[00:09] <arko> might need o work on my temp testing
[00:09] <arko> i think it got too cold
[00:09] <fsphil> that would make sense

[03:56] <arko> Habexpico came back to life before landing
[03:56] <arko> Yeah
[03:56] <arko> We are going to get it in 2 weeks
[03:57] <arko> It landed in a part of the Mohave that's easy to access
[03:58] <heathkid> I love the path it took around that mountain
[03:58] <heathkid> landed in a pretty flat area
[03:58] <heathkid> could have been a lot worse

[04:29] <Randomskk> looks like it might be another nice enough day at least
[04:29] <daveake> yep
[04:29] <Randomskk> none of this downpour-at-six business
[04:29] <daveake> Randomskk Do you ever sleep?
[04:29] <Randomskk> yes
[04:29] <daveake> I missed that
[04:29] <Randomskk> just I can't tell when any more
[04:29] <daveake> :)
[04:29] <Randomskk> most recently I collapsed at about 3pm, too tired to make any more progress
[04:29] <Randomskk> planned to sleep for a couple of hours but instead work up at 2130
[04:29] <Randomskk> so, I've been up since then :P
[04:29] <daveake> hah
[04:30] <daveake> oh dear :p
[04:30] <Randomskk> currently debating what to do. I've got _some_ results, and I can either try and get more the same way, or I can improve my code one of two ways and then get more, or I can stop here and start writing up the report
[04:30] <Randomskk> the results I already have cost a not insignificant amount of money on EC2
[04:31] <Randomskk> so idk
[04:31] <Randomskk> and also I'm running out of time to do the report :P
[04:32] <daveake> an answer suggests itself :)
[04:32] <Randomskk> indeed
[04:32] <Randomskk> the "stop here" option is appealing
[04:32] <Randomskk> but so is the endless need to make it better
[04:32] <Babs> Daveake! Good work
[04:32] <Babs> I hope you are bacon sandwiching
[04:32] <Randomskk> "just a little.. a little more... some more..."
[04:33] <daveake> soon
[04:33] <daveake> so soon
[04:33] <Randomskk> hehe
[04:33] <Randomskk> in an hour or so I'm gonna go start baking the bread for our brunch
[04:33] <Randomskk> and once it's proving, put the eggs in the sous vide
[04:33] <Randomskk> then get the bacon on the grill ;)
[04:34] <daveake> You see, bacon is always the answer
[04:34] <Randomskk> might work on improving it up until I go start baking
[04:34] <Randomskk> then leave it running the new code while I bake
[04:34] <Randomskk> then stop it when I get back and finish there
[04:34] <Babs> I'll put a slice in babshab for good karma
[04:35] <Randomskk> I have a handy notifier for how well it's doing even when I'm downstairs baking ;) https://www.dropbox.com/sc/n9p1zdyhatuk1lg/SbSCz7UqFq
[04:35] <daveake> oh .... dear...... :)
[04:36] <daveake> It's broke. It doesn't mention bacon at all
[04:36] <daveake> (and please don't go and add that)
[04:36] <Randomskk> haha
[04:36] <Randomskk> what it normally displays is much more fear inducing

[05:50] <number10> what did it taste like
[05:50] <G4MYS> yes hand UHF hand held can be fun too esp with pouring rain ain a car park! butthats another story!!
[05:51] <daveake> number10 It tasted of Lava rocks

[05:51] <Maxell> lol

[06:01] <number10> mrs10 want too chuffed when I checked at 6
[06:02] <Geoff-G8DHE> I thought that only appeared above the clouds, so maybe I'm floating above them

[06:10] <costyn> Maxell: yea it was a bit confusing moment with the car remote. We'd been playing with the remote too, seeing it appear on the spectrum with the sdr dongle. I thought we'd emptied the (rechargeable) battery of the admittedly old key. I don't know how that thing is still working after 13 years
[06:10] <steve_____> anyone know if BABSHAB is flying

[06:15] <Babs> 5kg
[06:16] <daveake> And payload weight inc chute?

