[00:00] <mikestir> might do - the spectrum of an FM signal involves bessel functions
[00:00] <ike> or it look like this http://www.nti-online.de/95_5_MHz_radio_charivari_wasserfall-600.jpg ?
[00:00] <ike> mikestir I don't know what is bessel function
[00:01] <ike> "Bessel's equation arises when finding separable solutions to Laplace's equation and the Helmholtz equation in cylindrical or spherical coordinates."
[00:01] <ike> I've heard some of those words
[00:01] <ike> but it's dangerous to go there
[00:02] <mfa298> g4sgx_lappy: I think uC in a polystyrene ball is how a lot of the Pava boards get used. Not sure about Pi's although if you use a model-A and change the linear reg to a smps there should be less heating issues.
[00:02] <eroomde> there's a fine approximation for the bandwidth of fm
[00:02] <mikestir> just think of it as having been modulated twice. For RTTY there are two frequencies at RF - one for mark and one for space. For AFSK the mark and space frequencies are generated at audio frequency and modulated up to RF in a second, unrelated step
[00:02] <eroomde> one sec
[00:02] <mikestir> carson's rule eroomde
[00:02] <eroomde> thanks
[00:02] <mikestir> 2*(deviation + highest modulating freq)
[00:03] <g4sgx_lappy> mfa98: ok thanks Im using a PIC so might go with a 6" ball and make sure it doesnt overheat at room temp.
[00:04] <ike> g4sgx_lappy msp430 are cheap and crappy mcus but the add say that they sleep at several nA

[00:12] <g4sgx_lappy> Havn't investigated sleep power saving as yet but the PIC deep sleeps at 100nA if activated.
[00:13] <ike> can you wake up from 100nA
[00:13] <ike> ot it need external signal?
[00:14] <g4sgx_lappy> Nope, all by software
[00:15] <g4sgx_lappy> but i think it has to be an interupt or I/o/timer obviously, havent had too good a look as yet.
[00:15] <ike> with 2V and 100nA I can promise no overheat
[00:16] <g4sgx_lappy> cool. now looking up the sleep thingy..
[00:17] <mikestir> ike: I think you'll find that's with all the oscillators off - it's more like 500nA to be able to self-wake (which is still really good)
[00:18] <mikestir> current PICs and AVRs are comparable though - the MSP430 really is particularly good in terms of run current (MIPS per uA)
[00:18] <g4sgx_lappy> 80nA. Exit ny real time clock or interupt
[00:18] <g4sgx_lappy> *by
[00:19] <g4sgx_lappy> think ill go for the clock
[00:19] <ike> how much current does real time clock eat? 80nA?
[00:20] <ike> mikestir you can't have all oscillators off and self-wake at the same time
[00:20] <mikestir> I know - that was my point
[00:20] <mikestir> 100nA is all oscs off, so you can't self wake from that
[00:22] <g4sgx_lappy> yeh it states 290-460nA for Deep sleep Watchdog timer
[00:23] <ike> but for me 100 and 500nA is the same
[00:24] <mikestir> depends on your application. one is 5 times worse - if you are doing a sensor node that harvests its energy from the environment then you might care
[00:25] <g4sgx_lappy> I suspect I will have to use wake by USART (foe the GPS) which is I think normal sleep mode, but still with usable savings.
[00:26] <mikestir> you should be able to sleep the cpu while leaving the peripherals enabled, waking on interrupt
[00:26] <mikestir> anyway. work tomorrow :( gn all
[00:26] <ike> mikestir night
[00:26] <ike> and 10x
[00:28] <g4sgx_lappy> nite.. Yes there are 3 levels of sleep on the pic, many can wake by interupt, peripherals etc but use more current obviously. Will need to work out the duty cyclkes etc

[00:31] <ike> g4sgx_lappy if you have modern GPS you can play with it's features
[00:32] <ike> you can setup GPS module to sleep and auto awake every 2 minutes and send 1 GPS set of data
[00:33] <g4sgx_lappy> Yep a data ready interupt would be possible instead of polling also. I'll leave that 'extreme power saving' techniques til laters. gotta go.. cyas.

[02:22] <Joel_re> hey
[02:22] <Joel_re> anyone awake?
[02:28] <Darkside> well given its 1pm in australia, ys
[02:28] <Darkside> yes**
[02:28] <Joel_re> hello :)
[02:29] <Joel_re> Im trying to hook up the ublox7Q gps module
[02:29] <Darkside> mhmm
[02:29] <Joel_re> do I need to connect anything more than RXD, power supply, gnd?
[02:29] <Joel_re> it should just spit out gps data right?
[02:30] <Darkside> it outputs data on the TXD pin
[02:30] <Darkside> and receives data on the RXD pin
[02:30] <Darkside> those labels are referring to the ublox
[02:30] <Darkside> so you want to hook the RXD of the ublox modules to the TXD of the arduino/whatever
[02:30] <Darkside> and vice versa for TXD
[02:30] <Joel_re> yep, I meant TXD
[02:30] <Joel_re> double checked that :)
[02:31] <Darkside> and you do want to hook up both the modules TXD and RXD lines, else you want set the module into flight mode
[02:31] <Joel_re> so there is some initialization needed?
[02:31] <Darkside> not to get it running in noemal mode
[02:31] <Darkside> normal*
[02:31] <Darkside> you should be able to apply power and have data come out the TXD pin
[02:32] <Darkside> are your logic levels correct?
[02:32] <Joel_re> hmm, I do have power, TXD, GND hooked up fine
[02:32] <Joel_re> yes, this is a msp430 board so its all 3.3V
[02:32] <Darkside> ok
[02:32] <Joel_re> Im probably doing something wrong
[02:32] <Darkside> then it should be outputting data
[02:32] <Joel_re> Ill check again
[02:32] <Darkside> put a LED on the PPS pin
[02:32] <Joel_re> wish there was some indication of life
[02:32] <Darkside> see if thats blinking
[02:33] <Joel_re> ah ok
[02:33] <Joel_re> let me try that
[02:33] <Darkside> or is thre no PPS pin on that breakout
[02:34] <Joel_re> I made the breakout without a PPS header, I'll check with the multimeter hooked to the pin
[02:36] <Darkside> if you're not using the RXD pin, mayb ground it
[02:36] <Darkside> as the ublox may receive noise on that pin if its floating

