[09:54] <manu2424> Hi, i'm Emanuele
[09:54] <amell> it is just down the road, but no point in me taking a look for it if Leo already has it
[09:54] <manu2424> Could you help me?
[09:58] <fsphil> depends on what you want help with I guess :)
[09:59] <Geoff-G8DHE> Just ask away manu2424
[09:59] <manu2424> If i have a payload of 800g-900g which balloons i can buy? and how much helium i must have?
[10:00] <fsphil> it depends on how high you want it to go, and how quickly
[10:00] <manu2424> 30-35km
[10:00] <fsphil> http://habhub.org/calc/
[10:00] <fsphil> this calculator will help
[10:00] <fsphil> you can put in your payload weight, and target altitude
[10:00] <fsphil> or target ascent rate
[10:00] <manu2424> I do not know to use it well, so I asked you
[10:00] <fsphil> and see what effect different balloons have
[10:00] <manu2424> I do not know which ballons would be fine
[10:02] <manu2424> i have a payload (no parachaute and line) about 800-900gr (i think... now i don't know ) , which balloons i must buy ?
[10:02] <manu2424> in payload i must put Arduino,HERO GO3+ , gsm tracker, GPS SPot
[10:03] <fsphil> well for example, if you put into that calculator
[10:03] <fsphil> a 900g payload, target ascent rate of 5m/s
[10:04] <fsphil> you can change the balloon size and see what effect it has on the burst altitude
[10:04] <fsphil> on the right hand side it will also tell you how much helium this will need
[10:05] <fsphil> if you select a 1200g balloon for example, it predicts it will burst at about 33.3km
[10:05] <fsphil> and need 3.21 m3 of helium
[10:05] <daveake> Helium is expensive so less is better. In the UK a "medium" cylinder is 3.6 m^3, and if you need more the price goes up by 50%. So it's good to choose a balloon that needs less than 3.6
[10:06] <fsphil> it's ever so slow filling it when it's nearly empty too
[10:06] <manu2424> but i'm italian... if i buy in Uk
[10:06] <manu2424> i musy buy a medium cylinder?
[10:06] <fsphil> that's just an example
[10:06] <manu2424> must*
[10:07] <daveake> You need to find out how much gas you get inb a cylinder locally
[10:07] <daveake> Try suppliers of party balloons
[10:07] <daveake> They will ask you how many balloons you want to fill
[10:07] <MightyMik> welding supply maybe?
[10:07] <daveake> After you tell them "1", you need to ask how much volume of gas you get
[10:07] <fsphil> I still love the look I get after saying "1"

[10:08] <daveake> MightyMil It depends. Helium is in short supply and BOC in the UK only supply to their larger customers
[10:09] <MightyMik> k
[10:09] <daveake> Also it's cheaper that way
[10:09] <manu2424> then... as might weigh myself in the payload Comprising: Arduino,HERO GO3+ , gsm tracker, GPS SPot?
[10:09] <daveake> Yes k no l sorry :)
[10:10] <daveake> If the Arduino is doing radio, and you have a GSM backup, don't bother with the Spot
[10:10] <manu2424> Arduino save pressure,temperature,humidty in a SD ..
[10:10] <daveake> ok .....
[10:10] <daveake> .... in that case use GSM and Spot
[10:10] <daveake> and good luck
[10:11] <manu2424> yes, but i want use also arduino for measure data such as pressure, temperature and humidity
[10:11] <manu2424> i think that will be a 500-600gr.. or no?

[10:17] <manu2424> ok whit a ballons of 1200g and a 700gr of payload i must have about 3m^3 helium
[10:17] <manu2424> Now ... which parachute i must buy for this balloons and this payload?
[10:18] <daveake> There's a calculator at http://www.randomengineering.co.uk/Random_Aerospace/Parachutes.html
[10:18] <daveake> and you can buy the balloon and chute from there (recommended)
[10:18] <daveake> With the calculator, aim for 5m/s landing speed
[10:19] <daveake> So for 700g a 30" spherachute is perfect

