[09:02] <LeoBodnar> you can igate them to aprs-is if you have igate software setup

[09:07] <Steve_M6SNK> Morning
[09:07] <UpuWork> morning
[09:07] <Steve_M6SNK> If I would like to start a discussion about the pros and cons of one of the guides on the wiki how would I go about it
[09:08] <UpuWork> shoot
[09:08] <Steve_M6SNK> its your interupt driven rtty guide :)
[09:08] <UpuWork> jolly good
[09:08] <UpuWork> is that on the wiki ?
[09:08] <Steve_M6SNK> using interupts is nice
[09:08] <Steve_M6SNK> I think so
[09:09] <Steve_M6SNK> http://ukhas.org.uk/guides:interrupt_driven_rtty?s[]=interrupt
[09:09] <Steve_M6SNK> I think there are other references as well
[09:09] <Steve_M6SNK> I just wanted to drill in to it a bit more
[09:09] <UpuWork> that was done by ibanezmatt actually but I think it was based on some code I did originally
[09:09] <Steve_M6SNK> post thoughts etc
[09:10] <UpuWork> http://ava.upuaut.net/?p=408
[09:10] <Steve_M6SNK> I have it working but I may move away from it
[09:10] <UpuWork> well I would always time your transmission on an interupt
[09:11] <Steve_M6SNK> well I think there are other considerations
[09:11] <Steve_M6SNK> but rather than just jotting them all here
[09:11] <Steve_M6SNK> I was wondering if there was way for others to input as well via a comments section for example
[09:11] <UpuWork> generally the over riding need to ensure accurate timing for the transmissions necessitates using interupts
[09:11] <UpuWork> you can get away with it without at slower baud rates
[09:12] <Ron_G8FJG> I've got APRSS32 , but am running out of screens to play.I'll look into it later
[09:12] <UpuWork> whats your other considerations ?
[09:12] <Steve_M6SNK> One interesting thing that I noticed was when I was trying to debug I put log statements in the interupt service routine
[09:12] <Steve_M6SNK> that in itself caused timing issues
[09:12] <Steve_M6SNK> there are others as well
[09:12] <Steve_M6SNK> for example the complexity of the code
[09:13] <Steve_M6SNK> the randomness of what is actuall executing
[09:13] <Steve_M6SNK> well not really random but ..
[09:13] <UpuWork> yeah you can't really do that
[09:13] <Steve_M6SNK> also I have actually done this
[09:13] <Steve_M6SNK> if mode =1 read sensors and generate telemery
[09:13] <Steve_M6SNK> if mode = 2 transmit
[09:14] <Steve_M6SNK> things like reading analog sensors means that you have to disable interupts
[09:14] iamdanw (uid459@gateway/web/irccloud.com/x-jhxurcdkerpmprap) left irc: Quit: Connection closed for inactivity
[09:14] <Steve_M6SNK> it all makes for a complicated code base
[09:15] <Steve_M6SNK> where as your other examples with a simple delay work fine as well
[09:15] <UpuWork> if thats dedicated it should work but interupts are a more elegant way of dealing with it
[09:15] <UpuWork> yes they work but as your code gets more complex
[09:16] <UpuWork> you may start to run into timing issues
[09:16] <Steve_M6SNK> the reasoning on the wiki (there may be of course other considerations) is that it allows more processing time for doing other stuff
[09:16] <UpuWork> that on the wiki is just a guide for you to develop
[09:16] <daveake> If (say) an analog sensor takes a while to run, you can usually trigger the measurement then come back later to get the result. General plan for ISRs is to do as little as possible in them.