[02:39] <ike> Joel_re didn't you finish your project already
[02:40] <Joel_re> ike: no, it was stalled .. I was testing with the mtk3339 gps module
[02:40] <Joel_re> was waiting for the max7q module
[02:40] <ike> mtk3339 are great modules
[02:40] <ike> it have a ton of features
[02:40] <Joel_re> only until 18k feet
[02:41] <Joel_re> or was it meters
[02:41] <Darkside> and even the adafruit one with the 'special firmware!!' doesnt go above 28km
[02:41] <Joel_re> hrm
[02:41] <Darkside> Upu tested that
[02:41] <Joel_re> so I dont seem to have a pulse
[02:41] <Darkside> ah
[02:41] <Joel_re> ah
[02:42] <Darkside> you're feeding powr to all appropriate pins?
[02:42] <Joel_re> just to pin 8
[02:42] <Joel_re> is that wrong?
[02:42] <ike> Vcc and GND right?
[02:42] <Darkside> i think theres 3 pins you need to feed it to
[02:42] <Darkside> hold on, ill bring up the datasheet
[02:42] <Joel_re> ike: yes VCC, gnd is right
[02:43] <Joel_re> http://www.u-blox.com/en/gps-modules/pvt-modules/neo-7.html
[02:43] <Darkside> err

[02:43] <Joel_re> I am looking at the right datasheet though
[02:44] <Darkside> right
[02:44] Last message repeated 1 time(s).
[02:44] <Darkside> VCC_IO neds to be conncted to VCC
[02:44] <ike> Joel_re how much does it cost in US dollars
[02:44] <ike> so IO output to module TX pin?
[02:44] <Darkside> and V_BCKP neds to be either grounded, hooked to VCC, or hookd to a battery

[02:45] <Joel_re> Darkside: oh ok
[02:45] <Joel_re> noted
[02:45] <Darkside> Joel_re: the VCC_IO one is probably most important
[02:45] <ike> Darkside can it be hooked to Vcc via 1n4148 diode and large cap?
[02:45] <Darkside> ike: no
[02:45] <Darkside> shush
[02:45] <ike> why?
[02:45] <Joel_re> ike: I got it for around 12USD
[02:46] <ike> Joel_re that is cheap
[02:46] Action: Joel_re goes back to eagle
[02:46] <Darkside> VCC_IO sets the output and input logic level voltages
[02:46] <ike> good score
[02:46] <Darkside> so you just set it to VCC
[02:46] <Darkside> Joel_re: in most of my designs i just connect pins 6,7,8 to VCC
[02:46] <ike> Darkside I mean for V_BCKP
[02:46] <Darkside> ike: oh right
[02:46] <Darkside> maybe
[02:46] <Darkside> i generally dont use it
[02:47] <ike> there are LDOs with ebable pin
[02:47] <Joel_re> Darkside: I'll do that
[02:47] <Darkside> i just wire it to VCC, since the gps is generally going to be on all the time anyway
[02:47] <Darkside> Joel_re: im not sure about RESET_N
[02:47] <ike> so you can power on and off module to save battery life
[02:47] <Darkside> ill have to check
[02:47] <Darkside> ike: yah, but in a HAB you may mov far enough that the ephemeris is invalid anyway
[02:47] <ike> you can set it to sleep mode too
[02:48] <Darkside> and you have to rewodnload it
[02:48] <Joel_re> ike: for a cheap camera look at the max808 spy cam
[02:48] <Joel_re> s/max//
[02:48] <Darkside> ike: the power saving modes work well enough anyway
[02:48] <Darkside> Joel_re: you mean the 808 gps jammers?
[02:48] <Darkside> :P
[02:49] <Joel_re> Darkside: no, these - http://www.chucklohr.com/808/index.shtml
[02:49] <Darkside> Upu found that out the hard way
[02:49] <Joel_re> they are cheap
[02:49] <Darkside> yes
[02:49] <Darkside> they act as gps jammers
[02:49] <Joel_re> woa?
[02:49] <Darkside> yep
[02:49] <Joel_re> how?
[02:49] <Darkside> at close range anyway
[02:49] <Darkside> probably a multiple of the clock
[02:49] <Darkside> harmonic*
[02:49] <Joel_re> oh damn, thanks
[02:50] <Joel_re> they are so cheap and light :\

