[00:40] <N2NXZ> Be back soon,had a major launch issue,but it solved itself

[00:41] <N2NXZ> It is up and running in the air over Lake Ontario.I will tell you what happened shortly,it was a near disaster
[00:57] <ulfr> Good that it was only near disaster.
[00:57] <ulfr> and not a disaster.
[01:00] <N2NXZ> Now GPS stopped sending,solid tone...good god
[01:01] <ulfr> The tracker?
[01:01] <ulfr> or the gps it self
[01:01] <ulfr> it's still airborne?
[01:01] <N2NXZ> Yes,just hearing a solid carrier now
[01:02] <ulfr> How nice.
[01:02] <ulfr> I love when that happens.
[01:02] <ulfr> Better yet, when it just stops transmitting.
[01:03] <ulfr> is it something you are planing to recover?
[01:15] <N2NXZ> No
[01:16] <N2NXZ> But would have been nice to track it into its doom...it comes on now and then but signal fading more and more,hoping to grab a piece
[01:16] <ulfr> Of course.
[01:16] <ulfr> But then it's less "important"
[01:16] <ulfr> not that I'm making it any less "important" to you..
[01:17] <ulfr> I've had couple of times scenarios where I've had payloads that need recovery and lost the tracker in mid air

[01:33] <N2NXZ> should have omitted that thing
[01:34] <N2NXZ> It did great excpet for that last object,I even filled for more lift
[01:34] <kd2eat> lol
[01:35] <kd2eat> So how often is it beaconing on 70cm?
[01:36] <N2NXZ> it started at 8pm,run until 3am...resume after 40 hours
[01:37] <N2NXZ> rtty hf beacon,once on the hour for 15 minutes for 3 days
[01:37] <N2NXZ> getting fragmented gps data yet,,,just gimme one more...lol
[01:38] <kd2eat> And the HF won't have GPS data, correct?
[01:38] <N2NXZ> no gps data

[01:46] <aadamson> kd2eat, hey, you, your supposed to be on holiday!!!
[01:46] <kd2eat> Shhh. Don't tell Jules I'm geekin' on balloons!
[01:47] <aadamson> hehe... geeeking on balloons sounds like the *new* drug or something (lol - cuz it's just as addictive)
[01:47] <kd2eat> Just got back from Monhegan Island. Now in Freeport, Maine. Stopped at LL. Bean, because. yanno, because!
[01:47] <kd2eat> And certainly as expensive!
[01:48] <aadamson> ps. 2 100gr (red), 2 100gr (natural) and 2 200gr (natural) are headed my way :)
[01:48] <aadamson> bet you spent more that I did :)
[01:49] <kd2eat> Yea.. well, I build three trackes for every ONE that works! I make up for my weak skillz with tenacity!
[01:50] <N2NXZ> will have to save this data and assemble a few to make one good one...fades out toop much
[01:50] <kd2eat> Not to mention launching balloons where the payload falls off.... *blush*
[01:50] <N2NXZ> Tree is worse
[01:51] <kd2eat> Well, you got it out of the tree! I filled a 600g balloon with 80 cu feet of helium, released it, and the payload fell off at about 5 feet. lol

[01:53] <aadamson> not that 3:1 ratio isn't true anymore... seems you built 4 and have 4 functional :)
[01:53] <aadamson> course I haven't sent you my bill yet :)
[01:54] <kd2eat> Oh, as I said, the next time we're in Atlanta, I don't owe you dinner... I owe you SERIOUS dinner. ;-p
[01:54] <aadamson> hehe... no worries, any update from the oleans gang?

