[06:42] <daveake> Not checked yet today
[06:43] <daveake> 2 payloads, with separation, so that should be fun

[06:43] <daveake> We have 2 radio chase cars plus 1/2 other cars and we'll split up

[06:52] <daveake> Reload it - I cleared that

[06:52] <daveake> Should be one of ours on in a mo
[06:52] <G0TDJ_Steve> Got it :D
[06:52] <G0TDJ_Steve> SPEARS
[06:54] <G0TDJ_Steve> How long are SPEARS and LOHAN expected to be up?
[06:54] <daveake> 111 mins according to the calculator
[06:55] <daveake> then maybe 35 mins to land
[06:55] <daveake> There's a separation at 32km so one payload (CHAV/SHUTIT) will fall first

[09:06] <Maxell> Plot twist: they are blasting the tune too.
[09:06] <GreatWhiteNorth> I'm attempting to download a game, while we stream all this to our tv. Not much room in the bandwidth for streaming music.
[09:06] <LAGMonkey> i wonder when the second stream will go live.
[09:07] <number10> Upu_M0PU: I dont see payloads in fldigi
[09:07] <LAGMonkey> case car is up on the map!
[09:07] <arko> \o/ home safe
[09:07] <arko> in time to watch the launch :)
[09:07] <LAGMonkey> well done arko
[09:07] <GreatWhiteNorth> Great success
[09:07] <Geoff-G8DHE> Not the right one but nevermind!
[09:08] <arko> friends that dont drink are awesome
[09:08] <LAGMonkey> car wash case car?
[09:08] <GreatWhiteNorth> But booze is so fun.
[09:08] <arko> i know
[09:08] <GreatWhiteNorth> And goes well with Lohan
[09:08] <Hix> number10: go to DL Client > refresh flight docs
[09:08] <arko> i tell him, but then again he drives me home, so im fine with his decision
[09:08] <number10> did that hix
[09:09] <Hix> ok
[09:09] <arko> no audio yet?
[09:09] <number10> i'll do it again
[09:09] <LAGMonkey> you have to make up the audio yourself arko
[09:09] <GreatWhiteNorth> That could be dangerous.
[09:09] Action: arko starts playing tupac
[09:09] <GreatWhiteNorth> Point proven.
[09:09] <number10> doesnt seem to refresh the payloads for me
[09:10] <g0hww> gah. blooming ADSL is still down

[09:11] <g0hww> LAGMonkey, at least i've got my iphone plugged into this linux laptop so i have 3G conenctivity
[09:12] <GreatWhiteNorth> They prefer the sun, sand and over priced drinks maybe?
[09:12] <LAGMonkey> its better than nothing thats for sure g0hww.
[09:12] <Hix> arko: AbuHABi is nearby
[09:12] <g0hww> i can't see any LOHAN docs in dl-fldigi(HAB)
[09:12] <mclane> not working for me, can see only the primary stream
[09:12] <GreatWhiteNorth> Maybe they expect Lohan to fly there after she's released into the wild.
[09:13] <arko> haha sunscreen

[09:34] <LAGMonkey> naa your supposed to open the drive and blow on it
[09:34] <GreatWhiteNorth> I'd say all hail the oven, the amount of times we've oven baked my old laptop to revive it..
[09:34] <photonic> homemade tweezers i might add, using an old casing from some schitt the gf bought

[09:34] <photonic> so she does have her uses :)

[09:40] <photonic> might hook it up to my pi as an SSTV RX

[09:46] <Geoff-G8DHE> in that case he has no imagination!
[09:47] <photonic> ffs. At this rate they would have less disasters selling the planes to the Taliba

[09:50] <GreatWhiteNorth> Mmm lovely ISPs
[09:50] <photonic> also even the UK Govt would object to an unlicensed nuclear powered warp drive equipped "space plane" being launched by a civilian with less budget than El Reg

