[07:32] <SP9UOB-Tom> morning!
[07:32] <SP9UOB-Tom> what is the frequency of PSB HF ?
[07:32] <Darkside> its landed
[07:33] <Darkside> hours ago
[07:33] <SP9UOB-Tom> ...Im assuming that it is working on HF :-)
[07:33] <SP9UOB-Tom> Darkside: oh...
[07:33] <Darkside> it workd, but the gps had problems
[07:34] <SP9UOB-Tom> im planning to launch 21 MHz in december
[07:34] <SP9UOB-Tom> hope to float
[07:34] <Darkside> launch 20m
[07:34] <Darkside> not 15m
[07:34] <SP9UOB-Tom> why?
[07:35] <Darkside> better clos-in coverage
[07:35] <Darkside> remember you want to be heard by pople in europe
[07:35] <Darkside> not just DX
[07:35] <Darkside> with 15m you may have troubl with that
[07:35] <SP9UOB-Tom> i've done some tests and fsphil reveived me :-)
[07:35] <Darkside> sure, at on eparticular point in th day
[07:35] <SP9UOB-Tom> with 300 mW out
[07:36] <Darkside> i'd way 20m is going to be a better 'all rounder' band
[07:36] <SP9UOB-Tom> yes,
[07:36] <SP9UOB-Tom> i can retune TX to 20m no problem
[07:36] <Darkside> mm
[07:36] <Darkside> i'd say 20m is going to be a better option
[07:36] <tjanos> Stratocaching web cams: http://stratocaching.idnes.cz/
[07:37] <SP9UOB-Tom> ...and turn on APRS also :-)
[07:37] <Darkside> you could do 20m APRS :-)
[07:37] <Darkside> might need more than 300mW for that
[07:39] <SP9UOB-Tom> Darkside: yes, i have my code ready, also for wspr
[07:39] <Darkside> cool
[07:39] <Darkside> you need to be damn sure your transmitter dosnt drift for both of those
[07:39] <Darkside> WSPR in particular
[07:40] <Darkside> JT65 may b a better option instead of WSPR
[07:40] <SP9UOB-Tom> Darkside: it is driven with good 125 MHz TCXO and GPS locked
[07:40] DL5SFI (584106d2@gateway/web/freenode/ip. joined #highaltitude.
[07:40] <Darkside> wider tone spacing, will handle a few Hz drift OK
[07:40] <Darkside> SP9UOB-Tom: wat
[07:40] <Darkside> how big is this payload
[07:41] <Darkside> that sounds pretty complex
[07:41] <Darkside> anyway, the JT65 flight tday workd OK
[07:41] <Darkside> damn slow

[07:41] <Darkside> THOR4 worked just as well
[07:41] <SP9UOB-Tom> evweryhing is done in code :-)
[07:41] <Darkside> yes
[07:42] <Darkside> so you could do THOR4
[07:42] <SP9UOB-Tom> got the photo?
[07:42] <Darkside> yes
[07:42] <Darkside> AD9851

[07:44] <SP9UOB-Tom> on 20m it is more efficient
[07:44] <Darkside> cool
[07:44] <Darkside> i've got a board that does the sam, using an AD9834
[07:44] <Darkside> built it ags ago

[09:32] <Darkside> then how are people expecting to find the rest?

[09:36] <SP9UOB-Tom> Darkside: by accident ;-)
[09:36] <tjanos> They send coordinats with gsm/sms to dedicated phones, and will put on the map for geocaching people
[09:36] <SP9UOB-Tom> ahh..
[09:36] <Darkside> assuming GSM works
[09:37] <SP9UOB-Tom> the payload is really huge
[09:38] <tjanos> Or this is the part of the game: based on not correct coordinats find the seeds
[09:38] <Darkside> which will likely involve hundreds of geocachers traipsing across private land
[09:38] <Darkside> because the chances are that thy will land in private property
[09:39] <tjanos> Yes, it is big payload, and if I know well, they have permission to fly only in Czehaland
[09:40] <tjanos> There are min two interesting quesrions: when started the seeds rotate, how will functioning the antenna, transmit
[09:41] <mclane> I can hear the balloon already, but no decode yet
[09:41] <tjanos> - how big will be the teritory, where the seeds will spread

