[00:00] <mfa298> day: this is an example of a dipole with an ugly balun http://m1ari.co.uk/antenna/diy-dipole
[00:02] <mfa298> it's two metal rods (gap between them inside the tube) and the coax inner goes to one side and the braid to the other side.

[00:12] <day> mfa298: so it just extends the outershield into a wire which obviously only has one surface to carry the signal?
[00:12] <day> the winding creates a stabilizing inductor?

[10:13] <edmoore> in our little amateur ballooning sphere anyway
[10:14] <mfa298> in theory the helium will be diffusing out of the balloon slowly so at some point it will lose its bouyancy, as to when that will happen, estimates have been made, and then passed.

[10:53] <fsphil> unless you have a boat handy :)

[10:54] <edmoore> always go for a land landing
[10:54] <craag> Very very ocasionally the MET office mucks up, and so the prediction is wrong
[10:54] <edmoore> for video, any commercial video camera will be good
[10:54] <edmoore> gopro is popular
[10:54] <deano86> ok so the predictor is very accurate then. This is good
[10:54] <deano86> Yeah I was thinking gopro
[10:54] <edmoore> canon digital cameras have a software project called chdk that lets you write scripts to automaticallt take photos and video
[10:55] <deano86> via arduino/microcontroller?
[10:55] <craag> If you estimate the burst alt correctly, the predictor landing is often well within +-10km or so.
[10:55] <edmoore> deano86, no, standalone
[10:56] <deano86> ah ok well thats something to look into definately

[11:04] <DG9BFC_Sigi> the predictions are VERY accurate ... i am hunting weather balloons and use these predictions every day ... and the only part that is not 100% accurate is the wind on the ground (can be locally a bit different from prediction) ... and the "quality" of parachute (prediction course has to be compressed if parachute is tangled)

[11:28] <amell> yes, disposable
[11:28] <deano86> ah so its more of a test?
[11:28] <amell> actually, i think they were trying for a float.
[11:28] <deano86> so someone has a boat lol
[11:29] <amell> so ignore the path, which means it will go on as long as the battery lasts

[11:31] <amell> or someone keeps walking in front of it.
[11:31] <deano86> oh ok, I see. so the balloon pops quicker and prevents it going in to the sea right?
[11:31] <SpeedEvil> yes
[11:32] <deano86> that makes sense
[11:32] <SpeedEvil> With a known burst radius, and a known ascent speed, and a known descent speed, trajectory can be quite accurate - sometimes in the ~10km range from prediction at launch to landing spot
[11:32] <craag> It'll still end up in the sea
[11:33] <deano86> thats pretty accurate
[11:33] <SpeedEvil> 'can' -of course.
[11:33] <edmoore> it's often very much better during the flight too
[11:33] <SpeedEvil> indeed
[11:33] <craag> He knows he's going to lose this one.
[11:33] <edmoore> e.g. we've had occassions where we've made a prediction at burst - 30km up, and it's eventually landed within about 300m of the predicted spot
[11:33] <craag> But it's a test
[11:33] <deano86> the predictor also works on the mobile tracker as well
[11:34] <deano86> which is handy
[11:34] <SpeedEvil> And that's of great use - because at 30000m or whatever - you're in sight of most of england
[11:34] <amell> Watson X-50 isnt tuned for 868Mhz right?
[11:34] <SpeedEvil> (or scotland if you launch there)
[11:35] <amell> debating about trying the software decoder, but i dont think i have the antenna for this.
[11:35] <craag> amell: Might as well give it a go
[11:35] <craag> worst case - it doesn't work, meh
[11:36] <amell> cant see anything at 869.5 at the moment
[11:37] <craag> it'll only be sending a <0.5s packet every minute or so I think