[06:22] <fsphil> 1.3m/s
[06:22] <Maxell> eek
[06:23] <x-f> :/
[06:23] <Maxell> predictor doesnt like that
[06:23] <GMT> maybe its going thru the region where the wind changes direction
[06:23] <fsphil> the wind must be pushing it down a bit
[06:23] <costyn> Maxell: predictor assumes 5m/s climb rate
[06:23] <fsphil> the predictor uses the average ascent rate from the last few positions
[06:23] <Babs> It should start turning now
[06:23] <costyn> fsphil: I stand corrected
[06:24] <Maxell> yeah looks like it going to go south now
[06:24] <costyn> fsphil: could there really be that much downdraft?
[06:24] <fsphil> it's a big balloon
[06:24] Action: daveake increases his neck lift figure
[06:25] <fsphil> could be catching the air
[06:25] <costyn> I see the Cd doesn't change if you select different balloons on the calculator
[06:25] <fsphil> if it is the effect should become less as the air thins and the balloon gets bigger
[06:26] <steve_____> yay - got it
[06:26] <fsphil> making a lovely sine wave on the altitude graph though :)

[06:26] <daveake> The wind is changing direction - perhaps that distorts the balloon and/or provides a ceiling to climb through
[06:27] <costyn> fingers crossed
[06:27] <costyn> with an expensive DSLR on board it would be a shame if it floated
[06:27] <daveake> average so far about 2.6 m/s

[06:28] <Babs> Does it have a predicting landing anywhere that doesn't need a ferry? We are heading Wales way
[06:28] <fsphil> it would reduce your SNR a bit steve_____

[06:28] <costyn> Babs: hereford at the moment
[06:28] <steve_____> ok
[06:29] <costyn> Babs: still got quite a lot of dry land ahead of the predicted spot
[06:29] <Babs> Dry this side of the Irish Sea? Or should I be sending fsphil some petrol money?
[06:29] <costyn> Babs: yes, this side

[09:26] <NickB_> fsphil-MI0VIM, was comparable to 36" chute i think, there were a lot of cumuli so could be thermal activity
[09:27] <daveake-M6RPI> I have a plan on my phone too, but for chases I prefer to run a separate dongle with magmount 3G aerial on the roof
[09:27] <fsphil-MI0VIM> there's a spot on the mountain where I have LOS to home, and can probably connect to my Wifi
[09:27] <daveake-M6RPI> hah
[09:27] <fsphil-MI0VIM> but it's not got a good view east so not great for tracking

[09:38] <costyn> it's been engineered very well
[09:38] <henk_> that looks good

[09:40] <g7uxw> will the baloon be brought down at some time ??
[09:40] <fsphil-MI0VIM> we really need to invent a ground-to-balloon cut-down device

[09:41] <fsphil-MI0VIM> holding at T-60?
[09:41] <steve_____> got to about 32.5km hihg
[09:41] <G0MJW-PC> The HF signal did the same so assume a spurious
[09:41] <daveake-M6RPI> Very good result could have been a lot worse
[09:41] <fsphil-MI0VIM> yes
[09:41] <costyn> hope the chute works, otherwise 3.7kg is going to go down fast
[09:41] <fsphil-MI0VIM> 2000g balloon right? has anyone floated one of those?
[09:41] <steve_____> it id failing very fast

[09:43] <G0MJW-PC> Is that a pro+ or a pro Dave?
[09:43] <daveake-M6RPI> normal
[09:43] <PE7ER> maybe i should have changed receivers too
[09:43] <daveake-M6RPI> Just the Pro
[09:43] <G0MJW-PC> It is probably being desensed.

[09:54] <costyn> x-f: he's close yes
[09:54] <LazyL_M0LEP> Yes, but he can't update the car position.
[09:54] <x-f> great
[09:54] <G6SUQ> Babs is waiting for a more precise prediction, I will send to him when flight gets closer to ground
[09:54] <costyn> too bad, always fun to see balloon and chase car converge
[09:54] <G0MJW-PC> Not that much on a calm day.

