[00:09] <KF7FER> So arko... if you're around, the fix to the LED issue I mentioned is http://pastebin.com/bGC8cDfQ (specifically it's in the else clause)
[00:09] <arko> ah cool
[00:09] <arko> thanks :)
[00:09] <KF7FER> no problem. I solved my problem too; I must have done something stupid because I started over with a fresh copy of the code and everything works

[00:15] <KF7FER> btw arko - are you using an LM60 temperature sensor? And you said you're running your board at 3.3v?
[00:15] <arko> yeah
[00:15] <arko> i think i will be adding that
[00:15] <arko> and something for voltage sensing
[00:15] G8KNN-Jon (~Jon@cpc1-cmbg10-0-0-cust144.5-4.cable.virginmedia.com) left irc: Ping timeout: 246 seconds
[00:16] <KF7FER> ok. I'm doing voltage sensing and you'll need to modify the code (it's hardcoded for 5v) in sensors_avr.cpp
[00:16] <KF7FER> but the temperatures reported by the LM60 seem off
[00:18] <KF7FER> FWIW http://pastebin.com/29iuyEUp has the fix for reporting VIN (it's the F_CPU check)
[00:18] <KF7FER> seems to work for 5v and 3.3v boards (as you'd hope ;-) )
[00:19] <KF7FER> well it works if you're running your 3.3v board at < 16MHz
[00:21] <arko> oh i was going to write my own sensor part
[00:21] <arko> code*
[00:21] <KF7FER> oh ok. Well the code does support reporting VIN already
[00:22] <KF7FER> seems to work ok
[00:31] <KF7FER> or maybe you were talking about a different temperature sensor?

[07:27] <eroomde> it has always been a bit of a black box to me
[07:27] <arko> odd choice of words they have
[07:29] <eroomde> i only ever really thought of it as a more complicated way of flashing chips

[07:41] <M0TEK> correct
[07:41] <N6ARA> cool
[07:41] <N6ARA> im gonna hang out then :)
[07:42] <M0TEK> N6ARA: you're probably (well definitely) much more advanaced than me in matters of hardware language and will think this all quite simple but i've found fpga4fun.com
[07:42] <M0TEK> and it's great!
[07:42] <M0TEK> i'm going into work today to spend the day playing
[07:42] <N6ARA> oh it's my favorite
[07:42] <N6ARA> great place
[07:42] <N6ARA> lots of fun games there
[07:42] <N6ARA> and projects
[07:42] <M0TEK> my dev board has 8 binary switching, 8 LEDS, and 4 push buttons
[07:42] <M0TEK> i think their means i can make an altair 8800 on it
[07:42] <N6ARA> Basys?
[07:43] <M0TEK> Nexys2
[07:43] <N6ARA> ah!
[07:43] <N6ARA> nice
[07:43] <N6ARA> digilent
[07:43] <N6ARA> i had to buy a spartan3e starter board for class
[07:43] <M0TEK> and my GPS board signals breakout header wis cooinceidently a compatible pinout to the nexys 6x2 breakout headers
[07:43] <N6ARA> but im stuck in hell because one day i thought the idea of installing win 8 would be a good idea >_<
[07:43] <M0TEK> 2 power, 2 gnd, 8xi/o
[07:44] <M0TEK> this is spartan 3e
[07:44] <M0TEK> the nexys2
[07:44] <M0TEK> and ise works quite happily on ubuntu
[07:44] <M0TEK> and the digilent tools work fine for jtag, though i am going to switch to FPGALink
[07:44] <M0TEK> because it looks fantastic
[07:44] Nick change: number10 -> M0MDB
[07:45] <M0TEK> so it's basically jtag using the common cypress chips, then provides some vhdl and host pci api to do high speed comms over usb once you've configured
[07:45] <M0TEK> up to about 35MB/s
[07:45] <M0TEK> which is perfect for raw gps logging and so on
[07:46] <N6ARA> yeah, im not shocked it works fine, im 100% sure now it's an os issue for me

