[00:02] <Geoff-G8DHE> looks good to date but difficult to compare given the change in p[ower level and just got that frame OK no problems 16/1000
[00:03] <Geoff-G8DHE> what would be a good comparison would be to rotate around all the modes to compare!

[08:41] <Reb-SM3ULC> Morrn!
[08:41] <LeoBodnar> I know why this last APRS point came to be
[08:42] <LeoBodnar> B-32 went into hibernation after getting a position fix and when it woke up it transmitted it over APRS before getting a new one
[08:43] <LeoBodnar> And since a new one is inside the France then this was the only APRS transmission it did
[08:43] <tjanos> ok, have it another hidden trikks?
[08:44] <LeoBodnar> it's technically a bug but probably yes

[09:30] <tweetBot> @jamescoxon: B-32 flying over France, 434.500Mhz, pips + every 4mins Contestia. Somewhere between Nantes and Bourges - any info is useful #ukhas #hamr
[09:30] <nats`> that could be done but in this case my antenna could only be directed for south and west
[09:31] <tjanos> by the way, I found a very simple remote monitoring tool, its name is rtlwebfft. It need a rtl-dsdr and a machine with puiblic IP address Is is not for receive and decode, but monitorig remotely in a simple way
[09:31] <tjanos> https://github.com/asdil12/rtl_webfft
[09:32] <jcoxon> fldigi can actually be used remotely
[09:32] <jcoxon> well dl-fldigi
[09:32] <jcoxon> it can generate a png of the waterfall
[09:32] <jcoxon> so if you can control the freq manually
[09:32] Nick change: DanielRi1hman -> DanielRichman
[09:32] Possible future nick collision: DanielRichman
[09:32] <jcoxon> you can display the waterfall and control dl-fldigi as well

[09:34] <fsphil> yea vnc is very simple
[09:34] <jcoxon> maybe we should put together a guide for remote setup

[09:46] <tjanos> maybe another simple solution, to use rtl-sdr with a small board with known network address and you can attache to remotly a simple webfft or a receiver of iq-data

[10:13] <Reb-SM3ULC> tjanos: ah, cool that a lot of stuff is moving on.
[10:13] <tjanos> I think too, the key point how can optimise the network trafic between the "server" and the clients
[10:13] <LeoBodnar> To me "modern" means "capable of producing colour output in the terminal window" lol
[10:14] <Darkside> Reb-SM3ULC: it sends raw IQ data to the browser
[10:14] <Darkside> which is not optimal
[10:14] <gonzo___> Colour, you have a new fandango CGA card in the PC?
[10:14] <Reb-SM3ULC> tjanos: yeah, you can just send iq's for the selected width and the demod at the client, if one thinks that's smart..
[10:14] <tjanos> For me the "modern" means dont support the old, working versions
[10:15] <Reb-SM3ULC> Darkside: so on an rtl with 3.2 MS it would mean quite som traffic... ?
[10:15] <tjanos> to send all the raw IQ data, it is not the solution!
[10:15] <Darkside> yep
[10:16] <Darkside> you sent FFT magnitudes, and demodulated audio

[11:36] <DL7AD> good afternoon
[11:36] <Geoff-G8DHE> Morning
[11:36] <ei3kd> mornin' - who's rx-ing B-32?
[11:36] <craag> which is the point where I stopped, hence my map only shows one balloon at a time.
[11:36] <DL7AD> ei3kd: aprs
[11:36] <DL7AD> LeoBodnar: why is b32 flying that high?
[11:36] <DL1SGP> Moin Sven!
[11:37] <Geoff-G8DHE> Nope its over France so no APRS
[11:37] <DL7AD> DL1SGP: moin moin
[11:37] <Geoff-G8DHE> hence no current update
[11:37] <DL7AD> Geoff-G8DHE: its slightly over the water so its transmitting aprs
[11:37] <G8APZ> craag I see... one problem after another!! Where is that data format determined? DEsigned by a committee?
[11:37] <Geoff-G8DHE> Oh yes its changed since I last looked!
[11:38] <craag> G8APZ: No, it was built by one guy a long time ago and has jsut been evolved since then. Hence the need for a rewrite!
[11:38] <mfa298> G8APZ: as more evolution rather than design I think (as jcoxon indicated earlier)
[11:38] <fsphil> it evolved, and it has a plan
[11:39] <G8APZ> craag including better file design - no repeating groups in a record
[11:39] <Geoff-G8DHE> Nah look back in the archive 09:10 [09:10] <LeoBodnar> http://leobodnar.com/balloons/B-32/here.png

