[00:57] <wrea> smrtz: its for batt backup
[00:59] <smrtz> I get that, but in Upus schematic, it's to a small resistor, than to ground.
[00:59] <smrtz> I'm amusing that's how that feature is turned off.
[01:01] <wrea> Yeah
[01:02] <jarod> The highest in Loudness 87.5 FM Amsterdam, does that count? :D
[01:04] <wrea> ublox docs say you can connect it to vcc if not using a backup batt
[01:06] <wrea> Looks like connecting it to vcc is acceptable as of the 7's but you can go to gnd like on the 6's just fine

[05:45] <yo5pjb> My antenna is obturated somehow on the south-west... and also I have a hill in that direction

[05:52] <Upu> the last entry I see for B-11 on the map is 23:59:20
[05:52] <Upu> yes there is a 5 min gap between the actual points
[05:52] <yo5pjb> or should be the same coordinates twice... but are errors at reception side
[05:53] <Upu> just transmits every 5 mins

[09:22] <mfa298> if you're using a radio with suitable controls you'll probably do better to use that to limit the bandwidth your listening to - On stable transmissions I've reduced the filters to only show the bit of spectrum I'm interested in

[09:23] <HixWork> has anyone used AA SMT clips on PCBs for trackers? Thinking them and some tape would be a pretty secure compact solution, with less liklihood of bad connections
[09:23] <HixWork> http://goo.gl/tP1imX
[09:23] <enkidu> mfa298: I got pully parametric equalizer, that is able to select one frequency and remove others. It is rather for searching
[09:24] <gonzo_> fl digi will be digitising the whole spectrum, regardless of any pre filtering, and will be doing all the filtering in the SW. Adding narrow analogue filters coudl actually cause problems, with them ringing and corrupting the data

[09:26] <G0TDJ_Steve> My pleasure LeoBodnar Let me know if you need anything else
[09:27] <mfa298> I think I've found the radio bandwidth filters have helped if there's strong noise to the sides of the signal but otherwise they've not done much. Same would probably be true with any other audio eq. it's not made any noticable difference with just white noise at the sides

[09:44] <Bo_DK> its a good day to get some code-work done.... pissing down outside :-(
[09:44] <Bo_DK> thou i have to figure a BBB lib from adafruit
[09:45] <Bo_DK> its a lib for servos..its made for 180 degree ones...

[09:45] <Bo_DK> i think my 360 degree 6 turn servo will just go 6 turns if i ask it to go180 degree
[09:46] <Bo_DK> next would be to source gears with 1:6 ratio
[09:46] <Bo_DK> and one of them big enough to be screwed to a sheet of mdf
[09:47] <Bo_DK> that i gave up on last night... ie finding the gears
[09:47] <Bo_DK> would love a 3D printer
[09:48] <HixWork> why not use steppers with gears on? great control and loadsa torque
[09:48] <SP3OSJ> so, my balloon (SP3OSJ) he's probably dead
[09:48] <HixWork> http://www.hpcgears.com/ could give you some ideas
[09:48] <Bo_DK> hehe.. i have asked myself until i saw a list of of pros and cons
[09:49] <Bo_DK> they only lack one thing.... they dont know where they point
[09:49] <Bo_DK> and servos have torque enough... given you dont by the smallest ones
[09:49] <Bo_DK> i go for the biggest and most powerfull

[10:02] <HixWork> I assume the reason engineering drawings are in caps is that they are used on the shopfloor where it is loud, so they have to be heard

[11:53] <Babs> lets say we are at a UK latitude and longitude, at ground level, call the polar co-ordinates x,y and z where x is lat, y is long and z = 0 (in this example)
[11:53] <x-f> Maxell, i can't split it, so they both appear on the same graph, you'll need to specify the actual flight time by yourself - 2013-03-02 10:30 / 2013-03-03 13:30 and 2013-06-30 9:30 / 2013-06-30 12:30

[11:55] <eroomde> so just making a flat cartesian xyz system centered on some point on the earth
[11:56] <eroomde> swapping to cartesian/LTP is great for smallish stuff

[11:56] <eroomde> your*
[11:56] <eroomde> so for getting stats about the gps lock and distributions i use LTP
[11:56] <Babs> but obviously goes up exponentially as you go out to 100 miles between the balloon and the target spot i want it to point at
[11:57] <eroomde> yep
[11:57] <eroomde> for the gps stuff we basically do everything in ECEF
[11:57] <eroomde> and just translate to LLA for the user output
[11:57] <Babs> with ECEF my target point on the ground will effectively move over time I think
[11:57] <eroomde> (lat/lon/alt, sorry)
[11:58] <eroomde> if it's the moon's shadow then yeah i guess
[11:58] <Babs> so i dont known whether moving to ECEF just creates an added complexity that i dont need
[11:58] <Babs> no, not the moon shadow
[11:58] <Babs> just any static point on earth will move in an ECEF (i think) as the ECEF frame of reference moves with the earths rotation (ie it is fixed in the earth)
[11:59] <eroomde> ah no
[11:59] <eroomde> that's ECI - earth centered inertial
[11:59] mclane (~uli@p5B02F336.dip0.t-ipconnect.de) joined #highaltitude.
[11:59] <eroomde> so earth centered inertial is the one that is fixed relative to the sun and space
[11:59] <eroomde> earth centred earth fixed is attached to the rock
[11:59] <Babs> ahh, so ECEF of (Greenwich) say, will be a fixed point cartesian set of co-ordinates that doesnt move over time?
[12:00] <eroomde> yes exactly
[12:00] <eroomde> z is the north pole, x is greenwich merdian
[12:00] <Babs> i'm going with that then.
[12:00] <Babs> trig. easy.

[13:19] <mattbrejza> ive tunneled rdc over ssh before
[13:19] <fsphil> you could tunnel port 3389 for rdp
[13:19] <eroomde> if a listener tunrs up soon downrange of B11 it would be a Turkish Delight
[13:20] <HixWork> would i not need to set 3389 to forward on the router at home?
[13:20] <mattbrejza> its a bit weird though, the local ip/port cant be, you have to use 127.254.254.xxx because the rdc client is weird
[13:20] <fsphil> you'd only need to ssh to a machine on your home lan

[14:10] <Babs> Ugi - If you go on the CAA website and search you will find the form. Alternatively, if you ring up the CAA and ask for the person who deals with met balloon releases and describe what you are looking to launch (description and weight), when and location (do not say Heathrow) he will point you in the direction of what you need to fill in.

