[09:01] <jcoxon> not as hard as ublox
[09:01] <number10> save me reading - there are two rfm96 - what is everyone using
[09:02] <jcoxon> unfortuantely there are a few versions
[09:02] <jcoxon> in the world the one you want is RFM69HW
[09:02] <jcoxon> but there is another version repackaged for china called RFM69H (no W which means word)

[09:07] <jcoxon> in urban environment (london) i was getting 100 - 200m
[09:08] <jcoxon> in the country a bit more but would need to actually characterise it
[09:08] <jcoxon> which requires a bit of walking!
[09:08] <Vaizki> right so basically backyard range
[09:08] <jcoxon> yeah
[09:08] <jcoxon> but thats with suboptimal antenna placement etc
[09:09] <jcoxon> so if your friend was say 500m to the north, placing a small (as is 868mhz) moxon antenna should get you that far
[09:10] <jcoxon> we got 0.5km out to sea in the summer

[11:42] <AndyEsser> eroomde: :)
[11:43] <AndyEsser> just trying to get that sine wave plotted like you showed me yesterday
[11:44] <AndyEsser> http://pastebin.com/WvM5mdb2
[11:44] <AndyEsser> this is what I've got so far - but the graph is empty
[11:45] <eroomde> s/arange/linspace
[11:46] <eroomde> also, i would import numpy as something other than 'math' becayse 'math' is a python library itself, so that looks a bit confusing
[11:46] <eroomde> the usual convention is to import is as np
[11:46] <eroomde> it's just because typing numpy the whole time gets boring
[11:47] <eroomde> scipy (which is a big library of numerical methods for python - differential equation solvers, linear algebra tools, filter design, etc etc etc) is often imported as sp
[11:48] mbales (~mbales@wsip-72-215-186-162.sb.sd.cox.net) left irc: Quit: mbales
[11:48] <AndyEsser> ah ok
[11:48] <AndyEsser> I think I did it as math because at first I thought it was called mathpy not numpy
[11:48] <eroomde> but to answer your question, linspace(x,y,z) is what you want - it makes z points spaced linearly evenly between x and y
[11:48] <AndyEsser> ha
[11:48] <AndyEsser> perfect
[11:48] <AndyEsser> thanks
[11:48] <AndyEsser> that works now :)
[11:49] <eroomde> arange(x,y,z) returns points between x and y with a step of z between them
[11:49] <eroomde> so if z is bigger than (y - x) then you'll only get one point
[11:49] <eroomde> which is what you had
[11:50] <eroomde> eg arange(4,10,2) = 4, 6, 8
[11:50] <eroomde> but arange(4,10,11) = 4 as the next one would be 15 which is greater than 10, the stop value
[11:50] <eroomde> do you follow?
[11:52] <eroomde> there is also logspace and lots of other useful functions. logspace especially useful if you start messing with radio and ham stuff as bode plots used to describe filters and things are on log spacing, so you can generatee evenly spaced points on a log scale. anyhoo, can cross that bridge when you come to it
[11:53] <eroomde> you can also embed pictures and youtube videos and so on into ipython notebook. really good if you want to keep tracks on, say, an online video lecture which you then want to see if you can understand by implementing what it describes in code underneath. It helps me stay organised anyway.
[11:58] <eroomde> there are some people clay-pigeon shooting about half a mile away across the fields
[11:58] <eroomde> dad keeps marching around talking about how 'it's like the bloody Somme'
[11:59] <AndyEsser> eroomde: yep I follow about arange
[12:02] <eroomde> coolio
[12:02] <eroomde> right, should go and be bdayish with parents
[12:02] <eroomde> good luck
[12:05] <AndyEsser> have fun

[12:14] <fsphil> nice!
[12:17] <bertrik> yes, I was wondering if the code would work at all, but apparently it's doing something right
[12:21] <fsphil> what did you do to get it working?
[12:21] <bertrik> I enabled the "low data rate optimization" bit on the transmitter side
[12:23] <bertrik> I also changed the sample rate from 96000 to 64000, not sure how much of an impact that has, I'll experiment with it a bit more

