[01:43] <nigelvh> I like the data you've got there arko. Particularly the magnetometer. It's EXACTLY what I would have expected.
[01:50] <arko> why so much noise?
[01:52] <nigelvh> The magnetic field of the earth is (obviously) oriented in a given direction. Your payload rotates, so you're seeing the measured strength vary based on the angle of the axis of the sensor versus the axis of the magnetic field.
[01:52] <nigelvh> So if you measure at a fast enough rate, you've got a payload compass.

[07:38] <daveake> After that last position it would have climbed, possibly to well over 40km, then probably burst. I don't know how much further that would be but a landing in france seems likely

[10:00] <eroomde> I tested a large selection out of frustration once and found that many had a contact resistence of typically 2 ohms!
[10:01] <eroomde> The bulgin battery holders were the best I've found, by some margin.
[10:01] <eroomde> you can even get nice panel-mount ones which are IP67 (jet of water) proof
[10:02] <Babs> fsphil - melted two sheets with the wrong adhesive. Adhesive skill level: Sub amateur

[10:03] <Babs> That may work for Babs tracker II eroomde - another downside of prototyping. Spending hours doing it one way only to work out at the end that one would have done it another. Batteries and location are a case in point...
[10:04] <Geoff-G8DHE_> <Babs> In your Gimbal setup do you have any sort of Gyro to maintain stability or is it just to remove movment from the tether line ?

[10:08] <Babs> Geoff-G8DHE - there are two main counterweight groupings. The first is the payload, which sits below the gimbal. The second counterweight grouping is in the form of three spinning wheels that sit on top of three rods 120 degrees from each other - you can see the basic arrangement here (although i just have dummy counterweights rather than the spinning wheels in this vid, and its the former incarnation of my payload box)
[10:08] <Babs> here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/91049302@N00/8589746393/in/set-72157632733154985

[10:11] <Babs> Haven't yet tested the difference in the time to get the system leveled with the wheels spinning vs. not spinning. It should make some improvement, but I'm not expecting much. More of a test of concept more than anything.
[10:12] <Geoff-G8DHE_> Right I was looking for some spinning wheels within the actual payload area all at right angles or something like that!