[14:40] <Geoff-G8DHE> There is already a stream for HAB work
[14:40] <mfa298> batc has the advantage of no adverts but might need a windows machine to stream from

[14:41] <HixWork> Right I've updated the CAA page on the wiki with the airsapce maps and the newer 2009 .doc form.
[14:42] <mfa298> the actual stream was from the couple of video camereas in the room (and was managed by Noel down the front of the room)

[14:42] <mikestir-work> was dave's chase car for ted just a laptop as well?
[14:43] <mfa298> I think it was a composite feed from various sources into a video mixer and then into a pc to actual send the stream
[14:43] <mfa298> I think when dave's done it for his launches it's just been a laptop using the ukhas stream
[14:44] <enkidu> Geoff-G8DHE: for what? :) for my use original case is best. I can change connector so it would be BNC or F type
[14:44] <mikestir-work> might see if I can cobble something together for using a phone. there are a couple of android apps but they tend to require an inbound connection, so LAN only
[14:44] <mikestir-work> at least one is open source though

[15:44] <LeoBodnar> Laurenceb_: I need to try this on dsPIC, it all depends how good and clean PLL is.
[15:44] <mattbrejza> so probably a bit early to put together a 5W IQ transmitter on 144?
[15:44] <steve_____> mattbrejza: you're not considering the suggestion of only sending the delta telemetry, just the transmission?
[15:44] <Laurenceb_> yeah - the stm32 pll jitter seems ok

[15:45] <Laurenceb_> ironically its only just good enough for ethernet
[15:45] <Laurenceb_> the revision A silicone has ethernet issues
[15:45] <LeoBodnar> What are the value ranges for PLL_N PLL_M and what VCO limits it should stay within?
[15:45] <Laurenceb_> but for shortwave it seems ok
[15:45] <Laurenceb_> the VCO runs at ~200 to 500MHz
[15:45] <mattbrejza> steve_____: my suggestion would support a single gps position and mutliple ones via deltas ( i might not have made it clear on the page though)
[15:45] daveake (~daveake@ left irc: Ping timeout: 264 seconds
[15:45] <Laurenceb_> N is 9 bits
[15:46] <Laurenceb_> so you step by one part in 512 or so
[15:46] <LeoBodnar> What is PLL_M range?
[15:46] <Laurenceb_> you can divide with two dividers to get the MCO2 out at ~13.5MHz
[15:46] dpokluda (836b9316@gateway/web/freenode/ip. left irc: Client Quit
[15:46] <Laurenceb_> 1 to 8
[15:46] <Laurenceb_> then there is a 1 to 5 divider following it
[15:47] <Laurenceb_> - on the output
[15:47] <Laurenceb_> something like that...
[15:47] <steve_____> mattbrejza: I would like to help if I can, is there anything you want to farm out?
[15:47] <Laurenceb_> http://www.st.com/web/en/resource/technical/document/reference_manual/CD00171190.pdf
[15:48] <LeoBodnar> Laurenceb_: VCO range 192..432 is this right?
[15:48] <Laurenceb_> ah yeah thats it
[15:48] <mattbrejza> well atm its just coming up with ideas rathe rthan implementing anything
[15:49] <Laurenceb_> ultimate payload : just an F401 transmitting a PRN sequence on 13MHz :P

[15:50] <Laurenceb_> pages 114 and 179
[15:50] <steve_____> has anyone considered compression or removal of unneeded data - not sure on the power saving ability..
[15:51] <steve_____> I guess your idea is to use binary to remove any ASCII bloat
[15:51] <mattbrejza> it has been thought of, nothing more than that though
[15:52] <steve_____> a limited character set may be useful
[15:53] <chrisstubbs> mattbrejza, you were saying about only integrating it into ians SDR program. would that not be a problem for people with normal ham radios?
[15:53] <LeoBodnar> You can get much better resolution by finding combinations of different PLL settings. Run all allowed permutations of all possible values, delete illegal combinations (e.g. VCO out of range) and sort by output frequency. You'll get much tighter stepping than by altering just multiplier.
[15:53] <Laurenceb_> if you ran 16bit DMA to RCC_PLLI2SCFGR...
[15:53] <LeoBodnar> That's what I do when I need to squeeze the last bit of resolution out of PLL
[15:54] <mattbrejza> can always add audio to that program
[15:54] <mattbrejza> also it was mike not ian
[15:54] <chrisstubbs> Ah yes sorry
[15:54] <LeoBodnar> Often silly manufacturers calculation programs can't do this because it is not reversible operation
[15:55] <LeoBodnar> I.e. you can't come up with a formula to derive PLL parameters from requested freq. Only exhaustive search can find the best match

[17:57] <eroomde_> was good to meet you in person
[17:57] <ibanezmatt13> yeah, you too Ed
[17:58] <ibanezmatt13> I'm just revising D1. Kruskal's, Prim's and Dijkstra's algorithms on networks. Pretty straight forward to be honest
[17:59] <eroomde_> i think i've forgotten most of those except Dijkstra's
[17:59] <Willdude123> Was anyone completely different to how you imagined them?
[17:59] <eroomde_> but algorithms for navigating through graphs are really cool
[18:00] <ibanezmatt13> they are actually. I found it quite interesting calculating minimum spanning trees and stuff
[18:00] <eroomde_> there's one that's super useful in forward error correction called the Viterbi Algorithm
[18:00] <ibanezmatt13> Willdude123: Some yes
[18:00] <Willdude123> Obviously I'm a <insert expletive> in real life as well
[18:00] <eroomde_> as usual the wikipedia entry on the viterbi algorithm makes it look like you'd need a phd to understand it
[18:01] <ibanezmatt13> It's the same for most of them. If you get good quality teaching, it all makes a lot of sense and it's really easy to apply
[18:01] <eroomde_> yeah indeed
[18:01] <mattbrejza> ahaha lolwut that wiki page

[18:01] <eroomde_> that's basically what i keep hammering away about. nothing is really that hard usually, it's just about finding the right way of seeing it
[18:02] <ibanezmatt13> in case you're interested eroomde_: http://filestore.aqa.org.uk/subjects/AQA-MD01-QP-JAN12.PDF
[18:02] <ibanezmatt13> correct ^
[18:02] <eroomde_> although there was a lot of stuff in my gps talk, i hope at least it's persuaded people that it's not pure witchcraft
[18:02] <eroomde_> that it's actually a whole bunch of fairly simple concepts chained together
[18:02] <eroomde_> i'll have a look at the paper pares curry
[18:03] <eroomde_> going to curry up the arko
[18:03] <ibanezmatt13> lol
[18:03] <eroomde_> apres*
[18:03] <eroomde_> having a go at writing these algorithms in python would be a really useful exercise too
[18:04] <ibanezmatt13> ah yes, didn't think of that
[18:04] <eroomde_> i.e., how to represent a graph in code and then how to solve it
[18:04] <ibanezmatt13> I'll have a go
[18:04] <eroomde_> it would be a super good exercise.
[18:04] <kpiman> It would be good to have them back. Not knowing how long they lasted would be a let down.
[18:05] <eroomde_> hint: dictionaries are a really good data structure to help you construct graphs
[18:05] <ibanezmatt13> I've heard of those
[18:05] <ibanezmatt13> Same sort of things as tupules and lists, but not the same
[18:05] <eroomde_> they're super useful
[18:05] <ibanezmatt13> I'll have a look
[18:05] <eroomde_> they're key/value stores
[18:06] <eroomde_> so there is a 'value' associated with a 'key'. key just means name
[18:06] <eroomde_> value is just an object
[18:06] <ibanezmatt13> aah
[18:06] <eroomde_> so let's say you have a triangular graph, with 3 nodes: A, B and C

