[07:30] <Steve_G0TDJ> 12:30 onwards
[07:30] <daveake> I'm hoping to be there about 13:00
[07:30] <daveake> So I'm relying on ISH :)

[07:31] <Steve_G0TDJ> I'm expecting to be asked loads of questions etc.
[07:31] <daveake> Feel free to launch on time though :p
[07:31] <SP9UOB-Tom> jcoxon: chemical power only? Or also solar?
[07:32] <Steve_G0TDJ> daveake: There's no fixed time so really, doesn't matter

[08:12] <SP9UOB-Tom> tjanos: there WAS no flight 75 years ago, there was one big failure http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gwiazda_Polski
[08:12] <SP9UOB-Tom> At around 4:00 a.m. the gigantic balloon was filled with hydrogen. Without warning and from some undetermined cause, the stiff fabric went up in flames. According to witnesses, a spark appeared on the top of the bag and quickly enveloped the balloon. It burned very fast. Fortunately, the gondola was spared and no one was injured.,[4] which gave Polish scientists hope for a next attempt.
[08:12] <SP9UOB-Tom> As the gondola was saved, Polish experts decided to recreate the bag and organize another takeoff. In August 1939 the Americans provided the Poles with helium [5] and the flight was planned for September 1939, near the town of S³awsko, in the Gorgany [6] However, the German and Soviet attack on Poland made this impossible.

[08:47] <malgar> has it burst?
[08:48] <jcoxon> yes
[08:48] <fsphil> I'm surprised
[08:48] <malgar> and did it float beacuse it was underfilled?
[08:48] <malgar> payload? gps+transmitter?
[08:48] <jcoxon> malgar, sort of
[08:49] <jcoxon> it was a ublox GPS, arduino and NTX2B radio
[08:51] <malgar> other question: how do you ask for receiving stations in russia for example? What do you suggest to do when we will launch in Italy to alert HAMs and invite them to track us?
[08:52] <jcoxon> malgar, there are a few online ham forums you can post on
[08:52] <jcoxon> or speak to local amateur radio club
[08:52] <jcoxon> s
[08:53] <DL1SGP> also posting here about it is a good idea, there are some italian forums on HAB activities too, mostly relating to radiosoundings but always interested in other launches
[08:53] <jcoxon> malgar, it seems that once you get a few people interested it grows quite quickly
[08:53] <malgar> which ones? do you think that they will manage dl-fldigi easly?
[08:54] <DL1SGP> for instance if you give me notice for an italian launch early enough I can spread the news out to some italian contacts of mine :)
[08:54] <jcoxon> malgar, we have a guide
[08:54] <SpeedEvil> it's not that hard to use :-)
[08:54] <jcoxon> you can translate it to italian for us
[08:54] <malgar> jcoxon: I know the guide
[08:54] <malgar> jcoxon: yes I could
[08:54] <DL1SGP> with the auto configure thingie depending on the accuracy of your flightdoc using dl-fldigi is a question of a few clicks anyhow

[08:55] <malgar> perfect
[08:55] <SP9UOB-Tom> ok, pico is UP :-)
[08:56] <DL1SGP> thank you Tom :)
[08:57] <malgar> jcoxon: we will develop a basic payload using arduino transmitting coordinates and temperture. If everything seems working fine and we will have enough time we will develop a payload using raspberry and ssdv
[08:57] <SP9UOB-Tom> its going to catch ATLAS ;-)
[08:58] <jcoxon> SP9UOB-Tom, it needs to hurry up!
[08:58] <Herman-PB0AHX> atlas going down now
[08:58] <malgar> are there jet streams above UK?
[08:58] <jcoxon> malgar, yes, most of the time
[08:58] <SP9UOB-Tom> jcoxon: it doesnt have afterburners onboard :-(
[08:59] <jcoxon> malgar, good idea, always start simple, will this be a latex balloon launch?
[08:59] <malgar> DL1SGP: where are located your italian contacts?
[08:59] <eroomde_> woo burst
[08:59] <malgar> jcoxon: yes latex. Target: 30 km
[09:00] <G4BWR_Mark> jcoxon: Re HF is it not possible to use a mode more suitable to QRP? or are the Tx modes limited?
[09:00] <SP9UOB-Tom> ohh... atlas was burst
[09:01] <DL1SGP> malgar: my main contact is in Latina, but he has a nationwide network
[09:01] <jcoxon> G4BWR_Mark, i think the problem is that we are limited legally to such low power that its not pratical
[09:01] <jcoxon> and ends up being LOS which UHF suits better

[09:03] <jcoxon> the other thing is many of the traditional QRP setups such as WSPR are oppurtunistic