[11:50] <lepkirk> Hi Im currently putting together my first payload. Is there anyone here what could help me with a quick question?
[11:50] <Upu> just ask lepkirk
[11:51] <lepkirk> Im using the PITS board but want to use GSM tracking for redundancy and to increase chances of finding it once its back down. I read about Dave Akerman using an old nokia phone to send SMS messages that are already formatted according to the UKHAS protocol for habitat to add to the stream of radio received telemetry signals. I would like to do something similar but instead of taking apart an old phone and getting the Pi
[11:51] <lepkirk> Ive tethered an old android phone to the Pi to give the Pi internet access. The tethering and internet access working fine. My question is& how do I send the telemetry strings to the habitat server directly from the Pi? Is there an API or something I can use to connect to the server and send telemetry?
[11:51] <Upu> good question
[11:52] <Upu> I know Dave ran a seperate phone for it a while ago
[11:52] <Upu> ping daveake
[11:52] <mikestir> it's probably worth bearing in mind that getting an internet connection is way less likely than being able to get a text through
[11:53] <MarkIreland> http://www.stratodean.co.uk/2013/01/backup-tracker-just-in-case.html lepkirk
[11:53] <mikestir> which as already only about 50% likely
[11:53] <Upu> you can upload directly to habhub
[11:53] <SpeedEvil> lepkirk: run dl-fldigi onthe pi
[11:53] <Upu> if you have interwebs
[11:53] <SpeedEvil> job done
[11:53] <Upu> but text message may be a better idea
[11:54] <SpeedEvil> Indeed - texts can work more reliably in dodgy signal areas
[11:54] <lepkirk> yeah i thought internet maybe less reliable than SMS but i'd like to experiment with it anyway and maybe use an app to send GPS via SMS also then compare
[11:55] pnephos (~pnephos@95.Red-83-60-204.dynamicIP.rima-tde.net) joined #highaltitude.
[11:55] <Upu> http://habitat.readthedocs.org/en/latest/
[11:57] <lepkirk> I will look into installing dl-fldigi on the pi thanks
[11:57] <craag> lepkirk: No
[11:57] <craag> That was a joke
[11:57] <Upu> yeah
[11:57] <amell> will kill your battery
[11:58] <lepkirk> lol oh, II really am new to this
[11:58] <Upu> you just need to upload a formatted string to habitat
[11:58] <amell> you could add a bit of code to push the string to habitat
[11:58] <Upu> I don't know how to do this but someone should be able to point you in the right direction
[11:58] <lepkirk> i've had a look around http://habitat.readthedocs.org/en/latest/ but can't find anything bout uploading strings to habitat
[11:59] <lepkirk> this is exactly what I'm looking for
[11:59] <MarkIreland> Why do you need to upload it at all - just get the phone to send you a text to your personal phone if all you need is redundancy
[11:59] <MarkIreland> with gps coords
[11:59] <Upu> likely to be more reliable too
[12:00] <lepkirk> I need redundancy and just a bit of an experiment. I like if the telemetry could be added to habhub along with the radio signals, for once it's on the ground and radio is weak (if I'm far away)
[12:00] <MarkIreland> I have used that device before http://www.stratodean.co.uk/2013/01/backup-tracker-just-in-case.html. It's simple, quick and completely separate from the main tracker. If your batteries go on your main tracker you would be stuffed both ways.
[12:01] <MarkIreland> I get the experiment bit of course, but experimenting with your 'backup' device doesnt sounds like a good idea

[12:03] <lepkirk> Far enough. I may keep phone totally separate to the pi for the flight itself, still wondering if it's possible to send telemetry directly to habhub

[12:03] <lepkirk> *fair lol
[12:03] <MarkIreland> it defo is possible and think has been done
[12:04] G8KNN-1 (~quassel@ joined #highaltitude.
[12:04] <lepkirk> I wonder how dl-fldigi itself connects to habhub

[12:05] <lepkirk> thanks that looks good as a backup
[12:08] <MarkIreland> not sure who has the best '2G' coverage these days? O2 maybe?
[12:08] <craag> If you want 2G with very little data
[12:08] <craag> Get 'anyNet' sim from eseye
[12:08] <craag> (data limit is only a few MB per month)
[12:10] <craag> X0 UP
[12:10] <mfa298> lepkirk: I don't know all the details so can't give a complete answer but I think you need to send suitable data (json format) to the couchdb that runs habitat
[12:11] <mfa298> but if it's just a backup there's probably little point in sending sms strings to habitat, the radio telemetry should be much better.
[12:12] <HB9RSU> lepkirk: You run the PITS with a cam and SSDV?
[12:13] <lepkirk> I feel like if I get it working, there's no harm in having extra data sent to habhub and could be helpfull for when it's on the ground and radio is weak. If there's 2G signal, great, if there's not, it's no worse than without trying
[12:13] <lepkirk> HB9RSU: yes
[12:14] <mfa298> if you're reasonably close to it the radio shouldn't be that weak when it's on the ground.
[12:14] <lepkirk> I tried the command: curl http://habitat.habhub.org/:5984/ which I think is meant to return a welcome message but nothing happens
[12:14] <mfa298> and you should be able to track it down to a fairly low altitude if your chasing it.
[12:14] <craag> lepkirk: There's a HTTP API
[12:15] <lepkirk> (welcoem from the couchdb)
[12:15] <craag> look at github.com/philcrump/habrotate/
[12:15] <lepkirk> is there any documentation anywhere?
[12:15] <craag> in the main python file there's some examples
[12:15] <lepkirk> thanks
[12:15] <mfa298> I think the couch interface is proxied via habitat/habitat so you can't see all the couch stuff

