[09:10] <G8APZ> Costly loss?
[09:11] <daveake> It was helium, so yes :p
[09:11] <fsphil> well I didn't expect to get this one back. it was designed to be lost
[09:11] <fsphil> the payload was just a raspberry pi, picam, ublox gps and some lithiums
[09:11] <fsphil> the antenna was spare wire and straws borrowed from mcdonalds
[09:11] <G8APZ> daveake yes I assumed it was the usual stuff plus camera
[09:12] <daveake> just being funny
[09:12] <fsphil> the helium and balloon was definitly the most expensive bit
[09:12] <fsphil> but you don't get those back :)
[09:12] <fsphil> well, you hope you odn't get the balloon back
[09:12] <fsphil> they stink
[09:12] <daveake> and making the point that a Pi + cam is a tiiny part of the cost of a latex flight
[09:12] <G8APZ> surprised
[09:12] <fsphil> hydrogen would improve the situation
[09:13] <daveake> essentially, for a floater, you have to regard the tracker as expendable

[12:07] <LeoBodnar> cool! thank you craag
[12:07] <SpeedEvil> craag: Things that spring out are perhaps a rough scale could be of use (I know about the scale issues), lack of tracking data along the track - can't hover over a point, and perhaps stations should be labelled. Perhaps a summary panel with recievers/... selectable from the layers?
[12:07] <craag> Panning on gmaps is a little broken, waiting for an upstream lib fix on that.

[12:10] <G8APZ> craag it's best light
[12:10] <SpeedEvil> craag: That's a valuable goal.
[12:10] <G8APZ> does what's required
[12:10] <craag> SpeedEvil: Hence the lack of hovering over, as that is *really* memory hungry.

[12:11] <daveake> yes lightweight=good
[12:11] <G8APZ> payload tx freq and mode panel would be useful though
[12:11] <SpeedEvil> But as an actual replacement, not an addition - losing features is an issue.
[12:11] <mfa298> I wonder if some of the tracking points could be added as options - although that might require some serverside bits to change the code.
[12:11] <G8APZ> Ooh - SD3 back!!

[12:13] <SpeedEvil> And yes, that can mean lots of data.
[12:13] <SpeedEvil> Ir's a bit silly that it's all stored hugely inefficiently after parsing into xml
[12:14] <G8APZ> github looks to be typically acedemic... doesn't look intuitive!
[12:14] <G8APZ> academic...oops!
[12:14] <mfa298> I've wondered if the clicking for points could be done via an ajax server request, but that could be a bit slow.
[12:15] <mfa298> maybe the other trick would be to throw some datapoints away, so if it's older than 10 minutes only keep a point every 5 minutes.
[12:15] <G8APZ> user option? provide points or don't?
[12:15] <craag> mfa298: You can currently get all data, or nothing from the server. So not really any point.

[12:31] <G0HDI> Ok, thanks. Coming down a bit early isn't it?
[12:31] <craag> G0HDI: It was launched early.
[12:31] <G0HDI> Oh, ok
[12:31] <S_Mark> 10:30
[12:32] <S_Mark> it launched
[12:32] <mfa298> they didn't apply that much ISH to the announced launch time
[12:32] <S_Mark> it was late
[12:32] <S_Mark> We were meant to launch at 10

[12:33] <S_Mark> This is an 'up and down' G0HDI
[12:33] <craag> S_Mark: Ah ok, I thought I saw something about at 12:00 launch.. but can't find it now, must have imagined it!
[12:33] <daveake> G0HDI Most flights are up-burst-down ones, all over inside 3 hours
[12:34] <mfa298> apart from recently where we seem to have had more floaters.
[12:34] <daveake> This time of year the winds often carry them abroad, so people are mosre likely accept that and do "floaters" instead
[12:34] <craag> Huh, that was Phil's flight I got confused with
[12:34] <G0HDI> Yes i can see that now. Is it commanded to do that. or does the balloon burst at predetermined height?
[12:34] <DL1SGP> S_Mark playing pacman with green circle :)
[12:34] <daveake> iow if you're not going to see the payload again, you might as well make it a long flight
[12:34] <mfa298> either that or they don't want to go traipsing through the countryside in the cold.
[12:35] <daveake> mfa298, It's certainly relaxing to be able to launch and then not have to jump in the car and rush off after it!
[12:35] <G8APZ> craag does the new map recentre on the tracked object?

