[07:12] <Chetic> oh I forgot it was USB and couldn't look it up so I guessed
[07:12] <Chetic> I'm powering it through usb of course?
[07:12] <Chetic> why would you power it with 3v3? :p
[07:13] <x-f> to have smaller power budget
[07:13] <x-f> on those screenprints is it just the radio or do you have GPS and other accessories attached?
[07:15] <x-f> do you have a recording?
[07:15] <Chetic> http://i.imgur.com/FrT3PJu.png
[07:15] <Chetic> still very messy
[07:16] <Chetic> uh, GPS and a couple of i2c devices are attached, why?
[07:17] <x-f> they can be too power-hungry, which make the radio transmission wobbly
[07:19] <x-f> Chetic, upper left corner - from the dropdown list choose USB instead of RTTY
[07:20] <Chetic> ahh that could absolutely be it
[07:20] <Chetic> usb selected
[07:22] <x-f> any improvements?
[07:23] <Chetic> not really
[07:23] <Chetic> how do I fix the gps power hogging? capacitors?
[07:24] <x-f> might help, yes
[07:24] <x-f> is it model A?

[07:40] <fsphil> you'll want to turn that off
[07:42] <Chetic> http://i.imgur.com/tGu3dpK.png
[07:42] <Chetic> ok now it works, but only barely
[07:43] <fsphil> you can control it in /boot/cmdline.txt
[07:43] <Chetic> I've turned it off, it's something else
[07:43] <fsphil> it's a power problem
[07:43] <Chetic> system calls to the serial port hang and it transmit like a garbage byte every second or so
[07:43] <fsphil> you're using a model B, powered via USB and running extra stuff off the 3.3v rail
[07:44] <fsphil> the Pi's 3.3v regulator is rubbish
[07:44] <Chetic> USB voltage isn't stable?
[07:44] <fsphil> possibly that too
[07:44] <fsphil> but more likely the pi's 3.3v reg is stressed
[07:44] <Chetic> that I can believe
[07:44] <fsphil> brb
[07:44] <Chetic> interesting problem though!
[07:55] es5nhc (~tarmo@178-21-244-214.wmx.levira.ee) joined #highaltitude.
[08:03] <fsphil> better to use a model A
[08:05] <Chetic> how would that help?
[08:05] <fsphil> it uses less power
[08:05] <fsphil> quite a bit less
[08:09] <Chetic> because of the ethernet controller?
[08:09] <Chetic> but that can be turned off
[08:09] <fsphil> yea, and the usb hub
[08:09] <Chetic> I was gonna do that anyway
[08:09] <Chetic> the power regulators are the same as far as I know
[08:09] <fsphil> they are
[08:10] <Chetic> no reason to get a model a then?
[08:11] LazyLeopard (~irc-clien@chocky.demon.co.uk) joined #highaltitude.
[08:11] <fsphil> still less power usage
[08:13] <Chetic> can't be much in comparison to turning of the ethernet controller

[08:34] <fsphil> how are you going to program it? :)
[08:36] <Chetic> set up boot to run a program off sd
[08:39] <mfa298> you'll also want to edit /etc/inittab on the pi to remove the *getty that runs on the serial port
[08:41] LeoBodnar (4e97ca1d@gateway/web/freenode/ip. left irc: Ping timeout: 272 seconds
[08:41] <Chetic> ofc
[08:42] <mfa298> if you're using the ntx2(b) radio module you can connect it's power to 5v which would remove some stress from the 3v3 reg. but gps and i2c stuff could be giving more stress
[08:42] mikestir (~quassel@cpc10-brmb8-2-0-cust107.1-3.cable.virginm.net) joined #highaltitude.
[08:43] <mfa298> and power from a computer usb port probably isn't enough (500mA max from memory and a plain model B needs something like 400mA before you've added anything else)
[08:44] <Chetic> "but gps and i2c stuff could be giving more stress"
[08:44] <Chetic> what do you mean by that?
[08:46] <mfa298> currently it sounds like you're loading the onboard 3v3 reg with the Pi stuff + gps + i2c + radio module
[08:47] <Chetic> gps and i2c stuff could be giving more stress to what if I move ntx to be powered by 5v?
[08:47] <mfa298> the onboard reg is only rated to have around 60mA spare capacity
[08:48] <mfa298> if you move the ntx2 to 5v power it's a bit less load on the 3v3 reg, but gps + i2c stuff may still be too much for the reg to handle
[08:48] <Chetic> ah yes
[08:49] <Chetic> didn't get that last part till now
[08:49] <Chetic> so having tx at 3v3 is fine for the ntx2 even if it's powered by 5v?
[08:50] <Chetic> woo! my balloon and parachute just arrived!
[08:50] <mfa298> the ntx2 has an internal regulator so it's power input is fairly wide, but the txd input should be within 0-3v
[08:51] <Chetic> excellent
[08:51] <mfa298> the datasheet for the ntx2 is pretty decent to read.
[08:52] <mfa298> If you can it might be worth removing the i2c and gps devices and see if it works better, then add them back in when you need them (one at a time)
[08:52] <mfa298> that way you know if adding a particuar item breaks things
[08:53] <Chetic> yeah I realized far too late that the modular approach is the best
[08:54] <mfa298> also if your current power supply is a pc usb port get a dedicated psu (ideally rated for at least 1A) almost all the issues I've had with the pi are power related.
[08:55] <Chetic> sounds like a good idea
[08:55] <Chetic> I'll do it on my lunch break :)
[08:55] <Chetic> see if it makes a difference
[09:05] <cm13g09> +1 on that mfa298

