[02:11] <lz1dev> some people have made their on little programs to upload the position
[02:11] <lz1dev> their own*
[02:17] <kf7fer> Ok so I just have to do the flight document then?
[02:17] <kf7fer> sorry I'm a bit distracted
[02:17] <kf7fer> or was
[02:18] <kf7fer> so this flight I want to get listed is for 9/13 (or 9/14) depending up on rain; do we simply submit the initial flight and then have it removed and re-submit if needed?
[02:19] <lz1dev> you don't need a doc
[02:19] <kf7fer> just need to notify someone like you?
[02:19] <lz1dev> yeh, before the flight if possible
[02:19] <lz1dev> there are few people who can set it up
[02:20] <kf7fer> how soon?
[02:22] <lz1dev> before the flight
[02:22] <lz1dev> say an hour
[02:22] <lz1dev> ofc, assuming its not during the nightin the UK
[02:23] <lz1dev> in which case you might want to do it even earlier :)
[02:23] <kf7fer> hmmm... I'll have to check on that to be honest ;-)
[02:23] <kf7fer> but that would be perfect... we'd know if the flight was a go due to weather then
[02:28] <kf7fer> thanks!

[07:10] <wonxega> Shouldn't the sky have been black at 27 km?
[07:11] <wonxega> I mean, comparing it to videos by others at such altitudes I'm not really impressed with the result... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iZw_LySNNzM

[07:24] <wonxega> bursted after 83 minutes from launch\
[07:24] <wonxega> launch altitude: 1000 m
[07:25] <wonxega> I don't know the exact ascent rate, just what I got from the calculator on habhub.org
[07:26] <SpacenearUS> New vehicle on the map: 03SP9RQA - 12http://habhub.org/mt/?focus=SP9RQA

[07:29] <Upu> did you have no tracker on it ?
[07:31] <Upu> estimated burst is about 28km
[07:31] <Upu> estimate ascent rate 5,29m/s
[07:31] <Upu> so if you know the time the image was taken...

[07:34] <wonxega> OK.
[07:35] <wonxega> Do you think its possible it bursted at much lower altitudes for some reason (like bad helium mix)?
[07:35] <Upu> looks to be above 21km
[07:35] <Upu> looks consistant with the altitude its very hard to judge though
[07:36] <wonxega> sure
[07:36] <wonxega> maybe i just set up the camera at bad angle

[07:37] <wonxega> or the sun in the horizon had an effect
[07:39] <Upu> 83 mins to burst is consistant with 5.2m/s
[07:39] <Upu> afk
[07:43] <wonxega> yeah, just thinking maybe Im missing something
[07:44] <wonxega> so anyone launched during evening? when sun is in the horizon? Have you noticed that making the sky gradient appear more bright?
[07:46] <wonxega> also forgot to say it landed 30 km more west than predicted. The balloon didnt burst very well and it fell on the parachute but I think that would have the opposite effect

[10:16] <simium> Lunar_Lander: yes, the GPS updated latitude and longitude flawlessly, but during flight it did not update the altitude... on landing site it was 0.0

[10:17] <joeman2> do you have air pressure measurements?

[15:35] <Upu> afternoon vincentgire
[15:35] <vincentgire> I need some advice on dl-fldigi
[15:35] <Upu> ask away
[15:36] <vincentgire> thanks ! I was parsing the fldigi logs to read the RTTY frequency and I can not find these logs anymore in dl-fldigi
[15:36] <Herman-PB0AHX> i hope he is landing near delfzijl than can 2 people looking for him
[15:36] <Upu> I don't think they are stored localled vincentgire
[15:36] <Upu> was it from a balloon ?
[15:38] <jarod> $$SPAVA,877,15:36:58,53.36458,4.28016,5489,7,4129,1409,2,04*EAB2 latest green :O

[15:39] <vincentgire> I found the RTTY output in /talk/textout.txt but frequency is not there anymore (even with the "Log RTTY frequency" option ON)
[15:39] <Maxell> jarod: I still wonder how you have so much trouble receiving the HABs
[15:41] <jarod> a gap in the discone?

