[09:05] <fsphil> yea we've started doing similar here
[09:05] <cm13g09> You can guarantee if you don't do them, you'll have a problem
[09:06] <cm13g09> we do ours very carefully, by taking out power to the UPS only (and leaving the rest of the network up) so we can monitor the shutdown

[09:07] <fsphil> pro tip: make sure the ethernet switch your network enabled UPS is connected to, is powered by said UPS :)
[09:08] <cm13g09> fsphil: well, in most cases I've dealt with "Ensure network switch that allows communication between the servers with the management agent on it and the server directly connected to the UPS is on the UPS"
[09:08] <fsphil> whoever setup ours didn't
[09:08] <cm13g09> also "Ensure shutdown sequence is sane so that the server connected to the UPS is the last one out"
[09:09] <fsphil> the UPS powering the switches would fail before the UPS powering the servers
[09:09] <cm13g09> whoops!
[09:09] <fsphil> but the servers would never get the message to shut down
[09:09] <fsphil> was a right mess

[09:44] <ibanezmatt13> Can't believe that I got several green decodes of BALYOLO last night. I might get myself a proper radio rig set up, it felt awesome :)
[09:44] <Joel_re> whats a green decode?
[09:44] <ibanezmatt13> Where you decode each character of the datastring in dl-fldigi correctly
[09:45] <Geoff-G8DHE> The background goes GREEN to show success as opposed ro RED
[09:46] <eroomde> Joel_re: dl-fldigi has a red/green system for fail/pass of the string with the checksum
[09:46] <Joel_re> oh
[09:46] <Joel_re> I havent played with that
[09:46] <ibanezmatt13> Do you reckon a 5 element Yagi would perform better than my magmount on a window ledge?
[09:47] <Geoff-G8DHE> When the balloon is down the lne of the aerial yes!
[09:48] <ibanezmatt13> Right, I'll try that next time
[09:48] <fsphil> it'll be more work keeping the yagi aimed
[09:48] <ibanezmatt13> That's what I was thinking
[09:48] <Joel_re> can someone look at this crc code and tell me if it looks fine http://bpaste.net/show/188352/
[09:49] <Joel_re> is there anyway I can test it
[09:49] <Joel_re> I mean to verify
[09:49] <fsphil> I like to test against this: http://www.lammertbies.nl/comm/info/crc-calculation.html
[09:49] <fsphil> CRC-CCITT (0xFFFF) is the one we use
[09:51] <Joel_re> ok
[09:52] <fsphil> uint8_t crc_new = (unsigned char)(crc >> 8) | (crc << 8);
[09:52] <fsphil> I'm pretty sure this will always result in 0
[09:53] <fsphil> uint8_t crc = 0xffff;
[09:53] <fsphil> no chance :)

[10:12] <gonzo_> ibanezmatt13, unless the balloon is close to you, then you will probably not need to change the aim of the yagi through most of the flight. And a 5lele will have quite a wide beamwidth anyway. So you will probably be able to point it once and leave it there
[10:13] <gonzo_> even with my 17ele beam, at a few 100's opf km away, I hardly need to adjust it for the whole flight

[11:12] <G8APZ> BALYOLO - batteries died last night around 10pm
[11:12] <daveake> Don't expect this sort of timekeeping later :)
[11:13] <BALYOLO> Thanks - we think it may be still flying ...
[11:14] <G8APZ> BALYOLO Quite likely given that it seemed to be a float and at a decent altitude - was received over a wide area
[11:14] <BALYOLO> looking back at data we'd only just cleared 1000m when we flew over Milton Keynes - which meant an ascent rate of less than 1 m/s
[11:14] <fsphil> most floaters will burst shortly after sunrise
[11:14] <G8APZ> BALYOLO Hope you have a "roaming" SIM card in the backup tracker

[11:14] <eroomde> yes it's probably floating
[11:14] <eroomde> that's barely any ascent rate at all
[11:15] <BALYOLO> Yep we have a GSM that will kick in once it drops below 1000m

[11:15] <SpeedEvil> BALYOLO: It doesn't always do that - especially if it's coming down rapidly - and landing in a hollow.
[11:15] <BALYOLO> I have reviewed the filling - it appears that Sammy and Ben did not follow procedure
[11:15] <fsphil> where was it launched from?