[09:16] <mikestir> yes about as useful as recruitment consultants
[09:17] <eroomde> we have one guyt at work who always invites the recruiters over
[09:17] <eroomde> i can never ever foresee a circumstance where we need one
[09:17] <eroomde> ever
[09:17] <eroomde> yet he seems to think it might be useful one day
[09:18] <eroomde> like, i have a list of about 5 people as a kind of subs bench in my head as to who i'd want to hire if a position came open
[09:19] <eroomde> i can't really imagine having a really technical opening and just farming out the person-hunting process to someone who probably doesn't really understand half the words in the job description
[09:20] <fsphil> they did that here a few times
[09:20] <eroomde> i knew someone who was an expert in fluid-structure interaction simulation
[09:20] <fsphil> the person didn't last long
[09:20] <eroomde> eg modelling how fluids flow over flexible things like parachutes

[09:57] <eroomde> google has an intelligent etymology thing now
[09:57] <eroomde> it draws you a little hisotrical graph of the word
[09:57] <eroomde> if you type, say, 'condition etymology'
[09:58] <eroomde> it'll give you the roots of the word 'condition'
[09:58] <eroomde> which is nice

[09:59] <eroomde> i'm learning lots
[09:59] <nats`> it doesn't work in french for now
[10:00] <eroomde> i would have guessed 'ferry' would be from the latin 'ferre; - to bring/carry

[10:01] <eroomde> old english 'ferian' is to bring/carry
[10:01] <eroomde> i'm sure this must come from the latin
[10:03] <Hix> they [and a lot of others] seem to believe it comes from Ferja - which I can see. We do have a lot of Norse words.
[10:03] <Hix> i.e tomorrow's name
[10:03] <eroomde> yeah
[10:03] <eroomde> but it's surely not coincidence that both norse and latin have the 'fer' root to mean the same thing
[10:04] <eroomde> there must be some pre-all-that link

[10:13] <eroomde> I'll elaborate on the IE origins of phero.
[10:13] <eroomde> The (reconstructed) indo-european is *bher-. The * in linguistics denotes that the form is reconstructed and hasn't actually been attested in literature.
[10:13] <eroomde> From "A dictionary of selected synonyms in the principal indo-european languages" :
[10:13] <eroomde> Indo-european *bher- ...
[10:13] <eroomde> Grk phero, modern greek pherno, irish biru, berim, gothic bairan, Old English beran, etc., once general germanic for carry', now in part restricted (Du. baren, NHG gebaren 'bear' children, NE bear in this sense, also = 'endure', and in many phrases, as bear in mind, but no longer generic 'carry' in common speech); Sanskrit bhr.-, Avestan bie 'bring'; Toch. par- 'carry,bring'; but Church Slavic bera, birati 'bring together, collect'.
[10:13] <eroomde> sorry for big paste
[10:13] <eroomde> but it looks like they all go back to proto-indo-european
[10:14] <eroomde> which can now be my random learn-something-new-thing-of-the-day

[11:28] <eroomde> Hix: so other words we get from the ferre (or pre) root are
[11:28] <eroomde> refer
[11:28] <eroomde> and relate
[11:28] <eroomde> because the verb is: fero, ferre, tuli, latum
[11:29] <eroomde> i carry, to carry, i carried, having been carried
[11:30] <eroomde> so refer comes from the infinitive bit and relate comes from the past particple bit
[11:30] <eroomde> transfer, translate likewise
[11:31] <eroomde> and they think it's so irregular because of PIE

[11:42] <Hix> does ipnb always use port 8889?
[11:44] <eroomde> https://twitter.com/Pinboard/status/425072404985954304
[11:44] <eroomde> i think it uses different ports as you can have multiple sessions open at once

[11:49] <mfa298> if you want stability stay away from DamnVPS/ThrustVPS. And from reading a few forums/blogs anything started up by the same guy (Rus Forster or something like that). They might be cheap but stability can be pretty poor and support is attrocious (aparently a running a DNS server means your getting DDOSed)
[11:50] <Hix> seems to start at 8888 and then use 8889 if another session opened. So port forward 8888-8890 :) see if it works
[11:51] <cm13g09> mfa298: it's OK
[11:51] <cm13g09> they weren't on my radar
[11:52] <craag> mfa298: I used damnvps/thrustvps for a couple of years.. hours of unexplained downtime. Also powered off my vps with no notification a couple of times as well due to 'suspicious traffic' which after about a month trying to squeeze blood from a stone turned out to be a UDP mosh session..
[11:54] <mfa298> I've still got a couple of vpss with them as their cheap although they're not doing anything that important.
[11:55] <Miek> problem is that it's way too easy for pretty much anyone to rent a dedi and start selling VPSes these days