[09:48] <mclane> hi DL1SGP
[09:50] <x-f> at what altitude will they release the seeds?
[09:52] <DL1SGP> the email does not tell about that hmm possibly remote triggered?
[09:55] <tjanos> I havenot shure informations,but it was plan to allow it about 30 000 m. But it seems, on this alitude there are strong wind to west. Maybe they dont want to put the seed in Austria or Germany
[09:56] <tjanos> *seeds
[09:56] <DL1SGP> according to the email that was sent the plan was to stay within czech boundaries, we will see

[09:58] <tjanos> I think, we can calculate the radius of the territory, what the seed will "occupy" conmparable as the altitude, approx 20 km
[09:59] <mclane> OK1OMX frequency is drifting strongly
[09:59] <DL1SGP> hey that look on the aircraft with chemtrail was cool
[10:00] <mclane> now I see it at 437.643 MHz
[10:01] <mclane> first green decode
[10:01] <DL1SGP> danke mclane
[10:04] <mclane> something is wrong with OK1OMX: gps height is not changing
[10:04] <DL1SGP> does it put out roughly 3s dahs by times mclane? I have a faint trace of a drifty signal here
[10:05] <mclane> there are some seconds of rtty followed by morse
[10:05] <DL1SGP> ok could be partial rtty it is really weak, but looking at the fact that I am near Hannover that is acceptable lol
[10:06] <mclane> yea, I am only 180 km away ;-)
[10:08] <tjanos> it seems, on the arps.fi the altitude is correct from the seed, 16917 m
[10:08] <mclane> OK1OMX gps hangs - I know that story; we had that in PYSY4
[10:09] <DL1SGP> yes it is the rtty bursts that I am picking up here
[10:10] <DJ3AK> nw Seed2 decodes fine here: filter BW 300 Hz for RTTY modem

[10:11] <mclane> I switched to seed2

[10:20] <Reb-SM3ULC> Cool, HAB-day :)
[10:20] <DL1SGP> we should offer some chemtail conspiracy folks to insert instrument for them into a chemtrail by using ballons
[10:21] <x-f> that would require some serious aiming for the balloon and the aircraft
[10:22] <x-f> besides, "it was all staged, they wouldn't release any chemicals knowing we are going to inspect the trail!"
[10:24] <tjanos> there was a plat to follow it with a helocopter

[12:20] <SpeedEvil> On completing reading the ANO - small balloons seem very unregulated. You basically can't release >1000 of them sometimes, can't drop stuff for the purposes of forestry,
[12:21] <LeoBodnar> Can you pilot one?
[12:21] <SpeedEvil> You can actually drop stuff from small balloons with the intent of killing people.

[12:21] <SpeedEvil> Unless it's for the purpose of forestry.
[12:21] <SpeedEvil> - the 'general you can't drop stuff' only applies to 'small unmanned aircraft' -and balloons are specifically exempted from that.
[12:22] <LeoBodnar> So Dropion seding would be illegal?

[12:22] <SpeedEvil> yes

[12:29] <SpeedEvil> As far as I can tell, towing yourself through the air on a parascending parachute with an RC aircraft is quite legal.
[12:31] <SpeedEvil> PArascending parachutes are exempt - in the same way small balloons are. Parascending parachutes launched by winch and cable are controlled. A small RC plane weighing under 20kg, with enough thrust to make you able to ascend however does not come within the scope of these regulations.
[12:32] <LeoBodnar> Are hoverboards regulated as well?
[12:33] <SpeedEvil> Yes.
[12:33] <SpeedEvil> Basically everything is heavily regulated except the exempt categories.
[12:34] <LeoBodnar> This is what is called true freedom
[12:34] <SpeedEvil> Small balloons, kites not weighing over 2kg, any small unmanned aircraft (this does not include small balloons), and any parachutes
[12:34] <SpeedEvil> ^are exempt from most provisions.
[12:34] <SpeedEvil> So, as far as I understand it.
[12:34] <SpeedEvil> Hoverboards are quite illegal.

