[08:20] <Jonathan_G4KLX> You need an SDR with a 1 MHz BW and some clever DSP software to isolate the different signals and then N decoders. Simples.
[08:22] G8KNN (~jon@cpc1-cmbg10-0-0-cust144.5-4.cable.virginmedia.com) joined #highaltitude.
[08:24] <mfa298_> Jonathan_G4KLX: sdr-radio works well like that for the software
[08:24] <mfa298_> you can have 6 seperate vfo's all outputing to a different sound device
[08:25] <Jonathan_G4KLX> It's not a hugely complex bit of software, just need to get away from using sound devices. Jack on Linux would be ideal.
[08:26] <mfa298_> there are bits of software for windows that provide virtual sound devices (e.g. Virtual Audio Cable)
[08:27] <mfa298_> there's another one as well that someone mentioned recently that I think is free
[08:28] <gonzo__mob> not followed yhe thread. but how about a set of cheap rtl dongles to collectivly cover spectrum
[08:28] <Jonathan_G4KLX> I know about VAC but it's a lot of complexity for a very simple task.
[08:29] <mikestir> i'm going to build the decoders into this websdr I'm writing

[08:35] <Jonathan_G4KLX> mikestir: sounds good, open source?
[08:35] <mikestir> yes it will be. I'm getting it functional before I release code, but it's pretty much ready
[08:35] <mikestir> at least for basic functionality
[08:36] <Jonathan_G4KLX> Excellent, what language?
[08:36] <mikestir> it can support N receivers per tuner (CPU limited), and multiple tuners, although only rtlsdr for now
[08:36] <mikestir> C++
[08:37] <Jonathan_G4KLX> That's brilliant. Maybe I can contribute to it once you release.
[08:38] <mikestir> sure. big bit of work to get it usable for hab will be to write the decoders

[08:46] <mikestir> yeah the server is pretty much done for basic functionality
[08:46] <mikestir> need to get some html and javascript written
[08:46] <mikestir> you can tune it now by sending json with curl though
[08:47] <Darkside> making your own websdr?
[08:47] <Darkside> and open source!
[08:47] <Darkside> awesome
[08:48] <mikestir> yes. I wanted a better solution for remote rx
[08:48] <Darkside> mikestir: whats the processing backend, as it's be nice to be able to pipe in gnuradio source blocks, instead of being limited to a sound card
[08:48] <Darkside> that way you can plug in a USRP, or a RTLSDR without doing any dodgy gnuradio to audio loopback hacks
[08:48] <mikestir> it's custom, but flowgraph based
[08:48] <mikestir> I thought about using gnuradio but I wanted something a bit simpler
[08:48] <mikestir> it's easy enough to write tuner drivers though
[08:49] <mikestir> USRP and FCD would be likely candidates
[08:49] <eroomde> i'm getting a ursp in the next couple of weeks
[08:49] <eroomde> i'm quite excited to play with it
[08:49] <Darkside> rtlsdr would e useful

[10:16] <g0hww> its seems make install doesn't work with latest dl-fldigi from git
[10:17] <g0hww> i just did a fresh clone to make sure it wasn't ancient cruft causing breakage
[10:17] <craag> I think they recommend to just run it from the build directory

[10:18] <Upu> who's uploading Markee ?

[10:28] <fsphil> ibanezmatt13: it's raining here. it's amazing
[10:28] <ibanezmatt13> really, not a cloud over here :)
[10:28] <g0hww> ah
[10:28] <ibanezmatt13> Only just figured out the wifi key for the router here :P
[10:29] <Martin_G4FUI> It's why the "Emerald Isle" is that particular colour, fsphil :)
[10:29] <ibanezmatt13> ping Upu
[10:30] <fsphil> Martin_G4FUI: to be honest it rains that much it should be called the Aqua Isle
[10:30] <fsphil> well, normally rains that much. this spell of sunshine was unusual
[10:31] <Martin_G4FUI> Normally the same can be said for the English Lake District, but it's been pretty dry here all year ...

[10:39] <g0hww> well, the other week there were some HABs using what i called the 'pointless' format
[10:39] <g0hww> that didn't seem to be supported by the old version
[10:39] <g0hww> so i decided to look for something newer
[10:40] <g0hww> anyway, i like bleeding on the edge
[10:40] <fsphil> the newer version has a few good fixes in it
[10:40] <fsphil> mainly not having the 8-bit ascii scrolling bug

[14:12] <cyclops> buenas _GMT_
[14:13] <_GMT_> cyclops: we have 4 balloons flying at the moment
[14:13] <Upu_M0UPU> well its burst
[14:13] <Upu_M0UPU> so signal will be a little ropey
[14:13] <cyclops> Following them trhought Spacenear.us :D

