[01:04] <N2NXZ> I never should have used the uno,need bare bones to save power
[01:04] <aadamson> N2NXZ, do a google for atmel 328p sleep mode, and or arduino and sleep
[01:04] <aadamson> the trackduino code uses it as well
[01:04] <aadamson> and its open source
[01:04] <N2NXZ> I am doingthat now
[01:04] <aadamson> the uno uses a 328P atmel avr

[01:05] M0NSA_A (~HeliosFA@2001:470:6a6f::1deb) left irc: Read error: Connection reset by peer
[01:05] <aadamson> if it's like most processors, it will have different forms of sleep.
[01:05] <aadamson> *but*
[01:05] <aadamson> I suspect the processor isn't the problem
[01:06] <aadamson> the gps usually draw 2-3x the current of the processor
[01:06] <N2NXZ> It would be great to shut down UNO if or when it leaves usa
[01:06] M0NSA (~HeliosFA@requiem.soton.gia-lan.co.uk) joined #highaltitude.
[01:06] <aadamson> is there another processor that's functioning?
[01:06] M0NSA_A (~HeliosFA@2001:470:6a6f::1deb) joined #highaltitude.
[01:06] <aadamson> if so, just wire up a FET and turn off power to the UNO via the other processor and FET
[01:07] <N2NXZ> Just UNO/NTX2 and Ublox

[01:07] <aadamson> oh, so you want to basically shut it down between -52 and -10 long?
[01:07] <aadamson> what I call no-mans land
[01:08] <N2NXZ> yes
[01:08] <aadamson> wouldn't matter if you made any noise, on-one would hear it
[01:08] <N2NXZ> waste of battery,but yet want to turn on the nano rtty beacon...opposite action
[01:08] <aadamson> ah, so you are going to need to create some way to *wake* it as well
[01:08] <aadamson> and then during wake cycles, you'll need to turn back on gps, see where you are and go back to sleep if not where you want to be
[01:09] <N2NXZ> sleep leaving USA,Wake entering given hours later(prediction)
[01:09] <aadamson> so you'll need to figure out how to *wake up* too then
[01:09] <N2NXZ> But RTTY HF beacon should be off until no mans land
[01:09] <N2NXZ> yup
[01:10] <N2NXZ> I gave up on the soalr idea,would need several 1600 gram balloons :)
[01:10] <N2NXZ> solar
[01:10] <aadamson> I don't know enough about AVR's at that level to offer much advice.
[01:10] <N2NXZ> Google may
[01:10] <N2NXZ> A long extension cord would work
[01:10] <aadamson> I put my whole board to sleep, but RTC can generate an interrupt that wakes it up so that's how I do it
[01:10] <aadamson> hehe... yeah
[01:11] <aadamson> lighter would be long ethernet cable, that there's more uses for that :)

[03:07] <mrShrimp> Well, I was just hoping I could get some help with a problem I found with my payload.
[03:07] <mrShrimp> I'll explain the issue, and if anyone could help I would be grateful.
[03:07] <kc2pit> Sure.
[03:09] <mrShrimp> I've got one of these (http://ava.upuaut.net/store/index.php?route=product/product&path=59_60&product_id=68) that I'm having trouble getting altitude data out of.
[03:10] <mrShrimp> I also am not getting the sattelite count out of it, but that's a less critical issue.
[03:11] <kc2pit> 'Fraid I haven't messed with ublox GPSes yet.
[03:11] <mrShrimp> It might not be a probleme with the gps though.
[03:12] <mrShrimp> *problem
[03:12] <kc2pit> Are you getting lat/lon at least?
[03:12] <mrShrimp> When I read the raw nmea data coming off of it, I can see that the sattelite count is around 20.
[03:12] <mrShrimp> yeah
[03:13] <mrShrimp> It's only when I parse it through TinyGPS that something gets left behind
[03:13] <mfa298> 20 satellites sounds quite high for being on the ground
[03:13] <mrShrimp> Hmm, maybe I was looking at the wrong field :P
[03:13] <mfa298> is it connected to the hardware serial port on the arduino or are you using software serial ?
[03:14] <kc2pit> Seeing as how there shouldn't be 20 satellites on one side of Earth at once, yeah. That sounds off.
[03:14] <mrShrimp> I was reading the raw nmea using software serial code here: (http://ava.upuaut.net/store/wiki/doku.php?id=frontpage:levelconvertor).
[03:15] <mrShrimp> but the issue arose when I plugged the GPS module into my flight computer board, which uses Serial for tx
[03:16] <mrShrimp> The software serial was just to see if the GPS was the root cause of the problem, or if the alt data was being lost somewhere else.
[03:16] <mrShrimp> I'll take a look at it again...
[03:17] <mfa298> software serial has been known to cause issues. It's not the most efficient bit of code.
[03:18] <mfa298> It may be worth connecting the GPS to the hardware serial port and use software serial for the debugging console.
[03:19] <mfa298> if you just wanted to check the gps module is outputting good data an ftdi cable would probably be useful and connect it directly to the PC

