[00:01] <gonzo_> fsphil, are you trying to take dave's crown, launching in shitty wx?
[00:01] <fsphil> looks like. though I've done it before
[00:01] <gonzo_> (Mine was absolute downpour)
[00:01] <fsphil> almost every launch I've done was either snow/ice or wind
[00:01] <fsphil> this weekend appears to be both snow and wind
[00:02] <amell> eh? not here it isnt
[00:02] <amell> where u at? norway?
[00:05] <amell> do i need this? http://www.nevadaradio.co.uk/antenna-accessories/lightning-arrestors/nevada-uhf-090
[00:06] <mfa298> they're potentialy worth having - but you want to use N connectors where possible not pl259/so239
[00:06] <mfa298> you'de also need some good wire and a good ground rod to connect it to
[00:07] <mfa298> and it may not fully protect against a strike

[00:21] <gonzo_> lightening arrestpors are only any good for discharging static and induced voltage from nearby strikes. A direct strike there is not much you can do
[00:22] <gonzo_> I'd not mess about with arrestors on UHF, probably will add loss
[00:24] <gonzo_> a bit of hookup wire and a resistor in the shack would be more than enough to sort any static buildups. it all depends on how you wire the shack end as to whether you even need that
[00:25] <mfa298> I'd think of them as a bit of added insurance in case you're unable to take suitable precautions (disconnecting things) in a storm. But it's not a replacement for taking those precautions
[00:25] <mfa298> and a bad idea if it leads you into a false sense of security
[00:25] <gonzo_> they all look to be crappy So239 stuff. And only really any point on big hf/wire ants where static will build up

[01:26] <g0pai_ian> How to influence neighbours and make friends !
[01:27] <g0pai_ian> Too easy to take a reasoned approach, ask the question and save both face and £64 into the bargain.
[01:29] <g0pai_ian> amell: RG8 or RG213, but not RG58. 58 is good for a mobile installation where runs are very short and need to bend a lot, but it's crap. I can see that with a licence, that you are going to need to take a diplomacy course too and stick a pole up so as not to blow your neighbour's TV signal away.

[08:11] <UpuWork> the habamp can do that
[08:12] <UpuWork> and it has filter
[08:14] <eroomde> i wasn't here so am perhaps missing contaxt, but what's to talk about re: powering an LNA over cax?
[08:14] <eroomde> that's how like all active antennas have worked since dinosaurs walked the earth
[08:18] <mfa298> I think the main bit was someone asking if they could use 25m of rg58 for hab, so the answer was along the lines of only if you have a preamp at the antenna

[11:35] <UpuWork> hey Joel_re
[11:35] <UpuWork> here ?
[11:35] <LeoBodnar> Hi Tom
[11:36] Student123 (6d835b05@gateway/web/freenode/ip. joined #highaltitude.
[11:37] <daveake> That's a great path
[11:37] <Student123> Good afternoon everyone i got a quick question and it would be splendid if you got answer this : Why is the atmega avr so popular in HAB's ?
[11:37] Amadiro (jonathri@dalvik.ping.uio.no) left irc: Excess Flood
[11:37] <fsphil> because it's so simple
[11:37] <Darkside> Student123: what would you use?
[11:37] <UpuWork> 1/ its the base of the Arduino which was until the Pi turned up very popular
[11:37] <daveake> Many people start with an Arduino and that's what those have
[11:38] <UpuWork> 2/ Because of above there is lots of code availble
[11:38] Action: daveake waits for "not a PIC"
[11:38] <fsphil> has proved itself to be rather reliable
[11:38] <fsphil> (even the PIC)
[11:38] <fsphil> but the avr is much nicer to develop for than the PIC
[11:38] Action: SP9UOB-Tom loves PICs
[11:38] <Student123> Ye why would i pick a atmega over a pic ?
[11:38] <UpuWork> thats for you to decided Student123
[11:38] <Darkside> Student123: decent compilers
[11:38] <SP9UOB-Tom> even with stupid compiler ;-)
[11:38] <Darkside> more than one register
[11:39] <fsphil> no memory banking
[11:39] <UpuWork> people will think you are old and experienced if you use a PIC
[11:39] <UpuWork> :)
[11:39] <fsphil> hah
[11:39] <daveake> :)
[11:39] <fsphil> also mad
[11:39] <fsphil> in a good way
[11:39] <SP9UOB-Tom> UpuWork: do i look old ;-) ?
[11:39] <fsphil> unless you use that PIC basic thing
[11:39] <fsphil> in which case just mad
[11:39] <Darkside> PICAXE
[11:39] <Student123> Ye the fiftydollarsat uses a pic so thats why i'm doubting :p
[11:39] <UpuWork> haha Tom
[11:40] <UpuWork> $50 sat also uses an RFM22B and I wouldnt' reocmmend that