[12:40] <mfa298> according to the OS maps, ground is about 90m
[12:40] <daveake> Should get an update soon when the car gets closer
[12:40] <mfa298> looks like a good landing spot.
[12:41] <daveake> yup
[12:41] <daveake> S_Mark I suggest you get on that road south of the payload
[12:41] <S_Mark> Ah ok, because of the river/stream?

[12:42] <daveake> Well there's a path leading up from there to pretty close to where the payload probably is
[12:42] <S_Mark> ah ok great thanks
[12:42] <daveake> Not much access from the north because of that river
[12:43] <daveake> You need "Scotchey Lane"

[12:43] <DL1SGP> it should come down in the area of the the intersection Scotchey Ln / Angel Ln (northern intersection)
[12:43] <mfa298> looks like there's footpath or bridleway from both sides nearby (/me hoping he can remember his OS map symbols)
[12:43] <LeoBodnar> updated malgar
[12:44] <daveake> Anyway get close enough for an update first :)
[12:45] <DL1SGP> So prolly leave A30 southbound on Scotchey Hill then turn left (eastbound) on Scotchey Lane that should bring them close to santa's impact crater :)

[16:10] <LeoBodnar> It's good but seams have to be really straight otherwise when they unfold uneven edge creates massive stress points

[16:12] <Geoff-G8DHE> ? Make Cubic ballooons ?

[16:13] <LeoBodnar> I have considered that, it's much easier to weld straight seam
[16:13] <Geoff-G8DHE> or simple tubes with flattened ends ?
[16:13] <LeoBodnar> and you only need two sheets of material
[16:14] <LeoBodnar> it will have a very awkward seam
[16:14] <LeoBodnar> where cylinder meets the disk

[16:16] <LeoBodnar> Aerodynamically great, ascent rate was massive
[16:17] <LeoBodnar> 2.5m/s or so
[16:17] <Geoff-G8DHE> was the tube bertical or horizontal, I assume vertical ?

[16:18] <Laurenceb__> unfortunatly it closed a few years ago
[16:18] <Laurenceb__> theres got to be somewhere with bigger ones
[16:19] <LeoBodnar> It basically needs a shop that can hot seal few m^2 of film
[16:19] <LeoBodnar> With good consistent quality
[16:20] <Laurenceb__> yeah
[16:20] <Laurenceb__> thats not so easy to do
[16:20] <LeoBodnar> In high altitude balloon supertemperature heating becomes the main problem I think
[16:21] <Geoff-G8DHE> Ah just seen B-32 has descended :-(
[16:21] <LeoBodnar> By dropping free lift to almost zero you can bring superpressure down to almost nothing but as the sun comes out it is going to puff up

[19:43] <mfa298> although I think I've seen speed issues discussed more by the sound technicians for big events where they have to put delays in for the various speaker arrays

[20:03] <Upu> mfa298 you're being dangerous using Bing maps
[20:03] <mfa298> mostly the same code, but I've added the start of the status info

[20:03] <Upu> can see the footpaths :)

[20:05] <mfa298> I'd like to replace Bing with the OS Openspaces API as it has more zoom levels including something like 1:1000 (yes only three zeros) but that API seems to be more problematic