[09:03] <jcoxon> while a balloon we'd like regular data
[09:05] <jcoxon> okay - bye Atlas - good flight
[09:05] Action: SP9UOB-Tom have 21 MHz payload with WSPR/DOMINO/Aprs 300 baud ready but dont want to loose pracious DDS-60 Board :-(

[09:05] <G4BWR_Mark> jcoxon: Yep I see the problem, what about something like JT65 which is time synchronised, after all GPS is used on flights?
[09:05] <jcoxon> G4BWR_Mark, certainly would be possible but the band choice would be an issue
[09:06] <jcoxon> no airborne HAM in UK and the ISM HF bands are crowded

[09:48] <Upu> probably best
[09:48] <SP9UOB-Tom> just dump the data to fram and read it when they are needed
[09:48] <fsphil> the sensor has a pixel clock, if that could somehow control the ram chip
[09:48] <fsphil> have it store and advance on a rising edge
[09:49] <SP9UOB-Tom> fsphil: small fpga could help
[09:49] <fsphil> could be a good excuse to play with fpga's yea :)
[09:49] <SP9UOB-Tom> LOL
[09:49] <fsphil> though I suspect there's a more elegant solution

[09:50] <SQ9MDD> yeah...
[09:50] <SQ5NWI> SP9UOB_Tom: Still to weak signal for me. :-( Need directional antenna!
[09:50] <SQ9MDD> i think 13:00 UTC or later
[09:51] <SQ5NWI> SQ9MDD: Really? Where? I'd like to be there! :-)
[09:51] <SQ9MDD> Lomianki
[09:52] <SQ5NWI> SQ9MDD: Again... Far, but not to far. I think this is time to go back to Komorow launch site. ;-)
[09:52] <SQ5NWI> too far
[09:52] <SQ9MDD> check the wind...
[09:52] <SQ9MDD> Komorow is to risky
[09:53] <SQ5NWI> I saw the prediction. I know... :-(. I'll go to Lomianki. Just let me know in advance.

[14:11] <Hix> adamgreig - do you know of any rooms apart form #ipython on IRC? Trying to get notebook to run in windows, failing miserably
[14:11] <adamgreig> one of the guys in my lab was moaning about that I think
[14:11] <adamgreig> maybe anaconda
[14:11] <eroomde> join the darkside
[14:11] <adamgreig> or use linux or mac like a sensible person
[14:11] <eroomde> ^
[14:12] <Upu> hah
[14:12] <eroomde> the second you start to write software, posix is a much happier ecosystem to live in, imo
[14:13] <Hix> yes, got it on my xubuntu vm but trying to get it to work on Win7 so I can use it at work
[14:13] <Hix> tried EPD and anaconda but to no avail
[14:13] <Willdude123> I've never actually used a mac properly
[14:13] <Willdude123> I've used them in apple stores
[14:14] <eroomde> it's just unix under the hood, so it'd be quite familiar to you if you're used to the command line
[14:14] <eroomde> that said the package manager (homebrew) is decent but not quite as good as the mature linux ones, in my experience
[14:14] <eroomde> but it can run adobe stuff which is a plus
[14:14] <adamgreig> not least because it used gentoo as a model!?
[14:14] <adamgreig> but that's because old mac package management was a port of ports for gentoo anyway
[14:15] <adamgreig> so I guess they stuck to the crazy "oh we'll just distribute source code, your macbook air can compile all the software you need" idiocy
[14:15] <eroomde> and ofcourse octave needs to compile all of tex
[14:15] <adamgreig> of course
[14:16] <eroomde> I showed james %%octave on friday
[14:16] <eroomde> he nearly wet himself
[14:16] <adamgreig> haha
[14:16] <adamgreig> it is amazing
[14:16] <eroomde> Hix, are there any standout 3d parts libraries for cad online?
[14:16] <adamgreig> especially the automagic copying whole arrays of data in and out of octave
[14:17] <eroomde> i specifically want to be able to search for a M3x30 cap head, say, rather than by manufacturer
[14:17] <Hix> eroomde www.3dcontentcentral.com
[14:17] <daveake_> Signal stopped I assume that means Steve has found it and switched it off

[14:21] <Hix> snap

[15:00] Action: Hix dances around the room
[15:00] <eroomde> congrats
[15:00] <eroomde> glad you found a solution
[15:01] <Hix> :D
[15:01] <eroomde> those kinds of problems can either be solved with a tiny google or a different operating system
[15:01] <eroomde> there rarely seems to be much middleground

