[07:54] <Laurenceb> what was the free lift?
[07:54] <LeoBodnar> ~2g
[07:55] <Laurenceb> interesting, quite low
[07:55] <Laurenceb> what was B-11/12 free lift?
[07:56] <Laurenceb> closer to 3?
[07:57] <Laurenceb> ages ago i was wondering about 1 gram drop masses
[07:57] <Laurenceb> you could fit a few onto the payload and drop them once a week or something
[07:57] <Laurenceb> or if altitude went very low

[08:28] <LeoBodnar> yeah we can try that
[08:28] <LeoBodnar> but if free lift gets to about 5g it will just burst with solar gain

[08:29] daveake (~daveake@daveake.plus.com) joined #highaltitude.
[08:29] <LeoBodnar> yes B-11/B-12 were 3 and 3.5g
[08:30] <LeoBodnar> B-45 was going over the sea so i did not want to risk with too much lift

[09:19] <Laurenceb_> B-45 was going over the sea so i did not want to risk with too much lift
[09:19] <Laurenceb_> i dont follow
[09:19] <Laurenceb_> is there more solar gain over the sea?
[09:22] <Laurenceb_> its annoying that we havent seen a single pico flight where we can put a final descent down to loss of helium from diffusion
[09:22] <Laurenceb_> its very hard to say what the upper flight time limit is
[09:22] <Laurenceb_> but its at least 3days per gram

[09:28] <fsphil> the ocean is a bit warmer than land during the night
[09:28] <Laurenceb_> hmm
[09:32] <Laurenceb_> i wonder if this is significant
[09:37] <SM5> The B45 trajectory is impressive. I wonder about the data link: Is data received using APRS or Contestia now? 70cm or 2m? I think it is surprising that there are som many receiving stations at the current locatoin of B-45.
[09:38] <SM5> (SM5 should have been "SM5OCI".)
[09:38] <sp2ipt> SM5: type /nick SM5OCI
[09:39] Nick change: SM5 -> SM5OCI
[09:40] <Laurenceb_> SM5: most of the telemetry has come via APRS
[09:40] <Laurenceb_> annoyingly there is no APRS in central asia
[09:40] <SM5OCI> Thanks, SP2IPT; despite the fact that I used IRC for the first time in 1989, I have never managed to get really aquainted with it...
[09:40] <Laurenceb_> and its a bit hard to come up with anything else :-S
[09:41] <SM5OCI> OK, APRS. 70cm or 2m?
[09:41] <sp2ipt> SM5OCI: np, I've had a looong break too :)
[09:41] <Laurenceb_> we were discussing SWPR the other day..
[09:41] <Laurenceb_> SM5OCI: aprs on 2m, contestia on 70cm
[09:41] <SM5OCI> I overheard (overlooked?) a conversation which discussed using other frequencies, like 10m.
[09:42] <SM5OCI> SWPR??
[09:42] <sp2ipt> Laurenceb_: got a message today my boards from dirtypcbs.com came back from the factory (it took actually one week) - should be shipped today
[09:42] <Laurenceb_> interesting

[11:38] <LeoBodnar> I have never figured out what caused altituide kick and demise of B-14 http://www.leobodnar.com/balloons/B-14/
[11:39] <Darkside> gravity waves!
[11:39] <Darkside> (generic answer to weird atmosphric stuff)
[11:39] <LeoBodnar> it's too big for gravity wave
[11:40] <Darkside> dude, gravity waves can cause effects in the *ionosphere*
[11:40] <mattbrejza> well its just gone over a mountain range
[11:40] <LeoBodnar> it was about 500m kick
[11:40] <Darkside> wave off a mountain range would do it

[11:41] <Darkside> its amazing stuff
[11:42] <LeoBodnar> soaring != floating
[11:42] <Darkside> yes, but it will give lift
[11:42] <Darkside> which may force it up
[11:43] <LeoBodnar> thermals can extend into stratosphere
[11:44] <mattbrejza> could it not just be that as air passes over the mountains it is forced up so the air density above the mountains is higher?
[11:45] <Darkside> mattbrejza: this is a common failure reason for superpressure balloons

