[08:21] <chrisstubbs> Nice :)
[08:21] <Lunar_LanderU> thanks
[08:21] <Lunar_LanderU> $34.10 for three at OSH Park
[08:21] <chrisstubbs> will probably be less than that for 10 at hackvana
[08:22] <chrisstubbs> if you plan to self etch them I would suggest bumping the pad sizes and track sizes up (never changed pad sizes in eagle before though(
[08:22] <Lunar_LanderU> yea
[08:22] <chrisstubbs> I sometimes just to touchups like that with a marker pen on bits that look like they might break through when etching
[08:23] <chrisstubbs> Would be cool to get the boards made though
[08:23] <fsphil> who self etches these days?
[08:23] <Lunar_LanderU> yea
[08:24] <UpuWork> 50mmx 50mm ~ $18 for 10 via Mitch
[08:24] <x-f> hi, Lunar_LanderU, thanks :)
[08:24] <x-f> filling now

[08:42] <Lunar_LanderU> one sec
[08:42] <Lunar_LanderU> it will register any ionizing radiation with high enough energy

[08:45] <Lunar_LanderU> yeah
[08:45] <SpeedEvil> Lunar_LanderU: though making a trap for all light would be fun
[08:45] <Lunar_LanderU> you'd need to have a small cell though

[09:02] <G0TDJ_Steve> I think I may order locally next time. The saving isn't worth the wait
[09:02] <G0TDJ_Steve> I think I@m on that sort of time now...
[09:03] <ES5EC> LAASE launch site locator seems to be about KO27kd

[09:19] <ES5EC> ?
[09:19] <mfa298> that sounds line you started the non HAB version
[09:20] <ES5EC> I have the one where I can set up habitat etcx
[09:20] <ES5EC> let me check download site once again
[09:20] <mfa298> when you installed dl-fldigi it normally installs two links in the start menu (and/or desktop) one gives the normal fldigi display the other runs it with the HAB extensions
[09:21] <mfa298> you want to start the one marked "DL-FLDIGI (HAB Mode)"
[09:21] <ES5EC> mmm.. ok
[09:21] <ES5EC> hehe
[09:21] <ES5EC> thanks a lot

[09:21] <G0TDJ_Steve> LASSE on the map
[09:22] <ES5EC> (Y)
[09:22] <mfa298> no problems, I think a few people have had that issue (I wonder if the documentation isn't clear enough)
[09:23] <G0TDJ_Steve> Sorry LAASE not LASSE
[09:25] <x-f> LAASE launched
[09:25] Action: SpeedEvil predicts that LAASE will land next to a well, with a small boy trapped.
[09:27] <x-f> that dascent rate oesnt look like the one we were aiming for..
[09:28] <G0TDJ_Steve> x-f: You mean ascent?
[09:28] <ES5EC> Seems, that all is OK with guide, I just did not know anything about hab mode (it's well said in guide: "Open up dl-fldigi in hab mode")
[09:28] <x-f> ascent, yes
[09:29] <G0TDJ_Steve> x-f: What's it's predicted max altitude?
[09:29] <x-f> 33 km
[09:29] <G0TDJ_Steve> Cool, I've got a chance of decoding (just)
[09:30] <x-f> from where, G0TDJ_Steve? :)

[09:32] <x-f> thanks, ES5EC :)
[09:32] <ES5EC> S/N 26+ dB
[09:33] <ES5EC> what is interesting
[09:33] <ES5EC> that frequency actually is not completely stable
[09:33] <ES5EC> it moves back and forth with sinusoid-like pattern
[09:34] <ES5EC> the shift is very small, though
[09:34] <x-f> yeah, it should be more stable, hmm
[09:34] <x-f> the balloon is still above us, we see it :)
[09:35] <ES5EC> that shift is about 20 Hz or so

