[09:24] <Vega-1> Hi there.....
[09:25] <Vega-1> Somebody can help me with a HAB launch?
[09:25] <UpuWork> the actual launch or tracker etc ?
[09:26] <Vega-1> I have my payload ready for launch the july 4 and I have the flight document but my flight isnot in the calendar....
[09:27] <UpuWork> did you get your flight document approved ?
[09:27] <Vega-1> I dont know how to do that
[09:27] <UpuWork> join #habhub
[09:28] <UpuWork> type /join #habhub :)
[09:28] <Vega-1> Ok i go to try.... thank you very much....
[09:28] <UpuWork> its the channel we sort this sort of thing out on
[09:29] <Vega-1> Sorry but I dont know how to join to #habhub
[09:29] <UpuWork> can you double click the "#habhub" bit ?
[09:29] <Vega-1> where?
[09:29] <UpuWork> 1 sec phone
[09:30] <infaddict> Vega-1: in your IRC client you need to join the #habhub channel. either type /join #habhub or use your menus.
[09:30] <luteijn|pc1pcl> depends a bit on your client, but if you're using a webbased one, perhaps there is a '#highaltitude' that you can replace with '#habhub' in the url?
[09:30] <infaddict> in most clients the channel will then by shown on left or right menus
[09:30] <eroomde> type the following into your text bok, without the quotes: "/join #habhub"
[09:31] <infaddict> also i notice your payload is untested
[09:31] <infaddict> ideally you need to test it and get a good sentence decoded/uploaded before your flight
[09:32] <luteijn|pc1pcl> http://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=habhub would probably work.
[09:32] <Vega-1> It is tested yet, 3 or 4 times but maybe the name was different
[09:33] <eroomde> you managed
[09:34] <Vega-1> Sorry I cant understand you.... my english is very poor
[09:34] <sq5kvs> eroomde: Your chart is true only if You hire the pyromaniac
[09:34] <eroomde> sq5kvs: we are all pyromaniacal here
[09:34] <eroomde> no need to worry about that
[09:36] anerdev (~anerdev@ joined #highaltitude.
[09:36] <infaddict> Vega-1: your English is great btw
[09:37] <luteijn|pc1pcl> better than my (and probably quite a few others' here) Spanish, in any case
[09:37] <Vega-1> Ok.....:)
[09:37] <eroomde> yes your english is a lot better than many on this channel who speak english as a second language
[09:37] <eroomde> don't worry about that
[09:37] <Vega-1> I joined in #habhub
[09:38] <Vega-1> There are spanish people here?
[09:38] <Vega-1> Or Im the first HABHUB spanish HABer?
[09:39] <eroomde> there are some
[09:39] <eroomde> sorry capslock
[09:39] <gonzo_> shhh
[09:40] <eroomde> and some english people have launched from spain because it has very good aircraft laws
[09:40] <Vega-1> Catalonia is a Spanish Region but they want to separate from Spanish.... not all
[09:40] MikkMihkel (~michemto@ joined #highaltitude.
[09:40] <eroomde> but the more spanish the better
[09:40] <Vega-1> Better laws than in Europe/UK?
[09:40] <eroomde> yeah
[09:40] <eroomde> you can drop UAVs i think
[09:41] <Vega-1> I think not. Our government is making laws with more restrictions....
[09:42] <Vega-1> I have a question....
[09:43] <Vega-1> When I launch my balloon its posible tah somebody help me with the tracking?
[09:43] michemto (~michemto@ left irc: Ping timeout: 248 seconds
[09:43] <Vega-1> Help me with is SDR/Radio and antenna...
[09:43] <eroomde> i'm sure some people will try, however there are not many listeners in spain
[09:43] <eroomde> the best thing to do is to announce your launch on the UKHAS mailing list and appeal for spanish trackers
[09:43] <Vega-1> Yes, there are very few HABers in Spain
[09:43] <eroomde> you *definitely* must have your own working, reliable tracking system when you launch
[09:44] <eroomde> at the launch site and in the chase car
[09:44] <eroomde> *never* rely on someone else to track for you
[09:44] <eroomde> you will very likely lose your payload and get zero sympathy
[09:44] <luteijn|pc1pcl> if it goes up reasonably high, we will be able to listen remotely, but the first and last bits of the trip the transmiter will be under the horizon for most of us.
