[00:36] <Maxell> jarod: Then: Tools > GPS Arm > Luanch site: N 52.1 E 5.18, Select: Rinex and GPS Resolution 3D . Click OK
[00:36] <Maxell> And then select the .14n file
[00:37] <Maxell> However SondeMonitor needs a good quality signal :)
[00:39] <jarod> ya its gone now
[00:39] <jarod> so they changed balloon data?
[00:43] <Maxell> That is the most recent information so fare I know
[00:53] <jarod> cool
[00:56] <jarod> Maxell it says enter a number?
[00:57] <Maxell> Luanch site?
[00:57] <Maxell> Launch*
[00:57] <jarod> yes
[00:57] <jarod> ah no N and E
[00:57] malclocke (~malc@49.226.69.245) joined #highaltitude.
[00:58] <jarod> i guess no way to see if the proper signal is received?
[00:59] <Maxell> 52.1,5.18 then?
[00:59] <jarod> ya did that and good
[00:59] <jarod> i hope
[01:00] <jarod> is it connect 403.9 signal now has tow site carriers?
[01:00] <Maxell> fm
[01:00] <Maxell> get fm and make it is wide enough 15 khz or something
[01:01] <Maxell> strong signal might be wider
[01:01] <jarod> let me show ya

[01:02] Action: Maxell click
[01:03] <Maxell> dunno could be other type of sonde
[01:04] <Maxell> might be uk or belguim baloon
[01:04] <jarod> oh :)
[01:04] <jarod> this Rinex
[01:04] <jarod> could be still http://www.navcen.uscg.gov/?pageName=gpsAlmanacs - Current SEM Almanac - .al3, .txt <-- download .al3 instead?
[01:04] <jarod> or?
[01:06] <Maxell> I have no idea
[01:07] <Maxell> ^ is something PE2G pasted a few days ago when DutchMillbt tried to rx the Ozonsonde

[13:30] <mikestir> yes
[13:31] <mikestir> i've done it in software before
[13:31] <mikestir> it's probably easier to use msf though unless you have some specific reason for using r4?
[13:32] <Flerb> mikestir, well
[13:32] <Flerb> Radio doesn't go down to 60khz
[13:33] <mikestir> can you do ssb on r4? it's phase modulated so you need to downconvert the carrier to an audio frequency if you want to use a pc soundcard
[13:33] <mikestir> if you can tune usb there then that would do
[13:34] <mikestir> I'll need to dig out the software, which I may not have because it was a work thing. The necessary documentation is public though and it wasn't very hard

[13:48] <mikestir> don't know, might depend on the codec. I guess probably not

[14:09] <amell> i will be surprised to float. but hey
[14:10] <chrisstubbs> 5g of free lift will not give you 5m/s ascent like on that prediction

[14:11] <chrisstubbs> Will be interesting to see how far you can get it :P
[14:12] <amell> bit of a poke in the dark, but see what happens.
[14:12] <chrisstubbs> If its close I will see if I can recover it
[14:12] <jededu> How heavy is your payload
[14:12] <amell> its chrisstubbs payload. 41g.
[14:12] <jededu> ahh
[14:13] <amell> chrisstubbs, i will put the chute on the bottom of the payload, not the top, and tuck it in a bit.
[14:14] <amell> the idea being the payload will invert as it descends.
[14:14] <amell> its a chinese model rocket parachute i have (lost the actual rocket in corn&)
[14:15] <chrisstubbs> I'd tie it on to the top so the payload hags the correct way up. Otherwise it might be hard to track :P
[14:15] <amell> i was assured turnnig it over wouldnt make a difference.
[14:15] <amell> is that the case?
[14:16] Action: amell blames someone in here, but cant remember who.
[14:16] <chrisstubbs> Hmm that may well be the case, im no expert but I would assume having the antenna above the radials would send most of the RF power into the sky
[14:17] <jededu> Thats what I have found when testing
[14:17] <amell> you have four ground planes, and an antenna.
[14:17] <jededu> Yes
[14:17] <amell> i had to figure it out, as when payload was originally recovered, it was all mashed into a ball...
[14:18] <chrisstubbs> Yeah, and ideally the antenna wants to be facing down
[14:18] <chrisstubbs> heh that tends to happen
[14:18] <amell> looks like the antenna is the one thats soldered to its own pad.
[14:18] <chrisstubbs> Yeah there should be 3 pads one side and 2 the other
[14:18] <chrisstubbs> its the middle of the 3
[14:18] <amell> yup
[14:18] <Geoff-G8DHE-M> Indeed radiation angle is about 45 degrees between radials and active element.
[14:19] <amell> ok. on top it is.