[10:03] <mfa298> ^^ that link describes it
[10:03] <ES5EC> S/N is from time to time close to 40 dB
[10:03] <ES5EC> typically about 35 dB
[10:04] <ES5EC> I wonder if there is anyone receiving LAASE from Finland..
[10:05] <x-f> there should be one in Helsinki, that i tried to recruite from the ##rtlsdr channel
[10:06] <Joel_re> love how the prediction is exact
[10:07] <charolastra_> helsinki is not quite 300km away, what's the usual reception range for you guys?
[10:07] <mfa298> the prediction on the map will update based on what's happening on the flight. You might find the predicted landing spot will change as the balloon bursts
[10:07] <Joel_re> ok
[10:08] Nick change: Matt_soton -> mattbrejza

[10:10] <Joel_re> what are the two rings acound the balloon when you zoom out?
[10:10] <Joel_re> the green, blue ones
[10:11] <G0TDJ_Steve> The blue one is the zero degree horizon, the green is five degrees
[10:11] <mfa298> the blue circle indicates that for listeners on the blue circle that balloon would be on their horizon
[10:12] <mfa298> with the assumption that you are at 0m ASL and there are no hills or other obstacles
[10:12] <x-f> LAASE team is on the road now
[10:12] <chrisstubbs> charolastra_: it will vary a lot with baud rate, antenna setup on tx, antenna setup on rx

[10:22] <x-f> i' ve lost the count :)
[10:23] <gonzo_> worrying how susceptable the cat systems are. get some interference and there is no way to move the car.
[10:23] <HixWork> just keep an 808 in the glovebox ;p
[10:24] <gonzo_> The AA?RAC only method is to tow you half a mile away and try again

[10:31] <Ugi> It would make a pretty annoying April 1st prank on someone - tracker under the car.
[10:34] <HixWork> I've got some neighbours that continually have friends around who park anywhere they fancy. a couple of weeks ago a freind of theirs blocked someone in their drive for all of Sat eve and sunday day.
[10:35] <HixWork> they deserve a free tracker
[10:37] <mfa298> although in that situation you want it to only activate on a delay (after they've stopped blocking the driveway)
[10:39] <HixWork> nah, charge them £300 to "reprogramme" their central locking and key ;p
[10:40] <HixWork> I reckon just opening up SDR# with an RTLSDR would baffle the hell out of them :D

[12:01] <HixWork> So, I started a new gig yesterday. Today I have uncovered a document [I can't share it] but it pertains to "a sensor-less motion Detection, Control & Monitoring technology for brushed DC motors"
[12:01] <HixWork> this could be very interesting for HAB camera purposes
[12:04] <flamesnm> gents. Just taken delivery of a GPS module ( ublox max 6 module with antenna ) with a view to hooking it to a Pi.
[12:04] <flamesnm> For initial tooling around, I'm going to put it together with a breadboard. Just wondering what you do for the flight payload ?
[12:05] <flamesnm> Is soldering direct between the two the preferred option ?
[12:05] <daveake> Generally, get a protyping board for the Pi and solder it to that
[12:06] <flamesnm> Thanks daveake. Do you send the breadboard up with the payload ?
[12:06] <daveake> No never
[12:06] <daveake> Breadboard is good enough at falling apart on the bench, let alone when thrown around in a payload
[12:07] <HixWork> here's some info that is oout there already in the interwebs http://goo.gl/qiXyMN http://goo.gl/BJLdQi babs may be interested

[12:07] <mfa298> soldering skills can be improved
[12:08] <daveake> Breadboard can't
[12:08] <daveake> Well it can. Throw it into an inferno. That improves it no end.
[12:08] <mfa298> fixing a breadboard payload when its in the air is near impossible

[12:10] <mfa298> several people have had issues with their payload even on the bench when using breadboard. moving to some sort of stripboard/protoboard/veroboard has fixed all those issues.

[13:34] <mfa298> Joel_re: I believe it's possibly on something like an arduino but getting suitable hardware is harder. Pi is easier as you've got more memory to store data whilst you send it.
[13:35] <chrisstubbs> However just trying to use a pi for a traker is total overkill. For SSDV its justfied
[13:37] <WillTablet> But using it as a tracker is OK, even without ssdv, if you're testing it and plan to add ssdv.