[14:13] <g0hww> oh, cheapo popped?
[14:13] <cyclops> I look everyday at the page
[14:14] <Upu_M0UPU> yep
[14:14] <m0tnr> Odd that MONTY doesn't think it's popped
[14:14] <m0tnr> I'd be inclined to not trust CHEAPO
[14:14] <Upu_M0UPU> monty is reporing burst
[14:15] <m0tnr> Oh, right, yeh
[14:15] <Upu_M0UPU> cheapo signal wobbling like hell
[14:15] <m0tnr> Derp.
[14:15] <Upu_M0UPU> see what happens @ 12km
[14:15] <_GMT_> 12km is the new twilight zone
[14:15] <Iain_G4SGX_Garde> cheapo definately burst, went all wierd now drifting other way
[14:15] <OZ1SKY_Brian> traces are back on 434.074
[14:16] <OZ1SKY_Brian> maybe it got above the tropo reflections
[14:16] <OZ1SKY_Brian> gone again
[14:17] <cyclops> monty going pretty fast descending
[14:18] <bertrik> as soon as MONTY is out of range, I'll switch to XABEN
[14:18] <db_g6gzh_> still in thin air cyclops
[14:18] Action: m0tnr swaps the radio to XABEN and wanders off for lunch.
[14:18] <db_g6gzh_> it'll slow down
[14:18] <cyclops> -20.2 m/s?
[14:18] <bertrik> cyclops: I think, just after burst, speed is often like -60m/s
[14:18] <cyclops> thats going down isnt it?
[14:19] <cyclops> I see
[14:19] <cyclops> its now going slowly
[14:19] <bertrik> -12m/s at 10km or so
[14:19] <cyclops> in about 2-3 weeks you'll se "Al-Andalus" in spacenear.us
[14:19] <db_g6gzh_> if you look at the altitude graph you'll see the descent is a curve
[14:20] <cyclops> Away from UK :P
[14:20] <Upu_M0UPU> CHEAPO signal as gone to pot
[14:20] <cyclops> I see db
[14:21] <cyclops> the optimal "crash" velicity is about 5m/s isnt it?
[14:21] <Herman-PB0AHX> here to cheapo is very low sound
[14:21] <cyclops> *speed
[14:21] <OZ1SKY_Brian> dial for uxaben?

[14:25] <Upu_M0UPU> Oh look Cheapo knows where it si
[14:25] <Upu_M0UPU> I call pedestrial mode
[14:25] <Upu_M0UPU> pedestrian
[14:25] <cyclops> the fd dlgi software automaticly uploads data to space near?
[14:26] <chrisstubbs> will have to investigate that
[14:26] <Upu_M0UPU> on the plus side the landing position will be accurate to within 2m
[14:26] <chrisstubbs> to set flightmode=0 in the telem it MUST have put it into flight mode and got the ACK
[14:26] <chrisstubbs> maybe gps reset?
[14:26] <Upu_M0UPU> no
[14:26] <Upu_M0UPU> bang on 12km
[14:26] <Upu_M0UPU> not in flight mode
[14:26] <chrisstubbs> strange
[14:27] <chrisstubbs> oh well back to life now, we are heading to landing location
[14:27] <Upu_M0UPU> debrief later
[14:27] <chrisstubbs> it might just beat us there though :/
[14:27] <Upu_M0UPU> go recover :)

[14:49] <cyclops> Guys
[14:49] <cyclops> Maybe silly qustion
[14:50] <G0TDJ_Steve> XABEN Very weak here. I'll leave it decoding - I have to pop out
[14:50] <cyclops> If i want to use APRS, there is the need to put a "License code" on the beggining
[14:50] <fsphil_MI0VIM> license code?
[14:50] <cyclops> Its possible that someone lends you their license code for that?
[14:50] <fsphil_MI0VIM> you mean callsign?
[14:50] <mattbrejza> hmm monty might be in the middle of that park
[14:50] <cyclops> Probably
[14:51] <fsphil_MI0VIM> yes, but it would be under the terms of their license. and it would be them repsonsible for it
[14:51] <bertrik> XABEN is still very weak here, while uXABEN is still OK, despite XABEN now higher than uXABEN

[15:46] <eroomde> you#'d be in good company
[15:46] <eroomde> arduino + gps + ntx2
[15:47] <Steve_2E0VET> i thought as much... is it pretty easy to do. I have seen a quick tutorial regarding RTTY on the UKHAB site, but not sure if I could combine both
[15:48] <eroomde> well, it's somewhat intentionally not-quite-enough-all-in-one-place
[15:48] <Steve_2E0VET> eroomde, I looked at that route then thought about buying a premade one using the TM2, a little more expensive ut I wouldnt have done it myself
[15:48] <eroomde> it's designed to be enough of a starting point that you can hopefully figure out how to combine them yourself.
[15:48] <eroomde> initially it will look like an alien language
[15:49] <eroomde> and you'll wonder what the hell, this-is-all-too-complicated
[15:49] <eroomde> but if you just take one bit (eg the ntx2 interface code) and work through it line-by-line trying to udnerstand it (with refernce to here and google) you'll quickly start to pick up how to program and structure things
[15:49] <Steve_2E0VET> i've tried java,php & C## so it shouldn't look too alien
[15:50] <eroomde> ah rightly
[15:50] <eroomde> head-start then

