[07:20] Last message repeated 1 time(s).
[07:20] <SP3OSJ> Is anybody here? Does anybody hear me? My computer is good?
[07:21] <x-f> good morning, SP3OSJ
[07:21] <x-f> i believe the habhub people are still asleep, it's a bit early for them
[07:21] <SP3OSJ> goog moning
[07:22] <SP3OSJ> That tracker ceased to transmit broke down. :(
[07:22] <x-f> oh
[07:24] <x-f> you are using the Si4432 chip?
[07:28] <SP3OSJ> yes
[07:29] <x-f> do you reset it once in a while?
[07:30] <SP3OSJ> Si4432 only 70cm RTTY and SI4463 2m (RTTY APRT, DominoEX)
[07:30] <SP3OSJ> no reset
[07:42] <x-f> you should, that might be the reason why your trackers go silent
[07:43] <x-f> well, depends on how you have them programmed - if you power the radio down after every transmission, then that counts as a reset, of course
[07:49] <SP3OSJ> Reset to GPS. GPS is good. This transmitter has stopped working
[07:50] <SP3OSJ> Transmitter or Controller (AVR)?
[07:50] <x-f> transmitter
[07:52] <SP3OSJ> Yes SI4432, can quartz 30MHz?
[07:53] <SP3OSJ> I'm going to do a new trackers
[07:54] <x-f> i didn't understand what you meant by "can quartz 30 MHz"
[07:56] <x-f> i have to go out now
[07:56] <x-f> we're having a snowstorm here (in Latvia), -10C and 10 m/s wind, expecting freezing rain and ice later, because there are positive temps above 1.5km.. fun.

[12:05] <SpeedEvil> LeoBodnar: What do you mean. Do you mean 'at what point will my RTC drift so much I will mispredict an edge', and miss iit'
[12:06] <SpeedEvil> LeoBodnar: There are numbers of known edges in the handover words and similar at the start of the nav message - which is broadcast at integral 6 seconds throughout the week.
[12:08] <SpeedEvil> LeoBodnar: If you know your very rough position, and do the required orbital sums, and are willing to do a tiny bit of maths, the drift can be quite large.
[12:12] <SpeedEvil> A 10ppm RTC (yes, you will likely needto calibrate it) will drift 1ms in ~100s.
[12:13] <SpeedEvil> But remember - all the sats 'drift' at once if you drift like this. So, the resulting position may end up really, really unlikely - or more likely impossibe - so you can solve for time.
[12:15] <SpeedEvil> And, of course, you are getting samples from that 1-2ms of radio from scattered sats reporting from about 6000km range differences - so you really have not got a 1ms or 2ms sampling time - but a sparse 20ms.

[12:18] <LeoBodnar> Basically at what time accuracy you misrepresent a PRN edge for the one before/after
[12:18] <LeoBodnar> this is about chip timing, not NAV bit timing

[12:20] <SpeedEvil> With the dithered clock?
[12:20] <LeoBodnar> I assume it is 1/2 chip length which at max doppler of 10kHz will be about
[12:20] <LeoBodnar> 78 sec
[12:20] <LeoBodnar> no with clean LO
[12:20] <SpeedEvil> I suspect this may be something I haven't heard of
[12:21] <LeoBodnar> so you wake up to look at chip edges and it has drifted more than 1/2 chip length
[12:21] <SpeedEvil> Oh - right
[12:21] <SpeedEvil> you can fix that to a degree by picking when you know there is likely to be a nav bit transition
[12:21] <LeoBodnar> sure
[12:21] <LeoBodnar> but you might as well do it for all sats
[12:22] <LeoBodnar> in which case they are scattered about 20ms from each other
[12:22] <SpeedEvil> Quite.
[12:22] <LeoBodnar> assuming they are all having a transition, say at preamble time
[12:22] YO9ICT (~YO9ICT@leu-a1.eregie.pub.ro) joined #highaltitude.
[12:22] <LeoBodnar> so 40msec sample ate the right time (6sec) should bring it all back
[12:23] <SpeedEvil> 40ms seems pretty generous.
[12:23] <LeoBodnar> to good synchronicity
[12:23] <SpeedEvil> But yes - that should be quite adequate.
[12:23] <LeoBodnar> well 22 then
[12:23] <LeoBodnar> I assume if you have to store 20msec worth of data you might as well do 20msec integration time
[12:24] <SpeedEvil> I suppose the sane thing to ask now is 'what can cheap (in terms of power and cost) crystals do at a constantish temperature.
[12:24] <LeoBodnar> oh wait then it should be 60msec
[12:24] <LeoBodnar> 40msec ntegration window + 20msec offset between sats
[12:25] <SpeedEvil> That's a total 20ms or so for the whole constellation. They're spread by about an earth radius in time - from the closest overhead to those on the horizon
[12:25] <LeoBodnar> it is still only 120kB of data on 4110
[12:25] <LeoBodnar> From memory it is about 20msec
[12:26] <SpeedEvil> It is surprising in some ways how easy this is.
[12:26] <SpeedEvil> Then again - it was designed for 1980s tech.
[12:27] <LeoBodnar> yeah and surprisingly there appear new ways of skinning it