[14:05] <gonzo_> they could drop it on their foot
[14:05] <LeoBodnar> Laurenceb: have you tried sampling from your PCB?
[14:05] <Laurenceb> no
[14:05] <gonzo_> have you been injured in a nuclear inccident, that wasn't your fault.....
[14:05] <Laurenceb> i've been way too busy :-/
[14:06] <Laurenceb> LeoBodnar: do you have some raw data?
[14:06] <LeoBodnar> Ah, my sampled signal is way too noisy
[14:06] <LeoBodnar> The first strange thing is that it is offset
[14:07] <eroomde> really?
[14:07] <LeoBodnar> imbalance between SIGN values is like 20%
[14:07] <eroomde> have you compared it to the sample data i sent you?
[14:08] <LeoBodnar> I have two boards made up and both have offset around 15-20%
[14:08] <Laurenceb> thats not too bad
[14:08] <Laurenceb> 20% shows you have a little LO leakage
[14:08] <LeoBodnar> eroomde: your values are balanced to better than 0.1%
[14:08] <Laurenceb> but its hardly the end of the world
[14:09] <Laurenceb> LeoBodnar: its partly due to the SiGe front end
[14:09] <LeoBodnar> so mixer ends up with DC
[14:09] <Laurenceb> SiGe sampler has some offset (but not that bad)
[14:09] <Laurenceb> have you found any sats with it?
[14:10] <LeoBodnar> yeah but I had to use 4msec integration
[14:10] <Laurenceb> how are you processing the data? do you have matlab?
[14:10] <Lunar_LanderU> fsphil, the photo from Curiosity is awesome
[14:10] <Laurenceb> that doesnt sound right
[14:10] <LeoBodnar> some C jobbie
[14:10] <Laurenceb> ok
[14:10] <Laurenceb> hmm
[14:10] <Laurenceb> you do have teeny antenni and no SAW filter
[14:10] <Laurenceb> i can find ~6 or more sats with 1ms and patch
[14:10] <LeoBodnar> I have not used any SAW filters at the input and post-LNA
[14:11] <Laurenceb> yeah i know
[14:11] <Laurenceb> how was the antenni positioned for the data recording?
[14:11] <LeoBodnar> from what sampler?
[14:11] <Laurenceb> SiGe sampler
[14:11] <LeoBodnar> I had a chip and 1/4wave
[14:13] <LeoBodnar> When I override the gain I get perfect 50% balance
[14:13] <Laurenceb> where was the ant, and what angle?
[14:13] <Laurenceb> wut
[14:13] <Laurenceb> thats very weird
[14:13] <LeoBodnar> vertical stuck outside
[14:13] <Laurenceb> ok, sounds sane
[14:13] <Laurenceb> im confused
[14:14] <Laurenceb> what do you mean why "override the gain"?
[14:14] <LeoBodnar> well, Sige do not specify what voltage causes gain to increase
[14:14] <eroomde> i don't know about the sige specifically but usually these things have an AGC
[14:14] <LeoBodnar> you can disable AGC and feed gain control voltage into VAGC pin
[14:14] <eroomde> because who the hell knows what the pcb designer has put infront
[14:15] <eroomde> oh
[14:15] <eroomde> i let the max take-care of that on mine
[14:15] <LeoBodnar> I did not bother disabling AGC just fed low impedance voltage into VAGC
[14:15] <LeoBodnar> just playing around you know
[14:16] <Laurenceb> this is weird
[14:16] <Laurenceb> i can't see how AGC would effect the DC offset
[14:16] <Laurenceb> but i see some DC offset on SiGe sampler
[14:16] <eroomde> can you see that you have something sattelitey there?
[14:16] <Laurenceb> eroomde: he needs 4ms integration
[14:16] <eroomde> eg do you have a siggen? and if so can you generate some L1 carrier and put it in front?
[14:16] <LeoBodnar> highly amplified noise will mask the offset
[14:16] <Laurenceb> seems a bit high, thats all
[14:16] <Laurenceb> but it def works
[14:17] <Laurenceb> LeoBodnar: I would have expected 2ms tops to work
[14:17] <LeoBodnar> I have generated 1MHz harmonics and I could see them on the FT spectrum
[14:17] <LeoBodnar> 3-4 fit inside IF filter BW
[14:17] <Laurenceb> LeoBodnar: so if it has internal AGC, what is the VAGC driven by?
[14:18] <Laurenceb> im wondering if there is noise on VAGC
[14:18] <Laurenceb> that might explain the DC offset and excessive noise symptoms
[14:18] <LeoBodnar> It's AGC filtered control voltage
[14:18] <eroomde> fine
[14:18] <eroomde> i had one bug when i put the pll tuning caps on the wrong way round
[14:18] <Laurenceb> so do you see the same noise performance with AGC on and off?
[14:18] <eroomde> difficult to tell the wrong noise from the right noise, when it's just spitting out noise
[14:19] <LeoBodnar> eroomde: it's just RC network
[14:20] <eroomde> indeed, i just happened to solder two caps on the wrong way
[14:20] <LeoBodnar> so it's sort of works but not stellar performance
[14:21] <Laurenceb> yeah
[14:21] <LeoBodnar> and with longer integration the search becomes massively longer
[14:21] <Laurenceb> but on one level its impressive for such a barebones design
[14:21] <LeoBodnar> definitely
[14:21] <Laurenceb> pity that it needs longer integration
[14:21] <Laurenceb> that seems a little odd
[14:21] <LeoBodnar> good antenna will fix a lot of problems
[14:21] <eroomde> and maybe a filter
[14:22] <Laurenceb> i was half expecting it just to oscillate or some failure like that :P
[14:22] <LeoBodnar> lol
[14:22] <LeoBodnar> thanks
