[10:06] <mattbrejza> craag: let me know if you need a hand
[10:06] <craag> currently matt thing does 50/300
[10:06] <mattbrejza> due to complete lack of documentation
[10:06] <fsphil> mmm
[10:06] <fsphil> 300 symbols/sec?
[10:06] <mattbrejza> there is no reason it cant be made to do another symbol rate
[10:06] <fsphil> how much of that is FEC?
[10:07] <mattbrejza> you can send as much or as little as you want
[10:07] <fsphil> ah sweet
[10:07] <fsphil> does it use rtty framing or just bits?
[10:07] <mattbrejza> although there are four 'standard' amounts where the decoder tries to decode
[10:07] <mattbrejza> between R=0.9 and R=0.33
[10:07] <mattbrejza> na its just bits
[10:07] <mattbrejza> no start/stop
[10:07] <fsphil> fancy trying it with images
[10:08] <mattbrejza> well the payload could be anything
[10:08] <fsphil> how large can a payload be?
[10:08] <mattbrejza> max 6144 bits (message)
[10:08] <fsphil> more than enough
[10:09] <fsphil> is larger better or does it matter?
[10:09] jdiez (~jdiez@unaffiliated/jdiez) left irc: Ping timeout: 245 seconds
[10:09] <mattbrejza> larger performs better from a ber point of view
[10:09] <mattbrejza> however if you miss the sync then you lose more
[10:09] <mattbrejza> but you could make the sync longer
[10:09] <fsphil> sync is always a weakness
[10:10] <mattbrejza> or if there is no gaps between packets then the decoder can always assume another packet will follow
[10:10] <mattbrejza> (thats not yet implemented, but its not hard to do so)

[10:11] oh6gzt (oh6gzt@oh6gzt.fi) left irc: Ping timeout: 255 seconds
[10:11] <mattbrejza> also the ssdv could be modified to allow telemetry in the same frame
[10:11] <mattbrejza> then you just have packets head to tail, 6144 in length
[10:12] jededu_ (5284dde9@gateway/web/freenode/ip. left irc: Quit: Page closed
[10:12] <fsphil> probably better to package the ssdv into something else that also handles telemetry

[10:13] <mattbrejza> you would probably want to rewrite the decoder in c at some point though

[10:14] <fsphil> would there be much involved in having it decode from an IQ stream?
[10:14] <mattbrejza> not much
[10:14] <mattbrejza> the difficuit bit for me would be arsing around with the dongle interface
[10:14] <fsphil> thinking it would be nice to have it decoding from an FCD or rtl-sdr directly
[10:15] <fsphil> there is a simple library for the rtlsdr at least
[10:15] <fsphil> dunno about the fcd
[10:15] <mattbrejza> well the fcd is a soundcard?
[10:15] <mattbrejza> just need the freq control bit
[10:15] <fsphil> ah yes forgot about that

[10:16] <fsphil> I've started a few times :)
[10:16] <fsphil> but I'm not thinking of a rewrite, just a really simple decoder

[10:17] <craag> mattbrejza: Thanks, I may very well need some help. I've done some groundwork in integrating the binary with my pwm stuff, but haven't tried running it yet!
[10:17] <craag> fsphil: Just a command-line program that decodes and tells you when you need to retune the radio (if any) would be great.
[10:17] <fsphil> with the SDR I'm hoping it won't need to retune
[10:18] <craag> Yeah with SDR it can do it itself :)
[10:18] <mattbrejza> craag: :)
[10:18] <Laurenceb_> iirc i did that with xmlrpc
[10:18] <Laurenceb_> http://ukhas.org.uk/guides:chipcon_cc1020_software_define_radio
[10:18] <fsphil> fldigi already has a crude auto re-tune