[11:40] <Student123> ye i'm already suck with a rfm22b :/
[11:40] <Hade_> Is there a web page where I can find more info on B-41?
[11:40] <SP9UOB-Tom> UpuWork: im only 39 (today) :-)
[11:40] <Student123> stuck*
[11:40] <fsphil> I've used both and I definitly prefer the avr
[11:40] <fsphil> although PIC's datasheets where a bit easier to read
[11:40] <DL1SGP> good day folks!

[11:41] <SP9UOB-Tom> UpuWork: really? Impossible !
[11:41] <Student123> Just seeing what the general opnions are and since i've never done a HAB before

[11:41] <fsphil> you're already on the right start, as you didn't ask about a Pi
[11:41] <Student123> Ye i used that thing last year on my quadcopter oh god
[11:41] <SP9UOB-Tom> LOL: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K183YETUB0Y
[11:42] <nats`> Student123 you can use whatever you want just needs to be low power
[11:42] <nats`> so take what you're familiar with
[11:42] <nats`> even cortex could be a good deal now
[11:42] <nats`> with some cortex running at hundreds uA/MHz
[11:43] <Student123> Ye think i'll start woth a atmega 328p
[11:43] <Student123> with*
[11:43] <gonzo_> what's the actual telem freq for B41?? (Not dial freq)

[11:49] <LeoBodnar> heh cool
[11:50] <fiftydollarsat> Student123: $50SAT uses a 40X2 PICAXE, its a PIC 18F4522 which runs the PICAXE Basic firmware.

[11:54] <fiftydollarsat> Which RFM22D and Which antenna ?

