[11:17] <G6SUQ_Graham> just normal RTTY

[11:18] <LeoBodnar> it is not allowed in FROM field which also only 6 chars long [12:15] <G8APZ> Maybe APRS has a problem with slash "/"
[11:18] <jarod> ya, i saw nothing
[11:18] <G8APZ> B-62 is strong, AMSTG isn't even visible here so I assume bad horizon for me
[11:19] <G8APZ> LeoBodnar That'll be the reson then!
[11:19] <G8APZ> reason
[11:19] <LeoBodnar> heh yes
[11:19] <malgar> PE2G: 434.149
[11:19] <malgar> but it is not precise
[11:19] <LeoBodnar> i was curious if you can use home callsign when you live seemingly permanently elsewhere
[11:20] <malgar> my sdr is quite random :P
[11:20] <LeoBodnar> well, maybe it is temporary
[11:20] <LeoBodnar> say a student
[11:20] <PE2G> malgar: Thanks, got a few greens from D-5
[11:20] <bertrik> both D-5 and AMSTG are getting into range, choices have to be made ... :)
[11:22] <G8APZ> LeoBodnar I think the usual thing is that the prefix/homecall lasts for up to 3 month stays. After that you should apply to the host nation for a call
[11:23] <jarod> Maxell seems i got extremely lucky with those greens :)
[11:23] <LeoBodnar> this would make sense, i have recently passed the exams and there were few questions on that subject

[12:54] <mikestir_M0MKS> oh you posted on the list about building an arduino tracker
[12:55] <Mark_____> I would like to launch a HAB. I've got the gps side of business working and the TX, I'm struggling a bit with the arduino code in the middle. The UKHAS arduino to NTX2 tutorial has been an excellent start. V useful
[12:55] <Mark_____> Hi Mike, yep, that's me
[12:56] <Steve_G0TDJ> Mark_____: I looked at lots of peoples code, found the commond parts and cobbled soemthing together :-)

[13:01] <Mark_____> Hi Steve, that's what I'm going through right now. Sadly, I'm struggling to make progress though. I've got the GPS to send GGA sentences only, I can cut/paste code to test I'm sending good DOmEX 16 which works well, any help would be great. I need to sign off just now (school fete to go to).

[13:59] <G8APZ> DF = Direction Finding
[14:00] <mikestir_M0MKS> you can use a directional antenna to find the signal from the rtty tracker

[14:13] Willdude123 (~willdude1@unaffiliated/willdude123) left irc: Ping timeout: 252 seconds
[14:13] <mfa298> PaulCDR: you might want to make sure you have a way of turning it off remotely (and possibly enabling it as well). I can imagine a buzzer could get annoying if it landed in someones tree and there was no way of disabling it.
[14:13] <Maxell> I could do the slowest contestia
[14:13] <Maxell> or olivia for even more fex
[14:13] <Maxell> fec
[14:13] <craag> or turbohab
[14:14] <craag> for binary packing and real fec
[14:14] <PaulCDR> yeah, mfa298, your right, some kind of kill switch on the outside would help
[14:15] <mfa298> PaulCDR: I'd probably go for remotely triggerable, switch isn't much good if you cant get to the payload and it's annoying the neighbours.
[14:16] <mfa298> there's also been a few instances of passers by picking up payloads when they've seen them so you may want to only have it triggered when your within range (say have something that you can trigger it when your within 500m)
[14:19] <mikestir_M0MKS> is that you doing slow mfsk Maxell?
[14:19] <PaulCDR> thats a valid point too i guess. any ideas on how to remotely trigger it? i have been able to make a mobile phone send text messages from an arduino, wonder can you make it read them too
[14:19] <mikestir_M0MKS> the rsid isn't working very well
[14:20] <mikestir_M0MKS> PaulCDR: use a pair of rfm22b modules or similar

[14:23] <mikestir_M0MKS> no but you can set it in custom
[14:23] <craag> G8APZ: They do, would need some testing to make sure it worked ok.
[14:23] <craag> The rfm22b needs a lot more programming to do the job.