[15:05] <nats`> ohhh
[15:05] <eroomde> LeoBodnar, yes
[15:05] <Hix> there is a mindset for CAD and once you have it, you start to see the logic
[15:05] <eroomde> but reciprocally, it seems really widely cracked
[15:05] <Zuph> I'd be perfectly happy with FreeCAD if it would just let me put multiple parts into an assembly.
[15:06] Steve_M0SXH (~M0SXH_Ste@ joined #highaltitude.
[15:06] <eroomde> i guess their business model is just to sell to businesses that can afford 5k/seat, knowing that it's not worth the risk to them to use cracked versions
[15:06] <LeoBodnar> I think I have tried to squeeze into that mindset and I still think it's basically shit
[15:06] <eroomde> and ignore the consumer market completely
[15:06] <Zuph> Although for EDA software, I've fallen in love with Diptrace.
[15:07] <nats`> Zuph for his price diptrace is awesome
[15:07] <SpeedEvil> Hix: I did learn a bit of autocad a while back - then did stuff in kpovrayedit without problems. Blender floored me.
[15:08] <Zuph> Beats the pants off of Eagle, KiCad, etc.
[15:08] <nats`> yep but you can't really compare kicad to diptrace
[15:08] <nats`> for a price of zero kicad is great
[15:08] <nats`> for a professional tool diptrace is clearly one of the best if you don't need fancy stuff
[15:08] <Hix> got SpeedEvil AutoCAD is purely evil, just ask chrisstubbs :D
[15:09] <Zuph> For most folks, Diptrace has 0 cost as well :-)
[15:09] <chrisstubbs> I book time off work just to avoid autocad
[15:09] <nats`> Zuph you mean russian license ? :D
[15:09] <Zuph> Nope, They have a nonprofit license that allows up to 600 pins, iirc.
[15:09] <nats`> because the limited version are quickly out of use
[15:09] <Zuph> You have to email for the key, though
[15:09] <nats`> yep 600 pin is quickyl reached
[15:10] <Willdude123> eroomde, true point, I've never seen you track one.
[15:10] <Willdude123> Why not though?
[15:10] <eroomde> have been in a bit of a hab fug for a few years
[15:10] <Zuph> Eh, I get close to 600 pins for hobby projects, but I've never had it limit what I could do.
[15:10] <eroomde> since about 2010
[15:10] <chrisstubbs> I might have another play with solidworks now actually
[15:11] <Willdude123> eroomde, fug?
[15:11] <Zuph> The only thing I wish it would do is trace length/impedance matching. Routing USB can be a pain.
[15:11] <Hix> I'm currently self learning a thing called TracePRO for work. its a raytracing program for photometry - that, my friends is a thing of horror in immeasurable proportions
[15:11] <eroomde> a stale state
[15:11] <eroomde> i've not been that interested
[15:12] <nats`> Zuph you don't have diff pair in the free version ?
[15:12] <Zuph> It isn't in the paid version either.
[15:12] <Zuph> I've got the paid version at work.
[15:12] <adamgreig> fugue?
[15:12] <nats`> I never routed anything with diff pair in it but that's a really deal breaker
[15:13] <adamgreig> huh, I guess fug is right too
[15:13] <Zuph> You can fudge it, since it will let you see the length of each trace
[15:14] <eroomde> it was since the esa testing really. i can't see myself doing anything that ambitious with latex balloons again, and i don't really like flying just for the sake of flying, and also that project really took it out of me

[16:28] <daveake> It's after while(1)
[16:28] <daveake> unless I'm missing a bracket

[16:28] <joph> and even if there's a brake, n is always >= 90
[16:29] <ibanezmatt13> oh
[16:29] <daveake> This code is in loop(); that executes in, well, a loop. So no need for while(1) anyway

[19:16] <arko> i love rain no joke
[19:16] <Steve_G0TDJ_> Fair enough.
[19:16] <Steve_G0TDJ_> chrisstubbs: I switched it on way before launch

[19:23] <daveake> Now to do the parsing then

[19:23] <chrisstubbs> Laters Steve_G0TDJ_AFK, Just checked your habitat export and it was on for about 15 mins prior to launch but the fix was a bit wobbly on the ground
[19:24] <ibanezmatt13_> hopefully daveake, the NMEA parsing function I wrote should just fall into place. But yeah, we'll see when I get the antenna
[19:24] <Steve_G0TDJ_AFK> Cheers chrisstubbs I@ll have to have a crash course in all this back-endery :D 73

[19:25] <daveake> Yes ibanezmatt13_ cool. Now you need to check the checksum and parse the sentences

[23:26] <wb8elk> if it had floated it would've crossed the Atlantic in 30 hours.
[23:28] <wb8elk> There is another balloon launched by AB3MC from Maryland in another trans-Atlantic attempt.
[23:31] <adamgreig> aww, bad luck
[23:31] <adamgreig> a trans-a floater would be super