[07:47] <N6ARA> whats the gps rf front end going to be?
[07:47] <M0TEK> 16GB when installed though!
[07:47] <N6ARA> or is it gps data from a ublox?
[07:47] <N6ARA> yeah
[07:47] <N6ARA> its stupid
[07:47] <M0TEK> it won't be going in an ubuntu VM on my macbook air
[07:47] <M0TEK> the front end chip is the max2769
[07:47] Nick change: RichiH_ -> RichiH
[07:48] <M0TEK> it basically is a local oscillator which downconverts to a centre freq of about 4MHz (but adjustable)
[07:48] <M0TEK> has a few bandpass filter options
[07:48] <M0TEK> and samples it at up to 3bits

[07:49] <jcoxon> Robint91, i'll turn on the predictor
[07:49] <M0TEK> it runs fine

[07:49] <M0TEK> yes
[07:49] <N6ARA> wait thats it?
[07:49] <M0TEK> well, made
[07:49] <M0TEK> this is hardware v2
[07:49] <N6ARA> really?
[07:49] <M0TEK> yes
[07:49] <Robint91> M0TEK, nice, with what?
[07:50] <M0TEK> that's all i did
[07:50] <M0TEK> well i had to install the digitelnt jtag stuff
[07:50] <M0TEK> but that was similarly easy
[07:50] <N6ARA> does it work over vmware?
[07:50] <M0TEK> Robint91: a maxim front end chip

[07:54] <M0TEK> Robint91: but the v2 will be a bit nicer. I'm making a little usb stick digital front end and rewriting the software to make it work real time (but on a laptop or something)
[07:54] <M0TEK> http://i.imgur.com/BOpB0uI.png
[07:54] <M0TEK> that's how far i've got with the layout (just the usb chip end layed out so far really!)
[07:55] <Robint91> M0TEK, nice I guess it will use a FPGA/CPLD and FT2232H?
[07:55] <Robint91> or something more microcontrollery?
[07:55] <M0TEK> i am more interested in offline reconstruction because you can get 1kHz positions out, and do sensor fusion with inertial and other nice things
[07:55] <N6ARA> oh
[07:55] <N6ARA> which one is the fpga?
[07:55] Habjoe (Habjoe@host86-179-71-191.range86-179.btcentralplus.com) joined #highaltitude.
[07:55] <M0TEK> Robint91: yep, and FT232H, and the thing in the middle is a cpld that just repacks the gps front end chip output to somethat that plays nicely with the FT232's FIFO parallel interface
[07:56] <M0TEK> top right is the front end chip, bottom right is an xmega which i'm actually not using because i can do the spi config of the front end chip with the ft232 in spi mode
[07:56] <M0TEK> so that's going to go
[07:56] <Robint91> M0TEK, very nice, will this get more performance as a intergrated module?
[07:56] <M0UPU> balloons up
[07:56] <M0TEK> Robint91: i certainly hope so!
[07:57] <Robint91> M0TEK, very nice
[07:57] <M0TEK> we're implementing more sophisticated tracking than you usually get on integrated modules
[07:57] <Robint91> M0TEK, I'm building a SDT for 70cm for ballooning
[07:57] <Robint91> with a STM32F4 and a http://www.rfmd.com/CS/Documents/RFMD2081DS.pdf
[07:58] <N6ARA> oh neat
[07:58] <N6ARA> starting xilinx download now
[07:58] <M0TEK> kalman filters instead of PLLs to track the frequency and code phase, and then a kalman filter to use the fact that you know what to expect from each of the sats relative to the other sats (IN TERMS OF TIMINGS)
[07:58] <jcoxon> launch!
[07:58] <N6ARA> wow
[07:58] <N6ARA> dude thats cool!