[02:50] <ike> Joel_re if you have free pin then you can turn them on and off
[02:50] <Darkside> ike: not a good idea
[02:50] <Darkside> dont put it aywhre near your GPS
[02:50] <Darkside> if you want your GPS to work, that is
[02:50] <Joel_re> ike: thats what I planned
[02:51] <Joel_re> I was going to hook 3
[02:51] <Darkside> maybe in another box a few metres below
[02:51] <Joel_re> and use the uC to control them
[02:51] <Darkside> but also TEST TEST TEST
[02:51] <Joel_re> Darkside: thanks for the link
[02:51] <Darkside> its possible that not all of them act as GPS jammers
[02:51] <Darkside> some might be ok
[02:52] <Joel_re> I could check with my SDR usb dongle
[02:52] <ike> maybe if you GND them in copper foil
[02:52] <Darkside> no, check with the GPS
[02:52] <Darkside> thats what you care about
[02:52] <ike> GPS is -160dbm and your SDR is -70dbm
[02:52] <ike> get it
[02:52] <Darkside> pretty much
[02:52] <Joel_re> hmm ok, do I need ia GPS antenna?
[02:52] <Darkside> err
[02:53] <Darkside> on the gps, ys you do
[02:53] <Darkside> yes*
[02:53] <ike> that is not true
[02:53] <Darkside> uhh
[02:53] <Darkside> to get GPS lock you probably will
[02:53] <ike> if you fly to the satelites you don't need one
[02:53] <Joel_re> the MTK3339 recieves a lock inside my room
[02:53] <Darkside> well, to get *reiable* gps lock
[02:53] <Darkside> ike: thats not a usful suggestion
[02:53] <Darkside> Joel_re: the MTK3339 receiver probably has a patch antenna and a LNA, right?
[02:54] <Joel_re> Darkside: true
[02:54] <Darkside> so thats going to work much better inside
[02:54] <Darkside> the ublox module with a chip or helical antenna will be less sensitiv
[02:54] <Darkside> it'll work fine on a balloon of cours

[06:51] <jcoxon> hey wb8elk
[06:52] <Upu> morning all
[06:54] <wb8elk> Hi All
[06:54] <jcoxon> how is everything?
[06:55] <wb8elk> It's morning here but just barely
[06:55] <jcoxon> yes, very early for you
[06:55] <jcoxon> wb8elk, any launches coming up?
[06:56] <wb8elk> once all the blizzards and nasty weather calms down I'll try to send some payloads your way
[06:56] <Upu> its not exactly nice here
[06:56] <wb8elk> probably won't be able to fly anything this weekend...20 knot plus winds and extremely cold
[06:59] <Upu> I have a tracker hanging from a tree in the back garden, testing battery and I'm not going to get it back at this time
[06:59] <Upu> as its driving rain
[07:01] <wb8elk> It would ice over here....it was snowing earlier here in the deep South of the US, that is a rare event.
[07:02] zsentinel (~zsentinel@unaffiliated/zsentinel) left irc: Ping timeout: 246 seconds
[07:03] <Upu> I want it to snow, I put some winter tyres on my car and ever since its sat stubbornly above 8'C
[07:03] <wb8elk> Since I gave some small quadcopters as Christmas gifts this year, I came up with an interesting way to keep multiple foil balloons from reaching peak burst altitude during peak solar times.
[07:04] <wb8elk> There is a tiny quadcopter with about and ounce of lift that weighs 15 grams. My idea is to put one of these underneath multiple mylar balloons and have it automatically turn on (facing upside down) to pull the balloons below their peak altitude during the mid part of the day.
[07:05] <wb8elk> since that seems to be the time of day when foil balloons have the toughest time of it.
[07:06] <jcoxon> wb8elk, http://ivoryultimate.blogspot.co.uk/
[07:06] <wb8elk> If the Sun ever decides to show it's face again, I'll test it out to see if I can solar panel the tiny quadcopter.

[07:40] <qyx_> have you seen this? http://www.batteryjunction.com/xeno-1-2aa-lithium-3-6v.html
[07:40] <qyx_> or any other thionyl chloride lithium batteries
[07:40] <qyx_> these from xeno are rated down to -55C
[07:41] <UpuWork> yeah
[07:41] <qyx_> although lower maximum current at low temperatures
[07:41] <UpuWork> http://ukhas.org.uk/ideas:power_supply
[07:41] <UpuWork> see top
[07:41] <UpuWork> Maximum Current: Continuous 30mA; Pulse 60mA
[07:41] <UpuWork> thats your issue
[07:42] <qyx_> ah
[07:43] <qyx_> the bulkier ones are capable of higher currents
[07:44] <qyx_> 9.2g xeno has Maximum Continuous Current
[07:44] <qyx_> 50mA
[07:44] <qyx_> the full AA version 100mA
[07:49] <UpuWork> its the usual thing though
[07:49] <UpuWork> you'll be better off with an Energizer Lithium

[07:54] <Darkside> i looked at those batteries ages ago
[07:54] <Darkside> mainly the ones by Saft
[07:55] <Darkside> there was a D cell size battery with a 15Ah capacity
[07:55] <Darkside> though max drain was around 30mA
[07:56] <qyx_> see XL-200F
[07:56] <qyx_> D size 16.5Ah
[07:56] <qyx_> 230mA
[07:56] <Darkside> weight?
[07:56] <qyx_> 92.5g
[07:57] <Darkside> right
[07:57] <Darkside> we get 21Ah of capacity from the same weight of energizer lithiums
[07:57] es5nhc (~tarmo@178-21-244-214.wmx.levira.ee) joined #highaltitude.
[07:57] <Darkside> so in terms of energy density, the energizer lithium AAs are still better
[07:57] <qyx_> at 3.6V?
[07:57] <Darkside> ahh no
[07:58] <Darkside> nevermind then :P
[07:58] <Darkside> that wins
[07:58] <Darkside> still, 92.5g is heavy
[07:58] <Darkside> might be suitable for a 1600g floater
[07:58] <qyx_> maybe, but at -40C they are capable of only 100mA
[07:58] <Darkside> mm
[07:58] <Darkside> th energizers dont lose capacity at -50 i believe
[07:59] <qyx_> don't know
[07:59] <qyx_> i was just searching for other things when i saw these
[07:59] <gurgalof> would be fun to measure the capacity in -50C
[07:59] <qyx_> there are graphs in the datasheet
[07:59] <qyx_> even at -30
[08:00] LWK (~LWK@pdpc/supporter/student/lwk) left irc: Ping timeout: 240 seconds
[08:01] <UpuWork> I suspect the temps the glider saw last weekend were giving the energizers some trouble
[08:01] <gurgalof> next time I'm playing with liquid nitrogen I will see how the energizer lithium performs in -196C :D
[08:01] <UpuWork> with think it got to -65
[08:02] <UpuWork> s/with/we
[08:02] <gurgalof> I could measure one in dry ice, -78C