[14:22] <Laurenceb> heh
[14:22] <LeoBodnar> I can dangle it off the USB cord it then oscillates
[14:22] <Laurenceb> i think something might not quite be right with it
[14:22] <Laurenceb> interesting
[14:22] <Laurenceb> with the DC offset stuff
[14:23] <Laurenceb> how are you doing the search in c?
[14:23] <Laurenceb> libfftw?
[14:23] <LeoBodnar> yeah, it's basically ref design from 4110 DS so offset is strange
[14:23] <LeoBodnar> serial search so far
[14:24] <Laurenceb> ok, id try libfftw
[14:24] <Laurenceb> http://www.fftw.org/install/mac.html
[14:24] <LeoBodnar> same code finds sats on Ed's and the GPS book data with no problem
[14:24] <Laurenceb> neat
[14:25] <eroomde> what xtal are you using?
[14:25] <LeoBodnar> 0.5ppm TCXO
[14:25] <eroomde> hmm
[14:25] <LeoBodnar> 16.368MHz
[14:25] <eroomde> problem not there then
[14:26] <LeoBodnar> Checked the freq
[14:26] <LeoBodnar> checked that samples are not lost
[14:26] <eroomde> endianness?
[14:26] <LeoBodnar> cross-checked collected data and scope traces on SIGN and CLOCK
[14:27] <eroomde> poobum
[14:27] <LeoBodnar> yeah, endianness was my 1st suspicion
[14:27] <LeoBodnar> so it is somewhere in the RF stage
[14:27] <Laurenceb> im suspecting noise feeding aroudn there, yeah
[14:27] <Laurenceb> probably getting into the LNA
[14:27] <SpeedEvil> Oh!
[14:27] <LeoBodnar> indeed
[14:28] <LeoBodnar> Not sure how much USB adds
[14:28] <Laurenceb> SSTL suffer from these issues
[14:28] <SpeedEvil> http://www.ngs.noaa.gov/gps-toolbox/exist.htm I found yesterday
[14:28] <SpeedEvil> Assorded GPS code - I'm not sure how useful
[14:28] <Laurenceb> http://www.sstl.co.uk/Products/Subsystems/Navigation/SGR-05P-Space-GPS-Receiver
[14:28] <SpeedEvil> http://www.mathworks.co.uk/matlabcentral/fileexchange/29272-skipping-stone-an-interplanetary-space-mission-design-tool
[14:28] <Laurenceb> that thing barely works
[14:28] <SpeedEvil> Matlab simulator
[14:28] <Laurenceb> due to LNA noise
[14:29] <SpeedEvil> ^orbital planning
[14:29] <Laurenceb> interesting stuff
[14:29] <Laurenceb> a bit beyond our present capabilities :P
[14:30] <LeoBodnar> I have been able to follow bit transitions in sample data from GPS book by correlating for +PRN/-PRN 2msec block each 20msec
[14:30] <Laurenceb> still, even with 4ms integration you should find sats in ~15ms
[14:30] <Laurenceb> total time on stm32
[14:30] <Laurenceb> groovy
[14:31] <LeoBodnar> so no need for all these tracking loops
[14:31] Action: Laurenceb is lazy and just ported Kai Borre code to Octave
[14:31] <LeoBodnar> just correlate for PRN inversion
[14:34] malgar (~malgar@mi-18-55-171.service.infuturo.it) left irc: Ping timeout: 272 seconds
[14:38] <LeoBodnar> with exhaustive search on PIC24 I estimate it to take 30 sec per sat. Suddenly CortexM3 makes sense
[14:39] <Laurenceb> FFT search would only be a few times slower than on ARM
[14:41] <LeoBodnar> So anyway I was wondering if anybody has done their own design with SE41** to compare the results
[14:41] <LeoBodnar> ballpark performance on samples level
[14:41] <LeoBodnar> Ed uses MAX ones I think
[14:42] <Laurenceb> yeah i should populate my board
[14:42] <Laurenceb> need to work on broken by design I2C kit tho :-/
[14:42] <LeoBodnar> just to grab few msec of data
[14:42] <Laurenceb> trying to run 400kHz i2c down 4m of cable
[14:43] <SpeedEvil> How much does 'proper' - say 8 bit at over nyquist over the bandwidth - sampling buy you?
[14:43] <SpeedEvil> vs these one bit things
[14:44] <SpeedEvil> (clearly it's lots more computationally expensive)
[14:45] <LeoBodnar> my GPS book has 4 bit sampled data and after reducing it to 1 bit I have found to my surprise no significant reduction in quality
[14:45] <LeoBodnar> of acquisition
[14:46] <Laurenceb> yeah
[14:46] <Laurenceb> as the signal is below the noise
[14:50] <SpeedEvil> I guess it's just jam resistance perhaps
[14:50] <Laurenceb> yes
[14:50] <Laurenceb> mil stuff uses 8bit
[14:50] <LeoBodnar> If anybody is interested in sampled data I can upload it somewhere.
[14:51] <LeoBodnar> *from the book
[14:53] <Laurenceb> which book?
[14:53] <Laurenceb> the Kai Borre book?
[14:55] <LeoBodnar> yep
[14:55] <Laurenceb> ah - i have it already thanks
[14:56] <LeoBodnar> cool
[14:56] <SpeedEvil> It's kind of insane that you can buy off-the-shelf ADCs that will do 1.5GHz baseband at 12 bits.
[14:56] <SpeedEvil> I mean - sure - they are $ow.
[14:57] <LeoBodnar> here is the sweep of 4msec integration data over chip offsets with fixed/best Doppler http://leobodnar.com/balloons/files/PRN13.png
[14:57] <SpeedEvil> Lovely lovely spikes!
[14:57] <LeoBodnar> with a chip antenna as pictured http://leobodnar.com/balloons/files/GPSsampler.jpg
[14:57] <LeoBodnar> So it is not broken
[15:00] <Laurenceb> looks good
[15:00] <SpeedEvil> :)
[15:00] <LeoBodnar> On good data the spikes are usually x10-20 the noise floor
[15:00] <SpeedEvil> Yeah.
[15:01] <LeoBodnar> Well on Ed's and Kai's data

