[00:04] <LeoBodnar> btw I have ordered omron thingy
[00:05] <Laurenceb__> should be interesting
[00:05] <Laurenceb__> i use constant current drive and an instrumentation amp
[00:05] <Laurenceb__> 100µA
[00:05] <fsphil> B-30's float is rather lovely
[00:06] <LeoBodnar> Zen-like float
[00:06] <LeoBodnar> self-centered and ignoring predictions
[00:07] <LeoBodnar> Whis one do you use?
[00:07] <LeoBodnar> I like INA122 and AD627
[00:07] <Laurenceb__> i forgot..
[00:07] <LeoBodnar> they are rail-to rail
[00:07] <Laurenceb__> whatever was cheap on farnell
[00:08] <Lunar_Lander_> what do you want to do with butane anyway?
[00:08] <LeoBodnar> Ah, OK
[00:08] <LeoBodnar> Stick it into a pico
[00:08] <fsphil> tiny balloon, big boom

[00:09] <Lunar_Lander_> fsphil, XD
[00:09] <Lunar_Lander_> hi
[00:10] <PB0NER> can you make some wind?
[00:10] <fsphil> baked beans will do the trick
[00:10] <Lunar_Lander_> LOL
[00:10] <PB0NER> i guess so
[00:10] <fsphil> but do give us some warning
[00:10] <PB0NER> 2km/h ...
[00:11] <fsphil> yes it's quite calm here today
[00:11] <PB0NER> or less
[00:11] <fsphil> local sonde is still landing in scotland though
[00:11] <fsphil> the higher altitude winds are pretty strong
[00:12] <Lunar_Lander_> lol there are about 20 balloons on spacenear
[00:12] <PB0NER> I'm wating for B30, I thing I do hear it, not sure

[00:22] <LeoBodnar> And the pump is just a dc motor?
[00:22] <Laurenceb__> remember to hook up n-sub correctly
[00:22] <Laurenceb__> yes
[00:22] <LeoBodnar> can it pump either way?
[00:22] <Laurenceb__> no
[00:22] <Laurenceb__> its a diaphragm pump
[00:23] <Laurenceb__> then there is a calibrated leak as well
[00:23] <LeoBodnar> I see
[00:23] <Laurenceb__> there an 8bit toshiba micro
[00:23] <Laurenceb__> with built in LCD controller
[00:23] <LeoBodnar> with solenoid control or just permanently on?
[00:23] <LeoBodnar> what's n-sub?
[00:24] <Laurenceb__> solenoid is normally open
[00:24] <Laurenceb__> for safety
[00:24] <Laurenceb__> so in event of failure it will vent
[00:24] <LeoBodnar> ah the leak valve?
[00:24] <Laurenceb__> n-sub is a pin on the sensor

[08:08] <arko> heh yeah
[08:08] <arko> been writing a paper
[08:08] <Steve_G0TDJ> Oh? Anything HABy?
[08:09] <arko> and with the sun going down at like 4:30pm it feels like the day never really was
[08:09] <arko> sortaish, its about accelerometers
[08:09] <arko> for an instrumentation class
[08:09] <arko> it's extremely boring
[08:09] <Steve_G0TDJ> Yeah. I could get used to the quick ending days if it were permenant
[08:09] <Steve_G0TDJ> I would have thought that would have been facinating.
[08:10] <arko> it is when you are first learning it, but this paper has been nothing but busy work
[08:10] <arko> knew about them already
[08:10] <Steve_G0TDJ> Ah OK
[08:10] <eroomde> papers are 10% inspiration, 90%...
[08:11] <arko> yep
[08:11] <Steve_G0TDJ> Sounds like commercial Photography :-)

[08:12] <eroomde> is that you line of work?
[08:12] <eroomde> would help explain the quality of your photos!
[08:13] <Steve_G0TDJ> Thanks for the compliment - It used to be. After I left Reuters, I tried to go solo but it didn't really work out.. I@ve been a photographer practically all my life though.
[08:14] <arko> nice, my dad has been a professional photographer for 30 or so years now, its stupid difficult to make money with it
[08:14] <Steve_G0TDJ> I did a stint back in the film days with two very good photographers as assistants, got side-tracked in to teaching IT and then got a 'proper' IT job.
[08:14] <eroomde> i can imagine it'd be tough. especially news photography today
[08:14] <Steve_G0TDJ> Absolutely. Especially now with digital making it so easy for everyone.
[08:14] <arko> oh yeah
[08:15] <Steve_G0TDJ> I'm not saying that everyone can't create a decent image but most hobbyists can't get to pro standards.