[13:49] <SpeedEvil> you detect relativedelays between several transmitters, whos bursts are on the same frequency, but timesliced so they can't overlap in the desired range

[16:24] <Geoff-G8DHE> Yup
[16:24] <Geoff-G8DHE> just like a mag-mount on a car roof
[16:25] <maxmed> great, the size of the disk doesn't really matter does it?
[16:25] <Geoff-G8DHE> Other than it must be greater than a 1/4 wavelength
[16:26] <edmoore> in radius
[16:26] <Geoff-G8DHE> 1/2 wavelength sorry!
[16:26] <edmoore> in diameter
[16:26] <Geoff-G8DHE> indeed
[16:27] <maxmed> does it even have to be a disk or would say a square which was bigger than the 1/4 wavelength disk?
[16:27] <Geoff-G8DHE> I've never seen a circular car roof yet ?
[16:28] <edmoore> cool idea though huh :)
[16:28] <edmoore> maxmed, square is fine
[16:28] <edmoore> basically you're just approximating an infinitely long plane
[16:28] <maxmed> that was my thinking but thought it was worth checking in case it gave a subtle advantage that car radios are not too fussed about

[16:28] <edmoore> but x is small
[16:28] <edmoore> and not mega sensitive
[16:28] <Geoff-G8DHE> It does change the radiation angle a little but not enough to worry about
[16:30] <maxmed> cool, I understood my physics teacher correctly! I'm thinking I'll just stick some foil tape or foiled backed cardboard to the bottom of my payload.
[16:31] <edmoore> yep, all good
[16:31] <edmoore> just make sure it's electrically connected to rf-gnd
[16:31] <ulfr> the larger the groundplane is, the less effect it has on the radiation pattern
[16:31] <ulfr> if the ground plane is at least 1/4 lambda it reduces the radiation skewness quite a bit.
[16:32] <maxmed> edmoore- yes of course! It doesnt need connecting to the battery ground though does it?
[16:32] <edmoore> they probably are connected anyway
[16:32] <edmoore> through your radio
[16:33] <ulfr> perhaps that's not a bad idea though, considering static?

[16:33] <day> ulfr: does an infinite groundplane even radiate EM waves?
[16:33] <ulfr> Of course it does.
[16:33] <day> or would the whole radiation be shifted into the antenna itself?

[16:34] <maxmed> great thats what I expected. thanks all.

[16:39] <edmoore> i don;t think it would
[16:39] <zyp> it wouldn't
[16:39] <edmoore> assuming you're converting all your power to rf with the same efficiency (another conversation) then it comes down to the radiation pattern
[16:39] <ulfr> Might even be counter productive, as dipole is more isotropic than ground plane antenna with groundplane at 90° to the monopole
[16:39] <zyp> the only way an antenna affects range is by loss and directionality

[16:40] <edmoore> a dipole as a more symmetrical radiation pattern, so it has to spead its fixed amount of output power over a large area, if you can visualise what i mean
[16:40] <edmoore> whereas a monopole can concentrate that power into a smaller region in terms of its radiation pattern
[16:40] <edmoore> this is what we mean by antenna gain
[16:40] <edmoore> it's like filling a kitchen glove with water
[16:40] <edmoore> if you squeeze one finger, another gets fatter
[16:41] <edmoore> you have a fixed amount of power, if you reduce the gain in one direction you'll increase it in another
[16:41] <edmoore> so with the monopole vs dipole, if you go monopole you loose an entire hemisphere of radiation
[16:41] <edmoore> which means more gain in the remaining hemisphere
[16:41] <edmoore> this is why we went for monopoles for habs in the first place, back when we were first doing this
[16:42] <maxmed> ahh that explains what he was saying- he mentioned it would cover a greater area and so thought that would be better but it makes sense that the power would be more spread out so harder to detect

