[02:08] Stratos (ad208ac4@gateway/web/freenode/ip. joined #highaltitude.
[02:09] <Stratos> Hey everyone, I am about to purchase a radio tx for a HAB launch in Canada. Was looking at using the NTX2 434.650Mhz, does anyone know if it requires a licence?
[02:10] <Stratos> (to use it)
[02:11] <KT5TK_QRL> Yes, you need a Canadian Ham license for this. However you could try 915 MHz on the American Continent.
[02:12] <KT5TK_QRL> 915 MHz is license exempt
[02:20] Stratos (ad208ac4@gateway/web/freenode/ip. left irc: Quit: Page closed
[02:20] Stratos (ad208ac4@gateway/web/freenode/ip. joined #highaltitude.
[02:21] <Stratos> Ok thank you. Would a 915mHz have similar performance?
[02:22] <DL7AD> theoretical you have 3dB less
[02:22] <DL7AD> but thats not that high
[02:23] <DL7AD> *much
[02:23] <KT5TK_QRL> You can always try to make your Ham license and use APRS on 144.39 MHz. It's not too hard if you have some reasonable understanding of electronics
[02:24] <KT5TK_QRL> The advantage of APRS is that you have hundreds of receiving stations available 24/7
[02:24] <KT5TK_QRL> See http://aprs.fi
[02:27] <Stratos> hmm, and can the 434 use APRS as well?
[02:27] <KT5TK_QRL> Technically yes, but all Hams are listening on 144.390
[02:29] <KT5TK_QRL> Check out http://code.google.com/p/trackuino/
[02:30] <KT5TK_QRL> they're using a Radiometrix module as well and they do APRS
[02:30] <Stratos> I guess APRS would be pretty convient, because you wouldn't need a receiver module i'm guessing? But then people can steal your payload :p
[02:30] <Stratos> and it doesn't require a licence?
[02:30] <KT5TK_QRL> I don't think many are interested in your payload.
[02:32] <KT5TK_QRL> APRS requires a license
[02:33] <Stratos> True.. so do you think the HX1 144.39 would have a similar range as the NTX2 434.650 or 915mHz?
[02:34] <KT5TK_QRL> HX1 has 300 mW and is significantly stronger
[02:34] <KT5TK_QRL> Uses more power though
[02:35] <Stratos> Awesome, thank you so much for your help.
[02:36] <Stratos> Time to start studying for that HAM test.. :p
[02:36] <KT5TK_QRL> I recommend to try to make a Ham license. You won't regret it.
[02:36] <Stratos> yeah it seems pretty interesting
[02:38] <KT5TK_QRL> check out https://www.rac.ca to find some local Ham club. They're certainly happy to help you
[02:38] DL7AD (42f96424@gateway/web/freenode/ip. left irc: Ping timeout: 250 seconds
[02:44] <Stratos> hmm.. but the HX1 would not be able to transmit live pictures
[02:44] <Stratos> if I went with the APRS
[02:47] <heathkid> so use the HX1 for tracking and something on 70cm for video (though if you want LIVE video... that's different)
[02:47] <heathkid> live pictures can be done
[02:48] <heathkid> with mixed results from what I've seen... record them all to uSD card. :)
[02:50] <heathkid> Stratos: if you want to see APRS in action, go to aprs.fi
[02:54] <Stratos> Yeah i had a look at that.. pretty sweet. We wanted to try and transmit a few HD pictures every 20 minutues or so. So would a HX1 and a matching receiver unit be needed.. because I dont have any HAM radio gear myself
[03:02] <heathkid> have a scanner?
[03:02] <heathkid> I'm not using my ham gear... just a bearcat scanner for RX
[03:03] <heathkid> well... and a 2m J-Pole antenna
[03:05] <heathkid> looks like you can pick up a scanner for <$50
[03:05] <heathkid> easily

[04:17] <arko> welcome to the cool time zone 8)
[04:17] <Randomskk> yo arko, why don't you move to canada, it's really nice
[04:17] <arko> LeoBodnar: your habs love france
[04:17] <arko> Randomskk: srsly
[04:17] <arko> i would if i could
[04:17] <Randomskk> the downside to your timezone is that all my friends are asleep when I want to chat with them :p
[04:17] <DL7AD> good morning
[04:17] <Randomskk> travelling solo brings that into sharp focus
[04:17] <arko> LeoBodnar: odd that it isn't rising in altitude much
[04:18] <arko> Randomskk: that part does suck :/
[04:18] <arko> you guys are always cool to talk to in the morning and night
[04:19] <LeoBodnar> It must have been stretched from the previous day to the limit arko. It's the weirdest alt profile I have ever seen
[04:19] <arko> i work during the times you guys sleep, so it works out
[04:19] <DL7AD> the balloon does not like france. its flying strait back :D
[04:19] <LeoBodnar> XD DL7AD are you still controlling RX in France?
[04:19] <arko> LeoBodnar: yeah, totally noticable from the higher night altitude, but i expected a much high 2nd daytime altitude
[04:19] <DL7AD> yes
[04:19] <DL7AD> from houston.... houston control
[04:19] <Randomskk> arko: my friends wake up after I go to bed here
[04:20] <Randomskk> though the 6am start for this train does not help!
[04:20] <arko> maybe between daytime 1 and nighttime 2
[04:20] <Randomskk> anyway bbl
[04:20] <arko> haha
[04:20] <arko> cheers
[04:20] <arko> DL7AD you really in houston?
[04:20] <LeoBodnar> Cool! Thanks for your help in setting the Rx up!
[04:20] <DL7AD> yes ;)
[04:20] <arko> DL7AD you nasa?
[04:21] <DL7AD> np. im currently guest at KT5TK. i met him in germany first time.
[04:21] <DL7AD> im doing my intership here in his facility. but not at nasa
[04:21] <DL7AD> unfortunately ^^
[04:21] <LeoBodnar> I had a friend in JPL and they got laid off after Shuttle program closed
[04:21] <arko> ahhh
[04:21] <arko> cool :)
[04:21] <DL7AD> i will fly back in 5 weeks
[04:21] <DL7AD> to germany
[04:22] <DL7AD> my call here is acutally AF5LI
[04:22] <arko> LeoBodnar: they worked on shuttle stuff at JPL??
[04:23] <LeoBodnar> Yes, he was on shuttle assigned projects there
[04:23] <DL7AD> LeoBodnar: the balloon was shifing at night really strong. about 100...150hz per cycle
[04:23] <arko> LeoBodnar: wow, thats pretty rare here
[04:23] <DL7AD> 100hz more likely
[04:23] <arko> there was a huge wave of layoff (i was fortunate to survive)
[04:24] <arko> 1500 employee's laid off over 2 years
[04:24] <LeoBodnar> It switches GPS off during the night to save power so frequency control is also switched off.
[04:25] <LeoBodnar> arko: it was around 2004 when I got in touch with him
[04:25] <DL7AD> how likely is it, the balloon is landing on leo's roof? :D
[04:25] <arko> ahh
[04:25] <arko> yeah, a year after MER
[04:25] <arko> big layoffs
[04:25] <arko> then again in 2009
[04:25] <LeoBodnar> I have helped him to set up a fem iMacs in the lab :)
[04:26] <arko> :D nice!
[04:26] <arko> so you've been to jpl

