[08:19] <HixWork> morning Ugi
[08:20] <Babs__> just looked it up. very cool.
[08:20] <Ugi> how's your stencil coming along?
[08:21] <Babs__> i SMTd some components without the assistance (or in fact knowledge of) a solder stencil. Much easier your way.
[08:21] <HixWork> ugi - hopefully its coming
[08:22] <fsphil> B5 is our last, best hope for float
[08:22] <HixWork> Babs__, yes, have done that too, but some of these parts are tiny
[08:24] <Babs__> i had the big SMT components and it was difficult enough. WIth this I guess you just do the stencil thang, place the components on top and then pop it in an oven at gas mark 5?
[08:25] <Babs__> I mean a carefully temperature controlled reflow oven
[08:25] <HixWork> I was thinking of slipping it into one of those apple pies McDonalds used to sell
[08:26] <HixWork> should reflow it
[08:27] <Babs__> You would melt the pcb at those temperatures. I have still have mouth scars from a McDonalds pie burn

[08:39] <HixWork> oh Babs__ re stabilotron. I was thinking of a system to replace the swivel system t'other week. I figured on using a system similar to a RC Heli swashplate to isolate rotation and also reduce pitch and roll
[08:43] <HixWork> something similar to this http://goo.gl/q9AK5
[08:58] <HixWork> has anyone used a USB Microscope for pcb assembly / inspection. something like this http://goo.gl/eCa1L
[08:59] <fsphil> good for inspection, but the lag on the screen makes it annoying for soldering
[08:59] <fsphil> the one I have needs to get too close too, can't get the iron near it
[08:59] <fsphil> that one looks better
[09:02] <Babs__> that swash plate is basically a gimbal in another name - but if it is pre fabbed and aluminium, its probably easier to implement than my system
[09:08] <HixWork> I was thinking it could be used in addition, just to lessen the load on the IMU based stabilotron
[09:08] <HixWork> like a hardware filter
[09:08] <HixWork> fsphil, reckon I'll get one, sure its fun for other stuff too
[09:11] <Babs__> agreed - however, bear in mind that you need a degree of friction on the rotational aspect of the HAB (you need something to rotate against to enable the camera to be pointed in the correct direction)

[10:39] <eroomde> re earlier, yes the problem with rotating a camera within a hab is that the rest of the hab will just want to twist the other way
[10:39] <eroomde> it's tricksie

[10:53] <fsphil> infinity__: nice. flight docs all setup and tested?
[10:54] <Babs__> eroomde - surely the only thing you need is part of the hab above the rotating pivot, and part below, and a weight differential between top and bottom?
[10:54] <eroomde> i mean for yaw really

[10:54] <eroomde> gravity sorts out roll and pitch
[10:54] <infinity__> Yep NOTAM done and cameras checked. New batteries purchased as we have had issues in the past! Not looking for records just decent flight and recovery.
[10:54] <Babs__> yes, i mean for yaw
[10:55] <Babs__> you put a low friction pivot above the whole of the payload to limit spin from the parachute / line a la BABS HAB
[10:55] <eroomde> well, you'll still get a rotation on the 'fixed' part in proportional to the ratio of the weights
[10:55] <eroomde> the torque generated by your rotation motor will act equally on both
[10:55] rogerponts (5336785f@gateway/web/freenode/ip. left irc: Client Quit
[10:55] <Babs__> that limits the general rotation of it to a low amount per the vid/evidence from my flight
[10:56] <Babs__> and then separating the payload into two, as long as there is a weight differential the speed of counterotating will be different from the top part to the bottom part
[10:56] <Babs__> like when a helicopters tail rotor fails

[10:57] <Babs__> as long as the overall rotation of both upper and lower parts is slow (which it should be if there is a low friction bearing between the whole package and the balloon),
[10:58] <Babs__> tthen the motor between the two counter rotating parts of the payload should be able to keep up
[10:58] <x-f> infinity__, he meant Habitat flight docs - http://habitat.habhub.org/genpayload/ - are those done and tested for your flight?
[10:58] <eroomde> yes, you're right, but you just have to factor it in is all
[10:59] <eroomde> i.e. moving it 60 degrees won't actually move the camera in space 60 degrees
[10:59] <eroomde> but something less
[10:59] <Babs__> iie it might take 10 rotations of the servo between top and bottom part of the payload to result in the camera turning 360 degrees (if the mass of upper and lower parts is close to the same), but after that it should just require small adjustments
[10:59] <eroomde> and the gyros probably won't help counteract the torque from slow movements
[10:59] <Babs__> ahh, we got to the same point
[11:00] <Babs__> or you just make the camera part as light as possible and put as much of the weight as possible in the top half
[11:00] <eroomde> the thing is then what do you do if you've built up a load of momentum from all that turning :)
[11:00] <Babs__> trust it to settle down
[11:00] <eroomde> indeed