[12:50] <craag> I think sp9uob is feeling the effects of all the Warsaw tractor beams right now
[12:50] <craag> That is an amazing concentration of receivers
[12:50] <mfa298> if you happen to see a payload at the same height you could get a reciever, the radius of it's blue circle would give an idea of what extra range you might get (might only be a few miles unless you can get something above a few hundred meters ASL.
[12:50] <Sytex_HA7018> But for after-land-search a quadcopter with SDR and some electronics (maybe raspi) will help much

[12:52] <mfa298> Sytex_HA7018: Getting an antenna up high after landing might help (although hopefully if you're chasing it you'll have a pretty good idea where it is anyway)
[12:52] <HA6NN> Geoff-G8HDE: Hi, Thanks for the URL! Nice pictures, indeed!
[12:52] <ak4rp> mfa298 is the blue circle accounting only for the geometry or also for refraction stuff?
[12:52] <Oddstr13> mfa298: according to my phone's GPS, i'm 611m MSL
[12:53] <LeoBodnar> I don't think it is corrected for frequency ak4rp
[12:54] <ak4rp> no 4/3 earth radius and stuff like that
[12:55] <Sytex_HA7018> Assume, that you have the last packet at 500-600 meters high before landing. There is a big area what you have to search. But, If you go to the last knowm position, fly up as high as you can with a quad, and if the payload is still working, you can record the audio, land with quad, decode the recording, and you know the exact position.
[12:56] <SpeedEvil> ak4rp: It simpy computes horizon - assuming a zero altitude sphere.
[12:56] <SpeedEvil> ak4rp: this can be dramatically out
[12:56] <ak4rp> I see
[12:56] <mfa298> ak4rp: I think it's just geometry and assumes all the ground is at 0m ASL (so if you're above sea level with a good view to the horizon your range might be slightly further, if there's a hill in the way the range will be reduced)
[12:56] <Geoff-G8DHE> Looks like SAtratdean is likely to make the Arctic before SP9UOB!
[12:57] <Geoff-G8DHE> *Stratodean
[12:58] <Oddstr13> SP9UOB is designed to float, not burst?
[12:58] <Geoff-G8DHE> Hopefully!
[12:59] <mfa298> Sytex_HA7018: a position at 500m above ground with suitable predictions you should have a pretty good idea of where it landed. and usually as you approach it you'll hear it when your close.
[13:00] <Sytex_HA7018> mfa298: but if you cannot heart it for any reasons (terrain, etc), i think a quad is very good for plan B
[13:00] <Sytex_HA7018> *hear
[13:01] <LeoBodnar> yes Oddstr13
[13:01] <mfa298> Sytex_HA7018: a Quad may help although you may still need to be relativly close (partly depending on local laws) if you can only fly it to 100m above ground it wont have a huge range (but better than you on the ground)
[13:02] <mfa298> Sytex_HA7018: but the first challenge might be finding a suitable way to receiver the telemetry with something that could go on a quad
[13:03] <Sytex_HA7018> rtl-sdr & raspberry pi & and some recording software. I think it is not necessary to decode on the quad, after you land with the quad, you can play the recording and decode it with a laptop.
[13:04] <Darkside> ok
[13:04] <Darkside> so over 32 launches, we've never needed anything like that
[13:04] <Darkside> you know what we do?
[13:04] <Darkside> we drive to a hill
[13:04] <Darkside> we also have yagi antennas
[13:04] <Darkside> we'v never had a problem
[13:05] <mikestir> yeah we received wggs1 from 2 miles away using a 7 ele after the last position was received at 800m
[13:05] <Darkside> even laying on the ground, you can usually pick up the signal even if its not decodable) a few km away
[13:05] <Darkside> yeah
[13:05] <Darkside> and you dont need to decode it to get a direction
[13:05] <Darkside> foxhunting yo
[13:05] <mikestir> exactly - we got a decode after following the bearing for a bit
[13:05] <Darkside> yup
[13:05] <Darkside> thats how they did it in the days before GPS
[13:05] <LeoBodnar> I also never needed a quad
[13:06] <Sytex_HA7018> Okay, it is just theory, combining hobbies with each other...
[13:06] Action: Oddstr13 wants to be able to track balloons ._.
[13:06] <Darkside> LeoBodnar: how many of yours have you recovered?
[13:06] <Darkside> like, 2?
[13:06] <Darkside> if that
[13:06] <mfa298> in the last couple of years worth of UK launches I can only think of one or two payloads that couldn't be located after landing - and that was potentially down to the skill of those chasing
[13:06] <LeoBodnar> you know what I do? make a cuppa
[13:06] <Darkside> lol
[13:06] <LeoBodnar> and make a new balloon
[13:07] <HA6NN> It seems to me, it well worth to listen to BBC Global Weather forecasts. They are able to show the main wind directions as well.
[13:07] <Darkside> HA6NN: wind on ground != wind at 20km
[13:07] <ak4rp> people who use SI446x: do you need modulator hacks like varicaps for these parts?
[13:07] <Darkside> we have the predictor for a region
[13:07] <Darkside> reason*
[13:07] <ak4rp> I mean for DominoEX etc
[13:07] <LeoBodnar> I think 3 or 4 Darkside
[13:07] <Darkside> ak4rp: most dont
[13:07] <mfa298> HA6NN: or use the predictors which get all the global wind data at various heights from NOAA
[13:07] <Darkside> ak4rp: if you put in teh right crystal, you end up with shift spacing that are correct
[13:08] <HA6NN> Darkside: Are you sure BBC shows ground level winds?
[13:08] <Darkside> ak4rp: LeoBodnar could fill you in better
[13:08] <Darkside> HA6NN: its what relevant to people on the ground
[13:08] <Darkside> so, yes
[13:08] <HA6NN> Darkside: I see.
[13:08] <Darkside> i mean, sure, it might be 10m winds or something
[13:08] <Darkside> but its not that relevant to a high altitude balloon, not for the most part of the flight anyway
[13:08] <Darkside> again, we use the predictor
[13:08] <Darkside> its very good.
[13:09] <LeoBodnar> ak4rp: there are two camps who drive it differently
[13:09] <HA6NN> Darkside: Of course. A fellow of ours has just made a fresh predictiion.
[13:09] <mfa298> Sytex_HA7018: going back slightly, getting the Pi to decode audio from SSB is easier said than done. I've already spent some time trying to do it (just for ground based reception)
[13:10] <Geoff-G8DHE> South Coast UK wind speed at ground level - well 10m http://weather.g8dhe.net/wdl/
[13:10] <ak4rp> yeah, I should have thought about the crystal sooner. I've put together a board with a 30 MHz TCXO
[13:10] <HA6NN> I am to switch to Masat 1 pass over now. See you soon!

