[11:46] <PE2G> Some delay due to ozone detector interface problems, launch should have happened at 11:30 UTC
[11:47] <mfa298> if someone did some open source software for the met balloons it would probably be easy to put the data into habitat, although at that point we probably would want to be able to seperate out HAB/Testing/Met on snus
[11:48] <PE2G> It took Bev from COAA more than a year to crack the Vaisala telemetry
[11:49] <craag> I thought it was 9600 MFSK?
[11:49] <craag> sorry MSK
[11:49] <malgar> does somebody of you use SDR on linux?
[11:49] <craag> malgar: a bit
[11:50] <malgar> I tried sdrsharp using mono but it seems that an intel i3 isn't enough
[11:50] <mfa298> I'd guess some of the issue is cracking what data they send back into something useful.
[11:50] <PE0SAT> malgar: Yes
[11:50] <malgar> what do you use?
[11:50] <craag> yeah that's not recommended, use gqrx
[11:50] <PE0SAT> malgar: Take a look at gqrx

[11:53] <mfa298> depending on which version of fedora you've got I've made some rpms for gnu-radio and dl-fldigi - I just need to find out how to do some of the other bits

[11:55] <malgar> ok.. let me know, thank you
[11:55] <craag> PE2G: Ah cool. Would be interesting to give demodulating it a go.
[11:55] <mfa298> so far I've only done fc18 as that's what I use but I should be able to create some fc19 rpms
[11:56] <PE2G> Ozone sonde is up
[11:56] <malgar> gnu-radio, dl-fldigi and even gqrx?
[11:56] <mfa298> I've not looked at gqrx yet so I'm not sure what bits are needed - but I think you may need a recent gnuradio
[11:56] <malgar> ok
[11:56] <craag> PE2G: Do you have any good audio recordings of the signal (decent snr)?
[11:57] <mfa298> I should be able to do dl-fldigi and gnuradio 3.7 easily - I need to look at the gqrx and sdr bits - I've not got that far yet and it's been on the bottom of my todo list as it's been easier to boot windows.

[12:04] <malgar> is possible to decode readable data from those sondes?
[12:04] <malgar> mfa298: ok

[12:07] <PE0SAT> Use the following script to build gnuradio http://www.sbrac.org/files/build-gnuradio and afterwards compile gqrx
[12:08] <PE0SAT> gqrx needs a couple of dependencies with the qt suite
[12:09] <PE0SAT> This script works on Fedora and Ubuntu/Debian
[12:10] <mfa298> I've got a spec file for fedora and gnuradio 3.7 which makes life really easy to compile that

[12:11] <mfa298> the spec file does as well and means I don't have to put a compiler on every machine I want to test it on.

[12:12] <fsphil> malgar: not around properly atm, but I do have some rpms for fedora
[12:12] <fsphil> however I've been having a *lot* of trouble decoding anything with gqrx at the moment
[12:12] <fsphil> there may be issues
[12:12] <mfa298> the spec file is the set of compile instructions to create a package file so you can easily install and check dependancies

[13:01] <mfa298> last time I tried installing NT4 I hit the great catch22 of needing a newer browser to get sp6 and needed sp6 to get a newer browser
[13:01] <Hix> based on other arduino board prices I'm guessing no way near
[13:01] <daveake> At least Win95 didn't think that every single serial device on the planet is actually a Microsoft Serial Ballpoint Mouse
[13:01] <fsphil> haha
[13:02] <Hix> thats not annoying daveake its endearing
[13:02] Action: Hix scuttles off
[13:02] <fsphil> it's a feature
[13:02] <daveake> Not when it does it at random times
[13:02] <mfa298> will be interesting to see what hardware you've got access to (how many uart's does it have)
[13:02] <daveake> Like the day after I leave site
[13:02] <Ugi> I tried an Adafruit GPS & windows thought that was a mouse. Madness
[13:02] <Hix> what was the method for permanently killing that
[13:03] <gonzo___> it probably points somewhere
[13:03] <Hix> there was one but i lost the link
[13:03] <fsphil> it has two uarts I think
[13:03] <gonzo___> a mouse going at 8-0mph on the M1 ?
[13:03] <SpeedEvil> Ugi: Well - to be fair - it is a location sensing device - much like a mouse.
[13:03] <SpeedEvil> Do you jump up and down to doubleclick?
[13:03] <fsphil> the datasheet seems to suggest one is 3.3v ttl, the other is RS232 voltages
[13:03] <Hix> drive to the start button
[13:03] <fsphil> https://communities.intel.com/docs/DOC-21831
[13:04] <eroomde> usually this mous bollocks is because most people have decided to use the HID (human interface device) class drivers
[13:04] <fsphil> "3.5mm jack" .. oh dear
[13:04] <eroomde> it's sort of the least bad fit of all the usb modes
[13:04] <eroomde> for a lot of these devices
[13:04] <Ugi> There was an article on EMSL where someone had controlled their painting 'bot using a car - not GPS I don't think - maybe that's the way forward for human/computer interaction
[13:04] <eroomde> USB is a bit of a pig though
[13:05] <daveake> No, it's Windows just seeing something on COM1 that passes its test* for whether it's a mouse or not