[09:45] <Vega-1> Yes, I know, I have 2 Yagi and 1 SDR generic and 1 Funcube Dongle pro +
[09:45] <eroomde> yes, to give you an idea, when flights happen in the UK there are often people tracking in france and the netherlands and so on
[09:45] <eroomde> but there are not that many tracker in spain or the south of france
[09:45] <Vega-1> I have tested my tracking 30 km away and very good
[09:45] <eroomde> ok, the funcube pro is great so you should be fine
[09:46] <eroomde> maybe give the generic sdr stuff to a friend somewhere down your predicted flight path
[09:47] <eroomde> (another friend in a car maybe)
[09:47] <Vega-1> Predictions say that my balloon will touch the ground 50 km away
[09:47] <gonzo_> also, try and get some interest in the amateur radio community, and get more receiving stations on the air in spain
[09:47] <eroomde> if you have 2 yagi, you hopefully won't need them, but you can have one at each end and take bearings to the payload if the gps fails
[09:48] <eroomde> yes, i would start emailing local amateur radio groups now
[09:48] <eroomde> with details of your flight and a link to the ukhas wiki about tracking balloons
[09:48] <Vega-1> One car in the launch point with the SDR generic and one car waiting in the middle of balloon path... its correct?
[09:48] <eroomde> and email the ukhas mailing list and make sure to ask for spanish/south-of-france listeners
[09:48] <eroomde> Vega-1: yes that would be a good stragety
[09:49] <eroomde> or the other car can even be nearer the predicted landing point
[09:49] <eroomde> i recommend the car at the launch site packs up quickly and chases after the balloon after launch
[09:49] <sq5kvs> believe or not but the rtl dongle (RTL832T2 ) has enough sensitivity to track 10mW tracker from hundreds km
[09:49] <sq5kvs> with yagi beam of course
[09:50] <eroomde> though a saw+filter helps a bit
[09:50] <eroomde> sorry, amp+filter
[09:51] <Vega-1> Yes, that is...... when my second tracking car hooks the balloon the launch car drive quickly to the predicted touchdown point
[09:52] <eroomde> yes
[09:52] <eroomde> anything like that sounds good
[09:52] <Vega-1> Thank you very much guys.... I need te return to my job.... in 4 or 5 hours I ll perform another payload test....
[09:52] <eroomde> just keep good contact between the two cars so you can change plans quickly if you need
[09:53] <eroomde> e.g. you might accidently fill the balloon too little
[09:53] <eroomde> so it goes up very slowly
[09:53] <eroomde> so you both might have to drive another 100km down range
[09:53] <eroomde> (it can happen!)
[09:53] <eroomde> good luck
[09:53] <eroomde> have one or both cars on this channel during the flight
[09:53] <eroomde> we can help with landing spot predictions and so on
[09:53] <luteijn|pc1pcl> as you can maybe see from the Portuguese balloon's blue circle, http://tracker.habhub.org/#!mt=roadmap&mz=5&qm=1_day&f=CT2JVS , not that many listening stations at all near, although there might be people that could set something up if they know about the launch. So sending a launch announcement and having it on the calendar might help.
[09:54] <Vega-1> Yes I know... I have a pirotechinc cutdown device to avoid that problem
[09:54] <eroomde> excellent
[09:54] <Vega-1> My tracker y made for my. Is a PIC custom PCB.....
[09:55] <Vega-1> Trimble Copernicus II, NTX2,
[09:55] <eroomde> got a picture?
[09:55] <eroomde> we love home-made trackers here
[09:55] <luteijn|pc1pcl> maybe even a website/blog about it?
[09:56] <Vega-1> I dont have time to do that, sorry....
[09:57] <Vega-1> I dont have here any pics of mi PICTracker..... In 4 hours, in my house I can sen you...
[09:57] <eroomde> excellent

[10:42] <infaddict> morning
[10:46] <infaddict> Do most people use Helium for their gas? Interested in experiences of other alternatives.