[13:20] <ak4rp> you mean continuous phase or not?
[13:21] <Darkside> ak4rp: well making the transmitter continuous phase is easy
[13:21] <Darkside> a few flights have been like that already
[13:21] <Darkside> modulating the VCO, so the phase is constant anyway
[13:21] <Darkside> not sure if you can make use of that on the ground though
[13:21] <ak4rp> if it is continuous phase, then recovering the phase is "easy"
[13:21] <ak4rp> and you can use a bank of matched filters theoretically
[13:22] <Darkside> well the bank of matched filters approach is how a non-coherent demodulator works
[13:22] <Darkside> im not sure how the coherent part comes in
[13:22] <ak4rp> the optimum coherent receiver can also be cast as a bank of matched filters
[13:23] <Darkside> hrm
[13:23] <ak4rp> I think :)
[13:23] <Darkside> i wrote what i'm pretty sure is a non-coherent reciver a few days ago :P
[13:23] <ak4rp> the other way would be PAM decomposition
[13:24] <Darkside> i take a DFT of the overall signal energy (obtained from fft bins) and use the phase of that to gt the symbol timing
[13:24] <ak4rp> but PAM easy PAM decompositions don't work for integer modulation indexes, which is exactly what you get with these DominoEX-like orthogonal schemes
[13:24] me4 (~user@178-165-130-235.dyn.orange.at) joined #highaltitude.
[13:25] <ak4rp> yeah, but you don't really need a full DFT
[13:25] <Darkside> single point DFT
[13:25] <Darkside> at the symbol rate
[13:25] <ak4rp> you're only interested in the phase of a single Fourier coefficient
[13:25] <Darkside> yep
[13:25] <Darkside> thats what i'm doing
[13:25] <ak4rp> yes, it is pretty standard for clock recovery I guess
[13:26] <Darkside> i also take that DFT over several symbol periods, as otherwise it breaks when you have sequential identical symbols
[13:26] <Darkside> as the signal energy stays constant ovr that time
[13:26] <Darkside> that isnt a problem for DominoEX and THOR
[13:27] <Darkside> but theortically DominoEX and THOR Should have a 3db pendalty over MFSK16/32, as they are effectively 'differential' MFSK
[13:27] <Darkside> (kind of)
[13:28] <Darkside> they use the spacing between tones to convey data, not the absolute tone frequency
[13:28] <Darkside> im not sure if that 3db penalty is present though, i need to do some uncoded BER vs Eb/No tests on the modems and find out
[13:29] <ak4rp> I'm not sure... think about coherently detecting DPSK
[13:30] <Darkside> this is all non-coherent though
[13:30] <Darkside> i've been meaning to write a fldigi BER test-set :P
[13:30] <Darkside> maybe i should get off my ass and actually do it
[13:30] <ak4rp> that would be certainly useful
[13:30] <Darkside> and see how these modems stack up to the theory
[13:30] <Darkside> because im pretty sure the FSK modem is a fair way off
[13:31] <ak4rp> how does it work?
[13:31] <Darkside> dunno
[13:31] <Darkside> but its supposedly gotten worse with the last few updates
[13:31] <ak4rp> CPM is a big magic
[13:33] <HA6NN> ak4rp: Received and decoded heaps of high speed data from Masat 1 down to one degree of elevation!
[13:33] <ak4rp> you should look at Sundberg's book if you can. I suppose they have something to say about coherent MFSK demodulation. If nothing else, huge error rate approximations :)