[13:05] <daveake> * The word test is pushing it a bit
[13:05] Penfold (~mike@ joined #highaltitude.
[13:05] <fsphil> it does it for USB serial devices too
[13:05] <Hix> so it's only on COM1?
[13:05] <daveake> indeed
[13:05] <fsphil> we had a USB card reader detected as a mouse
[13:05] <daveake> No not only com1
[13:06] <Hix> didn't think I'd had iton COM1
[13:06] <Hix> it on
[13:06] <fsphil> it made the mouse move randomly every 10 seconds or so
[13:06] <PE2G> Ozone sonde had a burst below 25 km. Not good.
[13:06] <fsphil> maybe they used a Pawan?
[13:06] <daveake> I've used various FTDI and other USB-RS232 converters, and if the device you connect that to sends stuff without being requested (e.g. it's a GPS or a weighing platform) then you've got arandom chance of Windows installing a mouse driver and locking out that port
[13:07] <fsphil> and it's a massive pain convincing it otherwise
[13:07] <daveake> right-click the "mouse" and disable
[13:07] <Ugi> eroomde - as GPS wiz, do you have any idea why I might have been getting a report that the GPS was not locked on my flight, even though it had 12+ sat's and was finding position fine?
[13:07] <daveake> assuming you still have control over the real mouse :p
[13:07] <fsphil> sorta :)
[13:08] <fsphil> it was like a drunk simulator
[13:08] <fsphil> it would give you a short window and then as soon as you tried clicking something, the mouse was elsewhere
[13:08] <daveake> hah
[13:08] <fsphil> had to remove the card reader
[13:09] <daveake> you can unlpug the serial device at that point
[13:09] <daveake> there you go :)
[13:09] <fsphil> I don't remember it being as easy as disabling the mouse
[13:09] <eroomde> Ugi, nope! what is the reporting logic?
[13:09] <eroomde> and which gps did you use?
[13:09] <Ugi> well, I think that may be it - it was a UBLOX max 6 on one of UPU's breakouts, but I was using the flag reported from tinyGPS
[13:09] <daveake> fsphil It's always been that way for me, when Windows thinks a weighing platform is a mouse
[13:10] <daveake> Problem is it's random when it first makes the mistake. Sometimes it only happens after I leave site :/
[13:10] Action: daveake has an idea
[13:10] <Ugi> The thing is it usually worked fine. Only saw that once in testing.
[13:10] <daveake> Buy a real serial mouse
[13:10] <eroomde> i've no idea about tinyGPS I'm afriad
[13:10] <eroomde> never touched it
[13:10] <fsphil> you can't buy new serial mice anymore
[13:11] <daveake> An old one will do
[13:11] <daveake> I've probably thrown one out
[13:11] <fsphil> yea. we had to hit ebay to replace an old one
[13:11] <fsphil> one of those old PCs that's embedded into a machine
[13:11] <PE2G> Descending with 26 m/s at 16 km. Parachute bad as well...
[13:11] <daveake> I'll go looking in the garage. I may be some time
[13:11] <fsphil> 386 or something, no usb ports
[13:11] <Ugi> yes, I should probably have written a parser myself but it seemed to work fine and I think lots of people have used it without reporting this issue.
[13:11] <daveake> If I find one I'll repackage the electronics :)
[13:12] <mfa298> I'm useless at throwing stuff out I think I still have a 3 button serial mouse - as well as several ps/2 mice
[13:12] <Ugi> So I wondered whether it was a known issue or a GPS setting or something I was obviously missing
[13:12] <fsphil> I'm tempted to make a PS/2 > Serial interface :)
[13:12] <fsphil> should be simple enough
[13:12] <fsphil> probably a waste of time though
[13:12] <mfa298> I think you used to get them as adapters with early ps/2 mice
[13:13] <mfa298> probably needs a suitable mouse with the right electronics inside though.
[13:13] <fsphil> yea,
[13:13] <fsphil> the ps/2 + usb mice where the same
[13:13] <daveake> Yeah, that's probably just an electrical adapter, with the mouse figuring out what it's plugged into

[18:37] <ibanezmatt13> I'm looking at buying the micro SD socket for my board but I can't tell which one to get. The design link in Eagle shows several types and I'm not sure which will fit the design on my board. Pictures, .sch and .brd here is anyone can help: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/yy52dbc8vxv6h7y/XsaLUKMEB3
[18:37] <ibanezmatt13> if*
[18:38] <ibanezmatt13> wait a minute, is that SD card the wrong way round? :/
[18:39] <mikestir> i've not looked, but I guess you will get top and bottom mount ones like you do with micro usb connectors
[18:39] <ibanezmatt13> not quite sure what you mean
[18:39] <ibanezmatt13> https://www.dropbox.com/sh/yy52dbc8vxv6h7y/T12XnC_UB0/Pictures#lh:null-NORB_v3_Top.png
[18:41] <ibanezmatt13> on the board, the 8 pads aren't perfectly aligned, and some of these sockets have aligned pins so I'm quite confused
[18:43] <mikestir> where did you get the part from?
[18:43] <mikestir> in eagle
[18:43] <mikestir> for something as manufacturer specific as an sd card socket I'd highly recommend picking one and building the part yourself from the drawings in the datasheet

