[11:16] <LeoBodnar> does mosh have a server side?

[11:16] <LeoBodnar> k
[11:16] <fsphil> and two udp ports opened up on the server side
[11:16] <fsphil> very strong signal now
[11:16] <cm13g09> depending on how your firewall is done, yes fsphil
[11:16] <fsphil> this is going to be a long flight...
[11:17] <cm13g09> fsphil: I see why I didn't have to do anything server side... my firewall appears to be TCP-lopsided.....

[11:58] <LeoBodnar> given it is mid-day
[11:59] <PaulCDR> Hey fsphil
[11:59] <mikestir_M0MKS> Martin_G4FUI: at what alt would you normally be able to hear flights in NI?
[11:59] <Martin_G4FUI> I'll skwawk as soon as I see it in the w/f
[11:59] <PaulCDR> We managed to get our launch off today
[12:00] <PaulCDR> from west of NI
[12:00] <PaulCDR> not a phone signal down that part of the world at all
[12:00] <mikestir_M0MKS> PaulCDR: what's the possibility that the reported altitude is out by a factor of 10?
[12:00] <LeoBodnar> lucky
[12:00] <Maxell> M0MKS
[12:00] <Maxell> M0MKS tropo?
[12:00] <Martin_G4FUI> Difficult to answer that mikestir_M0MKS as I don't have a lot of experience of flights from that direction, though I do have some fairly big lumps of granite in the way!
[12:01] <PaulCDR> it is very likely Mikestir
[12:01] <mikestir_M0MKS> Maxell: or the altitude is being reported incorrectly, which would also explain the very low rate of ascent
[12:01] <PaulCDR> noticed that after it launched
[12:01] <PaulCDR> yeah, i think a factor of ten
[12:01] <Maxell> mikestir_M0MKS: ok we'll see
[12:01] <Martin_G4FUI> That gets my vote - still nothing here ...
[12:01] <Maxell> good luck PaulCDR
[12:02] <mikestir_M0MKS> if that's the case then it should be peeking over Upu's hill around now

[12:16] <G8KNN_> yes :-)
[12:16] <PaulCDR> No way, thats class
[12:17] <PaulCDR> didnt think it would reach that far
[12:17] <G8KNN_> not strong enough to decode yet though
[12:17] <PaulCDR> still quite chuffed it can reach that far
[12:18] <fsphil> well that confirms the bug

[12:18] <Martin_G4FUI> Think so ...
[12:18] <fsphil> I know!
[12:19] <mikestir_M0MKS> no awesome propagation after all though :(
[12:19] <Martin_G4FUI> I was up for a chase :)
[12:19] <fsphil> getting a lot of red lines

[12:24] <mfa298> mosh is very useful for machines that are on the move and definetly the way to do irc when chasing
[12:24] <Rob_m0dts> mosh?
[12:25] <fsphil> it's ssh, but for crappy connections
[12:25] <bertrik> mosh is like SSH, but using UDP packets
[12:25] <mfa298> it's a replacement for ssh (although I think uses ssh to setup the session)
[12:25] <fsphil> it does
[12:26] <mfa298> but works well over flaky internet connections (like 3G)
[12:26] <Rob_m0dts> ah, probably good for hill tops then with intermittent gprs/3g, shall have to look into it!
[12:27] <mfa298> balloon is now going the other way so looks like it's up to the higher winds so more proof of an altitude bug
[12:27] <fsphil> yea
[12:27] <fsphil> skipping the last nmea altitude character likely

[12:31] <fsphil> must be windy up there
[12:31] <PaulCDR> yeah, it must be dropping the last digit

[12:34] <fsphil> nice!
[12:36] <Upu> I can see it
[12:37] <Upu> altitude reporting HAS to be wrong
[12:37] <Martin_G4FUI> I think there's a "decimal point" error
[12:38] <mfa298> Upu: I think it's been pretty much confirmed as doing a /10 plenty of evidence for it being wrong
[12:38] <Upu> well I can't see stuff from that direction unless its > 15km
[12:39] <fsphil> it's further south than most launches here
[12:40] <fsphil> could be a larger hill
[12:41] <fsphil> 29km does seem rather good for such a small balloon
[12:42] <fsphil> burst
[12:42] <Rob_m0dts> pop