[10:14] <Babs> eroomde - the principles of that stability cube thing that someone (I forget who) posted the other day I think would have some applications here
[10:14] <mattbrejza> the idea being that if you accelerate or brake the wheels actively you can make it more stable while requiring less weight than spinning at a static speed?
[10:15] <Geoff-G8DHE_> The top package contains the aerial for the P2P link back as well as .... who knows ..
[10:15] <Babs> Also, my system is passive, whereas an active system would be far more effective
[10:15] <eroomde> mattbrejza: well, just that accelerating a wheel imparts and equal and opposite torque back onto the frame
[10:16] <eroomde> whereas there is in theory no equal torque imparted back for something spinning at a constant speed
[10:16] <eroomde> of course there is in reality from bearing friction and so on
[10:16] <Babs> Geoff-G8DHE - agreed, but there has to be a gyro in it somewhere. I took a look at one at Twickenham a while back and it is really stable.
[10:17] <Geoff-G8DHE_> Yes they are neveer had a look inside either! Ill have a chat with a colleague who is a BBC news cameraman he may have had the chance to study them in more detail!
[10:17] <eroomde> whereas a constant-angular-velocity spinning wheel provides some counter-torque in the 2 axes that are *not* its rotational axis
[10:17] <mattbrejza> but a mass moving at a static speed gets stability from the gyroscopic effect
[10:17] <eroomde> exactly
[10:17] <eroomde> but in the orthogonal axis to the momentum-wheel
[10:17] <eroomde> axes*
[10:18] <mattbrejza> yea
[10:18] <Geoff-G8DHE_> quite doesn't have to be heavy just spun fast!
[10:18] <dharnke> hi i wanted to know, i was looking at the wiki page for helium (cubic metres) needed for a 300g balloon is 0.84cu m. Should i order more helium than that amount or roughly the exact amount?
[10:18] <eroomde> there are also control moment gyros which take a gyro and actively rotate it about one of its other axis
[10:18] <eroomde> to provide a torque around the third remaining axis
[10:18] <eroomde> they're pretty powerful things
[10:19] <Geoff-G8DHE_> I'd just love to try assembling some Spherical images, but looking at other results so far the pacjage needs to be made more stable first!
[10:19] <eroomde> the space shuttles uses them to counteract the torque from the atmosphere
[10:19] <eroomde> space station*
[10:20] <mattbrejza> so would actively accelerating the wheels provide more stability for less mass than a constantly span gyro?
[10:20] <eroomde> because there's a density gradient from the atmosphere between the top and bottom of the station, it wants to start rolling
[10:20] <Geoff-G8DHE_> <dharnke> I assume you need that + the volume of the tank and tubing at least ?
[10:20] <eroomde> mattbrejza: well, with reaction wheels you have active control
[10:21] <fsphil> eroomde: that can't be very much above 0
[10:21] <eroomde> you can apply a bit more torque to the wheel to move a bit more in the other direction. whereas a gyro just spun up is passively stable
[10:21] <eroomde> it'll damp your movement but it won't do much against it gently drifting around
[10:21] <Babs> The other way which would be interesting to look at would be to have two weights moving along rails at right angles to each other. As the package starts to tilt, the weights are moved further away from the COG to stablise it
[10:22] <Babs> Sort of like what the segway tries to achieve by shifting the COG around
[10:22] <mattbrejza> useful if you wanted to try to take a long exposure of the sky on a hab, although i have a feeling that might be pushing how stable youll be able to get it
[10:22] <dharnke> i thought i needed some extra for tubing
[10:22] <eroomde> i would *love* to do an actively stabilised hab that could do some astrophotography
[10:23] <eroomde> it would be the epicest of things (imo)
[10:23] <Babs> Of course, you would need some sort of coding ability beyond 10 Print "Babs" 20 Goto 10 which is around about what I can muster up
[10:23] <Babs> to get it working
[10:23] <Geoff-G8DHE_> My own thoughts run around a gimbal to the tether line and then some vanes on the payload to impart a small spin to the whole payload - or stabilse it whilst the tether untwists itself.
[10:23] <mattbrejza> you could have analogue circiuts to point it...
[10:24] <fsphil> wide angle lense, and image stacking would make astrophotography easier
[10:24] <Babs> and valves!
[10:24] <eroomde> gotta love valves
[10:24] <eroomde> but srsly, turning picam into a star tracker would be a splendid thing
[10:24] <mattbrejza> many points to the first person to make good use of valves
[10:25] <lz1dev> fsphil: no.
[10:25] <lz1dev> stacking highly distorted images is kinda hard
[10:25] <mattbrejza> grumpy_cat.jpg
[10:25] <Babs> Geoff G8DHE - you can use a central rotating bearing to achieve the same. There's a vid on my page. Its a plastic bearing but works pretty well under load
[10:25] <fsphil> eroomde: it didn't image any stars, at least any that survived jpeg encoding. though Laurenceb did notice the LED on the board might have limited how sensitive it was getting

[10:26] <Babs> together with the flight computer being loaded up through a punch card system

[10:26] <eroomde> i'm not suprised it didn;t pick up stars during the day

[10:34] <mattbrejza> if you pointed a camera downwards you should even be able to see the shadow
[10:34] <fsphil> someone did that for the Oz eclipse
[10:34] <Babs> eroomde - the SLR would help, although for all of the discussion on stability getting it very high and away from 99% of the atmospheric buffeting and (most importantly) using some sort of bearing arrangement to stop the payload spinning would be the best way I think
[10:35] <Babs> that and taking lots and lots and lots of photos. Not an elegant solution, but prob most effective.