[10:19] <craag> mattbrejza: As long as it doesn't take 80% CPU ;)
[10:19] <mattbrejza> well it wouldnt need much more than what my java one has
[10:19] <mattbrejza> and someone else can always do that :P
[10:19] <mattbrejza> thats your java VM's fault craag :)
[10:19] <fsphil> there are no good cross-platform C toolkits
[10:19] <fsphil> they all seem to be C++
[10:20] <craag> python+tkinter looked rather nice from what ibanezmatt13 was playing with yesterday.
[10:20] <mattbrejza> would you not use c++ for this?
[10:20] <mikestir-work> gtk+ is c
[10:20] <fsphil> gtk is butt ugly on windows
[10:20] <mikestir-work> it wasn't a recommendation :)
[10:20] <fsphil> hah
[10:20] <mikestir-work> just accept the C++ thing go with Qt
[10:20] <mikestir-work> *and
[10:20] <fsphil> yea
[10:20] <tweetBot> @Felim_Doyle: @daveake @mypifi What? No identifying marks or even an e-mail address on the SD card maybe? #UKHAS
[10:21] <mfa298> There was some discussion of replacing dl-fldigi on #habhub the other evening although I'm not sure it really got anywhere
[10:21] <fsphil> yea it'll end up being QT
[10:24] <SpeedEvil> one that could actually accept >8khz in would be great
[10:24] <fsphil> oh yes. MHz!
[10:25] <fsphil> and multiple decoder tabs
[10:25] <mfa298> could always join the web 2.0 (or whatever it is now) and use the JS thingy craag had found
[10:25] <mikestir-work> the webradio pipeline would probably be a good start, although I'm still not 100% sure I shouldn't just ditch it and use gnuradio
[10:25] <mikestir-work> it's a lot simpler than gnuradio though
[10:26] <mattbrejza> can you compile gnuradio to a standalone application?
[10:26] <mikestir-work> gnuradio is a set of libraries
[10:26] <mikestir-work> gqrx uses it
[10:26] <mattbrejza> oh right
[10:26] <fsphil> would probably be wise
[10:27] <mikestir-work> it's graph based, similar to webradio but much heavier duty
[10:27] <mikestir-work> big advantage would be that you already have blocks for most of the downconversion and filtering side; you'd just need to write the decoders
[10:28] <mikestir-work> webradio was missing a good channel filter to make ssb work properly
[10:28] <mattbrejza> well the downconverting isnt hte hardest thing to write realyl
[10:29] <mattbrejza> especially if you want to go straight into the rtty decoder from IQ input
[10:29] <fsphil> yea. just hand the modem the raw data and tell it the parameters
[10:29] <mikestir-work> getting the multirate stuff needs care to avoid huge cpu utilisation
[10:30] <mattbrejza> CIC filter as the first step?
[10:30] <mattbrejza> although whether you would mix to a low IF, CIC, rtty decode,
[10:30] <mattbrejza> or
[10:30] <mikestir-work> I think you'd probably want the modem to accept baseband IQ at a minimal sample rate, enough for the channel being decoded
[10:31] <mattbrejza> IQ mix each rtty signal to the baseband, CIC each 4,
[10:31] <mattbrejza> not sure what would be best
[10:31] <mikestir-work> then you could run multiple modems in parallel, each fed from a separate downconversion and downsample stage so that it can handle more than one payload at a time
[10:31] <mikestir-work> this is exactly my intention for webradio, if only I had more time
[10:32] <mattbrejza> dont suppose theres a way to access the rtlsdr from within js in a browser?
[10:32] <fsphil> I kinda hope not :)
[10:32] <mikestir-work> probably not directly. suppose you could use websockets to access rtltcp

[10:33] jededu_ (5284ddab@gateway/web/freenode/ip. joined #highaltitude.
[10:34] <mattbrejza> alternatively people could get over java :P
[10:34] <mikestir-work> I like the idea of a C(++) headless back end with one or more front ends that can be remote
[10:35] <mikestir-work> the js stuff I did on webradio would be one candidate, but a Qt desktop gui and an Android/iOS app would also be nice
[10:35] <LZ1DEV> websockets != normal sockets
[10:36] <fsphil> we need a libukhas
[10:36] <mattbrejza> ill make a start: https://github.com/mattbrejza/turbohab/tree/master/encoder/libturbohab
[10:36] <fsphil> which could include the modems, habitat upload, image decoders, FEC
[10:37] <fsphil> but yes, just turbohab to start with :)
[10:37] <mattbrejza> and a file called libgpsdecode.c
[10:37] <mattbrejza> which contains the following line:
[10:37] <mattbrejza> //WRITE IT YOURSLF
[10:37] <fsphil> I'll see if I can program up a payload to send images with it
[10:37] <mattbrejza> +E
[10:38] <mikestir-work> my mrs has taken the kids away for the weekend. maybe I'll get some time to play with webradio
[10:38] <fsphil> though it means writing a java ssdv decoder
[10:38] Action: fsphil dies a little inside
[10:38] <mattbrejza> hehe