[18:36] <mattbrejza> fog seems like its clearing quite quickly somehow
[18:37] <russss> fog isn't a constraint anyway, apparently that had a 0% chance of constraint violation earlier
[18:37] <adamgreig> quite bold
[18:40] <jcoxon> its quite foggy
[18:40] <russss> that's california for you
[18:40] <mattbrejza> so why droneship not land landing this time?
[18:40] <adamgreig> orbit for jason-3
[18:40] <mattbrejza> ok
[18:40] <adamgreig> doesn't permit first stage to fly all the way back
[18:40] <russss> also apparently they didn't get environmental permission for landing at Vandenberg
[18:40] <russss> yet
[18:40] <Laurenceb_> fog seems to be clearing a little

[18:41] <Laurenceb_> oh
[18:41] <russss> vehicle can abort up to T-0, and it has done so before
[18:41] <Laurenceb_> 30s to go then
[18:41] <adamgreig> hmm
[18:41] <adamgreig> LD won't abort after t-10s rather then
[18:42] <adamgreig> vehicle can abort itself

[19:04] <mikestir> anyone know what they do for guidance on the landing? is it radar or lidar guided or just gps?
[19:04] <mikestir> because unless one of the former I'd imagine it's pretty hard to cope with anything other than totally calm seas
[19:05] <russss> they have radar at least

[19:08] <russss> same problem as last time then
[19:08] <adamgreig> they hit the ship but too quickly, sad
[19:08] <adamgreig> yea
[19:09] <AndyEsser> did it splode?
[19:09] <adamgreig> presumably
[19:09] <fsphil> rapid disassembly
[19:09] <Lunar_Lander> did elon shout a lot?
[19:09] <AndyEsser> "We're not standing upright" - that suggests it might still be intact
[19:09] <adamgreig> i don't think it survives falling over?
[19:09] <russss> as we saw last time there's still enough propellant to produce a relatively significant boom
[19:09] <Lunar_Lander> on landing 2 it fell over and detonated
[19:10] <fsphil> "It's just a scratch..."
[19:10] <AndyEsser> Yea, I imagine it's not done too well
[19:10] <AndyEsser> And I guess they like to avoid phrases like "exploded"
[19:11] <fsphil> I wonder if it would've stayed upright on that barge even if it had landed
[19:12] <Vaizki> yea they say "lost" or something like that
[19:12] <kc2pit> "That one burned down, fell over, and then sank into the ocean."
[19:13] <adamgreig> guess the next one will have reinforced landing legs ;)
[19:13] <fsphil> turns out launching a rocket into space, and then slowing and landing from supersonic speeds on a barge floating in the ocean is difficult. who knew!
[19:14] <fsphil> I imagine it'll be a while before they release the video
[19:15] <fsphil> assuming the memory card survived
[19:15] <adamgreig> they said couple hours
[19:15] <fsphil> oh! that's pretty good
[19:15] <adamgreig> sounds like they do still have satellite link to the barge
[19:15] <fsphil> I was thinking days
[19:15] <eroomde> this KE management thing due to not being able to throttle down enough makes it especially hard
[19:15] <Vaizki> it still makes me wonder that they didn't come up with any kind of bounce up nets, airbags, whatnot. Landing upright with no safety mechanism is of course ballsy as hell.
[19:16] <eroomde> that's not a constraint i would fancy having at all
[19:16] <fsphil> the structure of the rocket probably wouldn't handle being sideways in gravity
[19:16] <fsphil> I think they're quite fragile
[19:17] <eroomde> mmm i don't think you have much chance of surving falling over
[19:17] <SpeedEvil> If the leg fell off, it has burst and exploded
[19:18] <fsphil> does the fuel react with the air?
[19:18] <SpeedEvil> yes.
[19:18] <fsphil> I suppose lots of parts of the rocket are still really hot
[19:18] <SpeedEvil> But even without that, it explodes
[19:18] <SpeedEvil> it can't explode (flammably) unless it bursts
[19:18] Ian_ (4d66af83@gateway/web/freenode/ip. left irc: Ping timeout: 252 seconds
[19:19] <Laurenceb_> they should have gone with hot air ballute
[19:19] <SpeedEvil> It's a fragile container being dropped hard on a steel deck with stuff poking out from it
[19:19] <SpeedEvil> At 60PSI or so
[19:19] <SpeedEvil> :)
[19:19] Ian_ (4d66af83@gateway/web/freenode/ip. joined #highaltitude.
[19:19] <eroomde> the fuel is keroscene which is not especially explody in air
[19:20] <eroomde> just burney, if there's enough activation energy
[19:20] <eroomde> with residual lox however
[19:20] <Laurenceb_> I wonder if the FTS gets triggered
[19:24] <kc2pit> With LOX, around, you hope the kerosene ignites immediately. If it has time to mix a little, things get all detonatey. But since there's probably still stuff on fire coming out of the engine or turbopumps that's unlikely.
[19:24] <Vaizki> US used to make incendiary bombs from kerosene and oxidizer
[19:27] <eroomde> kc2pit: back-in-the-day, when working on experimental lox-kero engines, there was an upsetting phenomenon in which, if the engine failed to ignite, the chamber would fill with lox and keroscene as the injectors kept pumping it in
[19:27] <eroomde> and extremely cool lox would mix with the kero and form a sort of fridgid high-explosive wax
[19:27] <kc2pit> That sounds like a good thing to be a very long distance from.
[19:27] <eroomde> most of the engines were angled down for such tests so that this lump of high-explosive wax would slump out of the nozzle
[19:28] <eroomde> when that happened you would gingerly walk away and wait a while for it to warm up and the lox evaporate
[19:29] <Vaizki> sounds like my first born after a meal
[19:32] <mikestir> only in that case the hazard tends not to evaporate unfortunately :)
[19:35] <Laurenceb_> cmon need photos
[19:36] <kc2pit> Of the crashed rocket, the exploding engine tests, or the aftermath of Vaizki's kid?