[10:36] <fsphil> you'd be much better asking this on the raspberry pi forum
[10:36] <manav16> I did, but I just thought over here there are people who are here already, while on the forums it could take some time for a answer
[10:37] <mattbrejza> i think based on that video something stabilised and pointed would be needed to get anything decent

[10:38] <fsphil> a downward facing camera would be a must too

[10:53] <mfa298> you might get away with fair use on youtube but that could be risky (I'm not sure that fair use applies in all countries), I've mostly looked at it from the live audio point of view.
[10:55] <mattbrejza> while you may be able to claim fair use, try arguing it when the record company ban hammers the video
[10:56] <mfa298> yep, Personally I'd try to steer clear of fair use (I'm not sure how much it even applies in the UK, I think it might be more of a USA thing)
[10:57] <mattbrejza> na UK too
[10:57] <Randomskk> it's almost certainly not fair use if you're using most of the song as background for your video
[10:57] <Randomskk> fair use is using small segments for criticism and discussion
[10:57] <Randomskk> not as background music for your video

[12:13] <mattbrejza> actually fldigi does use gps for something, nm then
[12:13] <fsphil> it has a chase car feature
[12:13] <cuddykid> anyone tried air products before for H2/He?
[12:13] <cuddykid> just found out there's a depot very close by
[12:14] <HixWork> Anyone know if i can use a dongle and SDR# to test my 2.4GHz video sender? RX seems to have dies, but then again it could be Tx
[12:14] <mfa298> I've seen the same thing on windows when I've tried using GPS with it. But then unless you're a mobile tracker there's not much need to use gps
[12:14] <HixWork> *dies
[12:14] <HixWork> **Died ffs
[12:14] <fsphil> if it can tune up that high, you should see a carrier from it with no video input
[12:15] <fsphil> I believe these video senders use FM
[12:15] <mattbrejza> im fairly sure the e4k doesnt do 2.4GHz but you can try i guess
[12:15] <mfa298> challenge is likely to find a dongle that can tune that high. But if you can you should be able to at least see something in the waterfall

[12:17] <HixWork> just had a play in the office, seems like there is a load of stuff around 2.43GHz http://i.imgur.com/HMP9lC7.png
[12:17] <fsphil> wonder how much of that is real
[12:17] <HixWork> though from that I'm not sure how to use it for debugging, short of turn on/off and watch waterfall
[12:17] <fsphil> yea
[12:18] <mfa298> HixWork: that's what I'd do to start with
[12:18] <fsphil> or change the channel, see if the frequency changes
[12:18] <fsphil> then apply video, see if the signal changes
[12:18] <mattbrejza> hmm, wifi is either OFDM or DSSS, which doesnt look like that
[12:18] <HixWork> was fine yesterday, got a feeling there's so much stuff in homes on that band that its probably interference causing issues
[12:18] came88 (4f158e67@gateway/web/freenode/ip. joined #highaltitude.
[12:19] <HixWork> though the Tx is 500mW ;p so should be frying everything else locally
[12:19] <fsphil> video senders should always generally give some kind of picture
[12:19] <fsphil> you do know the limit is 10mw :)
[12:19] <HixWork> It shipped from HK UK warehouse *shrug*
[12:20] <mattbrejza> unless you put it on a train apparently
[12:20] <HixWork> mattbrejza, aren't a lot of cordless phones 2.4GHz?
[12:20] <fsphil> everything is on 2.4ghz. more or less
[12:20] <mfa298> lots of stuff can use 2.4GHz
[12:21] <mattbrejza> theres 500mW for rfid at 2.4GHz too

[12:22] <mattbrejza> theres 500mW for video cameras at 1.39GHz
[12:22] <mattbrejza> hadnt seen that before
[12:22] <HixWork> whereas the Rx is proper cack quality as you'd expect for what it cost, Rx andtenna is a length of 7/02 wire cut to length and soldered to the pcb