[15:42] <jarod> but because of my "troubles" some programs get better and better :P
[15:43] <jarod> on the dvb-t antenna i get nothing, hehehe
[15:44] <Maxell> jarod: what kind of coax?
[15:44] <jarod> you dont wanan know :P
[15:44] <vincentgire> Upu : sorry, I was not clear. No balloon yet. I am just playing offline, preparing for my first HAB launch. I am trying to control GQRX frequency from dl-flgidi
[15:44] <Upu> ah ok sorry in that case I don't know
[15:44] <jarod> rg58
[15:44] <Upu> it will be the same as fldigi
[15:44] <Maxell> jarod: wut wut wuttttt
[15:46] <Geoff-G8DHE-Lap> someone else was asking about controlling GQRX it didn't look like it was possible as GQRX doesn't implement any of the standard interfaces.
[15:46] <jarod> Maxell discone was installed for fm band :)
[15:46] <Geoff-G8DHE-Lap> SDR-Radio supports CATRig and works well up to 6 VFO's if necessary (and fast enougth machine!)
[15:46] <vincentgire> Upu : In fldigi, you have a File -> Text Capture -> Log all RX/TX test which logs RTTY reception + RTTY frequency. But it is gone in dl-fldigi. Geoff-G8DHE-Lap : you can control easily control GQRX with telnet
[15:47] <Upu> ah ok vincentgire
[15:47] <Upu> you'd need to speak to one of the dl-fldigi devs
[15:48] <vincentgire> Upu : ok. I will. I am doing this because I am seing a lot of drift with a HopeRFM69 module. Seems to be usual according to the wiki.
[15:48] <Upu> yeah thats usual
[15:48] <Upu> no TCXO
[15:49] <vincentgire> But I can still manage to do a first (short) flight with it, right ?
[15:49] <Maxell> jarod: stick an X-30 on the roof
[15:50] <Maxell> Aircell 7 coax.
[15:50] <Maxell> Or for HABs you could do a small yagi on mount on the desk :P
[15:50] <Upu> yes vincentgire should work ok
[15:50] <amell> oh i thought spava was a floater.
[15:50] <Upu> NTX2B may be a better option

[15:52] <vincentgire> Upu : thanks. Also, I have no license so no callsign (receiving with SDR). Should I invent one to setup dl-fldigi to connect to the hab server ?

[15:53] <Upu> not transmitting on amateur bands, your payload is transmitting but on an ISM frequency

[16:46] <mfa298> and I'm not sure it has such good filters
[16:47] <mattbrejza> airspy is still zero-IF, 8bit IQ samples?
[16:47] <mattbrejza> just 10MHz?
[16:47] <jarod> http://airspy.com/
[16:48] <mattbrejza> oh perhaps not then
[16:48] <fsphil> still no pricing?
[16:48] <mattbrejza> its IIP3 and 12bit adc should help
[16:48] <jarod> rtlsdr.com says 100-200 dollar, so we wait :P
[16:49] <mattbrejza> also samples at a IF
[16:49] <mattbrejza> so everything i assumed was wrong
[16:49] <mattbrejza> so yea should be a good deal better than the dongles
[16:49] <mattbrejza> cant remember fcd++ figures though

[16:57] <maxmed> was quite an old balloon
[16:57] <Upu> what was the ascent rate ?
[16:58] <maxmed> meant to be 5m/s but most the time was less that 3m/s and it burst at somehting like 16km from memory
[16:59] <Upu> sounds all a bit odd what was the intended flight path

[17:04] <daveake> Do you know the average ascent rate?
[17:06] <maxmed> no, I don't know. around 2.5m/s maybe but it jumped around a lot as the gps altitude kept sticking
[17:06] <daveake> That's very slow if true. Did Steve see it launch? If so did he think he looked slow?
[17:06] <arjun_> Woah, looking at habitat it has gone a far way out to sea
[17:07] <arjun_> maxmed : Does it have APRS
[17:07] <maxmed> I don't know what happened when the lat/lon went to 0,0 ! very strange, can't think when that would happen unless it is something to do with the gps itself

[17:08] <maxmed> no aprs, the altitude had always stuck a quite a bit and never seemed very accurate (could change by about a 100m without moving and could go up 100m without changing) on the way up it stayed at 50m for ages then 600m for ages etc.
[17:09] <maxmed> no temp- that was planned for launch 2!

[17:09] <maxmed> what do you mean?
[17:10] <arjun_> Did you do a freezer test/

[17:11] <Scott85> hi
[17:11] <arjun_> Hello
[17:11] <maxmed> never actually stuck it in the freezer though the camera used to get very hot and it was reasonably well insulated so shouldn't have been a problem really (he hopes!)
[17:11] <daveake> It went wrong straightaway; it wasn't the cold
[17:12] <Scott85> is it just me or is the Arduino programming language really limited?

[17:14] <arjun_> Apparently it went all the way to Africa in a completely straight line and back in a completely straight line!