[13:34] <Darkside> hrm
[13:34] <ak4rp> and you gain something compared to the non coherent version because there is no noise contribution from the "quadrature" branches which
[13:34] <Darkside> CPM Wouldnt work well on channels with phase distortion, would it
[13:35] <ak4rp> ... are necessary for the nonoherent demodulator
[13:35] <Darkside> well i was pretty sure the coherent demodulator was going to be better
[13:36] <Darkside> im not sure if the effort is worth it after coding though
[13:37] <ak4rp> yeah, equalization would be pretty hopeless in a balloon setting
[13:37] Nick change: Sytex_HA7018 -> Sytex_AWAY
[13:37] <Darkside> well
[13:37] <Darkside> it'd be easier than on HF
[13:37] <Darkside> which is where most of my efforts are focused
[13:38] DL7AD (~quassel@p5B3D5376.dip0.t-ipconnect.de) left irc: Ping timeout: 252 seconds
[13:38] <Darkside> at least from a balloon you're not going to have serious multipath effects
[13:38] <ak4rp> I don't know... the ionosphere is evil, isn't it? considerable Doppler spread etc
[13:38] <Darkside> at worst you get the occasional bit of flat fading
[13:38] <Darkside> the ionosphere is horrible
[13:38] <Darkside> doppler spread, delay spread
[13:38] <Darkside> multipath interference
[13:39] <ak4rp> and then you've got the equalization problem again
[13:39] <Darkside> yeah
[13:39] <Darkside> which is why i'v only ever seen non-coherent MFSK receivers used on HF
[13:39] <Darkside> theres probably a good reason
[13:40] <Darkside> actually thats not true, i think MIL-STD-188-141B ALE might have coherent reciver implementations, as that does some equalisation
[13:40] <Darkside> thats 8ary FSK
[13:41] <Darkside> anyways
[13:41] <ak4rp> maybe linear approximations work... I'm not really an expert. if GSM works so well, it should not be very hard to do it with more levels, should it? :)
[13:41] <Darkside> dunno
[13:42] <Darkside> anyway, good chat :-)
[13:42] <ak4rp> unless your Doppler spread is too high, you can do some kind of channel estimation.
[13:42] <Darkside> well doppler sprad isnt such an issue for MFSK
[13:43] <Darkside> not unless the doppler spread approaches your tone spacing
[13:43] <Darkside> in which case you're having a really bad day anyway
[13:43] <ak4rp> unless you want to exploit your channel estimates for a reasonable time span :)
[13:43] <Darkside> yeah from my experience with HF, i doubt the estimates woudl be useful for more than a few hundred ms
[13:44] ke9v (43b1b6bb@gateway/web/freenode/ip. joined #highaltitude.
[13:44] <Darkside> see, the way around this problem on HF (in most cases) is USE MORE POWER
[13:44] <Darkside> thats how the military do it anyway >_>
[13:44] <Darkside> all these wonderful high bit-rate stanag modems that need a >20dB SNR
[13:45] <ak4rp> brute force almost always helps
[13:45] <Darkside> yup
[13:45] <ak4rp> but increasing M helps, too
[13:45] <Darkside> for low power the solution is FEC FEC FEC
[13:45] <Darkside> yes, at the cost of bandwidth
[13:45] <ak4rp> do the BER testing framework for fldigi, that would be awesome
[13:45] <Darkside> mm
[13:46] <Darkside> it requires delving into each of the modems and extracting a raw bitstream
[13:46] <Darkside> not a fun job