[13:44] <mfa298> overall for a basic tracker an arduino will be lighter, and potentially easier to interface things to but if your happier using a Pi there's nothing wrong with it.
[13:45] <Joel_re> I have a msp430 launchpad board Im going to try to use
[13:45] <daveake> Well .... you can use whatever you like for a tracker but there are pros and cons, and really the decision should be based mainly on what is best for the task. There's little justification for using the Pi as a simple tracker - it's inherebntly heavier and has more failure modes than a simple Arduino tracker
[13:45] <Joel_re> if I completely fail at it, I'll try the arduino
[13:46] Reactive (c4d7907d@gateway/web/freenode/ip.196.215.144.125) joined #highaltitude.
[13:46] <daveake> That said, I've flown the Pi 7 times and it hasn't skipped a beat, but you might get a bit distressed if for example your tracker stopped tracking because the SD card came loose
[13:46] <Reactive> lol
[13:47] <Joel_re> heh
[13:47] <Reactive> critical point of failure there
[13:47] <Joel_re> solder all connections
[13:47] <WillTablet> Like I'm using the BBB
[13:47] <daveake> It is if your tracker program logs to SS card
[13:47] <daveake> If it doesn't you're ok :)
[13:47] <daveake> SD
[13:47] <WillTablet> And now all I have to do is write the parser and it will be working.
[13:47] <Reactive> yeah i've been stressing about that myself actually
[13:47] <daveake> But yes once you decide to SSDV then it all makes more sense
[13:48] <Reactive> i'll use a netduino, and i've encountered some weird IO issues with the sd card modules
[13:48] <daveake> Camera is a lot cheaper and a lot lot lot better quality than a serial camera for an Arduino
[13:48] <Joel_re> has anyone tried recieved 3G, it should be available upto 2km up there
[13:48] <Joel_re> ?
[13:48] <Reactive> daveake: you talking about a gopro or something?
[13:48] <mfa298> Also if you're a master Python programmer and have no idea about C you might decide that the chance of your C code on an arduino failing is a greater risk than using a Pi with python.
[13:48] <Reactive> i've heard reports of 10km before
[13:48] <daveake> And once you've made the jump, you can take HD pix or video for storage, and then you've got a GoPro for £40
[13:49] <Reactive> where the hell do you get a gopro for 40 pounds?
[13:49] <daveake> I added 3G to one Pi flight. Worked up to 300m
[13:49] <WillTablet> Ping Upu you know the pcb you gave ibanezmatt13 with the ntx2 and ubx? You couldn't give me the schematic for it could you?
[13:49] <Joel_re> oh, sad

[13:50] <Reactive> oh, really?
[13:50] <Reactive> sorry I jumped in the middle of half a conversation there :(
[13:50] <WillTablet> Is it possible to desolder a ubx from the breakout?
[13:50] <daveake> Full (1080p) HD video. 5MP stills. Plenty enough for HAB
[13:51] <Reactive> daveake: you helped me setup sdrradio for my funcube, right?
[13:51] <daveake> Nah not me
[13:51] <Reactive> you sure?
[13:51] <daveake> Also, for SSDV, you can do things like take several photos and choose which to download
[13:51] <daveake> Yes
[13:51] <daveake> I think
[13:51] <Reactive> what is SSDV?

