[09:24] <Andrew_M6GTG> anyone ever done a night balloon with hi-intensity flashing LEDs?
[09:24] <eroomde_> DominoEX is an MFSK mode, i.e. you have to generate multiple frequs, which means you need to be able to generate multiple voltages to go into the ntx2
[09:24] <Steve_G0TDJ> I've been toying with the idea Andy
[09:24] <eroomde_> so you need dome means of doing that between your arduino and your ntx2
[09:25] <eroomde_> and then it's just a question of implementing the protocol, much like with rtty. the source code for fldigi is a good place to clook
[09:25] <Andrew_M6GTG> was it FITSAT-1 that had the LEDs?
[09:25] <DL1SGP> yes as far as I remember
[09:26] <fsphil> I saw something like FITSAT-1, but it wasn't over the horizon at the time

[09:26] <LZ1CLA> Ok as far i have read, when you variate the voltage on txd pin of the module, you change the frequency
[09:26] <Steve_G0TDJ> I missed that one.
[09:26] <LZ1CLA> is that enough for Domino ?
[09:27] <eroomde_> yes, although you'll want to do some calculations as to whether the resolution of the voltage you can vary is enough
[09:27] <LZ1CLA> ok, thanks
[09:27] <eroomde_> to save you some calculation time, that means you want a resolution of about 12 bits or greater
[09:28] <eroomde_> you could use a DAC, or PWM with a filter
[09:28] <LZ1CLA> What about temp instability? How do you compensate it?
[09:29] <Andrew_M6GTG> LZ1CLA: I was wondering the same, just tinkering with an NTX-2 but very sensitive to voltage/temp new version has temp compensation

[09:30] <eroomde_> i have to drive to work
[09:30] <LZ1CLA> yep
[09:30] <eroomde_> but i can explain all that i did once i get to work
[09:30] <eroomde_> cool, i'll talk to you then

[09:44] <x-f> B-27 was a sausage, B-28 was a saucer (Leo's words), B-29 might be a potato or something else

