[04:06] <Joel_re> when parsing gps data
[04:06] <Joel_re> do I need to worry about storing them as strings or thier real type
[04:06] <Joel_re> floats etc
[04:07] <Joel_re> I was hoping to do some gps fencing
[04:07] <Joel_re> might need it for that
[04:07] <Joel_re> but nothing else
[04:08] <Randomskk> you probably want their real type so you can transmit as decimal degrees (NMEA has degs and minutes which is a bit more annoying)
[04:08] <Randomskk> but habitat does support transmitting decimal degrees. just make sure to check the direction so you can add a negative sign if required.
[04:08] <Randomskk> uh. does support transmitting degrees and minutes*
[04:14] <Joel_re> Randomskk: oh ok, thanks for the pointer

[14:33] <M0TVU> Hi Thanks I found that one before. It doesn't seem to relate to the PCB I have. I think it's called a one core. Two silvered boxes either side with a motorola chipset and a 10 way header

[14:58] <ibanezmatt13> NORB failed temporarily
[14:58] <ibanezmatt13> Thanks Steve
[14:58] <ibanezmatt13> fsphil: I think it failed due to a flightmode error.
[14:58] <LeoBodnar> It helps to get 1st flight right
[14:58] <fsphil> it does sound like it ibanezmatt13

[15:02] <mikestir> LeoBodnar: how long do you expect this one to last (battery wise)?
[15:02] <G7PMO_Kev> and only 2 sentances to get it right when it does tx :)
[15:02] <G0TDJ_Steve> G7PMO_Kev: It occasionally does 3
[15:03] <LeoBodnar> If solar power is enough to replenish the batteries then quite awhile
[15:03] <LeoBodnar> So far LiPo is seem to be bursting at seams with energy
[15:03] <G0TDJ_Steve> This ones solar LeoBodnar ? :D
[15:03] <LeoBodnar> Not sure what happens in the night
[15:04] <Geoff-G8DHE> LeoBodnar, On the data out from Habitat, its showing a couple jumps back to launch, but they don't show on the tracker which seems odd ?

[15:04] <G7PMO_Kev> Now I have the frequency spot on, I can see the beacon in dl-fldgig, but I see no sign of the beacon in SDR# at all, so nothing to tune to except every 5 mins..

[15:05] <GMT> in SDR# you can just about see a tiny trace of the 2-secs beacon/pulse
[15:05] <LeoBodnar> Geoff-G8DHE: it sends a brief flight log every two hours containing two hours datapoints
[15:05] <LeoBodnar> so you get repeats every two hours

[16:26] <mikestir> well macbooks are quite good, iphones aren't
[16:26] <LeoBodnar> I have used it and it's OK Will_
[16:27] <Mike_MJW> I just remembered I have a PI doing nothing and a spare FCD Proplus. I could make it into a remote server if it has enough processing power.
[16:27] <LeoBodnar> For sending back the position of the car mostly
[16:27] <mattbrejza> so this round of my decoder vs fldigi was 356 - 249 (me - fldigi)
[16:27] <Will_> Thanks Leo. There are a few androids in out chase car too if there is a similar app
[16:28] <Will_> Thanks Leo. There are a few androids in our chase car too if there is a similar app

[16:33] <Mike_MJW> Can you run android on a PI?
[16:34] <g4vxe> Mike: believe so, but not tried it
[16:35] <Mike_MJW> Suppose it would be short on RAM, not to mention a touch screen. I suspect a PI won't run fl-digi and an SDR application at the same time.
[16:36] <fsphil> it can't really run fldigi on its own
[16:36] <Mike_MJW> But if we could get fl-digi to work with IQ input rather than audio,
[16:36] <fsphil> some people have reported it working but I've found it to be just slightly too slow for real time decoding
[16:36] <Mike_MJW> fsphil: Thanks - I thought that likely.

[16:37] <fsphil> it did seem to be using a lot of cpu time drawing the screen
[16:37] <fsphil> not sure if it's the fltk or xorg
[16:37] <g4vxe> Fsphil: Did you try disabling the multi channel decode. I read that helped
[16:37] <Mike_MJW> A remote server needs no screen refreshing, or at least not often.
[16:37] <fsphil> I'm not sure what that is g4vxe?
[16:38] <Mike_MJW> There are several alternatives to the PI that might be better.
[16:39] <g4vxe> I think by default it will try to decode whatever signals it hears in the bandwidth. But you can force it to only decode one, saving processing power. But that was something I read and haven't tried yet :-)
[16:39] <fsphil> I think it only does that if the signal browser is opened
[16:39] <craag> fsphil: In more recent versions, yes. In the current dl-fldigi release, no.