[14:38] <jiffe98> B-60 a lost cause?
[14:38] <amell> perhaps if leo cant announce them on email, can someone else annouce it?
[14:39] <craag> amell: http://isleoflying.com/
[14:39] <amell> that requires me to check.
[14:39] <amell> just need an email
[14:39] <mikestir_M0MKS> every time I read that is "isle of lying"
[14:39] <G6SUQ_Graham> isn't there a web-page or something? www.isLeoFlying or something like that
[14:39] <amell> leo is always flying, i need to know when there are NEW balloons, and by email
[14:40] <G6SUQ_Graham> exactly!
[14:40] <mikestir_M0MKS> python script to poll habitat for payload matching B[0-9]+
[14:40] <G6SUQ_Graham> maybe a suggestion - no tracking on Spacenear unless you announce flight before take-off
[14:40] <amell> thats not a bad idea
[14:41] <mikestir_M0MKS> a mailing list post triggered by flight doc approval
[14:41] <craag> Polling approved habitat flight docs might give you some more warning
[14:41] <mfa298> sounds like we have some volunteers to impliment the new spacenear.us
[14:41] <amell> yeah. how does leos flights appear on snus, does he send flight docs?
[14:42] <craag> You don't need a flight doc to appear on snus at the moment
[14:42] <Maxell> auto-approve, duh
[14:42] <craag> however that might change
[14:42] <mikestir_M0MKS> he appears in the auto config though so he must have a flight doc, no?
[14:42] <craag> (when amell and G6SUQ_Graham write the new spacenearus for us)
[14:42] <craag> mikestir_M0MKS: yep
[14:42] <Maxell> mikestir_M0MKS: ok I'm qrt now
[14:42] <mfa298> I think flight docs are generally done at lauch time +/- 1 hour
[14:43] <amell> if flights dont need to be approved, then what is this approval for?
[14:43] <craag> amell: For the dl-fldigi autoconfig
[14:43] <amell> definately missed it. how annoying
[14:43] <mfa298> amell: the aproval makes it easier to get data out from habitat and for dl-fldigi and the ical feed
[14:43] <craag> also ties in a payload doc, so even if someone goes and messes with the payload doc (making a new faulty one), it won't stop people decoding your payload
[14:43] <amell> whats this got to do with snus anyway? Im talking about just knowing when flights are launched.
[14:44] <mfa298> there has been talk (for a couple of years) of having flights only appear on the main snus page if theres an approved flight doc but that's still a work in progress
[14:46] <G8APZ> B-62 still decoding at 370km elev 0.2
[14:47] <jiffe98> maybe when google hangs their wifi balloons in these remote places they can hang an aprs receiver along with them

[15:23] <G8APZ> Heck, green again at 409km!
[15:23] <OZ1SKY_Brian> G8APZ it would be pretty easy, as Leos flight are normally very freq stable, so it is pretty much automated with RSID :-)
[15:23] <G8APZ> yes, this one has not needed a dial tweak at all!
[15:23] <amell> just discovered arecibo has a 20 TERAwatt S-band tx.

[15:47] <LeoBodnar> is it just a stick?

[15:48] <G8APZ> LeoBodnar yes a Diamond X-50 on a 17m versatower but it isn't wound up
[15:49] <G8APZ> no preamp, and about 20m of URM67 downlead
[15:49] <LeoBodnar> I have a hatch into a loft area in my flat, was going to stick some stick in there
[15:50] <G8APZ> They sure work well for what they are. Not sure how indoor antenna would fare on weak signals though
[15:51] <G8APZ> it's travelling slowly I think, latest decode 438km
[15:52] <PE2G> G8APZ: Congrats, you just beat my 435 km, earlier today!
[15:53] <LeoBodnar> it's for mid-range tracking setup
[15:53] <LeoBodnar> or even local
[15:53] <G8APZ> PE2G Brian in OZ is doing better - he gets sigs further out from blue ring!
[15:53] <LeoBodnar> 69km/h

[17:13] <craag> don't worry G8APZ, I'll add detection of 'vehicle' in just for you ;)

[17:18] <LeoBodnar> so your page can run from a local disk?
[17:18] <DL7AD> good evening. D-5 has been found. they struggled about 2 hours to get all packages out of the trees.

[17:30] <amell> aha
[17:30] <mfa298> you may need to zoom in a bit if you select OS as they have a smaller range of scales available (and UK only obvisouly)

[17:53] <LeoBodnar> the most confusing bit of your map is Receivers(~8)
[17:53] <LeoBodnar> what does ~8 mean?
[17:53] <LeoBodnar> it's massively non-intuitive
[17:53] <craag> Well the problem is that a lot of the receivers upload late
[17:54] <craag> so you can end up with only 1 or 2 showing at the time it retrieves the data
[17:54] <LeoBodnar> is this average?
[17:54] <craag> the ~8 is the average over the last few packets, so you can see roughly how many people are receiving it
[17:54] <LeoBodnar> ah ok
[17:56] <on4bhm> what hardware do i need to also make a HAB?
[17:56] <on4bhm> what payload can i use?