[09:20] <UpuWork> ibanezmatt13 did it

[09:20] <ibanezmatt13> morning... :)
[09:20] <Steve_M6SNK> It would be good to be able to comment on the wiki pages somewhow
[09:21] <ibanezmatt13> yeah I asked this before, if there's something wrong on there, please feel free to change it :P
[09:21] <UpuWork> you can its an open wiki
[09:21] <UpuWork> give me your login and I'll give you permissions to edit articles
[09:21] <mikestir-work> Steve_M6SNK: you'd need to be using interrupts if you want to achieve minimum power consumption, so it's worth getting the hang of it for when you decide to develop a pico payload :)
[09:22] Nick change: DL7AD_ -> DL7AD
[09:22] <Steve_M6SNK> I already have permissions thanks - I didnt want to change it without some sort of moderation though
[09:22] <Steve_M6SNK> why is interupt driven code more power efficent than a delay?
[09:23] <mikestir-work> because you put the cpu to sleep while you wait for something to happen
[09:23] <mikestir-work> in embedded software in general, spinning in a loop doing nothing is called a "busy wait" and is frowned upon
[09:23] <Steve_M6SNK> I have interupts sorted - its just that I think that they are a complication that can cause issues
[09:24] <Steve_M6SNK> were doing that anyway in the AVR code
[09:24] <Steve_M6SNK> loop() { do stuff; delay(500); }
[09:26] Laurenceb (~Laurence@host86-168-104-213.range86-168.btcentralplus.com) joined #highaltitude.
[09:26] <Steve_M6SNK> Its still very nice to have the interrupt driven RTTY example there to be developed
[09:27] <Steve_M6SNK> and I am not suggesting at all to remove it
[09:27] <Steve_M6SNK> Or that in some cases its the right thing to do
[09:32] <gonzo__> interrupt driven is the clean way to do it. But it needs more thougght and a peoper undersstanding of what is going on
[09:36] <mikestir-work> that wiki example is pretty good really. There are some optimisations that could be made, but the way it is written is clearer for a beginner I think
[09:40] <Steve_M6SNK> yes but I aslo think that it would be good to put some detail about why you would want to use interupts along with other ways of implementing
[09:40] <mikestir-work> Steve_M6SNK: I wonder if you're struggling because you're trying to put too much in the isr? All that should be in there is the code to generate the rtty bits at the right time - this is the time critical part. Sampling sensors, reading from the gps and generating the sentence to be transmitted are not time sensitive and should be done in the main line
[09:40] <Steve_M6SNK> I know there is a delay example
[09:40] <Steve_M6SNK> I have it all working
[09:40] <Steve_M6SNK> and I have several variations that I have been playing with
[09:41] <Steve_M6SNK> not struggling just sharing what I have come across while implementing
[09:42] <Steve_M6SNK> I think that the best way to document it would be to provide the interupt example as an alternative with reasons why you might like to use it
[09:43] <mfa298> If you havn't already it's potentially worth using something like github to manage your code. That way you can also easily share what you've done and someone might spot if there's something obvious you've done wrong
[09:43] <Steve_M6SNK> I am happy to put a page or two together if wanted
[09:43] <Steve_M6SNK> I was thinking about that
[09:44] <Steve_M6SNK> Is there a UKHAS github repository already setup
[09:44] <mfa298> people generally setup their own and provide links to their own repositories
[09:45] <Steve_M6SNK> Do you think there would be a use for a centeralised repository so people dont have to dig around
[09:46] <mfa298> centralised repository only really makes sense if there's several people working on the same set of code which doesn't tend to happen for trackers.
[09:47] <Steve_M6SNK> might as well post it in the projects section of the wiki?

[10:10] <gonzo__> except uarts often will not go down to the speeds we use. (And won'y do 5 bit, so no baudot)

[10:33] <amell> my wife is good with irons
[10:34] <mikestir-work> you'd better hope she's not good with irc logs ;)
[10:35] <fsphil> none of the cameras I tried could image anything but the very brightest stars
[10:35] <adamgreig> mikestir-work: I've used them
[10:36] <adamgreig> they are my favourite ever irons
[10:36] <mikestir-work> we have one here and it's totally unusable. I'm wondering if it's bust
[10:36] <mikestir-work> it's just not hot enough
[10:36] <adamgreig> the temperature is regulated by the tip
[10:36] <adamgreig> so maybe you need a new tip
[10:36] <amell> what is the tip temp? try IR thermo on it
[10:36] <mikestir-work> I know. It's a brand new tip
[10:36] <adamgreig> and they're single-temperature per tip (by design), so if you have a lead-soldering tip and are trying to do lead-free, you'll have issues
[10:37] <mikestir-work> lol IR thermometer - we're a startup you know :)
[10:37] <fsphil> are they the ones with the coil in the tip?
[10:37] <mikestir-work> we barely have chairs
[10:37] <mikestir-work> yeah they're inductively heated
[10:37] <fsphil> self regulating
[10:37] <adamgreig> uses magnets too aiui
[10:37] <fsphil> very neat design
[10:37] <adamgreig> lots of magic