[08:32] <UpuWork> well RFM22B does work

[08:34] <gurgalof> 100mW and they are cheap, it's a little sad they're EOL
[08:35] <gurgalof> since I'm in a country that allows amateur radio in the air I can transmit at full power
[08:36] <eroomde> whack a PA infront
[08:36] <UpuWork> well
[08:36] <UpuWork> just watch 100mW
[08:36] <Darkside> its not very clean at 100mW
[08:36] <UpuWork> they do wobble a bit under full power
[08:36] <eroomde> i know it's been done a few times in the UK on the down-low
[08:36] <Darkside> dat second harmonic
[08:36] <Darkside> also yes, the heat from the PA causes bad drift
[08:36] <Darkside> gurgalof: what country?
[08:36] <gurgalof> Sweden
[08:36] <Darkside> aha

[08:37] <eroomde> excellent, more swedes is a good thing

[08:37] <eroomde> gurgalof: where in sweden?
[08:37] <gurgalof> gothenburg
[08:37] <eroomde> I was in uppsala for a bit
[08:37] <eroomde> and liked it a lot
[08:38] <daveake> I'll be in Landskrona in a couple of weeks
[08:39] <gurgalof> I've been in UK once, Glasgow/Scottland
[08:39] <eroomde> ah, gothenburg is also excellent located for intercepting north-sea habs

[08:42] <eroomde> so are you a radio ham?
[08:42] <gurgalof> yes
[08:43] <eroomde> cool
[08:48] <eroomde> hivemind/lazyweb/whatever: I'm looking to get a tv in my life. I want a 32" one with decent pictures and ideally >=3 HDMI connections, and i really don't care about the rest, and especially don't care about any built-in medium-hub type stuff, as I'll build an external one. But i would like a freeview tuner. Can anyone recommend anything?
[08:50] <daveake> They'll all have freeview now. I think most will have >=3 HDMI but that's worth checking.
[08:50] <daveake> We went for a Sony because at the time* it had the best internet stuff (iPlayer etc)
[08:50] <daveake> *this situation changes monthly
[08:50] <eroomde> yes, and also i'm less interested in any of the built-in stuff
[08:51] <eroomde> we have a 'smart' lg tv at work with loads of apps, but you can't use a keyboard with it
[08:51] <eroomde> at all
[08:51] <daveake> Get one with >3 HDMI, decent price and good picture.
[08:51] <daveake> Slap a Pi on the back if you want internet stuff

[08:51] <eroomde> so if you want to search for something on youtube, you have to move the cursor around a virtual keyboard with the arrow pad and hit enter to press a letter
[08:51] <eroomde> it makes me want to end someone's life
[08:51] <daveake> Yes ours is like that
[08:51] <daveake> apalling
[08:51] <eroomde> i will just get a media box instead
[08:51] <daveake> Hence we don't use yt on it
[08:52] <daveake> also the YT search is completely broken
[08:52] <eroomde> i'm going to try a roku box and Plex, I think
[08:52] <daveake> The life of a TV is way longer than the useful life of the s/w on it
[08:52] <daveake> So separate the tv and the s/w stuff
[08:53] <eroomde> yep
[08:54] <daveake> We sometimes play mp3s through ours, but the pi is better at that anyway. Only "media" thing we use it for is iplayer, which it does tolerably well

[09:43] <LeoBodnar> Requires 16.369MHz external clock lol
[09:44] <gurgalof> supersmall, but requires external components
[09:44] <fsphil> no mention of altitude in the datasheet

[09:53] <craag> oh?
[09:53] <gurgalof> whats weird with the ubloxes?
[09:56] <LeoBodnar> Hot start does not work to start from.
[09:56] <ike> are not all modules with the same chipset?
[09:57] <LeoBodnar> "Power save mode" suddenly interspersed with it waking up and killing your batteries
[09:58] <LeoBodnar> Sometimes it just randomly dies
[09:58] <craag> Hmm I did some playing with hot start through ucenter and it didn't seem nearly as fast as advertised to re-fix.
[09:58] <LeoBodnar> Can't be conformal coated
[09:58] <LeoBodnar> I2C has bugs
[09:58] <craag> Is there a GPS that can start up without killing your batteries though?
[09:59] <LeoBodnar> No errata from manufacturer (=bugs are not published)
[10:00] <ike> craag maybe if you have several 22uF smd caps and some smd inductions
[10:00] <LeoBodnar> Hot start is advertised to provide fix "within 1-2 seconds"
[10:00] <craag> ike: Not when it pulls it for several seconds..
[10:01] <LeoBodnar> This is what you get for attempting to use hot-start: http://leobodnar.com/balloons/B-11/2.png
[10:01] <craag> Yes, took a good 20-30 seconds for hot-start for me. I assumed it was due to my environment..
[10:01] <craag> oh ouch
[10:01] <craag> Looks like it reported it had lock before it actually did.
[10:02] <LeoBodnar> It reports 7 sats and <20m accuracy when it does that
[10:02] <ike> aren't those some 2d locks
[10:02] <LeoBodnar> forced 3D lock
[10:02] <ike> and it asume sea level for the module
[10:02] <LeoBodnar> airborne mode
[10:03] <craag> Sounds like you and the ublox dev team need to have a sit down and have a talk Leo!
[10:03] <LeoBodnar> Same problem had by KT5TK, DL7AD, SP9UOB
[10:03] <ike> maybe they never flyed HABs
[10:04] <craag> I've had some power-save weirdness with it reporting a dip in altitude as it accelerates upwards.
[10:04] <craag> matt had the same thing on one of his.
[10:04] <craag> ah that was max6 though.
[10:05] <LeoBodnar> I don't mind it saying no lock instead of providing rubbish data backed up by valid lock and sensible DOP
[10:05] <craag> Yeah...
[10:05] <LeoBodnar> MAX7 is just as bad
[10:05] <craag> How have you fixed that since? Just waited a bit after lock?
[10:06] <LeoBodnar> Stopped using hot-start
[10:06] <craag> ok
[10:06] <gurgalof> this is good stuff to know
[10:06] <craag> Speaking of which, I need to do a side-by-side of MAX6/7 for matt. He can't get MAX7s to get a lock at all.
[10:07] <LeoBodnar> Sometimes it won't lock for 10-15 minutes. Then after restart locks onto 7 sats within 40 seconds
[10:08] <LeoBodnar> It's just wild