[15:02] Action: Laurenceb is back to fighting I2C
[15:03] <Laurenceb> the first data from LSM330DL FIFO is a fixed value
[15:03] <Laurenceb> seems to be device orientation at power up
[15:03] <LeoBodnar> Use lower value pullups
[15:03] <LeoBodnar> for 4m bus
[15:03] <Laurenceb> yeah i've got the bus to behave now, just
[15:03] <Laurenceb> but the data isnt sane
[15:04] <LeoBodnar> ok, that's in I2C spec
[15:04] <Laurenceb> heh
[15:04] <Laurenceb> mainly as ST mems kit is full of silicon bugs
[15:06] <SpeedEvil> Laurenceb: Read all the errata. And then more importantly, tell the chip loudly that you've read all the errata and it should behave.
[15:06] <LeoBodnar> then find some of your own
[15:06] <SpeedEvil> It does work OK on a short cable, I gather?

[15:18] <Laurenceb> its very annoying

[15:32] <Laurenceb> lol i foudn the issue
[15:33] <Laurenceb> ST FIFO buffer can loop indefinitely
[15:33] <Laurenceb> if you read too fast you loop around and start reading old data
[15:33] <LeoBodnar> oh, that's really neat
[15:33] <LeoBodnar> is it a slave device?
[15:34] <LeoBodnar> of course it is
[15:34] <LeoBodnar> it's sensor isn't it?
[15:35] <Laurenceb> yes
[15:36] <Laurenceb> seems the RC time constant for its sampling is all over the place
[15:36] <Laurenceb> 1.344Ksps is sometimes <1.2Ksps
[15:36] <Laurenceb> so my FIFO reads too much and loops

[15:47] <Laurenceb> as i reset the FIFO, following the galaxy s2 driver code
[15:48] <Laurenceb> https://github.com/Laurenceb/STM32InertialMonitor/blob/master/Sensors/amb_sensors.h#L39
[15:48] <Laurenceb> so what i do is write 0x04 followed by 0x44 to 0x2E
[15:48] <Laurenceb> to toggle the FIFO off/on in an attempt to "unbug" it
[15:49] <Laurenceb> thats to fix the misaligned bytes issue that afflicts it
[15:49] <Laurenceb> for some reason the first samples i read after doing this are the first samples recorded by the device after power up/config
[15:49] <Laurenceb> i.e. they are fixed

[20:14] <pascend> We think that the problem is due to a mis match of datatypes. When we send the string to our transmitter using sprintf we are using the %i or%d notations to represent the values, however the pressure is calculated and returned as a float meaning that we get a spurious result. However when we print directly to our datalogger using println we get a correct result for pressure

[20:20] <jack9515> I understand those pages for receiving but not transmitting.
[20:20] <craag> jack9515: Ok, so in the UK we use a radio transmitter module to send down the 1s and 0s of the binary data.
[20:21] <craag> We then use radio receivers to convert that into audio tones, and a program on a computer (dlfldigi) that decodes the audio back into the binary data
[20:21] <pascend> ah okay, will look into that thanks!
[20:21] <jack9515> And is that just an ordinary output from any GPS
[20:21] <SpeedEvil> jack9515: lightly processed by a microcontroller typically
[20:21] <craag> jack9515: There's a packet format
[20:22] <craag> eg: $$CRAAG,343,51.546,-1.2945,30*ABCD
[20:22] <jack9515> How?
[20:22] <craag> So $$ is the start of the string
[20:22] <jeffewil> Hi does anyone (other than jcoxon who isn't here) know the details of compiling a version of dlfldigi on mac 10.6.8?
[20:22] <craag> Then you've got data in it (the gps co-ordinates, temperature, etc)
[20:23] <craag> And the *ABCD on the end is a checksum that allows detection of errors
[20:23] <jack9515> Ok, I think I've got an idea of the components but I have no clue how to connect them up
[20:23] <SpeedEvil> Duct tape, hotmelt.
[20:24] <SpeedEvil> Oh, solder too may be used.
[20:24] <craag> jack9515: More info on the packet format: http://ukhas.org.uk/communication:protocol
[20:24] <SpeedEvil> But mostly tape and hotmelt.
[20:24] <LeoBodnar> hey Laurenceb

[20:46] <pascend_> Hi again chaps, another question for you! On dl-fldigi we cant figure out how to tune the two lines to match up with the waterfalls? I know that 'the two lines' isn't what they are called and that is probably half the problem!
[20:46] <adamgreig> click the waterfall

[20:46] <LeoBodnar> jeffewil: find libpng.pc on your mac first
[20:47] <adamgreig> has anyone here used an AVR to make a custom USB device?
[20:47] <LeoBodnar> "custom" as in... ?
[20:48] <adamgreig> not CDC or MIDI or HID
[20:48] <adamgreig> i.e. I anticipate mucking with libusb computer-side
[20:48] <pascend_> yeah, we can move the 'two lines' however we cannot change the width between them. That's the issue
[20:48] <adamgreig> pascend_: change the rtty spacing in the rtty modem setting (click the RTTY word on the bottom left)
[20:48] <adamgreig> LeoBodnar: I just want framed multi byte data transfer
[20:48] <jeffewil> hmmm... libpng.pc isn't there. I have libpng.3.gz ? reckon it will be in there?
[20:48] <LeoBodnar> It's easy
[20:49] <LeoBodnar> Have you written your own driver or using lib-usb?

[20:50] <pascend_> We have receive filter bandwidth? this doesnt seem to change the width between the lines
[20:50] <adamgreig> pascend_: not that. you want the spacing
[20:50] <LeoBodnar> Take HID, and convert it to bulk transfer thing
[20:51] <LeoBodnar> you can leave descriptors etc in place

[20:58] <LeoBodnar> it's OK then. low speed does not have bulk transfers

[21:08] <Laurenceb_> interesting
[21:08] <LeoBodnar> too much of a difference
[21:08] <Laurenceb_> something doesnt make sense there
[21:08] <LeoBodnar> yeah
[21:09] <Laurenceb_> more importantly, why are peak highs so different
[21:09] <LeoBodnar> no idea
[21:09] <Laurenceb_> how does your code work?
[21:09] <LeoBodnar> I thought you might stick the data into your code
[21:09] <Laurenceb_> you have >> 2ms of raw data?
[21:09] <LeoBodnar> dumb successive search
[21:09] <Laurenceb_> so you have >>2ms of data and you slide prn alongside and correlate?