[21:07] <esculca> hey everyone
[21:07] <esculca> I'm back
[21:07] <esculca> cheers from Aveiro, Portugal
[21:07] <esculca> sorry to interrupt
[21:08] <esculca> still looking for a way to export data from fl-digi
[21:08] <esculca> any advice?
[21:08] <Upu> hey esculca yes
[21:08] <Upu> http://habhub.org/ept
[21:08] <esculca> good
[21:09] <Upu> for a flight that has happened ?
[21:09] <DL1SGP1> Hi esculca and Upu
[21:09] <Upu> Sorry http://habitat.habhub.org/ept/
[21:09] <Upu> hi there DL1SGP1
[21:09] <esculca> Hi guys
[21:09] <esculca> I am kinda of lost in the habitat
[21:09] <DL1SGP1> oh I got a 1 :) lemme fix that
[21:10] Nick change: DL1SGP1 -> DL1SGP
[21:10] <Upu> are you trying to get data from a flight that has happened ?
[21:11] <esculca> no, I want to be able visualize in a map where my balloon is
[21:11] <esculca> either locally in my pc
[21:11] <esculca> or in this server of yours
[21:11] <Upu> well if you decode and have a payload document
[21:11] <Upu> it appears at http://spacenear.us/tracker
[21:12] <Upu> now locally "offline" some people have done this but I personally don't know how it works
[21:12] <esculca> i see
[21:13] <esculca> I still don't get it
[21:13] <Upu> ok do you have a payload that is transmitting and you are receiving ?
[21:13] <esculca> I have fl-digi 3.21.50
[21:14] <esculca> yes, i do
[21:14] <Upu> ok can you paste me an example decoded string ?
[21:14] <esculca> well, actually i don't have it here with me now, is in the garage
[21:14] <Upu> whats the payload name ?
[21:15] <esculca> but, if I get online in the fl-digi shhould i appear as a listener in spacenear.us/tracker?
[21:15] <esculca> the payload name is BALOONOLO
[21:15] <Upu> yes if the details are filled in correctly in the listener section
[21:15] <esculca> it's a silly name
[21:15] <esculca> in the listener section?
[21:15] <esculca> let me see then...
[21:15] <Upu> yes
[21:16] <Upu> dl-client -> configure -> dl client tab
[21:16] <Upu> Location tab
[21:16] <esculca> that's where I am know..
[21:16] <Upu> Then the operator tab for the call sign etc
[21:17] <esculca> I just filled out the coordinates
[21:17] <esculca> and the callsign and name
[21:17] <esculca> what else?
[21:18] <esculca> An antenna should appear on top of my location (Portugal)?
[21:18] <Upu> it should yes
[21:18] <Upu> save it
[21:18] <Upu> reopen dl-fldigi
[21:18] <Upu> you're there
[21:19] <Upu> near Pampilhosa da Serra
[21:19] <Upu> no it moved
[21:19] <Upu> Luso
[21:19] <esculca> I dont' see anything...
[21:19] <Upu> its cached but you are on the map
[21:19] <Upu> thats a good location
[21:19] <Upu> we could do with you#
[21:20] <esculca> funny...
[21:20] <DL1SGP> yeah nice location!
[21:20] <esculca> those were the coordinates I input
[21:21] <esculca> though it is not exactly my location
[21:21] <esculca> but that is my fault
[21:21] <esculca> I input the wrong coordintates
[21:21] <DL1SGP> well, gives you a bit of privacy :)
[21:21] <esculca> but nevertheless, why don't I see it in the map and you do?
[21:21] <esculca> :)
[21:21] <esculca> c'mon...
[21:21] <Reb-SM3ULC> reload?
[21:22] <DL1SGP> try to force a refresh CTRL+R or CTRL+F5 on whatever browser you are using
[21:23] <esculca> internet explorer...
[21:23] <esculca> any issue?
[21:23] <DL1SGP> by definition :)
[21:23] <esculca> ok, got it now
[21:23] <esculca> :)
[21:24] <esculca> just closed and re-open internet explorer
[21:24] <esculca> I see my antenna
[21:24] <Upu> put IE in compatibilty mode
[21:24] <esculca> :)
[21:25] <daveake> Use IE to download a proper browser
[21:25] <arko> as anyone heard from MobileNathan recently?
[21:26] <esculca> :)
[21:26] <esculca> IE is a proper browser c'mon
[21:26] <daveake> if you say so
[21:26] <arko> LOL
[21:26] <esculca> IT has been working since the 1990'
[21:27] <arko> define working
[21:27] <esculca> :)
[21:27] <daveake> so has my car but it still needs replacing
[21:27] <esculca> let's now compare cars with browswers
[21:27] <DL1SGP> arko, nothing heard from MobileNathan on this end
[21:27] <esculca> not*
[21:27] <arko> ah
[21:27] <esculca> ok guys...
[21:28] <arko> damn, im trying to get ahold of him
[21:28] <esculca> so now, if I want to send my position what should I do
[21:28] <esculca> should I follow any kind of telemetry sentence
[21:28] <esculca> ?
[21:28] <DL1SGP> if he is a hardcore IRC user with registered nick and memo service being active you could try leaving him a memo @ arko
[21:28] <arko> yeah
[21:29] <esculca> ok...
[21:29] <esculca> seems that I am the only lestener around here
[21:29] <esculca> listener
[21:30] <DL1SGP> for now that is true esculca, but you are welcome to activate more people in Portugal