[18:07] <adamgreig> eroomde_: my prn radar worked. well.
[18:08] <eroomde_> adamgreig: awesome!
[18:08] <adamgreig> except I still can't see return pulses. but I'm suddenly not so convinced I'm not seeing return pulses only.
[18:08] <eroomde_> right
[18:08] <eroomde_> ibanezmatt13: http://pastebin.com/GsT4jd08
[18:08] <adamgreig> if I cover one tube with foil, the entire signal drops entirely
[18:08] <ibanezmatt13> thanks
[18:08] <adamgreig> which kind of suggests that actually none of the transmitted pulse is leaking through
[18:08] <eroomde_> so the 'key' in the first line is 'A' and the 'value' is a list saying what 'A' is connected to
[18:08] <eroomde_> you could query it by saying
[18:08] LeoBodnar (5c116e74@gateway/web/freenode/ip. joined #highaltitude.
[18:09] <eroomde_> mygraph['A']
[18:09] <ibanezmatt13> ah ok
[18:09] <eroomde_> and get back the list ['B', 'C']
[18:09] <eroomde_> so it's sort of like a list or an array except the entries in it have names
[18:09] <ibanezmatt13> right, so I just need to modify that to hold the individual weights of the paths
[18:10] <adamgreig> eroomde_: quick demo video: https://www.dropbox.com/sc/mu77a0clozhyii3/dfnfbmZstR
[18:10] <eroomde_> so instead of some_list[45] returning the 45th element of some_list, instead you have some_dictionary[key] which returns whatever is after the colon in the 'key' entry on the some_dictionary
[18:10] <eroomde_> ibanezmatt13: yep
[18:10] <arko> adamgreig: in any condition have you been able to measure it without that second spike?
[18:10] <eroomde_> so you could have a tuple in the list
[18:10] <adamgreig> arko: uhm. kind of.
[18:10] <ibanezmatt13> got it eroomde_, thanks
[18:11] <adamgreig> but not in any way that suggests the second spike was really a return pulse
[18:11] <eroomde_> 'A': [('B',13), ('C', 7)] say
[18:11] <arko> hm
[18:11] <eroomde_> which would be a weight of 13 between A and B and 7 between A and C, say

[18:11] <adamgreig> what I really really need is the sample metadata stuff
[18:11] <ibanezmatt13> that's a good way to do it
[18:11] <adamgreig> they've not implemented it on the fpga yet
[18:11] DrLuke (~quassel@v120420003125117.hostingparadise.de) left irc: Write error: Broken pipe
[18:11] <adamgreig> so there's currently no way of knowing how the TX buffers and RX buffers align
[18:11] DrLuke (~quassel@2a00:6480:2:1:0:1:351a:5b9a) joined #highaltitude.
[18:11] <adamgreig> if I got that, I could know exactly when the TX happened
[18:12] <eroomde_> ah yes i see
[18:12] <adamgreig> I was hoping there'd be enough leakage from tx to rx to be able to see the tx pulse
[18:12] <adamgreig> but it's not clear that that's the case
[18:12] <adamgreig> I could add an attenuated electrical path directly between the two
[18:12] <eroomde_> i wonder though
[18:12] <adamgreig> also the other big way of doing radar - pulses with linearly swept frequency/chirps
[18:13] <adamgreig> where you have a 0.1ms pulse that runs 0 to 10MHz modulated onto carrier
[18:13] <adamgreig> I just realised how you actually decode that
[18:13] <adamgreig> which is to modulate your received data at the same rate
[18:13] <eroomde_> yeah
[18:13] <arko> adamgreig: ed just told me what you are doing
[18:13] <LeoBodnar> Does Ofcom allow radars to use specific freq band or do you need to get a licence for this?
[18:13] <arko> freakin brilliant
[18:13] <adamgreig> so mix the baseband samples with an LO that is modulated the same as the TX
[18:13] <adamgreig> LeoBodnar: I'm actually using my amateur license
[18:13] <adamgreig> and pulsing my callsign real quick right at the start
[18:14] <adamgreig> on 3.4GHz
[18:14] <eroomde_> right arko, it's curry time
[18:14] <adamgreig> and anyway once you mix the baseband rx samples with the LO taht's modulated
[18:14] <arko> woo!
[18:14] <adamgreig> your return pulse is right there
[18:14] <arko> curry
[18:14] <adamgreig> like a 600Hz signal
[18:14] <adamgreig> enjoy your curry!

[18:14] <eroomde_> bbl
[18:14] <LeoBodnar> Oh, stick CQ there to be squeaky clean
[18:14] <LeoBodnar> :D
[18:14] <adamgreig> however I can't hope to modulate the rx signal without having precise timing between the two
[18:15] <adamgreig> LeoBodnar: to be fair it's 6mW transmit power going out a highly directional antenna
[18:15] <adamgreig> inside my bedroom
[18:15] <adamgreig> on 3.4GHz
[18:15] <eroomde_> so if multiple replications fall within 1 chip width, you have problems
[18:15] <eroomde_> that's why multipath becomes a problem
[18:15] <adamgreig> yea
[18:15] <eroomde_> replications? er, reflections
[18:15] <adamgreig> and with 20MHz PRN rate
[18:15] <adamgreig> each bit is like 15m
[18:15] <eroomde_> yeah
[18:15] <eroomde_> indeed
[18:16] <eroomde_> you should be able to track to sort of 0.1 chip widths easely enough with a pll
[18:16] <adamgreig> so I think for long range radar - like boats or aeroplanes - prns and straight up pulsing might be fine
[18:16] <LeoBodnar> Can you use self-correlation to remove reflections?
[18:16] <adamgreig> eroomde_: yea but my samples are 40MHz so there's only two samples per chip width
[18:16] <eroomde_> indeed
[18:16] <adamgreig> but for short range radar like this, I think I really need that sweeping
[18:16] <adamgreig> with well coordinated tx+rx
[18:16] <eroomde_> though assuming static target the dithering can increase the resolution
[18:17] <adamgreig> they share the same clock at least so once I have the metadata it should work very well
[18:17] <adamgreig> yea
[18:17] <adamgreig> in theory that's true
[18:17] <eroomde_> dithering between one sample and the next
[18:17] <adamgreig> but I'm yet to work out how to actually increase _timing_ resolution
[18:17] <eroomde_> we observe this with our kalman tracker
[18:17] <adamgreig> because you still need a way to coordinate
[18:17] <eroomde_> yeah indeed
[18:17] <eroomde_> that's tricky
[18:17] <adamgreig> and I can't like, extract a time
[18:17] <adamgreig> because I'm not seeing any clear return pulses anyway
[18:17] <adamgreig> seem to either need much higher sample rates
[18:17] <adamgreig> or
[18:17] <adamgreig> that whole coordination thing
[18:17] <adamgreig> might be other ways to cheat it for now
[18:18] <adamgreig> having prns working at all is kinda fun though