[11:18] <BALYOLO> pity - I'd go with a 0.6 m/s ascent rate and payload of 1.1 kg
[11:19] <BALYOLO> so looks like it went NE for a long time before it hit the jet stream, then started heading SE
[11:19] <eroomde> tongue in cheek of course, but you do want to be aiming for an ascent rate in the rnage of 4-5m/s

[11:19] <fsphil> on the plus side, you must have loads of gas left
[11:19] <BALYOLO> Sammy is one crazy fool
[11:20] <eroomde> well, also the tracker launching without a gps lock - definitely worth checking it's all nominal three times before letting go
[11:20] <BALYOLO> lol - yep about 50% more than we should have I guess
[11:20] <fsphil> where you measuring the neck lift of the balloon while filling it BALYOLO?
[11:20] <eroomde> although i don't know if it was working but then lost lock immediately after launch. as far as i know no-one received any packets from it with a gps lock

[11:23] <BALYOLO> daveake - harsh :)
[11:23] <UpuWork> BALYOLO sorry about yesterday
[11:24] <UpuWork> are you planning on launching again ?
[11:24] <eroomde> the problem with guestimating is that lift is proportional to the cube of balloon diameter. s if your guess of diameter is off by, say, 15%, your lift will be only just over half what you need
[11:24] <BALYOLO> we'll have another go in the next few weeks; I'm sure they will have learned from it :0
[11:24] <UpuWork> I'll replace the Habduino foc
[11:24] <UpuWork> as the code was my fault
[11:24] <cuddykid> up
[11:24] <UpuWork> however few questions
[11:24] <UpuWork> the GPS antenna where was it in relation to cameras etc ?
[11:24] <BALYOLO> UpuWork - fire away
[11:25] <UpuWork> and what cameras were in the payload ?
[11:25] <BALYOLO> I'll get the launch team to answer - 1 sec
[11:25] <G8APZ> Upu some code "walkthroughs" with others may be in order!!

[11:27] <BALYOLO> The gps reciever was in its own corner away from any electrical equipm
[11:27] <BALYOLO> only polystyrene around it
[11:27] <UpuWork> did the payload spend a significant amount of time in the car or somewhere before it was launched ?
[11:27] <BALYOLO> same as last launch when it worked
[11:28] <UpuWork> you managed to get a bug which I've not seen or been able to reproduce in about a year and a half
[11:28] <BALYOLO> no, turned on and flashing green only 20 mins before launch
[11:28] <UpuWork> but it was always generated when the GPS was jammed by something like a camera
[11:29] <eroomde> did you decode the signal?
[11:32] <fsphil> the chinese ebay cameras are good at blocking gps

[11:35] <navrac_work> habes in my blind spot - a two storey tin roofed huge barn
[11:35] <daveake> I was away (making a payload ...) and dl-fldigi happened to tun itself in :)
[11:35] <BALYOLO> 13.05
[11:35] <fsphil> we'll have dl-fldigi making tea soon
[11:35] <eroomde> BALYOLO: did it have a gps lock on the ground - did you decode the telemetry?
[11:36] <navrac_work> ah still got habe
[11:36] <BALYOLO> It had gps lock (flashing green) but we hadn't decoded
[11:37] <eroomde> you really really must do that
[11:37] <daveake> Never ever launch without decoding (and preferably uploading) on the ground.
[11:37] <eroomde> it's mad to let go of a balloon without checking the telemetry looks sane
[11:37] <eroomde> really mad
[11:38] <UpuWork> As far as we can tell from M0JCU's initial upload it never had a lock
[11:38] <G8APZ> I make the shift nearer 480
[11:38] <G8APZ> 22dB/n in Essex
[11:38] <navrac_work> well lets face it we always make mistakes on our first launch and second.. and third..
[11:38] <gonzo_> traces of telem in poole
[11:39] <eroomde> navrac_work: sure, but people who don't have a working decoding solution at launch almost invariably go wrong
[11:39] <eroomde> there's mistakes and there's silly
[11:40] <daveake> HABE has some gas in it
[11:40] <navrac_work> true, but until you've done one launch you don't realise what is important
[11:40] <G8APZ> HABE sigs not stable... drifting up/down
[11:40] <eroomde> you do if you have people telling you what's important
[11:40] <G8APZ> not decoding here either!
[11:40] <gonzo_> no-one ever learns by other's mistahkes
[11:41] <gonzo_> nice short telem strings though
[11:41] <fsphil> our first launch was done very carefully, following all the guides on ukhas.org.uk
[11:42] <fsphil> and two radio trackers :)
[11:42] <fsphil> both chase cars had receivers

[12:20] <G8APZ> Something I never understood... why do payloads hang on many metres of cord? Is there something relevant with a long bit of cord?
[12:20] <craag> G8APZ: More cord keeps the payload more stable
[12:21] <jonsowman> reduce swing period
[12:21] <craag> Also increases the chance of something not being up the tree that you can pull on
[12:21] <G8APZ> really? seems like a pendulum swinging to me!
[12:21] <Steve_G0TDJ> Makes sense
[12:21] <jonsowman> \propto sqrt(L/g)
[12:21] <jonsowman> G8APZ: indeed it is ^