[10:47] <eroomde> the answer to your question is yes
[10:47] <infaddict> Such as hydrogen. Wondering if that is better/cheaper... googling for costs now
[10:47] <eroomde> the answer to the question you are probably meaning to ask is don't be afriad of hydrogen, it's fine and much cheaper and has better lift performance
[10:47] <sq5kvs> I was trying with carbon dioxide but without significant results :D
[10:48] <infaddict> thx eroomde - i notice the calculators do suggest better lift with hydrogen and similar amounts needed
[10:48] <eroomde> yes
[10:48] <eroomde> it's half the desnity of He
[10:48] <infaddict> and if its cheaper, its something i will investigate further
[10:48] <eroomde> so that works out as giving you about an extra 100g of lift per cubic meter at sea level
[10:48] <eroomde> it is very much cheaper
[10:49] <gonzo_> and it's a renewable resource
[10:49] <mfa298> I think others have found H2 is cheaper in the long run - but you need to buy a suitable regulator which makes H2 more expensive for a couple of flights
[10:50] <eroomde> you can get regulators from anywhere though, they're not too pricey
[10:50] Elwell (~elwell@freenode/staff-emeritus/elwell) left irc: Ping timeout: 256 seconds
[10:50] <infaddict> mmm good point mfa298. with my 1-2 launches a year, i'd be looking for a hire/return type solution.
[10:50] <eroomde> you can probably hire the regs with the bottles
[10:50] <gonzo_> What is special about H2 regs? I've used a standard welding reg.
[10:51] Elwell (~elwell@freenode/staff-emeritus/elwell) joined #highaltitude.
[10:51] <eroomde> nothing really
[10:51] <eroomde> hydrogen is quite straightforward and well behaves
[10:51] <eroomde> it's reducing
[10:51] <eroomde> no real constraints
[10:51] <infaddict> google tells me it is highly dangerous and burns invisibly ;-/
[10:51] <infaddict> sounds like fun
[10:52] <eroomde> meh it's about the safest thing we have at work
[10:52] <eroomde> apart from maybe nitrogen
[10:52] <eroomde> it turns burn almost invisibly yes
[10:52] <eroomde> hence our rocket engine not looking like much in daytime
[10:53] <infaddict> BOC site says "Will ignite easily so cylinders must not be snifted". what on earth is snifted?!
[10:53] <eroomde> opening the bottle valve
[10:53] <eroomde> just to blast the valve and plumbing clean of any crud
[10:53] <eroomde> before attaching the regulator, say
[10:54] <infaddict> ah right
[10:54] <eroomde> i i'm not that convinced it'd ignite though
[10:54] <eroomde> they're probably being cautious
[10:54] <infaddict> yer what was cause the ignition?
[10:54] <infaddict> was/would
[10:54] <eroomde> well exactly
[10:54] <eroomde> there's a lot of scaremongering about hydrogen
[10:55] <luteijn|pc1pcl> friction => static discharge I guess.
[10:55] <eroomde> sure it's flammable so to a first approximation blasting high pressure flammable gas into the open in industrial environments is probably not the best
[10:55] <infaddict> cant see many suppliers in UK other than BOC (unlike party balloon type companies with He)
[10:55] <eroomde> poor bob having a fag break or whatever
[10:55] <eroomde> but we vent very large qtys of hydrogen at very high pressures and speeds all the time and they never spontaneously combust
[10:55] <x-f> hydrogen is "weird" in that it heats up when expands, other gases cool down with expansion (IIRC)
[10:55] <mattbrejza> http://www.boconlineshop.com/shop/en/uk/ryval-single-stage-two-gauge-regulator £54 for a acetylene reg
[10:56] <eroomde> x-f: yes, that's the joule-thompson effect
[10:56] <infaddict> mattbrejza: thats reasonable. i dont mind £50 ish for long term use.
[10:57] <eroomde> it's not that weird really, quite epxlicable :) hydrogen exhibits the same
[10:57] <eroomde> helium sorry *
[10:57] <sq5kvs> x-f: right
[10:58] <sq5kvs> that's why is better for some high speed guns for example
[10:58] <sq5kvs> I mean with km/s speed
[10:58] <x-f> ok, not weird, but unusual then :)
[10:59] <eroomde> yes unusual
[10:59] <eroomde> they have weak intermolecular forces at room temperatures
[10:59] <eroomde> this effect isn't true at all temperatures, just down to (i forget) about -50
[11:00] <infaddict> anyone got a BOC account to check Hydrogen cylinder prices? wont show them to me unless i sign in.