[14:24] <amell> how much lift will that give?
[14:24] <amell> want to keep it slow.

[14:30] <RA9OEK> DL7AD hi there
[14:30] <chrisstubbs> Yep 60-70g of free lift should do it then
[14:30] <amell> 5g free lift will give 1.5m/s ascent rate - 0.15m3 He
[14:31] <amell> do you mind if it actually floats? I dont think it will but theres a danger.
[14:31] <chrisstubbs> Not at all, do what you like with it
[14:31] <amell> to get to chelmsford, it will need to be v slow ascent.
[14:33] <amell> so well go for c. 2- 2.5m/s ascent to hopefully hit chelmsford/braintree. that means i need neck lift of 81g
[14:33] <amell> = free lift of 40g or so.

[17:58] <Lunar_Lander> and where is Raspberry Pi C?
[17:58] <mfa298> which makes sense as the foundation have said several times that there won't be new version (i.e. different processor) for a while (i.e. at least a year)

[18:18] <Steve_G0TDJ> Hi
[18:18] <astrobiologist> I got some SMA crimp connectors in the post but the diameters of the crimps seem really tiny
[18:18] <astrobiologist> way too small to crimp RG58
[18:19] <astrobiologist> is there a much thinner type of coax out there that people often use with smaller connectors like SMAs?
[18:19] <qyx_> rg174?
[18:19] <qyx_> its 2.8mm outter diameter
[18:19] <pd3t> Herman-PB0AHX: we aren't going to steal my packets are we....
[18:20] <astrobiologist> qyx is rg174 any good? is it still 50ohm?
[18:20] <NigeyS> astrobiologist it's 50ohm yup
[18:20] <qyx_> it is 50ohm, often used to make pigtails, short interconnects or measurement cables

[20:08] <db_g6gzh> the cutdown flag changed at 8027.4
[20:08] <chrisstubbs> Geoff-G8DHE, iirc the problem with habrotate is it does not like payloads which use "count" instead of "sentanceID"

[20:11] <db_g6gzh> last time it flew I did a quick hack s/sequence_id/count/g but it still failed as there were 2 payloads on that flight
[20:12] <amell> what descent rate does snus use for its predicted landing site?
[20:12] <Geoff-G8DHE> Its so strong with me I don't need the beams on it anyway there tracking CHEAPO so about 40 degrees off from EDUHAB
[20:13] <fsphil> it varies amell, it can be changed to suit the flight
[20:13] <fsphil> after burst it uses the actual descent rate
[20:13] <db_g6gzh> I mean sentence_id and I just did it again with success this time
[20:13] <amell> where do you set the descent rate rate? is it in flight doc?
[20:13] <fsphil> nah done by an admin
[20:14] <fsphil> it should be something in the flight doc
[20:14] <fsphil> would be a more sensible place to have it
[20:14] <chrisstubbs> I'm still surprised the box on snus isnt auto populated by the details in active flight docs
[20:14] <amell> cheapo has an 18 chute, so it will be interesting to see what the descent rate is :)