[15:37] <fsphil> last time I had two payloads in one box, one antenna was out the bottom, the other out the top
[15:37] <craag> ^^ or that
[15:38] <fsphil> which has the bonus of meaning one antenna should definitly survive landing

[16:41] <es5nhc> If you are working rainfall scatter and doppler shifts from two stations at adjacent directions coming from same section of the cloud appear in opposite directions, it is time to run to cellar ;) /Theoretically/
[16:41] <fsphil> not long until the predicted burst altitude
[16:41] <es5nhc> Weather radars here in Estonia are at C band. 5 point something centimeter wavelength

[16:47] <Geoff-G8DHE> Is this burst ?
[16:47] <aadamson> really quick is the protocol to send data to the hab databases public? the one that dl-fldigi uses?
[16:47] <Steve_G0TDJ> Burst!
[16:47] <G8APZ> Pop!!!
[16:48] <G8APZ> dropping like a stone.. strange appearance to telemetry sigs
[16:49] <wd8mnv> maybe spinning fast?
[16:49] <Steve_G0TDJ> Is it fast through lack of air?
[16:49] <G8APZ> yes, probably getting a battering at speed!!
[16:50] <G8APZ> 1% air up there I think
[16:50] <x-f> aadamson, yes, there is a link to the documentation on habitat
[16:50] <Steve_G0TDJ> The 'chute won't be good for a while
[16:50] <aadamson> yeah I found it... thanks...
[16:51] <G6WTR> this is 7,800ft minute! wow and when it hits the ground?
[16:51] <SIbot1> In real units: 7,800 ft = 2377 m
[16:51] <aadamson> just thinking ahead wondering about some US stuff (long ways off and lots of unknowns) but was curious
[16:51] <G8APZ> M0RPI-mob waiting under the flight path I see!!! Chase gets there first!
[16:51] <G6WTR> ok lets try 8000 and see what SIbot does!
[16:51] <aadamson> didn't it have *parachutes* I thought I saw those in the streamers and what would it's descent rate be if under a small chute
[16:52] <G6WTR> 8000ft
[16:52] <SIbot1> In real units: 8000 ft = 2438 m
[16:52] <G8APZ> FT 847 transceiver

[16:53] <SIbot1> In real units: 847 ft = 258 m
[16:53] <G8APZ> Gotcha!!
[16:53] <G6WTR> are so its auto put in ft it does the work !
[16:53] <PE2BZ> my 2 ft hurt
[16:53] <SIbot1> In real units: 2 ft = 0.61 m
[16:53] <G6WTR> SI bot whay cant you work the other way round?
[16:53] <es5nhc> My 2 feet do not hurt
[16:53] <SIbot1> In real units: 2 ft = 0.61 m
[16:53] <G8APZ> on the end of my legs I have two feet
[16:54] <x-f> because it likes SI units :P
[16:54] <PE2BZ> On which end ?
[16:54] <eroomde> yo, what's 30m/s descent at 20km equates to a sea-level landing vertical velocity of 8m/s
[16:54] Action: es5nhc also likes SI units
[16:54] <eroomde> which is kind of high
[16:54] <G6WTR> but not 0.61M?!
[16:54] <G8APZ> it needs a digit then!!
[16:54] <eroomde> that wasn't a question, sorry
[16:54] <es5nhc> 2 ft = 0.6096 m
[16:54] <SIbot1> In real units: 2 ft = 0.61 m
[16:54] <eroomde> what i meant to say way, 30m/s vertical at 20km alt means 8m/s at sea-level
[16:55] <eroomde> 22 m/s at 18km equates to 7m/s

[16:59] <x-f> we too
[17:00] <G6WTR> its 99999M!
[17:00] <x-f> but 30 ft is 10 meters so it looks like he's ignoring it anyway
[17:00] <SIbot1> In real units: 30 ft = 9.14 m
[17:00] <Laurenceb_> 1/0 lbs
[17:00] <SIbot1> In real units: 0 lbs = 0 g
[17:00] <cuddykid> all GoPros worked well from today's flight - in fact, got them back with pretty much full batt. 6AAs charing each camera seemed to work a treat
[17:00] <Laurenceb_> Nan lbs
[17:00] <Laurenceb_> -1 lbs
[17:00] <SIbot1> In real units: 1 lbs = 454 g
[17:00] <es5nhc> well, 1 ft equals 30,48 cm... so yeah, 30 ft is 9.14 meters
[17:00] <SIbot1> In real units: 1 ft = 0.30 m
[17:00] <g0pai_ian_> Observation: 434.500,10MHz seemed the more stable frequency over the flight. 434.649,49 drifted high during flight. So interested if tx were both same type?
[17:01] <G6WTR> Dont think SI bot is right! its 3.2808 conversion! surley you dont want me to work out how wrong it is?