[12:26] <mattbrejza> i would assume video at 1.39GHz from a balloon is pushing it
[12:26] <fsphil> can you use it from the air?
[12:26] <fsphil> I bet it's not permitted
[12:26] <mattbrejza> it doesnt say you cant :P
[12:26] <mattbrejza> which means no

[12:47] <x-f> that article is from January 2013
[12:48] <x-f> when i was at the CAA, we talked back and forth a few hours, and they said they knew about only one plane that has ever landed with some latex from a meteosonde on its wing

[12:49] <x-f> err.. Jan 2012
[12:50] <cuddykid> yup, 1) the chance is ridiculously slim 2) if there was any inherent danger, I'm sure with such a strict organisation like CAA it would have been banned long ago

[12:55] <UpuWork> if I recall contains swearing
[12:56] <gonzo_> when talking about HAB stuff, people always bring up the plane risk. They are quite supprised when told that the UK met office launched around 24 sondes every day. (last I read was 2/day at up to 12 sites.)
[12:57] <willdude123> Hi.
[12:57] <fsphil> the sonde launch site here is only about 20km from an airport
[12:57] <UpuWork> afternoon Will
[12:57] <gonzo_> have a talk to do at my local club this sunday.
[12:58] <willdude123> internet security in schools is messed up
[12:59] <willdude123> :P
[12:59] <willdude123> Seriously.
[12:59] <willdude123> I am on IRC.
[12:59] <willdude123> At school.
[13:01] <willdude123> So how's stuff?
[13:01] <willdude123> Anything heard of PIE?
[13:02] <mfa298> Internet policy tends to be driven by HR (or similar) rather than people that actually know stuff. I've worked in places that wanted to block Facebook for everyone (to improve productivity), they re-thought that when it was pointed out that people needed to access FB as part of the job to update groups/pages
[13:03] <fsphil> we've had similar incident
[13:03] <mfa298> willdude123: it could be a while before anything is heard from PIE (if ever)
[13:03] <willdude123> Would it have added much to the weight if there was an aprs payload?
[13:04] <mfa298> may not have helped as I don't think it's clear if APRS can be used airborne in france
[13:05] <UpuWork> its unclear
[13:05] <UpuWork> though it was enabled for AVA :/
[13:05] <UpuWork> not that it was used
[13:05] <mfa298> I don't think there was any intention to recover it anyway
[13:05] <UpuWork> in fairness we had a PAVA in a ball which was meant to be strung under PIE
[13:06] <UpuWork> it was only 45g and would have lasted 45 hours +
[13:06] <UpuWork> but we forgot about it, launches can be hectic
[13:06] <mfa298> UpuWork: have you thought about also enabling APRS for when the balloon has landed (or close to landing) as that would be legal in more countries
[13:06] <willdude123> Bye!
[13:06] <UpuWork> yeah would work in theory but you'd have to be close to something
[13:06] <UpuWork> byw Will
[13:07] <UpuWork> that could recieve
[13:07] <UpuWork> as your antenna is likely to be bent on landing
[13:08] <mfa298> agreed on the ground it might not help much. I was wondering whether you could cheat slightly and assume you're on the ground when you're below a certain height. although choosing when to send the packet could be tricky
[13:08] <fsphil> best to have one on top and one on bottom
[13:09] <UpuWork> if AVA's APRS had been working it would have been RX'd on the ground I suspect
[13:09] <UpuWork> even though the antenna was in snow
[13:22] <Babs> The snow picture reminds me of the gang of criminals trying to recover the beacon locators with the suitcases of money in the Stallone movie Cliffhanger. I was half expecting Craig Fairbrass to appear from behind a tree in one of the photos and take out OM2AMR with a revolver.