[08:24] <G8KNN-Jon> CHEAPO probably 20dB weaker than NSE
[08:24] <M0UPU> ah thats why I can't see it
[08:25] <M0UPU> was getting confused
[08:25] <M0UPU> oh I see it
[08:25] <M0UPU> wow that is faint
[08:25] <M0MDB> I tuned into cheapo a little earlier - would decode with default settings
[08:25] <M0MDB> not sure if that was just me
[08:25] <domlin-chase> those predictions do not look good.
[08:25] <G0DJA> Decode but again no dist/bearing display in FLDigi so don't know if I'm point antenna in right deirection :(

[08:47] <arclight23> do y'all mostly use omnis for receiving?
[08:47] <M0MDB> most not all
[08:47] <Hix> there seem to be a mix arclight23
[08:47] <GMT> 'Flight' box should say NSE1: CHEAPO, NSE and 'Payload' box should say NSE (NSE)

[08:48] <G0DJA> arclight23 I use a 14 ele beam

[08:50] <Robint91> the stablilty of the transmitter isn't that good
[08:50] <fsphil_MI0VIM> they're sensitive to temperature changes
[08:51] <fsphil_MI0VIM> there must not be enough insulation on this one
[08:51] <Robint91> also I find that a shift of 340Hz decodes better

[08:52] <M0UPU> close domlin-chase
[08:52] <M0UPU> what balloon is it ?
[08:54] <G0DJA> Strange - on good decoades the boxes with lat/long change but the dist and bearing seem stck on same values

[10:32] <M0UPU> ok
[10:32] <M0UPU> look north
[10:32] <M0UPU> and up
[10:32] <G0DJA> I've set mine to 160 (max) and closed and restarted program and don't notice any difference...
[10:33] <henk_> hmm maybe has this version no waterfall anymore
[10:33] <junderwood_M0JCU> does anyone have a dial freq for Aura? The radio will be unattended so I'm hoping it will catch it on the way up
[10:33] <GMT> I'm using same version; has waterfall
[10:33] <G0DJA> Dropping to 100 makes a slight difference so guess the range is not that great?
[10:33] <mfa298> henk_: are you starting the HAB version instead of the non HAB version
[10:33] <Willdude123> In the java decoder, is it possible to change the input without it crashing now?
[10:33] <Hix_> 434.650 junderwood_M0JCU
[10:33] <M0UPU> domlin I'd head back up to the A265
[10:33] <junderwood_M0JCU> That accurate? Wow
[10:34] <henk_> hab version yes
[10:34] <M0UPU> via Willingford lane
[10:34] <M0UPU> henk_ did you post a screen shot ?
[10:34] <G0DJA> henk_ you should see a waterfall
[10:34] <henk_> no\

[10:40] <domlin> how the hell are we still decoding with no waterfall haha
[10:42] <jcoxon> now everyone turns their antennas towards Malvern...
[10:42] <henk_> na still no waterfull
[10:42] <henk_> fall
[10:42] <henk_> then not
[10:42] <cuddykid> probably be able to hear it from here (north of worcs) - I'll tune in
[10:42] <Steffanx> LOL, that sounds way too dutch henk_ "then not" :P
[10:43] <jcoxon> henk_, we need a screenshot really to help you
[10:43] <GMT> just checked NOTAMs ... NSE launch will only take place if balloon/payload goes northeast! Errrm!
[10:43] <henk_> haha
[10:44] <mfa298> well if you read your compass backwards that's close to north east :p

[10:48] <gonzo_> my notal had similar type restrictions. And the surface winds were acceptable. High up it was a different matter. But as the restriction was to avoid local airspace, I expected that a chang in direction aove that airspace was not an issue
[10:48] <jcoxon> henk_, does printscreen still work?
[10:48] <Morseman> henk_ I use dropbox to move screenshots between PCs
[10:49] <GMT> Just phoned Domlin and gave him details of landing spot; they're still receiving signal and just driving to landins spot