[13:01] <mikestir_M0MKS> it won't be waterproof around the threads

[13:39] <Maxell> mikestir_M0MKS: would the clamp-waterproof version also also have less annutation then the good 'ol solder one?
[13:40] <Maxell> self-amalgamating tape will take care of the waterproof part, and I have done the solder one before
[13:40] <mikestir_M0MKS> I don't think the clamp ones are intended to be waterproof are they? they just have the advantage of being mechanically attached to the cable
[13:40] <mikestir_M0MKS> they are undoubtedly better than the solder ones
[13:41] <Maxell> http://www.hamshop.nl/product_info.php/cPath/89_94/products_id/407 sells them as "special waterproof"
[13:41] <Maxell> http://www.hamshop.nl/images/Hamshop-PL-7-Clamp.jpg
[13:41] <mikestir_M0MKS> not convinced. water will eventually seep into the thread by capillary action
[13:41] <mikestir_M0MKS> the O-ring at the cable end will be a good seal, but not the other end

[18:25] <PaulCDR> real lucky

[19:06] <fsphil> yea I did a quick database fix
[19:06] <fsphil> just * 10
[19:06] <fsphil> interestingly below 1000m the altitude was reported correct
[19:06] <SV1NJX> hello
[19:06] <fsphil> hiya SV1NJX
[19:07] <SV1NJX> Just a remark
[19:07] <PaulCDR> yeah, must have a look at what i have done, im sure its someting stupid
[19:07] <SV1NJX> today i used DL_FLDIGI for B-60 reception
[19:08] <SV1NJX> Bodnar's pico's transmitting in ISM band 434.500
[19:08] <PaulCDR> im sure this hasnt helped gps.alt = atoi(alt)/10;
[19:09] <SV1NJX> So the most of the time i have QRM from a local home TV extender
[19:09] <fsphil> whyyyyy
[19:09] <PaulCDR> god knows
[19:09] <fsphil> or why did it work below 1000m
[19:09] <PaulCDR> but that dosnt explain why it works under 1k
[19:10] <fsphil> I bet the bug is the nmea parser is returning an altitude * 10 when below 1000m
[19:10] <SV1NJX> that's a note for Bodnar...
[19:10] <fsphil> and since it was only ever tested below 1000m, the quick fix was to / 10
[19:11] <PaulCDR> sounds familiar, it was early last year when i done 95% of the code
[19:13] <Maxell> SV1NJX: contestia deals with qrm quite nicely iirc
[19:13] <Maxell> SV1NJX: must be some load qrm
[19:13] <Trieste> Oh, that reminds me - what options are there for telemetry, really? Is RTTY pretty much the best option?
[19:14] <fsphil> it is often the simplest
[19:14] <Maxell> Trieste: there are a lot of code examples or even complete code snippits for RTTY.
[19:14] <fsphil> aprs is another option if you have an amateur radio license, and your country allows it to be used in the air (not all do)
[19:14] <SV1NJX> I have a local station (a neighbor) that uses some TV extender at 434.500 FM
[19:15] <Trieste> fsphil: you don't need a license for rtty?
[19:15] <SV1NJX> So when it turn it on , anything else vanish
[19:15] <SV1NJX> I captured a lot of B-60 packets anyway
[19:15] <Trieste> Maxell: yeah, I was thinking more bandwith/range/price-wise, though
[19:15] <Trieste> *width

[19:19] <fsphil> you wouldn't have to do anything special unless it was built from scratch
[19:20] <Maxell> RTTY can be done on all fsk radios modules... the other modes require smaller frequency steps
[19:21] <Maxell> Trieste: yep you buy the 10 mW version.
[19:21] <Maxell> Or they have some software setting for 10 mW
[19:22] <PaulCDR> im off here folks, thank for all your help today everyone
[19:23] <Trieste> is there a list somewhere of suitable modules? the ones I found were either really low range, or too capable and hence expensive

[19:52] <DL7AD> snelly: these transmitters are pretty small and easy to handle. and they dont need that much power.
[19:53] <mfa298> for the UK the extra output power from any HT is wasted as we have to use the ISM band so max 10mW (which is what the NTX2B is)