[18:28] <LeoBodnar> I really dislike separate GND island under the GPS. Really really.
[18:28] <Laurenceb_> no contact for 4hours
[18:28] <LeoBodnar> Bends?
[18:28] <Lunar_Lander> LeoBodnar, what do you recommend?
[18:29] <LeoBodnar> One ground plane for the whole board on both layers
[18:29] <LeoBodnar> And keep as much traces on the top layer as possible
[18:29] <LeoBodnar> It's disputable of course
[18:30] <Lunar_Lander> GND on both layers?
[18:31] <LeoBodnar> No island
[18:31] <Lunar_Lander> OK
[18:31] <LeoBodnar> because this little joint between the two is where all power current is going to create a drop, especially at RF
[18:31] <adamgreig> yea, unless you really know what you're doing and thus know you need it, one single continuous ground plane is almost certainly the best choice
[18:32] <Lunar_Lander> OK
[18:32] <Lunar_Lander> but I was always told to spare the GPS antenna area
[18:32] <LeoBodnar> So you have pretty much inserted an inductor into your GND line between the GPS and PSU
[18:32] <Lunar_Lander> ohhhh
[18:32] <LeoBodnar> Of course, don't do GND plane near antenna.
[18:33] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[18:33] <Lunar_Lander> and what about the extra GND for the SMA?
[18:33] <LeoBodnar> But this ground plane island under GPS itself, ask whoever suggested it what was the reasoning, then at least you know why it is there
[18:35] <LeoBodnar> All your return path currents from data lines are creating a voltage drop on GND line
[18:35] <Lunar_Lander> ok
[18:35] <craag> Seperate ground islands doesn't make much sense to me when you're battery powered. Only when you've got 2 or more potentially noisy power sources.
[18:36] <LeoBodnar> Also pour the top layer with GND polygon and stitch it to the bottom in as many places as you can. Go wild on GND vias.
[18:36] <LeoBodnar> They make sense when you have separate analog and digital sections AND separate analog and digital power supplies.
[18:37] <Lunar_Lander> OK
[18:37] <Lunar_Lander> so remove the planes I have now and fill up with GND on both sides?
[18:37] <LeoBodnar> This is my opinion of course.
[18:38] <craag> LeoBodnar: Yep, exactly.
[18:38] <LeoBodnar> I do it that way.
[18:38] <LeoBodnar> Collect opinions Lunar_Lander and form your own too :D
[18:38] <Lunar_Lander> yeah :)

[18:39] <ike> LeoBodnar if you have module like this with integrated active antenna http://www.gtop-tech.com/Templates/pic/GPS_Modules_PA6B-01.jpg you should not have any GND under dot of the antenna

[18:44] <ike> from comments: I noticed one thing, the RF ground on the venus chip does nothing but connect the ground pins together on the RF side. There is no GND for the RF GND pins on the venus part. He could try jumpering to the LNA from the venus part as there is a ground pin on the venus part right next to a grnd pin on the LNA. It won’t be a good as a proper RF ground, but it will be a ground and might get things working. (When they sa
[18:44] <ike> y don’t connect GND to RFGND it doesn’t mean total isolation. What you want to do is have the two GND planes connect in a single point (50 mils is a good starting point) . You also want the power supplying the RF components flowing in over this point on an adjacent layer.)

[18:47] <Lunar_Lander> because I am doing EPR spectroscopy I should know about microwave stuff
[18:47] <Lunar_Lander> well, to be fair I am starting
[18:47] <Lunar_Lander> and we are not really working on PCBs
[18:47] <DL1SGP> of course you are welcome to listen yourself Manos (sv1iw)
[18:47] <LeoBodnar> We are desperately looking for station in Greece.
[18:48] <sv1iw> We have already one station listening from Crete and O have alerted People in Istanbul as well and Cuprus.
[18:48] <ike> LeoBodnar you should publish your design so we can just copy mindlessly
[18:48] <DL1SGP> thank you sv1iw (Manos) that rocks!
[18:48] <LeoBodnar> Lol are you serious?
[18:48] <ibanezmatt13> does anybody know how I can get these 4 dictionaries into one thing? http://pastebin.com/2PEiUr8S
[18:48] <sv1iw> Unfortunately not everyone feels very comfortable so they need a gentle push!
[18:49] <DL1SGP> if any of such stations needs help in getting set up, please get them into this chat, we would be happy to help
[18:49] <LeoBodnar> It is just few chips stuck together on a small PCB, it's not even 4 layer.
[18:49] <Lunar_Lander> I remember the Apex Alpha balloon and how we failed to get listeners from Poland here
[18:49] <Lunar_Lander> fortunately that has changed
[18:49] <Lunar_Lander> :)
[18:49] <LeoBodnar> Here comes GENTLE PUSH!
[18:49] <Lunar_Lander> thanks LeoBodnar
[18:49] <LeoBodnar> Please :)
[18:50] <LeoBodnar> Ah, well done sv1iw !
[18:50] <sv1iw> I am thinking of making an article for our magazine at least so people here in SV will be much more confident..
[18:50] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[18:50] <Lunar_Lander> you surely know Kostas from Thessaloniki?
[18:51] <ike> LeoBodnar: or people will continue to slap arduinos to radiometrix modules
[18:51] <sv1iw> there a lot of people in thessaloniki, which one?
[18:51] <Lunar_Lander> Kostas is the guy who did the first two stratosphere balloons of Greece
[18:51] <Geoff-G8DHE-M> There is a guide for tracking on the Wiki if it helps, could do with translations of course! http://ukhas.org.uk/guides:tracking_guide

[19:54] <yo5pjb> The F16 will intercept it :P
[19:54] <GapSpark> its illegal
[19:54] <GapSpark> ?
[19:55] <LeoBodnar> This balloon carries 10mW transmitter that is classed as ISM device and is usually allowed for airborne use in all countries apart form I think Japan?
[19:55] <LeoBodnar> It's not a HAM equipment but ISM device.
[19:55] <DL1SGP> in Japan it would be OK if you added a tamagotchi to it :D
[19:55] <GapSpark> ism device, so its off the ham bands then?
[19:55] <GapSpark> DL1SGP: don't be so racist
[19:55] <mfa298> GapSpark: for aprs the balloon knows where it is so can just use aprs in the places that it's known to be legal from airborne
[19:56] <LeoBodnar> 70cm HAM band is shared with ISM on a secondary basis typically
[19:56] <DL1SGP> GapSpark: I do not see any racism in that statement, please refrain from assigning such attributes to me
[19:56] <GapSpark> DL1SGP: sterotypical statements like that are racist

[20:24] <sv1iw> DL7AD Sven Stathis SV5DKL can listen the beacon on 434.500. it was loud 5 minutes ago but is fading now, he will install lthe program but I am afraid is too late, looks like is heading for Cyprus....
[20:25] <DL7AD> sv1iw oO. do you have contact to cprus?
[20:25] <DL7AD> cyprus?
[20:25] <LeoBodnar> Can he record sound?
[20:25] <DL1SGP> Also a mic to the speaker while connected to echolink could help :)
[20:25] <Maxell> or stream it over livestream
[20:25] <LeoBodnar> Well the good thing it's still transmitting
[20:25] <PE2G> LeoBodnar: I believe so
[20:25] <GapSpark> maybe he can sing the sound so we get idea of what its like?
[20:25] <Maxell> it worked with rtty, so it must work with domex16 too :P
[20:26] <fsphil> PE2G: ah. shame
[20:26] <GapSpark> in greece and cyprus you must remember they are very poor
[20:26] <sv1iw> DL7AD I can try to alert some, if I can find their cell phones, let me give it a try....