[10:55] <fsphil> will is a registered nick, you won't be able to use it :)
[10:55] <W1LL> Thought so.
[10:56] <W1LL> Never mind.
[10:56] <W1LL> Willdude123_WILL is a bit lengthy anyway.
[10:56] <fsphil> w1ll is too, but it doesn't seem to be protected
[10:57] <W1LL> Maybe it expired?
[10:57] <mfa298> you don't have to change your nick to match what's in dl-fldigi, only a few people do that
[10:57] <W1LL> But I prefer W1ll.
[10:57] <mfa298> I think by default registered nicks aren't protected, it's something you have to turn on
[10:58] <W1LL> So how do I steal it?
[10:58] <W1LL> :)
[10:59] <fsphil> registered 5 years ago, last used 18 weeks ago
[10:59] <fsphil> so you can't :)
[10:59] <mfa298> read the freenode FAQ, however if it's not being used you have to wait until its expired. If it is being used you'll find you get kicked off next time the person logs in
[11:00] <SpeedEvil> or pay the person
[11:00] <qyx_> just choose something else
[11:00] <W1LL> We consider IRC nicks expired after they have not been used for 10 weeks plus (at staffer discretion) one additional week per full year of registration, up to a maximum of five additional weeks. Nicks which are at least two weeks old and which were last used less than two hours after their creation are also considered to be expired.
[11:01] <W1LL> Sorry for the long paste.
[11:01] <W1LL> So it should have expited.
[11:01] <henk_> ggrrrrrrrrrrrr mail is not send dam
[11:01] <W1LL> *expired.
[11:02] <fsphil> there you go, worth asking

[11:03] <mfa298> The key phrase in there is "We consider". i.e. they might consider it expired but the system may not. I think there's another entry about what to do if you want to take over a nick that is considered exired
[11:04] <mfa298> I think the actual DB is only cleaned up from time to time so it might require a manual process to actually expire it
[11:04] <Steffanx> Yeah, that's the next question mfa298 :)

[11:05] <chrisg7ogx> tks mfa298
[11:06] <SpeedEvil> you need to get an admin to drop it

[12:25] <junderwood_M0JCU> fsphil, it depends on the radio
[12:25] <junderwood_M0JCU> for FCD - yes
[12:25] <fsphil> don't tune your SDR directly to the frequency
[12:26] <fsphil> tune it +/- some amount

[12:58] <Darkside> scrape off the soldermask

[12:59] <Hix> they seem to have the E400 chip in them too http://i.imgur.com/tnNTTLY.jpg
[12:59] <Darkside> e4000 isn't the be all and end all
[12:59] <Darkside> R820T is better afaik
[12:59] <Darkside> ayway
[12:59] <Darkside> anyway
[12:59] <Hix> the one I use is R820T
[12:59] <Darkside> you can scrape off the soldermask and get to the ground plane easy enough
[13:00] <Hix> i heard E4000 was better, bought both for <£20
[13:00] <Hix> so you're saying not to worry about the sides not being mounted Darkside
[13:00] <Hix> i could epoxy it to secure it
[13:00] <Darkside> you want the ground connections soldered down, of course
[13:01] jiffe1 (~jiffe1@ joined #highaltitude.
[13:01] <Hix> sure on the end but the sides are a few mm away from the connector
[13:01] <Darkside> what i'm saying is to do that, you scrape the soldermask off where the ground pins go, and soldered them down
[13:01] <Darkside> thats why ou use the long conenctor
[13:01] <Darkside> so it protrudes out the case
[13:01] <Hix> just epoxy the sides to secure?
[13:01] <Darkside> http://rfhead.net/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/hwnbQ.jpg
[13:01] <Darkside> look at what i do there

[13:06] <Randomskk> oh cool
[13:06] <Randomskk> neither end of the coax has the adapter on?
[13:07] <jcoxon> it has an adapter but its still n-type
[13:07] <jcoxon> is it a filter perhaps
[13:07] <Randomskk> might be an n-n coupler
[13:07] <jcoxon> yeah

