[07:30] <x-f> what radio do you use?
[07:30] <fsphil> there is a center spike, that is similar to a silent FM station -- assuming you're in FM mode in gqrx

[07:31] <Joel_re> fsphil: I am looking at that

[07:31] <fsphil> you'd record the monitor of the sound card gqrx is outputting to

[07:31] <Joel_re> It says capture from Built in audio
[07:32] <fsphil> you need monitor of build-in audio then
[07:32] <Joel_re> the waterfall in fl-digi goes away when I tune to that center frequency in gqrx

[10:21] skoushik (~skoushik@ left irc: Ping timeout: 260 seconds
[10:21] <craag> I'm reckoning it's probably interpolated from the NOAA worldwide stuff, which tends to be pretty good on general altitude, just hasn't got the resolution for smaller features.
[10:22] <craag> Not sure what having the altitude in the Launch Site Doc gives you anyway
[10:22] <craag> Apart from pointing habrotate correctly :P

[10:39] <SpeedEvil> SRTM is probably the best free one

[11:10] <[2]Geoff-G8DHE-M> Hopefully nothing Tx close to 70cms from those masts!
[11:10] <Steve_G0TDJ> Yeah!

[11:20] <ibanezmatt13> If I just paste it onto the page it'll look naf
[11:20] <adamgreig> try editing the source on that page to see how it's done ibanezmatt13
[11:20] <mfa298> that might depend on how the cms software works, it might have some markup for code (which is what the ukhas wiki does)
[11:20] <ibanezmatt13> ok
[11:20] <adamgreig> oh, for your own page?
[11:20] <adamgreig> the stuff on ukhas.org.uk is just for that wiki software, for simple cms you'll probably want a syntax highlighting plugin or it might come with it
[11:21] <ibanezmatt13> yeah
[11:21] <adamgreig> else just use <pre> tags in html to at least make it look like code
[11:21] <craag> mfa298: It is :). Three internet looks like it might be ok at the site too.
[11:21] <ibanezmatt13> <pre> code goes here </pre> ?
[11:21] <mfa298> wow, a launch site with good internet! shame it's such a trek
[11:22] <craag> mfa298: Still probably better internet/trek than the SHARP site!
[11:22] <craag> *internet-per-trek
[11:23] <mfa298> <pre> in html is for pre-formatted text, so the code should look good - but you probably won't get syntax highlighting

[12:56] <jonsowman> yes indeed
[12:56] <adamgreig> right, got matplotlib and ipython notebook all latest versions. maybe that means I'm ready to work
[12:56] <adamgreig> shame I still have to read about a million papers before I have a clue what's going on
[12:57] <eroomde> that's the story for the next year in't it?
[12:57] <eroomde> got a workflow all sorted?
[12:57] <adamgreig> well there are only like four or five papers in this entire topic
[12:57] <adamgreig> "workflow"
[12:57] <adamgreig> I wish. any suggestions? :P
[12:57] <eroomde> write a blog post on your workflow
[12:57] <adamgreig> I have a daily schedule all sorted. but it doesn't feature any time spent working
[12:58] <eroomde> notebook is going to be so nice

[12:58] <jonsowman> get coffee -> have nap -> read reddit -> do half an hour of work and head home
[12:58] <eroomde> you can have tex and code all together
[12:58] <adamgreig> and avoid all the matlab ever
[12:58] <eroomde> gonna make it so much easier to pull it all together in papaers anda thesis
[12:58] <adamgreig> I hope so!