[20:27] <fsphil> yea a recording would be great
[20:27] <fsphil> if it's a strong signal then dominoex should survive it
[20:27] <DL1SGP> So far about stereotypical statements, GapSpark...
[20:27] <DL7AD> sv1iw hm that would be great

[20:28] <DL1SGP> who me?
[20:28] <sv1iw> DL7AD the bad thing is that they are unprepared and they need to act fast...then unless the wind blows from the south chances are few to regain contact...

[20:48] <Benny_Boy> I need some help with fldigi. Anyone able to assist?

[20:49] cuddykid (~acudworth@host-78-145-106-24.as13285.net) joined #highaltitude.
[20:49] <Benny_Boy> This is my first project so I have yet to successfully receive any data over radio. I have the ntx setup and running. I've followed the instructions on this site to set everything up and I can see the transmission in SDR
[20:50] <Laurenceb_> are you using an arduino?
[20:50] <Benny_Boy> I've setup the baud rate, parity and bits per char in fldigi, but the decoded transmission is garbage. Any ideas what I could be doing wrong?
[20:50] <Benny_Boy> Pi
[20:50] Willdude123 (~William@unaffiliated/willdude123) left irc: Ping timeout: 245 seconds
[20:51] <Benny_Boy> I'm just running a simple test program to transmit a string ("Hello everybody")
[20:51] <Geoff-G8DHE> Can you do a screen shot showing the dl-fldigi window ?
[20:52] <fsphil> the usual things to check in dl-fldigi are, make sure SQL is off, Rv is off, both dl-fldigi and the radio/SDR should be in USB mode
[20:52] <fsphil> (or RTTYR in dl-fldigi -- it's the same thing as USB)
[20:52] <Benny_Boy> Ok, I'll check...
[20:52] <mfa298> What setup are you using for the Pi (using the serial port?) and what baud rate ?
[20:53] <Benny_Boy> serial port. 150 baud
[20:53] <ibanezmatt13> you need 300 baud
[20:53] number10 (519a08fc@gateway/web/freenode/ip. left irc: Quit: Page closed
[20:53] <Benny_Boy> that said my string seems to be transmitted very quickly
[20:53] Boggle (~jon@cpc1-cmbg10-0-0-cust144.5-4.cable.virginmedia.com) left irc: Remote host closed the connection
[20:53] <ibanezmatt13> well, you can try 50 baud but it can be temperamental on a Pi
[20:54] <Benny_Boy> I'll just pop off and check those points...
[20:54] <mfa298> 150 might work (although I don't think anyones used it) 50 seems to work for some but not others
[20:54] <steve_____> mattbrejza: I imagine the sync sequences should be left until after the binary encoding has been sorted out; imagine its quite straight forward to send some unused sequence and a checksum at regular intervals - I was thinking that making the data a lot more dense would suggest that missing chunks would be a lot more serious - there is no way to guarantee delivery without two way comms
[20:54] <mfa298> other thing to check is that you've disabled the various things that normally use the serial port (kernel logs and getty)
[20:55] <ibanezmatt13> Benny_Boy: Also, try hitting rv. Depending on your setup, it might be that you have to reverse it maybe
[20:55] <Benny_Boy> where is teh rv option?
[20:55] <ibanezmatt13> bottom right
[20:55] darkstar-2001 (~matt@dsl-217-155-229-6.zen.co.uk) left irc: Quit: Leaving.
[20:55] <ibanezmatt13> on the lower panel
[20:55] <mattbrejza> yea sync is considered seperate to data encoding steve_____

[20:57] <mattbrejza> well
[20:57] <mattbrejza> not when you have to trubo decode :)
[20:58] <mattbrejza> also now you have to test every bit rather than every byte
[20:58] <fsphil> does turbo codes work on streams or blocks?
[20:58] <Benny_Boy> I'm getting back Zlh_rmeO6O,4wEa%xc
[20:58] <steve_____> i was thinking relying on distributed receiving but dismissed it
[20:58] <WillTablet> Hi
[20:58] <mattbrejza> streams
[20:58] <fsphil> ah
[20:58] <fsphil> well then yes, a sync is good
[20:58] <Geoff-G8DHE> Benny_Boy, Can you post a screen shot
[20:58] <fsphil> if it's covered by the FEC
[20:58] <mattbrejza> even if it were blocks you would have to make sure your blocks wer eframed right
[20:58] <GapSpark> so seriously what balloon should I order?
[20:58] <GapSpark> good one for beginner
[20:58] <mattbrejza> by blocks do you mean 8 byte symbols or 1000 bit 'chunks'?
[20:59] <GapSpark> ?
[20:59] <mattbrejza> GapSpark: depends on payload weight
[20:59] <mfa298> GapSpark: depends on what you're flying and where you are
[20:59] <fsphil> mattbrejza: anything of fixed length
[20:59] <mattbrejza> GapSpark: http://habhub.org/calc/
[20:59] <GapSpark> some wouxing HT i suppose
[20:59] <mattbrejza> fsphil: yea its in blocks then
[20:59] <Benny_Boy> sure. How do I post it here?
[20:59] <GapSpark> send the HT up on it?
[20:59] <GapSpark> maybe solar panel
[20:59] <mfa298> GapSpark: where are you located ?
[21:00] <mikestir> mattbrejza: are you still thinking about the soft decision idea to get gain from multiple receivers?
[21:00] <Geoff-G8DHE> Post it to something like imgur is best
[21:00] <mattbrejza> mikestir: not really atm
[21:00] <mattbrejza> get it working on the reciever's box first
[21:01] <mattbrejza> tbh as it stands you could combine partials on habitat
[21:01] <mattbrejza> but normally someone gets a full decode so its not really needed
[21:01] <steve_____> I was thinking about that and also simply sending everything twice

[21:04] <Benny_Boy> I do see those. I've turned down the resolution in the SDR display because it's killing my PC doing all the graphics
[21:04] <mfa298> you have to use certain bits of the ISM band so limited to 10mW
[21:04] <GapSpark> mfa298: well
[21:05] <GapSpark> mfa298: who is going to check?
[21:05] <steve_____> did you have a look at goolg protocol buffers or apache thrift?
[21:05] <DL1SGP> Benny_Boy: what is your LO set to on the RX side of the SDR and which frequency are you transmitting on?
[21:06] <mattbrejza> not properly
[21:06] <mfa298> Benny_Boy: you should see the two lines in dl-fldigi as well.
[21:07] <mikestir> what is the interface to habitat currently? just json over http?
[21:07] <mattbrejza> yea
[21:07] <steve_____> I think there is merit in using a portable system that is already well tested
[21:07] <mikestir> seems like it would be ideally suited to MQTT
[21:07] <Benny_Boy> The ntx2 is a 434.075, but sdr is picking up the signal at 434.049.370