[16:34] <Geoff-G8DHE_> It just struck me that it might be a way of getting the idea accepted, even if we started with say a request for 10mW on 434.75 using packet....
[16:35] ChipUK (~ChipUK@host31-53-117-99.range31-53.btcentralplus.com) joined #highaltitude.
[16:37] <mfa298> might be worth asking for a bit more power or a different frequency as we can probably do 10mW packet as an ISM transmission anyway
[16:37] <craag> There's so many other services on 70cm though, I don't think they'd give us any more on that band.
[16:39] <Geoff-G8DHE_> No should be OK, MoD still have first dibs and their not about to give it up to just OfComm unless ordereed to from on high!
[16:40] <Geoff-G8DHE_> but even so 23cms isn't too bad, but actually going lower might be easier.
[16:40] <Geoff-G8DHE_> The main thing is to allow AR from the air!
[16:41] <mfa298> 433.800 could be interesting to ask for, it's just outside the ISM band and is listed as an alternative for APRS in the bandplan
[16:41] <craag> Hmm yeah.
[16:41] <Geoff-G8DHE_> Indeed sounds good.
[16:41] <willdude123> Can't connect to ajaxterm. Grrrrrr.
[16:42] <mfa298> scratch the first bit, it is within ISM. but would give a reason to ask for packet and AR from the air
[16:42] <craag> Using >1W on it might still jam wireless key fobs across v large areas..
[16:42] bertrik (~quassel@rockbox/developer/bertrik) joined #highaltitude.
[16:43] <mfa298> it might be a case of see if there are any suitable modules and ask for a power limit based on that maybe around 300mW as that seemed to do ok for 2m APRS from the air.
[16:43] <Geoff-G8DHE_> We know we don't need vast power, its the change of ruling on AR from the air which is cirtical, once that is accepted once then, other things can follow ..
[16:44] <mfa298> asking for 10mW could be a safe bet as we could already do that, just not with an AR call sign
[16:45] <Geoff-G8DHE_> That's my reasoning! Once there and show no interference then the precedent is set....
[16:45] <Geoff-G8DHE_> Even using a listen before Tx might be viable, but increases the current draw for low power stuff.
[16:46] <mfa298> showing that the power and frequency are already allowed airborne could help with that as well (if we started off with 10mW)
[16:47] <Geoff-G8DHE_> Exactly and enough stuff using the band already un-licensed what more could be required ....
[16:48] G8KNN-Jon (~Jon@cpc1-cmbg10-0-0-cust144.5-4.cable.virginmedia.com) joined #highaltitude.
[16:48] <Geoff-G8DHE_> Thing is not to cause OfComm hassle, if they can do it cheap they prefer it as its quicker to say Yes than No in some cases (not all) ..
[16:49] <mfa298> I think that's also part of the band we don't use with trackers so much as it's in the 10mW <10% duty cylce or 1mW section
[16:49] <mfa298> but for aprs that shouldn't be an issue.
[16:50] <Geoff-G8DHE_> Yes the protocol is irrelevant
[16:51] <mfa298> although if we're doing packet with AR callsigns that might be the sensible option.
[16:52] Action: mfa298 wonders if there's much of a 433.800 aprs network existing

[16:56] <qyx_> these depends on network services / bots
[16:56] <mfa298> with the 433.800 and aprs I was just thinking that lots of things fit nicely for a first attempt (already listed as an alternative aprs frequency and part of the ISM band) in which case the only thing for ofcom/rsgb to decide is if we can use AR callsigns from airborne.

[17:05] <Hix> what about things like the TX2H can you somehow reduce the power to 10mW?