[21:33] <esculca> I started this project almost a year ago
[21:33] <esculca> unfortunatelly, many things happened along the way
[21:34] <esculca> and I was unable to work on it
[21:34] <esculca> but last week I get back to it
[21:34] <esculca> and managed to make everything work
[21:35] <esculca> except this map part of it
[21:35] <esculca> still some doubts
[21:35] <esculca> one for istance is the antenna
[21:35] <esculca> I am using a quarter wave antenna
[21:37] <esculca> (just updated my location)
[21:37] <esculca> now you can see where I am now on spacenear.us

[21:38] <Laurenceb__> http://i.imgur.com/QAbrc53.gif
[21:38] <mfa298> esculca: a well made 1/4 wave antenna can work well - That's what most UK people use on their balloons and what I use at home to receive them.

[21:40] <LeoBodnar> hahaha
[21:40] <esculca> do you think I can receive telemetry here in Portugal?
[21:40] <esculca> from other people?

[21:40] <esculca> I just built a yagi antenna to receive my own telemetry
[21:41] <esculca> should I point it out to the sky to hear telemetry from other people?
[21:41] <DL1SGP> *rofl* Laurenceb__
[21:42] <DL1SGP> escula, if there is a payload coming by you should be able to hear it just fine
[21:42] <mfa298> esculca: it depends on where the balloon is, for ones on the 70cm band (434MHz) it's generally limited to line of site.
[21:42] <mfa298> you might need to wait for Leo to launch another balloon, they seem to visit all parts of Europe.
[21:42] <esculca> any plans for any of you to send a ballon around here?
[21:42] <Upu> all the time esculca
[21:43] <esculca> who's LEo?
[21:43] <esculca> :)
[21:43] <Upu> Leo does floaters one went past you a few days ago
[21:43] Action: Upu points at LeoBodnar
[21:43] <esculca> feel free to stop by Portugal then
[21:43] <LeoBodnar> me
[21:43] <esculca> I am planning to send mine soon
[21:43] <esculca> here in Portugal
[21:43] <Upu> also
[21:43] <esculca> if you want to come over and send it feel free
[21:43] <Upu> a transatlantic attempt in the next day or so
[21:44] <esculca> that is great
[21:44] <Upu> may make land fall near Portugal
[21:44] <esculca> should I set the antenna then?
[21:44] <LeoBodnar> there were few launches in Spain earlier this year that you would have been able to receive
[21:44] <Upu> its likely to launch tomorrow around 2300UTC from Rochester, NY
[21:45] <Upu> just depends on the weather
[21:45] <esculca> too bad I missed those
[21:45] <LeoBodnar> I am sure there will be more
[21:45] <daveake> There'll be more in Spain next yer

[21:47] <esculca> ok, let ma see if I can add my email
[21:47] <daveake> Whereabouts in Portugal are you esculca ?
[21:48] <esculca> In a city called Aveiro