[16:09] <cyclops> Steve_2E0VET: If I had the time I wouldnt order Upus Habduino
[16:09] <mfa298> Steve_2E0VET: depending on what balloon you're using you might find someone that would lend you a backup tracker - or someone that has a tracker they've built they want to fly as well.
[16:09] <Steve_2E0VET> are there many people monitoring round south/mid wales., not sure where to launch first wales or west yorkshire
[16:09] <cyclops> Muy my launch is due in August so I cant risk
[16:10] <Willdude123> Hi
[16:10] <mfa298> Steve_2E0VET: there have been a few flights landing around the brecon beacons which have been tracked by a few people a reasonable way down.
[16:10] <Steve_2E0VET> i know its risky/fool hardy but would like to launch n 2 weeks (CAA approval and all that)
[16:11] <cyclops> Same timing Steve_2E0VET
[16:11] <Steve_2E0VET> i need to speak to CAA tomorrow because on the form it says "full postal Address of site", but all i know is its a large field lol
[16:12] <Steve_2E0VET> cyclops, but i havent even bought anything yet
[16:12] <jcoxon> Steve_2E0VET, my first piece of advice is patience! don't rush
[16:12] <cyclops> ANYTHING?
[16:13] <Steve_2E0VET> cyclops, oh i have an srduino and Rpi
[16:13] <Steve_2E0VET> arduino
[16:13] <cyclops> I have the cameras, micro sd cards, and batts on its way home
[16:13] <Steve_2E0VET> i cannot see it happening if i'm honest
[16:14] <cyclops> Antennas, backup SDR arrive next week
[16:14] <G0TDJ_Steve> Why that dealine Steve_2E0VET ?
[16:14] <Steve_2E0VET> ive got a pi camera and tons of SD cards lol
[16:14] <cyclops> And at home allready the arduino and the FUncube Dongle
[16:14] <Steve_2E0VET> G0TDJ_Steve, I'm eager
[16:14] <cyclops> Only balloon and helium left to order
[16:14] <cyclops> oh, and parachute
[16:15] <G0TDJ_Steve> LOL Steve_2E0VET I go with jcoxon You'd be better off not rushing and putting yourself together a tracker that you really understand.
[16:15] <Steve_2E0VET> cyclops, oh yes the Funcude!!! I am still deebating wether to get the FCD or a cheapo SDR
[16:15] <cyclops> I went with both
[16:15] <Steve_2E0VET> i dont suppose chucking it all in a morrisions bag wis advisable is it
[16:15] <cyclops> Ill go with 2 laps and 2 antennas
[16:16] <cyclops> Just in case one fails
[16:16] <G0TDJ_Steve> Noooot really, no
[16:16] <Steve_2E0VET> cyclops, thats taking DR a little too far lol
[16:16] <cyclops> DR?
[16:16] <Steve_2E0VET> cyclops, disaster recovery
[16:16] <jcoxon> i assume XABEN is going for float
[16:16] <cyclops> Oh
[16:17] <cyclops> Well the antenna and BAckup SDR are only ~25¬
[16:17] <Steve_2E0VET> cyclops, have you used the FCD much
[16:17] <cyclops> It arrived 3 days ago
[16:17] <cyclops> And althought i dont have antenna
[16:17] <cyclops> It received some local radio stations
[16:17] <cyclops> with noise but you could hear
[16:17] <Steve_2E0VET> yeah i saw you say that yesterday
[16:18] <cyclops> Ill test it further when antennas are delivered
[16:18] <cyclops> and extensivelsy when Upu delivers the Tracker
[16:18] <Steve_2E0VET> how long did the FCD take to arrive
[16:18] <Martin_G4FUI> The FCDPP is _much_ better than a cheap SDR at most things, in my experience
[16:19] <cyclops> It was really fast
[16:19] <JFS1> Dial for XABEN?
[16:19] <cyclops> I live in spain
[16:19] <cyclops> South spain
[16:19] <Steve_2E0VET> Martin_G4FUI, is that "much better" or "much much better"
[16:19] <G0TDJ_Steve> JFS1: 434.651.43
[16:19] <cyclops> Ordered it the 17th, and at 8AM on the 18th was dispatched
[16:19] <JFS1> Thanks.
[16:19] <Steve_2E0VET> cyclops, which gps are you using?
[16:19] <cyclops> It arrived home the same day at about 6pm
[16:19] <Martin_G4FUI> They are in a different league, like England vs Australia :)
[16:20] <cyclops> I think Upu uses the UBLOX max 7 on the HAbduino
[16:20] <Upu_M0UPU> there is no comparison between a FCD and a SDR
[16:20] <Upu_M0UPU> one is a toy
[16:20] <Upu_M0UPU> that sort of works
[16:20] <cyclops> Yes Steve_2E0VET Ublox MAX7 GPS designed for high altitude use.
[16:20] <Upu_M0UPU> one is USB powered awesome
[16:20] <Upu_M0UPU> early models may have MAX6's on cyclops
[16:20] <Upu_M0UPU> simplly because I don't have any MAX7's left
[16:20] <BrainDamage> except both are SDR :P
[16:21] <Upu_M0UPU> DABTV Dongle
[16:21] <Martin_G4FUI> FCD has better front end/noise figure, better stability, better dynamic range
[16:21] <cyclops> AFAIK its proven to work isnt it upu?
[16:21] Action: BrainDamage </pedant>
[16:21] <Upu_M0UPU> MAX6 ?
[16:21] <cm13g09> some interesting GPS points today :P
[16:21] <cyclops> Yes, It is more widely tested than 7 isnt it?
[16:21] <Upu_M0UPU> yeah very proven only slight difference is you may get some more life out of the batteries with a 7
[16:21] <Upu_M0UPU> but nothing thats going to cause any issues
[16:21] <cyclops> Max high
[16:21] <Martin_G4FUI> But in terms of bang per buck they're probably quite close ...
[16:22] <Martin_G4FUI> One its 10dB better, the other is 10dB cheaper
[16:23] <cyclops> No problem Upu_M0UPU as long as it works :P
[16:23] <Steve_2E0VET> I really need to make my mind up about the TM2 or NTX2- its a difficult one
[16:23] <Upu_M0UPU> LMT2 Steve_2E0VET ?
[16:24] <Steve_2E0VET> Upu_M0UPU, yeah but then I wont have done it myself, you will have done it for me lol
[16:24] <Upu_M0UPU> use the NTX2 initially
[16:24] <Upu_M0UPU> its easier to work with, fits in protoboard easily whereas the LMT2 doesn't
[16:24] <db_g6gzh_> I got a RTLSDR just to play with and have actually be quite impressed for the money.