[11:11] <eroomde> sort of but plastic deformation
[11:12] <eroomde> which dissipates energy
[11:12] <eroomde> rather than elastic
[11:12] <eroomde> which just sores it
[11:12] <eroomde> stores*
[11:12] <HixWork> a simple heli landing leg arrangement should suffice?
[11:12] <HixWork> out of dural
[11:12] <eroomde> no metal
[11:12] <eroomde> f*cks radio
[11:12] <HixWork> hmm
[11:13] <HixWork> wouldnt all the carbon too though
[11:13] <Babs__> maximum hab points if you made it really elastic so it jumped back up to trackable height with an RTTY signal saying "hello boys, I'm here"
[11:13] <HixWork> HABTigger
[11:13] <eroomde> HixWork: yes but i can keep that above the natenna
[11:13] <Babs__> NASA could do with us on board as concept people
[11:13] <eroomde> legs will be fibreglass rods
[11:14] <HixWork> ah ok
[11:14] <Babs__> i need to see this eroomde
[11:14] <eroomde> i need a cad package
[11:14] <Babs__> I'm ready to hand over the truss baton
[11:14] <Babs__> google sketchup
[11:14] <HixWork> CAD to be sorted at conf
[11:14] <eroomde> i don't *need* one but i can make pretties with one
[11:14] <HixWork> you NEED it
[11:15] <Babs__> i thought it was pants and troublesome when I started, but then we had a longer term affair and developed quite a relationship together
[11:15] <eroomde> also my reaction wheel will be damn sexy
[11:15] <SpeedEvil> eroomde: Will it make an ominous humming noise?
[11:15] <eroomde> have sketches of that too
[11:15] <eroomde> fsphil: i need a star camera
[11:15] <eroomde> for the arcsecond pointing
[11:16] <Babs__> the people on google doing reaction wheels appear to also have second careers as chefs http://sci.esa.int/science-e-media/img/a6/ReactionWheel410.jpg
[11:16] <eroomde> lol
[11:16] <eroomde> for this it's all about getting the friction right down
[11:17] <Babs__> but what is the aim of this eroomde?
[11:17] <Babs__> every project needs an aim
[11:17] <eroomde> initially northn lights
[11:17] <eroomde> but then 'hobble'
[11:17] <eroomde> the poor man's space telescope
[11:18] <Babs__> if you could replicate the conditions on that apex video of babshab that would definitely be stable enough
[11:18] <eroomde> i think you really need like 100x better
[11:18] <Babs__> only thing is, i have no idea whether i was lucky with the weather conditions or whether it would always perform like that
[11:18] Action: SpeedEvil sighs at the condition of Kepler.
[11:18] <eroomde> hundreths of a degree
[11:18] <Babs__> bolds
[11:18] <Babs__> bold
[11:18] <eroomde> 1 degree per sec rotation is actually enormous
[11:18] <eroomde> for long exposure photography
[11:19] <Babs__> a 30 sec exposure is all you need right?
[11:19] <eroomde> more like 3 for nothern lights
[11:19] <SpeedEvil> eroomde: I've seen some interesting CCDs that let you clock the pixels left/right/up/down - which seemed interesting.
[11:19] <eroomde> depending on iso performance of cams
[11:19] <Babs__> whadddabout
[11:19] <Babs__> my levels of stability, and then simply using image stacking ?
[11:19] <Babs__> that DSLR can fire off 5 photos a second
[11:20] <eroomde> works to a point, but SNR gets in the way eventually
[11:20] <Babs__> pop off 20 or so then process on the ground
[11:20] <SpeedEvil> Readout noise is unfortunately big.
[11:20] <Geoff-G8DHE_> Is the iCalendar being updated at present ? I notice nothing is showing as scheduled ?
[11:20] <eroomde> you need to collect a certain number of photons from weak things like northn lights to even be seen above the sensor noise
[11:21] <eroomde> there's a min exposure time basically
[11:21] <fsphil> stacking would help
[11:21] <Babs__> stacking also sounds cool
[11:21] <eroomde> however i would be looking at tracking movmement and doing motion deconvolution
[11:21] <SpeedEvil> Stacking doesn't really help.
[11:21] <HixWork> what about some form of off axis guider as used in astroimaging?
[11:21] <Babs__> cool sounding words have to help. I can't beleive they don't