[11:00] <eroomde> so when you increase the distance between molecules (letting it exapnd), you're not 'doing work' (using energy to pull the inter-molecular forces apart) to such a great extent
[11:00] <eroomde> that energy comes from the gases internal temperature
[11:01] <eroomde> so if no other work is being put in (it's not beign heated from outside) the gas cools down
[11:01] <infaddict> also mattbrejza, BOC page for Hydrogen cylinder links to a special Hydrogen regulator which is £156! Wonder what difference is. http://www.boconlineshop.com/shop/en/uk/boc-8500-series-hydrogen-%28h2%29-regulator
[11:01] <sq5kvs> x-f: another interesting thing is the sound speed in hydrogen, ~ four times faster than in air
[11:02] <mattbrejza> its boc branded
[11:02] <eroomde> there's a sort of opposite effect where collisions convert kinetic energy into potential energy, and so if you expand the gas there are fewer collisions per second, so less internal energy being stored as potential energy
[11:02] <eroomde> so the temperature actually increases
[11:02] <gonzo_> it's just one of their std regs with a h2 coupling on it
[11:02] <eroomde> this second effect dominates with H and He, vs the first effect dominating for most other gases
[11:02] <mattbrejza> its also two stage, which is probably important for Science stuff, but not so much in making sure gas comes out slowly
[11:03] <gonzo_> I've had to ring BOC for a price, as the local depot could not quote me. But then have to order the bottle from the local depot,. as BOC would not take orders. Strange way to work
[11:04] <infaddict> if its cheaper i wonder why everybody doesnt use it. maybe harder to get a hold of (party places dont stock it) and people could be a bit scared perhaps.
[11:04] <x-f> thanks for the explanation, eroomde, i didn't know the theory behind this effect
[11:04] <eroomde> no probs
[11:04] <mattbrejza> yea, balloonhydrogen.co.uk doesnt exist
[11:04] <eroomde> as i said, this is only true at a certain range of temperatures and pressures
[11:05] <luteijn|pc1pcl> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CgWHbpMVQ1U <= probably contributing factor when most people make choice between H and He
[11:06] <infaddict> haha luteijn|pc1pcl
[11:06] <mattbrejza> also for your first flight, £100 on He isnt so bad, seeing as you probably bought everything else too
[11:07] <infaddict> true. but the cheaper i can make a launch, the more I can do ;-)
[11:07] <eroomde> yep!
[11:08] <eroomde> we are ahving to return about 50 large bottle of hydrogen back to BOC every few weeks, only half empty
[11:08] <eroomde> because we can only use them down to about 90 bar
[11:08] <eroomde> so if peeps want effectively limitless hydrogen, come here
[11:08] <infaddict> yer, bit of a waste, we could use that!
[11:08] <eroomde> yep
[11:09] <sq5kvs> anyway, I have never tried produce the hydrogen (in serious amount of course) but it's really easy and cheap.. But, because of nature of this channel....
[11:09] <adamgreig> it's almost certainly not worth trying to produce yourself
[11:10] <eroomde> agreed
[11:10] <gonzo_> making it fast enough is prob the issue
[11:10] <eroomde> it's quite hard to make a useful source of compressed hydrogen in a safe way, cheaply, at home
[11:10] <gonzo_> or the complexity of storing it till needed
[11:10] <gonzo_> snap
[11:10] <sq5kvs> yes, it's hard, right
[11:11] <eroomde> you could throw ali and sodium hydroxide into a pressure vessel and then quickly shut the lid and run away
[11:11] <eroomde> that is both cheap, and at home, but failed on the 'safe' bit

[18:42] <mfa298> most people seem to go somewhere between 434.2 and 434.6

[18:44] <fxmulder> I've been using aprs here in the US, more complicated and I'm curious because wiht rtty you can see the frequency drift whereas I don't think you can with afsk
[18:45] <mfa298> In the US I suspect you'll be looking at a suitable Amateur radio band as I'm not sure you have ISM at 434MHz.
[18:46] <mfa298> I think other bits of europe (where AR is allowed airborne) have also used 2m for rtty and other modes

[18:58] <mfa298> fxmulder: as you've been looking at APRS I assume you have an AR license so presumably you could use any AR band. There shouldn't be a need to use ISM bands in that case. In the UK we're only using ISM bands because the AR license doesn't allow airborne use.