[18:06] <Lunar_Lander> hi arko
[18:06] <mfa298> Willdude123: if you wanted to keep on coding something but you're struggling with one bit work on something else for a bit. e.g. make your code reckognise the strings you want and ignore anything else.
[18:07] <Willdude123> mfa298: But then I'll never get my actual problem solved.
[18:08] <mfa298> Willdude123: the idea is that you can go back to the original problem later.
[18:08] <mfa298> sometimes you just need to work on something else for a bit
[18:08] <daveake> good advice ^
[18:08] <Willdude123> Upu_M0UPU: The GPS isn't accepting my commands, that's the issue.
[18:08] <Steve_2E0VET> Upu_M0UPU, does the Ardunio /maxt6 assembled come with antenna
[18:09] <daveake> Doesn't matter actually just ignore the sentences you don't need
[18:09] <daveake> However, sooner or later you *have* to send stuff to it to enter flight mode
[18:09] <Willdude123> daveake: What about if I want to use UBX proprietary method?
[18:09] <daveake> So you need to get that bit working
[18:09] <Willdude123> Yeah

[18:10] <mfa298> Willdude123: I'm not saying don't fix the issue, just work on something else for a bit that's useful and you can (hopefully) make some progress on.
[18:11] <Upu_M0UPU> yes Steve_2E0VET
[18:11] <SpeedEvil> Willdude123: Also - the brain is a wierd thing. You may find that not concentrating on something will let an answer percolate out.
[18:11] <mfa298> I've often found I've spent ages failing to fix an issue, work on something else for a bit and then inspiration hits on what else to look at for the original issue.
[18:11] <Willdude123> Hmm
[18:11] <Willdude123> I doubt it will.
[18:12] <mfa298> BE POSITIVE!
[18:12] <Willdude123> Well, a loopback does work
[18:12] <Willdude123> Okay!
[18:12] <Willdude123> Therefore the problem is not with the connection.
[18:12] <SpeedEvil> The brain cannot multitask in the foreground - at all. You can only timeslice.
[18:13] <SpeedEvil> If you move the task into the background, then some degree of multitasking can occur.
[18:13] <Lunar_Lander> so using a brain interrupt?
[18:13] <SpeedEvil> Recent 'your brain lies to you' amusing fact. Look at yourself in a mirror. Focus on one eye. Now, focus on the other eye. Your eyes move - but you don't feel them move, or see them move.

[18:51] <mfa298> Willdude123: it's still good practice to check your getting things you expect from the GPS so this is code you should write anyway.

[18:54] <mikestir> particularly checksum calculation
[18:55] <Willdude123> mikestir: Well, I got it off the wiki, so it must be correct.

[18:55] <Willdude123> Nope
[18:56] <db_g6gzh> Willdude123: what about levels, is your Arduino 5V and this 3V3?
[18:56] <Willdude123> Yeah
[18:56] <mfa298> it might be worth replacing the ublox with a connection to something else that does serial (ftdi to pc?) to see if what your sending shows up there.
[18:56] <db_g6gzh> so what's the GPS expecting level wise ?
[18:56] <Willdude123> 3v3
[18:56] <mikestir> so how did you deal with that?
[18:57] <Willdude123> Using the 3v3 serial on the board,
[18:58] <mfa298> Willdude123: which gps breakout do you have ?
[18:58] <Lunar_Lander> mfa298, I recently read that you should handle example code with great care, as, it was written there, you could get malware out of that
[18:58] iain_G4SGX_p (~yahalimu@212.183.140.13) left irc: Ping timeout: 260 seconds
[18:59] <Lunar_Lander> that should make people think
[18:59] <Gadget-Mac> Willdude123: You could of course post your code on something like pastebin, perhaps someone will spot something
[18:59] <mikestir> you certainly shouldn't use example code without understanding roughly what it is doing, for that reason
[18:59] <mfa298> Lunar_Lander: well there is the standard rule of don't believe half of what's on the internet. Just because it's on a wiki doesn't mean it works / is safe.
[19:00] <mikestir> especially applicable to pasting shell commands
[19:00] <Willdude123> mfa298: MAX-6 5v
[19:00] <mfa298> so it's a breakout for 5v being used with a 3v3 system. I think something should be obvious there....
[19:00] <Willdude123> It's gobbledegook
[19:01] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[19:01] <Willdude123> My code isn't even running and it's printing.
[19:01] <mfa298> Willdude123: think about it the other way. Why does UPU sell 5v and 3v3 breakouts if you could use one breakout for both systems ?
[19:01] <Willdude123> mfa298: I'm using 3v3 rx and tx, there are pins for them.
[19:02] <Willdude123> Well, I soldered pins to 3v3 rx and tx
[19:02] <Willdude123> Ahah
[19:02] <Willdude123> I could be using a serial port that's already in use by something else then
[19:02] <mfa298> and what power supply are you giving it ?
[19:03] <Willdude123> 5v