[21:10] <LeoBodnar> I correlate with one PRN and with two PRNs
[21:10] <Laurenceb_> i see
[21:11] <LeoBodnar> two PRNs produce much cleaner peaks
[21:11] <LeoBodnar> one PRN is almost invisible
[21:11] <LeoBodnar> above data is 16,368,000 sps, IF is 4,092,000 MSB is earliest sample
[21:12] <Laurenceb_> ok ill try for you :P
[21:12] <LeoBodnar> cheers
[21:12] <Laurenceb_> so whats the format of the data?
[21:12] <Laurenceb_> byte/sample?
[21:12] <LeoBodnar> yes each byte is separate
[21:12] <Laurenceb_> signed byte?
[21:12] <LeoBodnar> no, packed bits
[21:12] <Laurenceb_> arg
[21:13] <Laurenceb_> octave doesnt like
[21:13] <Laurenceb_> 404 error too
[21:13] <LeoBodnar> MSB = earliest, LSB is latest, then next byte
[21:13] <Laurenceb_> so single bit?
[21:14] <LeoBodnar> yes 1-bit samples
[21:14] <Laurenceb_> ok
[21:15] <Laurenceb_> still 404
[21:15] <SpeedEvil> here too
[21:16] <SpeedEvil> On reflection, I will not download it.
[21:16] <SpeedEvil> I was just thinking of quickly hacking up a receiver in awk

[21:16] <SpeedEvil> Which may indicate I'm too tired to be thinking rationally.
[21:18] <LeoBodnar> hehe
[21:18] <LeoBodnar> let me fix the dl
[21:19] <LeoBodnar> works now
[21:19] <Laurenceb_> ok got it

[21:22] <Laurenceb_> http://www.mathworks.co.uk/matlabcentral/fileexchange/14670-gps-ca-code-generator
[21:22] <Laurenceb_> thats handy
[21:23] <LeoBodnar> I generate C/A with shift registers as in specification
[21:23] <LeoBodnar> after failing to find tabulated data
[21:26] <Laurenceb_> think i can use c style logical operators to split the bytesa
[21:26] <Laurenceb_> only vectorised obviously
[21:27] <Laurenceb_> or actually i could call bitget on the whole file...
[21:33] <Laurenceb_> i think this can be done in 6 lines :P
[21:34] <LeoBodnar> hehe
[21:35] <Laurenceb_> arg no
[21:35] <LeoBodnar> GPS in awk would be fine
[21:35] <Laurenceb_> i forgot doppler
[21:35] <LeoBodnar> For PRN5 i have doppler -3300Hz
[21:37] <Laurenceb_> of course the next stage is to calculate position
[21:37] <Laurenceb_> if i can get a fix ill work on getting that running in octave
[21:37] <Laurenceb_> with 1ms of data :P
[21:37] <LeoBodnar> hehe

[21:42] <jeffewil> jcoxon i tried just changing for libpng but don't have the file on my computer
[21:42] <LeoBodnar> I mean the clock data sent in the NAV message - how much correction is applied vs assumed absolute timing?
[21:43] <SpeedEvil> LeoBodnar: My understanding was the nav message was sent at integer 6 second boundaries starting beginning of week
[21:43] <SpeedEvil> satellite time
[21:44] <LeoBodnar> That would be nice but there is small correction for actual time vs absolute time that is sent in NAV message
[21:44] <LeoBodnar> I wonder how big it is?
[21:44] <jeffewil> jcoxon >> http://pastebin.com/0J6BUKAf
[21:44] <SpeedEvil> My understanding is that that's sent in the ephimirides per sat
[21:44] <LeoBodnar> if it's in the order of +-100m equivalent position then it can probably be ignored
[21:44] <SpeedEvil> I may have misread or misremembered stuff though
[21:45] <jcoxon> jeffewil, lets go to PM

[21:50] <LeoBodnar> no idea, http://www.gps.gov/technical/ps/1995-SPS-signal-specification.pdf page 24
[21:53] <Laurenceb_> LeoBodnar: so MSB is most recent data?
[21:53] <Laurenceb_> and most significant bit?>
[21:53] <LeoBodnar> no the oldest
[21:54] <LeoBodnar> the first received sample is byte zero bit 7