[13:56] <WillTablet> Magmounts are popular, I think
[13:57] <Reactive> I bought a magmount last week, i'm hoping it'll perform well for my tracking
[13:57] <Reactive> WillTablet: are there alternatives?
[13:57] <gonzo_> drill a hole in the roof and bolt a mount
[13:58] <mfa298> Magmounts are good for chasing in a car.
[13:58] <WillTablet> Yes, but they are best for cars
[13:58] <mfa298> for chasing at home most people use some form of vertical antenna.
[13:58] <Reactive> 430 range?
[13:58] <WillTablet> Urgh
[13:58] <WillTablet> No ad clicks on my blog
[13:58] <daveake> chasing at home?
[13:58] <WillTablet> Almost no views.
[13:58] <daveake> Interesting occupation
[13:59] <mfa298> ok tracking at home.
[13:59] <daveake> :)
[13:59] <WillTablet> I think I need pictures on http://willdover.co.uk
[13:59] <gonzo_> drilling is best RF wise. If you have gutters you can use a gutter mount clamp. or a boot lid mount for hatchback/estate cars. Mag mount is the quickest to deploy
[13:59] <mfa298> unless you have a campervan in which case you could chase at home (although a magmount might be better then)
[13:59] <Reactive> is there a way to decode satellite telemetry with dl-fldigi ?
[13:59] <Reactive> and is decoding satellite telemetry a thing?
[14:00] <gonzo_> depends what sat you are taliing about
[14:00] <gonzo_> talking
[14:00] <Reactive> whatever I can find I guess?
[14:00] <Reactive> are there any floating around that transmit unencrypted data?
[14:00] <gonzo_> most of the sats are educational cube sats, there is the FunCube coming up soon too
[14:01] <gonzo_> all the ones using the AR bands MUST be unencrypted and open protocol

[14:03] <Reactive> oooh i came across that link earlier
[14:03] <Reactive> i download a program called MSSTV or something
[14:03] <Reactive> but I have _no_ idea how to use that
[14:03] <HixWork> Willdude123: why have you got adverts on the blog?
[14:04] <gonzo_> a vertical whip may get you some data. Ideally you woudl want a yagi antenna. Doed not need to be huge. And can be hand pointed to start with
[14:04] <gonzo_> msstv is a slow scan analogue program.
[14:04] <gonzo_> Mainly used on HF bands
[14:04] <Reactive> i have a diamond x200 2m/70cm
[14:05] <gonzo_> listen aroing 14.240 (I think?) and you may head some data with a sweeping ans scratching tone. That is your SSTV

[15:20] <Joel_re> SpeedEvil \0/
[15:21] <eroomde> bigger motors rewound for low revs are definitely nicer than servos
[15:21] <eroomde> in principle and practice
[15:22] <eroomde> servos, at least rc hobby servos, have lots of gear reduction, and every gear stage introduces backlash
[15:22] <eroomde> and other nasties
[15:23] <Babs__> Backlash being what?
[15:23] <Babs__> Morning eroomde
[15:23] <HixWork> the whole idea of encoding based on the noise from the commutators is excellent
[15:23] <HixWork> play in gears Babs__
[15:23] <HixWork> they never have perfect mesh, there is always a small amount of dwell as it were
[15:24] <SpeedEvil> eroomde: I've been wondering about just using brushless motors, as steppers.
[15:24] <SpeedEvil> eroomde: Large ones.
[15:25] <SpeedEvil> Clearly you'll need an appropriate microstepping drive.
[15:25] <SpeedEvil> But that's no longer as scary as it once was.
[15:25] <Babs__> So this backlash of what you speak is a) a delay in movement while the gears engage and b) ultimate limit on how incrementally you can position a servo?
[15:25] <SpeedEvil> It's not quite a limit on accuacy.
[15:25] WillTablet (~androirc@wikipedia/W-D) joined #highaltitude.
[15:25] <SpeedEvil> It's a limit on positional certainty under varying loads.
[15:26] <SpeedEvil> If you know your load is coming from one direction - you can - with the right drive - be fairly accurate
[15:26] <WillTablet> Hi

[15:44] <Babs__> HixWork: Nice.
[15:44] <Babs__> This backlash though. It's just an absolute degree of accuracy that the servo can operate too though right?
[15:45] <Babs__> And if i position the camera carefully so all of the pivots are around the centre of gravity
[15:45] <Babs__> So the load doesn't vary that much
[15:46] <Babs__> And then the servos actually installed have a far greater operating torque than necessary
[15:46] <Babs__> To shift the camera
[15:46] <Babs__> Then all we are talking about is a fixed tolerance in degrees of where the computer thinks it is positioning the camera
[15:47] <Babs__> Vs where it is actually positioned
[15:47] <Babs__> Ie the inaccuracy doesn't vary over time?