[12:38] <mfa298> mattbrejza: ubuntu 14.04 at this time
[12:38] <MightyMik> 57 transmitting while 56 beeping
[12:38] <mfa298> java version "1.7.0_55"
[12:38] <mfa298> (openjdk)
[12:39] <mattbrejza> ah right
[12:39] <amell> uh oh, is BSIS floating?
[12:39] <mattbrejza> nice to see it working on linux
[12:39] <mattbrejza> do you have an audio input? is the waterfall doing something?
[12:39] <mfa298> I can probably try windows xp/7/8 this evening (some are virtualised)
[12:39] <mattbrejza> dont worry too much, it works on my various win7/8 pcs
[12:39] <mfa298> currently no audio input but it listed various audio devices
[12:40] <mattbrejza> was the waterfall displaying noise?
[12:40] <amell> oh i see. no gps, so it looks like its floating.
[12:40] <mfa298> might be able to manage a stereo mix style thing (/me fires up spotify)
[12:40] <mattbrejza> rather than being a grey space
[12:40] <bsis_james> amell: No, we've just lost GPS and dead reckoning has stopped.
[12:40] <amell> bsis_james: is GPS in flight mode?
[12:41] <mattbrejza> if it cant open an audio device it just says 'new label' at the bottom (helpfully oc)
[12:41] <bsis_james> amell: Yes, it went above the standard mode altitude and it was still working we're presuming that it's just lost signal.
[12:42] <fsphil> right bunch of weird flights today
[12:42] <fsphil> 56 going up, 57 coming down, BSIS having gps trouble?
[12:42] <amell> fsphil: thats about the gist of it.
[12:43] <amell> fsphil: and its all happening in my backyard lol
[12:43] <G8APZ> B-57 only 0.2 elev here but B-56 now very loud!!
[12:43] <mfa298> mattbrejza: hmmm, well cant get a stereo mix type thing but it is showing some stuff on the waterfall :)
[12:43] <mattbrejza> cool thats all i wanted :)
[12:43] <jededu> Is b56 contestia
[12:43] <bsis_james> fsphil: GPS trouble, is it possible that the reciever is too cold, considering the fact that the antenna's externally mounted.
[12:43] <amell> y 8/250
[12:43] <mattbrejza> its displaying a whole load of zero input but thats still somethung

[12:50] <db_g6gzh> OK 8-)
[12:50] <mattbrejza> db_g6gzh: what callsign were you using?
[12:50] <db_g6gzh> G6GZH-J
[12:50] <G8APZ> managing to decode bothe 56 and 57 without tuning
[12:50] <mattbrejza> it sometimes has to try multiple times to upload
[12:51] <amell> G8APZ: how?
[12:51] <mattbrejza> although actually it didnt add you to the recievers list http://habitat.habhub.org/habitat/551da0bdba16215cd7fc150db751cd6b7f6f3001fb6d830e03d85d7b4533ee7b
[12:51] <amell> strangely B56 is only sending one sentence each time for me. is it supposed to be two?
[12:52] <db_g6gzh> amell: just one
[12:52] <G8APZ> amell the contestia starts at different times so it gets B57 sometimes and B-56 others... but now 57 is over the horizon I think it will be only 56 from now
[12:52] <mattbrejza> i probably need to update the way it talks to habitat, i think thts been changed since i wrote that
[12:52] <db_g6gzh> not sure why it's different, maybe low battery?
[12:52] <amell> the other Bs sent two, didnt they?
[12:53] <db_g6gzh> mattbrejza: OK, I've not filled in lat/lon etc.
[12:53] <G8APZ> still decoding partials from 57 in the noise!
[12:53] <mattbrejza> it should still show you as a listener in the list
[12:54] <mattbrejza> did you press 'update' after filling in your callsign?
[12:54] <mattbrejza> someone hasnt :P
[12:54] <db_g6gzh> ah
[12:54] <mattbrejza> its probably because two people are trying to upload with the same callsign

[14:02] <aadamson> JWP, if you dongle supports it, click the correct IQ or move the red line off the center point and adjust the frequency
[14:02] <aadamson> that center point on the RTL dongles is from the dongle and you won't be able to RX directly on it. The funcube can correct for that if that is what you are using
[14:02] <db_g6gzh> I'm not familiar with SDR# so can't comment so much on that part
[14:03] <aadamson> I'm not sure if that is the LO on the RX or what it is, but I know on RTL dongles that you can't RX on that point, you need to move off it and adjust the frequency