[12:32] <Maxell> 1 km up already
[12:32] <Darkside> if they do have an ISM band input, then they should have a receive tone on

[12:44] <Babs> One of the gyros was still going when I found it 5 hours after launch
[12:44] <Geoff-G8DHE> Thats good
[12:44] <Geoff-G8DHE> be interesting to see how well that performed
[12:44] <chrisg7ogx> g8dhe what do you see?
[12:44] <Babs> Disappointing on the rate of climb but given that it burst at virtually the altitude forecast
[12:45] <Geoff-G8DHE> .072 decoding pictures as well
[12:45] <G0MJW-PC> Great images from Pie

[12:45] <Babs> So it might just be heavy payload and big balloon falling outside the normal stats
[12:45] <daveake-M6RPI> how's it going?
[12:45] <Babs> Anyway, lunch! Thanks again
[12:45] <daveake-M6RPI> ah Babs .. recover it?
[12:46] <Babs> And good luck daveake for this arvo
[12:46] <daveake-M6RPI> cheers
[12:46] <daveake-M6RPI> We'll leave in a while
[12:46] <daveake-M6RPI> Lovely day to launch :)

[12:49] <GMT> good signal, unable to decode anything, I hate SSDV!

[12:49] <G7UXW> ok

[13:45] <Wouter-[pa3weg]1> circles are the new lines
[13:45] <G4MYS> I have noted it was stronger when it was lower, due to where it is it was 66km at start and now is only 72km away
[13:46] <Wouter-[pa3weg]1> nice one image 150
[13:46] <Geoff-G8DHE> Interesting colour to 150
[13:46] <daveake-M6RPI> I should have made those smaller images larger - the boring ones download so quickly it doesn't have any images to choose from for the next one

[14:09] <PB0NER> decoding here, mostly CRC errors, uploaded some telemetry
[14:09] <g7ogxchris> maybe movement of balloon
[14:09] <Geoff-G8DHE> If it spins I wonder if we are seeing doppler ? The ground speed and climb aren't sufficent to see I don't thik
[14:10] <bertrik> 1 m/s speed at 435 MHz results in 1.45 Hz doppler
[14:10] <costyn> Geoff-G8DHE: wouldn't doppler mean the antenna isn't in the center of the spin?
[14:10] <Geoff-G8DHE> not sure how its oriented Dave ideas ?

[15:34] <daveake_mob> ok because looking at the prediction on the map it's not near here

[15:34] <cuddykid> i.e. - correct left/right
[15:35] <cuddykid> but I think more south
[15:35] <cuddykid> I should certainly have span around south as it descended

[17:08] <chrisstubbs> ublox chip just pinged out of my helping hands and flew accross the room

[17:09] <SpeedEvil> Did it float?
[17:09] <chrisstubbs> no :(
[17:09] <chrisstubbs> im scavanging parts off my first board to use on the 4th
[17:10] <russss> pics were great btw. Lovely day for it.
[17:10] <russss> I need to try and work out how to get my antenna back on my roof.
[17:10] <SpeedEvil> :)
[17:11] <russss> unfortunately my house is nice now so I can't get away with stringing RG213 around the place
[17:12] <russss> so I think I may box the radio and a raspberry pi up and mount it on the roof, then run ethernet
[17:12] <chrisstubbs> disguise it as fairy lights and put it up at christmas
[17:12] <russss> the problem is that it'll probably annoy me more than my gf
[17:13] <SpeedEvil> russss: You could use POE - but then you'd have to be careful about ravens.
[17:13] <russss> :/
[17:13] <russss> anyhow, you can't beat the signal loss on ethernet ;)
[17:13] <SpeedEvil> Well, depedns if it conducts any noise at 434

