[00:00] <russss> oh wait, *now* the tracker gives me a predicted landing. 35.3079, -115.892
[00:00] <lz1dev> i'd wait for it to get closer to the ground
[00:01] <lz1dev> before tanking the prediction as anything more than a general direction
[00:01] <russss> yeah, geography might affect the actual landing spot a bit
[00:04] <ejcweb_> Thanks russss
[00:05] <russss> ejcweb_: Kelbaker Road might be your best target vehicle-wise but there is some geography in the way which might shake things up a bit
[00:08] <russss> 35.2396, -115.991 is the latest prediction
[00:09] <russss> and now it updated, coming down quite a lot shorter than that
[00:09] <lz1dev> don't go too much by the predictor, it seems to be overestimating for this one
[00:10] <russss> low level winds could change it a lot
[00:11] <russss> my guess is approx 7.5 miles due southeast of Baker
[00:14] <mattbrejza> whats the altitude at landing? if its significant thatll lead to overestimations
[00:14] <goopypanther> -2m or so?
[00:15] <mattbrejza> oh lol nm then
[00:15] <mattbrejza> i ment ground height
[00:15] <russss> yeah, tracker claims -2m, but there are 500m hills around
[00:15] <mattbrejza> the tracker has no knowledge of the ground height
[00:15] <mattbrejza> *predictor
[00:16] <russss> assuming the summit heights I'm getting off Google Earth are accurate
[00:16] <russss> oh yeah, now we're getting low-level winds affecting it
[00:19] <russss> ejcweb_: 35.1393, -115.946 now, although I suspect it'll go a bit east of that
[00:20] <russss> seems like an easy area to find it in at least
[00:22] <ejcweb_> Thanks. We're approaching there.
[00:23] <ejcweb_> Do we have many APRS listeners?
[00:29] <lz1dev> !whereis w1dow-1
[00:29] <SpacenearUS> 03lz1dev: 03W1DOW-1 is near 03San Bernardino County, CA, USA 10(35.11999,-115.94584) at 03456 meters
[00:30] <lz1dev> ground altitude is 390m
[00:30] <lz1dev> so it should be fairly close to those coords
[00:30] <ejcweb_> Awesome.
[00:30] <lz1dev> hopefull you've choosen some bright red colors to spot it
[00:31] <goopypanther> does the chase vehicle have aprs?
[00:31] <russss> the last listener was AK7V-1 at 00:24 UTC, previous one was KJ6BOI-1 at 00:22
[00:31] <russss> oh wait, I can't sort on aprs.fi
[00:32] <russss> W6SCE-10 at 00:25:17, followed by RODMAN at 00:25:05, followed by the previous two
[00:32] <russss> not bad for the desert
[00:32] <lz1dev> lots of aprs in the us
[00:33] <russss> guess there's not too much else to do out there ;)
[00:33] <russss> just round the corner from Zzyzx, CA https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zzyzx,_California
[00:34] <ejcweb_> Can you confirm the last coords?
[00:35] <russss> !whereis w1dow-1
[00:35] <SpacenearUS> 03russss: 03W1DOW-1 was near 03San Bernardino County, CA, USA 10(35.11999,-115.94584) at 03456 meters about 0310 minutes ago