[15:55] <Babs__> If the servo command is just "move it to the right" or "move it to the left" based on the IMU position
[15:55] <Babs__> Rather than trying to go to a fixed degree
[15:56] <Babs__> Then (I think) as long as the servo command is updated frequently then it shouldn't really be an issue
[15:56] <HixWork> thats where it goes wrong, move to the right by a certain amount, but there is effectively play in the gearsets so you never really know how much movement actually was transmitted
[15:56] <HixWork> its probably too small to worry about for Stron{tm}
[15:56] <HixWork> adv
[15:56] <HixWork> abv rather
[15:56] <Babs__> Ahh, but if insufficient movement is transmitted, then the imu will still be pointing in the wrong direction
[15:57] <Babs__> And command the servo to move a little further around
[15:57] <Babs__> Until the IMU is aligned exactly with the direction we want it to be pointed in

[17:21] <ibanezmatt13> Good evening
[17:22] <ibanezmatt13> I'm just loading up some software for the AVRISP MKII
[17:23] <ibanezmatt13> I'm not too sure how to go about connecting the 6 pin ICSP cable to my chip as I've not got a 6 pin header to fit it to. I'll have to just use some pieces of normal wire
[17:24] <ibanezmatt13> So MISO, MOSI and SCK connect directly to the pins on the chip - VCC and GND connect normally - does the RESET connection have to go via a resistor to VCC or straight to the RESET pin on the chip?
[17:25] <G7PMO_Kev> ibanez - one way - http://ava.upuaut.net/wp-content/uploads/2012/09/pava-rev6.jpg
[17:26] <G7PMO_Kev> sorry got to run
[17:26] <ibanezmatt13> they look cool

[17:28] <ibanezmatt13> http://people.ece.cornell.edu/land/courses/ece4760/AtmelStuff/avrispmkii_ug.pdf I'm looking at page 26 and I'm really confused :/
[17:28] <Lunar_Lander> why?
[17:29] <Lunar_Lander> please explain
[17:29] <ibanezmatt13> Well, I need to hook it up to an ATTINY and I'm not sure how. After reading that, I'm doubtful about how I was going to connect it in the first place
[17:30] <ibanezmatt13> I guess SCK, MOSI and MISO go straight to the relevant pins on the chip?
[17:30] <ibanezmatt13> VCC and GND go straight to VCC and GND (do they not need any caps?)
[17:30] <ibanezmatt13> No idea what to do with RESET, it states that the pullup on RESET should be no more than 4.7k and I have 10k
[17:31] <Lunar_Lander> that should all be well OK
[17:32] <Lunar_Lander> on my board there is even no resistor on the RESET line, it's directly connected
[17:32] <ibanezmatt13> Ah ok, and I only need the caps on the chip?
[17:32] <ibanezmatt13> And nothing more for the programmer?
[17:33] <chrisstubbs> Lunar_Lander, you should have a pullup on reset
[17:33] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[17:33] <Lunar_Lander> that is what I have on the PIN board now :)
[17:34] <chrisstubbs> 10k should be fine ibanezmatt13
[17:34] <ibanezmatt13> cool, thanks
[17:34] <ibanezmatt13> Ok, so I need to somehow get an Arduino bootloader onto the ATTINY so I can upload my sketches
[17:34] <chrisstubbs> oh ibanezmatt13 i was going to say the other day but you quit.. you complained about the delivery on that olimex programmer
[17:34] <ibanezmatt13> yeah?
[17:34] <chrisstubbs> olimex have an ebay store and they are £19.99 with free postage
[17:35] <ibanezmatt13> ah right, that's good to know. I think the AVRISP MKII will be ok though. daveake has one :)
[17:35] <chrisstubbs> same kinda thing yeah
[17:36] <chrisstubbs> if you are really stuck you can set up a spare arduino board as an ISP programmer to burn a bootloader

[17:40] <Lunar_Lander> you just need to set the fuses, right?