[04:27] <DL7AD> LeoBodnar: i was astonished as well
[04:27] <LeoBodnar> Yes, he was talking very highly of his colleagues
[04:28] <arko> i'm probably the dumbest person there
[04:28] <arko> and i like it
[04:28] <arko> lots of smart people to learn from
[04:29] <LeoBodnar> B-6 track over Paris reminds me what you usually see on GPS when driving through a complex motorway junction
[04:29] <arko> haha
[04:30] <LeoBodnar> Or highway
[04:30] <DL7AD> :D
[04:30] <DL7AD> or autobahn xD
[04:30] <LeoBodnar> Ja!
[04:31] <DL7AD> but americans junctions are also complex
[04:32] <LeoBodnar> B-6 drives on the wrong side of the road! XD
[04:32] <LeoBodnar> Well the right side for the rest of the worlds :)

[04:34] <DL7AD> when i have been in uk last time. every time look left and right two times when crossing.
[04:34] <DL7AD> :D
[04:34] <LeoBodnar> Probably, but I am amazed that trackers are still tracking it. It's such a collective effort. I really like it!
[04:35] <LeoBodnar> Yes, it catches you up DL7AD so it is better just look both ways :)
[04:35] <arko> ahh!
[04:35] <arko> its finally rising

[05:31] <G4MYS_Andy> its only the shortest white stick but got another computer comming today so I cantrack two, problem is where to put 2nd aerial! but have portable 30ft mast so will play with that once configgured new machine
[05:32] <Randomskk> or just split the antenna? only ike 3dB oss
[05:32] <Randomskk> guess pointing is an issue then though
[05:35] <G4MYS_Andy> Randomskk yes id thought about splitting and had a souce of splitter in mind, but poor results yesterday put me off that one.. I am going to cut down a FM receive aerial, then shove a TV preamp in to see what gives and have a play before going on to a new spare white stick that with effort could go on the mast at the side of my house but thank for the suggesting
[05:36] <G4MYS_Andy> the main thought was the other rex is not so good when I experimented with it - so want max signal! HI

[05:58] <DL7AD> LeoBodnar thats what F5VMH asked me yesterday
[05:59] <LeoBodnar> He can keep it if he wants :)

[05:59] <DL7AD> may i prepare him just in case?
[06:00] <G4MYS_Andy> if I canbe so bold... no one thats e why France is getting littered with old Raspberry PIEs and ballons !!!!!
[06:00] <LeoBodnar> Lol sure but I doubt it will be easy to find
[06:01] <LeoBodnar> Oh do they all end up there eventually?
[06:01] <DL7AD> it wont be if you lost contact at 2000m.
[06:01] <LeoBodnar> Direction finding then :)

[06:02] <LeoBodnar> B-1 stopped transmitting data at 11000m and we found it with a Yagi only but it had a continuous carrier on
[06:03] <DL7AD> there are two good possibilities. 1. launch another ballon which is tracking it. 2nd. fly over the area with a airplane. but unfortunately im not in europe
[06:06] <jcoxon> how do you find it if its below the waterfall?
[06:07] <LeoBodnar> for rx?
[06:08] <jcoxon> yeah
[06:08] <jcoxon> as its coming back into range on the UK
[06:08] <jcoxon> thought i'd turn my radio on
[06:08] <LeoBodnar> trust your receiver and tx freq stability and set exact rx frequency blind
[06:09] <jcoxon> hehe so 434.500
[06:09] <jcoxon> whats the offset?
[06:09] <LeoBodnar> 1500 Hz -ish on USB
[06:10] <LeoBodnar> I can't remember, I haven't received it for almost 24 hours now
[06:10] <LeoBodnar> G4MYS_Andy: what is your modem centre freq now?
[06:11] <G4MYS_Andy> 1428 but there is nothing there I am on 434.500603
[06:12] <G4MYS_Andy> and its been that freq for hours and hours I think
[06:12] <jcoxon> well i'll leave it on

[06:12] <jcoxon> time for work, good luck LeoBodnar
[06:13] <LeoBodnar> I think design was for 1250Hz centre on 434.500MHz but inexplicably the result has been more like 1500

[06:16] <eroomde> LeoBodnar: me too
[06:16] <iain_g4sgx> Morning all, still on its way back. Nice..
[06:17] <eroomde> i haven't had any yet
[06:17] <eroomde> but it's sitting in the cafetiere infront of me
[06:17] <eroomde> the seconds ticking down
[06:17] <LeoBodnar> yep, life is hard sometimes
[06:17] <LeoBodnar> but you need to force yourself you know

[06:18] <LeoBodnar> Haha! Is this yours?
[06:19] <eroomde> nope, found it online
[06:19] <eroomde> nearly bought it but for silly shipping
[06:20] <eroomde> very appropriate for work though
[06:20] <eroomde> we're all quite dependant
[06:20] <eroomde> and don't function well before
[06:21] <LeoBodnar> yep sad fact
[06:22] <eroomde> sad but true
[06:22] <LeoBodnar> Coffee cups should have short range comms sensors and talk to each other
[06:22] <SpeedEvil> LeoBodnar: They do.
[06:22] <eroomde> and there's nothing like the distant noise of the coffee grinder going on at work to give you a boost
[06:22] <SpeedEvil> LeoBodnar: Long-wave IR.
[06:22] <SpeedEvil> (not, admittedly well)
[06:22] <LeoBodnar> XD
[06:22] <LeoBodnar> IR radar
[06:23] <eroomde> this coffee i just made is actually really nice
[06:23] <eroomde> i think letting the water in the kittle cool down about 10 degrees helps a lot
[06:23] Action: SpeedEvil sighs.
[06:23] <LeoBodnar> Who can explain how the wind can make 90 degrees turn at 00:00 UTC on the same altitude
[06:24] Action: SpeedEvil is in the point of wondering if the violent vomiting, and the really large quantitiy of marinated meat he made last night is correlated.