[11:21] <mattbrejza> Geoff-G8DHE_: its empty because there are no flight docs for the future
[11:21] <fsphil> doesn't help for heat noise
[11:21] <SpeedEvil> fsphil: The problem is that you have - say a 10 photoelectron readout noise.
[11:21] <fsphil> not heat noise -- hot spots
[11:21] <SpeedEvil> fsphil: This means that you have about a 50 photon noise.
[11:21] GW8RAK (~chatzilla@host81-156-80-86.range81-156.btcentralplus.com) joined #highaltitude.
[11:22] <Babs__> If only we could get lots of helium up there to cool the CCD down.
[11:22] <Babs__> oh.
[11:22] <Geoff-G8DHE_> Sp infinity has forgotten his ?
[11:22] <SpeedEvil> fsphil: 1000 frames only get you 30-fold improvement in SNR - so with 50 photon noise, you're still at about 2 photons of signal.
[11:23] <eroomde> need a star cam :)
[11:23] <LazyLeopard> Dark frames deal with hot spots.
[11:23] <SpeedEvil> fsphil: If, however, you can stretch the frame time out tenfold, and stack a hundred - you get a _LOT_ more SNR
[11:24] <HixWork> is there any mileage in adopting a similar strategy to guiding with scopes for astroimaging?
[11:25] <eroomde> they do star tracking don't they?
[11:25] <eroomde> keep a star in the crosshairs
[11:25] <HixWork> yes
[11:25] <SpeedEvil> HixWork: Sure.
[11:25] <eroomde> that's basically what i'm proposing
[11:25] <SpeedEvil> HixWork: but for 'just' tenths of a degree - gyros will work fine
[11:25] <eroomde> but the tracking has to be good
[11:26] <SpeedEvil> It would be interesting if Kepler would release _all_ thier specs.
[11:27] <HixWork> it seems a farsimpler method than reaction wheels
[11:27] <SpeedEvil> To see if there was any possible way to reprogram it to get science data that's been overlooked.
[11:27] <SpeedEvil> HixWork: err - sensing is different from positioning.
[11:28] <HixWork> course
[11:28] <LazyLeopard> Astrophotographers tend to have their scopes rather solidly mounted, so the corrections they usually have to make are very small...
[11:28] <eroomde> what seems simpler than reaction wheels?
[11:28] <LazyLeopard> Kepler, I expect, has some rather serious guiding kit to compensate for not being quite so solidly mounted...
[11:29] <fsphil> SpeedEvil: yea, you can't beat a longer exposure
[11:29] <eroomde> agreed
[11:29] <eroomde> LazyLeopard: but we can make serious guiding kit too
[11:29] <SpeedEvil> LazyLeopard: It's unfortunately decided to be comedic clown-walk guiding kit.
[11:29] <SpeedEvil> recently.
[11:29] <eroomde> and try and make up the rest in post-processing
[11:29] <Laurenceb> you talking about kepler?
[11:29] <HixWork> The Nikon D4 has some pretty outrageous ISO performance
[11:29] Action: Laurenceb too lazy to scrollback
[11:29] <eroomde> that would be nice
[11:29] <eroomde> not sure i have the monies for that
[11:29] <SpeedEvil> Laurenceb: not really, I mentioned it as a pity.
[11:30] <Laurenceb> ah
[11:30] <eroomde> also heavy, tho i imagine we'd do some major surgery
[11:30] <SpeedEvil> Laurenceb: eroomde is wondering about pointing his thingy at stuff.
[11:30] <Laurenceb> i was talking to someone who was working on some cool signal processing
[11:30] <Laurenceb> for kepler data
[11:30] <SpeedEvil> Laurenceb: The asteroseismology is _fascinating_
[11:30] <SpeedEvil> Laurenceb: Did you see the kepler science conference?
[11:30] <Laurenceb> basically if you have one planet occluding the star, look at small fluctuations in its orbit
[11:30] <Laurenceb> an fit to a multiple planet model
[11:31] <Laurenceb> nope
[11:31] <Laurenceb> pointy thing for eclipse?
[11:31] <eroomde> eventually
[11:31] <eroomde> tho interested in doing something sooner
[11:31] <HixWork> eroomde, I believe the D800 has the same image processor and sensor
[11:31] <Laurenceb> isn't it a solved problem?
[11:31] <Laurenceb> the gimbal mounts
[11:31] <LazyLeopard> Nikon tend to do fairly agressive black clipping, which makes life difficult for astrophotographers, apparently.