[22:58] <Babs_> well, 73kg+/- 2kg judging by their useful slackful tolerances
[22:58] <fsphil> has a rather inflated ego
[22:58] <Lunar_Lander> you know, there was a guy who proposed that the prehistoric humans were zapped by cosmic rays in some highland and then turned into Homo Sapiens
[22:58] <Lunar_Lander> xD
[22:58] <arko> kg damn
[22:58] <Babs_> ooo. nice fsphil.
[22:58] <arko> fsphil: bravo
[22:58] <Lunar_Lander> fsphil, yay!
[22:58] <Babs_> *bows to fsphil*
[22:58] <Lunar_Lander> fsphil, do you have the link to the Curiosity Mountain photo you had this afternoon?
[22:59] <Babs_> it's like you are on a hair trigger for any pun opportunity
[22:59] <Lunar_Lander> if you don't have it at hand, I can check the chatlog
[22:59] <fsphil> https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/9/98/Curiosity_on_Mars.jpg
[22:59] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[22:59] <fsphil> not sure it's a mountain, could be the edge of the crater the rover is in
[22:59] <Lunar_Lander> arko, someone commented on this photo that the RTG has no trefoil warning on it and how this affects the martians xD
[22:59] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[23:00] <arko> tough luck?
[23:00] <fsphil> could have just stopped them invading earth Lunar_Lander
[23:00] <Lunar_Lander> xD
[23:00] <fsphil> was reading up on the suspension the rovers use, it's really neat
[23:00] <fsphil> and so simple
[23:01] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[23:01] <fsphil> the name spoils it
[23:01] <Babs_> arko - wat dis? http://www.flickr.com/photos/arkorobotics/12046324156/
[23:01] <fsphil> rocker-bogie
[23:01] <Lunar_Lander> actually, I wanted to discuss something else I read on german scienceblogs
[23:01] <Lunar_Lander> yea fsphil
[23:01] <qyx_> fsphil: do you have some link?
[23:01] <arko> Babs_: i'm beta testing Upu's new 145Mhz preamp/filter
[23:01] <arko> for aprs and cubesats
[23:01] <arko> using the hackrf
[23:01] <arko> and usbrtl
[23:01] <Babs_> who is sending a cubesat up?
[23:01] <Lunar_Lander> there apperantly has been a rock that appeared at Opportunity's current location over the course of new year's
[23:02] <arko> nobody...?
[23:02] <arko> its just cubesats that fly over all the time
[23:02] <Lunar_Lander> on Christmas the rock wasn't there yet
[23:02] <arko> lots of fun stuff on 2m
[23:02] <Babs_> ahhh ok
[23:02] <Babs_> ps am designing a pcb
[23:02] <arko> gonna do a little demo video this weekend hopefully
[23:02] <arko> :) nice dude
[23:02] <Babs_> its going to be totally like Bell Labs in the 1950s
[23:02] <arko> hahah
[23:02] <Babs_> intentionally of course
[23:02] <Willdude123> Oh dear
[23:02] <Willdude123> Wii Fit U
[23:02] <Lunar_Lander> here http://www.nasa.gov/jpl/mer/rock-pinnacle-island-pia17761/index.html
[23:03] <Willdude123> Sounds like a bra fitting service
[23:03] <Lunar_Lander> arko, I think that is very exciting
[23:03] <Lunar_Lander> the rock thing I mean
[23:03] <arko> yeah
[23:03] <fsphil> can't find the page now qyx_
[23:03] <arko> cant wait to see the data and wht not
[23:03] <Lunar_Lander> yeah
[23:03] <Lunar_Lander> does the Mössbauer spectrometer on it still work btw?
[23:04] <arko> i think so
[23:04] <Lunar_Lander> as the Cobalt decays over time, and it has been running 10 years
[23:04] <Lunar_Lander> cool!
[23:04] <Lunar_Lander> the last two mondays I had two lectures about Mössbauer that also touched the MERs at the end
[23:04] <Babs_> here's the schematic for my tracker. it's taking a while to draw on eagle. http://tinyurl.com/62tk96
[23:04] <Lunar_Lander> the lecturer really is amazed by that method
[23:04] <Lunar_Lander> :)
[23:05] <fsphil> so want a hackrf
[23:05] <Babs_> Just hoping Steve stocks a 1 tonne hwoyee and I can tap off some helium (well all of it) from the LHC to fly it
[23:05] <Lunar_Lander> :)
[23:05] <Lunar_Lander> I heard a funny thing, don't know if correct
[23:05] <Lunar_Lander> LHC shuts down in Winter as the power is supply by France
[23:05] <arko> Babs_: haha
[23:05] <Lunar_Lander> and the costs for power increase in Winter as many french households have electric heating
[23:06] <Babs_> in all seriousness, i have got well into eagle
[23:06] <arko> any relation to the family?
[23:06] <arko> oh nice
[23:06] <Babs_> my fears proved unfounded
[23:06] <Babs_> no, no relation
[23:06] <arko> aww
[23:06] <arko> that would be epic
[23:06] <arko> cv material
[23:06] <Lunar_Lander> Babs_, cool!

[23:09] <Lunar_Lander> Babs_, http://www.life.illinois.edu/govindjee/history/Chance2004.pdf
[23:09] <Lunar_Lander> this is about stopped-flow, what I also did in my B.Sc. thesis
[23:09] <Babs_> the 2014 version of the Babington Plot is a Truman Show esque IRC channel where Richard Babington goes on to get periodically humiliated through his lack of knowledge of all things coding
[23:09] <Lunar_Lander> scroll to page 7
[23:09] <arko> hahahaha
[23:09] <Lunar_Lander> you find the mechanical computer they built in 1939
[23:09] <Lunar_Lander> XD
[23:10] <Babs_> Nice L_L
[23:10] <arko> so i need some help trying to figure out what this beacon is
[23:10] <arko> https://soundcloud.com/arkorobotics/sdrsharp-20140119-205136z
[23:11] <arko> used the preamp/filter and found it hiding
[23:11] <Babs_> one last one - does everyone on here a) hand solder SMD (which i have done but is a pain) or b) have a reflow oven. And does anyone reflow on a skillet? I saw some sparkfun dude reckon it was just as good as an oven, but i dont know whether he was drunk when he wrote that

[23:12] <Upu> Hand solder and reflow oven Babs
[23:12] <Upu> for one offs hand solder
[23:12] <fsphil> a computer monitoring for distant callsigns?
[23:12] <Upu> skillet is crap
[23:12] <Babs_> arko - have you ever heard the shipping forecast?
[23:12] <fsphil> then anouncing them on radio?
[23:12] <Lunar_Lander> yea I wondered about that also
[23:12] <arko> Babs_: yes! found out about it when i was in the uk
[23:12] <arko> super cool
[23:12] <Lunar_Lander> I mean I have constructed that SMD board now
[23:12] <Babs_> it sounds just like that clip
[23:13] <Lunar_Lander> if we should be bold and try hand soldering
[23:13] <arko> yes!
[23:13] <arko> or numberstations
[23:13] <Babs_> Upu - and feasible to hand solder the surface mount SMD atmega/Ublox?
[23:13] <fsphil> the shipping forecast won't have much purpose when they end AM broadcasts
[23:13] <Upu> oh easily yes