[06:56] <daveake> just vaguely similar
[06:57] <Chetic> um.. it uses the same CRC, and NMEA allows anything starting with $P, for custom sentences
[06:57] <Chetic> it's extremly similar
[06:57] <edmoore> no it isn't
[06:57] <tweetBot> @G8DHE: ChiHAB is flying West from Chichester 434.648MHz Track: http://t.co/fZwZzocXWt #ukhas #hab
[06:57] <edmoore> stop saying that, it's completely wrong
[06:58] <Chetic> how is it different, besides the callsign field?
[06:58] <edmoore> nmea is a whole standard about how navigation devices communicate, specifying exactly the message structures, valid message headers, the exact payload that must be sent with a header, and so on
[06:58] <edmoore> you're considering this only at one layer of the specification - it's ascii with a header and a checksum and commas
[06:59] <edmoore> that's an extremely narrow way to look at a specification
[06:59] <edmoore> and an incorrect one
[06:59] G0HDI- (5c165f72@gateway/web/freenode/ip.92.22.95.114) joined #highaltitude.
[07:01] <Chetic> right, but where exactly does it break the NMEA sentence-part of the NMEA standard?
[07:01] <edmoore> what is 'it'
[07:02] <Chetic> telemetry sentences
[07:02] <edmoore> and what is the 'nmea sentence-part' of the standard?
[07:02] maounis (~textual@37.99.193.59) joined #highaltitude.
[07:02] <Chetic> the part of the standard that specifies which sentences are allowed
[07:03] <edmoore> right, so a normal telemetry string isn't in the standard
[07:03] <Chetic> "Proprietary Sentences. The standard allows individual manufacturers to define proprietary sentence"
[07:03] <Chetic> formats. These sentences start with "$P", then a 3 letter manufacturer ID, followed by whatever data the
[07:03] <Chetic> manufacturer wishes, following the general format of the standard sentences."
[07:03] sumie-dh (~sumie-dh@rt01.komunikacnisite.cz) left irc: Ping timeout: 256 seconds
[07:03] <edmoore> sure, so we don't follow the vendor extension part at all
[07:03] <Chetic> NMEA standard allows proprietary sentences and habhub telemetry sentences basically follow that, except for the callsign field
[07:03] <edmoore> we just put an arbitrary identifier with an arbitrary payload
[07:04] <Chetic> so it breaks the standard, except for the callsign field being 4 characters, by not requiring a fixed amount of fields

[07:54] <amell> landing yeovil? you need to get a shift on
[07:54] <mfa298> Chetic: Not wanting to start the whole debate again (especially during a flight), I think what you might have been looking for is that the UKHas format and NMEA are both forms of CSV records. What you were saying would be similar to me saying that because my car has a windscreen, 4 wheels, an engine and a steering wheel it's a form of Porsche as it's very similar, when in fact they're both forms of car.
[07:55] <Chetic> I wasn't really saying it WAS nmea, mfa298
[07:55] <Chetic> I was more asking what makes it not nmea
[07:55] <amell> its not NMEA because it doesnt start with a standard command.
[07:55] <Chetic> nmea allows proprietary sentences
[07:55] <Chetic> $PABC,bla,bla,*crc
[07:56] <amell> any tips for desoldering and separating a patch antenna?
[07:56] <Geoff-G8DHE> Don't touch the ceramic it will be hot ;-)
[07:56] <ChiHAB-Rik> on the move again
[07:57] <amell> should i try and shatter the old one. or? best way? it is through pin soldered to board
[07:57] <garymortimer> the balloon waited
[07:58] <fsphil> the ukhas string wasn't made my the National Merine Electronics Association
[07:58] <fsphil> done :)
[07:58] <fsphil> ukhas has multiple options for crc too
[07:58] <mfa298> what makes my car not a Porsche - mostly the logo on the back - it's the small things that make a standard. UKHAS format does not fit the NMEA standard. They're only similar because they are both values seperated by commas. In the same way that my car is similar to a Porsche because they are both cars.
[07:58] <Chetic> nmea allows proprietary sentences from third parties
[07:58] <fsphil> the 8-bit crc of gps is not good enough
[07:59] <amell> neither is RTTY
[07:59] <fsphil> um?
[08:00] <fsphil> the first field in nmea is not a callsign either, it's a command
[08:00] <fsphil> and custom stuff must begin with a P

[08:01] <garymortimer> did you fill up the van at the services?
[08:01] <Chetic> the ukhas format could be very slightly altered to follow nmea

[08:02] <fsphil> ukhas needs a least two $$'s
[08:02] <amell> got the old patch off. unbelievable. the pin wasnt even soldered properly. no wonder reception was so bad.
[08:02] li4mO (~androirc@81.141.69.179) joined #highaltitude.
[08:02] <Chetic> I'm just saying it's close, and following standards is good
[08:02] <gonzo_> or let nmea catch up with us
[08:02] <mfa298> why would we want to. It was not designed to be part of NMEA, there's no reason for it to look like NMEA.
[08:03] <mfa298> Chetic: I'd say it is following a standard: Comma Seperated variables.
[08:03] <fsphil> not that it matters anyway
[08:04] <Chetic> nmea code libraries could be used
[08:04] <Chetic> tiny benefit, probably not worth it
[08:04] <fsphil> nope
[08:04] <fsphil> we might add/change stuff to the format some day
[08:04] <Chetic> I'm just saying what is possible, no need to make a fuss
[08:04] <fsphil> don't want to be limited that way
[08:04] <fsphil> especially with the limited 8-bit crc