[10:15] <LeoBodnar> Not really, I am afraid this will be just a waste of time. If anything half-decent comes along I'm jumping the UBLOX ship.
[10:16] <craag> Fair enough
[10:17] <LeoBodnar> UBLOX headline power consumption seems decent at <5mA in power save mode, but it then for no reason wakes up and consumes 50mA for 30 minutes.
[10:18] <craag> ah ok
[10:18] <craag> didn't realise it did that :O
[10:18] <LeoBodnar> Yeah, if you run it for days it is really very frustrating

[10:19] <Laurenceb> hi
[10:19] <Laurenceb> or use se4110 + stm32f4

[10:21] <LeoBodnar> our GPS needs are really not what GPS manufacturers mostly cater for
[10:21] <Laurenceb> yeah

[10:22] <Laurenceb> i dont know where that guy gets his documentation from, he seems to know some nifty arm cortex tricks

[10:26] <Laurenceb> i guess its common knowledge if you do that kind of work
[10:26] <Laurenceb> avoiding pipline stalls and stuff
[10:26] <SpeedEvil> Probably - perhaps worth a go, maybe there is some decent reference source he's using other than just 20 years.
[10:27] <craag> bertrik: It's for a boring terrestrial application :)
[10:28] <Laurenceb> you could easily do a full wake up -> aquire -> fix cycle in less than 5ms with those routines
[10:28] <Laurenceb> and only drawing <40mA at 1.8v
[10:30] <SpeedEvil> comedically insane.
[10:30] <Laurenceb> with goodish sat configuration it should be <50m CEP
[10:35] <Laurenceb> annoyingly to be super fast it needs a radix 4 or radix8 prune function writing

[10:36] <Laurenceb> then you can use the high sample rate se4110 data without it using the full 8Mhz bandwidth
[10:37] <SpeedEvil> Mmmm. Radishes.
[10:37] <Laurenceb> but keep the high pseudorange resolution that the high sample rate gives you

[10:39] <SpeedEvil> Skimming the first page says 'pruned' = good. Does it keep you regular? Is this a fast way of computing a FFT if you don't care about some frequency components?
[10:39] <Laurenceb> yes, thats the idea
[10:40] <Laurenceb> you remove some of the butterfly operations
[10:42] <SpeedEvil> Why is this better than simply sampling at the right rate?
[10:42] <SpeedEvil> Or do the bits you don't care about not have to be in the middl

[10:44] <SpeedEvil> Neat.
[10:45] <Laurenceb> i was thinking you could use the se4110 baseband at 8mhz bandwidth
[10:45] <Laurenceb> then radix8 prune eliminated 3 stages of radix2 butterfly
[10:45] <SpeedEvil> And I guess that gets you more SNR too
[10:45] <Laurenceb> and gives you 2Mhz bandwidth
[10:45] <Laurenceb> same as gps
[10:45] <Laurenceb> yeah
[10:45] <SpeedEvil> as you have anotehr 2 bits
[10:45] <SpeedEvil> Even jam resistance! :)
[10:46] <Laurenceb> then you run that asm code i linked over the 2mhz bandwidth
[10:46] <Laurenceb> then divide output by look up tabes for fft(PRN(sat(n)))
[10:46] <Laurenceb> which are gives circular shifts corresponding to the doppler
[10:47] <SpeedEvil> Stupid question.
[10:47] <Laurenceb> then reverse the process and find the lpeak for each sat
[10:47] <Laurenceb> *peak
[10:48] <SpeedEvil> If PRN sequence frequency distribution is 'white' down to lowish frequencies, does this mean that you can meaningfully correlate at 250khz say?
[10:48] <Laurenceb> doppler only needs to be accurate to 500Hz, so you procompute using last position and RTC
[10:48] <SpeedEvil> I should note I've not had coffee yet.
[10:48] <Laurenceb> hmm interesting idea
[10:48] <Laurenceb> i hadnt thought of that one
[10:49] <Laurenceb> note that my plan fails for really fast stuff in the jet stream
[10:49] <Laurenceb> as it has >500hz receiver velocity doppler
[10:50] <Laurenceb> but its perfect for pico
[10:50] <SpeedEvil> Can you pick the right sats?
[10:50] <Laurenceb> yes
[10:50] <Laurenceb> just use last known position and RTC, pass it to libswiftnav and out pop the PRN numbers and elevations
[10:50] madis_ (~madisx@unaffiliated/madist) joined #highaltitude.
[10:51] <SpeedEvil> Is the failute because the velocity spread exceeds the expected
[10:51] <Laurenceb> it also gives yyou their positions in ECEF coordinates and velocities in 3 axis
[10:51] <SpeedEvil> and therefore the fft runs out of room
[10:51] <Laurenceb> its because the FFT is misaligned by one bin or more
[10:52] <Laurenceb> so you divide by the wrong elements of the lookup table to deconvolve
[10:53] <SpeedEvil> Isn't that only an issue if you don't know the velocity?