[06:25] <eroomde> i have been there
[06:25] <SpeedEvil> I'm trying to go back to sleep - so I diddn't do coffee.
[06:25] <eroomde> it wasn't particularly
[06:26] <SpeedEvil> It's also wierd, as I want to snuggle up in bed with lots of covers on, but it's way too hot. It doesn't feel right to be sick without covers.
[06:26] <eroomde> is it coming down proper or just adjusting?
[06:27] Action: SpeedEvil needs to do a launch at some time.
[06:28] <eroomde> i want to go somewhere a bit more wild
[06:28] <eroomde> (than england)
[06:28] <LeoBodnar> Maybe turbulence or maybe GPS quirks
[06:28] <LeoBodnar> Wales?
[06:28] <eroomde> and live in the woods for a few days
[06:29] <eroomde> maybe wales
[06:29] <iain_g4sgx> Hopefully its still flying this afternoon and back in range for me.

[06:30] <eroomde> and been replaced by laurenceb from 2006
[06:30] <eroomde> all young and enthusiastic
[06:30] <eroomde> it's like a crap version of The Terminator
[06:31] <LeoBodnar> What timezone is he in ? He stayed coherent at 1am last night when everybody dozed off
[06:31] <eroomde> laurenceb when in the zone is unstoppable

[06:31] <eroomde> he used to churn habs out like you

[06:31] <eroomde> or a glider
[06:32] <eroomde> or some new mode
[06:32] <bertrik> so, B-6 is going home, interesting flight path
[06:32] <LeoBodnar> It's a mid-month crisis. All men go through it 12 times a year
[06:32] <eroomde> or he'd do a simulation of the payload oscillation under a parachute
[06:32] <eroomde> and the parachute would be a tesco bag affixed with blue-tak
[06:33] <eroomde> suprisingly the payload came down without the parachute
[06:33] <LeoBodnar> Haha! Is he from the theoretical side of the world?
[06:33] <eroomde> or he'd launch and then walk over (every launch used to happen at cambridge back in the day) and look at the laptop then announce to me and james 'oh, i forgot to include altitude in the telemetry'
[06:34] <eroomde> he's an oxford physicist. they are like that
[06:34] <eroomde> oh but i remember he did actually include 'seconds to landing' if it were ti burst now. from which we could reverse-engineer the altitude
[06:34] <eroomde> innocenter days
[06:35] <eroomde> to be fair to laurence's construction values, the rogallo was really very very nicely built
[06:35] <LeoBodnar> Lol I know what you mean. I used to be a trained to be a theoretical physicist
[06:35] <eroomde> i was very impressed
[06:36] <LeoBodnar> But I have escaped the darkness
[06:36] <eroomde> it had a power switch and charging jack on the surface

[06:43] <Randomskk> quite
[06:44] <eroomde> that was basically why we wrote the predictor
[06:44] <Randomskk> have you seen the new fast version?
[06:44] <eroomde> yes
[06:44] <Randomskk> did you enjoy how it works?
[06:44] <eroomde> yes
[06:44] <eroomde> but i should point out that that's how it used to work
[06:44] <Randomskk> back to where we started
[06:44] <Randomskk> these things always go full circle
[06:44] <Randomskk> yes my point exactly
[06:44] <eroomde> and it was only slow for the rjw shiny version
[06:44] <Randomskk> get_gribs.py or whatever
[06:45] <Randomskk> rjw did this sexy "only get the data we want" thing
[06:45] <eroomde> i would be v interested in the winds-only global dataset mirrored on the server
[06:45] <eroomde> yes i don;t think the srcf would have been happy with whole-earth gribs
[06:45] <Randomskk> yea sounds like we mgight do that. just a legal thing I guess
[06:45] <Randomskk> hehe
[06:45] <Randomskk> no
[06:46] <Randomskk> though daniel is actually o the srcf committee now
[06:46] <eroomde> still
[06:46] <Randomskk> yea it's a bit much
[06:46] <Randomskk> we have that mb mac mini too though. haha
[06:46] <eroomde> but yes, i could combine the cutdown-whole-earth dataset with the shuttle dataset
[06:46] <eroomde> and be laughing
[06:47] <Randomskk> inded
[06:47] <eroomde> (we're writing a rocket flight trajectory code at work)
[06:47] <Randomskk> sounds fun
[06:47] <Randomskk> suspect the "travelling at wind velocity" bit gos a little out of the window
[06:47] <eroomde> yes very much
[06:47] <eroomde> and you want to model 6 degrees of freedom

[06:48] <Randomskk> how is your gps coming along? if you can say
[06:49] <eroomde> oh alright infact. we've changed focus a bit to accomodate it to a specific project

[06:50] <Randomskk> c server rather than like, ram?
[06:50] <Randomskk> like a file ona ramdisk
[06:50] <eroomde> depends on how fast python is at replying
[06:50] <Randomskk> writing very fast c servers can be annoying for multiclients iirc?
[06:51] <eroomde> it's not so much the mmap as the able to respond to thousands of requests/sec
[06:51] <Randomskk> I wodnr if you could use a key value store like redis or memcache
[06:51] <eroomde> yes i wonder too
[06:51] <eroomde> i will check out redis
[06:51] <Randomskk> hmm probably not ideal though
[06:51] <Randomskk> something like that
[06:52] <Randomskk> anyway I should get to bed, train departs at like 0620 tomorrow
[06:52] <Randomskk> sigh
[06:52] <eroomde> to where?
[06:52] <Randomskk> banff
[06:52] <Randomskk> I'm in kamloops atm
[06:52] <Randomskk> the train stop sovernight and we get put up in a hotel
[06:52] <eroomde> heard that's v pretty
[06:52] <Randomskk> which is silly but means we go through the rockies in the daylight which is the point
[06:53] <Randomskk> nicest hotel of my trip though, on account of not being of my choosing
[06:53] <Randomskk> soon as I hit banff it's a bunk in a 6 person shared room in a hostel
[06:53] <eroomde> lol
[06:53] <eroomde> being able to afford your own room is the nicest perk of a salery for me
[06:53] <eroomde> so far anyway
[06:53] <Randomskk> though frankly had I taken cheaper transport to get t obanff I could have stayed in very nice hotels for the whole five nights
[06:53] <Randomskk> the train is friggin expensive
[06:54] <eroomde> how much?
[06:54] <Randomskk> 800 gbp for the cheapest service
[06:54] <eroomde> OUCH!
[06:54] <Randomskk> two days, one night in a hotel, breakfast and lunch and snacks and some wine served
[06:54] <UpuWork> wow
[06:54] <Randomskk> yea
[06:54] <Randomskk> rocky mountaineer
[06:54] <UpuWork> makes UK look reasonable
[06:54] <Randomskk> best views of the rockies apparnetly but, christ
[06:54] <eroomde> god the 2.5k km chicago/SF train i took was about 1/3 of that
[06:54] <UpuWork> how many miles is that though ?
[06:54] <eroomde> including food and a private bunk
[06:54] <UpuWork> sorry Km
[06:54] <Randomskk> my trans siberian was like half that for a week
[06:55] <Randomskk> but it's like, not a passenger service realy
[06:55] <Randomskk> canada doesn't really do passenger trains
[06:55] <Randomskk> all people carrying trains have to give way to freight trains, even, and those things are like a mile long
[06:55] <eroomde> same in the US
[06:55] <Randomskk> but yea everyone drives or flies
[06:55] <Randomskk> I haev a minibus tour drive thing back to vancouver after banff
[06:55] <Randomskk> for $200 or something
[06:55] <Randomskk> also with a night in a hostel
[06:56] <eroomde> that's more like it
[06:56] <Randomskk> exactly
[06:56] <Randomskk> maybe should have done that both ways
[06:56] <Randomskk> but I've been told the train is worth doing
[06:56] <Randomskk> and I can kinda see it, it is very cool
[06:56] <Randomskk> still
[06:56] <Randomskk> might have been worth saving until retirement like every other bloody person on the train