[01:55] <kd2eat> Not lately. Not sure if school started yet. however, there's another school down in Corning (45 minutes from me) that might be interested in doing something. If they have their act together, I'll give them a tracker too, and help out. I like helping the schools.
[01:55] <N2NXZ> Steve...still flying,very weak here,may be heading east now from my QTH
[01:56] <aadamson> N2NXZ, no promises, but if you paste together a string with what looks like valid data, I'll try and post it if you like...
[01:56] <aadamson> I can gen the crc so you dn't have to worry about that
[01:57] <aadamson> just post me the string you think is correct, can be pasted together parts, just needs them all

[01:58] <N2NXZ> Sorry...fat fingers
[01:58] <aadamson> well, that jumble wouldn't work
[01:59] <aadamson> I would expect that if it's actually ascending that it will get stronger
[01:59] <N2NXZ> I know,let me get a better one,I am saving as much as possible
[01:59] <N2NXZ> Must be...drifting too
[02:00] <aadamson> you can check winds/temps aloft here - https://aviationweather.gov/windtemp
[02:00] <aadamson> I wouldn't expect it's up where it's *COLD* yet
[02:00] <N2NXZ> I am lucky it made it this far...what a terrible launch
[02:00] <aadamson> 11c at 9000 feet
[02:01] <N2NXZ> I made a huge mistake tonight...simple as that
[02:02] <kd2eat> It happens. It sounds so easy.. Fill up a balloon and let it go. heh
[02:03] <kd2eat> So, Alan, you're going to try some floaters with the latex balloons?
[02:03] <N2NXZ> My 7th launch,this rates the worse one...i knew better than how I releaed it
[02:04] <N2NXZ> I will be here,going to focus on retrieving at least one string
[02:04] <aadamson> kd2eat, at some point just to say I did :).. .but mostly I got those to do some simple up and down flights to see if I can perfect that release
[02:05] Action: SpacenearUS is back!
[02:06] <kb1tce_> I'll hang in for a while.
[02:06] <aadamson> kd2eat, but the coolest thing is Anthony setup me up for an hourly predictor... can't use it for floats as it won't take a small enough descent rate, but for up and downs this is just too cool - http://predict.habhub.org/hourly/w7qo/
[02:06] <aadamson> it's setup currently for a 100gr up and down I think...

[02:27] <N2NXZ> I still hear the signal faintly,it comes up a bit but not enough to get a fix.I am going to put the 2 last strings into one to see if something can be gained

[02:57] <aadamson> N2NXZ, looks like your VE station is hearing it now
[02:57] <aadamson> VA station that is
[02:58] <aadamson> has been for some time
[02:58] <aadamson> man I hope it makes it... it's barely if at all climbing
[02:58] <N2NXZ> Yup,he is texting me now,I saw the balloon quickly update.Was good to see Bill made it to the radio in time.
[02:59] <aadamson> over the water it might perform different than over land too... I suspect it's probably cooler over the water
[02:59] <aadamson> it actually is now climbing
[02:59] <aadamson> been at around 1m/s for a little while now
[03:00] <aadamson> I'm surprised that you can't hear it actually
[03:02] <aadamson> given doing it all over again, it really would have been good to have figured out what voltage divider you needed and hooked it up to pin A0 so that the volts would show battery volts
[03:02] <aadamson> that and the GPS lock I'm not sure how to read, I guess 1 is you have lock?
[03:03] <aadamson> N2NXZ, you know anyone in Burlington, VT?
[03:03] <aadamson> N2NXZ, btw, what I do is bring up aprs.fi and look for callsigns in the area you'd want help that have email addresses on qrz.com
[03:04] <aadamson> send a bunch of them email and see if they can get their friends to help out... you'll be amazed at the response
[03:04] <aadamson> even if it doesn't have aprs on board
[03:05] <daveake> what happened re the altitude plot?
[03:05] <daveake> -1000m is impressive
[03:06] <aadamson> they say that lake is *deep* - lol
[03:10] <N2NXZ> I went for a smoke...I was stressed for a bit.I have several emails coming in from MAINE
[03:11] <N2NXZ> A club of sorts also emailed,I told them it was still in flight and sent the prediction link lz1dev kindly posted

