <oh7lzb> I love ZFS.
[12:41] <mfa298> there's also the possible re-write of the predictors although I'm not sure when that's happening (or if it will)
[12:42] <tim_> i think the generic ISO file format would be best cross platform since if you do it only in vm then people are forced onto that piece of software while iso as far as im aware works on all vm's
[12:42] <tim_> vmware*
[12:43] <oh7lzb> Does anyone need a Solaris desktop? I could sell mine, preloaded with Solaris 10. Cheap. Dual CPUs and all!
[12:43] <mfa298> that's why I was thinking ovf as that's supposed to be an open standard (although I'm not sure how many vendors support it_
[12:43] <tim_> oh sorry i maybe mistaken
[12:43] <tim_> i thought you meant souly vmware image
[12:43] <mfa298> I've not actually checked who supports OVF so it might be vmware only.

[13:47] <G0DJA> oops
[13:47] <mfa298> Maxell: I'mnot sure how well handhelds like that work for HAB work. I've got a similar kenwood hand held and it's not been that good when I've tried it.
[13:48] <G0DJA> zeusbot doesn't seem to be able to find that
[13:49] <Maxell> mfa298: tried? On a HAB in the sky or with the transmitter at home?
[13:49] <Maxell> Did you tried with the stock antenna?
[13:49] <mfa298> I've tried using the kenwood to recieve balloons but it's not as sensitive as the 817
[13:50] <G0DJA> Is there a list of the names for payloads already used?
[13:50] <mfa298> that's both with the rubber duck and a better antenna
[13:50] <mfa298> it does work though so can be used
[13:50] <G0DJA> Which Kaenwood mfa298 ?
[13:50] <G0DJA> Kenwood - even
[13:50] Action: G0DJA is all fingers and thumbs today!

[14:10] <eroomde> it has taken a bit of sweat
[14:10] <Randomskk> no insert mode?
[14:10] <Randomskk> and do you still use hkjl ever?
[14:11] <eroomde> but, i now present to you how to convert matlab vecotr indexing (eg 'a(3)') into numpy (i.e. 'a[2]')

[14:13] <eroomde> Randomskk: minimal insert mode*
[14:13] <Randomskk> I'd have just done like, idk
[14:14] <Randomskk> qa/(\d\+)<enter>l/^xq100@a or something

[14:16] <Randomskk> downside is it'l wrap around if you have fewer than 100, I think there's a good way to count finds though
[14:18] <Randomskk> right, you can just :%s/(\d\+)//gn to get the count without doing anything, then run @a that many times

[15:13] <Randomskk> oh nice
[15:13] <eroomde> you have to specify exactly which function you want it to do line-by-line in though
[15:13] <Randomskk> I recently discovered prof (as an alternative to gprof)
[15:13] <chrisstubbs> daveake, are you around?
[15:13] <eroomde> so for example
[15:14] <Randomskk> it's really nice
[15:14] <eroomde> %lprun -f my_dsp.my_inner_loop crunch_my_data(mydataset)
[15:14] <Randomskk> yea, reading up on it now
[15:14] <Randomskk> mprun also looks nice
[15:15] <eroomde> where the arguement after -f is the function you want to see the breakdown of line by line, and the last argument is just the global thing tou want to run, much like %prun crunch_my_data(mydataset)
[15:15] <willdude123> Anyone know how to setup a second virtual audio cable?
[15:15] <daveake> I'm round
[15:15] <daveake> +a
[15:16] <chrisstubbs> daveake, I was thinking today at work, could you not just use a USB>TTL converter to connect the GPS to the PI
[15:16] <chrisstubbs> or even the USB funtions of the ublox NEO-6
[15:16] <mfa298> willdude123: if you fire up the VAC control panel app there should be an option in there
[15:16] <chrisstubbs> instead of i2c?
[15:16] <willdude123> Oh Wow.
[15:16] <willdude123> That looks complicated.
[15:17] <mfa298> I think you can ignore most of it.
[15:17] <mfa298> in driver paramaters just change the number of cables.
[15:17] <mfa298> then I think you need to hit set and then restart
[15:18] <mfa298> (you might need to do a right click and run as administrator if you get errrors)
[15:18] <Geoff-G8DHE> Unless you already have a VAC running
[15:18] <Geoff-G8DHE> in that case stop them first
[15:18] <daveake> chrisstubbs Yes you could and that would work
[15:18] <chrisstubbs> might have a play around with that then :)
[15:18] <tim_> does centos have the sudo command?
[15:19] <chrisstubbs> did you go for i2c as it just eliminates the need for extra components?
[15:19] <HixWork_> tim su root
[15:19] <Randomskk> you can install sudo
[15:19] <Randomskk> why would you use centos to make the hourly disk image :(
[15:19] <mfa298> sudo exists but it's not setup in the same way as Ubuntu
[15:20] <mfa298> room normally has a password on CentOS / RHEL
[15:20] <tim_> ohh
[15:20] <chrisstubbs> Randomskk, becuase thats what mfa298 did ;)
[15:20] <Randomskk> pfft :P
[15:21] <mfa298> I used CentOS as ubuntu never agrees with me (Every time I've used ubuntu I've had to hack it around for IPv6)
[15:22] <chrisstubbs> yeah ubuntu hates me too, anything past 9.10 just wont install
[15:22] <Randomskk> probably why centos does then
[15:22] <Randomskk> :P
[15:23] <willdude123> I was wondering, how does a quarter wave antenna actually work?
[15:23] <Randomskk> it depends on what you mean by 'actually work' and how much hand waving you will accept
[15:23] <mfa298> last time I used ubuntu it wouldn't shut down or restart cleanly (I *always* had to pull the virtual power lead)
[15:23] <Randomskk> the quick version is that the ground radials look like a big mirror that reflects the driven element, so the whole thing looks like a dipole
[15:24] <Randomskk> and dipoles work
[15:24] Action: daveake awaits next question ...
[15:24] <Randomskk> there are a number of further questions
[15:24] <Randomskk> like "how do dipoles work" and "why is a ground plane like a mirror" and "how do four radials make a ground plane"
[15:25] <Randomskk> it's a deep rabbit hole
[15:25] <mfa298> can't you simplify it down to: How antennas work == Black Magic
[15:25] <tim_> none of the commands are working
[15:25] <willdude123> daveake: I am the winner on pisg for the highest number of questions?