[10:38] <fsphil> actually it could be fun
[10:38] <mattbrejza> well you havnt seen my java yet
[10:38] <mattbrejza> hopefully you wouldnt need to go near my bit
[10:39] <mattbrejza> just write a new class that takes in payloads of data
[10:39] <fsphil> mostly just need a hook somewhere to pull out the data
[10:39] <fsphil> oh yea java
[10:39] <fsphil> hooks are bad
[10:39] <mikestir-work> mattbrejza: how do you fancy writing a turbohab rx as a gnuradio block?
[10:40] <mattbrejza> gnuradio block meaning something in c?
[10:40] <mikestir-work> c++
[10:40] <mattbrejza> ok
[10:40] <mikestir-work> it's basically java. just s/final/const/
[10:40] <mattbrejza> well there are two parts, the trubo decoder, and the bit that does the framing
[10:40] <mattbrejza> the framing is the annoying bit
[10:40] <mikestir-work> ok in gnuradio they should be separate blocks
[10:40] <fsphil> turbo codes are a stream, or do they work on blocks?
[10:41] <fsphil> there is a proper term for those*
[10:41] <fsphil> I can't remember what it is
[10:41] <mikestir-work> does the turbo decoder provide a bitstream?
[10:41] <fsphil> for ssdv I could ignore the turbohab framing :)
[10:41] <mattbrejza> frames
[10:41] <craag> mattbrejza: There's a chrome extension (using nacl I think) that runs an FM radio receiver on an RTLSDR
[10:42] <craag> https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/radio-receiver/miieomcelenidlleokajkghmifldohpo?hl=en
[10:42] <mattbrejza> https://github.com/mattbrejza/rtty_modem/blob/master/rtty_dev/src/rtty/Turbo_decoder.java is the deocder if it helps
[10:42] <craag> It's open source too, code on on googlecode somewhere
[10:43] <mattbrejza> so your ssdv decoder will get a block of bits, and their length
[10:43] <craag> I haven't got an R820T-based sticks - so haven't tried it out.
[10:43] <fsphil> hmmm yea
[10:43] <mattbrejza> then you need to add frame id and whatever else
[10:43] <fsphil> no reason ssdv can't be variable block sizes
[10:43] <mattbrejza> its not advised
[10:44] <mattbrejza> as the decoder will try to assume the frame lengths are the same (as well as reading the packet header)
[10:44] <mattbrejza> so if you always keep it the same then if the header is misread then the frame still may be decoded
[10:44] <mikestir-work> I'll look at what would be involved in swapping out the DSP stuff in webradio for gnuradio. This is going to be the quickest way to get that properly functional, then that would be a fairly functional rx/decode back-end
[10:44] <mikestir-work> the json api stuff could be accessed from a desktop gui just as well as from the js stuff
[10:45] <fsphil> fldigi already has code for that
[10:45] <fsphil> dl-*
[10:46] <mikestir-work> for what? api?
[10:46] <fsphil> oh n/m, thought you meant for accessing habitat
[10:46] Action: fsphil catches up
[10:46] <mikestir-work> no, that would need to be a block that the decoders feed into
[10:47] Ron_G8FJG (5682df46@gateway/web/freenode/ip. joined #highaltitude.
[10:47] <mikestir-work> it could be wrapped up in another gnuradio block I guess. then you have a straightforward flow of data from IQ stream, decoded bitstream, frames, decoded data, into habitat sink

[10:50] <mattbrejza> boolean[] out = tdec.decode(v[0], v[1], v[2], true, true);
[10:50] <mattbrejza> you have to look deep in the LTE spec for these signal names
[10:51] <amell> any idea how many litres of gas there are in a Helium D50 container?
[10:52] <amell> 22.3L at 23 bar, i think.
[10:53] <amell> not sure whether to believe it

[14:49] <YU1TTN> Can anyone confirm power level of M0XER-3 on 144.800 MHz ?
[14:50] <Maxell> YU1TTN: about 100 mW if I remeber correctly
[14:50] <Maxell> B-63 also does telemetry on 434.500 MHz with 10 mW output power
[14:50] <mfa298> I think it may even be 10mW for aprs
[14:51] <craag> Yeah I think it's less than 20mW
[14:51] <YU1TTN> Maxell 100mW on 144.800 and 10mW on 434.500, right?
[14:53] <mfa298> I think it's more like 10mW on both bands (it's the same transmitter doing both)
[14:53] <YU1TTN> ok, thanks :)
[14:54] <YU1TTN> M0XER-3 passed over Serbia, and I was able to pick-up the signals
[14:54] <YU1TTN> signal on 144.800 was pretty strong, but one on 434.500 was very weak, but still useful
[14:55] <craag> The antenna is a 1/4 wave for 144, so not ideal for 434.