[19:43] <bertrik> I wonder that about THOR too
[19:43] <SP9UOB-Tom> LeoBodnar: and what the pattern should look ?
[19:44] DrPi (~DrPi@bl7-107-163.dsl.telepac.pt) joined #highaltitude.
[19:44] <LeoBodnar> Good idea. BUt I suspect there is already a simple mechanical or chemical way of doing it.
[19:44] <SP9UOB-Tom> Laurenceb_: just burn some RCandy fulel, in 1gram portions
[19:44] <LeoBodnar> Just use smaller battery next time :)
[19:44] <SP9UOB-Tom> fired with resistors
[19:44] <Laurenceb_> good idea
[19:45] <bertrik> THOR sends 16 '0' symbols and then an idle symbol as pre-amble
[19:45] <Laurenceb_> but youd need a very hot resistor
[19:45] <Laurenceb_> i find really hot resistors fail too quickly
[19:46] <LeoBodnar> Sound about right. You need to break any "sync lock" that Domex/thor think they have by listening to noise
[19:46] <SP9UOB-Tom> bertrik: 17 symbols take ages at DominoEx4 ;-)
[19:46] RocketBoy (~steverand@ joined #highaltitude.
[19:46] <LeoBodnar> SOme varicodes are better then the others in this respect
[19:47] <LeoBodnar> Experiment with different chars and lengths
[19:47] <SP9UOB-Tom> ok im going to dig in fldigi source :-)
[19:48] <LeoBodnar> There is no required pattern SP9UOB-Tom
[19:48] <LeoBodnar> So whatever works, use it
[19:48] <Randomskk> some people like UUUU because it's alternating every bit
[19:48] <Randomskk> but also $$$$$$ is common
[19:49] <mattbrejza> surely a repeating pattern is bad from a finding start of frame point of view?
[19:49] <SP9UOB-Tom> UUUUU in secondary characterset should be ok :-)
[19:49] Guest205 (561a9261@gateway/web/freenode/ip. left irc: Ping timeout: 250 seconds
[19:50] <mattbrejza> it depends on the scheme i suppose
[19:50] <LeoBodnar> Maybe make firmware recycle sync chars and observe
[19:50] <mattbrejza> it doesnt really make much difference for rs232 rtty
[19:50] <LeoBodnar> Randomskk: "U" is three tones code in DomEX while most other chars are 2 or 1
[19:50] <Randomskk> yea might not work so well for domex
[19:50] <Randomskk> didn't know it was three tones. that's weird. why?
[19:50] <chrisg7ogx> just got back from scoffing. Is there aNTHING STILL UP AND TXING PLEASE?
[19:51] <mattbrejza> three symbols rather than three tones
[19:52] <LeoBodnar> Ideally you want a sync char that is statistically unique when affected by noise
[19:52] <Iain_G4SGX_> Would have though 0xFF would be good.
[19:53] <mattbrejza> how many tones are used in domex4?
[19:53] Nerdsville_ (516285cb@gateway/web/freenode/ip. joined #highaltitude.
[19:53] <Randomskk> ideally you want a decoder that is actually looking for sync chars :P

[19:54] <LeoBodnar> Murray Greenman just made Varicode alphabet up
[19:54] <mattbrejza> and so its a var-length code, where characters are sent in either 1,2 or 3 symbols?
[19:55] <LeoBodnar> Obviously statistically more frequent characters got shorter symbols
[19:55] <LeoBodnar> like Morse code
[19:55] <mattbrejza> so surely the best sync char is a few 1-legnth ones so that when you start the sentence it isnt expecting more symbols for a character?
[19:55] <Randomskk> U is uncommon?
[19:55] <chrisg7ogx> x-f tks
[19:55] <Laurenceb_> whats the lipo capacity?
[19:55] <Randomskk> I guess an upper case U isn't that common
[19:56] <Laurenceb_> looks to be losing a millivolt per minute or so
[19:56] <LeoBodnar> They recycle so you want to define the codes number 0 and 17 as soon as possible to stop receiver guessing.
[19:56] <mattbrejza> does domex use tcm too?
[19:57] <LeoBodnar> No sense in using the chars that get translated to symbols towards the centre of the freq band.
[19:58] <LeoBodnar> However I assume that fldigi is clever. THis might be stupid.
[19:58] <mattbrejza> why dont you document these things :/
[19:58] <mattbrejza> are there any other domex rx software other than fldigi?