[05:56] <jcoxon> so where does it have to pass to complete the circle
[05:56] <cm13g09> I just did a "SAY WHAAAA?!"
[05:56] <jcoxon> i assume its the longitude of silverstone
[05:57] <Upu> I'd say that yes
[05:57] <Upu> -1.1 I think
[05:57] <Upu> not that I checked yesterday
[05:57] <jcoxon> booo to lack of snus importer
[05:57] <es5nhc> Just to be clear - M0XER-4 = B-64?
[05:57] <Upu> yes thats correct
[05:58] <es5nhc> Sweet! Again, congrats!

[06:32] <thasti> i still don't comprehent how the FM modulation (for APRS, i guess it uses FM as usual) is accomplished - is the si406x just working as a single-tone transmitter and the oscillator frequency is "pulled" (hence modulated) by a varicap via the mcu? LeoBodnar ?
[06:32] <arko> seeing jpl in the 60's is just so weird
[06:32] <eroomde> arko: win
[06:33] <F1VJQ-Igate> still 970km out from here - - I guess Cornwall gets signals next
[06:33] <arko> i figured you'd appriciate that
[06:33] <eroomde> the ranger probes need more publicity

[06:33] <eroomde> back when you just made a little thing and flung it at the moon to see what happened
[06:33] <amell> ah. so she came home
[06:33] <eroomde> i beleive theyd serve as inspiration for the current crop of small organisations beginning to realise that going to the moon is not impossible
[06:34] <arko> yeah!
[06:34] <eroomde> im not an expert in this area but i suspect there will be a coming-of-age period when cubesat tech learns to cope beyonf the radiation belts

[06:36] <arko> im really hoping this catches on
[06:36] <eroomde> oh fascinating
[06:36] <eroomde> so you need hardy electronics and v small propulsion systems
[06:36] <eroomde> if you can put a cube into LEO and have it do translunar, you can buy yourself a drink
[06:37] <amell> to clarify it needs to pass 1.01 west for a complete circumnavigation
[06:37] <eroomde> if the upper stage puts you on translunar then thats definitely cheating
[06:37] <amell> 1.02234 west to be exact.
[06:37] <arko> haha yeah
[06:37] <amell> im surprised B-64 got picked up so early
[06:37] <arko> you know
[06:38] <arko> i havent seen INSPIRE's hw yet
[06:38] <arko> i wonder if they have anything rad hard
[06:38] <arko> JPL is supplying the radio/comm system
[06:38] <yo9hzn> could happen in the afternoon
[06:38] <yo9hzn> or tonight
[06:38] <arko> but the processor which handles a good amount of the C&DH is from cal poly

[06:38] <amell> oh it was off the tip of ireland

[06:43] <amell> in recent history
[06:43] <eroomde> yes
[06:43] <eroomde> in amateur stuff since 2000 that we know about
[06:44] <eroomde> most of the focus has been on high altitude latex balloons
[06:44] <eroomde> this use of medium altitude super-pressure mylar balloons that can float is pretty new in amateur ballooning
[06:44] <jaymzx> True. I wasn't even aware that balloons could make it all the way around
[06:45] <eroomde> and leo has made this envlope and it seems to be basically stable and happy indefinitely
[06:45] <jaymzx> I picked up on B64 when it passed over Seattle, my QTH.
[06:45] <F1VJQ-Igate> if performance = km flown for payload in gr is anything to go by then this is hard to beat!