[17:41] Elijah_ (~elijah@71-35-37-111.phnx.qwest.net) joined #highaltitude.
[17:41] <ibanezmatt13> I just need to set the fuses so that it uses the internal clock and has some sort of Arduino bootloader on it
[17:44] <chrisstubbs> ibanezmatt13, what attiny is it?
[17:44] <chrisstubbs> I have used the 13a before
[17:44] <ibanezmatt13> 85, I read it may not be supported by the programmer so I may just use the 328 as a test

[17:45] <ibanezmatt13> I'm sure it'll work though
[17:46] <ibanezmatt13> I'm not really sure what to do though. I'm not too sure where to find the bootloader and how to get it onto the chip (I'm pretty useless at getting these things to work)
[17:47] <chrisstubbs> ibanezmatt13, you might as well just upload the sketch to the chip over ISP without the bootloader
[17:47] <chrisstubbs> it will save memory
[17:47] <ibanezmatt13> but will it run it?
[17:47] <chrisstubbs> Yeah
[17:47] <ibanezmatt13> I thought that was the whole point of a bootloader?
[17:47] <chrisstubbs> the bootloader just waits to see if the arduino ide is trying to upload a sketch over serial on boot
[17:47] <ibanezmatt13> ah right
[17:47] <ibanezmatt13> seems a bit pointless then, I'll just do that.
[17:48] <chrisstubbs> :)
[17:48] <ibanezmatt13> I'll have a mess around with the software for this thing and see if I can figure it, it's AVR studio
[17:48] <chrisstubbs> You can use the arduino ide too
[17:49] Nick change: G0TDJ_AFK -> G0TDJ_Steve
[17:49] <ibanezmatt13> really?
[17:49] <G0TDJ_Steve> Evening guys
[17:49] <chrisstubbs> just have to create a new entry in boards.txt once you have figured out what the fuses are
[17:49] <ibanezmatt13> Yeah, I'll have an experiment now :)
[17:49] <ibanezmatt13> Thanks
[17:50] <chrisstubbs> fuses are a subject I cant really help on though unless its for a 8mhz 328p. Upu figured them out and whenever I tried i got a different set :P
[17:50] <chrisstubbs> its like black magic
[17:50] <ibanezmatt13> ah right, I'll just see what I can do
[17:51] <G0TDJ_Steve> Question: I notice a new balloon on Tracker GOG-HAB. It has an info item Fauna Status marked as Secure. Is that just a test or?....

[18:00] <mfa298> my understanding of the various bootloaders is that they allow you to upload code over serial/usb rather than having to use a dedicated programmer. But if you've got a programmer there's no realy need for the bootloader.
[18:00] <mfa298> As for fuses they should all be in the datasheet but it takes some reading. I think AVR studio knows about them for most chips too so you can just click some tick boxes
[18:03] <ibanezmatt13> chrisstubbs: avrdude: usbdev_open(): did not find any USB device "usb"
[18:04] <ibanezmatt13> That's using the Arduino ide

[18:04] <ibanezmatt13> I've set the correct programmer and I've set the board as Uno (I'm using the atmega328)
[18:04] <chrisstubbs> do you have the programmer yet?
[18:04] <LeoBodnar> No never used ATTinies ibanezmatt13
[18:04] <ibanezmatt13> ah ok LeoBodnar
[18:04] <ibanezmatt13> The programmer is all setup