[11:33] <LeoBodnar> is 4150 better?
[11:33] <Laurenceb> as the FFT code is 16bit fixed point throughout, incorporating the MAG and SIGN should be easyish
[11:33] <LeoBodnar> it has lower noise figures
[11:33] <Laurenceb> 4150 has buit in RF switch

[15:03] <Laurenceb> sheeet
[15:03] <Laurenceb> sorry
[15:03] <Laurenceb> yes it looks like heartbeat to me
[15:04] <Laurenceb> the frequency spectrum looks noisy
[15:04] <adamgreig> seems like there might be a better way to get the frequency. and also not sure if perhaps I Should be doing a different transfrom
[15:04] <adamgreig> yea it looks real noisy, probably because of the differentiation I guess
[15:04] <Laurenceb> maybe try some better filtering
[15:04] <adamgreig> mm
[15:04] <adamgreig> wondering if I should use just one channel too instead of the intensity, or what
[15:04] <Laurenceb> id try a bandpass filter
[15:04] <Laurenceb> yeah and use green
[15:04] <adamgreig> would be lower computational intensity if nothing else
[15:04] <adamgreig> green huh?
[15:05] <Laurenceb> yeah
[15:05] Lowerstoford (~Lowerstof@95.141.154.67) left irc: Read error: Connection reset by peer
[15:05] <adamgreig> how come?
[15:05] <Laurenceb> or if you want to be clever, using adaptive noise cancelling
[15:05] <Laurenceb> green has highest modulation depthg
[15:05] <adamgreig> interesting. ok
[15:05] <adamgreig> will swap to just green
[15:05] <adamgreig> could do adaptive noise cancelling
[15:05] <Laurenceb> so use green as signal, others as signal + noise
[15:05] <adamgreig> wanna write this up as an online thing in java for android eventually
[15:05] <Laurenceb> and put it into adaptive noise cancelling
[15:06] <Laurenceb> then use a bandpass FIR filter
[15:06] <Laurenceb> then use FFT with a windowing function
[15:06] <Laurenceb> and some smarter peak finder
[15:06] <Laurenceb> rather than just max
[15:06] <adamgreig> probably something checking harmonics
[15:06] <adamgreig> if I keep using differentiation
[15:06] <Laurenceb> that too
[15:06] <adamgreig> not sure I should really be differentiating
[15:06] <Laurenceb> its not a good plan
[15:06] <adamgreig> could do a harmonic product spectrum or something
[15:07] <Laurenceb> yeah
[15:07] <adamgreig> reckon FFT definitely way to go? nice if it could be more online and less batched
[15:07] <Laurenceb> its goodish
[15:07] <adamgreig> STFT is an option I guess but edge effects of window functions get worse
[15:07] <adamgreig> count zero crossings :P
[15:08] <Laurenceb> maybe just a rolling window FFT
[15:08] <Laurenceb> lol
[15:08] <adamgreig> rolling fft probably good plan
[15:08] <adamgreig> over like 5s or so
[15:08] <adamgreig> at 30fps that should be big enough
[15:08] <Laurenceb> yeah
[15:08] <adamgreig> then do the harmonic analysis on the fft output to find the fundamental
[15:09] <adamgreig> cool
[15:09] <adamgreig> sounds suitably more-sophisticated if nothing else
[15:09] <adamgreig> thanks!
[15:09] <Laurenceb> np
[15:09] <adamgreig> gonna hook it to the RGB lightstrip in my living room >.>

[15:23] <Babs_> adamgreig - there is an iphone app that does exactly what you are trying to achieve. I have no idea how hackable an app is, you guys are smarter than me on that kind of thing, but it also has a trace graph on it that you could use as a comparator for the signals you are picking up
[15:23] <Babs_> its called heart rate (cryptically enough)
[15:24] <adamgreig> yea there's an whole range of android apps that do this

[15:25] <Babs_> i thought you probably knew that, but i didnt think there was any harm in highlighting it
[15:25] <Babs_> :-)
[15:25] <adamgreig> sure :)
[15:25] <adamgreig> I have indeed been using the android one to compare my work against :P
[15:28] <Babs_> when i first saw it i thought it was a really nice piece of lateral thinking to use the led
[15:28] <Babs_> but it (or at least the app i use) is not perfect in terms of detection

[15:35] <eroomde> drove to london and back again, v miserable
[15:35] <eroomde> the weather, rather than me
[15:36] <adamgreig> SO bad
[15:36] <adamgreig> was woken by hail on my window
[15:36] <adamgreig> oh well
[15:36] <adamgreig> house still a bomb site after nye party. not quite brought myself to tidy yet
[15:36] <eroomde> i'm gonna buy a tv tomorrow
[15:36] <eroomde> and try some of your stuff
[15:37] <eroomde> however i might get the roku on which the now box is based, because it has ethernet, and, say reports, can be a bit happier streaming lower compression 1080p stuff
[15:37] <eroomde> not that I have a huge amount of that, but the price difference is pretty low now
[15:38] <eroomde> i'm getting it tomorrow so I can watch sherlock in oxford. sherlock is my coronation
[15:39] <adamgreig> yea the roku would be better
[15:39] <adamgreig> basically
[15:39] Lowerstoford (~Lowerstof@95.141.154.67) joined #highaltitude.
[15:39] <adamgreig> only got now tv as it was soo cheap