[13:37] <SpeedEvil> For a full balloon, it ascends till the total density of the balloon + payload is equal to the atmospheric weight displaced.
[13:38] <SpeedEvil> As the atmosphere drops in density, it hovers where the two densities match
[13:38] <bertrik> SpeedEvil: ah, so that's basically the red line, right?
[13:38] <SpeedEvil> When you double the balloon+payloads systems total weight, you are doubling its density - so doubling the density at which it will hover - so dropping that by 5km or so
[13:39] <SpeedEvil> However.
[13:40] <bertrik> ok, I get that, the simplest atmospheric model is halving of density/pressure per ~ 5km or so, disregarding temperature
[13:40] <SpeedEvil> When you increase the amount of 'free lift' - that is excess lift over hovering - you are in effect pushing the balloon + payload system upwards.
[13:40] <SpeedEvil> This means higher internal-external pressure - and at some point, it bursts
[13:41] <x-f> http://batc.tv/ch_live.php?ch=5&id=1194
[13:41] <bertrik> the green line is some kind of constant-force on the envelope vs altitude?
[13:41] <SpeedEvil> bertrik: yes.
[13:41] <x-f> Dave's streams need more sound
[13:41] <SpeedEvil> It is limited by envelope burst pressure
[13:42] <mfa298> x-f agreed
[13:42] <SpeedEvil> http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=ckMvj1piK58#t=33 x-f
[13:43] <bertrik> SpeedEvil: and force is directly proportional to delta pressure (in vs out), right?
[13:44] <SpeedEvil> bertrik: Delta-pressure is proprotional to delta-density.
[13:44] <x-f> SpeedEvil, oooook..
[13:44] <SpeedEvil> I think - if volume is constant
[13:44] <SpeedEvil> I think that means yes.
[13:44] <LeoBodnar> Don't forget temperature
[13:45] <SpeedEvil> LeoBodnar: yes - I'm ignoring that for the moment.
[13:45] <LeoBodnar> k
[13:45] <LeoBodnar> this is why day float is more complex
[13:45] <SpeedEvil> For a constant volume - delta-density is the same as delta-weight (though in different units)
[13:46] <SpeedEvil> Assuming inelastic balloons, and incompressible gasses.
[13:46] <SpeedEvil> err - no - with inelastic balloons - gas compression is irrelevant
[13:46] <bertrik> ok, just for my understanding: a typical pico float is half filled at sea level, becomes fully filled at some height h1, and finally floats even a bit higher at h2, where h1 < h2, right?
[13:47] <SpeedEvil> yes.
[13:47] <bertrik> thanks
[13:47] <SpeedEvil> If it displaces 20g of air at the first altitude, and has a free lift of 2g, it will rise until it has a free lift of 0 - displaces 18g of air.
[13:48] Willdude123 (~Willdude1@unaffiliated/willdude123) left irc: Ping timeout: 240 seconds
[13:48] <SpeedEvil> So the external pressure will be 18/20ths of the initial float altitude.
[13:48] <SpeedEvil> And the pressure on the envelope will be 2/20ths of the pressure at the iniitial float altitude.
[13:49] <SpeedEvil> s/pressure/hoop stress * some constant related to the balloon size/
[13:51] <bertrik> SpeedEvil: thanks, I'll play a bit with the equations and try to get an intuitive feel for this
[13:52] <SpeedEvil> Oooh.
[13:52] <SpeedEvil> I thinkyou can also consider it as burst energy.
[13:52] <SpeedEvil> The balloon bursts at pressure * volume. This is an energy.
[13:53] <SpeedEvil> It has mgh energy available at the initial altitude where it fills.
[13:54] <SpeedEvil> (the nonlinear m due to free lift varying is annoying) but if you integrate the work done against drag with the burst energy, I think they're equal
[13:54] <SpeedEvil> However - that is an argument I need more coffee for.

[18:05] <SpeedEvil> 30mm lens diffraction limited with 822nm light would be 30 microradians. This is a nanosteradian or so. At 100km, a 30mm target is 3*10^-7 radians. So the beamwidth is 30m or so. a 30mm lens gets 1 part in a million of this light. A watt would result in 10^19*10^-6 = 10^13 photons per second. At 1000 photons a bit that's 10^10 photons/s

[18:16] <LeoBodnar> atmospheric absorption could be a bit of a problem
[18:16] <LeoBodnar> do they make solid state masers?
[18:17] <SpeedEvil> Masers = microwave
[18:18] <BrainDamage> there are some, but they aren't considerably superior to normal cavity stuff which is already coherent
[18:20] <LeoBodnar> You can't do cavity with low power levels, is that right?
[18:21] <SpeedEvil> Any sort of microwaves isn't really viable

