[07:42] <fsphil> is yorkshire launch still happening?
[07:42] <UpuWork> nah they don't have a parachute
[07:42] <UpuWork> I offered them a 36" sat here now
[07:42] <costyn> UpuWork: couldn't they have made their own?
[07:42] <daveake> Couldn't they buy one?
[07:42] <fsphil> wouldn't that be the second thing on their list of things to get a long time ago?
[07:43] <UpuWork> it didn't turn up on time
[07:43] <costyn> Royal Fail?
[07:43] <UpuWork> dunno
[07:43] <UpuWork> offered them a bright pink 36"
[07:43] <UpuWork> who could resist ?
[07:43] <costyn> who would turn down that?
[07:43] <mfa298> sounded a bit like they went for the slightly cheaper option of buying from outside the uk.
[07:44] <daveake> They could go with their 24". It's not as if there's anything in Yorkshire they should worry about hitting at 8m/s
[07:44] <UpuWork> not sure they would be launching anyway
[07:44] <UpuWork> weather is nasty
[07:44] <UpuWork> personally I'd go with the 24" given where they are launching and predicted landing
[07:44] <UpuWork> just leave the SPOT tracker on the ground

[09:21] <UpuWork> no mattbrejza
[09:21] <UpuWork> 9 days min normally
[09:21] <arko> Love the background
[09:21] <mattbrejza> oh ok
[09:21] <UpuWork> got one in 6 days which is really unusual
[09:21] <eroomde> arko: it's my mouse mat
[09:21] <UpuWork> but average is 9 can take 17 days I suspect customs hold them sometimes

[09:25] <costyn> or might've gotten lost in all the discussion on drag
[09:26] <UpuWork> 434Mhz is that considered ISM for you guys ?

[09:35] <UpuWork> I could do with confirming it
[09:35] <mattbrejza> what country?
[09:36] <mfa298> I was just trying to grep my logs to see if I could find a reference of at least what was said.
[09:36] <mfa298> I'm pretty sure it's not ISM in canada so it's probably not a region 2 thing.
[09:37] <mattbrejza> but you can use it as amateur radio?
[09:38] <UpuWork> States
[09:38] <mfa298> I think the bit I was remembering is in http://habhub.org/zeusbot/logs_highlighted/highaltitude.log.20130503.html at 18:52
[09:39] <mfa298> [18:52] <nigelvh> 434 is an ISM band
[09:39] <mfa298> [18:52] <nigelvh> You can use that here
[09:39] <UpuWork> yes
[09:39] <UpuWork> I could do with some citation though
[09:39] <UpuWork> ping nigelvh
[09:40] <mattbrejza> could look at the FCC part 15 regs
[09:40] <mfa298> agreed citation is always good.
[09:41] <mfa298> probably worth having a page about ISM frequencies on the wiki at some point (like the arps page).

[09:47] <Darkside> ISM bands aren't global
[09:47] <UpuWork> I know
[09:47] <Darkside> in australia it isn't even called an ISM band
[09:47] <Darkside> its called the LIPD class licence

[10:53] <craag> WUSAT 868MHz payload is in the RSGB newsletter
[10:54] <mfa298> x-f: I've seen other people state that summer starts at the beginning of may with 21st June being mid-summer's day
[10:59] <x-f> mfa298, i meant the astronomical summer, but for your latitude (and island) it may be the start of the meteorological summer in May
[10:59] <Arithmetic> summer may be sort of redefined as the climate goes chaotic from carbon emissions
[11:00] <Arithmetic> will be interesting to see what happens linguistically to the 'warmer weather' concept
[11:00] <mfa298> or at present summer might just get ignored
[11:02] <Arithmetic> agriculture and various practices humans are interleaved with now, correspond to seasonal and other notions with linguistic counterparts
[11:06] <x-f> come to the North, visit the Baltic states, we will have +26 on the weekend and next week, no rain, no clouds, remember to use sunscreen for UV protection :)