[20:10] <edusupport> Is it legal to use a transmitter to send a low frequency signal to locate the payload on the ground (i think somone mentioned it last night), and could it be active during the whole flight?
[20:10] <mclane> what is low frequency?
[20:10] <edusupport> 1hz
[20:10] <edusupport> like a pulse
[20:10] <SpeedEvil> hah
[20:11] <SpeedEvil> Where do you plan to get the 300000km long antenna?
[20:11] <mclane> how do you want to detect that?
[20:11] <mclane> yea, large antenna!
[20:12] <edusupport> Ok maybe i am explaining it wrong lol short burst high frequency
[20:13] <mikestir_> you can DF the normal RTTY beacon from a good distance on the ground
[20:13] <mikestir_> even if it's too weak to decode you can still get a bearing

[21:17] <edusupport> Ok 1hz oscillator + NTX2 thats what I meant but can we use it
[21:18] <mikestir_> you mean so you have a 1 hz on/off beep to listen for?
[21:19] <edusupport> Yes i have it running but I just want to know is there any reason why we cant use it as far as HAB goes
[21:19] <fsphil> why not just transmit rtty?
[21:19] <mikestir_> it would be legal, but as fsphil says
[21:19] <edusupport> Its a standby we are using a pi
[21:20] <mikestir_> as a backup beacon, yes it would be fine
[21:20] <mikestir_> you'd have the issue of getting two antennas on the payload without them interfering though
[21:21] <Geoff-G8DHE> A plain carrier is easier to DF then any pulsed signal
[21:21] <Geoff-G8DHE> maybe 30 seconds on 1 minute off to allow you to get to another location for a cross bearing or longer gap id power is concern
[21:22] <edusupport> We have a pi with a few sensors picam etc how far away would they have to be
[21:22] <mikestir_> the problem with a carrier is that it would be hard to identify against possible interferers
[21:22] <mikestir_> just DFing the rtty is almost as good as a dead carrier, but also has the advantage of being positively identifiable
[21:23] <edusupport> Geoff-G8DHE good idea thanks
[21:23] <Geoff-G8DHE> woudn't dispute that give it a tone modulation, but don't pulse it, the brain works on hearing the noise level increase decrase as you rotate aerial
[21:23] <Geoff-G8DHE> pulsing rapidly even 1 second on/off is to fast
[21:24] <SpeedEvil> 20hz is ok
[21:24] <SpeedEvil> much slower than 10 is not
[21:25] <mikestir_> take decent headphones for the receiver. you will probably pick the right bearing on what might seem like gut feeling even before you can hear the tone
[21:26] <mikestir_> we managed about 2 miles, wrong side of a ridge and payload antenna bent up underneath on the ground
[21:28] <mfa298> if you're doing anything more than just a simple on/off (555 timer circuit) then you're probably using an arduino so why not add a gps and have it send lat/long as well as a proper backup transmitter
[21:30] <edusupport> It is a 555 but could use a pro mini :)
[21:34] <tweetBot> @NORB_HAB: NORB 4 stencil is finally complete! Getting nearer to the flight of N-1 ;) #ukhas http://t.co/yhUhOuZQ0N
[21:41] <mfa298> using something like a 555 will give something really simple. but as others said for DFing you want something that's distinct (so you know it's your basic tracker and not some other random device) which might be pushing a single 555 a bit far.