[19:58] <astrobiologist> random linked thought - if someone who does EME tracked a hab, would they be able to get a detectable, indeed decodable signal? after all it would be way, way closer than the moon - and a much smoother target to reflect off

[19:59] <ProSpectre_2> are there trackers available for glonass? modules or boards?
[20:00] <arko> lol, today's song of the day "I get high" by Snoop Dogg
[20:00] <astrobiologist> ProSpectre_2 yes, in fact quite a lot of smartphones have glonass modules apparently
[20:00] <mattbrejza> oh on snus, not sure if common modules, the ublox8 modules will though
[20:00] <amell> maybe leos Bs should play a song on ascent.
[20:00] <mattbrejza> the ublox7s have glonass but not at the same time as gns

[20:06] <fsphil> RS-232 trouble. oh dear
[20:06] <astrobiologist> they're resetting their rs232 app again... clearly it is well dodgy! I am not surprised!!!!!
[20:07] <fsphil> this would seem like a bad moment to be restarting servesr
[20:07] <fsphil> servers*
[20:07] <arko> its apart of the procedure
[20:07] <astrobiologist> reading in between the lines the com port hangs if they keep it open?!
[20:08] <astrobiologist> I have a lot of time for RS232 in Unix, since Unix assumes _everything_ is a com port
[20:08] <fsphil> server freezes up. eep
[20:08] <astrobiologist> maybe even motherboard serial ports are ok (better on Unix etc than windows)
[20:09] <astrobiologist> USB-serial or serial PCI cards - might as well play Russian roulette
[20:09] <astrobiologist> grrrrrrr!
[20:09] <astrobiologist> that's basically about 8 years of my life right there
[20:09] <arko> why would you fly something that requires restarting to prevent freezing?
[20:09] <fsphil> I've never had trouble with a usb serial adaptor on linux
[20:09] <arko> lol
[20:10] <qyx_> yesterday i was reading nasa jpl c coding guidelines
[20:10] <qyx_> i am quite surprised now
[20:10] <LeoBodnar> shouldn't they be running some fieldbus?
[20:10] <LeoBodnar> like CANbus or MODBUS?
[20:10] <craag> ftdi adaptors = good, prolific adaptors=bad
[20:10] <qyx_> spacewire!
[20:10] <craag> that's my general experience
[20:10] <qyx_> i have many prolific and they are good
[20:10] <arko> LeoBodnar: sounds like its a ground station issue no?
[20:10] <astrobiologist> fsphil really or irony? :-) actually I don't disagree as long as you buy a trusted, high quality usb-serial from a specialised supplier like serialio.com (does what it says)
[20:11] <LeoBodnar> sounds like office automation issue
[20:11] <fsphil> really. just random serial usb adaptors
[20:11] <fsphil> never had an issue
[20:11] <LeoBodnar> i.e. for onsite comms
[20:11] <LeoBodnar> RS232 is shit
[20:11] <astrobiologist> linux supports usb-serial in the kernel, so that is a very basic level of support, so yeah, much more likely to work than if you need windows drivers etc etc
[20:12] <LeoBodnar> which adaptor maintains true > +-12V swing?
[20:12] <astrobiologist> most usb-serial adapters are very similar under the casing fsphil, I think some factory in China churns them out oem
[20:13] <astrobiologist> so you can never trust a new batch of adapters since they might be totally different in firmware etc!
[20:13] <mfa298> I think the only issue I've had with real serial ports is setting the jumpers for IO port and IRQ
[20:13] <astrobiologist> speak from bitter experience. if it isn't from serialio.com then it is a crapshoot
[20:14] <LeoBodnar> 2100UTC drop?
[20:14] <astrobiologist> arghhhh serial port IRQ mfa298!!!!
[20:14] <arko> sounds like it
[20:14] <mfa298> with USB serial if you spend money on something good then it works well. If you buy cheap crap (like the prolific) then you deserve for your system to crash and burn