[11:40] <Geoff-G8DHE> The last APRS was one held in the buffer as B-32 went to sleep it seems
[11:41] <Geoff-G8DHE> Ah the man himself
[11:41] <DL7AD> LeoBodnar: hee? two balloons, hydrogen?
[11:41] <LeoBodnar> So it woke up over France and transmitted the old datapoint
[11:41] <DL7AD> something must have changed
[11:41] <eroomde> the matrix
[11:42] <LeoBodnar> Same balloon type and Helium formula

[12:03] <LeoBodnar> Do you have a link Darkside
[12:03] <Darkside> nope lol
[12:03] <Darkside> theres also APRS telemetry strings
[12:03] <Darkside> which you could use
[12:04] <LeoBodnar> Yeah I know that
[12:05] <fsphil> http://he.fi/doc/aprs-base91-comment-telemetry.txt
[12:05] <fsphil> I did this on swift, pretty simple to do
[12:06] <Geoff-G8DHE> That Madrid WebSDR seems very clean given that its located withi the city itself ?
[12:06] <fsphil> like most things in aprs, it's a bit of a hack
[12:06] <jcoxon> there is an argument to keep it brief on teh aprs
[12:06] <Darkside> http://he.fi/doc/aprs-base91-comment-telemetry.txt
[12:06] <Darkside> aha
[12:06] <Darkside> fsphil: beat me
[12:06] <jcoxon> encourage listening for it
[12:06] <fsphil> yea better to have two packets
[12:06] <x-f> swift has been cancelled?
[12:07] <LeoBodnar> I don't want APRS to squeeze out the manned network that was such a challenge to build
[12:07] <LeoBodnar> ta fsphil Darkside
[12:08] <DL7AD> G8APZ: haha :D good luck for searching
[12:08] <LeoBodnar> Heh I read this document a month ago
[12:13] <jcoxon> LeoBodnar, must admit i never thought we'd have aprs on a pico
[12:13] <LeoBodnar> I thought we needed at least 5W
[12:14] <LeoBodnar> Considering HF experiments fails
[12:14] <LeoBodnar> And the fact that it uses FM mode
[12:16] <jcoxon> teh 300mW Hx-1 works well
[12:17] <jcoxon> but obviously it works even better
[12:17] <craag> LeoBodnar: How much power do you use for HF?
[12:17] <craag> Sorry, APRS?
[12:17] <Darkside> LeoBodnar: it'l work bettr because A) lower noise floor
[12:17] <Darkside> B) receive antennas can have much more gain than HF antennas
[12:18] <mattbrejza> im still suprised you can get away with the same front end for both 144/434
[12:18] <Darkside> and C) big network of receive sites, in optimal locations
[12:23] <fsphil> x-f: nah, I'll do a proper swift launch sometime
[12:23] <LeoBodnar> about 15mW craag
[12:24] <gonzo___> I did see one of the replies to the RSGB summary talked aboutthe FPV people. And MOST are using licence exempt 100mW cams.
[12:24] <gonzo___> bet they have not read the offcom doc
[12:24] <fsphil> yea was gonna say
[12:25] <gonzo___> started typing a reply, but thought better left
[12:26] <mfa298> most of them think they'll get access to lots of bands and more power by just taking the foundation
[12:26] <fsphil> 2.4ghz should still be worth a try, with a nice big antenna on the ground
[12:26] <mfa298> and havn't realised that foundation doesn't give access to those bands
[12:26] <fsphil> a big dish made out of some kind of mesh
[12:26] <jcoxon> bbl
[12:26] <gonzo___> an old C band TV dish
[12:26] <mfa298> or that they want more power on non AR bands (900MHz)