[11:29] <griffonbot> Received email: Alan Oakden "Re: [UKHAS] First Launch - Sci1"
[11:44] <kokey> I usually expected it to be predictably warm in the UK from about 15 June onwards
[11:44] <kokey> but even that changed
[11:45] <kokey> I remember moving to the UK since after a hot two years between Johannesburg, Thailand and Singapore around the turn of the millenium, I thought I could do with something cooler
[11:45] <kokey> got to London, my first summer I got a tan and it went up to 36 degrees
[11:45] <kokey> all the shops sold out of fans
[11:45] <kokey> this was 2003
[11:46] <kokey> then that winter I thought I was being clever and bought myself an aircon cheap on ebay and the next summer I was like 'Bring it on!'
[11:46] <kokey> I ended up needing to use the aircon for only two days
[11:46] <SpeedEvil> hah
[11:47] <kokey> but then the next year, 2004, it also hit 36 degrees
[11:47] <SpeedEvil> I have this awesome air con that ensures it dpesn-t get too hot.
[11:47] <SpeedEvil> it's called Scotland.
[11:47] <kokey> actually we booked somewhere around Brecon beacons for the weekend of 16 June since we thought we can't rely on the weather and that part of wales is still quite nice in the rain
[11:48] <kokey> it was so hot and sunny that day that we had to stop the car and find some shade to hide under
[11:48] <kokey> SpeedEvil: yeah I should have just stuck it out in Edinburgh when I went that way
[11:48] <fsphil> SpeedEvil: more con than aircon? :)

[18:59] <chrisstubbs> Ah I stored there expected packet as an integer array and converted the reply bytes to their decimal ascii value for comparison