[08:05] <fsphil> this payload is taking its time getting above my horizon
[08:05] <amell> fsphil: excellent reception at 177km here
[08:06] <amell> it pays to live in the fens
[08:06] <mfa298> also parsing NMEA can be hard as the values can not exist. (i.e. the number of people that try and strtok a nmea string and then fail)
[08:06] <garymortimer> Its enjoying Southampton
[08:06] <fsphil> good good. been a while since I've tried to rx a 50 baud payload
[08:06] Action: mfa298 should turn the radio on. It should go from zero to full power soon as it clears the building
[08:07] <amell> payload seems to be drifting south.
[08:07] <amell> craag: have you had any closer payloads?
[08:08] <Geoff-G8DHE-M> I think it was waving at craag!
[08:11] <fsphil> ah there it is, see the signal now
[08:11] <mfa298> wow, there's a lot of noise here stomping all over the signal
[08:11] <fsphil> shift is about 370hz
[08:11] <ChiHAB-Rik> seems to have narowed úp
[08:12] <ChiHAB-Rik> hardnto decoð on bus at present
[08:12] <gonzo_> yep, looks like shift reduced over time. Batt/cold?
[08:12] <fsphil> you can manually change the shift
[08:12] <fsphil> right click on RTTY on the bottom left
[08:12] <amell> why is the bus going in the opposite direction?
[08:12] <ChiHAB-Rik> will have a play
[08:13] <mfa298> signal seems to be fading a bit as well, but that could be as it's overhead
[08:15] <ChiHAB-Rik> phone orientation might explain bus looking backwards
[08:16] <craag> mfa298: Very strong and constant on the websdr
[08:16] <mfa298> craag: I'm suspecting it's that it's close to overhead here so lots of NULLS

[09:40] <amell> this is a significant extension of ISH
[09:42] <DanielRichman> ISH is actually -1 hours from UTC
[09:42] <DanielRichman> thus 3pm :P
[09:42] <DanielRichman> (I think I've got that right)
[09:42] <amell> the launch was slated for 12.30
[09:42] <DanielRichman> 1300
[09:43] <amell> ISH+2 then
[09:43] <DanielRichman> are you sure? e.g. Paris is UTC+2 and it's 11:43 there now
[09:43] <DanielRichman> so 1300 UTC+2 is 1200 local
[09:43] <garymortimer> Gosh the van is pretty far north now
[09:44] <DanielRichman> I think we want UTC-2
[09:44] <DanielRichman> sorry, UTC-1
[09:44] <Geoff-G8DHE> Odd position ? Perhaps their DFing rather looking at the map!
[09:44] <DanielRichman> noting that local is UTC+1
[09:44] <amell> i think theres GPS issues
[09:44] <amell> high HDOP
[09:45] <amell> ah. ground lock on
[09:45] <amell> uh. landed in a farm yard. hope farmer hasnt got it
[09:45] <garymortimer> In the yard bob on
[09:47] <SQ5KVS> the payload is cow resistant?

[10:22] <craag> isotropic antennas are.. errr.. *hard*
[10:23] <craag> Whatever antenna they had - it seemed to work well - strong consistent signal on the websdr.
[10:24] <amell> receiving at 180km is good in my book with my setup. so no complaints here
[10:25] <daveake> Yeah, but all that gain on .650 ... someone think of the hams!

[12:55] <Chetic> any tips for avoiding drift?
[12:55] <Chetic> it's been working fine for me all morning but now I can't decode a damn thing
[12:59] <Geoff-G8DHE-M> Signal leve in to dl-fldigi, Rv button ?
[13:00] <Chetic> the frequency just never stabilizes. what could the cause be?
[13:01] <Chetic> considering it was no problem earlier
[13:01] <Chetic> the payload is running on battery now, it wasn't before
[13:02] <Geoff-G8DHE-M> The impeadance leves change a lot between PSU and Batteries
[13:02] <Geoff-G8DHE-M> you can get allsorts of oddities, especially if decupling is poor ?