[10:37] <adamgreig> mikestir-work: that sounds dubious then
[10:37] <fsphil> some day when I'm growed up I'll get one :)
[10:37] <adamgreig> any reason to suspect it might be bust besides that? is it particular old or dubious looking?

[19:18] <as14af> Good evening highaltitude, I have been reading into several blogs and your docs and made me determined to build a low-end weather balloon
[19:19] <as14af> Most of the parts I think I'll need are already in my posession, but I don't intend to make a radio communication circuitry for GPS trace transmitting
[19:20] <as14af> Is there any more mainstream way to do accomplish this? The balloon in question won't travel as far or high as most of the projects I've seen around.
[19:21] <mikestir> if you have a ham licence and you're in a country that allows airborne operation then you could use an off the shelf aprs tracker
[19:22] <mikestir> gsm isn't very reliable and doesn't work in the air
[19:22] <mikestir> other option would be something like spot messenger, but they have been known to fail as well

[19:49] <Upu> err
[19:49] <Upu> sorry
[19:49] <Upu> derp not Norway
[19:49] <Upu> you can use ISM band

[19:50] <mikestir> netherlands can use aprs can't they?
[19:50] <Upu> yeah think so
[19:53] <as14af> mikestir: I'm not very familiar with ARPS, but from what I know is that it is a technology developed to transmit metadata over amateur frequencies
[19:54] <as14af> *APRS
[19:55] <as14af> http://www.trackuino.org/ but this looks useful
[19:55] <PE1RQM> as14af, announce your flight and we tune on your ISM frequency to receive your data
[19:55] <mikestir> as14af: sure, but if you're going to build an aprs tracker you might as well use a 434 MHz beacon
[19:55] <mikestir> if you want mainstream you can at least buy an aprs tracker off the shelf
[19:57] <mclane_> as14af: why dont you want to build a tracker yourself? That is really a very good learning experience - and balloon tracking and chasing is really fun!
[19:57] <as14af> I admire everyone's enthousiasm, but I have to do my calculations first. Qua budget and material I'm almost set, but I still have to think whether the conditions are good enough for such a balloon
[19:57] <mclane_> what kind of balloon?
[19:58] <PE1RQM> where in the Netherlands are you, as14af?

[20:12] <mikestir> you haven't got enough downlink bandwidth to send back video in real time, but you can send back images very slowly. An AVR is more than capable of handling this with the caveat that you need some external hardware to handle the raw image data. It has been done using a camera that output pre-compressed jpegs, for example