[22:35] <Upu_M0UPU> I don't understand enough about the underlying maths to say if it can but the guy who wrote the library did it specifically for this reason
[22:35] <Upu_M0UPU> Eben has had a bee in his bonnet about SDR for a while
[22:35] <Lunar_Lander__> craag, this is from the SLAC/Fermilab magazine "Symmetry"
[22:36] <Upu_M0UPU> sadly GPU is closed
[22:36] <craag> Lunar_Lander__: right..
[22:36] <Upu_M0UPU> however he has said repeatidly if you give him the code he'll get it GPU accelerated
[22:36] <Lunar_Lander__> I like question 11 "Where the heck do cosmic rays come from?"
[22:36] <craag> hence pinging matt ? :P
[22:37] <Upu_M0UPU> well he's made that decoder on an Android
[22:37] <adamgreig> can't really "give" him the code though, in a useful sense?
[22:37] <adamgreig> doing things for gpu is very different
[22:37] <adamgreig> you probably want to be using different algorithms
[22:37] <adamgreig> but it kinda depends on the gpu
[22:37] <Upu_M0UPU> well
[22:37] <craag> Upu_M0UPU: It's all on his github btw.
[22:37] <adamgreig> in any event if you know how to make the code work on a gpu you probably don't need a reference
[22:37] <Upu_M0UPU> yes but he has some very bright people working for him
[22:38] <adamgreig> then why does he need code? just tell them to make an sdr decoder
[22:38] <Upu_M0UPU> lol
[22:38] <adamgreig> it's not rocket science, there are references
[22:38] <adamgreig> rtty is just sync and matched filters
[22:38] <adamgreig> would be really interested just to know how they interface with the gpu
[22:38] <adamgreig> whether it's openCL esque or writing custom shaders or actually something totally proprietory
[22:38] <Upu_M0UPU> I think its the more mathematically intensive stuff he's referring too
[22:39] <craag> Lunar_Lander__: 'What is the nature of the vacuum?' - that's a strange one
[22:39] <adamgreig> that is the mathematically intensive stuff
[22:39] <adamgreig> for general sdr purposes anyway
[22:39] <Upu_M0UPU> demonstrating how little I know
[22:39] <adamgreig> maybe a gpu decimater or something would be nice, but..
[22:39] <adamgreig> it's a big shame the gpu is closed is all I'm getting at I guess

[22:40] <Upu_M0UPU> yeah I think thats broadcom
[22:40] <Lunar_Lander__> craag, yeah
[22:41] <mfa298> from seeing how things appear to work I think you can could do basic sdr and decoding on the pi cpu (mikestir's app almost works on the pi for the receiver side, and rtl_fm seems to work to some extent)
[22:41] <craag> Yeah broadcom are not helpful.
[22:41] <mfa298> and matts app looks to load up on the pi - but I've not managed to get audio into it yet.
[22:41] <craag> From what I've heard from Interns, they're really cagey about everything to do with their chips.
[22:41] <Upu_M0UPU> yep
[22:41] <craag> Scared of chinese clones.
[22:46] <LeoBodnar> craag: Nature of vacuum is not s strange question. Complete nothingness is pretty much ruled out by quantum mechanics so it may well be "bubbly" and "wrinkly" nothingness rather than smooth and empty one

[23:31] <LeoBodnar> If I were to fill zero pressure balloon with He + butane mix how do I know saturated butane vapour pressure at certain temperature and pressure?

[23:34] <Laurenceb__> if you have ibutane in a sealed envelope, partial pressure isnt relevant
[23:34] <LeoBodnar> I know, but I want to stick it into main envelope
[23:34] <LeoBodnar> this will save a lot of weight
[23:34] <LeoBodnar> if it works