[06:57] <Randomskk> so yea, could probably have afforded hotel rooms in banff and vancouver really

[09:49] <Ugi> do we know what balloon & payload weight for icarus?
[09:49] <Chetic> where can I find the specs for the lightest HAB payload yet? :]
[09:49] <Ugi> I reckon you have it with B-6
[09:49] <HixWork> Chetic, http://leobodnar.com/balloons/
[09:49] <daveake> B-5 was lighter
[09:50] <Chetic> 404'd HixWork
[09:50] <Ugi> sorry - forgot about the battery
[09:50] <Ugi> This is the same with a AAA : http://leobodnar.com/balloons/B-2/
[09:50] <LeoBodnar> This is the lightest I had so far Chetic http://leobodnar.com/balloons/B-4/
[09:51] <LeoBodnar> 12.5 grams
[09:51] <daveake> So here we have LeoBodnar flying payloads where the heaviest thing is the teeny weeny battery, and over the pond on the GPSL mailing list someone is complaining that the CUSF burst calculator only goes up to 11lbs (5kg)
[09:51] <Chetic> sweet, LeoBodnar :D

[10:00] <Chetic> hah. let me know!
[10:00] <eroomde> Babs__: don't be ashamed
[10:00] <eroomde> heavy payloads are usually more interesting
[10:00] <eroomde> unless they're just a really big camera and PC104 just doing rtty
[10:00] <eroomde> that would be silly though
[10:00] <daveake> with valve transmitter
[10:01] <G0TDJ_Steve> Right, have to go for a while. BBL Guys
[10:01] <eroomde> i have wondered about a completely analogue hab
[10:01] Nick change: G0TDJ_Steve -> G0TDJ_AFK
[10:01] <eroomde> just for shiggles
[10:01] <Chetic> lol shiggles
[10:01] <Ugi> how do you make an analog GPS?
[10:01] <eroomde> i wouldn't
[10:01] <eroomde> i'd do range measuring
[10:02] <Ugi> OK.
[10:02] <eroomde> so a ground station sends a tone, and the payload receives and retransmits it at a different freq
[10:02] <eroomde> and with the right tone you can extract range from that
[10:02] <Ugi> I see
[10:02] <eroomde> 3 ground stations and bob's your uncle
[10:02] <Ugi> If you know the turn-around time
[10:02] <daveake> clever
[10:02] <eroomde> .... having said that
[10:02] <Chetic> I'm really curious what precision that would achieve
[10:02] <eroomde> well not, 7400 series chips are not really analogue
[10:02] <eroomde> well no*
[10:03] <Ugi> you could have it transmit the time and make a backwards GPS!
[10:03] <Babs__> Did someone say challenge accepted? http://www.joshingtalk.com/2012/03/jtsa-challenge-me-sir-richard-b.html
[10:03] <Chetic> I want indoors GPS
[10:03] <eroomde> yes, if the grund stations were all on coherent clocks then it's super easy
[10:03] <eroomde> you could send anything from the hab

[10:10] <Laurenceb> there was a slight upward fluctuation

[10:11] <Laurenceb> then sharp descent
[10:11] <daveake> I gave up on icarus couldn't see a thing

[10:11] <Laurenceb> i think a seam broke

[10:16] <steve_____> Thought some people here may like
[10:16] <Babs__> I figure for ease surely the easiest is get one a latex and then surround it with a smooth net
[10:16] <Babs__> ?
[10:16] <Laurenceb> eroomde: but a pico scale superpressure would be easier
[10:17] <Laurenceb> if you could find a good bonding material
[10:17] <Chetic> ..do I really need to buy special gloves to handle the balloon?
[10:17] <Laurenceb> i think some smith and nephew urethane heat seal would work
[10:17] <Laurenceb> im doing a lot of with with them atm
[10:18] <eroomde> Chetic: no
[10:18] <eroomde> but son't be too sweaty
[10:18] <eroomde> don't*
[10:18] <eroomde> Laurenceb: yes smaller might be easier
[10:18] <eroomde> the optimal shape is spherical too
[10:18] <eroomde> for super pressure
[10:18] <eroomde> which is nice
[10:18] <eroomde> rather than pumpkin as you scale up
[10:18] <eroomde> optimum from a stress concentration PoV
[10:18] <Chetic> "don't be too sweaty"...
[10:18] <Chetic> that's what she said
[10:19] <Chetic> ;_;
[10:19] <Babs__> eroomde - have you ever done a skyanchor?
[10:19] <Jess--> this is probably a stupid question.... has anyone tried flying a condom?
[10:19] <steve_____> also this: http://wiki.raspberrytorte.com/index.php?title=ADS-B
[10:19] <Laurenceb> lol
[10:19] <eroomde> Babs__: what is one of those?
[10:20] <UpuWork> amusingly I mentioned that and this is why my office drawer has 20+ condoms in it (one of my engineers other half works for family planning)
[10:20] <eroomde> that is not the google link i wanted
[10:20] <Jess--> it was just a thought based on the amount they can stretch and the strength of them
[10:21] <Babs__> So you have a free pressure balloon at the top full of helium, linked by string to a small super pressure one at the bottom (could be foil (I guess)), or another latex surrounded by a net
[10:21] <UpuWork> steve_____ - may help : http://ava.upuaut.net/store/index.php?route=product/product&path=72_73&product_id=85
[10:21] <steve_____> ha - I have one already :)
[10:21] <Piet0r> I can hear ICARUS on my porto :)
[10:21] <steve_____> your prototype
[10:21] <UpuWork> oh yes
[10:21] <Babs__> The top balloon lifts the bottom balloon, but as it goes higher the lower balloon inflates to a fixed volume and then becomes less and less relatively buoyant as the balloon rises
[10:22] <Babs__> and eventually levels out
[10:22] <UpuWork> man of many nicknames
[10:22] <Piet0r> In The Netherlands
[10:22] <Babs__> the cool thing is that as the sun goes down and the lower balloon becomes more and more relatively buoyant
[10:22] <Babs__> then the latex one on top expands and so it should eliminate any yo yoing
[10:22] <Babs__> (that is the theory)
[10:23] <UpuWork> I wouldn't be surprised if F6AGV goes out and recovers B-6

[10:55] <Hix> It seems to be bouncing around Flight Level 17-22 pretty sure there is a lot of traffic in that range arount there
[10:56] <LeoBodnar> But your arm is cut off!
[10:56] <Ugi> it's quite a slipstream that knocked it down 2Km!