[20:16] <astrobiologist> serialio.com baby, it is the only way to go. absolutely anything you can imagine with a serial port (for phones, over bluetooth etc etc)
[20:16] <fsphil> this message brought to you by serialio.com. for all your serial io'ing needs
[20:16] <arko> and budwiser
[20:16] <LeoBodnar> i use CANbus anywhere i need a serial link
[20:17] <arko> CAN is great
[20:17] <astrobiologist> I was quite into RS485 for a while since the hygiene of the coms was much stricter (i.e only one device at a time)
[20:17] <arko> used it in automotives
[20:17] SebastianFlyte (~sebf@pool-74-96-234-172.washdc.fios.verizon.net) joined #highaltitude.
[20:17] <astrobiologist> canbus is a variant of 485 I think
[20:17] <arko> just nice and reliable
[20:17] <fsphil> is that how the flux capacitor is controlled?
[20:17] <arko> :)
[20:17] <arko> yep
[20:17] <arko> time circuits
[20:17] <arko> everything on the bttf car
[20:17] <LeoBodnar> there is aerospace version of canbus as well
[20:18] <qyx_> canbus and rs485 are quite different
[20:18] <qyx_> yep, some can-aerospace standard
[20:18] <LeoBodnar> just a higher level traffic standardised
[20:18] <astrobiologist> weaklink is the crappy rs485-232 starlink adapters if no native 485 port
[20:18] <LeoBodnar> RS485 is just a wire level standard
[20:18] <astrobiologist> maybe I was thinking of modbus
[20:19] <LeoBodnar> CANbus defines packet structure, collision resolution, etc
[20:19] <LeoBodnar> modbus uses 485 yes
[20:19] <LeoBodnar> well old one
[20:19] <astrobiologist> not entirely Leo, there is also quite a lot about who can talk when etc. just two devices would be 422
[20:19] <mfa298> haha first usb-serial dongle on that serialio page is a crappy PL2303
[20:20] <fsphil> lol
[20:20] <LeoBodnar> oh, so 485 is a protocol level as well?
[20:20] <fsphil> 45 minutes until drop
[20:20] <qyx_> LeoBodnar: no
[20:20] <qyx_> rs485 is just layer 1 of rm osi
[20:20] <LeoBodnar> that's what i thought
[20:20] <astrobiologist> maybe they control their inventory mfa298... I have no problem with cheap adapters if they work and have no undocumented changes batch-batch
[20:20] <qyx_> modbus is datalink for rs485
[20:20] <LeoBodnar> just the wire level itself
[20:21] <arko> 21:05UTC

[21:14] <eroomde> i was/am being silly
[21:15] <amell> why has skirt deflated?
[21:15] <LZ1DEV> is the skirt supposed to flap like that?
[21:15] <arko> Yes
[21:15] <LZ1DEV> science
[21:15] <fsphil> it's not suppose to be going this quickly at this altitude
[21:15] <eroomde> just the fottage of the chute deploying reminded me of it
[21:15] <amell> that looks like a chute to me
[21:15] <fsphil> yea that chute looked good
[21:15] <amell> did they actually say there was a problem?
[21:16] <fsphil> yea they said the chute failed
[21:16] <arko> Was there a reserve chute?
[21:16] <Steve_G0TDJ> Yes, there was a debate
[21:16] <fsphil> called it a bad chute
[21:16] <arko> I'm calling it now, it was an inversion
[21:16] <CHRISG7OGX> deployment chute?
[21:16] <Steve_G0TDJ> Yep
[21:16] <arko> Bad chute just means it didn't work, no reason yet
[21:16] <fsphil> ah
[21:16] <eroomde> my stream is delayed
[21:17] <eroomde> but its possible the chute could open properly later
[21:17] <junderwood> lots of things can go wrong on a parachute that big at that velocity
[21:17] <eroomde> at lower mach numbers or whatever
[21:17] <CHRISG7OGX> sheesh 24 metres per second
[21:17] <amell> time to put your helmets on
[21:17] <arko> Like a true American hab coming down
[21:17] <fsphil> pico!
[21:17] <arko> Lol
[21:18] <Lunar_Lander> did someone get the altitude?
[21:18] <fsphil> quickly, find a bus to break its fall
[21:18] <Reb-SM3ULC> evening
[21:18] <arko> Haha
[21:18] <Lunar_Lander> xD
[21:18] <Lunar_Lander> hej Reb-SM3ULC
[21:18] <LeoBodnar> they had heaters
[21:18] <LZ1DEV> why are they standing?
[21:18] <amell> suspense?
[21:18] <Steve_G0TDJ> Excitement
[21:18] <arko> Did anyone hear if they had a reserve chute?
[21:18] <amell> fear of being crushed?
[21:19] <CHRISG7OGX> tension..
[21:19] <fsphil> they all need to pee
[21:19] <arko> Haha
[21:19] <LZ1DEV> or worse fsphil
[21:19] <amell> i thought that skirt was supposed to inflate
[21:19] <Lunar_Lander> that worked actually
[21:19] <Lunar_Lander> that was before the chute
[21:19] <Steve_G0TDJ> Will they re-deply the skirt before splash down or was that the test already?
[21:20] <fsphil> it's in higher pressure atmosphere
[21:20] <fsphil> the same amount of gas won't inflate it?
[21:20] <CHRISG7OGX> is it safe?
[21:20] <junderwood> CHRISG7OGX, not if you happen to be underneath it
[21:20] <Lunar_Lander> "It's not coming in ballistic, it's under the chute"
[21:21] <CHRISG7OGX> no pyros?
[21:21] <fsphil> good news