[13:05] <eroomde> balanced?
[13:05] <Laurenceb_> oi
[13:06] <Laurenceb_> im not that incompetent Leo :P
[13:06] <Laurenceb_> the knot was for tightening the winch servo line before flight, but it resistant to vibration so it came undone and there wasnt enough control authority
[13:07] <Laurenceb_> * + wasnt resistant
[13:07] <Laurenceb_> something worth remembering when working with nylon line
[13:07] <Babs> its not bad eroomde actually
[13:07] <Babs> i have to balance it properly
[13:08] <Laurenceb_> how fast have you spun it?
[13:08] <Laurenceb_> rpm
[13:08] <eroomde> Babs: do you have an oscilloscope?
[13:08] <Babs> probably by attaching washers to the screws
[13:08] <eroomde> there's a very hobby-scale balancer you can make with one
[13:08] <Babs> oooo. interesting
[13:08] <eroomde> which was developped by the RC jet engine people
[13:08] <Babs> i feel we need a maker session at my house
[13:09] <eroomde> will build for pizza
[13:09] <Babs> i flew model planes with my dad when i was 8
[13:09] <Babs> there was a dude there who built a jet engine
[13:09] <Laurenceb_> piezo + a coil as different channels?
[13:09] <Babs> the cowel was a camping gaz shell
[13:09] <eroomde> Laurenceb_: sort of
[13:09] <Laurenceb_> s/coil/phase
[13:09] <eroomde> you can do it just with the spinny thing in a bearing housing that's loosely supported
[13:09] <eroomde> with flexible joints
[13:10] <eroomde> and on that bearing housing you put an accelerometer (eg piezo yep)
[13:10] <Babs> eroomde - we have pizza
[13:10] <eroomde> and then you can just put an LED and photodiode pointing at the thing you're trying to balance, and put a while line on it
[13:10] <Laurenceb_> ah
[13:10] <eroomde> and connect that to the scope aswell as the accelerometer
[13:11] <eroomde> so if it's unbalanced, when you spin it up, it'll wobble the accelerometer, and you'll see a sine wave on the scope
[13:11] <Laurenceb_> i can think of another project where this would be useful...
[13:11] <eroomde> if you also have the pulses from the reflectometer, you can figure out the phase difference between the sine wave and the reflection pulses
[13:11] <Babs> here you go https://www.flickr.com/photos/91049302@N00/13910869973/
[13:11] <eroomde> i.e., how many degrees round from the reflective bit is the heaviest part
[13:12] <eroomde> then you just grind a bit away
[13:12] <eroomde> and try again
[13:12] <Laurenceb_> yeah
[13:12] <Babs> i can strongly recommend a baby changing table to assemble stuff on
[13:12] <eroomde> eventually the amplitude of your sine wave should fall away
[13:12] <eroomde> as you iterate through this process
[13:12] <Babs> when you drop the ball bearings etc. it captures them perfectly
[13:12] <Reb-SM3ULC> Laurenceb_: did you get any nice results for a multi-fq antenna?
[13:12] <eroomde> it's very much like centering something in a 4-jaw chuck

[13:12] <Babs> i have 6 weeks before a baby arrives and destroys my chances of wheel balancing then by taking up the table i assembled for him/her

[14:03] <Willdude> Can't just scan this schematic into something that'd convert it can I?
[14:03] <Babs> (assuming wires don't melt) what is the effect of doubling the voltage going across a brushless motor?
[14:04] <Babs> on the one side, its a coil so should be twice as powerful
[14:04] <Babs> and motors are rated as to rpm per volt
[14:04] <Babs> BUT
[14:04] <Laurenceb_> they spin faster
[14:04] <Babs> surely the switching on and off of the magnets is not related to voltage?
[14:04] <Laurenceb_> before the back emc means you cant pass any current through
[14:04] <Laurenceb_> *emf
[14:05] <Laurenceb_> current -> torque, voltage -> max rpm
[14:05] <Babs> just have it going throuhg a standard speed controller