[10:56] <daveake> $$pansy
[10:56] <Hix> could be being dragged by the wake of s flight in descent
[10:57] <fsphil> it might have had a close encounter

[12:27] <HixWork> I see it now. B6 is going to write LEO all over the channel

[12:36] <Willdude123> Hey y'all
[12:37] <Ugi> afternoon Willdude123
[12:37] <Willdude123> Just thinking about what's wrong with my BBB serial.
[12:39] <Maxell> Intresting winds at B-6 :)
[12:39] <Willdude123> I guess it could be a timin issue but my ftdi rxed it fine.
[12:39] <Willdude123> *timing
[12:40] <mfa298> Willdude123: try the things you were told first night.
[12:40] <Piet0r> I'm wondering why B-6 does not get higher then 7KM
[12:41] <Willdude123> Ah yes.
[12:41] <mfa298> also remember the different types of link will work in slightly different ways, with the ftdi cable it's all over copper so it should work better than over the radio
[12:41] <craag> Piet0r: There's someone up there with a baseball bat knocking it back down!
[12:41] <gonzo__> very underinflated balloon I guess. Hence the float
[12:42] <Ugi> Piet0r: the foil balloon does not stretch very much but is strong enough to maintain an over-pressure
[12:42] <Willdude123> Right.
[12:42] <Willdude123> I'll try minicom
[12:42] <Willdude123> And err.
[12:42] <gonzo__> I was assuming B6 is a latex pico?
[12:42] <mfa298> also buy a notebook so when people tell you things to try you can write them down!
[12:43] <craag> gonzo__: No, foil.
[12:43] <gonzo__> ah, then the altitude is suprising
[12:43] <gonzo__> super light payload?
[12:43] <craag> Yeah, makes me want to give it a go with a light payload!
[12:44] lz1dev (~rgp@188-221-236-112.zone12.bethere.co.uk) joined #highaltitude.
[12:44] <craag> This one is 20g with AA.
[12:44] <Willdude123> mfa298: Yeah, I'll check the logs.
[12:44] <gonzo__> really doing well for a single AA
[12:44] <gonzo__> what's his tx? NTX2?
[12:44] <craag> About another 8 hours I think
[12:44] <Willdude123> But they're blocked.

[12:52] <iain_G4SGX> Quick question, does DL-Flidgi install ok on 64 bit ubuntu? Never had a problem before but doesn't wanna know this time.

[12:54] <LeoBodnar> Lemo M connector images are banned by most ISPs
[12:54] <Babs__> what do they do?
[12:54] <eroomde> connect
[12:54] <mfa298> iain_G4SGX: I would assume it should (although I don't use ubuntu much) are you compiling source or using the .debs ?
[12:54] <HixWork> eroomde, lol
[12:54] <LeoBodnar> Male parts mates with femail
[12:54] <Babs__> dont encourage him Hixwork
[12:55] <Babs__> single wire with single wire, multiple controller wires, can they rotate?
[12:55] <eroomde> they're just connectors for cables
[12:55] <Ugi> B-6 has been going down again for a while
[12:55] <LeoBodnar> *female
[12:55] <eroomde> but very lightweight, vibration proof, waterproof
[12:55] <HixWork> Babs__, the simple asnwer is the increase your budget on a log scale :)
[12:55] <HixWork> and look very shiny and purdy
[12:55] <Babs__> Hixwork - nothing can be as expensive as BABSHAB
[12:55] <HixWork> it just did
[12:56] <eroomde> cables and connectors are usually the biggest cause of failures and intermitted errors in non-trivial mechatronicsy environemtns
[12:56] <eroomde> (rocket, cars, planes, whatever)
[12:56] <Babs__> but why do *i* need it over everyone else?
[12:56] <HixWork> i've always found scotch connectors to be sufficient
[12:56] Action: HixWork trolls
[12:56] <Babs__> or is it just you know I like shiny things
[12:56] <iain_G4SGX> mfa298: I was trying to ass the ppa, Im sure last time i did that and it appeared on software center. will look for the deb file. If not I'll try compile it but rather not!
[12:56] <eroomde> so you initially think 'how much!?!?' and then have a few failed field expeditions with kit and spend a few overnights on remote sites fixing wiring problems
[12:56] <eroomde> then you discover mulspec connectors
[12:56] <iain_G4SGX> *add
[12:56] <eroomde> then the end
[12:56] <eroomde> happily ever after
[12:56] <HixWork> mmmmmmmmm shiny
[12:57] <x-f> B-6 temperature doesn't match with the one from the first dive - http://i.imgur.com/uBAN53x.png
[12:57] <eroomde> and these are particularly awesome
[12:57] <HixWork> you know you're going to now Babs__ :D
[12:57] <eroomde> they're so light, very shiny, and the mating is wonderful
[12:57] <x-f> LeoBodnar, i've added time and possibly fixed time on the X axe
[12:57] <Geoff-G8DHE-M> Ah looks like B-6 is descending then :-(
[12:57] <eroomde> connector bit is keyed and slides in, then the other sheath screws on, but it's a multi-thrad screw and it's ratcheted
[12:57] <Babs__> you are too young to know about expert mating, I will buy some and give you the considered view
[12:57] <eroomde> so it's like 1 turn and completely locked and waterprrof
[12:58] <HixWork> :D told you
[12:58] <mfa298> iain_G4SGX: I think all the debs are probably in the ppa - although it's not clear from the page if they're 32 or 64 bit
[12:58] <LeoBodnar> thanks so much x-f !!
[12:58] <eroomde> they're quite expensive from farnell/digikey/mouser
[12:58] <eroomde> i think we're gonna get ours direct from hub
[12:58] <eroomde> hub electronics being the distributor for all sorts of nice connectors
[12:58] <fsphil> B-6 going down again
[12:59] <Alchamist> It's because B6 is far too interesting to enter Brussels airspace ...
[12:59] <eroomde> Babs__: you might also like the lemo K series
[12:59] <eroomde> they're push-pull
[13:00] <Babs__> eroomde - i have just bought a new house, I dont have spare funds for your expensive cables
[13:00] <Ugi> x-f: I wonder if the rise in temp at the first drop really was the heat of a jet exhaust!
[13:00] <eroomde> maybe get a panel-mount female and a cable-mount male and use it to talk to babshab without taking it apart
[13:00] <Babs__> although the irony in all that is that the ring main in the basement keeps tripping out
[13:00] <HixWork> ITT do some good IP rated connectors without resorting to motgage applications
[13:00] <Babs__> ironically, because of cr@ppy cables and connectors
[13:01] <Babs__> babshab and I mainly communicate by telepathy these days