[12:29] <f5vnf> RR
[12:31] <mfa298> reading some of the FPV stuff about 5.8Ghz and not interferring with wifi I did start wondering if they've thought about the other things they could be interferring with (I think some Radar is in the same band as there's a requirement for wifi to detect radar and change channels if needed)
[12:31] Nick change: KipK -> KipK_away
[12:33] <gonzo___> 2.4gig is the most common band for the RC gear these days
[12:33] <gonzo___> it's not wifi as in 802.11 protocol. think they use fhss
[12:34] <gonzo___> but a 100mw tx in the plane could spoil their day
[12:34] <mfa298> from what some of them were saying it sounds like a lot of them are using 2.4Ghz for the RC and 5.8GHz for video downlink (and often more power than is permitted)
[12:35] <gonzo___> yep,believe so

[12:43] <LeoBodnar> Most consumers think manufacturer is ultimately responsible for RF devices uses. This concept does not work when "manufacturer" = "eBay seller"
[12:43] <Geoff-G8DHE> jcoxon, What callsign does the APRS appear under in habitat, its plotting but nothing shoing in the EPT ?
[12:44] <jcoxon> its plotting direct to spacenear.us
[12:44] <jcoxon> doesn't go via habitat
[12:44] <Geoff-G8DHE> Ah right
[12:44] <gonzo___> and the regulators thing that the manufacturer will vbe respojnsible as they could be hit hard financially. But again that all breaks down when it's all online imports
[12:45] <Geoff-G8DHE> so once gone from the snus the data is no longer available :-(
[12:46] <gonzo___> the general population just lump everything under the heading 'wireless'. Which equites to magic for most

[12:53] <LeoBodnar> indefinitely
[12:55] <Reb-SM3ULC> LeoBodnar: do you have an url or something to info about running dl-fldigi on os x? i only get the mic as input...
[12:55] <eroomde> The reciprocal of Pi to your good wives
[12:55] <Laurenceb> anyone here know the first thing about connecting to windows shares?
[12:55] <Darkside> Reb-SM3ULC: thats weird
[12:55] <Laurenceb> wtf is a "domain"
[12:55] <Darkside> you should be able to select more than that from the list
[12:56] <adamgreig> Reb-SM3ULC: probably need to have portaudio or other sound library available
[12:56] <adamgreig> though if you have microphone as an option...
[12:56] <Laurenceb> like server1.organisation.com ?
[12:56] <adamgreig> you might need to swap the audio input on OS X itself to line in instead of microphone
[12:56] <jcoxon> Reb-SM3ULC, do you have default as well
[12:56] <Darkside> adamgreig: nope
[12:56] <jcoxon> yeah in system preferences->sound->input
[12:56] <Darkside> shouldnt need to
[12:56] <Darkside> but wait. you use OSX, you should know this
[12:56] <jcoxon> Reb-SM3ULC, oh what machine is it?
[12:57] <adamgreig> yea p sure os x has a thing that lets you pick system audio input between mic and line in
[12:57] <Reb-SM3ULC> jcoxon: when i click "portaudio" i can only select "built in mic", nothin more
[12:57] <adamgreig> (my OS X usage is on my macbook air and I can't plug line in into it (don't have the right adapter) so I've only used the microphone anyway...)
[12:57] <Darkside> adamgreig: i can select all th edifferent inputs in dl-fldigi
[12:57] <adamgreig> Reb-SM3ULC: do you have a line in actually connected etc?
[12:57] <Darkside> soundflower, microphone, line-in, whatever
[12:57] <LeoBodnar> I am using Soundflower to route audio from RX into dl-fldigi http://music.tutsplus.com/tutorials/quick-tip-routing-audio-between-applications-using-soundflower--audio-16199

[12:58] <jcoxon> Reb-SM3ULC, are you on a macbook air?
[12:58] <Darkside> soundflower is awsome

[12:59] <jcoxon> with a line in port?
[12:59] <jcoxon> on my mb-air i in portaudio i only have mic + soundflower
[12:59] <mfa298> Laurenceb: Domain generally means Active directory
[12:59] <Laurenceb> ad.organisation.com?
[13:00] <mfa298> if the server is part of AD then it's the AD domain name, if it's not part of AD use the server name
[13:00] <Laurenceb> the server is part of the AD
[13:00] <Laurenceb> so what is the format of the domain in that case?
[13:01] <Reb-SM3ULC> LeoBodnar: oki, i'll try soundflower! thought maybe one could build loop with the native-apple stuff
[13:01] <mfa298> as to what it's called, that depends on the organisation - best bet is to look at a local windows machine that's on the domain and see what opions it has at startup
[13:01] <Laurenceb> ah good plan
[13:01] <Laurenceb> thanks
[13:02] <mfa298> some places it domain == dns domain (bad), others it's org.local, or ad.dnsdomain, or whatifeltlike.wibble
[13:02] <jcoxon> Reb-SM3ULC, soundflower is excellent for a loop back
[13:02] <Reb-SM3ULC> jcoxon: i'll try in a second or three :)