[08:52] <boo> was B-63 bursting in canada?
[08:53] <UpuWork> no but it may have got sucked up into some polar wind and be out of contact
[08:53] <Geoff-G8DHE-M> Its a Pico they don't normally burst, leak maybe!
[08:54] <UpuWork> or it may reappear in about 12 hours
[08:55] <malgar> this could be the first circumnavigation without fuel consumption (except sailing)

[09:32] <ibanezmatt13> I bet Leo wants to shoot it down now and frame it, awesome! :)
[09:32] <mikestir-work> might as well let it go around again :)
[09:32] <Laurenceb_> someone needs to try to photo it
[09:32] <ibanezmatt13> yeah definitely
[09:32] <Laurenceb_> maybe scope would stand a chance?
[09:33] <mikestir-work> not if the weather's anything like it is here
[09:34] <Laurenceb_> does anyone have it on 434mhz?
[09:35] <malgar> I think that a telescope could be enough
[09:35] edmoore (~ed@ joined #highaltitude.
[09:36] <Laurenceb_> meade scope with automatic tracking
[09:36] <malgar> maybe after the sunset
[09:36] <Laurenceb_> hooked up to spacenear
[09:36] <malgar> Laurenceb_: exactly
[09:36] <Laurenceb_> probably overkill lol
[09:36] <malgar> :D
[09:36] <Laurenceb_> after sunset might just work
[09:36] <LeoBodnar> 0x17 got it
[09:36] <Laurenceb_> but its only at 12.5Km
[09:36] <Laurenceb_> so sky will still be blue behind it
[09:36] <Laurenceb_> so im not sure that helps much
[09:36] <malgar> 0x17?
[09:37] <LeoBodnar> i'll wait a bit and turn APRS import off
[09:37] <Laurenceb_> ah yeah i see the green line
[09:39] <SpeedEvil> This one is transparent?
[09:39] <SpeedEvil> So practically invisible?
[09:39] <SpeedEvil> Though it'd be itneresting to see the state of the envelope
[09:39] <Laurenceb_> i doubt you would be able to see the envelope
[09:39] <Laurenceb_> maybe catch some reflection
[09:40] <Laurenceb_> if the payload is a 10cm diameter sphere....
[09:40] <LeoBodnar> more like 5cm
[09:40] <Laurenceb_> assuming 2 arcsecond scope...
[09:41] <SpeedEvil> Nice filter, and point a big laser at it :)
[09:41] <Laurenceb_> hmm
[09:41] <SpeedEvil> DEtermine acurate pointing by reading off solar cell voltage
[09:41] <Laurenceb_> could resolve it at 10Km
[09:41] <Laurenceb_> not very useful
[09:43] <Laurenceb_> is there a hysplit for B-63?
[09:46] <Laurenceb_> is there a Log on 434mhz?
[09:46] <LeoBodnar> no
[09:47] <LeoBodnar> i'm still getting it on APRS but turned main APRS import off
[09:47] <Laurenceb_> ah, clever
[09:47] pjm (~pjm@uhfsatcom.plus.com) left irc: Ping timeout: 255 seconds
[09:48] <Laurenceb_> im wondering if the envelope will reflect enough to be visible in daylight sky
[09:49] <LeoBodnar> i think enough to be detectable
[09:49] <Laurenceb_> time to do some maths...
[09:49] <LeoBodnar> but not if it's 2-3 degrees elevation
[09:50] <Laurenceb_> as the envelope is large enough to be seen from ~200km with a cheap 3" scope
[09:50] SV9 (~SV9RHE@adsl- joined #highaltitude.
[09:50] <LeoBodnar> you want to be somewhere underneath it
[09:50] <Laurenceb_> yeah
[09:50] <LeoBodnar> due to air turbulence
[09:50] <fsphil> there won't be much contrast
[09:50] <fsphil> gonna be a pain to find it
[09:50] <Laurenceb_> sure
[09:50] <amell> on the face of it, looks like it might pass closer to the UK than originally predicted.
[09:50] <Laurenceb_> you wont be able to find it
[09:51] <Laurenceb_> point in right direction then take photo
[09:51] <amell> a CCD should find it.
[09:51] <Laurenceb_> then contrast enhance
[09:51] <Laurenceb_> amell: yeah
[09:51] <fsphil> people do image planets during the day
[09:51] <amell> i think there is a chance it will pass over land in the UK, seems to be heading that way.
[09:51] <Laurenceb_> i cant find sky brightness data...