[19:49] <eroomde> i can't internet
[19:50] <gurlavie_> Hi all, I am coaching two schools which are on a tight budget in Executing a HAB project. Any recommendation for a budget camera and a video recorder? Because of geography and winds, there is a very high probability that we will not get the payload back.
[19:51] <mattbrejza> 808 #16 camera from ebay
[19:51] <mattbrejza> £30
[19:51] <mattbrejza> combine with a second hand canon camera if you want good stills
[19:52] <craag> If you're not using it already and your budget stretches, the pi in the sky will give you (small) live pictures.
[19:53] <daveake> I'd go with that :p
[19:53] <daveake> Then recovery is less important
[19:54] <daveake> whereabouts would the launches be, and what tracking do they intend to use ?
[19:56] <eroomde> i would recommend the canon camera thing mattbrejza suggested. There is a thing called 'CHDK' in which you write a little script that you save as a file on the camera's sd card. the canon camera than reads that script and follows it - usually people program a loop to, say, take a photo every 10s
[19:57] <eroomde> I have used this is a very basic introduction to programming with school kids (depending on their level)
[19:57] <eroomde> you can introduce the idea of loops and functions and other stuff quite easily
[19:57] <eroomde> without threatening mission-critical code on the flight computer
[19:58] <eroomde> you can also get them to then work out how long a certain size SD card would last with their script (by looking at the sizes of the photos)
[19:58] <Lunar_Lander> sounds good
[19:58] <adamgreig> the downside being you must recover the camera to get the photos
[19:58] <eroomde> and as happened one time recently, one astute ten year old noticed the jpegs were all different file sizes even though the resolution was the same, so we started talking about the idea of compression and how some pictures have more 'information' in them, and so are less compressible, than others
[19:59] <Lunar_Lander> cool
[19:59] <eroomde> and she totally got how just a picture of black sky could be much more compressed than a picture pointing down of complicated landscape
[19:59] <eroomde> oh sorry i missed the recovery bit
[19:59] <eroomde> sorry!
[19:59] <adamgreig> i think you should aim to recover somehow or other though, and then do as eroomde suggests, better photos too
[20:00] <eroomde> yes, this all assumes recovery. I'd go with PITS (which sends pictures back as everyone else has said) if you don't think it's coming home
[20:00] <eroomde> but recovery is a worthwhile aim
[20:00] <eroomde> i must be off, ttfn.
[20:00] <daveake> yup
[20:00] <daveake> awaiting a reply as to how hard recovery might be ...
[20:00] <fsphil> the data rate is quite low, so the live images won't be nearly as good quality as a proper camera
[20:00] <eroomde> no indeed