[20:44] <Northants> Also on http://spacenear.us/tracker/ its not showing CHEAPO (although I just saw it on here) many freqs are not listed
[20:44] <F1VJQ> fsphil I can hear Kent beacon from here most days.. > 700km
[20:44] <fsphil> F1VJQ: impressive
[20:44] <Upu> its a manual update thing Northants
[20:44] <Upu> and to be honest I've lost track of whats launching this weekend
[20:44] <fsphil> everything
[20:44] <fsphil> everyone launched
[20:44] <Upu> btw
[20:44] <Upu> can people try this out http://habitat.habhub.org/mobile-tracker/?filter=EDUHAB2;CHEAPO
[20:45] <Upu> let us know what you miss from the original one
[20:45] <Upu> what you'd like to see
[20:45] <Upu> what you like and what you don't like
[20:45] <Upu> we are going to be like Google
[20:45] <Upu> and just make you use it anyway
[20:45] <fsphil> F1VJQ: maybe the local weather patterns mean long distance propagation on vhf is rarer? I don't know
[20:46] <amell> Upu: why do you need to know my position?
[20:47] <chrisstubbs> Upu I liked being able to click on points in the flight and see the info from that sentance, but I think all those datapoints is what killed the old one
[20:47] <Upu> personally I don't
[20:47] <Upu> but it gives information based on you location as it can be used mobile on a GPS equipped device
[20:47] <amell> ok
[20:48] <Upu> yeah I know lz1dev is working on possibly just displaying the last hour like APRS.fi
[20:48] <F1VJQ> fsphil normal tropo from here with 12 ele at 10m agl is about 700km- 800km into southern UK, Belgium, and near parts of Holland.. for decently sited stations
[20:48] <fsphil> ah, I'm using a colinear :)
[20:49] <F1VJQ> fsphil with extra assist from lifts have heard Madeira beacon for days at a time, and worked Sweden and Denmark on SSB
[20:49] <amell> how do i stop the dl-fldigi rtty red bars from jumping away?
[20:49] <Geoff-G8DHE> Keep the link to Google Earth and for the whole data to be sent out in KML format please!
[20:49] <amell> theres a button somewhere...
[20:49] <fsphil> no reason the data on points can't be fetched on demand
[20:49] <fsphil> ajax ftw
[20:49] <lz1dev> yep
[20:49] <myier> it seems quite nice, with the two rates in bonus
[20:50] <NigeyS> whats the freq for cheapo ?
[20:50] <chrisstubbs> I like the new tracker aside from that :)
[20:50] <amell> 434.298 ish
[20:50] <chrisstubbs> NigeyS, 434.297
[20:50] <NigeyS> tnx :)
[20:50] <amell> for some reason my rtty red bars keep jumping up. any idea why?
[20:51] <Geoff-G8DHE> amell right click the RTTY mode left corner and set the Recieve Filter Bandwidth wider its to narrow for drifting Tx
[20:51] <F1VJQ> amell you mean widen them? in Op mode/RTTY/Custom filter width
[20:51] <qyx_> Upu: new tracker looks good, at least it doesn't crash my firefox anymore :)
[20:51] <jededu_> The point of no return if somone wants to recover you are welcome :)
[20:51] <Upu> cut down didn't work ?
[20:51] <amell> dont think thats the issue, the frequency keeps jumping up.
[20:51] <F1VJQ> qyx I was getting freezes recently on FF with philcrump
[20:52] <Upu> Geoff-G8DHE log it here if you get mo https://github.com/rossengeorgiev/habitat-mobile-tracker/issues
[20:52] <jededu_> I teasnt connected it was a code test and ti see if the tmp102 went to negative
[20:52] <Upu> oh ok
[20:52] <qyx_> F1VJQ: the old one was causing freezes.. the new one was just instantly crashing ff right after loading
[20:52] <qyx_> but now it's ok
[20:53] <F1VJQ> qyx yes instant crashes ... but looks OK now
[20:53] <Upu> what balloon is it jededu ?
[20:53] <jededu_> The lipo is doing well its on the outside
[20:53] <jededu_> another test
[20:53] <Upu> they are ok down to -40
[20:53] <Upu> just not charging them
[20:54] <jededu_> It had a lot of gas in it
[20:54] <Maxell> Nice long -1.111111
[20:54] <LazyLeopard> Upu: Looks good. A cut-off "start from here" time (per payload?) would be nice. Slightly miss the green HAB-to-tracker lines (and associated pop-ups) but suspect they might be at least a part of what makes the current tracker a mite sluggish...
[20:54] <Upu> lz1dev is the author
[20:55] <Upu> if you have requests please put them here : https://github.com/rossengeorgiev/habitat-mobile-tracker/issues
[20:55] <chrisstubbs> Yeah the green lines are good if you cant remember peoples callsigns ;)