[13:39] <Hix> mfa298: extra files?
[13:39] <mfa298> I've used sdr-nightly, sdr-nightly-rtl and theres another dll from something else you need as well
[13:40] <mfa298> if you havn't already you'll also need to do drivers with zadig
[13:40] <Geoff-G8DHE> SDR-Raduio is much nicer ! I switched about a month ago well worth it
[13:40] <Geoff-G8DHE> *Radio
[13:40] <Hix> i've set up the Newsky TV28T RTL 2832U / R820T
[13:40] <Hix> which works fine so believe I've added everything
[13:40] <mfa298> I'm mostly using sdr-radio as well these days,
[13:41] <Hix> though there may be different files for the 2832 / E4000?
[13:41] <mfa298> Hix: that probably means you've got all the bits for sdr#
[13:41] <Hix> is that win compatible?
[13:41] <Geoff-G8DHE> Its the multi-channel aspect that wins it for me
[13:41] <mfa298> but you might need to use zadig to setup new drivers for the e4000
[13:41] <Hix> ah yes win comp

[13:41] <mfa298> sdr-radio is windows only
[13:41] <G0DJA> I'm not showing up on receivers again. I think spacenear.us has me black listed :)
[13:42] <Hix> I'll try that, do i need to do anything else on sdr-radio?
[13:42] <Hix> in a bit of a hurry so i can catch flights to test
[13:42] <mfa298> the multiple vfo's and being able to change sound card on the fly are the best features in it.
[13:42] <craag> wow. so. many. trackers!
[13:42] <Geoff-G8DHE> Ypu need the normal viag loader to put the DLL in place that's all

[13:43] <Hix> viag loader Geoff-G8DHE ?
[13:43] <G0DJA> FLDigi reckons that it's at 752730 !!
[13:43] <Geoff-G8DHE> To put the USB interface software in place same as SDR#
[13:43] <mfa298> Hix: what ever software you use you'll need to do the drivers with zadig (and that will be per device), for sdr-radio you'll need the software and from the same site some files for the rtl dongle
[13:44] <Babs__> quick one - hab antennas - any advantage for braided over solid core wire?

[13:47] <Babs__> eroomde, yes on the balloon. I didn't think so either but thought I'd check - these are for the radials, I was going to do the antenna in braided anyway given i will bend and tape in the horizontal plane until launch, and wouldnt want it fracturing when i unwound it

[14:01] <Darkside> you see, we though tthat about the launch 2 weekends go too
[14:01] <Darkside> but then we found out the sat imagery was 4 years old
[14:01] <Darkside> and there was a new gum plantation there
[14:02] <jcoxon> not expecting a gum plantation :-)
[14:02] <jcoxon> Darkside, could you add your pico data to the pico data wiki page
[14:03] <Darkside> i did
[14:03] <nommo> n00b question: how is AURA calling home? HABJOE-GPRS is the receiver - so I am guessing via GPRS somehow?
[14:03] <jcoxon> Darkside, thanks!
[14:04] <jcoxon> interesting that gas was still inside
[14:04] <Darkside> it was fun though
[14:04] <Darkside> i got to make a bunch of phone calls with helium voice
[14:04] <jcoxon> need to get 0.8m/s
[14:04] <Darkside> the tear was tiny
[14:04] <Darkside> i put a pic on twitter
[14:05] <Darkside> maybe 6mm long, near the neck
[14:05] <jcoxon> i guess just enough to release the pressure
[14:05] <Darkside> yup
[14:05] <jcoxon> then slow descent
[14:05] <Darkside> and drop the neck lift just below the weight of the payload i guess
[14:06] <Darkside> the balloon got a bit of rough handling on the way to the launch site
[14:06] <Darkside> filled on level 9 of a building (hackerspace)
[14:06] <Darkside> walked to the car, then driven to the launch site
[14:06] <Darkside> problem was we couldn't move the damn helium cylinder out of hackerspace