[03:12] <N2NXZ> I agree on the voltage stuff,I was a bit burned out with this tracker and wanted it gone...:)
[03:15] <ulfr> lol
[03:15] <aadamson> N2NXZ, yeah, I"m kinda the other way about this stuff I want all the data I can get (even through that isn't much you can do about it once you let it go :)...)
[03:16] <N2NXZ> True,but to do it the right way counts,,,still mad at myself for the tree thing.I was so lucky it hooked at the very bottom of the HF antenna
[03:17] <N2NXZ> It was actually 2 trees,fortunatley,the other let it go eventually.I was horrifed at this launch,and it was preventable
[03:18] <daveake> I suggested earlier "sideways into the nearest tree is my guess" - do I win a prize?
[03:18] <N2NXZ> All in all,I think it worked out well,slow lift.At night,this is good,I bet it takes some altitude at sunrise
[03:18] <N2NXZ> You win...but I was set on 1/MS
[03:19] <daveake> Yeah "I was set on" always works out well :/

[03:23] <aadamson> one word.... M2 - :)
[03:23] <aadamson> I should say M-squared
[03:23] <VA3XCD> M2 and $$
[03:23] <VA3XCD> LOL
[03:23] <aadamson> yup
[03:24] <VA3XCD> Jims beam prolly cost $10
[03:24] <VA3XCD> any idea whats wrong with it Jim?
[03:24] <N2NXZ> Actually...nothing...made from CB antenna crap
[03:25] <N2NXZ> No,thinking the wire needs replacing to copper strand rather than magnet wire
[03:25] <aadamson> actually I built this little, oh its probably 7 or 9 element quagi with brass welding rod and pvc, it works *really* good, much better that I would have thought
[03:25] <VA3XCD> nice copy on the balloon right now. no level on the s meter but its a beaut on the waterfall
[03:26] <N2NXZ> good on the coppy.
[03:26] <VA3XCD> dropping in altitude again
[03:26] <N2NXZ> Quagi would have been better ...plenty of brazing rod here
[03:27] <aadamson> roller coaster time...
[03:27] <VA3XCD> predicted landing zone has is dropping on the east side of the Ft Drum range.....safe to say no hikers will be finding it there, if it dosent get shot out of the sky first LOL
[03:27] <N2NXZ> F-16`s
[03:28] <N2NXZ> Will it make the Adirondacks?

[03:29] <N2NXZ> Ok,thanks for the help on this project over the weeks too
[03:29] <N2NXZ> Greatly appreciated
[03:29] <aadamson> no problem... sorry I couldn't do more... all the best.
[03:29] <N2NXZ> you did plenty

[03:30] <VA3XCD> LMAO ok
[03:33] <N2NXZ> My driveway looks like a disaster zone
[03:33] <N2NXZ> What started out to be the perfect launch...chaos
[03:34] <N2NXZ> Never climbed a tree that high so fast in my life :)
[03:34] <VA3XCD> what happened?
[03:34] <VA3XCD> Ah....say no more
[03:34] <VA3XCD> LOL
[03:35] <N2NXZ> I had it planned perfectly,then the fatal mistake...letting it go too soon rather than taking a few steps back.Hit the power line that runs into the house with the parachute
[03:35] <VA3XCD> why is the predicted burst so close?
[03:35] <N2NXZ> Someomne said "the wire"...my brain thought they meant the antenna'
[03:36] <N2NXZ> Maybe altitude ?
[03:37] <VA3XCD> its only at 15000' i would have expected it to go higher than that
[03:37] <VA3XCD> seesm to have settled in at 14980
[03:39] <N2NXZ> Well,my plan was to avoid premature burst,,,the usual.So went with the lowest possible lift this time.
[03:40] <N2NXZ> It is not falling to the ground at least,or rising too high either...I like it that way
[03:40] <VA3XCD> did you use the two balloon setup?
[03:40] <N2NXZ> They say daytime balloons lift higher,so maybe it will
[03:40] <N2NXZ> Yes I did
[03:40] <VA3XCD> still dropping....albeit slowly
[03:41] <N2NXZ> The chute was a last minute build for 2 bucks from walmart.Came out great
[03:41] <N2NXZ> 3lb payload
[03:42] <N2NXZ> Had a small audience,wish I were them watching someone else climb a tree
[03:42] <N2NXZ> Bet I looked like a moron...lol
[03:43] <N2NXZ> If only someone had the video cam running...great stuff
[03:43] <VA3XCD> you got done what you needed to get done. Who cares what you looked like :)
[03:43] <VA3XCD> Does this DL-FLDIGI log packets?
[03:44] <VA3XCD> the frequency seems pretty stable Jim
[03:45] <N2NXZ> I thought so too,expected massive drifting,probably becasue it is not very high?
[03:46] <VA3XCD> I dont know.
[03:46] <N2NXZ> A tree removal service would have hired me on the spot though
[03:46] <VA3XCD> does the beacon have a temp readout?
[03:47] <N2NXZ> Nothing but a simple string with ID

