[09:22] <acidtech> what size is better?
[09:22] <jcoxon> acidtech, depends on what you want to do
[09:22] <jcoxon> do you want long duration flights or high altitude flights?
[09:22] <UpuWork> pong jcoxon
[09:22] <jcoxon> also how big is your payload
[09:23] <jcoxon> UpuWork, will we have openoffice avaliable on Sat

[09:24] <jcoxon> and can in theory be floated for about 2 days (but its hard to get right)
[09:24] <jcoxon> most of the time is just an up/down flight
[09:26] <fsphil> floats are difficult as the odds of recovery is basically near zero
[09:26] madmax (532d3302@gateway/web/freenode/ip. joined #highaltitude.
[09:27] <fsphil> which limits what people would want to fly on them
[09:27] <acidtech> what about quantity of gas in foil baloons?
[09:28] <acidtech> if i will fill it full will it explode on high altitude?
[09:28] <jcoxon> yeah, the balance to get them to float is hard to achieve
[09:30] <SpeedEvil> Balloons rise because the density of the balloon + payload is lower than the density of the surrounding air, so there is a net lift force.
[09:31] <SpeedEvil> The density of the atmosphere falls off - so if your balloon can contain the natural expansion of the lift gas - your balloon hovers at one level.

[12:08] <amell> Upuwork: how do you track both on the same FCD?
[12:08] <UpuWork> the original PCF works as a microphone so you can run 2 instances of SDRSharp
[12:09] <UpuWork> FCD
[12:09] <UpuWork> second one controls the frequency
[12:09] <amell> ok. i dont think you can do that on mac gqrx etc.
[12:09] <UpuWork> as long as the transmissions are with 90khz of each otehr
[12:09] <UpuWork> typing
[12:09] <gonzo__> or 190khz if using an fdc p+
[12:10] <amell> do we think that the breakaway is a camera payload? the temp cam1/cam2 is intriguing.
[12:11] <MaXimaN> Upu: PCF?
[12:12] <amell> FCD
[12:13] <UpuWork> keyboard to brain interface issue
[12:13] <MaXimaN> But FCDP+ does not?

[12:14] <amell> the start of the string is consistently wrong. i dont know why, its always that.
[12:15] <myier> we'll probably be launching tuesday, in our 3 days window. Should I ask for approval of the payload (and create the document) now or will there be people available monday or sunday to do it?
[12:15] <amell> does the java decoder app work for others with HL1?
[12:15] <myier> because the payload is not yet finished, I'm not sure what will be the transmitted packet format yet
[12:16] <amell> fast ascent rate!

[12:24] <Maxell> however not as strong as yesterday
[12:24] <mattbrejza> but i think it needs a correct checksum to start displaying the 8n1
[12:24] <amell> strange as it decodes fine in dl-fldigi

[13:50] <Geoff-G8DHE-Tab> Grow the aerial, start pole, leave a month, add aerial, leave, add more aerials
[13:50] <mfa298> if it's only just over the permitted size I'd probably just whack it up and claim ignorance if anyone complains. I wouldn't be suprised if the more likely complaint is that your antenna is causing interference in which case just point out that it's only for receiving so won't be interferring with East Enders
[13:51] <MaXimaN> mfa: True enough. I'll look into how much it would cost to get it put up there. I have no intention of doing a "Rod Hull"
[13:52] <MaXimaN> HL1 buzzing Oliver Cromwell's house, heh
[13:52] <Maxell> Geoff-G8DHE-Tab: stealth antenna placment
[13:52] <Geoff-G8DHE-Tab> Worked for me, twice now!
[13:53] <mfa298> Geoff-G8DHE-Tab's suggestion is also good. Potentially with the added step add aerial (but don't connect coax) wait 1 month, add coax. Anyone complaining about interferrence will probably do it as soon as the antenna goes up at which point just politly point out it's not connected to anything so their interferrence is probably due to another source.