[17:13] <russss> I don't think PoE has enough juice to run the radio though
[17:14] <SpeedEvil> How quiet is the pi?
[17:14] <russss> I get the impression it's pretty noisy
[17:14] <russss> I may have to deploy copious tin foil and ferrites
[17:15] <G4MYS> Rus your aerial does not have to be a big white colinear - take two stiff bits of wire 6" 150mm long, feed inte middle to make a dipole it will be almost invisable and if its in the clear above buildings will work resonably well, experiment with a TV preamp in the feeder too if you like!
[17:16] <G4MYS> Or camp a hammy gropund plane less mobile vertical to your TV aerial Ive done that in the past and it works well!
[17:17] <G4MYS> do ask if you want to know more!
[17:17] <russss> yeah my previous aerial was a bodged-together SO239 quarter-wave which worked pretty well on top of 3m of PVC pipe on my roof
[17:17] <russss> but the main issue is simply getting the signal into the house now
[17:18] <russss> ideally without having to wire it up every time
[17:18] <G4MYS> will do it was in the clear, a big colinear may do better for ground comms but these things are up in the sky a big colinear works like a lighthouse and may not be best a simple dipole is what I use at work ! and that goes well!

[17:20] <chrisstubbs> thunderbirds-style coming up out of the chimney would be cool

[17:21] <SpeedEvil> G4MYS: Does it come with the appropriate soundtrack when you put it up?

[17:58] <Babs> It was unfortunate that i'd got the photos set up for a 2.5 hour flight, and it was up for 3.5 hours so i missed any photos at apogee
[17:58] <Babs> but in terms of the stabilisation, i've had a flick through them and out of 1600 there are none at an angle of more than 10 degrees to the horizontal, so that worked very well
[17:59] <Babs> so that aspect worked well
[17:59] <LazyL_M0LEP> Good.
[17:59] <Babs> Uploading the video of it at the top and then bursting, but its 250 megs so is taking a while
[18:00] <Babs> Everyone was absolute stars getting up to track it, it would have been a nightmare for me to do it as although I could hear it through the yaesu, there was no internet signal so i couldn't upload it
[18:00] <fsphil> evening all

[18:03] <Babs> interestingly the spot stopped working presumably because of altitude in the middle
[18:04] <Babs> evening fsphil - did you manage to see BABSHAB over in Ireland? I haven't had chance to catch up on the stats

[18:06] <Babs> I don't know whether the burst predictor maybe loses some accuracy at the outer reaches (it was a biblically heavy payload)

[18:37] <G6SUQ> do tell!
[18:38] <nommo> in sdr# next to the device selection (rtl-dsr/usb) > configure > check RTL AGC > check Tuner AGC
[18:39] <nommo> you may already have tried that but it made a big difference to me!
[18:39] <G6SUQ> wellll, yes. but AGC does not have amassive effect on gain
[18:40] <craag_G3KMI_P> G6SUQ: It does when the gain is manually set to -dB by default.

[18:41] <craag> Which I think it is in sdrsharp.

[18:41] <nommo> I've never managed to hear anything till i did that today, well - the new antenna helped too
[18:42] <craag> nommo: I did my first pico launch with the Gain set to 0dB (AGC off), so you're ahead of me!
[18:44] <nommo> Hehe :) Baby steps... I managed to chip in a few packets to the PIE6 pics today!
[18:45] <craag> :)
[18:45] <G6SUQ> every little helps, and as you were close to the landing sote you probably helped more than you realise.

[20:03] <x-f> yep

[20:04] <SpeedEvil> No.
[20:04] <Willdude123> Ham contacts with the iss make for interesting youtubing.
[20:04] <SpeedEvil> You're only about a third closer.
[20:05] <Willdude123> Yeah stupid question really.
[20:05] <SpeedEvil> Though in principle, with a small scope - yes
[20:05] <SpeedEvil> As seeing would be great
[20:05] <SpeedEvil> But - a 10cm scope may be somewhat heavier than is easy and safe to get to 30km

[20:08] <Willdude123> Right, I think I need to read up on how artificial satellites work.
[20:11] <Willdude123> This is a demented question, but if it's in free fall, will it eventually fall to earth?
[20:12] <SamSilver> artificial sats revolve around your imagination.