[18:05] Nick change: G0TDJ_Steve -> G0TDJ_AFK
[18:05] <chrisstubbs> if you unplug the programmer does that dissapear?
[18:05] <ibanezmatt13> ill try
[18:06] <ibanezmatt13> same error
[18:06] <chrisstubbs> did com1 dissapera?
[18:06] <chrisstubbs> r
[18:06] <ibanezmatt13> oh, one sec
[18:06] <ibanezmatt13> no
[18:06] <chrisstubbs> ok I dont think they use com, just some kind of USB protocol
[18:06] <chrisstubbs> thats fine then
[18:07] <chrisstubbs> the programmer is hooked up to the chip
[18:07] <ibanezmatt13> yeah
[18:07] <ibanezmatt13> and it will definitely upload without any bootloader on the chip using arduino ide?
[18:07] <chrisstubbs> with a crystal and pullup resistor?
[18:07] <ibanezmatt13> yep
[18:07] <chrisstubbs> do you have atmelstudio?
[18:07] <daveake> ibanezmatt13 You have to hold shift when you click the program button, in order to use a programmer rather than ftdi
[18:07] <ibanezmatt13> yes
[18:07] <daveake> ^ in Arduino IDE
[18:08] <ibanezmatt13> i'll try that now daveake
[18:08] <daveake> If you're not using that then ignore me :)
[18:08] <chrisstubbs> Oh yes that will help ;)
[18:08] <ibanezmatt13> same error daveake
[18:08] <daveake> what error ?
[18:09] <ibanezmatt13> err, it's above somewhere, I'll find it for you
[18:09] <ibanezmatt13> avrdude: usbdev_open(): did not find any USB device "usb"
[18:09] <ibanezmatt13> I've installed the USB driver for the programmer

[18:10] <ibanezmatt13> MISO to MISO, MOSI to MOSI, SCK to SCK, VCC to VCC, GND to GND, RESET to Reset. All the caps and the pullup on reset are already in on the chip
[18:11] <ibanezmatt13> Hang on...
[18:11] <ibanezmatt13> Does the programmer power the chip or not?
[18:11] <mfa298> you need to supply power to the chip
[18:11] <ibanezmatt13> bingo
[18:11] <Lunar_Lander> no, it just senses if the chip is powered
[18:11] <Lunar_Lander> as mfa298 says
[18:11] <mfa298> the vcc connection is only for the programmer to see what voltage your using
[18:12] <ibanezmatt13> that's the issue then
[18:12] <ibanezmatt13> I'll hook up a PSU, one sec
[18:15] <ibanezmatt13> take 2...
[18:15] <ibanezmatt13> damn, same error :O

[18:27] <Steve_2E0VET> when decoding using dl-fldigi, I get quite a bit of junk before the packets start decoding, is that a problem
[18:27] <Lunar_Lander> actually I don't have AVR Studio
[18:27] <ibanezmatt13> chrisstubbs: no devices on there
[18:27] <chrisstubbs> Steve_2E0VET, how much junk, 2 chars?
[18:27] <Lunar_Lander> I got the driver from mightyohm and then got WinAVR with avrdude
[18:27] <chrisstubbs> ibanezmatt13, darn. Im out of ideas im afraid then dude
[18:27] <Lunar_Lander> and also can upload from the arduinoIDE
[18:27] <fsphil> Steve_2E0VET: are you switching off the signal between strings?
[18:28] <fsphil> switching off the ntx2 I mean
[18:28] <Steve_2E0VET> fsphil, yes
[18:28] <chrisstubbs> all I can suggest is googling for a tutorial
[18:28] <fsphil> okie that's why -- it takes fldigi a few bytes to resyncronise
[18:28] <Lunar_Lander> and the thing is that the Jumbo driver or so that comes with AVR Studio doesn't work with the IDE
[18:28] <ibanezmatt13> it's ok. I'll keep looking. thanks anyway chrisstubbs :)
[18:28] <fsphil> Steve_2E0VET: I'd suggest transmitting a few null bytes, 0x00
[18:28] <Steve_2E0VET> chrisstubbs, anywhere up to 8
[18:28] <fsphil> before your string
[18:28] <fsphil> fldigi locks into nulls quite well
[18:28] <ibanezmatt13> Lunar_Lander: I installed the jumbo driver L/
[18:28] <Steve_2E0VET> fsphil, ok
[18:29] <Steve_2E0VET> conference will be 43 if my missus will let me go
[18:29] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[18:29] <Lunar_Lander> that seems to be correct for avrstudio
[18:29] <ibanezmatt13> So there's another driver I need for the ide?
[18:29] <Lunar_Lander> yea and there is the problem
[18:29] <Steve_2E0VET> fsphil, if i transmit some nulls do i need to put that in the flight doc
[18:29] <daveake> no
[18:29] <Lunar_Lander> these jumbo drivers or however they are called resist uninstalling for some reason
[18:30] <daveake> and you mean "payload doc" :)
[18:30] <Steve_2E0VET> daveake, yes sorry
[18:30] <ibanezmatt13> that's not good. Will the new driver not overwrite it Lunar_Lander ?