[19:57] <Turan> Hello, I need some advise for my HAB project. I am a beginner and I tried the receiving of a NTX2B with two different receivers (Yupiteru and Kenwood both with SSB) and it didnt work. What could be wrong?
[19:58] <mfa298> Turan: can you recieve a carrier from the ntx2 using those radios ?
[19:58] <mfa298> also how is the ntx2 connected up and what's driving it ?
[19:58] <Turan> no, there is just noise no data or 'beeps'
[19:59] <chrisstubbs> There was a bug in the fw of the *very* early NTX2B's
[19:59] S_Mark (~S_Mark@host86-164-133-67.range86-164.btcentralplus.com) left irc: Remote host closed the connection
[19:59] <chrisstubbs> you had to toggle the enable pin after powering it up to get it to kick in
[19:59] <Turan> I use an arduino with just this sketch: const int radiopin = 9; void setup() { pinMode(radiopin,OUTPUT); } void loop() { digitalWrite(radiopin, HIGH); delay(100); digitalWrite(radiopin, LOW); delay(100); }
[19:59] S_Mark (~S_Mark@host86-164-133-67.range86-164.btcentralplus.com) joined #highaltitude.
[20:00] <mfa298> you may also need to tune around a bit, the carrier may not be exactly on the advertised frequency.
[20:00] <chrisstubbs> Scan up and down a bit and you should hear a tone alternating in frequency
[20:00] <mfa298> how is the ntx2b connected to the arduino ?
[20:00] <Turan> I did, but what is toggling?
[20:01] <Turan> NTX2B Pin 4,5 to 5V. Pin 6 to Ground and Pin 7 to Pin 9 of Arduino
[20:02] <mfa298> any resistors in that setup or just a direct connection ?
[20:02] <Turan> direct connection
[20:03] <mfa298> in that case the two tones are going to be ~6KHz apart if you're just toggling the pin on and off.
[20:03] <chrisstubbs> mfa298, upu's latest tutorial seems to use PWM
[20:03] <chrisstubbs> http://ukhas.org.uk/guides:linkingarduinotontx2
[20:03] <chrisstubbs> ah and your code was just driving it high and low, sorry on the ball now :P
[20:03] <Turan> yes
[20:04] <mfa298> chrisstubbs: that's why I was asking, the lines of code above looks like it's just toggling on and off, no pwm

[20:04] <Turan> I did it also with the code on http://ukhas.org.uk/guides:linkingarduinotontx2 but it did not work
[20:05] <mfa298> the NTX2b is also only rated to 3v on the data pin although I think that's only because thats the point it stops affecting the frequency.
[20:07] <mfa298> the first thing to do is find the carrier frequency coming from the ntx2b. For that you only need to have VCC, EN and GND connected. Then tune around with a radio to find the carrier - test by turning the nrx2 on and off and see if the carrier disappears when the ntx2b is off.
[20:07] <chrisstubbs> And if you see no carrier at all, try disconnecting and reconnecting the EN pin, while the others are still connected
[20:09] <Turan> ok
[20:09] <mfa298> also note that there are two versions of that article. The code you pasted above is from an older version with adds resistors (http://ukhas.org.uk/guides:linkingarduinotontx2?rev=1381045698) but the wiring sounds like it's from a newer version (http://ukhas.org.uk/guides:linkingarduinotontx2)

[20:14] <mfa298> myself: there are some boards available for close to ready built trackers (see habduino) but the general consensus here is that (at least for UK flights) it's prefered that people have to do a bit of work as it means there's more chance of anyone launching finding out the legal and safety aspects as well.
[20:15] <mfa298> there have been some really stupid flights where people have done things which could be potentially dangerous.
[20:15] <Turan> no carrier

[20:16] <chrisstubbs> Ah
[20:16] <myself> change state
[20:17] <mfa298> doing some of the code yourself also means when you come to launch you'll understand how the system works so you've got some chance of fixing it at the launch site when something doesn't work properly rather than just launching something that isn't working and praying it might start working when it's flying (presumably through some sort of divine intervention) which generally leads to it being lost (which has also happened a few times)

[20:17] <chrisstubbs> Yes, disconnect that pin for VCC and connect it to GND for a second, then back to VCC
[20:17] <craag> myself: Often the thinking associated with the programming (what will happen if altitude goes above 32768km?) will transfer into thinking about the flight (what will happen if my 5kg payload lands in central london?)