[10:12] <eroomde> temp calibration
[10:12] DL7AD (~quassel@p57BB8A62.dip0.t-ipconnect.de) left irc: Ping timeout: 240 seconds
[10:12] <eroomde> i mapped freq output vs voltage input at 3 or 4 different temperatures
[10:12] <eroomde> freezer, fridge, room temp, 50C
[10:13] <eroomde> that gave me a 2D calibration surface, hich I turned into a 2D lookup table in code
[10:13] <eroomde> so i could say 'send a tone of this freq' and the algorithm would, which a reading from the tmperature sensor and the lookup table, interpole the right voltage
[10:14] <eroomde> it's probably worth noting that the NTX2Bs have a temperature compensated crystal oscillator, meaning you probably don't need to calibrate them
[10:14] <Andrew_M6GTG> eroomde: thanks for that, interesting ;-)
[10:14] <eroomde> and sorry about my typing
[10:15] <eroomde> it's just awful
[10:15] <eroomde> I rely on the extreme redundancy of the english language in conveying a message to you
[10:15] <Andrew_M6GTG> typing isn't as bad as Steve_G0TDJ:
[10:15] <Steve_G0TDJ> LOL
[10:15] <eroomde> B-29 is heading south is it?
[10:16] <Andrew_M6GTG> oh hi Steve, you still here ;-)
[10:16] <eroomde> it's natrium43's birthday, btw
[10:16] <eroomde> or wa yesterday
[10:16] <Steve_G0TDJ> on the phone
[10:16] <eroomde> was*
[10:16] <eroomde> which too busy being a silicon valley bod these days, he started spacenear.us/tracker
[10:17] <eroomde> when the distributed listener was an irc bot that grepped the text log of normal fldigi
[10:17] <eroomde> and spat it into the irc channel
[10:17] <eroomde> he knocked up the tracking map which plotted what the bot was saying
[10:19] <Steve_G0TDJ> Nothing heard from B-29 yet. Off the phone now Andy ;-)
[10:19] <x-f> (that was short description of a chapter in eroomde's book about UKHAS)
[10:19] <Steve_G0TDJ> Book?
[10:20] <eroomde> I'm being one of those literary characters who announces they're writing a book
[10:20] <eroomde> but then doesn't
[10:20] <eroomde> but then for several years is described as being 'writing a book'
[10:20] <Steve_G0TDJ> Ah ha!
[10:20] <eroomde> I was going to do a short history of Habbing in the UK, up to about 2010
[10:20] <Steve_G0TDJ> That would be a good read for us noobs
[10:20] <eroomde> as that's when I stopped and so am not much qualified to speak about anything after that
[10:21] <Andrew_M6GTG> Steve_G0TDJ: you have flown.. you aren't a noob.. ;-)
[10:21] <Andrew_M6GTG> twice as well..
[10:21] radim_OM2AMR_ (radimmuti@ left #highaltitude.
[10:21] <Steve_G0TDJ> :-) Thanks Andy
[10:22] <eroomde> yeah, there's a lot that's happened in the past, and a lot of it was quite experimental
[10:22] <eroomde> and some of it is coming back again
[10:22] <eroomde> which is nice
[10:22] <Andrew_M6GTG> first flight was a bit Wright brothers distance mind.. ;-)
[10:22] <Steve_G0TDJ> ROTFL
[10:23] <eroomde> in the gran tradition!
[10:23] <Andrew_M6GTG> and I know I am courting Karma by making jokes...
[10:23] <Steve_G0TDJ> It was just as thrilling
[10:24] <LZ1CLA> Thank for all that info eroomde. :)
[10:24] <eroomde> no probs. it works, if you do the calibration, but if you have the option of getting an ntx2b for domex, it's probably a much easier way of doign things
[10:25] <eroomde> or, you can make a thermally stable payload enclosure
[10:25] <eroomde> that's the other option
[10:25] <Steve_G0TDJ> B-29 ascending very slowly
[10:26] <eroomde> there is something really quite primal about launching a hab
[10:26] <LZ1CLA> i have checked that i have the NTX2B, so no temp calibration ?
[10:26] <eroomde> i imagine it activates the same bit of your brain as when the eskimo father sends his eskimo son off hunting in a canoe for the first time
[10:26] <Steve_G0TDJ> Yeah, it's strange that Ed. I got that too.
[10:27] <eroomde> a sort of 'good luck, my pretty'
[10:27] <eroomde> and then it's on its own
[10:27] <Steve_G0TDJ> Rite of passage stuff

[11:13] <Steve_G0TDJ> DOn't worry gonzo_ Plenty of time for you to track
[11:13] <DL1SGP> Steve_G0TDJ: the RYRYRY was used in times of mechanical RTTY as it excerciyed all five "Bits" of the Baudot code so if it came out fine the machine was running properly
[11:13] <Steve_G0TDJ> That makes sense, Thanks guys.

[15:38] <craag> We've got cable here, but it's heavily over-subscribed.
[15:38] <craag> They offered free installation and 12-month contracts to students.
[15:39] <daveake> Given the average age of neighbours where w're going, I'm hoping that won't be a problem for us :)
[15:39] <daveake> It'll be me and Richard Hammond
[15:39] <craag> haha
[15:40] <Reb-SM3ULC> how much for ftth in uk?
[15:40] <daveake> depends on distance to the cabinet

[15:41] <fsphil> I'm just about 50m from the cabinet. tempting
[15:42] <fsphil> there's a fixed charge as well as per-metre
[15:42] <daveake> How much speed improvement would you get then?
[15:42] <fsphil> probably not that much
[15:42] <fsphil> I'm at 60mbit atm