[13:07] <Northants> G8DHE... Thanks for that, will keep eyes / ears open
[13:07] <Chetic> http://i.imgur.com/qfGFLhe.png
[13:08] <Chetic> think I've tried tweaking everything twice
[13:08] <Chetic> freq drift has settled (when I switched to one of the two rtl sdrs and waited a while)
[13:09] <Northants> G8DHE...Site did say from 12 GMT so guess we will have to wait and see
[13:09] <Geoff-G8DHE-M> They delayed think it was a messahe on the board
[13:10] <Geoff-G8DHE-M> Yup https://groups.google.com/d/msg/ukhas/XwUezxwPNVw/EXXUKeOAgCgJ
[13:11] <daveake> Chetic I suggest you set the filter width to Auto, and you reduce the carrier shift setting a bit to match the transmission
[13:12] <Chetic> roger. still not getting anything though
[13:12] <daveake> then something else changed
[13:13] <daveake> e.g. you might not be tuned in to the correct signal
[13:13] <Chetic> it's definitely my payload
[13:15] <gonzo_> reverse shift?
[13:15] <daveake> Yeah was about to suggest that
[13:15] <Chetic> tried both
[13:16] <gonzo_> 7bit/8bit
[13:16] <Chetic> tried both, it's 7
[13:16] <Chetic> trying powering from wall outlet usb now
[13:17] <Geoff-G8DHE> You have the Squelch on at a low level never a good idea
[13:17] <Chetic> if that works I'm throwing this in the trash
[13:17] <Chetic> what does that mean Geoff-G8DHE_
[13:17] <Chetic> ?
[13:17] <gonzo_> squelch usually results in no data at all
[13:17] <Geoff-G8DHE> Squelch suppress's the signal when there is noise present
[13:17] <gonzo_> what Chetic is getting is corrupt data?
[13:18] <Geoff-G8DHE> so it only appears when its a clean signal
[13:18] <gonzo_> ah, ok. Never used it
[13:18] <Chetic> ah ok not gonna use squelch
[13:18] <Geoff-G8DHE> click the lower right button and pull the slider right down low
[13:19] <Geoff-G8DHE> yes the Squelch can cu-out the signal when one is a bit out of passband
[13:19] <Chetic> ok good to know about squelch, but I've got the same problem without it
[13:19] <Geoff-G8DHE> You also have AGC on in SDR# again not always a good idea when testing as its changing things outside your control
[13:21] <Geoff-G8DHE> You also do have Rv selected, is that intentional ?
[13:22] <Chetic> yeah was just a test
[13:23] <Chetic> this is what it's like now http://i.imgur.com/qQIZZOW.png
[13:23] <Geoff-G8DHE> The mark appears correct so it would give you rubbish if that was on!
[13:24] <Chetic> the audio itself is crystal clear and sounds just like it did when I was decoding properly
[13:24] <Chetic> (as far as my ears can tell)
[13:25] <amell> i dont see two tones there in your waterfall
[13:25] <Geoff-G8DHE> Nothing obviously wrong, can you check the actual output from the processor to the Tx make sure the code hasn't gone odd
[13:25] <Chetic> don't have the hardware for that but I can kill the program and check the last used uart settings
[13:26] <amell> zoom in, do you actually see RTTY? I dont see RTTY in that waterfall
[13:27] <Chetic> well it sounds like it, and I can clearly see some kind of shift happening
[13:27] <Chetic> oh damn
[13:27] <Geoff-G8DHE> The last part looks very smooth ?
[13:27] <amell> looks like a carrier to me
[13:28] <amell> you need to zoom in to be sure
[13:28] <Chetic> I tried explicitly writing to the uart with a different program and then it works
[13:28] <Chetic> so it's software... what in the world is going on
[13:28] <amell> this is why we test&

[15:34] <mattbrejza> ikr
[15:34] <edmoore> it's clouded here now

[18:09] <Nyamazane> curently we put GPS units on the back of Vultures and they fly free over the reserves and data gets downloaded that way as well...but sadly the poachers are killing the vultures and that is not helping...:-(
[18:10] <Nyamazane> So balloons are more easily replacable