[20:00] <chrisg7ogx> yes hrd does
[20:00] <Laurenceb_> so like 20 hours or so?
[20:01] <SP9UOB-Tom> heheh secondary channel is displayed on the statusline :-)
[20:01] <Laurenceb_> hopefully more
[20:01] <mattbrejza> do any characters use '8' as their first symbol?
[20:01] <Iain_G4SGX_> Certainly wont get to look at the source for HRD anymore, they're de;leting the free versions from the repository soon
[20:01] <SP9UOB-Tom> anyway "U" in row sounds like R2D2 ;-)
[20:02] <LeoBodnar> No mattbrejza

[20:02] <DL7AD> LeoBodnar did you experiment with the lifepo batteries?
[20:02] <Laurenceb_> life- po

[20:03] <mattbrejza> yea just noticed that
[20:03] <LeoBodnar> I have one on my desk. It's my second choice
[20:03] <Laurenceb_> hmm
[20:03] <chrisg7ogx> HRD DominoEx 4 8 and 16
[20:03] <WillTablet> Hi
[20:03] <Laurenceb_> i wonder if its getting superheated
[20:03] <Laurenceb_> theres lots of low altitude warm cloud under it
[20:04] <Laurenceb_> its not sinking as much as normal
[20:04] <Laurenceb_> maybe its getting long wave IR
[20:04] <mattbrejza> so surely the only sync domex needs is to get the bit sampler synced, as it can tell the start of a character without having any sort of sync?
[20:04] <LeoBodnar> maybe just a set of chars that are only 1 symbol long like "eeeeeeeeeeee" and exercise all the freq bins woul be the best sync
[20:05] <LeoBodnar> In theory yes.
[20:05] <LeoBodnar> Two symbols closer than 8 -> sync
[20:06] <LeoBodnar> Haven't looked at fldigi code.
[20:06] <bertrik> doesn't dominoex have an explicit preamble itself already, instead of trying to encode the preamble in the message content?
[20:06] <mattbrejza> and so a 16 word is translated to a 18-ary symbol?

[20:07] <ibanezmatt13> I'm afraid Pi Cam wasn't as HD as we expected
[20:07] <LeoBodnar> Ah, yes, there are plenty of holes
[20:07] <LeoBodnar> They are discarded
[20:07] <ibanezmatt13> The payload must have spun round faster than a centrifuge most of the flight :(
[20:08] <ibanezmatt13> We got some "watchable" video on launch, a little bit at altitude, but it was most watchable lower altitude
[20:09] <SP9UOB-Tom> http://www.qsl.net/zl1bpu/MFSK/DominoEX%20Varicode%20Table.pdf
[20:09] <LeoBodnar> Smart decoder would accumulate the whole sentence and analyse it as a whole rather than trying to re-sync all the time.
[20:10] <LeoBodnar> Domex is not really a good packet protocol - it's a "conversation" mode
[20:10] <mattbrejza> the mapping between a nibble and a 18-ary symbol might be important for sync?
[20:11] <Iain_G4SGX_> LeoBodnar: B10 has drifted about 100Hz in the last 2 hours, not bad for no software freq adjust. (I think I remeber you saying it was switched off this flight)