[14:07] DL7AD_mobile2 (~androirc@ip-109-45-2-83.web.vodafone.de) left irc: Read error: Connection reset by peer
[14:07] <mfa298> doubling the voltage probably also means the current will increase which is what would make the wires burn out.
[14:07] DL7AD_mobile2 (~androirc@ip-109-45-2-83.web.vodafone.de) joined #highaltitude.
[14:08] <cuddykid> just saw they did a launch but dont recall seeing it on the tracker. Guessing they dont know about the dist listener network
[14:08] <mfa298> the motor will be a fixed resistance (or reasonably fixed) so apply v=ir
[14:11] <Willdude> With fritzing how do I make a line - I can connect different bits directly but can't make lines for some reason
[14:11] <eroomde> power goes with the square of voltage to a first order for em things
[14:11] <eroomde> so doubling the voltage doubles the current
[14:11] <eroomde> P=IV
[14:12] <eroomde> P=2I * 2V
[14:12] <eroomde> so 4 times the power
[14:14] <g0pai_ian> Suggesting limited research. Almost any Google search for "high altitude", "altitude balloon" etc. will bring you rushing here. Must have had blindfolds on.or recent confidence injections :-)

[14:25] <Willdude> Nah, got an image though.
[14:25] <Willdude> g0pai_ian, just uploading it
[14:26] <g0pai_ian> Nasa regularly use amateurs. Remember a couple of years ago the docking problem with the ISS, they needed eyes in Australia then and provide software for amateurs to use and reap the observations to fill in where they don't have specialists on the ground.

[14:47] <Laurenceb_> they lost it while driving
[14:47] <cuddykid> amazed they didnt come across UKHAS whilst googling
[14:47] <mfa298> it sounds like they at least talked to the airport (no mention of whether they got a notam although you'de hope the airport would have pointted them towrads the caa)
[14:48] <mattbrejza> got to give them some credit for doing the whole thing themselves though, maybe a bit lacking in the radio department
[14:48] <mattbrejza> live and learn etc
[14:50] <mattbrejza> also yea i dont think there is any chance DM would have given them a notam, just checked the airspace kml

[14:56] <mfa298> Willdude: looking at that diagram it shouldn't be too hard to create a breadboard layout for it. Just start off with one or two components (probably the ZN414Z and/or BC548) and work from there. you might want to mark of the components / legs as you do them.

[16:30] <LeoBodnar> we sure do

[16:31] <Laurenceb_> no
[16:31] <LeoBodnar> no
[16:31] <Laurenceb_> B-11 was nearly 8 days

[16:32] <LeoBodnar> B-45 145h, B-12 164h, B-11 187h
[16:32] <Laurenceb_> this will be less than 7 when we lose aprs
[16:32] <arko> thats crazy
[16:33] <LeoBodnar> so according to ARHAB this is the 3rd longest
[16:33] <Laurenceb_> you have a load more around 80 to 100hours
[16:33] <Laurenceb_> you could fill the ARHAB top 10 i think
[16:34] <mfa298> how long until LeoBodnar can take over the whole duration records table - or do they just keep adding entries

[16:39] <LeoBodnar> no gore-y business
[16:39] <Laurenceb_> i guess my nutty option of silicone resin wouldnt be strong enough for single seam
[16:40] <LeoBodnar> if you make it into lap seam it might work

[19:12] <chrisstubbs> tested it with an old ntx2 (not b)
[19:12] <chrisstubbs> that was fine
[19:13] <craag> All the ground pins are internally connected.
[19:13] <chrisstubbs> I thought so too, just tried it anyway and its made no difference
[19:13] <craag> Strange
[19:14] <craag> These aren't ones that have been re-programmed to another freq?
[19:14] <chrisstubbs> bricked FW?
[19:14] <chrisstubbs> no these are the stock ones before upu started mdding them
[19:14] <chrisstubbs> *modding
[19:15] <craag> He does check them all before he ships them I believe
[19:15] <craag> But you've tested quite thoroughly - I can't think what else it might be
[19:15] <chrisstubbs> I think ive played with them before and got them working (at least one). They have just been sitting in their ESD box on my desk for a few months
[19:17] <chrisstubbs> tried it from a battery too so its not PSU noise or anything

[19:28] <chrisstubbs> a pair of them

[19:28] <Upu> 2 faulty ?
[19:28] <chrisstubbs> It would seem so
[19:29] <chrisstubbs> no carrier when I power them up
[19:29] <Upu> oh
[19:29] <Upu> hang on
[19:29] <Upu> toggle EN
[19:29] <Upu> off and back on again
[19:29] <Upu> have you soldered them in ?
[19:30] <chrisstubbs> oh
[19:30] <chrisstubbs> that was easy ;)
[19:30] <chrisstubbs> nope just on breadboard
[19:30] <Upu> ok that is actually a fault