[19:03] <Willdude123> I may have discovered the error.
[19:03] <Willdude123> I will ask in #beagle
[19:03] <Iain_G4SGX> sorry. got disconnected and missed any response
[19:04] <mfa298> Willdude123: do you mean the BBB serial port is sending data (if you've got it connected to a PC)
[19:05] <mfa298> In which case that could be a problem.
[19:05] <Willdude123> Yes, even when my code isn't running.
[19:05] <Gadget-Mac> Willdude123: Which serial port are you using ?
[19:05] <Willdude123> UART2 (ttyo1)
[19:05] <mfa298> it could be worth using a serial port that isn't the first one (often the first serial device gets used for debug etc)
[19:05] <Willdude123> I best try with a different serial port.
[19:06] <Gadget-Mac> Willdude123: and which OS distro ?
[19:06] <mfa298> The other rule of programming it methodically prove every part works. (So prove that your serial data is going out the device with a known good way of testing - eg. ftdi cable)
[19:07] <Willdude123> Right
[19:07] <Willdude123> This is obviously being used for something else.

[19:17] <mfa298_> having shared pins is common on various devices. The question is are the shared with something you need.

[19:27] <mfa298_> well the plus side if it doesn't rain over night is I can leave the windows wide open and continue recieving XABEN
[19:28] <db_g6gzh> so, with XABEN staying up, I decided to have a go at setting up the RTLSDR and it's working quite well with the habamp using gqrx on linux
[19:28] <db_g6gzh> however
[19:28] <chrisstubbs> is xaben on .650 ? We tried to get it in the car but no luck :(
[19:29] <db_g6gzh> every now and then dl-fldigi stops properly decoding and I can fix it by turning off and on DSP processing in gqrx

[19:31] <Willdude223> Besides, I have a headache (caused by repetitively bashing my head.
[19:31] <db_g6gzh> pulseaudio monitor capture
[19:31] <db_g6gzh> it just did it again
[19:31] <mikestir> right. I switched to a wire because I discovered pulseaudio was slightly altering the sample rate on the loopback
[19:31] <db_g6gzh> works for a few minutes and then stops
[19:31] <mikestir> stuff would decode but only if you set to 45.5 baud
[19:32] <mikestir> although it was all the time, not intermittently
[19:32] <db_g6gzh> maybe theres some sort of phase shift which drifts in ?
[19:32] <mikestir> I noticed it when I was trying to debug the timing in audacity - the playback was very slightly lower in pitch
[19:33] <db_g6gzh> I don't see any frequency shift in dl-fldigi waterfall
[19:33] <mikestir> it doesn't sound like the same problem, but it might still be worth being suspicious of pulseaudio
[19:33] <db_g6gzh> quite possible
[19:34] <Martin_G4FUI> Is it possible to tweak the sample rate(s)?
[19:34] <mikestir> it's been working well for me this afternoon. dongle is in the loft streaming the rf samples to gqrx on another machine
[19:34] <db_g6gzh> I only installed it because the gqrx website suggested it
[19:34] <db_g6gzh> remote dongle is my long term plan too
[19:34] <chrisstubbs> cm13g09, would you like to come along if we did a foil launch wed/thursday?
[19:35] <chrisstubbs> or just track from home
[19:35] <mikestir> Martin_G4FUI: I played around with that a little bit and couldn't get any effect, so I just looped it back through my amplifier instead
[19:35] <mikestir> then it worked fine