[11:44] <Chetic> is there a guide on how to make a reliable camera window for the payload?
[11:44] <M0CJM_Neil> where are you Geoff-G8DHE? I am almost underneath the balloon and took me ages to decode packets
[11:44] <Geoff-G8DHE> s/n 24dB
[11:44] <fsphil> they're talking about which one loves Bieber the most
[11:44] <Chetic> and payload antenna, I still don't get how those are put together
[11:44] <Geoff-G8DHE> South Coast but decoded SSSDV no problems previously
[11:44] <fsphil> my lip reading may not be that good
[11:44] <eroomde> Chetic: 1) cut a hole in the box
[11:44] <eroomde> the end
[11:45] <chrisstubbsM6EDF> Chetic, http://ukhas.org.uk/guides:payloadantenna
[11:45] <Chetic> that might get a bit chilly
[11:45] <eroomde> 2) it's easy with some coax, some normal wire, a soldering iron and some tire strippers
[11:45] <Hix> chetic 1/4 wave is simply a length of wire ~147mm with 4 radials a bit longer
[11:45] <eroomde> Chetic: not that chilly really
[11:45] <Hix> tyre strippers ;p
[11:45] <LAGMonkey> to the M4
[11:45] <Chetic> eroomde: below specs.
[11:45] <eroomde> remember the air gets very thin so while it mayb be cold, it can't take that much thermal energy away from the boards
[11:46] <fsphil> dave needs more magmount antennas
[11:46] <fsphil> ssdv's getting a bit choppy
[11:46] <M0CJM_Neil> Think chase car just going under m4?
[11:47] <SpeedEvil> In thin air - conduction and radiation are basically unchanged. Convection is sharply reduced.
[11:47] <LAGMonkey> maybe heading to the A34?
[11:47] <SpeedEvil> You need to get to stupidly low pressures - well under a pascal - to affect conduction.

[11:48] <fsphil> 600 baud is quite a challange
[11:48] <Maxell> How are you going to do that?
[11:49] <Chetic> I will just try to glue in a window or something
[11:49] <fsphil> I managed to decode some 600 baud data before from 400km away

[11:51] <Chetic> :p
[11:51] <photonic> so chav is working then?
[11:51] <eroomde> probably
[11:51] <eroomde> cameras dissipate quite a lot of power, relatively
[11:51] <photonic> yeah, i found that out

[11:51] <Maxell> Hix: with ease. check the elavation http://i.imgur.com/aqU6HC6.png
[11:51] <eroomde> if you were to just make a little hole in a polystyrene wall for it to look out of, and otherwise have it sandwich in polystyrene, i imagine it would get quite toasty at high altitudes
[11:52] <photonic> I did design a workaround, if you replace the xtal on a cheap camera the power requirements drop
[11:52] <Hix> photonic: http://spacenear.us/tracker/

[11:52] <photonic> i tested it on two B&W monochrome cameras and it verks

[11:52] <Maxell> Hix: awwww yeah
[11:52] <Hix> that rooftop aerial has come good Maxell :D

[13:39] <fsphil> Willdude123: shouldn't
[13:39] <Hix> Cyclops: http://stratosvision.com/docs/Mountain_Yagi_434_4Element.pdf is a self biuld for hunting on the ground
[13:39] <fsphil> otherwise it wouldn't be able to connect to anything without an interface
[13:39] <Willdude123> fsphil: Why does it do it now though?
[13:39] <Cyclops> Ok so I now have receiver and antenna. I'll be using Arduino UNO as flight computer and aeromidelism cameras
[13:39] <Cyclops> GPS and radio emitter is left
[13:39] <fsphil> Willdude123: check the hardware
[13:40] <fsphil> Willdude123: the led could be switched by a transistor, which might reverse it
[13:40] <Willdude123> But it's the radio though.
[13:40] <Cyclops> Thanks Hix I've saved the link
[13:40] <Hix> nps
[13:40] <photonic> OK. SO lessons learned. 1) Duplicate everything three times, 2) Use optocouplers, 3) Use optical AND radio in case either fails
[13:40] <Hix> did you get the magmount link?
[13:41] <Cyclops> Yes I did
[13:41] <Hix> cool
[13:41] <photonic> 4) Add tree eject mechanism
[13:41] <fsphil> Willdude123: it really does depend on your hardware. the cpu itself could be doing the reversal
[13:41] <fsphil> or it could be something on the board

[13:42] <eroomde> photonic: duplication is usually a bit excessive on unmanned airborne systems
[13:42] <photonic> hm.. True, BUT if it is lose the payload or duplicate it (Or use 3 payloads)
[13:42] <eroomde> it's sufficient to just use good practices in design and construction of acbles and connections

[13:49] <g8kbv> howabout using a handheld GPS to home in on it's presumably now static location, assuming it's still broadcasting that info.
[13:49] <photonic> The idea is that if the balloon pressure exceeds a set limit, a small amount of pressure is tapped off using a fuel cell

[13:49] <chrisstubbsM6EDF> Jess--M0VBR, I was talking about this the other day, a beeper that activated beloe x meters and turns off overnight to avoid annoyance incase it gets stuck in a populated area sounds reasonable