[12:58] <adamgreig> it's not like there exist any matlab libs for it yet

[14:00] <adamgreig> FreeCAD / qcad is super great

[14:00] <adamgreig> blender is... very hard to learn
[14:00] <adamgreig> it can do amazing things
[14:00] <adamgreig> definitely a capable tool
[14:00] <adamgreig> and if you're keen on writing code for 3d graphics stuff it's super great, I'm told
[14:00] <Laurenceb_> http://i.imgur.com/nuSWlYG.jpg

[14:02] <Laurenceb_> I have freecad 0.13 installed
[14:03] <Laurenceb_> aiui most recent release
[14:07] <Laurenceb_> it includes most of that Yorik stuff

[14:08] <Laurenceb_> i was having difficulties with creating assemblies, but it might be as im a n00b
[14:09] <nats`> adamgreig it's a good tool for 3D animation because it was the neo geo game design software IIRC
[14:09] <nats`> so it's clearly oriented to be higly scriptable
[14:10] <eroomde> Laurenceb, FreeCAD totally sucked balls compared to proprietary mechanical cad, when i tried it recently

[16:30] <arko> eroomde: haha
[16:32] <arko> LeoBodnar: so last night i brought up the icing issue to my chem eng friend
[16:32] <arko> turned into a group discussion with others as to how to avoid icing on balloons
[16:32] <LeoBodnar> and?!
[16:33] <Laurenceb_> TELL US
[16:33] <arko> one of the best suggestions (never been confirmed but worth a try) is a very hydrophobic coating called neverwet
[16:33] <arko> http://www.neverwet.com/
[16:33] <LeoBodnar> Chemical / mechanical / religious?
[16:33] <Upu> rainx
[16:33] <arko> so the goal is chemical
[16:33] <Laurenceb_> in b4 "coat with plutonium"
[16:34] <arko> we talked about heating meshes, but my buddy did the math real quick and realized it's not going to work well at all
[16:34] <Laurenceb_> yeah
[16:34] <arko> requires power too, thats lame
[16:35] <Upu> can get that from Halfords
[16:35] <arko> one interesting point someone else brought up is to fly two balloons tied like: Ballast-----balloon-----camera facing down to balloon------balloon
[16:35] <arko> so you can capture pictures of how the ice is forming
[16:36] <arko> tldr nucleation sucks
[16:36] <LeoBodnar> There are two issues: ice forming and ice removal
[16:37] <arko> avoiding the former would be great
[16:37] <LeoBodnar> If water just runs off when melting it's not that bad
[16:37] <eroomde> a piezo think in the balloon might help with the latter
[16:37] <arko> i was thinking polyprolene glycol but that stuff comes off
[16:37] <eroomde> buzz at some hopefully resonant frequency to excite the balloon skin
[16:37] <arko> ohh!
[16:37] <arko> yeah
[16:37] <LeoBodnar> under UV
[16:38] <LeoBodnar> Was thinking this morning about sweeping the frequencies throughthe envelope
[16:38] <arko> that as one idea someone threw out too, which then turned into the "powerless" version which is an unbalanced fan
[16:38] <arko> so it would "self vibrate"
[16:38] darkstar-2001 (~matt@dsl-217-155-229-6.zen.co.uk) joined #highaltitude.
[16:38] <arko> but not sure that work
[16:38] <LeoBodnar> Unfortunately piezos don't work well in high humidity
[16:38] <eroomde> ultrasonics
[16:38] <LeoBodnar> and electromagnetic buzzers are just plain heavy
[16:38] <eroomde> might heat the skin too
[16:39] <LeoBodnar> maybe electrostatic charge?
[16:39] <arko> we were joking the ice would look super clear and shiny since it's been agitated
[16:39] <Laurenceb_> in b4 eroomde accidentally tells us how Skylon works
[16:40] <arko> thats on youtube
[16:40] <LeoBodnar> I thought large pair of counter-rotating fans that would produce snapping vibration during descend
[16:40] <Laurenceb_> wut
[16:40] <LeoBodnar> lol
[16:40] <Laurenceb_> i think the simplest plan is probably to fly high
[16:40] <LeoBodnar> yeah that's the plan
[16:40] <Laurenceb_> and as B-11/12 showed, pick the right weather
[16:40] <LeoBodnar> 13k_
[16:40] <arko> btw
[16:41] <LeoBodnar> but -55C for 10 hours soak
[16:41] <arko> there is a grant right now for solving icing on polyethylene balloon
[16:41] <arko> the problem isn't the launch weather
[16:41] <arko> Laurenceb_:
[16:42] <arko> its the fact that leo has flown long enough were the weather changes
[16:42] <arko> plus you guys have water in the sky in the uk
[16:42] <Laurenceb_> yeah it complex
[16:42] <eroomde> there is no risk of me telling you how skylon works
[16:42] <Laurenceb_> but B-11/12 tracked areas of high pressure
[16:43] <Laurenceb_> with no moisture at altitude
[16:43] <Laurenceb_> well - the cruise altitude
[16:43] <arko> i think the idea solution is chemical or something that prevents the nucleation from occuring
[16:43] <Laurenceb_> it seems a tall order
[16:44] <arko> but that seems like an engineering holy grail
[16:44] <arko> yah
[16:44] <Laurenceb_> to prevent a potentially supersaturated gas condensing
[16:44] <Laurenceb_> also what if there is actual rain
[16:44] <Laurenceb_> its going to pool on the envelope
[16:44] <Laurenceb_> id suggest trying to make it into the stratosphere
[16:45] <adamgreig> ugh, either my compressor or my decompressor is not working and I can't tell which or why