[21:48] <daveake> Ah cool
[21:49] <daveake> I've been to Guimaraes a couple of times
[21:49] <esculca> nice city too
[21:49] <esculca> but Aveiro is nicer
[21:49] <daveake> :)
[21:49] <daveake> This was work
[21:49] <esculca> not a good place to send balloons as 100% of the time they will end in the Atlantic
[21:49] <Geoff-G8DHE> Hi Baldwinwill, ask away some one will start replying to you!
[21:50] <esculca> nevertheless it a beautiful place for other stuff, sailing for instance
[21:50] <esculca> Guimaraes doing what Dave?
[21:50] <Baldwinwill> I was wondering If I could have someone check over my code or give me some advice
[21:51] <Geoff-G8DHE> Well if you make it available somewhere where people can look at it ... or just ask away
[21:52] <Baldwinwill> Im am getting GPS using a spark fun venus gps receiver and am using a radiometrix 434.65 Hz transmitter
[21:52] <Baldwinwill> as well as an arduino to process everything
[21:53] <Geoff-G8DHE> OK does the GPS work at the heights you intend to go ? Most have limits on the height they will work at
[21:53] <Baldwinwill> I am using a Ham Radio to pick up the transmissions then DI-fldigi to decode then spacenearus to track
[21:53] <Baldwinwill> yes, the gps does work
[21:53] <Geoff-G8DHE> Sounds the best way, what part of the world are you in ?
[21:54] <Baldwinwill> Im in california
[21:54] <Geoff-G8DHE> Ah near arko then
[21:54] <mfa298> Baldwinwill: have you checked it will work at HAB altitudes most GPS modules cut out at 18km, HAB's have been up to 44KM.
[21:54] <Baldwinwill> supposedly it does
[21:54] <Baldwinwill> I have consulted others who have successfully used it
[21:55] <Baldwinwill> my problem starts once I want to use Di-fldigi
[21:55] Theo (6d9bff24@gateway/web/freenode/ip. left irc: Quit: Page closed
[21:55] <Baldwinwill> everything works up to there
[21:55] <Geoff-G8DHE> what goes wrong then ?
[21:55] <Baldwinwill> I can hear the tones on the ham
[21:55] <Baldwinwill> but am wondering how to set up di-fldigi to process the tones
[21:56] <DL1SGP> what are you using as mode?
[21:56] <DL1SGP> rtty?
[21:56] <Baldwinwill> yes
[21:56] <Baldwinwill> I believe so
[21:56] <Geoff-G8DHE> your using RTTY then 50 Baud 7/8bit what sort of shift ?
[21:56] <Baldwinwill> Im not sure
[21:56] <Baldwinwill> In fairly new to this stuff
[21:57] <Geoff-G8DHE> well 300Hz to 450Hz is common for the shifts
[21:57] <Baldwinwill> ok
[21:57] <Geoff-G8DHE> have you configured dl-fldifi yet ?
[21:57] <Baldwinwill> np
[21:57] <Baldwinwill> no*
[21:57] <mfa298> your code should define the baud rate and bits sent and the electronics generally determine shift

[21:59] <Geoff-G8DHE> select the Location sub-tab
[21:59] <Geoff-G8DHE> fill out the Stainary Listener section
[21:59] <Geoff-G8DHE> that bit puts you on the spacenear.us map
[22:00] <Baldwinwill> yes, I am

[22:00] <Baldwinwill> I followed both previously
[22:00] <Baldwinwill> didn't work
[22:00] <Baldwinwill> so Im reconfiguring now
[22:00] <Baldwinwill> ok
[22:00] <Baldwinwill> I just reconfigured

[22:01] <Geoff-G8DHE> Now anything which is successfully decoded will be sent to the servers and displayed
[22:01] <Baldwinwill> ok
[22:01] <Baldwinwill> Do I need to register a payload or anything>
[22:02] <Geoff-G8DHE> when you ready getting ready for a flight then you need to fill out a Paylod docuument etc. so that the data is stored permanaently
[22:02] mclane (~uli@pD9E2C0C5.dip0.t-ipconnect.de) left irc: Quit: Verlassend
[22:02] <mfa298> you might need to create a payload doc for it to be displayed on the spacenear.us map, but dl-fldigi will decode without a payload doc