[08:17] <arko> my dad hated weddings

[15:13] <x-f> according to Hysplit backward "prediction" relative humidity was rising from 35% (midnight) to 60% (now), maybe that is why B-30 is slowly loosing altitude

[15:14] <DL7AD_> x-f: definetly... hope its being a second b-6
[15:15] <qyx_> they are soldered directly to grounded parts of the antenna so probably they are in parallel

[15:23] <craag> As the solar voltage is about 0.5V
[15:23] <craag> which is one solar junction :)
[15:24] <qyx_> now it is but sometimes it has risen above 0.8V
[15:24] <qyx_> thats why i am asking
[15:24] <craag> Solar cells will do that. 0.5V is the maximum power point
[15:25] <craag> It'll rise to about 0.8V with no load
[15:25] <craag> ie when the battery is fully charged.
[15:26] <craag> Good solar cells will have a maximum power point of almost their max voltage.
[15:27] <craag> But cheap ones can be about half of the max.
[15:27] <craag> (High internal resistance of the cell)
[15:27] <qyx_> ok, thx
[15:27] <qyx_> i just wondered if single cell is enough for that spv1040
[15:28] <qyx_> but apprently it does very well with just 1 cell
[15:28] <craag> Looks like it's designed for single cell :)
[15:30] <qyx_> i am worried if the panel reaches the minimum voltage of 0.3V in not-so-ideal conditions
[15:30] <qyx_> i will try
[15:30] <craag> If it reaches 0.3V there's going to be not nearly enough power coming out of it to do anything anyway.
[15:31] <craag> THe point of MPPT tracking is that it'll lower the current to allow the voltage to rise up to 0.5V
[15:31] <craag> At which point you're getting the most *power* out of the solar panel you can.
[15:32] <qyx_> yes but the mpp depends on the illumination level
[15:32] <craag> Which will work great if you can step-up that 0.5V to trickle-charge a battery.

[15:32] <qyx_> in cloudy day it doesn't need to be as high as 0.5V
[15:33] <craag> It'll get it as high as it can.
[15:34] <craag> But if it can't get it higher than 0.3V, then there's going to be almost no power coming out of the panel anyway.

[19:13] <MobileNathan> Hi

[19:14] <Upu_M0UPU> which does

[19:14] <Upu_M0UPU> http://habduino.org/
[19:14] <Upu_M0UPU> also has a radio
[19:14] <Willdude123> Hi Upu_M0UPU, just been watching some videos on how to solder these resistors and caps
[19:14] <MobileNathan> We don't need anything that works above 18 km; we only need it to transmit when it gets close to the ground.
[19:14] <Upu_M0UPU> hmm not really MobileNathan
[19:14] Crashjuh|QTH (~rody@clhal-105-251.eduroam.inholland.nl) joined #highaltitude.
[19:15] <Upu_M0UPU> if you transmit all the time you know exactly where it is all the time
[19:15] <Upu_M0UPU> and you get a prediciton of where its going to land
[19:15] <Upu_M0UPU> which means recovery is much easier
[19:15] <Willdude123> So it means you can drive there as it's going down for quicker recovery also
[19:16] <fsphil> B-30 going nowhere fast
[19:16] <craag> And some GPSs will lock up above 18km, and not recover on the way down..
[19:16] <MobileNathan> Upu_MOUPU, I will check out your site. We have a prediction of where the payload will land already, but all we need is the GPS shield to send the coords via SMS when it reaches an altitude where it can transmit.
[19:16] <craag> Ah, you mean GSM shield?
[19:17] <Willdude123> MobileNathan, what if there's no GSM coverage where it lands?
[19:17] <MobileNathan> Yes sir. But we would need a GPS shield as well.
[19:17] <Willdude123> Or is this a backup?
[19:17] <MobileNathan> I was wondering that too, Wildude123
[19:17] <fsphil> GSM is fine as a backup, but I wouldn't trust a payload to only that
[19:17] <Willdude123> That's why most HABs use RTTY transmitters too
[19:17] <craag> I have a lot of experience with the GSM shield, but wouldn't use it for a HAB!
[19:17] <fsphil> radio tracking is definitly more reliable, though it will take a little (but not much!) more work
[19:17] <Upu_M0UPU> GSM trackers have a 50% chance of loosing your payload
[19:17] <Upu_M0UPU> probably greater
[19:18] <Willdude123> Then you can DF for it when it lands if the transmitter fails
[19:18] <Upu_M0UPU> back yes, primary no
[19:18] <craag> Well there was that 'Stratocache' where less than half of their dropped GSM stuff transmitted back.
[19:18] <fsphil> ooh yes
[19:18] <fsphil> forgot about them
[19:19] <fsphil> did they all have GSM? that was a good test
[19:19] Nick change: KipK_away -> KipK
[19:19] <MobileNathan> Lol, this is making me depressed. My friend and I are relatively new to weather balloon launching, so you guys suggest we use the GSM as backup and get a HAM license?
[19:19] <craag> I assume so, they weren't radio and were too small for satellite.
[19:19] <Upu_M0UPU> you don't need a ham license
[19:19] <Upu_M0UPU> in fact you can't use a HAM license for this
[19:19] <fsphil> unless you're in the US, in which case you might
[19:20] <MobileNathan> I know.
[19:20] <Upu_M0UPU> have you done anything with an Arduino before ?
[19:20] <MobileNathan> Yes.
[19:20] <mfa298> MobileNathan: depends on where you are
[19:20] <Upu_M0UPU> ok so you can make the LED blink ?
[19:20] <MobileNathan> Yes, that's pretty basic.
[19:20] <Upu_M0UPU> you can transmit radio then seriously it IS that simple :
[19:20] <Upu_M0UPU> http://ukhas.org.uk/guides:linkingarduinotontx2
[19:20] <fsphil> 434mhz is license free in europe
[19:20] <MobileNathan> My friends and I took multiple classes with Arduino and used it for a while; that's why we wanted to use it for this.
[19:21] Maroni (~user@ left irc: Quit: 'quit_message'
[19:21] <fsphil> the arduino works pretty well for this task
[19:21] <Upu_M0UPU> so make that radio circuit and then add a suitable GPS module