[23:36] <Herman-PB0AHX> maxel yes writing green lines on this moment
[23:36] <LeoBodnar> The problem with the separate ibutane pouch is it should be quite large to accommodate expansion
[23:36] <Laurenceb__> yeah
[23:37] <Laurenceb__> this sounds hard to simulate
[23:37] <LeoBodnar> to avoid it going superpressured
[23:37] <LeoBodnar> I have simulated it and it should be 2-3 times the volume of butane on the ground
[23:38] <LeoBodnar> obviously it can be larger if weight is not a problem
[23:38] <LeoBodnar> the key is stopping it SPing
[23:38] <Laurenceb__> need to get NASA to sponsor this
[23:38] <LeoBodnar> It expands and then suddenly it liquifies and collapses
[23:38] <LeoBodnar> Pure magic
[23:39] <Laurenceb__> seems relevant to their plantery balloon ideas
[23:39] <LeoBodnar> I want to stick it into main envelope for a laugh
[23:40] <LeoBodnar> so it will start saturating and condensing at certain pressure/temperature point
[23:40] <LeoBodnar> It must almost the same
[23:40] <Laurenceb__> yeah
[23:40] <Maxell> ah, great
[23:41] <LeoBodnar> How much water vapour can air contain at 20C ?
[23:41] <Laurenceb__> this will make the ibutane more volatile
[23:41] <Maxell> now we wait until the signal gets stronger: $$B-30,236,233932t31116,52.3683,0.2952u6748,6,-22,3t 78,0*B19d
[23:41] <Laurenceb__> not much by volume
[23:41] <Laurenceb__> LeoBodnar: iirc ibutane is too volatile already
[23:41] <Laurenceb__> im not sure this will work
[23:41] <LeoBodnar> See, if you make 50/50% mix of air to water and cool it down to 50C almost all water will condense
[23:42] nats` (~nats`@evil.t4ke.me) left irc: Ping timeout: 245 seconds
[23:42] <LeoBodnar> so below butane boiling point Helium won't be able to absorb a lot of butane vapour
[23:43] nats` (~nats`@evil.t4ke.me) joined #highaltitude.
[23:43] <LeoBodnar> *50/50 % mix of water/air at 200C
[23:44] <Laurenceb__> not exactly
[23:44] <Laurenceb__> you need to look at the vapour pressure
[23:44] <Laurenceb__> this is why i suggested methanol
[23:45] <LeoBodnar> expecting Willdude any minute now
[23:45] <Laurenceb__> i have him on ignore :P
[23:47] <LeoBodnar> I don't believe 50/50 mix of Helium to butane will remain gaseous at say -30C
[23:47] <LeoBodnar> 50/50 He + butane density is roughly the same as air
[23:48] <Herman-PB0AHX> maxell u are writing now green ?
[23:48] <Laurenceb__> its easy to work out with partial pressures
[23:48] <LeoBodnar> So 20/80 butane + Helium is reasonably buoyant
[23:49] <Laurenceb__> http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/e/e7/LogNbutaneVaporPresure.png
[23:49] <LeoBodnar> how? I slept through all my thermodynamics classes :D
[23:49] <Laurenceb__> so 20/80 only starts condensing at -30C
[23:49] <Laurenceb__> at 1Bar
[23:50] <Laurenceb__> as pressure goes lower it gets even worse
[23:50] <Laurenceb__> 1Bar ~ 1000mmHg
[23:51] <LeoBodnar> Ah, you are taking 1/5 of mix pressure?
[23:51] <Laurenceb__> yes
[23:51] <LeoBodnar> OK, then move on to n-butane
[23:51] <LeoBodnar> it should be better
[23:51] <Laurenceb__> http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/a/a1/MeOHlogVaporpressure.png
[23:51] <Laurenceb__> that was n-butane
[23:52] <LeoBodnar> bummer
[23:52] <Laurenceb__> methanol might be feasible
[23:53] <LeoBodnar> prediction suggests 90 degrees turn any minute now for the last 4 hours
[23:54] <Laurenceb__> so at 8Km
[23:54] <Laurenceb__> with 20/80 methanol/He
[23:54] <Laurenceb__> it starts condensing below 15C
[23:55] kpiman (56a2eb45@gateway/web/freenode/ip. left irc: Quit: Page closed
[23:55] <LeoBodnar> I get 0C
[23:56] <LeoBodnar> at 8km pressure is 1/3 atm
[23:56] <Laurenceb__> so 330mm
[23:57] <Laurenceb__> divide that by 5
[23:57] <LeoBodnar> by 0.2 it's 66
[23:57] <LeoBodnar> yeah you are right
[23:58] <LeoBodnar> so it won't go to 8km then
[23:58] <LeoBodnar> I use about 50-60L of Helum
[23:59] <LeoBodnar> so 5g lift difference more like 10%
[23:59] <LeoBodnar> 10/90 mix more like it