[17:16] <maxmed> are the datastrings themselves saved anywhere?
[17:16] <arjun_> Which website did you buy it from as some websites stock the 300mah and market it as the 450mah
[17:16] <maxmed> other than on the onboard sd card!
[17:17] <arjun_> Are you using an arduino
[17:17] <maxmed> battery was bought from giantshark for another project, in testing for 5h it didn't even seem to touch it, was still well above nominal voltage

[19:03] <maxmed> Hi, for my payload rebuild I'm thinking of using just the atmega328P rather than an arduino mini but have heard it doesn't have very accurate timing without an external clock, do you think I need an external clock or is the timing not that critical?
[19:03] <Upu> hmm ?
[19:03] <Upu> it has a crystal on it
[19:03] <Upu> runs @ 16Mhz
[19:03] <Upu> they are fine
[19:03] <Upu> !hysplit run BECKSTEM
[19:03] <SpacenearUS> 03Upu: You job has been added to the queue. Check in a few minutes
[19:05] <maxmed> So this one would be suitable: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/like/251499786288?limghlpsr=true&hlpv=2&ops=true&viphx=1&hlpht=true&lpid=108&device=m&adtype=pla&crdt=0&ff3=1&ff11=ICEP3.0.0&ff12=67&ff13=80&ff14=108&ff19=0 ?
[19:05] <Upu> oh you're making your own board ?
[19:06] <Upu> this I would strongly recommend
[19:07] <maxmed> Thinking about it, need to have a word with the new electronics technician at school, need to work out if its worth it.
[19:07] <Upu> well it means you can do what you want
[19:07] <Upu> and what you want to do is run it at 3V
[19:07] <Upu> which means 8Mhz
[19:08] <mfa298> if you're making your own board then it's well worth having a crystal on it. If you use the onboard oscilator it can drift with temperature so may stop talking to the gps
[19:08] <Upu> heck you could run it at 1.8V if you want (4Mhz)
[19:08] <Upu> but yes to concur with mfa298 put a crystal on it
[19:08] <Upu> you can still program it via the Arduino enviroment
[19:09] <mfa298> you can get away with no crystal initially but not wise to fly with no crystal. You may also need a proper programmer so you can set the fuses for the crystal.
[19:09] <Upu> yup
[19:09] <mfa298> if you get the latest avrdude source it's possible to use a Pi as the programmer (as I've just started doing for some work stuff)
[19:09] <Upu> https://www.olimex.com/Products/AVR/Programmers/AVR-ISP500/
[19:10] <Upu> all "Arduino" is is a small piece of code on the AVR chip that lets you program it via serial rather than the ICSP header
[19:11] <mfa298> and a load of wrapper functions so you don't need to worry about what the registers are called
[19:11] <Upu> and TINYGPS !

[19:13] <maxmed> The plan was to just program it with the UNO board but I have got a PI kicking about so its a possibility, but sounds like its getting a bit complicated. Upu- are you saying don't use TinyGPS?
[19:13] <MaXimaN> Man, I just cannot get this Moonraker 7 elem yagi to work at all
[19:14] <mfa298> I did start trying to write some pure AVR code to talk SPI and UART and found it's not all that bad (although a decent knowledge of C helps)
[19:14] <Upu> yeah I wouldn't
[19:14] <mfa298> yep you should be able to use the Uno board as an ISP as well for setting fuses etc.
[19:15] <maxmed> What's wrong with it? I was using it on my flight today and seemed to do the job unless that was the cause of my problems?
[19:15] <Upu> it may have been the thing is you didn't write it so you'll never know
[19:15] <mfa298> With the Uno board you can probably get the plain chips cheaper from the likes of CPC and put the bootloader on your self (if you need it)
[19:15] <Upu> thats the problem
[19:15] <Upu> its ok but you don't know what its doing and what effect its having on your code

[20:35] <amell> maxmed: did you test gps with the camera on and recording? these devices often generate rf interference - example here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RXQM_I9NADM

[20:37] <maxmed> Yeah I had tested it, maybe not well enough! Saying yesterday during testing I found the gps struggled to get a lock when in the payload container with the camera, up until then I think I had always already got a GPS fix before putting it in with the camera, that's what I did today though

[20:40] <maxmed> Are there any cheaper alternatives to the radiometrix? I know its not that expensive but thinking about also making a cheap expiremental tracker which doesn't have a GPS but an accelerometer
[20:42] <mfa298> maxmed: there are various other radios you can use although it depends on what effort you want to go it. things like the rfm22b and rfm69 can do rtty (but domino/thor etc may not be possible)
[20:43] <mfa298> or you can go for the raw SI chips but that requires more pcb design and coding to get working