[22:02] <Pascend-Ross> Does anyone ever use microwave for tracking habs?
[22:03] <fsphil> don't believe any one has
[22:03] <fsphil> it would be quite difficult
[22:03] <Lunar_Lander> 2.4 GHz and so on?
[22:03] <SpeedEvil> 470MHz is most way to microwave
[22:03] <Lunar_Lander> only for ATV on the Continent as far as I know
[22:03] <mfa298> Pascend-Ross: it's been talked about (2.4GHz and 5GHz) but I think the thought is that the link budget might be an issue - airborne doesn't allow that much power
[22:04] <fsphil> I'll fly a 2.4ghz module at some point
[22:04] <fsphil> just to see
[22:04] <Lunar_Lander> a professor at the university of applied science in Münster, germany, whom I know, launched a live videolink on his HABs
[22:04] <Lunar_Lander> and he used something in the Gigahertz range
[22:04] <Lunar_Lander> and homemade parabolic antennas on the ground
[22:05] <fsphil> very likely one of the amateur bands
[22:05] <mfa298> If I ever get the bits working I'd like to try the wifi idea to try video streaming even if it's only good for a couple of km
[22:05] <fsphil> 1.3ghz or similar
[22:05] <fsphil> indeed
[22:05] <fsphil> I'll probably set mine up as an access point
[22:05] <Pascend-Ross> I was jist looking at what they did with red bull stratos, seems like they used 2GHz microwave
[22:05] <mfa298> I ought to spend a bit more time getting it working locally then try some range tests
[22:06] <mfa298> Pascend-Ross: we're mostly limited to ISM bands/powers unless you want to pay (and potentially show the technical expertise) to get some experimental permit
[22:07] <daveake> I have a 1.3GHz pair here to have a play with
[22:08] <Pascend-Ross> I mean...streaming at 60 frames full HD....I want! I should probably start with ssdv and work up :D
[22:08] <fsphil> lol
[22:08] <fsphil> my next flight might have "video"
[22:10] <mikestir_> there's some interest at my local AR club in tracking a microwave downlink. They have an az/el rotator on top of a lighthouse
[22:10] <mfa298> Pascend-Ross: unless you have a special license (i.e. experimental permit) you'll struggle with 60fps full frame (although 60fps sounds somewhat american)
[22:11] <mfa298> 24/25 (so 48/50 doubled up) sounds better for UK

[22:24] <aadamson> http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/__26830__2_4Ghz_4_Channel_AV_Transmitter_500mW_FPV.html - the FPV RC guys use all kinds of these, they are avaible on 900mhz, 1.2, 1.3, 2.4, 5.8, etc
[22:25] <aadamson> various output powers too
[22:25] <Darkside> analog TV is doable
[22:25] <Darkside> though VSB ATV will work better than the FM ATV those moduls will do
[22:26] <aadamson> there are all kinds of options, really small ones/light weight ones as well
[22:26] <aadamson> most just plug in their gopro video using an hdmi adapter
[22:26] <Darkside> they all do FM tv though
[22:26] <mfa298> aadamson: technically not legal to use airborne in the UK (at 500mW I'm not sure it's even legal on the ground)
[22:26] <aadamson> even if in the ism band?
[22:26] <Darkside> yp
[22:26] <Darkside> theres power limits
[22:27] <aadamson> I now the RC guys in the UK do FPV so Im sure there are options
[22:27] <mfa298> from memory 10mW on 2.4GHz airborne (possibly 100mW on the ground)
[22:27] <Darkside> a lot of people do it without regard for the laws...
[22:27] <aadamson> well, the fpv guys all use high power from the air, as it's a downlink primarily to google based RX
[22:27] <mfa298> I think most of the FPV people ignore the power limits (hence the technically not legal)
[22:27] <Darkside> it definitely happens here
[22:27] <aadamson> yeah same here on ham bands
[22:28] <Darkside> anyway, you want to b checking the link budgetrs
[22:29] <Darkside> we did a link budget for 23cm FM ATV once, and even with about 30dBi gain on the ground, plus a preamp, the maximum distance for video was about 40km
[22:29] <mfa298> but in general the HAB people try to adhere to the law. Partly as we would cause issues over a much larger areas - FPV is limited to around 150m (from memory) so isn't going to impact that larger an area.
[22:29] jedas (~gedas@ left irc: Ping timeout: 241 seconds
[22:30] <aadamson> 150 meters... no, they are now using long range system and it's very typical to see reports of 10's of k's of meters in distance
[22:30] <Darkside> .. which sounds like they're seriously breaching the power limits
[22:30] <aadamson> again, perhaps at risk of the law, but I see reports of that all the time.
[22:30] <mikestir_> sounds like they're breaching the "eyes on" UAV laws as well
[22:31] <aadamson> hehe... yeah perhaps

[22:37] <aadamson> and yes, 2.4ghz - 10mw, 5.8 - 25mw

[23:21] Action: Willdude wants to hack the doorbell we just got
[23:21] <myself> Because pretty soon someone will find a $10 peripheral that can transmit in some useful range, and they'll write a driver for it, and if the work's already been done in a more-open way, it'll port easily
[23:22] <myself> it'd be like using an oscilloscope to decode serial. If you didn't know what the signal was, you could use the 'scope traces to learn how to build a uart. That seems silly, but now imagine that the uart wasn't invented yet.