[16:46] <Reb-SM3ULC> LeoBodnar: battery freezing up?
[16:47] <LeoBodnar> at -55C yeah
[16:47] <arko> ha!
[16:47] <arko> that's the exact temp i was able to kill my AAA's
[16:47] <LeoBodnar> Energizer Lithiums are ok

[16:48] <LeoBodnar> Energizers?
[16:48] <arko> they were Energizer Lith's too
[16:48] <arko> yea
[16:48] <arko> pretty great
[16:48] <LeoBodnar> ok, so maybe just expect to die at -55C for the night
[16:49] <arko> LeoBodnar: the other idea was an "electric mussle", that would change the shape of the ballloon quicky to break off ice
[16:49] <Laurenceb_> lolz
[16:49] <LeoBodnar> I was considering adding a rubber string to fold the balloon when it deflates
[16:49] <arko> yeah, those batteries are tough, but not much you can do other than insulate or warm it up
[16:49] <LeoBodnar> But this can trap mositure inside
[16:50] <arko> ahh
[16:50] <arko> i'd love to see how the ice actually forms
[16:50] <arko> somehow get picture
[16:50] <arko> s
[16:50] <Reb-SM3ULC> arko: right... can ask my wife to test stuff at her work.. biologyfreezers that do about -70
[16:50] <arko> ah nice
[16:51] <LeoBodnar> cool
[16:51] <LeoBodnar> literally :D
[16:51] <arko> i was able to get a hab down to -60C with the vacuum/dry ice approach
[16:51] <arko> but you can really damage electronics at that temp
[16:51] <LeoBodnar> Does ice form at <100% humidity in thermally balanced system?
[16:51] <arko> good for testing with insul
[16:51] <arko> though
[16:52] <LeoBodnar> 0C to -60C seems so much tougher than 0C to +60C

[17:02] <mattbrejza> not sure really, we've had a decent number of rfm deaths on long duration flights

[17:27] <arko> too complex to mill i assume
[17:27] <arko> ooo
[17:27] <eroomde> they've got 220bar gas coming in a 1.5" id pipe on one side
[17:27] <eroomde> and they need to regulate that down to about 40 bar
[17:27] <arko> dammnn
[17:27] <eroomde> but with a mass flow of about 5kg/s of gas
[17:27] <eroomde> which is a lot

[17:28] <eroomde> internally they look quite similar to rocket engines

[19:16] <ibanezmatt13> I've never understood how floats work
[19:16] <ibanezmatt13> I've always wanted to do one too
[19:16] <LeoBodnar> you need a force that stops latex expansion