[19:23] <WILLdude> Hello
[19:24] <eroomde> hi WILLdude
[19:24] <eroomde> how are tricks?
[19:26] <WILLdude> Tricks?
[19:29] <eroomde> things
[19:29] <eroomde> and stuff
[19:30] <Upu> evening Mr Dude
[19:30] <Upu> how your tracker coming along ?
[19:31] <WILLdude> It's not really.
[19:31] <WILLdude> I've got sidetracked with other stuff.
[19:31] <Upu> anything interesting ?
[19:31] <WILLdude> BTC?
[19:31] <Upu> btc ?
[19:31] <WILLdude> Bitcoin
[19:32] <Upu> I wouldn't bother if I was you
[19:32] <WILLdude> nah.
[19:32] <WILLdude> I bought 0.1
[19:32] <WILLdude> Just to play with.
[19:32] <WILLdude> I'm investing it.
[19:32] <Upu> just a big ponzi scheme
[19:33] <WILLdude> https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Myths#It.27s_a_giant_ponzi_scheme
[19:33] <WILLdude> Lol
[19:33] <WILLdude> IDK much about the inner workings of it all.
[19:33] <Upu> whatever
[19:33] <WILLdude> :)
[19:33] <GadgetDroid> Upu: parcel arrived, thanks.
[19:33] <WILLdude> Yeah, I might give up on bitcoin.
[19:34] <Lunar_Lander> hello
[19:34] <Upu> oh hey Gadget-Mac
[19:34] <Upu> before I forget those PCB's have an error on the silkscreen
[19:34] <WILLdude> Cause I think I need to focus on staying alive before I worry about anything else.
[19:34] <Upu> so just connect RX to RX and TX to TX
[19:34] <Upu> rather than RX to TX etc
[19:34] <Lunar_Lander> Upu, soldered up the new GPS
[19:34] <Lunar_Lander> thanks again
[19:34] <Lunar_Lander> :)
[19:34] <Upu> welcome Lunar
[19:35] <Lunar_Lander> got a question on pico power supplies
[19:35] <Lunar_Lander> what do you suggest for these?
[19:35] <Lunar_Lander> for a 3.3V system
[19:35] <Upu> staying alive ? Thats easy isn't it ? Keep sucking the air in, eat drink and sleep
[19:35] <Lunar_Lander> xD
[19:35] <Upu> depends how you want to power it Lunar
[19:35] <Lunar_Lander> yea that is the thing
[19:35] <Lunar_Lander> lipoly? coin cells?
[19:35] <WILLdude> Upu: When you don't really feel like doing so, it's harder.
[19:36] <Lunar_Lander> are the 3.7V from the lipoly enough for a 3.3V regulator
[19:36] <daveake> depends
[19:36] <Upu> yeah just ensure its a very LDO
[19:36] <Upu> 250mV one
[19:36] <Upu> not much overhead
[19:37] <Upu> how to Lipos discharge ?
[19:37] <Upu> to=do
[19:37] <Lunar_Lander> LDO is that protection circuit?
[19:38] <zyp> no
[19:38] <KT5TK_QRL> Lunar: Use a TPS61201
[19:38] <Lunar_Lander> ah the reg
[19:38] <Lunar_Lander> datasheet says "LOW DROPOUT VOLTAGE (1V TYP.)"
[19:38] <daveake> too high
[19:38] <WILLdude> Pffffft
[19:38] <Upu> LDO = low drop out
[19:38] <Upu> so Lunar
[19:38] <Upu> if you put 3.7V in that
[19:38] <daveake> "Low" varies
[19:38] <Upu> you get 2.7V out
[19:38] <KT5TK_QRL> If you don't want to solder that small, use the breakout board from sparkfun
[19:38] <Lunar_Lander> ah
[19:38] <Upu> some of the very very low ones have a drop off 250mV
[19:38] <Lunar_Lander> ah
[19:38] <Lunar_Lander> one moment KT5TK1
[19:39] <Upu> so 3.3 + 0.25 = 3.55
[19:39] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[19:39] <Upu> which is very close to 3.7 of the cell so as it discharges and the voltage goes down things stop working
[19:39] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[19:39] <daveake> Your 3.7V battery will not be 3.7V all the time
[19:39] <daveake> Check the discharge curve
[19:39] <KT5TK_QRL> https://www.sparkfun.com/products/10255
[19:40] <daveake> And then check to see what happens when it's cold
[19:40] <Upu> yeah that board KT5TK is the same step up regulator I use
[19:40] <Lunar_Lander> thanks KT5TK_QRL found it a second ago
[19:41] <Lunar_Lander> daveake, yeah, there is some sort of initial drop
[19:41] <Lunar_Lander> at least in the energizer lithiums
[19:41] <daveake> All batteries drop voltage with use
[19:41] <daveake> You need to check the curve for the type you intend to use
[19:41] <Lunar_Lander> yeah
[19:41] <Lunar_Lander> one moment
[19:43] <Lunar_Lander> ok
[19:43] <Lunar_Lander> the sparkfun lipoly has no curve in the datasheet :(
[19:44] <Lunar_Lander> well
[19:44] <Lunar_Lander> thanks for the link KT5TK_QRL
[19:44] <Lunar_Lander> 200 mA for Upu's GPS, an atmega328 and a microSD slot
[19:44] <Lunar_Lander> should be OK
[19:44] <Lunar_Lander> will try it with the lab supply first though
[19:44] <Upu> 200mA ?
[19:44] <Lunar_Lander> the booster says "3.3V @ 200mA max"
[19:45] <Lunar_Lander> you could use the 5V and put a reg behind it, but does that make sense?
[19:46] <KT5TK_QRL> The booster is enough to drive all that above plus a RFM22
[19:47] <WILLdude> Upu: I've also got a relay board, might try to modify my lamp.
[19:48] <Lunar_Lander> thanks KT5TK_QRL
[19:48] <KT5TK_QRL> You should do energy saving features in the software though
[19:49] <KT5TK_QRL> Like switching off the transmitter when not in use etc.
[19:49] <WILLdude> Well, to add an arduino