[14:42] <Laurenceb_> yeah, my doppler tracking works for simulated launch over the north sea and receiver in UK
[14:43] <LeoBodnar> cool need to test
[14:43] <Laurenceb_> but the error is fairly large on peak altitude, ~+-500m for +-5ppb oscillator drift over apogee
[14:43] <Laurenceb_> ranging tone would probably be better
[14:43] <LeoBodnar> reverse GPS with ranging tone?
[14:43] <Laurenceb_> (this is for rockoons)
[14:43] <Laurenceb_> yeah
[14:44] <LeoBodnar> habitat can do reverse GPS calcs
[14:44] <LeoBodnar> so GPS based local transmitter with 1PPS locked reference PRN?
[14:45] <LeoBodnar> for each receiver
[14:46] <LeoBodnar> or somehow an edge of 1PPS signal mixed into the RX
[14:46] <LeoBodnar> so each RX station calculates exact offset of the HAB PRN vs 1PPS reference
[14:47] <LeoBodnar> so yo can line up pseudoranges from receivers

[16:01] <DL1SGP> good day and happy weekend dear hab-fellows :)
[16:02] <ibanezmatt13> good day Felix, bad weather though
[16:02] <ibanezmatt13> Ok, so I've checked the current flow on the battery when it's recording video in HD: 0.8A. Now that's not enough to cause problems with the batteries surely. I can't work out what's going on! :P
[16:03] <DL1SGP> ibanezmatt13: we got rain at 3c melting away the snow
[16:03] <SP9UOB-Tom> well preety cold up there
[16:04] <DL1SGP> Hi SP9UOB-Tom
[16:04] <SP9UOB-Tom> hi
[16:04] <DL1SGP> we had -3.8c yesterday
[16:05] <ibanezmatt13> Interesting. So batteries get burning hot at 0.8A of current for an hour... I can't think of what to do with this damn camera
[16:10] seventeen_ (021bff8d@gateway/web/freenode/ip. joined #highaltitude.
[16:10] <mikestir> use more cells and a switch mode regulator to reduce current?
[16:11] <ibanezmatt13> mm, not easy really. I'd have designed my own PSU for it had I been able to take it apart. Canon Powershot camera, takes 2 AAs.

[16:18] <ibanezmatt13> I've tested with the multi meter the current is 0.8A. It's a bit of a pain since I can't get to the terminals inside the camera without putting the AAs in
[16:18] <mikestir> tbh I never checked for heating. I just measured current for a battery life estimate. It might have been cooking, but it did work fine

[16:19] <ibanezmatt13> Yeah, the heat doesn't bother me, I just need to work out why it just turned off with plenty memory left. It worked again after I let the batts cool
[16:19] <LeoBodnar> it probably has a temperature cutoff
[16:19] <ibanezmatt13> that's a possibility yeah
[16:19] <mikestir> are you using chdk?
[16:19] <ibanezmatt13> yep
[16:20] <LeoBodnar> in a consumer design it's probably a must
[16:20] <mikestir> maybe an issue with chdk on that specific model?
[16:21] <ibanezmatt13> I'm not sure, I've had three hours out of it once on the same type of batteries. They too got hot but it didn't shut down. You might be right
[16:22] <LeoBodnar> get batteries out of the camera maybe?
[16:22] <ibanezmatt13> I think the ultimate solution is to do that yeah. If I could get to those flaming terminals, I'd have had a whole switchmode PSU for it :/
[16:22] <mikestir> make dummy batteries out of dowel
[16:22] <ibanezmatt13> I've considered dummy batteries
[16:22] <ibanezmatt13> :)
[16:23] <ibanezmatt13> I sort of disregarded dummy batteries, but now it's becoming more apparent they might actually be a good idea
[16:25] <LeoBodnar> switchmode why?
[16:26] <ibanezmatt13> I have one readily available in my room. No real reason, if I could just get two batteries outside of the camera, that might do the trick.
[16:28] <ibanezmatt13> mikestir, no harm in having a go at making some dummy batteries I guess. We have dowells
[16:29] <ibanezmatt13> Could just wrap it in gaffer tape to give it a more fitting thickness in the holder.
[16:33] <ibanezmatt13> I could try making a cutout in the box for the actual batteries and make a small air duct on the bottom too to help dissipate the heat.
[16:35] <SP9UOB-Tom> LeoBodnar: i think that temperature was below sensor scale