[21:21] <amell> i didnt see any spin motors.
[21:21] <CHRISG7OGX> bridging wires had explosive cutters i think
[21:21] <astrobiologist> target is 10m/s
[21:22] <amell> seems to be doubt as to whether its safe
[21:23] <CHRISG7OGX> yes onboard explosives have they all been used???
[21:23] <Steve_G0TDJ> One of the guys is avoiding the question of whether the pyros fired
[21:24] <astrobiologist> The "will our crushed wreckage blow up the navy" discussion :-(
[21:24] <CHRISG7OGX> prob doesn't know how to find out
[21:24] <Steve_G0TDJ> If it's that important, surely you'd put independant sensors on them?
[21:24] <amell> did anyone get what apogee was?
[21:24] <CHRISG7OGX> skirt was inflatable doughnut
[21:25] <astrobiologist> ok at least they have another flight next summer
[21:25] <Lunar_Lander> interesting, main goal was firing the Star48 and not the SIAD?
[21:25] <Lunar_Lander> the guy just said that the SIAD was the "cherry on top"
[21:26] <amell> i think he said after the SIAD was cherry on top
[21:26] <CHRISG7OGX> damage limitation for tax payers
[21:26] <astrobiologist> I think they're about to lose their cherry
[21:26] <fsphil> they here mostly testing being able to get it up there and launch it
[21:26] <fsphil> where*
[21:26] <CHRISG7OGX> hawiai
[21:26] <LZ1DEV> basically, they build a giant chute?
[21:26] <amell> the chute is 110ft wide
[21:26] <amell> i want to see the assembly, does it have a deploy drogue?
[21:26] <OZ1SKY_Brian> having a hard time decoding b-62 atm because of drift. anyone else having the same problem?
[21:27] <Lunar_Lander> LZ1DEV, yes and some sort of drag device on the system
[21:27] <CHRISG7OGX> i think we saw the deploy drogue coming down
[21:27] <amell> theres an idea. we need a black box for HABs
[21:28] <Steve_G0TDJ> An armoured SD card
[21:28] <junderwood> Looks like the parachute deployed but didn't inflate properly.
[21:28] <junderwood> Lots of work for someone to work out why
[21:28] <astrobiologist> SD cards are pretty indestructible already
[21:29] <astrobiologist> we picked up several from around the crashed rockets in 2010

[21:32] <astrobiologist> so they turned off the cameras at 15000ft to avoid damaging them?
[21:33] <amell> so theres a SIAD and a supersonic disksail.
[21:33] <astrobiologist> urmmmm go pro?
[21:33] <Lunar_Lander> yea they said these were gopros
[21:33] <Lunar_Lander> didn't really understand why they have to shut off everything
[21:33] <amell> the inflating skirt takes it from mach 4 down to mach 2.5
[21:33] <Lunar_Lander> the argument "could be damaged" wasn't really convincing