[21:08] <lz1dev> are you looking to actually implement one, or just a high level overview of the process?
[21:08] <lz1dev> it not easy
[21:09] <Neil_M0CJM> Just intrigues. I am a labview user and like to play about and be interested in trying to decode some rtty with it. Just to play really
[21:09] <F1VJQ> RTTY.... aha ... the achilles heel!

[21:41] <Laurenceb__> the dipole is hungry
[21:41] <myier> the cable between the antenna and the receiver needs to have a balun or else it acts as part of the antenna too, but does it change its length, as in "quarter-wave dipole", with a longer cable it's no longer a quarter wave or what?

[21:45] <myier> oh actually, I'm thinking about a dipole for the balloon emitter itself too, so that'll be a short cable between the emitter and the antenna
[21:46] <myier> so you genarally take special care about that?
[21:46] <myier> or do you use other kinds or antennas on balloons
[21:46] <malclocke> myier, quarter wave ground plane seems to be the common design
[21:46] <number10> that was near enough overhead amell
[21:46] <Geoff-G8DHE> Yup you will only get problems when using a several Watts of Tx power, then the reflected and standing voltages and currents will have undesirable affects

[21:57] <Laurenceb> using two inductors
[21:57] <Laurenceb> im not sure how feasible it if for really low frequency

[21:58] <Laurenceb> but you could just go for a long wire, if you avoid the 2m size limit
[21:58] <Laurenceb> the problem is that the inductors get heavy
[21:59] <myier> is RTTY the only mode that can currently decoded to upload data to habitat?
[21:59] <G6SUQ_Graham> I could go for a drive for EDUHAB, but its 30 miles. Will the batts last until the morning?
[21:59] <Laurenceb> if you reduce the mass of copper, the resistance goes up
[21:59] <Reb-SM0ULC> Laurenceb: mmm, some hurdles...
[21:59] <Geoff-G8DHE> myier, No any mode that dl-fldigi can decode will work

[22:00] <myier> great
[22:00] <Upu> I'd be surprised if they didn't G6SUQ_Graham but you'd have to check with jededu
[22:00] <Geoff-G8DHE> all the B-xx flights use Contestia
[22:00] <amell> wondering if cheapo will make its turn as expected.
[22:00] <mikestir> Upu: I accidentally uploaded one ssdv packet earlier - you can just delete it
[22:00] <lz1dev> chrisstubbs: bottom right
[22:00] <amell> s/expected/predicted
[22:01] <Upu> hey mikestir I wouldn't worry about it
[22:01] <Reb-SM0ULC> Laurenceb: sp9oub are supposed to try a hf-flight within a couple of weeks
[22:01] <Upu> (I don't have access to delete it)
[22:01] <Laurenceb> that will be interesting
[22:01] <myier> so if I understand right, you configure a flight on habitat, then dl-fldigi gets the configuration from habitat indicating how the payload will be decoded, then when it receives packets with correct checksum, data is send to habitat?
[22:01] <chrisstubbs> Ah yea there in chrome but not ff, might need the cache clearning
[22:01] <amell> What happens if naked man appears on ssdv?
[22:01] <myier> for non-text modes, how do you describe the decoding part?
[22:02] <myier> any kind of format is possible?