[20:14] <fsphil> if there was no drag at all, it would fall forever
[20:14] <fsphil> the ISS is low enough that there is some atmosphere
[20:14] <fsphil> slows it down slowly over time
[20:15] <fsphil> the shuttle used to boost it back up
[20:15] <fsphil> the ATV does that these days
[20:15] <Willdude123> ATV?
[20:15] <fsphil> the ESA resupply ship
[20:15] <fsphil> Automated Transfer Vehicle
[20:15] <Willdude123> So basically, it just falls and goes back up.
[20:16] <Willdude123> Well, orbits.
[20:16] <fsphil> yea it's altitude drops over time
[20:16] <fsphil> if it was in a higher orbit it would be less of a problem
[20:16] <fsphil> as there would be less atmosphere
[20:17] <fsphil> that is both an advantage and a disadvantage
[20:17] <x-f> i like the GOCE satellite - it's way lower than ISS and therefore looks like a spaceship from the future - shiny and streamlined
[20:17] <fsphil> disadvantage being it requires the regular boost to keep it in orbit
[20:17] <fsphil> advantage being that pieces of junk there will eventually reenter and burn up in the atmosphere
[20:18] <Willdude123> So ATVs have some sort of rocket to push the iss up?
[20:18] <fsphil> yep
[20:19] <Willdude123> Stupid question, but after they've <s>eaten</s> used everything on the atv, what happens to it?
[20:19] <Willdude123> Can they just throw it out the window? :-)
[20:20] <fsphil> they fill it with junk, and send it back to earth
[20:20] <fsphil> it burns up