[15:35] <N2NXZ> Has anyone successfully used an AD9850 DDS module for an Arduino GPS tracker ?I know,I have asked this before.
[15:36] <N2NXZ> Looking to operate both UHF / HF on my tracking board.
[15:39] <mfa298> not many people have done HF beacons and they potentially carry more risk (longer antennas to drape over high voltage power lines etc)
[15:41] <N2NXZ> I have used 10 meter band for HAB,using thin magnet wire for antenna would not last too much high voltage lines.But using HF for long distance flights is better than UHF.
[15:42] <N2NXZ> Cost of average balloon launches may as well yield better chances of tracking
[15:42] steve_2e0vet (5acfcdf6@gateway/web/freenode/ip. left irc: Quit: Page closed
[15:43] <mfa298> Leo did try some payloads in the HF ISM band but the noise floor was too high for it to be useful (plus limited antenna length and power as it was also fitting in the 2m size limit)
[15:44] <mattbrejza> for ISM HF just attach a long bit of wire to a 27.12MHz crystal
[15:44] <N2NXZ> I agree with HF ISM bands.Very noisy,listened to some last night...not a good choice so thinking more like 30m or 20m bands.
[15:45] <mfa298> Darkside has done some HF flights (one of which I think was worryingly close to HV lines with the concern of what would happen if it (a: caused the fuse to trip or b: melting wire caused a bush fire - I think b: was the higher concern)
[15:45] <N2NXZ> I have the 9850 programmed to send test RTTY,but not really sure how to wire it with the existing NTX2 and GPS system.
[15:46] <mattbrejza> surely if you have it sending rtty thats it sorted :/
[15:47] <N2NXZ> Works pretty good @ 10mw,programmable freq is really neat 1-40mhz.Just not sure yet how to pipe the GPS/RTTY data out of it like the NTX2 does.
[15:48] <mikestir-work> reprogram the frequency once per bit period

[15:52] <N2NXZ> Pretty much as far as I am with this module
[15:53] <mattbrejza> so you just send gps data instead of HELLO WORLD? :/
[15:54] <mattbrejza> oh these are the DDS ICs which are $12 from analog @ 1k, but somehow £3 on ebay with a full module
[15:55] <N2NXZ> I bought 3 since they are so cool.I am quite new to Arduino,so it does not come easy for me to get these things to work.Had a hard time just getting the original UHF/GPS to work.
[15:57] <mattbrejza> you should probably spend some time understanding the two bits of code so you know whats going on
[15:58] <N2NXZ> I need to learn a lot!!
[15:58] <mattbrejza> well thats the idea of doing these projects
[15:58] <mattbrejza> otherwise you might as well just buy a spot tracker
[16:00] <N2NXZ> I want to test this tracker so far to see if it shows my position,already put the info on genpayload,what do I do next?

[16:35] <OZ1SKY_Brian> Sent LA3EQ an email, SP3OSJ is getting away from me soon
[16:36] <aadamson> Ah, looks like there is a chance that SLEET may make landfall before it runs out of altitude... fingers crossed
[16:37] <N2NXZ> Waht does the yellow and pink hilites mean in my string when I paste it
[16:38] <N2NXZ> field name / type?
[16:39] <aadamson> the Yellow one is the one currently selected, the pink ones are ones you'll have to add the field type etc too
[16:39] <aadamson> if you like I can try to do it for you?
[16:39] <N2NXZ> please do...lol

[19:30] <amell> nitrogen is used as a pressurizer
[19:31] <LeoBodnar> age does not matter
[19:31] <amell> why not? if it has a low solubility.
[19:32] <LeoBodnar> i don't have figures at hand but it sounds like "radiation event"
[19:32] <LeoBodnar> it probably migrated through the valves
[19:32] <LeoBodnar> N2
[19:33] <amell> i thought the N2 was behind the hydrazine. i.e. hydrazine is on the contact face of the valve
[19:33] <LeoBodnar> and its partial pressure went to zero?
[19:33] <amell> and the spin rate keeps it there
[19:33] <amell> it wasnt coming out basically
[19:34] <amell> they dont have a sensor to measure nitrogen pressure
[19:34] <Boelle_DK> OZ1SKY_Brian: hi there
[19:34] <Boelle_DK> a fellow dane arround
[19:34] <Boelle_DK> and just the one i have been looking for :-D
[19:35] <Boelle_DK> The words are that you have launched a HAB from danish soil?
[19:37] <OZ1SKY_Brian> yes but only once and i only did the radio tracker
[19:37] <Boelle_DK> oki... i just wondered how hard it was to get the permit to launch
[19:37] <OZ1SKY_Brian> i didnt realy have anything to do with the ballon itself
[19:37] <LeoBodnar> amell I am just speculating based on gut feeling
[19:37] <Boelle_DK> oki