[19:30] <chrisstubbs> sweet :)
[19:30] <Upu> post them back to me and I'll refund your postage
[19:30] <chrisstubbs> will just test if the other ones do the same
[19:31] <chrisstubbs> *one

[19:31] <chrisstubbs> lol
[19:31] <chrisstubbs> the other one just seems totally dead
[19:31] <chrisstubbs> oh different frequency ;)
[19:31] <Upu> haha
[19:32] <Upu> never had a faulty one tbh
[19:32] <chrisstubbs> hmm this one seems to be okay now ive toggle it, fine after power cycles
[19:32] <chrisstubbs> but its from the same batch, so shall i send them both?

[19:32] <Upu> yes send both
[19:33] <Upu> I'll put the new firmware on that makes it frequency agile and fixes that bug
[19:34] <Upu> anyway sorry about that RMX send me about 40 with the fault, I thought I'd only shipped a few
[19:34] <chrisstubbs> cheers, will get them in the post to you
[19:34] <Upu> address PM'd
[19:35] <Upu> however if you want to play with them tonight just toggle EN and it switches it on
[19:37] <Willdude> Decided in the end to just make the breadboard up as I go along
[19:37] Action: Willdude just had the urge to design a PCB
[19:37] <Willdude> Could make a PCB version
[19:39] <nats`> Willdude is it a RF circuit ?
[19:39] <Willdude> Yeah
[19:40] <nats`> so breadboard is usually bad
[19:40] <nats`> I would advice to make a flying wire circuit :)

[20:06] <Lunar_Lander> instead of going east, the meteorologists opted for going south west to Morocco and then into the eastward route around the world
[20:07] <Lunar_Lander> which also shifted the finish line west to Mauretania

[21:06] <Willdude123> the main problem is it looks like a transistor

[21:08] <Willdude123> it is

[21:20] <Willdude123> My problem is I need a TO-92 part
[21:20] <Willdude123> For eagle
[21:21] <Lunar_Lander> OK
[21:21] <Lunar_Lander> is that a generic thing?
[21:21] <Lunar_Lander> or do you have some part that is not just like a transistor with base, emitter and collector?
[21:21] <Willdude123> And I need to edit it so the names are right
[21:21] <Lunar_Lander> yes
[21:21] <Lunar_Lander> do you know how to work with the editor?
[21:22] <Willdude123> It's not, it's a non-transistor in a TO-92 case
[21:22] <Lunar_Lander> you can make your own library but you don't have to make the footprint yourself
[21:22] <adamgreig> eagle comes with a library of footprints that contains a to92
[21:22] <adamgreig> just use that
[21:22] <Lunar_Lander> you make your library with your own symbol for the schematic and then you can copy any TO-92 footprint
[21:22] <Willdude123> The part editor? No, but I know the rest of eagleOK
[21:22] <Lunar_Lander> or what adamgreig said
[21:22] <Lunar_Lander> https://www.sparkfun.com/tutorials/110 about the editor
[21:22] <Lunar_Lander> as I said you can draw your own symbol
[21:23] <Lunar_Lander> and then copy any other TO-92 footprint

[21:29] <mikestir> Willdude123: Start by creating your own library (File->New->Library). Then draw the symbol, place pins, name as required. Draw a box in the "Symbols" layer and add text ">NAME" in the Names layer, and ">VALUE" in the Values layer. Now go back to the control panel and find the standard library "ref packages". Look for TO92 footprint and right click, "Copy to Library". Then go back to your new library and create a part.
[21:29] <mikestir> Add your symbol to the part (press A). Set the ref des prefix, e.g. IC or U. Press "New" to add a footprint and pick the TO92 one you copied, then "Connect" to map your pins. You're probably going to need a you tube video, but that's the gist of it.

[21:37] <Willdude123> Argh
[21:39] <mikestir> it won't show in add - it doesn't have any parts in it, only footprints. You need to view it in control panel and use the "copy to library" function to put it in your own library