[21:34] <fsphil> Lunar_Lander: data could get corrupt when it hits the ground
[21:34] <fsphil> same deal with the spacex landing video
[21:35] <amell> fsphil: apparently the data is all safed and ejected from the vehicle.
[21:35] <Ian_> I got the impression that they were guessing a lot in the communication. Should have used snus or read the list of possible errors from the UKHAS wiki :)
[21:35] <amell> maybe they learnt something from spacex
[21:35] <fsphil> yep. but Lunar_Lander was wondering why they shut the cameras down for landing
[21:35] <Reb-SM3ULC> mm, if dl-fldigi just just won't start hab-mode... what's the most common problem?
[21:36] <amell> for video consistency, time to safe it all and commit to memory?
[21:36] <fsphil> yea
[21:36] <OZ1SKY_Brian> dont think ill be able to do tracking over night, the drift is too big for fldigi to handle
[21:36] <OZ1SKY_Brian> for b-62 that is
[21:36] <amell> oz1sky: wont rxID take care of it for you?
[21:36] <OZ1SKY_Brian> amell no as it drifts too much after the rxid
[21:37] <amell> strange, how far away are you
[21:37] <OZ1SKY_Brian> 60km or so
[21:38] <PE2G> OZ1SKY_Brian: I noticed the same. Besides that, QRM spoils reception since an hour or so
[21:38] <la3eq> I follow the drift with the VFO and get good decods :;) Hard work!

[21:39] <eroomde> the video i wanted to find earlier ^
[21:39] <SpeedEvil> Imagine it actually popping up on the tracker at mach 3 :)
[21:39] <eroomde> this test we just saw but in the 70s
[21:39] <Lunar_Lander> ah thanks fsphil
[21:39] <Lunar_Lander> hi OZ1SKY_Brian
[21:39] <eroomde> you can see the rockets firing
[21:39] <OZ1SKY_Brian> hi lunar
[21:39] <eroomde> leaving the balloon behind
[21:39] <eroomde> then it deploys the test chute

[21:41] <Laurenceb__> wait thats a balloon?!
[21:42] <SpeedEvil> Balloon + rocket I think
[21:42] <eroomde> rockoon
[21:42] <Laurenceb__> sheet
[21:42] <Laurenceb__> this is epic
[21:42] <SpeedEvil> A quite large one.
[21:42] <eroomde> rocket launches the parachute test vehicle up away from the balloon
[21:42] <SpeedEvil> 'fit comfortably into the rosebowl stadium' - of the ballon in the recent test
[21:43] <eroomde> basically this series of tests are expanding the envelope of tests they did for viking in the 70s
[21:43] <amell> so if we already did this in the 70s why are we doing it again
[21:43] <eroomde> where they did exactly this kind of rockoon test work
[21:43] <eroomde> see above amell
[21:43] <Steve_G0TDJ_> amell: Acess to modern technology for one
[21:43] <SpeedEvil> amell: because you need to test new chute designs
[21:43] <eroomde> the inflatables is especially new
[21:43] <SpeedEvil> And new materials
[21:43] <SpeedEvil> eroomde: did you see that 'red dragon to mars' ?
[21:44] <eroomde> conventional wisdom says parachutes dont really work above mach 1.8
[21:44] <eroomde> but the blunt entry bodies are not doing much beneath say mach 4-5 on mars
[21:44] <eroomde> so theres that window where you could be doing somethign useful to decelerate more
[21:44] <amell> whoa, that 70s test has a lot of rubbish coming out, and why is the chute inflating upside down
[21:44] <eroomde> and the inflatable decelerators are a possible solution
[21:45] <eroomde> the rocket is firing up amell
[21:45] <eroomde> away from earth
[21:45] <Laurenceb__> id like to know more about their rocket
[21:45] <eroomde> it gets it up to mach 3 or whatever
[21:45] <Laurenceb__> looks like multi nozzle?
[21:45] <eroomde> and then does the chute test
[21:45] <amell> oh yeah, i ve done that too when i got my delay wrong :)
[21:45] <eroomde> itll be multi engine Laurenceb_
[21:45] <Laurenceb__> hyperglolic?
[21:45] <Steve_G0TDJ_> Gotta go guys, thanks for your company - 73
[21:46] <SpeedEvil> The red dragon to mars thing swas interesting. Basically take a dragon, strip everything out of it, fir with a 1.3 ton rocket 2 stage pointing up stationary for sample return to earth .
[21:46] Nick change: Steve_G0TDJ_ -> Steve_G0TDJ_AFK
[21:46] <Laurenceb__> sounds silly
[21:46] <Laurenceb__> why not custom lander
[21:46] <Laurenceb__> haha nice https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xkf1zOGskmc
[21:46] <SpeedEvil> Add some extra fuel tanks. Land by using weight-steering to keep the trajectory at 10km or so.
[21:47] <SpeedEvil> In principle, you can get away with fairly minor modifications
[21:47] <amell> somehow i would not be surprised if dragon in some form makes it to mars
[21:47] <Laurenceb__> Rogallo died a couple of years ago :-/
[21:47] <eroomde> we saw that video back in the day
[21:47] <eroomde> you did too