[22:02] <Geoff-G8DHE> That sounds about right
[22:02] <Geoff-G8DHE> habitat works on text data
[22:02] <Reb-SM0ULC> Laurenceb: how many extra grams for inductors? (have no idea myself..)
[22:03] <myier> ok
[22:03] <Geoff-G8DHE> or at least ASCII data for the sending element
[22:03] <chrisstubbs> Nope still not there in FF, oh well it will show up at some point :P The clouds layer is pretty cool!
[22:03] <Laurenceb> Reb-SM0ULC: if there was a mass budget of 3 grams for each one
[22:03] <Laurenceb> i.e. 6 total, that would be ok performance wise
[22:03] <Laurenceb> but thats a lot of mass on a floater
[22:03] <Northants> On http://spacenear.us/tracker/ I can see my location but its saying last contact 0 hours ago but the FL digi is sending the received data ?
[22:04] <chrisstubbs> 0 hours ago is now, meaning it is recieveing your data

[22:05] <chrisstubbs> I think the "x hours ago" thing is the time since dl-fldigi uploads your listener coordinates (when it starts)
[22:05] <Northants> I've been hearing CHEAPO for a while now tho
[22:05] <mikestir> you're in the list of receivers so it's definitely working

[22:46] <amell> can you tell if it is spinning?
[22:46] <Lunar_Champion> I think the sound of the RTTY tells that or so
[22:46] <fsphil> the sound of the signal sometimes tells
[22:46] <F1VJQ> fst QSB usually means spin
[22:46] <amell> is it?
[22:47] <amell> i must admit i didnt expect the descent rate to be that low at this altitude.
[22:47] <F1VJQ> fst = fast fading

[23:24] <jededu> Amell I have launched 3 100g and the calc has always under estimated the amount of gas needed
[23:24] <chrisstubbs> I'll be interested to see what dies first! let me know if it goes down to single carrier or whatever
[23:24] <amell> wilco
[23:24] <chrisstubbs> night all