[21:37] <LeoBodnar> arko: yes, very informative flight. I still don't know what made internal temperature rise so much. I tend to think it was just heating by the Sun as dark solar panel has been wrapped around the tracker body
[21:38] <arko> very possible
[21:38] <arko> did your previous flights not heat up as much?
[21:38] <arko> also, that foil ground plane

[21:53] <mikestir> you can instantiate multiple receivers and move them between tuners without stopping the flow

[22:19] <Benny_Boy> Hello again! :) Telemetry question: what is a sensible rate for telemetry updates? Or better yet what is a reasonible max? Is transmitting every GPS sentence too much?
[22:19] <eroomde> well, work out the baud rate you'd need to transmit one ukhas string every 1s
[22:20] <eroomde> that should answer your q
[22:20] <LeoBodnar> What are you trying to achieve? Benny_Boy
[22:20] <Lunar_Lander> well on my flight it was 22 seconds between strings due to the 50 baud transmission taking so long
[22:20] <fsphil> I'd say as much as your chosen baud rate will allow
[22:21] <LeoBodnar> If your balloon is traveling at very high speed than you need a lot of fast updates
[22:21] <fsphil> even if that means repeating strings
[22:21] <fsphil> though at that point, a faster baud doesn't make much sense
[22:21] <Benny_Boy> So there is no upper limit on the receivers. It's just down to how fast I can sling the bits out? (Don't worry, I'm not trying to break some record, just trying to understand if transmitting every sentence is sensible)
[22:22] <eroomde> yes
[22:22] <LeoBodnar> Every GPS sentence is usually each second, no way
[22:22] <eroomde> but your baud rate is governed by your link budget
[22:22] <Benny_Boy> Is there a 'standard' rate? E.G every 15 seconds?
[22:22] <eroomde> whatever 50 baud allows
[22:22] <eroomde> if using rtty
[22:22] <LeoBodnar> However just basic Lat/Lon/Alt at 600 might work 1/sec
[22:23] <SpeedEvil> Every 15s or so seems to work out about it in many cases
[22:23] <LeoBodnar> Don't set it as a target design goal
[22:23] <Benny_Boy> I understand. :)
[22:23] <LeoBodnar> It'll be whatever it'll be
[22:23] <Benny_Boy> Thanks for the advise! :)
[22:24] <fsphil> most flights use 50 baud, but 100 baud would probably work just as well

[22:37] schoppenhauer (~quassel@unaffiliated/schoppenhauer) left irc: Ping timeout: 246 seconds
[22:38] <Benny_Boy> So how do you calculate the transmission time for a string like "hello" at 50 baud? Wiki says that baud is the number of symbols per second and that a symbols can be multiple binary digits.
[22:38] <SpeedEvil> It's simpler than that.
[22:38] <SpeedEvil> 50 baud is really a bit a second
[22:38] <Upu> ping craag glad you got me slagging of radio hams on that video :)
[22:39] <fsphil> for rtty anyway
[22:39] <SpeedEvil> With 9 time periods per char - 7 and stop/start bits - you just divide 50/9 to get chars/s
[22:39] <fsphil> more complicate modes can have multiple bits per symbol

[22:40] <Upu> then on the way down the pin that holds it shook free and the glider tangled up so sadly didn't separate then either