[21:50] LazyLeopard (~irc-clien@chocky.demon.co.uk) joined #highaltitude.
[21:51] <eroomde> well this test was interesting
[21:51] <SpeedEvil> It's a fairly information light presentation - basically you go in and use a lifting trajectory downwards to get you to ~10km. Flip the lift vector upwards to stay at 10km, until the lift dries up (~mach 2-3) and then use propulsive descent
[21:51] <eroomde> i was doing some verilog
[21:51] <amell> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0zYxlLlN2Jw is fun. I wouldnt have liked to be in 3m59s landing
[21:51] <eroomde> but this was worth stopping for
[21:51] <Laurenceb__> SpeedEvil: one question, what is the advantage over a custom lander?
[21:51] <amell> were not that bad. do come back again
[21:51] <SpeedEvil> Laurenceb__: Cost, basically.
[21:51] <Laurenceb__> hmm
[21:52] <eroomde> i think ive done my time with irc sadly
[21:52] <SpeedEvil> It exists, you bolt two propellant tanks on, bore a hole in the top to fit your rocket, and you're basically done - at 90% off-the-shelf.
[21:52] <eroomde> but for popping on for specific things
[21:52] <eroomde> anyhoo, cool beans, see you all at conf

[22:32] <mikestir> sounds good
[22:34] <aadamson> Oh and my oh my are those 32.768khz rtc crystals tiny... sheesh, slightly smaller than 0603, not quite 0402, but dang close
[22:34] <mikestir> yeah you can get some wee ones
[22:34] <aadamson> I went and fixed my footprint a little just to help with manual lay down alignment
[22:35] <mikestir> I had to do that on the 16.384 MHz crystal on mine
[22:35] <mikestir> needed to pull the solder resist back a bit to make it hand solderable
[22:35] <aadamson> yeah I did the same - I used this one - http://www.abracon.com/Resonators/ABS05.pdf
[22:36] <aadamson> I also finally figured out how in diptrace to make the paste layer smaller than the thermal area
[22:36] <aadamson> I floated a few 4463's and had to go back and fix them the hard ware
[22:36] <aadamson> not any more, fixed all my thermals now
[22:41] <OZ1SKY_Brian> Goodnight all

[22:42] <SA6BSS> nite
[22:43] <mikestir> just contemplating whether it's worth trying to get a pass to come to the conference
[22:43] <mikestir> trying to get a price for a train ticket, but in usual retail style it's impossible to get a straight answer for anythin
[22:43] <mikestir> gh