[13:04] <gonzo__> Ohh a cellar. Would love to have a callar!
[13:04] <x-f> Ugi, i don't think it was that
[13:04] <gonzo__> even with dodgy electrics
[13:05] <eroomde> we have a cellar in france (am half french)
[13:05] <eroomde> it flooded
[13:05] <eroomde> thus taking out all the electrics
[13:06] <gonzo__> I started digging test holes when I brought my place. No go. Dig a hole a spade depth, it's full fo water within 10 min

[14:37] <LeoBodnar> Battery is good but if it has more than 1g of water/ice on it it will come down
[14:37] <HixWork> what is the cutoff voltage LeoBodnar ? still at 1.41V
[14:37] <LeoBodnar> The problem is that if it's inside the rain cloud it will pretty much stay with the raincloud
[14:37] <Laurenceb> wonder if its in a cloud
[14:37] <Laurenceb> and coming out and hitting sun

[14:38] <Ugi> It may be getting wet, falling out below the cloud, then drying and rising back into it!
[14:39] <HixWork> so the battery should have a fair bit of juice left in it no?
[14:39] <Ugi> HixWork: it will go down when it gets colder I expect
[14:39] <Ugi> the voltage that is
[14:39] <LeoBodnar> Yes, looks like it, so if it lands maybe somebody can go and find it

[14:46] <Ugi> cutoff voltage may be 0.8v but I think those Li batteries go off a cliff around 1.2v. Still hopefully enough to see it through the night.

[14:49] <HixWork> you can get rainclouds at 4800m in my experience, though its normally snow

[15:47] <UpuWork> because the tests on the MAX6 enabled payloads using either AVR or PIC are about the same and indicated about 48 hours run time
[15:47] <UpuWork> from an AA
[15:48] <UpuWork> however I've theorycrafted actual consumption may be less due to less reaqusition of satellies
[15:48] <chrisg7ogx> with a pink rabbit?
[15:48] <UpuWork> satellites
[15:48] <UpuWork> now in theory the MAX7 should be slightly better again
[15:48] <PB0NER> chrisg7ogx i'm on 434500.4
[15:48] <UpuWork> however its current usage is all over the place
[15:48] <HixWork> is B6 running a 7
[15:48] <chrisg7ogx> did b6 go into a snooze mode during the night?
[15:48] <UpuWork> but averaged out it *seems* to be slightly better @ 1.8V than the MAX6G
[15:49] <chrisg7ogx> pb0ner tks

[16:00] <mfa298> it's similar to using the serial option in putty (or Hyperterminal)
[16:01] <PB0NER> is beagleboard serial TTL?
[16:01] <mfa298> although on most systems I've used by default minicom will try and send various strings as it assumes you'll be using it with a dialup modem

[16:36] <Willdude123> daveake: yeah
[16:36] <iain_g4sgx> down again..
[16:36] <PB0NER> yep I know, but I mean what Python code, I'm interested
[16:36] <daveake> Oh he's writing a tracker for a BeagleBone Board
[16:37] <mfa298> craag: I think the 48 hours was based on a max6 with gps powersaving (but I assume no radio power saving) so with max 7 and having had the radio off some of the night it could go longer
[16:37] <daveake> Willdude123, So it was just dl-fldigi expecting 2 stop bits and the BBB sending one?
[16:37] <craag> mfa298: oooo :D
[16:37] <mfa298> I think that's the reasoning at least
[16:38] <Willdude123> Looks like it yeah

[16:48] <rogerponts> Hi, how this amplifier could be powered ? (http://ava.upuaut.net/store/index.php?route=product/product&path=72_73&product_id=83)
[16:49] <DL7AD> its coming down
[16:49] <Ugi> rogerponts: you can supply DC power in quite a wide range from an adaptor (jumpers to set voltage) or can take 5v from USB
[16:50] <rogerponts> How could I do it with de USB ? I need an special USB ?
[16:50] <Willdude123> python program is txing nicely.

[17:19] <LeoBodnar> It probably got sucked into the stormy cell of some sort

[19:13] <junderwood_M0JCU> If you set the modem centre frequency to 1536 and the dial to 434.500000, it will just appear in the middle
[19:13] <junderwood_M0JCU> (assuming your radio is calibrated the same as mine :)
[19:14] <mattbrejza> im 434.5 and modem central of 1288
[19:14] <junderwood_M0JCU> LeoBodnar, if you want to launch another one, you will have to pick a new frequency.
[19:15] <junderwood_M0JCU> I don't think the modem needs to be placed precisely.

[19:46] <PB0NER> with better 'ears' .....
[19:46] <Lunar_Lander> its strange
[19:47] <Lunar_Lander> now that I made my big dual core tracker, now I read about that interrupts may be easy
[19:47] <Lunar_Lander> and now I think about the future PCB, but again how to do it
[19:47] <Lunar_Lander> i.e. for Upu's GPS, do you just make 8 holes in a row or so?
[19:47] <Lunar_Lander> and these problems
[19:47] <daveake> Interrupts for rtty?
[19:48] <chrisstubbs> Lunar_Lander, if you are making a PCB you may as well SMD mount the ublox and antenna yourself
[19:48] <Lunar_Lander> yeah i.e. taking data while the radio is running
[19:48] <daveake> OK, and what processor?
[19:48] <Lunar_Lander> I would say atmega644 due to the number of I/O pins
[19:49] <daveake> and how many serial ports does that have?
[19:49] <Lunar_Lander> 2
[19:49] <daveake> and how many are you using?
[19:50] <Wouter-[pa3weg]1> PE2G, about the same as I get in performance from the ¨low¨ building
[19:50] <Wouter-[pa3weg]1> -1.6deg
[19:50] <Wouter-[pa3weg]1> DX, dunno, does not interest me too much

[19:50] <Lunar_Lander> the GPS uses one and the other one is vacant
[19:50] <Wouter-[pa3weg]1> but now it is at -0.2 from my spot
[19:50] <daveake> Now guess my next sentence :p
[19:50] <Lunar_Lander> but I think on a board you should like think ahead and have means to use all ports in the future
[19:51] <Lunar_Lander> yeah why not use atmeta328
[19:51] <Lunar_Lander> atmega
[19:51] <daveake> Lunar_Lander, You could use the spare one to send RTTY
[19:51] <daveake> No problem with using an I/O pin and a timer, but you have a spare UART waiting for something to do :)
[19:51] <fsphil> you'd still need an interrupt to feed it bytes, but it's vastly simpler than doing rtty the hard way
[19:52] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[19:52] <Lunar_Lander> does that allow for having two tasks at once?
[19:52] <fsphil> yes*