[21:05] <fsphil> some amateur repeater inputs are in the ISM band
[21:05] <Willdude223> S_Mark: They are secondary users, I think.
[21:06] <mfa298_> some amateur repeaters have their inputs on the same frequencies sometimes used for HAB (.600 and .650)
[21:06] <fsphil> both ISM and amateur are secondary
[21:06] <fsphil> the MOD are the primary there
[21:06] <Upu_M0UPU> sorry yes
[21:06] <Upu_M0UPU> amateur users are secondary and have to accept interference from other users
[21:06] <Upu_M0UPU> this includes ISM
[21:06] <Upu_M0UPU> however
[21:06] <mfa298_> In general repeater users are more likely to cause issues to people receiving HABs although there's concern from some people that HAB's might impact repeaters
[21:07] <Upu_M0UPU> I've yet to see any proof a 10mW transmission can cause any noticeable interference to a repeater input
[21:07] <Willdude223> Upu_M0UPU: I wouldn't tell them to <omit word> off, as such.
[21:07] <S_Mark> ah right ok I see
[21:07] <fsphil> upu would :)
[21:07] <fsphil> storm in a teacup
[21:07] <S_Mark> Yeah he said I have a question and then just had a dig it seemed
[21:07] <fsphil> the chances of interfering is very low
[21:07] <S_Mark> But thats cool, just wanted to know what the perceived problem was
[21:08] <LeoBodnar> I have abandoned .600 because I have found that there are repeaters on it. But how come there are repeaters on .300? They are not even listed anywhere?
[21:08] <Martin_G4FUI> Repeaters are generally protected to a certain degree by CTCSS aren't they?
[21:08] <Willdude223> Upu_M0UPU: Does that mean he was ****shitting?
[21:08] <Upu_M0UPU> basically they will interferee with us
[21:08] <Upu_M0UPU> but not vice versa
[21:08] <S_Mark> ok
[21:08] <mfa298_> don't think reapeaters go down to .300 but there could be something else
[21:08] <fsphil> you censored the wrong word there Willdude223
[21:08] <Willdude223> Oops, and wrong nick
[21:08] <Jess--M0VBR> it seems that some amateurs assume that their secondary status is of higher importance to the secondary status of ISM users (us)

[21:09] <Willdude123> S_Mark: If you had his email, you could pwn him

[21:09] <Willdude123> He obviously was bullshit***
[21:09] <S_Mark> It's cool Willdude123, just getting the info and background thats all!
[21:09] <Upu_M0UPU> this issue originated due to there only being two frequencies availble for us to use
[21:09] <Upu_M0UPU> 434.075 and 434.650
[21:09] <S_Mark> ntx2
[21:09] <S_Mark> right ok
[21:09] <Upu_M0UPU> yes
[21:09] <fsphil> now you're just pushing your luck Willdude123 :)
[21:09] <Upu_M0UPU> we should prepare an official response to this tbh
[21:10] <Upu_M0UPU> as it comes up again and again
[21:10] <Upu_M0UPU> hence my profanity
[21:10] <fsphil> there's probably one on the wiki
[21:10] <mfa298_> the amateur bandplans are at http://rsgb.org/main/operating/band-plans/uk-band-plan/ - you want UHF for 434MHz
[21:10] <Upu_M0UPU> do as I say not as I do Willdude123
[21:11] <fsphil> if a payload landed near a repeater with the exact input frequency it's transmitting on ... then maybe it would cause problems
[21:11] <fsphil> but only for a short period
[21:11] <Willdude123> Upu_M0UPU: The main word when googling that quote is Hypocrisy
[21:11] <fsphil> during a flight there's no chance
[21:11] <Upu_M0UPU> the other thing is yes our payloads are generally transient
[21:11] <fsphil> 10mw and further than most people using the repeater
[21:12] <Willdude123> Could someone use an NTX2 to legally operate a repeater?
[21:12] <fsphil> this is a question I've yet to have anyone answer Willdude123 :)
[21:12] <fsphil> but yes transmitting on 434.650 with an NTX2 is perfectly fine
[21:12] <fsphil> you can do voice
[21:12] <fsphil> if the repeater repeats it ... who's in the wrong?
[21:12] <Willdude123> What's to stop someone from just rickrolling a repeater
[21:12] <Jess--M0VBR> I may have a word with the local repeater keeper and see what he makes of the risks, might even be able to get him to run some tests with 10mw from a payload deliberately txed on the input (its an opportunity because the local repeater is off the air while it moves site)
[21:13] <Jess--M0VBR> nothing Willdude123
[21:13] <mfa298_> considering that repeaters will need something more than just a carrier to open them up an NTX2 on it's own shouldn't open one up.
[21:13] <Upu_M0UPU> just drop a payload near it Jess--M0VBR
[21:13] <Upu_M0UPU> see if you get any interference
[21:13] <Upu_M0UPU> at all
[21:13] <Upu_M0UPU> I doubt it
[21:13] <Jess--M0VBR> except amateurs can be quite good at direction finding and triangulation
[21:13] <mfa298_> The carrier might keep a repeater open if someone else has opened it up but that seems unlikely
[21:13] <Willdude123> We need an ntx2 repeater rickrolling competition,
[21:14] <fsphil> you can't do music Willdude123
[21:14] <Willdude123> Music, voice.
[21:14] <Willdude123> Same thing.
[21:14] <Jess--M0VBR> not the same
[21:14] <fsphil> the ISM rules don't allow music on 434mhz
[21:14] <mfa298_> talking to Andy G$MYS when he's around might be usful as he's a repeater keeper (and I think shares the main view that a payload is unlikely to cause many issues)
[21:14] <Willdude123> Well, an acapella version of it.
[21:15] <Willdude123> And we drop the finely tuned payloads right next to repeaters.
[21:15] <Jess--M0VBR> as amateurs you are also not allowed to broadcast, any transmission must be intended for reception by a group or individual
[21:15] <Willdude123> Except we aren't txing as an amateur
[21:15] <Willdude123> We'd be doing it as a license free user.
[21:16] <Jess--M0VBR> so ISM regs then.... which one does your plan fall under? Industrial, Scientific or Medical
[21:16] <Willdude123> Rickrolling
[21:16] <Willdude123> for scientific purposes.
[21:16] <mfa298_> Willdude123: don't forget there's a form of radio sport that all about finding a fairly low power transmitter than doesn't transmit very often. Finding something that's transmitting all the time will be very easy