[15:38] <HixWork_> NOAA iirc
[15:39] <HixWork_> did you open a new ssh and do the tail -f thing?
[15:39] <mfa298> the idea is you can set it up to download the data and run the predictions on a regular basis
[15:39] <HixWork_> you should see it all in progress

[16:09] <Randomskk> why don't you just use dhcp
[16:09] <Randomskk> it has a hardcoded
[16:09] <Randomskk> that's not a normal dns server address even for local networks
[16:10] <mfa298> Randomskk: pass, I'm not sure what that image does (I can't run it as it's not compatible with my VMWare setup)

[16:27] <arko> neat, they caught that up the street from me
[16:28] <mfa298> tim if you want to exit without changing anything hit escape a few times (changes to command mode) and then type :q!
[16:28] <mfa298> then use nano to edit the file instead.
[16:29] <mfa298> otherwise you can move to the right place in the file, hit i to go into insert mode, enter what you want to change, then hit escape and then type :wq
[16:30] <Randomskk> tim_: really there are much better editors to use if you don't know vim, for that purpose
[16:30] <Randomskk> "nano /etc/resolv.conf" might be much easier
[16:32] <tim_> is nano default in centos?

[17:24] <tim_> i am in logs
[17:24] <lz1dev> dshaw_: yes, since you start from altitude you want to reach
[17:24] <lz1dev> if you use ascent rate, the amount would differ

[17:34] <dshaw_> lz1dev: when using the form, I'm trying to target a burst altitude rather than an ascent speed, but maybe this isn't the way I should be approaching the project
[17:34] <HixPad> tim_: Mine is on same, maybe server is holding up their end
[17:34] <lz1dev> dshaw_: ascent rate is more important imo
[17:34] <geepee> hi all. i'm working on an arduino project as a tracker and i'm wondering if there's a faster way to transmit than rtty. Currently the program has to wait for the string to transmit but then I can't log my other data to SD with the frequency I want
[17:35] <lz1dev> dshaw_: a low ascent speed, might create floater
[17:35] <dshaw_> lz1dev: I'm very new to high altitude balloon...so maybe you could explain why you believe ascent rate is more important :D
[17:35] <Randomskk> geepee: use interrupts on the arduino
[17:35] <dshaw_> lz1dev: ahhh, I see
[17:35] <geepee> won't that malform the tx on the radio?
[17:36] <lz1dev> dshaw_: best practicde is to aim for 5m/s ascent rate
[17:36] <HixPad> geepee: www.engblaze.com/microcontroller-tutorial-avr-and-arduino-timer-interrupts/
[17:36] <lz1dev> and control the estimated burst altitude with balloon and payload size
[17:36] <dshaw_> lz1dev: when using 70,000 feet as my target burst altitude, 6lbs payload weight, and kaymont 600 I receive hydrogen 6.74 m/s and helium 6.18 m/s...do you believe these to be too high?
[17:37] <HixPad> 6lbs?
[17:37] <geepee> thanks, i will have a read of that
[17:37] <dshaw_> lz1dev: ft and lbs coverted to m and grams, of course

[17:38] <lz1dev> dshaw_: as i said, best practice would be to aim at 5m/s
[17:38] <lz1dev> you can use the mouse scroll wheel over inputs to see how it affects the calcualtion
[17:38] <dshaw_> lz1dev: thanks for your help. i'll definitely spend more time calculating before purchasing my gas
[17:41] <lz1dev> dshaw_: try out different values to get a feel what affects what
[17:42] <lz1dev> then you can run a prediction http://habhub.org/predict/
[17:43] <dshaw_> lz1dev: the calc and predict pages for habhub are both super helpful, so thanks if anyone in this IRC worked on those pages. For my project, I'm aiming for a burst altitude of ~70,000 ft and for a 6lbs payload (FAA weight limit on ballooning)