[20:01] <mattreid> Hey, I was wondering, when the payload drops, does it experience 0G seeing as it is at a constant 5m/s?
[20:01] <LuckyLuke> 0g would be for a freefall i guess
[20:02] <edmoore> so no
[20:02] <LuckyLuke> so accelerating at 9.81 m/s2
[20:02] <edmoore> it doesn;t experience 0g
[20:02] <edmoore> it probably experiences 0g immediately after the balloon bursts
[20:02] <edmoore> rising to 1G as it achieves equilibrium
[20:03] <Geoff-G8DHE> ChiHAB-Rik, Always interesting ;-) I put a Object Movie of your flight up here if its of interst http://360.g8dhe.net/HAB_Flights/2015_Flights/ChiHab_20150422/
[20:03] <mattreid> Aww, shame - would have been cool though :D
[20:03] <edmoore> what did you have in mind?
[20:03] <LuckyLuke> he's testing 0G effect on worms ;) ?
[20:04] <ChiHAB-Rik> Wow - that's awesome Geoff - thanks!
[20:04] <mattreid> How did u guess XD Nah, I just thought it would be cool to have something floating in a clear payload bay
[20:04] <edmoore> i think the 0psi and 0C part might have a bigger effect on the worms
[20:05] <edmoore> well you can work out how much microgravity you get, and for how long, with a balloon payload that you release from say 30,000m
[20:05] <edmoore> but you're not talking much
[20:05] <edmoore> under a few milliG for only a very small fraction of a second

[20:06] <edmoore> well, good science helps things even more :)
[20:07] <mattreid> I used 'big words' so now they have to nod and agree ;) What sensor could I use to measure G loads?
[20:07] <edmoore> but try and convince yourself why a system under a parachute descending to ground level is in equilibrium, and therefore feels its 1g of weight
[20:07] <edmoore> an accelerometer
[20:08] <mattreid> I have a 6 axis IMU somewhere on this desk..... I think it may have one of those in it...
[20:08] <edmoore> it will probably have three of those in!
[20:08] <edmoore> three of the axis will be accelerometers, three will be gyroscopes
[20:09] <edmoore> that means you can measure movements-in, and rotations-about, any axis in 3d space

[20:10] <mattreid> I may get a Arduino SD data logger so I don't have to transmit it. I have a RFM22B set up working and it works pretty well if I say so myself
[20:11] <Babs> Evening all - quick q - i've hooked up and soldered up my board apart from the capacitors, which I am waiting on. I tried programming it anyway whilst i am waiting, and the thing appears to work, but at about 1/4 speed. is it hosed or is it the lack of capacitors? ( I guess I could wait until the end of the week when they arrive but in the mean time I'm impatient....)
[20:12] <mattreid> What microprocessor are u using?
[20:14] <Babs> atmega328
[20:14] <edmoore> is this ordinarily in arduino-land?
[20:15] <edmoore> and have you set the fuses properly if you're departing from the arduino chip?
[20:15] <edmoore> to use the right oscillator?
[20:15] <Babs> hey ed
[20:15] <Babs> i'm programming it in the same way i did the dip version
[20:16] <edmoore> ok - it still could be fuses
[20:16] <edmoore> if it's basically all fine except the speed is out
[20:16] <Babs> in arduino land but programming through the avrisp thing
[20:16] <mattreid> brb sry
[20:17] <edmoore> check you've programmed the fuses correctly on this new chip
[20:17] <Babs> doesn't the avrisp do that automatically?
[20:17] <edmoore> don't know for sure but don't think so
[20:18] <edmoore> usually it's a separate process to programming the flash
[20:18] <edmoore> when i invoke avrdude from the command line i have to deliberately do it separately
[20:18] <edmoore> if it's actually 1/8 what you expect that i'm almost certain it's the divide-by-8 fuse
[20:19] <edmoore> there are other fuses that tell it to use either the internal clock or one of several external-clock options
[20:19] <Babs> let me time it with the blinky thing
[20:19] <Ian_> Sounds about right. I guess that Avrdude uses command line switches in place of the boards,txt to specify various bits and options?
[20:20] <edmoore> possibly. my knowledge of arduino is not great tbh
[20:20] <edmoore> i know it just wraps avrdude
[20:21] <Babs> definitely the 1/8 thing
[20:21] <edmoore> right
[20:21] <edmoore> fuses
[20:21] <Babs> i blinked at 125 milliseconds and it blinks every second
[20:21] <mattreid> Back, what's the baud rate?