[19:52] <Lunar_Lander> ok
[19:53] <fsphil> interrupts don't happen at the same time as your other code, they stop (interrupt if you will) the running code while they run
[19:53] <fsphil> but it means your main code doesn't have to care
[19:54] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[19:54] mclane (~uli@p5B02E692.dip0.t-ipconnect.de) joined #highaltitude.
[19:54] <Lunar_Lander> and that is sort of the main problem
[19:54] <fsphil> this also means your interrupts should be very short
[19:54] <Lunar_Lander> and the cause I made that two chip tracker
[19:54] <fsphil> or they wlil have an impact on the main code
[19:54] <rharrison_> A few pics from todays school launch. Don't ask
[19:54] <Lunar_Lander> yea so there is no time for sending out 20 seconds of data lineß

[19:55] <fsphil> your interrupt isn't sending entire strings though Lunar_Lander, just putting a byte into a buffer
[19:56] <daveake> hmm looks familiar :p
[19:56] <Lunar_Lander> so I suppose that UART connection method only involves the TX pin on the CPU side?
[19:56] <daveake> That looks like an actual toy; I made mine from foam :)
[19:56] <fsphil> nice shots
[19:56] <rharrison_> It was some toy from the golden arches I think

[19:57] <fsphil> Lunar_Lander: once the uart is setup, you only need to write bytes to the uart register
[19:57] LeoBodnar (5c116e74@gateway/web/freenode/ip. joined #highaltitude.
[19:58] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[19:58] <fsphil> the avr has an interrupt that triggers each time a byte has finished sending
[19:58] <Lunar_Lander> I meant the physical setup
[19:58] <fsphil> in the interrupt, you just feed another
[19:58] <daveake> Lunar_Lander With normal timer-driven rtty the interrupt happens every bit; for you it would be every byte
[19:58] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[19:58] <fsphil> yea the tx line is exactly the same as gpio line you'd drive an ntx2 from
[19:59] <iain_g4sgx> I'm experimenting with putting the pic to sleep between transitions when sending rtty and waking every new bit transition. Seems crazy the pic waiting for 167,000 odd clock cycles before running a couple of hundred before waiting again.
[19:59] <chrisstubbs> My tracker seems to have buggered itself of its own accord. loaded on some new code and it started just decoding to f's and 0's. reverted to an old backup and it still does it
[19:59] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[19:59] <chrisstubbs> does this sound like 50 baud? chris-stubbs.co.uk/hab/cheapo5_1.wav
[19:59] <Lunar_Lander> and yes, in my current code (or Anthony's) the staging is string, byte, bit

[20:03] <Lunar_Lander> yeah, that is what I understood, thus I wrote the software side thing
[20:03] <Lunar_Lander> the good thing is, that with atmega644, atmega1284 also fits into the socket

[20:03] <fsphil> atmega644 is probably overkill
[20:03] <Lunar_Lander> which would give double the memory if needed

[20:14] <fsphil> if you're transmitting it using an amateur license then the person repeating it would get in trouble

[20:14] <fsphil> relaying it using an ntx2 is perfectly fine
[20:14] <Willdude123> But there are gonna be flights.

[20:23] <LeoBodnar> Probably, it's coming out of habhub's ears already
[20:23] <arko> errhabitat
[20:23] <Willdude123> So is the IRC repeater a viable idea?
[20:24] <LeoBodnar> http://habitat.habhub.org/ept/
[20:24] <Willdude123> I guess there's no way of confirming identities.
[20:24] <LeoBodnar> arko ^^
[20:24] <arko> yarrrr
[20:24] <mfa298> Willdude123: that's likely to depend on what mode/power/band you want to do it over radio.
[20:25] <arko> LeoBodnar: is the next one going to have pressure sensors again?
[20:25] <chrisstubbs> Willdude123, I did made an IRC --> sms gateway bot thing but it borke becuase VB.net happened
[20:25] <Willdude123> Well, it'd have to be 70cm I think, license free.
[20:25] <Willdude123> Which would mean 10mw
[20:25] <LeoBodnar> Haha check http://habitat.habhub.org/stats/ and click "Flights Pie"
[20:26] <Willdude123> And RTTY because, well duh.
[20:26] <Lunar_Lander> XD highscore!
[20:26] <chrisstubbs> LeoBodnar, should have used 600baud!
[20:26] <mfa298> Willdude123: next challenge would be to work out what baud rate you want.
[20:26] <arko> hahaha
[20:26] <mfa298> s/want/need
[20:26] <LeoBodnar> It would be considered DDOS chrisstubbs
[20:26] <LeoBodnar> XD
[20:26] <chrisstubbs> lmao
[20:27] <arko> wow
[20:27] <Jess--> I did think about setting up an sms <-> Irc gateway so that messages could be passed to / from chase teams without internet access
[20:27] <arko> the B series alone is like 25%
[20:27] <mfa298> Willdude123: you'de also need to consider how to get data into this repeter (assuming you want it on a balloon)
[20:27] <chrisstubbs> Jess--, One day I will revisit the code and make it work
[20:27] <chrisstubbs> let people use it if they want
[20:27] <Willdude123> mfa298: I don't actually, but that;s a good idea.
[20:28] <LeoBodnar> I don't know, arko they were an afterthought and a pain to manually solder. I also had to use GPS I2C bus which was questionably decision as short -circuited sensor bus would mean no GPS
[20:28] <Jess--> it would have to be using preset mobile numbers rather than making them public on here
[20:28] <chrisstubbs> when you mentioned my nick it would just send the message as text to me, then you could text back with commands. It was a old nokia linked up over bluetooth and I think it was the bluetooth that killed it
[20:28] <Willdude123> Hmm.
[20:28] <chrisstubbs> Jess--, you could assign numbers by PM iirc
[20:28] <mfa298> with something like irssi it shouldn't be hard to make it send sms messages (as long as you have a way to send sms from the pc)
[20:28] <Jess--> I was thinking of using an sms gateway online (like textmagic)
[20:29] <chrisstubbs> would probably be better :P
[20:29] <Willdude123> I guess this probably isn't possible.
[20:29] <chrisstubbs> dont use email --> SMS as my mate mailbombed me and they charge per message...
[20:29] <arko> LeoBodnar: gotcha
[20:30] <arko> did you consider coating it?
[20:30] <LeoBodnar> in conformal coating ?
[20:30] <mfa298> old mobile and a suitable PAYG sim could probably work as a decent sms gateway
[20:30] <arko> ya
[20:31] <Jess--> this is what I was thinking chrisstubbs, pre-registered mobile numbers (using recognised trigger strings) and only accepted from preset users (top of head daveake, upu etc accepted for sending messages)
[20:31] <gonzo__> some of the older gsm and gprs modems will do sms, from AT commands over rs232
[20:31] <arko> silicone, epoxy, urethane conformal coating
[20:31] <LeoBodnar> Haven't done it yet, I have a few various types of this stuff bought for another project.
[20:31] <jcoxon> looks like we are on our way down
[20:31] <gonzo__> seimens M30 amd mc35
[20:32] <LeoBodnar> Silicon and urethane
[20:32] <gonzo__> should be uber cheap these days
[20:32] <chrisstubbs> Sounds like a nice idea. vb.net probably wasnt the best language to write it in though haha. Yeah it worked by sending AT commands over bluetooth to an old nokia
[20:32] <LeoBodnar> Yes, looks like it!
[20:32] <Gadget-Mac> Evening all, anything new tonight ?