[23:13] <Upu> I have literally hand soldered over 500 ublox modules
[23:13] <arko> callsign mentioned
[23:13] <Babs_> do you do that pin by pin, or can you do it just dragging across all of the pins now?
[23:13] <Upu> but you need a reasonable iron
[23:14] <arko> metcal 4 lyf
[23:14] <Upu> drag soldering never worked for me just pin by pin
[23:14] <Upu> yes Metcal
[23:14] <Steve_mirc_2e0ve> is it possible to get ISPP headers that fit in to breadboard
[23:14] <Upu> or Hakko 888
[23:14] <Lunar_Lander> we got a Weller WTCP-S I think

[23:14] <Lunar_Lander> the only problem is that it does not have a temperature dial
[23:14] <Upu> with a small tip
[23:15] <Upu> if you want to drive up to Yorkshire you're welcome to use the metcal
[23:16] <Babs_> thanks upu - i've got some temperature controlled maplin thing

[23:16] <Babs_> ark - does one not need an oven for that though?
[23:16] <arko> sure
[23:16] <arko> or hot plate

[23:16] <Upu> right night all

[23:16] <Babs_> see you upu - thanks
[23:17] <fsphil> nite
[23:17] <Babs_> arko - upu said hot skillet was not going to work that well
[23:17] <Lunar_Lander> good night Upu
[23:17] <Lunar_Lander> thanks for sharing your knowledge at all times! :)
[23:17] <Babs_> i guess i will probably order a few pcbs and see how i get on
[23:17] <WillTablet> My radio manual says that the atu will not operate with a long wire or ladder line
[23:17] <WillTablet> Does that mean I can't coax feed a balun that feeds a g5rv?
[23:17] <Lunar_Lander> yea I wonder
[23:17] <Babs_> how do i put a hole in an eagle circuit board thang anyhow?
[23:18] <arko> hot skillets are no good
[23:18] <arko> get a proper hot plate
[23:18] <Lunar_Lander> should you have temperature control on your iron for SMD?
[23:18] <arko> for smd
[23:18] <Babs_> arko - linky
[23:18] <Lunar_Lander> as I said at Uni we got that Weller thing which seems to have been quite expensive
[23:18] <Lunar_Lander> but it has no temp control
[23:18] <arko> http://www.smtmax.com/detail.php?id=56
[23:18] <arko> these are awesome
[23:18] <arko> but expensive
[23:19] <Babs_> weller? http://www.live4ever.uk.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/05/pw7.jpg
[23:19] <Lunar_Lander> do you put the PCB on that, wait for a moment and done?

[23:21] <Babs_> arko - where do you get your stencils printed?
[23:21] <arko> pcb houses usually will do them for you
[23:21] <Babs_> don't say NASA, it will not be useful to me
[23:21] <arko> i laser cut my own
[23:21] <arko> :P
[23:21] <Lunar_Lander> :)
[23:21] <Babs_> oooooo. get you with your own laser cut stencils!
[23:21] <arko> hackvana for example will charge you $30
[23:21] <Babs_> ahhh ok.
[23:21] <arko> which is soooo worth it when you have loads of parts
[23:21] <Babs_> each or for a few?
[23:22] <Babs_> just looked it up. you can reuse them by the look of it
[23:22] <Babs_> does no one make disposable ones you can just stick down to avoid the potential for the stencil to slip?
[23:24] <arko> yep
[23:24] <arko> well
[23:24] <arko> i've seen a kapton one once
[23:24] <arko> but i dont imagine its very good
[23:24] <arko> just get the thin metal ones
[23:24] <arko> save yourself the pain
[23:25] <Steve_mirc_2e0ve> DOES THIS LOOK OK FOR THE isp HEADER http://imgur.com/wRxtZ9E
[23:25] <Steve_mirc_2e0ve> bloody caps lock
[23:26] <mfa298> WillTablet: the built in ATU on a radio should be ok with a G5RV, Longwire is a different matter (they're generally very long wires, i.e. several wavelengths long). On a G5RV the ladder line section is part of the antenna not the feedline - it's fed with coax still
[23:26] <Lunar_Lander> ah can I interject something non-electronics related?
[23:27] <SpeedEvil> Sure.

[23:31] <Lunar_Lander> that I meant
[23:31] <Lunar_Lander> probably a misunderstanding on my end craag
[23:31] <craag> Oh cool
[23:31] <craag> Yes we got a couple of stencils from him just before christmas
[23:31] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[23:31] <SpeedEvil> Babs_: I do not believe so
[23:31] <Lunar_Lander> and on that TV screenshot I meant "can you see the discrepancy?"
[23:32] <Babs_> (this may be an open ended question but...) - if its just thin polyester, what stops it from snagging/gives it the rigidity to stay close to the pcb when spreading the paste on?
[23:32] <arko> pressure
[23:33] <arko> you put glob of solder paste across it
[23:33] <arko> then use a giant squeegy and pressdown and drag
[23:33] <craag> Lunar_Lander: You mean the discrepancy between what that girl is wearing, and real clothes?
[23:33] <arko> you then lift straight up
[23:33] <Lunar_Lander> yea
[23:33] <arko> its fine