[11:58] <UpuWork> The RFM22B is end of life
[11:59] <UpuWork> and I would strongly suggest you make your own based on the newer SI chips
[11:59] <UpuWork> its not that hard
[11:59] <fsphil> it wasn't a terribly good life anyway
[11:59] <mattbrejza> is there a tcxo si4060 breakout?
[11:59] <UpuWork> no I'm suprised its worked so well (at all) in this $50 sat
[11:59] <mattbrejza> (before i make my own)
[11:59] <Darkside> theres a few breakouts on alixpress
[11:59] <UpuWork> not that I'm aware of with a TCXO on
[11:59] <nats`> yep there are
[11:59] <Student123> upuwoek : i've read so and i want to use a SI4464 but i'm stuck with the rfm22b for now
[11:59] <UpuWork> unstick :)
[11:59] <nats`> they come from a bigger kit with a mainboard
[12:00] <nats`> http://www.silabs.com/products/wireless/EZRadioPRO/Pages/Si4461-868-PDK.aspx
[12:00] <nats`> mattbrejza only take the radio board
[12:00] <mattbrejza> will probably be cheaper to make my own rather than get an official dev board @{
[12:00] <nats`> the filter is fitted for 868 or 915 but it's not a problem to use it for 430
[12:00] <UpuWork> as an engineer sometimes you have to tell management "this isn't suitable" "this needs changing" "I need more money"
[12:00] <mattbrejza> :P
[12:01] <fiftydollarsat> The filter is a LFCN490D, not fitted on the flight board. Its really there as on option for terestrial use as the RFM22B puts out quitye a lot of 3rd harmonic.
[12:01] <UpuWork> the problem with $50 sat for me anyway is every time it does an orbit and transmits I have to eat yet more of my hat
[12:01] <nats`> http://www.silabs.com/products/wireless/ezradio/pages/ezradiotestcards.aspx <= mattbrejza 50$
[12:01] <nats`> ;)
[12:02] <navrac_work> as a manager you sometimes have to say 'it will have to do' and 'theres no more money'
[12:02] <UpuWork> lol
[12:02] <UpuWork> anyway afk
[12:02] <mattbrejza> i guess $50 is better than i was assuming it would be
[12:02] <nats`> 50$ is just the breakout board with the si44xx
[12:02] <LeoBodnar> i have been ranting about Arduino RF breakout
[12:03] <mattbrejza> are they txco?
[12:03] <LeoBodnar> which is just a bare Si4463
[12:03] <mattbrejza> tcxo rather
[12:03] <fiftydollarsat> As for the 'end of life' of the RFM22B, that may be the case as far as HopeRF are concerned, but there a few other Si4432 modules out there, which are likley going to be around for a while yet.
[12:03] <LeoBodnar> if it is it would be special Arduino TCXO
[12:04] <nats`> mattbrejza no xtal
[12:04] <LeoBodnar> sorry, it's an Arduino crystal https://www.tindie.com/products/DORJI_COM/arduino-si4463-compact-transceiver-module/
[12:04] <Student123> Quick question what i be able to receive rfm22b in rtty at 50 baud or so on a icom 910 ?

[12:05] <mattbrejza> meh ill do it myself
[12:05] <nats`> pretty easy
[12:05] <nats`> the input filtering is a joke
[12:05] <fiftydollarsat> As for a 'replacement' for the Si4432 itself, the Si4463 (Dorji do one) has to be the best bet, as its 'packet' compatible with the Si4432 in the RFM22B.
[12:06] <nats`> just for information mattbrejza if you use the GPIOs on top left of the chip
[12:06] <nats`> put a little inductance on them
[12:06] <mattbrejza> er ok :/
[12:06] <nats`> it's not mandatory but it can avoid some error
[12:06] <nats`> theyr are near the RX path
[12:07] <mattbrejza> a resistor to reduce the rise time is probably also just as good?
[12:08] <nats`> I always prefer inductor or ferrite bead but it should be enough
[12:08] <nats`> actually it works without it
[12:08] <nats`> it's just to be sure
[12:08] <mattbrejza> is that on the spi stuff or just gpio?
[12:08] <nats`> gpio :)
[12:08] <nats`> spi is on the opposite side
[12:08] <mattbrejza> ok
[12:08] <nats`> but 2 of the 4 gpios are near the rx path
[12:08] <mattbrejza> oh i see

[12:11] <mattbrejza> shame the matching/filter is more effort on this than the cc1101 stuff (due to the balun/filter all in one component)

[12:14] <PE2G> Hallo DL1SGP, no, I'm afraid not.
[12:14] <nats`> mattbrejza yes and no
[12:14] <DL1SGP> bedankt :)
[12:14] <nats`> you can make the filter lighter basically it's a low pass
[12:14] <PE2G> First greens from B-41
[12:14] <nats`> you can even use the rx path in single ended
[12:15] <nats`> but in that case you loose 3dB
[12:15] <G8APZ> Dial freq?
[12:15] <Geoff-G8DHE> <2014-03-20T12:12Z Contestia @ 434498826+1000>
[12:15] <mattbrejza> the cc1101 can use a single 50p component for both rx and tx matching, much easier :P
[12:15] <G8APZ> RR Thanks
[12:16] <nats`> easier yes, much... :D
[12:16] <nats`> anyway if you feel more confortable with the TI why not using it ?