[18:52] <Lunar_Lander> that one is a filter for such cases like Jungo vs. avrdude
[18:52] <mfa298> I've not tried it on win8 yet but when I first tried my avrispmkII I had various driver problems with it
[18:53] <mfa298> I only found out after a reinstall of windows and only installing avr studio
[18:53] <mfa298> that was all on win7
[18:53] <ibanezmatt13_> ah
[18:53] <ibanezmatt13_> well for now until I can sort an old OS out I could always use the arduino itself as the programmer.

[18:54] <ibanezmatt13_> in fact, I don't think I could
[18:54] <ibanezmatt13_> or could I? damn
[18:55] <chrisstubbs> yes
[18:55] <ibanezmatt13_> even for a completely different chip
[18:55] <ibanezmatt13_> attiny
[18:55] <ibanezmatt13_> ?
[18:56] <ibanezmatt13_> with no bootloader?
[18:56] <chrisstubbs> yep
[18:56] <chrisstubbs> its just acting as an ISP programmer
[18:56] <ibanezmatt13_> How should I wire it up?
[18:56] <ibanezmatt13_> same way as programmer?
[18:57] <ibanezmatt13_> don't I have to use the arduino without the chip on board to use it as a programmer?
[18:57] <chrisstubbs> http://arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/ArduinoToBreadboard
[18:58] <ibanezmatt13_> I've done that before using TX and RX but not with SCK, MISO and MOSI
[18:58] <chrisstubbs> Nope. you have to have the chip on
[18:58] <chrisstubbs> you load the arduinoisp sketch onto your proper arduino board, that "translates" the usb (serial) input from the PC into SPI
[18:59] <ibanezmatt13_> ah right ok
[18:59] <ibanezmatt13_> I'll do that now
[18:59] <chrisstubbs> ISP, SPI, whatever
[19:00] <ibanezmatt13_> I didn't want to use the arduino because it wasn't working properly (I think I broke it, long story)
[19:02] <ibanezmatt13_> yeah, must be broken: avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x00
[19:02] <ibanezmatt13_> :(
[19:02] <mfa298> I think with that error message it's trying to use a different programmer rather than look for the avrispmkII
[19:03] <mfa298> (based on the stk500 which I think is some other programmer)
[19:03] <ibanezmatt13_> mfa298: I've discarded the mkII for now
[19:03] <ibanezmatt13_> just using an arduino board
[19:03] <ibanezmatt13_> even that's not working
[19:04] <ibanezmatt13_> Maybe the chip is knackered
[19:05] <chrisstubbs> dinnertime brb
[19:05] <Lunar_Lander> same here
[19:06] <ibanezmatt13_> I've made a definite conclusion; my arduino board is... no more
[19:06] <ibanezmatt13_> which leaves me only with the programmer to program chips
[19:07] <ibanezmatt13_> Where I have only win 8 machines which don't support it

[22:24] <G0TDJ_Steve> Oh and Laurenceb_ There's a font called Franchise Bold: http://www.derekweathersbee.com/franchise/ Also can be used commercially.
[22:24] <Laurenceb_> it was using system fonts due to licensing
[22:24] <Laurenceb_> and breaking
[22:24] <G0TDJ_Steve> Right
[22:24] <Laurenceb_> im not really a font guru :P
[22:24] <G0TDJ_Steve> I am a little...
[22:24] <Laurenceb_> i've been trying to use Helvetica for diagrams and stuff
[22:24] <Laurenceb_> as it looks okish
[22:24] <G0TDJ_Steve> I have rather a large collection - Although I tend to stick to very few for designing
[22:25] <G0TDJ_Steve> I'm pretty sure you'll find a usable alternative on Squirrel
[22:26] <Laurenceb_> yeah ive written a shell script to fix my pdfs now
[22:26] <G0TDJ_Steve> Well done