[21:18] <Jess--M0VBR> think the wording is that we must not cause interference but must accept interference from other users even if that interference causes undesired operation
[21:20] <Jess--M0VBR> at the end of it all there is a (very) small risk that a payload could interfere with the input to a repeater, even if it did as long as the source of the interference was removed (recovered payload) as soon as possible there cannot be any serious objections

[21:24] <Jess--M0VBR> Jamming of repeater inputs can be a contentious issue, mainly because it is something that is done on purpose by some users (licensed or not), there was a case a couple of years ago where a repeater was being jammed every couple of minutes but not on a predictable pattern
[21:25] <Iain_G4SGX> other software is ok via gpsd but Fldigi cant open it for some reason
[21:25] <Jess--M0VBR> turned out someone had hacked a transmitter into the green man light on a pedestrian crossing
[21:25] <fsphil> yea intentionally jamming a repeater is just a stupid thing to do
[21:25] <fsphil> who goes to that effort
[21:25] <Iain_G4SGX> Moorons everywhere im afraid
[21:26] <Jess--M0VBR> it took locals 5 months to track it down due to the erratic nature of the transmissions
[21:26] <db_g6gzh> I happened to mention at a recent lunchtime meet with some radio amateurs that I'd been tracking HABs and the first comment was about desensing the Corby repeater so I guess it is an issue.
[21:27] <Iain_G4SGX> Unfortunately even if it isnt an issue someone will make it one eventually
[21:27] <db_g6gzh> I was surprised, given the power differential.
[21:28] <LeoBodnar> Corby is 434.6500?
[21:28] <Jess--M0VBR> I dont think desense would be an issue unless the payload was very close
[21:28] <db_g6gzh> yes http://www.ukrepeater.net/my_repeater.php?id=48
[21:28] <nigelvh> Things like that I like to see evidence of. There are a number of very smart, analytical HAMs out there, but there are a number who just make up off the cuff conclusions and then it's been decided.
[21:28] <Jess--M0VBR> main issue could be that it opens the repeater or keeps it open after another user has opened it
[21:28] <db_g6gzh> it would need CTCSS to do that
[21:29] <db_g6gzh> but it could potentially reduce the effective access range of a user
[21:29] <Jonathan_G4KLX> More likely to block a repeater receiver making it inaccessible.
[21:29] <Jess--M0VBR> opening the repeater should be very difficult, as it would need to be an FM signal with either a 1750hz tone (tone burst) or a sub 100hz tone (ctcss) modulated onto the signal
[21:30] <db_g6gzh> I'd assumed it wasn't an issue but I trust the people who said it had caused issues.
[21:30] <Jess--M0VBR> the 1750 tone should be dissapearing as a risk due to tone burst being phased out
[21:30] <LeoBodnar> For some time I have been advocating creation of the list of frequencies/zones that are known to create problems. As well as frequencies often used by a specific group/person.
[21:30] <Jonathan_G4KLX> Many repeater have carrier re-access so once opened, would stay open. CTCSS isn't mandatory.
[21:30] <Jess--M0VBR> that's why I sad it could keep a repeater open
[21:31] <Jess--M0VBR> but opening it should be difficult
[21:31] <LeoBodnar> Those who can chose freq freely have no guide to stick to.
[21:31] <Jonathan_G4KLX> If you stay below 434.600 MHz (RB0 input) you'll be fine.
[21:31] <db_g6gzh> LeoBodnar: repeaters start at 434.600
[21:32] <LeoBodnar> THis is why I was surpried that 434.300 caused the problem with some unknown repeater
[21:32] <Jonathan_G4KLX> It shouldn't do, unless some repeater has an unofficial receiver input.
[21:32] <LazyLeopard> The overlap between licence-exempt operation and standard repeater inputs starts aat 434.600. </pedant>
[21:32] <LeoBodnar> But if it does I would just chose 434.270 next time
[21:32] <db_g6gzh> no repeaters there

[21:36] <Jess--M0VBR> but if you are causing issues to an australian repeater from the uk you are doing very well
[21:37] <craag> ping Upu_M0UPU
[21:37] <db_g6gzh> anyway, this is more interesting than repeaters 8-) (says en ex repeater group committee member)
[21:37] Action: mfa298_ suspects habs are making as much use of .650 as repeaters are.