[15:39] <eroomde> yeah, 2 pints inc p&p
[15:40] <adamgreig> on balance though i'd get a roku
[15:40] <adamgreig> seen the first new sherlock i take it?
[15:40] <eroomde> y
[15:40] <adamgreig> good good
[15:40] <adamgreig> i bought a tv license
[15:40] <adamgreig> at 8:56
[15:40] <adamgreig> just for it
[15:40] <eroomde> nice
[15:41] <eroomde> i must remember to do that bit
[15:41] <adamgreig> though also good for sunday and next week's episodes
[15:41] <adamgreig> and new dr who whenever that starts
[15:41] <adamgreig> probably that is all I will use it for
[15:41] <adamgreig> but oh well
[15:41] <adamgreig> normally I'd just wait for it to hit iplayer but had friends round and didn't want to wait til like 2230 for it to be online
[15:42] <adamgreig> have since downloaded the hd version from iplayer anyway :P
[15:42] <adamgreig> trying to remember how to do adaptive filtering with normalised least mean squares, vaguely recall doing this last year, hah
[15:44] <eroomde> it does sort of ring a bell as a sumeet thing
[15:44] <eroomde> don't remember if they were normalised
[15:44] <adamgreig> yea i'm sure i saw him draw a diagram with signal and signal+noise or whatever
[15:44] <adamgreig> and you can remove the noise
[15:44] <eroomde> but i think there was something about making it independant to the scale of the input
[15:44] <adamgreig> I think it's his "interference cancellation"
[15:44] <adamgreig> looking at my revision notes for it
[15:45] <adamgreig> they are very colourful
[15:45] <eroomde> similarly that was mackay's complaint about why PCA is shit
[15:45] <adamgreig> think i had too many coloured gel pens then
[15:45] <eroomde> that the answer depends on the scale of the inputs
[15:45] <adamgreig> maybe I should just do bayes on it
[15:45] <adamgreig> OH particle filters being described as "throwing the bayesian sledgehammer at the problem"
[15:45] <adamgreig> suspect my phone won't be happy running online particle filters
[15:46] <eroomde> depends :)
[15:46] <eroomde> like, you can do a useful class of problem with them now with few particles and few dimensions
[15:47] <eroomde> 'where am i in this room given all my rangefinder readings'
[15:47] <adamgreig> it seems like what I want is a noise-robust detection/estimation, rather than trying to filter and then detect

[15:52] <gurgalof> here in Sweden we have to pay TV license for owning a computer with internet connection or a smartphone with data plan or a regular TV
[15:52] <eroomde> we don't
[15:52] <eroomde> just for watching live tv broadcasts
[15:53] <gurgalof> lucky you
[15:53] <eroomde> yep
[15:54] <jphoglund> in .fi it's included in taxes
[15:54] <jphoglund> so everyone pays :I
[15:55] <bertrik> I think we have to pay taxes for every storage device, including mobile phones and HDDs, in .nl
[15:56] <gurgalof> bertrik: we do it in .se too
[15:56] <bertrik> like E8,- on top of the price for a mobile phone
[15:56] <adamgreig> do the taxes go to the government or to media companies?
[15:56] <gurgalof> media companies
[15:56] <adamgreig> that seems outrageous
[15:56] <adamgreig> would be another matter if it went to the government
[15:57] <adamgreig> is piracy legal? :P
[15:57] <gurgalof> nope
[15:57] <bertrik> downloading music is legal in .nl, but not uploading
[15:57] <adamgreig> so you'll get prosecuted for pirating content, but also, you have to pay for storage devices on the assumption you will pirate content?
[15:57] <gurgalof> adamgreig: something like that
[15:58] <adamgreig> :(
[15:58] <eroomde> ok, bought the tv
[15:58] <eroomde> can pick it up from the currys 10 miles away in 1hr
[15:58] <eroomde> that was painless
[15:59] <Babs_> eroomde, do you have a home media server?
[15:59] <gonzo__> 'Home taping is killing the music industry', wasn't that their cry in the 80's?
[15:59] <adamgreig> what tv?
[15:59] <adamgreig> that is quite convenient
[15:59] <eroomde> Babs_: going to get one
[15:59] <adamgreig> just bought a new drive for my media server
[15:59] <eroomde> adamgreig: Samsung UE32F5000
[15:59] <adamgreig> nice 3TB one

[16:01] <eroomde> Babs_: i'll probably get a Roku box, and install Plex on it
[16:01] <Babs_> well, i say "home media server", I mean one of those seagate homeflex thangs
[16:01] <eroomde> I further want to get an HP Microserver and stuff it with drives as a NAS
[16:01] <eroomde> and that can feed the plex box
[16:02] <Babs_> I got sonos for Christmas, spotify premium and hooked up the seagate thing that I had had lying around for 6 months and NOW I CAN TAKE OVER THE WORLD
[16:02] <Babs_> (in a media fashion)
[16:03] <Babs_> I quite fancied a Roku, not least because I am going to be banished to the basement soon and there isn't an aerial point down there
[16:03] <eroomde> why?
[16:03] <Babs_> and (I think) it can basically punt the feed from the skybox up in the lounge down there
[16:03] <Babs_> I got the wife pregnant
[16:03] <eroomde> careless, but congratulations!
[16:03] <Babs_> Poor the Babs. Hail the Babs.
[16:04] <eroomde> baby babbington

[16:04] <Babs_> He or She will be an engineer.
[16:04] <Babs_> I actually got quite excited looking at the technical lego yesterday, its a fantastic excuse to buy something I haven't been able to buy since I was 8
[16:05] <Laurenceb> why not
[16:05] <Laurenceb> lego technic is epic
[16:05] <eroomde> yeah, it's fantastic