[18:04] <eroomde> alternatively you could reconnect it straight through the to serial comm on the pc like i think you did initially
[18:04] <WILLdude> Would I burtn out an led with 5v?
[18:04] <eroomde> you'd have to add the correct current limiting resistor
[18:04] <G0DJA> WILLdude - If you mean the outputs from the Arudino then yes. The LEDs should flash at the rate that the RTTY is being sent
[18:05] <henk_> strange sound on 434.075
[18:05] <eroomde> it's easy to work out the value, i can tell you how
[18:05] <WILLdude> G0DJA: It's not rtty.
[18:05] <henk_> no something else
[18:05] <G0DJA> WILLdude use a dropper resistor in series with the LED
[18:05] <WILLdude> Fuck that was bright.
[18:05] <G0DJA> WILLdude - same thing, if it takes the outputs high then low the LED will flash

[20:49] <malgar> Upu: very nice.. I'm thinking about 80g payload and about 25" latex party balloon. Do you think that it could fly?
[20:49] <malgar> :)
[20:49] <Upu> 80g is probably just a little too much
[20:49] <Upu> half that and you're in business
[20:50] <mfa298> WILLdude: if the raw data is right but what you're code displays at the end is wrong then there's an error in your code, if the raw data is wrong you might not have a good fix.

[20:56] <iain__g4sgx> Tnx...lol I meant Tx. ;)
[20:56] <Upu> good :)
[20:56] <Upu> yes you can make it do RTTY
[20:56] <Upu> and its got a TCXO in it so its very stable
[20:57] <Upu> I have a circuit for it if you want to take a look
[20:57] <malgar> do you think that a NOTAM is necessary even with such small payloads?
[20:57] <malgar> like 40-80 g
[20:57] <Upu> the only downside to it is they are generally expensive however I'm working on getting them in the shop
[20:57] <Upu> malgar in the UK its the balloon size
[20:57] <iain__g4sgx> The PIC I wanna use has a programmable voltage reference out, (for A-D converters), will make a good input for the Tx and make multi modes by software possible.
[20:58] <malgar> Upu: what's the limit there?
[20:58] <Upu> if you can keep everything in imaginary 2 meter sphere you don't need a notam
[20:58] <Upu> check Wiki for rules
[20:58] <Upu> iain__g4sgx
[20:58] <Upu> yes likely if you can keep it accurate I put a DAC on mine 1 sec let me dig circuit out
[20:58] <mfa298> WILLdude: the important question is do you know why it wasn't working. (randomly changing things until it works isn't usually the right way to fix it)

[21:36] <chrisstubbs> still dont get how upu got more strings than us in the other side of the country, while we were driving right underneath it the whole time
[21:36] <arko> were you guys able to determine why cheapo kept breaking?

[22:21] <chrisstubbs> nice and sunny too
[22:21] <Lunar_Lander> hm
[22:21] <Lunar_Lander> GOD!
[22:21] <Hix> i got up early, but had a hangover that would fell a tree so dozed some more
[22:21] <Lunar_Lander> xD
[22:22] <Hix> best plan in my case
[22:22] <chrisstubbs> is that from your sdr failure induced pub trip?