[17:08] <Hix> Upu, is it possible to cut the power of TX2H to <10mW?
[17:09] <bertrik> mfa298: for more advanced modulation methods, for example?
[17:09] <Hix> seems stupid that the version of NTX2 that has 2.5 times the power is half the cost
[17:11] <mfa298> bertrik: my thought was initially to do APRS on 433.800 as it fits nicely with the UK AR Bandplans and the ISM band for airborne (so should give the easiest possible NoV for Ofcom/RSGB to authorise)

[17:22] <mfa298> if you're setting it up in putty I think you have to specify an additional port for it to listen on

[17:25] <mfa298> Hix if you're doing it with putty on the windows box Ithink you need to select dynamic in tunnels and add a port into the source port box and click add, that port is where you point the socks client

[17:28] <Hix> yup, in tunnels I've selected dynamic and port 22 add save config
[17:28] <Hix> set windows to use localhost:22 as socks
[17:28] <mfa298> id be tempted to use a different port rather than 22 (although it should work)
[17:30] number10 (51870a7b@gateway/web/freenode/ip. joined #highaltitude.
[17:31] <Hix> nigelvh, that is what I've followed. Ive set a tcp forward port 22 on the router at home to the ip of centos on the network
[17:31] <Hix> mfa298: using 22 just to get working then I'll change it
[17:32] <Hix> just got port forwarded to that port already and know it works as can ssh into centos
[17:32] <craag> Hix: You're sshing on port 22, and you've got an open ssh session to home right?
[17:32] <Hix> yup
[17:33] <craag> Try tunneling 8080 instead.
[17:33] <Hix> ok
[17:34] <mfa298> seems to have worked for me, I used 1080 for the tunnel port, set FF to use a socks proxy on localhost:1080
[17:34] <mfa298> whatsmyip.org shows the address of the machine I ssh'ed to

[17:36] <craag> Hix: Working?
[17:37] <craag> You're still sshing on port 22 btw, so you don't need any more ports opened on your router, just to clarify.
[17:37] <Hix> Nope. Set port forward for 8080 then in putty set tunnel to dynamic port 8080
[17:37] <Hix> something is blocking something somewhere
[17:37] <Hix> which clears things up nicely :)
[17:37] <craag> So your ssh session onto home-ip:22 is working and opening a shell?
[17:39] <Hix> yes fine
[17:39] <Hix> can pwd ls etc and see CentOS working tickedyboo
[17:39] <mfa298> when acting as a socks proxy putty will listen on localhost (and whatever port you've put as the source port in putty)
[17:39] <craag> cool, and you have Dynamic tunneling on Local port 8080.
[17:40] <craag> No remote port, leave it blank
[17:40] <Hix> yup just dynamic on 8080 then add shows as D8080

[17:40] <craag> what browser do you have?
[17:40] <Hix> Chrome
[17:41] <craag> Do you have ff?

[17:41] <craag> Just to troubleshoot
[17:42] <mfa298> i think you can also manually set proxies in IE (as a way of testing)
[17:43] <Hix> chrome is using the windows internet setting dialog
[17:43] <Hix> which iirc IE does too?
[17:44] <mfa298> i had a feeling you could tell IE to do it's own thing. although it's been a while since I've looked at IE