[23:24] chrisstubbs (~chrisstub@host86-171-138-41.range86-171.btcentralplus.com) left irc: Quit: HydraIRC -> http://www.hydrairc.com <- Po-ta-to, boil em, mash em, stick em in a stew.
[23:24] <amell> jededu: yes, it is strange. it was obviously enough lift to take it up pretty fast.
[23:25] <jededu> The one I launched today should have gone up at 4m/s not 2.5 m/s
[23:25] <amell> jededu: if you save your flights and payloads, we might be able to come out with a better formula.
[23:25] <jededu> Good idea
[23:26] malgar (~malgar@151.44.240.127) left irc: Ping timeout: 240 seconds
[23:26] <amell> seems 100gs are not that popular for some reason
[23:27] <jededu> Dont float very well and dont go very high
[23:27] <amell> i have 4 pawan left
[23:27] <F1VJQ> Experimentation and constant learning make things better in the future
[23:27] <amell> jededu: are yours pawan or hwoyee?
[23:27] <jededu> pawan
[23:27] <amell> so we have a common base
[23:28] <jededu> yed :)
[23:28] <jededu> yes we need to work on it
[23:28] <amell> 60g free lift with 50g of payload gave 2m/s to burst at 21236m
[23:29] <amell> plot the data points and there will be a line
[23:30] <jededu> http://imgur.com/BtDGTjs and my weights were accurate
[23:30] <Herman-PB0AHX> i go to sleep GN to all
[23:31] <malclocke> trying to will CHEAPO towards Kent ...
[23:31] Nick change: Herman-PB0AHX -> Herman-awk
[23:33] <jededu> I wonder if G6SUQ_Graham is retrieving
[23:33] <amell> he said it was 30 miles
[23:35] <amell> thats good. battery is warming up
[23:35] <amell> voltage increasing
[23:35] <jededu> Might make margate
[23:35] <F1VJQ> jededu yeah, but Dreamland is closed....
[23:36] <F1VJQ> probably closed in 1970!
[23:36] <jededu> lol
[23:36] <amell> it was still open in 1988
[23:36] <F1VJQ> I saw Amen Corner and the Troggs there!!
[23:36] <jededu> Now the troggs :)
[23:37] <F1VJQ> I saw the Troggs about 5 years ago at Butlin's 60s weekend at Minehead too!
[23:37] <F1VJQ> minus Reg Presley of course
[23:38] <amell> wow. talk about drift!
[23:38] <F1VJQ> there was a supergroup with members of a number of bands.... Troggs, Amen Corner, Manfred Mann, Cliff Bennett and the Rebel Rousers etc
[23:39] <jededu> Cool
[23:39] <amell> hard to keep track of this drift
[23:39] <jededu> F1VJQ you in kent
[23:40] <F1VJQ> jededu No I'm in France... Charente-Maritime about 1 hr drive north of Bordeaux... I live in UK normally... in Brentwood
[23:40] <amell> yeah shes going in the thamase
[23:40] <amell> thames estuary
[23:40] <amell> i think the chute has broke
[23:41] <F1VJQ> or in colloquial terms .... the Thames estoory!
[23:41] <amell> its probably ripped a couple of holes in the chute
[23:41] happysat (~katpoep@85.151.11.57) left irc: Quit: Hunger-the-inner-diva
[23:42] <amell> daveake: breaking news. estes binliner chute fails and shreds.
[23:44] <F1VJQ> HAB CONTROL calling Cheapo... plese make a turn and head for Leysdown on Sea
[23:44] <amell> lost her now. very faint
[23:45] <jededu> F1VJQ ahh i worked in stanford le hope for years know it well
[23:46] Action: amell is sad at the loss
[23:46] Action: amell waves
[23:46] <db_g6gzh> sounding very spinny now
[23:46] <amell> chute line has ripped through the plastic.
[23:46] <amell> they all do this.
[23:47] <F1VJQ> jededu I went to Margate gigs when I was with a Maid of Kent....
[23:47] <F1VJQ> and Butlin's 60s weekends are great fun... well into my 60s at that time!! Growing old disgracefully!
[23:49] <amell> this is strange
[23:49] <jededu> Im afraid you are right amell its the end :(
[23:49] <amell> its now slowing down. c
[23:50] <db_g6gzh> it levelled off for a while there
[23:50] <amell> can you tell if its stopped spinning?
[23:51] <db_g6gzh> sounds more steady
[23:51] <amell> theres a strange nick in the descent curve, appears to have gone up
[23:51] <db_g6gzh> yeah, a sudden drop then an almost level bit
[23:52] Lunar_Champion (~kevin@p54889871.dip0.t-ipconnect.de) left irc: Quit: Verlassend
[23:52] <amell> yes went from 4398 to 44022
[23:52] <amell> how strange
[23:53] <amell> i think theres a bug in the new tracker, it doesnt show stuff after midnight.
[23:54] <db_g6gzh> the x-f telemetry viewer and the listener stats seem to suffer too
[23:54] <db_g6gzh> mind you, the payload is now sending the same data
[23:55] <db_g6gzh> so looks like no GPS lock
[23:55] F1VJQ (5a0be949@gateway/web/freenode/ip.90.11.233.73) left irc: Quit: Page closed
[23:56] <amell> can you hear it?
[23:56] <amell> still rtty?
[23:56] <db_g6gzh> yes, but 0 sats
[23:56] <amell> interesting
[23:56] <db_g6gzh> $$$$CHEAPO,1308,235235,51.462559,01.050330,3302,0,11,4.20,5*A0B0
[23:56] <amell> any partials?
[23:57] <db_g6gzh> they're all green, but same position/alt
[23:57] <amell> so the ublox has packed in
[23:57] Paul_M0PFX_ (5ce87c42@gateway/web/freenode/ip.92.232.124.66) joined #highaltitude.
[23:57] <amell> wonder if its raining there
[23:58] <Paul_M0PFX_> sorry if this has already been asked, but is there a reason Cheapo isn't moving?
[23:58] <amell> we think the GPS has packed in.
[23:58] <Ron_G8FJG> still 40 db over my noise floor here , for now!
[23:58] PB0NER (~martijn@moeling.xs4all.nl) left irc:
[23:58] <Paul_M0PFX_> yeah I am picking it up fine, just drifting freq a lot
[23:59] <amell> keep on it in case gps comes back
[23:59] <amell> are you hearing rtty?
[23:59] <amell> snus is not updating
[23:59] <db_g6gzh> it happened just as rmf temperature hit 0 so maybe ice ,elted and shorted something ?