[12:50] <LeoBodnar> yes it sets the maximum output voltage

[13:01] <aadamson> LeoBodnar, when you run dual band, is the lpf on the si chips just the 434mhz version and you just run 2mtrs through that same lpf/match?

[13:03] <Laurenceb__> APRS is back
[13:04] <aadamson> I guess what I'm trying to understand is that the Si chip wants a frequency specific match/lfp and so how are you handling that on both 70cm and 2mtrs?
[13:05] <Laurenceb__> x-f.lv shows the battery voltage climbing
[13:05] <Laurenceb__> looks like the battery is working ok
[13:05] <nats`> aadamson it's jsut a low pass and the matching is loosy
[13:06] <nats`> you just need to be sure to not overload the PA
[13:06] <G8APZ> I barely hear at the moment, but FLDIGI has heard something!! It says "Before RSID: <<2014-03-20T13:02Z DominoEX 16 @ 434500+1076"

[13:06] <LeoBodnar> 2m through the 70cm filter aadamson
[13:06] <aadamson> nats`, so it's the same 434mhz match/lpf that he usually uses, and he's just running 2mtr through it ^ - thanks LeoBodnar
[13:06] <aadamson> is aprs running at the same 10mw?
[13:07] <LeoBodnar> yeah
[13:07] <aadamson> that'd be one way to not overload the pa :)
[13:07] <LeoBodnar> I use Si4060 so it naturally does not have oomph to destroy itself
[13:07] <aadamson> it's the 13 or 16 db part?
[13:07] <LeoBodnar> it would be an issue with 4463
[13:07] <Laurenceb__> LeoBodnar: rf switch and 2m/70cm matching networks?
[13:07] <LeoBodnar> 13dB
[13:08] <aadamson> Laurenceb__, I'm thinking of that very thing actually
[13:08] <nats`> with the 4463 and his 20dBm you can easily blow the PA
[13:08] <aadamson> just wondering how one will effect the other with a comment antenna connection
[13:08] <nats`> in fact the 4463 have a different matching schematic
[13:08] <Laurenceb__> maybe a SPST
[13:08] <LeoBodnar> yeah it's a different appnote
[13:09] <Laurenceb__> with a "plug in" matching addition
[13:09] <Laurenceb__> for 2m / 70cm
[13:09] <Laurenceb__> i have no clue if this would actually be possible ;P
[13:10] <nats`> Laurenceb__ yes in the appnote they use a rf switch for an example of separate RX/TX
[13:10] <nats`> you can use it in reverse
[13:10] <Laurenceb__> i know
[13:10] <Laurenceb__> yeah
[13:11] <Laurenceb__> i was just looking at the battery voltage, if i extrapolate the trend it seems like ~3.8v overnight
[13:11] <Laurenceb__> first nigh was amazing
[13:12] <Laurenceb__> steady 3.9v at -43C
[13:12] <Laurenceb__> i bet this could have done the arctic circle

[13:18] <aadamson> ah, so it looks like it does the same thing on aprs, it double beacons on the interval?
[13:20] <aadamson> and the interval is every minute it appears or is some of that a relay between habhub and aprs?
[13:21] <G8APZ> LeoBodnar That first block of the two quite often corrupts at start of the block....

[13:58] <aadamson> I suppose I may have answered my own question... while .5v per cell is optimum, it may be that they are in series and while you'd think that they could give 1v, goes to show how non-optimal solar can be.
[13:58] <LeoBodnar> aadamson: open circuit (and MPP) depend on temperature

[14:00] <LeoBodnar> there is a great website somewhere, let me search for it
[14:02] <aadamson> hmm... then I'm even more confused (just when I thought I had it figured out)... if the cells are .5v optimal, and they are in parallel, I wouldn't expect the cell volts to be higher than .5v?