[09:57] <Laurenceb_> doh
[09:57] <Laurenceb_> you can see it works from the photo
[09:57] <Laurenceb_> everything scales with distance
[09:58] <Laurenceb_> so as long as you can see the envelope it will work
[09:58] <Laurenceb_> this ignores atmospheric attenuation of course
[09:58] <Laurenceb_> so in reality id guess youd need to be within ~50Km of ground path
[09:59] <Laurenceb_> which from snus looks possible

[10:36] <amell> yes, probably cross the leo-meridian around 3-4pm. Im off out now.
[10:37] <Laurenceb_> actually according to FAI rules
[10:37] <F1VJQ> 83kph = 51mph approx
[10:37] <Laurenceb_> it only has to pass 2 degrees west
[10:37] <amell> why?
[10:37] <amell> that makes no sense.

[10:38] <Laurenceb_> lolz
[10:38] <amell> rubbish

[10:38] <amell> it has to pass 1.02 longitude line
[10:38] <mattbrejza> every degree?
[10:38] <Laurenceb_> yes
[10:38] <F1VJQ> redefines as all longitude lines plus one
[10:39] <amell> friend of mine sailed the world solo via the 5 capes. we had this problem too. what constitutes a circumnav - there were several definitions!
[10:39] <amell> one was that he had to pass through two antipodal points - this wont be possible with a balloon.

[11:40] <SpeedEvil> It makes conference recordings lots better.
[11:40] <Boelle_DK> oh...
[11:40] <Geoff-G8DHE> Yes
[11:40] <Boelle_DK> freq tracking its called
[11:41] <mfa298> yes
[11:41] <Boelle_DK> what settings?
[11:41] <mfa298> lots of people use it
[11:41] <Geoff-G8DHE> yes but the software needs to support it I use SDR-Radio but its not available for the Mac
[11:41] <mfa298> I've got it setup using rigcat to talk to my TS-2000

[11:44] <mattbrejza> astra got bored of listening to string after string of contestia and has decided to switch for aprs for more of a challenge :P

[11:46] <gonzo__> or buy a shed on a hill

[11:55] <Geoff-G8DHE> You need something between the DOngle and dl-fldigi, d;-fldigi is only a modem not an SDR receiver
[11:55] <craag_philcrump> I'll know more this evening.
[11:55] <mfa298> Boelle_DK: it depends on your radio (in your case I think gqrx) and whether it supports remote control (I don't think gqrx does)
[11:56] <Boelle_DK> what radio?
[11:56] <mattbrejza> ah
[11:56] <Boelle_DK> the guides says it can go direct?
[11:56] <Geoff-G8DHE> which guide ?
[11:57] <Geoff-G8DHE> You need Dongle into USB, USB drivers, SDR software, modem software

[12:00] <Boelle_DK> yeah... me an arse hat

[12:00] <mfa298> maybe try tuning to a locl FM station and see how te waterfall changes
[12:00] <Boelle_DK> as i just said i only have the dongle in and dl-fldigi

[13:04] <simium> hi, I have a HAM radio noob question
[13:04] <lz1dev> reboot is not needed, just kill the ff process
[13:04] <simium> I don't have a HAM radio license at the moment, but I'm making a SSDV hardware for someone who does
[13:05] <simium> it's a problem that I test it again dl-fldigi and upload telemetry or SSDV images without having said license?
[13:05] <simium> is it*
[13:05] <gonzo__> simium, are you in the UK?
[13:06] <simium> nope, Spain
[13:07] <mfa298> you only need the HAM license for the transmitter if it's running as an Amateur station rather than as an ISM radio
[13:07] <gonzo__> not sure of the legality in spain, but in the UK, we use the ISM band which is licence exempt. So no licence needed to TX. And the RX side does not need a licence
[13:07] <Boelle_DK> the rules are similar....
[13:07] <mfa298> if it's on 434 MHz and is 10mW it can probably be classed as ISM (but check local licensing laws)
[13:07] <Boelle_DK> one of the nice things about EU....
[13:08] <SpeedEvil> gonzo__: at teh low power, but not with a normal transmitter at regular power
[13:08] <gonzo__> the ISM band does share the same frequencies with the 70 amateur band, but legally (in the uk) it is separate
[13:08] <Boelle_DK> so if it runs on a HAM freq you have to have a licensed HAM at your side
[13:08] <mfa298> Boelle_DK: it's a ITU Region thing not just EU but different countries can have slightly different rules on whats allowed
[13:08] <Boelle_DK> yep... slightly... hence i used the word similar