[18:44] <ibanezmatt13> yea, I'll try and find out, one sec
[18:45] <ibanezmatt13> ah mikestir, it's in the adafruit library
[18:45] <mikestir> yeah I noticed
[18:46] <mikestir> it looks like the one on their breakout board, if you can find out what that is
[18:46] <ibanezmatt13> ok, will take a look

[18:48] <mikestir> you might be better off finding one that has the pins at the edge
[18:48] <mikestir> would be easier to hand solder
[18:48] <ibanezmatt13> yes, should have thought of that before sending them off
[18:48] <ibanezmatt13> :/
[18:49] <Lunar_Lander> like this? http://de.farnell.com/molex/502774-0891/buchse-microsd-push-push-1-8mm/dp/2064063
[18:50] <ibanezmatt13> yep, that's what I'm looking for. I just need to find one that will definitely fit. I think I just found something
[18:51] <Lunar_Lander> ah
[18:51] <Lunar_Lander> because there is a library for Molex on the CadSoft website
[18:52] <ibanezmatt13> ah, wish I knew that earlier
[18:52] <ibanezmatt13> Thankfully, I've just located the actual model name of the correct card and it turns out it's easy to solder :)
[18:52] <Lunar_Lander> good
[18:52] <Lunar_Lander> :)
[18:53] <ibanezmatt13> "For the 3M # 2908-05WB-MG and/or 4UCON #19656 push-push type"
[18:53] <mikestir> could be farnell 166-2755
[18:53] <mikestir> looks right - haven't checked the dimensions
[18:53] <ibanezmatt13> 3M or 4UCON... hmm
[18:54] <mikestir> hold on that part number is wrong
[18:54] <mikestir> 182-9768

[18:55] <ibanezmatt13> that looks like the one
[18:58] <mikestir> yeah, again I haven't checked thoroughly, but if you compare the cad drawings that multicomp one from farnell seems to be a clone
[18:58] <mikestir> so you could use that if you can't find the real deal
[18:58] <ibanezmatt13> true, thanks for the info. I might just get both
[19:00] <Lunar_Lander> how comes they are so variable btw?
[19:00] <Lunar_Lander> aren't microSDs standardized?
[19:00] <adamgreig> the PCB footprints aren't
[19:00] <Lunar_Lander> oh
[19:03] <ibanezmatt13> apparently, Farnell no longer stock the 3M micro sd
[19:05] <ibanezmatt13> found it on rs
[19:08] <ibanezmatt13> So the sd sockets come to around £6 but postage is £5.13. Hmm
[19:09] <fsphil> typical RS
[19:11] <ibanezmatt13> when a company name is required, does that mean I'm not allowed to buy

[22:17] <mikestir> for anyone interested in the merits of the 869 MHz tracker we flew yesterday, it was really good for DFing on the ground

[22:18] <mikestir> I had a little 5 ele yagi which is really nice and portable on that band

[22:18] <fsphil> I forgot to setup my 869mhz receiver
[22:18] <mikestir> seems it worked fairly well
[22:18] <mikestir> a few people had a go at it
[22:19] <fsphil> 5mw yea?
[22:19] <mikestir> something like that
[22:19] <mikestir> ERP
[22:19] <mikestir> I was aiming for the legal max
[22:20] <mikestir> the tx output was more like 7dBm but the antenna was bent over at the top

[22:23] <Lunar_Lander> XD
[22:23] <mikestir> although actually 7dBm is basically 5mW isn't it, so yes, 5mW!
[22:23] <Geoff-G8DHE> Strange ah I see Leo gone!
[22:23] <fsphil> I've a 400mw 869mhz module, but to keep it legal it's limited to 10% duty
[22:24] <mikestir> yes I think that's the sub-band below the bit I was operating in
[22:24] <mikestir> 500mW for 10%
[22:24] <Geoff-G8DHE> Is the duty payable on every border it crosses ?
[22:26] <fsphil> only if they catch you
[22:26] <Laurenceb_> LeoBodnar: did you look at the weather in Germany when B-14 popped?
[22:26] <Geoff-G8DHE> Right B-15 set up for the morning, save me dashing about too much!
[22:26] <Laurenceb_> any thunderstorms or anything?
[22:26] <Laurenceb_> hah so many B-x balloons

[22:42] <Laurenceb_> Irregular shaped vias tend to knock the electrons around and bang them up a bit. This will produce an edgier, rougher sound.