[16:43] <edmoore> maxmed, sometimes that'd be useful, in general for a hab it's always above us, so there's almost always no need to radiate above the payload, as that'd just be going out into space
[16:44] <edmoore> there are things better than simple monopoles which put even more energy out to the horizons (and slightly down) and less straight vertically down
[16:44] <edmoore> like J-Pole and slimjim antennas
[16:44] <edmoore> you could argue these might be even better for hab
[16:45] <maxmed> he probably didnt appreciate how low power the radios we use are, I guess if we could use more powerful transmitters then it could be worth doing.
[16:45] <edmoore> indeed - antenna choice is often very specific to th task at hand
[16:45] <zyp> antenna radiation pattern is always a tradeoff, the more focused you make it, the more efficient it will be, but the harder it will be to get it aimed correctly
[16:45] <edmoore> but there's plenty of room for experimentation here

[17:58] <ok1cdj> qyx_: this is test with continous TX, will use some TX time managemnt in next flight..
[17:59] <qyx_> ah
[18:00] <ok1cdj> qyx_: and need to reduce weight... this payload have 29 g
[18:00] <qyx_> do you have any pics of it?
[18:01] <DG0MG> ok1cdj: what is the Ballon?
[18:02] <ok1cdj> qyx_: older version 3.1 is in github, new version 3.2 will be in github soon... i have some pics from today flight.. need to upload them to the internet..
[18:02] <ok1cdj> dg0mg: 36" qualatex
[18:02] <DG0MG> ok, and the free Lift?
[18:03] <ok1cdj> 2g
[18:03] <DG0MG> ok, we will try tomorrow the same
[18:05] <ok1cdj> dg0mg: great..
[18:05] <DG0MG> with 0x03, around 10.00 MEZ
[18:05] <mclane_> how do you measure 2 g free lift?

[18:09] <ok1cdj> free lift was measured by tea bag :-)
[18:09] <ok1cdj> some pics: https://www.dropbox.com/home/Public/cdj-1
[18:11] <DG0MG> this link dont work
[18:11] <DG0MG> you must use "copy public link"

[18:14] <ok1cdj> and then cdj-1 folder
[18:17] <DG0MG> this works :) thank you!
[18:18] <DG0MG> how loang do you think that the battery works?
[18:20] <ok1cdj> when i tested tracker on my flat window in plastic box it was 35 hours from single AA battery, but was warmer than in sky :-)
[18:20] <ok1cdj> with continous TX, 20 mW
[18:21] <DG0MG> an the Battery is Lithium or Alkaline?
[18:21] <ok1cdj> Enrgizer lithium
[18:22] <DG0MG> We'll see tomorrow :D
[18:22] <ok1cdj> is better to do some spacing in TX, when is ballon in float.. i thing 2 minut pause will be good and battery last longer..
[18:22] <ok1cdj> yes will se..
[18:23] <DG0MG> yes, continuous transmitting is easy for the listeners, but not good for the battery
[18:24] <DG0MG> We think 1 Minute is good, but we will use 30sec
[18:24] <ok1cdj> yes we will see if survive night..
[18:25] <DG0MG> if you receive a very weak signal only every only 2 Minutes that might be very frustrating
[18:25] <ok1cdj> yes but in thing 10 rtty packtes every 1 or 2 minutes will be ok..
[18:25] <ok1cdj> will try it next time..
[18:26] <DG0MG> ok tell us your next start, perhaps we make a short hop in teh car to JO60JJ :D
[18:27] <ok1cdj> i'm not here to often, my home QTH is 250 km east... jo70va
[18:27] <DG0MG> oaah thats not a short hop ^^
[18:28] <ok1cdj> yes, i have family in Karlovy Vary and going to OL7C for VHF Contest
[18:29] <DG0MG> ah, first weekend in November, this is the CW-only VHF?
[18:29] <DG0MG> or only 2 Meters?
[18:29] <ok1cdj> yes..
[18:30] <ok1cdj> i was there but not for contest only for help friends and launch baloon.. i have some family duties this weekend..

[18:32] <DG0MG> ok, perhaps next year - the first contest is in March
[18:33] <ok1cdj> yes sure :-) or we can make some baloon meeting.. there is cotage on the hill antennas and so on..
[18:33] <DG0MG> or if a Balloon from JO70 goes to west direction ..
[18:34] <ok1cdj> yes.. but to west is not common direction..
[18:35] <DG0MG> a great idea, here around are many ballon-Fans and Radiosonde-Hunters

[20:19] <Myself> a rechargeable cell's datasheet will specify a "do not discharge below" voltage, which is the cutoff point beyond which the cell separator should be assumed damaged, and recharging is likely to result in the euphemistically-wonderful "venting with flame".