[22:03] <Belleas> hi guys, right, so i have the arduino board, the ntx2 (thanks to Upu :) ), connected them and tested it with a SDR dongle (just sending the pings at the moment). Does anyone have an antenna they recommend?
[22:04] <Willdude123> Well.
[22:04] <Willdude123> There are 2 types of antenna.
[22:04] <Willdude123> Well
[22:04] <Willdude123> That's a lie.
[22:04] Hiena (~boreger@81.93.195.181.datatrans.hu) left irc: Remote host closed the connection
[22:04] <Belleas> Concretedog ... good luck but you should be fine. the tuturial is really well written :)
[22:04] <Willdude123> Actuallyt.
[22:04] <Belleas> lol
[22:04] <mattbrejza> you dont need any sort of antenna for testing
[22:04] <mattbrejza> for tracking over peoples a colinear is generally used
[22:04] <Willdude123> There are directional and omnidirectional, not really types but ho hum.
[22:04] <mattbrejza> *other
[22:05] <mattbrejza> and for chasing a magmount whip
[22:06] <Upu> yeah you don't need an antenna but you can just stick a piece of wire in there, 164mm if you want to be correct
[22:06] <Willdude123> Upu: Attending a local radio rally in a month or so.
[22:07] <Belleas> yeah, im good with the testing but wanted to know what people used on a live run?
[22:07] <Upu> oh cool Willdude123

[22:08] <Willdude123> You could make one :-)
[22:09] <Belleas> which is a whip as mattbrejzasuggested :)
[22:09] <Upu> no don't buy one :)

[22:09] <Upu> hang on see if I can find a btetter pic
[22:09] <Belleas> ive just got my head around the c code lol
[22:11] <Belleas> ok, thanks upu
[22:12] <concretedog> that a cool 1/4 wave, clever using the chassis mount screws for the ground planes...I might have a go at one of them
[22:12] <Belleas> i must admit though, making the tracker was great fun
[22:12] <Upu> ok for a 1/4 wave you just need some coax and some radials
[22:12] <Upu> which can just be the center of the coax
[22:12] <Upu> http://imgur.com/7YG1EiB
[22:12] <Upu> thats using some beefy connectors and cooper
[22:12] <Upu> doesn't need to be anything like that for a payload, generally I make them out of 5 pieces of single core wire
[22:13] <Upu> use straws for support
[22:13] <Upu> they are 164mm long each
[22:13] <chrisstubbs> Typical day at the office Upu? ;)
[22:13] <Upu> yup :)
[22:13] <eroomde> 165mm long causes the oceans to drain so be careful
[22:13] <Upu> yes what eroomde said
[22:14] <eroomde> we knew a guy once
[22:14] <eroomde> never saw him after he made that aerial

[22:36] <Lunar_Lander> well how did someone say it
[22:36] <Lunar_Lander> if you are working with physics it's like playing poker
[22:36] <fsphil> "it"
[22:37] <fsphil> like that

[22:37] <Lunar_Lander> but physics always will have a Royal Flush

[22:41] <fsphil> I'm pretty sure the universe has a cheat code

[22:46] <Arithmetic> i thought it was only my physics type friends who paid a lot of attention to poker and markets and that sort of thing. von neumann i just heard was into watching poker games in berlin or something though, wasn't he
[22:48] <Lunar_Lander> good question
[22:48] <Lunar_Lander> but what scientists don't do I think is playing lotto
[22:48] <Lunar_Lander> as the chances are slimmer than slim
[22:49] <fsphil> a tax for people bad at math
[22:50] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[22:50] <Lunar_Lander> btw did you hear that we in germany had a lotto error for the first time since 60 years or so?
[22:50] <Lunar_Lander> I think three of the 49 balls were stuck in the starting rack
[22:50] <SpeedEvil> I bought a ticket once, just in case a passing deity was feeling grateful
[22:51] <Lunar_Lander> and the lawyer guy didn't notice it for some strange reason
[22:51] <Lunar_Lander> so the drawing was done and cancelled later
[22:51] <Lunar_Lander> that guy must have been sleeping or so
[22:51] <Lunar_Lander> the whole control room must have been sleeping
[22:51] <Lunar_Lander> the machine is made of perspex and you can see everything