[14:03] <Geoff-G8DHE> Yer I had assumed up to now that it simply grabbed the data and forwarded it to the GE tracker but its obviosuly storing it itself
[14:04] <jcoxon> snus was around before habitat so it can operate independently so its got a mysql database
[14:04] <jcoxon> (well 2)

[17:42] <ak4rp> Thank you! this is still not very definite news about the Wren.
[17:43] <ak4rp> we don't need "bárányhimlQ" here; I just realized the biggest manufacturer of baby care products rutinely uses carcinoges and allergens in the baby care products. Effects are pretty similar to bárányhimlQ :(
[17:45] <ak4rp> Still no confirmed TLEs for Wren, right? What are they using for $50sat?

[21:01] <DL7AD> for your test? are you kiddin me?
[21:02] <LeoBodnar> We have to do compulsory practical exercises before sitting the exam
[21:02] <mfa298> Interestingly I think the wording in the spec is to attach a suitable rf plug to a cable - So I wonder what they'de say if you asked to crimp a bnc to some rg58

[21:03] <LeoBodnar> it's unsuitable. QED. pass

[21:36] <Geoff-G8DHE> other than the inner which if you cut after removing the dielectric tends to splay out!

[21:58] <DL7AD> mfa298: what about this problem: the inner wire does not fit in the pin+
[21:58] <mfa298> you mean the centre conductor and the pin
[21:59] <mfa298> that might mean you bought the wrong connector for the coax
[21:59] <DL7AD> yes
[21:59] <DL7AD> ehm i dont know.... i did not buy it
[21:59] <mfa298> some types of coax (e.g. westflex 103) has a slightly larger centre conductor so needs a special N plug
[21:59] <Geoff-G8DHE> You do need to specify the cable/size when you order plugs/sockets :-(
[22:00] <DL7AD> i didnt buy it :
[22:00] <DL7AD> have to fix it the rude way now
[22:00] <Geoff-G8DHE> What co-ax are you using ?
[22:00] <DL7AD> airxom
[22:00] <DL7AD> aircom
[22:02] <Geoff-G8DHE> RG213 /316 58/U ?
[22:02] Gnea (~gnea@unaffiliated/gnea) joined #highaltitude.
[22:02] <DL7AD> no its aircom plus not rg213 or something like that
[22:02] <DL7AD> but its like rg213
[22:03] <DL1SGP> yeah diameter wise it can be compared to rg213 but less lossy and more expensive
[22:03] <Geoff-G8DHE> yup you need specials see http://www.on4sh.be/ham/coax/
[22:03] EA4GLI (5324af16@gateway/web/freenode/ip. joined #highaltitude.
[22:04] <DL1SGP> sven, if you only plan to setup temporary go for the rude fix, but on a long run I would suggest getting the correct connectors for your coax to ensure taht it will perform as you expect from such expensive stuff :)
[22:04] <mfa298> looks like it's a similar size to Westflex 103
[22:04] <mfa298> so will need special N plugs
[22:04] <mfa298> 2.7mm inner diameter
[22:05] <mfa298> makeup looks similar with partly air spaced dielectric and braid +foil

[22:51] <SpeedEvil> Glass does not break due to even heat.
[22:52] <SpeedEvil> Differential temperature, or differential expansion/contraction against another material it's fixed to will cause issues
[22:52] <SpeedEvil> If you made that out of tempered glass, there would not be a problem.
[22:53] <SpeedEvil> Because that has lots of 'locked in' tension due to the outside of the glass being cooled first, rapidly.

[23:18] <mfa298> and I think most others use some sort of linux system (often a vps hosted somewhere)
[23:19] <mfa298> if you wanted to get into using console based irc clients that could be a good use for a raspberry pi.