[20:20] <kc2pit> Using a signed int for altitude would indicate a certain pessimism.
[20:21] <mfa298> myself: the act of having to do some of the programming yourself also tends to lead people to seeking help here or on the mailing list and looking at the wiki at which point there's a good chance of legal / safety things being spotted by someone else (often a few people here would check that notams are in place - or point out that needs to be done, and point out things like Ed's stairs test)
[20:21] <fsphil> some day soon uint16_t will not be enough
[20:21] <kc2pit> Or an ambitious multi-role payload concept.
[20:21] <myself> Or launching from Death Valley
[20:22] <myself> but I think I smell a Kerbal Submarine Program mod pack..
[20:23] <craag> some flights have landed at negative altitude

[20:28] <myself> get one flaky altitude packet and your cutdown device arms itself before launch...
[20:28] <craag> an altitude trigger should always need a few packets in a row to trigger
[20:29] <craag> that lesson has been learnt several times I believe
[20:29] <mfa298> and hopefully if you've got a cutdown there's some sort of safety arming mechanism so it's safe on the ground (expecially if it's a pyro rather than just nicrome)

[21:29] <LeoBodnar> yep
[21:29] <Maxell> LeoBodnar: I also have not figured out how my WIDE1-1,WIDE2-1 path gets digipeated three times... PI1DFT --> ON0ANT-1 --> ON0DAS-4 --> ON0LN-10 igate when the pi1dft internet igate is down
[21:29] <LeoBodnar> some gates don't decrement the path counter
[21:29] <Maxell> Or ON0ANT-1 is messing up the WIDE2-1 or ON0DAS-4 just ignores it.
[21:31] <Maxell> ANT itself sends his packet like ON0DAS-4,ON0LN-10. However if you get digipeated by ANT it looks like ON0ANT-1,PI1APV-2,PI1DFT
[21:31] <Maxell> something is messed up
[21:32] <Maxell> And I might be better off only using WIDE1-1 in The Hague area. I havnt figured out the aloha cicle yet but I suspect PI1DFT is all I need :P

[21:36] <PaulCDR> there are some damm handy features on the habhub site, who designs them and looks after them?
[21:37] <Lunar_Lander> not me
[21:37] <Lunar_Lander> xD
[21:38] <craag> the worshipped 'habhub team'
[21:39] <craag> they'll be at the UKHAS conference this summer
[21:39] <craag> Giving a talk on improvements to the predictor and stuff
[21:40] <PaulCDR> i was looking at it, was thinking about taking a trip over. looks like it could be really interesting
[21:41] <PaulCDR> is there any kind of donation page, there is clearly a load of work and effort involved in that site. bound to worth throwing them a few quid
[21:43] <craag> There isn't
[21:43] <craag> Although buying a conf ticket is the next best thing
[21:44] <LeoBodnar> you can set up a challenge with a prize
[21:44] <amell> The DSN status page is really interesting - saw them using madrid dish to communicate 2 way with voyager 1.
[21:44] <craag> (the guy organising the conf also pays for the habhub/spacenear servers)
[21:44] <amell> 15kW at 8Ghz
[21:45] <PaulCDR> cool, cheers craag.
[21:45] <LeoBodnar> the next best thing you can do PaulCDR is buying the HAB stuff from Upu shop i guess
[21:46] <LeoBodnar> as it is getting reinvested into this community/hobby
[21:46] <amell> 19.05 billion km - round trip time 1.47 days. wow.
[21:47] <PaulCDR> Yeah Leo, thats where i bought all my stuff this time. plan to make another one, so ill defo buy from him again.
[21:48] <amell> received power from voyager 1 =8.5 x 10e-23 kW
[21:49] <chrisstubbs> Yo amell
[21:49] <fsphil> worth being on the ukhas mailing list if you're not already
[21:49] <amell> yo chrisstubbs!
[21:49] <amell> chrisstubbs: just need to get gas now, and we are good.
[21:49] <mikestir_M0MKS> amell: received power from voyager 1 =8.5 x 10e-23 k <--- this is why we have decibels :)
[21:49] <craag> Yeah also joining in with the community, helping newbies, etc. All gives good karma :)
[21:50] <chrisstubbs> Ah I was just going to ask if you had plans or were using it as a paperweight/trophy :P
[21:50] <amell> it works. got balloons off steve a week ago. been busy sailing. gas next, any thoughts on where from?
[21:51] <chrisstubbs> I get my "disposable 50" canisters off amazon.ebay
[21:51] <chrisstubbs> amazon/ebay
[21:51] <amell> how many fills did you get off a d50?
[21:52] <chrisstubbs> For that payload you will probably want an entire canister in a 100g balloon (I guess thats what you have?)
[21:53] <amell> yup 100g pawan lovingly made in kasarwadi, pune, india.
[21:54] <PaulCDR> we had some panic today, we had the balloon laid out ready to fill and a dog runs over and jumps right into the middle of it. A big lab into the bargain. we thought for certain it had ripped it
[21:54] <amell> why was a dog loose in the vincinity of a balloon?
[21:54] <amell> dog + fully inflated H2 balloon = asking for trouble.