[17:01] <ibanezmatt13> On a serious note, mikestir, do you think using hot glue sticks as the dummy battery shell would be a bad idea? :) They wouldn't get hot at all anyway if the batteries are sepearate as there's just be a wire going through them. Nice fit, easy to cut and has a bit of squidge to help them fit in :P
[17:02] <mikestir> hmmm. could be messy!
[17:02] <ibanezmatt13> I might have just topped the record for most stupid thing ever said in IRC
[17:02] <ibanezmatt13> could be, but at least if they do melt you know the wire won't come out :P

[20:52] <arko> that i've never seen
[20:52] <arko> how weird
[20:52] <LeoBodnar> yeah
[20:52] <LeoBodnar> During orbital insertion, the Ariane 5 launch vehicle experienced a problem which resulted in Artemis being placed in a lower orbit than desired. Some clever engineering saved the satellite and placed it in nearly the required orbit, though this left the spacecraft low on fuel for orbit maintenance and station-keeping.
[20:53] <LeoBodnar> The result is that Artemis is now in a GSO which is inclined to over 10 degrees with respect to the equator. This is enough to put the satellite outside of the dynamic range of the current MT 9 ECEF z-component (Figure 4) during certain parts of its orbit and thus cannot be used for ranging.
[20:53] <LeoBodnar> Nicely explained for once
[20:54] <arko> neat
[20:57] <LeoBodnar> So basically current ephemeris structure of the SBAS message is too small for actual orbit parameters

[21:23] <LeoBodnar> there are ones with solder lugs
[21:23] <Laurenceb_> yes
[21:23] <LeoBodnar> usually holder is heavier than battery
[21:23] <Laurenceb_> it would need to withstand 100G at launch
[21:23] <adwiens_KC0WYS> CR1/3N are better for higher drain currents
[21:23] <adwiens_KC0WYS> same mass as CR2032 (3g)
[21:23] <Laurenceb_> interesting, thanks
[21:24] <adwiens_KC0WYS> they are harder to find with solder lugs but they exist

[21:24] <Laurenceb_> i was thinking 868mhz chip antenna
[21:24] <gonzo__> a similar solution was used for triangulating the HF ionospheric sweeper TX stations
[21:25] Nick change: a -> Guest22946
[21:25] <gonzo__> they had a stereo PC sound card input, one chan on the HF RX and the iother sniffing the clicks from a 1pps
[21:25] <Laurenceb_> interesting
[21:26] <gonzo__> they were able to locate the TX to the rough part of the country
[21:26] <Laurenceb_> arg but that varta thing is high ESR
[21:26] <craag> I wonder how much jitter you'd get from an fcdpp
[21:27] <craag> Onto a PC with a pps-disciplined clock.
[21:27] <craag> Perhaps reading the raw data and bypassing the soundcard drivers.
[21:27] <adwiens_KC0WYS> Laurenceb_: I tested a CR1/3N at -15C pulling 32mA pulses http://adwiens.com/projects/balloons/batt/index.html

[21:28] <Laurenceb_> interesting
[21:29] <Laurenceb_> http://www.powerstream.com/p/Lir2032.pdf
[21:30] <adwiens_KC0WYS> I'v seen some of those, but once you factor in the cold won't you get only about 20 mAh?
[21:31] <Laurenceb_> its going to be insulated well
[21:31] <LeoBodnar> mixing the reference onto the signal on air solves all the problems
[21:31] <Laurenceb_> yeah
[21:31] <LeoBodnar> if reference is repeatable across all RXers
[21:32] <LeoBodnar> sub-usec accuracy is achievable