[19:18] <LeoBodnar> If you make rubber strain-stress relationship work for you
[19:18] <ibanezmatt13> sounds complex

[19:18] <fsphil> the pressure difference between inside and outside isn't enough to tear the latex
[19:19] <fsphil> once the latex gets to its limit
[19:19] <LeoBodnar> You want to time it so that sharp vertical climb starts just when you were to reach expected float altitude
[19:19] <ibanezmatt13> I see
[19:20] <fsphil> nobody has flown a differential pressure sensor on a float yet
[19:20] <fsphil> or did they?
[19:20] <fsphil> don't think apex did
[19:20] <LeoBodnar> on a latex one?
[19:20] <fsphil> it should see a similar pressure until it starts floating, then the pressure inside will rise
[19:20] <fsphil> yea
[19:20] <mattbrejza> benoxley did fsphil
[19:21] <fsphil> on a floating latex flight?
[19:21] <fsphil> my memory sucks
[19:21] <mattbrejza> it didnt end up floating
[19:21] <fsphil> ah
[19:21] <LeoBodnar> I would consider pre-stretching latex. In my tests natural rubber shows significant memory effect

[19:28] <fsphil> well july and august
[19:28] <keydash> well that was in liverpool
[19:28] <fsphil> sometimes june is nice
[19:28] <mattbrejza> its nicer more of the time down south of course :P
[19:28] <mattbrejza> was pretty pleasent until a few days ago
[19:28] <fsphil> we've had some ground frost already
[19:29] <keydash> here we have an avg of 18º
[19:29] <keydash> ºC
[19:29] <mattbrejza> oh nope of that here yet
[19:29] <mattbrejza> *none
[19:29] <fsphil> much warmer today though
[19:29] <fsphil> despite the rain
[19:29] <fsphil> or probably because of the rain
[19:29] <mattbrejza> yea
[19:29] <keydash> yeah but you have really green grass parks
[19:29] <keydash> and
[19:30] <keydash> good views
[19:30] <keydash> really i like your country
[19:30] <keydash> hope i can finish my study there

[19:31] <mattbrejza> tbh our climate is pretty good really, wouldnt want it really warm in the summer, and compare it to other places at the same latitude our winter is really quite warm
[19:31] <Willdude> Can't even get on google.

[19:36] <fsphil> I remember that one benoxley

[19:37] <fsphil> I should have put a sensor on this one

[19:41] <henryplumb> ibanezmatt13 Hiya, what's the altitude > 29900 then trigger = true thing about in NORB code?
[19:42] <henryplumb> What was it for?
[19:42] <ibanezmatt13> ah forgot to tell you about that...
[19:42] <ibanezmatt13> On Github, I accidentally edited the NORB code with stuff from the Paddy Power code
[19:42] <henryplumb> Right...
[19:42] <Willdude> Paddy Power?
[19:42] <ibanezmatt13> but it's near enough. The trigger just needs removing. Ill sort it for you
[19:43] <Willdude> Aren't they a Betting website?
[19:43] <henryplumb> I've already removed it in my copy
[19:43] <ibanezmatt13> Willdude: http://www.norb.co.uk/index.php?id=wonderworks-paddy-power
[19:43] <fsphil> what are the odds of that?
[19:43] <ibanezmatt13> cool henryplumb
[19:43] <Willdude> Now you are just rubbing it in
[19:43] <henryplumb> and started interfacing it with my temperature and pressure sensors in the same python script
[19:43] <ibanezmatt13> cool henryplumb, sounds like you'll be launching in no time
[19:43] <henryplumb> I hope so
[19:44] <henryplumb> My payload is pratically done. Just got to get a couple more things interfacing and wait for my Ublox max 6 to turn up and then put it all together in a box :)
[19:44] <ibanezmatt13> excellent henryplumb. Don't forget the camera :P
[19:44] <henryplumb> I won't! :P
[19:45] <henryplumb> I'll put my fully interfaced code on github when I'm done :)
[19:45] <ibanezmatt13> henryplumb, there's a few things you could do to maximise the reliability of the software side of things which I can talk to you about once everything's working