[20:17] <Evidlo> drowe67: yes I have one of those
[20:19] <Evidlo> drowe67: I'm thinking about building a 3rd or 4th order passive filter. 1st order doesn't seem good enough to kill the first harmonic
[20:24] <SA6BSS-Mike> upploaded a quick comparison between sdrplay and a rt-sdr tuned to a 70cm beacon 120km away, its choppy as my computer cant handle the recording program with two instances of hd sdr running.
[20:24] <SA6BSS-Mike> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aAXW-QKm06U&feature=youtu.be
[20:24] <SA6BSS-Mike> not much difference if any at all
[20:28] <Laurenceb_> russss: oh wow
[20:28] <Laurenceb_> thats unexpected
[20:28] <Laurenceb_> so good news I guess

[20:31] <mattbrejza> the ones that say vlcsnap are from the 808 cam
[20:31] <daveake> OK Israel is a bit narrow so yes, that will be tricky
[20:32] <mikestir> Evidlo: if you match the PA with a low-pass L section and then follow it with a 50 ohm pi section I'd imagine that would be ok. construction wise use SMT with ground on both sides and plenty of stitching vias
[20:34] <Evidlo> mikestir: Can't this be done by hand? ie. Manhattan style construction with homemade inductors?
[20:34] <mikestir> yeah probably at 433 as long as the leads are a bear minimum in length
[20:35] <mikestir> bare*
[20:35] <adamgreig> so much additional pain though
[20:35] <adamgreig> $10 gets you ten PCBs delivered
[20:35] <mikestir> with SMT you should find it behaves exactly as designed
[20:35] <adamgreig> basically cheaper than the copper clad you'd use in manhattan style
[20:35] <mikestir> if you use leaded components it will need trimming
[20:37] LWK (LWK@pdpc/supporter/student/lwk) joined #highaltitude.
[20:37] <Evidlo> mikestir: it will be smd eventually. but should the inductors be hand wound?
[20:38] <Evidlo> ie. pick the smd caps at common values and trim the inductors
[20:39] <mikestir> you'll get better results with bought inductors
[20:39] <mikestir> you can still prototype with SMT parts on a bit of coppper clad
[20:40] <mikestir> just cut it with a scalpel
[20:40] <Evidlo> How much does accuracy matter for this situation though? Isn't the 1st harmonic at 866Mhz? So the cutoff needs to be between 433 and 866
[20:41] <mikestir> it will also affect the matching though
[20:42] <mikestir> at UHF the inductors you would need are likely to be bent pieces of wire
[20:42] <Evidlo> Is 433MHz VHF or UHF?

[20:42] <mikestir> >300 MHz is UHF
[20:43] <mikestir> I'm not saying you shouldn't try it with junk box parts, especially since you have a tracking generator
[20:44] <Evidlo> yeah I put my specifications into a calculator and it said to be able to use 1 turn of wire my loop needs to have an radius of 1mm and length of 4cm
[20:46] <Ian_> I gurlavie, I guess the political geography might now be conducive for asking for your HAB back if it lands over the border. Fast up/down with an overfill?
[20:48] <Ian_> The 808 #16 is an RF noisy camera so keep it away from your GPS. If flying latex then put it up or down the train a little.

[21:30] <mikestir> is your signal source 50 ohm already or are you designing the power amplifier yourself too?

[21:34] <SA6BSS-Mike> *dorji
[21:34] <mikestir> but yes, if you feel you need an extra filter then it can just be symmetrical 50 ohm in and out
[21:34] <mikestir> or rather, should be
[21:35] <SA6BSS-Mike> it should be yes
[21:35] <Evidlo> Heh, trying to remember how to calculate input impedance for butterworth
[21:36] <mikestir> see if you had bowick you'd be done by now :)
[21:37] <mikestir> it has tables of prototype filters for 1 ohm at 1 Hz and gives you the scaling formula so you can generate the component values for any frequency and any required impedance transformation