[14:17] <adamgreig> wow
[14:17] <adamgreig> that's actually probably not bad
[14:17] <adamgreig> you can make your own really easily though
[14:17] <adamgreig> which is what almost everyone does

[15:02] <Geoff-G8DHE-M> RTL2832U/with the E4000 by preference
[15:02] <Geoff-G8DHE-M> but the R820T is nearly as good a bit poor on stability
[15:03] <MaXimaN> arjun_12: It says "DVB-T + DAB + FM" on the side of it. That's as good as it gets :)

[15:03] <Geoff-G8DHE-M> Means nothing as the normal mode is bypassed
[15:03] <MaXimaN> arjun_12: Yeah, bascially that and anything like it
[15:04] <Geoff-G8DHE-M> That one is the R820T the E4000 are very difficult to locate now
[15:04] <MaXimaN> Geoff-G8DHE: It's an rtl r820t inside, that must I know.
[15:04] <MaXimaN> much*
[15:05] <MaXimaN> I'd avoid something like this though: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/DVB-T-DAB-RTL2832U-R820T-25MHz-1700MHz-SDR-E4000-Upgrade-Verion-Carabiner-S-/121400641576?pt=UK_Computing_Video_Capture_TV_Tuner_Cards&hash=item1c440ac828
[15:05] <MaXimaN> Almost certainly not an E4000

[15:06] <Geoff-G8DHE-M> Lots of people waiting for Airspy to appear as well
[15:06] <MaXimaN> arjun_12: But to receive anything you'll need a decent antenna, good quality coax, and have it mounted in the highest possible location - preferable outside
[15:07] <arjun_12> Which ones are bang for your buck
[15:08] <arjun_12> MaXimaN which one do you use

[17:21] <adamgreig> don't get that many questions or mistakes really
[17:21] <adamgreig> compared to the number of good flight docs
[17:23] <mattbrejza> oh yea, forogt about that :P
[17:27] <mfa298> maybe it just needs a simpler start guide on the wiki along the lines of "So you want to launch a balloon" that has a small amount of text and links off to the more detailed pages, I'm thinking along the lines of a few paragraphs to introduce the types of tracking, legalities, putting together a tracker, testing said tracker, creating payload doc, creating flight doc, launching, recovering)
[17:27] <mfa298> the detail for most of that exists, the challenge generally seems to be finding it hence the idea of a reasonably short page with links to everything
[17:28] <adamgreig> basically add the payload and flight doc bits to the current getting started guide
[17:31] <mfa298> that could make for a good starting point although it might be worth moving some of those bits off to their own pages. I was thinking something about 1/3 the length of that page and add links to pages that briefly cover spot / gsm etc.
[17:32] <adamgreig> good idea... well volunteered :P
[17:33] <mfa298> I think I already had that on the bottom of the ever growing list of things to do.
[17:35] <mfa298> I think a lot of the wiki pages suffer from a problem of being too long which can put people off and may also make finding things harder.

[17:53] <mfa298> don't use RF TV Aerial lead. Most of it is really bad
[17:54] <mfa298> I wouldn't trust that dongle to work as it doesn't say what chipset it uses
[17:55] <Upu> ping DL7AD
[17:56] <mfa298> your TV socket probably won't work too well for balloons either. The antenna may not be designed for the right band, TV antennas are directional so would need to point at the balloon, TV antennas are usually horizontally polarised and balloons are vertical, also see previous note about TV aerial leads. All of which means you've got a pretty poor chance of actually getting a signal like that

[18:09] <arjun_12> thx
[18:09] <mfa298> then use some decent coax, RG58 is ok for short runs (probably under 10m), rg213/ W103/ aircell are better and you really want them if you need more than 10m of it.
[18:10] ibanezmatt13_ (~ibanezmat@host86-160-11-172.range86-160.btcentralplus.com) joined #highaltitude.
[18:11] <mfa298> for coax all cable has losses, W103/aircell have a lower loss than RG213, which has a lower loss than RG58 which has a lower loss than that TV antenna cable. Basicly you want the lowest loss you can afford (3dB of loss means half the signal the antenna collects is lost in the cable before it even get's to the receiver)
[18:11] <mfa298> getting the antenna up high and outside means its able to pick up more signal.
[18:12] <mfa298> the general aim is to get as much signal to the receiver as possible.