[23:24] <astrobiologist> can anybody point me in the direction of a guide for soldering pl259s?
[23:24] <Mi0VAX_Pete> hey astrobiologist - youtube is your friend for this one
[23:25] <Mi0VAX_Pete> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n1nabA6yMoI
[23:28] <astrobiologist> Thanks I'll have a look now
[23:32] <Ian_> Best also to use clamp/gland nut ones, which like N type and BNC have a rubber gland and compression nut. fill the pin with solder and avoid the ones where you have to solder the braid.
[23:33] <Ian_> This is the type that you really want https://www.google.co.uk/?gws_rd=ssl#q=pl259+compression+fitting
[23:34] <Ian_> And these are the more common and cheaper type that you don't want.
[23:35] <amell> flux is underrated. I love slathering parts in flux
[23:36] <Ian_> If you buy a cable like Aircell-7 (manufactured by SSB) then buy the connector there also. Some cables like the Westlake 103 have a slightly larger centre conductor, so if you don't buy their plugs, then you end up necking the centre conductor of the cable to fit. An obvious point for future failure.
[23:36] <Ian_> Flux is good.
[23:38] <Ian_> Trust me Astrobiologist I may not be as clever as a lot here, but I've seen a lot of failed plugs and they are invariably at the top of the mast . . . :)
[23:38] <Darkside> also, avoid PL259 whrever possible :-)
[23:39] <Darkside> i've switchd as much as i can to N
[23:41] <mfa298> I'd agree with all that advice
[23:42] <craag> N is great. Mechanically a lot more robust too
[23:42] <craag> In comparison to the horrendous tolerances on some PL259 samples
[23:42] <mfa298> also for the smaller connectors (MCX, SMA, BNC) get a decent crimptool and crimp the connectors.
[23:43] <Ian_> Very good point Darkside. PL259 start to crap out at 100MHz and are getting on usless by 150MHz due to the impedance becoming non-linear. N-type for outdoor work and higher powers etc. and BNC for a lot of instruments etc. if it doesn't need to be robust.
[23:43] <craag> I use BNC <100W, N above.
[23:43] <Ian_> I would hate to have to try and solder up a SMA plug and cable.
[23:44] <Ian_> BNC not a good choice for outside permanent use as the springs will rust.
[23:44] <mfa298> you'de need to find a solderable SMA first, almost all the ones out there are crimp.
[23:44] <Ian_> Beginning to read like a plug wiki
[23:45] <amell> have you ever tried to solder UFL? crikey.
[23:45] <mfa298> http://ukhas.org.uk/guides:rf_connectors
[23:45] Action: craag slaps zeusbot with an n-type
[23:45] <mfa298> why waste an N-type
[23:45] <amell> UKhas wiki fail
[23:46] Action: mfa298 slaps zeusbot with a belling lee
[23:46] <amell> doesnt even cover UFL.
[23:46] <amell> theres also GSC
[23:46] <mfa298> amell: feel free to add to it. Most of that page I did in an evening and then other things became more interesting so it never got completed
[23:46] <Ian_> I just look to upu for SMA at the moment. Yet to be disappointed. Belling Lee. Not sure if you are young and smart or just a little older. Perish the thought of the standard TV plug. Must have sold a lot though!
[23:47] <mfa298> although the aim was to cover the sorts of connectors people generally see related to HAB's
[23:48] <Ian_> Nice page mfa298. Did you get my answer to your question of a couple of nights ago. Travelling from Sandwell, West Midlands. I think I will let the train take the strain for a novel experience of late.
[23:48] <mfa298> Ian_: I'm almost to the point now the only belling lee connectors I use are adapters to BNC, the cable is then URM70 with BNC's

[23:50] <mfa298> might be worth some posts to the list nearer the time looking for lift shares.
[23:52] <amell> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h1s-Nvzii94 awesome
[23:52] <astrobiologist> kicked off quite a furore there I see :-)
[23:52] <Ian_> Ah, yes, you did - short memory. That sounds interesting. Currently I'm looking at travelling Friday afternoon/evening and will look at options for returning Saturday evening or Sunday morning, but unsure. The next thing to figure is which of the hotels will be frequented by anyone staying over so that I'm not looking at walls.
[23:54] <astrobiologist> was just going to say... just need to solder a basic rf plug for exam

[23:54] <Ian_> If drones are used to harrass people it is to be expected.
[23:54] <mfa298> last year I think those staying over night visited a few pubs on the saturday night so I doubt saturday evening would be a problem
[23:54] <astrobiologist> I have some pl259s I picked up
[23:55] <astrobiologist> they have big rectangular cutouts in the casing... do I solder the braiding through those?
[23:55] <amell> i once slept on the floor of waterloo station, when i missed the last train, its not entirely recommended.
[23:56] <Ian_> Ah, yes, OK have fun with the PL259s. Some have an arrangement where you screw in the braid, but that's not such a good idea. Yes, but the whole thing will get very hot and you can easily screw up the insulation.
[23:57] <craag> For an easy plug, use BNC compression plugs
[23:57] <craag> astrobiologist: ^^
[23:57] <craag> Also far better then pl259 ;)
[23:58] <craag> gn all!
[23:58] <astrobiologist> I have ordered some crimp-type sma connectors and I have the right tool too
[23:58] <mfa298> pretty much for soldering any sort of RF connector use the compression types (N, PL259, BNC)
[23:58] <Ian_> I think travelling back Sunday will be not such a bad idea. I'm not a party animal as such but can have a rattle or listen well. Sleeping on stations is over rated.
[23:58] <astrobiologist> but stuck somewhere on the way from HK...
[23:58] <Ian_> Gnite craag
[23:59] <astrobiologist> have some cheap SWR meters with so239s
[23:59] <Ian_> Ah, but are the SWR meters rated to 70cm ?
[23:59] <astrobiologist> so might as well learn to do pl259s until/if the SMAs turn up...
[23:59] <astrobiologist> Ian_ yes they are