[20:32] <Willdude123> IRC over RTTY is cool, but damn near impossible.
[20:32] <arko> LeoBodnar: coool
[20:32] <daveake> Yeah I made an SMS gateway thing - payload sent a $$.... sentence to it, and it bounced that on to habitat
[20:33] <Willdude123> I was thinking providing it as a service kinda thing, like letting people on there en masse.
[20:33] <chrisstubbs> I wonder if this whole thing could be made as an android app and just left running on an old phone
[20:33] <arko> LeoBodnar: interesting fact about it, you can actually break solder joints if the epoxy expands faster than the metal legs
[20:33] <arko> or fracture
[20:33] <Willdude123> However, it would be impractical, as there is no way you could hear it if it wasn't on a hab.

[20:34] <arko> usually recommended to check the thermal expansion coeff
[20:34] <arko> temp cycling
[20:34] <arko> especially for really high altitude habs
[20:34] <chrisstubbs> Willdude123, lack of internet/3g signal is very fustrating. But it would be useful to be able to get the maps too. rtty may not be the best way for that :P
[20:34] <Gadget-Mac> Willdude123: whats all this SMS stuff ?
[20:34] <arko> its not really a huge concern

[20:36] <LeoBodnar> Yes

[20:41] <arko> you can use coating remover, but it gets ugly

[20:50] <arko> battery
[20:50] <arko> because from what i see you got about another 18-20hrs
[20:50] <arko> but i'm very likely wrong
[20:51] <PB0NER> High temp makes batterylive better
[20:51] <LeoBodnar> It just doesn't want to dive up. Should have moved from 1.4v to 1.35v or so by now
[20:51] <LeoBodnar> Could well be 10-20 hours more

[20:51] <arko> yeah
[20:51] <jcoxon> when it goes it'll go quick
[20:52] <arko> once you dip to 1.35ish ish, its a steep drop
[20:52] <PB0NER> battery will die in the blink of an eye
[20:52] <LeoBodnar> 1.1v usually means 30 min left
[20:52] <LeoBodnar> On AAA I use
[20:52] <PB0NER> +e
[20:52] <jcoxon> if you've got a battery going through a diode the voltage is dropped a small amount
[20:53] <LeoBodnar> I use step-up
[20:53] <jcoxon> but if we then fed this into a step up regulator would it therefore draw more current? and run the battery quicker
[20:53] <LeoBodnar> It's automatigical
[20:53] <LeoBodnar> Dies at Vbatt=0.8V
[20:54] <jcoxon> so when you did the diode network for B-5
[20:54] <LeoBodnar> You have power loss on diode which can be calculated but instead diode should be taken out.
[20:54] <jcoxon> did you run a diode from teh solar cell into the stepup
[20:55] <arko> wait this has solar?
[20:55] <PB0NER> though not
[20:55] <LeoBodnar> I used diode for the solar panel only to inject voltage directly into Main Bus B :)
[20:55] <jcoxon> i see
[20:55] <arko> lol
[20:55] <jcoxon> how did you cope with more then 1.8v?
[20:55] <jcoxon> from teh solar cell
[20:55] <arko> thats been his secret
[20:55] <PB0NER> Oh, it does use solar
[20:55] <arko> never undervolt
[20:55] <LeoBodnar> jcoxon: after stepup
[20:55] <jcoxon> no this is B-5
[20:56] <LeoBodnar> yep B-5 was solar (until it fell off)
[20:56] <jcoxon> yeah i understand that the solar fed after the step up
[20:56] <PB0NER> so to be sure B-6 has no solar, right?
[20:56] Babs__ (~babs@ left irc: Ping timeout: 264 seconds

[20:57] <jcoxon> so if we used a bigger panel we'd need a 1.9V regulator
[20:57] <LeoBodnar> Yes, pretty much
[20:57] <jcoxon> so that it provided a slightly higher voltage
[20:58] <jcoxon> so would be used preferentially
[20:58] <LeoBodnar> You need MPPT controller for the panel really (if you have where to dump the excess energy like charging battery)

[20:59] <LeoBodnar> I meant "No, no solar" XD
[20:59] <PB0NER> ow wait I see
[21:00] <jcoxon> so one trick to extend flight time is to use the lithium during the night and solar during the day
[21:00] <jcoxon> so you'd use AAA+stepup->power bus
[21:00] <jcoxon> and then solar -> diode -> regulator (1.9v) -> power bus

[21:01] <LeoBodnar> Yes, or just shut down for the night altogether. It would be light like a feather then. Solar panel for my tracker is about 2g in weight
[21:01] <jcoxon> LeoBodnar, take it from me - finding a payload thats turned off for 12hours is a nightmare
[21:01] <SpeedEvil> shutting down for the night still needs a battery if you want to work in overclast conditions, or under tehe balloon
[21:02] <LeoBodnar> I think there are smart step-ups designed for two power sources so no power loss in diodes. They use MOSFETs to commutate power sources
[21:02] <jcoxon> LeoBodnar, the problem isn't really freq drift
[21:02] <jcoxon> its more that people stop listening
[21:02] <jcoxon> and that it moves off somewhere
[21:02] <jcoxon> out of range of reliable receivers

[21:31] <arko> if it floats for 8 days do we need to start a new religon?
[21:32] <Upu> are you turning the GPS off entirely via a FET ?
[21:32] <LeoBodnar> I closed all my Excel spreadheets, stopped running NOAA predictions and am just wasting my life here

[21:33] <LeoBodnar> I can't start with B-7 until B-6 is still alive. It's not right.

[21:34] <Upu> I don't get the power consumption
[21:34] <Upu> so ok question 2 how long is the off for ?
[21:34] <LeoBodnar> And hot restart then. But this is for Das Night Mode. Day mode is just periodic like everybody else
[21:35] <LeoBodnar> In night mode 4 minutes
[21:36] <LeoBodnar> I think it is uselsess as it takes so much more power after hot restart that it negates the energy saved while being off.

[21:57] <eroomde_> that kind of float time puts you in the right sort of ballpark for a realstic atlantic crossing
[21:57] <eroomde_> if the winds behave