[03:48] <N2NXZ> It was dark by the time the second tree let it go,not sure if it pulled the lower dipole section out yet
[03:48] <N2NXZ> Going to check the woods in the morning
[03:48] <N2NXZ> One damn branch snagged it twice
[03:49] <N2NXZ> I can laugh now,but almost cried then...ha ha ha
[03:50] <VA3XCD> :)
[03:51] <VA3XCD> was trying to see what temp its at. Temp at Ft Drum is 81 according to latest METAR. Standard lapse rate with dictate about 50 degrees at 15000 ft
[03:51] <VA3XCD> would dictate
[03:52] <VA3XCD> so its not that cold up there
[03:52] <VA3XCD> thats just an estimate though
[03:53] <N2NXZ> Expected higher altitudes by now,that means slower travel.Now my timing is way off.
[03:53] <N2NXZ> Tracking shuts down at 3am
[03:54] <VA3XCD> does this program log the packets is receives Jim?
[03:55] <N2NXZ> It needs to go a bit faster if anyone can copy it by then
[03:55] <N2NXZ> No
[03:55] <N2NXZ> I was lucky to get it doing what it is now...ha ha ,I am a terrible builder
[03:56] <VA3XCD> you cant be that bad. It works :)
[03:56] <N2NXZ> But had fun doing it
[03:56] <VA3XCD> thats the important thing
[03:56] <N2NXZ> I guess,glad it made it where it is.Not too bad considering
[03:57] <N2NXZ> Glad you copied it...when I saw the wind direction,knew it was coming your way or close
[03:57] <MLow> i am in the process of writting a program probably useless to you guys, for the most part
[03:58] <MLow> but an aprs tracking program for hibals
[03:58] <N2NXZ> How does this work?
[03:59] <MLow> N2NXZ: me?
[03:59] <N2NXZ> yes
[03:59] <MLow> oh uh, it uses a soundcard modem, tcip packets with the aprs data
[04:00] <MLow> and a UI frontend to display data
[04:00] <MLow> so, say your just reporting location, it displays that on a map
[04:00] <MLow> with the ability to cache map tiles from OSM(open street maps)
[04:01] <MLow> mobile internet is spotty here
[04:02] <VA3XCD> That sounds like a neat little arrangement
[04:02] <MLow> i plan on adding telemetry display, graphing all the telemetry data
[04:03] <VA3XCD> signal dropped off a little now.
[04:03] <MLow> i have the map bit working, but im trying to figure out a good way to display a path
[04:04] <VA3XCD> its rx pretty damn good considering its listening on a discone up about 15 feet that has about 70 feet of 15 yr old RG-213 connecting it to the radio
[04:04] <N2NXZ> Where are you located Mlow?
[04:04] <N2NXZ> Very good for that...should have put my discone on the roof too.
[04:05] <VA3XCD> I was not considering putting up a UHF beam but this has me reconsidering that....
[04:05] <MLow> usa, tx
[04:05] <VA3XCD> definitely need to change out that crap feedline for some hardline though
[04:05] <MLow> hardline?
[04:06] <N2NXZ> You are receiving way better than me,the antenna was a huge fail