[21:13] <anerDev> hi guys !
[21:13] <fsphil> at least there's no early flights tomorrow. don't have to set the alarm :)
[21:13] <anerDev> today can't test the transmission of the antenna ! :/
[21:14] <mfa298> fsphil: that reminds me, I should probably turn off the standard mon-fri alarm.
[21:14] <fsphil> ooh nuts, forgot about that too
[21:14] <anerDev> fsphil I have a quesstion about the Predictor ! How much are the accuracy of the land position of the balloon ?
[21:14] <fsphil> ta mfa298 :)
[21:15] <fsphil> anerDev: before bursting, not really accurate at all
[21:15] <fsphil> after bursting, increasingly accurate :)
[21:15] Action: mfa298 now goes to turn it off before I forget. I don't want be be reminded when it wakes me up in the morning
[21:15] <fsphil> now if I can remember where I set my phone
[21:15] <anerDev> fhphil O.0 !
[21:16] <anerDev> +- 10 km accuracy ?
[21:16] <gonzo_mob> how did the pie recovery go!
[21:16] <mfa298> anerDev: A lot of it depends on how accurate the data is that you put in and how much the winds are changing.
[21:17] <fsphil> gonzo_mob: recovered. someone had found it before dave got to the landing spot
[21:17] <fsphil> they took it home and phone him
[21:17] <gonzo_mob> oh nice
[21:17] <mfa298> the predictors generally all assume the landing location is 0m ASL so it it's landing in a hilly area you need to allow for that.
[21:18] <anerDev> mfa298 the only data that I can put is only the altiude burst (calculate from the calc burst), the start position the data/time, ascent rate
[21:18] <gonzo_mob> was it still tx'ing?
[21:18] <fsphil> gonzo_mob: yea, there's a few pictures there post-recovery
[21:18] <anerDev> mfa298 for example, watch this: http://habhub.org/predict/#!/uuid=471d31d8943940b825e9223f11a6f0ee6d3dc84a
[21:19] <anerDev> the land point can move aside +-2 KM ?
[21:19] <gonzo_mob> a good flight then. nice
[21:19] <fsphil> oh I was talking about the live predictor
[21:19] <fsphil> use the predictor only to get a rough idea of the direction it might be travelling
[21:19] <fsphil> and the areas it might land in
[21:20] <fsphil> so you can avoid a city, or airport for example
[21:20] <mfa298> anerDev: try changing the values a bit and see what happens (especially the ascent/descent rates and burst altitude)
[21:20] <fsphil> I'm pleased how well 600 baud works over distance
[21:20] <fsphil> though I'm still wary of doing it myself
[21:20] <Geoff-G8DHE> Must admit that worked very well indeed !
[21:21] <anerDev> mfa298: wtach now: http://habhub.org/predict/#!/uuid=339aee41448391fc4cb372b933091d03c9a388b8
[21:22] <fsphil> the number of listeners helps too -- this format really works best with lots of stations
[21:23] <mfa298> anerDev: so if you get a bit more gas in the balloon so it goes up faster there's quite a difference in where it lands.
[21:23] <mfa298> Measuring you've got the correct amount of gas can be tricky
[21:24] <anerDev> is set this data in the calc burst :http://d.pr/i/zmyb
[21:24] <anerDev> 5 m/s is a good speed ?
[21:24] <fsphil> the burst altitude will also depend on attributes of the balloon you can't easily know
[21:25] <fsphil> it can vary by a few km
[21:25] <mfa298> anerDev: you'll find most of those values end up being a best guess so the prediction will be based on those best guesses.
[21:25] iain_G4SGX (~iain@87.115.120.189) left irc: Remote host closed the connection
[21:25] <anerDev> uhmm ok ok
[21:26] <anerDev> the problem is: it can vary by a few km
[21:26] <anerDev> if the balloon go to sea is a problem !
[21:26] <fsphil> if your prediction is showing it landing near the sea, then don't launch :)
[21:27] <mfa298> The other question to ask yourself is how accurately do you think you can measure the Neck lift of the balloon (do you think you'll get it exactly on 2218g, and is your payload mass going to be exactly 1000g)
[21:27] BadClown (~BadClown@91.146.241.130) joined #highaltitude.
[21:27] <SpeedEvil> In general, if changing your launch an hour either way, or your lift up or down 20% gives a vastly different landing place - don't laucnh
[21:27] <mfa298> or if it's going near the sea try more gas so you get a faster ascent and lower burst and see if thats a better prediction.
[21:28] <SpeedEvil> Unless you can cope with a landing anywhere around the various solutions.
[21:28] <anerDev> mfa298: yes, for now is a orientative weight, after I will put the exaclly weight
[21:28] <jonsowman> getting the neck lift right is much harder

[21:48] <Babs> I had it on a bearing so that whatever the balloon was doing in terms of spin it had a greater tendency to stay still
[21:49] <S_Mark> Ah thats a good idea, any pics of that?
[21:50] <Babs> All on this set http://www.flickr.com/photos/91049302@N00/sets/72157632733154985/
[21:50] <Babs> although this is the one you want for the bearing http://www.flickr.com/photos/91049302@N00/8589745881/in/set-72157632733154985
[21:51] <S_Mark> Ahhh yes I have seen this before. Did you send the SLR up today?
[21:51] <Willdude123> Cause it's not as if customs inspect them.
[21:51] <Babs> Yes, still have to process those. Made an error in terms of the camera running out of space half way up :(
[21:51] <Babs> a shame as everything else went ok
[21:51] <Willdude123> Someone could stick cocaine in a hab, and make sure the wind is right, to get it to another country.
[21:51] <Babs> just about
[21:52] <Willdude123> And you could have someone following it, and managing to pick it up.
[21:52] <S_Mark> Looks a quality setup very good
[21:52] <Babs> Thanks - right, I'm knackered. Night everyone.
[21:52] <S_Mark> you print everything yourself?
[21:52] Action: mfa298 expects customs and excise to turn up if/when Willdude123 launches a balloon
[21:52] <fsphil> nite Babs
[21:52] <S_Mark> Night!
[21:53] <Willdude123> Someone prove me wrong.
[21:53] <Babs> Yes, got the files if you want them. PM me.
[21:57] <chrisstubbs> Better go check the status of the cheapo cattracker

