[09:54] <fsphil> it'll be listed as despatching from somewhere in england
[09:54] <amell> loads of the items are way overpriced. like 2-3 times retail - whats the point of that

[09:59] <fsphil> ooh not heard of that one before gonzo__

[10:00] <mattbrejza> fldigi hasnt got it
[10:01] <gonzo__> would be nice to have the autotune for sdrs, so it will find sigs automagically. Though that could be a prob with the amoutnt of crud in the LPD band
[10:01] <mattbrejza> my decoder looks for fsk signals
[10:01] <mattbrejza> and it can always try to decode more than one potental signal at once
[10:02] <fsphil> what is it looking for?
[10:02] <mattbrejza> it looks for peaks

[10:08] <mfa298> there's something near here that keeps giving large bursts of qrm on the frequency
[10:08] <mattbrejza> mfa298: must be pretty local to you, nothing on astra
[10:09] <mattbrejza> not sure if floating, falling or dodgy gps :/
[10:10] <mfa298> I'm mostly decodign still although I'm not sure id want to find the signal in the noise.

[10:11] <mattbrejza> it should be pointed out there is a oneway valve in the neck of this balloon
[10:11] <mfa298> there's been a few steps down in the altitude so could be burst - or leak
[10:12] <mattbrejza> descent too slow for burst
[10:12] <mfa298> dropped ~500m from it's peak so I'd guess it's on the way down.

[10:21] <UpuWork> eh
[10:21] <UpuWork> 2300 meters ?
[10:22] <fsphil> it's not a burst, looks like it's leaking

[10:25] <mfa298> looking at my dl-fldigi it looks like long went from -146.9131 to -14233.0000 to -146.9324 although it's possible that was a bad packet - I've not been watching it closely
[10:26] <mfa298> but all of those were followed by ,1267 for the altitude
[10:29] <UpuWork> is the altitude graph using 8 bits or something ?
[10:30] <fsphil> that is rather annoying
[10:30] <mfa298> I think the blame is being put on an adafruit gps and assuming it's not keeping a 3d lock
[10:31] <gonzo__> lost sigs here
[10:31] <craag> Hello all
[10:31] <craag> Yes adafruit GPS doesn't like 3D lock
[10:31] <fsphil> definitly dropping then
[10:32] <G4AIU-Eugene> lost sigs here also
[10:32] <mfa298> pretty much gone here as well
[10:32] <craag> Hopefully they've still got it in the chase car
[10:32] <mfa298> although it looks like it just returned
[10:33] <mfa298> have they done something odd with the payload antenna - it seems to be quite fady
[10:33] <gonzo__> still just a trace there on the omni, but lost on the yagi. So probably just over my local horizon now (The yagi is lower down)
[10:33] <fsphil> this is coming down slow enough to catch

[10:45] <craag> They've found the balloon
[10:46] <craag> Recovered :)
[10:47] <craag> Balloon was still inflated - they agree it's probably a leak in the valve.
[10:49] <gonzo__> a resonably first flight for them then
[10:49] <gonzo__> reasonable
[10:49] <craag> Yes :)
[10:49] <craag> They're planning to launch again later in the week
[10:49] <craag> Once they've fixed the valve
[10:52] <craag> I've got some footage of the launch, will put on youtube later.
[10:52] <gonzo__> what is the valve? An active vent?
[10:53] <craag> No, 1 way valve so they can fill and then just cut the hose with nichrome wire to release.
[10:53] <gonzo__> what's the reason for that then?
[10:53] <craag> It's an automatic launcher

[16:04] <mikestir> needed sdr for rx
[16:04] <K5KXF> right now my bandwith is at 23.040 kHz

[16:12] <K5KXF> Have you checked with anyone over here about using SS for your dart?
[16:12] <eroomde> not in my hands
[16:12] <eroomde> one of the guys working on the rocket has done a few BALLses, all that is for him to handle