[20:12] <eroomde> make the flight doc and pop into #habhub, ask them to authorise it
[20:12] <eroomde> then you're good to go
[20:18] <dharnke> ok, so if i wanted to launch tomorrow, ill make the flight docs and i can ask them to authorise it straight away?
[20:20] <lz1dev> probably, but best to do it a bit before the launch
[20:20] <lz1dev> just in case

[20:53] <Upu> shouldn't be
[20:54] <Upu> I don't know what its made from but you'll need a powerful iron to get enough heat into it
[20:54] <Upu> its a SO259 panel mount socket
[20:56] <mfa298> if it's attaching cables to the outer part of a so239 it might be easier to solder to a washer and then use a nut and bolt to join the bits together.
[20:57] <Upu> yeah thats not a bad idea
[20:57] <Upu> how many radials have you snapped Will ?
[20:58] <willdude123> All.
[20:58] <willdude123> Except the psares.
[20:58] <Upu> yeah they are fragile when you bend them round like that
[20:59] <willdude123> Well, they are all on there so I migh as well atempt to solder them there.
[20:59] <willdude123> Forgot to put a washer on a few of them,
[20:59] <willdude123> Wait, does that matter much?
[21:01] <mfa298> i think you'd struggle to solder directly onto the so239 it's going to require a lot of heat.
[21:01] jcoxon (~jcoxon@host86-148-50-152.range86-148.btcentralplus.com) joined #highaltitude.
[21:02] <Geoff-G8DHE_> You will need a minimum of a 50watt iron and 75-100watt won't do any harm!
[21:02] <willdude123> Okay.
[21:02] <Geoff-G8DHE_> And the largest bit you have 5mm or bigger as that holds a reserve of heat as well
[21:03] <willdude123> I'll see how powerful it is.
[21:03] <SpeedEvil> preheat helps
[21:03] <Upu> be aware
[21:03] <mfa298> soldering onto something smaller that you can bolt on would probably be easier (like a washer)
[21:03] <SpeedEvil> heat to 100c first
[21:03] <Upu> the SO259 is a chinese one and the center insulator will probably melt
[21:04] <Geoff-G8DHE_> yes that can be a problem on cheap sockets :-(
[21:06] Action: SpeedEvil wonders where his gallium is.
[21:06] <willdude123> Upu: I'm having second thoughts now.
[21:07] <Upu> soldering to a washer is a good idea
[21:08] <mfa298> that's the method I use to join the coax to my DIY dipole and it seems to work well (making sure it's done up tightly)
[21:09] <SpeedEvil> just use a bit of copper tape
[21:09] <mfa298> you can also solder onto a wing nut
[21:09] <SpeedEvil> backing the washer
[21:10] <SpeedEvil> steel, or worse, stainless is hideous at ref

[22:52] <N9JCA> just got a note about the balloon launch for Sat @ 5am ( CDT USA ) will this work with an FM Receiver and Xastir Tracking Program?
[22:52] <arko> oh?
[22:53] <arko> launch location?
[22:54] <N9JCA> doesn't say where launch point is but is expected to float easward over Europe
[22:55] <N9JCA> I thought some might be interested, meant to mention it tonight: Dave Akerman is flying a Raspberry Pi under a High Altitude Balloon again tomorrow. This time's a little different however, as the balloon will not be configured to burst, but instead float slowly East over Europe at an altitude of around 30km. Launch is planned for about 11am BST.
[22:55] <daveake> Launch location is secret so we don't have a hoard of RPi fanboys descend on us!
[22:55] <N9JCA> this is from the IVARC Radio Club
[22:55] <daveake> If I say it's "in Cambs" then regulars can have a guess
[22:56] <daveake> ta
[22:56] <daveake> To track you need an SSB receiver and dl-fldigi software
[22:58] <N9JCA> well I have fldigi but not SSB for 440 darn the bad luck:(
[22:58] <fsphil> you'd also need line of sight to the balloon
[22:58] <fsphil> where abouts are you?
[22:59] <mfa298> also not that dl-fldigi is slighlty different to the regular fldigi
[22:59] <N9JCA> 2 weeks a go I was involved with an HAB locally in Indiana USA and the balloon reached 108,000 +/- before bursting
[23:00] <Morseman> I don't think you will hear it in the USA N9JCA ...

[23:09] <N9JCA> G0DJA I think we have connected with APRS be4
[23:10] <Morseman> BATC stream at http://www.batc.tv/ch_live.php?ch=3&id=1010
[23:10] <Morseman> I did use APRS but was a long time ago now
[23:10] <N9JCA> I run an APRS I-GATE here si it might pop up
[23:11] <lz1dev> N9JCA: most likely M0UPU-10
[23:12] <N9JCA> used to connect with a Staion nr B"ham name was Dave used to connect/chat while I was driving my Lorry across the US samll world
[23:12] <mfa298> or more technically ??/M0UPU-10 where ?? depends on which country its over
[23:13] <mfa298> but APRS will only run some of the time as not all of europe allows use of amateur radio when airborne