[19:46] <ibanezmatt13> one good idea is to have a shell script that continously tries to execute the main flight code every few seconds or so. If it's already running, nothing will happen, but if for whatever reason it stopped, it'll restart
[19:46] <henryplumb> That's a good idea, I'll try that :)

[19:47] <henryplumb> Yup
[19:47] <ibanezmatt13> I think it's flightcode.sh in the respository. VERY generic but there you go. Just rename the program it executes whatever yours is called

[19:51] <ibanezmatt13> thanks

[19:51] <ibanezmatt13> not a clue :)
[19:51] <ibanezmatt13> well
[19:51] <Laurenceb_> willdover more like Ben Dover
[19:52] <Willdude> Was it actually sent from space?
[19:52] <ibanezmatt13> there was this guy who asked about Pi's on here so I started helping him out. Had no idea
[19:52] <Willdude> Well, from the balloon?
[19:52] <ibanezmatt13> Oh yes, proper orbit
[19:52] <Willdude> Or was it sent via RTTY?
[19:52] <Laurenceb_> "Arduino Uno, which is a Microcontroller,"
[19:52] <Laurenceb_> lolling
[19:52] <Willdude> And then made on a computer at home?
[19:52] cuddykid (~acudworth@ joined #highaltitude.
[19:52] <Willdude> Or did you have a direct downlink to paddy power?
[19:52] <ibanezmatt13> Well
[19:53] <ibanezmatt13> In code, it triggered a boolean which was coming down as part of the telemetry
[19:53] <ibanezmatt13> So I had some more code running down here which got the status of the "trigger" live
[19:53] <Willdude> So it wasn't really made from the balloon?
[19:53] <ibanezmatt13> it's as close as we could get to be honest
[19:53] <ibanezmatt13> techically
[19:54] <ibanezmatt13> it wouldn't have triggered had the balloon not reached 100,000ft
[19:54] <ibanezmatt13> plus, it made a good video for them anyway so, win win
[19:54] <Willdude> And space? They say it's space.

[20:12] <fsphil> that statistic alone isn't too useful Willdude
[20:13] <fsphil> you'd need to see it as a percentage of the overall rate
[20:14] <Willdude> Indeed. I suppose it's slightly misleading.
[20:16] <fsphil> there where 51,198 homicides in 2011 in Brazil. that's kinda scary
[20:17] <fsphil> about 140 a day

[20:21] <henryplumb> ibanezmatt13, what's flight mode in your NORB code?
[20:21] <ibanezmatt13> flight mode is a mode you enable on the Ublox
[20:21] <ibanezmatt13> if it's disabled, it will stop working above 12KM
[20:21] <ibanezmatt13> which is bad
[20:21] <henryplumb> Okay, cheers :)

[20:25] ejcspii (~hp@ left irc: Ping timeout: 261 seconds
[20:26] <ibanezmatt13> So basically, you send an array of bytes over the serial port to the Ublox which interprets it as a command and enables this flight mode. It then sends a response back which you read to check it set ok and this is used to determine whether flight mode is set; True, or not: False. And you send this down with the rest henryplumb
[20:27] <henryplumb> ibanzematt13, Cheers for that. It was just confusing me as to what it was!