[21:38] <Upu_M0UPU> hey craag
[21:38] <LeoBodnar> [12:47] <steve-g7vrk> i have lot of noise on 300 local 70cm repeter in put
[21:38] <LazyLeopard> There are no UK repeaters listed as using 434.3 so I suspect we need more information about what the problem actually was.
[21:38] <craag> Hey Upu, you wanted to chat this weekend?
[21:38] <Upu_M0UPU> ah yes running out of weekend :)
[21:38] <Upu_M0UPU> pm
[21:38] <Iain_G4SGX> That was local QRM i ti
[21:38] <Iain_G4SGX> hink
[21:38] <Iain_G4SGX> hes local to me and i heard nothing
[21:39] <db_g6gzh> there's no real reason why people shouldn't be chatting on 434.3
[21:40] <LazyLeopard> We've certainly had trouble with repeater traffic making tracking difficult for some folks, but yes, standard simplex QSO seems as likely as anything.
[21:40] <db_g6gzh> it might have just been the repeater output overloading his receiver and appearing to be on 434.3 if it was close
[21:40] <db_g6gzh> I get some spurious from a repeater 10s of km away using RTLSDR
[21:41] <LazyLeopard> ...and what have 70cms band conditions been like today? We're in the summer "interesting propagation happens sometimes" season.
[21:41] <db_g6gzh> its output is 433.2 but I was hearing it on 434.7 weakly
[21:42] <LazyLeopard> Ah. Not so good.
[21:42] <Jess--M0VBR> I was seeing images of the local payloads today, but it was mirror of the local oscillator on the fcd pro+
[21:43] <Jess--M0VBR> checking with the 897 revealed a blank freq
[21:43] RocketBoy (~steverand@05438ed9.skybroadband.com) joined #highaltitude.
[21:43] <mikestir> I get interference on 434.3 from GB3CR on 433.150
[21:43] <mikestir> on the sdr
[21:43] RocketBoy (~steverand@05438ed9.skybroadband.com) left irc: Quit: RocketBoy
[21:44] <Jess--M0VBR> so it was just a case of the payloads swamping my mixer causing crossover between i / q
[21:44] <db_g6gzh> these things happen when the front end is wide
[21:44] <mikestir> yep, and it's on a very similar compass bearing when the flights are in the south, which doesn't help
[21:44] <mikestir> it's a massive signal
[21:45] <Jess--M0VBR> but the front end on a repeater should be extremely narrow (to prevent it's own transmission from desensing itself)
[21:46] <Steve_2E0VET> do any ballons ever get launch up Norf, or are they always down cambridge way?
[21:46] <mattbrejza> what sort of difference was between the two imges Jess--M0VBR ?
[21:46] <mattbrejza> *images
[21:46] <Jess--M0VBR> total mirror and about 60db down on strength
[21:47] <Jess--M0VBR> on my rx I expected it because I was running everything on max, pre-amp on, high mixer gain and 40db of if gain
[21:47] rob__ (~rob@85-156-134-75.elisa-mobile.fi) left irc: Remote host closed the connection
[21:48] <Jess--M0VBR> main reason I had everything maxed was I was trying to track the payloads down as far as possible
[21:48] <mattbrejza> well 60dB between signal and image is actually pretty good
[21:48] <db_g6gzh> The builder of the Corby repeater will more than likely be at a party I'm going to in September, so I will ask then if there is a real issue if I don't see him before.
[21:48] Action: Jess--M0VBR off to bed, catch you all tomorrow

[22:03] <cm13g09> well... if there's any 2m payloads... I'm ready to recieve....
[22:03] <cm13g09> 70cm could be a bit more fun
[22:04] <LeoBodnar> Sorry, got mixed up!
[22:05] <_GMT_> LeoBodnar: any plans for B-x?
[22:05] <craag> LeoBodnar: I believe it was based off CRAAG1, my first pico payload, yeah.
[22:05] <craag> But it was chrisstubbs.
[22:05] <LeoBodnar> I have one sitting in the office inflated but the prediction is horrible
[22:06] <craag> (Mine was based off one of Dave's)

[22:16] <craag> LeoBodnar: Yes, both of mine have come down with no balloon attached.
[22:16] <craag> Did some calcs today, should be able to test my tracker with a natural-gas filled 100g hwoyee.
[22:17] <LeoBodnar> Ooh! Has anybody tried natural gas?
[22:17] <fsphil> it's frequently suggested by SpeedEvil :)
[22:17] <SpeedEvil> It's about £1.20/kg of lift.
[22:18] <craag> More than that if you use portable tanks though
[22:18] Arbition (Arbition@unaffiliated/arbition) joined #highaltitude.
[22:18] <SpeedEvil> True
[22:18] <craag> Free lift is awful, but can get ~30g up to at least 10km for about 4 pounds gas cost.
[22:19] <SpeedEvil> Free lift is only half that of helium
[22:19] <SpeedEvil> ish
[22:19] <craag> with a 5 pound balloon, all very cheap!
[22:19] <SpeedEvil> That seems _way_ out.
[22:19] <SpeedEvil> Oh - for portable
[22:20] <craag> Yeah, I'd go with portable, means i can fill wherever I want.
[22:20] <SpeedEvil> Though of course, you can fill some sort of flexible container at home :)

[22:21] <craag> There's enough safety considerations already :/
[22:21] <craag> Measuring 10s of grams of free lift on a latex in an 'open, well ventilated area' isn't going to be easy.