[22:03] <bbjunkie> TH-F6 wont be very suitable for receiving your data on USB

[22:03] <Geoff-G8DHE> and then ask for it to be authorised bestdone on the #habhub IRC channel where all the IT talk goes ;-)
[22:04] <bbjunkie> mfa298 - they dont have proper SSB, correct me if im wrong
[22:04] <mfa298> it had a wideband multimode reciever (at least the F7 does)
[22:05] laudenclar (cfe81b05@gateway/web/freenode/ip. left irc: Ping timeout: 250 seconds
[22:05] <mfa298> not as sensitive as some of the other radios but it does work
[22:05] <bbjunkie> yep I have the F7e
[22:06] <bbjunkie> SSB sounds terrible on them
[22:06] <DL1SGP> well the SSB filters are a bit "wide"
[22:07] <mfa298> I'd put them in the same camp as the rtl-sdr's for sensitivity (although a lot more portable for dfing)
[22:07] <mattbrejza> Upu: around?
[22:07] <Upu> I am
[22:07] <DL1SGP> :)
[22:07] <mattbrejza> i was comparing the max7c to max6 yday, and the max7 modules seem to be worse at getting lock
[22:07] <Upu> 7C's are slower yes
[22:07] <Upu> 7Q's shouldn't be
[22:07] <mattbrejza> how much slower?
[22:08] <Upu> not much tbh
[22:08] <Upu> few seconds
[22:08] <mattbrejza> and once they have lock should the max7c have better DOP and so on?
[22:08] <Baldwinwill> Im still struggling to get this working
[22:08] <Upu> once locked they should be about the same but the 7Q will get lock quicker
[22:08] <Geoff-G8DHE> Baldwinwill, Have you listened to any telematry yet on the Rx ?
[22:08] <Upu> and has better power saving
[22:08] <DL1SGP> what is the issue Baldwinwill?
[22:08] <Upu> which is ofset by the 7C running @ 1.8V
[22:09] <Baldwinwill> When I plug the audio from the Radio I see the audio on the viewing screen but thats it
[22:09] <mattbrejza> well i powered a max6 abd max7 up, and after about 20min the max6 had had lock for at least 18min, but nothing from the max7
[22:09] <Upu> antenna ?
[22:09] <mattbrejza> chip
[22:09] <mattbrejza> on both
[22:09] <Geoff-G8DHE> you need to select the OpMode as RTTY
[22:09] <Upu> something up with the antenna they aren't that much worse
[22:09] <Geoff-G8DHE> with whatever speed
[22:09] <mattbrejza> yea i was thinking antenna too
[22:10] <mattbrejza> are the latest batch of chip antenans you got in recently different to the ones you used to stock?
[22:10] <Geoff-G8DHE> then you can set the details either from the Config|Modems tab or right click on the RTTY in lower left corner to set the details
[22:10] <mattbrejza> or is the max7 worse with a chip antenna?
[22:10] <mfa298> Baldwinwill: you might need to tune around a bit with the radio set to upper side band first to find the signal
[22:10] <mfa298> if it's sending rtty it should sounds something like http://tenbus.co.uk/icaruscapture.mp3
[22:10] <mattbrejza> once the max7 eventially got lock this is the comparision: http://i.imgur.com/Ef5dESC.png
[22:11] Brian85 (~Brian85@ joined #highaltitude.
[22:11] <Baldwinwill> Can I email you my code to take a look at it
[22:11] PE2G (Miranda@a83-161-208-176.adsl.xs4all.nl) left #highaltitude.
[22:11] <Baldwinwill> Im not sure if I have the parameters set up right for DI-fldigi to operate with it
[22:12] <mfa298> best place to put code is somewhere like github then various people can look at it - you can also use it to track versions (great when you break something)
[22:12] <Upu> not sure mattbrejza under same conditions there should be seconds in it
[22:12] <Upu> I've see them take 20 mins sometimes
[22:12] <Geoff-G8DHE> Best to check with a scope on the output to check timings and voltage shifts
[22:12] <Upu> usually when satellites are low
[22:12] <Upu> but its nearly always something up with the antenna
[22:12] <mattbrejza> well the two modules were literally next to each other
[22:12] <mattbrejza> and they had a good view of the sky
[22:13] <mattbrejza> so its probably the antenna
[22:13] <mattbrejza> but both breakouts i have do the same
[22:13] <mattbrejza> (both max7 ones)
[22:13] <Upu> I haven't seen that issue on the breakout board at all
[22:13] <Upu> had lots of issues with the older Sarantel boards until I fixed the pads
[22:14] <mattbrejza> did you test the boards to see if they get lock before you send them out?
[22:14] <Upu> always
[22:14] <Upu> I don't send "slow lockers" out
[22:14] <Upu> but never had a slow locking chip antenna board they just tend to work
[22:14] <Upu> send them back
[22:15] <Upu> I'll have a look at them
[22:15] <Upu> just do me a favour check them somewhere totally geographically distant to the initial test location
[22:15] <Upu> just to rule out interference
[22:15] <mattbrejza> ill give them another go tomorrow/tue and see what happens
[22:16] <mattbrejza> i was wodering if there was something local
[22:16] <mattbrejza> but weird the max6 is fine
[22:16] <Upu> it has a TCXO in the 7C doesn't
[22:16] <Upu> don't know if that makes a difference
[22:16] <SP3OSJ> #habhub
[22:17] <mattbrejza> mind you once it gets the time from the satellites the TCXO thing should be no issue?
[22:18] <mattbrejza> this was after 20min, i cant see how a non TCXO would make it this much worse: http://i.imgur.com/ZevxARv.png