[15:15] <amell> ah found you
[15:15] <amell> thats a lot further than 1km

[15:16] <amell> you lost at sentence 703, and i lost it at sentence 700, with my crappy antenna. i guess we cant infer anything from that
[15:16] <db_g6gzh> as I can usually decode down to that across the fens
[15:17] <amell> i am wondering if they can actually hear it with the yagi

[15:22] <amell> receiving loud and clear at 257km with 1.2 ele (and no habamp!)
[15:23] <aadamson> amell, I believe it uses some logic based upon solar voltage and perhaps battery voltage to determine frequency and interval of packets. Part of it's logic to maximize it's energy usage
[15:24] <amell> yeah, didnt it have some concept of night and day too.
[15:25] <aadamson> night = no solar volts, day = voltage so yes I'm sure it has logic to determine night and day energy profiles
[15:25] <aadamson> will be interesting to watch the battery voltage, the solar is reading an appropritate value, but the battery doesn't see to be gaining volts so maybe some damage to the solar array on the landing/takeoff
[15:26] <amell> fsphil: how about a modified habrotate to point a telescope? :)
[15:26] <DL7AD> ah B-56 took a dip too
[15:27] <amell> or a float?
[15:27] <DL7AD> i think it floats
[15:28] <db_g6gzh> on B-57 the solar was above 0.6V when it was charging and B-56 is only just getting up to that

[15:28] <DL7AD> B-56 is mightly damaged
[15:30] <db_g6gzh> I think the panels are quite fragile and have likely been dragged along the ground or a tree overnight

[16:15] <Upu> hi jededu
[16:15] <jededu> upu pm
[16:15] <G8APZ> if BSIS is audible to chase team, three triangulation points a mile or so apart should be enough to home in, providing the map is good detail and sight lines can be drawn on a map
[16:16] <amell> yeah. i hope they havnt given up.
[16:16] <amell> i could hear it on the ground at elsworth before it took off and i am 2 miles from the launch site.
[16:17] <amell> so they should be able to hear it in a radius of 6 miles or so.
[16:17] <G8APZ> a compass is handy too to orientate the map, or else use known points like churches to orientate the map
[16:18] <PE2G> DJ3AK: I didn't monitor B-55, alas.
[16:19] <amell> damn, still decoding b-56 crossing into holland at 326km

[16:20] <G8APZ> that's good going amell! Have you got the antenna outside now?
[16:22] <DJ3AK> PE2G ah, yes, it was last evening, when I received this for hours. Direction was towards Frankfurt and weak, No decode. Just running through resetting or so and giving 3 or 4 chirps, then silence for a while and repeating.

[16:26] <G8APZ> DJ3AK I think B-56 launched late evening, and then went to ground for the night... woke up and took off again after a sleep!
[16:26] <G8APZ> It must therefore have been B-55

[20:46] <PaulCDR> good evening folks, i was here at the tail end of last year and got some great advice on building a tracker but the weather beat us and didnt launch. we are organised again and hoping to launch this weekend. i was hoping someone could send me the link to apply for getting the launch details uploaded for the live tracker

[20:47] <PaulCDR> thats the one, cheers
[20:47] <Lunar_Lander> ah
[20:48] <Lunar_Lander> saw a lightning storm warner that picked up 500 kHz and then turned on green, yellow, red LEDs on some threshold
[20:48] <fsphil> yea a lightning strike puts out energy on many frequencies

[21:12] <ak4rp> flight is named MRC launch 1 (hash f9bdb1&)
[21:12] <Upu> can I see it on Spacenear.us ?
[21:13] <Upu> not being awkward its much easier to fix issues at this point
[21:13] <ak4rp> it has appeared there already
[21:13] <Upu> oh yes I think I saw it
[21:13] <Upu> when is the launch ?
[21:13] <ak4rp> Friday AM
[21:14] <Upu> approved have a good launch and remember to mail the UKHAS mailing list with details
[21:14] <ak4rp> thank you!
[21:14] <Upu> The Slovaks will be able to recieve that I suspect
[21:15] <ak4rp> I hope so, its going to go up to 35k
[21:17] <ak4rp> but well try to get some Hungarians to listen to it, too. Hopefully we can get people familiarize themselves with the nice trcking infrastructure.
[21:17] <PaulCDR> sorry for the stupid question at this point in the game but how do i send the data to the maps?
[21:18] <Upu> recieve it in dl-fldigi