[14:09] <Geoff-G8DHE> Typical B-41 goes past 300+Kms and QRM turns back off !
[14:10] <aadamson> LeoBodnar, I'm still a bit confused (probably a lot actually). The cells are .5v optimal right? in parallel, the total voltage of the two will be .5v but the current will be the combined current. In series, it would be double the volts and basically single cell current. Similar to batteries (ignoring all the pv losses)... And yet you are at .6-.7v (non-optimal) Are these cells not .5v cells?
[14:11] <aadamson> and yes, I'm purposely ignoring the *mismatch stuff that can happen with pv cells in the above*
[14:12] <craag> aadamson: If he's not pulling optimal current (less than optimal), the voltage will rise.
[14:12] <craag> Also the optimal voltage rises at low temperature for pv cells
[14:13] <aadamson> craag, yes I understand that, but I thought the .5v was optimal, any lower temp, etc would be less etc?
[14:13] <aadamson> I'm just curious how he has a higher voltage than .5v in a loaded condition when in parallel on cells that are .5v optimal
[14:13] <aadamson> hence why I thought they were in series
[14:13] <aadamson> but then again I may not understand (don't actually) pv
[14:14] <craag> Because he's not pulling the optimal current, therefore there is loss vdrop in the panel impedance
[14:14] <craag> which means more vout
[14:14] <craag> and you get more vout at low temperature anyway
[14:14] <aadamson> oh, joy the mysteries of pv...
[14:14] <craag> because pv loves low temp
[14:14] <aadamson> ok, I guess I get to look foward to some experimentation... :)
[14:14] <craag> yeah... I had a full semester module on it :P

[14:17] <aadamson> yeah I read that as well... :)
[14:17] <craag> if you cover one cell, it's impedance skyrockets, blocking current from the other cell
[14:18] <craag> This is why you can reduce a large 12v panel output by about 90% by covering only 10% of it

[14:24] <eroomde> indeed, the risk is more the gps front end picking up from the gps directly, on the other side of any antennas and filters

[14:39] <Geoff-G8DHE> Our DIY shops in the UK do 1m lengths of Alu/brass/steel shapes which aren't too bad a price given the ease of getting them.
[14:40] Action: mfa298 has a couple of dipoles made out of threaded rod from local DIY shops.
[14:41] <mfa298> I got hold of some longer threaded rod a couple of years ago with an aim to making a portable 6m dipole but I've not yet got a way to support it properly.

[14:42] <Geoff-G8DHE> they do them in 2mm-10mm sizes
[14:42] <craag> mfa298: I'd consider gamma matching those threaded rod dipoles if I did them again
[14:43] <craag> You could use a washer and a couple of nuts to adjust the feedpoint :)