[22:19] <Willdude123> Hello
[22:20] <chrisstubbs> welcome
[22:23] <Willdude123> Upu, you around?
[22:24] <chrisstubbs> in scotland i think
[22:26] <Willdude123> Ah right,
[22:27] <Willdude123> Is it even worth asking if I can go to the conference?
[22:27] <chrisstubbs> Dont see why not
[22:28] <Willdude123> Parents?
[22:29] <Steffanx> :P

[22:29] <Steffanx> Say to your dad he should come with you
[22:30] <Steffanx> Some son and dad quality time
[22:30] <Willdude123> Haha
[22:30] <Willdude123> You're assuming my dad gives a shit about me.
[22:30] <fsphil> there was a baby there last time
[22:31] <fsphil> so yes it's an event for all ages :) except maybe the pub bit afterwards
[22:32] <Willdude123> When I decided I wanted to be a ham, they couldn't be arsed to come to anything, so my grandad has to take me to the classes and rallie when I do it,
[22:32] <Willdude123> Yet they support my sister's taekwando,
[22:32] <Willdude123> Which is utterly pointless.
[22:33] <chrisstubbs> WILLdude123 will your grandad take you to the conference?
[22:34] <Willdude123> Probably, but I wouldn't want to burden him,
[22:35] <Willdude123> He is slightly interested in ham radio.
[22:35] <Willdude123> But not much.
[22:36] <Willdude123> It's a bit insensitive of my parents in a way, considering his wife died during easter.
[22:36] <fsphil> totally OT but some lovely nest box footage (not mine): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qnSCNBYVUy8
[22:37] <chrisstubbs> fsphil, my dad shut the cable for our birdbox cam in the window and shorted the power feed to video output
[22:37] <chrisstubbs> bew the camera just before the eggs hatched
[22:37] <chrisstubbs> *blew
[22:37] <fsphil> ah man!
[22:37] <chrisstubbs> was just a cheapy IR ebay one
[22:37] <Willdude123> Why did he do that?
[22:38] <fsphil> unfortunate timing
[22:38] <chrisstubbs> Thats great quality
[22:39] <fsphil> it is. I'm gonna put a few Pi cameras in my box for next season
[22:39] <fsphil> they came out a bit too late for this year
[22:39] <cuddykid> fsphil: is yours wired or wireless?
[22:39] <cuddykid> that is fantastic footage
[22:40] <chrisstubbs> I have the perfect enclosure for a pi birdcam setup but none of my 4 video capture sticks worked with fswebcam :(
[22:40] <fsphil> wired, I use cat5 for each box. but it's just composite video atm, so not HD like that video above
[22:40] <fsphil> so in theory I can put the Pi in and re-use the cat5 for ethernet instead of analogue video
[22:40] <chrisstubbs> POE?
[22:40] <fsphil> chrisstubbs: linux or fswebcam flaw?
[22:41] <chrisstubbs> linux i think
[22:41] <fsphil> well a poor mans POE
[22:41] <fsphil> 12V down the two unused pairs
[22:41] <chrisstubbs> 4 wire ethernet and 2 wire power? :P
[22:41] <chrisstubbs> yeah
[22:41] <chrisstubbs> oh or is cat5 4 pair
[22:41] <fsphil> 4 pairs
[22:42] <chrisstubbs> should have crimped enough of it to know that and the colour sequence by now
[22:42] <fsphil> I cheat a bit in the swift boxes, two pairs for video and audio
[22:42] <fsphil> 3rd pair is for GND, and I split the remaining pair for camera/mic power and the LED lighting (12v and 5v)
[22:43] <fsphil> haha yea, I know it off by heart now
[22:43] <chrisstubbs> IR lighting or just normal?
[22:43] <fsphil> IR in the swift boxes
[22:43] <fsphil> the bluetit box has both