[13:10] <Boelle_DK> the freq is EU wide license exempt
[13:10] <Boelle_DK> excempt
[13:10] <simium> and the callsign that I use can be anything?
[13:10] <Boelle_DK> practical yes

[13:11] <simium> thank you
[13:11] <mfa298> probably best to stick to something that's obviously not an amateur callsign then it's clear you're operating under ISM

[13:21] <Boelle_DK> i saw the ubuntu suggestions.... not the route i want
[13:21] <thasti> does anyone else have some input for me? I've got a si4060 which responds to commands (get part info etc.) correctly, but never returns CTS after issuing the power_up-command .. read cmd buffer always returns 0x00 from this point on ..
[13:21] <lz1dev> it's the zoom level
[13:22] <lz1dev> im certain
[13:22] <Geoff-G8DHE-M> Yup I know its not that ;-)
[13:22] <nats`> thasti take care to the chip select :)
[13:22] MLow (~MLow@ joined #highaltitude.
[13:22] <nats`> the si446x has a weird way to handle it
[13:22] <thasti> nats`: does it need to be anything special for the power up command?
[13:22] <nats`> nop for the power up command you have to wait a little
[13:23] <nats`> you can normally catch the POR indication
[13:23] <nats`> on gpio 1 or 0
[13:23] <Geoff-G8DHE-M> Ahh you gave me an idea Ctril+ and Ctrl- brought it back!
[13:23] <craag_philcrump> lz1dev: Found it - long thread - I'll read up on it later rather than blindly trying to merge it
[13:23] <Geoff-G8DHE-M> Ctrrl0 no effect
[13:23] <nats`> thasti you need to deassert and reassert the chip select before reading CTS
[13:24] <nats`> cs=0->CMD->cs=1->cs=0->CTS->cs=1
[13:24] <Boelle_DK> in fact b64 is going to be super ideal for me today... will pass less than 10 km south of me
[13:24] <Geoff-G8DHE-M> Now how did that get thru a reboot I wonder ?
[13:24] <Boelle_DK> if predictions holds
[13:24] <thasti> nats`: ok, that's what i do - but do i have to wait before reading cmd_buffer or can i start polling it directly afterwards?
[13:24] <Boelle_DK> i wished i had an usb extension long enough to reach window

[13:26] <nats`> thasti after power up there is a wait time, after a command you poll cts until the chip is ready
[13:26] <nats`> I never got the case where it's not directly
[13:26] <nats`> but maybe when handling fifo or time consumming stuff it's important

[16:10] <on4bhm> LeoB: we will try to compete.... but it will be hard! very hard!
[16:11] <Jess--M0VBR> challenge then will be to try and circumnavigate the planet twice in one flight

[16:11] <Lunar_Lander> :)
[16:11] <on4bhm> LeoB: your 11-12grams is the max!!

[16:16] <Lunar_Lander> when I gave him the updates of your balloons getting farther and farther
[16:16] <arko> :)
[16:16] <Lunar_Lander> the one reaching Japan was awesome

[16:22] <LeoBodnar> lol is this mic live?
[16:23] <Maxell> LeoBodnar: yes do your announcement now!
[16:23] <astrobiologist> That aprs packet I decoded at 13.51.36... I must admit, it is letter perfect for the one decoded and iGated by MB7UFO at precisely the same time. so either an errant packet went out on 434.5Mhz as well (of course extremely unlikely), or I accidentally switched on 144.8 on my handie on the other channel without noticing it, whilst setting up on the picnic table on st michael's mount. which is pretty weird!!!!
[16:23] <x-f> will there be a press conference?

[17:57] <astrobiologist-i> Here's a question: I have had good fun playing with my Kenwood TH- F7E and homemade cable. But plugging in the cable mutes the audio from the handheld. How can I splice in a set of earphones?
[17:57] <Boelle_DK> think it 200 something
[17:58] <Boelle_DK> astrobiologist: its a switch inside the kenwood that disables the speaker
[17:58] <astrobiologist-i> presumably my ipad or laptop or whatever is expecting an 8 ohm audio connection
[17:58] <Boelle_DK> if you are bold you can open it up and change the way it works
[17:58] <astrobiologist-i> so just attaching another speaker or earphone in parallel would end up with only 4 ohms

[18:02] <Boelle_DK> nono... if windows then in sound settings
[18:02] <Boelle_DK> recording tab...
[18:02] <astrobiologist-i> for instance, pocketpacket uses both the audio in and audio out lines - it is basically a TNC
[18:02] <Boelle_DK> then the listen tab....
[18:03] <Boelle_DK> enables you to listen to what comes in
[18:03] <astrobiologist-i> I wish I could hear what it hears, or outputs, but basically since the iPad speaker is muted (since the audio out line is used), and the Kendwood speaker is muted, the whole thing is silent
[18:04] <astrobiologist-i> OK, thanks, so I have a "listen in" solution in software then for Windows and the android app, but what about the iPad any anything else when you want to listen in in hardware?