[16:05] <eroomde> did you see ibanexmatt's 3yo brother doing a rocket launch on NYE?
[16:06] <Laurenceb> my dad used to have a huge lego technic robot arm hooked up to a model b
[16:06] <Laurenceb> great fun

[16:06] <daveake> I had beta builder, then meccano
[16:07] <eroomde> especially mindstorms, that got my into robotics

[16:08] <Babs_> (On a serious note though) I reckon plastic meccano, then metal meccano then technical lego is the best thing for working out how things work
[16:08] <Laurenceb> haha i have the 8860 car chassis... somewhere

[16:09] <UpuWork> My sister bought me the Back to the Future car for this Christmas
[16:09] <Babs_> if you can't make it with standard blocks it shouldn't be made
[16:09] <eroomde> which is an awesome addition to any lair
[16:09] <UpuWork> no but thats ace
[16:10] <PD0RKC> -----==== Anyone knows when next balloon launches are??? ==---------
[16:10] <UpuWork> haha PD0RKC called topic
[16:10] <mattbrejza> when the weather is less shit id guess PD0RKC :P
[16:10] <UpuWork> possibly tommorrow PD0RKC if it doesn't rain under a foil
[16:10] <UpuWork> at the moment its wet
[16:10] <UpuWork> windy
[16:10] <eroomde> PD0RKC: the UK is currently completely under attack from the sky and the sea
[16:10] <Babs_> mattbrejza / Bertrik. That shuttle needs to come with a custom scale replica of a block of insulating foam to fire at it the leading edge of the wing for testing.
[16:10] <UpuWork> and pretty shit
[16:11] <PD0RKC> Upuwork what name does the balloon has for tommorow sceduled launch?
[16:11] <Babs_> eroomde - that CNC mill. I'm struggling to get my aluminium bits done for the gimbal rig, would that do the job?
[16:11] <mattbrejza> i did like the gear box on that, and being able to select different functions and it engage the correct gears
[16:12] <eroomde> Babs_: yes
[16:12] <eroomde> v likely
[16:12] <Babs_> I have a room I can fit it in for 6 months before it gets replaced with a cot
[16:12] <eroomde> buying a cnc mill to make some ali parts is like buying a cow to make a burger
[16:12] <eroomde> it's not the quickest way
[16:12] <PD0RKC> eroomde hope weather will be better or we must wait a while I gues.
[16:12] <eroomde> but if you also want it because it's just awesome to have a tabletop cnc mill, and you don't mind learning, then it's great
[16:12] <Babs_> Agreed.
[16:12] <Laurenceb> cant you just use a drill press?
[16:12] <Laurenceb> surely its not too complex??
[16:12] <eroomde> Laurenceb: you make me sick in my mouth

[18:15] <SpeedEvil> (silly RC jet antics)
[18:15] <adamgreig> the other thing that's really good
[18:15] <adamgreig> is youtube tv
[18:15] <adamgreig> http://youtube.com/tv
[18:15] <adamgreig> you want that on your tv somehow or other
[18:15] <adamgreig> and then your phone can bind to it
[18:15] <SpeedEvil> adamgreig: It's retarded
[18:15] <adamgreig> and your phone's youtube app then becomes a high tech remote control for it
[18:15] <SpeedEvil> adamgreig: I have a large screen on my PC
[18:15] <adamgreig> and you can bind many phones
[18:16] <adamgreig> so all your friends or whatever can add videos to a shared queue
[18:16] <SpeedEvil> adamgreig: Why the hell can't I remote control it if I have the youtube page up
[18:16] <eroomde> ok, i think plex supports chromecast now
[18:16] <adamgreig> SpeedEvil: you can? just use youtube.com/tv instead of normal youtube.com?
[18:16] <eroomde> which i presume could allow a similar thing
[18:16] <adamgreig> being able to have everyone in the room add youtube videos to a shared queue is quite fun

[18:17] <adamgreig> for a bit
[18:17] <adamgreig> then you realise how few good youtube videos you can find
[18:18] <SpeedEvil> Turns out there are only 348 decent videos on youtube
[18:18] <SpeedEvil> adamgreig: thanks - I hadn't found that /tv/ thing - it's depressing they don't actually make this stuff discoverable

[18:42] <eroomde> each program is generated by an algorithm that picks 6 of them at random from this set, and concatenates them together
[18:42] <eroomde> then broadcasts them on bbc2

[18:49] <mfa298> most filesystems will get unhappy with that small amount of free space.

[20:08] <chrisstubbs> Top tip for glue guns: Glue the next glue stick onto the old one to stop it falling out
[20:08] <chrisstubbs> how have i only just figured this out?
[20:10] <SpeedEvil> Other top tip - throw away the gluegun, and use a lighter - if you just want a blob of glue
[20:10] <SpeedEvil> If you need a lot of glue, use a blowtorch
[20:10] <SpeedEvil> - move the flame over the surface so as to keep it just below the smoke point - melts really rapidly
[20:12] <ibanezmatt13> warning: for professionals only. Do not try this at home...
[20:15] <SpeedEvil> Quite - there is increased use of setting yourself on fire
[20:18] <ibanezmatt13> yeah, but saying that, I still managed to burn myself with the hot glue gun. Your idea is probably safer :)

[22:51] <mfa298> everything I've seen seems to suggest you can only use the M6/2E0/M0 ranges
[22:51] <SpeedEvil> But the suffix is not protected in any way - at least for nomral nes.
[22:51] <SpeedEvil> Are there any prohibited ones - ZZZ or something?
[22:53] <mfa298> I've not seen anything saying any are prohibited
[22:54] <WillTablet> Not sure
[22:54] <WillTablet> KKK probably is
[22:56] <mfa298> would be interesting to know how much of the M1 space has been used. Initially I suspect it's usage was much higher than the M0 space.