[22:28] <mfa298> Baldwinwill: what bit on the arduino is the NTX2 connected to ?

[22:29] <Baldwinwill> 10
[22:29] <Baldwinwill> Here is my post in the google group: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/ukhas/v860HojwOqg
[22:29] <mfa298> I was just reading it
[22:29] <mfa298> so GPS module connected to the hardware serial port and then using software serial for the NTX2 - is that right ?
[22:30] <Baldwinwill> yeah
[22:30] <mfa298> although your code looks more like your reading the gps via software serial on pins 10&11
[22:31] <mfa298> software serial at 9600 is likely to fast to do over a radio link
[22:32] <mfa298> the standard approach is to connect the gps to the hardware serial port and then toggle a pin to send the rtty at 50/300/600 baud (starting at 50 is usually best)
[22:32] <Baldwinwill> I'm reading gps output via pin 10 then using pin 1 (tx) as the input to the transmitter
[22:32] <mfa298> the guide here takes you through connecting it up and the code to sent rtty http://ukhas.org.uk/guides:linkingarduinotontx2
[22:32] <daveake> You're filling in "datastring" then computing a CRC for "datastringchar"
[22:33] <daveake> Also not sure why you're mixing C++ strings and C string handling
[22:33] <Baldwinwill> datastringchar is data string just as a character array with the checksum included on the end
[22:33] <mfa298> Baldwinwill: I think that means you're using software serial to read the gps and then trying to use the hardware serial port to send rtty at 9600 baud which isn't going to work
[22:33] <daveake> and yes use h/w serial for the GPS
[22:34] <daveake> and bin s/w serial altogether - use the code in the wiki for the rtty send
[22:34] <LeoBodnar> you didn't rub out all coords mattbrejza ;)
[22:34] <Baldwinwill> ok
[22:34] <daveake> datastringchar isn't declared so it's a td difficult to help
[22:35] <mattbrejza> meh :P, noones house is secret due to payload testing anyway
[22:35] <mfa298> if you've got the ntx2 connected directly to the arduino with no resistor network the shift will be around 6KHz which is too high for any radio - you need the resistor network that's on that wiki page to make the shift more reasonable
[22:36] <Baldwinwill> How would you go about fixing this to actually work?
[22:36] <daveake> start with the wiki
[22:36] <daveake> and work up from there
[22:36] <Baldwinwill> ok
[22:36] <LeoBodnar> Does anybody have ICOM IC-756PROIII here?