[18:07] <Boelle_DK> of course
[18:07] <astrobiologist-i> with 4 ohms in series then the worse than can happens, it seems to me, is that of only one audio device is used, not two, then it is 12 ohms altogether and it would just seem a bit quiet

[18:07] <astrobiologist-i> kenwood th-f7e is normal radio yes, not SDR etc

[21:12] <SpeedEvil> yup
[21:12] <fsphil> oh yes that too
[21:12] <SpeedEvil> I kinda wish they'd tried aerobraking at pluto
[21:12] <amell> dont think pluto even has an atmosphere...
[21:13] <SpeedEvil> It' not - completely - out of the question - but it does require a very beyond the state of the art chute, and a pre-probe to map the atmosphere
[21:13] <SpeedEvil> fucking thin helium
[21:13] <fsphil> and then Dawn arrives at Ceres in Feburary
[21:13] <SpeedEvil> Which makes the scale height really quite good, though the density sucks
[21:13] <SpeedEvil> so in principle you can get quite decent delta-v
[21:14] <amell> I was quite disappointed by the poor images from the titan lander - hope they do better this time.

[21:21] <amell> personally the most exciting mission for me is the 2026 Jupiter mission with europa lander.
[21:21] <OZ1SKY_Brian> gn felix
[21:21] <amell> they will actually send an autonomous robot through a hole in the ice on europa to explore the sea.
[21:22] <mfa298> I've added all the steps to get the required dependancies into that section now.
[21:22] <fsphil> Enceladus is where all the fun is at now
[21:23] <amell> europa is believed to have life under the ice
[21:23] <mattbrejza> i dont think their belief is quite that strong
[21:24] <SpeedEvil> hmm. 0th order sums. Plutos diameter is 2300km, and scale height of the atmosphere is 60km. A chord tangent to the surface with ends 60km has a length 1500km. The density of the plutonian atmosphere is about 5ug/m^3, so a sectional density of 4.5 grams/m^2
[21:24] <SpeedEvil> This may be tricky :)
[21:24] <amell> 5ug/m3 is ridiculously thin
[21:24] <fsphil> it's a bit of a stretch to say it's believed to have life
[21:24] <yo9ict> Any SDR /rx that is still picking up B-64 ?
[21:24] <amell> ok, i should have phrased that better

[22:33] <Maxell> Ok for some reason the 128 spacing works perfectly all greens incoming
[22:34] <PA3WEG> Now trying at home
[22:35] <Boelle_DK> still 434496 ?
[22:35] <PA3WEG> but in the middle of a field, it was OK to RX

[22:37] <amell> have you used fl-digi to hear balloons before?
[22:38] <Boelle_DK> nope first night and have asked for a lot of help today
[22:38] <Boelle_DK> even offered to install teamviewer
[22:38] <amell> look for the pips and potentially contesia
[22:38] <Boelle_DK> so people could check themselfes
[22:38] <amell> good luck.
[22:38] <amell> I couldnt receive it, but my aerial is in the loft and there was a rain storm
[22:39] <Boelle_DK> :-/
[22:39] <amell> i normally have no problem getting Bs within 250km or so.
[22:40] <Boelle_DK> the blue is just about 15 mins in car south west
[22:40] <Boelle_DK> still cant see anything big yet
[22:40] <Boelle_DK> but again ½ wave whip... living on first floor
[22:40] <amell> realistically for 10m aMSL antenna you might get something half way between blue and green. if youre lucky, earlier.