[21:08] <adamgreig> steve_____: mikestir: looked at a few systems
[21:08] <mikestir> then you could post any container protocol you like to your own topic, then run a translation daemon somewhere to subscribe to that and re-post using the standard habitat one
[21:08] <adamgreig> not convinced by any of thrift, protobuf or mqtt for this
[21:09] <mfa298> it shouldn't be that far off, you might not be getting the true signal. You might also need to calibrate the sdr (if it's an rtl dongle)
[21:09] <Benny_Boy> I'll do another image... hang on...
[21:09] <adamgreig> not for over the air telem
[21:09] <LeoBodnar> Just reading your doc mattbrejza Good stuff
[21:09] <adamgreig> not convinced by thrift in general actually
[21:09] <adamgreig> thrift seems awful
[21:09] <adamgreig> protobuf is nice
[21:09] <mikestir> i'm not suggesting mqtt for ota - definitely not
[21:09] <GapSpark> what happens if a balloon strays into UK airspace?
[21:09] <adamgreig> haha okay good
[21:09] <mikestir> but as a way of abstracting the habitat end a bit
[21:09] SP3OSJ (563f462a@gateway/web/freenode/ip. left irc: Quit: Page closed
[21:09] <adamgreig> for habitat internals?
[21:09] <adamgreig> yea it's an interesting option
[21:09] <adamgreig> so at the moment basically the whole architecture is couchdb
[21:09] <adamgreig> which has a REST JSON HTTP API
[21:09] <LeoBodnar> Can we use Callsign hash instead to reduce the data amount?
[21:09] <GapSpark> is that illegal also?
[21:10] <adamgreig> but we're basically planning on nuking a lot of that
[21:10] <adamgreig> because couchdb is really slow
[21:10] <adamgreig> and nosql has failed to deliver ;)
[21:10] <craag> GapSpark: If it happens accidentally, and doesn't cause interference, I doubt you'll get in much trouble.
[21:10] <adamgreig> having a message queue system coooould be an interesting option
[21:10] <adamgreig> but I'm not sure we really warrant the complexity
[21:10] <craag> Doing it purposely however, is illegal.
[21:10] <mikestir> I wrote a nosql database for time series data. openenergymonitor has just replaced their mysql stack with it
[21:10] <steve_____> I was considering protocol buffers or thrift for serialising and sending telemetry and other data
[21:10] <mikestir> they've got huge speed ups
[21:11] <fsphil> doing it accidently is illegal too :)
[21:11] <craag> fsphil: Of course!
[21:11] <Benny_Boy> http://i.imgur.com/CjTcCjh.jpg
[21:11] <adamgreig> mikestir: what db?
[21:11] <mfa298> GapSpark: however having asked such questions in a public forum you wouldn't be doing it accidentally - if that's what you're thinking
[21:11] <GapSpark> craag: but its against the law?
[21:11] <craag> GapSpark: Yep.
[21:11] <mikestir> it's called timestore. it's still quite early days but it works
[21:11] <ike> mattbrejza Binary protocol is verry cool idea, I wonder can it be done with user defined fields? Like firt 4 bytes as ASCII next 4 bytes as uint32_t, next 4 bytes as float and so on
[21:11] <mattbrejza> steve_____: surely with google protocol buffer the tx needs to tell the rx the format before they can exchange data?
[21:11] <adamgreig> I'm being a little bit snarky when I say nosql failed to deliver here
[21:11] <mikestir> it basically just stores floats in an unindexed flat file
[21:12] <adamgreig> lol
[21:12] <adamgreig> definitely sounds like nosql
[21:12] <GapSpark> if i accidentally got drunk and drove a car because i was drunk it would be okay also?
[21:12] <ike> mattbrejza some gps recivers dump bin data
[21:12] <GapSpark> as it was accident to get drunk
[21:12] <mattbrejza> ike: you read my page?
[21:12] <mikestir> so you can seek trivially to a given time
[21:12] <mikestir> but it also does downsampling
[21:12] <mikestir> it's like rrdtool but doesn't destroy old data
[21:12] <adamgreig> neat
[21:13] <mikestir> I don't think it would work for hab data though, because although that's time series it doesn't really get queried in the same way
[21:13] <mattbrejza> the idea is to be able to get data from teh string without needing to know knowledge about it from say habitat (althoigh what sensor data actually relates to will need habitat)
[21:13] <steve_____> I must have missed that mattbrejza - let me check again - I was just thinking why write a custom binary encoding scheme when one surely exists
[21:13] <mikestir> it's designed for sensor data
[21:13] <craag> GapSpark: I'm saying that there have been APRS balloons that have strayed into non-legal-airborne airspace.
[21:13] <adamgreig> steve_____: I agree - can you think of any good ones?
[21:13] <adamgreig> would love to be able to use an extant protocol if there is a suitable one
[21:13] <adamgreig> but I couldn't locate anything obviously good
[21:13] <Geoff-G8DHE> Benny_Boy, Your shift seems to be more like 5KHz not 425Hz
[21:13] <adamgreig> the great thing about binary protocols is they're so easy to write your own! ;)
[21:14] <GapSpark> craag was interpol involved?
[21:14] <mattbrejza> can always nick googles method of encoding different data fields though
[21:14] <steve_____> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_data_serialization_formats
[21:14] <mikestir> bson?
[21:14] <adamgreig> yes, I know there are many huge lists
[21:14] <adamgreig> can you actually suggest any?
[21:14] <mattbrejza> to use an existing protocol it will have to match our requirements quite well
[21:14] <adamgreig> mikestir: I'd say msgpack over bson
[21:14] <adamgreig> but neither is appropriate really
[21:14] <GapSpark> Geoff-G8DHE: if we can the opinion of a class B, we'll tap it out in morse code!
[21:14] <adamgreig> we don't need that much flexibility
[21:14] <steve_____> not that I have used successful no
[21:15] <GapSpark> can=want
[21:15] <Geoff-G8DHE> Tell a lie you have a very narrow window, yes its in 400-500Hz range
[21:15] <mikestir> I've actually thought about this problem in the context of wireless sensor networks
[21:15] <steve_____> I was thinking googles looked good
[21:15] WillTablet (~androirc@unaffiliated/willdude123) joined #highaltitude.
[21:15] <adamgreig> protobuf?
[21:15] <mikestir> there's a need for a protocol that can convey essentially name/value pairs, with units, but without resorting to just sending it in ascii
[21:15] <steve_____> but I missed the two way coms
[21:15] <craag> GapSpark: Not in those cases. But I dread to think what would happen if one started actually causing interference to safety-of-life systems.
[21:15] <LeoBodnar> mattbrejza: if we design protocol to be nice to occasional rogue user at a disadvantage to all those who need tight efficient data stream we are back to square one :)
[21:15] <WillTablet> Hi craag
[21:15] <craag> Evening WillTablet
[21:15] <fsphil> have a seriously simple protocol. just an array of variable-length values
[21:16] S_Mark (~S_Mark@host86-139-98-27.range86-139.btcentralplus.com) joined #highaltitude.
[21:16] <adamgreig> fsphil: like msgpack or bson?
[21:16] <Benny_Boy> How did my shift end up being 5khz?
[21:16] <fsphil> have the first 5 pre-defined (callsign, time, lat, long, altitude)
[21:16] <mikestir> fsphil: but how do you handle introspection?
[21:16] <mikestir> you need some kind of agreed record type
[21:16] <WillTablet> craag how are you?
[21:16] <GapSpark> craag: like txing from balloon on 121.5?
[21:16] <fsphil> adamgreig: will have to read up on those
[21:16] <Geoff-G8DHE> No its not I wasn't expecting such a narrow sdr# window it is in the order of 400-500Hz
[21:17] <fsphil> mikestir: introspection?
[21:17] <GapSpark> http://www.g8dhe.com/ <<
[21:17] <mikestir> to enable the receiver to decode to actual meaningful data without prior knowledge of the packet structure
[21:17] <GapSpark> this wife looks very much like him
[21:17] <mattbrejza> it seems that gps is reasonably trival, its just how to handle sensors. Do we just convey a series of values at certain times, (this is what we do already), or try to send over what the sensor is and how to scale it etc (which seems like it will take too much BW)
[21:17] <GapSpark> his sister perhaps?
[21:18] <craag> GapSpark: Yeah, that would not be good. I visited Ofcom at Baldock and they showed us data from a pirate FM station the day before that had a harmonic on the heathrow landing freq, took them 18 minutes from it switching on to the cops breaking down the door and putting a boot through the transmitter.
[21:18] <mattbrejza> meaningful data just means 4,6,8,7,5,8,11,10 rather than knowning what those numbers mean
[21:18] <fsphil> adamgreig: similar, only without the field names and the values are not strings
[21:18] <mfa298> Benny_Boy: that transmission looks quite short for a reasonably long string. if might be worth uploading a bit of the audio if you can (dropbox can work well if you have an account)
[21:18] <adamgreig> fsphil: is that bson?
[21:18] <mattbrejza> (except gps)
[21:18] <adamgreig> msgpack has non-string values
[21:18] <fsphil> adamgreig: only read about msgpack first
[21:18] <GapSpark> craag BS
[21:18] <adamgreig> oh
[21:18] <sv1iw> DL7AD Sven 5B and OD5 hams alerted, Let;s hope for the best...
[21:19] <fsphil> ooh I need to read more
[21:19] <adamgreig> msgpack supports a whole range of binary value types
[21:19] <adamgreig> we could extend the type id bit to cover some specific ones - gps coordinates primarily
[21:19] <GapSpark> ofcom could not find their way out of a wet paper bag
[21:19] <mattbrejza> although i guess you could define a message that you could send every now and then that defines feild meanings, but that runs into the 'will every rx implement issue'
[21:19] <fsphil> it would be nice to use an existing standard
[21:19] <mikestir> adamgreig: http://www.mike-stirling.com/redmine/projects/timestore in case you didn't find it. I don't think it's high up on google
[21:19] <fsphil> mattbrejza: nah, leave that for the payload doc
[21:19] <mattbrejza> thats what i would have said
[21:19] <Benny_Boy> I though it was very short. I've checked the code and it all seems fine. I'm using the wiringPi library
[21:19] <craag> GapSpark: When something happens like that in london, they have about 20 GPS time-of-flight ranging station that give a heatmap of the estimated source.
[21:20] <WillTablet> craag was that on ILS or ATC?
[21:20] <fsphil> I'll read up on those formats a bit more
[21:20] <mattbrejza> if you dont have internet and cant find out that a value means temperature, than o well
[21:20] <adamgreig> fsphil: I'd ignore bson
[21:20] <WillTablet> And how did you get to go to ofcom?
[21:20] <adamgreig> read up on msgpack
[21:20] <craag> WillTablet: Can't remember the details
[21:20] <fsphil> will do
[21:20] <adamgreig> mattbrejza: we could have a format ID that is "integer degrees C"
[21:20] <WillTablet> Oh OK.
[21:20] <adamgreig> and then for 80% of sensor use cases
[21:20] <Geoff-G8DHE> Have you tried reading the data on a serial port from the Pi to check format and baud rate ?
[21:20] <adamgreig> receivers could work it out themselves
[21:20] <steve_____> msgpack looks good
[21:20] <adamgreig> msgpack is wonderful
[21:20] <craag> WillTablet: I went along for an interview to do Spectrum Monitoring for the Olympics.
[21:21] <adamgreig> but I worry it's a bit verbose _still_ for what we want
[21:21] <adamgreig> and we'd definitely want to add our own data formats on for our common use cases
[21:21] <adamgreig> so we could extend - just use some of the reversed format types
[21:21] <adamgreig> or we could replace - just use the same structure but with our own data formats
[21:21] <WillTablet> craag Did you get the job?
[21:21] <adamgreig> but it's certainly not a bad source of inspiration
[21:21] <DL7AD> wv1iw rgr
[21:21] <craag> WillTablet: But in the intro presentation they said they wanted someone with at least 10 years experience in the industry, at which point everyone looked at me and laughed.
[21:22] <WillTablet> Heh
[21:22] <mattbrejza> although the msgpack method assumes we will want to know the names of the sensor fields
[21:22] <mattbrejza> ?
[21:22] <craag> Did the day anyway, played with some very cool kit.
[21:22] <DL7AD> sv1iw do they know how to install and configure the program?
[21:22] <adamgreig> mattbrejza: yea. that's why I think it's too verbose
[21:22] <steve_____> one issue I thought about is that if the data structures were large then missing even a bit could be a big problem
[21:22] <adamgreig> steve_____: this is another problem
[21:22] <adamgreig> a legit one, but
[21:22] <adamgreig> we're working out a source encoding
[21:23] <adamgreig> your actual modulation scheme or error coding wants to deal with that issue
[21:23] <adamgreig> this is a binary replacement for $$HELLO,1234*ABCD
[21:23] <adamgreig> not for RTTY
[21:23] <fsphil> I think msgpack is too much. my idea doesn't even have types :)
[21:23] <craag> WillTablet: Well, mostly cool, apart from the spectrum analyzer that ran Win XP Embedded.
[21:23] <steve_____> send twice or distributed receivers?
[21:23] <DL7AD> sv1iw to avoid wasting time
[21:23] <adamgreig> fsphil: given as the types are combined with field length
[21:23] <adamgreig> I think it's a ncie idea
[21:23] <sv1iw> DL7AD all information has been sent and links for the software, installation tutorial and tracking site
[21:23] <adamgreig> it means any receiver can at least display the data
[21:23] <mfa298> Benny_Boy I'm not sure that you need to use the wiringpi library if you're using the serial port.
[21:23] <DL7AD> sv1iw okay
[21:23] <adamgreig> there's no reason to say "here are two bytes of data" compared to "here's a two byte integer"
[21:24] <adamgreig> in any case you just need one byte for field type+length
[21:24] <adamgreig> in the msgpack fashion
[21:24] <fsphil> they'd need to understand the content of the data to display it in a useful way
[21:24] <adamgreig> and if you want a varilength string, that's fine too
[21:24] <mikestir> suppose there's no need to send the field info every time
[21:24] <sv1iw> DL7AD it will need some effort on their side but that is the way ot goes...
[21:24] <adamgreig> fsphil: yes - but we can do that too
[21:24] <adamgreig> "here's a two byte integer temperature"