[11:32] <Laurenceb> go to rcgroups XD
[11:32] <HixWork> if you could pretty much guarantee recovery, rent
[11:32] <Laurenceb> wouldn't you want canon with chdk?
[11:32] <eroomde> you're trolling
[11:32] <Laurenceb> canon have a 200gram camera with 14bit raw iirc
[11:32] <Laurenceb> im always trolling
[11:32] <SpeedEvil> Laurenceb: Highly recommended - http://kepler.nasa.gov/Science/ForScientists/keplerconference/2011keplerscicon1/
[11:32] <Laurenceb> thanks
[11:32] <HixWork> LazyLeopard, i understand canon have easier IR filter removal too, but afaik the low light sensitivity is not a patch on Nikons
[11:32] <SpeedEvil> Laurenceb: I watched all of it - it's very acessible to the layman - as it's a new field.
[11:33] <Laurenceb> nice
[11:33] <Laurenceb> im no photographer, but id hazard a guess you want raw mode with a lot of bits
[11:33] <SpeedEvil> Laurenceb: you just need to understand what spherical harmonics are, and that astronomers call everything heavier than helium a metal, and you're good.
[11:33] <Laurenceb> knew that already :P
[11:33] <eroomde> Laurenceb: it's the noise performance i care about most
[11:33] <eroomde> the highest usable ISO setting
[11:33] <Laurenceb> yeah
[11:34] <Laurenceb> id be worried about high dynamic range
[11:34] <Laurenceb> well - more complex than that
[11:34] <HixWork> I was offered the loan of a D3 for HAB, may be able to call it in eroomde especially oop north for aurora, he's a polar explorer
[11:34] daveake (~daveake@ joined #highaltitude.
[11:34] <eroomde> nice
[11:34] <eroomde> well i want 3 cams for this
[11:34] fsphil (fsphil@ursa.sanslogic.co.uk) left irc: Ping timeout: 245 seconds
[11:34] <Laurenceb> I suspect youd need weird nonlinear remappings to get the best results
[11:34] <SpeedEvil> Laurenceb: My favourite quote of the conference 'The first thing we discovered was that the sun is not a sun-like star'
[11:34] <eroomde> each with at least a 120 degree FoV
[11:34] <eroomde> for a 360 panorama
[11:35] <HixWork> 14mm on a full frame sensor should do that
[11:35] <HixWork> damn 104
[11:35] <LazyLeopard> Black-clipping, however, takes the fine detail out of astrophotographs.
[11:35] <HixWork> 10mm then
[11:35] <Geoff-G8DHE_> Fisheye your not looking for massive resolution
[11:35] <Laurenceb> eroomde: clearly you need a Hasselblad hd4
[11:35] <SpeedEvil> Laurenceb: - as Kepler was designed to detect planets around sun-like stars. The sun was used as a reference brightness source - as it's the only one we had good brightness data on. It turns ou tthat the sun flickers a lot less than most sun-like stars. This does _bad_ things to the SNR when you're trying to pick up little fluctuations.
[11:36] <Laurenceb> interesting, i see
[11:36] <SpeedEvil> Laurenceb: And is the reason the 'extended mission' was needed to get to baseline (pick up earth-like worlds in earth-like-orbits around sun-like stars
[11:36] <eroomde> hmm that might be too optimistic
[11:36] <eroomde> might have to go for 4 cams
[11:36] <Laurenceb> http://www.hasselblad.co.uk/products/h-system/h4d-50.aspx
[11:36] <Laurenceb> 16bit adc O_o
[11:37] <Laurenceb> or for mortals: http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/G1_X
[11:38] <Laurenceb> which would also stand a chance of fitting on a gimbal, and run chdk
[11:38] <Laurenceb> for extra marks run PTP over the usb and SSDV the photos
[11:40] <Laurenceb> http://www.cameralabs.com/reviews/Canon_PowerShot_G1_X/high_ISO_noise.shtml
[11:40] <eroomde> that's ludicrously bad iso performance
[11:41] <Laurenceb> from the G1X too?
[11:41] <eroomde> oh wait i was looking at the g12
[11:41] <eroomde> !
[11:41] <eroomde> g1 not bad
[11:41] <Laurenceb> yeah i thought G1 was best for eclipse when i looked at this
[11:42] <Laurenceb> i was looking for lots of bits+ raw + PTP + cheap + lightweight
[11:42] Nick change: KingJ_ -> KingJ
[11:42] <Laurenceb> it seemed the best