[22:22] <S_Mark> out of interest, how long was your chain
[22:22] <Hix> nope, that was a food and beer trip
[22:23] <Hix> last night was a good old fashioned binge drink
[22:23] <Hix> not wise at >30
[22:23] <chrisstubbs> S_Mark.. balloon - 10m - parachute - 5m - payload - 5m - payload
[22:23] <chrisstubbs> but dont do that
[22:23] Action: Hix never learns
[22:23] <chrisstubbs> as the balloon swung down and tangled up in the payload
[22:23] <Hix> looked a bit of a mess in the vid
[22:23] <chrisstubbs> i did exactly the opposite of what i was told to do haha
[22:23] <Lunar_Lander> S_Mark,
[22:24] <S_Mark> yeah our longer one is at the bottom
[22:24] <S_Mark> Hi Lunar
[22:24] <Lunar_Lander> Chain A unit of length equal to 66 feet or 22 yards (approximately 20 m). There are 80 chains in one standard mile.
[22:24] <Lunar_Lander> hi
[22:24] <Lunar_Lander> :)
[22:24] <Lunar_Lander> see there
[22:24] <Lunar_Lander> xD
[22:24] <S_Mark> ha thanks
[22:24] <Lunar_Lander> xD
[22:24] <Lunar_Lander> that is how the railway defines a chain
[22:24] <S_Mark> ah I see
[22:24] <S_Mark> !
[22:24] <Lunar_Lander> :)
[22:25] <Lunar_Lander> the RAIB is funny
[22:25] <Lunar_Lander> well there was an accident
[22:25] <Lunar_Lander> with a young woman being hit by a train and then they decided to make people aware of not hearing trains due to headphones
[22:25] <Lunar_Lander> and they got a rapper to make a TV ad
[22:25] <Hix> ddep joy - install wine and see it getting comicsans font
[22:25] <Hix> ffs
[22:25] <Lunar_Lander> and the report said that
[22:25] <Lunar_Lander> and Rapper was defined at the end in the glossary
[22:26] <Lunar_Lander> "Rapper - A Person who performs Rap music"
[22:26] <Lunar_Lander> xD
[22:28] <Hix> something is going to get launched here tonight - I have a feeling it will be an EasyCAP
[22:28] <S_Mark> any other tips that you learnt today for the first time chrisstubbs?
[22:29] <Hix> launch later ;p
[22:29] <chrisstubbs> maps help
[22:29] <chrisstubbs> if there is no 3g
[22:29] <Hix> offline maps ftw :)
[22:29] <S_Mark> paper maps?
[22:29] <Lunar_Lander> can I contribute something that I learned on my first flight?
[22:29] <chrisstubbs> yeah or downloaded
[22:29] <Hix> how you getting on with them chrisstubbs
[22:29] <chrisstubbs> 31/300 so far :P
[22:29] <chrisstubbs> cheers hix
[22:29] <Lunar_Lander> actually what chrisstubbs meant is
[22:29] <Hix> my fat pipe eh :)
[22:29] <Lunar_Lander> take a sextant and all that stuff with you
[22:30] <Lunar_Lander> get rid of that modern GPS stuff
[22:30] <Lunar_Lander> eats batteries
[22:30] <Lunar_Lander> XD

[22:31] <chrisstubbs> just short the lithiums in morse and hope they release enough magic smoke
[22:31] <Lunar_Lander> xD
[22:32] <S_Mark> so just to confirm, the neck lift is correct when it 'just' lifts off the extra weight?
[22:32] <Lunar_Lander> yes
[22:32] <Lunar_Lander> but be careful
[22:32] <Lunar_Lander> wind spoils the measurement
[22:32] <S_Mark> ok
[22:32] <Lunar_Lander> also, what I learned is
[22:32] <Lunar_Lander> don't land in rivers
[22:33] <Hix> S_Mark, if i can I'll try and get a pdf OS 1:25k of the landing area to you
[22:33] <chrisstubbs> All my photos came out like this :( http://i.imgur.com/ESZwOE3.png
[22:33] <Hix> hopefully you can download it easily enough
[22:33] <S_Mark> that would be great Hix thank you
[22:33] <Lunar_Lander> chrisstubbs, XD!
[22:33] <fsphil> Lunar_Lander: but you got it recovered :p
[22:33] <Lunar_Lander> yea :)
[22:33] <S_Mark> Ice on the straw?
[22:33] <Lunar_Lander> S_Mark, yeah don't have anything in front of the camera
[22:33] <fsphil> so you've got 100% river recovery rate
[22:33] <Lunar_Lander> :)
[22:33] <chrisstubbs> and the istockphoto watermark
[22:34] <Lunar_Lander> ROFL
[22:34] <Hix> chrisstubbs, bit of t-cut on them pics and they'll be fine :)
[22:34] <S_Mark> was that camera facing out or down?
[22:34] <chrisstubbs> that was out, but it swung a lot
[22:34] <chrisstubbs> and span a lot
[22:34] <S_Mark> we have a video out and a camera down
[22:34] <S_Mark> will see what happens
[22:34] <chrisstubbs> nice plan
[22:35] <chrisstubbs> those gopros give some amazing footage
[22:35] <chrisstubbs> this 808 cam is crap in comparison
[22:35] <S_Mark> yeah, traded for weight though
[22:35] <S_Mark> getting excited now lol
[22:35] <chrisstubbs> :D
[22:35] <Hix> to be fair no housing they are pretty light
[22:36] <chrisstubbs> 40x the cost though
[22:36] <Hix> more risk to lose too
[22:36] <Hix> or get robbed if you don't recover quickly
[22:36] <Lunar_Lander> yea