[23:28] <g0pai_ian> amell* Try Moonraker for your coax - http://stores.ebay.co.uk/moonraker-eu/Coax-Cable-/_i.html?_fsub=409248019
[23:28] <amell> will this allow me to rake the moon with RF energy?
[23:29] <g0pai_ian> Sligltly cheaper, but reliable supplier, not so different from Nevada. but gives you the opportunity to buy rather than to debate it to death :)
[23:30] <amell> :)
[23:30] <g0pai_ian> Failing that, RG8, but not Rg58
[23:31] <amell> they don't seem to do 25m lengths
[23:31] <aadamson> amell, I doubt that's corrupt comments, its more likely the compressed aprs format that Leo is using right before the /qrv comment
[23:31] <amell> sorry to complicate matters
[23:32] <g0pai_ian> Well, you seemed to be looking at 100m lengths as I saw it - my eyes must be wide shut. Do I take it that you are looking for 25m? if so, at 70cm. I can recommend Aircell7
[23:33] <g0pai_ian> Not the cheapest, but better than RG213 and you only buy once in ten years and more.
[23:33] <amell> Aircell7 - £179 for 100m - yow!
[23:33] <amell> Ecoflex 10 Plus appears to be the dogs nads going by the price.
[23:35] <amell> http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Nevada-RG213TM-25-25m-length-of-low-loss-coaxial-cable-for-amateur-radio-CB-use-/400669924528?pt=UK_Mobile_Phones_Communication_Radio_Antennas&hash=item5d49c9dcb0 seems to be the best deal
[23:39] <g0pai_ian> http://www.ssb.de/product_info.php?language=en&info=p1479_Aircell-7--25m--Koaxkabel.html 67.97 Euro for 25m
[23:39] <g0pai_ian> Echoflex 10 and Echoflex 15 are very good, but as you say you have to temper the price/performance curve as well as the diameter of the cable to your own requirements.
[23:41] <g0pai_ian> What is it that they say about buying cheap and having to buy twice. Did you buy a little antenna recently, before the colinear?
[23:41] <amell> I did, but that was for the car ;)
[23:41] <g0pai_ian> OK, I'll accept that, but Aircell 7 is my recommendation.
[23:42] <g0pai_ian> RG213 is so 1960s
[23:43] <g0pai_ian> Buy your plugs to match the coax though; least you find that you are making nasty compromises, clamp plugs (like N type and BNC) are best.
[23:46] <amell> aircell 5 ok? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Cable-Aircell-5-A5-0030-ultra-low-loss-coaxial-cable-price-for-30m-length-/400675903706?pt=UK_Mobile_Phones_Communication_Radio_Antennas&hash=item5d4a2518da
[23:47] <LeoBodnar> aadamson: some digis append their own info after digipeated packet which isn't cool in my opinion. aprs.fi remembers the last comments and keeps displaying them if there are no new ones
[23:47] <LeoBodnar> since i don't have any comments these stray ones keep dragging for days sometimes
[23:47] <LeoBodnar> it's a good idea to send some comments to flush these random ones
[23:48] <LeoBodnar> i will fix that in the future
[23:48] <fsphil> that's a bit crappy
[23:49] <mfa298> amell: the important things to consider with coax is the loss at the frequency you're interested in (434MHz for the majority of HABs) the lower the loss the better.
[23:49] <mfa298> you also want to consider the size of the coax and the bend radius
[23:50] <mfa298> diameter and bend radius may impact on how you can get the coax from the antenna into where you want it. Some of the really low loss coax may not like being bent as much as something like RG213
[23:50] <Maxell> hmm, b-41's status message is weird. Seems to originate from http://aprs.fi/info/a/OZ1KEC-9
[23:51] <mfa298> also when looking up loss figures make sure you're comparing the same numbers, some places do it by 100ft others by 100m some by various other random lengths
[23:51] <SIbot> In real units: 100 ft = 30 m
[23:53] <g0pai_ian> amell* you seem to be trying to drive it by price. Aircell 7 is my recommendation. Use RG58 or RG8 in a vehicle for flexibility.
[23:53] <g0pai_ian> Otherwise, makes a good bin liner!
[23:53] <amell> Sibot: how many m is 100000000000 ft ?
[23:53] <SIbot> In real units: 100000000000 ft = 30480000 km
[23:53] <amell> SIbot: thanks, now shut up.
[23:54] <fsphil> slowly and surely we're inching towards metric
[23:54] <g0pai_ian> :)
[23:54] <mikestir> g0pai_ian: presumably you mean RG8X?
[23:55] <mikestir> RG8 is just RG213 with a solid core
[23:56] <aadamson> and for some reason the relay over aprs has lost the telemetry ...
[23:56] <g0pai_ian> Not sure to be honest, thought RG8 had an 8mm jacket diameter
[23:56] <aadamson> lost telem to habhub that is
[23:56] <aadamson> it's there on aprs
[23:57] <mikestir> afaik the original RG8 is essentially the same as RG213. The slightly thicker than RG58 stuff is confusing known as RG mini 8 or RG8X