[21:56] <daveake> as reported
[21:56] <PaulCDR> some guy was out walking his dogs, he had 2 pugs too, they ran over and started to sniff round. it was quite funny watching us all panic
[21:59] <fsphil> quite a few dog walks up the hill today, and bikers too oddly
[22:00] <fsphil> walkers*

[22:04] <amell> diagnostic light came on about 10 mins after she did that and drove off.
[22:05] <amell> i ran the diagnostics, apparently intake manifold flap motor is malfunctioning.
[22:06] <amell> freeze frame indicates she was doing 54km/h and 2163rpm when this happened.
[22:06] <jonsowman> as in, swirl flaps?
[22:06] <amell> I think oil has got sucked into the intake manifold. will have to take it apart and clean it out and empty some oil out the sump.
[22:06] <jonsowman> or throttle butterfly?
[22:06] <amell> really hope i dont need a new part, as its £300
[22:07] <amell> will be docking her maintenance if so
[22:07] <jonsowman> petrol/diesel?
[22:07] <amell> diesel
[22:07] <jonsowman> i assume "intake manifold flaps" is swirl flaps then
[22:07] <amell> as in EGR flap motor?
[22:08] <jonsowman> could also be that, if it has one
[22:08] <jonsowman> often they're only on the outlet
[22:08] <jonsowman> i.e. exhaust manifold
[22:08] <amell> EGR should be easy to clean out. the other one bothers me.

[22:08] <jonsowman> I'd be bothered about how oil got into the intake manifold
[22:09] <jonsowman> suspect oil blowing past turbo seals
[22:09] <amell> would too much oil do that?
[22:09] <jonsowman> yep
[22:09] <amell> ffs
[22:09] <jonsowman> turbodiesels are very sensitive to overfilling with oil as the higher oil pressure blows the turbo seals
[22:10] <jonsowman> an unfortunate side effect to the extremely tight tolerances turbos are manufactured and run at

[22:14] <jonsowman> drain it to the correct level, clear the fault codes, and run it for a bit
[22:14] <jonsowman> you won't do any further damage as long as it's not overful
[22:14] <amell> jonsowman: its a VW TDI 140 - do you know this engine?
[22:14] <jonsowman> nope sorry
[22:15] heathkid (~heathkid@unaffiliated/heathkid) joined #highaltitude.
[22:15] <amell> do you think the turbo might have got damaged?
[22:15] <jonsowman> there's a chance, overfilling with oil is definitely known to cause it
[22:16] <amell> I need to put a padlock on the bonnet :(
[22:17] <jonsowman> you might've got away with it, needs further investigation
[22:19] <jonsowman> if you drain it to the right level and be gentle with it for a while
[22:19] <jonsowman> keep checking the oil level regularly
[22:20] <jonsowman> if the turbo seals are gone/going, it'll smoke on acceleration and probably not pull very well
[22:20] <jonsowman> if after a few thousand miles it's holding oil and running OK then you've probably gotten away with it
[22:20] <amell> its all a bit of a pain. 78K miles.
[22:21] <jonsowman> barely run in for a modern diesel ;)
[22:25] <jonsowman> anyway good luck with it
[22:25] <jonsowman> best be off