[21:46] <LeoBodnar> Hasn't TU-144 flew before Concord?
[21:46] <LeoBodnar> They are both dead anyway
[21:47] <arko> heh
[21:47] <arko> damn i was hoping for some super chemical :P
[21:47] <LeoBodnar> XXI century is not what expected it to be
[21:47] <ibanezmatt13> and daveake, have the predicted landing spot continuously update on your screen (we could have done with that)
[21:47] <arko> i think the only way to do this is to fly in i
[21:47] <arko> icing conditions
[21:47] <arko> try things
[21:47] <arko> vibration, nano coating
[21:47] <arko> who knows
[21:48] <arko> see what works
[21:48] <LeoBodnar> Well it says "experiments for dispersing fog in the USA were successful"
[21:48] <daveake> ibanezmatt13 best way for that IMO is to get the payload to calculate it. Then you don't need internet to get the landing position
[21:48] <arko> dispering fog?
[21:48] <ibanezmatt13> excellent point daveake
[21:48] <arko> this is iron wall days too huh?
[21:49] <LeoBodnar> Experiments involved burning few hundred tonnes of oil along the runways
[21:49] <LeoBodnar> per hour
[21:49] <arko> wo
[21:49] <arko> w
[21:49] <arko> thats crazy
[21:49] <LeoBodnar> Oh yes the golden period of the cold war
[21:49] <arko> sounds like an american thing
[21:50] <LeoBodnar> It says Orly airport in France used butane to deal with fog
[21:51] <Laurenceb_> O-rly?
[21:51] <daveake> that was done in WWII
[21:51] <daveake> So bombers could land back after raids
[21:52] <nats`> I have a ZL yagi and the twin crossed section is really long
[21:52] <nats`> should I cut it at a specified lenght
[21:53] <nats`> or let it like that ?
[21:54] <arko> wow
[21:54] <arko> NO BOB DONT LITE THAT CIGARET....

[22:02] <Steve_G0TDJ> Hey Guys :-)
[22:02] <Steve_G0TDJ> GN Matthew
[22:03] <Steve_G0TDJ> Question: I sorted my flight docs out earlier for Sunday's launch. Do they need to be authorized? And if so, how do I know that they've been done?
[22:04] <chrisstubbs> flight doc or payload config ?
[22:04] <Steve_G0TDJ> Both
[22:04] Nick change: heathkid|2 -> heathkid
[22:05] <chrisstubbs> What was the name of your payload? Cant find anything for vayu flight docs wise
[22:05] <Steve_G0TDJ> VAYU-1
[22:05] <chrisstubbs> if you do start from existing and search it should say if they have been approved
[22:06] <Steve_G0TDJ> OK
[22:06] bbjunkie (~bbjunkie@i-83-67-136-45.freedom2surf.net) left irc:

[22:10] JelmerD (~JelmerD@2a02:348:9a:83ad::1) left irc: Ping timeout: 245 seconds
[22:11] <chrisstubbs> just ask the kind folk on #habhub to approve it, you used to have to paste the ID but they dont seem to need it now
[22:11] <Steve_G0TDJ> I didn't select the payload before
[22:11] <Steve_G0TDJ> Who can I asK?
[22:11] <chrisstubbs> Yep that looks in check
[22:11] <Steve_G0TDJ> Oh, in the channel right

[22:13] <chrisstubbs> if you make any changes to the telem format you will have to create it again
[22:13] <Steve_G0TDJ> No, it will satay as it is now
[22:13] <Steve_G0TDJ> Maybe on the next version
[22:14] <chrisstubbs> :)
[22:14] <Steve_G0TDJ> stay even (been a long day)
[22:14] <chrisstubbs> Im off now, laters!
[22:14] <WillTablet> chrisstubbs headers arrived
[22:14] <Steve_G0TDJ> Had a parrot emergency that isn't really over yet
[22:14] <WillTablet> Not sure how to break them in the right place
[22:14] <Steve_G0TDJ> OK chrisstubbs Thanks for the help
[22:14] <chrisstubbs> Ah that was quick will
[22:14] <chrisstubbs> Yeah the female ones are a bit messy
[22:15] <chrisstubbs> I break them with side cutters the next one along then file it back tidy
[22:15] <Steve_G0TDJ> I was going to say almost the same
[22:15] <chrisstubbs> I think you can buy them pre cut if you are feeling really neat
[22:15] <chrisstubbs> Anyway, laters!