[15:00] <HixWork> hi cyclops
[15:00] <cyclops> Im looking foward to launch a raspberry pi
[15:00] <HixWork> not me then :)
[15:00] <cyclops> as a high school project
[15:01] <cyclops> so here I am
[15:01] <HixWork> why Pi?
[15:01] <cyclops> It is what some colleages recomend me
[15:01] <HixWork> generally [from my limited knowledge] it isn't really the best suited to HAB
[15:01] <cyclops> I assume that it has more processing power
[15:01] <cyclops> USB
[15:02] <HixWork> large, relatively heavy, power hungry
[15:02] <cyclops> Well I also looked at the examples here:
[15:02] <fsphil> if you need a USB device then you might need to. otherwise, an Arduino would work well
[15:02] <HixWork> most people use AVR processors, with great success.

[15:05] <eroomde> cyclops: we usually prefer tracking the flight throughout with a low power radio

[15:05] <daveake> eroomde> he has a lot to answer for
[15:05] <eroomde> though the latter can work
[15:05] <daveake> This is very true
[15:05] <cyclops> I was planing on using both
[15:05] <eroomde> ah ok
[15:05] <eroomde> well that's fair enough
[15:05] <HixWork> whoa Froome 1sec under Martin
[15:06] <cyclops> BTW i've been looking at this receiver for the radio signal
[15:06] <HixWork> cyclops, you can use aq gsm board on a UART rather than USB
[15:06] <cyclops> http://www.funcubedongle.com
[15:06] <eroomde> yep there are a few people who use them
[15:06] <daveake> yes a good choice
[15:06] <eroomde> they work ok
[15:07] <HixWork> they are highly rated, especially with Darksides HABamp from UPu's store
[15:07] <cyclops> Thats about 130¬
[15:07] <eroomde> i think you probably want to put some kind of filter infront
[15:07] <cyclops> And the other receivers about 400¬
[15:07] <eroomde> eg the one HixWorks suggested
[15:07] <eroomde> cyclops: on their own they're not as good as a normal amateur radio receiver
[15:07] <eroomde> but with the some filtering they're very usable
[15:08] <cyclops> HixWork no idea about that, I am searching for the easiest to set up
[15:08] <[1]Geoff-G8DHE> Have you looked thru the Wiki ?
[15:08] <cyclops> Yep
[15:08] <eroomde> cyclops: easiest involved more money
[15:08] <eroomde> involves*
[15:08] <HixWork> cyclops, look here http://goo.gl/zXZVY
[15:09] <[1]Geoff-G8DHE> the straight TV dongles and HABAMP work very wwll as well
[15:09] <cyclops> I see
[15:09] <HixWork> i paid ~€10 for a dongle and it is fine
[15:09] <cyclops> Well
[15:10] <HixWork> admitedly not as good as the fcd but good enough to track
[15:10] PH3V (3ec3e154@gateway/web/freenode/ip. joined #highaltitude.
[15:10] <eroomde> yes, anything on rtl-sdr + habamp (or similar) should work fine for you
[15:10] <cyclops> Lets start by the begining as i plan the launch in August
[15:10] <[1]Geoff-G8DHE> http://360.g8dhe.net/hab_flights/HABAMP_and_DONGLE/
[15:10] <cyclops> So for the main flight computer
[15:10] <HixWork> where do you plan to laiunch cyclops ?
[15:10] <cyclops> I live in spain
[15:11] <HixWork> ah, ok
[15:11] <cyclops> It will be in the south of spain
[15:11] <cyclops> No sea nearby
[15:11] <Babs__> trackuino?
[15:11] <HixWork> probably a better chance of not ditching in the sea there :)
[15:11] <cyclops> And no high trees
[15:11] <HixWork> see that daveake ^
[15:11] <Babs__> I built one, found it was illegal to use in the air here (but is legal in Spain), and since then has been a great locator of my living room table
[15:11] <cyclops> And a lot of space
[15:13] <HixWork> cyclops, the easiest route is arduino, NTX2 and uBLox GPS
[15:13] <cyclops> okay
[15:13] <cyclops> Do I need codin skills?
[15:13] <cyclops> *coding
[15:13] <HixWork> you can get a 5V breakout Ublox from Upu and you can wire straight to the NTX2 as long as you don't get too much heat into it
[15:13] <eroomde> yes
[15:14] <eroomde> you need coding skills
[15:14] <HixWork> that's the crunch part to time-limited launches
[15:14] <eroomde> or at least you need to be willing to learn them
[15:14] <cyclops> Im willing to learn
[15:14] <eroomde> then you've come to the right place
[15:15] <cyclops> Babs__ the Trackuino sounds interesting
[15:15] <HixWork> the best thing to get you atarted is this link http://goo.gl/s7MXy
[15:15] <cyclops> but I have to create the pcb and solder all?
[15:16] <Babs__> cyclops - http://www.trackuino.org/ - although no-one uses it here (which is probably a legal thing only, but may mean that it doesn't work as well( legal or not) as the NTX-2 Ublox route
[15:16] <cyclops> and why is it illegal?
[15:16] <Babs__> and I don't see Javier on here either (the guy who designed it) which also might say something. don't know, but it is an alternative for you.
[15:16] <HixWork> if you used an arduino Uno you can just get a plain prototyping shield
[15:17] <HixWork> UK radio laws cyclops