[18:45] <mattbrejza> well good to know a tablet can handle both at once

[19:51] <Upu> Was amazing
[19:51] <Upu> written up here http://ava.upuaut.net/?p=522
[19:52] <Upu> Dave's written up as well
[19:52] <PD3EM> yeah... saw it on twitter
[19:52] <PD3EM> Nice phot's from the recovery
[19:52] Nick change: azend_ -> azend
[19:53] <Upu> Yep Radim and friends did an amazing job
[19:53] <PD3EM> they sure did!
[19:53] Nick change: azend -> azend_
[19:54] <PD3EM> was a long trip fori them. abt 200km drive, hike trough the snow and drive back
[19:54] <Lunar_Lander> btw
[19:54] <Lunar_Lander> one of my balloon team guys has an idea for his Raspberry Pi
[19:55] <PD3EM> great
[19:55] <Lunar_Lander> he wants to make a webserver
[19:55] <Lunar_Lander> with a harddrive which can be switched on with a relay
[19:57] <PD3EM> and connect to it over radio?
[20:00] <Lunar_Lander> via internet afaik
[20:01] <mfa298> I'd have thought it's better to just tell the drive to spin down.
[20:01] <chrisstubbs> does anybody use thier FT-817 on AA batteries?
[20:01] <mfa298> using a relay just sounds like it could do nasty things
[20:02] <mfa298> chrisstubbs: I have tried it in the past but don't normally
[20:02] PD3EM (4da77145@gateway/web/freenode/ip. left irc: Ping timeout: 245 seconds
[20:02] <nigelvh> Lunar, no relays. Hard drives support spinning themselves down without disconnecting the interface. Use that.
[20:02] <chrisstubbs> mfa298, do you know if you can plug it into the DC input while batteries are in it?
[20:02] <chrisstubbs> i remember seeing a warning somewhere not to?
[20:03] <chrisstubbs> eg plug it into car cig. lighter adapter
[20:03] PD3EM (4da77145@gateway/web/freenode/ip. joined #highaltitude.
[20:03] <mfa298> chrisstubbs: not sure off hand, although I thought you possibly could as long as the cable is wired properly
[20:03] <PD3EM> Thought it would be launched with a HAB ;-)
[20:03] <Lunar_Lander> nigelvh, his idea was hooking up the power supply to the relay
[20:03] <mfa298> I think one of the cables indiciates if it's rechargeable or not
[20:03] <Lunar_Lander> PD3EM, xD yea
[20:04] <chrisstubbs> oh right i see what you mean, yeah i have the standard non rechargabe AA pack, so i presume the recharge bit is disconnected, i guess i should check the manual :P
[20:05] <mfa298> i tend to just use the rechargeable pack or run from the car/off an sla
[20:05] Hiena (~boreger@ left irc: Remote host closed the connection
[20:05] <nigelvh> Lunar_Lander, is this a USB drive?
[20:05] <Lunar_Lander> I don't remember if he said what sort of drive it is
[20:06] <Lunar_Lander> I think a SATA one
[20:06] <Lunar_Lander> something just crossed my mind
[20:06] <nigelvh> If it's USB that would probably work ok. Don't do it with sata. The interface isn't designed to be disconnected like that, and if you shut off power, then the sata would shut down.
[20:06] <Lunar_Lander> a thing he might not have thought of

[20:07] <nigelvh> If it's a sata drive, he needs to have the computer send a spin down command.
[20:07] <Lunar_Lander> I'll have to talk to him again
[20:08] <nigelvh> If it's USB, it's designed to handle disconnections and reconnections, so that could work.
[20:08] <mfa298> SATA2 is supposed to support hot plug as part of the spec, although I've never really wanted to trust it.
[20:08] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[20:09] <mfa298> but I'd have thought for most things spindown is probably safer as you know the drive will have written data before it spins down

[20:30] <arko> but good idea
[20:30] <Upu> AVA was slightly different
[20:30] <Lunar_Lander> Upu, so the Sarantel as a passive antenna?
[20:30] <Upu> yes Lunar
[20:30] <arko> are those glued in?
[20:30] <Lunar_Lander> and active?
[20:30] <Upu> Yes Arko
[20:30] <arko> cool
[20:31] <Upu> Yes Lunar_Lander you can use passive or active

[21:28] <jcoxon> chrisstubbs, launch in pm?

[21:31] <WilldudeTablet> Good evening.
[21:32] <chrisstubbs> I rescheduled my launch before habjoe, should have started a new thread to make it a little clearer of our intentions

[21:36] <LokisSword> Hey all
[21:37] <fsphil> howdy
[21:37] <LokisSword> Have some better radio kit on the way :)