[20:15] <alxhotel> Haha you need to put straws to pervent the spin
[20:15] <ibanezmatt13> ah right
[20:15] <mattbrejza> did it just lose lock?
[20:15] <mattbrejza> stop transmitting?
[20:15] <ibanezmatt13> well, I could see one of the tones constamt
[20:15] <ibanezmatt13> just not the other one which gives data
[20:15] <mikestir> current freq for b10? seems to have disappeared since I went to watch Tv.
[20:15] <mattbrejza> so it wasnt transmitting data?
[20:16] <ibanezmatt13> So it's either no lock or flightmode error I think, I may be wrong
[20:16] <ibanezmatt13> no data
[20:16] <daveake_> That's because your code was stuck waiting on the GPS
[20:16] <ibanezmatt13> are you sure daveake_
[20:16] <daveake_> yes
[20:16] <ibanezmatt13> could it have not been flight mode?
[20:16] <daveake_> yes
[20:16] <ibanezmatt13> exactly :/
[20:16] <mattbrejza> well it worked >12km?
[20:16] <daveake_> so your code expected data that it didn't get because the gps wasn't in flight mode
[20:16] <LeoBodnar> Iain_G4SGX_: yes, it's off, not bad for 10C to -28C range
[20:16] <ibanezmatt13> it came back for a but at 28km though...
[20:16] <ibanezmatt13> it
[20:17] <ibanezmatt13> bit
[20:17] <daveake_> Add a timeout and get it to repeat the previous position, rather than just stop transmitting
[20:17] <ibanezmatt13> I've got a timeout, I guess I could do that5
[20:17] <daveake_> Did you log the gps data?
[20:17] <ibanezmatt13> no
[20:17] <daveake_> Do that then in case you get an issue next time

[21:35] <craag> Nice DL7AD
[21:36] <craag> What antenna do you use on the airplane?
[21:36] <DL7AD> for 2m aprs?
[21:37] <craag> Yeah
[21:38] <DL7AD> simple omnidirectional. throw it all together onto my instruments below the windshield.
[21:38] <craag> Ok cool
[21:38] <DL7AD> 500mW is quiet sufficient up there
[21:38] <craag> I'm sure!
[21:39] <craag> Might have a go at a compact APRS digipeater with the BiM1H and a pi.
[21:39] <craag> Add a ublox for mobile beacon :)
[21:39] <DL7AD> at this time i built this tracker i did not know anything about ublox
[21:40] <DL7AD> it uses a em406a gps
[21:41] <DL7AD> its brutal thick when i think about ublox max7 or 6
[21:41] <SP9UOB-Tom> craag: compact digipeater is here: http://sp9uob.verox.pl/dsdigi.html just add Baofeng UV-3R
[21:42] <craag> SP9UOB-Tom: Very nice. I've played around with AVR and a rig for beacon, not rx though
[21:42] <craag> I like the idea of having software control of the Pi though.
[21:42] <SP9UOB-Tom> craag: my project seems to has best performance over the world :-)
[21:42] <craag> And can add a 3G dongle for rx-igate /aprsis beacons
[21:43] <craag> SP9UOB-Tom: Have you got the code up somewhere?

[21:44] <craag> Yeah I saw that. Code not public then?
[21:45] <SP9UOB-Tom> not now.
[21:46] <craag> Fair enough, algorithm diagram looks impressive!

[23:39] <WillTablet> I wish I understood that -
[23:39] <WillTablet> :-)
[23:40] <chrisstubbs> Basically
[23:40] <chrisstubbs> when you apply a small current to the gate
[23:41] <chrisstubbs> it allows a greater current to flow from source to drain
[23:41] <chrisstubbs> so you put your heater in series with drain
[23:41] <WillTablet> I see.
[23:41] <chrisstubbs> and adjust the duty cycle of your PWM to adjust the heat
[23:42] <WillTablet> But damn that heater's expensive.
[23:42] <WillTablet> Made by Honeywell
[23:42] <chrisstubbs> yeah lol get a coffee heater from poundland and use that
[23:42] <chrisstubbs> Okay CHDK had built with my awful C code, to for sleep!

[23:47] <WillTablet> Can't be a good idea as a coffee heater.

[23:55] <mfa298> WillTablet: that panel heater isn't going to heat much up quikly - it's probably not going to provide much more heat than a 40W incandescant light bulb
[23:56] <WillTablet> Hmm I suppose you need a few.
[23:56] <WillTablet> Not sure what the energy loss is on a 40w bulb like that.
[23:56] <mfa298> it will also need a fairly chunky PSU (P=IV, you have P and V so you can solve for I)
[23:57] <mfa298> an old style lightbulb generates two things, light and heat. I suspect at least 50% of the energy is heat
[23:58] <WillTablet> Hmm we are only thinking of controlling the temperature in a smallish greenhouse so I'm not sure what's best.
[23:59] <mfa298> whilst is probably can't be trusted as a source wikipedia says most incandescent bulbs convert less than 5% of the energy they use into visible light[1] (with the remaining energy being converted into heat)