[15:42] <fsphil> fibre might get to a few 100mbit in future though
[15:43] <Reb-SM3ULC> AH, in Sweden there are a lot of drives on fiber, packagecost of about 2000 euro.
[15:43] <daveake> I'd pay that
[15:43] <daveake> We get 5M down 0.4 up
[15:43] <craag> We had 60Mbit, complained because it went down to ~2Mbit in the evenings. Got a free upgrade to 100Mbit that goes down to about 60 in the evenings... something is not linear there!
[15:43] <daveake> It's the "upu" that's the biggest issue
[15:44] <daveake> That said, if I had 40 each way, I'd have remote backups etc running
[15:44] <craag> 100 down, 10 up, it's lovely :)
[15:44] <daveake> er, "up"
[15:44] <fsphil> I've 20 up :)
[15:44] <adamgreig> man, I should get more up
[15:44] <adamgreig> http://www.speedtest.net/result/3024814049.png
[15:44] <adamgreig> 745Mbps just isn't cutting it
[15:44] <daveake> go away!
[15:44] <fsphil> pfft
[15:44] <craag> haha
[15:45] <craag> We've also got the firewall limiting everyone to 10Mbit burst up, 2.5Mbit sustained. So no slow-down because the housemate has left his torrents on again :)
[15:45] <Reb-SM3ULC> daveake: i will :) 36 month 100/10 inluded
[15:46] <daveake> ah not so bad
[15:46] <Reb-SM3ULC> daveake: comparing with my expensive 8/1 adsl that doesn't work in the summer-months...
[15:47] <daveake> Summer? In Sweden? How long does that last then? :p

[16:35] <mfa298_> if that openreach site is uses the same data as samknows I'm not sure I'd trust it. Over the last year whenever I've looked at samknows FTTC has been due within the three months of the day I've looked. Each time that day comes around it get's moved forward by three months.
[16:35] <fsphil> it's coming up empty here

[16:38] <mfa298> ooh, you can download a list of exchanges in the various categories

[16:40] <fsphil> everything is portable with a big enough forklift
[16:40] <SpeedEvil> mfa298: You get your own cable reel in the parking lot of the exchange.
[16:43] <mfa298> interesting, looks like the only Soton exchange so far to have FTTC/P is the one most students are connected to.
[16:43] <mfa298> Nasty Horrible Students :p

[16:51] <mfa298> at least there's not much contention for me :D
[16:51] <mfa298> I think virgin do their own thing unless it's virgin adsl in which case that might go back to the BT exchange
[16:52] <mattbrejza> i think all the virigin stuff here is fttc then coax?
[16:52] <mfa298> although I think a lot of the Soton cable infrastructure is quite old (was NTL, which was Cable&Wireless, which was Telewest - or something like that)
[16:52] <craag> mattbrejza:
[16:52] <craag> yep
[16:53] <craag> the main issue around here is the soton9 cab
[16:53] <mattbrejza> soton9 cab?
[16:54] <craag> yeah, VM's soton9 cabinet
[16:54] <craag> serves most of portswood and some of the flowers estate
[16:54] <craag> has a single 10gig link to the exchange :|
[16:55] <mattbrejza> ha lol
[16:55] <mfa298> sounds like a good design, put all the students on a single link :D
[16:55] <mfa298> mega contention
[16:55] <mattbrejza> my main issue with VM is that when you use remote desktop you get occasional dropouts of whatever and have to wait for remote desktop to reconnect
[16:56] <mattbrejza> may not have been VM 's fault mind you
[16:56] <mfa298> I might have to wait fo it, but hopefully when we get FTTC on the Bassett exchange it should be fast and not much contention
[16:56] Action: mfa298 lives in hope
[16:56] <mattbrejza> it was super bad at the start of the year though, but probably a cab fault
[16:57] <mattbrejza> is the VM portswood evening slow down noticable?
[16:57] <mattbrejza> or how noticeable?
[16:58] <craag> 60Mbit goes down to about 2Mbit
[16:58] <craag> it's noticeable alright :)
[16:59] <mattbrejza> well seems that we wernt on that cabinet last year
[16:59] <mattbrejza> how do you know about cab9?
[16:59] <craag> but... it seems if you get the 100mb plan, you get priority, the lowest we've seen since we got a free upgrade is 60mb in the evening.

[17:07] <mfa298> nats_laptop: if no one else has got the packet and you've got a useable partial it might be worth sticking it on here as someone might be able to push it into the DB. Looks like you got a packet not long ago though (my map just updated)
[17:07] <nats_laptop> I give them to leo
[17:07] <nats_laptop> but I'll do a full copy of the buffer
[17:08] <mfa298> if they get uploaded there's probably not much point sticking them up here, just if there's been a gap with no data and you've got something that can be used.
[17:09] <x-f> nats_laptop, cool then, there were no updates for a while so i got worried, but drifty is better than nothing at all
[17:09] <mfa298> need some more tracker stations in southern france.