[21:37] <LokisSword> Got chatting to a buy at work who turns out to be a Technician level ham
[21:37] <LokisSword> er... buy = guy
[21:38] <fsphil> the spending begins!
[21:38] <fsphil> whatcha getting?
[21:38] <LokisSword> He's going to lend me his ICOM PCR-1000 on long term lend
[21:39] dwd (5504b0c8@gateway/web/freenode/ip. left #highaltitude.
[21:39] <fsphil> ah interesting gadget
[21:39] <WilldudeTablet> Upu: So how does a PCB work? :-)
[21:40] <LokisSword> Yup, I think that with a netbook would make a good mobile tracking platform
[21:40] <mfa298> LokisSword: that sounds like a good result
[21:40] <fsphil> WilldudeTablet: magic
[21:40] <WilldudeTablet> What is the point of the NRX2 if most people use their own SDRs or SSBs?
[21:40] <fsphil> WilldudeTablet: it appears to use RS232?
[21:40] <fsphil> the NRX2 is for short range reception
[21:41] <fsphil> the ntx2 is really only meant for short range data
[21:41] <LokisSword> mfa298: yes, I thought so - just need a decent mounting point on the roof for an aerial now :)
[21:41] <WilldudeTablet> So why aren't more powerful modules used?
[21:42] <fsphil> 10mw is as powerful as they get
[21:42] <fsphil> legally
[21:42] <fsphil> well there are exceptions
[21:42] <LokisSword> I'll relegate the SDR to DVB-T and spend some money on a better aerial, rather than pre-amp for the SDR
[21:42] <fsphil> 500mw on 869mhz for example
[21:42] <WilldudeTablet> So why isn't that used?
[21:42] <fsphil> it's limited to 6 minutes of transmittions per hour
[21:42] <fsphil> 10% duty
[21:43] <WilldudeTablet> Can you tamper with car fobs on the NTX2 frequency?
[21:43] <fsphil> or 6 seconds per minute, whichever way you want
[21:43] <griffonbot> Received email: STRATODEAN "[UKHAS] STRATODEAN Launch 10am 21/04/13 from Coleford, Forest of
[21:43] <fsphil> you can jam them quite effectivly :)
[21:44] <WilldudeTablet> Can you open cars?
[21:45] <fsphil> no, just prevent others from opening their own car
[21:45] <griffonbot> Received email: Chris Stubbs "[UKHAS] Launch Announcement - NSE1 - Sat 20th April 2013 - 9AM"
[21:45] <WilldudeTablet> Why can't you?
[21:45] <fsphil> can't I what?
[21:46] <mfa298> the key fobs have various security encodings so you can't pretend to be one
[21:46] <mfa298> if they could be easily fooled they wouldn't provide very good security
[21:46] <WilldudeTablet> Ah OK.

[21:51] <LokisSword> Ah that's better a proper IRC client :D
[21:51] <fsphil> I solved this problem by having a dodgey fuel line, my car would probably stop after a minute
[21:51] <WilldudeTablet> Did ava and pie fail for the same reason.
[21:51] <WilldudeTablet> ?
[21:51] <fsphil> ava didn't fail
[21:51] <fsphil> pie just ran out of power, which wasn't reailly a failure either
[21:52] <fsphil> that was by design
[21:52] <Upu> hey willdude123 PCB just uses copper tracks where wires go so makes it more robust
[21:53] <WilldudeTablet> Oh Okay.
[21:53] <fsphil> how do antennas work. that's real magic
[21:54] <SpeedEvil> probability function waves
[21:54] <mfa298> come on then fsphil, tell us about the magic :p
[21:54] <SpeedEvil> or something
[21:54] <LokisSword> ah well, atleast thsi hobby has made me re-use a load of stuff that was gaining dust :D atom netbook, e220 3g dongle, usb gps dongle ... see I knew it would all come in handy one day *cough*

[21:57] <fsphil> PC104 FTW
[21:58] <SpeedEvil> I have thought of a zx81

[21:58] <arko> sup eroomde
[21:58] <eroomde> fsphil: they are good car dash pcs
[21:58] <fsphil> I've got a C64 motherboard for it, but I'm not sure if I wanna risk it
[21:58] <eroomde> just with 12V in