[16:15] <eroomde> i'll let them worry about that
[16:15] <eroomde> never had a problem with amateur rules if you make a case for breaking them
[16:16] <K5KXF> you still coming over?
[16:16] <eroomde> far as i know. this is not a situation that is developing on a week-by-week basis
[16:16] <eroomde> will just start to worry about it soonish
[16:16] <eroomde> and design something up
[16:17] <K5KXF> roger that
[16:17] <eroomde> in the mean time i have a large experimental rocket engine taking up all my bandwidth
[16:17] <amell_> candy motor?
[16:17] <eroomde> and i'm also a train from paris to london having had a weekend break
[16:17] <K5KXF> I've switched to Galcit propellant
[16:18] <eroomde> amell_: if we define candy as oxygen and hydrogen, which burns oh so sweetly, then yes
[16:19] <K5KXF> nice
[16:19] <K5KXF> It's asphalt and potasium perclorate based
[16:19] <K5KXF> hows your rocket engine coming along?
[16:20] <K5KXF> any new photo's?
[16:20] <eroomde> there probably won't be any photos
[16:20] <eroomde> such is life
[16:20] <eroomde> but it's all going well
[16:20] <eroomde> we do have a new test stand!
[16:20] <eroomde> i can show you a photo of that

[17:21] <K5KXF> yes
[17:22] <DL7AD> yes... i built one manual. its just in the front of me on my desk. the layout has just one mistake i fixed for this one.
[17:24] <DL7AD> but i cant fly this one because i need it in may for an up-and-down balloon
[17:28] <K5KXF> your located in the UK right?
[17:29] <DL7AD> K5KXF: nope... wildau near berlin, and my american call is located in houston
[17:29] <K5KXF> that's right I was looking for you
[17:29] <DL7AD> where? in houston?
[17:30] <K5KXF> you planning to market that tracker?
[17:30] <K5KXF> Yeah in Houston
[17:30] <DL7AD> well not this one.... but the next probably...
[17:31] <K5KXF> I'm in Lampasas near Austin but I have a place on the coast near Houston
[17:31] <eroomde> there seems some confusion on arocket as to what they want trackers for
[17:31] <DL7AD> K5KXF: have a look to private chat
[17:31] <eroomde> whether for recovery once landing or position tracking through flight
[17:31] <eroomde> no one has disambiguated yet
[17:32] <K5KXF> Yeah Rick Mascheck is confused about everything concerning tracking
[17:32] <K5KXF> lol
[17:33] <eroomde> hab stuff will be of little use in-flight
[17:33] <eroomde> but probably reasonable once landed

[22:34] <Maxell> woot
[22:35] <adamgreig> also kalman filtering is not really intensive
[22:35] <adamgreig> it's like, "let's hold hands and pretend everything is linear. and gaussian."
[22:36] <adamgreig> an AVR can do that
[22:36] <adamgreig> hell a PICAXE could probably do th---
[22:36] <adamgreig> nah.

[22:36] <SpeedEvil> An AVR can do it - for limited problems
[22:36] <adamgreig> I can do it in my head - for limited problems
[22:36] <SpeedEvil> In many cases you're going to need >>8 bit arithmetic.
[22:36] <SpeedEvil> And 100Hz updates on a 15 axes model...
[22:39] <Maxell> SP3OSJ quite stable right now
[22:39] <Maxell> also within range
[22:39] <mattbrejza> challenge accepted - kalman filtering on (a) picaxe(s)
[22:40] <Laurenceb> an avr cannot do kalman filtering
[22:41] <Laurenceb> yeah 15 component state vector is serious business
[22:41] <Laurenceb> enough to keep a stm32f4 fully occupied
[22:41] <bertrik> a kalman implementation is one of the things I want to do sometime, but it currently mostly black magic to me
[22:41] <Maxell> RZ6HSP aprs igate seems to RX'd SP3OSJ-12
[22:42] <Laurenceb> i played around with 15 component on stm32f3 and it wasnt up to the job
[22:42] <Laurenceb> ~100hz update rate is quite poor
[22:42] <mattbrejza> how many components on a standard quad?
[22:43] <Laurenceb> most of them are using simple complementary filters
[22:43] <Laurenceb> i think just a quaternion and gyro bias would work, so 7
[22:44] <Laurenceb> i stuck code for that on the wiki ages ago
[22:44] <Laurenceb> http://ukhas.org.uk/code:7_state_ekf_with_bias
[22:45] <mattbrejza> i didnt think kalman filtering for quads was *that* cpu intensive, but then ive never looked at it in detail (or really at all)

[22:54] <jdoePT> Did anyone tried an hydrophobic coating on the camera lens to prevent foggy images? (e.g, on a go Pro)
[22:54] <jdoePT> (on the outside of the camera (passing clouds)