[21:24] <mattbrejza> the issue is if you have a 16bit int, do you have to do some funky scaling to get a value in mB (as an example)
[21:24] <mikestir> could send packed data most of the time, then periodically send field types as metadata
[21:24] <mfa298> Benny_Boy: If you're trying to use the arduino approach of turning a pin on and off you are likely to have some timing issues - it's possible to bitbang on the pi but I'm not sure you can do it with wiring pi
[21:24] <adamgreig> for 80% maybe of our use cases, we could fit everything in one byte
[21:24] <Benny_Boy> mfa298: It is just a wrapper I admit, but it made life a little easier as I learnt
[21:24] <adamgreig> for the rest, "here's variable length data, the next byte is the length"
[21:24] <adamgreig> we have _very_ few true variable length fields
[21:25] <adamgreig> steve_____: please don't send twice ;)
[21:25] <adamgreig> repetition error codes are the worst error codes
[21:25] <adamgreig> well, from an info theoretic point of view
[21:25] <adamgreig> obviously the simplest too!
[21:25] <adamgreig> we already have multiple receivers
[21:25] <craag> As was explained at the conf..
[21:25] <mattbrejza> so should each packet be decodable by itself, (even if it means that we might not know the name of a sensor)
[21:25] <adamgreig> and you benefit a _lot_ from short messages
[21:25] <adamgreig> our channel is not gaussian noise
[21:25] <LeoBodnar> Can payload transmit field structure from time to time and the server will keep it then receivers can retrieve it from the server?
[21:26] <adamgreig> so the shorter your message is, the more likely you'll get it all through without interference
[21:26] <adamgreig> vs a long slow rtty message which is hundreds of bits and any one going wrong breaks it
[21:26] <LeoBodnar> When inited initially
[21:26] Sven1987h (2e732c46@gateway/web/freenode/ip. joined #highaltitude.
[21:26] <mattbrejza> adamgreig: true for uncoded
[21:26] <adamgreig> LeoBodnar: yes, we could do that. but for the amount of data we have...
[21:26] <adamgreig> mattbrejza: yes I'm talking about uncoded
[21:26] <mattbrejza> ah
[21:26] <adamgreig> we're designing a binary protocol to replace the ukhas telem strings
[21:26] <adamgreig> not talking about an error code or modulation schema at the moment
[21:26] <adamgreig> well we have started talking about that
[21:26] <adamgreig> which is a problem really
[21:26] <adamgreig> I mean throwing ideas around is ok
[21:26] <mattbrejza> well modulation is seperate
[21:27] <adamgreig> but you need to focus on what we're actually trying to accomplish
[21:27] <mfa298> Benny_Boy: I think most people that have used the pi just open the serial port and send data to it.
[21:27] <LeoBodnar> It's better to separate modulation scheme from binary contents
[21:27] <adamgreig> modulation might not be separate from error coding, depending on what error coding we use
[21:27] <steve_____> I think a binary code requires thought to the transmission
[21:27] <SpeedEvil> you need a packet specifying the mission theme song.
[21:27] <adamgreig> steve_____: definitely requires _some_ thought
[21:27] <adamgreig> SpeedEvil: that's already on the requirements list, of course
[21:27] <LeoBodnar> However if legacy formats remain it can be done
[21:27] <Benny_Boy> Ok. I'll give that a go. Gotta go now, but thanks for teh help and advise. I'll be back if I'm still stuck
[21:27] <Benny_Boy> Ta muchly! :)
[21:27] <mattbrejza> well you could TCM i suppose, normalyl used with PSK/QAM though