[21:39] <arko> the office is still crowded around the tv
[21:39] <Boelle_DK> Hmm.... looking at these guides on setting up a APRS repeater / igate... most use radio plus sound card... are there not other ways to do it... ie NTX modules and direct connect to pi?
[21:41] <mfa298> radio and soundcard is the most common way of doing it but you can get hardware TNC's to do it
[21:41] <mfa298> There's a TNC designed for the Pi
[21:41] <Boelle_DK> mfa298: do you know any? ok if not...
[21:42] <Boelle_DK> yep i saw one... but that only one i found so far was with DB9 to connect to radio :-/
[21:42] <mfa298> although with TNC's you tend to still need the radio (they need to get aprs data from somewhere)
[21:42] <mfa298> TNC's tend to be audio in, serial out (for receive)
[21:42] SiC (~Simon@cpc12-aztw24-2-0-cust193.aztw.cable.virginm.net) joined #highaltitude.
[21:42] <mikestir> you can use a cheap fm only receiver for the radio though
[21:43] <mfa298> the options that are software only (e.g. agwpe on windows) replace the hardware TNC with software and the soundcard.
[21:45] <Boelle_DK> oki... so an NTX at the right freq?
[21:45] <mfa298> the closest similar thing to a TNC you may have come accross is an old dialup modem. The Modem and TNC both do a very similar job. Just a different way of sending the data over an audio link
[21:45] <mfa298> NTX is a transmitter only and wrong frequency
[21:45] <Boelle_DK> upu has them at 144 mhz
[21:45] <mikestir> tx
[21:45] <mfa298> the NTX2s are all around 434 MHz,
[21:45] DL7AD (~quassel@brln-4d0c1e1c.pool.mediaWays.net) left irc: Ping timeout: 255 seconds
[21:45] <Upu> though to confuse matters I have a MTX1 here on 144.800Mhz
[21:46] <mfa298> there's the HX1 which is a 144.8 transmitter
[21:46] <Upu> I have HX1's
[21:46] <jededu> But do you have MTX2
[21:46] <mfa298> but if you want to receive aprs then a transmitter is the wrong thing to do that with
[21:46] <mikestir> just use a baofeng
[21:46] <mikestir> seems to work ok for upu
[21:47] Action: mfa298 has an Upu HX1 in a box in the other room waiting to do something interesting.
[21:48] Action: ibanezmatt13 still hasn't worked out how to get his working.
[21:48] <Boelle_DK> oki... i just thought there was something i could connect more direct to the pi and avoid 2-3 bits of hardware
[21:48] <mfa298> ibanezmatt13: if it's come out of the Upu box you've made more progress than me !
[21:49] <ibanezmatt13> lol, it has made it to a breadboard, but isn't actually functioning yet :P
[21:49] <mfa298> it *may* be possible to do it all in software with an rtl-sdr but I'm not aware of anyone trying and CPU may become a limiting factor (as it often is on the Pi)
[21:50] <Upu> in theory it should work
[21:50] <Lunar_Lander> Grand Final!
[21:50] <Upu> but I could never get it working
[21:50] <mikestir> you might get soundmodem/aprx to run on the pi with that wolfson audio card
[21:50] <Boelle_DK> bummer....
[21:50] <Boelle_DK> oh...
[21:50] <mikestir> although my experience of soundmodem is that it isn't very reliable
[21:51] <Upu> http://i.imgur.com/E3O3jMB.jpg
[21:51] <Upu> this works and is reliable
[21:51] <Boelle_DK> that card seemed compact
[21:51] <mfa298> other trick that might work would be rtl-sdr with rtlfm feeding audio into the pi-tnc

[22:47] <amell> roger
[22:47] <Steve_G0TDJ> Not strong enough here

[22:48] <amell> i see something, but its faint
[22:48] <Steve_G0TDJ> Yeah, it's pretty much in the noise here. I only knew it was TXing from the data display
[22:49] <gonzo__> Maxell, so you could take the wide band FM rx, connect the audio out to an sdr program and then tune about for ssb in the audio signal. And hear the ssb that the satellite is receiving
[22:49] <gonzo__> andthe dopler of the sat downlink goes away
[22:50] <amell> i have interference at 434.400
[22:50] <Steve_G0TDJ> amell: B-63 Tx now
[22:50] <gonzo__> the dopler in the uplink, from the emergency beacon used to be important to direction find the beacon. In the days befoire gps
[22:50] <amell> i mean.LEO
[22:51] <amell> I think i see it. Theres a disturbance in the force, but long way off decoding
[22:52] <Steve_G0TDJ> I got a few characters on the last Tx
[22:52] <amell> you clearly have a bigger stick than me
[22:52] <mikestir> I think argos still uses the doppler method for location of simple beacons with no gps (like long term tracking of animals)
[22:52] <Steve_G0TDJ> I'll be calling it a day when I finish my tea ;-)
[22:54] <Steve_G0TDJ> amell: B-63 Tx now