[20:57] <MaXimaN> I can hear BECKSTEM now, but not clear enough to decode yet
[20:59] <amell> wow.
[20:59] <amell> i was suspicious - took the habamp off. now beckstem is very loud and clear
[21:00] <amell> decoding fine.
[21:00] <mikestir_M0MKS> hadn't you already tried taking the habamp off?
[21:00] <amell> not today, no.
[21:00] <amell> ffs. whats with this habamp?
[21:01] <amell> its perfect greens now.
[21:01] <mikestir_M0MKS> have you got the jumpers set right for the power supply you're using?
[21:01] <amell> yes i have
[21:02] <amell> now i have one strong line down the waterfall. before, i had several weak lines.
[21:02] <Geoff-G8DHE> and the gain set right on the dongle
[21:02] <mikestir_M0MKS> I mean it seems to me that if you have it in the right way around and it's powered properly then it should be working, unless you have some monster signal nearby that's totally saturating it or something
[21:03] <amell> when i turn it on, i see a lot of lines drifting across slowly (diagonal waterfall)
[21:03] <amell> takes a few minutes to settle down.
[21:03] <mikestir_M0MKS> sounds like it's hooting
[21:04] <amell> what does that mean, other than in the owl context
[21:04] <mikestir_M0MKS> oscillating
[21:04] <mikestir_M0MKS> which might happen if the output was coupling back to the input in some way
[21:04] <Geoff-G8DHE> your using a dongle right ? what gain setting have you got on it ?
[21:04] <mikestir_M0MKS> I wouldn't have thought it was high enough gain for that to be an issue though
[21:05] <amell> hmm. i might open it up and check jumpers. it was default settings.
[21:05] <Geoff-G8DHE> remember dongles overload very easily!

[22:29] <amell> nice. now i just need to find a 20x2 case
[22:32] <MaXimaN> amell: I blame a long length of RG58

[22:32] <amell> how long?
[22:32] <MaXimaN> I have just been testing a ZL special and have come to the conclusion that the "special" is akin to "special school"
[22:33] <MaXimaN> amell: About 10 to 11 metres or so
[22:33] <amell> im listening through 30m of aircell7

[22:34] <amell> same here.
[22:34] <amell> I cant see that 10m of rg58 would have that much impact?

[22:48] <daveake> not yet
[22:48] <daveake> will be when it's more complete (e.g. settable frequency)
[22:48] <amell> think ill make one.
[22:48] <mattbrejza> put a enc28j60 on it :)
[22:48] <daveake> More useful (if you're thinking of helping with LoRa flights) to make a gateway instead
[22:49] <mattbrejza> and then cry as you try to get the ethernet stack to work
[22:49] <daveake> sounds like a great idea :/
[22:49] <amell> daveake: except its not portable.
[22:50] <daveake> Pi in a box
[22:50] <daveake> Portable enough

[22:52] <amell> i could wifi it&
[22:53] <daveake> I bought a cheap bluetooth module a few days ago, with the intention to link this Arduino to a phone for mapping
[22:53] <MaXimaN> The powered USB extension cable I bought doesn't deliver enough power to the FCDP+ it seems
[22:53] <amell> but not something you;d want to carry in a cornfield in the pouring rain.
[22:53] <daveake> ^ hub
[22:53] <joeman2> mapping in our hand?
[22:53] <mattbrejza> bluebooth would be neatest
[22:54] <mattbrejza> too many cables
[22:54] <amell> wifi easier. use the tethering on the phone
[22:54] <mattbrejza> sounds horrible
[22:54] <daveake> Not easier than bluetooth it isn't
[22:54] <joeman2> I got a beagle bone black tethered to my iphone

[23:03] <Maxell> To trade for speed?
[23:04] <Maxell> wait, uh, less cpu?
[23:04] <craag_philcrump> Just a worse algorithm afaik

[23:07] <Flerb> craag_philcrump: it was a bit off putting to be honest
[23:07] <Flerb> Seems remarkably complex
[23:07] <Maxell> pd3t: just before the film ended he/she was watching I anncounced that I want to resolve the interferince issue.
[23:07] <Maxell> And to come meet me.
[23:08] <Maxell> Within 2 minutes wide band stereo was gone.
[23:08] <Maxell> Carriers still there... No modulation.
[23:08] <joeman2> can anyone recoommend what 'size' (length) a radar reflector should be?
[23:09] <joeman2> was thkning 50cm x 50cm square sheets - 3 of them all intersecting in centre
[23:09] <joeman2> I was just doing calcs on weight..and it would be quite heavy
[23:10] <Flerb> The iss presentation was interesting