[04:10] <MLow> whats the freq?
[04:10] <VA3XCD> in fact I no longer see ...wait.....its barely there
[04:10] <N2NXZ> 10.135 USB rtty
[04:10] <N2NXZ> Hey,you at least grabbed enough to get an idea of whaere it might be by 3am
[04:11] <VA3XCD> and its come back up again
[04:11] <N2NXZ> KB1TCE is still listening for it,but still too far away yet
[04:12] <MLow> why so low?
[04:12] <N2NXZ> altitude?
[04:13] <MLow> yea
[04:13] <N2NXZ> My bad idea of less lift :)
[04:13] <MLow> not intended to be a float?
[04:14] <N2NXZ> But maybe not,I was told night time balloons drop quite a bit,so used low necklift so in the sun,it would not burst
[04:14] <N2NXZ> Yes,intended for float
[04:15] <N2NXZ> Maybe it will climb later...never know now
[04:15] <MLow> hm i dont know too much about floats, but will it continue higher?
[04:16] <VA3XCD> still hearing it.....
[04:16] <VA3XCD> not getting any reliable decodes though
[04:17] <N2NXZ> Maybe you will grab one more,but chances are slim.Sometimes it almost gets a full string..then one bad charater ruins it
[04:17] <VA3XCD> I suspect that I have gotten the last packet from it
[04:17] <N2NXZ> I hope it climbs higher than this
[04:17] <VA3XCD> wish I had a preamp
[04:18] <VA3XCD> or a higher gain antenna
[04:18] <N2NXZ> Well,you may have been the last anyone heard of this one Bill
[04:18] <N2NXZ> All we have now is 30m...and that will be luck and good band propagation
[04:20] <N2NXZ> Bill,do not kill yourself if it is too weak,you got plenty.
[04:20] <N2NXZ> Needed more ground stations nearby
[04:20] <MLow> or more altitide i guess
[04:20] <N2NXZ> I received an email and it was heard,but they were not using the tracking prgram
[04:21] <VA3XCD> I dont hear bubkis on 30M
[04:21] <N2NXZ> Yes,it would have helped...oh well.Maybe it will be alive in 40 hours where trackers are around
[04:22] <N2NXZ> Static
[04:22] <VA3XCD> ?help
[04:22] <N2NXZ> I am going to calculat distance covered so far and see where it will be in 60 hours after launch
[04:23] <VA3XCD> LOL
[04:23] <VA3XCD> that worked well
[04:23] <VA3XCD> wrong key
[04:23] <N2NXZ> altitude would have helped

[04:23] <N2NXZ> I cant type anything either
[04:24] <VA3XCD> Im going to rack it for now but Ill leave the radio on in case something happens
[04:25] <VA3XCD> its still hanging in there
[04:25] <N2NXZ> LOL
[04:25] <VA3XCD> but the S/N is too low
[04:26] <N2NXZ> Ok,I know how that sounds,no chance for decode now.Not sure if the others will hear it before it shuts down?
[04:26] <VA3XCD> Glad I was able to snag the balloon though. Just wish I were better equipped for it here
[04:26] <N2NXZ> Me 2
[04:26] <VA3XCD> Ill talk to you tomorrow Jim

[21:26] <Rebounder> N2NXZ: thought of any long range tracking via hf?
[21:27] <N2NXZ> This one has HF
[21:27] <N2NXZ> 10.135 MHZ
[21:29] <N2NXZ> Not sure if it made it or not,but seems it may have.If so,@ 45 mph,where will it be by 7pm my time tomorrow?That is when the tracker turns back on
[21:30] <N2NXZ> Primitive payload,but my pockets are not very deep...low tech to say the least on this thing
[21:31] <N2NXZ> RTTY beacon on HF runs on the hour for 15 minutes,been listening each time.
[21:36] <N2NXZ> Rebounder..where are you located?