[20:29] <mattreid> Maybe turn it up to 36800 (or something higher) and maybe up the power to 5v? No expert but that generally works for me
[20:31] <Babs> its running off 3.3, works on the breadboarded version with the DIP chip, shouldn't really be any different but as Ed says, I think its the fuses. cheers anyway.
[20:32] <mattreid> np :)
[20:37] <mattreid> With HABs, can we use SSDV or SSTV (in the UK and have a radio licence)
[20:38] <Geoff-G8DHE> An Amateur radio licence is no good on a balloon as it bans use in the air!
[20:39] <Geoff-G8DHE> Which is why we use the ISM band (which happens to be in 70cms Amateur band).
[20:39] <mattreid> So no SSTV? :'( What about a FPV downlink?
[20:40] <Geoff-G8DHE> Use what modes you like, but ISM limits the power/bandwidth etc. FPV video is not usuable. we do SSDV instead slow speed images.
[20:41] <mattreid> So what frequencies can we use SSDV?
[20:41] <Geoff-G8DHE> Any within the ISM band
[20:41] <mattreid> 70cm/2m right?
[20:42] <daveake> see IR2030
[20:42] <Geoff-G8DHE> NO the ISM band 434.05 to 434.8MHz
[20:42] <amell> this is fun for the rocket folks https://www.youtube.com/watch?t=26&v=Hl8btwQ-X2k
[20:43] <Reb-SM3U1C> btw, the 1.2 & 2.4 ghz band, anyone used those on hab?
[20:43] <Babs> got it (in case anyone is interested) - you have to burn the arduino bootloader to the chip first to reset the fuse to the correct setting
[20:44] <Babs> then even if you write over the bootloader by writing directly with the avrisp it will retain the fuse settings
[20:45] <Ian_> Thanks on that Babs, something new learned which might be useful to me or to someone else when you aren't around to share your wisdom directly.
[20:45] <mattreid> Geoff-G8DHE I got my licence ages ago and barely use it, thanks - I'll look into it :)
[20:45] <Ian_> Always interested.
[20:48] <Ian_> I guess that the Amateur Radio Licence terms, conditions and limitations and IR2030 aren't bed time reading, but you need to do your research when you plan on entering an unfamiliar mode or area of activity..

[21:17] <prog> guys, do you use noise reduction for hab stuff?
[21:17] <LuckyLuke> ticking 'CorrectIQ' does nothing
[21:17] <LuckyLuke> in SDR#
[21:17] <prog> it has limited effect with airspy ...
[21:18] <LuckyLuke> 'Swap IQ' move the other peak to the right, buit then I can't decode it in fldigi
[21:18] <Geoff-G8DHE> We have the Man here! prog - why do you have both Correct IQ and Swap I&Q ?
[21:18] <prog> swap IQ inverts the spectrum
[21:18] <Geoff-G8DHE> Yes so Correct IQ ?
[21:18] <prog> correct IQ fixes the DC offset and the phase/amplitude imbalance
[21:18] <prog> there's very little DC in Airspy
[21:19] <prog> and the phase/amplitude is perfect (calculated rather than sensed)
[21:19] <Geoff-G8DHE> Ah right read those as both applying to the IQ reversal aspects
[21:19] <prog> can you explain what's the setup here?
[21:19] <prog> sending what modulation?
[21:20] <Geoff-G8DHE> Its RTTY in USB mode, but this problem seems to be at the Tx end rather than the Rx end
[21:21] <LuckyLuke> I brainlessly copied OpenSerialPort() routine from PITS code
[21:21] <Geoff-G8DHE> as to noise reduction or any filtering I prefer off
[21:21] <LuckyLuke> and using it the way I showed in screenhot
[21:21] <prog> in the screenshot he's not using SSB
[21:21] <prog> CW is yet another mode
[21:21] <prog> use USB
[21:22] <prog> Geoff-G8DHE: the DNR has a very good effect on RTTY
[21:22] <prog> ask Upu
[21:23] <Geoff-G8DHE> OK but don't often use SDR# as most often need multipile VFO's :-(
[21:24] <prog> use multi-vfo plugin ... with a better DSP !
[21:24] <Geoff-G8DHE> also need CAT control of SDR# from dl-fldigi to do the tuning etc.
[21:24] <prog> cat plugin?
[21:25] <prog> well. it doesn't exist :P
[21:25] <Geoff-G8DHE> then I don't have to tune it when the signal drifts :P
[21:25] <LuckyLuke> so switching to USB and disabling RV works OK
[21:25] <prog> ah you mean doppler correction?
[21:25] <LuckyLuke> and makes sense to me whats more important !
[21:26] <Geoff-G8DHE> No Tx drift going from +20 to -40 C
[21:26] <prog> what's the frequency drift in Hz?