[21:28] <steve_____> The way strings are sent at the moment is nice
[21:28] <steve_____> if you miss one who cares the next is on the way in a couple of seconds
[21:29] <adamgreig> right
[21:29] <adamgreig> with these binary packets
[21:29] <adamgreig> you could fit three or four in a second
[21:29] <adamgreig> it's even quicker
[21:29] <steve_____> if you miss part of the image it doesn't matter
[21:29] <adamgreig> so if you miss one, it's still no biggie
[21:29] <adamgreig> and someone else probably got it anyway
[21:29] <adamgreig> shorter packets are only going to help matters when we don't have error correction
[21:29] <adamgreig> well, they're only going to help ever
[21:29] <steve_____> true
[21:29] <fsphil> we'd also gain a way of encoding the last x positions in one data unit
[21:29] <adamgreig> our current system has a huge, incredible amount of redundant info
[21:30] <adamgreig> we could make a binary protocol that transmitted field names and values in binary and probably use less bits per sentence than currently
[21:30] <mattbrejza> im going for longer packets becsyse as you might guess i intend to use error correction
[21:30] <adamgreig> putting multiple positions in one pdu is fun
[21:30] <steve_____> I think its needed if we start thinking of deltas
[21:30] <adamgreig> I had a great chance to play with a lot of stupid ways of doing this commercially
[21:30] <adamgreig> I've seen some _terrible_ protocols for lat/lng deltas
[21:31] <adamgreig> oh my god
[21:31] <adamgreig> I was crying for days
[21:31] <mattbrejza> well most of my initial brain dump was how to handle deltas

[21:31] daveake (~daveake@ joined #highaltitude.
[21:31] <fsphil> the variable length thing would be good for deltas. using very little data for values that don't change much
[21:32] <adamgreig> yea
[21:32] <adamgreig> but if you're going to transmit sequential deltas you need to be incredibly sure you don't miss anything or you can't reconstruct any positions past the error
[21:33] <adamgreig> which means you absolutely need solid ecc and checksums
[21:33] <steve_____> I imagine that the full message would have to be sent every so often though as deltas would imply 0 tolerance for corruption
[21:33] <adamgreig> whereas with transmitting whole positions - or deltas from one original position - errors in one delta don't matter
[21:33] <fsphil> oh I wouldn't transmit deltas without a reference in the same packet
[21:33] <steve_____> ^^
[21:33] <fsphil> always start with an absolute
[21:33] <adamgreig> fsphil: sure but even inside the same packet
[21:33] <adamgreig> you start with an absolute
[21:33] <adamgreig> but if you then transmit 20 deltas
[21:33] <adamgreig> and each one is a delta from the previous delta
[21:33] <adamgreig> then any one corruption loses it all
[21:33] <adamgreig> whereas if each one is a delta from the original complete position, that's less of a cocnern
[21:33] <fsphil> I'm not condisering errors at this level
[21:33] <adamgreig> but obviously you then have worse compression
[21:33] <fsphil> considering*

[21:34] <steve_____> if habitat was used that would not be an issue
[21:34] <fsphil> if the packet doesn't pass the CRC test then it's all bad :)
[21:34] <mattbrejza> well a checksum will protect errors in a delta
[21:34] <adamgreig> it will detect
[21:34] <steve_____> but for individual decoders it would be a problem
[21:34] <adamgreig> which isn't quite the same thing
[21:34] <adamgreig> I also question how much deltas is seriously useful
[21:34] <adamgreig> depends what you're doing
[21:34] <adamgreig> for long duration drifters, yes, sure
[21:34] <adamgreig> for anything else?
[21:35] <adamgreig> in the fields I was doing deltas commercially we were sending hours of 1s data over a GSM modem
[21:35] <adamgreig> so you got a data dump every day or something, and every byte cost
[21:35] <steve_____> matt was suggesting more room for image data
[21:35] <adamgreig> but we're transmitting the whole time we are in the air and don't need 1s data anyway
[21:35] <fsphil> good for ocean floaters :)
[21:35] <steve_____> whats with ocean floaters
[21:35] <adamgreig> true, fantastic for ocean floaters for exactly the same reason
[21:35] <mattbrejza> i was going for lots of updates as one of the cases
[21:35] <adamgreig> you pay a lot for each byte and only transmit very infrequently
[21:36] <steve_____> I missed james joke