[22:40] <Upu> which it kindly brought back

[22:41] <fsphil> I'm sure Upu will send it to you if you want :)
[22:41] <Upu> Dave has it but can be arranged
[22:42] <LeoBodnar> Hmm, it didn't look like something NASA would do (or at least show it does)
[22:42] <LeoBodnar> the igniter-cord duo
[22:42] <Benny_Boy> I thought it was 8 bits per char and 1 extra bit either end. 10 in total
[22:42] <LeoBodnar> Yes Benny_Boy
[22:42] <Benny_Boy> or is that just down to how you decide to send the data?
[22:43] <LeoBodnar> 50bps = 5char/sec on 8N1 or 7N2
[22:43] <Benny_Boy> so why 50/9? Why not 50/10 for chars/s
[22:43] <fsphil> Benny_Boy: rtty can have 8-bit or 7-bit ascii
[22:43] <fsphil> (or 5-bit baudot ,, but ignore that)
[22:43] <LeoBodnar> 7N1 is 50/9=...
[22:43] <Benny_Boy> ahhhhhhhhhhhh
[22:44] <Benny_Boy> :)
[22:44] <fsphil> unless you have two stop bits
[22:44] <fsphil> but that's optional
[22:44] <fsphil> so, 1 start bit, 7 or 8 data bits, 1 or 2 stop bits
[22:45] <LeoBodnar> Personally I think 7N2 is more robust because it prepends start bit with two stop ones but it's a matter of opinion
[22:45] <mikestir> out of interest, why does no one use baudot for HAB? it has all the neccessary characters for a UKHAS string doesn't it?
[22:45] <fsphil> LeoBodnar: fldigi does seem to decode better with 2 stop bits
[22:45] <fsphil> especially at higher baud rates
[22:46] <Benny_Boy> I'll bear that in mind
[22:46] <fsphil> mikestir: missing *
[22:46] <fsphil> it also has two character sets, and if it switchs to the wrong one the rest of the string is bad
[22:46] <LeoBodnar> Yes, why nobody flies proper Baudot with proper funny baudrate and spacing?!
[22:47] <mikestir> yeah I suppose the risk of switching charsets is a real one
[22:47] <fsphil> a bad character with ascii will still ruin a string, but it should still be mostly readable
[22:47] <LeoBodnar> And receives it on a proper big noisy teletype smelling of machine oil and hot insulation
[22:48] <fsphil> there is also hatty, a 4-bit mode that nobody supports :)
[22:48] <LeoBodnar> Upu has deserted it! :)
[22:48] <fsphil> it has multiple character sets too but doesn't stick to any
[22:48] <mikestir> when I was playing with the RFM22 I wrote something that encoded 5n2 baudot into 8 bits and transmitted it using the packet engine
[22:48] <fsphil> so it wouldn't have that baudot flaw

[22:51] <LeoBodnar> Zigzagged inside
[22:51] <Lunar_Lander> yeah not only MC but also VHS
[22:52] <LeoBodnar> The one that your borrowed for just one day.
[22:52] <fsphil> oh yea, vhs
[22:53] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[22:53] <Lunar_Lander> but I think the most crucial tapes were the ones on Voyager, Galileo and other probes
[22:53] <fsphil> I had a vhs player on for the first time in about 5 years
[22:53] <fsphil> and it still worked
[22:53] <Lunar_Lander> cool
[22:53] <fsphil> the first thing I had to do was rewind a tape, and remembering why I watch stuff on computer now
[22:54] <Lunar_Lander> yeah
[22:54] <LeoBodnar> It was probably the last time it got turned on

[22:55] <gonzo__> I was going to fly a baudot hab, but there were issues with the * chr I think it was
[22:55] <Lunar_Lander> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F-efQbRVZrs
[22:56] <fsphil> I believe there is a hack in dl-fldigi's hab mode, that treats the # as a * for baudot
[22:56] <gonzo__> we tried that didn;t we
[22:56] <Lunar_Lander> xD I just notice that the repair shop radio there runs "Simple Minds - Don't you forget about me"
[22:56] <Lunar_Lander> you can hear it just before he plugs in the VCR