[22:14] <arko> how is it possible for you to detect strikes in Georgia?
[22:14] <fsphil> the VLF signal travels a very long distance

[22:15] <fsphil> I only know where it is because it's triangulated with other detectors
[22:15] <arko> woah!
[22:15] <arko> cool

[22:15] SA6BSS (~kvirc@81-236-232-232-no30.tbcn.telia.com) joined #highaltitude.
[22:16] <fsphil> the sensor just listens for a pulse, and uploads the time it detected it to the server
[22:16] <fsphil> LazyLeopard: blitzortung.org detector
[22:16] <arko> super cool
[22:17] <nats`> fsphil there was a huge amateur project with homemade receiver
[22:17] <nats`> 2 op amp an antenna
[22:17] <nats`> and soundcard
[22:17] <nats`> is it what you use ?
[22:17] <LazyLeopard> fsphil: Right. Been thinking about getting one of those for a while, but this part of the country seems adequately covered at present...
[22:18] <fsphil> nats`: nah it's an atmega644p

[22:20] <Laurenceb_> ah yes
[22:20] <fsphil> I don't seem to appear on the live map very often
[22:20] <fsphil> I guess it just isn't uploading it quickly enough
[22:21] <fsphil> the baud rate is 4800, I can't seem to get it working faster
[22:21] <Laurenceb_> omg
[22:22] <Laurenceb_> pico positioning heaven
[22:22] <Laurenceb_> stick one on a picoballoon
[22:22] <nats`> fsphil I'm surprised they didn't used the technic of the previous amateur network

[22:34] <Laurenceb_> see our problem is that gps is too good
[22:35] <Laurenceb_> otherwise we would have to use groovy methods like vlf triangulation
[22:37] <Laurenceb_> fsphil: is there a description of the hardware?
[22:38] <Laurenceb_> http://www.blitzortung.org/Webpages/index.php?lang=pl&page=2

[22:39] <Laurenceb_> lolz
[22:40] <fsphil> yea it's not pretty
[22:40] <fsphil> I've a much older version
[22:41] <Laurenceb_> discovery is the new arduino
[22:41] <fsphil> you'd think if they're making hardware, just stick the micro on there
[22:41] <Laurenceb_> how big is your antenni?
[22:42] <Darkside> fsphil: probably works out cheaper to use the discovry boards
[22:43] <fsphil> mmm maybe, they are very cheap
[22:43] <bertrik> nats`: that's like an adcock antenna, right?

[23:21] <Laurenceb_> B-56 might just wake up around midday tomorrow
[23:21] <Laurenceb_> depends on panel temperature and how the battery behaves
[23:21] Action: Laurenceb_ zzz
[23:22] <DL7AD> isnt b56 alive anymore?
[23:22] <Laurenceb_> battery is rapidly dying
[23:22] <Laurenceb_> the panels got damaged when it crashed
[23:22] <DL7AD> i cant receive it from my location
[23:22] Action: Laurenceb_ zz 4 real
[23:22] <DL7AD> yes sure
[23:22] <SpeedEvil> It bounced?
[23:22] <DL7AD> yes
[23:22] <SpeedEvil> Or launch damage
[23:22] <DL7AD> it did
[23:22] <DL7AD> bounces
[23:23] <DL7AD> *d
[23:23] <amell> what was the max output from the panels today?
[23:23] <amell> yeah, first inkling we had that B-56 was still alive was when the local guys like me started hearing two pips
[23:23] <SpeedEvil> Well - the battery voltage going consistently down over the day is not a good thing

[23:59] <aadamson> will be interesting to see if once the sun comes out if whats left of the panels can put anything back in the battery.