[23:34] <Lunar_Lander> yeah
[23:34] <Lunar_Lander> it's interesting btw
[23:34] <Lunar_Lander> until last year, everyone was after the highest altitude
[23:34] <Lunar_Lander> and then leo begain the B-X series
[23:34] <Lunar_Lander> *began
[23:34] <Lunar_Lander> and now everyone tries PICO flights :)
[23:36] <arko> wb8elk: nice!
[23:37] <arko> wb8elk: if i launch a floating pico from Los Angeles and if we can find someone in Albuquerque we might be able to track it the whole way
[23:37] <arko> winds dont usually go east/west sadly
[23:38] Action: arko really wants a 433mhz band network in the united states
[23:38] <adamgreig> but you have an aprs band network :P
[23:38] <arko> but it sucks
[23:38] <arko> no room for experimenting either
[23:38] <arko> you cant try different encoding
[23:38] <arko> lots of interference in some places
[23:39] <arko> and no cool community :)
[23:39] <adamgreig> you raise several good points :P
[23:40] <arko> im willing to buy people a usb rtl and preamp/filter if they are willing to do tracking
[23:40] <arko> *applies within the united states :)
[23:41] <blakangel> 19:38 < adamgreig> but you have an aprs band network :P
[23:41] <blakangel> 19:38 < arko> but it sucks
[23:41] <blakangel> 19:38 < arko> no room for experimenting either
[23:41] <blakangel> 19:38 < arko> you cant try different encoding
[23:41] <blakangel> 19:39 < arko> lots of interference in some places
[23:41] <blakangel> 19:39 < arko> and no cool community :)
[23:41] <adamgreig> shame the rpi can't quite manage it yet
[23:41] <blakangel> 19:39 < adamgreig> you raise several good points :P
[23:41] <blakangel> 19:40 < arko> im willing to buy people a usb rtl and preamp/filter if they are willing to do tracking
[23:41] <adamgreig> or that'd be a very cute bundle
[23:41] <blakangel> woops
[23:41] <blakangel> lol
[23:41] <blakangel> arko
[23:41] <blakangel> did you get the 433mhz preamp
[23:41] <arko> hey blakangel
[23:41] <blakangel> and saw filter
[23:41] <arko> yes i did
[23:41] <arko> adamgreig: yeah seriously
[23:41] <blakangel> have you tried it out
[23:41] <arko> yes, it's fantastic
[23:41] <arko> works great
[23:42] <arko> especially nice not seeing the radio stations in every band
[23:42] <arko> 106.7 KROQ was everywhere
[23:42] <arko> 434.50mhz even
[23:42] <blakangel> heh
[23:43] <blakangel> thats pretty bad
[23:43] <arko> yeah, the front end is terrible
[23:43] <arko> my hackrf is much nicer though
[23:43] <arko> but not enough for low power tracking
[23:44] <arko> so hackrf+preamp/filter is great
[23:45] <arko> if we could get tracking stations in Pheonix, Albuquerque, Dallas, Denver, St. Louis
[23:45] <arko> the east coast and texas have people
[23:45] <arko> so we may get some good coverage
[23:46] <arko> adamgreig: does the rpi really not handle it?
[23:46] Action: arko looks at his rpi thats not doing anything
[23:48] <adamgreig> it could maybe
[23:48] <adamgreig> like I think in theory it should be able
[23:48] <adamgreig> but dl-fldigi taxes it
[23:48] <arko> darn
[23:48] <adamgreig> drop the dl-fldigi intensive GUI
[23:48] <arko> im gonna try it now
[23:48] <arko> heh
[23:48] <arko> yeah
[23:48] <adamgreig> and make a python and C with web interface
[23:48] <adamgreig> which only uses SDRs
[23:48] <adamgreig> talks to them direct, no stupid virtual audio cable shit
[23:49] <adamgreig> and the web interface can just let you enter a freq and mode, or pick a balloon from habitat and tune automatically etc
[23:49] <qyx_> you can use gnuradio for that
[23:49] <qyx_> it is python/c++ lib for that
[23:50] <qyx_> already can demoodulate fsk and supports multiple frontends
[23:50] dbfffff (~dbfffff@adsl-ull-183-164.45-151.net24.it) joined #highaltitude.
[23:51] <adamgreig> maybe
[23:51] <adamgreig> every time I try to not use gnuradio I seem to regret it for a while, but every time I try to use gnuradio I regret it more
[23:52] <adamgreig> it's powerful, but it's also huge and a bit bloated and drivers make me sad and it's a pain to integrate with bits and I'm not convinced it's as cpu efficient as it could be
[23:52] <adamgreig> so idk
[23:52] <qyx_> hh