[19:22] <MobileNathan> Upu_M0UPU, are you suggesting we use this as a main of backup?
[19:22] <mfa298> MobileNathan: where are you based ?

[19:23] <craag> ah
[19:23] <MobileNathan> We are launching in the Mojave, most likely. Haven't picked an exact spot yet.
[19:23] <Upu_M0UPU> I would make the radio tracker as the main
[19:23] <MobileNathan> Ok
[19:23] <Upu_M0UPU> and use a GSM as a backup
[19:23] <Upu_M0UPU> however sorry US based ?
[19:23] <fsphil> wonder if you're near arko
[19:23] <Upu_M0UPU> the 434Mhz isn't exactly license exempt over there
[19:23] <MobileNathan> Yes, we are near Arko.
[19:24] <Upu_M0UPU> its exempt for intermittant control purposes
[19:24] <Upu_M0UPU> I believe

[19:25] <Upu_M0UPU> if you do get a HAM license MobileNathan that Habduino shield can do APRS as well
[19:26] <MobileNathan> Ohhhh!!! That's good to know!
[19:26] <craag> MobileNathan: http://arkorobotics.com/contact.html
[19:26] <Upu_M0UPU> needs another radio module but the code can transmit both APRS and 434Mhz at the same time
[19:26] <craag> ALthough he'll probably turn up in here soon enough.
[19:26] <Upu_M0UPU> your APRS network over there is way better than ours
[19:26] <MobileNathan> Does it do GSM?
[19:27] <Upu_M0UPU> http://www.arkorobotics.com/
[19:27] <Upu_M0UPU> no
[19:27] <Upu_M0UPU> GSM sucks :)
[19:27] <MobileNathan> Why's that? No network coverage?
[19:27] <Upu_M0UPU> coverage
[19:27] <Upu_M0UPU> they don't always work when they come back down
[19:27] <Upu_M0UPU> GPS seems to get confused
[19:27] <craag> Especially coverage 2 inches off the ground (where your landed payload is)
[19:28] <Upu_M0UPU> the main issue is the GSM trackers are generally cheap tat from China
[19:28] <Upu_M0UPU> so everything is cheap, antennas etc
[19:28] <Upu_M0UPU> doubt the batteries are up to much either
[19:28] <mfa298> don't forget that the coverage for gsm at ground level (in a ditch, under the payload) is not as good as when it's held at head height
[19:28] <Upu_M0UPU> dunno I've seen many launches lost with people using GSM trackers
[19:28] <daveake> IME they're pretty deaf on both GSM and GPS
[19:28] <Upu_M0UPU> *only
[19:28] <eroomde> you can get separate gsm modems
[19:29] <eroomde> and rig them to your own tracker
[19:29] <eroomde> works better than a completely self-contained unit
[19:29] <Upu_M0UPU> yeah if you do that its a much better idea

[22:29] <DL7AD> okay second.... where does leo has his geofence in the tracker?
[22:29] <DL7AD> i dont think he has the full resolution
[22:29] <Upu_M0UPU> note that geofence is very rough
[22:30] <Upu_M0UPU> https://github.com/Upuaut/APRS_Projects/blob/master/Pico92/geofence.h
[22:30] <Upu_M0UPU> takes about 4k on a AVR I think
[22:30] <DL7AD> yes.... and because i dont know how rough leo's geofence is, i wanna ask
[22:31] <Upu_M0UPU> like I say if he's using the one I made
[22:31] <Upu_M0UPU> rough but servicable
[22:31] <DL7AD> hm..