[22:50] <Boelle_DK> sdr#
[22:51] <lbm> Did you change the default bandwith for WFM by mistake?
[22:51] <amell> might need to unplug and replug the dongle. i sometimes find the dongle locks up when changing antenna
[22:51] <Boelle_DK> and when seqarching for B64 there was a strong signal next to where it should be
[22:51] kuldeepdhaka (~kuldeepdh@unaffiliated/kuldeepdhaka) left irc: Ping timeout: 250 seconds
[22:51] <amell> that might be a DC signal

[22:53] <amell> screenshot?
[22:54] <Boelle_DK> teamviewer?
[22:54] <amell> the FM should be really obvious on the FFT
[22:54] <amell> if u want, but i havnt used sdr# before. someone else might be better

[22:57] <amell> is that whip attached?

[22:57] <Boelle_DK> no just the one with bare wire on
[22:57] <Boelle_DK> whip does only fit on hab amp
[22:57] <amell> you should have had a stubby aerial with the dongle which should have connectors on it or adaptors to go to the dongle

[23:12] <amell> ok
[23:13] <amell> we got the dongle set up properly now.
[23:13] <amell> AGC was off, changed FFT to higher resolution
[23:13] <amell> if you plug habamp and aerial back in you should see more. let me know when done and can take another look
[23:13] <Boelle_DK> :-D
[23:13] <Boelle_DK> thanks a lot
[23:14] <amell> there should be lots of lines in the waterfall, if its black its borked
[23:14] <Boelle_DK> load of yellow colour...
[23:14] <Boelle_DK> what was the freq again?
[23:15] <amell> if its a fast computer you can increase fft resolution. but 32k points should suffice.
[23:15] <amell> 434.500 ish
[23:15] <amell> have you plugged habamp and aerial in?
[23:16] <amell> back in a few

[23:38] <Boelle_DK> brb... nature call
[23:38] <amell> I was hunting for b-64, cant see it yet
[23:39] <amell> with such a small aerial you may have to wait for the green circle. the aerial is outside isnt it?
[23:39] sp2ipt (~sp2ipt@89-69-164-149.dynamic.chello.pl) joined #highaltitude.
[23:41] <Boelle_DK> back.... nope... its just a ½ wave whip
[23:41] <amell> is it actually outside?
[23:41] <Boelle_DK> nope
[23:41] <amell> you really need it outside.
[23:42] <Boelle_DK> i know... but not doable before i get a win laptop
[23:42] <amell> you might get it when its really, really close if inside, but i didnt have much luck
[23:43] <amell> i wouldnt bother trying until youre in the green circle, even then it will be hard.
[23:43] <amell> outside is essential
[23:43] <Boelle_DK> i know... far from perfect....
[23:44] <Boelle_DK> i'm also building a rig for an yagi....
[23:44] <Boelle_DK> remote controlled pan/tilt thing
[23:44] <Boelle_DK> i just wished there was more power in the raspberry pi for decode
[23:44] <Boelle_DK> but baah
[23:45] <amell> ok. off to bed now. youre going to have a long wait until you have a slim chance of hearing B-64 :)
[23:45] <Boelle_DK> i could put that out in a field and drive home and control it from there
[23:45] <Boelle_DK> yep 2 hours still
[23:45] <OZ1SKY_Brian> really having a hard time decoding it, despide a ok signal.
[23:45] <Boelle_DK> before green circle
[23:46] <amell> just to set expectations, youre unlikely to hear it inside green circle unless aerial is outside.
[23:46] <OZ1SKY_Brian> who else is getting it right now?
[23:46] <amell> put pc next to window and dangle it out the window?
[23:47] <amell> oz1sky: presumably you have a proper aerial outside?
[23:47] <OZ1SKY_Brian> yes a have the ant outside
[23:47] <OZ1SKY_Brian> a-i
[23:47] <lbm> Very weak here. Only audible, not visible on the waterfall.
[23:48] <amell> The human ear is an amazing thing
[23:48] <lbm> Eagerly awaiting delivery of my HABAmp tomorrow :-)
[23:48] <amell> the thing about the habamp is that it amplifies noise too..
[23:48] <amell> need a good set up to make best use of habamp.
[23:50] <lbm> I have a collinear antenna mounted outside connected to an RTL-SDR dongle.

[23:55] <OZ1SKY_Brian> yes but its not 100%

[23:55] <Boelle_DK> nope but not 0 either :-D

[23:59] <amell> boelle_DK: do you have an usb extension cable?
[23:59] <Boelle_DK> had one.... tested it bad today
[23:59] <amell> i have put the usb cable out the window with dongle and aerial dangling off it.