[21:50] <ve6ts> has anyone here tried to split enough h2 to fill even a small balloon?
[21:51] <fsphil> I did, failed
[21:51] <fsphil> ended up making a lot of rust
[21:52] <ve6ts> same here
[21:52] <SP9UOB-Tom> i did, successfully :-)
[21:52] <fsphil> shush :p
[21:52] <SP9UOB-Tom> KOH + Al
[21:52] <fsphil> what's the secret?
[21:52] <ve6ts> SP9UOB-Tom: how much did you make?
[21:52] <SP9UOB-Tom> about 0.3 cu m
[21:52] <ve6ts> SP9UOB-Tom: how did you pressurize to fill a balloon?
[21:52] <SP9UOB-Tom> wait
[21:52] <ve6ts> wow that is alot
[21:52] <Laurenceb_> ive done a H2 filled picoballoon
[21:52] <Laurenceb_> just an LED flasher
[21:53] <ve6ts> Laurenceb_ did you make the H2? i use H2 for all of my flights (i buy it)
[21:53] <Laurenceb_> used Aluminium and NaOH
[21:53] <ve6ts> Laurenceb_ excellent
[21:53] <SP9UOB-Tom> ve6ts: https://scontent-b.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-frc3/423285_401141826578252_510651696_n.jpg
[21:54] <fsphil> that's how some of the earliest balloons where filled iirc
[21:54] <Laurenceb_> the reaction is hard to control
[21:54] <Laurenceb_> you need a good condenser
[21:54] <SP9UOB-Tom> reaction KOH + alluminium
[21:54] <ve6ts> wow didn't know it creates enough pressure
[21:54] <SP9UOB-Tom> warning it is egzotermic, so must be cooled
[21:54] <SpeedEvil> Laurenceb_: You lye!
[21:55] <SpeedEvil> What was the envelope?
[21:55] <SP9UOB-Tom> it creates enough pressure to fill latex balloon
[21:55] <ve6ts> i've tried before spiliting water
[21:55] <LeoBodnar> ve6ts: I did when I was a teenager. we have barely survived :D
[21:55] <ve6ts> didn't really work that well, VERY SLOW
[21:55] <fsphil> has anyone filled a balloon by using electrolysis?
[21:55] <LeoBodnar> HCl + Zn
[21:55] <SP9UOB-Tom> try to incerase surface
[21:55] <SP9UOB-Tom> i was using aluminium film (foil?)
[21:56] <Laurenceb_> i just used a wheely bin liner
[21:56] <ve6ts> when i was a teenager, i created clorine gas trying to split water (i thought adding salt would speed up the reaction) :)
[21:56] <fsphil> I used a kind of metal scrubber
[21:56] <fsphil> but I think my voltage was too high
[21:56] <fsphil> I was using 48V
[21:56] <ve6ts> i used 12V, it was too slow
[21:56] <SP9UOB-Tom> reaction is quick, but anyway i have to wait about hour
[21:56] <Laurenceb_> you need to have a good condenser
[21:56] <fsphil> well between 48-60V -- it was from my solar array
[21:56] <Laurenceb_> i bubbled through water
[21:57] <ve6ts> you can buy some great electrolysis machines on ebay, expensive but no pressure to fill a balloon
[21:57] <Laurenceb_> bbl
[21:57] <SP9UOB-Tom> there is lots of moisture in gas, so water is condensing, but it can be easilly removed
[21:58] <LeoBodnar> The problem is H2 contains water vapour
[21:58] <SP9UOB-Tom> yes, reaction is at about 80 deg celcius
[21:59] <ve6ts> LeoBodnar so too heavy for balloon launches?
[22:00] <LeoBodnar> Difficult to control. If it condenses/freezes you have lost lift
[22:00] theo__ (05512b99@gateway/web/freenode/ip. joined #highaltitude.
[22:00] <SP9UOB-Tom> just have to wait and let the water out trough the neck (with minimum h2 loss
[22:01] <ve6ts> environment canada uses electrolysis to fill their balloons, i wonder how they remove the water vapor
[22:01] <ve6ts> maybe the electrolyser removes it first
[22:01] <LeoBodnar> some industrial desiccant ?