[22:49] <gonzo_> the signs translation reminded me of the story I was told of some firends in france, trying out their recently learned night school french. When asking for the bill in a restaraunt, the waiters just looked bemused and walked off.
[22:50] <gonzo_> only after a few more attempts, a frenchman speaking good englist explained, you were asking for 'the birds beak'
[22:50] <fsphil> lol
[22:50] <fsphil> what's that in french?
[22:50] <gonzo_> beek... Nope that doesn't look any better
[22:51] <fsphil> I remember learning "l'addition, sil'vous'plaus" -- only spelled correctly
[22:51] <gonzo_> not a clue! I don'y speak it
[22:51] <Lunar_Lander_> xD!
[22:51] <fsphil> l'addition, s'il vous plait
[22:52] <DL7AD> heee?
[22:52] <cm13g09> quite literally "The addition, if you please"
[22:52] <fsphil> my spelling sucks in multiple languages
[22:52] <cm13g09> if I remember
[22:52] <gonzo_> and as the code I am working on at the mo has onoly french commenting (and is written in what I can only assume is a french style!) I have no wish to
[22:52] <gonzo_> I only speak two languages, english is my 2nd. Bad language is my first
[22:53] <fsphil> aah, "bill" is french for beak
[22:53] <DL7AD> okay... lets switch back to chinese... pls
[22:53] <DL1SGP> typonese should be universal world language
[22:53] <gonzo_> not enough chrs on the keyboard!
[22:53] <cm13g09> sure hackvana could help us with the Chinese.....
[22:53] <gonzo_> i spoke it flewrentrlky
[22:54] <fsphil> isn't that korean?
[22:54] <cm13g09> it's OK - nothing is as bad as Chinglish....
[22:54] <cm13g09> which is what often happens in Chinese-developed instruction manuals...
[22:55] <cm13g09> after all....
[22:56] <cm13g09> who really wants this gem: "Is send complesed? Press the any key."
[22:56] <cm13g09> Should've said
[22:56] <cm13g09> "Sending is completed. Press any key"
[22:56] <cm13g09> right idea....

[23:01] <fsphil> is it a tricky language?
[23:01] <fsphil> it looks like impossible code to me
[23:01] <hackvana> Actually I suspect they're the same, except the font is different
[23:02] <hackvana> Good news: Chinese grammar is very regular, far more than English and many European languages.
[23:02] <hackvana> No verb conjugation, no variations for singular and plural, gender, no differences for tenses
[23:02] <DL7AD> more than german?
[23:02] <fsphil> gender seems a particular useless language feature
[23:03] <hackvana> Bad news: Learning characters is a feat of brute force memorisation (no way around it)
[23:03] <Lunar_Lander_> yea
[23:03] <hackvana> It's a tonal language, so if you can't control and hear pitch properly, it'll never work for you
[23:03] <hackvana> And due to a limited number of sounds, it's a homonym nightmare
[23:03] <hackvana> But apart from that, it's lots of good fun
[23:03] <Lunar_Lander_> ohhhhh
[23:04] <DL1SGP> in that case chinese sounds like rtty to me :)
[23:04] <fsphil> I think I'd be better at japanese

[23:13] <LeoBodnar> Japanese have three alphabets
[23:13] <LeoBodnar> Well two phonetik ones
[23:13] <LeoBodnar> phonetic
[23:14] <db_g6gzh_> Confusing when you've worked out the name of the station to get off at from the map in the train and then the platform sign is in another alphabet.
[23:14] Nick change: KipK -> KipK_away
[23:15] <fsphil> I read that one of them isn't used too often, mostly for foreign words
[23:15] <LeoBodnar> but there are plenty of them! kohee makudonarudu etc
[23:15] <fsphil> not sure I'd like japan. I don't like fish, and they seem to live on it
[23:16] <db_g6gzh_> katakana
[23:17] <fsphil> hiragana is the other one
[23:17] <LeoBodnar> and then kanji but good news is there are only 2000 in basic use
[23:17] <db_g6gzh_> and kanji
[23:17] <fsphil> kanji is where it gets confusing
[23:18] <db_g6gzh_> other food is available, I'm not a great fish fan myself
[23:18] <fsphil> so if someone in china is speaking over the phone, and need to write down a word they don't know the symbol off ... they can't ask the other person to spell it

[23:39] <DL7AD> its transmitting "milli-celcius"
[23:39] <DL7AD> im using BMP180
[23:40] <arko> im pretty sure thats deci-celcius no?
[23:40] <DL7AD> but BMP180 is just the smaller one
[23:40] <arko> right
[23:40] <arko> its a much more sane sensor
[23:40] <DL7AD> ehm yes youre right