[22:37] <mfa298> failing the paper maps if you've got android get RMaps, select OS maps in the menus and then tell it to download the areas you're interested in (my experience is it works better on a tablet than a phone)

[22:37] <Upu> he put a hot fix in place
[22:37] <mfa298> although I do prefer real paper maps, you can see so much more on them
[22:37] <chrisstubbs> did he have to edit the proper code, or just bodge the flight doc

[22:39] <S_Mark> night Upu, cheers for all the help, hopefully will all come together tomorrow
[22:40] <G0DJA> How come the one flight that I could copy crashes, yet the ones that everyone else receives better than I can goes on ward and up ward?
[22:40] <fsphil> I only managed NSE today
[22:41] <S_Mark> what happened with the other flights after NSE today, all ok?
[22:41] <chrisstubbs> yeah, was habjoe recovered?
[22:41] <chrisstubbs> *aura
[22:42] <G0DJA> Most of the ones I tried were either 50/50 at best or 10% - until the last one where I got nearly 100% decode until it stopped working...
[22:42] <mattbrejza> i would assume so as his gprs updater has stopped
[22:43] <mfa298> hmmm, after all the issues cuddykid had with corrupt SD cards on his Pi, I seem to have had the same issue
[22:44] <chrisstubbs> hope so

[22:51] <Hix> not sure I want to plug it into anything at that level

[22:57] <chrisstubbs> spoke to the locals and they asked the landowner
[22:57] <S_Mark> ah ok
[22:57] <S_Mark> was all ok?
[22:58] <LokisSword> hmm, just found an RFM02 in the old transmitter for a energy monitor
[22:58] <LokisSword> anyone used one in a HAB?
[22:58] <chrisstubbs> LokisSword,
[22:58] <chrisstubbs> i have taken one out of an energy monitor too, but been told they are not much good for hab
[22:58] <chrisstubbs> may do a experimental flight with a few different low cost transmitters one day

[22:59] <chrisstubbs> yeah no problems mark
[22:59] <chrisstubbs> yagi would have been helpful when we were deciding where we thought it had landed
[23:00] <S_Mark> yeah what were your methods?
[23:00] <S_Mark> before the sim car
[23:00] <S_Mark> d
[23:00] <chrisstubbs> well we tried to park right under the flight path close to the landing point
[23:00] <chrisstubbs> and got it on the radio ok when it landed
[23:01] <chrisstubbs> just no 3G to look up where the coordinates were on a map. And hamGPS was pointing us in different dirrections on each phone
[23:01] <S_Mark> ah right I see.
[23:01] <S_Mark> sounds like a good plan though
[23:02] <S_Mark> We should have all networks covered, so am hoping for some 3Gness
[23:02] <chrisstubbs> we had O2 (giffgaff) and orange
[23:02] <chrisstubbs> nout on either of them in some places
[23:02] <S_Mark> Ah ok.
[23:02] <S_Mark> hmm that is the prob