[20:10] <lz1dev> LeoBodnar: you didn't expect them to go that long did ? :)
[20:12] <SpeedEvil> Anotehr 500km or so of radio coverage at least ideally
[20:12] <SpeedEvil> lz1dev: Well, the logs are 5 days.

[20:17] <SpeedEvil> KL7L is shown as a reciever about where I recall the APRS station to be.
[20:18] <SpeedEvil> (on http://habitat.habhub.org/mobile-tracker/) Is this some sort of magical station info importer to show where on the map it is
[20:18] <LeoBodnar> no lz1dev i didn't :D
[20:18] <SpeedEvil> or is it just a coincidence that there is someone into UKHAS there
[20:19] <lz1dev> LeoBodnar: if i remember the hysplit correctly, it must have made loop around the north pole
[20:19] <lz1dev> or at least very close to it
[20:19] <SpeedEvil> lz1dev: Well - hysplit can also do backwards prediction IIRC
[20:19] <lz1dev> yep
[20:19] <LeoBodnar> we can marry the two predictions
[20:19] <Lunar_Lander> xD
[20:19] <lz1dev> i dont have them
[20:19] <lz1dev> thats the problem
[20:19] <lz1dev> but i've fixed it yesterday, all hysplit are cached
[20:20] <LeoBodnar> current backlog position is now 10 days ago so we have a good chance
[20:20] <SpeedEvil> LeoBodnar: Another congratulation - All three balloons have exceeded 40000km ground-track.
[20:20] <Lunar_Lander> yay!
[20:20] <LeoBodnar> oh, ta
[20:20] <LeoBodnar> how do you calculate that?

[20:24] <Laurenceb> B-64 has 10 day backlog?
[20:24] <DL7AD> yes
[20:24] <SpeedEvil> lz1dev: random feature comment - highlighting on the hysplit the current time dots would benice.
[20:24] <Laurenceb> oh cool
[20:24] <SpeedEvil> (for balloons out of contact only of course)
[20:25] <lz1dev> SpeedEvil: its not possible
[20:25] <SpeedEvil> lz1dev: k
[20:25] <SpeedEvil> Haven't looked at the code :)
[20:25] <lz1dev> im too lazy to make a parser for hysplit txt files
[20:25] <SpeedEvil> Fair enough.
[20:25] <lz1dev> its a kml layer
[20:25] <SpeedEvil> I'd assumed that was what you were doing.
[20:25] <SpeedEvil> Oh- I dddn't know they did that
[20:25] <lz1dev> basically google server renders an overlay, and gives you the tiles
[20:26] <lz1dev> which is great for performance :)
[20:26] <SpeedEvil> LeoBodnar: What happened to 65? Was it a launch error - I forget
[20:27] <Geoff-G8DHE> lz1dev, What time do the hysplit's get updated?
[20:27] <lz1dev> every 6 hours
[20:27] <LeoBodnar> it was launched together with B-64 and did not deploy properly, landed near M25 south
[20:27] <lz1dev> so in about 2.5 hours
[20:28] <lz1dev> is the next one
[20:28] <Geoff-G8DHE> 00/06/12/18 then ?
[20:28] <SpeedEvil> LeoBodnar: ah
[20:28] <lz1dev> its 22/4/10/14
[20:28] <lz1dev> at 50th minute
[20:28] <lz1dev> just as the forcast cycle finishes
[20:29] <Geoff-G8DHE> right ok