[19:38] <OZ1SKY_Brian> i think it was something like 2000-2500dkr for the permit from trafikstyrelsen
[19:38] <Boelle_DK> i just asked "trafikstyrelsen" about it... say its 900dkk an hour
[19:38] <amell> Leobodnar: fair enough, but they know the valves are working, as the accelerometer shows blips when the latch valve actuates
[19:38] <Boelle_DK> and they did not even have a form for it
[19:38] <OZ1SKY_Brian> sounds about right.
[19:39] <Boelle_DK> so had to use one for toybaloons
[19:39] <Boelle_DK> its just crazy... if its only for a single permit...
[19:39] <OZ1SKY_Brian> i didnt the launch with skals efterskole
[19:39] <OZ1SKY_Brian> didnt=did
[19:40] <Boelle_DK> i can understand why people are tempted to call it an acident and just let go
[19:40] <Boelle_DK> but on the other hand if i could get a permanent permit i would be nice
[19:40] <OZ1SKY_Brian> Boelle_DK its possible to get a permit for a year at a time, but i cant remember the rules
[19:40] <OZ1SKY_Brian> It was not me doing the permit stuff
[19:41] <Boelle_DK> nope.... just talking here...
[19:41] <mikestir> and what's the fine for saying whoops?
[19:41] <OZ1SKY_Brian> mikestir i dont think you want to find out
[19:41] <Boelle_DK> mikestir: as i read the rules... the risk was jailtime
[19:42] <Boelle_DK> but the fine would be double price of permit
[19:42] <Boelle_DK> at least
[19:42] <Boelle_DK> with luck
[19:42] <OZ1SKY_Brian> Boelle_DK or try to contect flyvestation karup, i think they still launch for the metro service. Maybe you can pigyride

[21:14] <vcazan> Hello, My name is Vlad and I am from Toronto Canada. I have been started researching about launching my own balloon and have found the spacenear us tracker. I noticed that almost all of the stations were in Europe and non in Canada. Does this mean that the tracker can only be used in Europe or can I still use it in Canada with my own sole antenna? Thanks for your help.
[21:17] <LZ1DEV> We can't use APRS for balloons, while I am not sure Canada, the US it would be easier to go APRS
[21:17] <mfa298> vcazan: there's nothing to stop you using the system although you'll need to look up the legalities
[21:18] <LZ1DEV> there are lots for repeaters and igates that hear your balloon
[21:18] <LZ1DEV> then you can track on something like aprs.fi
[21:18] <mfa298> if you do use the spacenear.us system with dl-fldigi you may want to recruit other local stations to help receive it

[21:19] <James_R> Got this far but total novice http://imgur.com/CXaVGOo
[21:20] <vcazan> Yeah my issue is APRS requires a callsign and I would like to avoid it. APRS is really extensive in Toronto with more then 20 people listening so I can find someone to help me out with the call sign but just wanted to do it as a one time thing.
[21:20] <James_R> can hear a rtty signal but can't decode it
[21:20] <Tjalling_PE1RQM> Try the reverse button on the right (Rv)
[21:21] <mfa298> James_R: for most balloons you need to set sdr# to USB

[21:22] <mfa298> vcazan: you may the frequencies we use in Europe also need a license - but there should be other license free frequencies you can use
[21:22] <OZ1SKY_Brian> it looks like rtty to me

[21:23] <Tjalling_PE1RQM> Oh sorry, I didnt see the WFM button.
[21:23] <Tjalling_PE1RQM> Have you set it at USB now James

[21:24] <James_R> yeah, sounds very clear but no decode still
[21:24] <James_R> screen shot coming
[21:25] <mfa298> you'll want to select the flight your interested in in dl-fldigi and select autoconfigure - that should get most of the settings you want correct

[21:30] <OZ1SKY_Brian> Go to flight dropdown box and select sp3osj and then hit "auto-configure"
[21:30] <mfa298> James_R: you need to get the red lines (which you can set by clicking on the dl-fldigi waterfall) over the yellow bars (and the bit that's showing red in there)
[21:31] <OZ1SKY_Brian> and set the two red marker lines on top of the two red lines on the waterfall.
[21:31] <mfa298> OZ1SKY_Brian: it's his own payload - so won't be in the flights drop down.
[21:31] <aadamson> I think there s something else wrong there. The signal indicator over on the right is very low
[21:31] <OZ1SKY_Brian> mfa298 OH! i didnt notis that
[21:32] <mfa298> vcazan: you can use anything as a callsign - probably stick to something that doesn't look like a HAM callsign.

[21:33] <James_R> Got it :D