[23:16] <fsphil> Altitude
[23:16] <Willdude123> My BBB tracker is fuc*** because the uart doesn't go down to 50 baud afaik
[23:16] <Lunar_Lander> :)
[23:16] <Willdude123> Either that or I set it up wrongly.
[23:17] <Willdude123> Not even sure it can do 50.
[23:17] <Willdude123> There's little docs on the uart.
[23:17] <Lunar_Lander> wait
[23:17] <Lunar_Lander> you want to control the NTX2 via uart?
[23:18] <fsphil> many don't do 50
[23:19] <Willdude123> Not sure it can do 300.
[23:19] <Willdude123> Yeah lunar
[23:19] <Willdude123> http://hipstercircuits.com/enable-serialuarttty-on-beaglebone-black/
[23:19] <Willdude123> This is what I followed.
[23:19] <mfa298_> I think even the AVR will struggle with 50 unless you drop the cpu clock down a lot
[23:20] <Laurenceb_> fucking hipsters
[23:20] <Laurenceb_> id gas the lot of them
[23:20] <Willdude123> 300 is pretty impossible
[23:21] <Willdude123> By the lpooks of it.
[23:21] <mfa298_> in that case you probably have to bit bang it, but that requires realtime stuff
[23:22] <mfa298_> so for linux based stuff you might need to do that in kernel space
[23:22] <Willdude123> Laurenceb_, no swearing in the chan please, and please don't feel the need to express your extremist views.
[23:22] <Willdude123> Angstrom is an rtos
[23:22] <Willdude123> Bit bang?
[23:22] <qyx_> angstrom rtos?
[23:23] <Willdude123> I think so.
[23:23] <mfa298_> bitbang is the method usually done on the avr/arduino
[23:23] <qyx_> isn't it linux based?
[23:23] <mfa298_> even if it's an rtos for that level timing I suspect you need to do that in kernel space rather than userlane
[23:23] <mfa298_> s/userlane/userland/
[23:24] <Willdude123> Okay
[23:24] <Willdude123> Dammit I don't wanna write rtty code all over again.
[23:24] <Willdude123> Also, on the radio high and low are inverted for some reaason.
[23:25] <Laurenceb_> Willdude123: but i do feel the need
[23:25] <qyx_> 50 baud is probably doable from userspace on linux
[23:25] <Lunar_Lander> I am wondering why tying up an UART for the NTX2
[23:25] <Lunar_Lander> any digital pin will do
[23:25] <mfa298_> if I suspect right you really don't want to be doing stuff in kernel space until you really understand C well. Get it wrong and it's kernel panic time.
[23:26] <craag> Upu: Can cut that bit off if you want (slagging off bearded hams)
[23:26] <fsphil> Lunar_Lander: if a uart is available, it makes sense to use it
[23:26] <Lunar_Lander> well on mine I got the GPS
[23:26] <Laurenceb_> hipsters are a symptom of everything wrong with the world
[23:26] <Willdude123> Well it isn't really available is it?
[23:26] <Lunar_Lander> why would you have to use the UART?
[23:26] <mfa298_> Lunar_Lander: the idea is there's some hardware designed for converting bytes into serial data why not use it rather than having to tie up the main cpu doing that
[23:26] <Laurenceb_> look at the instagrammed photo crap
[23:26] <fsphil> I didn't say have to
[23:26] <Laurenceb_> they can die in a fire
[23:26] <Lunar_Lander> hm well
[23:26] <fsphil> *if* it is available, then use it :)
[23:27] <fsphil> it's hardware designed to do that precise job
[23:27] <Lunar_Lander> just was thinking, the NTX2 has no internal processor, right?
[23:27] <Willdude123> Because it won't run at even 300 baud
[23:27] <fsphil> aye
[23:27] <Lunar_Lander> hm
[23:27] <mfa298_> on devices with 1 uart it makes more sense to use that for gps and bitbang the ntx2
[23:27] <fsphil> indeedy
[23:27] <Lunar_Lander> so what the code by Upu does in the tutorial is just what mfa298_ said right?
[23:27] <Lunar_Lander> that the values and so on are converted into keying the NTX2
[23:27] <fsphil> that's bit banging
[23:28] <Lunar_Lander> ah
[23:28] <fsphil> it's doing in software using fixed timing, what the uart does in hardware
[23:28] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[23:28] <fsphil> well the uart also has a receiver
[23:28] <fsphil> but I'm ignoring that
[23:28] <Willdude123> So what should I do?
[23:28] <fsphil> that baud rate do the specs day it supports?
[23:28] <fsphil> say*
[23:29] <Willdude123> There is no docs on the uart, as far as google knows.
[23:30] <craag> Willdude123: I sent you a ref earlier
[23:30] <mfa298_> there should be some sort of datasheet for it.
[23:30] Action: mfa298_ has generally found buying stuff that doesn't have a datasheet is a waste of money
[23:30] <craag> The underlying chipset does 300/600/1200/...
[23:31] <Willdude123> 300 is fine,
[23:31] <craag> mfa298_: There's a datasheet, it's 4500 pages!
[23:31] <Willdude123> Or would be.
[23:31] <Willdude123> If it worked.
[23:31] <craag> So the hw can do it, how to get it working is the difficult bit.
[23:31] <mfa298_> sounds like a useful datasheet then, although you might also want to invest in a laser printer
[23:31] <craag> anyway gn
[23:32] <Willdude123> night
[23:32] <qyx_> save the trees, don't print it
[23:33] Action: mfa298_ should probably invest in a dotmatrix printer, I've still got a box of tractor feed paper
[23:34] <Willdude123> hmm
[23:34] <Willdude123> So what should be my plan of attack.
[23:34] <Willdude123> ?
[23:35] <Willdude123> Can anyone do me a huge favour and see if the above wav file I posted earlier decodes at 300 baud?
[23:35] <Willdude123> Or someomne provide a sample of 300 baud sao I can hear if it is.