[22:55] <ulfr> go pro sells some anti fog stuff, never used it tho'
[22:56] <K5KXF> ping fsphil?
[22:57] <jdoePT> yes, i've used it, it prevents condensation on the inside.. but passing clouds it seams that the water is on the outside of the lens
[23:01] <SpeedEvil> I think the only way that will 100% work is a rotating window
[23:01] <SpeedEvil> Which is unfortunately complex
[23:01] <SpeedEvil> Or an air-blast blowing out of the lens
[23:02] <SpeedEvil> http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Rotating_windshield_wiper.jpg
[23:02] <Lunar_Lander> cool!
[23:04] <jdoePT> what about http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Superhydrophobic_coating and neverwet like coatings?
[23:04] <SpeedEvil> jdoePT: those will mostly work
[23:05] <SpeedEvil> But if you get actual rain falling on the lens, it takes a while
[23:06] <jdoePT> yesterday we had a launch, there was no rain, but the humidity was high.. and temperature cold.. my guess is that fog turned into ice..
[23:06] <jdoePT> on the outside of the lens
[23:06] <Laurenceb> maybe heat the lens..
[23:07] <Laurenceb> but honestly im not sure if this is a huge problem
[23:08] <jdoePT> you guys neve got bad footage due to fog and water in front of the lens?
[23:08] <SpeedEvil> Generally not - with most cameras that tend to run hot
[23:08] <K5KXF> after thermopause it's not a problem

[23:08] <SpeedEvil> jdoePT: rarely
[23:09] <jdoePT> take a look http://www.balua.org/we-found-it-2/
[23:09] <jdoePT> first image is at takeoof
[23:09] <jdoePT> and the flight lasted 2h
[23:10] <K5KXF> nice
[23:10] <jdoePT> and the fog lasted all of it.. it was a gopro2 (they do get very hot, mostly the batery)
[23:11] <K5KXF> they are vented dont block the vent!
[23:11] <K5KXF> :)
[23:11] <jdoePT> it does get better with the altitude but still isn't good
[23:11] <jdoePT> ? you me send it with the open housing??
[23:11] <jdoePT> mean*
[23:12] <K5KXF> where you blocking it's vent?

[23:13] <K5KXF> it's a slot
[23:14] <K5KXF> dont block that and you should have no problem
[23:15] <jdoePT> i'm not quite sure I understand, you mean, use this one; http://www.dogcamsport.co.uk/images/uploads/GoPro-HD-Vented-Back-Door/back_door_vented.jpg and note THIS: http://img.dxcdn.com/productimages/sku_234759_1.jpg
[23:16] <K5KXF> oh! lol yeah you cant use that case
[23:16] <K5KXF> it's waterproof
[23:16] <jdoePT> does the go pro survive? in case it falls into the water it will be lost..
[23:17] <K5KXF> Ok well if you feel like you need the case put a 1/2 inch hole in the bottom amd the top
[23:17] <K5KXF> But yes I've been flying gopro's since 2008 without that case
[23:17] <jdoePT> nice! I never had the balls =P
[23:17] <K5KXF> lol
[23:18] <K5KXF> it's not needed unless your unlucky and land in water
[23:18] <jdoePT> well you put it inside the syroform box right?
[23:18] <K5KXF> I've never lost one
[23:18] <K5KXF> it will fly bare in the wind if you want

[23:19] <K5KXF> no issues
[23:19] <K5KXF> buy you can put it in a box just dont block the vent
[23:20] <jdoePT> ok next friday i'll try it
[23:20] <K5KXF> my fav shot https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10150707509246224&set=a.10150707509241224.451566.213171526223&type=1&theater
[23:20] <jdoePT> do you use a gp2 or 3?
[23:21] <K5KXF> We flew 6 gopros together and got some panoramas
[23:21] <K5KXF> I still us GP 2
[23:21] <K5KXF> becaus I still have em
[23:23] <jdoePT> we use gp2 cause the batery pack for the 3+ is out of sotck..
[23:23] <Laurenceb> its heading up now
[23:23] <jdoePT> and for long flights we need it..
[23:23] <Laurenceb> less than 3 hours to sunrise
[23:24] <jdoePT> (thanks K5KXF)
[23:24] <jdoePT> Laurenceb what's going do happen?
[23:25] <Laurenceb> dawn might clear up the altitude issues
[23:25] <Laurenceb> if its icing up or something
[23:25] <K5KXF> APRS?
[23:25] <jdoePT> ?
[23:25] Action: Laurenceb zzz

[23:28] <dariogrsilva> the panos is awesome
[23:29] <K5KXF> Well thanks but it was made with the cases on much to my consternation
[23:29] <K5KXF> and that's why so foggy
[23:29] <K5KXF> lol
[23:30] <K5KXF> Dont use the case or make sure you vent them and that wont happen