[15:24] <cyclops> I need a custom pcb then?
[15:25] <eroomde> read that link
[15:25] <eroomde> the answer is in it
[15:25] <eroomde> i'm not the expert as i've never used this before
[15:27] <HixWork> cyclops, you could probably use veroboard and the schematic provided
[15:27] <HixWork> or ask #hackvana about making some boards for you - they are very inexpensive
[15:28] <cyclops> Inexpensive is about...?
[15:29] <HixWork> well for a 50mm x 50mm pcb <$20 for 10
[15:29] <eroomde> $19 for 5x 5cmx5xm boards very roughly
[15:29] <eroomde> 10x then*
[15:29] <cyclops> how can i contact him to get a quotation?
[15:30] <HixWork> "/join #hackvana"
[15:30] <HixWork> he is called hackvana there
[15:30] <eroomde> read his guide on hackvana.com about how to ask for quotations

[15:31] <HixWork> cyclops, http://tinyurl.com/hvpcbfaq

[19:40] <Willdude123> With the ntx2 circuit, why are the voltages 2.763v and 2.235v chosen, and what would happen if you used different value resistors, but with R2 and R3 being 10x r1 ?
[19:41] <chrisstubbs> Willdude123, the voltages are chosen as their difference sets the shift of your RTTY

[19:50] <Willdude123> mfa298: So yeah I will need to get some different resistors.
[19:51] <mfa298> work out if the voltages are within the allowed values for the ntx2 data pin and what the shift is. As long as you're not over the max voltage or the shift outside of the reciever pass band it should be ok for testing.
[19:51] <mfa298> but a large shift isn't ideal for an actual flight.
[19:52] <mfa298> it's well worth getting a selection pack of resistors from somewhere.

[20:17] <mfa298> If you've got a spreadsheet for calculating it all that you're happy with make sure you save it for next time!
[20:17] <Willdude123> Doh farnell is down.
[20:17] <fsphil> when isn't it
[20:18] <Willdude123> Since the beaglebone has a RTOS, will I the ntx2 be fine with one?
[20:18] <Willdude123> Ie will I have to use the UART port?
[20:18] <Willdude123> Or can I use normal pins.
[20:18] <fsphil> if you have one free, use it
[20:19] <fsphil> saves you much hassle
[20:19] <Willdude123> Why though? It takes all the fun out of rtty code.

[20:19] <Willdude123> If you are just serial.print ing.
[20:19] <fsphil> exactly
[20:19] <Willdude123> Oh so will it not work otherwise?
[20:19] <fsphil> it may well do
[20:20] <fsphil> but even on an avr I'd still use a uart if there was one
[20:20] <Willdude123> I guess if it's quicker.
[20:20] <mfa298> general rule of programming, if there's a simple way to do it, use that.
[20:20] <fsphil> most avr uarts are busy doing gps though
[20:20] <mfa298> dont make more work for yourself, it just means there's more to go wrong
[20:20] <Willdude123> Except when it means stealing code you don't understand.

[20:20] <fsphil> oh definitly, would be mad not to use them
[20:20] <fsphil> the only catch might be
[20:21] <Lunar_Lander_> UART for NTX2?
[20:21] <fsphil> if they don't support the very slow modes
[20:21] <fsphil> the Pi can do 50 baud, but I know a few USB<>RS232 adaptors that don't
